New from Max Lucado | ‘Miracle at the Higher Grounds Cafe’ and iPad Giveaway

Miracle at the Higher Grounds Cafe
Miracle at the Higher Grounds Cafe (Thomas Nelson, February 2015)

What if you could ask God anything? What would you ask? And how would he answer?

Chelsea Chambers is on her own. After a public split from her NFL superstar husband, Chelsea takes a bold step out of the limelight and behind the counter of the Higher Grounds Café, an old-fashioned coffee shop in dire need of reinvention. But when her courage, expert planning, and out-of-this-world cupcakes fail to pay the bills, this newly single mom finds herself desperate for help. Better yet, a miracle.

Then a curious stranger lands at Chelsea's door, and with him, an even more curious string of events. Soon, customers are flocking to the Higher Grounds Café, and not just for the cupcakes and cappuccino. They've come for the internet connection to the divine. Now the café has become the go-to place for people in search of answers to life's biggest questions.

When a catastrophe strikes and her ex comes calling, Chelsea begins to wonder if the whole universe is conspiring against her quest to make it on her own. After a shocking discovery opens her eyes to the unseen world around her, Chelsea finds the courage to ask, and heaven answers in a most unexpected way.

FitTea's PostNatal Fatburner #spon #PostNatalFatBurner




I remember just how hard it was to lose weight after having my children.  Even today I am struggling to get some the extra weight off. I have tried so many different ways to lose weight.  I have read about the FitTea and see some really good features of the product that may really help out. The product is supposed to safely increase your metabolism, burn fat, and even increase milk production.   I know most women try absolutely everything they can to lose weight and some will not want to wait until after breastfeeding to do so and even though in my opinion the baby needs as much nutrients as possible ,so I would wait till after I was finished but some women can not stand to have the extra fat.  So for this purpose the FitTea Postnatal supplement product may help.  Now I have not tried it and can not personally tell you anything about the product other then introducing it to you. I do not have any idea how it works and can not be responsible for any results from taking this product should you decide to buy after reading my post.  I can only hope that it works perfectly for you, so please check out all the facts and information on it for yourself before trying it. Of course keeping a good exercise regime and diet will help as well.    



#PostNatalFatBurner  




FitTea's PostNatal Fatburner  can be an option for you to look into as you are researching herbal supplements to assist in getting rid of stubborn baby fat.

FitTea's PostNatal Fatburner uses 100% natural ingredients. 

While FitTea's PostNatal Fatburner is safe for use in pregnant and breastfeeding mothers, it's always wise to check with your doctor first.

Baby weight is not easy weight to take off. You’re busy, you’re not sleeping well, and you’re eating sporadically. It also doesn't help that you feel bloated and sluggish, and that you feel like you’re limited on what you can and can’t eat or take while you’re breastfeeding.


Using the patented FitTea Postnatal supplement that’s safe to use while breastfeeding, you can safely shed that baby weight and get back your rocking body!
Statistics Show That 95% of Dieters Won’t Lose Weight (and Keep It Off) with Exercise and Food Alone

You’re eating for two, which means you have to know exactly what’s going in your body! Our 100 percent, all natural formula is safe for you, safe for your baby, and will make it easier to lose those stubborn pounds.
Even better, because breastfeeding burns calories, you’ll be DOUBLING your fat burning when you take our supplement!
INCREASE YOUR MILK SUPPLY AND BURN FAT AT THE SAME TIME

The formula is not only safe, it’s great for moms that breastfeed! When you take FitTea Postnatal supplements, you’re actually increasing your milk production which means you’re:

INCREASING HEALTHY ANTIBODIES FOR YOUR BABY
BUILDING YOUR BABIES IMMUNE SYSTEM

INCREASING LACTATION—PROVIDING MORE FOOD FOR YOUR BABY

BURNING EVEN MORE FAT!

LIARS, INC by Paula Stokes Nerd Blast and Giveaway




For fans of Gone Girl, I Hunt Killers, and TV's How to Get Away with Murder.

Max Cantrell has never been a big fan of the truth, so when the opportunity arises to sell forged permission slips and cover stories to his classmates, it sounds like a good way to make a little money and liven up a boring senior year. With the help of his friends Preston and Parvati, Max starts Liars, Inc. Suddenly everybody needs something and the cash starts pouring in. Who knew lying could be so lucrative?

