Jadwiga Radon Provides Weapon to Fight Diabetes with New Book

coverRadon

Dog Ear Publishing releases “America Not That Beautiful” by Jadwiga Radon

A diabetic shares tips and tricks for dealing with diabetes in this new self-help book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

Although freedom and resources enhance the U.S.’s image as a land of plenty, that reputation has a dark side: obesity. In her new book, an author and diabetic challenges Americans to change their lifestyle while they still can. As she points out, diabetics struggle with their condition, but hard work and dedication – including eating correctly and exercising – can help them beat the disease.

“America not that Beautiful” describes basic human behavior, noting that sometimes eating – a necessary fact of life – can become an addiction, especially the high-calorie types readily available in the United States at corner stores, gas stations and grocery stores. That addiction, when accompanied by a sedentary lifestyle and other risk factors, can lead to diabetes. Radon writes about her diagnosis with Type II diabetes and how she worked to fight the disease through modifying her diet and increasing her exercising. Her efforts paid off: Today she is 25 pounds lighter, her cholesterol is within normal limits and she is prediabetic rather than a diabetic.

Radon aims to provide inspiration and practical tips to fighting diabetes, sharing suggestions for daily activities and good habits, information on counting carbohydrates and tips for shopping for food. Diabetic-friendly recipes such as lima beans with sausage and deviled eggs made with avocado incorporate easy-to-find ingredients and good nutrition. The book closes with a chapter devoted to inspirational quotes from historic figures and some inspirational thoughts from the author.

Author Jadwiga Radon. who has diagnosed with diabetes in 2009, taught for 32 years before moving to the United States from Poland to be closer to her only child, a daughter. She is a retired teacher interested in psychology, history and politics. Radon, who moved to the United States in 2001 from Poland, enjoys the mountainous area of Idaho, where she lives. She is in her sixties and walks and hikes to stay healthy.

Jennifer Palk Shares Time-Saving Recipes from A to Z in New Cookbook

coverPalk

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Sgt. Potter’s Homecookin’ with Short-Cuts” by Jennifer Palk.

A former Air Force member shares recipes she honed while on the job and as a single mom in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing. The recipes provide short cuts to home-style cooking, something working parents may have to do without because they don’t have enough time.

Imagine eating a home-cooked meal that takes a fraction of the time it normally would take to prepare. That’s the inspiration behind this new cookbook, created by a former Air Force member – known by most as Sgt. Potter – who treated not only her young sons but fellow flyers to homemade baked goods and meals. This single mom put their feedback to good use, learning short-cuts that allowed her to create delicious, nutritious meals and desserts while still having time to spend with her boys.

In “Sgt. Potter’s Homecookin’ with Short Cuts,” Jennifer Palk (formerly Sgt. Potter) shares knowledge she’s gained thanks to her time in the Air Force and years of baking with her family as a young girl. From Andrew’s Chocolate Mint Cookies and Apple Butter to Zack’s Apple Jack Cookies and Zucchini Bread, this family friendly cookbook arranged in alphabetical order offers something for everyone. Entrees include such offerings as Calzones, Dad’s BBQ Ribs, Easy Parmesan Chicken and Roberts Chili. Diabetic-friendly recipes include Apple Pie Cake, Banana Pudding, Carrot Snack Cake and Sherry’s Peach Cobbler. Even pets will find something to like with recipes for homemade dog biscuits and holiday dog treats.

Author Jennifer Palk served in the U.S. Air Force for 17 years, most of it as a single mother with young boys. She and her family live in Baxter, Tenn. She began compiling the material for the book when friends asked for her recipes.

Poems Shares Woman’s Journey in Faith; C. Montgomery Releases New Book

coverMntgmry

Dog Ear Publishing releases “As i Walk: My Spiritual Journey” by C. Montgomery.

Everyone who embarks on a journey of faith takes a different path, and author C. Montgomery is no exception. In this new collection of poems, she gives readers a close-up view of her experiences on her self-titled “road to Damascus.” Each poem portrays a specific event that touched her life, and she says the words were inspired by God who guided her hand. The poems allow Ms. Montgomery to review her life and see the amazing effect God’s unconditional love had on keeping her protected, even when times seemed darkest.

“As i Walk: My Spiritual Journey” features three sections: Acknowledgement and Praises, Tending the Temple and Preparing Our Youth. The poem “A Storm Within” acknowledges the author’s regret for past sins and hope for the future: “I am face with my sins, and the life that I’ve kept. So unsure of my fate, I just shamefully wept. But, praise be to God, for in my darkest hours. He has come to my aid, displaying His holy power.” The selection “The Saints of Tomorrow” calls on parents to lead their children to Christ: “We will grow into saints, from what you have sown. For, the teaching of God where He is unknown. Lend to us now, we are eager to borrow. For, we are Gods’ saints, His light of tomorrow,” The poem “Dwelling in Truth,” in the book’s finale section, asks people to tend their bodies properly and explore the truths in the Bible: “Listen to your body, for Christ is its light. Invest in God’s Word, to prepare it for night.” Whether calling on parents to shepherd their children or sinners to repent of their misdeeds, it’s clear Ms. Montgomery is passionate about sharing her love of the Lord through this debut poetry collection.

This is the first book for author C. Montgomery, a retiree of the U.S. Postal Service who has no formal training in literary, nor poetic writing. The Detroit native, a grandmother, was inspired to write during a period of fasting to God about three years ago and writes that she hopes to serve the Lord through this project.

Couples Provides Honest Account of Recovering from Brain Injuries; Kara Ellsworth and Chris Russo Release New Book

coverEllsworthRusso

Dog Ear Publishing releases “But You Look So Normal…A True Story of Living with Brain Injuries, Beating the Odds, and Finding Love” by Kara and Chris Russo.

Speech therapy class provides an unlikely site for a match made in heaven, but that’s what happened when two people with brain injuries met and fell in love in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

Life has a way of throwing out curveballs, and unexpected brain injuries definitely fall under that category. This new book tells the story of successful 20-somethings who were suddenly struck by different types of brain injuries. Kara had a massive stroke at age 27, and meningitis and encephalitis put Chris in a coma that left him paralyzed. During countless hours of therapy, they not only worked to regain control over their bodies but also developed an instant bond with each other, eventually marrying.

“But You Look So Normal…A True Story of Living with Brain Injuries, Beating the Odds, and Finding Love” relays their struggle to return to productive lives. Although physical signs of damage are obvious – especially when someone walks with a cane or needs a wheelchair – damage to brains can be hidden, with the victim appearing to be normal. On the inside, however, it’s anything but normal. A simple guide to dealing with people with brain injuries offers invaluable insights. The book shines a light through the darkness that can surround difficult recovery, aiming to inspire brain injury survivors and their friends, family members and caretakers.

Author Kara Ellsworth, a registered nurse, continues to help as many people as she can. Fellow author Chris Russo has a cobbler’s shop. They live in Sacramento. In their spare time, the couple watches movies, travels and maintains their small animal sanctuary, which has two rescue dogs, several fish, turtles and eels.
