The Lorax-2-WEBMy Thoughts: We were sent the Free & Clear training pants. Now our home we are strictly papmers diapers and huggies pull-ups buyers, but we gave it a go anyway. Now we are not what some people call diaper snobs its just that all of the other brand tend to give my little ones rashes. No kidding every single brand out there, not sure why but they do.
Now back to the Free & Clear training pants -  I have to say I love that they held up very well (No leaks!) and didn’t give my little guy a rash. Now he was a bit disappointed that they didn’t have a car design on them like the pull-ups but after reading the book provided with the training pants Dr. Seuss’ “The Lorax” he was thrilled to wear them.
Our home had already switched over to using Seventh Generation Cleaning supplies about a year ago and I’m happy to say we will give switching over to the Free & Clear diaper line for our future children, as well as for our little guy still in training pants, some thought.
The Seventh Generation Diapers prize pack will contain:
  • One package of new Seventh Generation Free & Clear diaper product

Book Review: Beauty for Ashes By Dorothy Love


Book Description": She’s a beautiful young widow. He’s a Southern gentleman with a thirst for adventure. Both need a place to call home.

After losing her husband in the Civil War, Carrie Daly is scared she will never have the family she longs for. Eligible bachelors are scarce in Hickory Ridge, Tennessee, but Carrie Daly has found love. Not the weak-in-the-knees kind, but something practical. Still, she isn't quite ready to set a wedding date with Nate Chastain.

Griff Rutledge is a former member of Charleston society, but has been estranged from his family for years. He’s determined to remain unattached, never settling in one place for too long. But when asked to train a Thoroughbred for an upcoming race in Hickory Ridge, he decides to stay awhile.

Despite objections from the townsfolk, and her fear that true happiness has eluded her, Carrie is drawn to Griff's kindness and charm. It will take a leap of faith for them to open their hearts and claim God's promise to trade beauty for ashes.

More about Dorothy Love: An accomplished author in the secular market, Dorothy Love makes her inspirational fiction debut with Beyond All Measure, the first novel in the Hickory Ridge series of historicals set in her native South. Her well-researched, heartwarming stories of family, faith and friendship reflect her passion for discovering the histories of ordinary people who accomplished extraordinary things and set her apart as an author of Southern history with heart.

My Thoughts: I’m a sucker for romance and this book doesn’t disappoint! With the first lines she sucks you into the setting so deeply you would think your actually there! As with most romance novels the ending is predictable but you don’t care. Your sitting at the edge of your seat and swooning at the love the couple has for each other, and your dreaming right along with them about their happily ever after. This novel has just enough twists, turns and turmoil to make you catch your breath and keep you engaged.

I enjoyed this book so much that I plan on picking up her other book Beyond All Measure as soon as I can.

Book Review: The Voice New Testament: Revised & Updated

_225_350_Book.525.coverThe Voice™  Bible translation is a faithful dynamic translation of the Scriptures done as a collage of compelling narratives, poetry, song, truth, and wisdom. The Voice calls the reader to step into the whole story of Scripture and experience the joy and wonder of God's revelation. Created for and by a church in great transition, The Voice uniquely represents collaboration among scholars, pastors, writers, musicians, poets, and other artists, giving great attention to the beauty of the narrative. The heart of The Voice is retelling the story of the Bible in a form as fluid as modern literary works yet remaining painstakingly true to the original manuscripts. This translation promotes the public reading of longer sections of Scripture-followed by thoughtful engagement with the biblical narrative in its richness and fullness and dramatic flow.

This is an updated and revised version of the New Testament edition, now at an even more affordable price.

Features include:

  • Italicized information added to help contemporary readers understand what the original readers would have known intuitively
  • In-text commentary notes include cultural, historical, theological, or devotional thoughts
  • Screenplay format, ideal for public readings and group studies
  • Book introductions

READ a chapter for yourself -

My Thoughts: I’m always looking for new ways to read the Bible. Every Christian knows you need to read the Bible but I, like most I’m sure, find it difficult to read. I’ve tired and own many different versions, ‘The Message’, NIV, contemporary English version, ESV, NRSV, to name a few. I liked many of them but I still found it hard to just sit down and read through a whole book. With The Voice, it almost reads like a novel and I can read one of those in under a day. Its amazing how the mind works, you find it difficult read something that if worded differently could be so simple to read. And that’s what the authors of The Voice did. They took the Bible and made it flow more like normal conversation. Some times it reads like a script and other times like a poetry book. Personally I think what makes is such a good book/Bible is the general flow of the passages.

And most of all I love how it made me pick up my NIV and compare as I read along. I never would have thought I ‘d be reading the Bible all the way through, and enjoying it! Sure its been on my new years resolution list for as long as I can remember but I never really made it past the first month of trying. This was just the new testament and I cant wait to buy The Voice Bible: Step Into the Story of Scripture and read the whole Bible along with it!

Book Review: The Perfect Love by Ruth Myers

About This Book: WHERE CAN YOU FIND THE KIND OF LOVE YOU TRULY NEED? “If we want real love, ideal love, limitless love, God’s heart is where to find it. It’s the only love big enough to meet the God-sized needs of your life.” --Ruth Myers
Most people–even those with a deep faith–fail to really grasp the incredibly deep and passionate love God has for them. Yet, while God’s love for us is beyond description, it doesn’t have to be beyond our experience.
In The Perfect Love, Ruth Myers helps uncover the surprising, quiet clues and expressions in Scripture of just how much God loves you. With the expressions of prayer and praise at the end of each chapter, you’ll learn to experience God’s love more deeply and return it more fully in worship. And you’ll welcome a new sense of
security, honor, and significance that comes from experiencing how God’s love — The Perfect Love–truly meets your deepest needs. (taken from - waterbrook multnomah publishing)

To find out more about the author and other books by Ruth Myers: Visit HERE!

My Thoughts: I was excited to read this book because in college, I had the pleasure of reading different book about God’s love for you called ‘Falling in Love with Jesus’. I learned so much from that one and used it as a comparison point when reading this one. I have to say I was rather disappointed. Although the topic of this book was great it really wasn’t a good read. I found it hard to be engaged in what the author was saying. It tries to be a devotional book which isn’t a bad thing, just not what I think the Author was trying to do. Unfortunately, I found this book extremely difficult to get into. I did stick it out and finish the book and I would like to add that although the books starts off slow and a bit boring it does get slightly more exciting and fun to read towards the end, but not enough for me to want to read it again. One aspect of this book that I liked is how she applied scripture to her experiences in her life to point out God perfect love for us. I Wouldn’t say I wont recommend this books but its defiantly one you have to be seeking not just one to pick up and read on a whim.

"I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review."



To go along with the Dulce de Leche Cheerios giveaway I wanted to share with you a few fun ways to enjoy this new cereal!
If you try any of recipes please come back here and share! I plan to make a few and post our experiences soon.
