What would happen if we actually lived our faith to its full potential? Not defined it, not discussed it, not preached it to others, but actually practiced it with simplicity and consistency each day of our lives? Imagine the impact we could have on those around us if, with God as our source, we would radiate his love, optimism, and grace in all our circumstances and relationships. Today Christians are often seen as negative and judgmental. That is not the character of Jesus! Our Lord has called us to lives of incredible potential filled with challenges worthy of his name—lives of passion, risk, growth, heart, depth, and deeds big and small, all designed to display what God’s kingdom is really about to a watching world. That is what faith is about. It is the faith Dick Capen invites us to reach for—a faith not for superstars but for ordinary people. Capen offers a “faith lift” that will change how you view your life, how you live it, and how it impacts others as you go about being who you were created to be.

One of the major domestic policy issues of our time is whether our nation can provide a more effective educational experience for our children. Economists have stressed that the quality of our educational system eventually defines the ability of our workforce, which in turn affects our competitive position in the world market. This issue has earned increasing attention in light of recent reports that students in many nations perform at higher levels of educational competence than children in America's schools. Inspiring Greatness in Education describes the 21st Century Schools program (21C), a whole-school reform model developed by Edward Zigler over 20 years ago and since then has been in a constant state of testing, implementation, and scaling up. The goal of 21C is to promote optimal child development, which should become manifest in sound educational performance. In practice, 21C provides preschool education as well as good-quality child care before and during the school years, in combination with a number of other family supports. This book will provide an in-depth case study examination of the experience of the Independence School District in Independence, Missouri. The Independence School District embraced School of the 21st Century concepts in 1988, becoming the first urban school district in the nation to do so. This book reveals and documents Independence School District's success as a national model for 21C programming, as well as the experiences, testimonials and opinions of parents, students, teachers, administrators and community officials. By focusing on the impetus and history of the 21C concept, its organic evolution and its applications at the Independence School District, this book is designed to inform, educate, and inspire all who read it and to serve as a model for other school districts that want to achieve similar successes.

This book is a selection of short articles that appeared during a two year period as posts on the blog, goodenoughmothering.com. Author, Dr. Elaine Heffner, has been involved in parent education for many years. In this book she addresses many of the concerns of mothers in particular, and discusses many of the questions they ask her. The issues addressed here are divided into six categories: Mother Worries, Developmental Steps, Conflicts, Feelings, About Parents and Social Pressures. For example, Mother Worries includes such topics as the wish of mothers to be perfect, the guilt they feel about their handling of their children, and the anger that is aroused by childrens provocative behavior. Developmental Steps covers such topics as setting User Friendly Limits for children, their difficulties with transitions, and aggression. Dr. Heffner points up the role of parents in setting expectations that match childrens developmental capabilities at various stages. The focus is on parents own ability to help children over what she calls bumps in development. The section on Conflicts discusses the confrontations that arise between parents and children due to the conflict between the wishes and needs of each. An understanding of these differences is offered as a means of helping to avoid or resolve such conflicts. The section on Feelings points up the feelings that children stir-up in parents which are a significant factor in the confrontations that arise. The ways in which parents can address childrens feelings is also addressed. The sections About Parents and Social Pressures discusses many of the criticisms that have been leveled at parents in recent years, much of it based on developmental research, and points out the many areas in which parents need to feel comfortable using their own judgment. The book offers parents new ways in which to understand their children which can help them answer many of their own questions. Understanding, not prescriptive advice is the underlying theme of the book.

The experiences of eight award-winning schools are distilled into principles for success. This book is based on hundreds of hours of talking with teachers and administrators at the eight schools. The schools are diverse, representing a wide range of locations, sizes, and student characteristics. The schools' stories tell of students who achieve because their teachers are learners. At the heart of each school's success is an exemplary professional development program.

Section 2, "A Boost from Outside," discusses "External Call to Action,""Partnerships with External Programs," and "Fiscal Resources." Section 3 offers "Implications for Site and District Leaders."