When Preston wants his own cover story to go visit a girl he met online, Max doesn’t think twice about hooking him up. Until Preston never comes home. Then the evidence starts to pile up—terrifying clues that lead the cops to Preston’s body. Terrifying clues that point to Max as the murderer.

Can Max find the real killer before he goes to prison for a crime he didn’t commit? In a story that Kirkus Reviews called "Captivating to the very end," Paula Stokes starts with one single white lie and weaves a twisted tale that will have readers guessing until the explosive final chapters.

Devon's Choice Blog Tour $25 Amazon Gift Card or Paypal Cash Giveaway

Devon's Choice (1)
devon's choiceDevon's Choice Life holds no surprises for Devon Murphy. Her life consists of keeping tabs on her aging Irish father, working part time at a coffee shop, and building her online graphics design business. Devon’s only tricky situation is a shallow relationship with the pampered and affluent Michael Turner, who sees her as just another woman to conquer. Following his father’s death, Brandon’s only goal is to expand the family business and live life on his own terms. That is, until he walks into the coffee shop one snowy evening and meets the enchanting, red-haired barista behind the counter. But can Devon and Brandon’s attraction for each other be strong enough to help erase their deepest disappointments and renew their faith in God?

 “Hi, Bub.  Is Daddy asleep?”  She peeked down the hallway and saw that his bedroom light was off.  A vociferous, gulping snore tore through the peaceful silence.  Rolling her eyes, she walked through the kitchen and opened the back door.  Bubby carefully picked and sniffed his way to his favorite spot, did his business and quickly came inside.
     After finishing her bedtime ritual in the bathroom, Devon puttered around her room, hanging up clothes and reading a couple of chapters from the romance novel.  Letting go a leisurely yawn, she put the book on the nightstand and scooted herself under the covers.  Bubby curled up in a tight ball at the foot of the bed.
      She began to think of Michael and his childish attitude.  Perhaps, she thought, it would be best if they broke off the relationship.  It didn’t seem to be giving either one of them what they wanted or needed.  His blatant disregard of her dad’s situation was proof of that.  She stared up at the ceiling fan above her bed and felt ashamed of the apologetic way she’d responded to him.  Suddenly she remembered a phrase her mom repeated to her in times when she felt weak in her faith.  “Devy, serving God is like buttoning your blouse.  If you get the first button right, everything else lines up.”  The words seemed to come so easily to her mom that even when the cancer took away her physical strength, her faith in God still remained strong.
     “Mom, please help me get it right,” Devon whispered, as she pulled the blanket to her chin, closed her eyes and drifted into sleep.

Praise for Devon's Choice 5 Star Review on Amazon “Devon's Choice is an enjoyable Christian Romance. I was hooked from the first chapter. Devon is a strong, independent young woman who is not afraid to stand by her beliefs. The characters are very believable, and the story contains some surprise twists and turns. I would recommend this book to all readers who like Christian Romance. It is an excellent read.” ~ Review by Sharon B. 4 Star Review on Amazon “This book is an enjoyable read. Moving along with Devon and her choices opens oneself to feeling with her the good and bad consequences of those choices. I particularly enjoyed the interaction between Devon and her dad. How she handles herself and all life throws at her makes for a good read.” ~ Review by Robin 5 Star Review on Amazon This is a very emotional story of friendship, relationships and loss. Devon Murphy is a woman with strong morals. She loves and cares for her aging widowed father, works a part time job at a coffee shop with her friend Megan, and is putting her graphics art degree to work building a business. She is dating Michael Turner, who is egotistical, self-centered and treats her like a business deal. Brandon Forrester seems to have the same strong characteristics as Devon, family devotion, business ethics, healthier lifestyle and respecting other people. Devon knows that Michael is wrong for her and when she meets Brandon, they seem to have a connection. This story is about taking a hard look at your life and goals and making plans and changes. About dealing with the loss of a parent and knowing how to move on and putting your faith and trust in God and allowing Him to lead in your life. ~ Review by RedRabbitt 5 Star Review on Amazon I really enjoyed this romance, the characters and their journey. It was very moving, endearing and engaging. I appreciate the writing style, the emotional pull, the way the story unfolds. I love to feel satisfied after reading a book, and this one does just that! Very enjoyable read. Highly recommend! ~ Review by Kimberly Catherine BennettAuthor Catherine Bennett I grew up in Ohio where I currently live with my husband and our two rescue Labradors. Some of my favorite things include reading, shopping, pepperoni pizza, Hershey bars and hanging out with my two grown sons. I also love dogs; so going to the dog park is cheap entertainment for my husband and I! Growing up an only child, I had many imaginary friends. I believe this - and a love of books - fueled my desire to write. It was many years later that my dream of becoming a published author came true. I’m grateful to God for always keeping a story in my heart and hope you are blessed and entertained by my book.

