WOI: Celebrate Early Childhood Tooth Loss on The Families Matter Show

Welcome to BTR's featured World of Ink Network. Today, Wed. March 25th (6pm Eastern - 5pm Central - 4pm Mountain - 3pm Pacific) on The Families Matter show, the hosts will be chatting with author Ingrid Bencosme, a former schoolteacher, about her interactive book for children, TEETH FAIRIES.

TEETH FAIRIES is a new, interactive book and doll set celebrating a child’s tooth loss process. From the age of about 5 to 12, the average child loses twenty baby teeth. That’s a lot of visits from the Tooth Fairy! This process is an exciting and sometimes stressful time for both children and parents.

This is a fantastic tool for moms and dads to help their kids get excited about losing their teeth and wanting to take care of their dental health!

WOI Special with Acclaimed Director, Alejandro Monteverde

Welcome to BTR's featured World of Ink Network. Today, Monday March 23rd (4pm Eastern - 3pm Central - 2pm Mountain - 1pm Pacific) we have Acclaimed Director Alejandro Monteverde as our guest. He will be chatting about his newest movie LITTLE BOY (starring Kevin James, Michael Rapaport, Jakob Salvati, Emily Watson, and Ali Landry, and is produced by heavyweight TV and movie producer, Mark Burnett).

Set during the height of World War II, the film centers on a little boy, Pepper Flynt Busbee (Jakob Salvati), who is willing to do whatever it takes to end World War II so that he can bring his father home. Through his struggle, Pepper learns lessons of morality, such as the value of self sacrifice, how to face the town's bullies (at times hilariously depicted), the importance of racial equality, and many lessons in between.

This heartwarming family film expertly captures feelings similar to those recognizable in so many great American movies.

Book Review: Practical Proverbs for Everyday Living by Lawrence Elliott




About the book:
This book gives the reader keys to unlock the mysteries of life in a simple, but yet profound way. The proverbs will assist you with avoiding unnecessary problems. The principles in this book will teach you how to go through your preordained trials with patience, joy and peace in order for you to come out victorious. These teachings of wisdom will provide insight and inspiration to safely guide you through the uncharted waters of your life. Be blessed.

ISBN:  978-1-61244-286-0

My Thoughts:
I really enjoyed this book as it isn't a typical self-help book. There are 9 chapters total and each one touches on a different theme: God & Spirituality, Home & Family, Love & Relationship, Wisdom & Knowledge, Leadership & Politics, Habits & Virtues, Kindness & Gratitude, Business & Finance, and Strength & Endurance. 

The author shares at the beginning of each chapter his personal thoughts on the subject. Nothing the author says is judgemental. Everything shared is common knowledge, but stuff we tend to forget in our busy daily lives. The proverbs are just as simple as the opening remarks by the author. They are broken down into either a simple phrase such as: "The blind need a guide, the cripple needs a crutch, the visionless needs a visionary, and the sinner needs a savior." (God & Spirituality, proverb 10.) Or they can be short paragraphs filled with insight such as: "Whenever you catch your children stealing, don’t pet them. Punish them. If you don’t punish them now, society will punish them later. When society does it, your family’s embarrassments
will be greater." (Home & Family, proverb 14.)

Yes, these are simple statements of fact, but how often do we really sit down and ponder the things we know to be true? Rarely I'm afraid. However, with Practical Proverbs for Everyday Living, you can take these simple words with you or share them with those you love. I've even taken it a bit further and write one on my kid's and my own bathroom mirror for the week. It's just a simple reminder of the kind of person we want to be in our home.

In the words of the author Lawrence Elliott at the beginning of the book, "Life is a mixture of good times and rough times. You cannot avoid all of the negative situations that come into your life. They are there for a purpose, to help you grow. But you can avoid the unnecessary situations that bring pain, regret and despair. Practicing these proverbs will greatly enhance your life."


About the author:
Lawrence Elliott was born in one of the beautiful islands of the Bahamas called New Providence. He is married to a lovely lady named Deborah. His passion is to teach the laws of life in a practical way. Presently, he volunteers teaching junior high school boys the word of God, in a group called the Christian Boys Movement. Additionally, Mr. Elliott volunteered teaching ‘at risk’ high school boys, the principles of life at a special institute designed for them.

WOI: Author J.E. Thompson on the Stories for Children show

Welcome to BlogTalkRadio's featured World of Ink Network. Today on the Stories for Children show, host Virginia S Grenier will be chatting with Author J.E. Thompson about his books, Revelation and Deliciously Dark Tales.

J. E. Thompson began his stormy relationship with writing at age fourteen when his English teacher nominated his short story for inclusion his school district’s writing competition. With the joy of success, and the sourness of that first submitted story’s subsequent failure behind him, he puttered on and off, writing fiction stories, non-fiction articles, and commercial copy for years. In November 2003, he accepted the NANOWRIMO (National Novel Writing Month) challenge to complete a fifty-thousand word book in one month. That rough draft, after myriad revisions, edits, rewrites, edits, revisions, professional editing, rewriting, eventually emerged as his first book, Revelation.

Revelation is the first book in a trilogy that chronicles fifteen year old Michelle Thorn’s life as it grows continually more confusing after she sees a Bigfoot in the Oregon forest near her home. Retaliation, the second book in the series continues to tell Michelle’s ongoing story, and is due out in August 2015.
Deliciously Dark Tales is a collection of sixteen short stories for those who like it dark.
