Love’s Affliction captures the weakness and heartbreak of forbidden love. Will their romance endure the scrutiny of a racially-charged small college town?

As Ella EL-Kildani, M.Ed, Educator, Director of Genta Educational and Tutorial ser-vices puts it, Love’s Affliction reveals the “intense passion, ambition, and determination, between two college co-eds from opposite ethnic and social classes” and “the agonizing, yet thrilling journey into a late 70’s multicultural romance.”

NEW Award-Winning Children’s Book Combines “Gamification” with Important Life Lessons

The newly published book, ‘The Smart Playbook: Game-Changing Life Skills for a Modern World’ by Suzanne M. Wind, has become one of those “must have” resource for parents to keep around the house to help them impart to their kids the art of social graces.

Since its debut, the book is the proud recipient of seven awards including a Mom’s Choice Awards® Gold, Creative Child Magazine 2014 Book of The Year, The Toy Man® “Mom-Approved Comme Il Faut” Award, The Toy Man® eChoice Award, The Toy Man® Award of Excellence, The Toy Man® S.T.E.M Award, and The Mr. Dad Seal of Approval.

Aimed at teaching children confidence, integrity and empathy the book is chock-full of some awesome game-changing life skills that every child needs to know so as to truly understand the rules and know how to gracefully play the game of life in this modern world. Five of the SMART topics covered in the book, and designed to help children succeed, include:

• Social Skill Basics – The principles of modern manners
• Mealtime Manners – A guide to mealtime etiquette
• Art of Conversation – Face-to-face conversational skills
• Restaurant Behavior – The finer points of restaurant conduct
• Technology Talk – Internet safety and responsible usage

“The ‘gamification’ methods included in The SMART Playbook will help children ages 6-12 gain confidence, character, integrity and empathy in face-to-face situations and technology usage,” said Ms. Wind, a mom of three, who considers the book a “must have” for families.

As the creator of The SMART Playbook, Ms. Wind said the activity book uses a hands-on approach with more than 100 games and challenges to choose from. “The result: a happy and confident child thriving in a modern world,” assured Suzanne – a woman with an impossible mission to present families a simple and effective game plan to teach relevant life skills in a modern world.

Arguing that the world is changing faster than ever before has led Ms. Wind to believe parents and children are busier today than ever, and technology has and will continue to present new challenges they must face.

“But with all the texting, emailing, and posting, are children developing the social skills that will be required for lifelong happiness, confidence and success?” she questioned, but added, “That’s where The SMART Playbook comes into the picture. Parents and educators have called the book the perfect affordable solution to bring a little civility back to the 21st century.”

According to one reviewer, Suzanne has created a “fantastic, fun and interactive” book that’s right for both children and parents. She believes ‘The SMART Playbook is the perfect summer activity book, as it is designed to lead them in a collaborative effort to bring manners to a new generation.

The book is available as one complete book or by topic only. For more information, please visit Also available for purchase at and Barnes and Noble online.

New Controversial Book Provides Spiritual Insight to Those People Who Seek Answers to Life’s Many Mysteries

At one time or another in your everyday life, you’ve probably pondered such questions as:

• What really happens upon bodily death?

• Why am I really here on earth?

• Why has my life turned-out the way that it has?

• Is the Bible really the word of God since millions of people are now questioning its validity?

• Since I don’t identify as a Christian, will I still be allowed in Heaven?

• Who or what is to blame for my child being born with multiple birth defects?

• Do married couples and families really stay together for all of eternity?

• What really happens when an individual commits suicide? Do they burn in Hell for all of eternity?

• Why would a loving God allow my child to die at such a young age?

• Why does it seem that God doesn’t answer any or all of my prayers?

• Am I really following the “right” or “one true” religion?

• Do I really need my body in Heaven after bodily death?

• Is it okay if my body is cremated?

• Why would a loving God allow so many people to live in virtual poverty and despair while others live lavish lifestyles?

• Perhaps you’re fearful of your pending life review when you (as many believe), stand before God to be judged, and you are concerned about spending eternity in hell?

If any of these questions or concerns have ever crossed your mind, then this highly-controversial book is for you!

“Answers about Life: Answers to Life’s Many Mysteries Revealed” is without reservation, the most valuable resource in the world when it comes to revealing the spiritual truths and knowledge that we all claim to be seeking, and it provides answers to all of the above-mentioned questions and concerns, plus many more.

It also answers the questions you didn’t realize that you had until you discover the answers to them.

In 1981, author Bob McDowell survived a full-blown near death “transcendent” experience, meaning that his experience went above and well-beyond that of a typical near death experience, in that he was provided with spiritual knowledge and truths which are not typically obtained by the millions of others who have had a near death experience.

