Growing up is a whole lot easier if you have some idea what to expect. This book describes exactly what will happen to your body in a straightforward, easy-to-understand way, and it explains some of your feelings too - all you need to know for this important time in your life. "Look no further: the What's Happening to Me? Books are nothing short of brilliant. They aim to help children aged nine and above understand bodily changes and they do this extremely well.Susan Meredith answers the questions young girls want to ask but might feel afraid to. It's all there: getting measured up for a bra, periods, using towels and tampons, feeling, diet, health and hygiene and there is also a section on what happens to boys.The text is informal, chatty, full of useful facts and packed with considerate advice and support. A book like that wouldn't work as well without graphics and diagrams, and the illustrations are colourful and engaging as well as informative." - John Dabell, TES Magazine

Gender and Genre in the Folklore of Middle India

In Gender and Genre in the Folklore of Middle India, Joyce Burkhalter Flueckiger analyzes six representative Indian folklore genres from a single regional repertoire to show the influence of their intertextual relations on the composition and interpretation of artistic performance. Placing special emphasis on women’s rituals, she looks at the relationship between the framework and organization of indigenous genres and the reception of folklore performance. The regional repertoire under examination presents a strikingly female-centered world. Female performers and characters are active, articulate, and frequently challenge or defy expectations of gender. Men also confound traditional gender roles. Flueckiger includes the translations of two full performance texts of narratives sung by female and male storytellers respectively.

How can you talk about something that you can't remember? Before the ski trip, Cassidy "Sid" Murphy was a cheerleader (on the bottom of the pyramid, but still...) and a straight-A student, with two of the best friends a girl could ask for. When Sid finds herself on a ski lift with hunky local college guy, Dax Windsor, she's thrilled. "Come to a party with me," he tells her, but Dax isn't what he seems. He takes everything from Sid-including a lock of her perfect red curls-and she can't remember any of it. After the ski trip, Sid is an insomniac and an obsessive late-night runner, unable to relate to her old friends. Caught in a downward spiral, Sid drops her college prep classes and takes up residence in the A/V room with only Corey "The Living Stoner" Livingston for company. But as she gets to know Corey--slacker, baker, total dreamboat--Sid finds someone who truly makes her happy. Now, if only she could shake the nightmares, everything would be perfect... Witty and poignant, Colleen Clayton's debut is a stunning story of moving on after the unthinkable happens.

INTRODUCTION We have been focusing on and dealing with spiritual illnesses and issues that can sometimes hinder the progress of our walk with the Lord. These illnesses have been compared to the sicknesses that affect the natural body, which causes so many breakdowns, until the body is unable to perform at the maximum level. Now let us see the benefits of a spiritually fit you and what can really happen to an individual when the spirit man is up and running at the maximum level in all areas. What happens when my mind is 100 percent pure, my heart is free of clots and clutter, my mouth and tongue are in control, my eyes are at 20/20 visual acuity, and the rest of my spiritual health is where the Lord needs me to be operating? What things will I be able to perform and what changes will happen in the body of Christ when I am focusing, obeying, walking, speaking, and loving with a spiritually fit me? If I am spiritually fit and walking totally in the authority of the Holy Spirit with the anointing of the Lord's approval in my life, a positive change has to happen to the body of Christ. You see, spiritual fitness is a must if the church is to move and shift toward being ready for the Great Return of the Lord. Are we, the church, spiritually fit and ready for that great day? We can be! Can I pull off the old me and put on the new me operating in the call and the charge that our Lord and Savior has given his life for my expected end? Can I actively rise up and walk in the new birth that has been freely given to me? Yes, I can

“Jesus! Have mercy on me!” The blind beggar cried out these words to Jesus over two thousand years ago. And what did Jesus do? He healed the beggar’s blindness! We may not all be physically blind, but we all are born spiritually blind. God does not want us to be in this state, and he offers to us a solution: grace, mercy, and salvation that will open our eyes to the truth of the world and ourselves. We cannot be healed from our “blindness” without the loving touch of Jesus. He longs to put His hand on our “eyes” and say, “Your faith has made you well.” He cannot do this, though, unless you are willing to surrender to Him. As the beautiful song, “Amazing Grace” says, “I once was lost, but now I’m found. Was blind, but now I see.” Are you willing to cry out, “Jesus! Have mercy on me”?
