Good life to Hood life. Born with a platinum spoon in her mouth thanks to her drug-dealing parents, Fancy is a young, spoiled princess. But when havoc enters the picture and the Feds seize her family's ill-gotten gains, Fancy's lavish Caribbean trips are traded in for cold winter nights in the heart of the hood. When the gravity of Fancy's situation causes her to crumble, it's her roots that put her back together. Unwilling to stay down, Fancy realizes that she was born to hustle, and this American Gangstress is reborn. What emerges is a fierce contender the streets aren't ready for.

“Ensuring the full participation of women and girls is the great unfinished business of the twenty-first century. The stories in this book of people making a difference give me hope. We can use our power and purpose to help all women. And once we do, we can fast-forward to a better world for all.” — from the foreword by Hillary Rodham Clinton

“[Fast Forward] outlines a female power action plan: how to find yours and use it while supporting other women . . . The book is full of compelling studies and stats.” — Elle

Books like Sheryl Sandberg’s Lean In have helped advance a conversation about women and their careers that has resonated with millions of readers. Fast Forward, by two women leaders whose experience spans corporate America, public service, and global diplomacy, takes the next step. Through interviews with a network of more than seventy trailblazing women, Fast Forward shows women how to accelerate their growing economic power and combine it with purpose to find both success and meaning in their lives.

Companies, countries, and organizations the world over are waking up to today’s new reality. Women control the lion’s share of purchasing power and are increasingly essential to competitiveness. Women are using their power for purpose, redefining what power and success mean in the process. Through clear, practical advice and personal stories of women around the world — including Hillary Clinton, Geena Davis, Christine Lagarde, and Diane von Furstenberg — Fast Forward shows every woman how to know her power, find her purpose, and connect with others to achieve her life’s goals.
“A durable contribution to the continued efforts to effect change for women.” — Kirkus Reviews

Christian, do you know that you are the pure, righteous, and holy bride of Christ, and your Spiritual Bridegroom only has eyes for you?

Your brain may be goingtilt-tiltafter reading that statement, but its completely true! Jesus Christ longs for you to personally experience His cherishing love and exuberant life in your Monday-through-Sunday living. He knows that as you enjoy His lavishing, unconditional love, you wont be able to help but express it in this world. The secret to loving is living loved in Christ, your Spiritual Bridegroom.

His Banner Over Me Is Pursuing Loveis the first of three intimate and interactive six-week studies of the Song of Solomon, an allegory describing the divine romance between Christ and His bride, the church. Spanning chapters 1 and 2, this premier installment will help you renew your mind with the following refreshing and liberating truths:

As the bride of Christ, you are completely forgiven for the sins of your lifetime.
Through Christs finished work on the cross and your identification with Him in His crucifixion and resurrection, you have been made brand-new, and Christ is now your very life.
The new covenant made in Christs blood has forever sealed you in Him. Your Spiritual Bridegroom will never leave you nor forsake you, regardless of what you do or dont do.
Because of His grace, you are free from law-based living to be completely enamored with Christ alone.
You have a real, invisible enemy who is trying everything within his limited power to hoodwink you into accepting his lies about who you are. Once you learn his most effective strategy, you will be armed and dangerous to the kingdom of darkness.

If you long to know Jesus as the love of your life, this study is for you!
