Bedtime Devotions with Jesus Book Review

Trustworthy devotional moms and dads can use to make bedtime family time, faith time.

After the busyness of the day is done, before your child nods off to sleep, snuggle up to read God's Word and daily reminders about how much He loves and takes care of us. Bedtime Devotions with Jesus is a collection of prayers and devotions written by pastors, pastor's wives, children's ministers, and other church leaders.

Each devotional includes a scripture, a brief devotional reading, a prayer, and a meaningful takeaway that helps children build a strong foundation of faith. This is the first children's book in the hugely popular MyDai…

Muller Dessert Inspired Yogurt ... Yep, It's Yogurt and this is a Giveaway

Let me begin by saying I like yogurt. It's on my weekly grocery list.  I pack it for lunch.  My kids take yogurt for lunch.  My family and I eat yogurt regularly for snacks.  That said, when I signed up for the Muller Dessert Inspired Yogurt BzzAgent campaign, I didn't expect to find myself writing a blog post about yogurt but...



My local grocery store had Muller yogurts on sale for 10 for $10 and since I'm a BzzAgent I received a package with some free product coupons plus some extra coupons to share.  I was disappointed to find only 1 flavor in stock (Peach Cobbler) and I'm not a peach cobbler fan so no Muller yogurt that shopping trip.  A few days later I returned to the store and all four Muller Dessert Inspired Yogurt flavors were in stock.  OH YEAH!!!
HAVE YOU TRIED Muller Dessert Inspired Yogurt YET?
We tried all four varieties and here's what we thought.

Gorton's Taking it to the Next Level with Gorton's Smart and Crunchy #Giveaway

I don't know what it is about kids and fish sticks.  Kids seem to love them and most of the fish sticks I see are loaded with calories.  When I think of fish sticks, I flashback to lunchtime at my old elementary school cafeteria.  Sitting around the cafeteria table yakking it up with my friends.  Leave it to Gorton's to reinvent the fish stick and take it to the next level.  Enter Gorton's Smart and Crunchy 2.0 
Gorton’s all NEW Smart and Crunchy Fish Sticks and Fillets are made with 100% wild-caught Alaska Pollock and breaded in panko breadcrumbs to gives them a great crunch and pack in a punch of flavor. Gorton’s all NEW Smart and Crunchy Fish Sticks and Fillets have 50% less fat than their regular Fish Sticks and Fillets and 200 calories or less per serving.  
Fat?     Calories?        Yep, Gorton’s all NEW Smart and Crunchy Fish Sticks and Fillets are all grown up.  Gorton's is my family's first choice when it comes to fish sticks.  It's a trusted brand and a q…

Hillsong United - #EMPIRES CD Review and Giveaway

Music moves the soul and some rhythms more than others.  Take for instance, the Australian band, Hillsong United.  4 #1 Christian Albums.  2007 Top Christian album.  2001 Hot Christian Single on the Billboard charts.  Have you heard of them?


Hillsong United is rocking into 2015 with the release of their latest CD, Empires.  This 12-track CD features worship songs to lift the spirit.  Those who are familiar with Hillsong United may find this CD more tame than previous releases.  However, it has it upsides.  For example, the tune "Street Called Mercy" is beautifully written and echoes of a soul desperately longing for comfort.  Another tune I liked was "Rule", a loving cry of praise.


 Track Listing:
1. "Here Now (Madness)"
2. "Say the Word"
3. "Heart Like Heaven"
4. "Touch the Sky"
5. "Street Called Mercy"
6. "When I Lost My Heart to You (Hallelujah)"
7. "Even When It Hurts (Praise Song)"�…
