Embrace the Struggle

One of the leading stars in the "positive thinking" movement, Zig Ziglar has made a career out of telling people how to have a positive attitude, no matter what their circumstances are. But when a fall down a stairway onto a marble floor leaves him with a head injury, he is challenged with how to put the principles he'd been speaking about into practice. Ziglar's willingness to be transparent has him back writing and speaking with renewed energy before audiences in the tens of thousands to show that life on life's terms is still well worth living. Embrace the Struggle affirms the validity of the principles Ziglar has held true his entire life and includes not only his account of living positively through difficult circumstances; it also includes heartwarming stories of real people who encouraged him with how they put into practice these vital principles.

Strength for Life s Struggles

Has there ever been someone in your life who tried to break a bad habit? ... Maybe you think that the struggle is too much for the problems you face, and you wonder, perhaps, if all of this is catching God by surprise. Certainly not!

Strength for Life s Struggles

Has there ever been a time when you ever said the following words: Oh Lord give me strength? Was there ever a time when it seemed as if your strength was "failing" or "leaving" you? The weighted "blocks of life" are continually falling down on you, and you feel no relief at all. Your "tank of tolerance" is also at an all time low, and on top of that your "day-to-day" items in the "stuff bag" called "life" is just about full. Well, I have great news for you! Where your "strength" falls short, God's strength stands up! For the bible declares in II Corinthians 12:9, "My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness." In fact, Jesus has a 100% guarantee on any affliction, struggle or trial you may be experiencing. This 100% guarantee is by way of the "Afflictions Benefits Package." The Lord defines it in these terms in Psalm 34:19, "Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all." In other words, it's a "fixed fight" and a for sure win despite the hardships encountered. Each morning that heaven claps it's hands and says "wake up," we've got to know that we are on God's mind. He's ready to give us the assurance, guidance, and strength that we need for our journey through all life's struggles.

Chicago Catholics and the Struggles within Their Church

Chicago Catholics and the Struggles within Their Church

What might one expect to learn from a probability sample study of the Archdiocese of Chicago? Can one form a national portrait of Catholics in the United States from data about Chicago? Certainly, Chicago is unique in its judgments about its clergy. As the eminent Catholic sociologist Andrew M. Greeley argues, it is this very difference that makes rigorous comparisons between Chicago Catholics and other Catholic subpopulations possible. He suggests that history and geography provide a basis for understanding the development of the Catholic Church not just in this specific area, but also in the entire United States. The Catholic Archdiocese of Chicago it composed of two counties, Lake and Cook. At the same time the Catholic population has been pushed up against the boundary of DuPage County by racial change in the city, so that much of the west and south side Catholic population of the city has moved into the southern and western suburbs. In this research area, half of the Catholics have attended college and half of those have attended graduate school. Thus, the conventional image of Chicago as a mix of ethnic immigrant neighborhoods has to be modified—although there are still many new immigrants attending special immigrant parishes. Greeley argues that the official church in Chicago, and by inference elsewhere, has not recognized the community structures that permeate the neighborhoods, that it does not grasp the religious stories that shape its peoples’ identity, and it does not understand the intense, if selective, loyalty of the archdiocese to its leadership. As part of this argument, Greeley includes transcriptions of in-depth interviews with former Catholics. This study provides a fascinating window into the world of Catholicism in twenty-first century urban America.

Shared Struggles

I still struggle with the fact that the day I meet many families is a day that forever changes their lives. I hope they can take solace, as I do, in the knowledge that caring for their children forever changes my life too.

