New Project Connect Booklet Handles
One of Life's Thorniest Issues


The weight of suicide on those surviving the deceased is the topic of The Unbearable Sorrow: When Suicide Hits Home from Project Connect. The impact and irrevocability of this final life choice leaves people reeling in its wake, searching for answers, loaded with questions. "Why?" "How could this have happened?" "What troubled this person so much?" "What more could I have done?" "What more should I have said?" These are the questions of suicide's survivors--those left in the tumult of emotion and confusion after a loved one has taken his or her life. The act of suicide is a complex and perplexing event fraught with loose ends. As this booklet maintains, "One of the most difficult things we must acknowledge as survivors of those who have committed suicide is that some of our questions may not find a satisfactory resolution."

Project Connect Booklets Translated into Spanish

Due to popular demand, Multicultural Ministries Manager, Beatriz Hoppe, translated, edited and adapted these three additional Project Connect booklets into Spanish to benefit the Hispanic population.

Project Connect booklet
Regrets, Reality, Restoration
translated into Spanish is
Remordimientos, Realidad, Restauración (6BS31)


LIFE SKILLS The things we regret doing--or not doing, as the case may be--can wear us down, reshaping our lives and our sense of self, in the process. Left unattended, regrets erode our self-esteem, our willingness to press on, even our ability to think clearly. Everything becomes shrouded by the guilt, the pain we've caused, the sense that lives have been ruined, or at least dreadfully altered, by our foolish mistakes. What's happened in our lives, however, does not have to dictate the present--or the future. We can move beyond the crippling anguish and pain our decisions may have caused.  read more >>

 



Project Connect Booklet
The Bible: What? When? Why?
translated into Spanish is
La Biblia ¿Qué? ¿Cuándo? ¿Por qué? (6BS32)


SPIRITUAL LIFE Why do Christians care so much about Bible? They read the Bible and talk about it and study it. They preach and teach about it. Why is this book so important? When was it written? Who is it about? What is it that makes it so different from other books that have come down to us through the centuries? In this booklet you will learn about the individual books within the Bible that form the Scriptures as a whole--the Word of God given to mankind.  read more >>

 



Project Connect Booklet
The Truth about Angels
translated into Spanish is
La verdad sobre los ángeles (6BS33)


SPIRITUAL LIFE Today's media features many stories on angels. The New Age Movement suggests that each of us has a "personal angel" and encourages us to get in contact with it. Do angels really exist? Explore the biblical evidence of angels and their purpose inside this booklet. You'll also discover answers to many of the questions raised in the media and by New Age religious movements. Inside you'll find the special role angels serve in delivering the Gospel message.  read more >>
