The Tyler Files by Brian Rock A book for Middle Schoolers


  I just reviewed a cute book, perfect for ages 7-10 and it would make a cute stocking stuffer.  The Tyler Files by Brian Rock is a fun book.
  In this first series - #1 Smarty Pants - readers will learn all about Tyler who is a 5th grade student with a case of talking pants!  Yes, one morning his pants just began talking.  Tyler is having a hard enough time trying to fit into school, ward off a bully and he has a secret crush.  So, how in the world is he going to get through the day when his pants keep making smarty remarks and moving his legs where the pants want to go?

365 Bible Answers for Curious Kids Review/Giveaway


  365 Bible Answers for Curious Kids is a book full of questions that are answered about God.  I was amazed at some of the questions that I didn't know the answers to myself, so this book is great for adults as well as children.
  Questions about God, the Bible and Faith are answered in a way that points children to God in a loving way.  This book includes topics such as:  God, time, God's promises, Jesus, the Old Testament, the New Testament, prayer, holidays, Christian seasons and traditions, being a Christian and Eternity.
  One of the questions is: "What is the Trinity?" and the answer is, "who is the Trinity - God, God's son and God's Holy Spirit".  "The Trinity is a way to describe God.   There is more to the answer, where this question is found in the Bible and a prayer at the bottom of the page.
  There are also many "Want to Know More?" cross-referencing at the bottom of some devotions for the child who wants to learn more.

Kutless Alpha/Omega CD Review/ Giveaway

Product Details

  Kutless' newest album, Alpha/Omega is definitely my favorite of this great Christian band.  With a touch of classic rock added to calm, odd fashioned gospel music, this CD is perfect for all ages. This awesome group has been together 17 years with 12  #1 radio hits. 
 Alpha / Omega features a new version of "Strong Tower" and the number one radio hit, "King of My Heart".  Below is the song "Strong Tower":

  
  Each song is a reminder of God in our life and this album displays God in every aspect of our lives.  Jon Micah Sumrall, (a member of the Kutless group) says he feels music can make a difference in people's lives.  He also says the group hears many times from different people how one of their songs impacted their life.  This is why I really love this group and their music. I feel the words to the songs really touch the heart and they help spread the word of God.

  In 2012, Kutless formed End of The Age, (EOTA), which is a non-profit aid that help them spread the word by hosting large, free, outdoor concerts around the globe.  In Belarus, a communist country, 100,000 people heard Kutless and 40,000 committed to Christ!  How can anyone not love a group such as Kutless?  It is proven by their actions that they are in the music making business for more reasons than to be rich or famous.

  Above is the 5 members of the group Kutless.  This is one of their other album covers.

FAMILY HONOR PLATE PAINT KIT

TABLE THYME DISCUSSION CARDS

   I received the sweetest gift for the family to be involved in and some cards for the family to talk about as they paint this Family Honor Plate.  The Family Honor Plate is a set of products to paint a beautiful plate that can be eaten off of after it is painted.  In the middle of the plate it says "Family Honor Plate" and words such as, Love, Joy, Peace, Self- Control and other family words, surround the outside circling the plate.
  The object of painting this plate is as parents discuss the meaning of family and love, children are asked questions from the  Table Thyme Cards.  As they answer questions about themselves and other family members, they will understand good things that remind them of their families to paint on the plate.

Utter Nonsense: Family Edition Game Review



  I love to play games and our family plays a lot of them through the winter months. When it is rainy or snowy outside, we pull out the games some popcorn and family game night begins.  I was very fortunate to review a game titled, "Utter Nonsense : Family Edition".  This game will have you laughing all night.
  The way we play this game is you give everyone, but the judge, 7 cards and you turn over the accent card.  Going clockwise the player will choose one of his cards that goes with the accent card and makes it a funny statement.  This goes on the same way until whoever is appointed judge stops it by saying theirs was the funniest phrase.  The winner of the funniest phrase then becomes the judge and the other judge gets to begin making phrases.

Indescribable Book about God & Science Review/Giveaway

 

   I was recently allowed to review a marvelous book that answers so many questions in the minds of children and adults as well.  Indescribable is a God & Science book written by Pastor and Author Louie Giglio.  Indescribable describes the Majesty of creation with scientific findings.  The pictured illustrated are bright, detailed and beautifully drawn by Nicola Anderson.
  One of the first stories tells of you looking at a blank sheet of paper and then drawing what you wanted to happen onto the paper.  This is how God saw the blank existence and he made everything to become real and fall into place as it should be.  Psalm 19:1 "The Heavens tell the glory of God. And the skies announce what his hands have made."
  There are 100 devotions about God and Science.  On each Devotions page there will also be a, "Be Amazed" which are fascinating facts, hands-on-activity, and a closing prayer.  
It will really holds your attenion!

Julie Elias - "A Girl Like Me" CD Review/ Giveaway

Picture

   A few years ago Julie Elias was acting with small parts in shows such as, "Grey's Anatomy" and "CSI:NY" and even some good roles in bigger movies.  But, deep inside Julie knew something was missing.  Julie started praying to God for his direction in her life.  She even stated she would be obedient and wait for whatever he wanted her to do in her life.
  Some people are always reminded that they are not good enough and feel guilty because they are not grateful for all they have. But Julie was reminded that God still loves us and we are all good enough.
The title song is about how despite our shortcomings, "a girl like me" is still very worthy of God's love.  This is the exact name of the CD-  Julie Elias- "A Girl Like Me".

THE STAR MOVIE REVIEW: A FILM FOR EVERY MEMBER OF THE FAMILY Written by Deanna Evens

*This is a review post written by Deanna Evens. I have her permission to share her review about the movie, The Star. 

I was asked recently if I’d like to review THE STAR movie, based off of the very first Christmas, from the animal’s perspective surrounding Christ’s birth. This was something I had never done before but was excited about doing.
Wow and Wow! This film has it all from start to finish you will be mesmerized by its characters, colors and the story surrounding the Nativity. When I finished screening the movie, I was loving it! The story of Bo the Donkey along with Mary and Joseph flooded my heart with all kinds of emotion. I watched the film three times with the same reaction after each viewing! Bring in the amazing music and singing of Mariah Carey’s title track song for The Star, you have a new playlist and movie for Christmas!

  Pictured above is Hero the Puppy from the Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation.  This ALSF supports childhood cancer through sales and donations.  Hero will bring a smile and hope to everyone, sick or well, but he really lights up the eyes of a child with cancer.

  Alex's lemonade stand began with a little girl named Alex who was battling cancer since before her 1st birthday.  When Alex was 4 she told her parents she wanted to set up a lemonade stand in their front yard to raise money to give the Dr.'s to help them find a cure for cancer.  She raised $2,000. in one day.  Alex continued to set up the lemonade stand every year, asking that others raise money as well to donate to cancer.
