There are so many influences on teens and young adults today, the flood is impossible
to control. Often, teens’ questions about themselves and their futures are too much for
parents to handle alone, or worse, go unnoticed and unanswered. The consequence of
ignoring these can lead to decades of unnecessary struggle. Adolescence Is Not a Disease
offers innovative, real-life, real-world solutions to problems both parents and teens face.
Internationally recognized mentor, Jeffrey Leiken, explains the three distinct stages of
the deep and complex inner journey each teen goes through in becoming a self-sufficient
adult, and how you can help your teens answer their most urgent and challenging
questions and move toward fulfilling adulthoods.
Leiken shares themes, struggles, and solutions almost all teens and their parents face,
highlighting the differences between coming-of-age in the twenty-first century, while
honoring the universal constants that we all went through. Leiken poignantly discourages
parents from blindly deferring to the pervasive, contemporary, one-dimensional, fear driven
“expert advice” that too often pathologizes adolescence, misunderstands it, and
creates the problems it then tries (and mostly fails) to fix. Rather than try to become an
expert in parenting, Leiken will help you to instead become an expert in raising your own.

He has a master’s degree in educational counseling.

Cassandra's Review- Anyone can be a role model, but not everyone can be a good one. The author brings to light the need for positiveness in a child's life. I think that this book is going to be a great read for any older ages as well as anyone that needs a little enlightenment on the topics at hand.
Cassandra's Review- Phil has a great voice and it is very smooth, with a little higher tones. The beat and rhythm is good for worship, but I could not see this playing in an old school church. I can see someone being able to soak in the words while relaxing in the spirit. I would recommend this CD for people of faith no matter what age because it is clean and has enough of a beat to keep you from falling asleep.
Suzanne Waters (Karen Abercrombie) has just passed the baton as the principal of the local high school. Having spent a lifetime teaching life lessons, the journey into retirement is about to bring her one of her greatest lessons. Her lesson plan will come from a troubled young man, Eli, as she invests in his life. Suzanne also becomes a first-time grandmother, and the new life of the baby brings renewed hope to the family as each member discovers their core value in God's path for their lives. As Suzanne reflects back on her life of faithfulness, we are reminded that there are no accidents in God's Kingdom, no chance meetings, no purposeless steps taken.
I recevied a complimentary copy.
Cassandra's review- The movie has soul and brought a sense of calm along with sadness during moments of it. I think that it is a clean movie that the family can share as well as discuss. It has a message and meaning that will both uplift and refresh your spirit.
Reclusive assassin Thomas Moore dreams of joining his love,Dearest, in his private world he calls “Detour.” Moore's father, Partner, has left him for the past year which Moore believes is his toughest lesson on growing up to being a man. All seems in place when Moore is confronted by his boss who he has never met who offers him a deal to get three times his usual money to kill a small-town mayor. Moore has only killed men guilty of murder and while his boss tells him this man is guilty, he cannot be sure.
He will have to choose between grabbing the life he wants and sparing the life of a good man. Suspenseful, darkly humorous with a deep look at a man who sees this world as a technological hell, Who You Work For will have you rooting for a man who could only be wrong in a world where all is lost.
Lives in Jackson, TN where he writes crime suspense thrillers. He currently has two titles available and also short stories published on www.short-story.me.
I received a complimentary copy.
Cassandra's Review- I was able to read through this pretty quickly with no hang ups. I felt that it was well timed with enough of a pause in each chapter that I could put it down if I had to without thinking about what was going to happen though I did not bother to break during my reading because it was just that good.
It is not made for younger children so I would not recommend it for them.
The book has well written, easy to feel characters, that are created to keep you in tune. I will not give up the ending but only say that it is well worth getting through the 300+ pages. I look forward to Book 2.
As seen on Site:
Single layer construction. Cool for comfort.

I recevied complimentary product.
Cassandra's Review- With the help of my little one I was able to review this soft and comfortable swaddle. There is not any hard tags or ways to hurt the baby. The zipper is plastic but did not kink during use. The snap clasps are easy to use and stay together.
It was easy to wash this without any shrinking before and after use. The little beads/balls inside the egg shaped front are sewn in perfectly so I did not worry about them coming loose. i think it keeps a good security and plushness that helps to sooth the baby.

Cassandra's Review- A cookbook that is filled with recipes that you can actually cook. The ingredients are super easy to find in any local grocery store and most of them are not super expensive, plus you can substitute for cheaper ingredients based on your budget.
Everything is layed out nicely and is super easy to understand. I was very pleased with this book.
