Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw is best known for the curveball Vin Scully dubbed "Public Enemy Number One." But Clayton sees his ability to throw a baseball as just one way he lives out his passion for God. In Arise, he teams up with his wife, Ellen, to share what they have learned about making a difference in the world while living out one's God-given dreams. Long before Clayton began his pro baseball career, he and Ellen made a commitment to live out their faith in Christ by giving to others--and they see their success on and off the field as blessings to be shared with those who are hurting most.

Your dreams hold the key to a better, fuller life. There is a reason we dream at night. It's not random nonsense. When we are dreaming, we are thinking on a much deeper, more insightful level than when we're awake. When we're dreaming, we're actually problem solving...it's just in a different language. Our minds are speaking to us in codes: warning, helping, and guiding us through our constantly evolving situations in life. The mind, through dreams, is trying to alert us to problems it wants fixed. The truth is, our best thinking isn't done in the shower, it's done while we dream. In fact, when we say, "Let me sleep on it," what we're really saying is, "Let me dream on it." In this easy-to-use guide, renowned dream analyst Lauri Quinn Loewenberg gives you the tools to interpret the often confounding language of dreams. You will learn how to: * unlock the hidden dream communications your mind wants you to know * understand commonly occurring people, places and animals as extensions of your personality * decipher the real meaning behind nightmares like falling, drowning, and being chased * discover the big messages in seemingly small dream elements as Lauri guides you through dozens of real-life dreams * use your dreams as a tool to solve your everyday problems and effect real change in your life and relationships * reference the most important dream symbols with a comprehensive dream dictionary

In a world of fast-food meals, high-speed Internet and quick solutions, waiting is tough. Sometimes, if we don’t get a quick answer to our problems—wanting a child, a mate, a new job, a house–we feel stuck. Where is God? Has he forgotten us? No, says Marlinda Ireland, God has not forgotten! We may be caught in a “divine delay,” a time of waiting which holds a purpose and is an opportunity to learn enduring lessons. Learn from the biblical stories of men and women who persevered in waiting for God and discover four primary causes of delayed answers to prayer. Then, learn three secrets that help readers mature during a “heavenly holding pattern.” Ireland shows how to value a time of waiting for what is desired, and offers encouragement and confidence in God’s all-knowing love. Step-by-step, through sound biblical principles, she lifts readers out of their frustrations into a renewed passion for the future.

As I reflect on my memories, I often break down periods of life into four areas. I have heard throughout life about the golden days or the winter of ones life. I never quite understood why this period was important but it always intrigued me. Well, I have reached those golden days of life and as I look back, I find that life is pretty standard and everyone goes through the same or similar experiences at some time along the way. I am taking the liberty of using references to the progression of life from experiences of many with whom I have had the pleasure of knowing and befriending and from experiences in my own life. Join Mary Lee in between the pages of this book and witness the complete changes in her life as a positive experience for others in future years.

Tears in the Valley

The tears that flowed from Calvary were not those of an angry man but of a lonely man. A man forsaken by both God and man. All through the valley, his eyes were set on the mountain, on the joy that would be his. The valley is not the end of the road. It is simply a land surrounded by mountains. We all experience the ups and downs of life, and most times we feel like breaking out in tears. It is not a sign of weakness to cry while going through tough times. Even Jesus wept. The promise is that weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning. It takes faith to walk through the valley and maintain a positive attitude. Keep your eyes on the mountain while your tears are flowing in the valley, for you shall rise again. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. (Psalm 23v4)

