The In-Between Place book review and giveaway

What is the in-between place? Who lives there?  Do you like it there? Do you want to get out of there?

I live in that place.  I have been there for awhile. Due to many unforseen circumstances but, it's not where i want to be.    

I think all you have to do is admit what you dont like the in-between place then work towards getting out of it.  

I am currently working towards a better me. Working towards finding that happy place. Trying to be content, stable, productive and at peace.  I realize it's not a quick process but, I also realize it has to be done and it will eventually be achieved.

I have found a book to guide me. To make me stronger, to help me along the way.  There's something about reading about the path of someone else and seeing them get out the other side.

Chapters titled: Embrace Belonging  and Be Brave Enough To Ask Hard Questions And Accept The Truth help to encourage me through this book.

The author breaks down biblical stories of women who crossed the path of Jesus.  Women who were not accepted by their community but whom were good enough to be spoke to by Jesus.

This shows even in our darkest hour or the period of time we doubt ourselves that we are not alone.

Take this moment to check out this book.  Purchase a copy for yourself and try to win one here!! This is the perfect book to have on your shelf and share with your friends.

Take the first step and the rest falls in place.  I received this book complimentary for review purposes and all opinions are my own!

Take Back Your Life (giveaway and review)

  I don’t really understand myself, for I want to do what is right, but I don’t do it. Instead, I do what I hate. Romans 7:15 NLT

  Hey, did you know God doesn't love you more or less based on the good or bad days you have? Im not sure if i really knew this or not. Maybe somedays i knew but, i think for the most part everyday that I was hard on myself i assumed he was disappointed in me as well. I never blamed him for my behavior, bad luck or poor judgments.
I couldn't get out of the slump either. Until i changed my lifestyle.

  A lifestyle change is a slow process. I kept at it everyday slowly working on my change. I set goals for the present and future. I woke up everyday and kept the same routine. I went to work, took care of my family and went to bed. This was all i knew. I then was presented with the perfect book to review!

I am Brave ( book review and giveaway)

  I appreciate a good, motivating book for myself.  One I can look at for inspiration, answers and even jot notes in.  A book I can come back to and see how I have grown as a person and grown in my faith.  I was extremely excited to be given the opportunity to provide my daughter with an age appropriate book offering her the same opportunity.

  I am Brave by Thomas Nelson is a book geared to 8-12 year old girls.  Its a great book that helps girls growing in their faith and following God.  This book encourages the reader with various prompts to include questions and quizzes.  A little food for thought in determining a better situation, another perspective or an end result of FUN.

  There is a Brave Girl series which I was only aware of after this book but, all the girls are introduced in this book and a picture of them on each page.  After reading about all of them you feel a little more connected and familiar with the characters as they grace the pages throughout the book.

  My daughter found this book to be a great addition to her book collection.  She is able to read and follow the directions.  She is leaving her mark on the pages as she answers them according to her at the present time.  It will be fun to look back on when shes older.

 The pages also contain verses and prayers and she is able to reflect on this during her day.  This book provides her with a window of positive reinforcement!

  This book is available for purchase on Amazon here.  Perfect for a holiday gift, birthday or just because!

 Of course purchasing the book is a given after you have tried your luck with the giveaway here!  If you win just think of it as 2 for the price of 1!

  I was provided this book complimentary for review purposes but all opinions and comments are my own.

52 Uncommon Family Adventures and a giveaway

    Where is adventure?

   Once you have kids keeping them happy and entertained is part of life.  At least until they get older and think your not cool anymore or find ways to entertain their selves.

  I can't keep mine entertained everyday.  Some days I run out of time or fall short of what I really wanted to achieve for the day.  52 Uncommon Family Adventures by Randy Southern makes my idea planning so much easier.

   This book has exactly 52 adventures to tackle or complete with your family.  The adventures already planned and that's half the battle.

 In the book each adventure has a key.  You will know the time frame, cost, location and love language associated.  Love language is different for everyone and the sooner you know what works for your family and close friends the easier all adventures will be to pull off.

  The adventures range from easy such as writing and passing out thank you cards to more intricate ones like the adventure called Something Old.  In Something Old the family tries to recreate an old photo to include: hair and clothes style!

  One of the benefits of this book is also the ease of reading it. 

My daughter enjoyed looking up adventures and planning for our future entertainment!

  We have enjoyed hide and seek so far

as well as pillow fighting!

Each planned adventure includes instructions on how to get ready, the directions specific to that adventure, a time to engage more with specific question and answers providing more thought into the adventure, a devotions section pertaining to a bible story and relatable adventure and lastly language of the day aiming specifically for someone who could appreciate the end result of the adventure more.

Now that you know the ins and outs of this book enter the giveaway here!  Of course your super excited about getting busy with your family right away so pick up your copy here!

I am grateful and thankful to have been given this book for review purposes.  Its a great addition to my home library and its a book we will be able to pick up years from now and continue to appreciate it.  All opinions and comments are based solely on my own experiences.

The Tiny Truths (book review and giveaway)

  Once upon a time there was a story.  A story that is not easy to read as a child but, just as important and holds great stories and words of wisdom that a child too should read and hear about.  The Tiny Truths by Joanna Rivard and Tim Penner is that such book. 

 This book is an easy to read condensed bible for kids.  It offers great and fun illustrations as well as stories we grew up listening to as a child.  This book is over 200 pages in length but includes the Old and New Testament.

What was your favorite story as a child?  

The snake and the apple?

The ark?

How big was that fish?

The story of Jesus?

All these stories and more are included in this illustrated bible.  The pictures are so fun and inviting for children.  This bible was an easy read for my child.  She appreciates being able to grab a book, find a corner and read to herself.  She also loves when she hears a familiar story at church; one that's shes already read or is familiar with.

Now is your chance for this book to become part of your home collection.  Enter the giveaway here!
