Patterns of Evidence: The Exodus

Patterns of Evidence Exodus Giveaway Ends 9/9I love learning about the Bible and having a visual journey is always amazing.  While there are some things I agree with and some that I am not so sure about, either way I loved Patterns of Evidence!  I reviewed Patterns of Evidence: Exodus before and greatly enjoyed it!  It inspired research and deeper study which can never be a bad thing!

The Bible’s Exodus account is under attack from many of the world’s leading experts who say there is no evidence for this foundational story – they claim it’s just a myth. Faced with the skepticism, filmmaker Timothy Mahoney experienced a crisis of faith. Mahoney had been investigating the Bible’s Exodus account, and this controversy forced him to refocus on one question – is there any evidence that this fundamental story really happened?

The result of the 12-year investigation was the feature-length documentary film, Patterns of Evidence: the Exodus. It reveals a powerful and faith-affirming pattern of evidence matching the major events of the Bible’s Exodus and Conquest accounts in the archaeology of Egypt and Israel. This evidence has been largely unrecognized because it exists in an earlier period of history than where most scholars are looking. Yet the historical information in the Bible itself points to the Exodus happening in a historical period that is centuries earlier than the standard view today.

Mahoney combines a vivid retelling of the biblical story with interviews of top authorities from both sides of the debate in an investigation spanning the ancient and modern worlds. His bold new approach identifies six primary steps of the Exodus account before looking for evidence matching these steps wherever it exists in Egypt‘s history. The results are startling and could fundamentally transform the way the world views history and the Bible.

Friendship Lesson for the Kiddos! #HalloweenTract

If you’ve never enjoyed the challenge of teaching children week after week, you may not quite get how big of a challenge it is.  However, if you have children you definitely get it.  Whether you are looking for non-scary ways to celebrate Halloween with your children or simply want an alternative to the traditional, I’ve found a great Halloween Tract to ‘hand out’ or just to get to teach your own children.  Let the Little Children Come has some awesome products, I especially love these little pumpkins they have!

This little craft product has so many great lessons!  Is there anything better than candy?  With the inside of each panel of the pumpkin comes a message that s essential for our children and ourselves!  It can be a challenge to come up with new and interesting projects.  This one is perfect for Halloween, Thanksgiving, or anytime for the Fall!  Perfect time to get yours ordered so that you are ready when September gets here!Friendship Lesson for the Kiddos!

Good friends listen to each other!

Have the children take turns with a ‘friendship item’ telling one thing they like about themselves.  This has two purposes; it builds the child up while teaching the children to find good things about others.

Next, ask the children to say something they like about another child.  In order to avoid everyone picking the same person, I suggest having the sit across from one another; definitely consider splitting up the children from their ‘normal’ group of friends, and having them pick something about the child across from them.

Making this quick and fun will help ensure that the kids maintain attention.  As you begin a craft or some other fun project, challenge the kids to try extra hard to listen to what people say when they speak.  You have no planted the best seed to help the children get on track to listen to others!

This little game goes perfect with the adorable little pumpkins featured and they are the perfect Segway into the lesson taught inside each side of the craft.  There are so many wonderful ways this fun little game can teach valuable lessons!

Looking for more great lessons for the little ones?  Or for the little one in you?  Check out what optical illusions can teach you!  If all this fun doesn’t lower your stress, this will so have some fun and enjoy life!

Feeling Lucky? @LugzNYC & an Herbal Foot Soak!

Shoes are absolutely awesome and most days I really like wearing them and then there are other days. Unfortunately, nobody lets me go barefoot and frankly I’ve seen the bottom of my feet after running through a parking lot and I really do not love that.  However, since society and filth dictate the necessity for me to wear shoes,  at least I feel like I’m barefoot sometimes. Let’s face it, our feet are made to walk.  *Queue the Boots are Made for Walking song to now be stuck in your head.  Your welcome. LOL*

My new Lugz Seabrooks are a great break from the dress shoes that I have to wear to work sometimes. They make me feel like I’m not wearing shoes at all sometimes except my feet are protected and stay clean. LOL Isn’t that nice? With the canvas on the outside, they are easy to wipe clean which makes them perfect for any kind of chores!  I love that I can work in the garden in them, hose them down and dry them in the dryer then wear them again with nearly anything!  Lugz Seabrook’s can go from the playground and casual dress to (in the right color) business in just a dusting of a hand towel and a change of clothes!  

