God’s Great Love For You- Book Review

god love

I teach at a Christian preschool and I am always looking for new and interesting books to use with my students.  I was given the opportunity to review the book God’s Great Love For You.  The illustrations are very bright and well done.  The colors are bright and the pictures are big.  There are not a lot of illustrations on each page which helps the little ones to keep focus on  what is being read to them.  I read it to my students and they really enjoyed it.  We have read it so much that they are starting to know the words and what comes next.  I love that they liked the book so much that they are telling me when I miss a word in the story.

I really enjoyed the book and would recommend it to anyone with children that you are trying to teach how much God loves them.

The Garden by Kari Jobe

the-garden

Grammy nominated Kari Jobe is the premiere female worship leader in Christian music.  Coming off her last album, majestic which featured the worship anthem “Forever” and radio hit ” I Am Not Alone”  Kari Jobe has returned to the studio to record her new album, The Garden full of new worship anthems for the church and for personal reflection and prayer.  She found the inspiration for this new music from lifes joy of having a new son and the life hardships, her sisters loss of her daughter. Though it all Kari relied on her love of God and the foundation she had built with the Lord to get her though it all.

 

We loved her new album in our house.  The words are meaningful and they will move you in different ways depending on what you are going though in life right now. My teenage daughter loved the song The Garden. The first time she heard it she just sit with her eyes closed listening to the words of the song.  It was such a blessing watching her get joy out of the music.

We received the album in exchange for my honest opinion.  I love this album and excited that she is coming to Nashville in concert.  To see if she is coming to a town near you please follow this link.

 

Emoji Tumbler Set Review

 

emoji

 

Emoji’s are all the rage right now, especially with the middle and high school student .  These are very cute cups.  You will get 2 cups.

Pro’s of the cups:

  • Made of heavy plastic, so they are not easily cracked
  • Has a hard plastic straw that has a rim at the end so it will not come out of the cup while using it.
  • Holds 16 ounces
  • Lids screw off and off easily
  • BPA free plastic
Con’s of the cups:
  • The only con I can find is it does not list if it is dishwasher safe or not.  I am hand washing them and would say they are not dishwasher safe.

 

Overall I am happy with the cups and glad the I received them at a discount in order to give my honest opinion.

Emoji Golfball Review/Giveaway

Emoji’s are all the rage right now.  Emoji’s are everywhere to tell someone how you feel.  If you have a teenager, as I do, you know that they use Emoji’s more than they do actual words.

I had never seen then in golf balls.  These golf balls are practice balls which means they are not as strong as golf balls the professionals use.  They are however very nice to use if you are just a weekend golfer or to use as practice balls.  They are a very bright yellow, so they would be easy to find out on the golf course while you are practicing.

 

My daughter played when she was younger and plans to start back once the weather warms up here in the south, which will not be that much longer.  She plans on playing some with her cousin and can not wait to show him these golf balls.  They will be playing for fun so these can be used.  These can not be used in regular play if you are playing in a tournament or High School games.

 

I received this set of golf balls at a discount in order to give my honest and unbiased opinion.

 

golfballs

In the box you will receive 12 golf balls.

Two Of Each Design; 2 Tears of Joy; 2 Heart Eyes;2 Kissy Face; 2 Tongue; 2 Money Eyes; 2 Sunglasses .  They come in a very nice gift box

I think these would make a great Father’s Day gift.  If you would like to buy a set for your favorite Dad or golfer you can buy on Amazon.

Easter Glow in the Dark Easter Egg Kit

Easter is such a special time in the religious  community.  I teach in a Christian school so I have to combine the fun aspect of Easter along with the religious reason behind Easter.  With this Easter Glow In the Dark Easter Egg Kit, I get to combine both in a fun way.

 

GE
Egglo Glow in Dark Kit

In the kit you will receive the following:

1 x Egg-cellent Easter Adventure storybook

1 x Egg-cellent Easter Adventure narrated book on DVD (25 mins)

book

 

In the book it tells of three friends that go on an adventure to find the meaning of Easter.  They find a glowing egg in the attic which takes them on this grand adventure.  The book has a lot of reading so it for advance readers or you will need to read to your child.  I teach 3 year olds and it was a little long for them.  I ended up paraphrasing the book. The subject of the book was given to the children.  I love that it tells the story of Easter in a different way.  It takes you through different Bible stories to get to the Easter message.

