A 40 Day Adventure through Faith to Fitness

40 Days to Fit and Fabulous with Praise Moves includes a Morning and Evening Devotional plan that combines “Praise Moves” created by Christian fitness facilitator Laurette Willis with a devotional guide book. Each day’s devotional includes a theme verse, a daily Bible reading, a brief devotional challenge, and a section for recording personal plans and action steps in response to contemplative insights discovered.

The DVD takes the participant through a series of easy to follow instructions for both Morning and evening workouts incorporating praise moves, stretching postures, and  highly motivating devotional thoughts; resulting in refreshing, emotional peace, spiritual renewal, and physical restoration. Beautiful background scenery adds an additional dimension to the calming effect of the body, soul, and spirit.

Willis has an uncanny giftedness for drawing the reader into taking that first step of “launching out into the deep” in connection with God’s purpose and presence. Her fitness tips offer practical suggestions for saving time, food preparation, healthy exercise, and reducing stress.

40 Days to Fit and Fabulous with Praise Moves combines faith and fitness to “super-charge” your spiritual life and your relationship with the Lord. Laurette Williams provides a blueprint for a new generation of Christians desirous of a focus on balancing physical fitness with spiritual wellbeing.

Illusion, Drama, Magic – Family Entertainment with a Message

Master illusionist Harris the III uses the principles of magic and the art of illusion to demonstrate how easily we are deceived by our perception or the things we think we see.

Harris narrates his story highlighting significant turning points that determined the purpose of his career path and his spiritual journey. Using the dramatic elements of good story telling, actual filmed stage performances, and a powerful stage presence Harris relates how, at the pinnacle of his career, his mentor challenged him to consider whether he himself had been deluded by his own success and was allowing pride to get in the way of accomplished his purpose.

After years of pursing success, working at building a career, gaining recognition, becoming rich, and acquiring an expensive home and luxury cars; Harris tells how he took an audacious step of faith, sold his posh house and expensive cars to answer God’s call to live a simplified life, reach out to the poor, and to fulfill his divine purpose, to deliver the message:  “The chain of deception has many locks – For everything there is a key.

The DVD Entangled – For Everything There is a Key combines illusion, magic and a dramatic story, with a strong evangelical appeal, providing quality family entertainment with a clear message.

Principles for Maintaining Purity

In this DVD presentation of “Raising a Lady in Waiting: Parents Guide to Helping Your Daughter Avoid a Bozo” Jackie Kendall cleverly demonstrates all the skills of a master story teller while she captivates and holds her audience throughout this dramatic presentation. She has an obvious passion for her subject of purity and for her audience of teenage girls and their mothers.

She is emotive, articulate, and savvy. Her warm smile, obvious eye contact, and changing body language result in a persuasive delivery and an immediate connection with the seminar participates. The material is appropriately age-graded for Junior and Senior high girls.

Lessons are drawn from the Old Testaments books of 2 Samuel and Ruth. Illustrations from the story of Ammon (King David’s son) warn of falling into the schemes of a “Bozo.” The story of Ruth and Boaz illustrate the kind of man who is bent on God’s way of protecting a girls honor and respect.

An effective use of acrostics take advantage of a teaching technique aimed at establishing an assimilation of the main thrust of her carefully structured narrative. Kendall introduces life forming principles for making right choices in important decisions that impact the challenges of life long relationships.

Exceptionally well done. Highly recommended.
