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.

FaithGirlz launches new user-friendly website
Grand Rapids--- March 12, 2014---Growing up isn't easy. With so much to learn and figure out sometimes deciding who you are is the biggest challenge of all. Faithgirlz helps preteen girls discover the beauty of believing.
As a product line created especially for girls from Zonderkidz, FaithGirlz offers tweens, ages 8-12, the unique opportunity to explore, share, and develop their faith. Zonderkidz is thrilled to be able to share God's Word to this unique and wonderful group of believers and seekers as they navigate the sometimes difficult, but always exciting, "tween" years.
The FaithGirlz website was developed to give girls a sense of community and belonging that is an extension of Zonderkidz FaithGirlz products, which also include the new Good News Shoes and Samantha Sanderson series, and helpful resources like Finding God in Tough Times. Girls will have the opportunity to create, learn and explore in a safe and welcoming environment that aims to bring them closer to God in their spiritual walk. The website offers a wealth of resources for bible studies, youth group gatherings, and time with friends that are especially targeted towards teen girls. The new website offers exciting new features that promote engagement and interaction. New features include:
Fun quizzes and polls
Devotions with interactive Live It Out! opportunities
Links to the newest FaithGirlz products
The FaithGirlz website also includes a section just for parents and educators to learn additional information and get advice on parenting a FaithGirl from professional experts with backgrounds in working with tween girls.

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. I only took a couple minutes to create a 8 page photo book. I am still going to do some more with adding more embellishments! The below is one I created all from scratch and it only took me about 5 minutes! :) SO EASY! Here is a great video explaining more about the product. 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.

I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes. :) Ready, Set, Go! Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her
