"Sandi Kahn Shelton's very funny, very compassionate, very knowledgeable book is like a day at the beach-or more precisely, a day at the beach when you have an au pair. She makes the difficult appear delightful and the challenging seem charming." –Gina Barreca, Ph.D., Professor of English at the University of Connecticut and author of Perfect Husbands Sandi Kahn Shelton takes readers on a wild ride through the journey of parenting -- from the first disillusioning night home from the hospital with a brand-new baby, to the joys of toilet training, and the hair-raising terrible twos. Candid, uplifting, and side-splittingly funny, this book is just what every new mom and dad needs to help them see the lighter side of changing diapers, meddling in-laws, baby's first curse word, and, of course, sleepless nights. “Shelton touches on almost every parenting topic imaginable, with brief essays grouped by subjects such as sleeping, crying, nursing, dressing, feeding, talking, worrying, calming, separating and, of course, potty training. Shelton's book is a welcome addition to the parenting bookshelf.” –Publishers Weekly "The true successor to Erma Bombeck's throne." –WorkingMother magazine "Sandi Kahn Shelton's very funny, very compassionate, very knowledgeable book is like a day at the beach-or more precisely, a day at the beach when you have an au pair. She makes the difficult appear delightful and the challenging seem charming." –Gina Barreca, Ph.D., Professor of English at the University of Connecticut and author of Perfect Husbands "For frazzled working moms, columnist Sandi Kahn Shelton's funny essays on parenting are a fail-safe way to lighten up." –Wall Street Journal "I'm thankful that this very funny and observant lady is not a cartoonist!" –Bil Keane, creator of "The Family Circus"

You’ll Lose the Baby Weight is a humorous look at pregnancy and childbirth. The author shares the parts about pregnancy that your doctor doesn’t tell you--like how many times you are asked to pee whether you want to or not, from figuring out if you're pregnant by peeing on a pee stick to every time you go in for your doctor visit. And then there is the time when you are not allowed to pee but are bursting to when you’re five months pregnant and have to drink thirty-two ounces of water for your ultrasound--and it feels like you've drank fifty-five gallons. As she shares stories from her own six pregnancies and births and those of her friends, Dawn cues readers into the important things they need to know, like how they should order their epidural as soon as they see a pink line on the pregnancy test, the unexpected changes your body goes through, and the fact that they will never again sleep through the night uninterrupted. This book even offers advice for fathers-to-be, including a list of things not to do in the delivery room if they don’t want a bedpan thrown at their heads. With such chapters as "I’m Not a Doctor; I Just Play One on TV" and "Morning Sickness: It Isn’t Just for Breakfast Anymore," each chapter opens with a list of tips--some serious and some not--including things not to be suckered into buying for your baby and the essentials that you really do need. This hilarious book takes readers through nine months of pregnancy and all the accompanying symptoms to labor and delivery and the weeks postpartum. It will have readers doubled over in laughter, as it walks them through pregnancy with sympathetic honesty. While acknowledging that pregnancy is not always easy, the end result of that sweet-smelling, soft baby somehow make it all worth while.

Peter Whittlesey's first inspiration for writing and storytelling arose from reading when he was a boy, particularly Mark Twain and Will James. A few years later, when he was studying history at Westminster College, Whittlesey encountered the literary spirits of Jack Kerouac and J. D. Salinger in the stacks of McGill Library. Since then, he has been hauntingly guided by Kerouac and often wonders what treasures reside in J. D.'s bunker files. Even so, it wasn't until many years later that Whittlesey really found his own way in writing upon his discovery of Dr. Gabriele Rico's Writing the "Natural Way." Her techniques for engaging the whole mind in the creative process proved to be invaluable. With that knowledge, he has created Poems, Prose, and Other Lies. These verses and narratives explore the challenges of letting go, of becoming "Somebody Someday," and other subjects that arise from the ups and downs of everyday life. Whittlesey also spins personal tales in his prose from the story of 'The Little Black Cat" to the tale of "The Wood Boy: The Legend of Mount Misery," that draw us into their worlds. In this debut collection, Whittlesey presents a whole that is as much the journey of a writer learning his craft as it is a refl ection of life in the wilderness that is our world today.

Counter the lies that keep you from abundant living. Satan is the master deceiver and his lies are endless. And the lies Christian women believe are at the root of most of their struggles. "Many women live under a cloud of personal guilt and condemnation," says Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth. "Many are in bondage to their past. Others are gripped by fear of rejection and a longing for approval. Still others are emotional prisoners." In best selling Lies Women Believe, Nancy exposes those areas of deception most commonly believed by Christian women—lies about God, sin, priorities, marriage and family, emotions, and more. She then sheds light on how we can be delivered from bondage and set free to walk in God's grace, forgiveness, and abundant life. Nancy offers the most effective weapon to ounter and overcome Satan's deceptions: God's truth!