This is evidenced by the spiritual lessons which he learned and brought back with him to share with others.

If you’ve read other books written by NDE survivors, you’ll quickly realize how the content contained within the pages of this book separates itself from all other NDE books on the market today, as it goes where no other book has gone before.

It took him many years to even talk about this experience with his closest friends and over 30 years to initially write about it because it was so shockingly profound, as it went against nearly everything that he had been brought-up to believe was true from his Protestant (Disciples of Christ) religious upbringing.

What makes “Answers about Life: Answers to Life’s Many Mysteries Revealed” so credible and separates it from all of the other books in this genre, is that it was written without any hidden agendas or prejudices whatsoever. McDowell is not a minister, pastor, Bishop, Elder, Priest or Rabbi.

He is not a psychic medium; he doesn’t talk to dead people and doesn’t profess to have any special powers, or even all of the answers. He has absolutely nothing to promote, other than the need for a more spiritual life.

Since his paranormal experience in 1981, he no longer affiliates himself with any earthly religion, and he has no desire whatsoever to promote himself or what he learned by engaging in radio or television interviews, as he’s not interested in fame, fortune, or becoming a household name.

He simply sees himself as a messenger-of-sorts, and in numerous instances throughout this book, he actually encourages his readers to form their own opinions based on the facts and (sometimes simple logic) which he presents.

This book is about complete honesty and integrity, and it manifests itself throughout the book.

“Answers about Life: Answers to Life’s Many Mysteries Revealed” is written in an easy-to-read conversational style and with a respectful tone as well. It stimulates the mind and gives readers a lot of food-for-thought.

Readers of this book will walk away with a completely different view of the world, the people around them, and themselves as well. They should also prepare themselves for a journey of spiritual growth, enlightenment and empowerment.

Dave Skogen, chairman of Festival Foods, authors new book on business leadership

The publication of Boomerang! Leadership Principles That Bring the Customer Back has been announced by 9th Street Publishing of Green Bay. The book is written by Dave Skogen, chairman of the board of Skogen’s Festival Foods and a native of Onalaska, Wis.

In Boomerang!, Skogen provides insights and lessons based on his experiences over a period of nearly six decades in leading Festival Foods’ transformation from a single 3,000-square-foot grocery store into a regional supermarket chain. The book’s underlying idea is “the boomerang theory,” the fundamental principle that extraordinary hospitality rather than ordinary customer service brings people back and that organizations that go the extra mile can inspire customers to go the extra mile for them.

Prior to taking on the role of chairman at Festival Foods, Skogen served as CEO and president of the company for more than 30 years. He has also served in leadership roles with numerous community organizations as well as industry organizations including the Food Marketing Institute. He received an honorary degree from the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse in 2012.

Festival Foods is a family and employee-owned company that was originally founded as Skogen’s IGA by Skogen’s father and mother in 1946 in Onalaska. Today the company operates 18 stores across Wisconsin and has more than 5,000 employees.

Elaine Feuer’s To Gently Leave This Life: The Right To Die

Physician-assisted death is legal in four states in the U.S. and in three countries in Europe. In 2012, two court cases involving assisted death have set the stage for new international precedents regarding euthanasia legislation worldwide. In Canada, Gloria Taylor, who suffered from Lou Gehrig’s disease, was granted the right to die by British Columbia’s Supreme Court. Canada’s federal government is appealing the decision. In Britain, “locked-in” patient Tony Nicklinson pleaded his case to Britain’s High Court but was denied the right to die despite the tortured nightmare that was his existence. For people who are suffering from a terminal or incurable illness, the option of a peaceful passing is the issue at the forefront of modern society. Assessing the quality of life, and allowing patients who suffer from debilitating pain and dependence on others to gently leave this life, gives people a dignified alternative. Read To Gently Leave This Life to learn what you need to know about end-of-life decisions.

Robert J. Moore Presents My Journey Through Addictions To Salvation: A New Beginning

May 11, 2013: Robert J. Moore is proud to announce the official publication of My Journey Through Addictions To Salvation: A New Beginning, his revealing, eye-opening new memoir.

About The Book
I was entrenched in alcohol and drugs for a long period of time. I was lost and adrift, with no future. When God helped me find my way and turned me to recovery in 2005, doors opened that I could not have imagined.

Volunteering at numerous places such as the Orillia Youth Centre, Telecare distress phone line, and Bethel Baptist Church, allowed me to receive the Lieutenant Governor’s Community Volunteer Award for Students and be nominated for both the “Order of Orillia Award” and Orillia Citizen of the Year 2012.

