This book is an astute observation by a lay person, not in the medical fi eld, as well as not in the professional clinical psychology fi eld. The author is a clergyman. He was raised in the atmosphere of a household where serious identifi cation problems existed. The author became acclimated to this household environment, and actually found it to be pleasant. He now remembers it as the wonderful days of childhood back on the family farm. As a result, there has developed, a tolerance of people who have acute I D problems, as well as a savvy, and a God given discernment capability. People who have I D as well as other psychological problems feel drawn to this author. The author makes no claim to holding any applicable credential as a professional, in some of the fi elds of interest presented by this book. He claims no medical knowledge more than common knowledge, nor professional psychology knowledge beyond common knowledge. He has done his research as a writer, and defers to professionals. Nothing is intended to suggest that this book is about the practice of medicine by the author, nor any credentialed psychological service by the author. This book is the author’s autobiography, and is intended to be a documentary of a lay persons observations. I do hope that some professional experts can fi nd these observations helpful to their cause.

Building Your Dream Muscle is a lifelong process that collaborates desire with the synergy of gratitude and faith to manifest the reality of dreams come true. The author shares from her journal over a one-year span the diverse challenges that the reader may experience while implementing the process to achieve their dreams. At a pivotal time in the author's life, she prayerfully sought the answers to the questions, "What is my purpose?" "Why do some experience so much success, while others continuously struggle?" "Why is God not helping me?" "What am I doing so wrong?" With every prayer for answers came enlightenment through a spiritual mentor, a book, a song, a message, and then through writing letters to the father. Experiential faith is a personal process through enlightenment. With the ability to laugh at herself, the author shares her very own kind of humor along with the moments of complete loss of hope. The dream muscle work-out transformed through the testing of hypothesis to refi ne the ability to literally do the impossible. Th e author has a proven record of successes including selling her home beyond repair for cash in less than twenty-four hours, the purchase of a new van with modifications, purchasing a home that was fully wheelchair accessible, receiving full scholarship and funding to return to college, and complete a bachelor's degree. The single mother of three changed her life and is sharing the story to encourage others that are prayerfully seeking the answer to how they, too, can make dreams come true. The reader will be empowered with the steps and encouragement to change their life. They will realize their unlimited power to create. How long does it take to change your life? As long as it takes to think your next thought.

Despite ethnography's long and distinguished history in the social sciences, its use in criminology is still relatively rare. Over the years, however, ethnographers in the United States and abroad have amassed an impressive body of work on core criminological topics and groups, including gang members, sex workers, drug dealers, and drug users. Ethnographies on criminal justice institutions have also flourished, with studies on police, courts, and prisons providing deep insights into how these organizations operate and shape the lives of people who encounter them. The Oxford Handbook of Ethnographies of Crime and Criminal Justice provides critical and current reviews of key research topics, issues, and debates that crime ethnographers have been grappling with for over a century. This volume brings together an outstanding group of ethnographers to discuss various research traditions, the ethical and pragmatic challenges associated with conducting crime-related fieldwork, relevant policy recommendations for practitioners in the field, and areas of future research for crime ethnographers. In addition to exhaustive overview essays, the handbook also presents case studies that serve as exemplars for how ethnographic inquiry can contribute to our understanding of crime and criminal justice-related topics.
