End Your Grammar Insecurity Forever! Are you the student going back to school after some time away and finding yourself anxious about grammar, usage and punctuation? Are you the business professional who has to get the grammar right-and who’s been embarrassed once or twice when you didn’t? Maybe you are the tired mom or dad trying to help your child with homework-and worried about your ability to do that. Or maybe you are a high school student who doesn’t want to graduate without being sure you are ready for college English classes. If you fit any of those categories, The Grammar You Missed in High School is the perfect book for you. Its friendly style, lean definitions, and common-sense examples-many of them hilarious-make this book different from the dry, boring textbooks of the past.

You definitely will feel better when you read the numerous examples of language mistakes published and broadcast by “professionals.” The Grammar You Missed in High School provides the ideal refresher for the student who should have paid a little closer attention back in school-or for the student who never received instruction in the fundamentals in the first place. It’s suitable to be used in class with other students or at home for learners working on their own. Each topic is clarified with examples and supplemented with review exercises, and the answer key provides explanations for the correct responses. It’s a book that will help you become a better writer, reader, and thinker.

The more each one of us knows about our intended life partner, the greater the opportunity to build a long-lasting, more durable and meaningful relationship. “Basics About the Typical Adult Female Human” is a work booklet designed to be an interactive communication tool for men who sincerely want to know and understand what is most important and most needed for the women in their lives. This tool provides a framework for obtaining at least some of that information and helps to set the stage for a couple to discuss these things. Intimate knowledge between two loving individuals can lead to a truly intimate relationship on several levels. Men who understand, respect and apply this knowledge in their relationship will be better able to provide the support and nurturance that is needed for the woman in their lives to blossom more fully – to achieve her spiritual intention. This intention may range from being a wife and mother to being a career woman, or to being a blend of the two, or both in different stages of her life. This booklet provides: a Background – an underlying perspective for men using this booklet which includes a list of what most women take responsibility for and/or experience, and a note about one of women’s most primal needs; Observations – a partial blend of specific areas and issues of behaviors, gender differences and misunderstandings that can be of importance in building and maintaining a long-term, loving relationship; and, Suggestions – some things that might be of particular importance to your woman when sharing a home and family life. When used as suggested in the instructions, this booklet helps set the stage to facilitate more effective communication to help establish, maintain, repair, or improve a long-term, loving and meaningful relationship.

Love Your Enemies. All of us have people in our lives that we feel are impossible to deal with. They just won’t be nice to us or respect us in anyway no matter how kind we are to them. whether it be a family member, a coworker, someone you go to school with or even someone whom you have just met. For some reason they just don’t care about you. Jesus calls us all, to love all people, especially our enemies. How then can we love those who are always putting us down? Jesus teaches us that there is no credit in only loving those who love you back (Luke 6:32 KJV). The merit is received when we love the ones who don’t love us at all. How then can we love someone that wants to hurt us? Christ has given us his teaching that we should all love our enemies, bless those who curse us, do good to those that hate us, and pray for those who despitefully use us, and persecute us. This seems somewhat impossible, but anything is possible with God. When we rely on all that Christ has taught us and fall back on his love for us, we can do anything, we can change the world. This book contains nine practical principles on how to love your enemies. It is by applying these principles in our daily life, that our lives will get better and we will learn how to deal with those people who hate us and those who just down right ruin our day. Each of these principles has been derived from Christ’s teachings of how we should love our enemies. These nine principles are a fundamental approach to a Christ centered life, that makes you Christ’s light in the world. By applying these nine principles in your daily life. You will find that most of the people who don’t care about you, will start to care about you more and those who continue to treat you badly wont bother you at all. It is through Christ That we are saved and through Christ’s teachings that we learn how to live a life that is worthy of Heaven. So, let’s use a practical approach to this issue and ask Jesus for his grace, to learn these new behaviors. So that we may shine Christ’s light in the darkest of places.
