Powerful attraction in one small bag Cultures worldwide have long incorporated small bags containing herbs, stones, and other sacred items as part of their belief systems, whether to ward off evil, protect them while traveling or to attract positive elements into their lives. Egyptians carried amulets for protection, Native Americans wore medicine bags filled with healing herbs, and African Americans collected “sticks, stones, roots and bones” inside flannel bags and called them “mojo” or “gris gris.” Gris gris and sachet bags are, in essence, a prayer or magical spell you can carry with you. Magic’s in the Bag explores this history, plus offers 75 simple spells to create your own gris gris bag, including bags for prosperity, safe travel, contacting spirits, protection and more. You’ll get tips on which plants to use, what stones are appropriate, what spells work best for phases of the moon — even how to grow a gris gris garden! Jude Bradley is a writer, editor, producer, and teacher. She also works as a spiritual consultant, using card readings, mediumship, and energy guidance in her practice. Jude lives in the Boston area. A native of New Orleans, Cheré Dastugue Coen is a freelance journalist, teacher, and author of both nonfiction books and a paranormal mystery series under the pen name of Cherie Claire.

You can take it with you! First the bra, then slippers and specs -- now celebrated designer Samuele Mazza has unleashed legions of artists and designers on the handbag. Consider the luggage: Filled with our most valuable possessions, we hold tight to purse and briefcase like talismans. If lost or stolen, we are humbled, vowing renewed diligence in their care. In the Bag turns the artist's eye on this font of security, with astonishing results. Almost two hundred original renditions reflect the bags we carry every day--including the trademark shopping bags of Tiffany's and Bloomingdale's --and those we only dream of: a mossy log cum evening clutch, a skull-and-crossbones mini-pack. At turns delightful and disturbing, these new interpretations make for an amusing and provocative addition to the Mazza legacy. With a foreword and three essays exploring concepts of baggage, portability, and containment, In the Bag is all a reader needs to carry on in high style.

The Bag Lady was created out of the many little stories told to me down through my career dealing with young adults who lack God in their lives. Listening and telling young people about Jesus and choices motivated me to write this book, in hopes that it would help them understand that man may let them down but God won’t. The Bag Lady is filled with little stories of young, struggling women who put themselves in danger, looking for love and desperately seeking ways to get on the right path of life. This book also teaches that looking for love in the wrong places and then trying to get revenge can lead to destruction. Finally, it teaches that you must be true to yourself and have faith in God and depend on Him only to take you through the storms of life. Why settle for less, when God can give you more that you need, if only you would trust Him?
