A magic melody and unforgettable lyrics can instantly transform and transport us, if only for a moment. Now two of the most beloved contemporary songs, "Thank You for Being a Friend" and "We Are Family," join with oh-so-memorable animal close-ups to capture this magic in an even more palpable form. Thank You for Being a Friend and We Are Family, presented as gift book-audio CD packages by PQ Publishers, feature wonderful animal images by some of the world's most renowned nature photographers, including Steve Bloom. The two universal themes-family and friends-couldn't be conveyed and honored more effectively than they are in these heartwarming presentations. Each package includes a top quality audio CD featuring the original song recording by the original musical artist. Andrew Gold delivers his familiar rendition of "Thank You for Being a Friend," was also known as the theme song from the hit sitcom, The Golden Girls. And Sister Sledge's lively vocals are unmistakable in the feel-good anthem, "We Are Family." Both artists evoke exactly the right sentiments when paired with Steve Bloom's almost human photos of bears, penguins, monkeys, and other wild animals at their playful best.

“Zanily inventive . . . This deeply eccentric comedy belongs in the company of the best novels about wildly precocious kids” (The Seattle Times). Al Santamaria is a child prodigy, maybe a genius. It is not out of the realm of possibility that he, alone, will save the human race. But first, he has to solve a far more urgent problem: finding a home for his family. He exists, like many kids, in a realm located somewhere between reality and fantasy, enjoying time with imaginary friends and wielding his magical powers. He has a wonderful relationship with his father, Mario Elvis, and his mother, Agnese, and he’s convinced he has the best family in the world. But life isn’t all roses for the Santamaria family. They are typical of many Italian families today, whose existences seem suspended between conflicting impulses: on the one hand, delusions of grandeur and immoderate ambition, and on the other nostalgia for a past golden age and the secret wish that somebody, anybody, will come to their rescue. Big dreams, it appears, exist to be crushed. But Al is not about to give up. He lives in a marvelous world of his own. He has the energy, imagination, and unselfconscious talents of a child. And, although he doesn’t know it yet, he is going to remain a child his entire life. “An extended, guffaw-inducing, and sometimes tragic trip through Al’s young life. It reads like an Italian sitcom.” —Foreword Reviews “An amazing novel: it’ll move you and make you laugh.” —Elle “A plot shot through with the richness of Italian comedy and bright irony.” —La Repubblica

Friendships between humans and non-human animals were once dismissed as sentimental anthropomorphism. After decades of research on the emotional and cognitive capacities of animals, we now recognize human–animal friendships as true reciprocal relationships. Friendships with animals have many of the same characteristics as friendships between humans. Both parties enjoy the shared presence that friendship entails along with the pleasures that come with knowing another being. Both friends develop ways of communicating apart from, or in addition to, spoken language.

Title: INITIATING A LEGACY OF POEMS WAS DESIGNED TO: Provide a written record of my life- transforming decisions and experiences for my descendants. It is something that I wished had been available for me to assist in my positive self-development as a young man. Record the lessons on life learned from my father and his father to be passed down to future generations. To serve as a guide and template for others who desires to reflect upon their relationships and experiences. Encourage other men in refining and expanding their sense of purpose and destiny. Serve as an example to many of my cultural and spiritual brothers of the importance of recording a written legacy. Legacy Journal of Personal Transformation is an open-ended work of poems and other literature that will be used in the context of speaking with my offspring and their progeny to fill in the dash between the date on which I was born and the date on which I physically depart this dear earth. It is my intention to continue to record my personal lifes journey, the significant events in my life and the decisions that resulted. May my vulnerability expressed in these writings assist my heirs and others in becoming more aware of the presence, plans, power and purpose of God. May they treasure the blessings of many past generations who have prayed for them and labored knowing that they would never see this day. 1. Proverbs 13:22 A good man leaves an inheritance for his children's children, but a sinner's wealth is stored up for the righteous.

A slave runs away from his master. A mutual friend steps in to mediate between the two of them. Can there be healing in such a scarred relationship? In the face of such a daunting breach, is reconciliation (not to what was, but to what God designed) even possible? This is the situation faced in the book of Philemon. From this short New Testament letter, pastor and author Dhati Lewis (Among Wolves) unpacks key principles that Paul applied to being an advocate in the midst of division. The divisions of our day don’t look the same as Paul’s, but the principles are timeless. In 2 Corinthians 5, God commissioned us to be his ambassadors and gave us the ministry of reconciliation. Whether we’re engaging in issues of politics, ethnicity, or religious beliefs, our heart posture should be one of an advocate set on reconciliation. The problem is, too many of us approach difficult conversations with the heart of an aggravator. Aggravators sometimes look like they are pursuing good things, but their heart is not toward reconciliation. Any motive less than reconciliation falls short of the desires of God’s heart. We need godly advocates in every sphere of life. This book will specifically apply these principles to issues of ethnic division. Are you willing to call any division caused by discrimination, prejudice, or racism a sin? Do you want to grow in your ability to navigate tense and emotional conversations about ethnic divisions? Are you ready to become an advocate?

Small churches need the work of all of their people to survive, and this means that there's a productive place in the church family for every person, no matter how gifted or challenged. Small churches are uniquely personal, and they provide an unparalleled opportunity for Christians to learn, grow, and live out their faith consciously, every day. Small churches become a family, children of God, and brothers and sisters of Jesus together. There's no place to hide in a small church. The normal human dramas of good and evil, sin and repentance, forgiveness and reconciliation all happen in our relationships in the family. A small church is a place where people can serve an apprenticeship in faith, learning from those before them and passing on their experience to those around them. In a small church the pastor provides context by preaching and teaching, serves as a role model in encouraging the ministry of others, and, by loving the people, helps them see themselves through God's eyes. The rest is up to the people themselves and to God.
