Winter On The Farm (Noisy Farm - A Beautifully Illustrated Children's Picture Book, Perfect Bedtime Story)

Winter On The Farm (Noisy Farm – A Beautifully Illustrated Children’s Picture Book, Perfect Bedtime Story)

Beata Noemi Balint (Author, Illustrator)

Price: FREE

Cold wind whooshed between the gigantic mountains drifting along the little oak’s last brown leaf. Forests threw off their shabby clothes and the frost wove them lace dresses from snow instead. All the birds flew away and took the heat of the summer with them. Bears hid in their warm caves. Every animal was looking for a home to accommodate them through the harsh winter.

Deep in the mountains, on the tiny little farm that I will tell you about, life started just now. Three little children were skating on the frozen lake. The whooshing wind amidst the mighty mountains carried far away the sound of their jolly laughter. Soon, the first snowflakes appeared, descending slowly, happily towards the cheerfully skating children. Shortly the entire landscape was covered in snow.

The children left the lake and started to form big snowballs. The snowballs grew bigger and bigger and by the time the children rolled them all the way down the hillock they turned into a gigantic snowman.

He got a huge carrot nose, eyes of two pieces of coal and its smile was tailored quite jolly, too. With a hat on his head and a scarf around the neck, no wonder that the snowman felt truly important. Days were passing by and the snowman was living his happy, everyday life.
But one day…

Eat to Beat Stress: 10 Super Foods to Prevent Major Symptoms of Stress

Eat to Beat Stress: 10 Super Foods to Prevent Major Symptoms of Stress

Leah Borski

Price: FREE

I found this book to be very helpful! Leah does an excellent job of providing new and fresh ideas to incorporate foods that beat stress into our everyday diet. I am terrible at breakfast, but found the morning recipes to be easy, fast and tasty. I highly recommend this book for anyone looking to jump-start their eating habits.

jen

Leah Borski is a work-at-home mom, family nutrition enthusiast, fitness & wellness coach, and TheFamilyTableCookbook.com author/blogger. In Eat to Beat Stress, she lays out a simple and direct guide for using food to defeat five major symptoms of stress.

Research shows that when people feel stressed, they reach for food. The trouble lies in the types of food sought out during these times. Studies have found a tendency toward fatty, high-sugar foods, which throw off the body’s ability to function effectively and essentially drive people into a vicious cycle of compounded stress and poor eating habits.

Eat to Beat Stress demonstrates simply the mechanics of such a pattern and provides a fast-track to breaking it with 10 nutrient rich foods – including protein foods, grains, and fruits & veggies – that specifically target 5 major symptoms of stress.

In this booklet, readers will find an easy-to-use list of superfoods with a brief description of each food’s stress-fighting benefits, photos, serving ideas, shopping tips, cooking instructions, make-ahead tips, recipes from The Family Table Cookbook website, and a sneak preview section of family-friendly recipes from the upcoming publication The Family Table Cookbook: Cook Smart, Stress Less, Eat Better…Together. Each delicious recipe is quick to prepare and includes specific serving tips and instructions for babies and kids (8 months of age and older) so that everyone in the family can easily benefit from the powerful nutrition and stress-busting qualities of these foods.

Greater Than Rubies (The Jewel Trilogy)

Hallee Bridgeman

Price: FREE

Hallee has surpassed any expectations I have had for her as a new author and I hope, no, pray, that she has many many more stories to write and publish! I will read each and every one with great enthusiasm!

Kristina Underhill

Robin Bartlett said, “Yes!” Will she say, “I do,” when the big day arrives?

From his cultured handsome looks to his vast fortune, Antonio “Tony” Viscolli is every red-blooded American girl’s dream match. It doesn’t hurt that he completely loves and adores Robin with all his heart and soul from practically the moment they first meet. Robin comes from a blistering past, struggling and fighting for the survival of herself and her two younger half-sisters in a cold, cruel world. By the time Tony thaws her heart, she has known hunger, poverty, violence, and want. Robin never had a chance to dream of a white wedding gown or a prince charming. Instead, her dreams were nightmares dark and clouded with fear and desperation.

For months, Tony courted the blond beauty with the sapphire eyes. He teased Robin and pursued her. He showered with attention, respect, and charm. He covered her in diamonds, sapphires, and rubies. Tony satisfied every heart’s desire. Finally, Robin came to understand God’s love for her as imitated by the unconditional love Tony freely offered. Then, on a sunny Florida beach, Tony proposed and Robin eagerly said “Yes!”

