How She Does It: An everywoman’s guide to breaking old rules, getting creative, and making time for work in your actual, everyday life

Anne Bogel

This book is well written, practical, and filled with encouragement. There are short stories of Carrie who blogs, Karen who owns a shop, and Christina who is a therapist. Each one lets you peek a bit behind the curtain to see how other women make things work with employment. Don’t assume this book is only for women. Men can get some great info out of this book too. The authors husband wrote a few pages for the book and I really thought this was a fantastic addition to the book.

J. woods

Today’s working woman looks a lot like you.

She’s a:
• stay-at-home mom, working on her passion at naptime
• a part-time professional sharing childcare with her husband
• a full-time creative planning a future on her own schedule

She’s a woman – like you – with the opportunity to find fulfilling and profitable work without the mother guilt of previous generations. The possibilities are endless for today’s woman in this shifting work place – but the roadmap for getting there hasn’t quite been written.

Until now.

In How She Does It, author Anne Bogel unpacks these trends in family & work culture, and gets to the core of HOW you can make your work goals fit into your unique family situation.

Inside, you’ll find the personal success stories of 30 women who found – by playing to their unique strengths– solutions that really work for their families.

How She Does It will show you how to:
• Explore options for the shape of your work life, and plan ahead even before there’s a husband or kids in the picture.
• Abandon old limitations on home life demands leftover from previous generations.
• Embrace this changing landscape where it’s easier than ever to find time to work and be there for your family.
• Squeeze in more work hours without increasing childcare.
• Overcome common barriers like a tentative husband or a seemingly inflexible boss.
• Set priorities for your personal, budgetary, and family goals.
• Create a plan for your unique family situation.
• Adapt your work and family rhythms to the changing seasons of life.
• Meet other women like you who have walked the path of blending work and family–and succeeded.

How She Does It is the roadmap you’ve been looking for – packed to the brim with the creative solutions, encouragement, and resources you need to make a plan that works in the actual, every day life of your family.

Upstairs at the White House: My Life with the First Ladies

Upstairs at the White House: My Life with the First Ladies

J. B. West

I have read this book many, many times – in fact, this is my third copy of the book. I enjoy Mr West’s revelations about the day-to-day operations in the White House and the people who have called it home since FDR.

T. Fenner

A fascinating behind-the-scenes look at life on Pennsylvania Avenue with America’s first families, by the man who spent nearly three decades in their midst

J. B. West, chief usher of the White House, directed the operations and maintenance of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue—and coordinated its daily life—at the request of the president and his family. He directed state functions; planned parties, weddings and funerals, gardens and playgrounds, and extensive renovations; and with a large staff, supervised every activity in the presidential home. For twenty-eight years, first as assistant to the chief usher, then as chief usher, he witnessed national crises and triumphs, and interacted daily with six consecutive presidents and first ladies, their parents, children and grandchildren, and houseguests—including friends, relatives, and heads of state.

In Upstairs at the White House, West offers an absorbing and novel glimpse at America’s first families, from the Roosevelts to the Kennedys andthe Nixons. Alive with anecdotes ranging from the quotidian (Lyndon B. Johnson’s showerheads) to the tragic (the aftermath of John F. Kennedy’s assassination), West’s book is an enlightening and rich account of the American history that took place just behind the Palladian doors of the North Portico.

We’ve been duped to think that breakfast variety equates to many different colors of cereal boxes festooned with various cartoon characters or health claims.

In reality, all those hundreds of different boxes contain strikingly similar ingredients and probably don’t do much for our bodies in terms of varying our nutritional intake. They certainly don’t give us a leg up on our 5-a-day fruits and vegetables, don’t offer healthy and satiating fats, and often include questionable ingredients that aren’t usually found in an average kitchen or in nature.

The recipes are nearly all gluten-free and nut-free and at least two-thirds are either dairy-free, egg-free or grain-free, and the book even includes another 50+ resources online to help you achieve real food independence.

