I asked for and gained initial physical custody when my marriage ended in late 1981. The kids (Kim-age 3 , Lance-nearly age 5) and I invented a series of creative growth games which helped us focus on our values, philosophies, and have fun all the while overcoming challenges in a complex world of tremendous change. Every day started and ended with joy and thanksgiving. I wouldnt trade it for anything! For over 20 years, I have shared the fun, laughs, possible benefits & results of our lessons and techniques with audiences. I have shared the essence of my parenting lessons, which I adapted from my professional managerial and technical experiences, as an adjunct faculty member of the University of Phoenix (Sacramento Valley Campus System) where I was twice awarded the distinction as Outstanding Faculty in Business Administration. I have conducted management training sessions for GE, where I was recognized as earning the highest instructor evaluation in a 3-year period. I recently conducted training for physician chiefs at a large hospital. I shared a game invented by daughter Kim at age 6 (the Wishing Well Game) with over 100 dads and their kids at the Second Annual Fathers Spring Festival at Las Lomitas School, Atherton, California. I have contributed in several industries (mostly high technology) from very large Fortune 500sGE (3 Divisions), FMC (2 Divisions), IBM, Motorola, Applied Materials, and Tandem Computers (which is now part of HP). I have earned degrees: BS Electrical Engineering, and Masters of Business Administration. [email protected]

Who are American Catholics and what do they believe and practice? How has American Catholicism influenced and been influenced by American culture and society? This book examines the history of American Catholics from the colonial era to the present, with an emphasis on changes and challenges in the contemporary church. Chester Gillis chronicles America Catholics: where they have come from, how they have integrated into American society, and how the church has influenced their lives. He highlights key events and people, examines data on Catholics and their relationship to the church, and considers the church’s positions and actions on politics, education, and gender and sexuality in the context of its history and doctrines. This second edition of Roman Catholicism in America pays particular attention to the tumultuous past twenty years and points toward the future of the religion in the United States. It examines the unprecedented crisis of sexual abuse by priests—the legal, moral, financial, and institutional repercussions of which continue to this day—and the bishops’ role in it. Gillis also discusses the election of Pope Francis and the controversial role Catholic leadership has played in American politics.

A Pathway Through Parks

"Bodie, the very sound of that name conjures up images of "The Bad Man From Bodie", a rough and tumble life, and the harsh climate of a gold mine boomtown of the early West. But to a young park ranger and his wife, fresh out of college, and with a child on the way, it was an intimidating beginning to a 32-year career with California Department of Parks and Recreation. A PATHWAY THROUGH PARKS follows the career of Ranger Carl S. Chavez and his family as they travel the length and breadth of California from the ghost town of Bodie State Historic Park to the mountains and beaches of Southern California. Each new assignment brings new adventures and challenges as Ranger Chavez promotes up the career ladder to positions on the Central Coast of California, the Sierra Nevada and finally to the redwoods of Northern California at Humboldt Redwoods State Park. Career decisions must be made which result in advancement, "out of the field", and into the Management ranks of Regional and Division Headquarters. Yet even these changes do not alter the opportunity for stories and tales of humor and tragedy, joy and sorrow, adventure and routine, and the success and failure that many readers will recognize in their own lives. Anyone who has retired from the workforce, regardless of occupation, will have memories like those found in A PATHWAY THROUGH PARKS. The author's experiences will give all those who love the Great Outdoors and enjoy our parks and forests a rare, inside glimpse, not only of the inner workings of park operations, but also, of family life living in parks.

Living Inside and Outside the American Dream

2012 Americo Paredes Book Award Winner for Non-Fiction presented by the Center for Mexican American Studies at South Texas College Selected as a 2012 Outstanding Title by AAUP University Press Books for Public and Secondary School Libraries This is Olivia’s story. Born in Los Angeles, she is taken to Mexico to live with her extended family until the age of three. Olivia then returns to L.A. to live with her mother, Carmen, the live-in maid to a wealthy family. Mother and daughter sleep in the maid’s room, just off the kitchen. Olivia is raised alongside the other children of the family. She goes to school with them, eats meals with them, and is taken shopping for clothes with them. She is like a member of the family. Except she is not. Based on over twenty years of research, noted scholar Mary Romero brings Olivia’s remarkable story to life. We watch as she grows up among the children of privilege, struggles through adolescence, declares her independence and eventually goes off to college and becomes a successful professional. Much of this extraordinary story is told in Olivia’s voice and we hear of both her triumphs and setbacks. We come to understand the painful realization of wanting to claim a Mexican heritage that is in many ways not her own and of her constant struggle to come to terms with the great contradictions in her life. In The Maid’s Daughter, Mary Romero explores this complex story about belonging, identity, and resistance, illustrating Olivia’s challenge to establish her sense of identity, and the patterns of inclusion and exclusion in her life. Romero points to the hidden costs of paid domestic labor that are transferred to the families of private household workers and nannies, and shows how everyday routines are important in maintaining and assuring that various forms of privilege are passed on from one generation to another. Through Olivia’s story, Romero shows how mythologies of meritocracy, the land of opportunity, and the American dream remain firmly in place while simultaneously erasing injustices and the struggles of the working poor. A happy ending for the maid's daughter: Hector Tobar's profile of Olivia for the LA Times

The barrage of A. A. meetings had penetrated the denial front. I heard my story a dozens of times .The real tough guys met life on life’s terms; without booze or drugs to numb the insults of life. I had accepted that life would be better if I put the plug in the jug and surrendered to win. I was not fi ghting the good fi ght when I was self-prescribing a mixed bag of feel-good drugs. I would soon learn the meaning of serenity, one day at a time as a better way to cope. We were told to “give up one thing and you can have everything.” The rum was out of the fruitcake. I was determined to take the program seriously. The substances were my crutch to navigate the difficult times and now I needed spirituality to replace the drugs. The progress was little and slow.

Most Bible commentaries take us on a one-way trip from the twentieth century to the first century. But they leave us there, assuming that we can somehow make the return journey on our own. In other words, they focus on the original meaning of the passage but don't discuss its contemporary application. The information they offer is valuable -- but the job is only half done! The NIV Application Commentary Series helps us with both halves of the interpretive task. This new and unique series shows readers how to bring an ancient message into modern context. It explains not only what the Bible means but also how it can speak powerfully today.

Devreaux's Appointment

Page: 312

is the fictionalized account of an impressionable, star-crossed lad coming of age in tiny Bristow, Arkansas, graduating from The University of Arkansas, attaining a degree from Candler School of Theology, and aspiring for a ministerial “appointment” in Arkansas from the Methodist bishop. Bristow is where he learned to ‘figure,’ process unpleasantries, and … was abducted. The University of Arkansas is where he excelled academically, married his campus sweetheart, and … survived the initial attempt upon his life by an unknown assassin. Georgia is where he served a student ministerial “appointment” in rural Greene County, resisted the wiles of a skirt-tugging parishioner, survived a near fatal automobile wreck precipitated by an ambitious small town constable, navigated through numerous personality conflicts of parishioners, and narrowly avoided a cleverly calculated scheme by the anonymous assassin. Arkansas is the setting for Deveaux’s initial “appointments” while awaiting the elusive “promotion.” Interesting personalities abound: an enigmatic district superintendent, the church member in charge of porno films shown at the fire department, the “unpredictable” church organist, and the unknown assassin. The salient significance of the book’s title is discovered in the LAST line of the text.
