Description : Each day presents women with an unending parade of choices. What will you choose? In this new edition of Jill Briscoe's popular guide, she addresses the crucial issues that women face on a daily basis. Using the book of James as a model, Briscoe examines the following choices that most women face: To resist pain or to use it; to gather wealth or to gather grace; to speak wisely or to speak foolishly; to value our time or to fritter it away; to live for ourselves or to live for the Spirit; to develop God's gifts or to waste them; to persevere or to protest; and to stand for truth or to abandon it.
Description : Bone of My Bones fictionalizes a Biblical equality and mutuality.

Description : This unique book draws on an Australia-wide, longitudinal study, which traces the careers of 3,500 individuals over two decades. The authors use this rich data to explore important aspects of women's careers. Women have been at the vanguard of social and occupational change during this period, and the authors examine the impact on women's lives of the concurrent changes in Australia's educational, occupational, social, and political profile. They look at areas such as attainment, orientations, success criteria, conflict, and stress. The book provides a useful critique and summary of existing career and occupational theories, pointing to crucial gender differences in the development of careers. The authors propose a new model of career development which embraces the experiences of both women and men, and make policy recommendations relevant to employers, career analysts and advisers, and governments.
Description : Modern European societies are witnessing a number of key changes in family structures, such as postponed parenthood, low fertility, single parenting and increased divorce rates. As a consequence of the radical changes taking place in our societies, family policies often result in a complex set of targeted and sometimes contradictory measures and forms of public intervention. The three authors of this volume review the major demographic challenges posed by changing patterns in family and family formation and strive to identify possible policy responses by governments. They stress the need for all levels of government and the private sector to adopt an integrated and balanced approach to policy in order to create cohesive and family-friendly societies. This volume is a thematic compilation of the background papers on the policy implications of changing family formations prepared for the European Population Conference (Strasbourg, 7-8 April 2005).
