As with her last book, Courageous Virtue is filled with scriptural teaching and the words of the saints, carefully laying a path to the virtues for all readers. Stacy's insightful study questions lead readers to carefully examine their lives in light of the virtues, and the book includes a leader's guide for group Bible studies.

  • Genre : Body, Mind & Spirit
  • Modern physics tells us that we’re dreaming the world into being with every thought. Courageous Dreaming tells us how to dream our world with power and grace. The ancient shamans of the Americas understood that we’re not only creating our experience of the world, but are dreaming up the very nature of reality itself—that is, "life is but a dream." When you don’t dream your life, you have to settle for the nightmare being dreamed by others. This book shows how to wake up from the collective nightmare and begin to dream a life of courage and grace, a sacred dream that shamans throughout time have known and served.Alberto Villoldo reveals ancient wisdom teachings that explain how to birth reality from the invisible matrix of creation; and reveals how we can interact with this matrix to dream a life of peace, health, and abundance. He shows us that courage is all that is required to create the joy we desire!

    Christians Courageous
  • Author : Aloysius Roche
  • Publisher : Sophia Institute Press
  • Pages : 181
  • ISBN : 9781933184548
  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Biography & Autobiography
  • For every half-dozen heroes antiquity could muster, Christendom produced thousands; and often from the strangest holes and corners. Instead of drying up the spirit of adventure, the Fire of Pentecost kindled it anew and made it burn with an unquenchable flame. The Master's parting instructions to His followers resulted in a host of enterprises quite as daring as any to be found in Homer. Some of these are brought vividly to life in these stories about courageous Christians from the earliest days of Christianity to modern times. Although written primarily for youthful readers, they are sure to interest all those to whom the achievements of their fellow Christians are a matter of pride and encouragement. Here you'll read about, among others: The pagan actor whose mockery of the Faith led him to convert and even die a Christian martyr The blind boy who became an adviser to great saints The brave bishop who successfully defended the true Faith — against his fellow bishops and even the Emperor! The monk who was martyred in the Coliseum trying to stop the bloodshed of the gladiators there The priest who suffered cruel deprivations to convert a savage tribe — with a dictionary! The Irish monk who crossed the Sea of Darkness to discover America The celebrated Spanish novelist who helped save Christendom from the Turks at the Battle of Lepanto The unarmed bishop who, with words alone, drove Attila the Hun from the gates of Rome The stirring adventures of these brave Christian souls remind us that God has in hand for each of us a unique mission, worthy of all our imagination and of all our daring.

    The Courageous State
  • Author : Richard Murphy
  • Publisher : N.a
  • Pages : 317
  • ISBN : 1907720286
  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Economic policy
  • In The Courageous State, Richard Murphy argues that neoliberalism has bred weak governments led by weak politicians who believe implicitly in the supremacy of the market. It has created a cowardly state: a state that sees responsibility and then runs away from it. Worse, the weak politicians who run our cowardly state want power solely to ensure that as much tax revenue as possible is used to benefit the private sector that they idolise. But neoliberal theory is wrong - it has created the crises we're suffering. And it has no solution to them. The Courageous State argues powerfully for a new economic model. That model is based on a very different idea of what the role of the state is. The Courageous State is driven by its desire to work on behalf of the people of this country. And that means a Courageous State is populated by politicians who believe in government and in the power of the office they hold. They believe that office exists for the sake of the public good. They know what that public good is. They think it is their job to help each and every person in their country to achieve their potential, sustainably, in a strong mixed economy. And they believe they can command the resources to fulfil this task - whether through tax or other means. A Courageous State offers hope; our existing, cowardly, state does not. Which is why building a Courageous State is essential if we want to both solve our current problems and build a sustainable future. The question is, are you willing to be that Courageous? "Since the 2008 crash conventional economists have run out of ideas. But Richard Murphy abounds with them. He writes with electric clarity about what went wrong and what could be done to put things right. He is a new economic thinker, no mere theoretician but guided by a sharp and practical accountant's eye. He knows where the money is hidden, who has it and how to release it. Murphy is the closest thing to a one-man think tank and he is as courageous as he says our politicians should be." Polly Toynbee, The Guardian newspaper columnist and economics commentator "Rich individuals, corporations, well-funded special interest groups and much of Fleet Street is on one (the wrong) side and then there is Richard Murphy.. . the heroic figure. Tireless and forensic, driven by an admirable moral fervour, I take my hat off to a campaigner with Duracell batteries." Kevin Maguire, Sunday Mirror

