  • Marriage: Is Not For Wimps

    Marriage: “Is Not For Wimps”
    Rev. Eugene J. Bianchini

    All marriage relationships to one degree or another have strife. Most of the time they are hidden, masked, or just not shared with our mate, the one person who matters the most, what has happened? This book is scripturally based on what I believe God has shown me over our many years of marriage (45,) and our counseling experience. How His word is to be applied to the marriage relationship in the various areas husbands and wives find themselves, including the children, the extended families and our own personal and business lifestyle. My hope is to give those struggling, hope! And some tools that can help them overcome whatever the circumstance (problem) is. The biggest tool of course is God, and how much we will allow Him to touch our heart. Hopefully, we will come to the realization we are to conform to His way and not Him to ours. I do believe the problem is not the marriage that needs to be worked on, but the husband and wife that must work out their individual issues (baggage prior to marriage) with counselors, through learned communication and other materials. Are you willing to change?

  • Color, Friendship and the Absence of Ignorance

    Color, Friendship and the Absence of Ignorance
    Errol Shaw

    The story takes place in the beautiful city of Paris. Stalin, a writer and traveler, uses his stay to explore the city and make use of his visit by connecting with friends while working on his writing project. Stalin uses his 3 month stay in Paris to enjoy the festivities and nightlife with 2 great friends, Alex and Frederick, with whom he spends time with consistently during his stay. Alex, Frederick and Stalin all portray to have very similar qualities in one another. Each has their own professions as teachers, artist and writers. They are all young adults in their late 20’s and early 30’s. However, it is a special bond that they make as friends that help them enjoy and make the most out of life whenever they are in each others company. In spite of their professions, they all relate well to one another. They can all cook well; have great taste in art, nice homes and value friendships. Alex and Frederick show Stalin a great time in Paris. These individuals both have their own places in Paris and they find pleasure in spending time with Stalin who is an African American from the United States. These 3 people constantly go out to drink on a daily basis. All of them use their time to enjoy the lavish restaurants and festivities around the city. They also visit each others Pub in the city and gear themselves for a fun and adventurous trip. Conflict starts to arise in the story as Stalin figures out that the world and life he is living is too good to be true. Stalin finds out that Alex and Frederick may perhaps be gay and probes them for information regarding their lifestyle. Oddly enough, Alex and Frederick were gay but it did not interfere with Stalin enjoying their company. Stalin meets a beautiful woman named Isabelle who happens to be Alex’s good friend. Stalin finds her extremely attractive and feels she could be the person that he would want to marry. Alex aggressively told Stalin that it is okay for you and Isabelle to be friends but nothing should ever go beyond your friendship with her. Regardless of the comments hurled at Stalin, he still pursued her throughout his stay. When Stalin would go out with his two buddies, he would request to always see Isabelle. Alex and Isabelle have a great friendship. As a matter of fact, Alex cherishes the friendship he has with Isabelle to the point where no one else should interfere, including Stalin. Alex used different alternatives and excuses through his plans to not invite Isabelle around Stalin. Alex felt the need to protect the friendship he has with Stalin as well as Isabelle, even if it meant absolute separation between the both of them. There is always something to do for Stalin each day in the city but he ends up spending too much money throughout his stay and realizes that he may not afford to pay the rest of the rent for his Pub. Stalin asks Alex if he can stay with him until it is time for him to go home. Alex grants Stalin’s request. Stalin’s personality engages him into the drinking habits of Alex and Frederick. They go out everyday to drink, socialize and enjoy the city. Even though Stalin spends most of his time with Alex and Frederick, it did not deter him from working on his writing project. Stalin also finds time to break away from his friends to explore parts of the city. He uses parts of his journey to find places that would propel him further to completing his project. Stalin has high expectations that he will become a famous writer someday. The tireless efforts that are placed into his writing will one day make him become a huge success. Each time Stalin visits Paris, he is marveled by the people of this great city. He likes the fact that interracial couples can be together without any signs of hatred or jealousy by someone else. Stalin also sees how men can greet each other with a kiss on the cheek and it is regarded as acceptable to other people. Life in the city of Paris seems too good to be true.

