Rebuilding Your Life Suffering for the Glory Key Word Search and Scripture References Table for 1, Please In the book Box of Chocolates there are recommended key words to search scriptures for God's promises for our lives. The Original Lost Boy The Warrior Mom Handbook Betrayal - Psalm 41:9 ~ Even my close friend, whom I trusted, he who shared my bread, has What to Do, After You Say I Do lifted up his heel against me. Corporate Books Revenge - Matthew 10:16 ~ I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as Cost Optimization shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves. Software Testing Trumped The book Box of Chocolates contains 365 scenarios that are based on real life events. Stop, Kneel, & Pray by Nicole Smith Stop, Drop, & Roll is a simple fire safety technique taught to children, emergency services personnel and industrial workers as a component of health and safety training. Primarily, it is a method to extinguish a fire on a person's clothes or hair without, or in addition to, the use of conventional firefighting equipment. In addition to extinguishing the fire, stop, drop and roll is an effective psychological tool, providing those in a fire situation, particularly children, with a routine that can be used to focus on in order to avoid panic. How is it that we can embed a simple term into billions of people and whenever our life is on fire we forget to Stop, Kneel, & Pray? Yet for your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered. Psalm 44:22 Stop, Kneel, & Pray consists of three components: 1. Stop - The sheep must cease movement to take a stand against the enemy attacks. 2. Kneel - The sheep must 'drop' to the ground, kneeling while head is bowed and eyes closed to avoid distractions. 3. Pray - The sheep must pray to the King of Kings and believe the prayer has been answered. The effectiveness of stop, kneel & pray may be further enhanced by combining it with other firefighting techniques, including the use of the Holy Bible, faith, and praise. There is a Way Lyrics to There is a Way by NewWorldSon You say love is just a word, just four letters in a row. Just a thing that people say, or they never tell you so. And you use every excuse, to let nobody in. Now this cloud you bring around, has become your only friend. And everybody saying that it's going to go away, But it dont go. And everybody's telling you one day it's going to change, But you don't know. If it's really going to end. But there is a way, There is a spark, There is a hope that you can hold on to. There is a life line come to the rescue, Just like a hand that's waiting for you. 2 of 4 6/15/2010 8:23 PM

And if you beleive in this I promise that you won't be alone. There is a way, the truth, and the life, and the way. What if love became a man, If the word had flesh and bone. Would you recognize his face, If he came to bring you home? You think you're all alone, Gotta do it on your own riding solo. Is there someone you can call when you stumble and fall? Cause you don't know, If you'll be getting up again. But there is a way, There is a spark, There is a hope that you can hold on to. There is a life line come to the rescue, Just like a hand that's waiting for you. And if you beleive in this I promise that you won't be alone. There is a way, the truth, and the life, and the way. Don't you think your life's worth saving? Don't you know that love's amazing? Don't you want to lay your troubles down? Lay them down. If I thought love was just a word, I might feel the same way too. But there's so much more than that, And it's waiting here for you. Listen to the song on Email of the Year Nominee for Email of the Year - Author Unknown After being interviewed by the school administration, the prospective teacher said: Let me see if I've got this right. You want me to go into that room with all those kids, correct their disruptive behavior, observe them for signs of abuse, monitor their dress habits, censor their T-shirt messages, and instill in them a love for learning. You want me to check their backpacks for weapons, wage war on drugs and sexually transmitted diseases, and raise their sense of self esteem and personal pride... You want me to teach them patriotism and good citizenship, sportsmanship and fair play, and how to register to vote, balance a checkbook, and apply for a job. You want me to check their heads for lice, recognize signs of antisocial behavior, and make sure that they all pass the final exams. You also want me to provide them with an equal education regardless of their handicaps, and communicate regularly with their parents in English, Spanish or any other language, by letter, telephone, newsletter, and report card. You want me to do all this with a piece of chalk, a blackboard, a bulletin board, a few books, a big smile, and a starting salary that qualifies me for food stamps. You want me to do all this and then you tell me .... I CAN'T PRAY? What's Your Story? Writers have an opportunity to preserve their thoughts, experiences, creativity, and most importantly faith in print, as well as other forms of media. We all have a story to tell for others to receive encouragement, inspiration, education, entertainment, and more. Writing is a way the the author and the readers connect with each other over a message. If a book's message is strong enough and is shared by many, it can create change. 3 of 4 6/15/2010 8:23 PM
