Book Review: "Lizzy the Lioness"

Sometimes the bravest thing you can do is ask for help! Encourage your little ones with the true meaning of bravery through the beautiful story of Lizzy the Lioness by New York Times bestselling author Lisa Bevere.
Boys and girls will love the story of Lizzy, a little lion who must learn what it truly means to be brave in the face of hard things. When she sees someone in danger, Lizzy tries her best to help, but she quickly learns that sometimes being brave means asking adults for help.
With a unique spin on the concept of bravery, Lizzy the Lioness is a timely picture book in an ever-changing world. Children will see that bravery is so much more than big muscles or loud roars but often is found in the tiniest people who have the courage to speak up when no one else will. By asking God for help and then bringing grown-ups into the picture, Lizzy shows kids that being brave doesn’t have to happen by yourself—it happens with help!

My Review:
The righteous are bold as a lion.  Proverbs 28:1
That was the scripture on the first page or dedication page.  It made me smile and excited to not only read this story but to make sure my kids understood what boldness was.  
The story started off by Lizzy pretending to be strong and brave.  I find it cute because many times we do see our children try to act like us the parents.  It is always a good reminder to step up our game and be good examples to our kids.  
Lizzy then decides she is tired of just "playing" brave but she desired to grow up and actually do it.  I can recall those same thoughts as a child.  I was so excited to be a teenager, to have a boyfriend, to have a career and family.  
Lizzy meets a little girl and mother and realizes she is little just like the little girl.  Later Lizzy gets to be a hero to that little girl!  YAY!  No it was not in the big way she thought by fighting or being brave to fight baboons but rather it was being wise and being bold to ask for help.  The last line is a great one, "Sometimes the bravest thing you can do is to ask for help."  It is a valuable lesson we all need to hear.  We sometimes have the idea in our head that we can't ask for help or that it is a sign of weakness but that is not the case.  Asking for help is important and staying humble is a great trait to have.

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,
