Journeys can be long or short,

Dangerous or safe,

Topsy-turvy,

Bumpy, curvy

And wind a million ways.

Each one different, just like you, and special in its way.


Can you help Christian figure out

Which path to take today?


In this fun-to-read, rhyming picture book, we join Christian on his journey to find his friend. Along the way, we learn valuable lessons about thinking for ourselves and making good choices.

Life was good…until a one-night stand changed everything.

Morgan Anderson, a custom bike builder, spent years forging an impassive existence and cultivating a guarded heart. He perfected an indifference no one outside his family could penetrate. Little did he know that giving in to temptation would change the trajectory of what he valued most. But putting aside his steadfast hold on his emotions might be his very undoing.

Graphic designer and marketing CEO, Ann Marie Tosto vowed never to let love tear her down again. After facing deep disappointment and betrayal, she turned her back on relationships. She found peace in her success and strength in her autonomy. Yet when history repeats itself, she has to decide if her independence or trusting another person is more important.

When love comes knocking, can Morgan and Ann Marie find the courage to answer?

Susan Hayes has had a crush on Pax for years, but after her mother's death, the Andersons became her surrogate family and she won't risk her relationship with them. Her thriving animal shelter helps keep her thoughts off Pax, but when he chooses her shelter for a fundraising event, her resolve goes up in smoke.

Book Blitz: Inspiration Coffee and Wisdom Tea for a Hectic Day by Peter G. Vu #promo #selfhelp #inspirational #spiritual #excerpt #rabtbooktours @BookBuzznet

 

Self-Help, Inspirational, Spiritual

Date Published: June 2022

Publisher: International Book Media

A Wonderful Companion for Your Hectic Life and a Modern Safety Shield in a Dangerous World.

Like our daily coffee and tea, I try to keep the two daily sayings and their reflections short and sweet. This book is designed simply to give us a quick spiritual boost as we try to run from one task to another on our “hectic day”. Although the short-term goal of this book is to help us get through “a hectic day” with joy and purpose, its long-term focus is to fine tune our characters and make us better people at home, at work, at worshipping place, in the neighborhood, and in other places. This world would be like Heaven if there is less fighting, arguing, and killing. We cannot get our cup of coffee, latte, or tea these days without worrying that a crazy lunatic would come in with a deadly weapon to gun us down like an animal or a bomb to blow us up. We certainly cannot enjoy anything in a world like that. This situation needs to be stopped and it begins with us. We need to talk and act differently than what we see on the news or witness in our world every day. When we can do that, we help change the world one person at the time and others hopefully will follow our example. This transformation will not only make our world a better place but also make us feel much better about ourselves.

The Covid-19 pandemic also has affected us all in every way – young and old, weak and strong, women and men. Many of us have lost a family member or friend to this virus, or known someone who has experienced this loss. A self-help book like this will give you the tools and daily exercises that can create the right condition for your body and spirit to restore itself with the divine help.



Excerpt

Kites rise highest against the wind, not with it. (Winston Churchill) (1001 Quotes, pg 13)

Inspiring Morning Mojo: We love to fly high like a kite and enjoy much success in our lives. But, great success comes when we dare to buck the trend and go against the current. Today I am willing to go against the typical ways and do something different to achieve great result.

The more they were oppressed, the more they multiplied and spread. (Exodus 1:12) (Bible Quotations, pg 7)

Words of Encouragement: The enemies tried to oppress God’s people and hoped to exterminate them. But, they multiplied and grew stronger. Likewise, a long, hectic day might try to scare and discourage me. But, I will work harder and dream bigger with a new day.
