"Field of Peace" by Joyce Meyer Book Review

Joyce Meyer is one neat lady and it is so fun to read her new children's books!  I have already reviewed her story "Every Which Way to Pray"  a couple months ago.

I was very excited to review "Field of Peace."  This story takes place at the Everyday Zoo and the baseball championships are underway.  Boyd, the star pitcher is not on his game because he feels terrible about a not so nice choice he made.  Can He fix it? Will he find peace again and make the right choice? Will they win the game?

I love all the animal characters within the story.  My daughter loves giraffes so the star, Boyd, was a giraffe and even though he made a bad choice he was able to admit his wrong and fix his mistake.  Arnold the Armadillo was the character that Boyd was not very nice too.  I could see a second book off of this one teaching about Arnold overcoming FEAR!  :)  I like the lesson applied to the story.  I think it is so important to teach our kids about the Holy Spirit and His leading with peace or no peace.  It is hard for children to understand the Holy Spirit but they sure understand that icky tummy feeling when peace is gone.  I know for me personally that when I have to make a decision I seek peace first while praying!  It sure has helped me in so many decisions!  :)  This mom definitely recommends this book for your personal library or any children's church library!  :)

Overall there is a great biblical truth to learn and enforce with our children- PEACE!  When our hearts and tummies feel icky is because we might not be making the right choice.  God will give us peace to help us through all decisions.  :)

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,
