Many people are curious about what goes on behind the scenes at a funeral home. Add a live-in family to this scenario, and you'll Step Into Our Lives at the Funeral Home. Shh! Be quiet! There's someone at the door! Don't ever talk about anything you have seen or heard concerning someone's death outside the walls of our home. Mourning families need to know they can trust our integrity and our ability to keep confidentiality. For the author's family, these admonitions were ingrained in the children's minds at an early age. This book gives an insightful view of every facet of the funeral, from the time a death call is received until the funeral is completed. Stories of days in the ambulance business in conjunction with the funeral home are also related. The funeral director's role, the spouse's role, the children's role, and how the children thrived in an atmosphere of death are shared with the reader. How funeral directors cope with stress and how wives cope with their husbands during these times are revealed. Years later, following a tragic death, three people look back and share their stories of moving from despair to recovery. Interspersed through every chapter are stories and vignettes shared by many funeral directors throughout the Midwest, concerning the lifestyle for the family living in the funeral home and true incidents of specific funerals. Some stories are sad. Others are tragic. A few are humorous. Embracing faith, hope, and love is a primary requisite for healing. Intended audience: General readers of all ages, funeral home directors, hospice patients, mortuary students, and people who have had a loved one die by natural means or tragedy.

“A comprehensive guide for parents who are unfortunately given the ‘bad news’ regarding their pre-born child with either an ultrasound or laboratory diagnosis of a potential or real congenital problem. It explains to them both secular and religious faith-based strategies on how to emotionally, psychologically and spiritually prepare for and assimilate the multiple and various emotions they will have to reconcile, as well as how to deal with the mixed messages they will be receiving from family members, friends, physicians, and their own inner conflicting feelings…. My prayers have been answered in Madeline Pecora Nugent’s My Child, My Gift.” From the Foreword by MARK X. LOWNEY "This volume is a must read for each parent, grandparent and friend. Nugent has answered every question asked regarding the pains and joys of motherhood. Madeline's words are written to mothers who crave honest counsel and anticipate earnest guidance. To call this book "Every Mother's Bible" would sound irreverent. But sincerely this is undoubtedly the most profound and complete guide to understanding what love means at the heart of becoming a mother. This treasure piece is essential to occupy every woman's library.” TERRI GREEN Author of Simple Acts of Kindness Includes many insights and experiences of parents, along with b/w photos of their children.

In this Ethnic Blends Ebook, multi-ethnic church pioneer Mark DeYmaz provides an up-close and personal look at seven common challenges to mixing diversity into your local church. Through real-life stories and practical illustrations, DeYmaz shows how to overcome the obstacles in order to build a healthy multi-ethnic church. He also includes the insights of other effective, multi-ethnic local church pastors from around the country.Increasingly, church leaders are recognizing the intrinsic power and beauty of the multi-ethnic church. Yet, more than a good idea, it's a biblical, first-century standard with far-reaching evangelistic potential. How can your church overcome the obstacles in order to become a healthy, fruitful multi-ethnic church of faith? And why should you even try?“Ethnic Blends will help every church broaden its horizon of outreach, love and care for their city. Acts 1:8 commands us to reach the uttermost parts of the earth. Today, the "uttermost parts" are found within a few miles of where you live. God called us to reach people, love people and help them grow in Christ, no matter their background. Mark's book helps us recapture that vision in a powerful way.” —Jonathan Falwell, pastor, Thomas Road Baptist Church

Well-meaning church leaders and planters often set out to radically transform their communities for Christ-kingdom causes. Their aspirations and visions are limitless. However, often the best-laid plans fail to yield results of any consequence—they become frustrated, and pull the plug leaving behind the remnants of all their best intentions. Does it have to be this way? Is it possible for a local church to become so influential in its community that it becomes a life-giving agent for believers and non-believers? A resource that becomes the catalyst whereby abandoned buildings are repurposed, small businesses attracted, jobs created, crime reduced, justice progressed, health improved, and ultimately, the kingdom of God advanced in such a way that it impacts the every corner of the community? In Disruption: Repurposing the Church to Redeem the Community, Dr. Mark DeYmaz explains why such an outlook it not only possible but essential for the church to gain credibility and relevance in the community it seeks to influence. Genuine transformation never occurs through maintaining the status quo. A Disruption is often the missing ingredient that moves the church from ineffective to radically transformative.

Er stieg hoch, fiel tief und stand wieder auf, um zu einem weiteren Höhenflug anzusetzen: Johnny Cash, 1932-2003, war und ist eine Ikone, weit über die Countrymusikszene, in der er sich bewegte, hinaus. Legendär waren seine Konzerte in den Gefängnissen Folsom und San Quentin Ende der 60er-Jahre. Besonders aber mit seinen letzten vier Alben, den "American Recordings", fand er weltweit große Anerkennung. Cash, der den Beinamen "Man in Black" trug, hat in seiner Karriere etwa 500 Songs geschrieben, mehr als 53 Millionen Tonträger verkauft und wurde mit 13 Grammy Awards ausgezeichnet. Spätestens seit dem Kinofilm "Walk the Line" von 2006 ist er im allgemeinen Bewusstsein als Musik-Ikone verankert.
