His New York Times phenomenon The Prayer of Jabez changed how millions pray. Now Bruce Wilkinson wants to change what they do next. Anyone can do a good deed, but some good works can only happen by an act of God. Around the world these acts are called miracles–not that even religious people expect to see one any time soon. But what would happen if millions of ordinary people walked out each morning expecting God to deliver a miracle through them to a person in need? You Were Born for This starts with the dramatic premise that everyone at all times is in need of a miracle, and that God is ready to meet those needs supernaturally through ordinary people who are willing to learn the "protocol of heaven." In the straightforward, story-driven, highly motivating style for which he is known, Wilkinson describes how anyone can be a 'Delivery Guy' from heaven in such universally significant arenas of life as finances, practical help, relationships, purpose and spiritual growth. You Were Born for This will change how you see your world and show you what you can expect God to do through you to meet real needs. You will master seven simple tools of service, and come to say with confidence, "I want to deliver a supernatural gift from God to someone in need today–and I expect to!" From the Hardcover edition.

His passion for the Countess Guiccioli is subsiding into playful fondness, and he confesses to his sister Augusta that he is not "so furiously in love as at first."

Stereotypes of the Native American in United States Literature and the Visual Arts, 1776-1894

This volume examines the ways in which attempts to define and delimit American nationhood effected imaginative and documentary conceptualizations of the Native American population. Far-reaching in its scope, both in terms of the period covered - roughly the period from the Declaration of Independence to the closing of the frontier - and in terms of the variety and kinds of documents examined, this study calls attention to the cultural and generic restraints that prevented visual and literary artists, as well as statesmen and community leaders, from adopting any position toward Native Americans other than a prejudicial one.

Three deaths of family members in four years, including my husband, did not prepare me for the words I was hearing from the police chief. “Christopher has been killed by a school bus.” Death did not come quietly that cold February morning but crashed into my life like a destroying tornado. The tragic death of my tenyear- old grandson, whom I was raising, set me on a deep, dark journey into grief. This was a frightening journey I had never traveled before, and I didn’t want to be on this path of despair. I was not alone, for a gracious, loving, sovereign God journeyed with me through this strange, unknown valley and brought me through to victory. Someday there will be a final victory over death, as we see in Scripture. Revelation 21:4: “And He shall wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there shall no longer be any death; there shall no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain the first things have passed away.”

“If you’re alive, there’s a purpose for your life.” Rick Warren Trapped in a life of delusions, failures, losses and frustrations, we tend to become conditioned by what we think, what we feel and, mostly, by what others want us to think and feel. Reality is and has always been an instrument of our soul for the purpose of spiritual development, but by forgetting such fact we tend to be the instrument of that reality. Our inner voice and the accumulation of pain over time, eventually leads us to realize that we’re out of track. No therapy or friend in the entire world can help us go back in track, because each being is unique. The only person that can help us to understand our life’s purpose is one and only ourselves. The problem arises when, after many years of living out of track, we realize that we don’t know who we are any more, what we’ve done wrong, which choices we should take and what we love the most in our life. Somehow, we realize that we’ve lost ourselves due to an intense living under activities that we don’t love but must do in order to maintain what we believe to be a stable life. In order to find back life’s purpose, this book was created and organized in different levels of self-awareness. Through the chapters presented, it’s possible to practice the remembering of past memories and awake our true self. Carefully explained with specific details, the book also intends to allow the understanding of how reality, mind and dream, work together to bring a fulfilling life when we operate under our own destiny. Although most people may confuse destiny with free will, both are one and the same. What makes you happy the most is your destiny. If you change the activities that make you happy all the time and your goals, this means you’re developing as a soul. There are only two ways in life: One leads to prosperity in both spirit and life, what can be measured in financial success as well as happiness; The other leads to frustration, fear, anxiety and death. In fact, it’s well known that most of the deaths occur by the increasing of negative thoughts and emotions, which in their turn affect the health of our body. In knowing this, we also can understand that when we’re fulfilling our destiny in the right way our health improves and our happiness increases.