Back in bitter cold Boston, doubts about becoming a billionaire’s bride begin to crowd out her hopes for happiness. Robin worked for tips until just a few months before Tony proposed on that sunny stretch of sand. In fact, she waited his table less than half a year earlier. Having no experience facing these challenges, Robin struggles to cope feeling the pressures of relocating; of unreliable transportation; of the never-ending details of the shower, the ceremony, the reception, the honeymoon; of worries that her sisters will smoothly transition along with her; of changing her name; all while dealing with her father’s very serious legal problems.

As the date draws inexorably near and the pressure mounts, Robin begins to grasp the scale of her fiancé’s vast material wealth and holdings, the responsibilities of the virtual empire he commands. She witnesses his generosity when he takes on a young protégé straight from the tough South Boston streets.

Ultimately, Robin questions whether she is truly the girl of Tony’s dreams. Is she the woman God has made for him? In taking her on as a wife, would she act as helpmeet or poison apple? In truly loving Tony, would it be better to bind herself to him for all eternity or return his freedom? When her nightmares return in full force, they remind Robin of an even deeper and more terrifying prospect. Will she give in to her insecurities and cancel Boston’s “Royal Wedding” for good? Or, with God’s guidance, will Tony sacrifice everything to prove to his beloved Robin her true worth?

Lena Dooley Nelson

Price: FREE

Maggie’s Journey isn’t your typical romance. The title does the book justice. This is about the journey Maggie takes and what she learns as she travels it. It’s a sweet story of misunderstandings, pride and forgiveness.

Joseh N. Costello

A girl who’s been lied to her whole life…

Near her eighteenth birthday, Margaret Lenora Caine finds a chest hidden in the attic containing proof that she was adopted. The daughter of wealthy merchants in Seattle, she feels betrayed both by her real parents and by the ones who raised her.

Maggie desires a place where she belongs. But her mother’s constant criticism and reminders that she doesn’t fit the mold of a young woman of their social standing have already created tension in their home. With the discovery of the family secret, all sense of her identity is lost.

When Maggie asks to visit her grandmother in Arkansas, her father agrees on the condition that she take her Aunt Georgia as a chaperone and his young partner, Charles Stanton, as protection on the journey. Will she discover who she really is and, more importantly, what truly matters most in life?

Jenna's Cowboy (The Callahans of Texas Book #1): A Novel

Jenna’s Cowboy (The Callahans of Texas Book #1): A Novel

Sharon Gillenwater

Price: FREE

I am glad that this book promises to be the first in a series called “The Callahans of Texas”. I look forward to reading more exciting and romantic fiction about these characters that emulate such admirable Christian behavior. I am also a sucker for patriotism, so this novel (and future books in this series) will find themselves on my keeper shelf.

Stacey

Jenna Callahan has a young son and rewarding work on her father’s ranch. She’s content. But she never expected to see Nate Langley back in town – the first guy she noticed, the one her father sent away all those years ago. And she never thought the attraction they felt would be as strong as ever.

Jenna’s cowboy has some healing of his own to do, though, after two tours of duty in the armed forces. With the help of good friends, strong faith, and a loving family, he hopes to put the horrors of the past behind him–and become the man Jenna deserves.

With an emphasis on simple acts of love, Jenna’s Cowboy gives romance readers what they want most: a love story with a Texas touch.

Muffin Tin Meals

Maggie Ingles

Price: FREE

I absolutely love these recipes! They are SO easy! I haven’t had much time to cook lately as I’m in college, but these are super quick to do. I stuff all the ingredients in the muffin tins and pop them in the oven and basically forget about them until the timer goes off. The bananas and yogurt recipe is something I’d NEVER have thought to do and it was surprisingly delicious! It’s become my quick go-to dessert when I want to be “good” since I pre-make them and leave them in the freezer til I have a craving.

Soya_Smurf

Cut cleanup time in half or get rid of it all together! Cooking with a muffin tin eliminates a lot of steps and cuts out grease. Using paper liners makes cleanup even faster.

Cut out dangerous fumes from your cooking routine. Nonstick pans have a dangerous chemical coating called perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) that can be fatal to birds; most other pets and even negatively affects those with respiratory illnesses. Using a coating-free muffin tin cuts those dangers out.

  • Make portion perfect meals.
  • Know exactly how much you are eating.
  • Cook for the week ahead.

Leftover portions are easy to pack up and freeze for another day because they are so small. Instead of thawing out large amounts of food, just heat up what you are going to eat.

How to eBay in Real Life (For a Living)

How to eBay in Real Life (For a Living)

Jason Richner (Author), Sam Rovin (Author)

Price: FREE

This is a great little “how to” handbook for everything you need to know to turn your trash into treasure. So many tips I would have never thought of. I just wish I had known about it before the garage sale I just had. Oh well, now I won’t ever make that mistake again thanks to this!

Castletini

I never actually believed I’d be my own boss.

