7 Days to Lasting Intimacy with Your Spouse
Author: Ed Young,Lisa Young
View: 9190The predominant message in our culture is that it's okay to have sex whenever, wherever, and however we want. Sex has become just sex. But while society has taken sex too far, the church hasn't taken it far enough. God wants couples to make love in marriage-with passion, with purpose, and with pleasure. Marriages aren't experiencing all the benefits that come from a healthy sex life. Couples are facing a barrage of influences that keep them from connecting with each other regularly-the kids, the career, the house, the errands, etc. SEXPERIMENT shows people that sex in marriage is more than just sex, and it's more than a chore. The Youngs believe it's time to get back to understanding the context of sex in marriage and that it's time for couples to break the barriers keeping them from a healthy sexual relationship. Couples ought to experience the benefits of having sex regularly, intentionally, and creatively. SEXPERIMENT will allow couples to discover that the intersection of God and sex can lead to a life punctuated by exclamation marks!

The Prophet, King Ahab and the Rebirth of Monotheism in the Book of Kings
Author: Hillel I. Millgram
View: 945An analysis of the intertwining tales of Elijah and Ahab—mercurial prophet and Machiavellian king—this book is an accessible treatment of one of the most dramatic and well-known episodes in the Bible. In contrast to the popular image of Elijah as a courageous wonder-worker who calls down fire from heaven and ascends to heaven in a fiery chariot, this book contends that the prophet was a deeply conflicted man, torn between a burning idealism and a deep disillusionment over his failure to achieve his ideals. Despite his profound sense of failure, Elijah’s struggle against the paganizing regime of King Ahab and his queen, Jezebel, managed to save monotheism from eclipse, and in so doing alter the course of human history. This work further proposes that the tale presented by the Bible is more than an account of an ancient battle between two historic figures: it is a paradigm of the struggle between the ideals of human dignity and justice, and the alternative of expediency in the pursuit of power, a conflict that pervades human life to this very day.
Victoria, Albert and the Death That Changed the Monarchy
Author: Helen Rappaport
Publisher: Random House
Category: Biography & Autobiography
View: 2266When Queen Victoria's husband, Prince Albert, died in December 1861 the nation was paralysed with grief. His death was a catastrophe for Victoria, who not only adored her husband but had, through twenty-one years of marriage, utterly relied on him: as companion, father of their children, friend, confidant, and unofficial private secretary. Without Albert to guide and support her, the Queen retreated into a state of pathological grief which nobody could penetrate and few understood. Drawing widely on contemporary letters, diaries and memoirs, Rappaport brings new light to bear on the causes of Albert's death and tracks Victoria's mission to commemorate her husband in perpetuity. Richly compelling, this is the story of a magnificent obsession that even death could not sever.

View: 7034Anastasia is about to be married, which should be the most exciting day of any young girl's life. Pretty, impulsive and wise beyond her years it seems that the young Princess will make an ideal bride for one lucky man. There is only one flaw in the wedding plans - she is not in love with her bridegroom. Commanded to marry by Queen Victoria, Anastasia is horror struck at the thought of an arranged marriage. Having dreamt of true love since childhood, she despairs that a marriage based on political allegiance can ever be a happy one. Especially when her bridegroom, the handsome King of Maurona, is reputed to have a preference for anything French, including the seductive wife of Maurona's French ambassador. Determined to do her duty, Anastasia prepares to meet her future husband just days before their wedding. The roar of the assembled crowd tells her that she has won the love and approval of the people, but will she ever have the love of their King? As passions and political intrigue simmer amidst the idyllic palaces and sun-kissed olive groves of Maurona, Anastasia decides that this is a challenge she must rise to. As well as ensuring British protection for the tiny Principality from the greedy hands of neighbouring France, she determines to make her marriage a success. But can an innocent English rose compete with the dark smoldering beauty of the sensual Comtesse le Granmont? Two women, one man and only one winner - but as danger grows ever closer will the King realise who his real friends are, and which woman should be at his side, in time to save his country?

