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.

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!!!
