Yonah's collection of 1st grade arts and crafts for the year 2011. I collected it so she can have a portfolio of her works.

A very interesting stories about drugs, alcohol, child prostitution, gang, and self harm for young teens. Four teenagers was sent to Rehab to have another chance to fix their life well. It's quite interesting though. I became emotional while reading this book because each teenagers has a real life wild experience. Honestly, I need to stop for a moment and take a deep breath before I continue. It reminds me of my dark past that actually boost my confidence to accept changes in my life. It was difficult to do but I made it well. So if you have addiction that you can't control, seek help immediately before you lost all the people you love. This book will guide and enlighten you on what's going on inside and out of the Rehab also to get your self back on track and gain self respect. You can get a copy at Barnes and Noble for affordable price.

Amidst the darkness of turmoil there is hope.
Blake SOlomon had never heard such heart-wrenching stories until now. Jason gang-member, Rebecca a child prostitute, Matthew an African refugee, and Felicity a reckless rich kid, make up the newest group at Blake's Anchor Beach Rehabilitation Clinic.
Each have seen more than their share of tragedy and have reached a point of desperation where all hope seems lost. Leaving behind worlds tainted with drugs and alcohol, violence and abuse, self-harm, and street-life is easier said than done. Unexpectedly, these four young lives collide in extraordinary circumstances as they attempt to salvage any glimmer of strength and self-belief they have left.
Blake's battle to save all four from paths of certain self-destruction is the toughest he's ever faced. Is a quick-fix all he has to offer before feeding them back to the lions? Or will he keep his promise in helping them to face their demons?
It's a very inspirational life story from a well known spiritual speaker, Billy Graham. This book clearly explained on how to handle with acceptance the retirement age of every person in this world. To face the reality and understand the deep meaning on why people need to die. To remind everyone that life has an expiration date. This book will guide you on how to deal with aging. A very good reading material for all to help yourself as well as others to have a good understanding why life is so beautiful even though your old. You can get a copy from Barnes and Noble at affordable price.

"Growing old has been the greatest surprise of my life." says Billy Graham, known by many as God's Ambassador. "I would have never guessed what God had in store for me, and I know that as I am nearing home, He will not forsake me the last mile of the way."
In Nearing Home this man of faith - now in his nineties - explores the challenges of aging while gleaning foundational truths from Scripture. Billy Graham invites us to journey with him as he considers the golden years while anticipating the hope of being reunited with his wife, Ruth, in his heavenly home that eclipses this world.
"When granted many years of life, growing old in age is natural, but growing old with grace is a choice," says the author. "Growing older with grace is possible for all who will set their hearts and minds on the Giver of grace, the Lord Jesus Christ."
Join Billy Graham as he shares the challenges of fading strength but still standing strong in his commitment to finishing life well.

Guest post written by Mary Lewis

I know that it's really tempting to go out and buy all of these really cheap and trend pieces of clothing. But I really try to resist it. Plus, I think that it's important to not waste any clothing if you don't have to. People don't really think of it but that is just another way to be really wasteful. If a shirt is cheap, there's no use in reusing it as a way to help the environment.

My daughter loves to go and buy clothes like that, but I like to try and teach her that it's important to not do that because she couldn't create any more waste than she can help. I looked online to see if I could at least find some environmentally friendly clothing that she would love. When I was looking through that stuff, I ran across some info on internet providers in my zip code and after I looked through it a little bit I decided to change over our home service to one of them.

I actually found some really great organic cotton clothes that my daughter loved and I talked her into buying some of them. At least that's a good start!

Free Clothing Swap

Disabled American Veterans Hall #129

Contact person: Charly Mathews

586-739-5267 (during drop off or day of swap times)




This is a totally FREE event, with NO obligation to bring anything or take anything. It's called a "swap"

because so many people bring clothes they no longer need, and take what they DO want.


At home, sort and fold CLEAN clothes (clothes you wouldn't mind putting on your family to go out in public) by size into

boxes or bags. THEN, when you get to the swap, sort the clothes by size onto marked tables. Next comes the fun part.
Go to the tables with the size clothes you are looking for, and take what you need. Free of charge. No strings attached.

