Have you ever wondered, What is happiness? And why some people are happy and some not?  Well, my husband and I recently went to a workshop on “The Habits of Happy People” presented by Brian E. King, PhD, sponsored by the Institute for Brain Potential.1 Continue reading >

Why Don’t We Give the Answers Up-Front?

A week ago, a dietitian called and asked, “Do you send me the answers when you send the course?” She was just curious and others have asked as well. Over the past years, we have evolved on how we do our exams, but we still don’t give out answers or certificates before the course has been completed. These are open-book exams worth considerable CE hours based upon what the reviewers believe it will take the average reader to read the book and answer the questions. I believe that our customers and credentialing organizations (CDR, NCBDE, and the California Board of Registered Nursing) expect us to maintain high standards and not shortcut the process.

With Spring, Our Thoughts Turn to Disappearing Bees

We know how important bees are to our flowers and food crops, impacting one-third or more of our world food supply.

They Treat Me Like a Rock Star

The other day when kids were coming around for Halloween in our little town of Lake Dallas, Texas, I saw our former assistant preacher. It was so good to see her—it had been almost a year. She had received a new assignment last June and now preached about 50 miles away. After our hug, I asked, “How are you doing? How’s your new church?” Continue reading >

Seven Keys to Writing a Nutrition Book

What makes a book interesting to buyers intrigues me. Last week I went to two book-signings for new authors—one was Nadia Bolz-Weber, my daughter’s 6’1”, tattooed, delightful preacher from Denver on a national book tour, and the other was my sister, Coleen Buckmaster, with “virgin arms” as Nadia would say, on an Oklahoma book tour.
