God's Not Dead 2

(Disclosure:  I received the information below to share with my readers.)

My husband and I watched God's Not Dead and were inspired.  When I heard that there was going to be a part 2,  I got excited because I know that it is going to be awesome and I can't wait to go see it!  

About the Movie:

"What would you do if you shared your faith in Jesus Christ with someone?  And it was deemed illegal…

Would you be brace enough to take a stand in the public square knowing you could lost everything?'
David A.R. White "Rev. Dave"/God's Not Dead 2

God's Not Dead 2 is about taking a stand.  It's about courage and faith.  And it will ask each and every one of us to reflect-would we have the strength to fight for our right to share and express our beliefs no matter the cost?

The film's central theme of religious liberty is a hot topic being addressed in our classrooms, courtrooms and national news today.

God's Not Dead 2 is the sequel to the highest-grossing independent faith film of 2014.  The film stars Melissa Joan Hart, Jesse Metcalfe, Sadie Robertson and veteran actors Ray Wise, Jon Lindstrom, and Ernie Hudson.  The movie also includes special guest star Pat Boone and cameo performances from The Newsboys and Gov. Mike Huckabee.

Giant print Holy Bible

(Disclosure:  I received this Bible in order to facilitate my review.  All opinions shared are my own.)

How many times have you tried reading some of the Bibles out there only to find yourself squinting and pulling it close to your face?  Well, you don't have to do that anymore if you get the Giant Print Holy Bible.  The words in this bible are bigger than normal bible print making it really easy for you to read.  This would be great for early readers who are just learning to read, because the words are big enough to look at.  It would also be good for those with bad eyesight.  Being that the words are bigger, that means less words on a page, therefore making the Bible a little bit thicker in size, which is a good trade-off to be able to read it.  The NIrV version is also easier to understand than some other versions.

I love Psalm 51:10!

About this Bible:

A giant-print NIrV text Bible that will satisfy both early readers and adults looking for an easy-to-read text.  The Giant Print Holy Bible, NIrV combines ease of reading a single column text with a simple typeface, making it perfect for comfortable Bible reading and for bringing the Word of God into focus.

Gotta Bandage giveaway

(Disclosure:  I received the product below in order to facilitate my review.  All opinions are my own.)

I have three kids.  Three boys.  Three boys age 7-10!  With that being said, we have gone through 1,000's of bandaids in the last 10 1/2 years!  We have had stitches, staples, and broken fingers.  We could have our own room in the after hours urgent care center.  We have normally bought bandaids with well-known characters on it or just the basic brown bandages.  I found some really fun bandages that I know that my pre-teen son would love.  TXTpressions  are great bandaids that are fun to wear.  Not only are they fun, but they also stick well to keep the cuts and scrapes covered so that they can heal.  As a mom, how many times have you cut yourself only to find yourself having to sport a princess or a boyish bandaid?  These bandages could be a conversation piece if you wear it.  I have to stop my boys from taking these.  They want a bandage every time they have an itch just so they can get one of these!  I actually have a cut on my hand and I was wearing the LOL bandage.  Someone asked where I purchased these from because they love it.  I told them they are Gotta Bandage from First Aid Plus More.  There are a bunch of cool bandaids on their that kids will love!  They come in 20 count boxes and 8 piece tins that are very reasonably priced!  I am definitely going to be stocking up on these.

Win a box!  One lucky winner will receive a 20 count box of TXTpressions with the bandages pictured above.  Just enter below on the rafflecopter form.

Captive dvd giveaway ends 2/5

(Disclosure:  I received this dvd in order to facilitate my review.  All opinions shared are my own. )

Captive is a great movie.  I remember when I saw a trailer for it, I really wanted to see it.  So when I got the opportunity to review it, I took it.  I am glad that I was chosen.  This movie really drew me into it.  The storyline was intense and I couldn't walk away from it because I wanted to see what was going to happen.  The main actors did a great job portraying this true story.  This movie shows that even in your toughest times, turning to God is the best thing you can do.  I love that this film has faith built into it.  It seems like there are more christian based movies coming out and that is only a thing that God can make happen.  As good as this movie is, it is pretty intense at some parts so it is recommended for pre-teens and older.  I wouldn't let my 7 & 8 year olds watch it, but my 10 year old could.

Check out this trailer:

About the movie:

Based on a miraculous story about the power of faith, Captive is an "amazing, inspiring" drama about the spiritual collision of two lost souls, Brian Nichols (Golden Globe Nominee David Oyelowo), on the run from police and desperate to make contact with his newborn son, takes recently widowed mother Ashley Smith (Kata Mara) hostage in her own apartment.  Fearing for her life and desperately hoping to see her daughter again, she turns to Rick Warren's The Purpose Driven Life for guidance.  Ashley and her captor face a crossroads where they discover hope and light in the midst of despair in they moving film that Dick Rolfe, CEO, Dove Foundation hailed as "powerful."

Jesus Today Devotion Giveaway

(Disclosure:  I received this book in order to facilitate my review.  All opinions are my own.)

I love devotions for my sons.  I love for them to have different things to read and learn from.  Jesus Today has 150 devotions for children.  Each devotion has more than one verse on it, which is written out and a short verbiage that goes with the topic for the day.  They aren't in any date order, so they can be read in any order that the kids want. These aren't too deep and over the kids heads but they can get them thinking on their own and reading verses on a daily basis.  I really like that throughout the book are some inspirational quotes to break up the devotions.  This would be a good devotional to have the kids read and talk about in the car on the way to school.

About the book:

Jesus is the Friend who is always with you.  Jesus Today: Devotions for Kids will pour this powerful truth into your children's hearts as they learn that He knows everything about them and loves them more than they can imagine.  Each devotion is based on Scripture and is written as though Jesus is speaking directly to you, assuring that He is in control, that He is good, and that an amazing future awaits all who put their hope in Him.  Adapted from the ECPA 2013 Christian Book of the Year-winner Jesus Today, this devotional has the same themes as the adult version, as well as written-out scriptures.  It is a great choice for families to read and discuss during devotional time together.

Win this for your kids.  One lucky winner will receive their own Jesus Today devotional!
