5-0 out of 5 stars Whimsical Vogue
I have several books of faerie art ranging from dark to silly and this is a nice, sweet whimsical addition with really stunning illustration.It's a flirty, fanciful faery Cosmo magazine, full of dresses made of dried flower's petals and dandelion fluff.Nothing is too girly, there's no such thing as too many embellishments or too much color and it's all tied together with loopy script and light text.

The book itself is lovingly created, the paper heavy and glossy, the book substantially weighty and large.It works well as a coffee table book just because it's fun to look at; it doesn't need any other purpose.If you like faeries, if you like silly fashion and books that exist just because they look nice and make you smile and feel happier and don't need any deeper meaning than that, then this is perfect.I've paged through it many times and loaned it out quite a few more.

I have a niece who's very into faeries at the moment and I actually ended up recreating several outfits in this book for her dolls using parts of silk flowers and ribbons - so it's not just lovely to look at, it's inspirational too.

5-0 out of 5 stars faerie fashion
this is essentially a coffee table book...
dear lovers of faerie fashion,
... made as a fashion collection of the latest offerings of the House of Ellwand, it features various leaves, vines and other elements of nature made into faerie costumes. Here we mean diminutive faeries, but still, the large and human shaped faerie can surely be inspired by it for their own fashion creation. This book really is a delight. Created for a lighter look at Fairy, just as the Gnomes books were years ago, it still has much to offer for those of us who take a somewhat more serious approach to our relationships with the Fairie worlds. This is a lovely and fun book and really quite unique and clever.

1-0 out of 5 stars Could have been better
I thought i was going to get this amazing book based on other reviews. it was disappointing. It is more of a children's book with lots of interactive pages. i was hoping it was an art book that would show pictures and photos of clothes made in a fairy like resemblance. it's more of a card making or paper crafting book put together with some modeldrawings to show you what it could look like on a person. the artistry isn't that advanced, just layers of dried flowers and leaves, laid flat, and cut to look like clothes. i flipped through it quickly and then gave it to my 4 year.

Product Description

Barbara Paleczny, herself a daughter of garment workers, tugs at the threads of homeworking in the garment industry to reveal a low-wage strategy that rends the fabric of social integrity and exposes global trends. The resurgence of sweatshops affects the working poor in both first- and third-world countries.

Paleczny assesses the responsibility of transnational retailers for unacceptable wages and working conditions and describes historic shifts in the global context of garment production. After exploring systemic causes of poverty, relevant policy setting, and ethical foundations, Paleczny introduces both short- and long-range possibilities for transformation, emphasizing the collaborative nature of work.

Clothed in Integrity draws on feminist studies, alternative economics, and the ethical foundations proposed by Bernard Lonergan to fashion a constructive work in which Paleczny connects issues of societal meanings and values, moral imperatives, and economic feasibility. With candour, she shares personal stories of engagement in coalition work. Those who dwell on this text will find information, challenges, and inspiration to nurture their reflection, research, dialogue, and action.

4-0 out of 5 stars Fashion Me a People
Maria Harris has written an awesome book on how the church should revamp it's image on teaching our people God's word.This is a must read for all teachers in the church (everyone).

3-0 out of 5 stars Applicable to the church
According to an online dictionary, the meaning of "curriculum" is "all the courses of study offered by an educational institution" or "a set of courses constituting an area of specialization" (dictionary.com). In "Fashion Me a People," Maria Harris paints a multi-dimensional picture of "curriculum" within a church context.In fact, "curriculum" is not "reducible to resource materials" (8), nor is it simply "indoctrination" or "giving instructions" (48).Curriculum is "an activity, a practice of a people" (8), carried out by the "whole community" of believers (46).According to Harris, there are five forms of curriculum: (1) koinonia--the curriculum of community; (2) leiturgia--the curriculum of prayer; (3) didache--the curriculum of teaching; (4) kerygma--the curriculum of proclamation; and (5) diakonia--the curriculum of service (5).In other words, "curriculum" is the teaching about God (didache), how to worship God (leiturgia), how to love God's people (koinonia), how to love those outside the church (diakonia), and how to tell others about Christ (kerygma).These five forms of curriculum must be done by all believers.

The idea of "curriculum" is said to be a type of education that "includes education to and by community" (48).The title clearly shows that the curriculum in question is for the church, so it is unclear if the author intended to include the community of unbelievers in the context of curriculum. It makes sense that the church's curriculum would be to the community, but this type of education cannot be reciprocated unless the "community" are Christians.In the same sense, her chapter on "the curriculum of service" was essentially social care.There is nothing wrong with helping people to meet their need for food or clothing, but if the five forms of curriculum are to be fulfilled then there must be some sort of teaching or proclaiming about God intermixed with the act of service to the community.

