Praises of a Wife and Mommy was created for mom's like me. I like to share secrets, parenting advice, deals, the many arts and crafts that we do at our at home preschool, and most importantly share my faith. My many roles go beyond mom they also include, preschool teacher, Children's church teacher, youth pastor, wife, and one role I love Christ follower. Praises of a Wife and Mommy started small but is cotinuing to grow. I love to review products and hold giveaways.
"Wonderfully Made" by Joyce Meyer
Praises from a Wife and Mommy!
I was thrilled last year when I got to review Joyce Meyers book, Every Which Way to Prayand I was just as excited to review Wonderfully Made. Synopsis:
The popular Everyday Zoo series for young children by beloved and bestselling author Joyce Meyer continues with Wonderfully Made, a heartfelt and humorous story about Hayley Hippo finding her own unique talent and discovering that she’s perfect in God’s eyes.
As an adult women in ministry I love listening to Joyce Meyer and learning from the messages and books she writes. She is a great women of God and now writing children's stories makes me more inspired to try it myself!
New International Version (NIV)
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
This verse has been one of my favorite verses to quote especially during both of my pregnancies. I remember when I was a child I would think I had no talent but that is a lie from the enemy and the truth is we are WONDERFULLY MADE and God has give each of us a special gift and talent. That message is the main message for this great children's storybook. I love the characters and the illustrations through out. My kids both loved the story and my five year old wants to practice taking more pictures just like the main character, Hayley Hippo!
I received a copy of this book to conduct an honest review.

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
MY MEMORIES SUITE Review and giveaway! (#1 rated scrapbook software) The above is one of the scrap pages I have created. Super easy and super fast.

There are also tutorials available on youtube.com I am not sure if you are like me but I have spent hours online trying to upload photos to the web to place them into something I was trying to create.

It made my experience much quicker then other programs I have used online. The scrapbook software was very easy to download on my computer and did not take long to learn how to create. :) One feature t
