Praise for The Complete Amish Wedding Series
"I had trouble putting the book down. I enjoy the stories about the trials in their lives and the way they rise above them with a little assistance from Gott. Nice clean romances are a great to get away and relax. Thank you for the Great read." ~Teresa Thornock (Goodreads)
Excerpt "You're the most beautiful woman I've ever seen," Samuel remarked. That was a bold statement from an Amish man. But Samuel's feelings were undeniable. Samuel knew that modesty was the Amish way. He'd been brought up on the plain life. Simple service to God. And while Samuel's feelings about himself were humble in nature, his feelings for Ruth were anything but. Ruth meanwhile was no fan of attention. She was naturally shy. Samuel had managed to coax her out of her shell though. Still, Ruth was hardly comfortable in the spotlight. It was a mystery to everyone else why Ruth was such a wallflower. She had so much going for her, she just didn't seem to realize it. "Now Samuel, there's no need to exaggerate," Ruth replied, modestly. "Who says I'm exaggerating?" Samuel continued. "I've waited my whole life to meet a woman like you. And now that I have, it would be a shame not to appreciate you." "Are you trying to make me blush?" Ruth wondered. "No. I'm just trying to make you feel as good as you make me feel," Samuel said. "I'd be careful with your expectations. If you let them get too high, you're bound to be let down," Ruth replied. "It's too late. My expectations are already through the roof," Samuel admitted. "But don't worry, I can't imagine getting let down by you." "It must be interesting looking at life through your eyes," Ruth remarked. "What can I say? Love brings a rose colored tint to everything," Samuel replied. "Don't you agree?" "Just because I'm not as vocal, doesn't mean I love you any less," Ruth said. "How much do you love me?" Samuel wondered. "So much that it scares me sometimes," Ruth admitted. Samuel was confused. "What's there to be scared about?" "Are you kidding? You know the road it's taken us to get here. So after all the bumps, to finally be with you, to finally turn my heart over, to let my feelings be exposed is both exciting and terrifying," Ruth explained. It was true. Ruth and Samuel had found the most roundabout way of getting together. They had been friends for the longest time. Part of a tight knit group of friends that had grown up together in Lancaster. So Ruth and Samuel didn't want to do anything to jeopardize their friendship. They'd seen two of their close friends date in the past. But when their relationship went south, the friendship was ruined as well. Ruth and Samuel didn't want the same thing to happen to them. So Ruth and Samuel dated other people. They did not have much luck finding love though. There were a lot of first dates, but very few second dates. After a while, Ruth and Samuel started to lose hope that they'd ever meet their match. That's when after a lot of hemming and hawing about risking their friendship, Ruth and Samuel finally gave in to the feelings they had for each other. Ruth and Samuel's first date was the best either one had ever experienced. They were a great match. With so much in common. And they made a wonderful couple. It was hard to believe they'd been so afraid to get together. In the end, their friendship only added to the relationship they were building. And ever since then, Ruth and Samuel had been nearly inseparable. Now almost a year in, Ruth and Samuel couldn't imagine being with anyone else. They made each other happier than they ever thought possible. But that didn't mean Ruth was without her worries. Samuel was always there with optimism abound though. "That's how I know we're meant for us each other. Because we know what else is out there. And none of it compares to being with you." Ruth smiled. "You're the sweetest man I've  Becca

GungHo is a unique, healthy focus supplement. Unlike energy shots/drinks, GungHo is PROVEN to boost focus, brain energy, memory storage or recall for tired Moms, students or executives:

"Proven focus and brain energy...unlike energy shots that provide short-term energy and no long-term impact on brain energy, GungHoR builds critical neurotransmitters in the brain over time"
-- Dr Perry Renshaw, MD, PhD, Former Harvard Professor, Director @ The Brain Institute

Moms say GungHo helps them get through the day (get everything done) with a smile - no crash or jitters...

The GungHo Difference

I took
The GungHoR Challenge*:

1. Avoid energy drinks / shots or sodas for 3 days (so you don't crash from them)
2. When you are tired, take a GungHoR instead - convenient tiny liquid packet can take with you anywhere
3. You will note a smooth boost of energy & focus with no jitters or crash

* Over time, GungHoR will also build brain health, capacity to focus and memory recall...but you won't notice that in 3 days:-)

Cassandra's Review-  Do Not give this to Children!  It is intended for adults and should be used that way. You will get excellent results if you use this product and over time may see more benefits. The taste is good. It is easy to digest and as stated there is no crash. Some people are less tolerant to energy products and all results will be different. You must follow the directions and I would not take any other form of energy product while experimenting with this.

'History's Greatest Generals' Audiobook Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

From the #1 bestselling author of The Crusades and the Soldiers of the Cross comes an exciting new audiobook on the greatest minds of military leadership in history. Whether it is Hannibal of Carthage marching elephants across the Alps and attacking the heart of Rome, Khalid ibn al-Walid boasting an undefeated military career and destroying the Persian Empire while subduing the Byzantines, or Russian General Alexander Suvurov and his elevation of the bayonet to a work of art that could cut down any European army, great military leaders have exerted tremendous influence on society.

This 5-hour audiobook will look at the lives of the 10 greatest military commanders in history. Some conquered the fullest expanse of the known world, as did Alexander the Great. Still others were master statesmen and capable of translating military victory into long-term political gains, such as Julius Caesar, whose vanquishing of the Gauls and his political opponents laid the groundwork for several centuries of unmatchable Roman imperial might.