In one part of the book, Harris uses Paulo Freire's description of "human beings as subjects" (67).Although its inclusion was to expand one's understanding of the "many layers of subject matter," the descriptive words used to show the tension of every human seemed confusing.For instance, Harris quotes Freire, "for human beings the essential decision is between speaking or remaining embedded in a culture of silence, between naming ourselves or being named by others, between remaining an object or becoming a subject" (67).One could assume that the intent of this quote was to illustrate that people are in need of "knowing" and "being known," a "need" expressed by Maslow.

Harris takes old concepts and presents them as something new.For example, she shares, "in a newer educational ministry framework, the whole community is educating and empowering the whole community to engage in ministry in the midst of the world" (46).This concept is found in Matthew 28:19-20 and Acts 2:44-47 which essentially states that Christians ought to support one another and proclaim Christ to all people.She claims that the "present direction" is to "engage in ministry in the midst of the world," but it has already been mentioned by Paul in Romans 12:2. In her chapter on the "curriculum of prayer," Harris includes that prayer toward "God our Mother" or "God as the Great Sphere" is acceptable because some people are "desiring imagery for God" in order to pray (96).This act of creating a god does not properly convey leiturgia, didache, and kerygma.

The author did an incredible job of expanding the definition of "curriculum."She made it very clear that "curriculum" was more than just a textbook--it was the activity or duty of all Christians.In fact, Harris shared that the word "curriculum" came from a Latin word that meant "to run," and she stressed, "Curriculum is a course to be run" (55).
Her use of the word "curriculum" is very much in line with the Bible's use of the term "run."In the Book of Hebrews, Christians are told to "run with endurance the race that is set before us" (Heb. 12:1), while Isaiah reminds believers that those "who wait on the LORD shall renew their strength...they shall run and not be weary" (Isa. 40:31), and Paul tells Timothy in his last letter, "I have finished the race, I have kept the faith" (2 Tim. 4:7).

Following each chapter, Harris included questions that induced rumination and contemplation that directed the reader to practical application of the chapter's content.One exercise in particular was an examination of the church's overall curriculum--the "explicit," "implicit," and "null" forms of curriculum as it pertained to the five forms of curriculum.Earlier in the chapter she had pointed out that the "explicit" curriculum was anything written, while "implicit" was the aesthetics or "patterns, organization, or procedures" of the explicit curriculum (i.e. "attitudes" or "design of a room") (69).The "null" curriculum was basically the unwritten rules or the curriculum that is unmentioned, such as "points of view" or "design of worship" (69).

Harris' redefinition of "curriculum" makes it possible for churches to evaluate their whole ministry in terms of the congregation as a "curriculum," meaning that the aspects of "community, prayer, teaching, proclaiming, and service" is taken into consideration when seeking the best way to engage God's Word (175). I would say that the book is written for the church, although it would not help in actually finding written curriculum.

5-0 out of 5 stars Maria Harris is essential reading
Maria Harris provides essential reading for those interested in creative levels of teaching in religious education and theology.

3-0 out of 5 stars A different way to think about ministry
I thought that this book presented me with a different way to think about ministry in the church.It challenges the reader to think about how things are structured in their church and whether or not that structure reaches out to everyone that it possibly could.I particularly liked the 5 different types of curriculum that it laid out. The reflection exercies would be especially helpful if a church staff or small group were using this study together.
The one thing that I didn't like about this book is that it didn't do a great job of making suggestions, giving examples, or even helping a congregation/ministry explore what its growing hedges were. I think that concrete things like those will really help to advance the church and its mission into the future instead of just theorizing about what learning in a church setting looks like.

4-0 out of 5 stars Church education
Maria Harris' book Fashion Me A People was a very insightful read for me.I particularly enjoyed the second section of the book, where she mentioned the five different curriculums used within the church.The five curriculums are as follows: Koinonia, which is Community, Leiturgia, which is Prayer, Didache, which is Teaching, Kerygma, which is Proclamation, and Diakonia, which is Service. I also liked how Harris really pushed the idea that learning and education in the church is a long-term commitment and not just present.In other words, the people of the church will always be learning. ...

The title of this book is incredibly misleading.IT has NOTHING to do with body adornment.It is about the changing sociological perspective of the human body and the gender issues involved.I bought this book with theintention of doing a research paper on body adornment, but all 175 pages ofthis book were unusable.It was a complete waste of my money.The editorsshould SERIOUSLY consider changing the title so as to not TRICK the readingpublic.

Product Description
The great 20th century metaphysician Frithjof Schuon was also a spiritual master familiar with the spiritual struggles of modern seekers. He once wrote, "To be a human being means to be connected with God; life has no meaning without this." This "human vocation" means that until we find a personal connection with God we are not able to connect with the innermost being that lies locked up within the human heart. Schuon’s simplest solution to all people of all religious persuasions: "You must pray, always pray." James S. Cutsinger, author, editor, and scholar, has collected into this volume some of the most memorable writings on prayer and the spiritual life by this great 20th century spiritual figure. Prayer Fashions Man includes an appendix of excerpts from letters and other writings which have not been published before. Thus, previous readers of Schuon will rejoice in this wonderful collection of many of his best writings on prayer and the human vocation, as well as seeing some materials they have never seen before. Readers new to Schuon will find, as countless others have, insights on spirituality that call to their innermost being in a universal language that all people of all times and all religions can, and indeed must, understand. ...