  • Relationship Rescue: A Seven-Step Strategy for Reconnecting with Your Partner

    Relationship Rescue: A Seven-Step Strategy for Reconnecting with Your Partner
    Phillip C. McGraw

    As a follow-up to his bestselling book Life Strategies, Oprah acolyte Phillip C. McGraw, Ph.D., moves from aiding the aimless individual to coaching the disconnected couple. McGraw has distilled his more than two decades of counseling experience into a seven-step strategy he calls "Relationship Rescue.""I'm prepared to kick a hole in the wall of the pain-ridden, unhappy maze you've gotten yourself into, and provide you clear access to action-oriented answers and instructions on what you must do to have what you want," says Dr. Phil. His aim is to expose and eliminate the saboteurs that cause senseless damage to already-fragile marriages, and, like an emotional root canal, to replace them with values he says provide positive results. If you follow Dr. Phil's strategy, he will lead you on a precise journey to uncover your heart and then share it with your partner as part of taking the "risk of intimacy."Dr. Phil leads you to "reconnect with your core" in the first five steps of his seven-step strategy. By no means a quick fix, there are in-depth and rigorous questionnaires, surveys, tests, and profiles that require a "brutally candid" mindset, with such fill-in-the-blanks as "List five things that today would make you fall out of love with your partner." With this internal work accomplished, you'll then move on to reconnecting with your partner during a two-week, half-hour-a-day short course. As a "dyad," you and your loved one take turns giving monologues on topics such as "The most positive thing I took away from my mother and father's relationship was…"Once the "reconnection" has been established, Dr. Phil says the work shifts to a management role, as relationships are always a work in progress. Dr. Phil humorously refers to his own marriage throughout the book, sharing his mishaps and victories in learning to accept and enjoy what he sees as fundamental but complementary differences between men and women. –John Youngs

While entwined in the whirlwinds of event planning, you hear a quieting in your soul, and then poses the “other big question” — Will we last? Often, ladies, it’s so easy to become enthralled by the “idea of marriage”. Finding that special someone to “sweep you off of your feet” becomes the goal and soon distorts the idea that matrimony is not just a gesture, but rather a journey to be embarked upon, and what’s more a “responsibility”.

Bearing ten solid chapters, “Get a Man, Keep a Man” is bound to become the book that single and married women alike won’t leave home (or plan for a date, for that matter) without.

She takes the “First things First” approach and begins Chapter one with all the preliminaries and preparations needed for a successful relationship. This is an extremely encouraging and uplifting work that bears a powerful message as the author so tenaciously strolls her way point by point through the chapters without apology. Asking very daring questions such as “What if your man cheats?”, and “Is he the one?” will definitely prevent you from making the biggest mistake of your life, but most importantly gear you up for the life and marriage you’ve always dreamed about. This book is the answer to all the questions you would like to know regarding keeping him close and you have it first hand from the author’s experience.

    Men are from Earth, Women are from Earth: A Guide to Winning Cooperation from Your Spouse
    Kenneth Wenning

    Men Are from Earth, Women Are from Earth is a self-help book for couples in conflict. Its primary goal is to help couples stop fighting and start living together cooperatively—like true partners in life. Toward this end it shows married people how to overcome their self-defeating, relationship-damaging attitudes and behaviors, how to identify and prevent the main cause of emotional disturbance in marriage, and how to win greater cooperation from their mates. It also teaches couples effective communication and problem-solving methods—and ways of finding greater pleasure in married life. Though primarily a self-help book for married individuals, this book is also designed to support any marital therapy effort or any type of individual therapy for a married person who is seeking to improve his or her marriage. It can be used simply as recommended reading for clients who wish to facilitate self-improvement in marriage as well as relational improvement with the spouse, or it can be used as a structured, step-by-step intervention for distressed couples. Either way, both the psychoeducational content of this book and the emotional and interpersonal problem-solving methods it prescribes are likely to help many unhappily married individuals decisively end the marital "madness" and create more satisfying relationships with their partners.

