I’m in a Book. Well, a few books.

Studies are showing that religion improves one’s physical and mental health, most likely motivated by social activities and spiritual awareness. Healthy Spirituality is power, for both the flesh and the soul. For this reason, From Dust to Essence is a great tool to help people looking to improve their mental health and people wanting to explore their spirit on a path toward enlightenment and inner peace. Great for any age and any faith.
The onslaught of reproduction has made this overachiever aiming under, especially for the Holidays, a spit storm of FUBARiffic Decking of the Halls brought to you by, none other than, mom. Take a shortcut through achievement, under it, with these hacks and how-to’s to get you through.
Lose the Cape! Never Will I Ever (and then I had Kids!)Most of us had grandiose ideas of what we would be like as parents; what we would allow our children to do and all those things we would never allow. We swore we would never let our child watch more than 30 minutes of television, or sleep in our bed, or eat chicken nuggets or God forbid, guzzle cheese from a can (gasp!). Yet, the moment those little bundles of joy entered our lives, reality took over. Soon enough, we realized that before children, we knew nothing about being parents. From breastfeeding to co-sleeping, pledging to feed our children all-natural, home-cooked meals and so forth, there often comes a point in time where surviving parenthood supersedes your views and your “nevers” slip away. Right? Never Will I Ever is a collection of essays by mothers (and one brave dad!) who share their stories of how they evolved as parents and learned that when it comes to raising children, we can never say never. This is a a special anthology not only funny stories, (and there are some laugh – out – loud – funny stories!) but also some that are so moving and touching. These parents reveal the true tales of parenthood. We believe many will benefit from reading these stories and learning to ‘lose the cape.’
I wrote a chapter in this anthology of stories during the Holidays written by moms.
Moms have a lot to say, and they’re not shy about letting it all out. The same women who breathe life into our limbs also smother us with their ominous, clever, and oh-so celebrated words—life lessons taught in the blink of an eye.
“Motherhood May Cause Drowsiness” is a collection of “momoir” written by over forty moms who write to keep their sanity. They are here to make you laugh, shed a tear or two, and feel connected to other moms who are going through the struggles of every day life with children: a messy house, depression, anxiety, self-doubt, elation, laughter, love, and happiness. And although we all live in different parts of the world (and have different hairstyles), we have one thing in common: WE DON’T GET ENOUGH SLEEP!
Coupledom. Fact or fable, Adam and Eve birthed the perpetual relationship drama as seen on TV today. Despite the serpents, this couple HAD IT MADE. Luxury real estate, lush gardens, and privacy out the yin-yang. Life was glorious until the bare-bottomed babe could no longer resist temptation. Despite her better half’s warnings and threats to sleep in a tree, she tasted the forbidden fruit. One bite of that seductive, juicy contraband, and the stage was set for eternity–a nibble that has blossomed into an endless supply of tiny tidbits that divide lovers to this day! Taking a cue from the original naked explorers of authentic sin, Clash of the Couples is a hits-close-to-home anthology featuring a collection of completely absurd lovers’ squabbles and relationship spats. Think couples fight over kids, sex, and money? Think again! Furniture, the last beer, and where to store the placenta are what genuinely ignite our feuds. And no argument is off limits. This book has it all! Inside you’ll find a gut-busting compilation of stories such as: “I Can’t Believe You Ate My Sandwich,” “Never Assume Anything,” “Only I Can Talk About Me,” and “You Want Some College Boobs?” from forty-six fearless writers. Prepare to laugh, roll your eyes, and shiver in suspense. While Eve may have had the first bite, we ate the whole tree. And made pies.
