In real life, I’d just say, ‘Put on your zoom lens, set your f-stop to f/2.8, focus on the flower, and fire away.’ That’s what this book is all about: you and I out shooting where I answer questions, give you advice, and share the secrets I’ve learned just like I would with a friend―without all the technical explanations and techie photo speak.”This isn’t a book of theory―full of confusing jargon and detailed concepts. This is a book on which button to push, which setting to use, and when to use it. With over 200 of the most closely guarded photographic “tricks of the trade,” this book gets you shooting dramatically better-looking, sharper, more colorful, more professional-looking photos every time.Each page covers a single concept that makes your photography better.

The Dyslexic AdvantageNew

Author: Brock & Fernette Eide

Publisher: N/A

Item #: A133

Did you know that many successful architects, lawyers, engineers—even bestselling novelists—had difficulties learning to read and write as children? In this groundbreaking book, Brock and Fernette Eide explain how 20% of people—individuals with dyslexia—share a unique learning style that can create advantages in a classroom, at a job, or at home. Using their combined expertise in neurology and education, the authors show how these individuals not only perceive the written word differently but may also excel at spatial reasoning, see insightful connections that others simply miss, understand the world in stories, and display amazing creativity.Blending personal stories with hard science, The Dyslexic Advantage provides invaluable advice on how parents, educators, and individuals with dyslexia can recognize and use the strengths of the dyslexic learning style in: -material reasoning (used by architects and engineers)-interconnected reasoning (scientists and designers)-narrative reasoning (novelists and lawyers)-dynamic reasoning (economists and entrepreneurs.)With prescriptive advice and inspiring testimonials, this paradigm-shifting book proves that dyslexia doesn’t have to be a detriment, but can often become an asset for success.

Nurturing Faith through feasting, one meal at a timeDays before converging on our home for a family gathering this summer, both of our sons called me.“Mama, I can hardly wait to get there.”“What is your favorite expectation about coming home?” I asked each of them.Both boys answered with almost the same words, even though they were now separated by two thousand miles: “It is the feasting every night around the table with delicious home-cooked food, being each other’s best friends, talking about every possible subject and sharing in each other’s lives . . . that is my favorite part. I need my people. I want a place to belong.”It’s no accident that they feel this way. Creating a lifegiving table in our home was a priority for me from the very beginning, and I put effort and intention into making it happen.In The Lifegiving Table, join me as I share the lessons my family and I cultivated carefully through years of sitting down together; cooking, baking, and preparing meals; and practicing the disciplines of teaching manners and fostering conversation.You’ll discover the legacy of creating a lifegiving table in your own home, as you knit your hearts together to form tight bonds that will not easily be broken.

This study series is designed to summarize the message of the Bible, encouraging middle and high school students to explore God's Word for themselves.
