Ozeri CardioTech Pro Series BP5K Digital Blood Pressure Monitor

(Disclosure:  I received this product in order to facilitate my review.  All opinions shared are my own and were not persuaded in any way.)

Over a year ago I was diagnosed with Dilated Cardiomyopathy.  Simply put, I have heart disease.  One of the many things that I have to do on a daily basis to monitor my condition is taking my blood pressure.  The machine I had quit working and since then I have been searching for a replacement one. I found that replacement!  Ozeri CardioTech Pro Series Blood Pressure Monitor is a perfect addition to my products!

When I opened the box, I noticed that it comes in a great hard-shelled compact case.  I love that.  Makes traveling with it easier because I won't have to worry about it getting messed up in the hard case.    It is a small machine so it doesn't take a lot of room.  This device goes on your wrist and not on your upper arm.   This blood pressure machine is voice guided.  It helps you to be sure that it is in the right location and if your wrist is too high or too low.  It tells you if your blood pressure is too high or too low or ideal.

I love the memory storage!  I was writing down all of my readings in a notebook but always forgot to bring it to the doctor appointments, but since this machine is small enough to put in my purse, I can just bring it with me to my appointment and go through the memory to show my cardiologist.  The display is large enough for anyone to see and is very clear to read everything.  The Ozeri CardioTech Blood Pressure Monitor is one that I will recommend to all the women in my heart support group.

Noah stats

(Disclosure:  I was given the numbers below to share with my readers.  Any opinions shared are my own.)

With the new movie Noah coming out last week, there have been controversy about it.  People have wondered how Biblical is it really and many other issues.  While I haven't been able to see it yet, I am looking forward to watching it for myself and getting my own opinion.  All of this controversy has done its job though!

The Bible App YouVersion has posted on their Twitter and their Facebook pages that people are reading the Bible to check the facts! The story of Noah in Genesis 6 has gone up 300% in the US and 245% worldwide.

Check out the Music Video with quotes about the movie on GodTube.

TwigTale Giveaway

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

I was contacted by TwigTale asking me to do a review on their books.  I looked through their books and was amazed as to the options that I could make.  I told them I would love to work with them and they gave me credit to build my own book.  I found that my kids were a bit too old for some of the topics, so I was glad to see that you can make your own book from scratch!  I decided to make a Brotherly Love book.  I found some pictures of my kids together and found a bunch of brotherly sayings on the internet and used them to make the pages.  I intentionally left some of the pages empty so that as they grow together I can add some more pictures to the book.  What I love is that the company contacted me asking if that was intentional or accidental.  That made me feel like they care about their customers and they want the books made to order!  That's a plus.  The shipping was super quick, I believe I received it in 2-3 days.  The book is made wonderfully.  The pages are beautiful and the pictures came out clear and not blurry or crooked.  This book is something that I definitely recommend to any parents!

How does TwigTale work?

TwigTale is really easy to use.  You choose the book that you want to make.  Then it gives you a list of pictures that you will need for that book.  Upload all of the pictures that you want you to use in your book.  As you make your book, you click and drag your pictures into it.  Add your own words. Preview it. Then order it!  It really is that simple.  The hardest part for me was choosing which pictures that I wanted to use.   Each book cost $20 and shipping is $5.50.

Win It!

One lucky winner of mine will receive a $20 credit to the website to make your own book.  The only thing you will have to pay is the shipping which is super cheap!  Just enter below on the rafflecopter form.

OxiClean Laundry Detergent

(Disclosure:  I received this product from Smiley360.  All opinions shared are mine.)

When I say OxiClean you probably don't think of laundry detergent do you?  I know I didn't at first.  I always associated OxiClean with the booster you add to the detergent.  Well, they now make laundry detergent!!  This detergent is great.  I have been using this for about 2 weeks now and my loads of laundry are coming out clean, fresh, and nicely scented.  This got some grass stains out of my son's pants.  The cap has a few lines to measure to so you can determine how much you need for your load.  The scent is not over-powering.  I always pour the detergent in the machine first so that the water can get soapy before adding clothes and the detergent mixes up real well.

About OxiClean Laundry Detergent:

It's the news your clothes have been waiting for-OxiClean, America's #1 stain-fighting additive brand, now brings you a laundry detergent!  Powered by three color-safe OxiClean stain-fighters, the triple enzyme formula helps break down and remove a wide range of tough, dried-on stains.  Use it on all of your laundry to get brilliant whites and vivd brights.  Try new OxiClean laundry detergent and get a deep clean inside and out.

Inscribed Bible Studies

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

 I am always on the lookout for a great new bible study for me to do by myself.  I think it is important to keep my relationship with God strong and studying His word is one of the ways to do that.  I was introduced to the new Inscribed Series of Bible Studies.  I received 4 of the titles in this series:  Living so That by Wendy Blight, Leaving Ordinary by Donna Gaines, Amazed and Confused by Heather Zempel and Dive Deeper by Jennifer Jernigan.  Each of these titles has so much to offer the reader.  I started with and am currently working on the Dive Deeper study.  I have learned so much on how to study the Bible.  This study goes into a deeper study of the Bible and it encourages you to really get into it.  I could see all of these books being used within a women's Bible Study group.  I can't wait to get into the other 3 studies in this series.

So what is the Inscribed Series about?

The InScribed Collection is for any woman with a passion for God.  Each title touches on a subject matter unique to the needs and issues that women face everyday.  Whether used individually, in small accountability groups, or in larger discussion groups, women will be challenged to engage their entire person in the study and can expect life change.

Nature Girl Book

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

I received the book Nature Girl to review.   I have a niece that I am giving this book to.  I know she will enjoy going through this book and doing some of the fun activities in there.  Nature Girl is full of crafts, recipes, recycling, gardening, and many more different activities that a girl can do by herself or with her mom, aunt, grandparent, etc.  As I was going through this book I found a lot of things that I myself think would be fun to do.  There are pictures through out the book, but they are not in color.  I love how this book isn't just another nature craft book, but it ties God into all of the chapters and activities as well.

About Nature Girl:

Written by mother-daughter duo Karen Whiting and Rebecca White, this fun, activities based book for girls ages 9-12 focuses on caring for our earth and the environment, helping girls appreciate God's creations and understanding our responsibilities in caring for what God has given us.  Learn about going green from a Christian perspective.
