"If I can save one woman from these thighs, I will not have lived in vain," #1 New York Times bestselling humorist Jill Conner Browne writes in American Thighs, her handbook and memoir for the Hot and Flashy. Whether young enough to look "hot" or of the age to only feel that way (in flashes with buckets of sweat), every woman has given, or will give, ample thought to preserving her best "assets" (thighs included), so that the dread transition from "cute girl" to "ma'am" won't be quite so unsettling. Here are stories of growing up and learning about life -- usually the hard way! From disastrous haircuts and color jobs to fashion or verbal faux pas committed, from the kiss wished for but never gotten to the one that should have been skipped, these are the moments that mark each of our journeys from what we thought back then to what we now know. Since to say that Youth is wasted on the Young has got to be the understatement of all time, it falls upon Browne, as one older and wiser, to take a "Hit and Run" down Memory Lane for the sake of offering "Asset-Preserving Tips," with astonishing disclosures about: Why women have risked their lives just to get a little bit blonder How the muumuu has been fashionably resurrected as the "patio dress" Why it's important to always have a good photo of yourself on hand -- just in case How, no matter what skin you're in, to make it last a lifetime Why you can never trust anyone over eighty-five
Get ready for a "Church Shift" through praying in the Spirit and thinking ecumenically, looking at key elements that unite the Church. Spirit Baptism shows how to achieve true spiritual power and genuine Church unity that transcend all barriers. Spirit baptism fulfills the hunger for the vertical relationship with God while the horizontal connection throughout the universal body of Christ is accessed through an ecumenical focus. The resulting "matrix" is reverberating worldwide. Understanding Pentecostal theology is pivotal in realizing this inter-connectedness. Dr. Verna Linzey aptly provides outstanding tools for understanding Spirit baptism. "Verna M. Linzey's book, Spirit Baptism, is a restatement of classic Pentecostal convictions on baptism in the Spirit and speaking in tongues, with the same ingenuousness and fervour which lit the flame of Pentecostalism one hundred years ago." - James Dunn "In Spirit Baptism, Verna Linzey has given this generation a fresh new look at the Pentecostal experience as experienced by millions of people worldwide in the last century." - Vinson Synan "This wonderful masterpiece deals extensively . . . with the person and ministry of the Holy Spirit." - Samhwan Kim Dr. Verna Linzey hosts "The Holy Spirit Today" television and radio broadcasts. Dr. Linzey is Chairman of the Advisory Board of the Verna Linzey Child Care Ministry based in the Philippines. In 2006, on the 100th anniversary of the Azusa Street Revival, Dr. Linzey was awarded the 2005 Best Non-Fiction of the Year Award by the San Diego Christian Writer's Guild for writing The Baptism with the Holy Spirit. Dr. Linzey matriculated at Southwestern Assemblies of God University, attended Church Growth Seminars in the Doctor of Ministry Program at Fuller Theological Seminary as a special guest, and received an Honorary Doctor of Divinity degree at Kingsway Theological Seminary.