Sick of the “same old thing” at lunch?

Tired of the drudgery of packing lunches every day?

Lacking inspiration and tempted to turn to packaged convenience foods?

You know you don’t want to rely on school lunch to nourish your kids, but managing a real food packed lunch every day can be mind-boggling, if not refrigerator-boggling. For families who don’t use much bread, whether Paleo, gluten-free, or just “Uh oh, we’re out of bread,” a sandwich-free lunch gets even trickier.

The Healthy Lunch Box is packed with strategies to streamline your packing process, stock your pantry with emergency backups for your backups, and send healthy, delicious food in the lunch box, no matter how old your eater is. And there’s not a sandwich in sight.

From children to adults, school kids to homeschooling families, everyone needs to eat lunch — even if you’re only going to have 10 minutes to do it (the average time a school student realistically has at the table).

Author Katie Kimball’s comprehensive “10 Secrets to Successful Lunch Packing” makes this much more than a recipe book; it’s a battle plan to fight processed foods and “ditch the ‘wich.” With over a dozen ways to deliver protein and veggies to one’s mouth without a slice of bread, you’ll be flying along “sandwich-free” in no time.

You’ll never run out of ideas again with these 45 lunchtime-friendly recipes, over 100 references for more information, and the massive “What Should I Pack” checklist at your fingertips. Suited for anyone who eats, The Healthy Lunch Box is the tool you need to stick to your real food goals.

Recipes include:
* Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken
* Pizza and Greek Meat Muffins
* Potato Wedges
* Cucumber Dill Beet Salad
* Rice and Veggie Muffins
* Crepes, Dosas, Pancakes, Tortillas, and Crackers, all with gluten-free and grain-free options
* Homemade dressings and dips
* Bacon Parmesan Popcorn
* Granola bars, grain-free bars and muffins, & more!

In The Healthy Lunch Box, the lessons go way beyond the box. You’ll learn simple ways to encourage responsibility and communication, how to pack a waste-free lunch, what to do about allergies in the classroom and even how to cart real food along when you’re on an airplane or long car trip.

If you want to avoid commercially produced lunches and processed snack foods, The Healthy Lunch Box will make it happen.

Supermoms pack super lunches – Go sandwich-free!

Surprised by Hope

Surprised by Hope

N. T. Wright

In short, this is N.T. Wright at his best. A foremost expert on the resurrection of Jesus and the implications of Christ’s defeat of death on eschatology and future hope, Wright has given us a clear, readable, and deeply Biblical picture of Christian hope.

Jonathan Pedrone

In Surprised by Hope: Rethinking Heaven, the Resurrection, and the Mission of the Church, top-selling author and Anglican bishop, N.T. Wright tackles the biblical question of what happens after we die and shows how most Christians get it wrong. We do not “go to” heaven; we are resurrected and heaven comes down to earth–a difference that makes all of the difference to how we live on earth. Following N.T. Wright’s resonant exploration of a life of faith in Simply Christian, the award-winning author whom Newsweek calls “the world’s leading New Testament scholar” takes on one of life’s most controversial topics, a matter of life, death, spirituality, and survival for everyone living in the world today.

Second Time Around: A Christian Romance Novel (The Lewis Legacy Series, Book Two)

JoAnn Durgin

JoAnn’s stories are THE most romantic, inspiring, AND fun stories that I’ve read in a very long time! I absolutely cannot wait until her next book is released!

NoelaN

God’s Time is the Right Time. Marc Thompson is on top of the world-a newlywed with a beautiful wife, the owner of a thriving Boston sports advertising agency, and a century-old home they’re renovating in the suburbs. Then the unthinkable happens. Two months after the wedding, Marc sits in a hospital emergency waiting room after Natalie suffers a horrible fall. One shock follows another. Not only does his wife remember nothing of their life together, but now he has a personal timeline to reconnect with her-seven months. Marc’s gold wedding band mocks him, a glaring reminder of a promise broken by a rotting basement stair and his own negligence.