The organization will provide the bags for that day. One bag per family! This is the only way to keep the swap fair.

Some families are looking to clean out the clothes they no longer use, and they bring boxes of clothes in, sometimes leaving with just one or two "special" things. Other families are really in need of clothes, and come with little or nothing, but leave with a bag of clothes. Others bring what they took last season, for another family to take this time, and bring home another season's worth themselves to start the process again.

THIS IS FOR INDIVIDUALS ONLY ... NO charities, shelters, or resale.


Look for clothes you might like to bring. Wash, fold, and sort them by size. Then call all your friends and family and ask them to do the same ... and come alone or as a group to the swap! Clothes swapping are even more fun when you can share your great finds with friends.


All sizes of baby, kids, and adult clothing (including coats, shoes, and accessories). VERY lightly stained clothes are OK as some people don't mind these for work or play, or are talented at removing stains. However, all clothing MUST BE CLEAN, NO TEARS. Fabric and baby accessories are welcome.


Anyone dropping off clothing the day before the swap will receive a ticket to gain first access to the swap, between 10-11AM.

Tuesday, November 15, 2011 from 2:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. You can also call to make other arrangements for drop-offs prior to the swap

PLEASE NOTE: For safety reasons. All children must be supervised.

In the decades since Oprah became a media fixture, she has introduced the world to her best friend, her nutritionist, her interior designer, and her stylist. She has shared her favorite beauty products, her most cherished books, her philantropic endeavors, and her deepest secrets. In fact, there seems very little that Oprah is unwilling to share-particularly when it comes to the latest episodes in her never-ending spiritual journey.

New York Times best-selling author Stephen Mansfield traces the contours of Oprah's fascinating and influential life with a particular focus on Winfrey's quest for spiritual enlightenment. It is a well-publicized quest-one that features a caravan of experts, mystics, and gurus-all claiming to have a prescription for inner peace and personal well-being.

As the poster child for a generation of spiritual seekers and free-thinkers, Oprah has sent decades defining her spirituality as a form of empowerment that discourages absolutes and welcomes any ideas that appear useful, freely blending Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, and the Christianity of her troubled but formative youth.

Mansfield carefully reconstructs Oprah's life experiences and shows how they reflect our larger cultural journey. He also reveals why her spiritual discoveries have resonated so loudly among her fellow Baby Boomers and have secured her unprecedented influence in our adoring modern world. In so doing, Mansfield sheds light on the dangers of a spiritual journey fueled solely by the desire for self-actualization.

In the end, we find that the story of Oprah is, in fact, the story of us-of a generation desperately searching for something meaningful to believe in.

This book is about Oprah's biography and her spiritual beliefs. I found this book quite enlightening and engaging. Readers can relate to her spiritual life. If you're a big fan of Oprah and a christian, you must read this book. We all know that Oprah made a huge impact to everyone's life. She helped many lower income family, homeless and even lost people. She has a talent that brings smile to everyone. Even right now, she shared her experiences world wide. If your a follower of her, you know the Oprah's lifeclass. She's a wonderful woman with a good heart.

What can you do when life doesn't turn out like you planned?

How do you respond when your husband or wife tramples your emotions? When your boss fires you unexpectedly? When you lose your life's savings? When the child you've loved and prayed for turns his back on you and your values?

When disappointments like these smash their way into your life, you may want to scream, "How could God let this happen?"

But what if God didn't just "let it happen?" What if the things you call disappointments are really His appointments-events He is using to make you more like Christ? What if your circumstances are actually the flames of His grace, intended to melt and burn away the undesirable elements in your life, leaving you pure and radiant-like refined silver?
You can be defeated by life's unaviodable disappointments, or you can become stronger because of them.

Life's disapppointments can send you on a dangerous downward spiral into discouragement, depression, or even despair. But in this eye-opening book, Kay Arthur guides you to biblical truths that will help you break that cycle and instead embrace disappointment as the cleansing fire God uses to make you-as silver refined-a reflection of His goodness.

