The Faith of Ashish (Book 1 of Blessings of India Series) (Blessings in India)
Author: Kay Marshall Strom
Genre: Religious - Inspirational

DESCRIPTION: Never Doubt That the Unending Love of a Father-or the Pure Faith of a Child-Can Change Lives "His name is Ashish. His name is blessing. The boy is my blessing." Virat and Latha named their son Ashish, for he is the light and glory of their world. Yet a simple drink of water changes all their lives forever. For Virat, Latha, and Ashish are Untouchables, members of a caste who must never contaminate the world of the other, higher, castes. When Ashish mistakenly drinks from the wrong cup, he's badly beaten. Knowing that his son needs a doctor-which takes money-Virat ventures into the dangerous realm of the high caste. He begs Mammen Samuel Varghese, the wealthy landowner and Christian, for money. He receives the loan-along with a life of slavery for himself and his family. But Mammen Samuel does not understand the strength of a father's love, the power of a young British nurse who could not forget a boy named Blessing-or the faith of a child.

Mom Energy - Special Free Preview: A Simple Plan to Live Fully Charged
Author: Kathy Kaehler
Genre: Women's Health - Wellness

DESCRIPTION: This download is a special FREE preview of Mom Energy, by celebrated dietitian Ashley Koff and fitness trainer to the stars Kathy Kaehler. This book is an exciting new way for moms to tap into their own natural and renewable sources of energy to overcome fatigue and achieve their personal health goals. Koff and Kaehler have put together a safe, sensible, flexible, and, most importantly, effective program for moms of any age-whether their kids are in diapers or heading off to college. While being a mom is undeniably rewarding, it's also one of the most physically demanding and stressful activities in modern society. In fact, one of the most common complaints from mothers is that they simply don't have the energy to do everything they want, which means they end up sacrificing one thing (usually their own health) to accomplish another. But these sacrifices aren't necessary if you follow some simple guidelines and avoid secret energy saboteurs. With discussions that cover everything from nutrition to fitness to time management, Koff and Kaehler lay out a three-part program (reorganize, rehab, and recharge) that can be molded to any lifestyle to help moms naturally up their energy levels. And with this enhanced energy, they will get all sorts of other unexpected benefits, including a stronger immune system, easier weight loss, and even better relationships. Mom Energy will teach readers what will help and what will hurt in their quest for optimum energy.

NOTE: TO AVOID SPAM being posted instantly, this blog uses the "DELAY" feature.

Am often away much of the day, and postings won't show up right away. Posts done to use referrer-links may never show up.

Usually, am online enough to release comments within a day though, so the hard-to-read match-text tests for commenting won't be needed this way.

Feedback and questions are welcome. Thanks for participating.

Technical Problems?
If you're having problems leaving a Comment, Google's blogger-help asks that you clear the '' cookies on your browser's Tools or Options menu bar and that will fix the Comment-box problems (until they have a permanent fix).

IF that doesn't work either, then UNcheck the "keep me signed in" box -- Google-help says that should allow your comment to post (it's a workaround to a current bug).
Apologies for the problems.

TIP: There's a size limit. If longer than 3500 characters or so, in a text editor, make two posts out of it.
