When Christmas Hurts Book Description :

While the rest of the world around us becomes excited and enamored with our cultures celebration of Christmas, some of us struggle through the holiday season overcome with clouds of depression and battles with fear and dread. Fractured relationships, dysfunction, compromised finances, loss of loved ones, isolation, and any number of other circumstances become even harder to navigate due to the often unrealistic expectations of the holiday. Loneliness magnifies, stress accelerates, busyness intensifies, and sadness can overwhelm us. I have written When Christmas Hurts from the depths of my own pain and experience in hopes of helping those who struggle with this season for similar and various reasons. Gods Word and his principles of love, power, and truth are woven into every element of encouragement. Practical suggestions and challenges are presented to help navigate this often stressful and difficult season. The passion behind this book is to bring hope and healing to hearts that are hurting, helping them break free from the burdens of stress and dread and find a new revelation of celebrating Christmas with joy and simplicity.

Merry Christmas Mrs President Book Description :

BAH HUMBUG: STUDENT SUSPENDED OVER CHRISTMAS CHEER! Kennedy Middle School student Megan Walker was suspended yesterday, the first day of school for the new academic year. Her offense? You might think it was vandalism, tardiness, or lack of respect but you'd be wrong. The sixth grader's crime was, of all things, showing a little early holiday spirit. In flagrant violation of the student dress code, Megan was caught wearing a snowman shirt bearing the "offensive" slogan, "Have a Holly, Jolly Christmas." Why, the nerve of this plucky little twelve-year-old! Turns out local school policy precludes such religious sentiment, and Megan's stunt earned her the rest of the week off from school. (Sounds to me like Christmas came a little early for one Kennedy student.) Megan was warned not to wear the shirt when she returns to school next week, but from what school officials told me yesterday they were "far from reassured that she'd comply." Hmm, sounds like a challenge to me! Stay tuned for the Santa Standoff as we bring it to you live from the halls of Kennedy Middle School

When Helping Hurts Book Description :

With more than 300,000 copies in print, When Helping Hurts is a paradigm-forming contemporary classic on the subject of poverty alleviation. Poverty is much more than simply a lack of material resources, and it takes much more than donations and handouts to solve it. When Helping Hurts shows how some alleviation efforts, failing to consider the complexities of poverty, have actually (and unintentionally) done more harm than good. But it looks ahead. It encourages us to see the dignity in everyone, to empower the materially poor, and to know that we are all uniquely needy—and that God in the gospel is reconciling all things to himself. Focusing on both North American and Majority World contexts, When Helping Hurts provides proven strategies for effective poverty alleviation, catalyzing the idea that sustainable change comes not from the outside in, but from the inside out.

When Holidays Hurt Book Description :

Find fullness of joy during the holidays—especially for the brokenhearted. Divorce. Financial stress. Chronic illness. Losing a loved one. Experiencing any of these situations during the year is already difficult. But the holiday season, once joyful and happy, can heighten this pain even more. Author Bo Stern has spent the past two Christmases struggling to connect with the joy of the season. As she has watched her husband, Steve, struggle with terminal ALS, Bo has quietly felt her spirit for the season fade—and has noticed countless others suffering the same way. Through stories and scriptures, Bo offers readers a way to redeem what can often become painful days—Thanksgiving, Christmas, birthdays and anniversaries, milestones such as weddings and graduations, and more. At the end of each devotion, Bo gently guides readers to engage with these holidays and special occasions in different ways that offer a tangible outlet for healing. At the heart of this message is that Christ came—to bring hope and healing to those who are hurting. “Jesus didn’t come to cheer us up. He came into the shadowlands we call home to set us free. He came to untangle us from the despair that wraps itself around our joy and peace and purpose. It seems, then, that hopelessness is the very first qualification for receiving the bright hope of Christ’s coming. Perhaps you are exactly where you need to be to experience the miracle after all...” Trim Size: 5 x 7

A Beauty That Hurts Book Description :

Though a 1996 peace accord brought a formal end to a conflict that had lasted for thirty-six years, Guatemala's violent past continues to scar its troubled present and seems destined to haunt its uncertain future. George Lovell brings to this revised and expanded edition of A Beauty That Hurts decades of fieldwork throughout Guatemala, as well as archival research. He locates the roots of conflict in geographies of inequality that arose during colonial times and were exacerbated by the drive to develop Guatemala's resources in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The lines of confrontation were entrenched after a decade of socioeconomic reform between 1944 and 1954 saw modernizing initiatives undone by a military coup backed by U.S. interests and the CIA. A United Nations Truth Commission has established that civil war in Guatemala claimed the lives of more that 200,000 people, the vast majority of them indigenous Mayas. Lovell weaves documentation about what happened to Mayas in particular during the war years with accounts of their difficult personal situations. Meanwhile, an intransigent elite and a powerful military continue to benefit from the inequalities that triggered armed insurrection in the first place. Weak and corrupt civilian governments fail to impose the rule of law, thus ensuring that Guatemala remains an embattled country where postwar violence and drug-related crime undermine any semblance of orderly, peaceful life.

Love Hurts Book Description :

'A few seconds ago, I wanted to die. Now I know the reality is I just don't want to live. I never have from the moment I started falling, twenty-one and a half years ago. I'm alive. Shit.' Jeff Randall originally wrote his memoir by hand, the ink spattering on the page whenever he was writing about something painful and looping beautifully whenever he was recalling happier moments. He wrote it in a matter of weeks and delivered it to his estranged wife in an attempt to explain the demons that had haunted him for so long and that had been responsible for destroying their relationship. Love Hurts is the powerful true story of a boy whose tormented childhood was characterised by violence and isolation. He was raised in a fragmented, chaotic family, in a world where debt and poverty were the norm. From a young age, he yearned to escape but was sucked into an ever-decreasing spiral of bad choices and self-loathing. This brutally honest book charts the life of a boy who just wanted to be loved. And by confronting the nightmare of his childhood and coming to terms with his past, he has learned to love himself.