 

The DVD is much better for smaller  children.  It tells the story from the book on the DVD.  It is narrated, cartoon.  I think if the children had talked  in the story it would have kept their attention.  My students watched it and did ask some questions  so I know they were paying attention.  One of them asked why the kids were not talking.  In the day of cartoons they are used to the characters talking.  This by no means  DVD is not good to use with the kids.  I feel like my kids did understand the lesson they were learning.
12 x Glow in the Dark Egglo Eggs

glow1

The glow in the dark eggs were a big hit.  I turned the lights out in the class room to show them.  The whole premise behind the kit is to show the children that Jesus is the light of the world.  With the glow in the dark eggs this shows the meaning.  You will get 12 eggs, 6 have the cross and 6 are plain. They do open so you could place candy in the eggs if you wanted to do an Easter Egg hunt at night.

12 x Egglo Treasures Scripture Scrolls

12 x Bible Verse Scroll Stickers

 

GE
Scrolls

The scrolls are like in the book and DVD that the children follow through the story.

The Bible Verse Scroll stickers are like in the story.  They are not the exact words from the bible but they do get the point across of what the Bible is saying.
12x Easter Egg Stickers
12 x Egg-cellent Easter Adventure Character Stickers

GE
Stickers

The kids liked the stickers and it helped in retelling the story we talked about.

By the end of the lesson the kids knew that Jesus was the light of the world.
BONUS: Glow in the dark event program curriculum. A step by step guide to plan an event, including printable invitations, coloring pages, cut outs and more

The bonus CD is useful if you were having a party to help you plan it.  It did have a color page I printed off for the kids to color.

 

My thoughts.

I was very impressed with the kit.  It was well put together and each part built on the other.  It used the fact that kids love to watch cartoons to help tell the story of Easter.  They did it in such a way as not to be scary for little children.  There are parts of the Easter story that can be very scary for young children.  This kit tells the story in a way small children will under stand.  The book is a little advanced for the small child but an older child could enjoy using it and learn from it as well.

 

I am very pleased with the kit and glad I received it at a discount in order to give my honest and unbiased opinion.

I hope you all have a happy Easter and enjoy time with your family as you talk about the reason for Easter.

I hope

Outdoor Garden Hose

I know it is winter in most parts of the country right now, but spring will be here soon.  The groundhog said it would be here in 6 weeks, so we better start getting prepared.  I have been looking for a light weight hose for a while now.  This one fits that requirement.  Some of the hoses I have had in the past are so heavy it is hard to move it around the yard while I am watering my flowers.

This hose ships at 1.8 pounds.  When you get the hose out of the box it is 17ft.  With water pressure it expands to 50ft.  Just the right length to water my flowers.  It is really fun watching it expand from the 17ft to the 50ft by just adding the water pressure to it.

It comes with a spray nozzle that has 7 different spray styles.  It was super easy to add to the hose.  What I really like about the hose is that it stores so easily.  When the water is all out it goes back to the 17 ft hose. It does not get tangled like other hoses.

 

I received this hose from JFSG Outdoor Premier Revised Second Edition Expandable 50ft Green Garden Water Hose by JFSG Outdoor with Brass Connections and 7 Pattern Spray Nozzle with Lifetime Warranty
free of charge in order to give my honest and unbiased opinion.

 

Right now they are having a sale on their site. Save 20% each on Qualifying items offered by JFSG Enterprise, LLC when you purchase 1 or more  with code 9NGOUCK7  at checkout.

 

This is a very well made hose that I know will be getting a lot of use this spring and summer when  I start planting and watering my out side plants.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Perfjohn Egf Stem Cell Anti Aging Cream

I was recently given the opportunity to try Perfjohn Egf Stem Cell Anti Aging Cream

 cream2

It comes in the Styrofoam container as shown in the picture.  This keeps containers safe.  It comes in a 1oz pump bottle.  You must prime the pump a few times before the cream comes out.

cream 2

Once the cream comes out it is a creamy white constancy.creamI have to say it feels very good on my skin.   It only takes one pump to cover your whole face.  It feels very cool and creamy as it goes on your face.  It does not leave your face tight or oily like some other creams have done.  I do not have a lot of wrinkles but I do have one big one right on my forehead.  I have been using this about 7 days and it has helped the wrinkle on my forehead.  It is not completely gone but I can tell that it is starting to disappear.   I do love how it makes my face feel.  I like that it has stem cells in the cream.  I have heard great things from stem cells so I am sure that this cream is on the breaking edge of face cream.

I am so glad I was given the chance to try this cream.  The cream is cutting edge since it has gold flakes and stem cells.