It will also look at the tactics they used to bring down stronger armies and befuddle them at every turn; whether it is Napoleon, who nearly conquered Europe through his deadly manoeuvre sur les derrieres and marching unexpectedly away from the enemy's main strength and concentrating on a weak but vital enemy point; or Hannibal's double entrapment maneuver, which has been the envy of military strategists for the last 2,000 years.

Whatever their background, these rulers show that the right military commander at the right time in history can destroy an empire, change civilization, and alter the course of world history forever.

Cassandra's Review-  I am a home school teacher and this audio book was both helpful and informative for my older children. The younger ones do not really pick up on it too much.  I love that I can listen to it anywhere and it makes it easier to pick up from being it is 5 hours long. If your a history buff this is the book for you!  It is worth every minute and I am so blessed when great things benefit my children.

K9 Advantix II Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
Spring is coming soon, which means that flea season will soon be upon us! K9 Advantix II is a leading brand of pet medication that helps combat fleas and ticks on dogs. We are offerring the 4-month pack of K9 Advantix II ($65 value) in Green, Teal, Red, and Blue variations (for different sizes of dogs).

K9 Advantix II Red for Large Dogs up to 21-55 lbs

Keep your dog safe from irritating and dangerous pests with K9 Advantix II for Large Dogs weighing 21-55 pounds. Formulated for dogs seven weeks of age and older and weighing 21-55 pounds , K9 Advantix II outperforms its competitors not only by killing more varieties of pests, but also by repelling them to prevent future attacks.

Repels and Kills Ticks, Fleas, and Mosquitos

The active ingredients in K9 Advantix II help keep your dog safe from ticks, fleas, and mosquitoes. These effective compounds attack the pests' nerve cells, paralyzing and effectively killing them, as well as repelling them from future attacks. Most ticks are repelled and killed before they can attach, which may reduce the risk of transmitting disease-causing organisms to your pet. K9 Advantix II effectively kills and repels Deer ticks, American dog ticks, Brown dog ticks, and Lone Star ticks.

Fights Against Fleas at All Stages of Development

K9 Advantix II protects your pet against fleas at all stages of the parasite's development. K9 Advantix II breaks the flea life cycle by killing the living fleas on your dog before they can lay eggs. It also prevents the development of existing flea eggs, larvae, and pupae, helping to prevent future infestations.

K9 Advantix II also kills reinfesting fleas (newly hatched fleas jumping back on your dog) within two hours, and it prevents fleas on a treated dog from infesting your home.

Effective Against Biting Flies and Lice

In addition to complete tick, flea, and mosquito protection, K9 Advantix II also repels painful biting flies from feeding on your dog, and it effectively kills up to 100 percent of lice within one week of treatment.

Waterproof Formula

K9 Advantix II is waterproof, so there's no need to reapply after your dog has a bath or goes for a swim. Studies show that dogs are still protected against parasites after exposure to water, though for best results, dogs treated with K9 Advantix II should be bathed with a non-detergent shampoo.

Package Contents

Box includes four 2.5-milliliter tubes of K9 Advantix II for Large Dogs up to 21-55 pounds.

Cassandra's Review- The first thing I noticed when I used this product was how easy it was to open after you get it out of the foil and lining which will take you a good time if you do not have scissor's available, I used a key. The actual applicator is simple to use. I know that when I apply certain flea protection on my animals they will get upset or try to run while its being put on the skin. K9 Advantix II did not do this. It was easy to use and my fur baby was happy and resting afterwards. It has to be used with the greatest of cautions and never by children. DO NOT ever use on cats.  Now I know that my fur baby is safe for a whole month and she can run and play outdoors.

Kong Stuff A Ball is a dog toy with treat dispensing fun and a dental cleaning advantage. Treat-dispensing features keep dogs contently busy and out of trouble while the Denta-Ridges effectively clean teeth and massage gums. Kong Stuff'n treats and pastes work great to initiate play sessions.

not just for dogs lol

Cassandra's Review- My fur babies had a lot of fun with this toy. I found that it is actually like a tire so cat's really will not care to much about it unless packed with something very enticing to them. As a dog toy I think my oldest fur baby on the above left who is 11 was interested in what I put into it as well bit would not bite into it. I would love to try other products from Kong as I see that they have an amazing selection.  If your looking at my review from Tomoson please note that the average rating was put in place even though the company entirely pets never contacted me to fix it to their liking...

Light Spectrums: A Collection of Poetry ebook Review and Giveaway

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

About Light Spectrums: A Collection of Poetry by Jessica Fuqua

I have chosen to release 25 poems in a novel today in celebration of World Poetry Day (March 21st) and the Spring Equinox (March 20th). The novel, "Light Spectrums," falls under both themes, as many poems in this novel are spring and nature related. The poems in "Light Spectrums" uses at least half a dozen poetry forms including Haiku's, Tanka's, Triolet's, Shadorma's, Sonnets, and Acrostics. To mention a few titles: "If My Heart Were a Flower" (Reverse Haiku), "Fringe" (Haiku), "War and Phoenix" (Haiku), "Spring" (Triolet), "Purple Prisms" (Tanka), and "Escape From the Cities" (Shadorma).

Cassandra's Review- Poems are often hard to follow and can take years to interpret in some cases. I was pleased by the writing and style of this book. The natural aspect of the physical world in all forms captured me in the brief encounters I had with each e-page. I would recommend buying the printed version for a vibrant addition to your home or school collection.
