Thank you for your interest in A Good Man is Hard to Find, Even in the Church. I believe this book will help you with the task of finding a suitable mate and the wait that comes along with it. This book takes a few-holds-barred approach in sharing the perks and quirks of dating and will help people avoid unnecessary drama in their spouse-finding/keeping efforts. What makes this book unique is its approach - pure honesty! Things I did not want to include, I included just to make my point clear through example. Experience is a good teacher, but I don't believe we have to learn from our own experiences. We can also learn from the experiences of others. Why burn yourself on the stove when Momma can already tell you that the stove is hot? I dare to expose the truth since it's the truth that sets us free! Arne Powers is a church leader who serves in many capacities. One of her key roles is heading the singles ministry of her church. Her primary gift is her ability to teach. Arne believes in simplicity. If you can grasp it, you can apply it. She has found that the best way to teach others is by sharing personal experiences where applicable. This technique always seems to bring clarity to her lessons.

How to Make the Best Ice Creams and Amazing Frozen Desserts

Have you ever wanted to make rich, creamy ice cream right from your own home? Well now you can with these amazing ice cream recipes! Making ice cream at home is so much more satisfying than buying the boring stuff at the store and the results are far tastier. This book will outline the basic methods of making ice creams and show you how to make some cool new flavors that you would never find on a grocery shelf (Chai tea? Real Mint? Blood Orange Pops? These would never be in a store!). After using these recipes a few times, you will be an ice cream and frozen dessert pro! After reading some of the labels on prepackaged ice cream, I realized, (not surprisingly), that store bought ice creams can be full of preservatives and artificial flavors. Why does a frozen dessert need preservatives?! There has to be a better way! I decided to write this book to share great ice cream recipes that everyone can make at home without any unnecessary additives. Making your own ice cream at home will also shock your taste buds- ice cream made with real mint leaves is SO much more delicious and refreshing. All of the recipes in this book are made without artificial flavors and you and your guests will be able to taste the difference- get ready for people to ask for seconds and even thirds! Many of the recipes in this book will require an ice cream maker which can easily be found and purchased online or in any cooking store. They range from inexpensive to very pricey so pick the one that is best for you. I personally use one with a bowl which gets frozen ahead of time in the freezer and is then taken out right when I am ready to churn my ice cream. Look over the directions about how to use your machine before starting your ice cream. If you don't have an ice cream machine, don't worry. This book still has many great frozen desserts for you- try the Frozen Yogurt Berry Pops, a healthy frozen snack that is sure to please! Because all of the recipes in this book need to be frozen, the 'Active Time', or time it will take you to actively be working on these recipes, is what is included at the top of each page. Each dessert will need time to freeze so keep that in mind. But that's enough about the minute detail. Get your heavy cream and sugar out and let's make some ice cream!

12 Essential Minerals

A short, simple and readily-accessible summary of the internal and external therapeutic uses of the 12 essential tissue salts, commonly called “cell salts.” The use of cell salts to treat a wide variety of health-related conditions has been extremely popular in Europe (especially in Germany) for many years. Today, there is widespread and growing interest in this branch of homeopathic treatment in the U.S., as evidenced by the inclusion of these twelve cell salts in special displays in health food stores across the country. Much of what has been previously written on cell salts is in archaic medical language. Dave Card’s new book is different. He explains cell salts in a comprehensive fashion, yet simply, and in modern language; gives clear instruction in how to use cell salts, and supplies extensive lists of various disease- or imbalance-conditions that can be helped by cell salt supplementation. A section on the external uses of cell salts, something rarely presented in the English language, is also included. Contains a correspondence between the twelve signs of the zodiac and the use of each of the twelve different cell salts. The book is clearly indexed. “Dave Card’s books have been a great tool in my own practice.”-Cesar Diaz, M.D., Family Practice/ Natural Medicine “Cell salt supplementation has dramatically increased the general overall health and vitality of my clients.”-Christopher Noel, Licensed Massage Therapist
