Shaklee Christmas Sale

Keep in mind this Christmas shopping season... YOU, the customer, are our everything! Spending $100 at Walmart or another retail or department store during the holidays won't make a difference to anyone; but spending $100 through a home business owner for Christmas means our business can continue, it provides for our families, helps us meet our personal goals, and helps us continue to do what we love without using harsh sales techniques. The big stores will not care about you the way we will because unfortunately, you don't mean that much to them. You mean the world to me!!!

Aluminum Giftware

Every summer, you can find the hubby and I at a few tractor shows - while he loves all the tractors, after an hour or so, I get restless (I like tractors, but after awhile the details start to blend) and go walk the flea markets!

Well, I happened to see a booth by American Forging (Unique, American Made, Hand Forged Aluminum Giftware with anvil and hammer) this summer - I loved the idea of taking aluminum cans and recycling them into something so neat!

The Cornucopia caught my eye - and my handsome Hubby, being the sweet man that he is, bought me the Cornucopia Hors D'oeurve Tray!

 I was thrilled! I keep it on my china hutch and proudly show it off to all my guests!

Well, a few months ago, I stumbled across their Facebook page and entered to win a few of their giveaways...... guess what?? I won a Dragonfly Ornament (which I gave to my oldest daughter and now she proudly shows it off.

And.... it gets better...... I also won a colored Cornucopia Hors D'oeurve Tray!!! Ok, so I was officially excited! I told hubby I should give one away as a gift, but couldn't decide which one I liked the most - his reply? Can't we keep them both? Haha

They have many other designs at their website.

Book Review - The Grace of God by Andy Stanley

The Grace of God by Andy Stanley 
Rating: 3 Stars 

Grace. We all need it. Grace is God pouring out on us what we don't deserve.

When we sin we deserve nothing less than punishment from God, yet instead He came in the form of His Son to take the punishment for us. This was the ultimate show of God's grace, and it is given to us freely. Grace is one of the greatest gifts in the world.

Andy Stanley traces the theme of God's grace throughout the Bible. He begins with Genesis and ends with the Great Commission. He shows us God's grace through the lives of many men and women in the Bible, who were affected when God extended grace to them. He chooses Bible characters with various backgrounds, that correspond to the various backgrounds and baggage that men and women of today might experience. 

He tells the Bible stories as if you were telling a story to a friend, rather than quoting them from the Bible, which gives readers a fresh perspective. But it also allows Stanley to make speculation about what the characters might have been thinking or feeling. Although this can make us think outside the box – I’d still encourage readers to read the stories straight from the Bible and draw their own conclusion. 

The book is broken into 13 chapters all ending in "by Grace". 

I found myself getting bored - this book didn’t challenge me.

Overall – it was good, but not great!

Book Review - Bible Stories for Preschoolers

Designed by: Vocatio Publishers 
Author: Monika Kustra 
Illustrator: Andrzej Chalecki 
Adapted by: Betty Free Swanberg
Rating: 5 Stars

Let me start by saying – this is by far the very best kids Bible story book I have ever seen! 

All 49 Bible stories are fully detailed in bright, vibrant colored illustrations done by Andrzej Chalecki. Kids are so visual at this age and will love the fun, colorful, simple illustrations. 

I love the fact that that each story is not limited to one page like most Children's Bibles are. By making the stories span 4- 7 pages, the author is not rushing through the story. She includes interactions in the text such as, "Close your eyes. Now, what do you see? You don't see anything, do you? Everything is dark." My kids really liked being able to interact with the story. 

My ten year old loves to read this book to her four year old brother – and they enjoy doing the activities together! 

Another great feature of this Bible Story book, are the pages that follow the story titled "Family Time". 

The Family Time pages are activities written to engage the whole family. Kids not only have the opportunity to hear the story, but to apply the story in a way they'll understand. 

-The "Talk" sections gives the parent or reader a few questions to discuss with the child to help them remember and apply the story. -The "Do" section is an activity (make a craft, eat something etc.) that reviews the message of the story. 

-And the "Remember" section shares a Bible verse that relates to the lesson learned and helps kids remember scripture. 

This is a book I would strongly recommend to any parent, grandparent, aunt/uncle, or anyone who has, or comes into contact, or even knows a little one between the ages of two and ten! 

The book is a nice size too, not too big, not too small - overall, this book is beautifully put together inside and out!

The stories are engaging and the pictures are memorable. Plus, I guarantee the family time section will make your family devotions more memorable, less prep and lots of fun!
