Book Review- "Run With Me"

Book Description

For as long as four-time Olympic gold medalist Sanya Richards-Ross can remember, life has been measured in seconds—the fewer, the better.

The Jamaican-American sprinter has been a star track and field athlete since she first began racing, ranking No. 1 in the world and bringing home Olympic and World Championship accolades. A role model for runners around the world, Sanya’s incredible success is matched only by her spirit both on and off the track.

From her early days running in Jamaica to her final race, Sanya shares the importance of determination, courage, and faith. She uses the 4 Ps—push, pace, position, and poise—a model created by her coach, Clyde Hart, to approach and tackle every obstacle. In her book, Sanya reveals how these strategies have helped her and will help kids learn how to run their best race in life.

Run with Me is Sanya’s story—her wins and her losses—chronicling her unique triumphs and trials with fame, family, and faith. Written purposely for the 8-12 audience, this book will inspire kids to pursue their dreams at full speed.

Run With Me has a beautifully embossed cover.

My Review:
I received a copy of this book from the Book Look program for free.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% my own. 

I wanted to get this book for my daughter.   She is still very young but has developed a love for running. My daughter is more of a long distance runner not a sprinter like Sanya but either way giving her good role models was the goal and I feel it was successful!  
As Sanya discusses her move to the United States and putting in the hard work to get the success she was striving for made me hope my daughter would relate to wanting to work hard for her dreams.  Not only did she go in detail of the work ethic but also explained her faith and putting that as a priority!  

My daughter really seemed to enjoy it and her correlation to working hard and do it joyfully for the Lord seems to be the clear takeaway from this book.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most
