Life Changing TOXIC MOLD: Is Your Home Hiding A Silent Killer?

by Vici Francoies

INTRODUCTION
This book is an extension of the Francoies first book “Finding God’ ..Just in Time. through Toxic Mold.” #1 in Counseling and Recovery and #1 in Religion and Spiritually.
After listening to the feed back from their first book, the Francoies have added the answers to the questions you didn’t know you had about Toxic Mold;
HOW TO KNOW IF YOUR HOME HAS A SILENT KILLER IN IT!
GET THE FACTS!!
Toxic Mold is often caused by water damaged buildings, and often unseen and undetected. After water damage of any type you will have question like:
*How do I know if Toxic Mold is in my home?
*Is my home safe?
*What symptoms do I watch for?
and more.
All of these could be symptoms of ‘Bio-Toxins’ building up in your body from the silent killer-Toxic Mold. The sad thing is, unless your doctor is specifically trained in Bio-Toxins like Lime Disease or Toxic Mold, they won’t know IF your toxic or how to treat it, let alone how to help you.
If you’re chronically sick and have been told you have allergies, you may want to know what the symptoms of bio-toxins are.
Clark and Vici Francoies talk about how God brought the two of them together later in life and how they ended up in the fight for their lives after exposure to toxic mold. 
They had an ongoing toxic-mold problem in their apartment for about 2-1/2 years. Not understanding the health risks, they didn’t leave. Not until Vici became too ill to work and ultimately, almost lost her life.
They share their testimony in hopes that it will help others going through similar circumstances. This story is how they not only survived and learned to thrive again, but where they found life saving help. Now they are sharing what they have learned to teach others how you can thrive too!
THE SIX MONTH DIFFERENCE
I found this amazing detox diet that I am sharing in the book.
We share the Mold and Mycotoxins in your food supply.
We will also tell you ways to starve out the Mold.
You will also receive a maintenance plan
*WOW! WAIT! WHY??
Unfortunately after being exposed to toxic molds your body will be susceptible for life to the aflatoxins and other offenders found in the food. Your body will have “heavy antibodies” against these molds in the future and a lot of our food supply has small traces of toxic molds in them.
Once you have been exposed to Toxic Molds, Candida will become out of control very quickly . Sometimes in as little as only 3-4 weeks of eating foods with carbs AGAIN a person previously exposed to toxic molds can get a “MASSIVE” yeast, candida or new fungal infection. This is the reason the diets in the book are highly recommend for a lifetime maintenance after Toxic Mold.
Get your copy today to be better prepared for your family and friends when disaster strikes! Please give us a review and let us know this book has helped you.
God Bless

An ardent relationship between a devotee and God, reading this enchanting love story, the narrator takes you to her dream of a world. God & devotee are not separate from each other.

So after going through the author’s memory lane, smiling with pleasure, not the sad memories of old time, but poetic, youthful ones, those impressions of author’s distant past in which dreams and realities blend and laughed with quiet enjoyment; every step she took brought more fond memories of people and places she felt to her core she knew.

Most importantly she talked with many likeminded people about Meher Baba, spirituality and all that. While everybody else seemed busy enjoying outer material things, she was too busy enjoying inner material things by meditating different ways & working on herself to become a better person tomorrowâ?¦

Chasing Love

by Sarah Borza

“Take a seat.” He had a melodious and firm voice.
Rubbing my sweaty and trembling hands together, I walked to the chair, and I felt my knees wobble as I sat.
“Your name?”
“Sarah!”
“Do you think you need this treatment?”
“in your eyes, yes, but I don’t think anything is wrong with my actions if nature raised me.”
“What do you mean nature raised you?”
“My dad died, and without a dad, it’s hard for a girl to know what is what. Nature couldn’t teach me, so I had to explore for myself. Once I was ready, she asked me to spread the word.”
“Was this when people began to think you were crazy?”

by Gary Troia

For the first time ever, this collection of short stories by Gary Troia brings together, in chronological order stories and memoirs from Spanish Yarns and Beyond, English Yarns and Beyond and A Bricklayer’s Tales into one complete volume.

“Excellent! A collection of short stories about depression, alcoholism and drug use. Very compelling reading. I read this short story collection all in one go.” (Maria, Goodreads.)

A Bricklayer’s Tales is the ultimate “I hate this job” story, written as a collection of short stories and memoirs, each one revealing a snapshot in the life of Ray.

This book achieves clarity without trying.

Rest Stop Killer: A Collection of True Crime

by Natalie Marshall

A true crime anthology headlined by the gruesome crimes committed by Donald Leroy Evans.
Donald Leroy Evans was an American serial killer who allegedly killed over 15 people between 1970 and 1991 but confessed to over 60 murderersâ??mostly womenâ??at rest stops and parks throughout 20 U.S. states. He was arrested after leading police to the body of a homeless ten-year-old girl, Beatrice Routh, who he had kidnapped in Mississippi, taken to Louisiana where he raped and strangled her to death, and then dumped her body in a shallow grave back in Mississippi. Evans pled guilty to the offense and then to an additional 60 murders (some reports state that the number was 72); however, authorities could not find any evidence corroborating his claims and, later, Evans admitted it was a hoax.



