7 Days to Lasting Intimacy with Your Spouse

By Ed Young and Lisa Young

  • Paperback
  • £11.99

Pastor and speaker Ed Young with his wife Lisa, expounds on the nature and necessity of intimacy, and encourages married couples to experience the benefits that result from a healthy sex life.

The predominant message in our culture is that it's okay to have sex whenever, wherever, and however we want. Sex has become just sex. But while society has taken sex too far, the church hasn't taken it far enough.

God wants couples to make love in marriage-with passion, with purpose, and with pleasure. Marriages aren't experiencing all the benefits that come from a healthy sex life. Couples are facing a barrage of influences that keep them from connecting with each other regularly-the kids, the career, the house, the errands, etc.

SEXPERIMENT shows people that sex in marriage is more than just sex, and it's more than a chore. The Young's believes it's time to get back to understanding the context of sex in marriage and that it's time for couples to bust through the barriers that are in the way of a healthy sexual relationship. Couples ought to experience the benefits of having sex regularly, intentionally, and creatively. SEXPERIMENT will allow couples to discover that the intersection of God and sex can lead to a life punctuated by exclamation marks!

Ask Me About My Uterus

Abby Norman
Authors:
Abby Norman

Faced with a cascade of un-diagnosable symptoms, a young college student is compelled to trade her textbooks for medical journals and dance classes for doctor's offices as she strives to find answers and to advocate for recognition of women's pain.One otherwise uneventful morning, Abby Norman woke up and went to take a shower. Out of nowhere, she was struck down by an excruciating, nauseating pain and collapsed on the bathroom floor.Unable, perhaps at times even unwilling, to diagnose her symptoms and take her pain seriously, doctors suggested Norman's condition was "all in her head." Although she was vaguely aware of the fraught relationship between women's bodies and the male-dominated medical profession--from Dr. Freud and Dora to Dr. Wilbur and Sybil--Norman trusted their assessment and turned her examination inward.Still, the physical pain persisted. When she was eventually diagnosed with endometriosis, she thought she'd found the answer. But then an even more unusual medical condition befell her that had nothing to do with her reproductive system. When the doctors were once again mystified-or just downright unsympathetic-Norman realized the fight had only just begun.Combining her findings from medical research past and present, interviews with experts and patients, and a hearty dose of pop culture appreciation, Norman takes readers on a journey by turns infuriating, humorous and inspiring. Putting her own misadventures into a broader historical, sociocultural, and political context, Norman shows that women's bodies have long been the battleground of a never-ending war for power, control, medical knowledge and truth. And that it's time to refute the belief that being a woman is a pre-existing condition.

Keep Marching

Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner
Authors:
Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner

In the months since Donald Trump's shocking presidential upset, a movement has been coalescing in America-and when millions of women descended upon Washington, DC in January 2017 (and six hundred sister marches all across the country and the world), it was a wake-up call and the largest single-day demonstration in the history of the United States. But the truth is, women's rights didn't start or end there. There's a lot more to do. In Keep Marching, CEO of MomsRising.org and one of the contributing authors of the Unity Principles Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner examines societal, institutional, and political barriers that women historically and currently face and what you can do to dismantle them. Filled with inspiring stories from women on the front lines, along with revealing facts and insights on key issues to arm you with the intel you need to debate anyone from a male chauvinist boss to a policymaker, Keep Marching is a groundbreaking, definitive work that will help move our country forward. With each chapter focusing on different issues, from gender and racial discriminating laws, mass incarceration, family economic security, glass ceilings, violence against women, reproductive rights and more; Rowe-Finkbeiner offers practical tips and to-do lists on organizing and effecting change in our own communities, advances policy solutions that will lift everyone, and shares high impact strategies that anyone can use to keep marching online and on the ground (and why it matters so much).This book is a roadmap for a continued movement toward equality. More and more people realize that democracy isn't about one election, one Oval Office, one march, or one day-but it is instead about making democracy a regular practice in our everyday lives. Keep Marching calls for a continued path to change-and it will be lifted by the platform of action and engagement of MomsRising.org, which has an audience of over a million women.100% of the proceeds of the book will be donated to MomsRising.

A survivor of the Great Depression, a Second World War veteran, a lifelong Labour supporter and a proud Yorkshire man, Harry's life has straddled two centuries. As a young man, he witnessed a country in crisis with no healthcare, no relief for the poor, and a huge economic gulf between the North and South. Now in his nineties, Harry wanders through the streets of his youth and wonders whether anything has actually changed.Britain is at its most dangerous juncture since Harry's youth - the NHS and social housing are in crisis, whilst Brexit and an unpopular government continue to divide the country - but there is hope.

Britain has overcome adversity before and will do so again - a new nation will be forged from the ashes of grave injustice.Moving and passionate, Don't Let My Past be Your Future interweaves memoir and polemic in a call to arms.

Street Smarts From Proverbs

Mitch Kruse, D.J. Williams
Authors:
Mitch Kruse, D.J. Williams

STREET SMARTS FROM PROVERBS reveals Solomon's steps to divine wisdom while providing tools to navigate out of conflict into community.When Mitch Kruse, who once ruled the collector car auction world, lost almost everything the day after the IRS raided his company, he learned that going to church three times a week while growing up did not guarantee the answer to one question, "Have you ever thought about changing the scorecard of your life from money to wisdom?" His pursuit to find the answer sparked a lifelong journey through the ultimate wisdom book for emerging leaders, Proverbs, one that connects God's heart with street smarts. Mitch introduces each of the 12 words with a real-life story of someone who has experienced God's miraculous restoration through humbling their heart to Him. In every subsequent chapter, Mitch explains, illustrates, and applies one of the four components of each pearl, providing an easy-to-understand, yet life-transforming, step-by-step process to assimilate each respective trait of wisdom. Using practical analogies, Mitch gives memorable tools for the reader to recall every point with the purpose of applying it to conflict at work, with family, among friends, and in ministry. He shares tangible tools to be shrewd, yet harmless, in business dealings; how to separate wisdom from foolishness though discretion; and how to seek wise counsel for life's decisions. Mitch concludes the book with the timeless truths of discipline, intimacy with God and others, and how to become a lifelong learner.

A Generation of Sociopaths

Bruce Cannon Gibney
Authors:
Bruce Cannon Gibney

We are living in a time when it has become fashionable to question the American Dream and to proclaim the end of American exceptionalism (though it's not clear what that is or was). It's Reagan's, Bush's, Clinton's, Bush's, Obama's fault that social security is under threat, government spending on healthcare remains unfunded, roads and bridges are cracking, interest hovers at zero, real job and wage growth have disappeared. Both political parties get blamed. But who make up these parties' constituencies, those who have wielded power for over 30 years? Baby boomers.Styled as a polemic, A GENERATION OF SOCIOPATHS argues for swift action to curtail the benefits that baby boomers have taken from other Americans, serving only their own needs at the expense of both the nation and future generations. Gibney outlines how our country, once at the brink of prosperity and peace, has been hijacked for the self-serving needs of those born of the Greatest Generation. Despite how stark that appears, the world is not zero sum; there is no reason that the improving international standard of living and economy must weigh in at the expense of our own. America currently stands at an intersection and must answer the decide whether to take steps to restore our infrastructure and make actual investments to the future or continue to fund an excessive lifestyle through debt.Exhaustively researched and passionately argued, A GENERATION OF SOCIOPATHS will become a landmark book about the American economy and policymaking.
