Jacqueline Woodson is the 2018-2019 National Ambassador for Young People's Literature National Book Award winner Jacqueline Woodson and two-time Pura Belpré Illustrator Award winner Rafael López have teamed up to create a poignant, yet heartening book about finding courage to connect, even when you feel scared and alone. There will be times when you walk into a room and no one there is quite like you. There are many reasons to feel different. Maybe it's how you look or talk, or where you're from; maybe it's what you eat, or something just as random. It's not easy to take those first steps into a place where nobody really knows you yet, but somehow you do it. Jacqueline Woodson's lyrical text and Rafael López's dazzling art reminds us that we all feel like outsiders sometimes-and how brave it is that we go forth anyway. And that sometimes, when we reach out and begin to share our stories, others will be happy to meet us halfway. (This book is also available in Spanish, as El Día En Que Descubres Quién Eres!)

Growing Pains is a glance into the trials, hardships, And the lessons of growing up. It is a journey of loss, Of revelation, and of hope. It is at sometimes naïve, And at other times sober and pivotal. It contains as many Questions about the changes we go through to reach Adulthood; as it does about life itself. It questions life with the curiosity of a child and causes us reflect upon the kernel of our youth. It takes us through a time in our lives when the curtains are lifted from our eyes and we see all; we see the world, we see our lives, and we see the lessons that we must learn. It is a work that examines the very root of what it is to be young. And it delves into our pain and struggle as we walk a path uncertain. As we begin to make choices that will affect the rest of our lives.
Today’s public schools represent a demographic of students that are more diverse than ever before. In turn, culturally responsive and affirming teaching practices should mirror the academic, social, and cultural needs of an ever-increasing population of diverse students. Through multicultural education students can discover the ways they are shaped by their own culture, as well as learn more about others. Multicultural education practices provide mutually beneficial dialogue between cultures, and the pedagogical practices increase learning outcomes for not just the ethnically and racially diverse, but all students who are participatory in the content. This book provides educational stakeholders with culturally relevant and affirming techniques for utilizing multicultural literature as a pedagogical tool in social studies, mathematics, science, and reading. Each chapter provides a brief summary about the selected multicultural text and also contains an instructional strategy to be used. Following this, an inquiry-based lesson is provided with supplementary materials and resources that allow for K-12 differentiation.
Compassionately guides you through the practicalities of facing and finally accepting brokenness in your life a process that can ultimately bring mending. A clear-eyed, kindhearted method based on teachings and practices from many religious traditions."
For many believers, the mystery of the Holy Spirit remains just that. God in You, now in popular trade paperback format, is the layperson's guide to this often-misunderstood member of the Trinity. Pastor David Jeremiah explores the Holy Spirit in concrete terms, leaving abstract concepts behind. Not an idea, not an influence, not some vague, mystical force, Jeremiah explains, the Holy Spirit is actually the almighty God of the universe come to live inside the believer's skin. And a clear understanding and appreciation of His attributes can ignite the passion of every Christian's walk with Christ. In this compelling, gently instructive book Jeremiah affirms, "Without [the Spirit], we're about as useful to God's kingdom as an unplugged toaster."
I know that change is difficult but it is possible. I keep thinking that I will do something tomorrow and then tomorrow comes and I can't remember what it was I said that I was going to do, so I end up doing something else. For example, this collection of thoughts is years in the making. There were days that I was just too afraid to write about what I was dealing with, so I would put it off for another day. Then at the end of the day I realize what I was supposed to be doing. So then one day becomes two just like that. It is similar to standing on the sideline waiting for your turn at jump rope. I would make all the movements to jump in but kept waiting for the best time to jump in. Does anyone else know what that feels like? What I have learned about death is that every experience brought with it a new set of emotions in a different way. Sometimes it brought loneliness, other times it brought joy. Sometimes it brought sadness, other times it brought peace. Sometimes nothing came and that is when I hear the voice. The voice reminded me that for everything there is a season. A time to be born and a time to die. It is in this time of nothingness that I am finally able to accept the passing and have the ceremonial burial in my spirit. Reflections What I Know to Be True will take you on a journey that you will want to share with your spouse, sisters and friends. Jema has a unique way of telling a story that will allow you to see yourself in it and to grow from it.
A shaman can serve as a healer, storyteller, and a keeper of wisdom—but most of all, teaches Sandra Ingerman, “Shamans radiate a light that uplifts everybody. In our culture, we tend to focus on methods and forget that the greatest way we can offer healing to the world is to become a vessel of love.” With Walking in Light, this renowned teacher offers a complete guide for living in a shamanic way—empowered by purpose, focus, and a deep connection to the spiritual dimensions. “Shamanism remains so relevant because it continues to evolve to meet the needs of the times and culture,” teaches Sandra. Here you are invited to participate in the modern evolution of this ancient and powerful form of spirituality, featuring: • Foundational practices—lucid instruction on the shamanic journey, ceremonies, and other techniques for accessing the hidden realms of spirit • Compassionate spirits, allies, and ancestors—how to contact and build a relationship with your power animals and spiritual helpers • Healing from a shamanic perspective—practices that can integrate with and enhance any healing modality • Guidance for deepening your connection with the environment and the rhythms of the natural world • Ways to cultivate a rich inner landscape that empowers your intentions and actions in every aspect of your life, and much more Walking in Light is a comprehensive resource filled with practical techniques, indigenous wisdom, and invaluable guidance for both new and experienced shamanic practitioners. Most importantly, Sandra Ingerman illuminates the meaning behind the practices—revealing our universe as a place where spirit is the ultimate reality, where our intentions shape our world, and where unseen allies support us on every step of our journey.
