The Activators are a comedic ensemble of teachers, athletes, singers, and dancers whose primary mission is to combat childhood obesity by making fitness fun and engaging children (ages 2-8) in physical activity.
The Activators differ from other children's entertainment groups by producing content that is truly interactive. Through comedy sketches that feature exercises, games, songs, and dances, every video and performance is designed to inspire children to laugh, move around, and follow along with the cast.
Children enjoy the fun and excitement of The Activators, while parents appreciate the attention focused on imaginative play, balance, agility, coordination, and development of manipulative skills and gross motor proficiency.
With nearly one out of every three children in the U.S. currently considered overweight, The Activators provide a refreshing, timely, and much-needed approach to children's entertainment.

Hayley DiMarco is the best-selling author of more than 30 books, including Dateable and Marriable. She spent the early part of her career working for a little shoe company called Nike in Portland, Oregon. After three years with the "Swoosh," Hayley got fed up with the incessant rain of Portland and began to search for drier ground. Soon she found just the spot—Nashville, Tennessee, where she became the manager of promotions at Thomas Nelson Publishers. While operating as the brand manager of Nelson's new teen line, Hayley authored, edited, or had her hand in more than 36 different titles.
In 2002 Hayley left Nelson and founded Hungry Planet, a company intensely focused on feeding the world's appetite for truth by producing books and new media, taking on issues of faith and life with a distinctly modern voice.
Shortly after founding Hungry Planet, Hayley successfully completed a nationwide executive search for someone to run the company so she could focus on writing. She describes her husband, Michael, as her most successful business acquisition! Hayley and Michael are now the proud parents of Hungry Planet's 30-plus books, including 10 best sellers, three ECPA Christian Book Award finalists, one ECPA winner, and one amazing human, their daughter, Addison.

Tyndale House Publishers has provided me with a complimentary copy of the book to do this review. This review is my honest opinion.

Delivering a big message with strong biblical insights and heartening personal stories, author and Women of Faith speaker Sheila Walsh shows women the life-changing power of trusting in God.
Most Christian women live with a deep sense that they can't seem to get things right, that if only they could be a little better, life would straighten out. Through her own personal hardships, Sheila Walsh has learned that the Christian life is not about getting things right or back to "normal." She writes, "Christ comes not to get us out of our difficulties but to live in us through them." She wants to show women that God has a stunningly beautiful moment of redemption for them that leads to a lifetime of peace and joy.
In this eye-opening message for women, she presents a moving look at her own story as she dives into the lives of Bible characters, drawing out lessons from their trials that women can use immediately to establish a deep, life-altering trust in the Father.

Confronted by this unforgiving disease and heart-broken by her constant battles with the exhausting ups and downs of brittle diabetes, he knew he had to do something.
She had tried every recommended diet and every artificial sweetener on the supermarket shelf without success. Yet he believed there was something that could nutritionally work to her betterment; something to combat the rapid sugar spikes and plunges she endured on a daily basis and give her the wiggle-room in her diet that she craved.
The low-calorie, artificially sweetened products available had never quite tasted right to either of them, worse yet they were contributing to her unpredictable blood sugar swings. He decided he could do better.
He knew that he could not use starch and sugar. Foods with these ingredients always caused his sweetheart to have unpredictable high blood sugars followed by scary low blood sugar crashes. He had never heard of baking without starch but he knew that he had to try, and he had an idea! What if he left out the starch and used fiber instead?
What is special about Yes! To Cookies ?
(Taken from the package)
Mmmmm, Chewy, Crunchy, mouth-watering gluten free cookies. Yes! To Cookies is sweetened with erythiritol and rebaudioside A-Stevia. These sweeteners have no signigicant effect on blood sugar or calories consumed. They also do not cause the gastric problems of many sugar alcohols. Made with fiber instead of starch and flour(wich digests into sugar), Yes! To Cookies are a delicious worry-free way to satisfy snack cravings with fresh baked cookies!
You're on a low-carb diet:
A low carb diet is great for your health and weight but sometimes you still get a craving for a cookie. If you're watching your carbs, you know that cookies aren't on the menu...until now!
All-natural and delicious Yes! To Cookies will satisfy your hunger without short-circuiting your nutrition. We replaced starch and sugar with 100% natural cholesterol-lowering fiber that's calorie free and zero calorie sweeteners.
Each cookie has so little digestible carbohydrates that we can actually say it has zero starch and zero sugar! The 22 carbohydrates in a serving of Yes! To Cookies mix is not digested since these carbs come from fiber and no calorie sweeteners instead of starch and sugar.
You have a Child(ren) with Autism or ADHD:
Studies show that autistic children, who are unable to properly break down certain proteins, could benefit from a gluten- and casein-free diet. Yes! To Cookies is a delicious way of allowing your child to enjoy the wonder of cookies, without the ingredients that are potentially harmful to them. Yes! To Cookies products are gluten-free (because they are made with fiber and not wheat or grains) and casein-free (because these proteins are removed during the whey-separation process). Children with other developmental disorders (such as ADHD) can also reap the benefits of Yes! To Cookies wholesome, all-natural goodness.
You are a Diabetes Sufferer:
Many people diagnosed with diabetes or pre-diabetes feel like they will never again enjoy fun foods like cookies. That is simply not true!
Choosing to eat healthy foods is important to maintaining well-managed blood glucose levels. Now cookies can be a yummy and satisfying part of your meal plan.
Those who suffer from gluten-intolerance (or have conditions that require them to eliminate starch and gluten from their diets) may find it difficult to find healthy treats that are still delicious. Yes! To Cookies products are made with ingredients that safely replace gluten, without sacrificing taste.

