Water Wipes @ Walmart Review/ Giveaway

  How many times have you used a wipe on your baby's bottom or face and it would start turning red?  My kids all have sensitive skins and this has happened many times.  I had a few moms come over for coffee and we all discussed this happening to our children.  I gave all the moms a package of  Water Wipes and let them try a package for a week.  Every mom came back and said how they loved Water Wipes!  Each one said there was no redness, rash or irritated skins on their children.

Rib Roast Rack Cave Tools Review

Cave Tools

 Cave Tools is an awesome company that I have reviewed for several times and all their products have been nothing but the best, so when I was allowed to review the new Rib Roast Rack, I was very excited.
Rib Roast Rack

   This rack is unique because you can cook a chicken, a slab of ribs, a Butt Roast or any other type of meat on it.  The flip side can be used for ears of corn, sausages or even kabobs.  Last week, I cooked a whole Pork Butt Roast and it was so tender.  Usually, I have to cook it in a slow cooker, but I was wanting a smoked, whole roast this time and this rack let me do that.  Last night I cooked Rib Eye Steaks. We turned the rack over and placed steaks between the racks and they came out so juicy and delicious.

Un-AshamedHealing Our Brokeness and Finding Freedom From Shame Review/Giveaway

   I was asked to review the book, "Un-Ashamed" and I agreed, but I truly had no idea what this book would mean to me.  Shame is everywhere and it is very hard to talk about.  But, it is a word, and a feeling that has been around since the beginning of time.  Adam & Eve were very shamed at their displeasing God when they ate from the forbidden tree.  After God punished them from the garden they both noticed they were naked, something that never bothered them before they sinned.  As hurt as God was at them, he still wrapped them in clothing.  Showing us that no matter what we do to shame ourselves God is there to wrap us up in his love and forgiveness.
   I lost my daughter in November in a tragic death, she took her own life.  This left my family and I devastated.  Was I the reason? Did I say something to push her to do it?  I was so ashamed of myself for some of the things I had said that were possibly not the right words and I was ashamed for not truly praying for her to change her ways.  I sometimes still blame myself for her death.  I read some wonderful healing words in this book that made me feel more un-ashamed than I originally did.  I learned that God's grace saved me from my wrongful doings, because I would always pray that she would change and that God would help me through it.  God's grace intervened and removed my shame when he died on that cross 2000 years ago.

Peter and the Wolf in Hollywood on iPhone or iPad Review w/Free Download

  Peter and the Wolf in Hollywood originates from Prokofiev's 1936 children’s classic and it has been re-done by a children's classical orchestra and the story goes along with the music.  I was asked to review this excellant musical story and then to hold a party in honor of the movie.  I must say I have never really listened to classical music before this review and now I know I have been missing out on excellant music and the perfect way to tell a story.
 The story begins when Peter moves from Russia to live with his hippie grandfather who is a gardner to a famous celebrity in Hollywood. The music will guide you along as Peter meets his grandfather and is sort of taken back at his appearance.  This story and most of the voices are read by rock and roll singer -Alice Cooper.

Block Island Organics Suncreen SPF 30 Review/Giveaway

Natural Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 SPF0001

  Well, it's here--Summer!  And, with Summer comes hot, hot weather and sunburns.  My children burn very easily and I am very conscience about skin cancer so, I want to cover them in the best sunscreen available.
  I was able to review for Block Island Organics and I tried out their Sunscreen SPF 30.  This sunscreen  is lightweight, non-greasy and uses no artifical fragrances.  You ladies can use it underneath your makeup and never know it's there.
  Like all Block Island products there are no parabens, sulfates, petrochemicals, phthalates, dyes or artifical fragrances.They use vegan formulas and do not test on animals.
  Block Island is built on the natural  beauty of Block Island, Rhode Island.  It is home to more than 40 endangered or rare species and 40% of open space on the island is protected by conservationists.

    One of the main common effects of UV exposure is sunburn.  Some suspect the causes of Melanoma have a relationship with UV exposure.  This explains why you need a good quality sunscreen with good SPF factors.  I would highly recommend using this product from Block Island.
This sunscreen was good enough to win the 2016 Best Beach and Sport Sunscreen for 3 years in a row.
  I took my children to a water park and I covered them down completely - face, ears, arms, legs and all over very good and even after several hours of water play I never had to re-apply the cream.  We left for home with not a sunburn one.  
  Block Island makes great products from only the best natural ingredients to keep you and your families skin safe and protected from bad UV rays and sunburns which can lead to life threatening diseases.
  I highly recommend you using this sunscreen.  It has a light fragrance and when using it, only use a small pea size at a time, a lot goes a long way. To purchase this and other Block Island products just order online here.
  Would you like to win a bottle of Block Island SPF 30 Sunscreen?  If so please enter my Rafflecopter. Good  Luck!

Sorrow's Joy -- A Book from a Personal Story During the Battle of Gettysburg Review/Giveaway

  It is the Summer of 1863 in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania and Samuel was a boy who had to work for grumpy, old Mr. Pierce as a delivery boy.  Samuel lived with his mother, sister Jennie and 2 brothers.  Money was tight since their dad was in a mental home and Samuel had to work to help make ends meet.  Jennie had been taking care of the home since their sister Georgia was due to give birth at any time and mother had to stay with her to help her out until the baby was born.
 Word began to circulate that the war was on its way to Gettysburg and people were beginning to worry and move.  Samuel had already seen his brother-in-law leave with the Union and Jenny's fiance had joined the Confederacy.  Samuel missed these men badly, but Jenny missed her fiance very much.  She would sit and stare out the windows to watch for him to come home.
  Eventually, Samuel's family had to take in boarders to help with money matters.  The boarders were a woman and her ill son.  The ill son took up as a good friend to Samuel's little brother.

Anchored Press Planner 2016 Review/Giveaway

Anchored Press's Profile Photo

   Anchored Press was kind enough to send me this beautiful 2016 year Planner.  What makes this planner different from others is several reasons. 1) this book is larger than most and it would look beautiful laying on a desk or coffee table  2) It is full of Daily Devotions  3) As you read these devotions make sure you are a "doer"-do as God wants you to.

  Isn't it a beautiful, eye-catching color?  This Planner was designed by a woman named Deana, who was missing out on God's great days of opportunity daily by sleeping late.  One day Deana decided to change her life and to start writing down all the devotions God told her to write.  Suddenly she was craving God's word.
