1 Ghost Boy - Martin Pistorius
Auteur : Martin Pistorius
Genre : Religion & Spirituality
They all thought he was gone. But he was alive and trapped inside his own body for ten years.

In January 1988 Martin Pistorius, aged twelve, fell inexplicably sick. First he lost his voice and stopped eating. Then he slept constantly and shunned human contact. Doctors were mystified. Within eighteen months he was mute and wheelchair-bound. Martin's parents were told an unknown degenerative disease left him with the mind of a baby and less than two years to live.

Martin was moved to care centers for severely disabled children. The stress and heartache shook his parents marriage and their family to the core. Their boy was gone. Or so they thought.

Ghost Boy is the heart-wrenching story of one boy's return to life through the power of love and faith. In these pages, readers see a parent's resilience, the consequences of misdiagnosis, abuse at t

7 Strength Training Capacity: An Individualized Guide to How Many Sets - Mark Sherwood
Auteur : Mark Sherwood
Genre : Sports & Outdoors
Most people understand that weight training workouts provide an effective way to get stronger, but they may be confused about whether their workouts should be long, short, or somewhere in between. This matter does not have to be a mystery. Finding your own workload capacity is the key. Once you learn how to do this, you can individualize the number of sets that you do to match your own workload capacity.

The subject of how many sets to perform is initially addressed in the book “Strength Training Thresholds,” however, it is discussed in greater detail in “Strength Training Capacity.” Diagnosing the right amount of sets for your workload capacity will insure that you don’t short circuit your efforts by under-training or over-training, instead, you will maximize your strength training efforts.

In addition to the basic information on how to find your workload

8 No Limits - John C. Maxwell
Auteur : John C. Maxwell
Genre : Management & Leadership
#1 New York Times bestselling author John C. Maxwell's latest book will enhance the lives of leaders, professionals, and anyone who wants to achieve success and personal growth.

We often treat the word capacity as if it were a natural law of limitation. Unfortunately, most of us are much more comfortable defining what we perceive as off limits rather than what's really possible. Could it be that many of us have failed to expand our potential because we have allowed what we perceive as capacity to define us? What if our limits are not really our limits?

In his newest book, John Maxwell identifies 17 core capacities. Some of these are abilities we all already possess, such as energy, creativity and leadership. Others are aspects of our lives controlled by our choices, like our attitudes, character, and intentionality. Maxwell exam

11 Healing Developmental Trauma - Laurence Heller Ph.D. & Aline Lapierre, Psy.D.
Auteur : Laurence Heller Ph.D. & Aline Lapierre, Psy.D.
Genre : Psychology
Written for those working to heal developmental trauma and seeking new tools for self-awareness and growth, this book focuses on conflicts surrounding the capacity for connection. Explaining that an impaired capacity for connection to self and to others and the ensuing diminished aliveness are the hidden dimensions that underlie most psychological and many physiological problems, clinicians Laurence Heller and Aline LaPierre introduce the NeuroAffective Relational Model® (NARM), a unified approach to developmental, attachment, and shock trauma that, while not ignoring a person’s past, emphasizes working in the present moment. NARM is a somatically based psychotherapy that helps bring into awareness the parts of self that are disorganized and dysfunctional without making the regressed, dysfunctional elements the primary theme of the therapy. It emphasizes a person’s str

Gaining
13 Gaining By Losing - J.D. Greear
Auteur : J.D. Greear
Genre : Christianity
People are leaving the church J.D. Greear pastors. Big givers. Key volunteers. Some of his best leaders and friends. And that’s exactly how he wants it to be.

When Jesus gave his disciples the Great Commission, he revealed that the key for reaching the world with the gospel is found in sending, not gathering. Though many churches focus time and energy on attracting people and counting numbers, the real mission of the church isn’t how many people you can gather. It’s about training up disciples and then sending them out. The true measure of success for a church should be its sending capacity, not its seating capacity.

But there is a cost to this. To see ministry multiply, we must release the seeds God has placed in our hands. And to do that, we must ask ourselves whether we are concerned more with building our kingdom or God’s.

As a respected family court judge, she’s spent her life making tough calls, but when her sixty-eight-year-old husband’s health worsens and Diane is forced to move him into an assisted living facility, it seems her world is spinning out of control.

