Through stories, ideas and techniques, it explores how to quiet our minds and open our hearts so we can truly belong to ourselves and to life. Mary O'Malley writes from her own personal experience of awakening, having walked through the darkest of times, transmuting pain and wounding into precious treasure.

Is there anything more elegant than a wedding? Candles bathe a chapel in gold. Families fill the pews. Groomsmen and bridesmaids descend the aisles with bouquets of newness. And the groom stands at the front, longing for that moment his bride will appear and step toward him to start their new life together. In Ephesians, Paul reminds us that Jesus is also longing for the day he will be united with the church—his bride in all her beauty. Paul’s letter celebrates the beauty of the church and gives us wonderful examples and overviews of a Christian life. Paul shows us how to walk worthy of Christ as we live our life for God. His focus on the beauty of the church reminds us that through salvation we become a part of God’s family: a place where we can experience true belonging. The Life Lessons with Max Lucado series brings the Bible to life in twelve lessons filled with intriguing questions, inspirational stories, and poignant reflections to take you deeper into God’s Word. Each lesson includes an opening reflection, background information, an excerpt of the text (from the New International and New King James versions), exploration questions, inspirational thoughts from Max, and a closing takeaway for further reflection. The Life Lessons series is ideal for use in both a small-group setting or for individual study.

Specters of Belonging

Drawing on his experiences leading citizenship classes for Mexican migrants and working with cross-border activists, Adrián Félix examines the political lives (and deaths) of Mexican migrants in Specters of Belonging.

As the United States hardens its border with Mexico, how do migrants make transnational claims of citizenship in both nation-states? By enacting citizenship in both countries, Mexican migrants are challenging the meaning of membership and belonging from the margins of both citizenship regimes. With their incessant border-shattering political practices, Mexican migrants have become the embodiment of transnational citizenship on both sides of the divide. Drawing on his experiences leading citizenship classes for Mexican migrants and working with cross-border activists, Adrián Félix examines the political lives (and deaths) of Mexican migrants in Specters of Belonging. Tracing transnationalism across the different stages of the migrant political life cycle - beginning with the so-called political baptism of naturalization and ending with the practice by which migrant bodies are repatriated to Mexico for burial after death - Félix reveals the varied ways in which Mexican transnational subjects practice citizenship in the United States as well as Mexico. As such, Félix unearths how Mexican migrants' specters of belonging perennially haunt the political projects of nationalism, citizenship, and democracy on both sides of the border.

Lived Citizenship on the Edge of Society

This edited collection presents the concept of lived citizenship as a fruitful avenue for exploring the role played by social work practices in the lives of people in vulnerable positions.

This edited collection presents the concept of lived citizenship as a fruitful avenue for exploring the role played by social work practices in the lives of people in vulnerable positions. The book centres on the everyday experiences through which people practice, negotiate, understand and feel their citizenship. The authors offer both empirical analyses of how social work influences the rights, obligations, identities and belongings of children, homeless people, migrants, ethnic minorities, and young people with mental disabilities; and a theoretical framework for analysing the complexities of social work. Drawing on the notion of intimate citizenship and an understanding of citizenship as socio-spatial, the theoretical framework addresses the challenges of enhancing the agency of social work clients and of promoting inclusive citizenship, and how these challenges are shaped by emotions, affect, rationality, materiality, power relations, policies and managerial strategies. Lived Citizenship on the Edge of Society will be of interest to students and scholars across a range of disciplines including social policy and social work.

An in-depth look at the role of media in the struggle for transgender inclusion From television shows like Orange is the New Black and Transparent, to the real-life struggles of Caitlyn Jenner splashed across the headlines, transgender visibility is on the rise. But what was it like to live as a transgender person in a media environment before this transgender boom in television? While pop culture imaginations of transgender identity flourish and shape audience’s perceptions of trans identities, what does this new media visibility mean for transgender individuals themselves? Struggling for Ordinary engagingly answers these questions, offering a snapshot of how transgender individuals made their way toward a sense of ordinary life by integrating available media into their everyday experiences. Drawing on in-depth interviews with transgender communities, Andre Cavalcante offers a richly detailed account of how the media impacts the lives and experiences of transgender individuals. He grippingly looks at the emotional toll that media takes on this population along with their resilience in the face of disempowerment. Deeply rooted in the life stories of transgender people, the book uses everyday circumstances to show how media and technology operate as a medium through which transgender individuals are able to cultivate an understanding of their identities, build inhabitable worlds, and achieve the routine affordances of everyday life from which they are often excluded. Expertly researched and eloquently argued, Struggling for Ordinary sheds a fascinating new light of the everyday struggles of individuals and communities, to seek a life in which transgender identity is fully integrated into the ordinary.

The Nature of Belonging

That is the point of the book: to share in real stories the Roudette compassion for life, for nature, for people who can become open to others. These essays are the testimony of an urgent, loving spirit.

