Book Review: "Dare U 2 Open This Book"


About the book:
D-I-R-T. What kind of dirt are you? Eyeballs are on U. U know it. What kind of light R U?
Dare U 2 Open this Book is not your typical 90-day devotional for guys. It’s an all-out open space for you to explore and learn more about yourself and your faith. With prompts to get your mind thinking and your creative ideas flowing, turn your thoughts and emotions into dynamic doodles, fill in the prayer blanks, solve puzzles, and more.
Each of the short, single-page devotions includes a topic, quote, Scripture summary, plus doodles, journal prompts, lists, puzzles, quizzes, fill-in-the-blank prayers, and unique activities that explore Bible truths and ways to apply them—everyday. —Dare U 2 Open this Book challenges guys to follow Jesus. Best. Idea. Ever.

My Review:
Getting tween aged boys excited to read is a hard enough task!   This new devotional for boys is not just about reading scripture it truly gives boys time to reflect and think about certain topics at length.   I also love that the book has other activities inside it to keep boys entertained and give their mind a thinking break.  The best thing is this book truly is relationship building with our Savior Jesus!  Pick this book up for $9.99 from Zondervan.  

Thanks Zondervan for supplying me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.   All opinions are 100% mine and I was not paid for this review.

Adventure Bible for Toddlers Review and Giveaway



About the Book

The Adventure Bible for Toddlers starts children ages 2-5 on the journey of a lifetime, teaching them about the Bible’s great stories and themes. It helps young children grow in their relationship with God using stories and art from the wildly popular Adventure Bible Storybook. With ten beautifully illustrated and beloved Bible stories from the Old and New Testament, this sturdy padded board book will stimulate toddlers’ minds and fill their hearts with love for their heavenly Father.


My Review
I have a 3 year old son and he fits the age group for this fabulous  Bible board book.   Each of the ten stories are stories that we have talked and discussed before which helped him make connections when we turned the page and he knew what the story was before even starting to read it.  I like board books for my son still because he can get a little rough still and I don't have to worry about pages being ripped.  Board books are also very easy for little fingers to help turn the pages so the kids are more active during story time!  

Giveaway Time
This book is a great present for Christmas but also for any expecting parent!  :)   Helping parents be able to share their faith with their children is so valuable so help share God with our little ones with this great Bible.

Beanitos Chips Review and Giveaway




AMAZING TASTE—POWERFUL NUTRITION

We’re two brothers who love to snack! We think everyone deserves to crunch and dip without compromise—to enjoy a snack that tastes great and is good for you. But we just couldn’t find a snack that fit the bill… so we created Beanitos©.
Beanitos are an honestly delicious snack made from super nutritious beans that have fiber and protein grown right in them. They’re real food, full of crunchy flavor, free of preservatives, and made with only natural non-GMO ingredients.
Some call us revolutionaries. Others call us and say, “C’mon over and bring some Beanitos.” We think you’ll call Beanitos your new favorite snack!

My Review:
Thanks Beanitos for sending me chips to conduct a review.   I was not paid for this review and all opinions are 100% mine.  
You all know I am a fan of Beanitos since I reviewed them earlier this year.   I am and will always be a bean fan so a chip that is better for me made from beans is a win win situation.  :)   My first review can be found by clicking HERE.  

Football season always means snack season and Beanitos fits the bill!   Whether you are at home on the coach cheering your team on or out tailgating before a game be sure to include a bag or two of Beanito chips!  

One thing I have decided goes great with Beanito chips is some good Texas Caviar!   This dip with the chip is a great pair... yes it is bean with more bean but it is a taste bud explosion!   YUM  What is your favorite chip dip?

Adagio Tea Review and Giveaway




Thank you Adagio Tea for sending me samples in exchange for an honest review and sponsoring a giveaway to one lucky fan.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions are 100% mine. 

Fall is here and the cooler temps are giving me shivers in the morning.  For the past several months I have started to drink tea but typically only drinking green tea but after getting these samples last week I am now a new tea fanatic.   I can't get enough and these flavors are crazy amazing.

Adagio Tea is a fun site with the biggest variety in tea.  You literally could spend hours looking at the tea.   I found the site very humorous because if you click on the bottom where it says, "self ban" you can fill out a form and get yourself banned from the site for a few days  ranging from 1-7 days if you become too addicted to the awesome site!   That is hysterical! 

After getting a good belly laugh from that one I got to see the more serious side which includes all the health benefits from tea!   I list is very long so I will just send you to the link to read:  http://www.adagio.com/info/health_benefits.html 
Just make sure to click on each ailment to read about the benefits of tea... very impressive! 

I have had my taste buds in tea satisfaction the last few days!  The Peach Oolong tea is so flavorful that I am tempted to hide it away from everyone else in the house.  It is by far my favorite so far!  

The two tins are part of the kids series.   I have sampled the Snow White tea which is a part of the Fairy Tale Trio and the Rocket Fuel which is a part of the Tree House Trio.  The tins are beautiful and my daughter was delighted to have a true tea party with real tea.  Not only did my 7 year old try the tea but she loved it!  :) The Rocket Fuel is also yummy and no worries it does not actually have caffeine in so it is safe for the kids.   

Order your tea today and also share Adagio with your friends and save $5 by clicking HERE

Giveaway Time:
One lucky winner will win the Fairy Tale Trio Tea Package.   It includes:


Sleeping Beauty
An herbal tea blend to wake Sleeping Beauty from an ageless sleep. Magically created by the good fairies Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather.

Snow White
An apple tea blend to help Snow White ward off the wicked Queen's poisonous spell and awake with the gentle kiss from her handsome Prince.

Cinderella
A pumpkin tea blend to transport Cinderella away from the wicked stepmother to the royal ball and the attention of her prince.   
 
The tins each have 15 tea bags that smell amazing and taste wonderful.  Also, there is no caffeine in the tea's so no worries with your little ones!  TEA is great for them.

Fall Fun




I love my church family!   Today was our potluck but instead of being at church we went to one of the members house who lives out in the country.  

Apple bobbing...have you done it?   It is all about committing and knowing you are going to get wet!  


We also went on a fun nature treasure hunt in the fields.  Some of the kids even saw a snake, a baby mouse, and a dead bird.  


Just visiting with people and admiring my son playing with some of the kids made me quite content where I was.  HAPPY!   Grass stained pants just make me thank my Daddy God for health in my family... plus thoughts about finding a wrestling team for him to join.