  • The Disappearing Male

    The Disappearing Male
    Joan Lachkar

    The Disappearing Male by Joan Lachkar, PhD, provides a psychoanalytic/psychodynamic description of eight different kinds of men who “disappear” from relationships without warning or explanation. The term is not restricted to merely a “physical” disappearance but also to ones who emotionally disappear such as the “Robotic Man” described in the chapter of the OCD. Lachkar’s personal, clinical, and professional experience have shown a number of women who have been vastly confused and hurt by the disappearing male. These men appear to be madly in love at the onset and then suddenly vanish without an explanation. Many of these women come into therapy sessions depressed, feeling traumatized, and abused by men who promise them the world, act as though they are the love of their lives, and then suddenly vanish without a call. By acknowledging the diagnostic distinctions of eight different types of disappearing men, this book can help to assist these women in recognizing the red flags and danger signs to prevent them from faltering in their relationship efforts. The Disappearing Male describes the symptoms of eight different diagnostic types of men that women frequently encounter. The symptoms and dynamics that are outlined in this book will vastly enhance an individual’s capacity to become aware of the disappearing male “syndrome.” This book is significant to the awareness and self-esteem of women in relationships, the dating world, and to the therapists that treat them./span

    Behind A Door Of Mystery: A Family Member’s View Of The Mysteries Of MPD/DID
    G.K. Hais

    This book is an astute observation by a lay person, not in the medical fi eld, as well as not in the professional clinical psychology fi eld. The author is a clergyman. He was raised in the atmosphere of a household where serious identifi cation problems existed. The author became acclimated to this household environment, and actually found it to be pleasant. He now remembers it as the wonderful days of childhood back on the family farm. As a result, there has developed, a tolerance of people who have acute I D problems, as well as a savvy, and a God given discernment capability. People who have I D as well as other psychological problems feel drawn to this author. The author makes no claim to holding any applicable credential as a professional, in some of the fi elds of interest presented by this book. He claims no medical knowledge more than common knowledge, nor professional psychology knowledge beyond common knowledge. He has done his research as a writer, and defers to professionals. Nothing is intended to suggest that this book is about the practice of medicine by the author, nor any credentialed psychological service by the author. This book is the author’s autobiography, and is intended to be a documentary of a lay persons observations. I do hope that some professional experts can fi nd these observations helpful to their cause.

    Win-Win Influence: How to Enhance Your Personal and Business Relationships (with NLP)
    Roger R. W. Ellerton

    You can get anything in the world that you want, if you help somebody else get something they want.—Zig ZiglerWhether you are a parent, son/daughter, friend, employee, manager or salesperson, you are constantly influencing others to accept you, your ideas, products or services. Those who masterfully present themselves and their ideas in a win-win manner, get ahead. Those who do not, may reap short-term gains and eventually fail in their objective.Influence is critical in leadership, negotiation, teamwork, sales, resolving family issues and getting others to buy into your ideas. Follow and practice the concepts, tips and processes described in this book and improve your influence results with anyone in a manner that achieves a win-win outcome. The emphasis is on expanding your influence skills and results in everyday situations. For example, through this book, you will learn how to:Enhance your personal and business relationships.Create the career you want.Become a stronger negotiator.Enjoy the family life you desire.Create healthy work environments.Be who you choose to be.Whether you realize it or not, you are constantly influencing other people’s thoughts. You do this through your actions as well as your inactions. One of the best, if not the best, communication models is neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), which forms a fundamental part of this book.How important is the ability to influence others? No matter whether you are a businessperson, teacher, parent, stay-at-home spouse, employee or manager, dealing with people is probably the most important activity you undertake throughout the course of your day. A number of years ago, research sponsored by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching and later confirmed at the Carnegie Institute of Technology discovered that even in engineering, about 15 percent of one’s financial success is due to one’s technical knowledge and about 85 percent is due to interpersonal skills.If you are ready to be the difference that makes the difference in creating better results in your life, grab a copy and let’s get started!

