I have been listening to Christmas music since before Thanksgiving.  I could listen to Christmas music all year long and now that I have Amy Grant's Christmas album, Tennessee Christmas, I actually can now.  I have listened to Amy Grant growing up.  I remember how much I liked her music and it hasn't changed.  This album brings back childhood memories with her comforting voice. There are 13 songs on this album and while I love them all, I would chose Melancholy Christmas as my favorite.

Here is the song list:
-Tennessee Christmas
-To Be Together
-Christmas For You and Me
-Melancholy Christmas
-December
-White Christmas
-Joy to the World
-I've Got My Love to Keep Me Warm
-Baby, It's Cold Outside
-Christmas Don't Be Late
-Still Can't Sleep
-Another Merry Christmas
-O Come, All Ye Faithful

Take a listen for yourself:




Now, here is something fun and amazing that they are doing:

They are asking for fans to upload any videos they may have of them surprising loved ones for the holidays to social media.  Those chosen will be part of a compilation video that Amy herself will share on her large social media outlets!  Just use the hashtag #TNChristmasSurprise


Buy the album here: Tennessee Christmas


Or win it!  One lucky winner will receive their very own copy of this album.

Stock Up and Save Big with OREO




I absolutely love OREO cookies and so does my family.  I can purchase a pack of OREO's and it is usually gone within two days, so I like to stock up.  There are tons of different flavors in the OREO product line and you get to stock up on savings!  Go to your local Walmart and look for their OREO display.  Decide what yummy goodness flavor that you want.  The packages will have a .50 coupon that you can use at checkout.  Stack it with the Ibotta offer for another .50 back, making the OREO cookies 1.98!  So get off your couch, go to your local Walmart and stock up on cookies!
Using Ibotta is super simple.  Just download the app onto your phone.  After you get home from shopping, open the app up and choose the store you shopped from.  In this case, it is Walmart.  Scroll through the products until you find the OREO cookies.  Unlock it, then snap a picture of the upc barcode and your receipt and get some money back.  I love using Ibotta and have already received a lot of money back in just a few months of using this app.  






Now after you have done all of that, open the package, grab a nice cold glass of milk and start dunking!  There are lots of recipes you could make with OREO's or save some for Santa!

Raising an Original

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


I have three young men.  All three of them are so uniquely different.  I want to raise them all to be who God called them to be so reading this book, Raising an Original by Julie Lyles Carr is a great resource that has helped me in raising them.  I learned that I can't parent them all the same, but I have to do different things to get through each of them separately to help them become who they are.  Each of them have their own special talents and I want them to use them and be confident in being an original.  The assessment really opened my eyes to how I parent these young men.  This book is a must have for every parent.  

About this book:

Most Christian parents are bombarded with all kinds of advice and plans and programs for how to be a great parent.  in parenting eight kids over the last 25 years, Julie Lyles Carr and her husband experienced plenty of opportunity for learning, but it was when they began to understand it was about parenting each child according to their own unique needs and personality style that something wonderful happened.  

In Raising an Original, Carr helps to redefine the primary purpose of Christian parenting, this raising of the next generation.  God has given each of our children specific gifts, abilities and capacities for specific purposes and He can equip parents to discover and support those powerful personality traits if they know where to look and how to respond.  So many kids raised in Christian homes launch into their adult lives without any sense of knowing who they are called to be or what their mission on earth is.  What if parents, teachers or mentors could help them discover the wondrous, unique threads woven within them that will enable them to see their part in the fabric of God's universe?

Readers of Raising an Original will be equipped to help their children:
Understand their unique strengths and the challenges associated with them 
Discover their God-given gifts and how to use them for His glory
Succeed regardless of their circumstances

Raising an Original will provide readers with tools for better communication with their children as well as tools for uniquely guiding and disciplining each unique child.  With a helpful and detailed Personality Trait Assessment Tool included as a major part of the book, readers will understand themselves, their parenting style, and their child better.  They will also discover ways to improve their children's communication within sibling groups and with parents themselves.

Readers will find freedom in discovering that God hasn't asked them to raise perfect children; He's asked them to uniquely raise purposed children.

EQtainment

(Disclosure:  I received these products below in order to review.  All opinions are my own.)


EQtainment sent me a party package along with Tryazon.  While this looks like it is geared toward teaching younger children, my children are a little bit older and they like this.  I love the questions that really get them thinking.  The board game: Q's Race to the Top is a fun way to get the kids thinking about manners and social skills, while being a little competitive.  With 3 boys there is always competition, so why not make it useful.  The little tin is perfect to ask questions on the go.  The questions consist of:
You, Q, and Do questions which help promote the following:
-social and emotional skills
-feeling identification
-self-control
-creative thinking
-coordination and balance

With these questions there is no right or wrong answers.  It is truly helping the kids to expand their thinking.  I really love this game and the value that this brings to the kids.
