How many of you are excited for the release of "The Smurfs: the Lost Village?"   I have enjoyed these movies and this one looks like a really fun one to watch.  The movie comes to theaters nationwide on April 7th, 2017!  Will you be taking your kids?  

Win tickets for opening weekend by clicking HERE!!  GOOD LUCK, hope you and your family can have a blast!  

One thing I do with my kids after watching a movie is talking about connections we make from the movie to our Bible!  (At my church I get to do monthly movie nights and this is so fun)
Here are a few questions to get you started discussing this movie with your kids!

Questions for Consideration: 
1. What words would you use to describe yourself? How can you give those things to God? 
2. What’s the problem with trying to find your identity in accomplishments, careers, money, abilities or relationships?
 3. How does finding your identity in Christ give you greater freedom to pursue your goals and dreams in life?
Guiding Scripture:* “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” —Ephesians 2:10

Questions for Consideration:
 1. How is service a part of your life? How can you make it a bigger part? Write down some ways you can serve the people nearest you.
 2. Read Philippians 2:3. Why do you think humility and service are linked? How can being humble give you more opportunities to serve? 
3. What do you think Jesus meant when he said, “The greatest among you will be your servant” (Matthew 23:11)? How does serving make you great?
Guiding Scripture:* “The greatest among you will be your servant. For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.” —Matthew 23:11-12

Questions for Consideration: 
1. When have you showed courage? What was the result?
 2. Remember a time that someone’s bravery inspired you. Who was it and what did they do that motivated you to act courageously?
 3. In what area of your life do you need to show more courage? What is stopping you and how can you overcome that?
Guiding Scripture:* “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.” —Joshua 1:9

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
