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


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 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.



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.

Thanks so much for everyone that entered my first giveaway. There are more coming.

The Winner of this giveaway is Michelle @neighborsmommy.  Please contact me at  Southernmomreviews@gmail.com with your information so I can get your prize to you.


Thanks again for entering.



Vacuuming is something that is not at the top of my list of favorite household chores.  I have to admit it is way down at the bottom.  Getting a heavy vacumm out of the closet and plugging it in.  Then having to push is around.  Ok so you get the idea that I am not a fan of vacuuming .

I was so excited to get to review the Pureclean PUCRC45 – Robot Vacuum Cleaner with Removable Dustbin

Robot Vacuum

In the package you receive

  • The Vacuum
  • A charger
  • charger cord
  • cleaning brush

When you first get the vacuum, you will want to charge it.  There are two ways to charge it.  One being plug in the charging cord directly into the vacumm and then into the wall outlet.  The second way to charge is use the charging dock.  This is the easiest to use.  You will program the vacuum using the LED display.  By using this feature the vacuum will stay charged when you need it.  It takes at least 3 hours to charge and it will last between 60 and 90 minutes on a single charge.  Once it is programed after it has finished cleaning it will go back to the docking station to be charged again.

Ever had surprise company coming over and you would not be home in time clean before they come over or you need to cook dinner ?  With this item you can program it to start working at a certain time, so you could be cooking for the company while the machine cleans your floors.   Using the LED display you can sechude the vacumm to start at a certain time.  This is why it is important to keep it charged, so when you want it come on it is charged and ready to go.

It will clean carpet, hardwood and tile.   It has a buffer on the front that if it hits furniture it will not damage it.  It follows the walls with edge cleaning that helps the robot from getting stuck or rolling over edges.


We have carpet through out our house and tile in the kitchen.  It is so neat to watch it go from the carpet to the tile and does not miss a beat in the cleaning.  Just to test it out I put down some extra dirt to see if it would clean and it was so wonderful to see it pick up.


The clean is a breeze.  It has a holder in the front that you open up and dump the dirt.  I recommend cleaning it each time so it is ready for each clean.


Overall I am very pleased with this robot cleaner. You can sechduele it to clean when you need it.  I received the robot at a discount in order to give my honest and unbiased opinion.

If you would like to buy one for your self go here

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.

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

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

– Faint color that fades with regular use.

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

Well, this should not happen anymore!

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.
