STRAIGHT FROM HOLLYWOOD comes a dynamic business model for building a thriving career without compromising your faith.

You are the movie. Produced by Faith parallels each step of the Hollywood filmmaking process with the faith-making process God uses to turn your career into a success. You will discover that it is possible to be both wildly successful and completely committed to God—and that you will be even more successful when you place your faith at the center of your career. You can unleash the power of your faith as your greatest professional advantage and use the compass of God’s Word to guide you to your true passion and purpose in life. In this informative, inspiring book, DeVon reveals the secrets to maintaining your faith while advancing in your career. Here he shows you: • How to discover The Big Idea for your life • How to take your career to the next level • How to recognize the signs God sends you that indicate when it’s time to move in a new direction • How to stand firm on your Christian principles without compromise • How to work with people who don’t understand your beliefs • How to choose a profession, industry, or company that is in tune with your purpose DeVon says, “I know from my own experiences that if you will put your career in God’s hands and trust him, you can’t account for all the ways he will bless you. When you step out in faith, he will open doors and bring you opportunities that will surpass even your wildest expectations. . . . If I have learned anything, it’s this: to get where you want to go, you first have to become the person God wants you to be.”

Popular speaker and author Sarah Jakes Roberts shows women they are not disqualified by their pain and failures and offers encouragement and strength to believe God’s best is still possible. Everyone has experiences in their lives that stop them in their tracks and become burdens they carry with them everywhere they go. No one knows this better than Sarah Jakes Roberts. Pregnant at fourteen, married by nineteen, divorced by twenty-two, and all while under the intense spotlight of being Bishop T.D. Jakes’s daughter, Sarah knows what it is to feel buried by failure and aching pain. But when her journey brought her to faith’s fork in the road, Sarah found she had to choose between staying in the comfort of the pain she knew or daring to make new wounds and move forward.

The book explores the primacy of sexuality in human life, and how relations with sex and sexuality can become distorted from what is considered ‘normative’. Its reading will challenge our intellectual laziness through a confrontation with unusual, "bizarre”, and "odd” sexual behaviors. Such behaviors almost always elicit judgmental reactions that hinder our deeper understanding of human relationships; of our relationships to ourselves, to others and to our bodies Using a psychoanalytic framework, and with humour, incision and clarity of thought, the book explores why this happens. It achieves this through presenting us with a series of interwoven vignettes of clinical work and life experiences, that have crucially inflected the professional development and world view of the author. As human beings we have the responsibility to develop a much more enquiring and open mind, and to feel privileged to have access to primitive fantasies that illuminate the dynamics of minds whose contents differ from the normative. At times, as is revealed in this book, the pursuit of understanding will take us to the primitive, archaic origins of our present actions, which are sometimes intended for our own survival, in a world experienced as distant from concerns of ethics or morality. In such instances, what appears to be self-destructive – in many ways articulation of the death instinct – also secures survival. The book connects with blooming public interest and acceptance of unusual sexual practices, as well as the backlash against those that remain unacceptable and vilified.
