Breaking Night Book Excerpt:

____________________________________ Liz Murray never really had a chance in life. Born to a drug-addicted father who was in and out of prison, and an equally dependent mother who was in and out of mental institutions, she seemed destined to become just another tragic statistic; another life wasted on the brutal streets of New York. By the age of 15, Liz found herself homeless with nowhere to turn but the tough streets, riding subways all night for a warm place to sleep and foraging through dumpsters for food. But when her mother died of AIDS a year later, Liz's life changed for ever. With no education, with no chance at a job or a home, she realised that only the most astonishing of turnarounds could stop her heading all the way down the same path her parents took. And so she set her mind to overcoming what seemed like impossible odds - and in the process, achieved something extraordinary. Told with astounding sincerity, Breaking Night is the breathtaking and inspirational story of how a young women, born into a world without hope, used every ounce of strength and determination to steer herself towards a brighter future. Beautifully written, it is a poignant, evocative and stirring portrait of struggle, desperation, forgiveness and survival.

Bonded to the Abuser Book Excerpt:

Tens of thousands of children are removed from home each year due to some form of child maltreatment, usually physical neglect, physical abuse, or sexual abuse, although sometimes for emotional abuse as well. An additional significant number of children are victims of child maltreatment but remain in their home. Extensive research reveals the far reaching and long lasting negative impact of maltreatment on child victims, including on their physical, social, emotional, and behavioral functioning. One particularly troubling and complicated aspect is how the child victim forms (and maintains) a “traumatic bond” with his abuser, even becoming protective and defensive of that person despite the pain and suffering they have caused. This book will provide the reader with the essential experience of understanding how children make meaning of being maltreated by a parent, and how these traumatic bonds form and last. Through an examination of published memoirs of abuse, the authors analyze and reveal the commonalities in the stories to uncover the ways in which adult victims of childhood abuse understand and digest the traumatic experiences of their childhoods. This understanding can inform interventions and treatments designed for this vulnerable population and can help family and friends of victims understand more fully the maltreatment experience “from the inside out.”

The Mystery of Altars Book Excerpt:

Before the law, the revelation of altars existed, and in the law, altars existed. We also see altars in the New Testament. The revelation of altars is thus the key to spiritual power. Unfortunately, the church that should be the custodian of this revelation has since lost its principles. In this book, Dr. Isaiah Wealth exposes deep secrets of the principle of altars and the importance of adding the weapon ALTAR to our armoury. This great resource will equip you with the knowledge of; - The Origin of Altars - The Memory of Altars - The Mystery of Sacrifice - Understanding Covenants - The mystery of the blood - The Prayer Altar ....and lots more

Intentional Responsive Adult Practices Supporting Kids to Not Only Overcome Adversity but to Thrive Book Excerpt:

This book draws on positive psychology as well as strengths-based and solution-focused practices to empower adults to help children instead of reacting to their behavior. Erik K. Laursen, PhD, who has spent his career helping high-risk children and their families, identifies ten intentional responsive adult practices to give children the tools they need to overcome adversity. Learn how to: support young people to grow and develop throughout childhood, adolescence, into young adulthood; provide supportive relationships where children and young people thrive; and help children overcome social and emotional problems that are significant barriers to well-being. While numerous books, articles, and courses focus on the long-term effects of childhood trauma, this knowledge alone does not give us the tools we need to help children thrive. By learning how to reflect and intentionally respond to childrenÕs pain, which is the focus of this book, youÕll be able to help young people transform their lives.