As Gregory’s memory wavers and fades, Diane and her children must reexamine their connection to the man he once was—and learn to love the man he has become. For Diane’ daughter Lauren, it means honoring her father by following in his footsteps as a successful architect. For her son Sean, it means finding a way to repair the strained

Unlimiting
15 Unlimiting God - Richard Blackaby
Auteur : Richard Blackaby
Genre : Christianity
People have their limits. Some choose to ignore them.

God’s power and love have no limits. So why do Christians put limits on their relationship with Him? We could be pursuing greater knowledge, experiencing deeper intimacy, and abiding in freer joy… and yet we routinely settle for mediocrity in our spiritual lives.

But if you are ready to explode your self-imposed limits, Dr. Richard Blackaby can guide you through powerful and passionate insights revealed in this new book.

By contrasting mediocrity with the spirituality of the great “heroes of the faith,” Dr. Blackaby shows you that you need not settle for less than God intends for you. God can do extraordinary things through ordinary people like you…but only when you allow Him to enlarge your spiritual capacity and overcome your self-imposed limits.

19 Your Dog Is Your Mirror - Kevin Behan
Auteur : Kevin Behan
Genre : Pets
Even those dog lovers who feel that they understand their pets better than anyone else are sometimes bewildered by a mystery behavior or response. This, asserts Kevin Behan, is because our dog’s actions and attitudes are driven not by what we say or do but by what we feel. Two provocative conclusions follow from Behan’s argument: Because of unresolved emotions in our past, our dog may well know us better than we know ourselves. And because dogs know us “by heart,” they can help us connect with and heal our buried issues. Based on dogs evolving as cooperative group members, Behan’s approach offers practical ways to decode and change behaviors; and profound ways to learn from the mirror our dogs provide.

Your Dog Is Your Mirror is a very thought-provoking book that will force you to reconsider who we are and who dogs are and why we are so attracted to one an

28 Resilience Practice - Brian Walker & David Salt
Auteur : Brian Walker & David Salt
Genre : Nature
In 2006, Resilience Thinking addressed an essential question: As the natural systems that sustain us are subjected to shock after shock, how much can they take and still deliver the services we need from them? This idea caught the attention of both the scientific community and the general public.

In Resilience Practice, authors Brian Walker and David Salt take the notion of resilience one step further, applying resilience thinking to real-world situations and exploring how systems can be managed to promote and sustain resilience.

The book begins with an overview and introduction to resilience thinking and then takes the reader through the process of describing systems, assessing their resilience, and intervening as appropriate. Following each chapter is a case study of a different type of social-ecological system and how resilience makes a difference t

Building
29 Building Capacity - Sino Agueze
Auteur : Sino Agueze
Genre : Self-Improvement
Building Capacity demonstrates that God’s best plan and life’s best success for anyone depends on one’s capacity to create it. It shows that much depends on us (our capacity) and not on God — God can do no more and no less than the capacity we build. 

Creating capacity for life and success is both a personal
responsibility and a part of God’s immutable design. 

Many subscribe to an erroneous concept of the sovereignty of God, and as a result of this misconception, believe that their fate in life ultimately depends on God or some other higher power calling the shots — that everything in this life is “as is” because God has willed it so. What they fail to see is that God has placed all responsibility for life and success squarely on the shoulders of mankind, and that this assigned responsibility is a part of His divine pla

By laying out the most comprehensive model of APEST to date--one that incorporates deep theology as well as innovative practice--Hirsch once again demonstrates an almost uncanny capacity to change not only the nature of the conversation itself, but also the scorecard on how we understand calling, church, leadership, and organization.

32 Roosevelt and the Holocaust - Robert L. Beir & Brian Josepher
Auteur : Robert L. Beir & Brian Josepher
Genre : History
The year was 1932. At age fourteen Robert Beir’s journey through life changed irrevocably when a classmate called him a “dirty Jew.” Suddenly Beir encountered the belligerent poison of anti-Semitism. The safe confines of his upbringing had been violated. The pain that he felt at that moment was far more hurtful than any blow. Its memory would last a lifetime.

Beir’s experiences with anti-Semitism served as a microcosm for the anti-Semitism among the majority of Americans. That year, a politician named Franklin Delano Roosevelt ascended to the presidency. Over the next twelve years, he became a scion of optimism and carried a refreshing, unbridled confidence in a nation previously mired in fear and deeply depressed. His policies and ethics saved the capitalist system. His strong leadership and unwavering faith helped to defeat Hitler.