Product Description
The 18th century was a wealth of knowledge, exploration and rapidly growing technology and expanding record-keeping made possible by advances in the printing press. In its determination to preserve the century of revolution, Gale initiated a revolution of its own: digitization of epic proportions to preserve these invaluable works in the largest archive of its kind. Now for the first time these high-quality digital copies of original 18th century manuscripts are available in print, making them highly accessible to libraries, undergraduate students, and independent scholars.
The Age of Enlightenment profoundly enriched religious and philosophical understanding and continues to influence present-day thinking. Works collected here include masterpieces by David Hume, Immanuel Kant, and Jean-Jacques Rousseau, as well as religious sermons and moral debates on the issues of the day, such as the slave trade. The Age of Reason saw conflict between Protestantism and Catholicism transformed into one between faith and logic -- a debate that continues in the twenty-first century.

Product Description

Religions constrain the bodies of their members through dress.In many cases, dress immediately identifies a member of the community to the outside world and separates them from a society that members believe is threatened by evil forces.Dress identifies the wearer's community to other groups and communities, and may also reflect one's status.Most interestingly, perhaps, dress is a measure of one's level of commitment to the community. While communities vary greatly in terms of what is permissible, strict conformity to internal codes invariably is interpreted as a sign of piety, whereas deviation implies at best self-indulgence and at worst contempt for community values. In order to control sexuality, women's bodies in particular are constrained in religious communities in terms of emotional expression, diet, and especially dress.

This book investigates dress in American religious communities as a vital component of the social control of cultures, and also examines how people express themselves despite religious constraints.Gender issues feature prominently since the control of female sexuality within religious communities is a matter of vital concern to its members.Drawing on rich ethnographic case studies, this wide-ranging and interdisciplinary represents a major contribution to the study of both religion and dress.

I have a 9 year old little girl and this was a great way to carve out special time together and get to know each other better.This book has all those things you want to say to your daughter--that she is beautiful beyond what the world calls beautiful, and she is worth more than the world tells her she is--and it is all in one place, ready to help you communicate it well to your daughter.This book also helped both of us strengthen our personal relationship with God.I HIGHLY recommend this book!I wish my mother had a resource like this when I was young!

Reviewed by Tiffany Schlarman for Reader Views (10/10)

When I saw this book available for review I was excited.As a little girl I can remember my father taking me on daddy/daughter dates where he kept up with my interests, taught me how a lady should be treated and made me feel secure, beautiful and loved.I have very fond memories of these special once a month "dates" and always looked forward to them.As a mom, I wanted my daughters to have the same experience with both their father and I.This book gave me a head start in planning and direction to accomplish this goal.

"8 Great Dates for Moms and Daughters" is a guide, devotional and planner for moms.It addresses the topics of true beauty, fashion and modesty.The book is a great tool for use in great mommy/daughter dates that I feel could be used and adapted for many ages although it is directed toward the "tween" age group.Our daughters face pressures earlier than we did, it is never too early to discuss that true beauty is on the inside along with modesty.Each date is geared toward the goal above, modesty, inner beauty and self worth.

"8 Great Dates" starts off with a short chapter specifically for mom, which I found very uplifting.As a mom the stress of womanhood, nagging children, household chores, bills and other issues can easily wear you down.This chapter had a positive, understanding message that helped clarify the books' purpose along with my purpose as a mom.From here it went on to another short yet important chapter, "understanding the tween emotions and years."Although you've been through it, this new generation is not the same as previous generations, pressures have changed and each woman is uniquely different.This chapter helped remind me just how tough those years can be and brought back a sea of emotions and understanding.The third chapter gives a quick and important overview on how to maximize the use of the dates to follow.Each date is its own chapter and includes a key verse, key thought, suggested setting (tea room, spa, shopping etc.) along with materials, lesson plans and an evaluation. The book includes budget friendly options for those who may need to have the date at home in order to save on cost.A huge bonus to this book and also to each date is the audio download available to accompany each date.The audio is used before and after each date while you are driving to your destination, preparing both hearts and minds for the date ahead.

I really enjoyed reading this book and can't wait to use it with both of my daughters. I highly suggest this to all moms with daughters. It has a wealth of knowledge and information on helping our daughters to understand their own true beauty and unique personality. I felt the book does a good job of bringing forth biblical principles without going overboard and suggesting ideas such as "no makeup allowed," etc. It has a good focus on modesty with tips that allow girls to be fashionable yet remain modest. I appreciated all the extra material the book had to offer including the devotional ideas, audio downloads, FAQ, budget tips and question & answer sessions. I would like to see "8 Great Dates for Moms and Daughters" become a series on a variety of topics useful for moms and daughters. ... Read more