In 2006, I returned to school to get my high school diploma and now have diplomas in Addictions and Social Service Worker. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts and Science Degree in Psychology at Lakehead University. Today, I am a motivational speaker and plan to use my experience and my Christian faith to empower troubled youth. Nothing is impossible, and dreams can come true!

For an enticing preview of My Journey Through Addictions To Salvation, visit Moore’s official website to view its compelling book trailer:

My Journey Through Addictions To Salvation is available as a digital download from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other retailers. The book is also available in paperback format ($17.95, ISBN: 9781483957531, 156 pp). For more information, please visit

About The Author
Robert Moore was totally destitute. Homeless and alone, he had alienated his friends and family with his drug and alcohol addiction, and had nowhere to turn. He thought his journey was over, and his path was at a dead end. Then, a miracle happened…

Robert Moore has done what historically very few people have been able to do: come back from a long history of drug and alcohol addiction, a life with no purpose, no education and no hope, to a place of hope, completing an education, and accomplishing goals at a breakneck speed. All while at the same time writing his autobiography and doing motivational speaking, to help others who are also on this long and difficult path.

This is the story of a man who was once driven by demons and is now driven by hope, courage and the desire for a better life. Robert was able to reach out to God and the church for help to get past those demons, and take the right path towards salvation and his true life path.

My Journey Through Addiction to Salvation: A New Beginning tells Robert’s story, from his youth to where he is today. Whether you are someone who is somewhere on this journey yourself, someone helping others, or a passerby, you need to read this inspiring story and be inspired yourself by Robert’s journey.

Robert is also available for motivational speaking, and has been interviewed on Inspirational Transformational TV Show, Rogers TV (Catching up with Kelly), and Rogers TV (Barrie Daytime).

My Journey Through Addiction to Salvation: A New Beginning is available through Robert’s website at and online through Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Chapters Indigo.

New Book: Grace of the Cast off Cross – The Decision is Always Ours

In March of 1942 7,000 American, British, and Dutch Japanese POWs on the island of Java were ordered into camps. Dolf Unger, a Corporal in the Dutch Royal Army was one of these soldiers. Newly married with an infant daughter Dolf was not to see his wife and daughter for over three years. This book is a compilation of articles, letters, and mementoes documenting his camp experiences. Dolf’s story is not just one of survival, but of spiritual transformation.

For Dolf this transformation began one cold fall day when he was forced to shovel scrap metal. In a moment of utter despair; as he cried out silently to God, he kicked a pile of scrap metal. God’s answer came in the form of a perfectly shaped four-inch iron cross, which landed on his boot. Dolf soon became involved in a Christian community in the camp called “The Church Under The Cross”. The spiritual growth and transformation of this community of sick, starving, and often beaten men offers a greater context to Dolf’s own spiritual Journey.

That Dolf’s witness and that of “The Church Under The Cross” speaks so unerringly to the church and culture of our own time hints that God’s providential hand is at work here. It witnesses to the many churches to mired in outdated tradition, and legalistic doctrine to the meet the challenges of a cynical materialistic culture. It also offers a powerful witness to the individual Christian that we can experience the saving, and liberating love of Christ even when our external circumstances seem hopeless.

How to Order:

E-Book Kindle Edition just released for $3.99 on

Book Price is $16.95 and may be ordered by sending a check to the church – St. John’s United Church of Christ, 8065 William Penn Highway, Easton, PA 18045-2938. Shipping is included – no extra shipping charge.

Inventory Management Specialist Phillip Slater Releases New e-Book The Optimization Trap

In a move that capitalizes on technology’s ability to provide written works through mobile devices and financially supports community philanthropies, The Optimization Trap has been recently released exclusively in digital format. Written by inventory management expert Phillip Slater, the book is now available on Kindle, Kobo, Nook, iPad, Sony, and other e-readers. Mr. Slater’s previous books were published in hard copy by Industrial Press, New York, the world’s oldest industrial education publisher.

Mr. Slater will donate 100% of the proceeds from this e-Book to the Initiate Action Community Fund, a sub fund of The Australian Communities Foundation (ACF), that Phillip and Mercedes Slater established in 2011 to support educational initiatives and causes.  The Australian Community Foundation (previously Melbourne Community Foundation) aims to generate and distribute philanthropic resources to address emerging social issues and to meet the needs of its communities.

“Digitally publishing The Optimization Trap achieves many goals for me: the digital format not only provides readers with more accessibility, but it costs less to purchase. Using a digital format also allows us to channel 100% of the proceeds into our Initiate Action Community Fund which supports various educational causes through ACF,” said Mr. Slater.

