sunshine

We encourage parents and teachers this Valentine’s Day to consider a book exchange as Valentines, with so many wonderful children’s books entering the publishing marketplace on a daily basis.

One very engaging entry is “Sunshine’s Excellent Adventures’ by Reggie and Anita Hill (www.christianfaithpublishing.com). It tells the sweet story of a kitten named Sunshine who makes the effort to experience a new adventure every day, whether that be making a new friend, practicing a new trick, making a trip to the vet, or simply enjoying the pleasures of hearth and home.  Consider “Sunshine’s Excellent Adventures” as a Valentine gift for your youngster this February 14th!

multiforce

Most people today eat in a rush or consume a diet that is low in nutritional value. As a result, their system continues to be acidic rather than alkaline,  inviting colds, flu and other illnesses.

MultiForce (www.multiforcehealth.com) offers you a convenient way to alkalize your system in order to maintain the proper pH balance for overall well being, its “Alkalizing Multi-Mineral Dietary Supplement Powder”, in unflavored, natural lemon and mango varieties. This formula is easy to blend on a daily basis with water or juice, and features a combination of potassium, phosphorous, calcium and magnesium. After taking it for 2 weeks on a daily basis, we noticed that this MultiForce powder helped to relieve aches and pains and give us a more restful night’s sleep.  It’s not a substitute for eating a balanced diet, but it can certainly combat excess acid in your system that contributes toward low energy and disease!
