BabyTime USA Product Review

Its summer time!  More time in the sun means more need for sunscreen! And, if you live in the South, like we do, it means its also time to stock up insect repellent!  These are two of the many reasons that I LOVE BabyTime Products (formerly Episencial).  We've been using their products for years!  Sunscreen, bug repellent, bath wash, lotion, we love it all!

Summer Reading (from Zonderkidz) for You and Your Child

Its summertime!  That means swimming, playing outside, barbeques, and ice cream!  But it can also mean extra time for snuggling and reading with your little ones!  The fabulous folks at Zonderkidz have sent me some of their newest releases to share with you!

The Fourth of July is quickly approaching!  And that means lots of red, white, and blue decorations and patriotism!  God Bless America is a wonderful little board book to help you share your love of this country with your little one! Follow Henry and his family as they travel across the USA and see the Statue of Liberty, Mount Rushmore, Hollywood, and Washington, DC!

"Hope Unfolding: Grace-Filled Truth For The Momma's Heart" Book Review

I really enjoyed "Hope Unfolding," by Becky Thompson.  At first I wasn't so sure I would.  The first chapter was all about how she met and married her husband.  And, although it was interesting, the story seemed to drag a little.  But after that, the book just got better.

"Starter Bible" Book Review

My kiddos love to be read to!  And they love to read!  (Well, the oldest is learning to read like now.  The two youngest are still in the "pretending to read" category. Or, as my oldest says, "reading the pictures." So we love colorful, engaging books.

"The Life Giving Home" Book Review

"Home is a place of ministry.  Redeeming words, thoughts, and actions are shared and taught, the wisdom and instruction of God is passed along, and God's love is offered to all who come under its influence." - Sally Clarkson

This is what I want for my home - for it to be a place of ministry, a place of wisdom and instruction, a place that is full of God's love.  But, honestly, sometimes "life" gets in the way of my plans.  I get overwhelmed with the everyday, mundane tasks of life and forget my mission and my ministry.

"Pressing Pause:100 Quiet Moments For Moms To Meet With Jesus" BookReview

As a mom of three littles, I'm busy.  Some days I'd even used the word "overwhelmed." And its often hard to find time for an extended quiet time.  By that I mean, my quiet time may be an hour long, but it will be broken up into 15 minutes here, then breaking up an argument, changing a diaper, bandaging a skinned knew, cuddling a crying toddler, 10 minutes there, then getting a snack for a hungry baby, finding a kindergartener's lost shoe, cleaning up the apple juice on the floor, etc.  That's why books like "Pressing Pause" are so helpful!

"Loving My Actual Life" Book Review

As a stay-at-home mom/homeschooling mom, sometimes its hard to love my actual life.  I get bogged down in the minutia, overwhelmed by the huge "to-do" list.  So when I saw Alexandra Kuykendall's book, "Loving My Actual Life: An Experiment In Relishing What's Right In Front Of Me," I knew I had to read it.

"Life Verse Creative Journal Set" Book Review

As you've seen before - if you read my blog or follow me on Instagram, I'm a huge fan or Bible journaling!  God loves our creativity!  And He loves when we use it to worship Him and draw closer to Him!  So I was thrilled at the prospect of reviewing B&H Publishers new release, Life Verse Creative Journal.

"Having A Martha Home The Mary Way" Book Review

I'll be honest. I wasn't sure I'd enjoy this book.  Its a book on homemaking/housekeeping and this is an area I struggle with.  I'm not the most disciplined when it comes to house cleaning and chores. But I was pleasantly surprised.  This book is so much more.
