    "Love More, Feed Less" is a supportive guide to raising healthier kids. Beyond being just a cookbook or diet book, Randi Levin provides various tips to inspire kids to be more physically active and aware of what foods they put into their bodies. Experienced as a teacher and children’s counselor, Levin teaches parents how to motivate their children, how to overcome whining when children claim they are starving because they aren’t being fed junk food, and how to provide healthy recipes and appropriate serving sizes for the family. Parents will learn how to help their children avoid the stigma of obesity and the risk of developing diseases from being overweight. Alternative solutions are offered for children who cope emotionally by eating junk food, and guidelines are given to establish healthy eating habits.

    Life was great for Juli and Christi. Each sister was living their lives to the fullest; however, all that changed the split second their father collapsed, and died in Christi's arms. Both girls lives spiraled into darkness trying to cope with the loss of their father, yet, each sister managed to pull her life back together with the help of God and family. Juli and Christi tell their own story of dealing with their father's death from turning to medication to cope with the pain to immersing their lives in helping others cope. "Two Sisters' Journey," by authors Christi and Juli Rohan, is a unique look into the different stages of grief through acceptance.

Well, for those that have children, or an educator wanting to come up with new activities, Dr. Maria Chesley Fisk has made it easy.