Tez Brooks’ ‘The Single Dad Detour’ $150 Giveaway

The Single Dad Detour

The Single Dad Detour (Kregel Books, February 2015)

Practical steps to embrace God's mission for single Dads

Conventional wisdom holds that fathers have few parenting skills and that mothers always know best. The single father is often considered a mythical creature, found only in sitcoms as an object of humor or pity. Where does that leave real single dads? Too often, it makes them susceptible to overcompensation or apathy.

Tez Brooks knows those feelings all too well. He's traveled that road with his own children after an unexpected divorce. The Single Dad Detour is the result of his journey and the lessons he's learned along the way. It's a guidebook for the rocky road of single fatherhood, extending encouragement, confidence, and challenges, using specific examples from dads who've survived parenting and have hope to offer.

There are no unreachable requirements for perfect fatherhood here and no twisty theological mysteries---just authentic, down-to-earth wisdom from one dad to another.


Purchase a copy: http://bit.ly/1EUlIZ9

I received a complimentary copy of this book.

Cassandra's Review-  The book is great for the single dad and can help with great tips and information from one dad to the other.   The author does a wonderful job expressing his wisdom and feelings and I think other men would benefit and connect really well.  It also offers a bit of insight into the world of a single dad which would be beneficial to some women who might not even realize that they exist or  are any good.   

Tez Brooks
Tez Brooks is the father of four children and a missionary filmmaker for The Jesus Film Project. He has also been a journalist for Cru and a Florida law enforcement officer. Tez has been speaking and writing books and articles for over thirty years.


Find Tez online: website, FacebookThe divorced father is often portrayed in movies and television as an object of humor, ridicule, or pity.

New from Debra Clopton | ‘Betting on Hope’ Kindle Giveaway

Betting on Hope
Betting on Hope (Thomas Nelson, February 2015)

A bet gone wrong. A small town's meddling. And a cowboy intent on saving his ranch.

Maggie Hope is an advice columnist whose background leaves her with little advice to give . . . and it's beginning to show. When Maggie fills in at an interview with champion horse trainer Tru Monahan, the on-camera chemistry between them is undeniable. Maggie's bosses know this is the opportunity she's been looking for to launch her career---and their bank accounts. In order to save her column, Maggie takes Tru up on the bet that he can teach her to ride a quick-stepping cutting horse like any cowgirl, despite the fact that she has never been on a horse. And in the meantime, she can get the scoop on the man under the cowboy hat.

Tru has been on the competition circuit for longer than he'd like, but he knows it's the only way he can afford to keep the Four of Hearts Ranch that means so much to his ailing grandfather. So when his sponsors see the opportunity for Tru's fans to get to know the star on a more intimate level, he knows he must oblige. To his dismay, Maggie not only invades his small town of Wishing Springs, but she also invades his heart, and that is something he cannot let any woman do-for her own good.

In Wishing Springs, Maggie finds what she has always been looking for: a community and a home. But when her past catches up to her, it threatens everything, even the tender hope that this town holds all of her heart's desires.

 Title: THE THREE THORNS (THE BROTHERHOOD AND THE SHIELD #1)
Publication date: February 24, 2015
Publisher: Tantrum Books/Month9Books, LLC.
Author: Michael Gibney

Three brothers born to a once powerful King were abandoned at birth and cast out into the old world as orphans - alone and unaware of the other's existence or their royal heritage.

In the new world, by order of the false King, three of the most lethal assassins are sent to kill the children before they come of age and avenge their father’s throne.

But when the brothers find one another, Benjamin, Tommy and Sebastian must resist the temptation of magic and power if they are to defeat the unspeakable evil that has threatened them since birth.

The Three Thorns is book one in an exciting children’s fantasy series called The Brotherhood and the Shield from debut author Michael Gibney.
