Appendix: Organizations Supporting Women
Starred Review. New York Times columnist Kristof and his wife, WuDunn, a former Times reporter, make a brilliantly argued case for investing in the health and autonomy of women worldwide. More girls have been killed in the last fifty years, precisely because they were girls, than men were killed in all the wars of the twentieth century, they write, detailing the rampant gendercide in the developing world, particularly in India and Pakistan. Far from merely making moral appeals, the authors posit that it is impossible for countries to climb out of poverty if only a fraction of women (9% in Pakistan, for example) participate in the labor force. China’s meteoric rise was due to women’s economic empowerment: 80% of the factory workers in the Guangdong province are female; six of the 10 richest self-made women in the world are Chinese. The authors reveal local women to be the most effective change agents: The best role for Americans… isn’t holding the microphone at the front of the rally but writing the checks, an assertion they contradict in their unnecessary profiles of American volunteers finding compensations for the lack of shopping malls and Netflix movies in making a difference abroad.

Mothers And Daughters Of The Bible Speak$26.99Add to cart
God always keeps His promises, but not always in the way we expect….
“Have faith” is a phrase we hear all the time. But what does it actually look like to live it out? In The Mothers and Daughters of the Bible Speak, Shannon Bream examines the lives of biblical women to see how God’s plans can turn our worlds upside down. She tells the story of Jochebed, a mother who took enormous risks to protect her son, Moses, from Pharaoh. Could Jochebed have imagined that God’s actual design for her son involved flight into exile and danger? And yet this was all part of the master plan to deliver Israel from slavery. Another biblical mother, Rebekah, made terrible choices in an attempt to ensure her son’s place in history. And a daughter, Michal, struggled to keep her faithless father, Saul, from sin, while battling pride in herself.
Through these stories, Shannon explains the intimate connection between faith and family–and how God’s unexpected agenda can redefine the way we think about family. Not all of these mothers and daughters in the Bible were paragons of virtue. Like us, they were human beings who faltered and struggled to do their best. While some heard God’s voice, others chose their own paths. Through the lens of their imperfections, we can see how God used their stories to bring about His divine plans. He’s still doing the same work in our lives today.
The Mothers and Daughters of the Bible Speak shows that faith is more often a twisting road than a straight line. Yet, as the stories of biblical families attest, at the end of these journeys lies greater peace and joy than we could ever imagine.
Wonder Switch : The Difference Between Limiting Your Life And Living Your D$25.99Add to cart
Reclaim your wonder, reshape your life.
We are all born with the wonder switch in the “on” position, but somewhere along the way, our wonder was crushed. When wonder dies, we begin believing the messages telling us to grow up and get in line. In other words, we were made for wonder, but it’s been educated right out of our souls.
Yet reclaiming your wonder–and with it, your life–is within your reach. In The Wonder Switch, join professional illusionist Harris III in a journey to bring you back to magic–not the stuff of sleight of hand that he performs across world stages, but real magic: love, hope, joy, belonging, meaning, and purpose.
Cynicism is the force that actively shuts down all of these things. But wonder is the key that unlocks your permission to believe again. The secret to a vibrant life is found in reawakening your childlike wonder, helping you to stop misusing your imagination to worry, and get back to dreaming, innovating, and creating the life you were actually meant to live.
In this book, you’ll discover:
*The surprising science behind the stories we tell ourselves and how they shape our lives
*How to identify what’s crushing your wonder
*Practices for getting curious and dreaming again
*How to create better internal drama that energizes rather than drains us
*The tools you need to redesign your life
*Why worry is a misuse of your imagination, and how to kick the habit
The beginning of everything you want, Harris writes, is on the other side of this switch.
