Why should anyone think of fighting battles in the area of marriage?...Is there anything spiritual about marriage?...Is marriage not a mere union between a man and a woman? Good questions! Marriage is more than a union. There is more that meets the eye when a man who comes from his own background decides to be joined in wedlock with a lady who comes from another background. Beloved, your marriage rises or falls on your ancestry. Unknown to many people, the extent they will go in the area of marriage has been predetermined by their ancestors. And no matter what you have achieved today, there was a day when you came to this world as a helpless infant. Though your navel, which today, has been separated from your umbilical cord may be seen as an ordinary part of the body. It should actually remind you that it was formerly the rope that tied you to your parents and by extension, your ancestors who lived hundreds of years ago. This is a deep spiritual understanding you must not ignore. Just as there is no human being without a navel, there is no man or a woman who was not formerly linked to his or her parents through the umbilical cord.

YOUR MIN1STRY AND YOUR ANCESTRY The battles of life are common to all and sundry, therefore the fact that you are a minister does not erase your ancestral roots. To this end, many pastors, ministers and church leaders are ignorant of the impact ancestral factors have on the lives of men and women of Cod. A lot of ministers who have failed in the ministry could not really understand the reason(s) behind their failures. Some are even blinded to the fact that they have battles to fight. These battles are deeply entrenched in the foundations of many ministers of the gospel and if something is not done urgently, many more will die miserably without fulfillingtheir destinies. While the battles and challenges faced by those who are not ministers are ordinary, the battles faced by ministers are complicated and advanced in nature. This book exposes you to those battles, how to tackle them and it explains what you need to do to deal with them and be permanently free from them. Be blessed on this journey of discovery and recovery.

A recent Maritz Poll reported that 60% of Americans are interested in their family history. And with good reason. Through genealogy, you can go back into history to meet people who have had more influence on your life than any others -- your ancestors. And the better you get to know your ancestors, the better you will get to know yourself: the who's and what's and why's of you. Barbara Renick, a nationally-known lecturer on genealogy, tells the uninitiated researcher the steps needed to find out who their ancestors really were, and brings together for even the more experienced genealogical researchers the important principles and practices. She covers such topics as the importance of staying organized and how to go about it; where and how to look for information in libraries, historical societies, and on the internet; recognizing that just because something is in print doesn't mean it's right; and how to prepare to visit the home where your ancestors lived. Genealogy 101 is the first book to read when you want to discover who your ancestors were, where they lived, and what they did.

An acclaimed journalist travels the globe to solve the mystery of her ancestry, confronting the question at the heart of the American experience of immigration, race, and identity: Who are my people? “A thoughtful, beautiful meditation on what makes us who we are . . . and the values and ideals that bind us together as Americans.”—Barack Obama “A rich and revealing memoir . . . Futureface raises urgent questions having to do with history and complicity.”—The New York Times Alex Wagner has always been fascinated by stories of exile and migration. Her father’s ancestors immigrated to the United States from Ireland and Luxembourg. Her mother fled Rangoon in the 1960s, escaping Burma’s military dictatorship. In her professional life, Wagner reported from the Arizona-Mexico border, where agents, drones, cameras, and military hardware guarded the line between two nations. She listened to debates about whether the United States should be a melting pot or a salad bowl. She knew that moving from one land to another—and the accompanying recombination of individual and tribal identities—was the story of America. And she was happy that her own mixed-race ancestry and late twentieth-century education had taught her that identity is mutable and meaningless, a thing we make rather than a thing we are. When a cousin’s offhand comment threw a mystery into her personal story–introducing the possibility of an exciting new twist in her already complex family history—Wagner was suddenly awakened to her own deep hunger to be something, to belong, to have an identity that mattered, a tribe of her own. Intoxicated by the possibility, she became determined to investigate her genealogy. So she set off on a quest to find the truth about her family history. The journey takes Wagner from Burma to Luxembourg, from ruined colonial capitals with records written on banana leaves to Mormon databases and high-tech genetic labs. As she gets closer to solving the mystery of her own ancestry, she begins to grapple with a deeper question: Does it matter? Is our enduring obsession with blood and land, race and identity, worth all the trouble it’s caused us? The answers can be found in this deeply personal account of her search for belonging, a meditation on the things that define us as insiders and outsiders and make us think in terms of “us” and “them.” In this time of conflict over who we are as a country, when so much emphasis is placed on ethnic, religious, and national divisions, Futureface constructs a narrative where we all belong.
