  Chasing Grace is a Christian / Thriller type of movie but, Christians aren't the only one's to like it.  It deals with families, forgiveness, love, pain and betrayal.  Based on true events, this powerful story will truly have you thinking about life and what it means.

"Bearing Witness" Book of Martyrs for Christ Review/Giveaway






   For Centuries, Christians have been persecuted for following Jesus Christ.  They will die before renouncing their faith.  These people are called Martyrs which is defined as: a person who willingly suffers death rather than renounce his or her religion.  In this book,  Bearing Witness,  many never wavered when asked to stop worshiping their God and follow other pagan Gods.  Stephen was stoned to death for his love and faith in Christ.  There was Saul who was just standing by holding coats for the men, who would, in the end stone him to death.
   One of my favorite tales is of  Perpetua who was a 22 year old woman that came to learn with some other new, young believers when along came the Roman authorities and asked "what is your name?"  Perpetua answered back, "Christian".  This made the soldiers very angry and Perpetua and her friends were imprisoned for refusing to worship the empire’s deities.

"The League and the Lantern " Book Review/Giveaway



  First, let me say, this book is amazing!  If your children like Harry Potter or The Lion and the Wardrobe - they will definitely love this book.  The League and the Lantern is filled with adventure from the first chapter.  I love that this book includes children of different races and it shows a boy can become best friends with a girl as easy as he can befriend another boy.  I love how it helps a child understand that nothing is wrong with being different and that everyone makes mistakes.
  The League and the Lantern is a really fun book to read for the middle school ages. It’s about a young boy named Jake Herndon who is ready for seventh grade, but things aren’t working out for him.  After an embarrassing disaster with sixth grade, he hopes this new school he is going to provide him with a fresh start. When he arrives at the Museum of Science and Industry for the school sleep-over, Jake makes two new friends, TJ McDonald and Lucy Garcia.

Hamburger Press With Built in Dimpler-from Cave Tools Review

Hamburger Press with Built in Dimpler
   Cave Tools has another great product - the Hamburger Press with built in Dimpler.  I love that this product is made from silicone.  The silicone is so easy to work with.  I just placed a large ball of meat over the square and added the top of the silicone lid which had the dimpler in it, and I kept flattening out each square of meat.  When I took the top lid off and there they were - perfectly squared meat patties.  Any of the excess meat I just picked it all back up and added it back in the bowl for the next batch of patties.

The Hospital Box Review

 
 

  Recently I received the most unique product for review - The Hospital Box.  This box is perfect to put different items into and give to a sick person who is in the hospital. Everything in this box is simple to work with.  There are 3 cotton drawstring pouches, the feel better box and (21 )3-D stickers.  The stickers are so cute, they are bright colors, 3D and actually look like a bandage.  Some of the stickers are hearts.  Use these to attach a letter, photo, card or whatever you want to give to the patient.  Just attach it to the outside of the box or on the lid.

LatchPal Review/Giveaway

 
 
 A  LatchPal is a mom invented, for moms, clip for when you are breastfeeding your baby.  I wish this would of been around when I was nursing my babies.  My shirt was always falling down in their little faces.  This is the greatest invention since sliced bread to a breastfeeding mom because now you have both hands to help hold baby's head in place and the other hand to hold onto their bodies. 
 The LatchPal can also double as a pacifier holder or you could link your key ring on it so they don't get lost.

ApparelnBags Messenger Bag Review


  ApparelnBags carries a wide variety of named brand apparel and merchandise.  With over 100 brands and 3000,000 SKU's, they provide the customer with the best variety of merchandise available and prices that are 20-50% less than MSRP all year long.
 I have been looking for a bag for my grandson to carry that would  hold his computer, but also has room to hold his papers and pens.  Everywhere I looked the bags were very expensive or not big enough.  Luckily, I was asked to review for ApparelnBags for one of their products.  
  ApparelnBags has so many products!  I was truly amazed.  I started looking through all the bags they carried and I couldnt believe there were so many different styles, sizes and prices.  There were bags that went over your shoulder, backpack bags, big tote bags and more.  I finally found the perfect bag - the Gemline Persuit Computor Messenger Bag. Gemline Bags take the lead in the latest bags on the market.  You can order this bag and ApparelnBags will embroidery on it for you.  I wish I would have done this, but I didn't read all the way down on the description,  it would sure make a great gift. With graduation coming up, this would be perfect to give and have their name monogrammed on the front.