Vonnie Roudette has created a seminal work of Caribbean Nature writings revealing creative messages for community transformation through daily observation. Compiled largely from five-minute weekly radio commentaries that were aired in St. Vincent and the Grenadines on the WEFM Radio Viewpoint program between June 2004-June 2009, The Nature of Belonging is a Collection of Short Essays that are beautifully interspersed with Roudette’s poetic drawings and meditations on Nature. Through The Nature of Belonging, Roudette seeks to facilitate personal healing from social and cultural programming through the practical application of resilient natural wisdom that nurtures cooperative relationships within our personal and working lives, community and natural environment. “There is a dialogue in these pages between two or more ways of thinking. That is the point of the book: to share in real stories the Roudette compassion for life, for nature, for people who can become open to others. These essays are the testimony of an urgent, loving spirit.” - Oscar Allen, author, social commentator. “It requires a great combination of skills to produce a work of such range of themes and quality of perception. Be the subject Vincentian architecture, carnival, the role of the landscape in shaping consciousness, Caribbean regional cuisine and the art of healthy living: Ms. Roudette’s meditations provide us with a manual of instruction for teachers and learners with an interest in the art of seeing and listening. This translation of weekly broadcasts on St. Vincent and the Grenadines radio into an anthology of essays bears the mark of editorial distinction which could only have been achieved by a creative teacher for whom “there is great satisfaction in being able to step back and see something not only continue but continue to grow.” -George Lamming, scholar, author, critic.

Spaces of Belonging

The book concludes by addressing the underlying thesis that contemporary life writing might provide just the 'postmodern maps' that could help not only literary scholars, but also geographers, better understand the world today.

Questions of space, place and identity have become increasingly prominent throughout the arts and humanities in recent times. This study begins by investigating the reasons for this growth in interest and analyses the underlying assumptions on which interdisciplinary discussions about space are often based. After tracing back the history of contact between Geography and Literary Studies from both disciplinary perspectives, it goes on to discuss recent academic work in the field and seeks to forge a new conceptual framework through which contemporary discussions of space and literature can operate. Having argued that the experience of contemporary space has rendered questions of home and belonging particularly pressing, it undertakes detailed analysis of how these phenomena are articulated in a selection of recent French life writing texts. Home is shown to be a deeply problematic, yet strongly desired, element of the contemporary world. The book concludes by addressing the underlying thesis that contemporary life writing might provide just the 'postmodern maps' that could help not only literary scholars, but also geographers, better understand the world today.

"To arrive at the last past page of a book and realize you are finding a beginning is a special gift. This work of poetry took me on a remarkable journey with the author, as she navigated life with a fierceness and honesty that challenges the reader to do as well. Reading the timeline of such a personal journey told through poetry gives a uniquely refreshing voice and pace to the journey of becoming, being, and belonging. I recommend this poetry treasure for other seekers of an authentic life." - Barbara T. "Beautifully written poetry of a woman's journey to freedom, wholeness, spirituality and ultimately, to herself. Helps us all touch these deep longings within ourselves." - Natalie Matushenko, life coach This is how you belong. When you truly love yourself from your own inner being, magical things happen, as Eva Live discovered in her quest to unlock her real self and finally come alive. Though she'd always wanted to live a meaningful life, at the end of her marriage, Eva felt more lost than she'd ever been. It had been years since she had left behind her evangelical Christian religion with all its certainty about the answers to the big life questions: Who am I? Why am I here? What is my life for? And how do I receive love without losing the essence of my own being? Through allowing these questions without needing to be sure of the answers, through staring trauma in the eyes, through sitting with depression, and later through dancing in joy, Eva found her path back to life. In this powerful memoir, told in poetry and narrative, Eva shares the story of how she came to belong. "Eva Live's poetry book is a courageous journey toward essence, searingly honest, detailing profound healing and connection as well as moments of deep despair and loneliness. She is a passionate explorer of the human condition-our uniqueness and our unity, our separateness and our oneness." - James DeLong, Lecturer Emeritus, University of Washington School of Social Work "The poetry in Eva's book is raw, compelling, and moving. . . . I was utterly fascinated and totally absorbed as I read through the pages. Eva's account of how she discovered and unpeeled layers of disconnect and vulnerabilities in so many facets of her life showed so much inner strength and the will and freedom to love herself. It was both a trigger and a reminder for me to love myself better and dig deep within to listen to the calling of my soul." - Carol Chapman, blogger and podcaster "As a lover of deep and meaningful memoirs, I was excited to read this book. I was captured by the poetry and appreciated the guiding backdrops offered along the way. Its raw, insightful, and sometimes edgy prose painted a beautiful picture of Eva's courageous journey that most anyone can relate to if they are participating in their life. Helpful and motivating, I recommend that everyone read this book while putting their own stamp of understanding on its unusual take on awakening to one's true self." - Gina Diamond, M.Ed., Author: Survival Strategies for Parents with Picky Eaters