Sure, I’d vaguely thought about it from time to time. Like everybody else, I’m sure I’ve gotten swept up in some dully romantic daydream about one day calling the shots, perhaps wearing the cliché hard hat in some factory directing imaginary labor forces with my free hand, a coffee in my other while looking over blueprints. Clearly, I didn’t delve very deeply into that imaginary scenario.
No, it’s safe to say I always thought I’d be working for somebody else. Punching in, lunching out, and crunching heads all day.

What I didn’t realize back then was that one day I’d be working from home. That I’d have no employees. That my customers would live all over the world. That I’d make a decent living selling things I enjoyed dealing with. That I’d be making money at all hours of the day, even while I slept, even while I write this sentence. (I just sold two toys to a gentleman in France for $40 plus $34.68 shipping, no joke. Just happened).

Truthfully, I’m already bothered that this sounds like an infomercial pitch, something that’s too good to be true, so, with that in mind, I’ll do my best to keep this completely authentic and filled with real life examples; stories that you can easily absorb now and recall later when you’re in charge and need guidance. There may be some redundancies, but a lot of what lies ahead takes gut instinct, most of which you’re born with – and I’ll help you tune in to that – and the rest is just learning what you care about, what interests you’ve developed over the years and what talents you didn’t know you’d soon be using.

I am just a regular Jack who found a way to be in charge of my own paycheck. Along the way there are going to be many way ups and some pretty low downs, it’s not all sugar and spice. But here’s how I became my own boss. And now I’m going to help you do it too.

Sudoku For The Soul: 40 Puzzling Parables For Fun, Conversation, and Private Musing

Sudoku For The Soul: 40 Puzzling Parables For Fun, Conversation, and Private Musing

Thomas Swanson (Author, Editor)

Price: FREE

This book is a great starting point for accessing the rich tradition of communication through parables (a sorrowfully absent medium for us moderns). Good for personal contemplation as well as stimulating conversation with others. Highly recommended.

Ryan Beck

Do you like Sudoku? Crosswords? Logic Games? Riddles? Fun, mental challenges?

Many people do, but very few of these people have tried Parables. Have you?

Instead of trying to convince you that parables are an unexplored realm of fun, delight, and mental challenge that much of the history of the world and many cultures even now know and enjoy (but which much of the developed world ignores!), why not get the free sample and try a few? The proof is in the pudding. Get the sample and give it a try.

If you need a little additional spark to do so, here are a few more thoughts just for you:

Parables are designed to “fit” in your mind; they have a relatively small boundary. Everything needed to understand a parable is contained within the parable (remember that!). A parable is a small world unto itself, which is intended to be “bite-sized” or, rather, “mind-sized.” The entire thing can be mentally chewed on without any stress or strain. It is challenging but refreshing. Dive into the small world and look around. Don’t stress, but relax. Just sit there and chew on it, and see what you think.

Some parables need to be “figured out” in the sense of attempting to answer the question “what is the point?” Others simply need to be chewed, to let your mind wander and wonder about the scenario presented, and ideas will come to you. It may remind you of something. You may agree, you may disagree. You might want to mentally re-write it or change something.

There are a range of kinds and styles of parables presented here in this unique collection. But unlike some kinds of parables, there is no background knowledge needed. Each parable stands alone, and, with sufficient, relaxed mental chewing, you should be able to “get” them well enough. Though of course, they may come back to you in the future as your experience grows, and you’ll gain new insight into the stories, ideas, or interesting observations you’ll find here.

Remember, slow down and chew. They are not races. They will hopefully be fun for your heart, gum for your mind, and “sudoku” for your soul. Check it out and enjoy!

The College Student's Guide To: Picking the Right Major

The College Student’s Guide To: Picking the Right Major

Jack Westerfil

Price: FREE

ABOUT THE BOOK

Once you are in college, everything changes, whether youre an 18-year-old living away from home for the first time, or youre attending as an older student. Even the way you talk to people changes when youre in college. Instead of just saying hello and asking your name and where you’re from, now there is a new question that people will ask you time and time again: “What’s your major?”

In college, your major becomes one of your defining characteristics. It says something about your interests, your personality, your hobbies, your talents and skills, and, most importantly, what kind of career path you will be choosing after you graduate.

If you do not already have a major, you might come to dread this question. In fact, the question often extends past the student body and becomes a common topic of conversation with everybody you bump into. Once people find out you are in college, the first thing they want to know is your chosen field of subject. Saying “I haven’t decided yet” over and over can get a little old, but don’t despair. Although you may envy those lucky people who come into college with a clear path in mind and instantly know what they want to do with their lives, you are not alone.

EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK

6. Research the idea of a double major. If you really cannot decide between two majors and the decision is causing you undue stress, consider taking a little extra time to walk away with two different majors. With this double threat, you will be able to pursue jobs in two different fields and have a little more freedom when it comes to deciding what you want to do with your life. Since double majors typically take more time to complete, be sure you are prepared for the extra time in school and have the right financial and emotional resources to manage the extra stresses and obligations. But for those who are truly dedicated to two different fields of study, a double major is a great way to realize all your dreams at once.

7. Remember that your minor counts, too. Being able to declare a minor can help you compromise between two very different interests. If you really want to pursue a career in Computer Science, but you are also interested in math, see if you can pursue one field of study as a minor degree. A minor degree lets you explore a field you are interested in without having to fulfill the same number of hours and requirements as a major.

GUMBO GOES DOWNTOWN Homeless and Runaway Children's Picture Book (Fully Illustrated Version)

GUMBO GOES DOWNTOWN Homeless and Runaway Children’s Picture Book (Fully Illustrated Version)

Carol Talley (Author), Itoko Maeno (Illustrator)

Price: FREE

The great thing about this book is the guide at the end to help children of all ages critically think about the message of the story and how it relates to life. Sample questions at the end are a great way to start a discussion, and can easily be adapted for most age groups. The illustrations are terrific, and lend a sense of motion to the book. Adults would benefit from reading the guide at the end first, and then sharing with children.

Genevieve

Picture Book for reading with the younger child – ages 3-6

SELF ESTEEM – DISCOVERING HAPPINESS WHERE YOU ARE

Running away from home! Who doesn’t sometimes dream of it? To go someplace else, to be somebody else!

Here is the story of a loveable mutt named Gumbo, who – longing to be SOMEBODY – abandons his watchdog duties and follows the streetcar tracks downtown to the historic French Quarter of New Orleans. There he discovers a world of new experiences and meets a colorful cast of canine characters, including a dancing poodle and self-appointed tour guide named Pompon, the blue-ribboned Champion Stella de Chateau Blanc, the fearsome Catahoula Hound and, finally, a nameless, homeless dog who visits Gumbo on the moonlit levee like a sad dream.

On his journey, Gumbo learns that the identity he seeks is not to be found in new places, however exciting, or in new acquaintances, however distinguished. For Gumbo, the road to self-esteem leads right back home, where he loves and is loved and where he is, after all, somebody very important.

Author Carol Talley, a former resident of New Orleans, returned to this picturesque city, tracing Gumbo’s journey down St. Charles Avenue and through the French Quarter to Jackson Square and the riverfront.

From Gumbo’s own shotgun house with its rose-bedecked chain-link fence to the sun-drenched Mississipi with its mighty ships and paddle wheelers, Illustrator Itoko Maeno has captured the kaleidoscopic magic of New Orleans for this classic tale of running away and returning.

Gumbo thinks he leads a pretty dull life. Maybe that’s why he decides one day to run away from home, to leave his watchdog duties and go Downtown. Children will delight in following Gumbo as he finds adventure aplenty in the historic French Quarter and meets a delightful cast of canine characters. And they will learn-as Gumbo does-that wherever he goes and whomever he meets, everyone seems to be looking for the very thing he has left behind-a place called home.

This is such a popular book in New Orleans, especially since the tragedy of Katrina. With its beautiful descriptions of the famous spots in the city, it has become especially dear to tourists and those with happy memories of fabulous New Orleans.

GUMBO GOES DOWNTOWN will help young readers examine the importance of their own homes, and help them explore sources of inner contentment.

A SURPRISE and added bonus is the “Enrichment Information” which includes lots of facts about Louisiana, the Mississippi River, New Orleans, a ShotGun House, the French Quarter, Jackson Square, The St. Charles Streetcar, and Gumbo (not the main character, but the spicy stew made with shrimp, crabs, oysters, chicken, ham, or even rabbit or squirrel! Seasoned with thyme, bayleaf, chilies, and cayenne pepper and thickened with okra or file, it is delicious!) This is fascinating detail that did not make it into the story itself, but is very rich in colorful descriptions of many famous places in and around New Orleans.

A second big plus is the “Letter to Parents and Educators” which includes many relevant questions and comments to facilitate conversation with the young reader about the message of the story…the importance of home…right where you are. So even though on the surface, this is just an engaging story for children, it is also truly helpful in a real way.

Animals In The Shower (An Interactive Book About Rainforest Animals)

Mary Ann Rogers

Excellent work, Mary Ann. I really like how you make your books interactive. The interactive aspect to this book allows you to read the text and look at a photo, and then respond to a question. If you miss the question, the book prompts you to review the material (text) again, and try to answer the question correctly. Very nice feature.