Five Days a Millionaire

by Ruth Broucq

A self-reliant single mom in Germany finds herself in a tricky situation. Her ambivalent lover appears to have called it quits for good, and finances are running thin. Suddenly a chance to make her – and her daughter’s – life more secure appears in the form of a repugnant yet mystifying man who promises them the world.
An autobiographic erotic tale of passion, lust, greed, and kinship that questions our priorities in life and love. Can the mystery man keep to his promises? How far would you go to secure a fortune? And is what you get really worth waiting for?



MECHANIC LEIGH: Growing Up in the 1960s

by Eric Alagan

What if grandpa could tell you what it was like to grow up in the 1960s? Not as a middle-aged manâ??but as a boy of 14, 10 or even 6 years old. What will he say? How will he speak? What will be his reference points when devoid of all the worldly wise life experiences he had since uncovered? What if you could talk to him in the present day but with him having a foot back in timeâ??to his sepia days?

Memoirs are notorious for whitewashing and selective amnesia. What if you could hear grandpa’s stories as he was living life in the raw?

What challenges and inconveniences would he have faced in daily life? What hobbies would he have indulged in? What daily routines and chores he had to do – expected to do? What was school like? How did he handle his first crush with that girl in school?

What sort of person do you think he was, or would have been, in the raw unvarnished self? If you met him as a kid, would you want to be his friend?

Was he quiet and withdrawn? Precocious? Or a motor-mouth smart aleck?

Interestingly, the very first chapter in Mechanic Leigh is titled Smart Ah Leck. Check it out. You might discover something about your gramps. Perhaps even learn something about your dad or yourself.

Join mechanic Leigh, through his years from six, to ten, and fourteen. Depending on which of the three generations you fell in, see life through the eyes of your grandpa, your pa, or even yourself.

Welcome to the world of Mechanic Leigh.

David G, Grade 3: tragicomic memoir of a reluctant atheist

by David Robert Loblaw

Fraught with anxiety, little David is troubled why Nuns wear wedding rings, why a confessed killer gets to go to Heaven, why Protestants are buried on the other side of the fence, why there are many half-souls in Limbo because of his spilled sperm.

A funny and sad memoir filled with a true cast of characters.

EXCERPT
Chapter 17: First Confession Error

First Communion is a wonderful pageant of pomp and circumstance: the girls in their best pure-white dresses, complete with veils to show modesty; us boys in crisp white shirts, black pants, clip-on little bowties or regular ties.
I have never seen my class-mates in this light before. Everyone looks pretty sharp. We march alphabetically down the main aisle of the massive Little Flower Church â?? girls in one column, boys right beside. Everyone is looking at us, the stars of the show.
When the As to Fs receive Communion and start to leave, it is now time for us Gs to Ns to kneel in our designated, rehearsed spots at the chancel, hands in prayer as we await.
“Don’t chew the Eucharist,” I keep repeating to myselfâ??that’s a sinâ??just let it dissolve on the tongue naturally.
“Never ever touch it,” we are told.
“Touching the body of Christ with a finger will fill your mouth with blood, pouring out all of your blood, filling the entire church with blood and drowning all of your family and friends.”
I must not do this I tell myself. Mom would be so mad and sad if I do.
(The photo on the front cover of this book is taken soon after my First Communion ceremony. It is taken downstairs in the basement of Little Flower Church, with Sister Margaret holding me, my terrified eyes asking why my mom is giving me away.)

A short while after First Communion, our Catechism starts to prepare us for Confession, our third Catholic Sacrament (after Baptism and First Communion.) This is something that sounds exciting.
I am looking forward to finally going in one of Little Flower’s beautiful wood Confessionals. All I know of them is their outside, covered with intricate carvings. My sister tells me of their stuffy warmth when you close the door and are kneeling, waiting alone in the dark. You can hear murmurings but everything is thick-wood muffled. It is very peaceful, she says.
Suddenly, in the dark, you hear a panel slide open and the ritual of Confession begins. Yvette says it is a wonderful experience; therefore, it must be.
You start with: “In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. My last confession was [x] weeks ago. These are my sins.”
You then simply list your sins, starting with your mortal sins of murder, rape, incest, adultery, theft, and false witness, then continue on to your venial sins of swearing, telling white lies, not being nice to your mom.
The best part is, no matter what you confess, everything is erased for another week. All of your sins â?? poof! gone, totally forgiven. I bet the Protestants are kicking themselves for not inventing this.
