Part engaging conversation, part comprehensive fieldwork, Growing a Life demonstrates just how influential educational and community gardening programs can be for young teens. Follow author Ill?ne Pevec as she travels from rural Colorado to inner city New York, agrarian New Mexico to Oakland, California, in order to study youth gardening and the benefits it contributes to at-risk teen lives. Extensive research, supplemented by beautifully candid interviews with students, illustrate the life altering physical and mental benefits that mentored gardening programs can provide. Giving readers the opportunity to examine the largely unexplored topic of urban gardening, the programs discussed present models for future educational and community based gardens. Each destination brings with it an abundance of programs geared toward educating teens by giving them the tools they will need in order to have fruitful futures. With an emphasis on positive psychology, Growing a Life delves into the minds of underprivileged teens and what gardening means to them.

In this new edition of his popular book, Craig Dykstra explores the contributions of the traditions, education, worship practices, and disciplines of the Reformed Christian community in helping people grow in faith. In doing so, he makes the case that the Christian church, in its own traditions, has a wealth of wisdom about satisfying spiritual hunger and the desire to know God deeply--wisdom that offers coherent, thoughtful guidance in such diverse settings as congregational life, families, youth groups, and higher education.

To be human is to be in relationships. We can't survive without them but at the same time it's in our relationships that we so easily come unravelled. There are certain relationships that seem to just do us in. Either we feel like we lose ourselves or we feel burnt out from unsuccessful efforts to make things right for another. In our relationships we can experience the very best of ourselves and the very worst. Most psychological approaches to building resilience focus on the individual -- the individual mind, emotions and experiences. The message of Growing Yourself Up, however, is that you can't separate understanding the individual from understanding relationships; they go hand in hand. All of life's relationships are integral to increasing self-awareness and growing maturity -- and it's not necessarily the comfortable relationships that promote personal growth. Drawing from Bowen family systems theory, this book takes you on a journey through each stage of life to see the predictable patterns of relationships and to show how to use this knowledge to make purposeful adjustments in yourself. The result, though certainly not a quick fix, is a sturdier self, sturdier relationships and a refreshing new way of viewing life's challenges and opportunities.

Is your relationship with God somewhat superficial? Mine sure was. For so long I viewed the Father as some ultra holy, silent entity, that was only there when I summoned Him. And when summoned He wouldn't talk, He'd only listen. I had the language pretty much down pat. "Christianese" is what they call it, and boy was I good at it! When needed, I was a master at walkin' the walk and talkin' the talk. A superficial Christian skilled in keeping up appearances. But one day God got my attention in a BIG way! I was knocked to my knees and forced to come before Him naked for the very first time. And for the first time He made me understand that he wanted me to be as open and as honest as I could possible be when coming before Him. After all, it's not like He's not been walking with me all day anyway. He revealed to me that He no longer wanted me to be fake and superficial in my interactions with Him, no matter what I had done, no matter how I was feeling. It is as the title says...I am "Still Growing" and God is well aware of that reality.

Help for Life's Struggles from Bible Heroes Who've Been There. Throughout Scripture, we see evidence that God's people faced the same challenges we do today. From rejection to depression, facing overwhelming responsibilities to wrestling with doubts, these heroes of the faith shared the pain, frustration, and hopes that are common to modern day believers. By observing how biblical characters like Moses, Joshua, Daniel, Peter, and Paul, brought their fears and frustrations to God, we can learn to do the same. Filled with encouragement and hope, this study will convince you that God's character and presence can give you strength to face any difficulty. 10 studies for individuals or groups.

With generosity of spirit, ebullience, and sly humor, Mary Tyler Moore presents the intensely private, often funny, and sometimes startling story of her life with diabetes. Growing Up Again is a delightfully candid read for her legion of fans, the more than 20 million Americans with diabetes, and everyone struggling to cope with life's unexpected challenges. Mary Tyler Moore, actress and activist, relates the highs and lows of living with type 1 diabetes for the past forty years. With inspired, well-crafted prose, she drills down to the most heartfelt, yet universal truths about life—including the lives of those with diabetes. She unflinchingly chronicles her struggle with diabetes, as well as her successful rehabilitation from alcohol dependence, all while deriving gratification from her roles as an actress, mother, businesswoman, campaigner, and fund-raiser. Her revealing tales of both her successes and failures in coping with diabetes offer others with the disease guidance and inspiration through example. In the book, stories include her rebounding from a low-blood-sugar episode during a Mary Tyler Moore Show script reading after the director poured orange juice down her throat, to misadventures caused by diabetes-related vision impairment at a dimly lit party for John Travolta. She also taps into the vast diabetes research network to talk to diabetic children and adults and with leading experts who are discovering new ways to control diabetes and its complications, and pursuing new ways to cure this disease. "Her TV alter ego, Mary Richards, may have been perfect, but it’s Moore’s imperfections that make her the ideal author of this surprisingly frank memoir about living with diabetes." - Publishers Weekly

My Life Growing Up White During Apartheid In South Africa

This book is a short collection of memories about being white and living in South Africa during Apartheid. I wrote this book for the reader to easily understand what it was like to live in this environment. It is not a history lesson, but some personal experiences that I went through living in South Africa at the time. Living through apartheid I never even realized that it even existed, because we were brought up to believe that it was normal. Life was paradise for me and hell for others! Many of us did not know or care, and even if we did try to change the system, it would have resulted in prison or death. We believed that changing apartheid would have caused the country to fall into the hands of the communists, and many white people were fearful that black rule would have destroyed South Africa and their lives. The other side of the coin is that I cant comprehend what the lives of most blacks was like, which was excruciatingly difficult, something that I didnt personally experience. Our history books never taught us anything good about blacks. I cant remember ever learning anything positive that blacks did. What I did learn was that they were lazy, uneducated, dangerous, and drank a lot. Stay away from them, and if they bother you call the police. There were serious injustices in South Africa, and many black people suffered under the Apartheid Regime.
