Mandisa Out of the Dark CD Giveaway

May 22, 2017

Mandisa has a new CD release titled "Out of the Dark". It is a very personal look into her life and journey through depression. You really gain an understanding of her position with the tracks that include voice overs from friends phone calls trying to reach out to her. Every song is uplifting, upbeat, and typical Mandisa sound. The CD is a great testimony to the good work God does. 

 
Story Behind The Album:
 
 
 
 
Mandisa wrote her song “Overcomer” in 2013 to encourage her close friend Kisha, who was battling breast cancer. Mandisa really believed and prayed that God was going to heal her, but when Kisha went to be with Jesus in 2014, Mandisa’s foundation was shaken in a way she never expected. She fell into a deep pit of depression for close to 3 years, shutting out her friends, family and the rest of the world. Mandisa believes if she had kept going down that road she was on, she would not be here today… but God stepped in and lifted her out of that pit by using her close friends to communicate their love for her and God’s love for her. This album is Mandisa’s way of letting her fans into her story – it’s called 'Out Of The Dark' because that is exactly where God lifted her out of! 
 
Acoustic Video for "Unfinished”:
 
 
You can watch her talk openly about this on Good Morning America last week here: http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/video/mandisa-opens-overcoming-depression-47020463

A copy of Out of the Dark by Mandisa.

Make a Quick Smurf Hat and Swag Giveaway

April 5, 2017

This past weekend my family was invited to see a press release of the new Smurf movie The Lost Village. It inspired us to try our hand at making a quick and easy Smurf hat from a white t-shirt. 

In this fully animated, all-new take on the Smurfs, a mysterious map sets Smurfette and her best friends Brainy, Clumsy and Hefty on an exciting and thrilling race through the Forbidden Forest filled with magical creatures to find a mysterious lost village before the evil wizard Gargamel does. Embarking on a rollercoaster journey full of action and danger, the Smurfs are on a course that leads to the discovery of the biggest secret in Smurf history!

April 7, 2017
Rated PG

How to make the Smurf Hat:

Materials:

  • white t-shirt
  • pen
  • straight edge
  • sewing machine
  • hot glue
  • scissors

Directions:


1. Using the bottom edge of the t-shirt, place the side fold at the back of the head.  Wrap around your head to the front, do not stretch the shirt, and mark the spot.

 

draw curve
2. Lay the shirt flat, under the arm mark a small curve. I did so free-handed but you could definitely use a plate or glass to help draw the curve. 

 

draw line
3. From the mark you made at the bottom edge, draw a line up to the curve. 

 

sewing
4. Follow your drawn lines and sew inside the drawn line. This will give the hat a slightly tighter fit. 

 

sewn
I've sewn in a dark thread so you can see the shape but I would recommend you do so with a light colored thread. 

 

cut edge
5. Cut off the excess t-shirt from your sewn hat. I recommend about 1/4 of an inch.

 


inside out
6. Turn the hat inside out. Notice the seam is a bit longer than the rest.

 

cut sleeve
7. If you desire, you can cut the sleeve off and use it for stuffing the point of the hat. This is what we did. I would also recommend something lightweight to do so like filler or even newspaper.

 

stuff
8. Stuff the tip of the hat.

 

hot glue
9. If you notice in the movie the edge around their heads is rather rounded.
I folded up the seamed edge two times, using hot glue to hold it in place.
The sewn edge where it was a bit longer can get tucked in now and glued.

10. Now your hat is finished and ready to wear.

The Gospel of Mark DVD - Giveaway

March 17, 2017

While the word of God can be read and discussed as well as preached, often there can still be a disconnection with the word. Seeing a visual moving picture fills in so many details that are unsaid with the word. This makes for a better understanding of the landscape, the style of the day as well as societal actions we may not be aware of just by hearing or reading. This is the case with The Gospel of Mark.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
Following last year’s The Gospel of John comes the second installment in the renowned Gospel film series, The Gospel of Mark, arriving on DVD at Walmart, Digital HD and On Demand March 14 from Lionsgate. Just in time for Easter, the second book of The New Testament comes to life for the first time with a truly unique, word-for-word adaptation that uses the Gospel narrative as its script. Shot on location in Morocco with consultation from expert theologians and biblical scholars and produced by the Lumo Project, the film was given the Dove Faith Friendly Seal for 12+. The Gospel of Mark DVD is packed with behind-the-scenes bonus features and will be available for the suggested retail price of $14.98.
 
OFFICIAL SYNOPSIS
According to The Gospel of Mark, Jesus is a heroic man of action, an exorcist, healer, and miracle worker — the Son of God who keeps his identity secret. This critically acclaimed, epic production — five years in the making — is based on the latest theological, historical, and archaeological research, and offers an unforgettable, highly authentic telling of the Jesus story — ending with the empty tomb, a promise to meet again in Galilee, and Jesus’s instructions to spread the good news of the resurrection.
 
DVD/DIGITAL HD SPECIAL FEATURES 
  • “Deconstructing a Scene” Featurette 
  • “Building Jerusalem” Featurette 
  • “Composing the Gospels” Featurette 
  • “Filming the Gospels” Featurette 
  • “Narrating the Gospels” Featurette

Their customers have great things to say about them:

I love this. My playroom looks like I hired a professional. I combined three different forest decal sets from evgieNev and it's just beautiful. Now that they're all up, I do wish I'd arranged some of them a little differently where I chose to place them on the wall, but overall, it looks fantastic. I have mildly textured walls and I found that I had better results when I applied the large decals with my hand alone versus using a squeegee. ~ bkmathisen on Feb 4, 2017 We love the decals. I changed the colors to suit our nursery and the customer service I received was wonderful. I requested color samples to help make my decision. My overall experience was awesome. Again, we love the cute panda decals! ~ fmonjarez73 on Jan 27, 2017 Our owl decal turned out so well! We picked custom colours to go with our room. Changes and feedback were quick, as well as shipping. The quality of the decals are very nice- it does look like paint vs plastic.

Brooklyn Beans Flavored K-Cup Giveaway

February 2, 2017

This month I get to try a new coffee flavor (to me) Maple Sleigh. Doesn't that sound wonderful? It makes me think of breakfast on a lazy morning with pancakes, syrup, and hot coffee. Right away you can smell the maple aroma, the maple flavor isn't overpowering in my opinion. I tried it first plain, then added my usual sweetener and milk. Now that is a smooth cup of coffee and rather dessert-like.

Maple Sleigh is a maple flavored craft coffee, roasted in small batches. Maple Sleigh is made by Brooklyn Beans. They use 100% Arabica coffee beans that are carefully selected. Brooklyn Beans K-Cups are compatible with Keurig 2.0 machines. 

Here is an interesting fact, if you look at the label closely you will see a star with a K in the center. Do you know what that means? The Star-K is a symbol meaning the product is kosher. The Star-K is regarded as being in the top tier of strictness and quality.

Winter k-cup giveaway

December 30, 2016

coffee cup

I use a k-cup every morning. My husband and I enjoy a cup every morning but since we drink it at different times, using a single cup coffee maker suits us. Now in the winter months, that warm cup and smooth flavor is really a welcomed start to the day. Flavored coffee adds variety and you can change your flavor to suit the season.

Is there a better-flavored coffee than Java Nagila (chocolate mint) for winter? Just hearing it makes me feel comfortable and warm. Java Nagila is a special limited time flavored k-cups from Java Factory. The flavor of chocolate and mint is subtle, the aroma is minty even before brewing. I enjoy adding chocolate syrup to my coffee so I was excited by this special winter flavor profile.
