Until Expectations May You Part Giddy with excitement and burning with love’s fire, engaged couples are filled with desires and expectations! Wonder and eager anticipation propel them forward. Then comes the marriage and if they take the wrong approach, those unrealized expectations and unmet wants can turn a life-giving covenant relationship into a dead-end contractual agreement. Suddenly your marriage has no love, joy, or peace. In this marriage-makeover DVD and study guide from Northpoint Resources, Andy Stanley ’s three key teachings help you transform your expectations and examine the “I’s” of marriage: “Keeping My ‘I’ On You,” “Putting Your ‘I’ Out,” and “It Takes Three.” Broken into six DVD sessions with discussion questions, this is one lesson your marriage won’t survive without. Until Expectations Do Us Part Standing at the altar we all had a picture of what our marriage would look like. The problem is this picture of marriage ends up as expectations that we unload on our spouse. The weight of these expectations will rob your marriage of love and joy. As a spouse you never feel like you measure up and you never feel like you are good enough. So what are you to do with your expectations? You can’t deny them because most expectations started out as God-given desires. In this six-session companion study guide to the DVD, Andy Stanley explains that you must instead learn to transform your expectations and look to God if you are to experience marriage as it was designed. This study guide is complete with a leader’s guide and six lessons including conversation-starting exercises, discussion questions and application steps. Story Behind the Book Andy Stanley is the senior pastor of three North Point Ministries campuses, with a cumulative congregation of more than twenty thousand. As couples voiced their various marital struggles to him, the common root problem became undeniably clear. The “me” syndrome, or the “I” effect, was tearing apart husbands and wives who were once head-over-heels in love. To help couples step back from their immediate circumstances and realize the bigger picture, he preached a series called “iMarriage.” This DVD and study guide will empower couples everywhere to transform their marriages into the one God intends for them.

Did you know that spiritual, emotional, physical, and relational exhaustion lead to anger? And unresolved anger leads to sin. All couples deal with anger and how they respond (stuff it, spew it, or study it), can make all the difference in their relationship and in their lives. In From Anger to Intimacy, Gary Smalley and Ted Cunningham explore this often maligned and God-given emotion that, unless dealt with, can strip us of everything we love. Now couples can learn the skills to: -resolve conflict, hurt, and pain in a healthy way -master their internal buttons so as to overcome feelings of anger, frustration, and rage -use five specific tactics to deal with anger and rage when they rear their ugly heads -walk in the freedom God intends by learning the three essentials of forgiveness and five keys to nurturing a forgiving spirit -craft the perfect apology -remove the roadblocks to forgiveness once and for all -break sexual addiction and heal after an affair -and find answers to big questions about anger and forgiveness in their marriage

Have you ever wondered whether your marriage could have an impact beyond yourself and your immediate family? This question became embedded in our minds after listening to a talk by Gary Thomas (author of Sacred Marriage & A Lifelong Love), on a Christian radio channel where he asked listeners to ponder the question of whether God created marriage for our holiness rather than for our happiness. The idea for this marriage programme was therefore birthed from pondering the question: ‘What if...’

"How do I relate to a God who is invisible when I’m never quite sure he’s there?"--Philip YanceyLife with God doesn’t always work like we thought. High expectations slam against the reality of personal weaknesses and unwelcome surprises. And the God who we’ve been told longs for our company may seem remote, emotionally unavailable.

Dovetailing with Philip Yancey’s book Reaching for the Invisible God, the twelve sessions are your opportunity to journey toward insights that affirm and dignify your most pressing questions--even the ones you may have found it hard to ask. Get ready to experience the challenges and rewards of relating to God as he is, not as you’ve thought he is. Yancey shifts your focus from questions to the One who offers himself in answer: the God who invites you to reach for him--and find.Includes:* Bible readings * Discussion questions* Personal reflections and applications* Tips for group leaders* Summary excerpts from Reaching for the Invisible God

Carpe Diem was written to transform student attitudes about their studies from those of "hourly workers" sitting in lectures and dutifully taking notes to an attitude which reflects student ownership of their education. The motivation for this book comes from compelling evidence that being an active rather than a passive learner will make a significant difference in life's successes. This book emphasizes that acquiring factual information is critically important, but knowing facts is not enough. Successful people must also acquire broad skills including writing, speaking, interpersonal skills, initiative, time management, assertiveness and reasoning ability. The specific teaching and learning techniques discussed include the discussion method, computer assisted instruction, laboratory instruction, simulation, the case method, intensive reading and writing, student journals, and cooperative learning including student affairs activities. Carpe Diem also provides the rationale for these learning techiques. In addition, it helps students develop a personal plan and connects that plan with active learning outcomes. Finally, the book offers appendices on the relevance of specific general education subjects and on how to choose a college that supports active learning.

What makes a teacher outstanding? More than anything, it's a way of being with kids in the classroom that lets them know they're smart and capable of high achievement. When you combine this mind-set with effective instruction, teaching and learning are transformed. In Teaching Essentials, Regie Routman gives us as much of a blueprint for achieving this powerful, responsive teaching as we're ever going to get. Drawing on her extensive work with students who have excelled against great odds, Regie shares the principles and practices that help all students and teachers reach their full potential. Teaching Essentials shows teachers and principals how to build an efficient and joyful practice by: setting lessons and activities in a meaningful context using an Optimal Learning Model to organize teaching and gradually release responsibility to students demonstrating reading, writing, and thinking for students so they have explicit models to follow articulating high expectations for every student, including ELLs and struggling learners, and ensuring that they meet them embedding assessment into all aspects of instruction and planning employing the reading-writing connection to improve comprehension motivating writers by always writing for real audiences and purposes implementing a schoolwide coaching model for higher achievement and a more fulfilling collaboration with colleagues. A companion website, www.regieroutman.com, provides additional information, including a downloadable, easy-to-use study guide to promote professional conversations and video clips of Regie teaching so you can view and review the language and routines behind engaging, responsive instruction and learning. The Teaching Essentials book and website are ideal for individual, whole school, and districtwide professional development.
