Written by Hand by Erica Tighe
An Introduction to the Art of Beautiful Handwriting
Written by Hand
The art of beautiful handwriting is being rediscovered by a generation that spends most of the day typing on keyboards and screens. With Written by Hand, anyone can hone, perfect, and beautify their handwriting. Guided practice sheets encourage readers to look deeply at the written word and add flourishes and embellishments to their lines that elevate them from typical or rushed to elegant and purposeful. Learn to love your handwriting again.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-  I enjoyed showing the kids all of the different options in this book and trying out our own handwriting to see if it matches.  It is fun to practice and try new things.   While we would not write in the books, we do have great paper to practice with.  The book would be great for any age especially beginners.  You can even pick up a few new styles.  

Tips from World Class Smiles author Dr. Jamie Reynolds and Review



Braces are designed to straighten teeth, but Halloween sometimes makes parents clench theirs in frustration.

With the fun night of trick-or-treat around the corner, the annual concern of moms, dads and orthodontists is what kinds of candy the kids will eat. In any bag of goodies there’s always potential bad news – sugary delights that can cause broken brackets, bent wires and a bevy of cavities.

“I think parents should understand that kids are kids, and regardless of how much you manage them or micromanage them, they’re going to eat some of this stuff because we all did when we were kids,” says Dr. Jamie Reynolds (www.AskDrReynolds.com), an orthodontist, national and international lecturer and author of World Class Smiles Made in Detroit.

“Halloween is a holiday created around candy, but damage done to the braces can be a big time waster for families. As orthodontists we set aside extra time in our schedule for the few days after Halloween because we see a spike in how much people come in for an unscheduled visit.”

Reynolds lists the types of treats that kids wearing braces should avoid on Halloween and in general:
Hard candies. Removing these from the kids’ collection may not make them happy Halloween night, but in the long run making these treats a no-no will let the braces do their job without any setbacks. Anything with a hard outer shell should be ruled out. “If you try to bite into those, you’re probably going to knock your brackets off,” Reynolds says.

The sticky, chewy, gooey stuff. Candy apples, caramels, toffee and bubblegum are frequent culprits. “The sticky stuff will get wrapped around the brace, making it hard to get clean, and over time increases the risk of cavities,” Reynolds says. Also included on this list are chewable delights from fruity candy to jellybeans, gumdrops and taffy.

Popcorn. For those wearing bands around their teeth – the old-school, traditional style of braces – popcorn is a common problem. “Part of the band extends below the gum, and the popcorn can get wedged between the gum and band, creating a gum infection,” Reynolds says. “For a while we told people not to eat popcorn. However, with technology and advancements, now some braces are stuck to the teeth without bands, so that makes popcorn more OK. But you still have to be careful.”

Reynolds notes that Halloween just magnifies the larger issue parents face with their sugar-loving kids throughout the year – the potential for cavities.

“One of the big challenges as a parent is regulating their sugar intake – the number one cause of cavities,” Reynolds says. “We worry about that with braces on because they can act as little shelves, and bacteria get on top of them.”

Cassandra's Review-  This is a great resource for any question that you or your children may have regarding smile improvement.  


The Book of Awesome Women by Becca Anderson Review

35746491

Did you know who wrote the first algorithm? Her name was Ada Lovelace and not only was she a math genius, but she was the even-smarter daughter of the great poet Lord Byron. Have you heard that one of the reasons the Allies won World War II was a secret crew of Russian women pilots who risked their lives every evening fighting Nazis in planes made of wood? Meet the Night Witches. Why haven’t we heard more about Annie Easley, who wrote the computer code that helped so many NASA launches? These and other “hidden figures” represent important chapters of our history that need to be told.

Women hold up half the sky and, most days, do even more of the heavy lifting including childbearing and child-rearing. All after a long day at the office. Women have always been strong, true heroes ─ sheroes, oftentimes unacknowledged. As we shake off the last traces of a major patriarchal hangover, women are coming into their own. In the 21st Century, all women can fully embrace their fiery fempower and celebrate their no-holds-barred individuality. It is time to acknowledge the successful women of the world.


Super women as female role models: From the foremothers who blazed trails and broke barriers, to today's women warriors from sports, science, cyberspace, city hall, the lecture hall, and the silver screen, The Book of Awesome Women paints 200 portraits of powerful and inspiring role models for women and girls poised to become super women of the future.

So what do Sojourner Truth, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Malala have in common? They're some of the super women you will meet in The Book of Awesome Women, just like these women:
Elizabeth Custer
Althea Gibson
Dian Fossey
Aretha Franklin
Babe Didrikson
Lee Tai-Young
Jackie Joyner-Kersee
Kathryn Peddrew
Fannie Lou Hamer
Sally Ride
Nobel Peace Prize winner, Wangari Maathai
and many more!

Now is the time to acknowledge the greatness of women!

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review- An amazing book to help you teach or discover the power of women in the world.  It is filled with powerful moments and stories that could be passed down from generation to generation.  The book will be great read for men and women.

Evidence That Demands a Verdict Life-Changing Truth for a Skeptical World By Josh McDowell Review



Evidence That Demands a Verdict
Life-Changing Truth for a Skeptical World
By Josh McDowell & Sean McDowell, PhD

The modern apologetics classic that started it all is now completely revised and updated—because the truth of the Bible doesn’t change, but its critics do.

With the original Evidence That Demands a Verdict, bestselling author Josh McDowell gave Christian readers the answers they needed to defend their faith against the harshest critics and skeptics. Since that time, Evidence has remained a trusted resource for believers young and old.

Bringing historical documentation and the best modern scholarship to bear on the trustworthiness of the Bible and its teachings, this extensive volume has encouraged and strengthened millions. Now, with his son Sean McDowell, Josh McDowell has updated and expanded this classic resource for a new generation. This is a book that invites readers to bring their doubts and doesn’t shy away from the tough questions.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-  Imagine that you have a love of God and want to show or tell someone that he is real.  Imagine that you have a super strong faith but someone is always trying to disarm you from the truth you believe.  Imagine you have children that you want to reach about your God.  Well this book will make all of that possible and is perfect for a gift or to discuss together.
