Do you want a great marriage? Most people do. Yet, few people have great marriages, in large part because it is so easy to settle for the mundane in marriage. God did not intend for marriage to be boring and ordinary. In Tools for a Great Marriage, marriage and family life educator, William Batson, uses expert wisdom and practical common sense to show how several indispensable marital tools can help any couple build a satisfying, fun, loving, and lasting marriage. Couples will learn how to: turn their bad talk into love talk; make their personality differences work for them; practice the Principle of Satisfaction; in their sex life; defeat the enemy of every marriage selfishness; turn stormy times into opportunities to love each other more; keep conflicts from turning into nasty, knockdown, drag-out fights. Tools for a Great Marriage gives you the blueprint for building your marriage on God's principles in a format that is simple, clear, practical, and easy to apply. At the end of each chapter there is a section called Tool Time for Couples containing follow-up questions which set the stage for great couple times together. A resource section in the back of the book includes additional tools for maintaining a great marriage.

Every year, 6 million companies and more than 100,000 products are launched. They all need an awesome name, but many (such as Xobni, Svbtle, and Doostang) look like the results of a drunken Scrabble game. In this entertaining and engaging book, ace naming consultant Alexandra Watkins explains how anyone—even noncreative types—can create memorable and buzz-worthy brand names. No degree in linguistics required. The heart of the book is Watkins's proven SMILE and SCRATCH Test—two acronyms for what makes or breaks a name. She also provides up-to-date advice, like how to make sure that Siri spells your name correctly and how to nab an available domain name. And you'll see dozens of examples—the good, the bad, and the “so bad she gave them an award.” Alexandra Watkins is not afraid to name names.

Author: Ellen Arnold
Publisher: Chicago Review Press
Elementary educators learn to recognize how students learn bestand adjust their lesson plans accordinglywith this handbook's Multiple Intelligence (MI)based strategies. Starting with a diagnostic interview for each child that helps teachers develop the best instructional methods for their classrooms, this guide provides hundreds of specific teaching methods that strengthen each of the eight intelligences in any classroom situation. Case studies from actual strength-based assessments (one for each of the eight intelligences) outline examples for how these strategies can be applied at any grade level to improve such skills as reading, writing, spelling, math, note taking, and listening, as well as to minimize behavior problems. In this updated edition, 50 specific strength-based interventions that range from vocabulary retention and reading comprehension to self-discipline and task completion show how each of the eight intelligences can be utilized in the teaching of a single lesson. A selection of grade-specific content includes using MI theory to teach story writing, singing, and democracy."
