    CLICK HERE to help fireproof your marriage ...

    "Fireproof" stands out first because it shows the limits of human love. Second, the love story is between a husband and wife, showing what can go wrong in marriage and what can go very right. Third it's about not what a lover gets but learns to give. And finally, this love story spins off a "Love Dare" book applicable to married couples everywhere.

    So click the graphics to view the trailers, find a theater, and take in the movie as a family.

    Plan a Monster Bash
    CLICK HERE for more!

    (ARA) - You're invited to a "Monster Bash." What's more fun than Halloween? Young or old, everyone seems to get into the spirit. Why not gather a group together this Halloween and have some spooky fun along with a frightening feast?

    When planning a Halloween party, it is best to consider the ages of all goblins that will be attending. Adults and children may both love the fun of Halloween, but the fright factor will be different. Once you have established your guest list, you can start to plan "tricks or treats."

    Eat Breakfast and Lose Weight
    CLICK HERE for more ...

    (ARA) - Whether you're skipping breakfast to save on calories or running out the door in a rush with only a cup of coffee in hand, you're not doing yourself or your health any favors. Numerous studies have shown that eating breakfast can help people lose weight while promoting heart health, cognitive performance and increased energy.

    According to a study published in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association, women who ate breakfast regularly tended to eat fewer calories overall during the day. A healthy breakfast fuels the body and replenishes blood sugar levels to rev up metabolism for maximum calorie burn from morning until night.

    Easy Ways to Give Back During the Holiday Season
    CLICK HERE for more ...

    (ARA) - Your life is busy any time of the year, but with the holidays comes a longer to-do list and more stress. So, how can you embody the giving spirit of the season in an efficient way without breaking the bank (or your back)?

    There are easy ways to give back during the holiday season if you just get a little creative and make a resolution to share.

    Prepare Your Vehicle for the Winter Driving Season

    (ARA) - With much of the country enjoying unseasonably warm weather, it might be easy to forget that winter -- and the weather challenges that come with the season -- will be here before we know it. Before the weather gets nasty, now is a good time to make sure that your vehicle is ready for Mother Nature's worst outbursts.

    "We all prepare for winter to some degree," says Jim Sinclair, vice president of service for Subaru of America, Inc. "And even if your vehicle enjoys the superior traction and inherent safety of all-wheel drive, you'll still need to give your vehicle a thorough 'winterizing' treatment."
