Daughter of Joy (Brides of Culdee Creek, Book 1)

Kathleen Morgan

Price:FREE

This is book is excellent. The characters are complex and believable. The basic storyline may have been spun hundreds of times but this by far outshines all the ones I’ve read, and I’ve read a lot. When you get to a book like this you realize this is “Fine dining”! Ms Morgan obviously incorporated and instilled her own suffering into a beautiful book.

Mary: When Love Came To Town

Lianne Blanch

Price:FREE

This is a wonderful book if you want to learn and undersatnd the BIBLE. Sometimes it’s hard to understand and comprehend the word of GOD, but reading faith based books along with reading your bible gives you a better picture and insight on the stories of the bible.

Kim L. Dudley

When Love comes to town….
A young woman, transformed by God, embarks on an epic journey…

Mary Magdalene has had some bad press in recent years. However, well before The Da Vinci Code—in fact, more than eight hundred years before—a little book was published called ‘The Life of Saint Mary Magdalene and of Her Sister Saint Martha’.

That book, retold here in modern form, is the pure, godly story of Mary’s early life, her time with Jesus, and the traditional account of her life after Jesus’ ascension.

Warm, tender, and full of insight, ‘Mary’ delivers a resounding rebuttal to the overflow of recent speculation regarding Mary Magdalene’s identity.

In her debut novel, author Lianne Blanch draws from ‘The Life of Saint Mary Magdalene and of her Sister Saint Martha’, as well as other sources from Provence, the Bible, and additional texts that portray Mary Magdalene in a light that has been long accepted throughout history: a saintly figure and one of the first disciples of Jesus’ teachings.

Heartfelt and enlightening, ‘Mary’ is a fresh perspective, a moving portrait of one of Jesus’ original followers and her inspirational life journey.

Lianne Blanch became interested in the French legends about Mary, Martha, and Lazarus when she and her husband spent three glorious months living in the Provencal town of Arles. Lianne began studying creative writing after the birth of her two children. ‘Mary: When Love Came To Town’ is her first novel.

77 Ways to Get Your Kids to Help at Home

Judy H. Wright

Price:FREE

I have been privileged to be in many of Judy Wright’s parenting classes. What you see is what you get. She is very non-judgmental and supportive of families all over the world. When I attend her classes or read her books, I know she will not preach and give me lots of guilt or theory, but sound practical advice.Often our family just needs a little nudge or change in what we already do. It really makes me reassured when I realize we are on the right track but just need to commit to following through.Thanks Judy for sharing your stories and experiences. Our family appreciates it.

Bethany W. Loosli

We want our children to grow and prosper but we also want some cooperation and help in keeping the house and chores done. Our children may very well think that our only goal is to get them to clean the laundry room and keep them from going to the mall. But in a parent’s mind, we see our goal as raising a responsible, trustworthy human being who will be able to stand on his own tow feet in life. (It sure helps to have a clean laundry room, however.)

For all of us in learning to do new jobs, we not only need to learn the new skill, methods and equipment but the determination to stick with it and gain efficiency, speed and accuracy. We all need help and the only way our children can learn good work habits is with parental assistance, supervision and cooperation. This takes much longer than simply drawing up a job chart or pasting a star on a forehead. It takes patience, patience and more patience.

If we look at this time spent teaching our children how to work as an irritant, both the parent and child lose. However, if we look upon this time as working closely with a good friend to insure his life long success, it will be time well spent.

There is no harder occupation in the world than parenting. We receive little or no training for it and our children try very hard to convince us that we are doing it incorrectly.

Respect is a two way street. Parents must walk it with their children. But sharing the journey to a successful contributing life with someone you love is one of the real joys of parenting.

However, I am convinced that as parents we need to stop feeling so guilty when we fall short of our own and others expectations. We are all doing the best we can with the information and experiences that we have right now. The fact that you attend training sessions or buy books such as this indicates that you are trying to do better. Our goal should be to be a better parent today than we were yesterday and to maintain an atmosphere in the home where mutual respect, support and love are present.

Good luck and God bless. You do an important work.

I’ll Have The Soup And Salad

Katherine Baldwin

Price:FREE

Have you ever opened a cookbook and felt an instant connection to the person behind the recipes? I felt as if I had stepped into the kitchen of this author…like I was comin over for a cup of warm soup on a rainy day. I loved the style and could feel the author’s heart behind every recipe and every instruction. I think this is especially important when it comes to a soup recipe book as I have the tendency to equate it with the food that cures all – illness, cold weather and even heartache on a certain day. I can’t wait to start with some of these recipes that are definitely new to me. I’ll be starting with the Rustic Black Bean Chili and soon after that the Chicken and Dumplings. Yummy! I’m also excited to test out the cornbread recipe which was an exciting bonus to the book and something I adore with soup of all types. Awesome!

Kaye T

When you envision the perfect bowl of steamy, delicious soup, what comes to mind? Is it the soup your mother or grandmother used to make from scratch using fresh vegetables and fresh beef or chicken simmered in a savory broth with just the right mixture of herbs and garlic? Maybe your dream soup is a thick, rich bowl of New England Clam Chowder. Or maybe it’s a nice can of condensed soup that you add a can of water to and Voila – you have your favorite soup. What? Scratch that last one because you won’t find any of that in this book. You will, however, find the first two.
