Summary

Some families' seating arrangements make Game of Thrones look like Bingo. It's Thanksgiving and Hollin Clocke,  sixteen years old at last, is poised to take her place at the adults' table. Blocked! She's ready but her family isn't. Justis MacNair, a visiting friend of her cousin, might be her knight in shining armor. Or he might just add to Hollin's problems.  
 
Join the Clocke family's holiday celebration of food, grease fire, and heart-ache as they wrestle with the eternal question of who's growing up vs who's just growing older.

    Yoga’s Ancient Wisdom Can Transform Your Work Life 
    Everyone knows that yoga helps reduce stress and increase the body’s flexibility and strength. But the physical aspects barely scratch the surface of yoga’s transformative powers. The poses are only one part of a larger philosophy offering profound insights for confronting the complexities of daily life. Yoga can help you remain centered, compassionate, positive, and sane every hour of the day—especially those between nine and five. 
    This unprecedented guide shows how practicing the full range of yogic concepts—the traditional “Eight Limbs of Yoga”—leads to a productive, creative, and energizing work environment and features examples from professions like law enforcement, teaching, banking, filmmaking, medicine, and many more. But beyond that, this book is an invitation to use all of yoga’s teachings to cultivate the spark of the divine that dwells within each of us. 
    
    “Filled with personal insights and stories that carry yoga into the world of daily decision making.… It is wonderful to see the foundations of practice brought to life in such a confident, sincere, and thoughtful way.”
    —Pandit Rajmani Tuganait, Chairman and spiritual head of the Himalayan Institute
    
    “Maren and Jamie show that yoga is not just about poses—the practice is about creating the stillness of mind that will allow you do the work you were meant to do. Seriously, read this book!”
    —Russell Simmons, cofounder of Def Jam
    
    “The [Showkeirs] bring the deepest teachings of yoga alive by showing exactly how to bring our yoga—and our best selves—into the world.”
    —Judith Lasater, PhD, author of Relax and Renew: Restful Yoga for Stressful Times

    The love of a parent is more important to a young child's development than you think. Discover why a child's earliest exposure to emotions can lead to physical problems, emotional issues, and even criminal tendencies!
     
     
     
    It's a commonly-held belief that a person is born with their personality traits. Tendencies toward anger, calmness, depression or empathy are just natural, unchangeable things-or so we thought. Now new scientific discoveries have revealed that a person's early emotional experiences can affect a child's brain development and therefore who they ultimately become. Sue Gerhardt's Why Love Matters is an engaging, eye-opening collection of research from the fields of psychology and neurobiology that will drastically change the way you look at parenting.
     
     
     
    You will learn:
     
    ·      Why overlooking a child's feelings can lead to psychological problems in adulthood
     
    ·      How a mother's emotions can affect her child before it's even born
     
    ·      What you can do to ensure the healthy development of your child's brain.
