November’s DVD and Book Product Roundup 2017

This post contains affiliate links if clicked on I may receive a small commission to support this blog.

I get products sent to me daily to try out. I unfortunately don’t have time to do a post for each item that I get to review. So I want to make sure these items get seen and learned about. The only other solution I could see to do is to do a November’s DVD and Book Product Roundup 2017 on the products I like and want my readers to know about. I hope you enjoy these as much as I and my other reviewers did.

From Disney-Pixar, creators of FINDING DORY and Academy Award(R) winner INSIDE OUT (Best Animated Feature Film, 2015), comes an epic adventure packed with heart, hilarity and full-throttle FUN! Blindsided by a new generation of blazing-fast racers led by arrogant hotshot Jackson Storm, the legendary Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) is suddenly sidelined and pushed from the sport he loves. To get back on track, he’ll need the help of eager young racing technician Cruz Ramirez, inspiration from the late Fabulous Hudson Hornet and a few unexpected twists and turns of fate. Bring home the high-octane hit that’s fully loaded with unforgettable characters and spectacular animation!

“Snookton was a happy town, full of Snookies, snooking all around.

After convincing another friend to adventure with her through the enchanted woods they soon find out why the teacher had told them “to stay on the right path.” From the dangers of the Snarfling Snarfle to the delights of the Snookberry jelly roll at the Snookie Exchange, they encounter a whole new world out there, but, even after having met a whole new set of friends and learned the value of paying attention, they still had to find their way home.

When Katie Davis Majors moved to Uganda, accidentally founded a booming organization, and later became the mother of thirteen girls through the miracle of adoption, she determined to weave her life together with the people she desired to serve. But joy often gave way to sorrow as she invested her heart fully in walking alongside people in the grip of poverty, addiction, desperation, and disease.

After unexpected tragedy shook her family, for the first time Katie began to wonder, Is God really good? Does He really love us? When she turned to Him with her questions, God spoke truth to her heart and drew her even deeper into relationship with Him.

Daring to Hope is an invitation to cling to the God of the impossible—the God who whispers His love to us in the quiet, in the mundane, when our prayers are not answered the way we want or the miracle doesn’t come. It’s about a mother discovering the extraordinary strength it takes to be ordinary. It’s about choosing faith no matter the circumstance and about encountering God’s goodness in the least expected places.

Though your heartaches and dreams may take a different shape, you will find your own questions echoed in these pages. You’ll be reminded of the gifts of joy in the midst of sorrow. And you’ll hear God’s whisper: Hold on to hope. I will meet you here.

Soon to be Ex: A Guide to the Perfect Divorce and Relaunch launches with an intelligent examination of typical divorce motives to help a would-be divorcée take a step back to first determine if a split up is the right move for her or merely a grass seems greener temporary situation. If the marriage is truly on the rocks Jacqueline guides her soon-to-be ex-wife readers through the divorce process from A to Z with an experienced hand from her 15 years of legal experience as managing partner of a New York first tier matrimonial law firm.

Author Jacqueline’s Soon-to-be Ex topics include:
The Hairdresser’s and Trainer’s Well-Meaning (but flawed) Advice
Escaping Abusive Marriages Financial, Emotional & Physical Abuse
Why a Bitch from Hell Divorce Lawyer is not (usually) the Best Choice
Avoiding the Social Media Pitfall that Derails Well Planned Divorces
Pros and Cons of Mediation, Collaborative Divorce or Litigation
Court Realities Including Why the Bastard’s Cheating is Irrelevant
Advance Emotional, Financial and Legal Preparation
Asset Division from the Family Home to a Family Business
Maximizing Maintenance, Support and Exit Dignity
AND everything else for the elusive Perfect Divorce and Relaunch.

Most important, Ms. Newman (both Manhattan’s leading matrimonial lawyer and a parent herself) focuses on the children of divorce in detail to help women assure their progeny’s financial well-being as well as sound advice on easing the emotional marital turbulence for the marriage’s offspring. While Soon-to-be Ex is solid advice for anyone looking at ending a bad marriage, Jacqueline hits her lawyerly stride with a few chapters of special counsel for the 1% she works with daily (yes the rich ARE different in their divorces too) with a look at:

Celebrity Divorces (managing valuable brands in a breakup)
High Net Worth Split-Ups (for the moneyed and non-moneyed spouses)
Grief Saving Prenups and Postnupts
Special Millennial Divorce Issues (for the startup generation)
Jacqueline says it all when she explains why she located her law firm on New York City’s trendy 5th Avenue, So clients can leave my office and go straight to Saks and Bergdorf’s she says with a wry smile.
