"We are thrilled to team up with such great companies. As we grow we want to expand our resources that parents and athletes have when trying to get a college scholarship," says Mike Enright, CEO at RecruitLook. com. "We could try and emulate these companies and offer the same services, however; we did not want to get away from our expertise, and that is helping high school athletes get exposure. We figured we would let the professionals in their respective fields help us as we expand, and because our companies complement each other so well a partnership was the best way to go."

About MentalEdge. com:

Knowing physical strength is only part of being a great competitor, RecruitLook. com sought a company like MentalEdge. com to provide members with information about the mental approach of competing. Mental Edge was founded in 1998 with the goal of helping athletes as the cope with the mental side of sports. The skills required to achieve individual goals are often overlooked because the primary focus for development is concentrated more on physical attributes than mental approach. At MentalEdge, their mission is to increase personal achievement and elevate the experience of individuals through mentoring and the teaching of competencies necessary to achieve a positive experience, on and off the field of play. www. mentaledgenow. com

In return, MentalEdge will contribute articles and blogs periodically on RecruitLook discussing the importance of the mental approach. MentalEdge will be featured in all RecruitLook's publications to make athletes aware that the mental game is just as important as the physical aspect.

"This is exciting for our company as we look to grow our customer base. RecruitLook not only is a great tool for us to promote MentalEdge. com, but they're helping high school athletes in the pursuit for higher education which is a passion of mine," says MentalEdge. com Founder Shaun Goodsell.

Surprisingly Simple Questions that Deliver Deeply Powerful Answers - Wendy Craig-Purcell Challenges Readers to 'Ask Yourself This'

Surprisingly Simple Questions that Deliver Deeply Powerful Answers - Wendy Craig-Purcell Challenges Readers to 'Ask Yourself This'

While many books are written to give us answers, Wendy Craig-Purcell's new book, Ask Yourself This, guides us to ask ourselves the deeper, self-reflective questions to call forth our own personally-unique answers. Ask Yourself This takes a fluid, dynamic approach based on questions that are essential at this very important moment in humankind's evolution. The book was released September 1 by Unity House.

(Vocus) September 16, 2009

Unity Village, MO. While many books are written to give us answers, Wendy Craig-Purcell's (http://www. wendycraigpurcell. com/) new book, Ask Yourself This, guides us to ask ourselves the deeper, self-reflective questions to call forth our own personally-unique answers. Ask Yourself This takes a fluid, dynamic approach based on questions that are essential at this very important moment in humankind's evolution. The book was released September 1 by Unity House (http://www. unity. org/).

"The essence of Ask Yourself This is that living a spiritually vibrant life is not only personally powerful; it is absolutely relevant in today's world. The circumstances many of us are facing in these troubled times require us to re-think various aspects of our lives ranging from spirituality and life purpose to careers and relationships. Questions are channels through which our mental, emotional and creative energy flow. As we allow these questions to settle deeply within ourselves, the answers we receive will be uniquely our own opening us up to possibilities we never considered before. When we think differently and act differently, the results we receive are delightfully different," said Craig-Purcell.

While guided inquiry is as old as Socrates, Craig-Purcell's process is designed for today's consciously-aware reader. The book is powerful with real-life anecdotes and supporting quotations for added impact and understanding. The category of questions covers happiness, relationships, inner genius, success, spirituality, self-knowledge and personal growth.

Examples include: What if this could be easy and fun? How safe is it for people to walk through the corridors of my mind? If I could solve the "how," what would I do? Am I willing to let go of the size of the life I've known to have a bigger life?

"For countless numbers of people, the religions of our childhood have fallen short in answering many of our most important questions. It is from our own innate spirituality that new answers arise leading us to personal transformation and the integration of higher levels of consciousness in our day-to-day living," said Craig-Purcell.

This first-time author is uniquely qualified to help readers pause, reflect and expand their understanding. Ordained as one of the youngest Unity ministers, Craig-Purcell founded The Unity Center in San Diego, California (http://www. theunitycenter. net/web/index. htm), while still in her twenties. Over the last two decades, this spiritual community of members and friends has grown to over 4,000.

The book recounts how Craig-Purcell applied the questions in the book at critical points in her own life, from deciding to become a parent to solving problems with a church building project. The section on parenting is based on her experiences using questions to understand and guide her children. Craig-Purcell continues to use questions in her daily meditations.

Craig-Purcell describes herself as spiritual but not religious. "To me, religion is about a set of beliefs. Spirituality is about living from an awareness of God. Religion tends to divide us. Spirituality unites us," she said. Craig-Purcell draws from Eastern and Western faith traditions and from the work of visionaries Charles and Myrtle Fillmore (http://www. unity. org/aboutunity/whoWeAre/unityHistory. html), founders of the Unity movement.

Spiritual teachers with similar views include Rev. Dr. Michael Beckwith (http://www. agapelive. com/index. php? page=3) and Deepak Chopra (http://www. chopra. com/), M. D. Craig-Purcell has worked closely with Beckwith through her involvement with the Association for Global New Thought (http://www. agnt. org/). In 2008, she interviewed Chopra for a six-part video series, Jesus and the Awakening to God-Consciousness (http://shop. unityonline. org/index. asp? PageAction=VIEWPROD&ProdID=252). The series was aired this year on KQED (http://www. kqed. org/) in San Francisco and other public broadcasting affiliates.

Ask Yourself This: Questions to Open the Heart, Expand the Mind and Awaken the Soul, is 125 pages in soft cover with a cover price of $14.95. The book is available through the Unity House Web site (http://shop. unity. org (http://shop. unity. org)) and through distributors DeVorss, New Leaf and Ingram.

Craig-Purcell can be reached through her public relations coordinator, Barbara Ben-David, at 858-689-6500 Ext #105. Please visit the website at www. wendycraigpurcell. com.

About Unity
Unity is a positive, practical, progressive approach to Christianity based on the teachings of Jesus and the power of prayer. Unity focuses on the teachings of Jesus and how to apply them in everyday life, rather than focusing on Jesus as a person. In Unity, Jesus is viewed as the great example of what is possible for humankind, rather than the exception.

Unity co-founders Charles and Myrtle Fillmore wanted to help people realize their oneness with God, and to demonstrate the amazing power of the Christ spirit within. They taught others how to see the Christ in themselves as well as in others.

The organizations that carry forth the Fillmores' work are the Unity School of Christianity and the Association of Unity Churches International and its member churches. Unity is also part of the broader New Thought movement. Unity School is headquartered at Unity Village, Missouri, on a 1400-acre tract 15 miles southeast of Kansas City. The Association of Unity Churches International is headquartered in Lee's Summit, Missouri, just a few miles from Unity Village.

Unity House®, the multimedia publishing arm of Unity School of Christianity, has been publishing spiritual books and magazines since 1903.
