Throughout most of human history we’ve been divided—stuck in structured behavior patterns and belief systems and confined to the stark cultural boundaries of a manmade world. It’s a way of life that has led to feelings of confusion and loneliness, a constant sense of lacking as we search for something more.
But as intelligence and creativity continue to expand, a change in thinking is on the horizon, and an increase in awareness has begun to pave the way toward unity. While leaving the old perspectives of traditional religion and science behind, more individuals are learning to tune into a universal force, discovering new and exciting ways of looking at human existence.
One Moment in Life is an exploration of these groundbreaking insights about self-awareness, the concept of the universe, and human life as a whole. Awaken to humankind’s true potential with refreshing new content that challenges the outdated belief systems of yore, and offers alternative ways of thinking that will allow anyone to tap into a larger and more universal consciousness.

Disclaimer: Some elements of marketing are complex. I will try my best to break these elements down in easy ways for every beginner marketer to understand, in what I like to call blonde terms. This is not a stab at blondes. I am a blonde. I just do not like the term dumb things down because people reading this book are not dumb. When people do not know about something; it seems foreign to them. Even if the subject is simple, if insider jargon is used constantly, the subject becomes obscure. So, I will try my best to include a blonde definition when things get a bit technical. This way marketing novices do not get overwhelmed and can get the most out of this book. After reading this, every beginner marketer will have enough understanding of marketing to start building their brand and creating more connections with their audience.
If you are pregnant for the first time, the thought of having a baby may be rather frightening. You have seen the movies of the women screaming for epidurals and may wonder, "Is that what having a baby is really like?" Angel Leya decided to share her experiences with pregnancy and natural childbirth, a decision that went against the grain of modern convention and popular opinion. With the help of her husband and doula, she was able to achieve her goals. This book is full of her experiences and includes plenty of useful information to help you prepare for your own labor and childbirth.
We went on vacations that included camping and boating. We shared birthday parties, did chores, walked to school, ran track, watched TV, made up scary stories like “The Man with the Golden Arm”, had crazy Halloween parties, sold World's Finest Chocolate Bars and P-Nuttles in a can, did the hide in the trunk routine to get into the drive-in theater for free, did our makeup, got tickled until we almost had an accident, fought, cried, and braided our hair.
Eventually, it was just me at home with Mom and Dad. In my mind, I was still being pushed down the hallway in an upside down stool by one sister, while the Green Monster (oldest sister in a green blanket with a hole in it for her eye) was chasing me as I screamed my head off. Then, all of a sudden, it was time to grow up.
One-on-one discussions about morals and values were not Mom and Dad’s natural parenting style. And we didn’t grow up in a Christian household. I strongly believe if these attributes were present in my childhood, likely there would have been no need for my reckless search for love.
All in all, I think I had a wonderful upbringing compared to most, but I can clearly see how important it was for me to have a well-balanced relationship with my dad, with love affirmations to anchor my heart. I always wanted to please him but didn’t know how, and he didn’t know how to give the kind of affirming love this young girl desperately needed.
If most of us gals are honest, we grew up desiring to meet our Knight in Shining Armor, the one who would rescue us from..........well, you fill in the blanks. I'm sure you could find something. Then we started the process to find him! Some gals are blessed to find him, some unfortunately never find him, and some are blessed to find him eventually after a lot of heartache and pain like me.
It's okay to compromise your own principles to win a potential husband. Right? Isn't he supposed to be our first ministry, top priority? No! WARNING! WARNING! WARNING! ALIENS APPROACHING! DANGER! NOTHING BUT LIES!
The messages that have been played to us all our lives have had powerful influence in forming our thoughts about life.
Have you ever had any of the following thoughts?
“He has low self-esteem, that’s why he accuses me of things and doesn’t want me to spend time with anyone else but him, but I can help him feel better about himself”.
My heart pounded and tears flowed down my cheeks. I felt so alone. A sick feeling of rejection began to cover me like a dark heavy blanket. I felt swelling waves of fear and despair wash over me again and again.
There before the judge, I pleaded to find my husband. His response was harsh and demeaning. He pounded both his fists on the desk as if my plea was a complete waste of his time. He yelled, “You're husband is not here and even if he was, he does not want to see you!”
If you're pregnant for the first time, the thought of birthing your child may be rather frightening. You've seen the movies and heard the horrific birthing stories - women screaming and cursing the men who impregnated them. Will that really be what you’ll go through?
Natural birth stories don’t have to look like that, which is why Angel Leya decided to share her experience. Learning how to face childbirth without fear, she was able to overcome the difficulties of labor, birthing naturally not once, but twice. My Natural Birth Story is not only a testimony and touching experience, but a natural childbirth guide for women looking to go natural for the first time. There are links to a plethora of helpful information – from diet and exercise tips, to preparing for various tests that doctors require of pregnant women.
Although not her preference, her experience with natural childbirth in a hospital gave her a unique perspective, which she’s more than happy to share. She hopes you’ll enjoy reading her story as much as she enjoyed sharing it.
The perfect book for new authors unfamiliar with the self-publishing process and the pitfalls of marketing your first eBook. This book covers all the essentials for publishing without all the nonsense. It is filled with a number of examples of the many money traps out there offering secret formulas for success and other horse hockey designed to coerce new authors out of their hard earned money.
A new model for etiquette –that goes beyond traditional etiquette –is needed to keep our public-behavior-wheels turning smoothly. Without it, daily life will continue to be a mine-field where people stumble culturally-- creating the impression that they are ‘culturally clueless’. In The Don't Get Me Started! Toolkit Strategies for a Culturally-Challenged World we offer a toolkit of skills for skillfully assessing and responding to the many challenging situations you may encounter in this rapidly changing world. So whether you are playing games online, using a ‘gender-free’ restroom, sharing a picture on Facebook, conversing with friends in a café, applying in person for a new job or hosting an intergenerational event – you will be able to determine how the rules have changed and act in a manner that assures more successful outcomes. Being ‘culturally-clueless’ may not land you in jail…but it could very well make you less competitive in the job marketplace, less admired among your peers and less respected within your family
Plotless, senseless, with little or no redeeming social value, Resumes That Work satirizes the seemingly endless stream of “How to get a job” psychobabble foisted on the weary job seeker through books, websites, conferences, and workshops each year.
This irrational little tome turns the basic job-search concept on its head working off the assumption that job hunters would really rather do anything but grovel for work.
That being the case, fictitious author Dave Doolittle outlines strategies to embarrass, infuriate, and alienate human resources, interviewers, and bosses, thereby insuring the reader will both avoid gainful employment and have a great time doing it.
Sections are included on writing resumes and cover letters, how to behave at interviews, what to do if you already have a job, and testimonials from satisfied customers. Both text and absurd illustrations – which are a mix of cartoon and reality – are littered with allusions to literature, film, art, and popular culture, adding a further dimension for those who like to puzzle such things out.
The book – Speak Up and Stay Alive, a patient advocate hospital survival guide, is the result of several years of research and interviews in addition to real life mishaps. A trip to the hospital can be dangerous. Every year hospital errors claim roughly 450,000 lives.
Heart attacks are misdiagnosed 47 percent of the time. Why are women the common victims?
Hospital death rates increase up to 34% in July.
Why do these things happen? What can you do about them? How can you be safe? The book tells all.
Listed on the recommended reading list of the U.S. Army Medical Department.