Hold On to Your Dreams is the first biography of the musician and composer Arthur Russell, one of the most important but least known contributors to New York’s downtown music scene during the 1970s and 1980s. With the exception of a few dance recordings, including “Is It All Over My Face?” and “Go Bang! #5,” Russell’s pioneering music was largely forgotten until 2004, when the posthumous release of two albums brought new attention to the artist. This revival of interest gained momentum with the issue of additional albums and the documentary film Wild Combination. Based on interviews with more than seventy of his collaborators, family members, and friends, Hold On to Your Dreams provides vital new information about this singular, eccentric musician and his role in the boundary-breaking downtown music scene. Tim Lawrence traces Russell’s odyssey from his hometown of Oskaloosa, Iowa, to countercultural San Francisco, and eventually to New York, where he lived from 1973 until his death from AIDS-related complications in 1992. Resisting definition while dreaming of commercial success, Russell wrote and performed new wave and disco as well as quirky rock, twisted folk, voice-cello dub, and hip-hop-inflected pop. “He was way ahead of other people in understanding that the walls between concert music and popular music and avant-garde music were illusory,” comments the composer Philip Glass. “He lived in a world in which those walls weren’t there.” Lawrence follows Russell across musical genres and through such vital downtown music spaces as the Kitchen, the Loft, the Gallery, the Paradise Garage, and the Experimental Intermedia Foundation. Along the way, he captures Russell’s openness to sound, his commitment to collaboration, and his uncompromising idealism.

Francoise Maricle was born two months prematurely in a Japanese internment camp in Indonesia during World War Two. She was in three different camps with her mother and older brother for the next three years. She survived in spite of the horrible physical and mental conditions. After the war she and her family had to leave the tropics they had loved so much to return to cold, damp, and overcrowded Netherlands. They were not welcomed by the European Dutch because of the severe housing shortage due to the war. She continued her struggle to overcome the physical and emotional challenges without any help from her family or any one else. She knew that she needed to find peace and tranquility somehow, somewhere. She met her husband in Germany and later immigrated to the United States. She is very happy and grateful to be living here. Francoise Maricle was counseling women who had been in very abusive situations. She found out that she needed to tell her story to be able to connect with them. They had only seen how she was living now. After hearing what she had endured they were much more willing to work on their own problems. She has been asked to give talks about her life story and has been interviewed on public radio as well as on public television. It has taken her fifteen years to write the book because of the deeply buried emotions that surfaced while writing. There were long periods of time where she couldn't think about the book or write at all. She now lives in Arizona, a place she loves because of the wonderful climate and the wide open spaces, with her husband of 44 years.

As the future of our democratic society, youth from U.S.-born and immigrant backgrounds alike will need to make informed decisions on our diverse nation's behalf. To do so, young adults need to be provided with access to accurate information and varied perspectives about immigration. In Immigration: The Ultimate Teen Guide, Tatyana Kleyn (an immigrant herself) examines the myths and realities of immigration, as well as the laws and policies that regulate it. She explores a number of issues associated with immigration, including cultural clashes and discrimination, the debate on language, undocumented immigrants, and what it means to be an American. The book includes an overview of the nation's history with immigration, definitions of relevant terms, and recent statistical and demographic information. It also discusses why and how many immigrants make the journey to the United States. Other aspects the book addresses include undocumented immigrants and refugees/asylees, laws and policies that either support or hinder immigration, and how young immigrants can reconcile their competing identities. Aiming to generate a discussion on immigration with factual and contemporary information, real life stories, experiences, and quotes from teenagers and young adults, Immigration: The Ultimate Teen Guide presents a comprehensive and engaging approach to informing readers about the varied ways immigration is experienced, viewed, and disputed.

They encounter so many varied complications along the way, plus the arrival of a grandchild Carol adores and would miss terribly by fulfilling her idea. Is it any wonder she doubts if the "Dream" will ever materialise? Would it just remain a fantasy? It's certainly a troubled journey, but worth following to find out the outcome!

