The Action Storybook Bible + Kindle #Giveaway

As I’ve said before, the kids and I have a bit of a trek to school/work every day. We spend about an hour in the car together.  We use that time to chat and discuss all things big and small.  Several times a week, we listen to an audiobook.  My kids love The Action Bible because it’s completely unlike the other children’s Bibles they’ve read before.  This one is exciting and sometimes shocking.  I was excited to get The Action Storybook Bible from Litfuse because we enjoyed The Action Bible so much. Opinions shared are mine.

Super Hero Kids Contest #Giveaway with David C Cook

Disclosure: I am posting as part of a blog tour. Opinions shared are mine.

My kids are HUGE into fandoms.  They love talking about characters from games and books.  Sometimes they also role play, a fun game of pretend that I remember playing as a child.  My son is a big fan of comic books in particular, and he really enjoys drawing.  The Super Hero Kids contest is perfect for him!

Does your child love comic books and super heroes?  If so, here’s a chance for you to make your child’s dream come true.  He (or she!) could be illustrated as a super hero!  This contest is in partnership with the Action Storybook Bible which my children LOVE to listen to in the car.  I bought it for around $20 a couple of years ago, and they listen to it all the time.  It’s been a fun way to learn about Bible stories, and it’s very different than the typical Sunday School class story!  [Read more…]

Night Night book series at Family Night – Ovation Brands Restaurants

I’ve been blessed to partner with many wonderful companies in my 7 years of blogging.  Being a Tommy Nelson mommy blogger opened my eyes to the wonderful world of faith-based books for little ones.  While Ryan’s has always been a favorite restaurant of ours (even before the kids), it’s at the top of our list since I’ve worked on many campaigns with Ovation Brands.  What a thrill to share the newest Family Night promotion with you — this time, it includes BOTH of these fabulous brands!  As always, opinions shared here are mine, and I received product/gifts for posting.

My Daughter’s Legacy by Mindy Starns Clark & Leslie Gould

Disclosure: I received this book for review; opinions shared are mine.

I’ve always loved the written word.  My earliest memories include sitting in our family’s huge papasan chair, snuggled in the soft cushions, reading The Poky Little Puppy with my mom.  When I learned to read, it was like windows to the world opened!  I’ve experienced some losses in the past year, with the passing of both my father and grandfather.  They each left behind a brief but precious record of their lives in journal form.  Though the journals weren’t completed, it was nice to hear just a little bit from these two men who helped me grow up.  It’s a written document that creates a legacy.

In the book My Daughter’s Legacy by Mindy Starns Clark and Leslie Gould, the written word becomes a powerful way to access the past.   [Read more…]

A Letter from Lancaster County by Kate Lloyd book review

Disclosure: I received this book from Litfuse group. Opinions shared are mine.

Family dynamics are a tricky matter.  Everyone has “that person” in their family…unless they are “that person.”   It was something I didn’t realize until adulthood.   As a child, I was used to covering family secrets and hiding what was going on at home.  It was normal to give vague answers when someone asked about my dad or brother.  Even now, I don’t like to visit my home state of Kentucky because of the bad memories it brings.  In the book A Letter from Lancaster County, author Kate Lloyd touches on the tender relationships that sometimes haven’t healed, even after years and years.

God Loves Mommy and Daddy and Me #giveaway ends 7/20

Disclosure: I received these books from Tommy Mommy. Opinions shared are mine.

One of the deepest desires of my heart = my children will know God loves them with an unconditional, eternal kind of love.   It’s a lesson I’m still learning myself, and I long to help my children understand it.  Even from a young age, children test the boundaries of love.  Have you seen it?  Perhaps you’ve experienced that, or maybe you’ve been the one to toe the line.   [Read more…]
