It is vastly uncontested that Moms have the most underpaid and stressful job. Reports indicate that Moms find their best support from other moms, those who have felt and are handling the same familiar stressors. This book does not contain what you should do, or condemn you for what you are or are not doing. This book is a collection of stories from Moms who have been-there-done-that. The stories are humorous, entertaining and educational. These stories may not make your child go to bed on time, eat their vegetables, stop pestering the dog or quit taunting their siblings. However, it may give you a break from your day, a smile when you need one and an idea or two from someone else’s experience. Pre-Release reviews: “This book is great.

When was the last time a Christian hurt you? The demonic trio of slander, gossip, and offense has gained huge momentum both in our society and in the church. They ruin marriages, relationships, destroy churches, and discredit those in spiritual leadership. Even worse, instead of fighting them, believers daily aid these spirits. And daily, other believers fall victim. The church's main problem today is a lack of love, forgiveness, and unity. Satan's favorite lie is that spiritual attacks always come from outside—that Christians can't hurt each other. But when Pastor Kynan Bridges rips the mask off of the accuser, the truth is revealed: Satan's spirits of slander, gossip, and offense are determined to tear the kingdom apart, and they use believers to do it—leading to bitterness and spiritual disease. With a careful study of the Word of God, Pastor Kynan shows a way out. In this book, you will learn how to: Recognize the devastation of slander Identify the satanic nature of gossip Avoid the temptation to be hurt and offended Release those who have wounded you Use love and forgiveness as a powerful weapon to walk in victory over the enemy, the accuser of the brethren.
This book explores and addresses body search practices in prison environments from different angles (criminology, sociology, human rights and law) and discusses such practices in different national contexts within Europe. Body searches are widely used in prison systems across the globe: they are perceived as indispensable to prevent forbidden substances, weapons or communication devices from entering the prison. However, these are also invasive and potentially degrading control techniques. It should not come as a surprise, then, that body searches are deeply contested security measures and that they have been widely debated and regulated. What makes theses control measures problematic in a prison context? How do these practices come to be regulated in an international and European context? How are rules translated into national law? To what extent are laws and rules respected, bent, circumvented and denied? And what does the future hold for body searches?

Lydia Millet’s debut novel, first published in 1996, is an explosive satire that scorches our culture’s monstrous men and institutions. In a claustrophobic, surreal California house, teenager Estée Kraft lives with her domineering father, whose obsession with insect taxonomy bleeds into sadism. As his schemes multiply, Estée’s bedridden mother, entranced by the glow of the shopping channel, remains oblivious to the escalating chaos. Estée manages to escape her childhood home only to find new horrors awaiting her in marriage and motherhood. In a climactic twist, her traumas take form in flesh and blood—a legacy of the voracious male appetites that have haunted her life. With acerbic wit, philosophical depth, and enthralling lyricism, Omnivores cuts to the core of America’s hypocrisies and anxieties, and introduced Lydia Millet as one of the wildest satirists of our time.
