Discover Adam, Eve, Paul, and many other biblical characters as they interact with Jesus on his way to the cross. King Jehovah, the king of Heaven, rules the land with a loving heart and just judgment. One day, he decides to ask his people to venture over to the land known as Earth where the people are enduring plenty of modern-day issues. When they get there, they find that a factory owner, Joe Bedinger, has just watched his business go up in flames; Eve is unemployed and desperately searching for somewhere to work; and Adam is stuck in his dead-end grocery store job, cleaning up after other peoples messes and stocking shelves. Jehovah comes up with a plan to heal the land of earth and give these people additional resources and citizenship of his kingdom of heaven, but its not all that easy as he finds his own subjects oppose his plan. Jehovah sends his son as an ambassador to the people. Is that enough for the people of Earth and Heaven to live in peace? Or is there a war on the horizon?
Using conversations, observations, and reflections, psychologist Kopano Ratele meditates on love, violence and masculinity This book seeks to imagine the possibility of a more loving masculinity in a society where structural violence, failures of government and economic inequality underpin much of the violent behavior that men display. Enriched with personal reflections on his own experiences as a partner, father, psychologist and researcher in the field of men and masculinities, Why Men Hurt Women and Other Reflections on Love, Violence and Masculinity is Kopano Ratele’s meditation on love and violence, and the way these forces shape the emotional lives of boys and men. At the core of these critical and deeply insightful texts is the question of why men hurt women they love. Ratele contends that many men in our society suffer from a painful, unrecognized, yet consequential love hunger that sets in during boyhood. This need for love may lie at the root of some of the male violence that damages the lives of women, children and men themselves. Blending academic analysis and rigor in a readable narrative style, Ratele illuminates the complex nuances of gender, intimacy and power in the context of the human need for love and care. While unsparing in his analysis of men’s inner lives, Ratele lays out a path for addressing the hunger for love in boys and men. He argues that just as the beliefs and practices relating to gender, sexuality and the nature of love are constantly being challenged and revised, so our ideas about masculinity, and men’s and boys’ capacity to show genuine loving care for each other and for women, can evolve.
"My Grace is sufficient for you, for my power is perfected in weakness" 2Corinthians 12:9 I was born on an indian reserve called Akwesasne in upstate ny. My reserve is unique in that it straddles the american, ontario and quebec borders. I was raised in an abusive alcoholic home. I ran away the day i turned 16 to escape the abuse and a friend of mine and myself hitchhiked to texas. After i came back from there i was on my own. I got into trouble alot and my alcohol and drug addiction was already a problem. Because of the border situation on the reserve there was always smuggling goin on. I ended up supporting myself nicely and got dragged into the fast easy money of that life.Living that lifestyle was as addicting as the drugs..The rush of getting away with it and the money was intoxicating. It never really filled the emptiness i always felt. The feeling of not being loved or being damaged never went away no matter how much drugs i did..As the years went on and i went through relationship after relationship my addiction turned to crack and there was no stopping me . I lost my children and my soul to that drug and lifestyle.. This i my story of how i finally found the strength in my weakest moment and began on this new journey .Ive survived my whole life and its only now that i have begun to live. I am learning from my past, doing the best i can today and i have hope today. I love myself and am truely grateful to be alive today.

Why Does Love Hurt So Good? It’s hard to explain why we stay with someone who isn’t treating or loving them the way they should. Staying, some would say is foolish, unhealthy and not normal, and they’re right, but for you to understand the why, you must experience loving someone first hand because until you do, you have no idea the power that love has over many of us. Within these stories, you will read and experience what people will do to have someone love them. Sex, lies, deception, betrayal, abuse, and infidelity were just a few of the traits used to obtain what they thought would make them happy in their relationship. As you read, you will, at some point, have to rethink what you thought you knew about love because, contrary to what many think and believe, not all love is good love that we receive from those we love.
