My thoughts:
 The title here says it all, with a few twists.  I remember growing up and hearing when I was growing up how they wished they knew then what they know now!  Well, I know exactly what they meant by that.  My Mother tried to  talk me out of my first marriage, but NO I knew more than she did, and it did not work out. In fact it was a very violent marriage that by the grace of God I made it out alive.
In this book it not only teaches the day to day learning skills that we need to know but it also teaches us about the necessity's for Marriage, and finances.  Even at 36 I sit back and say if I only knew then what I know now, and in reading this book, I found myself still taking mental notes of what he is saying,  Even though I am 36 and not 18,  I am using the book as a start over guide.  I am sure every marriage could use a little help in some form and if not a marriage maybe it is finances or just how to deal with the things the world throws at us!
If you are looking for a great book to read and to learn even a small life lesson, then this is the book for you and your Family.  I have a son that is 14, he will be 15 in July and my plans are to share this book with him.  In hopes that he can and will take the positives out of it.

For one lucky Ia copy of this to book to giveaway.  This will be a Rafflecopter giveaway so it is so easy to enter!  Good Luck

Live Q And A: Find Out If Your Student Athlete Is At Risk for Sudden Heart Failure

If defi
rillation is administered within one minute of collapse, the survival rate for sudden heart failure goes up 90 percent. “Timing is key to survival. Waiting even 10 minutes to defibrillate drops the chances of survival to 10 percent,” says John Lynn Jefferies, MD.

This issue has really hit home for all of us here recently and we want to do what we can to help shed light on this issue.

This is a free, live, on-line Q and A where you and your readers can ask questions in real time.  It’s a chance to talk to knowledgeable and experienced doctors and get answers right on the spot.

 Additional Facts:
Top 5 risk factors for sudden heart failure in student athletes:
1. Family history of sudden death.
2. Fainting or family history of fainting.
3. Family history of arrhythmias or heart muscle disease.
4. Participation in sports (particularly sports that require a burst of activity like basketball, hockey and football).
5. Athlete has gone through puberty (an athlete’s body is stronger at this point and has power during the burst of activity).

This is a great Live chat rather you have a student that plays a sport, or you have a family member of age.  I think this will be a great chat to learn what the signs of #HeartDisease.  

I have read many times that women are more likely to suffer a heart attack and not even know that they are suffering.  I hope to see each and everyone of my readers at the chat, I also hope we can all learn something new.
