Outreach at the skate park

This last weekend a few kids from our youth group and our church went to the event taking place at the skate park.  They brought in JSAW-Called into Action and the mission and vision of JSAW is: 
Mission: Transforming action sports culture by reaching youth
Vision: Helping others to create positive environments within action sports culture where youth can be introduced to Jesus Christ and enter into discipleship.

JSAW then partnered up with Siren Pro, Zac Archuleta.  It was a very neat experience watching these skate boarders.  As a mom my heart was  beating fast anytime there was a fall.  It was neat to see the wide variety of ages participate in this event.  I was shocked at how young some of these boarders were.

We went to simple hand out free hot-dogs and allow the Holy Spirit to move us and use us when ever.  I had one young boy come and get a hot-dog from me and I asked him if he was competing.  He said he was not able to compete due to a pinched nerve in his back.  He then walked away and I sat there thinking, sorry God you wanted me to pray for that young man and his pinched nerve.  Quickly after I thought that he came back over to get more ketchup and I asked him if he was in pain and he replied "yep it kinda is always achey."  Then I asked him if I could pray for him and he paused and then said "I think that will be alright."  So I prayed for him to recieve healing.  I could tell he was out of his comfort zone but I have been praying for him and praying seeds were planted.  :)

After the kids competed in different experience levels  they had the pro skater, Zac come up and speak and give his testimony.  It was fantastic!  There had to of been about 20 kids raise their hand for salvation!  :)  AMEN n AMEN!  Hubby and I are hoping to get down to the skate park more and develop relationships with these kids and hope that they will come to youth group or church some time!  :)

After the talk all the kids were in for a surprise...BLESSING!!  CCS is  skateboard company and at first they were going to give away a couple skate boards but when they heard what we were doing they got ALL the kids a new deck n wheels!  You should have seen the excitement... WOWZERS!  They were so thrilled it was fun!

Overall, I know God used me and I know he is not done with that young man!  I am believing in healing and salvation for him!

This boy was very young and very good!

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
