Many women are wired to control. You’re the ones who make sure the house is clean, the meals are prepared, the beds are made, the children are dressed, and everyone gets to work, school, and other activities on time. But trying to control everything can be exhausting, and it can also cause friction with your friends and family. This humorous, yet thought-provoking book guides you as you discover for yourself the freedom and reward of living a life “out of control,” in which you allow God to be seated in the rightful place in your life. Armed with relevant biblical and current examples (both to emulate and to avoid), doable ideas, new thought patterns, and practical tools to implement, Let It Go will gently lead you out of the land of over-control and into a place of quiet trust. A companion video-based study for small groups is also available.

Release Date: 2008
Genre: Fiction

Lugubrious Nightsfollows the protagonist Tediato on his nightly visits to the temple where his beloved is interred. His ultimate intention is to disinter her body and kill himself in her presence. Tediato is a religious skeptic whose grief is cosmic, and he sees no reason not to join his beloved in death, torn as he is between the emptiness of his soul and the emptiness of the world. Hispanist Russell P. Sebold offers the first English translation of the eighteenth-century Spanish lyrical poem in prose by José de Cadalso (1741-1782). Inspired by his grief over the death of the actress María Ignacia Ibáñez, Cadalso composed Lugubrious Nights in 1771. Sebold considers it to be the first fully Romantic work of continental European literature, written three years before the publication of Goethe'sWerther.

Missionaries are taunted with it; investigators and recent converts are challenged with it; lifelong members are often puzzled with it-the charge that Mormons are not Christians.

The definitive work on the subject, this book is a must for every LDS home.

Properties of Modernity

Author: Michael P. Iarocci
Publisher: Vanderbilt University Press
ISBN: 0826515223
Release Date: 2006
Genre: Literary Criticism

Michael Iarocci traces the ways in which Spain went from being central to European history and identity during the early modern period to being marginalized and displaced by England, France, and Germany during the Romantic period. He points out that it has long been an unspoken assumption tainting much of literary criticism that Spain did not have a strong Romantic movement even though Spain itself had come to be viewed by the "new" Europe as the location of all that was romantic. Through a close study of Cadalso, Saavedra, and Larra, Iarocci argues that Spanish writers were intensely concerned with the same issues taken up by more famous Romantics and that the ways in which they address these issues provides us with a richer notion, not only of Spain, but of all of Europe.

The 8th Habit

Author: Stephen R. Covey
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
ISBN: 9781471128264
Release Date: 2013-01-08
Genre: Business & Economics

In the 7 Habits series, international bestselling author Stephen R. Covey showed us how to become as effective as it is possible to be. In his long-awaited new book, THE 8th HABIT, he opens up an entirely new dimension of human potential, and shows us how to achieve greatness in any position and any venue. All of us, Covey says, have within us the means for greatness. To tap into it is a matter of finding the right balance of four human attributes: talent, need, conscience and passion. At the nexus of these four attributes is what Covey calls voice - the unique, personal significance we each possess. Covey exhorts us all to move beyond effectiveness into the realm of greatness - and he shows us how to do so, by engaging our strengths and locating our powerful, individual voices. Why do we need this new habit? Because we have entered a new era in human history. The world is a profoundly different place than when THE 7 HABITS OF HIGHLY EFFECTIVE PEOPLE was originally published in 1989. The challenges and complexity we face today are of a different order of magnitude. We enjoy far greater autonomy in all areas of our lives, and along with this freedom comes the expectation that we will manage ourselves, instead of being managed by others. At the same time, we struggle to feel engaged, fulfilled and passionate. Tapping into the higher reaches of human genius and motivation to find our voice requires a new mindset, a new skill-set, a new tool-set - in short, a whole new habit.

A Comparative History of Literatures in the Iberian Peninsula

Author: César Domínguez
Publisher: John Benjamins Publishing Company
ISBN: 9789027266910
Release Date: 2016-10-15
Genre: Literary Criticism

Volume 2 of A Comparative History of Literatures in the Iberian Peninsula brings to an end this collective work that aims at surveying the network of interliterary relations in the Iberian Peninsula. No attempt at such a comparative history of literatures in the Iberian Peninsula has been made until now. In this volume, the focus is placed on images (Section 1), genres (Section 2), forms of mediation (Section 3), and cultural studies and literary repertoires (Section 4). To these four sections an epilogue is added, in which specialists in literatures in the Iberian Peninsula, as well as in the (sub)disciplines of comparative history and comparative literary history, search for links between Volumes 1 and 2 from the point of view of general contributions to the field of Iberian comparative studies, and assess the entire project that now reaches completion with contributions from almost one hundred scholars.
