5 Tips For Creating a Romantic Night and Fun Dinner at Home

Valentines Day is just around the corner and maybe you're already thinking how to make this occasion really special. Here are some ideas for a romantic and fun dinner at home either for several couples or just for two.
Sensual Scents
Whether planning for one guest or several couples, let robust spices (think cloves, canela, cardamom and black pepper) help set the mood with the help of a standard frying pan. Toast the spices just to their smoking point, and the room will fill with an inviting--and delicious--bouquet.
Pairing Is Caring
When prepping for a perfect evening, pairings are a fun way to turn any meal into a special occasion and spice up the fun. Plan three courses and pair each with a small cocktail. A fun and easy way is to use one base spirit in three different ways.
Make It A Group Effort Let your guests in the kitchen and encourage them to enjoy the tactile sensation of the food as it is prepared. Start the party early and enjoy cocktails as you cook.

Tips for Hosting an Incredible Women's Ministry Program

As you become intentional about developing amazing women's ministry programs, you'll quickly learn that it's not as complicated as it seems. If you remain extremely prepared and provide the right atmosphere, the women will feel ministered to. Consider the following tips to host an incredible women's ministry event. 

1. Develop a team. Don't make the mistake of trying to take on this endeavor by yourself. Instead, it's always wise to incorporate the help of a team. You can put someone in charge of advertising. Another person can be in charge of gathering the food for the event. Someone else can manage the speakers for the event. Utilize your team so it doesn't fall on you. 

2. Provide refreshments. Who doesn't want to come to an event with good food? In this case, you can serve light refreshments. Even if you don't have a large budget, it's always great to provide food. Plus, it's easy to get creative. A large punch bowl, chips and brownies can go far. Don't let finances stop you. There are ways to stretch food in order to feed the masses that come to your event. 

3. Advertise in advance. Don't wait until a week before the event to advertise it. Instead, you'll want to make sure you promote the event in advance. Begin to create buzz a month before. This way, women can set aside time in their schedule to make sure they prioritize the event. Another great way to promote the event involves adding a charitable factor. It's always amazing when a ministry can actively give back to others. If you're charging a small fee for this christian women workshop, reserve a portion of the proceeds to cover missions and work that serves the community. 

4. Give women room to communicate and process. While it's really nice for women to get together to listen to a speaker, women want to converse with one another. More than anything else, women want to feel like they're heard. They want to feel like they have a safe space to communicate with others. Even if you have a panel or a keynote speaker, make sure there's a part of the program that's dedicated to dialogue, questions and conversation.

3 Tools to Help Special-Needs Students Thrive

Learning is not a one-size-fits-all system. Students with physical, mental or learning disabilities often benefit from an unconventional approach to education. These three tools can help them get through each school day with a sense of achievement.
1. Rules and Rewards
Rules provide a necessary amount of structure to a child's day. Stating rules and expectations clearly and having a visual reminder of what those expectations are will help kids navigate their choices. Placing a colorful list of rules up at home or in the classroom can be really helpful. Pairing rules with rewards for good behavior is also a great motivational tool. It helps kids learn that actions have consequences and empower them to make good choices.
2. Tactile Tools
Though many classrooms cater to an auditory learning style, not all students thrive within that kind of environment. For kids with visual or auditory impairment or for kids who have trouble focusing on their schoolwork, getting through class can be e…

Cancelling Timeshares: When to Do It

Sometimes buying a timeshare will seem like a great idea upfront, but turn out to be something that doesn’t quite fit into your budget. In these circumstances, it’s important to consider how to get out from under a timeshare.
Why Cancel Timeshares
Sometimes timeshares aren’t what anyone thought that they would be. The pitch sounds good and so you sign up. While there is usually a period of time where you are allowed to rescind the contract. A few days to a couple of weeks is usually the timeframe that you have. If you decide after that point in time to cancel, then you may have to go through a longer process. Still, one of the reasons that people get rid of the timeshares is because it doesn’t fit into their budget. If this is you, then there are ways that you can get out from under it.
Timeshare Cancellation Services
Timeshares are notoriously difficult to sell. There is little control over timeshares. Likewise, there are fees that you have to pay, regardless of whether you use the pro…

How To Choose a Quality HVAC Professional

Florida is known for swampy days, lots of sunshine and warm temperatures. The worst feeling is the air conditioner going out in the dead of summer. Even the breeze off the water does little to cool the house. Here are some tips to choose a quality heating and cooling professional.
Family and friends are a great place to start looking for a Riverview FL heating and cooling professional. They can tell you who they loved using and who they didn’t. A flashy website or radio ad may sound good but talking to people and reading testimonials can give you a better idea on whether or not they deliver on their promises.
An HVAC contractor shouldn’t give you with an estimate over the phone without properly inspecting your insulation, air conditioner or vents. How can they know how much work is to be done without ever looking at your unique situation? An inspection shouldn’t cost you anything.
If the HVAC contractor has a website, see if they post their licensing and c…
