Jason was 2-years old when we brought his brother, Dawson, home from the hospital. I had fallen in love with mothering my first child. "Honestly, how much tougher could rearing two children instead of one be?" I thought to myself as I lay the tightly wound bundle on the couch. Jason timidly tiptoed over to see the new baby. I pulled the receiving blanket back from Dawson's face as Jason stared in wonder at his little brother. "So far, so good," I whispered tentatively to my husband, Craig, as he hung back by the door. "This won't be so difficult," I said confidently as I tried to bolster my sagging self-assurance. "Lots of women have two babies in two years. We will be fine." Like hollow promises my words fell onto our hardwood floor. Neither Craig nor I believed a single word I had said. Sadly, we both knew better. Although I have now reared two sons and launched them off into the adult world, I have not forgotten how I, as a new mom, felt. I loved God with all of my heart. My single-minded desire was to train my boys in the Lord. Without question my goal was to see my boys reach an early decision for Christ and to live for Him all the days of their lives. However, my own insecurities surfaced; I struggled with feelings of inadequacy. I have never forgotten the anxiety of those early days of mothering as I fought to catch my breath and find my bearings. Life seemed to be spinning wildly out of control and sucking me into the vortex of its madness Those deeply imbedded memories of my greatest joy intermingled with fretfulness and fear compel me to write a Bible study geared toward mothers of children of all ages. Mothering is just plain tough. There, I said it. It is full of twists and turns, ups and downs, jubilation and tribulation, ecstasy and insanity. I am sure you can relate Moms are on-call 24-hours a day, with no sick leave and no vacation days. On some days rearing children is closely akin to herding cats. Dealing with sleep deprivation and a temperamental 2-year-old can push you to the edge. A stubborn school-aged child can strain your last nerve to the breaking point. A testy teen can make you crazy. What's a mom to do? My heart's desire is to stand alongside you and to point you to Jesus. He is the source of our help and our hope. Take a good, long look into the mirror of God's Word and see Jesus " Join Jean Stockdale for a look into the mirror of God's Word for timeless truths for training toddlers to teens. She will help you apply God's profound truths and make them practical in your life. As you become a doer of the Word and not a hearer only, she will help you look into God's mirror and see a work in progress for the glory of the Lord. As you work your way through this interactive study, God will work His truths into your life. "

President Obama has declared that the standard by which all policies and policy outcomes are judged is fairness. He declared in 2011 that "we've sought to ensure that every citizen can count on some basic measure of security. We do this because we recognize that no matter how responsibly we live our lives, any one of us, at any moment, might face hard times, might face bad luck, might face a crippling illness or a layoff." And that, he says, is why we have a social safety net. He says that returning to a standard of fairness where anyone can get ahead through hard work is the "issue of our time." And perhaps it is. This book explores what it means for our economic system and our economic results to be "fair." Does it mean that everyone has a fair shot? Does it mean that everyone gets the same amount? Does it mean the government can assert the authority to forcibly take from the successful and give to the poor? Is government supposed to be Robin Hood determining who gets what? Or should the market decide that? The surprising answer: nations with free market systems that allow people to get ahead based on their own merit and achievement are the fairest of them all.

The world celebrated with the development of Artificial Intelligence in the middle of the twenty-first century and established a robot singularity. In order to create an elite standard of living, most jobs were replaces with these robots. After the discovery that the uncountable could not be coerced, the armies of robots that inhabited every part of the workforce were recalled and replaced by a robot force that was tethered by a single computer run by the central government. The Agency that once protected the nation from malicious foreign influences was turned inward and trained to hunt and eliminate the members of the robot singularity. Many years later, enthralled in a government conspiracy to destabilize the sovereign nations of the Americas in order to create a world government, a lone robot disappears with a dangerous antigen stolen from a government laboratory. Believing that the robot had been hacked by a terrorist group, the Agency was brought in to find it. Unable to locate the robot, the agency must hire Bob Sags, a retired agent turned person finder, to track down and eliminate the wayward robot. During his investigation when things do not add up, Bob is declared an enemy of the state and becomes hunted. It becomes a race against time when Bob realizes that the only way to clear his name is to find the robot before the Agency does.

There is nothing that brings hope than having someone who has gone through the same struggle as you tell you "I know how you feel, I've been there and you're going to make it". The 12 testimonials in "Mira Mira, on the wall" (African accent for Mirror Mirror - a metaphor for self-reflection) are "the voices of hope" from women from Africa and America who have experienced difficult struggles in their teenage years. The study offers a "light at the end of the tunnel" for young girls who have struggled or are struggling with age appropriate issues like low self esteem, relational problems - to the most pervasive ones like drugs & drinking, teen pregnancy, sexual abuse, prostitution, and pornography. Some of the cultural context of these women might be different but their compelling and universal stories will pull at your heart string as you find common ground in their struggles. It will also inspire and give you hope as you share in their victories. You do not have to feel like you're alone in your struggle!
