Alisha, a ten-year-old student, was a defenseless lamb trying to survive in the midst of a throng of wolves throughout her middle school and high school years. She discovered that oftentimes the enemy uses people, places, events, and a number of means to ruthlessly persecute the Lord's lambs in futile attempts to steal human souls. Alisha was no exception as she weathered the attacks of bullying, discrimination, and along with a plethora of other ugly things that shook her confidence in herself. This sincere and heart-written book is her journey through her wilderness where she had to shake off the lies and the fights and wrestles with suicide. While on this path, she tells of how she found peace, joy, and salvation through a dear shepherd and faithful friend, Jesus Christ. Based on true and honest experiences, this book is meant to uplift and encourage those who feel loved and unloved, for those who feel surrounded by isolation, because God uses wounds as healing tools for others in need of healing in their lives. This is her story, and to God be the glory!

She is the quintessential wild child who became a bold, fearless woman, she doesn’t believe in regrets or second chances, and thinks that true love only happens in fairy tales.

The Revolutionary Program That Gets Your Kids To Listen Without Nagging, Reminding, or Yelling Why does it feel sometimes as if our children have special powers that enable them to tune us out completely? You ask your child to do her homework, get ready for school or bedtime. You think she heard you but . . . no response. You’ve tried everything—time-outs, nagging, counting to three—and nothing seems to work. In this invaluable book, Amy McCready, founder of the popular online parenting course Positive Parenting Solutions, presents a nag-and-scream-free program for compassionately yet effectively, correcting your children’s bad behavior. McCready draws on Adlerian psychology and Positive Discipline, which focuses on the central idea that every human being has a basic need to feel connected and empowered—children being no exception to the rule. According to McCready, when this need isn’t met in positive ways, kids resort to negative methods. In this book she provides parents with a virtual toolbox of strategies they can use to give their children the attention and power they crave—and do away with the misbehaving that adults dread.

The book looks at workers in three stages of their careers—early career, midcareer, and retirement—sheds light on generational differences in the workplace, and addresses issues such as job training and work moving overseas. Long-time employees reminisce fondly about the family and engineering culture of Heritage Boeing and many are sad and angry about the new, financially driven ethos brought in by the McDonnell Douglas executives after the merger. Newer, younger employees, with no direct memory of Heritage Boeing and more individualistic attitudes, accommodate themselves more easily to the new Boeing. Employees past and present talk about the exciting challenges of launching new, breakthrough airplanes such as the 777, the thrill they feel when the airplanes they produced take to the skies, and the wrong-headed decisions that plagued the disastrous early development of the 787. The narratives also reveal how workers balance work and home life, navigate changing gender relations, and strive to find meaning in this transformed workplace culture. Emerging from Turbulence takes readers inside these profound workplace changes and shows both the personal and the national impact of today’s realities.
