Coding and Computers paperback book #giveaway US only – ends 10/26

Disclosure: I received this book free from Parragon Books. Post contains my Amazon affiliate link; if you make a purchase, I may earn a commission. Opinions shared are mine.

When I was a teenager, my dad tried to convince me to consider computer programming as a career.  It was around the time that dot matrix printers were just coming out on the market….computers were so new that we were in the minority, having one at his house!  Although I’ve never been quite tech-savvy enough to really be good at a computer or coding career, I have to admit that Dad was right.  It would have been a real up-and-coming job for a woman in the 1990s!  These days, Coding and Computers are fun hobbies for kids to learn.  The skills are even taught in schools as part of the STREAM initiative.  Get a head start on those concepts with a workbook like this!  [Read more…]

Easy Pumpkin Carving book #giveaway ends 10/25 US

We love finding the perfect pumpkins for our front porch, but I’m not so skilled at pumpkin carving. The kids are used to drawing on our pumpkins, or even adding stickers to them. I’ve been known to glue candy to our pumpkins, too….but again, we’re not known for having the most creatively carved gourds on the street. When Fox Chapel Publishing reached out and asked if I would review Easy Pumpkin Carving, it seemed like the perfect chance to learn something new!  Disclosure: I received the book free; post contains affiliate links.

Little Wolf’s Book of Badness book + DVD #WonderFALL #giveaway ends 10/15 US


Disclosure: I am an NCircle Entertainment ambassador and received this DVD for free. Opinions shared are mine. 

Kids love to hear stories about characters who do things completely against the grain.  Junie B. Jones, Dennis the Menace, and Heinz Doofenshmirtz are flawed yet lovable.  Little Wolf fits the bill in the opposite way…..in his world, he’s supposed to be bad (like his Uncle, BigBad) but he’s actually GOOD.  What’s a wolf to do?

Savings for a fun day at The Island in Pigeon Forge, TN #TheIslandPF

So, when we got discounted tickets for the 7D ride at The Island in Pigeon Forge, I had NO IDEA about the other rides that were just around the corner. It was our first time going there, but I just hadn’t researched it at all.  We didn’t have time to check out the rides, so we promised the kids we’d go back the next day when we had more time.  My son was especially interested in the ropes course!

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…]
