"How High Will You Climb?"

disclaimer:  I received the following book for free from BookLook Bloggers in exchange for my honest opinions.  All opinions remain my own.
"How High Will You Climb"
by John C. Maxwell
  Mommy in PA:  "How High Will You Climb" is an abridgment of "The Winning Attitude" by John C. Maxwell.  Maxwell gives his thoughts about how we are never truly alone and that God helps guide us through problems and helps us correct our negative attitudes into positive attitudes if we just follow his words in the Bible. 
  He describes a person as being like an airplane.  We keep our noses up by using a positive attitude and not letting things bring us down.  "Problems" are not really problems but more like obstacles (much like turbulence) that can bring our plane crashing to the ground unless we find ways to grow from our mistakes.  He basically compares a plane's altitude to our own attitude.  The better your attitude the higher you will fly...gotta love that motivation!
  There are four main sections of the book (each having 3-4 of the chapters).  Section one is about considering your attitude (attitude can be the difference of success versus failure), section two is about the construction of your attitude (why we are the way we are), section three is about the crashing of your attitude (did I make the right decision at the wrong time?), and section four is about changing your attitude (eliminating the negatives). 
  John gives examples throughout the book of times in the Bible when people were in similar situations that we come across and how they dealt with them. 
  I love that he gives good examples of all of his ideas.  There wasn't one time in this book where I was left wondering what he was talking about.  At the end of every chapter he has a review section.  It is called the "Attitude Application".  Basically it makes you take what he explains in that chapter and apply it to something in your current life. 
  The "Study Guide" in the back is a great resource.  I think that it would be handy to reassess yourself every few months to see how far you've come. 
  This book fits great into the positive thinking mode I am in right now : )

How to Stay Sane in a Crazy World

Disclaimer:  I received this book for free from Hay House USA in exchange for my honest opinions.  All opinions remain my own.
"How to Stay Sane in a Crazy World:  A Modern Book of Hours to Soothe the Soul"
By:  Sophia Stuart
  So I bet you are wondering "What exactly is a book of hours?"  A book of hours was given to women of noble birth during the Middle Ages as a devotional object that gave them time to pause for a few moments to become spiritually refreshed.  This book is a modern day version of that and is meant to help us take a few moments to just let the crazy world go.
  Sophia Stuart was living a very busy life until she found out she had three tumors in her throat that would need to be removed followed by almost a month of being cooped up in her apartment.  Sophia's book is intended to help her readers realize that sometimes you just have to step back and relax.  Let the world go on without you for awhile and clear the clutter from your mind before it makes you ill.
  Mommy in PA:  My daughter is always trying to steal my books before I get a chance to read them.  This one she opened up and right away exclaimed "Mom, this is a picture book".  About half an hour later she returned with the book because she said she was done reading it already. 
  The book is mostly pictures but it is the soothing message behind the photos that you must focus on...relaxation.  The book is meant to help us stop stressing as it is no good for your health.  Along with the pictures are ideas to help you relax.  Too often we think that if we take time for ourselves to relax, read a book, etc. that we are being selfish but sometimes that time is necessary to keep us from becoming ill.
  The photos were taken by Sophia herself from her travels around the world.  There are also some beautiful still life photos taken from when she was stuck in her apartment during her medical leave.  The book is divided into three sections (morning, afternoon, and evening).  Morning is for dreaming, afternoon is for inspiration, and evening is for exhalation.
  I can totally imagine finding this book in a doctor's office waiting room or anybody's coffee table.  An easy read but full of clever relaxation ideas that will help us take better care of ourselves. 
  There is also an awesome shopping section at the back of the book that contains items/music/movies that Sophia recommends.  Also be sure to check out Sophia's website at

Mommy in GA:  Little Passports, U.S set,  was a really cool set and I didn't even have to leave the house to get it!!!  It came right to my door....... My 8 year old hung the map on her wall and loves to look at all the places she would like to go.

The kids' had alot of fun getting everything out of the box and especially loved the camera that was included :)

They enjoyed looking at the cool stuff and "planning trips" around the world ( you know packing a bag and pretending to be somewhere else all while playing in their bedrooms!!!!)

Check out this cute suitcase that your child can keep all of their adventure stuff in!!!

Here's everything that came in the first month's kit (this is the world subscription package).

Mommy in PA:  I got this kit for my 8 year old son who wants to be an archaeologist.  I figured the world kit would be perfect for him to learn about all the places he could go.  Unfortunately he showed no interest in the kit at all, except for the map. 

I personally think this is an excellent idea and would work wonderfully as part of a homeschooling curriculum.  I still can't believe my son didn't love it, he does tend to have a love for learning practically anything but I wonder if this kit just seemed like more "homework" to him. 
Little Passports was kind enough to offer one of our readers a free three month subscription of Little Passports of their very own.  For your chance to win just enter via the Rafflecopter form below.  Good Luck Everyone!
