Don’t Quit While You’re Ahead
“Success is not an apple pie”
Like Love, success expands creating more. There is room for improvement in the life of even the most successful person.
Do you feel there’s something missing from your life, but feel it’s wrong to want more than you have? Learn how to fill those empty gaps and make your world blossom. This motivational book may give you the boost you need to change your life for the better, even if you are content with where you are. Allow yourself to become inspired to seek new goals and build on your achievements – in fact, Don’t Quit While You’re Ahead.
PREDATOR-PROOF YOUR CHILD
Every parent is concerned to keep their child safe in the modern world, and has worried about abduction or worse by a predatory individual. In this book, presented in reassuring style so that you can rehearse your child in different scenarios without unduly alarming them, you will find sensible advice for safeguarding your child, from toddler to teen, from those who might wish them harm.
You can’t be permanently there at their side to advise, but if you follow the commonsense ideas and self-defence ideas in this book, you will go a long way towards predator-proofing your child and consequent peace of mind.
FACING DOWN EMPTY NEST SYNDROME

You’ve lived and breathed for your children for decades, and suddenly it seems they don’t need you any more. That feeling, coupled with unaccustomed time to yourself, can be overwhelming. Your kids have been your whole life, or a large part of it, but their moving out doesn’t have to depress you. Here is help for building a new phase of life for yourself and, as the title says, facing down that empty nest syndrome.

I’LL SEE YOU AT RAINBOW BRIDGE
Do our beloved pets and other animal companions (such as horses) go to heaven? Can they communicate with the humans they left behind? The answer, as put forth by the experiences of the people whose stories are contained in this book, is a resounding YES!
Author Cynthia MacGregor not only quotes a minister to support that belief but shares here the stories of a multiplicity of pet-owners (and owners of a few animals, such as horses, not often classified as pets) to bolster the affirmed belief that our beloved animals not only do go to the same Great Beyond we are all destined for one day but can come back and send us messages of their love.
Read these heart-warming accounts of animals who crossed back across the divide to tell their owners they still loved them and missed them.
