Woman to Woman addresses major challenges women inevitably encounter in their pursuit of love.

Weaved within their stories, Dr. Granzotto discusses critical issues that characterize healthy love and intimacy.
This illuminating study explores areas vital to the understanding of what it means to become a fully-realized woman today: why woman-to-woman psychotherapy is so powerfully transforming, how the process works, and why women must reclaim their lost femininity in order to be whole.

In recent years, scholars have started to look beyond contemptuous representations of chaotic female communities and are beginning to reveal a neglected history of women's cooperative activity. Most work on female collaboration has been in the literary sphere, where the two main topics of relevance are the society of bluestockings and the utopian literary visions of female societies in the eighteenth-century novel. Scholars have highlighted the benefits of female co-operation, but repressive elements have been just as visible. Woman to Woman provides a multi-disciplinary approach to this underexplored theme in order to demonstrate the rich diversity and productivity of female relationships. This collection provides the basis for a more thorough exploration of the benign and beneficial qualities of female communities. Fresh ideas on the study of women's history have revealed that there is still much to be learned about female sociability in all its forms. The most important factor to consider is the vast range of eighteenth-century evidence from public and private sources. Unfortunately, demands of relevance can force investigators to omit some resources from their publications, while devoting close attention to others. Another issue that affects this enterprise is the wide variation in the amount of publicity generated by different forms of female association, and in the care with which they were recorded. These essays draw together the best of current scholarship to show how collaboration enabled eighteenth-century women to intervene in military and political affairs, achieve literary success, experience religious fulfillment, and engage in philanthropic projects. Part I focuses on blood ties, analyzing a range of family relationships; Part II explores female sociability, including various forms of negotiation and co-operation between female friends and companions; Part III provides fascinating new readings of historic figures and events, highlighting the collaborative activity of extraordinary, adventurous women who knowingly risked their lives in order to achieve their goals, including the contemporary exploits of Emma Hamilton and the founding mothers of New France in Canada, and Boadicea's inspiring historical example. This collection honors the late Mary Waldron, whose generous encouragement of other specialists in feminist studies in the long eighteenth century is described in Isobel Grundy's Preface. The volume will interest professional academics, as well as postgraduate and under-graduate students in gender studies and eighteenth-century studies programs.
Intimate relationships play a central role in women's lives. After all, experiencing a deep bond with a loved one is critical for a woman's sense of identity and emotional well-being. Finding true love, however, has its challenges and adversities. You may, for instance, experience infidelity in your relationship, have a partner who fails to respect your boundaries, or feel deeply sad and lonely in your marriage. You may be a woman whose relationship is crumbling, or is enduring the end of a marriage. You could also be a woman who has a strong desire to marry but can't find your soul mate. In Woman to Woman you will read about women who experienced such challenges, as well as those who were able to find fulfillment in their romantic relationships. In their own words, they talk about marriage, sex, infidelity, divorce, and single life. Entwined within their stories, Dr. Granzotto discusses critical issues that characterize a healthy intimate relationship. In the same way that a woman speaks intimately to another, she provides her expert knowledge and insight that will empower you with a better understanding of yourself and your love life.

While serving, Andrew witnessed many interesting places and things, some of which had to be written down. This particular mystery-thriller takes place in Brommer County, Missouri. Where two lawless riders were responsible for all the mayhem and carnage dealt to the nearby communities; their foul actions were done solely out of spite and greed, but unbeknownst to them, their deeds would eventually catch up with them. Many years later, four young adults headed to a concert they believed would be the best one yet. On their way to the show, they noticed some things weren't quite right. The young group initially thought they were lost, but soon found that was not the case at all. Not much later, it was revealed to them the reason behind their misfortune. While signs to turn back were being boldly displayed, their egos were too big to notice.
Like many women in the Church, Joy Loewen didn't fully understand Muslim women or their roles in the Muslim culture and religion. In fact, she was afraid of them and not particularly interested in befriending them. But with prayer, wisdom, and a lot of love, Joy overcame these obstacles, found that she actually liked them, and that many of these women are irresistibly attracted to the love of Jesus. For the last thirty years she has used this knowledge to build authentic connections with Muslim women, reaching out to them in a sensitive, effective way. In this practical and very personal book, Joy shares not only her insights into befriending Muslim women, but many helpful stories from her own experiences. Her goal is to help readers "move from fear to love and compassion" so that they, too, can love as Christ does. Woman to Woman is essential reading for Christian leaders, ministries, and any layperson who wants to grow in love for and understanding of Muslims.
Whether your heart is burdened or bursting with joy, nothing satisfies quite like talking things over with another woman. Regardless of the paths our lives take, all women are "sisters"-we speak a common language; we share a universal bond. Because the hopes and dreams that both burden and give flight to a woman's heart dwell within all of us, we create relationships that are intensely rich, precious and prized. Thus, we comfort and encourage each other; we help each other through life's ups and downs; we know each other's experiences as if they were our own; we are a blessing to each other. As this book of beautiful, inspirational life lessons reveals, sharing the experiences of our lives imbues us with a wisdom the soul reveres: Nothing happens without God's permission.

Around the world, throughout time, cultures have marked the intimate and transformative events of a woman's life - the onset of puberty, her first sexual experience, conceptian, childbirth, menopause - with myths and rituals. Today, such significant feminine rituals are missing, but these transitions still profoundly affect a woman's body, mind, and soul. Offering a compelling vision of psychotherapy as a sacred space for women's rites of passage, Jungian analyst Virginia Beane Rutter brilliantly illuminates the emotional lives of women. "Woman-to-woman therapy," writes Beane Rutter, "is the ritual container for the lost feminine in our culture." Modeling on intrinsically female pattern of change, woman-to-woman therapy is a process involving stages of containment, transformation, and emergence. It is a place for a woman to uncover and make conscious the motivating stories and myths in her individual psyche. Here, a woman has the opportunity to listen to her own voice perhaps for the first time. With insight and understanding, Beane Rutter connects the practices, myths, and archetypal images of cultures post and present (the Navajo, Neolithic Catal Huyuk, and Ancient Greek) to the life experiences, dreams, and therapeutic processes of three contemporary women. In so doing, she traces the emotional, physical, and spiritual journey of the "cultural heroine" who, through her individual process of initiation, transformation, healing, and self-awareness, courageously takes up the task of all women.
