Review: Philosophy - Amazing Grace


Recently, I was fortunate enough to get to try Philosophy - Amazing Grace Firming Body Emulsion and the Shampoo, Bath & Shower Gel.  First, the smell...divine! Absolutely divine.  Relaxing. Rejuvenating. Just luxourious scent.

Over the weeks I used these, I noticed my skin changing.
Subtly at first, then one day I took a shower and noticed how much better my skin looked and felt.  It felt soft yet young.  Not that I'm old...mid 40's isn't old...right? Right?!

Ahem, I digress.
Since going through my samples, I have actually purchased full size bottles.
I've become addicted to this brand.  I can't get enough of it.
Even my son tells me I smell pretty and don't look to bad...you know, for a mom!

This is definitely an item I hope to find in my stocking this year.

What about you?
Do you have a favorite Philosophy scent? Item?
Let me know in the comments so I can try it!!!

Review & Giveaway: Faith of Our Fathers DVD Ends 11/17

With Veterans Day being tomorrow, I thought it was fitting to give you my review of "Faith of Our Fathers" dvd.



As the daughter of a Vietnam Vet, this movie holds a special place for me.  I am fortunate enough, that my day is alive and he made it home from Vietnam.  Sadly, a lot of men didn't make it home, leaving many children (and spouses) without a father.

This is the story of two of those children.
I watched this movie and while a bit slow to progress, the story of their journey is what piques your interest.  I wanted to see both of them succeed in completely the trip to see the men have closure.  The movie has humor, tension and a great message for all.  I highly recommend watching it as a family.  In my personal opinion, I feel it doesn't need to be PG-13 but then again, I blog, not rate movies.

Here is a bit about the movie:

John Paul and Wayne are two young men in search of their fathers.  Problem is...their fathers have been dead for 25 years.  Eddie and Steven are two young men in search of their sons...whom they've never met.  In 1969, Eddie and Steven are with their squad deep in the jungle of Vietnam on a five-day mission to retrieve fallen comrades.  They write letters to their wives, often mentioning their love for their sons, one, who is an infant and one yet to be born.  In 1994, John Paul and Wayne go on a five day road trip to the Vietnam Wall in Washington DC to see their fathers' names.  Along the way, reading those letters, they begin to get an understanding of who their fathers were and how they died.  Trials and mishaps, both funny and sad, complicate the road trip for the boys.  The horrors of war and the testing of faith manifest themselves for the young men in Vietnam.  Ultimately, in parallel stories - 25 years apart - the fathers and sons are bound together forever.  

Runtime: 96 minutes
Genre: Drama
Rating: PG-13 (for brief war violence)

 Starring: Stephen Baldwin, Kevin Downes, David A.R. White, Rebecca St. James, Si Robertson, Candace Cameron Bure, Scott Whyte, and Sean McGowan.

Special Features of the DVD:
-The Heart of Faith of Our Fathers
-Honoring Father's Day
-Commemorating Memorial Day
-Si Robertson Interview
-Stephen Baldwin Interview

Review & #Giveaway: STRONG and KIND: And Other Important Character Traits Your Child Needs to Succeed by Korie Robertson

I have always admired the Robertson Family.
They have maintained their values while being on a reality show.
Who are the Robertson Family you ask?
Duck Dynasty.
They are a strong, close family with conservative views.
I don't always agree with everything they believe but I admire them for not changing their beliefs in the face of diversity.

I am happy to say that Korie Robertson has written her fourth book & yours truly got to review it.
Yay!
This book has changed my family for the better.
It has made us focus on what really matters and is helping us install qualities we want to see in our children.





About the book: 
Hardcover; 240 pages
Publisher: Harper Collins Christian Publishing (October 27, 2015) 

In her new book STRONG and KIND: And Other Important Character Traits Your Child Needs to Succeed, Korie Robertson - New York Times bestselling author, wife of Duck Commander® CEO Willie Robertson, star of A&E's Duck Dynasty, and mother of five - argues that developing good character in our children is the single most important thing we can do to help ensure they lead happy, healthy adult lives.  Robertson explores key traits and what they truly look like in action, asks readers to select the two traits that they hope to see most in their children, and shares hands-on ways for nurturing strength of character.  Written with her mother Chrys Howard and featuring stories and wisdom from husband Willie, STRONG and KIND cuts through the contemporary cacophony of parenting manuals to rediscover, unfold, and embrace the enduring wisdom that has guided the best parents for centuries. 




