Depend Drop Your Pants

Okay, okay, let's be honest moms.  After having our wonderful children, our bodies just are not the same, right?  Not just on the outside, but on the inside too.  You know that times when your kids do something so hilarious that as you are laughing with your children, you feel a little bladder leakage.  Then your children get sick and since you work hard at teaching them how to share, they give you their colds and you find yourself sneezing and coughing.  There it is again…bladder leakage.  Chasing them on the playground, jump roping, and playing kickball with them, more bladder leakage.  It can be embarrassing to admit it, but we have to realize…We are not alone!

Did you know?

* More people with bladder leakage are in their 20's than their 80's
* The average age of someone with bladder leakage is only 52!
*More people with bladder leakage are 50 and younger compared to over 60!

One of the products that you could use is Depend Silhouette Active Fit.   These briefs are a new moderate absorbency brief that features a thin design for complete comfort with the trusted protection of the Depend brand.

*Depend Silhouette Active Fit briefs have a lower rise for an underwear-like look, fit and feel.
*Depend Silhouette Active Fit is available in black and beige colors 
* You can purchase the small/medium sizes in 4 count or 12 count
and the large/xlarge in 4 count or 10 count packages

Depend Drop Your Pants for Underwareness is entering year 2!  This is a social movement and charitable cause to break down the bladder leakage stigma.  This movement is encouraging people to show their support for women with bladder leakage.  For every photo and video shared using #Underwareness and featuring Depend products, the Depend brand will donate $1, up to $3 million, through 2016 to fund charities that advance the research and education of bladder leakage.

Why don't you try it for yourself.  Request a free sample.

Dial Miracle Oil Hand Soap

(Disclosure:  I received this product from Purex Insiders in order to facilitate my review.  All opinions shared are my own.)

A while back I got to try the new Dial Miracle Oil Body Wash.  I absolutely loved it.  My skin felt so soft and moisturized and smells amazing.  When I received the new Dial Miracle Oil hand soap, I knew I would love this product too.  Of course the day I received this, I immediately opened it up and washed my hands.  My hands felt so soft and moisturized after using this!  It has a nice scent to it.  This will be a product that I will have extra under the sink!  I love the Dial brand itself.  They are always very reasonably priced and it is a brand that I trust that will work  well for our family!  They can be bought at just about any store.

About the product:

Motivate Your Child: A Christian Parent's Guide

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

As a mom of three young boys growing up to be young men, I find myself repeating directions often.  One of my children gives up quickly when things go wrong.  I have been looking for and reading a bunch of resources to try to help motivate them to do what is right.  I requested this book from BookLookBloggers because I knew that it would be full of resources.  Some of the things I read in this book were eye opening things that I was doing that was holding my children back.  One of which is rewarding something they should be doing anyways.  "Clean your room and you can have a piece of candy" is something that I say often, but what I am teaching them is they should only do things if they get rewarded for it instead of doing something because it's what they should be doing anyways.  This book offers practical advice every parent should learn!  I love that this book is based off of christian standards with Biblical advice.  This is a great book for parents of all ages and stages!

About the book:

Parenting experts Scott Turansky and Joanne Miller demonstrate how God's word gives us the best way to parent, one that builds strong internal motivation in children.  When parents change the way they parent, kids changes the way they live.  This practical book explores a theology of internal motivation and then gives parents real-life solutions to equip their kids for life.

You'll learn:
 * how to parent in ways that build internal motivation so kids don't have to rely on you to get things done.
*  the four promptings of the conscience and how to coordinate your parenting to take advantage of them.
*  ways to energize your spiral training with fun and creativity
*  how to help children respond to mistakes instead of blaming, defending, or justifying

This is a great resource for every family!

The Leadership Handbook

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

I am a quiet person who would never had thought I would be in a leadership position.  Now, you can find me as a Children's Church leader.  Being a leader isn't just about being the head person of something, but it is about knowing your own qualities and weakness and how you can grow yourself so that you can lead others.  In John C. Maxwell's book The Leadership Handbook: 26 Critical Lessons Every Leader Needs is an amazing book that has taught me so much about myself first, and then as a leader.  The 26 lessons that he talks about each offers it's own qualities every leader should know.  This book is great for anyone in a leadership position anywhere.

About the book:

New York Times best-selling author and leadership expert John Maxwell offers practical insight into learning how to lead the person who matters most-yourself.

