Book Review: "Glimmer and Shine" by Natalie Grant

Thanks to Zondervan for sending me this book for free in exchange for an honest review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% my own.   Praises of a Wife and Mommy are proudly a part of the Zblog squad team!  

Product Description:

In Glimmer and Shine: 365 Devotions to Inspire, author and award-winning recording artist, Natalie Grant, challenges and inspires girls ages 8 and up to be their best selves throughout every daily devotion filled with Bible verses, thought-provoking readings, prayers and interactive weekend pages that include quizzes, coloring pages and more. Girls can be confident and have fun when they decide to follow Jesus. Growing in faith, building up confidence, and trusting God even when we may not know where He is leading can be an adventure when His promises fill each moment. This two-color book of devotions with a ribbon marker and decorated cover provides inspiration for each new day. Glimmer and Shine is designed to speak directly to every type of girl, encouraging each individual reader to take a journey! A journey Faithgirlz readers won’t want to miss.

My Review:
This 365-day hardcover book is sure to please some girls in your life.  This devotional starts with scripture, devotional, and ends with a prayer.   Every few days it includes some puzzles, crosswords, or some other journal type pages. The book has 7 sections which include: Be Forgiven, Be Changed, Be His, Be Encouraged, Be Free, Be Brave, and Be One.   I like that this book labels each day as "Day 1 or Day 33" instead of starting at January 1st which makes it easy to start on any day.   I also really appreciate the ribbon bookmark, as it is always nice not to be looking for a new bookmark.  

Natalie Grant writes some very nice topics that mature girls will be able to learn and discuss.  I feel like it might be a bit more challenging for younger girls.  Overall, I enjoy reading it with my daughter who is ten but we really haven't had too many discussions yet with the readings.  She is 10 and is mature so I imagine se will start to be more comfortable discussing things.

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! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her