I was excited the moment I received this book. I like to read it right away because its about life disappointments. Honestly, I have plenty of that so I was wondering this book could help me. Unfortunately, when I read the book, I wasn't impress enough. I dont know but the book doesn't touch my heart that well. But I was lucky to received a copy of this from Waterbrook Multnomah Publishing group. You can get a copy of this at Barnes and Noble.


Camilla Fox is alive, having been rescued from a near fatal snowstorm after leaving her home to escape the Mormon faith she no longer calls her own. Now, as she regains her strength under the personal care of United States Army Colonel Charles Brandon, thoughts of the two children she left behind floor her mind, threatening to break her heart.

Camilla is desperate to reunite with her daughters and does not want them to grow up under Mormon teachings, but she cannot provide a home for them on her own, and she will not share her husband with a sister wife. As spring arrives, Camilla returns to Salt Lake City ready to fight...and she won't back down until she's brought her children safely to the other side.

What is the essence of being a woman? What is the importance of a woman in your life? How can you make your wife happy? Now a days, marriage doesn't last long. In this generation, the couple got married yesterday, then after a month they're divorce. Isn't that shocking to you? Well,it's so hard to find the perfect match in life. This book is another story of couple who disagree in many things. The biggest problems they encountered are the religion, betrayal and lack of happiness. Find out how Camilla Fox, as a woman, wife and mother manage and struggle in her trials in life.

"Tyndale House Publishers has provided Me with a complimentary copy of this book or ARC."

I rarely ever watch shows live when they come on TV. I'm a working mom that's always running off to things like soccer games when I'm not at work or on a business trip. So I watch a whole lot of On Demand TV and DVDs of TV shows to catch up with shows that I like to watch. I recently started watching the show Sons of Anarchy On Demand this summer when I was bored and looking for something to watch. Well, I got really hooked on it and after that I decided to rent all of the season's DVDs so I could get through all of it and understand everything that's going on with the characters on the show.

I also looked up a whole bunch of stuff that was supposed to happen this season on the show. When I was doing that before the season premiere, I saw the site http://internet.clear.com/. I showed it to my husband and we decided to change over our home internet service to it.

Not all of the things that I read about the show online were exactly correct, but a lot of them actually were! This is going to be a really great season.


I heard that you're settled down
That you found a girl
And you're married now

I heard that you're dreams came true
I guess she gave you things
I didn't give to you

Old friend why are you so shy
Ain't like you to hold back
Or ride from the light

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited
But I coudn't stay away
I couldn't fight it
I hoped you'd see my face
And that you be reminded
That for me it isn't over yet

Never Mind
I'll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best
For you too
Don't forget me
I beg
I'll remember you saying
Sometimes it lasts in love
But sometimes it hurts instead

You know how the time flies
Only yesterday
It was the times of our lives
We were born and raised
In a summer haze
Bound by the surprise
Of our glory days

(Repeat Chorus)

Nothing compares
No worries or cares
Regrets and mistakes
Their memories made
Who would have known
How bittersweet
This would taste

(Repeat Chorus)


This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Straight Talk for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

As a working mother, I really need a mobile phone to contact my colleagues, my child’s pediatrician and my husband via call, text or email. I have to call home as often as I could to check on my child when I’m at work. But my phone bills are way too high and its consuming the allowance for other things. That’s why I decided to switch to Android on Straight Talk. It offers an unlimited plan that meets all my needs and it only costs me $45 for the whole month unlike before, I am spending $139.99 to be able to enjoy unlimited calls, texts and web. I need not to change the phone that I’m using because Straight Talk works with my Nokia phone. Plus, anywhere I go, I won’t be worrying about the bad signal or slow connection, Hook, line and sinker because Straight Talk has a great nationwide coverage.

Now that I have switched, I got to save $94.99. I no longer have to shell out extra money to buy diapers, soap, vitamins and other necessities of my child. Straight Talk makes me a happier mother. I just know how to do anything – I’m a mom. I better Call a friend of mine about this and share this wonderful news about Straight Talk. </div>

Do you have a boyfriend or fiance? Is he really love you? How about a close sister that you trust most? What will you do if your fiance and sister betrayed you? Well, you better read this book because The Harvest of Grace is a story of love, grace, betrayal, trust and hard work. A great Amish fiction tale that you truly love. You can get a copy at Barnes and Noble. I received a complimentary copy of Harvest of Grace from Waterbrook Multnomah. Thank you very much.