    Excellence Through Equity

  • Publisher : ASCD
  • Pages : 332
  • ISBN : 9781416622505
  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Education
  • Excellence Through Equity is an inspiring look at how real-world educators are creating schools where all students are able to thrive. In these schools, educators understand that equity is not about treating all children the same. They are deeply committed to ensuring that each student receives what he or she individually needs to develop their full potential—and succeed. To help educators with what can at times be a difficult and challenging journey, Blankstein and Noguera frame the book with five guiding principles of Courageous Leadership: - Getting to your core - Making organizational meaning - Ensuring constancy and consistency of purpose - Facing the facts and your fears - Building sustainable relationships They further emphasize that the practices are grounded in three important areas of research that are too often disregarded: (1) child development, (2) neuroscience, and (3) environmental influences on child development and learning. You’ll hear from Carol Corbett Burris, Michael Fullan, Marcus J. Newsome, Paul Reville, Susan Szachowicz, and other bold practitioners and visionary thinkers who share compelling and actionable ideas, strategies, and experiences for closing the achievement gap in your classrooms and school. Ensuring that all students receive an education that cultivates their talents and potential is in all our common interest. As Andy Hargreaves writes in the coda: “The opportunity for all Americans is to articulate and believe in an inspiring vision of educational change that is about what the next genera¬tion of America and Americans should become, not about a target or ranking that the nation should attain.”

    Captains Courageous
  • Author : Rudyard Kipling
  • Publisher : Bantam Classics
  • Pages : 178
  • ISBN : 9780553211900
  • Reader Reviews : 18
  • Genre : Fiction
  • The only one of Kipling's novels to be cast in an American setting, Captains Courageous endures as one of literature's most cherished and memorable sea adventures. Harvey Cheyne, spoiled millionaire's son, tumbles overboard from a luxury liner--only to be rescued by the crew of a Gloucester schooner. Thus begins the boy's second voyage into the rugged rites and ways of sailors. Like all Kipling's masterworks, Captains Courageous is an interweaving of art and moral purpose. Angus Wilson has said that it shows "delicacy of craft and violence of feeling, exactitude and wile impressionism, subtlety and true innocence." A popular favorite since its first publication in 1897, the novel remains a classic story of youthful initiation--and a lively tribute to the author's famous code of bravery, loyalty, and honor among men.

Net Positive boldly argues that the companies of the future will profit by fixing the world's problems, not creating them. Together the authors explode our most prevalent corporate myths: from the idea that business' only function is to maximise profits, to the naïve hope that Corporate Social Responsibility will save our species from disaster. These approaches, they argue, are destined for the graveyard. Instead, they show corporate leaders how to make their companies "Net Positive"—thriving by giving back more to the world than they take. Net Positive companies unleash innovation, build trust, attract the best people, thrill customers, and secure lasting success, all by helping create stronger, more inclusive societies and a healthier planet. Heal the world first, they argue, and you’ll satisfy your investors as a result. With ambitious vision and compelling stories, Net Positive will teach you how to find the inner purpose and courage you need to embrace the only business model that will matter in the years ahead. You will learn how to lead others and unlock your company's soul, while setting and delivering big and aggressive goals, and taking responsibility for all of your company's impacts. You'll find out the secrets to partnering with others, including your competition and critics, to drive transformative change from which you will prosper. You'll build a company that serves your people, your customers, your communities, your shareholders—and your children and grandchildren will thank you for it. Is this win-win for business and humanity too good to be true? Don't believe it. The world's smartest CEOs are already taking their companies on the Net Positive journey and benefitting as a result.

