Wherever the River Runs by Kelly Minter Review & Giveaway!

Wherever The River Runs by Kelly Minter I dream of one day being able to go on a mission for the Lord. A mission where I am able to go to a foreign country and help those who have a need unlike anything I have ever known. That is exactly what Kelly Minter was able to do in Wherever the River Runs. In this book you will be taken on a journey with Kelly through the Amazon. In this book you will read about the wonderful people she met and the stories about how her and her friends helped those around her. Truly inspiring. But of course just as you would expect this book also has a much deeper meaning. How could you not make a visit to the jungles of the Amazon and not come home a changed person? Can you imagine being taken from your comforts of home? Seeing people around you who live on dirt floors? Who are lucky to have a home? Who live with their homes getting flooded half the year? To see children working hard to help feed their families? It is beautiful to see how the Lord works his … [Read more...]

Edible Plant Cell – Home Schooling Fun!

Edible Plant Cell

Edible Plant Cell - Home Schooling Fun! I love home schooling my daughter. We enjoy learning together and also coming up with fun crafts or recipes to make her learning experience more hands on and fun. Recently we were studying about plant cells. I thought it would be fun to actually make a plant cell that we could eat. My daughter loved that idea and immediately sat down with a pen and paper to come up with her ideas and a grocery list. This was fun and educational because my daughter had to look at each feature of a plant cell and pick and choose what items would work best and actually look like they do in real life. For example she decided that the Golgi Body looked more like string candy and the Nucleus looked more round like a hard cinnamon candy. Of course after making the list of candy and sweets my daughter could not wait to make this tasty plant cell model. So we rushed out to the store and purchased our extensive list of sweet goodies. When we got home … [Read more...]

I will never forget my first experience with The Sims Series. I was introduced to Sims. I was at a friends house, 13 years old and board. She asked me if I wanted to play this new game on her computer that her parents got for her and her siblings. It was called The Sims. I was of course willing because...well...I did not get to play computer games at home. As soon as she introduced me to The Sims I was hooked. I was able to take my creativity to a whole new level by building and creating a  little town to take care of. I used to go to her house on a daily basis so I could plant new crops, harvest and sell. I loved it.   A few months after I was introduced to The Sims my parents decided to break down and purchase a Sims game for my brothers and I. I guess they got tired of hearing about how much I loved … [Read more...]

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. Save An Average of $240 Per Year With Parent's Choice Diapers! The picture below represents the day my life would change forever. The day my daughter was born was a rush of mixed emotions. I was thrilled, happy, scared, apprehensive and over joyed. I did not know what to expect, if I would make a good Mom......if I would ever be the same! From the moment my eyes looked upon my daughter I felt the true feeling of unconditional love. Parenting my daughter was not the only thing that was new to me as a new mom. I also did not have a clue how much money I would spend on her throughout her life. Especially in those first few years with diapers, baby food, wipes, special detergents, formula, baby shampoo, lotions etc... Let's face it! We love these little bundles of joy...but they are not cheap! Of course as a new Mom I wanted the best for my child but I learned really early on in … [Read more...]

Thunder - Stone Braide Chronicles - Bonnie S. Calhoun Giveaway Ends 9/19/14 Oh my goodness! Let's just say I will be stocking the authors web site until the next book it out!! Totally a 5 star rating! A copy of Thunder - Stone Braide Chronicles was mailed to me for the purpose of this review. When it arrived I was not sure what to expect. All I knew of the book is what I had seen on the trailer. I must say that the trailer had me intrigued. So much so that I will now give you time to watch it! :) Now I bet that got your attention! Thunder - Stone Braide Chronicles takes place in the future. A future very unlike our own. It seems that over a hundred years ago there was a nuclear bomb set off in the U.S. The book revolves around the relatives of the survivors. It seems that even after 150 years there are still lots of ramifications. For example limited food sources due to radiation poisoning in the animals and water streams. The people no longer have today's technology and have … [Read more...]

** I was provided with a Wikki Stix Piggy Bank for the purpose of this review. However, my own opinion was used and not influenced in any way. Wikki Stix Designer Piggy Bank‏ Review   I was first introduced to Wikki Stix six years ago when I went to a local Mexican Restaurant. As we sat down the waitress handed my daughter a coloring page and a package of what we assumed was crayons. We were wrong. It was a little package of Wikki Stix. There was a dot-to-dot on the paper that my daughter was handed and you were supposed to connect the numbers with these colorful little Wikki Stix. My daughter fell in love instantly and so did I! A few months later at Christmas time my Mother in Law (who had been with us at the restaurant) remembered how much my daughter loved the Wikki Stix. So she went out and purchased my daughter a HUGE kit of them. My daughter was glowing after opening up her Wikki Stix gift. Since then she has made numerous designs and creations with these … [Read more...]
