Mary, Mary: (Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary) (Once Upon a Rhyme Series Book 1) by Elizabeth Rose

Golden Palm Contest Finalist!

Book 1 of the Gnarled Nursery Rhymes Series.

Raven Birchfield moves into her dead eccentric aunt’s home with her mother and younger brother not realizing her life is about to change in ways she’s never imagined. The house backs up to a small graveyard. When she goes to plant a flower in her new yard for her horticulture class, strange things happen.

She digs up an old nursery rhyme book as well as a quartz crystal on a necklace. A raven keeps following her around and she keeps hearing an eerie voice calling out the name Mary on the breeze. To make matters worse, at her new high school she starts to be bullied by one of the popular, pretty girls who happens to have a boyfriend that Raven wishes was hers.

After researching the origins of nursery rhymes for her term paper, Raven finds out that they are really stories of horrid people and events from history, one of them being about Bloody Mary who is featured in the nursery rhyme, Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary.

When an instance propels Raven into an alternate reality where she ends up in the body and hearing the thoughts of the man killer, Mary, she is forced to make choices that will alter her life as well as Mary’s forever.

I am Successful: Journal Affirmations for Girls by Elizabeth D. Gray

An affirmation on its own is a powerful thing. However, flexing the muscle of an affirmation with the conscious expression of your own words, thoughts and experiences is a transformative thing. Use this affirmational journal to not only absorb the powerful messages in each affirmation, but to accentuate them tenfold by the expressions of your own creation.

Excellent as a journal for one girl or as a tool to use in a group setting for writing and discussion. Each entry covers a different topic and then allows space for the reader to do their own writing. Topics are particularly relevant today. Doesn’t talk down or issue simple edicts, such as “love yourself,” but takes a different approach, which respects intelligence and individuality. There is an emphasis on empowerment, self-esteem and personal accountability.

Gifted With Grit

We hear the term gifted
And we equate it with guaranteed success
Because the gifted individual
Has the advantage
Of some special intelligence
They’re ahead of the game
But I am among the luckiest of girls
For I am gifted with grit
I am gifted with the resolve
To never give up
No matter how long it takes me
To get where I want to go
I am gifted with tenacity
When you tell me I am not capable
You’ll witness me prove you wrong
I am gifted with courage to forge ahead
Even when I am certain to fail
Several times before I succeed
The gift of grit is perhaps more powerful
Than any other gifted advantage
And why is that so?
Because a person with grit
Makes up for any weakness
By the sheer resolve of will
And a person who refuses to give up
Though challenged in the most monumental ways
Can overcome any obstacle
I refuse to be limited by any label
That describes me as anything but gifted
Because I most certainly am gifted
Gifted with grit

The Magic Formula for Thinking Straight: Accepting Yourself (if you’re confused about your sexuality) by Jahmone Salmon

This #1 Amazon best seller helps you to identify who you are and show you a formula to accept it. Thinking straight means you’re being you (Straight, Bisexual, Gay or of any other sexual identity).The formula I am about to show you isn’t new, I have to admit that. The formula is out there; many times you might have heard it but never knew or understood it. The world may have been SUBCONSCIOUSLY trying to tell you that there is a FORMULA straight guys use all their lives. I have no problem with people who are confused about their sexuality, however; I am here to help those who want to accept their sexual preference. Once you choose who you want to be, then the next step would be to accept you, and by this, I mean ‘being you or be yourself’.What this book offers is a legitimate explanation as to what you could be going through if you’re struggling with your sexuality, straight guys’ biggest formula that works like MAGIC and how to fool yourselves. Yes, that’s right, what’s wrong with FOOLING yourselves or as you would call it, “CHANGE THE WAY YOU THINK” because it ultimately comes down to THE WAY YOU THINK. But I guess you weren’t ‘THINKING STRAIGHT’.NB: Your mind will be romanced.

Vision

Anyone can have pretty eyes
But not everyone has vision
That is another thing entirely
Vision sets forth the promise
Of possibilities before you
Vision imagines a path ahead
When all avenues appear blocked
Vision ignites a fire within
Allowing you to knock down walls
Vision places you ahead of this moment
Providing a preview of future success
Vision sets aside all obstacles
Relegating them to the category of insignificant
Vision is the tool by which
You construct your own wings
And use them to fly
Vision fuels your ability
To create your own momentum
To lift yourself from
The circumstances of the present
And into a tomorrow
Designed by you
Vision is not a quitter
It is immutable
Reinventing itself eternally
To address every conceivable situation
So go ahead and tell me I have pretty eyes
I will smile and thank you
But anyone can have pretty eyes
And I myself
Would rather be known
For having vision

Becoming Me: Journal Affirmations for Girls Vol 2 (Becoming Me. Journal Affirmations for Girls) by Elizabeth D. Gray

Excellent as a journal for one girl or as a tool to use in a group setting for writing and discussion. Each entry covers a different topic and then allows space for the reader to do their own writing. Topics are particularly relevant today, such as the entry, “The Heart of a Bully.” Doesn’t talk down or issue simple edicts, such as “love yourself,” but takes a different approach, which respects intelligence and individuality. There is an emphasis on empowerment, self-esteem and personal accountability.

The Heart of Bully

What can be found
In the heart of a bully?
It’s not what you’d expect
Words spoken with feigned strength
In a heart that is afraid of itself
The heart of a bully
Beats in the most irregular way
Unable to cure its ills
It can only express its pain
In the most destructive ways
The heart of a bully
Points to others
So that they themselves
Might not be seen
Terrified to reveal
The ugliness of their own pain
The heart of a bully
Has not the courage
To confront the destruction within
Instead wielding their pain
To produce heartbreak in others
The heart of bully cries out
Unable to recognize
That even as it wreaks havoc
It too cries out for mercy
Too ashamed to ask for help
The heart of a bully
Boasts not strength
But the despair of utter brokenness