His renowned psychologist advises him to court his wife again-a daunting task the first time around. Then Marc’s pastor suggests he call Sam and Lexa Lewis of TeamWork Missions, a ministry dear to Natalie’s heart. Determined to help her reclaim her life, the young groom makes great strides until a ghost from the past surfaces, opening fresh wounds and threatening to destroy it all. With Natalie’s trust shattered and Marc’s faith wavering, they head to Milestone Ranch outside Helena, Montana, with TeamWork for a two-week work camp. But instead of romancing his wife in the freezing November temperatures with warm fires and shared sweet moments, he’s out in the cold and back at square one. Even if Natalie recovers her lost memories, will she forgive him? If not, can Marc come to terms with his deepest fear-the failure of his marriage? You’ll root for Marc and Natalie as they fight against the odds and discover that surrendering all at the throne of grace doesn’t mean failure. It’s simply called faith. And it might be the only way to finding their way back to one another . . . the second time around.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Second Time Around is JoAnn Durgin’s second published novel, the follow-up to the popular Awakening featuring the adventures of Sam Lewis and Lexa Clarke and their lively TeamWork Missions volunteers.

the characters come to life in such a way, it will be unlike any other novel you have read.

Winsome and Romantic–the Perfect Summer Read!

When Meg Cole’s father dies unexpectedly, she becomes the majority shareholder of his oil company and the single inheritor of his fortune. Though Meg is soft-spoken and tenderhearted–more interested in art than in oil–she’s forced to return home to Texas and to Whispering Creek Ranch to take up the reins of her father’s empire.

The last thing she has the patience or the sanity to deal with? Her father’s thoroughbred racehorse farm. She gives its manager, Bo Porter, six months to close the place down.

Bo’s determined to resent the woman who’s decided to rob him of his dream. But instead of anger, Meg evokes within him a profound desire to protect. The more time he spends with her, the more he longs to overcome every obstacle that separates them–her wealth, his unworthiness, her family’s outrage–and earn the right to love her.

But just when Meg begins to realize that Bo might be the one thing on the ranch worth keeping, their fragile bond is viciously broken by a force from Meg’s past. Can their love–and their belief that God can work through every circumstance–survive?

This was my first Ronie Kendig read and I loved it! I was drawn into Max’s pain from the start and rooted for him as the story progressed. I liked the idea of this covert team that would go in and rescue those who governments had all but written off as dead or not important enough to matter. And I liked how she interwove the stories of Max, his wife, and the missionaries. Powerfully done. Couldn’t put it down. Can’t wait to read Digitalis!

The Vow: The True Events that Inspired the Movie

Kim Carpenter, Krickitt Carpenter

The Carpenters are devout Christians and believe that God uses them infinitely through their incredible story. Throughout the book, the entire Carpenter family leans on God through good times and bad, with heartbreaking honesty. Their story is one of doubting God’s plan, but having faith that God does indeed have a plan.

Lavish Bookshelf

Life as Kim and Krickitt Carpenter knew it was shattered beyond recognition on November 24, 1993. Two months after their marriage, a devastating car wreck left Krickitt with a massive head injury and in a coma for weeks.

When she finally awoke, she had no idea who Kim was. With no recollection of their relationship and while Krickitt experienced personality changes common to those who suffer head injuries, Kim realized the woman he had married essentially died in the accident.

And yet, against all odds, but through the common faith in Christ that sustained them, Kim and Krickitt fell in love all over again. Even though Kim stood by Krickitt through the darkest times a husband can ever imagine, he insists, “I’m no hero. I made a vow.”

Now available in trade paper with a new chapter and photo insert, The Vow is the true story that inspired the major motion picture of the same name starring Rachel McAdams (The Notebook), Channing Tatum (Dear John), Sam Neill (Jurassic Park), and Academy Award winner Jessica Lange.
