Get Your Falling Free Bonus Freebies!

When Summer vacation began, roughly two-and-a-half blinks ago, I had resolved to be "done" writing for a while. And I was, and I have been, and it has been absolutely glorious to have a break and to not stress about finding time to work while my kiddos are be-bopping around the house, causing all manner of chaos and cuteness.

But I have had some stuff to do, and at first it took me off guard, like, "Waaaait a minute, why am I staying up late doing stuff when I'm not supposed to be doing anything?"

I had hit the busy-work phase of launching a book, and I wasn't sure how to process it. Is this fun? Is this work? Can it be both? Because it totally is.

In the wee hours of the morning/(night) and in stolen moments here and there, I put together a bunch of fun freebies for anyone who pre-orders a copy of Falling Free: Rescued From the Life I Always Wanted. Some of them are typical (you can automatically download the first two chapters of the book...as in, TODAY!) and others speak to my weirder side (a tour of my home, including the kids' rooms which were filmed in their "native state"). But all of the freebies, every single one of them, is F.U.N. I wanted to be sure they were things that would be very "Shannan", bonuses I would be interested in myself.

In short order, here they are:
* Home tour (It's so unbelievably wonky, guys. Very on-the-fly. Very Martin-esque.)
* Downloadable Introduction and Chapters 1 & 2 (the ultimate tease!)
* A playlist of the music that spoke to me most while writing Falling Free
* A high-res, downloadable fine art print from Jess Franks, one of my favorite artists on the planet.

A note on the printable: IT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE. As you probably know, I'm a big fat believer in beautiful, gigantic, unique artwork. When I found Jess it was like the skies parted. Through a strange course of events, I was able to track her down and beg her to be a part of this launch. She's an amazing, gifted woman with a huge heart and soulful spirit. You can find her on Instagram here and she also currently has a store at Minted here. (Jess Franks curtains. GAH!!!!!)


I printed mine off on a 2'x3' rolled canvas and tacked it over my couch. I can't stop staring at it.

But back to the pre-order skinny.

If you order five copies of Falling Free (book club! church group!) you get all of the above AND a discussion guide, a recipe book of my favorite recipes, and an additional free signed copy.

I enjoyed putting this together for all of you so very much. It's a tremendous honor to have your support and if I can offer back some legit artwork and a video of myself with bad hair, well, it's the least I can do.

To pre-order, click over to the Falling Free Book website. (There are several options for where you'd like to pre-order.) Then, to redeem your prizes (I feel so very The Price is Right!) just enter your order number and the retailer where you ordered. The goods will be emailed directly to you.

For those of you who have already pre-ordered, just dig through your email, find your receipt, and punch the order number in!

There are also a ton of other things on the website that make me feel squeally and generally middle-schoolerish, like the book trailer, shareable quote images (created with love and talent by my buddy, Katy Girl) and blurbs penned by some of my favorite writers on behalf of my little book.  (hint: THEY MAKE ME WEEPY.)

Check it out, and pass it on!

XO,
Shannan

Try blending your routine a little each week just to keep things entertaining. The fastest way to lose weight is best achieved when you can remain persistent.

  34. We are all squarely and comfortably placed here - sinners, all.Therefore, these concluding few sentences from James - the urgent, blunt slave of Christ - are a proclamation to last like a taste in our mouths. He says to us, "You should know.Let us, for a moment, let those three words absorb into our conscious minds.This is a twofold message, plain and simple. As sinners we are to recognise the gift of God provident in these. As sinners we are also supposed to note that we, too, have a role - at the God-appointed time - to speak truth into the lives of our fellows, as and how the Spirit leads.Redressing wrongdoing - either our own or making another aware, without judgment - is a task we are anointed for. Wisdom, however, has it working; nothing else.

  35. Soul protection or guidance is essentialManifestation Magic Review because our interests, desires, and satisfactions are not all on par. Some are better, higher and worthier than others. The struggles we face in everyday life stem from the inability to comprehend one's own nature, and recognize the important role the soul must play in one's life. So you must be able to use the powers of soul at will if you want to advance in life.

    The soul, of course, is the highest part of human nature. And the soul faculty of reason is the highest human faculty. Thus the rational mastery of the soul must be allowed unhindered expression. For the spiritual perfection of rational life represents the consummation of what you are meant to be.

  36. Allergic reactions to MSG can be subtle and may seem as though they were caused by stress. If you suffer from headaches, chest pain, rapid heartbeat, diarrhea, depression, mood swings, anxiety, hyperactivity, tumors, insomnia, asthma attacks, tongue swelling MSG may be to blame. Allergic reactions are difficult to sense, but should go away if you are allergic to MSG and you stop consuming it.

    One interesting side effect from MSG is its ability to tell the body to keep eating. Glutamate is an amino acid that triggers the rewards system in the brain. So more and more glutamate is entering the body and telling the body to feel good eventually upsets the balance that is needed for a healthy mind. I feel it is time to get off MSG for good.

  37. Indeed, in life and existence, understanding that is genuine comes through not depending on our opinions, but depending solely on reality and what really is objectively. Some people rush to judgement for better or worse out of subjective opinion, and I would just like to say about that: Even if it ends up good or bad, rushing to judgement is wrong to do, and acting on the genuine facts whatever they may be is genuinely right.So, we cannot judge unless we are working on principle and reality that is objectively based. I understand that everything from the lowest slug up to God and whatever is the greatest works by the same objective rules. I can only tell you to think about that fact deeply. For, indeed, reality comes down to what is and what really works in it, not what we want, not opinion, and not even what we really need.Build a better mouse trap, and the world will come beating a path to your door, some will say? Well, build a mouse trap that consistently works the way it is supposed to, and you will have skillfully built a mouse trap. Everything depends on reality and what works in it, nothing else. It includes and especially means spirituality. Sure, the regular physical world is the same thing only shallower, but know this, all things do work by law, reality and understanding that works.
    Sensitive to all that is around me brings me the ideals of compassion, love and belonging. This has become more pronounced than any other time in my life/

  40. Cardiovascular exercise, also known as aerobic exercise, is good for fat burning because it burns a number of calories forcing your body to turn to its reserves, your fat cells, for energy. The key to weight loss with cardio exercise is to make sure you burn more each day than you intake.If your normal intake is 2000 calories then you'll want to make sure you burn at least 2000 calories each week or to drop your intake to 1900 or 1800 calories each day. It's important to know that you're not going to burn 2000 calories through exercise, probably only 300-500 depending on your cardio fitness program of choice, however you do burn calories through daily living, walking to the mailbox, breathing, playing with your dog and so on. You can use an online calorie calculator to help you determine the number of calories you need for daily maintenance.

  41. The hard work comes into play when you do your workout routineThe Venus Factor 2.0The Venus Factor 2.0. Whether that hard work comes from doing P90X Ab Ripper, Insanity Cardio Abs, or any other routine. Hard work is a must to develop ab muscles. And it takes discipline. I had someone I coach once say to me,"I have been doing the P90X Ab Ripper after the workouts most of the time. I skip a few, but I did it three times last month". Uh... it should be coming up in your workout about three times a WEEK. My response was to do the work. Follow the routine and work hard.Once you've made up your mind to do the hard work, then comes the time to actually do it. No "I skip a few" or "I don't feel like it this time" deals. Get that out of your head. Tell yourself that you're doing this and nothing is stopping you. If you don't, the lean six-pack abs you dream of will remain a dream.