Not everybody gets to go home. Not everybody wants to go back home. I, however, had always wanted to see the land where my grandparents had been born. All my life, I had been curious about life on the other side of the pond, where my ancestors had walked and talked. I too wanted to walk the streets and see the scenery at fifty-five degrees latitude, but I never thought in my wildest dreams that I would go to Poland as a clown. So begins a series of seven journeys that would take Gabriella Sheldon around the world as a volunteer. In Poland, she helped in a wheelchair distribution, but later she would witness the atrocities of Auschwitz. She lived and taught at a school in rural China, and she also got to see such famous sites as the Great Wall. She was a clown, a teacher, an orphan caretaker, and a traveler. Her roles varied, and so did the cultures she visited. She studied Polish, Russian, Mandarin, Spanish, and Lithuanian, never gaining fluency, yet always learning. Each journey was a step of faith as she bought her plane tickets and made her plans, often joining strangers in an outreach. As you read Dream Trekker, you will find yourself immersed in the daily life of a volunteer.

During the 1960s, a bushel of B–movies were produced and aimed at the predominantly teenage drive-in movie audience. At first teens couldn’t get enough of the bikini-clad beauties dancing on the beach or being wooed by Elvis Presley, but by 1966 young audiences became more interested in the mini-skirted, go-go boot wearing, independent-minded gals of spy spoofs, hot rod movies and biker flicks. Profiled herein are fifty sexy, young actresses that teenage girls envied and teenage boys desired including Quinn O’Hara, Melody Patterson, Hilarie Thompson, Donna Loren, Pat Priest, Meredith MacRae, Arlene Martel, Cynthia Pepper, and Beverly Washburn. Some like Sue Ane Langdon, Juliet Prowse, Marlyn Mason, and Carole Wells, appeared in major studio productions while others, such as Regina Carrol, Susan Hart, Angelique Pettyjohn and Suzie Kaye were relegated to drive-in movies only. Each biography contains a complete filmography. Some also include the actresses’ candid comments and anecdotes about their films, the people they worked with, and their feelings about acting. A list of web sites that provide further information is also included.

Since Joshua Steckel began work at a Brooklyn public high school as its first-ever college guidance counselor, every one of the hundreds of graduates he has counseled has been accepted to college, many to top-flight schools with all expenses paid. But getting in is only one small part of the drama of his students’ stories. In a riveting work of narrative nonfiction—winner of a Studs and Ida Terkel award—Hold Fast to Dreams follows the lives of ten of Josh’s students as they navigate the vast and obstacle-ridden landscape of college in America, where students for whom the stakes of education are highest find unequal access and inadequate support. Among the ten unforgettable students we meet are: Mike, who writes his personal essays from a homeless shelter and is torn between his longing to get away to an idyllic college campus and his fear of leaving his mother and brothers in desperate circumstances; Santiago, a talented, motivated, and undocumented student, battles bureaucracy and low expectations as he seeks a life outside the low-wage world of hard manual labor to which his immigration status threatens to consign him; and Ashley, who pursues her ambition to become a doctor with almost superhuman drive but then forges a path that challenges received wisdom about the value of an elite, liberal arts education. At a time when the idea of "college for all" is alternately embraced and challenged, this important book uncovers, in heartrending detail, the many ways the American education system fails in its promise as a ladder to opportunity. But it also provides hope in its portrayal of the extraordinary intelligence, resilience, and everyday heroics of the young people whose futures are too often lamented or ignored and whose voices, insights, and vision our colleges—and our country—desperately need. Hold Fast to Dreams will grab you on the first page and will stay with you for a long time. It should be required reading for anyone who cares about the right to education in America.

More than four dozen pieces of microfiction that are set in and around the northern Irish city of Derry carry the reader to places of incredible beauty and vicious nightmare, times of absolute joy and moments of complete terror. In stories which tread a blurred line between poetry and prose, a never named and not-quite described narrator reveals a story both national and personal, played out upon a canvas filled with stunning landscapes and fascinating characters. ----"I say it again, "this is pretty much the end of the earth," and she just smiles. "Well, certainly," I admit, "there are the Faroes out lost in the fog somewhere beyond and even past that Iceland sure, but that's really only for Vikings and drunk Germans who like to get naked in the hot pools," and she just laughs."
