The story line of Finding Your Fit is engaging and defines basic terminology in a way that is easy to comprehend for children. Children identify with the main character Gabby, as she learns to live a healthy lifestyle and develop positive self-esteem. Woven through the story are talking points and reflective journaling writing opportunities where children can express their thoughts and emotions, while parents can keep gather valuable information through this form of communication. Finding Your Fit opens the lines of communication and support that children are often lacking as they begin to develop self-esteem and identity. Bibliotherapy (using books to assist in problem solving relevant to the therapeutic process) is a valuable intervention for helping children cope with stressors and can provide structured communication between caregivers and children.
Finding Your Fit is a valuable resource for families, therapists, school personnel, and other professionals who work with children on the topics of fitness, nutrition, and development of positive self-esteem and acceptance.
Into the Temporal Mind by Aileen S. Allison
Do blondes have more fun in life, or do they just concentrate on their problems? While Joanna Cooperman struggles with her own sanity, she finds herself in the crosshairs of good versus evil. But the line that divides them are blurred, and she must go through hell to get back to reality. Inspired by actual events, Into the Temporal Mind takes you on a real-world search for contentment in life. Unlike many books on bipolar disorder, it does not give advice on treatment, but instead provides a view of Joanna’s journey down a path that many hoped would lead her to failure. Inspired by the author’s own struggles, readers will find hope amidst the day-to-day challenges of life in the temporal mind.
The Way of the Warrior by Ronald Paul Hill
We exist in a mechanized world that only George Orwell could have imagined. The constant distractions often cause a lack of attention to the most important events and relationships in our lives. The best path forward is not easy and requires mindfulness and focus beyond our current levels of discipline. The way of the warrior presented gives up illusions of connectivity for a lived reality of greater interpersonal clarity.
