Janitors Book 3 – Book Review

  My son has a new favorite series called The Janitors. He and his father have read them together, and every night they delight in the tales of children as they conquer monsters bent on stopping them from focusing in school, and an agency that wants only their students to be smart so they can take over the world. In this third installment that we were privileged to review, the story of how the Janitor’s and the Glop and all the mystery surrounding the strange creatures that sabotage education emerges. My son was enthralled and compared so many things to the book that I began to wonder if he had gotten reality mixed up with fiction. My teacher husband loved it, and is offering on his shelves for students and recommending to other teachers all the time. I even enjoyed the tidbits that I caught here and there as they...

Book Review Edenbrooke

Edenbrooke is a delightful Jane Austen era novel. I received an advanced copy, and must admit, I ignored it for months. I love Jane Austen books, and enjoy all the romance, decorum, and manners found in that era and in the writing from that era. This book did not disappoint. It was a beautiful romance, with twists and turns. My favorite was its emphasis on being yourself despite societies expectations. I truly believe that is the path to happiness and love. This book has delightful romance, sacrifice, intrigue, and the best of the era patterned writing without being over the top, wordy or predictable. I love that Julianne Donaldson created a clean romantic novel that embraces all that is beautiful and lovely about true love and relationships. Her main characters are memorable, and their choices make me want to be a more romantic spouse. It reminded me that I am...

Parenting Webinar from the InJoy and the Children’s Project

I have recently started a working/collaborative partnership with the group The Children’s Project. They have an awesome book, and their program has built my relationship with my son to a new level. It has also helped me to understand and nurture other relationships. I would highly recommend this webinar, and you can purchase a copy of the book on Amazon. It is an easy read, but packed with great practical advice and examples. I am still working my way through it, as I have to keep stopping to apply the principles and see how they work. So far it has been miraculous. My son has struggled with depression and anxiety, and using the principles taught in the book has really helped him to regain his confidence and happy demeanor. Please feel free to share this information with anyone and everyone. Their goal is to have a million people read the...

Beautiful Sorrows Book Review

Beautiful Sorrows is a collection of short horror stories written by my great friend Mercedes Yardley. Like her stories she is a bit of a contradiction. She has three adorable children. Her oldest has special needs, and she is a warrior parent in championing him and getting him all the help he requires, but is also the most compassionate and giving mother that I have ever met. She is known to write with bunny ears on so her kids know to let her type. She can run in 3 inch heels to chase down her kiddos, but she is defined by her writing, her parenting and so many other things that it is very difficult to pin down one word to describe her. Her writing is the same. It is horror, but it is whimsical and different. She doesn’t have blood, guts and gore. Rather her books express human heartache...

Book Review: Sitting Kills Moving Heals

I had the opportunity to read and review this book, and I love it!! It is written by a former Director of NASA’s Life Sciences Division, a doctor who got to research the effects of space on astronauts, and then compares them to our modern-day sedentary lifestyle. It is a fascinating read on why exercise may not be enough, and how we can utilize gravity and everyday movement to promote health and well-being. I would highly recommend it. Especially since I cannot engage in “traditional” forms of exercise. It is nice to know that just getting up and doing my everyday activities has benefits. Dr. Vernikos, Ph.D. was kind enough to supply me with a guest post as well. To learn more about her work and the book please go here. How I came to write Sitting Kills, Moving Heals. Let me state outright that I did not intend to...