Reeling from an unexpected betrayal, Sylvia makes a painful mistake that forces her to seek work far from her family.
Can she find relief from the echoes of her past...or will they shape her future forever?

Although Sylvia Fisher recognizes that most Old Order Amish women her age spend their hours managing a household and raising babies, she has just one focus-tending and nurturing the herd on her family's dairy farm. But when a dangerous connection with an old beau forces her to move far from home, she must concentrate on a new start and pour her energy into reviving a debt-ridden farm.

After months in rehab, Aaron Blank returns home to sell his Daed's failing farm and move his parents into an easier lifestyle. Two things stand in his way : the father who stubbornly refuses to recognize that Aaron has changed and the determined new farmhand his parents love like a daughter. Her influence on Aaron's parents could ruin his plans to escape the burdens of farming and build a new life.
Can Aaron and Sylvia find common ground? Or will their unflinching efforts toward opposite goals blur the bigger picture-one revealing the path to forgiveness, glimpses of grace, and the promise of love?

“I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review”.
This book is great, I just finished reading it. I could not put this book down because I can relate part of her life. Her story is very uplifting and encouraging. She shares her struggles being a single mom because of her husband betrayal, the death of her parents in a tornado, and from poverty to being famous wife of NFL superstar and a millionaire, also she was a marine officer decided to be a stay home mom, as well as the miscarriages of two babies. I highly recommend this book to everyone. You can get a copy at Barnes and Noble. I just want to say thank you Booksneeze Company for providing me a free copy of this.

Brenda Warner is best known as the outspoken wife of NFL superstar and Dancing with the Stars alum Kurt Warner. But years earlier, she found herself living through any woman's nightmare; a healthy baby tragically injured in the bathtub; a sudden end to a career she loved; betrayal and divorce; poverty; public humiliation; a deadly natural disaster that destroyed her foundation and shook her to her core. One shattering phone call at a time. Brenda Warner's life came to resemble little of her dream.
But each time her plans fell apart, Brenda faced a choice; to collapse in the face of tragedy or press forward and survive. She chose to keep going. In the process, she's learned that the unexpected is only one call away. Her story provides hope and encouragement for anyone facing life's challenges and shows us that our circumstances don't tell us who we are, nor are they a measure of God's love. God has a plan for us, even when our plans fail. Brenda's life is proof that sometimes the best dreams are not the ones we dream. but the ones that come true when we least expect them.

How is your marriage life? Is your wife unfaithful to you? How about your husband, is he cheating on you? Do you spent more time to each other? Are you making effort to maintain the love and respect? Well, this book is about marriage betrayal. If your marriage is in this stage I recommend that you get a copy of this book at Barnes and Noble. You will find out how betrayal usually started, how to cope and deal with acceptance and forgiveness or be a martyr partner for the rest of your life. A very interesting story that will help your marriage survive. Anyway, the Tyndale House Publishers provided me a free copy of this book. Again, thank you and more power!

When Eric and Kyra Yoshida first met, they thought their love would last forever. But like many marriages, theirs has gradually crumbled, one thought less comment and misunderstanding at a time, until the ultimate betrayal pushes them beyond reconciliation. Though Eric longs to reunite with Kyra, the only woman he has truly loved, he has no idea how to repair the damage that's been done.

Then a car accident erases part of Kyra's memory - including her separation from Eric - and a glimmer of hope rises from the wreckage. Is this a precious opportunity for the fresh start Eric has longed for? Does he even deserve the chance to find forgiveness and win back Kyra's heart...or will the truth blow up in his face, shattering their last hope for happiness?

A richly engaging story of betrayal and redemption, Dry as Rain illuminates with striking emotional intensity the surprising truth of what it means to forgive.


This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of TracFone. All opinions are 100% mine.