Following years of helping companies improve their profit and reduce working capital, Mr. Slater wrote The Optimization Trap to help managers understand why optimization programs often fail to achieve their intended results. The book exposes the pitfalls of optimization programs while offering viable solutions. Based on Mr. Slater’s years of experience in inventory management, he identifies optimization traps and illustrates how to remedy these and achieve peak performance in operations.

“Improving operational outcomes typically involves optimization. It is what managers do. However, sometimes when seeking to optimize, people take actions that, without realizing it, limit both their options and their results. This is what I call the Optimization Trap,” stated Mr. Slater. “How do you make sure that you don’t get caught in the optimization trap and, if you do, how do you get free? This book identifies the key principles to both identify and be free of the ‘trap’.”

Similar to best selling management books such as The Goal, Who Moved My Cheese, and Fish!, The Optimization Trap uses an easy to read narrative style. By using inventory management as the example, Mr. Slater is able to address familiar, realistic everyday scenarios faced by managers and discuss how to apply the principles for avoiding the Optimization Trap. This book speaks not just to inventory managers; its tips and principles are applicable to any situation where managers are seeking to achieve optimal performance in its operations.

“Here’s a family you won’t forget. And reading about them will brighten your day and deepen your faith.

You’ll find 16 reasons for being joyfully counter-cultural.”

Superb! Superb! Superb! March 28, 2011I read this book at least once a year. I am now in my fourth reading since purchasing it. You will fall in love with this large, Irish Catholic family, as I have. Jim and Kathleen Littleton are devout Catholics who have not been afraid to make radical choices when it comes to living a Christ-centered life or raising a family in such a way that goes completely against the grain of the dominant culture. They have been such an inspiration to me. In fact, after my husband read this book, he decided to become a Catholic! The Littletons have 14 living children. In this book, they will share with you what they are convinced are God’s Hierarchy of Values, namely, God, Spouse, Children, Work, and then Service Work/Apostolate. They also discuss Marriage, Motherhood, Openness to Life, Formation of Children, Service, Cross-Carrying, and the necessity of possessing a sense of humor. Whenever I become discouraged as a parent, I know that it’s time to take this book off of the shelf and read it again. It is the only Catholic book on parenting and devotion that I continue to read over and over again. I eagerly await their next book, and hope that one day, there will be one. 5.0 out of 5 stars Superb! Superb! Superb! March 28, 2011 By Tara ( Alamogordo, NM)

Jim and Kathleen are a beautiful example of understanding, living, and teaching the Catholic faith. I felt like I wanted to be adopted by them! 5.0 out of 5 stars Motivating, October 12, 2007 By Suzanne Earl St. Joseph, pray for us! ( Illinois )

This book is proof that current cultural wisdom is wrong and that the Catholic teaching on openness to life is right. Who knows better, you or God? The Littletons are an excellent example of the generosity God is asking for. One important lesson pointed out by James and Kathleen Littleton is that the world looks at children as a burden which actually belittles the contribution that children bring. They are not just empty stomachs and brains demanding to be fed and sent to college. They are persons who contribute to the family from the day they are brought into it–and more and more as they mature. This book was like a pleasant stroll through a different world in which values were properly prioritized. I only wish there were more anecdotes about the children’s interaction with each other and the hostile world. I loved the one about two older kids saving 10 seats in a theater during the previews while the younger ones waited in the lobby so they didn’t have to look at all the junk in the previews. A good gift for your teenaged sons and daughters. A mandatory gift for Pre-Cana classes. Good idea for Engaged- and Marriage Encounter Weekend attendees.

Is Paradise Possible In Today’s World? — In his book “Power of Paradise ~ Inventing The Future With A Choice,” the author Dave Skye unveils how the power of choices and decisions, can affect every thing we do, creating ripples strong enough to define a new global age.

Dave Skye in one of his writings shows how the word Black by its literal definition is designed to be the one of the worst of definitions ever created, and does not create room for it to be racially embraced simply by the psychological foundation on which Black has been defined. The Author contends in this first of his stories, that if the definition remains as it is, whether its true or not, the world would have a hard way harnessing the best impact of the African populous in the world. The alternative he gives is truly worth considering.

However, the writer Dave Skye also takes us to the level of a mind-body conscious society, whose every step weighs the balance of decisions for the best harmony of the world, and the advancement of a culture of people you could very much term as living in a Paradisiacal age. How does science impact the world and how do powerful people make a difference in the world? How do the rich leave behind the strength of character that makes generations yet unborn thank them for coming to this earth?

