Sister Dear

What if you were accused of a crime you didn't commit?  What if you spent years locked away in jail for that crime?  Now you are out on parole and you want to clear your name and start a new life.  This is Allie Marshall's story in Sister Dear by Laura McNeill.  This is truly a riveting story - you feel for Allie and her challenge of assimilating back into a small town that is having a hard time forgiving and moving on....even her own daughter wants almost nothing to do with her.  McNeill crafts a story that will keep readers wanting to find out what is coming next and to learn how Allie can overcome this gigantic hurdle and maybe prove her own innocence - even at the cost of family....

McNeill is an author to watch!  Don't miss this excellent Christian fiction title.

8 Simple Tools for Raising Great Kids

Is there anything simple about raising kids?  I don't think so!  But there are tools out there that can help make raising kids easier.  Advice from those that have gone before you can NEVER hurt!  Dr. Todd Cartmell, a clinic child psychologist and author, has written 8 Simple Tools for Raising Great Kids and it breaks up parenting into 8 different tools:


For each tool, Cartmell provides Connecting Tips and very useful advice that parents can take and put into action immediately.  This book is so practical and relate-able that anyone can take it and make it work for them.  The chapters are short and make it possible for even the busiest parents to find time to chew on parenting tips.  I was impressed with this parenting tool - it's a book written for the average man with practical, down-to-earth, ideas.
