"Altar Egos" on DVD Review/Giveaway

  " Altar Egos " is a new family movie due out from Home Entertainment for sale on 9/5.  This movie is perfect for all families, it will make you laugh and then some parts make you feel like you want to cry.  I was able to review this film early and to give my readers an exclusive glimpse at it also (below).  A Dove Foundation, Dove Faith Friendly movie, is safe for all ages.
  When Pastor John wants simple changes in the church, such as new paint in the children's classes, he is shut down quickly by the church board of directors and more quickly by Mary Margaret, a lady with a deep grudge against Pastor John.  Nothing he does seems right and he is always compared to the former Pastor of the church, John's dad.

CrossFlix Christian Television - Try to Win a 1 Year Free Subscription Review/Giveaway

  Are you tired of having your family watch horrible, trashy, vulgar and filthy shows on the movie channels you pay for monthly?  Well, as Christians my family has really been deeply concerned with the sexual innuendo these movies keep passing on as "big hits" and trying to draw our children into watching.
  I was so lucky to have Front Gate Media allow me to offer my blog and one of my lucky readers a chance for a 1 year free subscription to Cr0ssfl!x !  The movies there are the best in faith oriented entertainment.  You can see movies such as "Like A Country Song", by Billy Ray Cyrus, "Revive Us" with Kirk Cameron, "Gallows Road" with Kevin Sorbo.  Watch hundreds of documentaries and their kid selection of movies are amazing: Shirley Temple movies, Lassie movies and "A Dog For Christmas" are just a few.  These oldies are so good for children to be able to see the clean and decent movies we adults grew up watching.

Nichole Nordeman "Every Mile Mattered" CD Review/Giveaway


  If you haven't heard Nichole Nordeman sing, you definitely need to.  Nichole found herself asking the same question David asked God, " Where can I go from your spirit?  Where can I flee from your presence" Psalms 139.  David was good at  running from God and Nichole had become just like David. She was raised in church, in youth groups, mission trips and she only really found God behind the piano.  Soon, Nichole became friends with people who didn't act very Godly and she was sneaking in smelling of liquor and tobacco.  Nichole tried to write songs and she could feel Jesus sitting right beside her on the piano bench, but she still wasn't complete, she was still running and waiting on God to catch her.  Finally, Nichole realized all she had to do was say "yes" to God's invitation and like David, there was no need to run, she just excepted God and so her life fully began.

Birds Eye Vegetables New "Veggie Made" - Teriyaki Broccoli

   I was recently asked to work with Birds Eye's new Veggie Made products and I was so excited because everyone knows Birds Eye is #1 in frozen vegetables.  I chose the new Teriyaki Broccoli and WOW! was it delicious!  I decided to make a meal with this veggie, something you could eat as a "veggie bowl".  I used the delicious Teriyaki Broccoli, Noodles (Garden Rotini) and Ranch Dressing.
First - I cooked the Garden Rotini noodles, I chose these because they are brightly colored and oh so good. Then - I placed my Veggie Made Teriyaki Broccoli in the microwave for 6 minutes.  This broccoli tasted so great when it was done, I almost didn't want to use it in a recipe, I wanted to eat it right out of the bag.  Last  - After the broccoli and the noodles were done I let them cool and then tossed them together in a bowl with Ranch Dressing.

Pigtail Food Flippers from Cave Tools Review

  BBQ Tools - Cave Tools
 Want a way to flip your food without having to get burned or popped by grease in the process? Well, if so, then you need to get a set of Pigtail Food Flippers from Cave Tools.  I love these flippers.  No more having to stab a steak and let the juices out, because these pigtails just easily flip foods over.
  Pigtail Flippers are great for turning over a full set of ribs, pork chops, chicken and even veggies off the grill.
  Use the flipper inside the kitchen and you can flip bacon from a little further back because of the longer handle and not get popped from bacon grease any more.  Turn roasts and chickens over with ease in a crock pot.

"Birthrights" a book by J. Kyle McNeal Review


  "Birthrights" is a book of fantasy and fiction.  Written by J. Kyle McNeal, this book tells the lives of 2 young men, growing up in separate levels of life, but both seeking the same thing - their own identity from their heritages.
  Wyam is a grandson of ArWyam who was the leader of the Reform for the Council of Truth, but ended up being beheaded by his friend, Ather Sandoval.  So, with the fall of his grandfather all Wyam has known is life in the slums of RatsNest.  In this story you will see that all children, when they reach a certain age, leave their families and are taken on by others to teach them new lives. Some end up in the army, some become apprentices and so forth, it all depends on who seeks out to take the child.  Wyam is only 16, and he has prepared himself to go into the army, but bounty-hunter/hit-man, Stern Sandoval chooses Wyam to be his apprentice.  This is a slap in the face to Wyam, since this is the son of the man who killed his grandfather.  Wyam decides to go, learn the trade, and as soon as possible get away and make a new life for himself.  Things don't go as Wyam ever plans.  Stern has Wyam train with another seeker - Kutan.  Wyam's life is soon full of betrayal,  dealing with death, heart-ache and more.