Ahh, promotional items!  I did get these for free in exchange for this review.  However, my opinion is my own.  To that note, here are the things I don’t like…  Typically, I wear running shoes.  I always have.  This is the very first pair of shoes I have ever owned in this type.  It takes some time for your feet to adjust if you don’t normally wear shoes without support.  That’s it.  That’s my only complaint.  That being said, I will definitely be getting more shoes in this style in the future.  While they won’t be the shoes I wear for walks and runs, they will definitely be on my feet quitte frequently!

After a long day at work or play, we should all find a way to treat ourselves.  So, below is a fabulous way to make a simple foot bath to soak your feet in and relieve emotional stress at the same time!  What could be better after a long day when time is of the essence?

Hate your big feet?  Here’s a little tidbit I came across that I thought I would share.  The Karo Batik people of Indonesia find larger feet far more sexy, but then perhaps they aren’t bombarded with media telling them what to think!  So, ladies and gentlemen, perhaps if media didn’t control our opinions as if we were sheep we would all be loving big feet!  Until then, that’s a thought to keep in our arsenal!  I have big feet, I say it’s because I’m so tall I need the help with my balance.

Need an amazing foot soak? Check the Herbal Foot Bath below!  Catch Lugz on their SiteFacebook, Instagram & Twitter for awesome updates & more!

Not enough time for a full soak? My suggestion is to make the mixtures in something you can seal, then wipe down your feet and prop them up for a while!

Turkey Day Giveaway Hop

Can you believe that Thanksgiving is just a few short weeks away?

Now is the time when we all start thinking about our Thanksgiving Feasts and Black Friday Shopping sprees. Anderson’s Angels, This Mamas Life, The More The Merrier and Woven by Words, are very excited to help give you a jump start on your Christmas shopping! We’ve teamed up with over 20 other wonderful bloggers, to bring you another great giveaway event! Each blog has gathered a prize package of $25 or more for The Turkey Day Giveaway Event!growing-up-at-the-flower-shoppeWhen I was a little girl, my Granny opened her own flower shop, Cathy’s Flowers and Gifts.  She opened it with plenty of handmade, amazing items.  My Pa-Pa would do the woodwork and my Granny would paint each one by hand.  To me, each piece had so much love in them.  They were beautiful and I greatly wish I had some of those pieces in my home today.

My cousin and I would go to the shop with Granny quite often.  We would ‘work’ by filling balloons with sand to anchor balloon bouquets and stuff and seal envelopes for whatever purpose they served.  We would ‘earn’ our lunch and get to go across the street by ourselves on our lunch break, we were very grown up you see.  We also had the privilege of eating way more Hershey’s Kisses than our parents knew about or desired to allow us to have.  LOL.  To this day, I absolutely love those little things!  They are definitely my kryptonite!

Almost 30 years later, Granny’s shop has grown and morphed.  The little shop she had now has three florists and even does events!  No longer does Granny & Pa-Pa make so much of the merchandise by hand and the name has changed to Cathy’s Flowers and Events but the love that one feels in that shop is still the same.

cathys-flowers-and-eventsI’ve had the privilege of helping to decorate very elegant houses for the holidays, assist in decorating and staffing some of the most beautiful weddings ever.  My favorite Uncle is the owner now and he is also an award winning florist who is amazingly talented!  I love helping him, even when he goes all neurotic stressed out crazy during events and Valentine’s Day.  LOL.  Don’t worry, only the staff and family get to see that side of him.  LOL

So, in homage to my awesome family and their amazing talent, I gave away to one  lucky winner a $30 gift code to order flowers from FTD!  It’s time to decorate for Thanksgiving and I’ve got some amazing examples they were willing to share from Cathy’s so I hope you enjoy the eye candy!  If you are ever in the region, it’s worth a drive to pick up some awesome flowers and decor for your home or even as gifts!  You can also check them out on Facebook.