Auteur : Linda Lambert
Genre : Education
In this book, Linda Lambert takes a close look at leadership in schools, which today involves far more than a single leader. The author defines leadership as the learning processes among participants in a community--processes that lead toward a shared sense of purpose. Leadership capacity refers to the breadth of participation in leadership and the depth of skill that teachers, administrators, parents, students, and community members bring to the work. 

The stories of three schools--an elementary school with low leadership capacity, a middle school with moderate leadership capacity, and a high school with high leadership capacity--reveal how school people can lead their communities to improve student learning. The stories show five features of effective leadership: (1) broad-based, skillful participation in the work of leadership, (2) inquiry-based use of information to

Auteur : Kevin Zadai
Genre : Christianity
Master the Biblical art of receiving from Heaven.
 
Many Christians feel that their prayers produce no results, and that God remains distant, despite their pursuit of Him. Why? Because many are seeking blessings and realities that are already available and accessible!
 
The key to a fulfilling prayer life and an intimate relationship with God is not found in striving—it's found in simply receiving. In the Biblical art of receiving from Heaven, we simply say “yes” to the lavish blessings that Jesus has already made available to every believer.
 
Prophetic Bible teacher and bestselling author Kevin Zadai was an everyday Christian who was caught up in a heavenly encounter that dramatically changed his life. This experience opened the realities of Scripture to him in a new way, equipping him to share heavenly keys with ev

36 Self-Esteem Without Selfishness - Michel Esparza
Auteur : Michel Esparza
Genre : Christianity
We’ve all been exhorted to cultivate self-esteem and nurture a positive self-image. That sounds appealing. But we also know that God calls us to humility. And many well-intentioned Christians have it in the back of their minds that being humble means living their lives in a haze of discouragement, anxiety, and preoccupation with their own sinfulness. After all, the only alternative our culture seems to offer is a vacuous “I’m OK, you’re OK” relativism: the false peace that this world gives. We know that can’t be right. 

So how can we attain the peace God wants for us if we’re mired in self-contempt? How can we spread Christian joy if we don’t have any ourselves?

In Self-Esteem Without Selfishness, Fr. Michel Esparza leads the way out of this conundrum. A lively sense of a Father who looks on us with delight and unconditional love, toget

Skills for people to learn to be with themselves in the healthiest way possible.

Have you ever noticed how cruel and self-sabotaging your critical inner voice can be? Have you been looking outside of yourself for friends and loved ones to reassure you of your worthiness and lovability?

The latest developments in neuroscience unveil the amazing extent to which humans are wired for connection, belonging and resonance with other humans. This wiring for connection is so strong, our nervous systems have the capacity to become our own compassionate self-witnesses, even when we have not had access as children to stable loving presence and warmth. The field of neurobiology and the science of mindfulness reveal that the human brain is capable of being engaged in the experience of upset (fear, anxiety, depression) while simultaneously observing and holding ourselves with kin

46 Whither the Turkish Trading State? A Question of State Capacity - Mustafa Kutlay
Auteur : Mustafa Kutlay
Genre : Politics & Current Events
This brief investigates Turkish foreign economic policies with special reference to the post-Arab uprisings. Relying on the “trading state” framework, it offers a critical analysis as to whether the economic dimension of Turkey’s foreign policy proactivism actually functions as envisaged. It claims that substantial state capacity challenges undermine Turkey’s trading state potential. On the external side, the new regional security environment including the civil war in Syria and failed states in the Middle East and North Africa pose enormous challenges to utilize trade and investment as a practical hand in Turkish foreign policy. On the domestic side, Turkey is approaching the middle-income trap that puts the sustainability of its growth and export performance into jeopardy.

49 Capacity: Prerequisites for Meaningful Action on Climate Change - Carolyn Drugge
Auteur : Carolyn Drugge
Genre : Science & Nature
In Capacity, systems thinker Carolyn Drugge offers a new and hopeful approach to addressing climate change. Many have argued that new technologies and greater efficiencies will not adequately solve the problem of climate change but few offer actual ways forward. Capacity provides a framework for addressing the issue, not merely the symptoms.

In the space that exists between our desire for a better world and our ability to create it lies a set of under-valued capacities. The good news is that all of these essential capacities exist within each of us. We just need to strengthen them. Capacity takes us on a fascinating exploration of key human competencies that are fundamental to approaching our changing climate in a truly meaningful way. In easily accessible language, Drugge draws from cognitive science, systems design, and 15 years of exp
