Holding Out For Love (Windswept Bay #5) by Debra Clopton

This new series is set in Windswept Bay-beach area and introduces the 9 Sinclair siblings through out the series of books.

Brothers: Levi, Can, Jake, Max, Trent
Sisters: Cali, Shar, Olivia, Jillian

I have absolutely LOVED every single book in this series. Every time I read one of the ebooks, I think its my favorite-until I read the next one! They just keep getting better and better.

This story focuses on Jill Sinclair and begins with her getting terrible news about her health from the doctor. Jill desperately wants to have children, but doesn’t even have a husband and the doctor tells her that her body may not be able to get pregnant or carry any babies if she waits much longer to get pregnant.

Undercover cop, Ryan Locke returns to Windswept Bay but Jill tries to avoid him at all costs because of how embarrassing their last meeting was. Since Ryan is good friends with her brothers and parents; Jill is forced to confront her feelings and embarrassment.

Clean, romantic, fun, Christian ebook. I highly recommend this series!

Let Food Be Your Medicine: Dietary Changes Proven to Prevent and Reverse Disease by Don Colbert #LetFoodBeYourMedicine

Let Food Be Your Medicine: Dietary Changes Proven to Prevent and Reverse Disease by Don Colbert

This book was released less than a month ago. I was able to get an early release of it for review and have enjoyed reading and learning these past couple of weeks. If you don’t have much knowledge about “clean” or healthy eating, this book and lifestyle suggested may be hard to grasp or overwhelming. I know a couple of years ago, I probably wouldn’t have considered it. But over the years I have read a lot of heath books and have seen first hand with my own health and family; how important it is to stay away from certain foods and food chemicals.

This is my first book that I’ve read by this author who also happens to be a medical doctor. I was surprised how many health issue he has had as a doctor. I guess I just assumed he would be naturally healthy. Dr. Colbert spent many years and a lot of money doing his own personal research and testing his theories about eating certain foods and how our body responds to food positive or negative. I thought this would be a book that I would want to skim, but I have thoroughly enjoyed reading every page about his personal journey, his findings and his suggestions.

Dr. Colbert suggests applying the Mediterranean diet and includes some modifications based on food allergies or what specific symptom or disease you ware wanting to treat. He has chapters on how to beat Cardiovascular diseases, arthritis and autoimmune, type 2 diabetes, fighting cancer, dementia and Alzheimer’s, ADHD and Autism, mental illness.

He also includes a 21 day meal plan, shopping lists, supplement list and pesticide list while shopping for fresh veggies and fruits. I will be looking over the 21 day plan again with my husband and we will be trying the recipes and suggestions. I personally can not have dairy or gluten so I’m looking forward to trying the Mediterranean diet like he suggests. I hesitate to use the term “diet” because I feel like this kind of eating should be a lifestyle change if you’re going to commit to eating like that.

As I was reading the book about foods and inflammation and some of his suggestions (like not eating the same foods every single day), I had a lot of “ah ha” moments and it made a lot of sense. I can’t wait to try his meal plan and recipes. He uses a lot of normal meats, veggies and fruits-nothing too weird.

If you’re ready to be healthy and want to learn about food chemicals and inflammation, then I think you will really enjoy this book!

I received a copy of this book complimentary for blog and social media review. All opinions are my own.

About the Book
Most of us think God is not concerned with what we eat, but the Bible actually offers great insight and instruction about the effects of food on our bodies. Dr. Colbert introduces a revolutionary sugar detox method, combined with an anti-inflammatory form of the modified Mediterranean diet that resolves a broad spectrum of diseases, including diabetes, heart disease, dementia, cancer, and osteoarthritis. Just imagine — understanding how food alone can produce mental clarity, balanced weight, and longevity. Includes meal plans.

I love getting books like this for my son to practice recognizing letters and beginning reading. I love that its an easy Bible storybook which makes it perfect to bring to church with us for quiet reading. My 6 year old loved the pictures and was able to pick out lots of words that he recognized. The book is a smaller size which makes it easy for kids hands to hold and carry around. We really enjoyed reading it as a family together.

I received a copy of this book complimentary for blog and social media review. All opinions are my own.

About the Book:
Your family will love this Bible storybook in the popular rebus style with pictures sprinkled between words, allowing your little ones to read along with you! Kids will love to engage with the Bible stories by pointing out the pictures among the words to tell the story. This is a proven way to help children learn and retain the stories through interaction. In the rebus format, children see the picture key, learn the word, and then complete the sentence using the correct picture. This gives children positive learning and interactive reading time.
 
Stories include: Adam and Eve and the Sneaky Snake, Noah and the Big Boat, Moses and the Ten Commandments, David and the Giant, Mary’s Big Surprise, Jesus Stops a Storm, Jesus Goes to Heaven, and A Promise to All God’s Children
