Description : Real Clear Politics’ in-depth account of the 2012 primary battles of the Republican Party and the look ahead to the race between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama With intimate access to the White House, GOP candidates, and their campaign staffs, Real Clear Politics is the latest in a series of e-originals written by veteran RCP journalists Tom Bevan and Carl Cannon. With up-to-the-minute newsbreaking material, Real Clear Politics gives an insider’s perspective on the many struggles the candidates had over the course of the primaries, including Romney’s inability to put away his competition; how Gingrich, a great counterpuncher in debates, ultimately was done in by an inability to defend himself; the unlikely success of Rick Santorum, who later became a lightning rod for critics over social issues; and the “kitchen sink” approach that Obama’s message team is adopting for attacking Romney. All of these key moments and issues, as well as a careful survey of the terrain ahead for the general election (the challenges and strategies for both candidates and the latest insights into Romney’s possible vice presidential nominee), are sure to make Real Clear Politics the must-read ebook for understanding the 2012 campaign.
Description : This beautiful four-color book opens the eyes of women to see themselves the way God sees them. Many don't even know that they are daughters of the King - chosen to be His Princess. Somewhere between childhood and adulthood, they trade in their fairy-tale dreams of being cherished for a tarnished identity fashioned by their own insecurities and the mixed-up messages of the media. Now, these tenderly adoring letters written from God's persepective demonstrate that every woman is beautiful just the way she is. Walking in confidence toward her God-given purpose, every woman can bless others - even future generations. It's hard to look at our lives and think of ourselves as royalty. But the truth is, God is our King and wer are chosen by Him. As your soul soaks in these love letters from your King, be affirmed of who you are, why you are here, and how much you are loved. For we are God's masterpiece. He has created us anew. Ephesians 2:10, NLT From the Hardcover edition.
Description : Ever paid attention to a picture of a caterpillar in a cocoon? Ever wondered what's going on inside as she's changing from a crawling, not so attractive creature to one that's beautiful and soars? I'll tell you what's happening? The same thing that occurs when God draws us into a lonely place of intimate isolation to prepare us for radical and life-transforming changes. The caterpillar's internal and external features are undergoing drastic changes. She loses everything that's no longer needed when she becomes a butterfly. Among many changes is the loss of her mouth and feet, while she gains more eyes. Hanging upside down in total surrender to the process; the old things are dying off to make room for the new. And so it is with you and me when God's about to transform us into the women we desire and were created to be. We must lose our mouth (not speak against what God is doing); our feet (remain in the process), and gain eyes to see things from God's perspective. The caterpillar's old cells represent our sin and unhealthy baggage that God must remove such as, bitterness, lack of self-worth, shame, pride, and unforgiveness. These must go to make room for what the butterfly needs to soar. We initially hate and even fight the process of retreating to our spiritual cocoon, only to find an intimacy, love, and power we never knew existed. Yes, God draws us into isolation, but once we stop kicking and screaming and surrender; we realize that we yearn to be with God as much as He desires to be with us. When God has His perfect way in the process, we emerge more powerful than we could have imagined, ready to pursue our God-given purpose and destiny.
Description : In this sumptuous group portrait of the six daughters of 'Mad' King George III, acclaimed biographer Flora Fraser takes us into the heart of the British Royal family during the tumultuous period of the American and French revolutions. Drawing on their extraordinary private correspondence, Fraser gives voice to these handsome, accomplished, extremely well-educated women: Princess Royal, the eldest, constantly at odds with her mother; home-loving, family-minded Augusta; plump Elizabeth, a gifted amateur artist; Mary the bland beauty of the family; Sophia, emotional and prone to take refuge in illness; and Amelia, 'the most turbulent and tempestuous of all the princesses.' Never before has the historical searchlight been turned with such sympathy and acuity on George III and his family.
