Money is something we handle every day. But how deeply does the Bible inform what we do with it? If we truly want to honor the Lord in how we use it, should we be giving most of it away? Is money basically a necessary evil - a constant temptation in our pocket? Are we wrong for wanting to take vacations with our families, for example, when we could be giving that money to others in need? Instead of just letting you hear the answers to questions like these, this book presents them in a richly informative and inspiring devotional experience. As you daily explore 12 Things Jesus Said about Money, you´ll be learning and reinforcing new convictions, each of them grounded in what Jesus himself taught. Not only will it clear up misconceptions or conflicting messages you may have heard over the years, it will help you express these same truths to your children, incorporate them into your ongoing decisions, and enjoy a new measure of freedom in your financial life. 1.

Sketching has long been a best practice for designers. Through sketches, designers follow a generative process of developing, honing, and choosing ideas. Designers also use sketches to discuss, exchange, and critique ideas with others. When designers sketch user experiences, their drawings also need to incorporate the actions, interactions, and changes of these experiences that unfold over time. This can be challenging if you are a non-artist, or have not been trained within a conventional design discipline that specifically practices the time element that is so critical to interactive interfaces. In Sketching User Experiences: The Workbook, you will learn, through step-by-step instructions and exercises, various sketching methods that will let you express your design ideas about user experiences across time. Collectively, these methods will be your sketching repertoire: a toolkit where you can choose the method most appropriate for developing your ideas, which will help you cultivate a culture of experience-based design and critique in your workplace.
The author of this system, Andy Fuehl, was downsized and unemployed after devoting over 15 years to corporate America. Yet, he became a millionaire in less than three years as a result of using the accelerated subconscious reprogramming technology and specific strategies, behaviors, and beliefs of the ultra-wealthy that you´ll be using in this system. Thousands of other people have also used this system to create an abundant and happy life instead of just getting by, wishing and hoping it would change. Now, you too can take control of your life and start the business of your dreams, doing the work you love, or skyrocket the results of your current business to new heights exactly the way you want. Here´s a fraction of what you´ll learn in this system: Why a job is much riskier than being in your own business. How to determine your true purpose so that you choose a business that expresses your own values. How to minimize the emotions that hinder success in entrepreneurship and maximize the emotions proven to help you succeed. How to incorporate the three ingredients necessary for effective change - Awareness, Acceptance, Action - into your everyday life. The most powerful negotiating strategy ever used to produce win-win results. How to launch your own business even if you´re currently employed or unemployed.

´´Eric Evans has written a fantastic book on how you can make the design of your software match your mental model of the problem domain you are addressing. ´´His book is very compatible with XP. It is not about drawing pictures of a domain; it is about how you think of it, the language you use to talk about it, and how you organize your software to reflect your improving understanding of it. Eric thinks that learning about your problem domain is as likely to happen at the end of your project as at the beginning, and so refactoring is a big part of his technique. ´´The book is a fun read. Eric has lots of interesting stories, and he has a way with words. I see this book as essential reading for software developers-it is a future classic.´´ - Ralph Johnson , author of Design Patterns ´´If you don´t think you are getting value from your investment in object-oriented programming, this book will tell you what you´ve forgotten to do. ´´Eric Evans convincingly argues for the importance of domain modeling as the central focus of development and provides a solid framework and set of techniques for accomplishing it. This is timeless wisdom, and will hold up long after the methodologies du jour have gone out of fashion.´´ - Dave Collins , author of Designing Object-Oriented User Interfaces ´´Eric weaves real-world experience modeling-and building-business applications into a practical, useful book. Written from the perspective of a trusted practitioner, Eric´s descriptions of ubiquitous language, the benefits of sharing models with users, object life-cycle management, logical and physical application structuring, and the process and results of deep refactoring are major contributions to our field.´´ - Luke Hohmann , author of Beyond Software Architecture This book belongs on the shelf of every thoughtful software developer. --Kent Beck What Eric has managed to capture is a part of the design process that experienced object designers have always used, but that we have been singularly unsuccessful as a group in conveying to the rest of the industry. We´ve given away bits and pieces of this knowledge...but we´ve never organized and systematized the principles of building domain logic. This book is important. --Kyle Brown, author of Enterprise Java(TM) Programming with IBM® WebSphere® The software development community widely acknowledges that domain modeling is central to software design. Through domain models, software developers are able to express rich functionality and translate it into a software implementation that truly serves the needs of its users. But despite its obvious importance, there are few practical resources that explain how to incorporate effective domain modeling into the software development process. Domain-Driven Design fills that need. This is not a book about specific technologies. It offers readers a systematic approach to domain-driven design, presenting an extensive set of design best practices, experience-based techniques, and fundamental principles that facilitate the development of software projects facing complex domains. Intertwining design and development practice, this book incorporates numerous examples based on actual projects to illustrate the application of domain-driven design to real-world software development. Readers learn how to use a domain model to make a complex development effort more focused and dynamic. A core of best practices and standard patterns provides a common language for the development team. A shift in emphasis--refactoring not just the code but the model underlying the code--in combination with the frequent iterations of Agile development leads to deeper insight into domains and enhanced communication between domain expert and programmer.
