Milk Soapmaking: The Smart and Simple Guide to Making Lovely Milk Soap from Scratch with Cow Milk, Goat Milk, Buttermilk, Cream, Coconut Milk, or Any Other Animal or Plant Milk

Anne L Watson

******#1 AMAZON.COM BESTSELLER IN SOAP MAKING (DECEMBER 2013)******

SPECIAL NOTE! — ANNE WILL PERSONALLY ANSWER ANY QUESTION OF YOURS AFTER READING THIS BOOK. ASK ON HER WEB SITE, AND YOU’LL NORMALLY HEAR BACK WITHIN HOURS!

Do you love the feel of milk soaps but shy away from the cost? Are you looking for a special kind of gift you can make yourself? Or do you already make soap and want to try something new?

Anne L. Watson’s “Smart Soapmaking” was the first book based on modern techniques that eliminate the drudgery and guesswork from home soapmaking. Now, by popular demand, she continues her soapmaking revolution with the first practical, comprehensive book on making milk soap from scratch.

Experience the rich, soothing, luxurious feel of milk soap you’ve made yourself. Your skin will thank you for it.

/////////////////////////////////////////////////

Anne L. Watson is the author of the wildly popular and widely acclaimed beginners book “Smart Soapmaking” and its companions, “Milk Soapmaking” and “Smart Lotionmaking.” She has made soap professionally under the company name Soap Tree, and before her retirement was a historic preservation architecture consultant. Anne’s other published books include “Baking with Cookie Molds” and several novels. Anne, her husband, Aaron, and their cat, Skeeter, live in Friday Harbor, Washington.

/////////////////////////////////////////////////

“Beautiful in its simplicity. . . . A definitive book for experienced as well as beginning milk soapers.” — Rebekah Bailey, The Original Soap Dish, South Whitley, Indiana

“An easy to read and understand book that will take the mystery out of milk-based soapmaking and debunk some of the myths surrounding it. It contains some great basic formulas to get you started making milk soaps of any kind, and fuel to let your imagination run wild when you are ready to formulate your own creations. A good source of information for new soapmakers, and also suitable for more experienced soapmakers who want to start making milk soaps but thought it would be too difficult.” — Amanda Guilfoyle, Bodelicious Bath & Body Products, Ipswich, Queensland, Australia

“As always, Anne is up to her usual excellence. This book demystifies milk soapmaking so everyone can have the luxury of a truly decadent bar of soap *easily*. LOVE this book!!!” — Susan Kennedy, Oregon Trail Soaps, Rogue River, Oregon

“If you have an interest in milk soaps, this is the book for you. . . . Debunks much of the popular wisdom that may have discouraged some soapmakers.” — Kevin M. Dunn, Author, “Scientific Soapmaking” and “Caveman Chemistry”

“As uber-soapmaker Anne L. Watson demonstrates, milk soaps made properly are [rightfully] well-known for a quality of luxurious buttery softness that is undeniable. . . . Anne once again acquits herself ably as a scholar of the suds and a natural communicator.” — Wishing Willow (blog)

“Enthusiastically recommended.” — Midwest Book Review, Feb. 2009, “Reviewer’s Choice”

“Full of information that milk soapers, whether novice or experienced, could use to make better milk soaps. Anne writes in a conversational style that made me feel as though I were sitting down with her in her kitchen. . . . Anne details what seems to be everything there is to know about the subject. Rather than simply offering her opinions and favorite practices, Anne did extensive testing and experimenting, learning how to make the best milk soap bars that could be made. Soapmakers will be impressed with the amount and quality of Anne’s research and observations. . . . That leaves the question: Can a neophyte made good cold-process milk soap? I now say yes, with the caveat they have ‘Milk Soapmaking’ in hand.” — Beth Byrne, “The Saponifier,” Sept.-Oct. 2010

Joyce Meyer

This devotional; drawing from How to Hear From God, Knowing God Intimately, and The Power Of Simple Prayer shows the reader through a daily reminder, how God speaks through their own thoughts and feelings, their dreams, and the words of other people. Joyce Meyer reveals the ways in which God delivers His word and the benefits of asking God for the sensitivity to hear His voice. Joyce asks the question, “Are you listening?” and shares how to do just that…on a daily basis.

What Keeps You Up at Night?: How to Find Peace While Chasing Your Dreams

What Keeps You Up at Night?: How to Find Peace While Chasing Your Dreams

Pete Wilson

“I just can’t ever seem to shut off my brain and rest.”

