I am going to say something that rarely ever comes out of my mouth. I am so excited to start cooking. I can’t thank you all enough for all the amazing squash recipes. I was really excited to see some of the simpler ones to start out with for weekday meals and I will try the more complicated (yet still easy) recipes on the weekend. Hubby and my baby bassets were very happy when I stopped serving the steam in a bag veggies and moved on to actually cooking broccoli, asparagus, and cauliflower in the oven with salt, pepper, and olive oil. I was able to do it because it was quick and easy, so with the recipes you sent I can now move on to delicious Fall veggies. I feel like I am being such a good mom. Today my mother in law is coming over, so we are going to check out some of the local farms for the different squashes you recommended I try. She doesn’t know yet that I will be dragging her around the county, but I really want to try these recipes NOW!

Redefining Normal : How Two Foster Kids Beat The Odds and Discovered Healing, Happiness and Love
by Alexis Black, Justin Black
4.7 Stars (4 Reviews)
Genre: Politics & Social Sciences | Self-Help | Health, Fitness & Dieting

FREE for a limited time

Growing up, they didn’t believe they had a future. Together, they are building forever.

Alexis Black persevered through her mother’s death and her father’s imprisonment. And after escaping a long and abusive relationship, the college junior promised her foster parents not to date for at least a year. But when she meets an incoming freshman on the first day of their scholarship program, she feels the world melt away, as though it were only the two of them in the room.

Justin Black lived in the poorest section of Detroit before his parents surrendered him to the foster care system at the age of nine. But when he grabs the chance for better opportunities by pursuing higher education, he can’t help but be drawn to a beautiful third-year student. At first, their past traumas–and their age difference–conspired to complicate their attraction. But the joy each took in the other and eventually conquered those obstacles, and these two survivors journeyed together toward healing.

In a stark and wholehearted true story that shares how two individuals on separate paths found each other, Alexis and Justin merge their course into one full of hope and purpose. And hand-in-hand, with a desire to help others, they learned to reject the abusive patterns of their past, thereby intentionally breaking the cycle of generational violence and unhealthy behaviors.

Written in an engaging novelistic style, the authors put forward a thoughtful exchange of ideas and personal experiences illustrating how anybody, no matter their backgrounds, can have a life of self-empowerment and joy. Broken down into four sections that cover crucial topics such as “Worthiness” and “Mental Health,” this compelling narrative will help any who are learning to love themselves and want to end the line of toxic relationships.

Redefining Normal: How Two Foster Kids Beat The Odds and Discovered Healing, Happiness and Love is a page-turning memoir that will open your eyes to possibilities and dreams. If you like honest tales of triumph, refreshing transparency, and resilient faith in God, then you’ll adore Justin and Alexis’ inspirational story.

This story contains mentions of domestic violence, trauma, sexual assault, and other difficult issues faced on the road to healing.
