In 1973, complications during Stephanie Torreno's birth resulted in the diagnosis of cerebral palsy at the age of one. Educating themselves about the condition, Stephanie's parents sought intensive physical, occupational, and speech therapy for their daughter. These therapies in early childhood and throughout school assisted Stephanie in learning to walk and speak while having limited mobility, significant challenges with fine motor skills, and articulation difficulties. Stephanie's narrative chronicles her experiences growing up with a physical disability and her parents' advocacy for her, an above-average student, in receiving a mainstreamed education. She describes learning alongside typical classmates without handwriting ability and benefitting from her parents' continuous fight for academic modifications and individualized services. In a deeply personal memoir, Stephanie writes about traumatic family events, including her father's suicide. She illustrates her pursuits to become more independent while coping with additional loss. Stephanie takes readers through her quest to obtain a college education, her attempts to gain meaningful employment, and her emotional journey to live independently.

Keeping Your Balance looks at the challenge that Christians face in maintaining a biblical balance in seven key areas of life.

These include the following: family and ministry; self-denial and liberty; patience and confrontation; the temporal and the eternal; the inner man and the outer man; reality and hope; and striving and trusting.

In each of these categories, the author first highlights the balance that is clearly set forth for the believer in Scripture. Second, a discussion is presented of the symptoms that may be manifested when an individual loses balance in a particular area. The practical life consequences of that imbalance are also examined. An understanding of these tensions is absolutely vital for living a life to the glory of God.

Pastors, church staff members, and dedicated volunteers are often disappointed to find that leadership in a local church can actually work against life balance and spiritual growth. Even so, there is a way to obtain a sense of well-being while continuing to be fully engaged in ministry.

Author, coach, and ordained minister Sharon L. Vandegrift draws on her experiences to show that there is more to church leadership than busyness. She focuses on seven main ideas to help you find renewed joy in serving the Lord: - Saying It Out Loud - Savoring - Breathing - Plugging Along - Clearing the Path - Making Friends - Building Bridges At the end of each section, Vandegrift offers reflection questions and a prayer to help you apply these strategies to your life. Designed as a resource, this handy guide will assist professional and volunteer leaders to live out their passion for church work while discovering ways to care for themselves, be intentional about life balance, and move forward on their faith journeys.

The study offers an ethnographically rich journey through the variety of healing methods in current Ayfat society: indigenous (obtained during female and male initiation rites), biomedical (the missionary hospital), and Christian (created by ritual healers since the coming of the missionaries). Likewise, the causes ascribed to illness range from sorcery, witchcraft, violation of ancestral or biblical rules, to biomedical conditions, a multiplicity of ways of understanding illness and healing that emerged in the context of religious change. Making choices among the variety of healing performances, and the creation of new performances, are shown to be dynamic processes. At the core are the innovative contributions of local healers, particularly women, who chose to create new performances in the face of religious change. Restoring the Balance looks at indigenous and Christian religious practices, and how people in northwest Ayfat have found a way to integrate the two and bring both sides into balance.
