Holiday Hip List 2018: Christine Argo

Christine Agro has spent almost 20 years helping others achieve a higher level of consciousness, and she talks about some of those tips with #HipNJ’s Maria Falzo.
 
Her book, “Awaken & Grow: A Practical Guide For Your Spiritual Journey” gives you the inside track on not only the process of our Spiritual Journey but also takes you a step further and shares what to do once you’ve had your awakening. From insight and guidance to tools and tips, Awaken & Grow is a crash course in our reason for being. It turns your AHA moment into an AHA life!
 
Awaken & Grow is broken into three parts: 
 
Awaken
 
In Awaken, Christine takes you through the phases of our awakening process, explains why and how we awaken and why we don’t come in awakened in the first place.
 
Grow
In Grow, she explores the three stages that our growth takes us through – no matter what lesson you are trying to learn, you are going to move through these three stages and understanding this can help you move more quickly and more easily through the process. She also explores the three core life lessons we are all working on, lessons that are the root of any conflict you might experience. Understand this and you will be that much closer to learning those lessons and moving forward on your journey.
 
Putting It All Together
In Putting It All Together, Christine dives into some of the tools to help you navigate your Spiritual growth and shares some of the ways that living an Awakened life can help you create the life you love.
 
As Christine is experiential in nature and believes in doing over reading, so at the end of the book, she’s included a link that takes you to the Awaken & Grow Bonus Package which includes mini video courses designed to help you move the information in this book from your mind to your body. Make 2019 your most fulfilling year yet!

#FridayReads Suzanne Trauth – Just in Time

Hey #HipNJ! Looking for a great read for #FridayReads? Check out Suzanne Trauth’s Just in Time, part of the Dodie O’Dell Mystery series! 

FACE THE MUSIC

Business is humming at Dodie O’Dell’s Windjammer Restaurant, where she offers theme menus connected to the Etonville Little Theatre’s amateur productions. This June, the theatre is collaborating with the neighboring Creston Players to stage Bye Bye Birdie under the stars—their first musical! There’s a contest in the play to pick a fan to receive rock idol Conrad Birdie’s last kiss before he ships off for the Army, so Dodie plans a contest to pick the food for a pre-show picnic.
 
But before the show opens, Ruby, the rehearsal accompanist, is found dead in her car. Why would anyone murder the crusty old gal who loved to sneak a smoke and a nip between wisecracks? Once again, the resourceful restaurant manager must play the part of amateur sleuth, accompanied by Police Chief Bill Thompson, who also happens to be her beau. Confronted with a chorus of suspects, she’ll need to stay composed to catch the killer—or it’ll be bye bye Dodie…
