The Sisterhood explores God's vision for women: what they should believe about God, themselves, and their ability to make the world a better place. Bobbie shows readers how to embrace and implement that vision in every aspect of their lives, helping them to discover their gifts and talents, and includes personal stories from women around the world.

Filled with compassion, humor, and tenacity in the face of almost insurmountable odds, here is a rich, inspiring tale of friendship and family, sisterhood and mother love . . . and of finding grace where you least expect it. Canaan Creek, South Carolina, in the 1950s is a tiny town where the close-knit African-American community is united by long-term friendships and church ties. Bonnie Wilder has lived here, on Blackberry Corner, all her life, and would be content but for her deep desire to have a child. She and her husband Naz cannot conceive, and he refuses to adopt. Even the support of her outrageous best friend Thora—to whom Bonnie tells everything—can’ t help fill the emptiness inside her. Then Naz finds a blanketed infant on the banks of Canaan Creek, and suddenly Bonnie’s life is transformed. She has found her calling. Together with Thora and the rest of the hilarious, tough, and all-too-human women from her church group, Bonnie creates an underground railroad for unwanted babies. But one of these precious gifts will come back to haunt her: a deception begun in good faith comes full circle, ultimately forcing Bonnie to find the courage to confront a difficult truth at the center of her own life.

The Sisterhood of Diabetes engages the reader with 38 true-life stories of women with diabetes—the challenges they faced and the adventures they took. These accomplished women, of all ages and from around the world, are athletes, scholars, and champions in many ways, who will motivate and inspire others, whether diabetic or not, in redefining abilities and venturing beyond self-imposed limits. The message here is to live your dreams with diabetes, or any other challenges, with a positive attitude and inspired determination. While many books offer the “do’s and don’ts” of diabetes care, this book bypasses the humdrum and the confusing fuselage of medical terminology and treatment to bring the reader face to face with the real struggles of diabetes, and how to live a rich life in the midst of our challenges. Judith Jones-Ambrosini has lived under the influence of Type 1 diabetes for over fifty years. She knows the importance of exercise, sports and leading an active life as a major component of excellent diabetes care. There are currently over 26 million men, women and children with diabetes in the USA, and 286 million cases worldwide. This book sheds bright light on what can sometimes be a devastating prognosis, by telling true and encouraging stories of successful individuals. Living with diabetes is a challenge, but as Judith so beautifully captures here it doesn’t have to keep you from achieving your dreams. Each of these uplifting stories shares a common “golden thread” – the importance of maintaining a positive attitude and the will to dream big. Whether they have diabetes or not, readers of this inspirational book will be encouraged to find their own golden thread. – Chris Dudley, National Basketball Association player for 16 years; founder: Chris Dudley Foundation for youth with diabetes; Type 1 diabetes since 1981 I have known of Judith’s commitment to movement and sport for years, and how it has helped her manage her diabetes. Her clear, compelling voice brings us stories of women who discovered that moving is one of our greatest salvations, and tools, to live proudly, strongly and joyfully with diabetes. – Riva Greenberg, author, Diabetes Do’s & How-To’s and 50 Diabetes Myths...50 Diabetes Truths...; and columnist, The

Lena finds solace in her art, teaching in Rhode Island, but still thinks of Kostos and the road she didn’t take. Bridget lives with her longtime boyfriend, Eric, in San Francisco, and though a part of her wants to settle down, a bigger part can’t seem to shed her old restlessness. Then Tibby reaches out to bridge the distance, sending the others plane tickets for a reunion that they all breathlessly await. And indeed, it will change their lives forever—but in ways that none of them could ever have expected. Look for special features inside. Join the Circle for author chats and more.

Carmen, Tibby, Lena and Bridget have been best friends all their lives. They live in the same small American town and usually spend every moment of their long summer holidays together. The year they turn 16 is the first time they have separate plans for the summer but the girls are determined to keep in touch. Tibby buys a pair of jeans in a second-hand shop and the girls discover that the trousers magically fit each of them perfectly, despite their different figures and heights. They hit upon a wonderful plan of sharing the jeans throughout the vacation - sending them on to the next friend when they feel the time is right. From Baja California to Greece, from film-making to football, the girls - and the travelling pants - encounter first love, family upset and fatal illness. Secure in the knowledge that their friendship is constant - and the symbol of it need never be more than a parcel-delivery away - the girls survive their summer and return home with a wealth of new experiences to share. A perfect teen-chick summer read; a quirky, humorous and memorable cut above the rest.

This readable and informative survey, including both new research and synthesis, provides the first close comparison of race, class and internationalism in the British and American women's movements during this period. Sisterhood Questioned assesses the nature and impact of divisions in the twentieth century American and British women's movements. In this lucidly written study, Christine Bolt sheds new light on these differences, which flourished in an era of political reaction, economic insecurity, polarizing nationalism and resurgent anti-feminism. The author reveals how the conflicts were seized upon and publicised by contemporaries, and how the activists themselves were forced to confront the increasingly complex tensions. Drawing on a wide range of sources, the author demonstrates that women in the twentieth century continued to co-operate despite these divisions, and that feminist movements remained active right up to and beyond the reformist 1960s. It is invaluable reading for all those with an interest in American history, British history or women's studies.

The Glory to Glory Sisterhood breaks down barriers between women, building up their faith in God and their bonds with each other. The Glory to Glory Sisterhood invites Christian women to join God’s “sisterhood sorority” by exploring sensitive-to-women issues including: • Rejection. • Coveting. • Receiving love. • Disappointment. • Insecurity. • Accepting themselves as beautiful. Robin Kirby-Gatto draws on her own experiences of rejection, worthlessness, and rebellion to create bonds of trust and understanding among women of all ages, “to bring women into unity where we see each other through the eyes of Christ.” She begins with her own story, showing the depths God went to redeem and call her to fulfill her destiny and purpose. The Glory to Glory Sisterhood addresses worldly standards that have come against women in general that have built strongholds of competition through jealousy, pride, gossip, and judgment—giving women false expectations about how to treat each other—and empowers them to move forward using God’s standard to propel them into godly, sisterly relationships. Probing questions at the conclusion of each meaningful chapter open your heart to Jesus, the Lover of your soul, and allow you to take a deeper look at your Savior—and yourself.
