El Cielo es Real
Libro por: Todd Burpo & Lynn Vincent
Creo que sin importar realmente de que religión eres, siempre toda la gente ha tenido curiosidad por saber que pasa después de la muerte. Hasta Hollywood ha hecho películas acerca del tema, con fantasmas, algunas han sido de miedo, otras cómicas, pero al final, siempre queda la pregunta de si todas estas cosas son una fantasía o son reales.
El Cielo es Real es un libro que cuenta la historia de un niño de solo 4 años, que después de tener una cirugía de emergencia, le cuenta a su padre y familia la experiencia casi increíble que tuvo, una experiencia de muerte. El niño describe como su alma dejo su cuerpo y el podía ver a los doctores operándole, y como visito al cielo, conoció a Dios y también vio a familiares que ya estaban muertos y que él nunca había conocido.
El niño, Colton, le conto la historia a su papa, un pastor de Nebraska y el libro escrito por Lynn Vincent autora de libros que ha tenido mucho éxito en las listas de New York, es una historia que con toda seguridad va a causar muchas controversias, pero que te mantendrá interesado en continuar leyendo, para saber que mas pasa.
El libro es demasiado interesante y la historia es emocionante.

Coming back from vacation and I think I need a vacation… LOL
Seriously, I got back from my awesome trip to Hawaii, and now I have so many things to do not only at home but at work. I am not even closed to be caught up with laundry and house chores, and now I have to do a week worth of work because my duties were not done while I was done. I have been working long hours and I even had to work this weekend (both days)
My son starts school on Wednesday, and I hope that we go back to reality and kind of on schedule again. You can call me crazy but on top of all I have going on right now, I am also part of PTA, so more things to get done and volunteer time.
I guess not really an excuse, but it does make it harder to get my exercise done. So this week I want to commit myself to walk at least 4 days. I am also going back to eating healthier. Too much junk on the last 2 weeks and that cannot happen again.
I am also going back to the water intake. Yes, I had some Margaritas and drinks while on vacation and also a lot of diet soda so going back to my water is necessary.
I want to wish luck to all the mamavation applicants and maybe I can try to work out your workouts…
I am also very sad that the sistas were so close to me on fitcation12 and due to my work schedule I was not able to meet them. Hugs to all of you and thank you for being there for me.
Latinos living in the US need to be informed about political changes. They affect us in several ways, such as immigration, education and health among other aspects.
Following and understanding political campaigns can be difficult and Nuvotv is going to make it easier for us. We Decide: Latinos and the 2012 Election a TV show premiering on nuvoTV on Aug. 19 at 8PM (ET/PT) and presented by today show's Natalie Morales. She will serve as moderator for a panel of high-profile politic experts that will be answering questions from a live audience and also from people from social platforms such as twitter. The focus of the show is to inform the audience how the presidential candidates are addressing the issues that affect Latinos.
The show will provide information about how the Presidential candidates will be handling the issues that Latinos are concerned about every day. The statistics show that Latinos have a higher rate of unemployment, poverty and we struggle with education. How each candidate will handle the issues that concern us (Latinos) will dictate our future for the next 4 years.
It is not easy to make an educated choice, but as Latinos we need to think on how the president campaign will affect us. It is my opinion that regardless of how you like and choose, we need to think about the rest of the Latino population and the problems that we face every day.
Issues affecting Latinos and other statistics: (source: Pew Hispanic Research)
Latino Poverty Rate (Greater increase than any other ethnic group)
2006 – 20.6%
2010 – 26.6%
Children Living in Poverty
African American – 4.4 million
White – 5.0 million
Latino – 6.1 million
No High School Diploma Adults 20 or older
White – 14%
Asian – 15%
African American – 23%
Latino – 41%
From personal experience going through the process of immigration it is not easy and having advocates helping our community is fundamental. We also need help understanding the meaning of the new health care reform and how things are still not on set stone and might change affecting our population drastically.
Being informed and understanding the ideas of each candidate will make choosing the candidate to vote for. I think that having a TV show with experts can give us some clarification on all this issues.
Latinos have a huge impact on the votes as shown on the Pew Hispanic Research
2008 Presidential Election
Eligible Whites who votes – 66%
Eligible African Americans who voted – 65%
Eligible Latinos who voted – 50%
So let's make our voice be heard with an educated decision.

A few weeks back I heard for the First time about Tommy Torres and I felt in love with his music (I blogged about it) The songs are very romantic and easy to listen to.
Now Tommy Torres has a new single out. 11:11 the new music video is a very different video, but it has you glued to the TV (or computer) waiting to see what else happens. The video starts with him tied up to a chair in a room full of toys and then he finds his way out to be playful with his lady.
The video actually relates to the lyrics of the song. The song is about a couple that friends call boring, because they stay at home and are not our partying. I feel very identified with the song. I have already party hard when I was younger, but now with a kid on board I rather have a family night.
This does not mean, as the song says, that after a while, while relaxing and cuddling on the bed, things cannot turn out to be fun. Actually the name of the song 11:11 is because it is at that time that the couple after some cuddling start having fun with each other (I know you know what I mean… caliente!)
The rhythm of the song is very romantic and I can say that it would be a great song to listen while you cuddle with your partner in bed on a Friday night, as the song goes…
It will certainly help you to be in the mood for a romantic night and to learn to enjoy quiet nights at home. Fun does not have to be going out to dance; family quiet nights at home can be really great too.
You can watch the video 11:11, Tommy’s new song on YouTube and subscribe to www.youtube.com/TommyTorresWML
I am very new to the blogger world. I have seen friends and a lot of other bloggers attend fabulous conferences. I have always wanted to attend one, but for a lot of reasons, I have not been able to attend.
It has been either that I cannot get time off from work or I do not have the money
Latina Mom Bloggers is having a giveaway for 2 passes for this conference and I am writing this to help promote and enter the giveaway.
This year Blogalicious Weekend will be held September 28-30, 2012 at the luxurious Red Rock Resort & Spa in Las Vegas, Nevada. I really think this conference would be good for me because this conference is the conference known as a go to conference for multicultural bloggers, business and entrepreneurs.
