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!

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.  THE BIGGEST BONUS to My Memory Suite is the fact that it is downloaded to your computer so you do not have to wait forever for a picture to upload!

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
