Sooner or later, most teenagers go through the process of looking for their first job. If you are starting that journey, congratulations! Being employed is a new experience, and often very different from anything you've done before. It can be intimidating and confusing, but if you approach it with confidence and the right attitude, it will be one of the best and most memorable experiences of your life. One of the keys to confidence is knowing the facts and what to expect. The goal of this handbook is to give you the facts and understanding you need to approach your job search with confidence. It will give you several steps to follow to get a job. You don't have to follow all the steps - many people over the years have been hired without doing many of these things - but the more of these steps you follow, the more likely you will be to get the best possible job for you!
After working fourteen years as a successful criminal law attorney in Chicago, Kate Williams leaves her job looking for a more stress-free lifestyle. A recent vacation at an Arizona dude ranch entices her to the state, and she accepts a position as a deputy county attorney in Phoenix.
Within weeks of beginning her new position, Kate realizes that the Maricopa County Attorney's Office is not the employee haven she'd hoped it would be. Not only does her supervisor, County Attorney Stan Rantwist, claim he receives his orders from a higher power, but his sneaky assistant Alan White seems to have made it his life's work to spy on Kate's professional and personal activities. Worst of all, it looks like something illegal may be going on in the office. Kate enlists the help of her oddball assistants-the tattooed and pierced MJ Polowski and the germaphobic Marcus John Martinez-O'Reilly Ramirez, otherwise known as Sam-to help her investigate a series of grossly overcharged criminal cases.
When investigation of the improper charges leads Kate and her crew to the discovery of more serious, widespread corruption Kate faces the difficult decision of who to trust. Can she be sure that the handsome Deputy Sheriff Bryan Turner is on her side when he offers to assist? One misstep and it could be more than her career at stake.
This workbook on the book of Job was designed for use in Bible classes, family study, or personal study. The class book material is suitable for teens and adults. Questions in the lessons contain minimal human commentary, but instead guide students to study to understand Scripture. Enough questions are included for teachers to assign as many questions as they want for each study session. The course assignments may proceed at whatever speed and depth will best accomplish the needs of the students.
Pre-teens and teens often hit a point in their walk with God where they start asking the "tough" questions. One thing parents and teachers often do is tr to answer all their questions and guide them intellectually. While this is helpful for some, most young teens just need to connect with God. They need the answers straight from Him. By developing their own prayer life, praying the scriptures on topics that are applicable to the deep issues of their soul, God fills their heart as only He can. These topics on identity in Christ were chosen through prayer specifically for pre-teens and teenagers. The journaling guide directs teens to read, write, and pray the verses. The back section of the book is a journaling area for them to draw and write what is in their heart and mind as they are absorbing the scriptures. Through the reading and hearing of the Word, faith is built up. When the voices and messages of the world around us seem so loud, we need faith to believe God's Word is true, and what He says about us, is the real truth. As a parent or leader, you should be able to see a progression in how they view their identity in God the more they spend in the Word and journaling what God is saying to them.
..".Jesus said, "If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." (NIV John 8:31-32) The teaching is the teaching presented to Nicodemus (and the woman at the well). Many, like Nicodemus, had "heard of" the truth, but few if any had "seen" it. "Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at my saying, 'You must be born again.' The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit." At the same time, in keeping with Job's erstwhile friends, Nicodemus asked, "How can this be?" (NIV John 3:5-9) This study and commentary on the book of Job, situates Job at the core of authentic and radical Christian experience, which has God and nothing other than God. The book of Job is amongst the old texts of scripture. From the book, we can know that, unlike his friends, Job know God but not clearly. We learn that despite his friends, Job came to a clear knowledge of God. Long after it was first written, Christ provided a rationale for the book of Job. Within this framework, the book of Job is sensible and intelligible. Reading, studying and understanding the book of Job through the lens of the book of John, the authenticated letters of Paul, and Spinoza's work are all in concert with the book of Job and what it is about. In the amalgam everything is changed. The distilled view is radical. The book of Job is a testament of our being able to 'see' or directly and immediately experience God, God's essence and the things of God. At the same time, the book of Job radically debunks anthropomorphism as an acceptable alternative to personally experiencing and knowing God directly and immediately. This reading, studying and understanding suits a 21st century Radical Christian grasp of God and Christ after the spirit, in keeping with the trends of the radical Protestantism for example that of the 16th and 17th centuries.
