"Angels for Higher" chronicles the joyfully inspirational journey of Robert Hendershot, a recovering alcoholic, and his son Trevor, who has Down syndrome, as they seek God's will for their lives. <br /><br />The practical lessons God taught Robert in his recovery have helped him to become a better father to Trevor, and vice versa, the spiritual lessons God taught him as Trevor's dad have helped him to remain sober for over twenty years. <br /><br />At the beginning of Trevor's freshman year he was bullied, called names and told he was worthless. Nevertheless, at the start of his senior year, the faculty drafted Trevor onto the homecoming court, and then his classmates elected him Homecoming King in the greatest landslide in his high school's history--he received more votes than the other four candidates combined. <br /><br />Trevor was also told that the best job he could every hope for would be folding towels in the basement of a hotel laundromat. However, after graduating, in 2012 he first was hired by Major League Baseball's Los Angeles Angels, and then in 2013 by the National Hockey League's Anaheim Ducks to be the Greeter in their respective Team Stores. Trevor is still known, admired and often loved hundreds of thousands of sports fans, fellow employees and professional athletes.<br /><br />Robert and Trevor are in the process of forming a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation, Angels for Higher, to help facilitate the "Trevorizing" of additional stadiums and arenas. Their mission is to encourage the hiring of individuals with Down syndrome, like Trevor, to work as greeters (and pro-life ambassadors) at sports venues across the USA, North America and ultimately around the world. Their vision is to transform the pro-life, special needs culture of the world...one sports stadium at a time. <br /><br />"Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine..." (Ephesians 3:20)

<b><i>1% Fitness</i> includes free lifetime access to a dedicated members site where you can download all 14 weeks of workouts and watch all of the corresponding exercises from the book. It's web-based, so you can view it from any computer, and all smartphone devices.</b><br /><br />With everything else we seek efficiency. Whether preparing food, surfing the internet, or commuting to work, we're looking for the smallest investment in time for the greatest return. Many times this means paying a little up front; which depending on our circumstances, the majority is obliged to do.<br /><br /><i>Well what if I told you the same efficiency was possible with exercise?</i><br /><br />That all of the fat loss, muscle gain, cardiovascular and metabolic improvements, and reduction in disease risk and mortality can be achieved in far less time.<br /><br />If you're already exercising this means more free time, so it's an easy decision. If you're not already exercising, it's just as easy; as once you understand that the investment in time is less than 100 minutes per week (1%), it's a no brainer.<br /><i><br />"Give me 1% of your week, and I'll give you the body you've always wanted...with maybe even more time to enjoy it."

<hr /><hr /><br /><strong>The 21-Day Self-Confidence Challenge, the 9<sup>th</sup> book in the 21-Day Challenge series!</strong> <br /><br /><br /><em>Are you tired of self-doubt, self-criticism and holding back? Do you often feel like you're not good enough?</em><br /><br /><em>Are you ready to change your life and reclaim your self-confidence? </em><br /><br /><br />Lets start with a thought experiment. Take a moment to imagine yourself, only a supremely confident version. If you have a ridiculous imagination like I do, you might like to really run with this and have fun. If you had zero body hang ups, no doubts about your value as an employee, no worries about your innate lovability and no second guesses as to how good your karaoke really was and whether people have just been lying to you this whole time ...what would things look like?<br /><br />Think of how you’d be at work, at home, with those you love and those you don’t. Think of all the things you’d do differently. Imagine yourself saying and thinking all those things, now, in detail.<br /><br />Now, this is the important thing: you can feel this way right now. <br />Yup. You can feel brave and confident and full of a sense of your own self esteem right now, just as you are.<br /><br />What’s your reaction to that? If you’re like most people, it’s something along the lines of “psssh, yeah right!”<br /><br />While everyone can agree that it’s great to have self-confidence, we generally imagine it’s only reserved for those special people who’ve earned it, and that yeah yeah, we’ll get there someday. But why not right now? <br /><br />Have you noticed that most children seem to bounce into this world with a really hefty amount of self-confidence? But people grow up and get the shine knocked out of them, and most teenagers, especially after a few years in the public education system, not only don’t have confidence in themselves, they actively doubt their own worth. Chat to fully grown adults and many of them have abandoned their dreams long ago, feel average on even their best days and have a steady stream of negative self talk playing on in their heads almost constantly.<br /><br /><br /><hr /><hr /><br /><strong>The 21-Day Self-Confidence Challenge will help you to:</strong> <br /><ul><br /><li>Become the best version of yourself </li><br /><li>Stop being so dependent on what other's might think</li><br /><li>Gently push yourself outside your comfort zone and realize that that's indeed where the magic happens!</li><br /><li>Increase social confidence and approach new people</li><br /><li>Reach your goals and dare to dream big</li><br /><li>Speak and express yourself in public</li><br /><li>Deal with your fear of rejection</li><br /><li>..and much more inside!</li><br /></ul><b>Learn how to overcome self-doubt & low self-esteem and start developing solid self-confidence TODAY!

<p>A generation ago, fewer than 5 percent of girls started puberty before the age of 8; today, that percentage has more than doubled. Early puberty is not just a matter of physical transformation--it's also deeply psychological, with a myriad of effects that can put a girl at higher risk for behavioral problems and long-term health challenges.</p>><p>In this reassuring and empowering guide, Louise Greenspan, MD, and Julianna Deardoff, PhD--two leading experts on the root causes and potential consequences of early puberty in girls--deliver vital advice on how to prevent and manage early puberty. They explain surprising triggers--from excess body fat to hormone-mimicking chemicals to emotional stressors in a girl's home and family life--and offer highly practical strategies, including how to limit exposure to certain ingredients in personal care and household products, which foods to eat and which to avoid, ways to improve a child's sleep routine to promote healthy biology, and more.</p><p><i>The New Puberty</i> is an engaging, urgently needed road map to helping young girls move forward with confidence, ensuring their future well-being.</p>
