Everyone has a story to tell. Fearless Confessions is a guidebook for people who want to take possession of their lives by putting their experiences down on paper—or in a Web site or e-book. Enhanced with illustrative examples from many different writers as well as writing exercises, this guide helps writers navigate a range of issues from craft to ethics to marketing and will be useful to both beginners and more accomplished writers. The rise of interest in memoir recognizes the power of the genre to move and affect not just individual readers but society at large. Sue William Silverman covers traditional writing topics such as metaphor, theme, plot, and voice and also includes chapters on trusting memory and cultivating the courage to tell one's truth in the face of forces—from family members to the media—who would prefer that people with inconvenient pasts and views remain silent. Silverman, an award-winning memoirist, draws upon her own personal and professional experience to provide an essential resource for transforming life into words that matter. Fearless Confessions is an atlas that contains maps to the remarkable places in each person's life that have yet to be explored.

Here's Ray Lindstrom, former disc jockey and TV advertising salesman who quit his job and became a serial entrepreneur. This book was written by Ray himself for anybody who decides they just don't want to go to work for anybody ever again . He tells you his life story and includes many of his entrepreneurial successes. Failures? Well, he never had any of those because he changed the definition of the word. He may not have made money with many ideas, but he still claims 100% success. You'll "get it" when you read the book. He recalls the time he was "stone cold broke" and could not pay his alimony and child support, much less his own personal expenses. Yet, within a year, because he absolutely refused to give up, he was a multi-millionaire. Ray gives hints on how you can start a new business in just a few days with very little, or actually with no money at all. He shows you how to learn about anything¿"All you have to do is ask." This book and his "22 Lindstrom's Laws" are a must for anybody who wants to start their own business; or actually anybody who wants to have fun reading about somebody who has opened over 100 businesses. It's a wild ride! Included is the story of his creation of the "World's Most Important Website" that he planned to sell for a billion dollars. . Ray says simply, "Success is achieved in doing it; completing the project. Everybody has ideas. Following through separates the true entrepreneurs from the pretenders."

IF FAITH COMES BY HEARING, IT IS OBVIOUS THAT FAITH IS ALSO RELEASED BY SPEAKING Every word you speak with your tongue will either generate faith or fear. Faith sees opportunity and possibility in the face of apparent defeat. while fear only sees calamity and impossibility in the face of great opportunity. WORDS ARE DYNAMITE Your tongue is the most powerful weapon at your disposal, with it you can steer your life forward or backward. With your tongue you can make war as well as peace. What you say with your mouth can destroy all that you have used your entire life to build. EVERY WORD YOU SPEAK GOES A LONG WAY IN DETERMINING YOUR ETERNAL DESTINY To improve your lot, you have got to engage your tongue. In the place of lack, you can say, let there be plenty. in the place of sickness, you can say, let there be health. It is your choice.

Rhetorical Healing

Reveals the rhetorical strategies African American writers have used to promote Black women’s recovery and wellness through educational and entertainment genres and the conservative gender politics that are distributed when these efforts are sold for public consumption. Since the Black women’s literary renaissance ended nearly three decades ago, a profitable and expansive market of self-help books, inspirational literature, family-friendly plays, and films marketed to Black women has emerged. Through messages of hope and responsibility, the writers of these texts develop templates that tap into legacies of literacy as activism, preaching techniques, and narrative formulas to teach strategies for overcoming personal traumas or dilemmas and resuming one’s quality of life. Drawing upon Black vernacular culture as well as scholarship in rhetorical theory, literacy studies, Black feminism, literary theory, and cultural studies, Tamika L. Carey deftly traces discourses on healing within the writings and teachings of such figures as Oprah Winfrey, Iyanla Vanzant, T. D. Jakes, and Tyler Perry, revealing the arguments and curricula they rely on to engage Black women and guide them to an idealized conception of wellness. As Carey demonstrates, Black women’s wellness campaigns indicate how African Americans use rhetorical education to solve social problems within their communities and the complex gender politics that are mass-produced when these efforts are commercialized.

The Magic of Memoir is a memoirist’s companion for when the going gets tough. Editors Linda Joy Myers and Brooke Warner have taught and coached hundreds of memoirists to the completion of their memoirs, and they know that the journey is fraught with belittling messages from both the inner critic and naysayers, voices that make it hard to stay on course with the writing and completion of a book. In The Magic of Memoir, 38 writers share their hard-won wisdom, stories, and writing tips. Included are Myers's and Warner's interviews with best-selling and widely renown memoirists Mary Karr, Elizabeth Gilbert, Dr. Azar Nafisi, Dani Shapiro, Margo Jefferson, Raquel Cepeda, Jessica Valenti, Daisy Hernández, Mark Matousek, and Sue William Silverman. This collection has something for anyone who's on the journey or about to embark on it. If you're looking for inspiration, The Magic of Memoir will be a valuable companion.

This is not your typical introduction to the New Testament. Rather, Bellinzoni invites the reader to understand how biblical scholars employ the historical method to understand better who Jesus of Nazareth really was and how and why oral and then written tradition about Jesus developed into the New Testament. Instead of simply summarizing the results of biblical scholarship, Bellinzoni discusses the rules of evidence and the tools of the historical method that scholars use. He then approaches the text of the New Testament by leading the reader step by step through relevant biblical texts in order to illustrate some of the tools of New Testament study and how these tools work: textual criticism, literary criticism and philology, source criticism, form criticism, redaction criticism, etc. This volume doesn't just describe the conclusions of biblical scholarship; it invites the reader to actually do biblical scholarship and thereby draw the best possible conclusions about what happened, when, and why. This volume is not limited to the twenty-seven books of the New Testament, but discusses relevant extra-canonical early Christian literature, which is critical to an understanding of the history of the early church and the development of the New Testament canon.

If the Girl Never Learns

If the Girl Never Learns moves from the personal to the mythic to the apocalyptic, because The Girl would do anything, even go to hell, to save her soul.

Category: Poetry

Page: 80

You are The Girl, and The Girl is a Badass. From the opening lines, it’s clear The Girl at the center of these poems is damaged—which is another way to say she’s a survivor. If the Girl Never Learns moves from the personal to the mythic to the apocalyptic, because The Girl would do anything, even go to hell, to save her soul. So, she resists, takes action to overturn society’s suffocating ideal of Good Girldom. The poems’ sense of breathlessness reflects The Girl’s absolute need to control her own destiny, to outrun her past, while at the same time chasing a future she alone has envisioned and embodied. Because The Girl is, above all else, a badass.

Seize the text," John Craghan tells readers in his introduction to this volume. Though he states the seemingly obvious, it is imperative to read the biblical texts in order to begin to mine their depths; his commentary on the gospels of the weekday Lectionary helps readers do just that. Volumes have been written about the gospels of the Sunday Lectionary, but there are few resources that give the weekday gospels their due. Craghan fills that gap by drawing out the features of each evangelist and providing accessible commentaries and reflections for the gospels during the week. Used as a guide for homilists or as a means for personal meditation on the readings, these observations will help readers to "seize the text", to understand the gospels and their relevance for daily life. John F. Craghan is professor emeritus of religious studies at St. Norbert College in De Pere, Wisconsin. He is North American editor for "Scripture in Church" (Dominican Publications: Dublin, Ireland) and is the author of numerous books, including Exodus in the Collegeville Bible Commentary series and Psalms for al Seasons (Liturgical Press). Craghan has lectured widely in the United States and Latin America. His chief interest is to make the best of biblical scholarship accessible to a wider audience. "