View: 6794Scheiß auf positives Denken sagt Mark Manson. Die ungeschönte Perspektive ist ihm lieber. Wenn etwas scheiße ist, dann ist es das eben. Und wenn man etwas nicht kann, dann sollte man dazu stehen. Nicht jeder kann in allem außergewöhnlich sein und das ist gut so. Wenn man seine Grenzen akzeptiert, findet man die Stärke, die man braucht. Denn es gibt so viele Dinge, auf die man im Gegenzug scheißen kann. Man muss nur herausfinden, welche das sind und wie man sie sich richtig am Arsch vorbeigehen lässt. So kann man sich dann auf die eigenen Stärken und die wichtigen Dinge besinnen und hat mehr Zeit, sein Potential gänzlich auszuschöpfen. Die subtile Kunst des darauf Scheißens verbindet unterhaltsame Geschichten und schonungslosen Humor mit hilfreichen Tipps für ein entspannteres und besseres Leben. Damit man seine Energie für sinnvolleres verwendet als für Dinge, die einem egal sein können.

View: 7178Ephesians 5:33 reads, "However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband." And research done by Shaunti Feldhahn in 2006 demonstrates that "respect" is one of the most critical needs a man has in a relationship. Have you ever wondered, "How can I possibly respect my husband?" Or, "Isn't there MORE to being married?" There is more. We can help you become stronger, figure out the respect thing (it's not what you think) and become more connected to God and your husband. More than half of marriages end in divorce in the United States, and many women that stay married are unhappy. The Respect Dare can change all that. It is forty days of an experience that will take away the mystery that is keeping you from speaking the language of respect with your husband. It provides real life examples from women who have developed closer relationships with God and their husbands. In it, you will learn: - How to build confidence; - Methods to positively handle conflicts; - Keys to better communication; - How to develop a more intimate connection with your spouse; - Ways to deepen your relationship with God; - And much more! Learn the language of respect and truly connect to the man you married with The Respect Dare. "Doing the dares" with a small group of women has excellent benefits, providing accountability, encouragement, and discussion. What Christian Leaders Have to Say about "The Respect Dare:" Dr. Kevin Leman, best-selling author of "Have a New Husband by Friday:" "Nina's insightful steps in The Respect Dare help you along the path to a better marriage. Walk along this successful path traveled by many women to find growth and fulfillment. Take the first step, I dare you." Shaunti Feldhahn, best-selling author of "For Women Only: What you Need to Know about The Inner Lives of Men:" "Believe it or not, most men need respect so much that, if they had to, they would give up love to get it - and respect empowers them to be the caring man you most need. One of the most important things you can ever do for your man - and thus for yourself -- is to read this book. From the first page you are an active participant as you go through daily scripture, self-reflection, prayer journaling and lots of 'now I get it!' examples. Think Nike slogan "Just Do It:" each day you find yourself DOING respect - not just thinking, praying, talking or reading about it - but DOING it. You will find your habits seamlessly changing into new ways of relating that will feel as wonderful and life-changing to you as to him." Pastor Mark Gungor, best-selling author of, "Laugh Your Way to a Better Marriage:" "Women need to affirm, encourage and respect their husbands with their actions and words-and sometimes it is with the lack of words that is most powerful, if you catch my drift! Respect can be shown both by what you say and often times by what you don't say. Many times when I speak of this to women, they launch into 20 questions: What does respect mean? What does it look like? How do I show it? What if he doesn't deserve it? The list goes on and on. While there is no one-size-fits-all answer, or no recipe or steps to follow, understand that the whole concept of respect has more to do with you than it has to do with him. I encourage all women to accept this respect challenge and find out if I'm right. What do you have to lose except a whole lot of selfishness, bitterness and unrealistic expectations? On the other hand, you have a great opportunity to gain greater understanding, self-confidence, joy and a better relationship with God and your husband. Go ahead, I dare you. You won't regret it."