About Korie Robertson:
Korie Robertson, wife of Duck Commander® CEO Willie Robertson and star of A&E's beloved series Duck Dynasty, is a mother of five a New York Times bestselling author of several books, including The Duck Commander Family: How Faith, Family, and Ducks built a Dynasty, written with Willie; Faith Commander: Living Five Values from the Parables with Jesus, written with her mother Chrys Howard; and The Women of Duck Commander: Surprising Insights from the Women Behind the Beards about What Makes this Family Work, written with all of the Robertson wives.  She is also an in-demand public speaker, Duck Commander® executive, entrepreneur and found of boutique Duck and Dressing, and philanthropist, who remains active with a variety of organizations that focus on children, adoption, and foster care.  Korie lives with her family in West Monroe, Louisiana.

Galaxy Buck: Mission to Sector 9 : Review & #Giveaway

Buck Denver.
Remember that name.
Buck.
Denver.
Your little ones will know his name, so you better memorize it.

Recently, I was fortunate it enough to get to see a preview of the new movie, Galaxy Buck: Mission to Sector 9.  What a cute movie.  For those of us old enough to remember, it will remind you of the specials from the 60's & 70's that would play on television around Christmas.  Made me feel like I was about 5 years old when I was watching it.

This movie has great humor, action, campiness and a has been extremely influenced by Star Trek.  That's just my take on it anyway.

This movie has a great message and is definitely for the six and under set.  The characters keep reminding the viewer that God wants us to do big things but the message is a bit construed by Buck.  A helpful "alien" helps him figure out the true message.

Check out this preview:




Here's a bit about the movie:

Buck Denver has a simple dream - to save the galaxy.  Working for the Galactic Mission Board, Buck dreams of carrying God's love to every corner of the Milky Way!  Except he doesn't have a starship.  Or a crew.  Or even a captain's license.  He just needs a chance.  But when that chance comes and Buck finds himself leading a real mission into deep space, things don't go at ALL like he imagined!  If he's doing what God wants him to do, why is everything going wrong?  From VeggieTales® and What's in the Bible? creator Phil Vischer, Galaxy Buck: Mission to Sector 9 is a wild, galactic adventure that teaches kids a powerful lesson about trusting God with everything - even our dreams! 
Run time: Approximately 40 minutes 

Of course, you can visit Galaxy Buck on their social websites as well.






Guess what? The sponsor of this review is allowing me to give one DVD away to one of my fantastical readers.

Come on, don't just sit there, ENTER!!!

Mesothelioma Awareness Day: September 26


I want to bring awareness to a Mesothelioma, a form of cancer that is preventable!
A disease I didn't know anything about until recently.

Take a look:


  • Mesothelioma Awareness Day is September 26, 2015 and the Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance is spreading awareness of the disease and it's causes.
  • Mesothelioma is a very rare cancer, but is completely preventable. Everyone should have access to information on asbestos exposure to keep our families safe, and to encourage world-wide ban on this carcinogen.
  • If you would like to help spread awareness, please donate your social status here: http://www.mesothelioma.com/heather/awareness/#.Veb1FbxVhHw
  • Heather Von St. James is almost a 10 year survivor of mesothelioma, which was caused by exposure to asbestos fibers on her dad's work jacket as a little girl.
  • Heather was diagnosed with Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma just months after giving birth to her daughter, she underwent surgery that involved a heated chemotherapy solution & the removal of her left lung.
  • Her and her husband Cameron now work to spread awareness of mesothelioma globally and this is something that everyone should be aware of.
My Poppy worked for Texaco for his entire life.  He was exposed to asbestos for much of his career.  Sadly, that and smoking, contributed to his lung cancer.  He was diagnosed with it and passed away two weeks later.  

Now there is more than can done.  Preventable measures are available to everyone.  Please, please look into this and if you can donate to the cause, please do!

