Women are he product of divine design, the exquisite creation tha God fashioned with careful, meticulous, and loving care. Understanding how and why God created woman enables both women and men to recognize the rightful contributions that God designed women to make for the welfare of humanity. Despite millennia of misguided efforts by men to control and dominate them, women were originally designed by God to be coequal with men and to have complete freedom to use any gift and to fulfill any role that he has given to them. That design is still God's ideal for the God-fashioned woman, and includes the following subjects: Designed to Be Feminine, Designed for Beauty, Designed for Purity and Modesty, Designed for Sexual Fulfillment, Designed for Nurture and Relationship, Designed for Freedom. Whatever your race, ethnicity, gender, faith, or social status, this book and the other volumes in this series will literally set you free from misconceptions that have restricted the roles of women. As you are reconnected with the Hebraic foundations of your faith, you will clearly understand God's original design and purpose for women, and you will begin to help remove obstacles that have kept women from assuming their God-given roles in the family, in society, and especially in the community of faith.

Soon to be a major film starring Julia Roberts, Owen Wilson and Jacob Tremblay. 'My name is August. I won't describe what I look like. Whatever you're thinking, it's probably worse.' Auggie wants to be an ordinary ten-year-old. He does ordinary things - eating ice cream, playing on his Xbox. He feels ordinary - inside. But ordinary kids don't make other ordinary kids run away screaming in playgrounds. Ordinary kids aren't stared at wherever they go. Born with a terrible facial abnormality, Auggie has been home-schooled by his parents his whole life. Now, for the first time, he's being sent to a real school - and he's dreading it. All he wants is to be accepted - but can he convince his new classmates that he's just like them, underneath it all? WONDER is a funny, frank, astonishingly moving debut to read in one sitting, pass on to others, and remember long after the final page.

There is no lack of books for Orthodox Jews on the laws of family purity, and there is no lack of secular sex manuals, yet there has never been a book that attempted to be a sexualmanual for Orthodox Jews. Until now. The new book Et Le'ehov: The Newlywed's Guide to Physical Intimacy is groundbreaking as it is the first book to offer guidance and advice on marital intimacy for Orthodox Jewish couples. The book is uniquely targeted to Orthodox newlyweds in several ways: Language used is designed to be sensitive--it is a accurate without being offensive and it is sensitive to the Orthodox community. Special "Question and Answer" sections: address common concerns faced by newlywed Orthodox couples. The range of sexual activities included is limited to those which are broadly sanctioned by halachah (JewishLaw). Specially commissioned illustrations were designed to be sensitive to the Orthodox young couple: only those pictures which are helpful to learning about sexual function are included.
