    Could anyone check my text?It isn't a essay, I am practicing with small question.
    I thanks in advanced.

    What do you do in your spare time?

    I try to have a balanced life but at moment my priority is spend time with my two kids. When I not with them, I manage my free time to work out, cook my own food (when is possible), enjoy my girlfriend, read a good book, meet with my friends to chart, go to church, and update my posts on Face Book and LinkedIn. Lately I have been teaching my kids to ride bicycle and read wonderful book ``The Power of Now``.

    I'm confused by your last sentence. Have you been teaching your kids to ride their bikes and you have also been reading a very good book? Or have you been teaching your kids to ride their bikes and also teaching them to read a very good book? It's ambiguous.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    First of all thanks, I would like to thank you for taking time to look my text. I realy appreciate. In the last sentence, what I mean is the first one. I have been teaching my kids to ride their bikes and I also been reading a very good book called ``The Power of Now``.

    To avoid ambiguity then, swap the two pieces of information over.

    Lately, I've been reading a great book called "XXXX" and teaching my kids to ride a bike.