The path to leadership begins with a question only few of us ask:  How do I lead myself?  John Maxwell presents 26 insights, not just for those who aspire to positions of leadership but also for veteran leaders who aim to build and improve upon the steps that led them to the front of the line.

Sound leadership will impact any endeavor, but sound leaders are prepared for risk-and importantly, failure, just as they point the way toward achievement.  With application exercises and a "Mentoring Moment" to accompany each chapter, The Leadership Handbook presents a road map for a path many may cross but few choose to follow.  "A leader", counsels Maxwell, "never has to recover from a good start."

Show your Disney Side

(Disclosure:  I received a promotion package in order to host this party.  All opinions shared are my own.)

Last year, I was given the opportunity to host a DisneySide party.  This year, I was excited to be able to host another one.  The package I received this year was Disney Cars themed.  My sister has a son who was having a birthday party at the beginning of March, and she is super creative so I actually gave her my kit and let her have fun with the decorations and let her show her Disney Side.  I was amazed at her creativity and everything that she came up with.  It was an awesome birthday party!  She did a better job than I would have.

Grab a few bags of chocolate donuts and you have some "Spare Tires"

Some trail mix for "Nut's and Bolt's"

Use some twirlers for "Mater's Tow Cables"

Add some M&M's to some brownies for traffic lights!

Cute cupcakes

Grab some Lighting McQueen paper goods

Wonderfully decorated Birthday Cake

She also had some great games like, Getting a spare tire and some bean bags and have the children throw the bean bags into the tire!  Tape the teeth on Mater and she had a Cars piƱata.  My kids had a blast seeing all the fun food decorations and playing the games.  I know my nephew enjoyed his Cars cake.  She definitely did a wonderful job showing her Disney Side and I enjoyed going to this party!

Zonderkidz Easter Giveaway

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

 Easter is coming and it is time to start filling your children's baskets!  My kids normally get some toys around a theme that they are into right now.  But, I also love putting books into my children's baskets because I want my children to have a love of reading and you can never have too many books!  I especially love putting books that have Christian values in them.  I received three books and I will be putting into my children's Easter baskets.

My youngest child will be received the book The First Easter Ever.  This book is great for young readers who are young readers.  There are bright colorful pictures on every page to help illustrate what is written.  This book talks about the before, during and after the crucifixion of Jesus in a way that the children can understand!  Great book.

My middle son will be receiving the NIV Gift Bible.  He has been asking for his own Bible, since his got lost in our recent move.  So this opportunity came at the right time.  This isn't a children's Bible but it is a great Bible to have.  It is pretty.  The colors are boyish so he will love this.  The writing is a little small but still easily read.

My oldest son, who is not a teen yet, (I'm not rushing it either) will be receiving the NIV Teen Study Bible.  He has said many times that he doesn't want a child's bible anymore because he is growing up so this is the perfect gift for him.  I love the little facts, questions, and thoughts that are throughout this Bible.  It helps them to really dig into the Bible in a more mature way!

Guess what?!?!  I am having a giveaway and one winner will receive all 3 of the books mentioned in this post!  This would be great for a family with kids in multiple age ranges.  Just enter below on the rafflecopter form!

March in Frozen Food month Giveaway

(Disclosure:  I received coupons for this product.  All opinions shared are my own.)

Did you know that March is Frozen Food month?  I could honestly say that I did not.  I was contacted by Kidfresh to help spread the news.  KidFresh is a company that I met while I was at the WowSummit last fall.  I was given the opportunity to taste a few of their products while there.  I was surprised at how well they taste.  When I was sent the coupons, I went on a mission to find these products.  I went to one store who only had the Macaroni product.  So I got that and had my children taste it and they liked it.  I like that it is made with real cheese and not powder stuff.  They were hesitant at first because we don't normally eat frozen food.  Then I went onto the Kidfresh site and found their store locator and was able to find a Target down the road that had more of a variety.  

The four products that I bought at Target was the Muy Cheesy Quesodilla, Super Duper Chicken Nuggets, Mighty Meaty Chicken Meatballs, and the Fun-tastic Fish Sticks.  All of the KidFresh meals are made with 100% Natural ingredients and even have some veggies that are snuck into the food.  I have tried a bite off all of the products I used my coupons on and I can't taste any veggie.  All of the products taste really good and I had no complaints from my picky children.

So now you can rest assured that your children are eating healthy during this National Frozen Food Month!  These are priced very reasonably.

One super lucky winner will receive 10, yes you read that right 10, coupons to try this product for your family!  So awesome!!!
