It's Here!

I'm Hungry! provides the what, why, and how-to of nutrition and weight loss by defining the problems, offering solutions, and then presenting guidelines to carry them through. 

I'm Bored! offers hundreds of  suggestions and links to fun and educational activities, questions to ask, jobs to perform, and services to volunteer, all-of-which develop the intellect, confidence, and feelings of fulfillment. These ideas may also deter the hand-to-mouth eating habit that often accompanies boredom.


WARNING! Reading this book and following these instructions may cause significant changes to your health and life. Adhering to the nutritional guidelines and participating in the suggested activities on a regular basis may cause long-term weight loss and feelings of well-being. Common side-effects may include, but are not limited to, increased amounts of energy, confidence, and clarity of mind; frequent feelings of joy, happiness, and fulfillment; frequent feelings of purpose, meaning, and significance; increased episodes of love, laughter and inspiration, followed by a sudden awareness that people want to be near you. Additional effects may also include loss of desire for inferior food and fewer bouts of depression, anxiety, and illness. If at any time these effects wane or do not fully occur, repeat the behaviors until the desired results become evident.

Carol McCormick is a certified personal trainer and a certified health coach through the American Council on Exercise, one of the top fitness organizations in the world. I'M HUNGRY! I'M BORED! was born out of her great concern for children and adults who struggle with weight-related personal and social issues. Overweight children are falling prey to a host of “adult” diseases, and many are taunted, teased, and bullied because of their appearance. Adults are not immune to this discrimination, as they are also “sized-up” when searching for a date or seeking a career. These painful emotions often cause both children and adults, not only to feel sad or upset, but also inferior and insecure. As these physical, emotional, and social problems intensify, feelings of unhappiness may also increase.

Habits instilled in your children now often follow them into their future. In helping them, you will be helping yourself, because what works for them will work for you too, if you need a nudge in this direction. I’M HUNGRY! I’M BORED! provides the blueprints needed to lay a strong foundation and create new behaviors that lead to better health, a leaner physique, and a happier life!

Your Special Gift, A Preteen Primer to the Facts of Life

Featured on eReader News Today for $0.99. 
Sale price is for two days only. 

Having “the talk” can sometimes be an awkward experience for both parent and child. Even so, I didn’t want to wait until my children’s hormones kicked in, and I didn’t want to be caught off guard when they had questions, but most of all, I didn’t want them growing up with misconceptions concerning sex. I wanted my children to be informed about the facts of life, yet without being too sexually explicit in the process, because some of the facts weren’t good such as pornography, diseases, and predators, but these subjects needed to be addressed as well.

 As a result, I told them what I have written in Your Special Gift, by using the analogy of a gift, a lock, and a key to define commonly used sexual terms, and to caution them about possible consequences, and to warn them of potential predators. I also used Scripture as the basis of defining true love. The simplicity of the gift analogy opens the door of communication between parent and child in an effective straightforward, and yet sensitive way, so that any question concerning sex can be answered by using this method.

 Your Special Gift is well-suited for children in the 6-to-12 year-old range.

If you've ever seen The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe movie, this reminds me of the portrayal of God as the Lion (of Judah). Unflinching courage and strength that doesn't back down, but goes forward instead.

YOU Are The Light of the World!

This article is from the president and CEO of Stonecroft Ministries International, an organization where I am also a speaker.  When I read the topic, it was as though I saw the meaning with new eyes. I have read this verse dozens of times before, but it suddenly hit me when I read it tonight. I, YOU, WE are the lights of the world! And we are to shine  for others to see Christ living inside of us. What an amazing revelation, privilege, and responsibility.