5 Easy Ways to Avoid Dings On Your Car, A Quick and Easy Fix Sponsored By #ChipEx

full-chipex-paint-kitTo many of us, our vehicle is an extension of ourselves.  Our personality, tastes and lifestyle plays a huge part in which type of vehicle we choose to drive.  The Chief absolutely loves classic Toyota Camrys.  I’m not real certain why, other than he says it’s a tank (and it really does seem to be) and it’s incredibly safe.  He actually spent a few years searching for just the right one and when he found it, he was super disappointed to realize that it was in Virginia.  We live in Arkansas, so that’s very far away!  But, as I’m sure you know, I love him very much so I packed 2 of my Monkeys and we took off on a road trip.  It was a great drive and a fabulous road trip!  We had so much fun, even got to try out Skinny Pop Popcorn on the way!   We got it home to him with no issues, it was fabulous and he was elated.

Fast forward a few years, life has taken it’s toll and it now has a paint chip taken out thanks to some lovely person dinging the door.  I don’t know why, but for whatever reason that car seems to have a big red flashing light telling every other car to attack it.  LOL.  But again, it’s a tank, so it doesn’t dent easily.  As a matter of fact, after being rear ended on 5 separate occasions, it still has no dents!  It does have that paint chip though, and a nice sized blue scuff from a door hitting it.  So when Chipex approached me about their paint chip repair service, I LEAPED at the chance!  A DIY that could get rid of my husbands paint chip, why yes, thank you!

full-chipex-paint-kitIn order to obtain the correct color, you have to match your paint.  For Chief’s car, I looked up the paint color from the manufacturer.  Unfortunately, I forgot that it had been repainted, so the color is slightly off.  On the bright side, it’s white so You really can’t tell unless you either know or look closely.  The directions for the product were simple and easy to follow and I was completely finished within 20 minutes.

Aside from having to wash your car before you apply it, everything was in the kit.  The directions were very clear and simple to follow.  As you can see from the picture, it did very well to help with the chip.  However, it was not very helpful on the skid mark on the door.  I do believe if I get a paint brush that I can do a better job and plan to do so in the future.  Overall, I really liked ChipEx.  It was a simple way to fix small chips in the paint without having to either just live with it or go and get a new paint job.   chipex

In addition, they also sent me Screen Wash.  While I haven’t had the opportunity to try it out yet, I am looking forward to doing so!  I’m hoping it helps this fall!  It says that it’s professional grade and given the quality of the paint, I do not doubt that claim.

5 Easy Ways to Help Prevent Dings on Your Vehicle

  1. Teach the Monkeys!  When I was a kid, we were taught not to touch cars, to be careful with things around the car and to take very good care of it.  Teaching the kiddos to respect vehicles (and of course all property) will not only start them on the right track, but it could be what inspires them NOT to throw a ball towards the vehicle!
  2. Parking far Away.  While it can be a pain to walk further, remember that people are less likely to park beside you and ding your car if you park further back in the parking lot.  When I was a child my parents had a show car, they always parked as far away from anyone else as possible when they went to stores.  We had to walk, but it was good exercise!  These days, it seems like we are seeking out ways to walk more since everything is so sedentary, so you’ll get an added bonus with this one!
  3. Look and guesstimate how far the door on the car beside you will open.  If it’s close enough to hit easily, you may want to park elsewhere.
  4. Glance in for car seats in the car next to you.  We need space to put the little ones in cars so we often have to extend the door in order to get them secured.  If there is a car seat, make sure they have more than enough room to leave the door open while strapping the little ones in without hitting your car.  If not, you probably should move to another space.
  5. Look at the height of the vehicle you are parking next to, if it is another vehicle similar in height to yours and if your car has protective rubber door moldings those moldings may protect your car’s doors, but SUV’s and truck doors are taller and may cause dents higher than your moldings can protect, move to another spot.

 ChipEx has generously offered to give one lucky winner a ChipEx Bundle!  It would make an awesome Christmas gift for that car lover in your life!