In the book “Power Of Paradise”, the different writings (short stories) summarize different sets of keys to understanding the character one must embrace to bring about the greatest changes in the world.

Who you are and what you become is almost always defined by the world you live in, except you decide to re-define your world. This world you bring about could be radically different from what you know today, and could be the key to everything this world needs to be.

Dallas Pastor Ed Young Praises New Initiatives on Marital Intimacy

Typically, the very notion of marital intimacy is regarded as something of a punch line. Many sitcoms and movies make fun of the idea that married people enjoy good sex, and indeed, the stereotype is that marriage and passion are mutually exclusive. Recent reports have found that this is far from the case, however, as many married couples are embracing a regular intimate life as crucial for sustaining marital happiness. The Huffington Post offers insight into how some married couples are carving out intimate time together, and the report offers affirmation to the teachings of Dallas pastor Ed Young.

According to the Huffington article, spending time together is important for sustaining a healthy intimate life, which is in turn foundational for a healthy marriage. The article cites a recent study, finding that couples that spend time together at least once throughout the week are 3.5 times happier in bed. As the article points out, this time spent together means something akin to a date, not an occasion where children or household chores are in the cards.

The article confirms what Ed Young, Dallas author and pastor, has been saying for years, most recently in a new book called Sexperiment. Released earlier this year, Sexperiment encourages Christian married couples to spend time together, suggesting this time ultimately lays the foundation for a happy marriage—especially when that time spent together is intimate time.

Indeed, Ed Young’s book is largely devoted to the notion that a regular, healthy sex life is crucial for keeping a marriage strong and satisfying. In it, the pastor encourages Christian married couples to have sex together at least once per day for a week, and then to evaluate how it affects their marriage overall.

Ed Young’s book has won national media attention for its candid and honest discussion of sex as seen through the paradigm of the Bible. While other prominent pastors and authors have recently spoken out on the same topic, Sexperiment is unique for offering practical insight and tips on how creating a regular intimate life can be beneficial.

In fact, much of the book details the pragmatic benefits that a regular sex life can provide to married couples. Some of these benefits include more consistent communication, a stronger sense of purity, and a greater understanding of God’s purpose for the marriage. In addition to recommending the book for Christian married couples, the Dallas minister also endorses Sexperiment’s use for church-wide discussion and Sunday School groups.


Ed Young is the founding pastor of Fellowship Church in Dallas, Texas. He has written more than a dozen books, including his latest release, Sexperiment: 7 Days to Lasting Intimacy with Your Spouse. The book, written alongside wife, Lisa, has garnered a great deal of attention for its unconventional take on the importance of sex within a marriage. While many religious leaders avoid the topic, Ed Young has preached the importance of intimacy within a marriage for years. The new book includes practical tips for Christian married couples seeking to develop a regular, creative, and passionate intimate life.

Magazine Subscriptions Demystify Online Shopping

Forrester research indicates that, by the end of 2011, Americans will spend around $200 billion in online purchases. They also predict that by the year 2015, U.S. retail sales will well surpass the $275 billion mark. This growth in ecommerce is being attributed to existing shoppers pushing their online shopping boundaries by purchasing more items off the World Wide Web like home appliances and furniture in addition to increasing spending in traditionally popular online shopping categories such as books and media. Also driving the numbers are consumers who are turning to the internet as a shopping resource for the very first time.

Print magazine publishers are looking to be a part of this dynamic and rapidly expanding online retail marketplace. By partnering with various online retail sites, popular discount magazines which are available as low cost, promotional subscriptions and have over the years cultivated a loyal readership base, will be able to avail their readers of opportunities to buy items featured within their publications via online sales portals.

Magazine aficionados who hold their magazine subscriptions dear will find the explorations being made by publishers to harmonize print magazine content with online retail sites advantageous. Magazine lovers need not renounce their love for the printed periodical but can use it instead as a trusted guide to chaperone them through their online shopping experience. Magazines and cheap magazine subscriptions will become especially invaluable tools for all consumers who feel intimidated when purchasing items from the internet or who have heretofore felt reluctant to shop online.

In recent years, many publications have shifted their focus from print to digital magazines, in some cases completely revamping their online presence. While some have found great success in the switch, making the entire magazine available online, while others have struggled to get footholds in the online arena opting to only post specific content from the current issue. In either case, the content is usually free, which leads to the other problem: whether or not online magazines are profitable from a business standpoint. The primary reason for this trepidation is that the internet is still considered an unstable marketing tool.

Magazine lovers however can enjoy a choice of online or print magazines and save on annual subscriptions, sometimes getting a whole year’s worth of magazines for the cost of just two or three at stand prices.
