Book Review and GIVEAWAY- "The Purpose Driven Life for Kids"

Based on the New York Times bestselling book The Purpose Driven Life, this 365-day devotional The Purpose Driven Life Devotional for Kids, offers inspiration for children 9-12. Most children at this age form their foundational thoughts about God and their place in the world.

Thank you Zondervan for sending me this book to review and for sponsoring a giveaway for this same book!  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine. 

My Review:
I remember several years ago I read the adult "Purpose Driven Life"  with my husband.   He was at the time only my boyfriend but we made it important to start a good foundation with devotionals being a big part of who we are.   Now that we have been married for 9 years and have two children we are always trying to find new ways to encourage them in their relationship with their Daddy God.   This kids version is geared for 9- 12 year olds.   My daughter just had her 8th birthday and she really wants to read this book and so far she has been doing just fine.  I imagine as she continues there might be more questions to answer for her.   

I started to read the book as well because sometimes kids books can speak volumes to me.   I realized I need to keep reading it when I read day two of "The Purpose Drive Life for Kids" when it asked a question that I have asked my self.   Seriously though when you read in 1 Chronicles the long list of names that keep going I always say God why do I need to know all these names.   This devotional reminded me that God Honors heritage and his followers and it is awesome to think about how all these names were so important to the nation of Isreal. 

Each page of this devotional only takes a few minutes which makes doing a daily devotional simple.   Getting my kids to read their bible and do a devotional is so vital to me as a mom.   I hope they grow to love doing it as I never want it to become a chore for them my prayer is for them to want to do it all the time. 

This devotional is only $15.99 on Zondervan.  I recommend this for your kids or even yourself!

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,