Just take a look at this:



Please feel free to share this blog post, I actually encourage you to because this is something that everyone needs to know about.  Especially because it is an avoidable cancer.  

Thank you.

Review & #Giveaway: The Biggest Story: How the Snake Crush Brings Us Back to the Garden

 The Biggest Story: How The Snake Crusher Brings Us Back To The Garden by Kevin DeYoung & Illustrated by Don Clark.




First let me tell you, what a great children's book with fantastic pictures.  The pictures are worth framing.  I adore them.


Look at them:





Really, though, this is just the tip of the iceberg with this story.


It is wonderfully written.  Adults will enjoy it just as much as children.  DeYoung writes in a manner that is relatable to everyone.  


Check out this little synopsis:



About the book:
Hardcover: 132 pages
Publisher: Crossway (August 31, 2015)

In The Biggest Story, Kevin DeYoung - a best-selling author and father of six - leads kids and parents alike on an exciting journey through the Bible, connecting the dots from the garden of Eden to Christ's death on the cross to the new heave and new earth.  With powerful illustrations by award-winning artist Don Clark, this imaginative retelling of the Bible's core message-how the Snake Crusher brings us back to the garden-will draw children into the biblical story, teaching them that God's promises are even bigger and better than we think.

Securing Specialty Help with House Upgrades

When you remodel your home, you may find that you can do some of the minor work on your own. You can hang pictures, put up a border, or take care of other small tasks that do not require specialized training. However, as you delve deeper into transforming the look and feel of your house, you may realize that you need to hire contractors who can take care of delicate chores like putting in new plumbing. Rather than entrust this job to just anyone, you can make sure that only the most qualified work on your house by taking precautionary steps like securing renovation quotes. This information can reveal how prepared a team of contractors are and how eager a company is to help you.

Vetting bids for such specialized work can be difficult if you know little about it yourself. You may think you have an idea of how much you should be charged. In reality, however, your idea of a price may be too high or too low. Instead of putting yourself at risk of being taken advantage of by unscrupulous contractors, you can use the website to help you vet bids from reputable companies. The companies that bid through the site have reputations for being trustworthy. They also are known as being thorough and professional.

If you were to take time out of your day to sit down and call each plumber in your area, it could take hours, if not days to get all of the information you need. Even then, you may be unsure of which company to hire. By using the online resource, you can get a thorough list of companies that fit within your budget and have the skills needed to handle plumbing installation and upgrades. You can then use the details provided to contact the contractor, knowing how much you will likely pay once the work is finished.

You also may want to rely on companies that make every attempt to be green in their work. You can use the green remodeling tab at the top of the page to get a list of environmentally friendly contractors in your area. This assurance will give you the peace of mind you need to know that the work being done on your house will not negatively affect the environment. Vetting bids and hiring contractors is faster with this website.

Patterns of Evidence Exodus Review & Giveaway


You do not want to miss this!  This film is intriguing, insightful and will blow you away.

For more than 50 years, the vast majority of the world's most prominent archaeologists and historians have proclaimed that there is no hard evidence to support the Exodus story found in the Bible.  In fact, they say that the archaeological record is completely opposed to the Bible's account.  This view of extreme skepticism has spread from academia to the world.  The case against the Exodus appears to be so strong that even some religious leaders are labeling this ancient account as historical fiction.  Filmmaker Timothy Mahoney begins with the questions, "Is the Bible just a myth, or did the archaeologists get it wrong?"  He decides to tackle this issue wit a deliberate scientific approach.   After examining the details in the biblical text, he journeys across the globe to search for patterns of evidence firsthand.  The result is the most in-depth archaeological investigation into the Exodus from Egypt ever captured on film.   This scientific documentary's goal is to communicate the TRUTH of the Bible and help equip believers with defending their faith and the Bible.  

The DVD features stunning animations and a cast including narrator, Kevin Sorbo (God's Not Dead, Hercules: The Legendary Journeys), interviews with leading archaeologists including Israel Finkelstein, Kent Weeks, and David Rohl, and guest appearances by Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu and Shimon Peres.