It’s easy to feel paralyzed by uncertainty. We want our questions answered, our decisions affirmed, and our plans applauded. But life doesn’t come with an instruction manual and rarely follows a straight path. How would your life change if you learned to lean into uncertainty instead of waiting on the sidelines for just the right moment or opportunity?

The paradox of faith is that you can’t activate it until you act on it. Trust compels us to move forward. If you don’t, then you’ll be left with a laundry list of unrealized expectations. You were meant to experience a life of abundance and blessing, not frustration and failure.

Clarity only comes when we look back. So if you wait until you have clarity, you’ll never find it. Instead, you must move forward even when you feel scared to death. That is when you’ll be able to turn the fears that keep you up at night into fuel for your journey.

If you want to experience a breakthrough in your life, then you must find a new cadence that will provide the strength you need to move forward in spite of your doubts, questions, and fears. The rhythm of faith is not hinged upon our circumstances but our willingness to surrender.

In his most insightful work since the debut bestseller, Plan B, Pete Wilson provides a plan for living that will lead you to a place of peace that you’ve only dreamed about and a life filled with meaning, significance, and satisfaction.

A Fellowship of Differents: Showing the World God's Design for Life Together

A Fellowship of Differents: Showing the World God’s Design for Life Together

Scot McKnight

In this compelling book, Scot McKnight shares his personal experience in the church as well as his study of the Apostle Paul to answer this significant question: What is the church supposed to be?

For most of us the church is a place we go to on Sunday to hear a sermon or to participate in worship or to partake in communion or to fellowship with other Christians. Church is all contained within one or two hours on Sunday morning.

The church the Apostle Paul talks about is designed by God to be a fellowship of difference—how people differ socially—and differents—how people differ culturally. God did not design the church to be a two-hour experience on Sunday but a mixture of people from all across the map and spectrum: men and women, rich and poor, Caucasians or African Americans, and Mexican Americans, Latin Americans, Asian Americans, and Indian Americans, and a mixture of people with varying personalities and tastes. The church McKnight grew up in was a fellowship of sames and likes. There was almost no variety in his church. White folks, same beliefs about everything, same tastes in music and worship and sermons and lifestyle. Because of his experience, he writes incisively and compellingly.

The church is God’s world-changing social experiment of bringing unlikes and differents to the table to share life with one another as a new kind of family. When this happens we show to the world what love, justice, peace, reconciliation, and life together is designed by God to be. The church is God’s show-and-tell for the world to see how God wants us to live as a family.

So Beautiful: Divine Design for Life and the Church

So Beautiful: Divine Design for Life and the Church

Leonard Sweet

More than 50 years ago scientists made a remarkable discovery, proclaiming, “We have found the secret of life … and it’s so pretty!” The secret was the discovery that life is helixical, two strands wound around a single axis—what most of us know today as the model for DNA.

Over the course of his ministry, author Leonard Sweet has discovered that this divine design also informs God’s blueprint for the church. In this seminal work, he shares the woven strands that form the church: missional, relational, and incarnational. Sweet declares that this secret is not just pretty, but beautiful. In fact, So Beautiful!

Using the poignant life of John Newton as a touchstone, Sweet calls for the re-union of these three essential, complementary strands of the Christian life. Far from a novel idea, Sweet shows how this structure is God’s original intent, and shares the simply beautiful design for His church.

Mark of Evil (The End Series Book 4)

Tim LaHaye

Economies have collapsed, freedom has been suppressed, and peace is a distant memory. The world is falling apart.

Joshua Jordan’s protégé Ethan March, along with Jimmy Louder and Rivka Reuban, have been left behind in a world that is rapidly coming under the complete influence of the Antichrist.

Technology is growing by leaps and bounds with BID-Tag implants, robotic police units, and drone-bots flying overhead . . . all designed to control and dominate those who resist the Antichrist’s reign of evil. As Biblical prophecy is fulfilled each new day, Ethan and the others in the Remnant struggle to eat, to procure necessary goods, and to avoid the Global Alliance—in short, to survive.

But when the forces of evil attempt to pervert the world’s most powerful information system to their own sinister ends, eliminating everyone who gets in their way, it’s up to Ethan and the Remnant to subvert their dark ambitions.

From New York Times best-selling author Tim LaHaye, creator and co-author of the world-renowned Left Behind books, and Craig Parshall, Mark of Evil is the final thrilling chapter to The End series.
