Here is a go-to page for what everyone should be somewhat familiar with. (Under Construction) comment with issues I am missing, thanks 🙂

It is extremely handy to listen to your books while you perform other tasks. I used to bike to college and work, listening to books as well as research that I converted into audio format. The Audible books are my preferred method.
Here’s a super cool lesson by Lisa Bevere. It is specifically designed by a woman for women, but I think any warrior will find it beneficial. So man up, guys, and learn how to wield your sword like a girl!
The world scene is transitioning from what we have known to something far more technological. The inherent dangers and the perceived benefits are topics that everybody should familiarize themselves with. DO NOT be one of the poverty stricken uninformed masses. Educate yourself and at least be prepared with some level of topical knowledge. To get started, I suggest two people of high impact in this new arms race. Ray Kurzweil was a man ahead of his time, and could arguably be the main protagonist in the development of such tech as nanobots and artificial intelligence. Elon Musk is described as a major investor. He has contributed millions in financial support, establishing the world’s first council on human-friendly AI developments. I strongly recommend familiarizing yourself with this man, he may be the forefather of the coming global inter-species empire. You never know. . .
Ray Kurzweil “is an American author, computer scientist, inventor and futurist. Aside from futurism, he is involved in fields such as optical character recognition (OCR), text-to-speech synthesis, speech recognition technology, and electronic keyboard instruments. He has written books on health, artificial intelligence (AI), transhumanism, the technological singularity, and futurism. Kurzweil is a public advocate for the futurist and transhumanist movements, and gives public talks to share his optimistic outlook on life extension technologies and the future of nanotechnology, robotics, and biotechnology.” (copied from wiki)
Elon Musk “is a South African-born Canadian-American business magnate, investor, engineer, and inventor. He is the founder, CEO, and CTO of SpaceX; co-founder, CEO, and product architect of Tesla Inc.; co-founder and chairman of SolarCity; co-chairman of OpenAI; co-founder of Zip2; and founder of X.com, which merged with Confinity and took the name PayPal. As of March 2017, he has an estimated net worth of 13.9 billion, making him the 80th wealthiest person in the world. In December 2016, Musk was ranked 21st on Forbes list of The World’s Most Powerful People.” (Copied from wiki)
The BIBLE! If you haven’t familiarized yourself with the world’s most printed collection of ancient manuscripts. . . just read it for crying out loud.
The Bible “(from Koine Greek τὰ βιβλία, tà biblía, “the books”) is a collection of sacred texts or scriptures that Jews and Christians consider to be a product of divine inspiration and a record of the relationship between God and humans. Many different authors contributed to the Bible. What is regarded as canonical text differs depending on traditions and groups; a number of Bible canons have evolved, with overlapping and diverging contents. The Christian Old Testament overlaps with the Hebrew Bible and the Greek Septuagint; the Hebrew Bible is known in Judaism as the Tanakh. The New Testament is a collection of writings by early Christians, believed to be mostly Jewish disciples of Christ, written in first-century Koine Greek. These early Christian Greek writings consist of narratives, letters, and apocalyptic writings. Among Christian denominations there is some disagreement about the contents of the canon, primarily the Apocrypha, a list of works that are regarded with varying levels of respect.” (copied from wiki)
The LGBTQ issue is at the forefront of many social arguments. It is essential to learn what the topic is really about, and to formulate a well thought-out opinion before contending for your beliefs in a public forum. Essentially, the gender argument is not what you think it is, and throwing biblical references around will not hep anybody. Here are a couple of informative links, one in support (and for the support) of those identifying as LGBTQ, The Welcoming Project and one in support of those removing themselves from the LGBTQ identity, and to inform the church on appropriate behavior when discussing this topic, Free Indeed Central Oregon
