The Devil Wants YOU Busy, Bound and Burnt Out challenges us to dig deep to see if we are burying our emotional pain or are we working for other reasons. God spoke one time and said "You don't like it when your children assume anything and I don't like it when my children assume either." Building the temple was a good thing that David wanted to do, but the fact remained, God said "NO!" Now if God had no problem saying "NO" and we are made in the image and likeness of God, why can't we say it? God wants us to have life and more abundantly but first we must learn when to say no regardless of our internal drive to keep busy. Yes, the thief comes to steal, kill and destroy our health, relationships and even our lives; but Jesus came to give us life and more abundantly. However, in order for us to receive HIS life, we must first discover why we go beyond the call of duty and do things God or even we intended to do. As you read, The Devil Wants YOU Busy, Bound and Burnt Out, I want you to think of these words: Why do you do the things you do Is a question that I'm asking you Do you do it to please the Master Or is your hand reaching out For the praise of men Time and Again If you are then your motives are wrong So listen very carefully To this little song Who do you love? The creature or Creator Who do you love The Giver or the gift Which do you love? The praise of men or Jesus 3 out of 6 Take your pick In Whom and which do you love Barbara A. Desormo

"An uplifting ready for anyone with a hectic and stressful life, which is, let's face it, all of us." — Neil Bradford, Managing Director, Forrester North America There has been a great deal of talk during the past two decades about the serious problem of stress and burnout. Most of the discussion focuses on the pessimistic side of the story. The underlying assumption is that we are in a fierce struggle, one that we frequently lose. Burnout is presented as almost inevitable, and solutions focusing on recovery are offered. But there is another, more optimistic side to the story. What about the people who endure tough times with courage and grace, or bounce back from crises with renewed energy when logic tells you the situation should have left them depleted and discouraged? For all the talk about burnout, the fact is that the majority of people spend most of their lives coping amazingly well. Being good at not burning out is a skill more than a genetic personality trait. Just like any skill, you have to work at it. You can learn to manage your behaviour and your thinking, but it takes discipline and practice to do it. There are thousands of success stories every day about people who continue to survive and make the best of tough times. So how do they do it? What are the real stories of how individuals survive and thrive during uncertain and difficult times? And what is their advice on preventing burnout? This book answers these questions.

How 'the Troubles' Began

On 14 August 1969, at the age of 14, Michael McCann and his family fled their home. Life changed totally for the McCanns and the entire nationalist community. Thousands of innocent people vacated their homes, driven out by the initial pogrom and then by the ongoing campaign of expulsion by loyalist violence and intimidation. The British army occupation and the continuing violence utterly devastated communities on a monumental scale. Burnt Out: How the Troubles Began, shows how the truth became one of the first casualties of the horrific events of August 1969. It examines the prominent role of state forces and the unionist government in the violence that erupted in Derry and Belfast and assesses how and why the violence began and generated three decades of subsequent brutality. Against a mountain of contrary evidence, many still choose to blame the violence on the commemoration of the Easter Rising in 1966 and the efforts of the nationalist community to defend themselves on two hellish August nights in the late summer of 1969. Burnt Out: How the Troubles Began, is essential reading for anybody interested in the outbreak and causes of 'the Troubles'.

'A compact and compelling novel by an iconic Norwegian writer...[and] thanks to Don Bartlett and Don Shaw's crisp translation, we see it obliquely' - Independent Set in Finland in 1939, this is the story of one man who remains in his home town when everyone else has fled, burning down their houses in their wake, before the invading Russians arrive. Timo remains behind because he can't imagine life anywhere else, doing anything else besides felling the trees near his home. This is a novel about belonging - a tale of powerful and forbidden friendships forged during a war, of unexpected bravery and astonishing survival instincts. The Burnt-Out Town of Miracles is not a novel about war, but about the lives of ordinary people dragged into war, each of whom only wants to find the path back home. Roy Jacobsen uses the dramatic natural landscape of light and darkness, fire-blazing heat and life-robbing cold to spectacular effect.
