The Practice Of The Presence Of God

The Practice Of The Presence Of God

BY BROTHER LAWRENCE OF THE RESURRECTION
The Practice of the Presence of God is a text compiled by Father Joseph de Beaufort of the wisdom and teachings of Brother Lawrence, a 17th century Carmelite monk. It is a collection of his letters, and records made, by other participants in them, of his conversations. For nearly 300 years this unparalleled classic has given both blessing and instruction to those who can be content with nothing less than knowing God in all His majesty and feeling His loving presence throughout each simple day. Translated by Donald Attwater with an introduction by Dorothy Day.

Falling Upward

Falling Upward

A Spirituality For The Two Halves Of Life

BY RICHARD ROHR
Most of us tend to think of the second half of life as largely about getting old, dealing with health issues, and letting go of life, but the whole thesis of this book is exactly the opposite. What looks like falling down can largely be experienced as "falling upward." With rare insight, Rohr takes us on a journey to give us an understanding of how the heartbreaks, disappointments, and first loves of life are actually stepping stones to the spiritual joys that the second half of life has in store for us.

Sacred Harp And American Folksong

BY JOHN BEALE
19th century Americans were inundated by books of Sharpe note singing, but only the popularity of The Sacred Harp has endured throughout the 20th century. With this as his focus, John Bealle surveys definitive moments in American musical history, from the lively singing schools of the New England Puritans to the bold "New South" movement that sought to transform the southern economy, from the nostalgic culture-writing era of the Great Depression to the post-World War II folksong revival.

Nurtureshock

New Thinking About Children

BY PO BRONSON, ASHLEY MERRYMAN
One of the most influential books about children ever published, Nurture Shock offers a revolutionary new perspective on children that upends a library's worth of conventional wisdom. With impeccable storytelling and razor-sharp analysis, the authors demonstrate that many of modern society's strategies for nurturing children are in fact backfiring--because key twists in the science have been overlooked. Nothing like a parenting manual, NurtureShock gets to the core of how we grow, learn and live.

Pendle Hill Pamphlet 315

BY HARRIET HEATH
"Seeing my child as a wonderer with the potential of growing into goodness expands my understanding of that child and defines my role as a parent or caregiver.

Parenting As A Spiritual Practice-php 396

BY EILEEN FLANAGAN
When Eileen Flanagan became a mother, her spiritual world was dramatically discomposed. Bringing children into her life required her to find new ways to discern God's leadings; her ways of experiencing connection to the Divine were transformed; and her personal spiritual practices were tried, tested, and ultimately reinvented. In telling her own story - the challenges faced, the lessons learned - she calls on Friends to recognize parenthood as a phase of spiritual development with special gifts and needs, and suggest ways that we may begin to support the faith lives of parents and help our meetings be more fully multigenerational. Discussion questions are included.

Paths To Quaker Parenting

Paths To Quaker Parenting

Using Quaker Beliefs, Testimonies And Practices

EDITED BY HARRIET HEATH
Parents ask questions: How should I respond to my three-year-old's whining for a cookie at 5:30? Should my nine-year-old have both an IPod and a cell phone, or neither? How do I deal with my anger when my teenager rolls his eyes and doesn't move after I've asked him to take out the trash? As Quakers parents look to their faith for guidance. How does my belief, that there is a Way, impact my parenting? How will I parent following the Peace Testimony especially when I am angry? This book is the sharing of a group of parents who have struggled with concerns such as these, have looked to their Quaker faith and found there strength and guidance.

Our Life Is Love And Peace

BOURNE, TRACY
Australian Friends’ 2014 annual Backhouse Lecture is published here in a finely made booklet with unfortunately small type. This lecture addresses the impending crises and great changes to which Quakers are called to respond. How can we act with strength when our worshipping communities are fractured along generational lines? Tracy Bourne looks to the Quaker tradition of spiritual activism to argue that we need children and young people to help us prepare for the difficult times ahead. Children carry the energy of new life and reveal the greatest gift of the Spirit: love.

Homeschooling And The Curriculum Of Love

BY DAVID ALBERT
Education is not so complicated! Homeschooling advocate and author David H. Albert insists that the curriculum of love is not about externals. It is about what is essential in each individual human being and in every child. Its code words are communication, inquisitiveness, acceptance, joy, honesty, courage, and, curiously, perhaps above all, intimacy. It demands that we assist our children in seeking to embrace a world that is their own.

7 Keys To Turn Family Conflict Into Co-operation

BY SURA HART AND VICTORIA KINDLE HODSON
This handbook urges parents to move beyond typical discipline techniques by creating an environment based on mutual respect, emotional safety, and positive, open communication. The seven outlined principles redefine the parent-dominated family by teaching parents how to achieve mutual parent/child respect without being submissive, set firm limits without using demands or coercion, and empower children to open up, cooperate, and realize their own innate potential. Based on Marshall Rosenberg's Nonviolent Communication process, the framework helps parents break down the barriers to outstanding relationships with their kids by avoiding destructive language and habits.
