Indescribable by Louie Giglio #giveaway

Disclosure: I received this book to review. Post contains affiliate links; opinions shared are mine.

Lately my son is completely interested in shows like Bill Nye the Science Guy, Magic School Bus, and basically anything that has a science theme.  He told me that he’s like to be a scientist when he grows up, “but scientists don’t believe in God.”  Wait, WHAT?!  

That’s when I knew that Indescribable: 100 Devotions for Kids About God and Science was going to come in handy. [Read more…]

Ordinary Graces by Lucinda Secrest McDowell Blog Tour and Giveaway

Disclosure: I received this title as part of a book tour. Opinions shared are mine.

Remember when I told  you about Dwelling Places?  The same author, Lucinda Secrest McDowell, takes readers on a journey of the heart in her recently released devotional.  As of the past few years, announcing a “word of the year” has been the big trend for New Year’s Day.  Ordinary Graces takes a similar approach, but makes the word fun last all year ’round.

In 2012 when my daughter was a newborn, my husband and I joined our first small group through church.  It was held at my friend Marsha’s home and we studied the book A Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren.  Our spiritual growth was almost tangible during that book study, but the biggest benefit was our deepened friendships.  I’m glad to see that Rick Warren’s new book, God’s Big Plans for Me storybook Bible, is based on that bestseller.  This will be a great way for me to share those uplifting messages with my kids.

Same Kind of Different As Me movie release #ad #SameKindMovieL3 #giveaway

Disclosure: I was compensated for this post. Opinions shared are mine.

My children don’t usually realize how blessed they are.  Sometimes I wonder if I’ve allowed them to grow up too soft, ill prepared for hardships they might face in the world.  We’re not wealthy or living in the lap of luxury, but we definitely have a comfortable, content life. My husband and I have tried to demonstrate a life of service and faith, but sometimes I wonder….is it enough? Can we make a difference, not just in the lives of our own children, but for the whole of God’s kingdom?  In the movie Same Kind of Different As Me (releases Oct. 20),  an unforgettable true story of forgiveness, love, and friendship celebrates what happens when faith becomes action.  The tremendous talent for this movie includes names like Greg Kinnear, Renée Zellweger, Djimon Hounsou, and Jon Voight.

Jesus Always : 365 Devotions for Kids by Sarah Young

Disclosure: I received this book free for review.  This post contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.  Opinions shared are mine.

During my college years, long devotional workbooks filled with reflection questions and application challenges appealed to me.  It was a time of deep faith and I look back on those days with a longing to get back in that place.  In this season of my life, I prefer short devotionals that give me a target on which to focus for the day.  It feels like an accomplishment when I can start with a moment of prayer or a bit of worship-mindedness.  Even though Jesus Always is meant for a young audience, it’s actually perfect for my morning!

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.
