God’s Amazing World Review & Giveaway!

By Barbie   /     Mar 23, 2014  /     Book Reviews, Reviews & Giveaways  /     6 Comments
I don’t normally post on Sundays. But I had the opportunity to review this adorable book so I wanted to make sure it fit it into my posting schedule. Thank you for reading and I hope you will enter the giveaway!

As a mid-life mom, I no longer have littles running around the house anymore.  And I am still waiting for the grandbabies to come along.  However, I do teach Sunday School for ages 4-6 at my church, so I love when I get the opportunity to review products that we could use in our classroom!

God’s Amazing World is a beautifully illustrated story of God’s creation for children ages 4-8.


=&0=& Gracie and her cousin Bo explore the seven days of Creation, all without leaving the backyard! As Gracie tells the story of how God made the world, she and Bo find evidence of each day’s work right there around them. When they get to Day 2, the day God created the sky, they take a moment to cloud watch. Day 3 leads them to play in the water, and on Day 6, they imitate the cows and pigs and lions God made.

The first thing I noticed about this book was it’s strikingly beautiful cover.  It made me want to read it.  This sweet, clever picture book by Eileen Spinelli overflows with enthusiasm for God’s Creation, and children will catch the excitement and will begin to view their own surroundings as a tour of God’s lovely world.

I  have been married for 25 years.  We have had our share of joyous times, hard times and sorrow.  No matter how long you’ve been married, there is always room for improvement.  Always.  My husband and I have struggled more in the last five years of our marriage than we ever have.  But even with the challenges, we are committed to each other and we are committed to our marriage.  If there is one thing I know and understand, marriage is work, and couples must be willing to work on their marriage in order to remain satisfied and fulfilled.

Unstoppable: Review & Giveaway

By Barbie   /     Jan 29, 2014  /     Reviews & Giveaways  /     22 Comments

As a mom, I am always interested in films that will share the truth of God’s Word in a way that my children can understand way.  When I first became aware of the film, “Unstoppable”, starring Kirk Cameron, I was intrigued, and excited to take my teenagers to see it.  But unfortunately, the film was not going to be released in a theatre near me.  So I was very thankful to have been given the opportunity to review this DVD with my family.  (*This film is recommended for ages 12+.)