Shared Struggles

This book tells true and poignant stories from both sides of the physician-patient/parent relationship and provides a unique glimpse into how parents and physicians think, feel, and interact. The stories are grouped under four sections: Hope, Compassion, Communication, and Trust. Each section includes stories contributed by parents from all across the United States and by pediatricians practicing at many of the best children's hospitals throughout the country. The parents tell of interactions with physicians that had a significant impact on them and their child and offer context and insight that promote empathy and reflection. The physicians tell of interactions with patients and families that served as learning moments in their career and promote the humanization of medicine and show there is more to a physician beyond their scientific knowledge and white coat. The stories are edited by Barry P. Markovitz - a pediatrician specializing in critical care medicine who has been in practice for more than 20 years and by Ann F. Schrooten - the parent of a child born with a chronic complex condition who has more than 15 years of experience interacting with pediatric subspecialists and other healthcare professionals who cared for her son. The editors have written commentaries to the stories to provide an independent perspective on the events and messages conveyed and to encourage reflection, inquiry, and discussion. In addition to being a valuable resource for pediatricians, pediatric subspecialists, nurses and other healthcare professionals, the book will also appeal to families of children living with complex medical conditions because it shares physician encounters and behaviors many have experienced in the care of their own children. By giving a voice to both parents and physicians, the goal is to create a bridge to better understanding that can improve communication, minimize conflicts, and foster trust and compassion among physicians, patients, and families. .

Progressive Creation and the Struggles of Humanity in the Bible

Why does the Christian walk often feel like an ongoing struggle and why does God’s creation include imperfection, let alone forces that are intent on thwarting God’s creative work? In seeking a response to these questions, this book argues that the biblical accounts describe creation in terms of a progressive transformation process whereby the initially incomplete created order will reach perfection only in the fulfillment of new creation. The following discussion then outlines a comprehensive framework for the biblical theology of humanity’s struggles, centered on three key themes: corporeal temptation, deficient social structures, and the much-debated notion of spiritual warfare. The book presents an overarching canonical narrative that threads together a series of diverse biblical topics, from Job's temptation to the Atonement. The final part surveys biblical teaching on how human conduct can be aligned with God’s creative purpose, and discusses three “assignments” from Jesus to believers: to celebrate the Eucharist, to pray the Lord’s Prayer, and to fulfill the Great Commission.

The Struggles in the Life of Little Betty

This book is about all of the struggles I went through in my life.

The Struggles in the Life of Little Betty

This book is about all of the struggles I went through in my life. It's also about the kinds of abuse I suffered from the time I was four years old, including mental abuse, physical abuse, and sexual abuse. And that is just from the time I can remember. All that abuse was caused by multiple people and continued throughout my whole life. Some people who go through similar situations of abuse don't survive or they get into using drugs or drinking alcohol to cope and they end up destroying their lives. Somehow I was able to overcome all of the abuse and I became the person I am today. My children especially gave me the strength to keep moving forward! I hope this book can help people overcome difficulties in their lives. Thank you!

Messages of Encouragement

They will always be with me, for they provided me love and inspired my life with much encouragement to look at the struggles in life as challenges to go the distance and run my race with God's grace for success.

Messages of Encouragement

I’ m struggling to maintain my happiness. Life is presenting more conflicts than I expected. I am confronted by challenges in my thoughts, efforts, and dreams. If any of these phrases have risen in you heart and mind, it’s time to be encouraged! Messages of Encouragement provide inspirational words and stories of triumph over trials to uplift every reader. Our busy, complicated lives sometimes send us through situations - some small, some large - that challenges our faith, shake our courage, and threaten our strength. It may all seem like more than one heart can handle. But be encouraged! As the old saying goes, “What one heart cannot bear alone, a hundred loving hearts can bear with faith.” ( Unity- Charles and Myrtle Fillmore). Challenges can turn into triumphs as Mark 11:24 states, “Therefore I say unto you, “What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye received them, and ye shall have them” (KJV).

Black French Women and the Struggle for Equality  1848 2016

Black French Women and the Struggle for Equality, 1848–2016 explores how black women in France itself, the French Caribbean, Gorée, Dakar, Rufisque, and Saint-Louis experienced and reacted to French colonialism and how gendered readings of colonization, decolonization, and social movements cast new light on the history of French colonization and of black France. In addition to delineating the powerful contributions of black French women in the struggle for equality, contributors also look at the experiences of African American women in Paris and in so doing integrate into colonial and postcolonial conversations the strategies black women have engaged in negotiating gender and race relations à la française. Drawing on research by scholars from different disciplinary backgrounds and countries, this collection offers a fresh, multidimensional perspective on race, class, and gender relations in France and its former colonies, exploring how black women have negotiated the boundaries of patriarchy and racism from their emancipation from slavery to the second decade of the twenty-first century.

