Wreck This Journal is here to inspire you." --Buzzfeed The internationally bestselling phenomenon with over 7 million copies sold! Paint, poke, create, destroy, and wreck--to create a journal as unique as you are For anyone who's ever had trouble starting, keeping, or finishing a journal or sketchbook comes this expanded edition of Wreck This Journal, a subversive illustrated book that challenges readers to muster up their best mistake- and mess-making abilities to fill the pages of the book--or destroy them. Through a series of creative and quirky prompts, acclaimed guerilla artist Keri Smith encourages journalers to engage in destructive acts--poking holes through pages, adding photos and defacing them, painting pages with coffee, coloring outside the lines, and more--in order to experience the true creative process. With Smith's unique sensibility, readers are introduced to a new way of art- and journal-making, discovering novel ways to escape the fear of the blank page and fully engage in the creative process. To create is to destroy. Happy wrecking!

What separates pastors who finish well from those who don’t? When trusted pastors fall into sin and destroy a ministry, the entire body of believers gets hurt. After helping two large churches through the aftermath of such an event, Daniel Henderson discovered that pastoral failings are not primarily rooted in overdeveloped passions for self and sin but rather in underfed visions of eternity and a lack of zeal for God’s glory. In Glorious Finish, Daniel Henderson teaches you: Why focusing on God’s glory is the key to a fruitful ministry How leaders can build habits that keep them captivated by God and His glory How to stay glory-oriented in the grind, challenges, and spiritual attacks of ministry Forget the latest techniques and the strategies—spend some time recentering on what you know is most important—His glory.

After you've played your twenty-seventh game of shuffleboard today, and one more lobster dinner is going to force you to grow claw crackers, find a quiet place with a comfortable deck chair. I've heard people say that a cruise ship is exciting and boring, riotous and relaxing, and they'll either never travel any other way again or move to the desert. Nevertheless, everyone seems to agree-the ships are always packed with enough people to make single-file a lifestyle. Here's a book to take with you when you do locate an unpopulated corner of your floating pool deck. Two dozen ways to escape from anxious deckhands laden with fresh towels, single women and men seeking a night, a cruise, or a bankroll, and those wonderful toddlers who think every solid object is a drum. The stories are grouped together in groups of three with some obvious, well maybe not always obvious, connection. Read them slowly, alone or with a friend, if that's your reason for taking the ship in the first place. Take your time, though, don't rush; save a few stories for the lifeboat.

How did the Victorians read novels? Nicholas Dames answers that deceptively simple question by revealing a now-forgotten range of nineteenth-century theories of the novel, a range based in a study of human physiology during the act of reading, He demonstrates the ways in which the Victorians thought they read, and uncovers surprising responses to the question of what might have transpired in the minds and bodies of readers of Victorian fiction. His detailed studies of novelcritics who were also interested in neurological science, combined with readings of novels by Thackeray, Eliot, Meredith, and Gissing, propose a vision of the Victorian novel-reader as far from the quietly immersed being we now imagine - as instead a reader whose nervous system was addressed, attacked, andsoothed by authors newly aware of the neural operations of their public. Rich in unexpected intersections, from the British response to Wagnerian opera to the birth of speed-reading in the late nineteenth century, The Physiology of the Novel challenges our assumptions about what novel-reading once did, and still does, to the individual reader, and provides new answers to the question of how novels influenced a culture's way of reading, responding, and feeling.

This book is prepared to answer the demands for the practical guidance of systems analysis and design methods. The author hopes that after reading this book, the reader can understand the concepts and techniques to analyze and design the systems. In general, there are 2 (two) main methods that most often used in system development: structured and object-oriented methods. The book explains a significant paradigm difference between the two methods of analyzing and designing the systems. The author expects the readers can distinguish that paradigm as well as analyze and design using both methods. The book structure starts from the concept to technical. The author uses the Unified Modeling Language (UML), which is widely used, for documenting object-oriented modeling. The UML has proven its ability to document and model the systems on a large, medium, and small scale.

As publisher of Natural Awakenings Long Island magazine, each month Kelly Martinsen writes a letter to readers that sets the tone of that issue's unique editorial theme. Four years ago, within two days of publishing her first letter, 'You Only Regret the Things You Don't Do,' a reader called to thank her for the thought-provoking piece that spoke deeply to her. Month after month, topic after topic, responses to Martinsen's editorial letters grew and readers were connecting with her words in life-changing ways. A Year of Inspired Living is a monthly chapter book with weekly sub-chapters, compiling and expanding on Martinsen's letters leaving the last page of each week for the reader to write their own letter. Chapter topics include: love, commitment, faith, challenges, death, freedom, middle age, children, cancer, dog poop and more. Written in a familiar voice, A Year of Inspired Living speaks with wisdom, tongue-in-cheek self-effacing humor, and raw honesty to help readers reach into the hidden corners of their lives and develop a greater awareness of their own personal relationships and journeys. To help them reap the maximum benefit of their experiences, a reflection question and blank page follows each weekly entry, guiding and inspiring them to record their own life-story.
