Fireside Tales, a collection of seven stories by award-winning storyteller Dovie Thomason Sickles, features six Iroquois social songs by her husband, Micky Sickles. It is a collection of stories for people of all nations and races. Traditionally, these stories would be told by an older relative, in the cold season, to teach the history, memories, culture, and values of the People to the next generation, while simultaneously reminding the older generation of the proper way to live in harmony with the Earth and all who share it. 1.

People´s Lesson Book on the Gospel of Matthew,:to aid Sabbath-schools, families and individuals in the study of the Bible Edwin Wilbur Rice
With age comes wisdom. We become wise enough to realize that we can´t do some of the things we did so well when we were young. The beloved comedian George Burns said it quite eloquently, ´´I can do anything at 80 that I could do when I was 20. That gives you an idea of what terrible shape I was in at 20.´´ Self-help books offer solid, beneficial techniques, but they really only work for the young. Award-winning comedy writer Gene Perret reveals that more mature devotees must adjust these techniques, tweak them, alter them, and in some cases, ignore them completely. New Tricks for Old Dogs points out some of the flaws in the self-help philosophy. It tempers the advice with common sense. The battle cry of this volume is do it, but don´t overdo it. Sometimes, after we reach a certain age, the best exercise program is a good, brisk nap. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Marlin May.

A lively, colorful figure drawing instruction book that encourages aspiring illustrators to work in ink and watercolor to create quick, confident renderings of diverse, contemporary people. While today´s illustrators work primarily in ink and watercolor, figure drawing instruction still tends to emphasize work in pencil. Commercial illustrator Kagan McLeod offers an approach to figure and portrait drawing more in keeping with today´s preferred tools and techniques, one that focuses on cultivating spontaneity, energy, and confidence by providing exercises for brush work in ink and watercolor. By breaking figure and portrait drawing into the three major aspects of line, tone, and color and recommending time limits for each exercise, McLeod encourages working fast and fearless, rather than worrying about getting your figures just right. Filled with numerous illustrative examples of diverse, modern people, Draw People Every Day reflects practical, applicable techniques to get you drawing the people you see in the world around you with speed and proficiency.

If you are like me then you take your faith seriously. You love Jesus and want to shout it to the world. You are driven by that love, but also by your call to evangelize, to ´´make disciples of all nations.´´ It´s a big task and it can often seem daunting, especially in our society that is very quickly turning further and further away from God.You have friends and family members who have left the Church, turned their backs on God, and want nothing to do with their faith. Yet you love them and in your heart you want what´s best for them, which you and I know means living in relationship with Jesus Christ. So how do you get this message across to someone who doesn´t want to hear it? How do you share your faith with people in the hope that you might lead them to life change?The Church has consistently said that it is by your personal example that you will lead others to Christ. You must be a witness, not just a teacher. The problem is that in our world there are so few Christians who are authentic witnesses to Christ, whose lives are a reflection of who God is. What we need now more than ever is men and women who will be these witnesses. If it doesn´t happen, then things will continue to get worse. People will continue to abandon their faith in God. The Church will grow smaller and smaller.Yet there is still hope. The solution to the problem is you! You can be that witness. You can reach the people in your circle of influence and lead them to life change. In my time as a catechist and parish leader I have experienced the power of life change in relationship with Jesus Christ and I have made it my mission to lead others into that same experience. Over the years I have been very intentional about being an effective leader, and I have learned many lessons. These lessons are what I want to share with you in my book Seven Lessons in Leading People to Life Change. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ricky Jones.
