"Something Inside of Me" Review and Giveaway

I had the opportunity to receive a free copy and a copy to giveaway of the book "Something Inside of Me" "How to hang on to Heaven when you're going through Hell" by Chitoka Webb.  So read my review and then enter for your chance to win a copy of the book using the easy rafflecopter form on the bottom.  

My Thoughts:
I was very excited to read this book as I felt this was going to be an inspiring story from a Christian women.  The story is not long and is a very easy and quick read but also very well written.  So if you don't have much time then this would be a great story to read.  I read this a few times before bed and while breastfeeding my little boy.  

I was amazed at the drive that Chitoka (Toke) had throughout the entire story.  With a background growing up in the housing projects of Nashville by a single mother most people would use that as a pity story and not work hard but not Chitoka.  She was the opposite she had drive and determination that borders an unhealthy measure.  She tells her story about how she went from not being able to graduate High School with her class to how she opened up more then one business to then sharing a horrifying and heartbreaking story of health issues. 

I liked how the story progressed but I do have one negative.  I fully don't understand her faith beliefs.  She mentions God and faith but from my perspective my heart was aching as I don't think she fully and 100% surrendered her all to our Most High Daddy God.   She talks about a faith adviser and she mentions prayer often but I still have this odd feeling that she does not have that one on one connection and true relationship you get when you let Christ forgive you and take his free gift.  I could be totally wrong and if so I am very sorry but I got the feeling that she was very new age??  It was odd!  I got that feeling a couple times but one when she was talking about "her something" which she did refer to God but then called it "my something" rather then Holy spirit guidance.  Needless to say it confused me.  I just want to throw out there that yes you have strength but I claim and hold onto Phillipians 4:13 "I can do all things through Christ Jesus who strengthens me."  

I love the fact that she did not give up after not graduating with her High School class but allowed it to catapult her into figuring out what she wanted to work towards.  If I was given one word to describe Chitoka it would be "hard worker."  She worked at the age of 13 then worked 2 jobs for much of her life. It just seemed like work was her comfort and her drive.  I am not sure if she was trying to prove to someone so she worked extra hard or if she just wanted to prove she could do it.  Needless to say that if are looking for a reading to get excited and believe in yourself then pick up this book because Chitoka is determined and proves hard work pays off.

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,
