Create the Christmas Romance of Your Dreams Scene by Scene, Twist by Charmingly Predictable Twist Slip on your favorite Christmas sweater, cozy up to a crackling fire, sip some spiced eggnog, and prepare to experience the ultimate holiday love story. But instead of watching it on some cheesy cable channel, open this book and put yourself in the director’s chair. First, decide your heroine's problem. Was she just fired from her big city business job? Avoiding going home for Christmas? Or did she just realize the man who proposed to her maybe isn't Mr. Right? Then it's time to meet the man--should your heroine end up with the big city business exec, the small town hunk or someone totally unexpected (but still hunky)? Each choice will take you down a totally different path that all somehow end up making for a perfect made-for-TV romance. Will your Christmas activity montage include baking cookies, walking through a holiday festival, or skating on a picturesque frozen lake? Will you choose to include a generically bearded old man who perhaps could maybe be Santa Claus? Choice by hilarious choice, you’ll make your way closer and closer to the big payoff--the picture perfect, most romantic final kiss ever. And when you’ve savored that last bit of snowy, romantic goodness, don’t be glum. Turn back to page one and start a new love story. With hundreds of possible stories the happily-ever-afters never stop happening.

As an architect, she designs beautiful buildings…But will her heart ever find a place to call home? Taylor’s architectural firm enters her in a contest to build life-sized gingerbread houses. After the contest, she’s likely to get a promotion to a position in another city. But it’s a team competition, and Taylor’s temperamental partner soon backs out. Taylor needs a replacement—fast. When she meets Adam, a baker and single dad, she convinces him to be her partner in the contest. After all, winning would give his bakery much-needed exposure. For years, Taylor has avoided thinking of anywhere as “home.” When she was a kid, her family was always on the move. But the time she spends with Adam and his daughter Brooke, decorating for Christmas and enjoying Philadelphia’s holiday traditions, has her questioning everything. Could she have found a place to call her own? This book includes an original recipe for Best-Ever Gingerbread.

Restoring Your Soul Through Christmas Movies

One of the reasons why this film has really grown on me in recent years is the fact that Elf is less about Santa Claus and more about choosing to walk confidently in our own identity and building up others through relationship.

“Christmas movies are revealing windows into religion, consumerism, family, and American pop culture, and Zukowski offers a compelling, highly readable guide to this long-flourishing genre. Exploring classics as well as flops, he illuminates both the resilience and the limitations of the holiday’s celebration on screen.” —Leigh E. Schmidt, Washington University in St. Louis, author of Consumer Rites: The Buying and Selling of American Holidays How the Grinch Stole Christmas weighs materialism against community. The Polar Express tests the wonder of miracles in an age of cynicism. And Die Hard (yes, Die Hard) wrestles with the impact of broken relationships on holiday joy. With Christmas on the Screen, journalist John A. Zukowski takes readers on an historic tour of Christmas films and changing American values to ask the question, “What does Christmas mean to us?”

I wrote UNCOMMON DESTINY UNCOMMON PARTNER out of a passion to see young people and people at large maximise their potential through authentic relationships that empower and enable their destinies to be fully manifested. With over 10 years of research I share powerful and revelatory insights on relationships. In the book I cover relationships on two fronts, the Spiritual Dimension and Natural Dimension. It’s imperative for people to understand how these 2 dimensions relate. One thing that is made clear in the book is that the Spiritual Dimension is the causal realm. Discover how to break cycles of abuse, generational curses, spoken curses and many other less talked about issues affecting people in relationships. Also discover some of the things barring many people from getting into relationships and also under mining relationships. If you are preparing to get married this book will unleash some things that you need to be aware of before the ‘Big day’. The book also covers things like romance versus finance, Is there really a such thing as the one? Etc. Also be the first to learn about the Wise House Model, a model that will enable you to master and fully embrace how each aspect of your life come together. If you are single this book will empower you not to treat your single year s with contempt but seize that window as an opportunity to fully get into your purpose and also do your ‘homework’. If you are married this book will zero in on some of the spiritual matters that could be affecting your marriage that you need to be aware of and it will empower you to cherish your partner like never before. You have an UNCOMMON DESTINY!!