Seriously I need a new cellphone. I'm not happy with the one I have. I used prepaid phone because I want to save money. I was attracted with the promo ads back then. The monthly fees including the tax for unlimited call and text was so cheap. I strongly believed I got a good deal from this prepaid phone. The unit itself and the fees are actually affordable so I grabbed it right away without doubts. In the end, I found out it was a big rip off. This cellphone is constantly sucking my money monthly aside from that the service was poor. Every time my balance was low I received never ending messages stating to make payment right away. Isn't that annoying? I can't believe I waste all my money. Now I've learned my lesson, I will buy expensive unit with reasonable fees, less stress and no worries at all.

Did you heard about Tracfone? Well, I heard this is the better one.

"So today I've been thinking about...things that bind us. The thought flitted around my mind and then landed for a while, likely because I was wearing a pair of too-tight heans."

Women of Faith speaker and author Lisa Harper relates from experience-life can be uncertain, sometimes even scary. But with a witty twinkle in her eye and a Bible in her hand, she describes what it's like to find real security in the arms of a Savior who doesn't just notice us but who moves heaven and earth on our behalf.

Part diary, part devotional, Stumbling into Grace weaves hilarious and poignant stories from Lisa's own life with intimate and transformational encounters from the life of Christ. Prayers, reflection questions, and journal prompts help women deep into biblical truths to better understanding how our Redeemer's compassion, affection and constancy make every single moment of life not only more enjoyable but well worth living!

The Waterbook Multnomah Publishing sent me a free copy of this very inspirational book. One of the best book I ever read about dealing with guilt, anger, greed and jealousy. I've learned a lot from this book. The author clearly stated how these emotions take control us and the ways to avoid unwanted decision or action that you might regret later on. If you're having trouble with your marriage life, friendship, work, or family, you better get a copy of this book. You will received a good counseled from the author. I certainly recommend this book to others. You can purchase at barnes and noble.

Divorce. Job loss. Estrangement from family members. Broken friendships.
The difficult circumstances you are dealing with today are likely being fed by one of four emotional forces that compels you to act in undesirable ways, sometimes even against your will.
Andy Stanley explores each of these destructive forces - guilt, anger, greed and jealousy - and how they infiltrate your life and damage your relationships. He says that, left unchallenged, they have the power to destroy your home, your career and friendships.
In Enemies of the Heart, Andy offers practical, biblical direction to help you fight back, to take charge of those feelings that mysteriously control you, and to restore your broken relationships.

Saint of the Week:

A Saint is often an ordinary person who has lived an extraordinary life of virtue and faith. As Catholics we should use these exemplars to inspire us in our daily lives.

St. Peter Chrysologus (406-450)

Little is reported concerning his childhood but he was born in Imola, in North central Italy. His abilities were noticed Cornelius, Bishop of Imola who trained him and ordained him. Soon after he was made archdeacon with the help of Emperor Valentinian III. He was a strong and moral man, and had a wonderful way of expressing ideas and the teachings of the Church. The people of Ravennahad approached Pope Sixtus III concerning the appointment of a new bishop. However, the Pope had a vision. In it St. Peter and St. Apollinaris showed him the next bishop of Revenna, St. Peter Chrysologus. The title Chrysologus means "golden tounged" and this title was given to him by Empress Galla Placidia after hearing his first sermon. In fact, his homilies would later earn him the title Doctor of the Church which was given by Pope Benedict XIII. They had the ability to simply and clearly explain Church teachings. Felix of Ravenna preserved 176 of his homilies in the eighth century. He was a staunch believer in the authority of the Church and he defended the Church against such heresies as Arianism and the Monophysite teachings.

I decided to start a restaurant out here near the train station a long while back and it was one of the best ideas I’ve ever had. It gives me a reason to go to work in the morning and I absolutely love being able to cook all day so it’s a win win for both me and my customers! They seem to really like my country style food and I love selling it to them! I had to make some upgrades recently to get this place in shape for the winter and we bought some new technology for the customers to enjoy. We got SatelliteStarinternet.com internet for the back office and we subscribed to cable on the bar TVs so the men can watch the games when they’re here eating…so far the response has been really good and I know my life’s been made a lot easier by being able to email vendors rather than call them! I hope to keep this place rolling for years to come and this is how I’m going to do it.
