This inspiring and compelling narrative weaves together stories of sixty successful women from all walks of life and throughout the world. The author spent several years in eight countries interviewing dynamic female role models: businesswomen, CEOs, a Congresswoman, a governor, an ex-Prime Minister, a Pulitzer Prize finalist, a Nobel Peace Prize laureate, a winemaker, artists, doctors, nurses, and many others. The author calls these women "Iron Butterflies" because they meld a will of iron with the gentle, nurturing touch of a butterfly. With disarming candor, these women talk about their struggles, their fallibilities, and their strengths in the journey to the top of their professions. Forging their leadership from an amalgam of masculine and feminine skills, all of these Iron Butterflies have transformed themselves and in doing so they are contributing to a larger social transformation. A key to this personal and social transformation rests in their ability to address vulnerability in themselves and those around them, and transform it into a crucible of healing, growth, and innovation. Knowing how to deal with vulnerability, in ourselves and with others, evokes feminine skills and values and is a key to the societal change so many are seeking. Critiquing the command-and-control style of leadership, derived from the gladiator concept of male invulnerability, the author convincingly demonstrates how traditional feminine skills and values—such as inclusion, empathy, a holistic perspective, relational skills, and emotional strength—can be applied to empower more people than ever before. Like the sixty Iron Butterflies profiled, leaders in the 21st century will paradoxically embrace vulnerability and durability, creating better working and living relationships for us all.

Do you hunger to have a deep, personal relationship with God. Do you long to know more of His character? Do you need to find more of His peace, love, and mercy? Do you want more strength to face the challenges and trials of life and emerge victorious? God is so awesome it is impossible to confine Him to mere words. No two people relate the same way to God, and God is fresh in His dealings with each individual. Yet His character is constant and eternal, the same yesterday, today, and forever. We glean foremost from His Word but also by the insights of others, inspired by the Holy Spirit, to discover His Workings in the lives of mankind. These can be beams of light on our own pathway through life. The first part of this book attempts to capture a fragment of Who God is in poetry and verse. The second part is stories from the life of the author and her ancestors which proclaim God in every day living. God is to be in every part and aspect of life, and this book relates stories of life's joys, sorrows, heartrending trials, triumphs, and special times with God, as well as the mundane and the funny happenings of living. There are also poems of God's hand in nature outside the author's backdoor. To proclaim God, you must also live God. This book presents not only His Word but also how His Word can be applied to real-life situations and God's faithfulness throughout generations.

"One of the more trippy, but very interesting novels among New Wave sci-fi books." — Futurism.com There's always a fresh new face in Greenwich Village, but this one belongs to someone special — a dude who can create living butterflies out of nothing. The Butterfly Kid shows up at exactly the same time as a powerful new drug: Reality Pills, which transform fantasies into physical reality. Chester Anderson and his circle of pot-smoking poets and musicians are eager to investigate this mind-bending narcotic until they realize it's being distributed by lobster-shaped giants from outer space. Now Chester and a gaggle of heads and hipsters are all that stand between the planet's freedom and its enslavement by aliens. Nominated for a 1968 Hugo Award, The Butterfly Kid is a prime example of science fiction's New Wave Movement, a stylistically experimental trend of the 1960s and 1970s. This comically surrealistic tale is the first installment of the Greenwich Village Trilogy, a shared-world scenario written by three different authors, all of whom appear in the books as characters. Dover Publications returns this volume to print for the first time in nearly 40 years, along with its sequels, The Unicorn Girl and The Probability Pad. This edition features a new Foreword by Peter S. Beagle, author of the fantasy classic The Last Unicorn.