  • Growing a Courageous Heart is a Christ-centered curriculum for women in recovery for all types of eating disorders. It provides clear definitions of eating disorders and explores the physical damage they cause, their protective denial systems, their root causes, and their cognitive processes. It also explores, emotional, relational and spiritual damage caused by eating disorders and provides practical tools for overcoming them. The curriculum could be used in support groups or in one-one therapy sessions. Even those who struggle with disordered eating patterns and body image problems would also benefit from studying this material. This curriculum will help eating disorder survivors grow in their relationship with God and with others as they courageously face fears concerning food, relationships, life, and body image. It'll help remove the shame of having eating disorders as women learn to depend on God for healing in this area of their lives. "Growing a Courageous Heart is packed with incredible material to assist those suffering with disordered eating. Wendy addresses the physical, emotional, cognitive, and spiritual struggles that people face daily. While Growing a Courageous Heart is user friendly, it addresses the deeper complexities unique to eating disorders. Many of my clients have successfully worked through the book, some individually and others in a group setting. I highly recommend Wendy's book for those needing help to overcome disordered eating patterns." Nancy Keller, MFT "Wendy Mahill has created another great tool for healing. Just like Growing A Passionate Heart for sexual abuse, Growing A Courageous Heart for eating disorders is thorough, grace-filled, and a giant step on the road to healing and living free." Steve Arterburn Founder and Chairman of New Life Ministries Founder of the Women of Faith(R) Conferences

Aiden is the son of a fisherman on the south coast of England, and he's feared the ocean since his oldest brother's ship was sunk by a German U-boat. But that doesn't matter when he and his best friend Sally hear chatter on their radio. Allied troops, including Aiden's surviving brother, are trapped in France, surrounded by German forces. The British military have come up with a daring plan to save as many troops as possible, bringing them across the Channel to safety -- but they'll need every boat they can get their hands on. Aiden's parents forbid him from going, but he and Sally know they can help, and set off to join Operation Dynamo on their own. It's a harrowing journey, and the pair are in grave danger as they help ferry troops from Dunkirk, searching for Aiden's brother all the while. It will take an entire village for them to realize that as long as people are willing to help those who need it, there's hope for a brighter tomorrow.

  • Captains Courageous is an 1897 novel, by Rudyard Kipling, that follows the adventures of fifteen-year-old Harvey Cheyne Jr., the spoiled son of a railroad tycoon, after he is saved from drowning by a Portuguese fisherman in the north Atlantic. The novel originally appeared as a serialisation in McClure's, beginning with the November 1896 edition. In 1900, in his essay "What We Can Expect of the American Boy," Teddy Roosevelt extolled the book and praised Kipling for describing "in the liveliest way just what a boy should be and do." The book's title comes from the ballad Mary Ambree, which starts, "When captains courageous, whom death could not daunt." Kipling had previously used the same title for an article on businessmen as the new adventurers, published in The Times of 23 November 1892.

  • Overcome fear and adversity in the workplace—with courage! Courage is the first virtue of leadership success. Leaders require courage to make bold decisions even when there are dissenters, to say what needs to be said no matter the consequences, and to place their trust in those they manage. Yet surprisingly, despite the central role that courage plays in leadership success, until now there have been few training programs devoted solely to building courage in the workplace. The Courageous Leadership workshop introduces a new organizational development practice called courage-building. As a new professional discipline, courage-building is predicated on the assumption that people perform better when they are behaving courageously than when they are anxious and afraid. To be a courage-builder, however, you have to role model courageous behavior. This workshop is designed to help you do just that. The objectives of this workshop are to: Learn about the three different types of courage and when (and how) to use each Gain insight into your own "courage history" so that you can use your past to strengthen your future Understand the impact that fear has on personal and organizational performance Learn about two distinct ways of leading, and approaches for inspiring more courageous behavior among the people with whom you work Identify specific actions for extending the value of the workshop so that you can continue benefiting from it going forward Become a courageous leader By learning to apply the strategies and approaches that are introduced in the Courageous Leadership workshop, and then applying them in your workplace, you will help people step up to challenges more readily, embrace change more fully, and speak up more assertively. When you put your courage to work, and when you step past the threshold of your zone of comfort, the entire workplace benefits.