However, Dr. Earl Henslin in my opinion, did a wonderful job at putting this book together. It was the kind of book that you really want to finish reading. I literally grabbed a cup of coffe and stayed up to the wee hours of the night reading it. I liked how he incorporated the Christian faith into it as well. I would rate this book an A++++ and I highly recommend that you read it!

New Study a Breakthrough in Preventing Sudden Infant Death
Today's release of a major study linking sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) with low production of serotonin in the brainstem is a major breakthrough for families and physicians attempting to better understand the dangers of SIDS. Moreover, that Dr. Kinney, et al's work may lead to a concrete approach to identifying babies at risk for SIDS, the leading cause of death for infants between 1 and 12 months old in the United States is of profound importance. In addition, by showing a presence of a SIDS risk factor in 95% of all cases in this study, this research underscores the need for parents and caregivers to be ever vigilant in implementing all safe sleep/SIDS risk‐reduction practices.
The study will be published in the February 3rd issue of The Journal of the American Medical Association and was funded in part by a grant from the New Jersey‐based CJ Foundation for SIDS. Since 1994, the CJ Foundation has provided millions of dollars towards SIDS research projects, organizations, support programs and public education and awareness campaigns throughout the nation, making tremendous strides in its fight to eliminate SIDS.
Parents and caretakers of newborn infants can take simple steps that reduce the danger of SIDS
•Always laying your baby to sleep face up. Side and tummy positions are not safe; check with your doctor if your baby has breathing problems.
•Don’t smoke while pregnant and never smoke near your infant. While pregnant or considering pregnancy do not smoke. Never let others smoke near your baby. Smoking is a major risk factor for SIDS.
•Don’t let your baby get too hot. Overheating is a leading risk factor for SIDS. Dress your baby in as much or as little as you would wear. If your baby is sweating, has damp hair, or a heat rash, he or she may be too hot. Room fans have been shown to reduce the risk of SIDS. Consider using a wearable blanket or other type of sleeper instead of a blanket.
•Lay your baby to sleep in an approved crib, on a firm mattress. Do not let the baby sleep on soft things, like a couch, pillow, sheepskin, foam pad, or waterbed. Remove all loose bedding, stuffed animals, and pillows from crib. Crib bumpers are not recommended and can be hazardous.
•Create a healthy lifestyle for you and your baby. When pregnant, see your doctor often and do not use drugs or alcohol. Talk with your doctor about changes in your baby and how your baby acts.
•If possible, breast feed your baby. Breast feeding has been shown to reduce the risk of SIDS.
•Offer your baby a pacifier at all sleep times. Pacifiers have been shown to reduce the risk of SIDS
•Put your baby on his or her tummy to play when your baby is awake and supervised. Make sure someone is always watching. “Tummy Time” is good for your baby because it makes neck and shoulder muscles stronger.
•Don’t share sleep surfaces. Adult beds, couches, and chairs are not safe for infant sleep and increase the risk of SIDS, suffocation and accidental infant death. After breast feeding put your baby back in his or her crib.
•Share these tips with everyone who cares for your baby.
For parents who suffered the loss of a baby, perhaps this study, by finding strong evidence of an underlying biological cause for SIDS, will give them peace of mind as well as hope that one day we will truly eliminate SIDS. Education is the key to keeping your baby safe. For more information on SIDS and ways in which you can support our mission, please visit us online at www.cjsids.org