Pastor Donatien, ThM., a former SE.MI.PI. (a cadet in the Malagasy Army), a one-time Ankaramalaza middle school teacher, a notable former pastor’s assistant, and a charismatic, successful former senior pastor of Ankaramalaza—the center of one of Madagascar’s four major revival movements which was founded in 1941 by Christ Jesus through His servant, Prophetess Mama Volahavana Germaine, also known as Mama Nenilava, his wife’s grandmother. The prophetess's ministry, during the ministry’s annual celebration, attracts over twenty thousand attendants from all over Madagascar and some from abroad—who are mostly Christians but some are non-Christians. Donatien struggled with homosexuality at such an early age, he could not recall when he began practicing it, which led to a masturbation addiction. As a teen, he was afraid to sleep with girls but was determined to be a husband, so he pushed himself to have girlfriends and even managed to force himself to have sex with a few of them. In 1983, Jesus saved him in a miraculous way and called Donatien to be an ordained pastor, specifically in the Malagasy Lutheran Church, and began to burden his heart with a desire to bring the message of the cross to those who are lost and to help those who are affected by homosexuality. Pastor Donatien never returned to homosexuality but struggled with masturbation off and on until Jesus delivered him from it once and for all, over a decade later. Married in 1987, he and his lovely wife, Claire, have one precious granddaughter and five wonderful grown children—a daughter and four sons, her younger brothers. Through divine experiences, the outpouring of the Spirit of the Living God, and the speaking in tongues marvel, the Lord Jesus guided the anointed and fiery preacher to write this series for the world—to help the living and the future generations as the end of time and its undeniable global challenges and apocalyptic plights are fast approaching us. Pastor Donatien, after spending more than a quarter of a century of preparation, of which over five of those years he spent day and night, seven days a week, 365 days a year doing nothing else but solely writing during which their three noble, amazing, younger sons completely assisted him in whatever the undeserved divine task may require and, also, having his dear wife’s full support, finally, he finished penning down GOD’S COOK BOOK - 1 recipe 4 ALL - YOUR MESS + HIS GRACE - MENU: GOD’S GLORY - VOILÀ: EVEN DELIVERANCE FROM HOMOSEXUALITY - REJOICE! All glories, honors, powers, praises, and thanks be unto the Living, Mighty, Holy, and loving Father Lord God, His one and only Son, and the Holy Spirit alone. This book is the first volume of GOD’S COOK BOOK series, which some people may say is unorthodox since even the series’ title voices random terms. Surprisingly, long ago, some folks asked, “Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth? (John 1:46). But then, around that same time, to reply to a certain individual, the Lord Jesus expressed, “Come and see” (John 1:39). One may be wondering, therefore, about what it is that makes this series so unusual? Which is utterly understandable! Well, to borrow that expression from Christ our Lord and Savior, another person may say, “Come and see!” or “Read and see!”

This is a journal created from recordings transcribed of the journey Tina went through to find healing from a lifetime of abuse. Tina started seeing a therapist immediately after leaving an abusive relationship to gain an understanding to why she kept picking bad men into her life. She knew something was wrong. Originally Tina started recording her journey in hopes it would help someone else coming out of an abusive relationship. She didn’t know early memories of her childhood would surface and she would be faced with an even greater pain and sadness in her life. Her entire world changed from what she knew as a successful business woman and socialite to losing everything and everyone in her life. This is a story of pain, great sadness, the agony of the healing process, and seeking God into the final healing she would receive in the desert.

This servant-writer, at approximately two-and- a- half -years of age, after having heard a very dark-complexioned preacher say that God could wash him white as snow and that he was not afraid to die, moved from the pew to the aisle to see The Book. I desired to know the all of The Book. I immediately asked the God of all things who was outside of The Book, the church, and beyond the sky, looking from eternity, to let me know The Book. I remember from that moment until today that the white as snow scripture is Isaiah 1:18. The Biblical disclosure that sins be as white as snow produced an incited desire for the precise wording of the scriptures with the true meaning. Yet, for all my lifetime, I have believed that the King James Version of 1611, and the new English spelling which appears in the late 1792 published edition, authorized by the United States Congress, needs no human intervention to understand. The Holy Ghost must interpret all scriptural text. St. John 14:26. But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. The Holy Ghost makes overseers of men among men to feed the Church of God, which He purchased with His own blood. God is a Spirit: Spirit has not flesh or blood. God purchased the sins in this world for all time with His own Blood. I Timothy 3:16. And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory. Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood. Acts 20:28

The stories of our lives are a lot like songs—beautiful, eternal melodies composed by our loving God. In Heart Songs, author Kathryn Slattery shares some of these songs through her own life stories, seeking to provide hope, encouragement, and inspiration. In this collection, she explores the joys and challenges of life’s changing seasons—being a young mother; being a member of the “Sandwich Generation” pressed on both sides to meet the needs of her aging mother while also caring for her husband and children; being an empty nester and losing her mother; and being a joyful mother of the bride. Throughout her life’s journey, Slattery discovers fresh, helpful, spiritual insights—“heart songs”—that she shares as a mother, daughter, sister, wife, and friend. With refreshing candor and gentle, self-effacing humor, Heart Songs captures those divine and fleeting moments when heaven’s music breaks through and our hearts sing in perfect harmony with our loving God. Praise for Heart Songs “Kitty Slattery writes not just for the heart but for the soul. She reaches deep into her own life as well as the lives of others to find the stories that lift us up and give us the greatest gift any writer can give—hope.” —Edward Grinnan, editor-in-chief of Guideposts magazine and author of The Promise of Hope “Heart Songs is full of heart-tugging warmth and wisdom, a chance to savor the wonder of a life well-lived.” —Rick Hamlin, executive editor of Guideposts magazine

Drawing on fieldwork conducted in the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu over seven years, Eliza F. Kent offers a compelling examination of the religious and social context in which south India's sacred groves take on meaning for the villagers who maintain them, and shows how they have become objects of fascination and hope for Indian environmentalists.
