Charm Bracelet are crazy popular.  I now have multiple bracelets that once belonged to my Great Grandmother, while they weren’t charms they started my love for jewelry, specifically bracelets.  I personally have so many charms that I can’t even wear them on one bracelet anymore but I still keep getting them as each one has a meaning to me. I could sit and tell you every single meaning for every single one, it just special and I only get a charm for special reasons.

Let the Little Children Come has a charm bracelet that is perfect for children!  It is full of charms meant to represent the love, forgiveness, and kingdom of God while serving as a reminder when worn.  I know that I would have loved to have one of these as a little girl and I know plenty of little girls now who would love to have one. They’re certainly on my Christmas list for my nieces!  They are inexpensive, which is especially great since little ones tend to lose things.  Plus, there is plenty of room to add more charms just like Mommy, Auntie and Grammy does!

The Enamel Charms Salvation Bracelet comes with 5 charms:

  1. Yellow Palace meant to remind us of Heaven.
  2. Stained Heart meant to remind us of sin and forgiveness.

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.

Difference Between Surviving & Getting Through #everymilemattered #flyby

The Nichole Nordeman may be my anthem for a while.  A great reminder, one which literally sings a reminder that while things may not be fabulous, we are making it.  I don’t know if I am in a place for all of her music to speak to me, but Every Mile Mattered by Nichole Nordeman is just the album for where I am right at this moment.  A bit of inspiration, without any message being thrown in my face, just a selection of songs that remind us to go on, that we aren’t doing terribly.  To be honest, I can’t listen to prosperity Christian music anymore.  If you think God won’t allow us to carry more than we can bare, you’ve clearly been very lucky because I promise you, He will.  One might argue that I’ve gotten through, or am getting through, but those people don’t know the difference between surviving and living.  As a survivor, I carry more than I can bare each and every day, pulling me down to the depths of sorrow by things I didn’t even know were there.  Yet I go on, usually at something resembling an army crawl, because I have no choice.  He gave me more than I could bare, I don’t know what He has in store next but I’m still breathing.

I definitely recommend checking out Nichole Nordeman, especially if you are like me and are drowning under the burden.  We have to do whatever we can to keep moving, giving up is not an option.

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!

YouCopia Kitchen Organization

 

Over the stove spice cabinets are a very common occurrence and seem like a good use for space.  Unfortunately, often having all of the spices on a flat surface that you are stretching to reach tends to cause the fun little issue of missing things and buying doubles.  It can also lead to plenty of frustration as we try to find some such spice or another.  The YouCopia SpiceSteps 4 Tiere Cabinet Spice Rack Organizer can help you to more efficiently use your space and save yourself time and frustration when searching for spices with this fabulous way to help with kitchen organization!  This seems like a win win to me!  And at a fabulous price, you really can’t turn it down!

Not only does this make your cabinets more functional, it also makes them much more pleasing to the eye!  I’m pretty certain that’s a perk to feng shui and such.  I know having an organized home make me feel better, I’m almost certain they will have the same effect for you!  The beauty is that it doesn’t take much work to get it there and takes even less effort to keep it there with these.

Another product I had the pleasure of adding to my organization needs is the YouCopia StoreMore Adjustable Bakeware Rack.  I chose to use it for my Tupperware lids as they may or may not be, and this is NOT a confession, a little out of control.  I was pleased to discover that it holds my lids well and in a much more organized fashion.  My only disappointment was that it wasn’t longer as I have deep cabinets and a ton of lids.  It is sturdy and adjustable, so you could use it to hold just about anything up, pots & pan lids or even plates would work well.  As you can see by the image, was designed to help with the organization of pots and pans.

Overall, I have been pleased with the 2 samples of YouCopia products that I received.  While the two I talked of were free of charge in exchange for this review, I will be purchasing some of their other products in the future.  I feel that they are quality products and definitely helpful in making things a little more functional and pleasing to the eye.  In addition, they are priced affordably and comparable to other brands.

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.
