Rosia Lee Ivey's Recipes for Life
($9.95) ISBN: 978-1-4349-0140-8, paperback
Rosia Lee Ivey is now ninety-six years old. She started cooking at the young age of thirteen. When Rosia's father died, all the household duties and cooking responsibilities fell on her shoulders. Her mother knew she could count on Rosia Lee to help take care of the family.
John Arthur Ivey, Rosia's youngest son, wanted to write her legacy. The best way to represent his mother is to share the love of her cooking, which he put in the form of a cookbook. There are all of Rosia's southern-inspired recipes, which include "Rosia Lee's Real Apple Pie," "Ox Tail Stew," and "Cherie's Jazzy Gumbo."
John hopes everyone will enjoy the food that has inspired his mother and sustained her family for over eighty years. Rosia Lee Ivey's Recipes for Life is a taste of life provided by Rosia and her family.

You Are The Problem, You Are The Solution
($19.00) ISBN: 978-0-8059-7776-9, paperback
"You are where you are right now in life because of what has gone into your mind." From this first sentence of Andy Holligan's You Are The Problem, You Are The Solution, the author encourages each of us to take responsibility for what we allow to influence us and offers hope to those interested and willing to change their lives for the better.
Holligan explores the connection between the subconscious mind and self-esteem before expanding his focus to consider the effects of both positive and negative emotions. Outside influences, including media, are also examined, and the reader finds practical, results-oriented advice on controlling what we allow to shape our lives. Emphasizing the importance of visualization and a positive mental attitude, Holligan reminds us that God created each individual without setting limits on what we can achieve. Our limitations are self-imposed--and we can also remove these barriers and free ourselves to achieve the success to which God calls each of us.