  • Can Your Relationship Be Saved?: How to Know Whether to Stay Or Go

    Can Your Relationship Be Saved?: How to Know Whether to Stay Or Go
    Michael S. Broder

    "The title of this book captures one of the most commonly explored issues that I have dealt with in my office over the past three decades as a practicing clinical psychologist." Thus begins Dr. Broder's wise and compassionate guide to assessing a faltering love relationship, and answering the fundamental question asked by the book's title. Broder addresses individuals and couples in marriages, or any other type of love relationship or romance — long- or short-term, and of any sexual orientation. His 40-item "Can Your Relationship Be Saved?" Inventory asks the rights questions. But readers are not left there. The chapters that follow gently guide them in exploration of what is likely to happen if…? What if I go? What if I stay? Readers will find direction in answering those questions for themselves, and the information and strategies to help them act on their decisions. Can Your Relationship Be Saved? speaks–in a warm, unabashedly upbeat and optimistic manner–directly to the painful ambivalence that results when you are unable to determine how you really feel. Broder's guidance is packed with practical road maps and direction finders, avoiding glibness, cliches, pat answers or "someone else's value judgments that will rarely hold up for you in the end."

  • Edgar Cayce on Soul Mates: Unlocking the Dynamics of Soul Attraction

    Edgar Cayce on Soul Mates: Unlocking the Dynamics of Soul Attraction
    Kevin J. Todeschi

    Is there really such a thing as soul mates? According to Edgar Cayce, yes. But his definition of "soul mates," "twin souls," and "perfect partners" may differ from what you're expecting. For decades, Cayce provided thousands of individuals with insights into the nature of their personal relationships, the dynamics of soul attraction, and the universal laws at work that draw individuals together. What is unique about Todeschi's book is that it explores the development of relationships over time, played out within the framework of reincarnation. In addition to discussing soul mate relationships, their connection to the cyclic pattern of reincarnation, and the nature of loneliness, this book looks at the fundamentals of soul attraction and provides contemporary examples of the same principles discussed by Cayce.

    Speak Peace in a World of Conflict: What You Say Next Will Change Your World
    Marshall B. Rosenberg

    Words have the power to create profound healing—or incredible suffering—and yet even with the best intentions it can be difficult to build harmony and trust through speech. This pioneering text presents a four-part model for immediately connecting words with peace and well-being in relationships. Applying the principles of Nonviolent Communication to conversation, the book seeks to answer the two central questions of How can we express what's alive in us? and How can we make life more wonderful? Chapters discuss using natural empathy to ease stressful situations and beat fear, thus avoiding dehumanizing communication patterns, and instead seeing through the eyes of others to foster understanding. Examples of applications in education, correctional facilities, parenting, and the business world are given. This instructive guide teaches users of all types that it is possible to meet their needs and the needs of others in a compassionate manner, beginning with the very first words they use.

  • To Hell and Back: A Trilogy of Spirits ( Part One )

    To Hell and Back: A Trilogy of Spirits ( Part One )
    Shawn J. Lyons

    This is a story about a wager between an angel and a demon over the direction a man ́s life will take. All of the stories in this book are based on true events that occurred in the life of the author or in Biblical history. There have been many testimonials written that describe the lifestyles that people have been delivered from but very few address the struggles that ordinary Christians face when they begin their walk with God. Most people will struggle with the flesh and with wrong attitudes and will not know how to deal with the demons that will come to tempt, discourage, and oppress them. I want people who read this book to be able to identify with some of the struggles faced by the characters and be encouraged that they are not alone in their own personal struggles. Salvation is instant but holiness is a lifelong journey that requires constant maintenance checks. I want to assure them that God loves them despite their shortcomings and still wants to use them to build His kingdom. The purpose of this book is to entertain, educate, and equip. I put the story into a fiction format to attract the average reader who is interested in God, angels, and demons but doesn ́t necessarily attend church services. I tried to fill the srories with information about God and the benefits of being a Christian. I want to make them aware of the demonic forces arrayed against them and teach them about the power that is available to them to combat these forces of darkness. There are many scripture references and Biblical reenactments that should spark curiosity and provoke the reader to further bible study on their own. For the serious Bible student there is a wealth of information from the Book of Enoch and the Testament of Solomon. Although this is a work of fiction there was a lot of reseach done and the information found in this book can be used to help you make the right decisions in life, to protect yourself from demonic entities, and to have a more satisfying relationship with God and enjoy the benefits of being in covenant with Him.