The company states the following about their product:

  • Turn back the clock with this revolutionary cream! All it takes is 7-10 days to see amazing results. We’ve taken the potent stem cell extract of the Swiss apple; which repairs damaged skin cells, reconstructs cell membranes, and even strengthens cell resistance in thin or sensitive skin, and combined it with EGF(epidermal growth factor); which has been shown to reduce scars, promote cell regeneration, and repair damage done to the skin, making it smoother, softer, and imparting a healthy glow. In addition to this, we’ve added Hyaluronic Acid; which helps helps the skin retain moisture and detoxify itself. We have this acid naturally in our skin but as we age, it diminishes. This cream will help replenish your lost levels and protect that which remain

I received this product free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.  I am so glad I got the chance to try this.  I have been seeing a difference in my skin since using this.

Chalk Marker Review

We are absolutely in love with art in my house. My daughter was one of a handful of upcoming freshman given the opportunity to take High School art as a freshman. Those slots are usually saved for the upperclassman. She was so excited to get the opportunity and I was one proud mom.

I had these chalk markers that needed to be tried, so who better than the Art girl Brookster to try them out.

She was so excited that I gave her free range on the glass front door in order to show how great these markers are. Here is a picture of my somewhat clean front door before she takes her artistic ability to it. front doorHere is Brookster working on her master piece.   My front door my never be the same again. lol  I love it so much watching her grow and develop in her artistic endeavors.

 nullchalk2A little about the markers before we give the big reveal of all the things she has written and drawn on the door all with the Chalk Markers By Colore – 6mm Bullet and Chisel Tip – 8 Pack Bright Vibrant Colors

This is what the company as to say about there markers from the Amazon webpage.

Add Color To Your Life With Colore Chalk Marker!

Tired of messy board makers and chalk dust which course you these common problems?

– Dust from using traditional chalk which often leads to respiratory problems.

– Abrasive traditional chalk that leaves coarse and unsightly markings on the chalkboard.

– Faint color that fades with regular use.

– Stains in pockets of your clothing as a result of carrying chalk.

– Chalk that is not ideal for kids because of the dust and stain markings.

Well, this should not happen anymore!

Say Hello To Colore Chalk Marker! – The Amazing Metallic Tip Chalk Marker

– They are available in 8 vivid colors including purple, white, blue, yellow, orange, pink, red and green.

FREE GIFT: Colore Chalk Marker comes with One Silicone Pen Holder, color of pen holder varies (pink, yellow, green, blue, orange).

What Mommy says:

I really do love these markers.  You have to shake them in order to get the chalk down to the tip of the maker.  Brookster uses a scrape piece a paper to help get the marker started before she stars drawing.   They come in a very bright colors.  The one thing I really like about these markers is that they come with this Silicone holder that comes FREE.  You are not even paying for the holder.  I like having a place to put the markers after you are finished using them.  The markers should be stored tip down in order for the chalk to be able to stay in the tip of the marker.

What Brookster says:

She says they are amazing.  The ink comes out fast which allows you to draw and write better than some of the other chalk markers she has used in the past.   She thinks the bright colors are awesome.  She loves anything bright and these are defiantly that    Here is the end result of Master Peace

doorI think it turned out really great.  It washes off very easily with soap and water.  I think these are a win/win in our house.  I love that it gave her an artisitic outlet that involves other mediums other than pencil and paper.  Brookster wins because she gets to play and draw with a different type of marker that she has been used to.  We will also be using these to mark on the car when we go to ball games this fall.

Elusive Dreams: Sleeping Mask with Earplugs

This has been the best sleep mask we have used in a long time. My husband works nights, so his nights are my days. I try hard to be quiet and not wake him up. Real life though is loud at the best you can do. Cooking, cleaning , kids and dogs all equal lots of noise during the day.

The sleep mask with earplugs is going to be our solution to the problem. The ear plugs keep the noise down and the mask keeps the sun from shining in the room and disturbing him.

I was very impressed with the softness of the material but is was also very sturdy to not bunch up when he was sleeping. The pocket for the earplugs is also a major plus. This way he does not have to worry about losing them.

I asked him how he liked them. He stated that before the Sleep Mask with earplugs he was having a terrible time staying asleep. After the sleep mask he stated that he was staying asleep and not waking up near as much. That was my whole goal so the mask and earplugs met all my goals and expectations.

I received this in exchange for an honest and unbiased opinion.sleep mask