Hidden Struggles

Sometimes even the ones closest to us may not understand. Written by someone who has been there, Hidden Struggles covers some of the issues women face today in the area of purity, waiting on God, relationships, and life.

Hidden Struggles

Some struggles are often unseen to those around us as we fight an inner battle. Twenty one year old Rachel Hamilton is a voice for today's youth speaking into the issues young women grapple with. Speaking openly and honestly about her own struggles she aims to strengthen and empower others through her experiences and thoughts. Hidden Struggles covers the areas of purity, waiting, modesty, relationships, God and life.

Hidden Struggles is a guide to becoming the woman God created you to be.

Struggles for Peace and Justice

This work by Karl-Julius Reubke embodies labours of experience and reflection spanning almost 20 years. It is rich with many kinds of detail but above all Reubke’s work accomplishes something the late German philosopher Hans-Georg Gadamer called a Horizontverschmelzung, a merging of horizons in service of an act of understanding. Reubke, a German himself, a former chemist, a follower of Rudolph Steiner, a self-taught Sanskrit scholar and translator of ancient texts, sympathetically merges those horizons with an equally complex set of horizons arising from India: the post-colonial search for a coherent tradition in one of the oldest civilizations, the emergence of early modern spiritual and nationalist thinking, the complex challenges posed by Gandhi’s ethico-spiritual vision, and then finally, from the contemporary India driven and riven by the forces of globalization, the horizon of a civil/social movement inspired by Gandhi and Vinobha, namely Ekta Parishad. Reubke describes this movement, inspired and led by PV Rajagopal from the inside with a personal touch and a uncannily reflective eye. All of this is an accomplishment of some note and worthy of our attention especially as we now turn to confront how we as people of the planet will face the ecological disaster our way of living has created. This too is a task of “comprehension” which Hannah Arendt described as the work of “the unpremeditated facing up to, and resisting of, reality—whatever it may be.” - Paul Schwartzentruber, Independent Scholar and Activist, Halifax, Canada If you wish to know what Satyagraha is all about, read this candid, reflective account of the struggle for freedom and justice Gandhi and his contemporaries waged during the twentieth century and P V Rajagopal and Ekta Parishad have been engaged in during the 21st. Extremely timely and morally challenging. - Manoranjan Mohanty, Former Professor of Political Science, University of Delhi, New Delhi, India This book is invaluable in challenging us to develop nonviolent mass movements addressing the needs of those who are oppressed and suffering the most, the impoverished, the exploited, those thrown off their lands, adivasis, women, and why such movements are necessary for greater peace and justice. - Douglas Allen, Professor of Philosophy, The University of Maine, USA This brilliant book, the first major scholarly study of Ekta Parishad, demonstrates how rights-based mass mobilisations in contemporary India adapt Gandhian ideas in their struggle for justice and in negotiating state politics and policies, with grit and compassion. - Arnab Roy Chowdhury, Assistant Professor, Higher School of Economics (HSE), Moscow, Russian Federation This impressive volume addresses the topic, which is possibly the most important of our time: global solidarity. And it does so from the perspective of the global South, drawing especially on Gandhi and Ekta Parishad. The result is a very unique combination of scholarship and vision for the future that is a must-read for all students of India and Indian thought but also for those looking for inspiration in the times of global crisis and the return of nationalisms and fascisms. - Boike Rehbein, Professor, Humbolt University, Berlin, Germany In a world in deep need of global solidarity as we enter an era challenged with the Covid-19 pandemic, global economic devastation, the continuing epidemic of racism, and with an existential climate crisis, Ekta Parishad shines a bright new light for humanity and our human challenges. This book and this organization confront these challenges boldly and head-on. Jai Jagat!! - David Blake Willis, Professor, Fielding Graduate University, USA
