Suellen Hoy's Good Hearts describes and analyzes the activities and contributions of Catholic nuns in Chicago. Beginning with the arrival of women-religious in 1846 and ending with the sisters' social activism in the 1960s, Good Hearts traces the development and evolution of the sisters' work and ministry that included education, health care, and social services.Contrary to conventional portrayals of religious as reclusive and conservative, the nuns in Good Hearts are revealed as dynamic, powerful agents of change. Catholic sisters lived on the edge, serving sick and poor immigrants as well as those racially and religiously unlike themselves, such as the uneducated black migrants from the South. At all times, the sisters emphasized the importance of education to social mobility and equality. Hoy makes extensive use of primary documents, secondary sources, and personal interviews, as well as a series of revealing photographs to document their work and show that while almost always hidden, never-ending, and regularly ignored by male church leaders, the sisters' contributions were unique and generous, often saving those most at risk in a growing city.

Regardless of age, we each live simultaneously as a child and a parent while at home, work, and play. Receiving divine instruction daily, each person remains forever a child in the universe. If you have children, if you have employees or colleagues, if you have friends and family, if you have a spouse or partner, if you aspire to align with Self, you are also a parent, nurturing growth. According to the sacred contract, each of us is charged to nourish the heart of any child entrusted into our care, support every child's development, count the blessings each child brings, cutivate goodness and light, remain true to the divine plan, and facilitate lush growth. Integrating expertise in child development, parenting, and spirituality, the author discusses parenting moments from infancy through the toddler years. Each moment is divided into three sections: an anecdote illustrating a teachable moment in a child's development, a discussion of the developmental concept involved, and an application of the life lesson at a higher level. In addition, prayers are interspersed throughout the book to provide wishes, guidance, and encouragement from the child at heart. A parenting mantra is repeated as a reminder to relax, breathe, and realize that teachable moments are a part of healthy development. Activities are provided to assist the reader's personal development. Each child holds the seed of a parent. Within each parent is the heart of a child. May this book guide you to learn the lessons of child-heart and parent wisely, nurturing the spirit of those entrusted into your care according to the sacred contract. A book from The Heart of Tabankhu

Human life is governed by the heart. The physical heart sustains the body by pumping life-giving blood to every organ and cell. The spiritual heart, on the other hand, is God's dwelling place on earth. Our success or failure in life depends not upon material wealth or social status but upon the condition of our spiritual heart. Everyone without exception needs a new heart from God, clean and right before Him, because without a new heart there cannot be a new life. The heart holds the keys of life. Downing's Heart Manual is biblically and scripturally based to help students know their own hearts and enable them to meet the challenges of life from a heart perspective. This 2-year study guide is designed to help students and teachers broaden their knowledge of the heart and of how to love the Lord with all of their heart, which is the first and greatest commandment (Matthew 22:37-38). Knowledge of our heart is very important because out of the heart flow the issues of life (Proverbs 4:23). In Hosea 4:6 God says, "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge." Spiritual heart knowledge-God's heart as well as our own-is essential for eternal life. This one-of-a-kind heart manual will guide students on an intimate journey into the very heart of God. Dr. Donald R Downing, a heart physician and specialist for God, has been writing and teaching on the heart for over 21 years. The author of over seven books on the heart, he believes that the greatest need of the church today is for leaders who are also spiritual heart specialists and physicians, and who have pure and clean hearts before God.
