Christmas Love Letters from God

November 23, 2016

christmas book
 

Written for children ages four to eight, Christmas Love Letters from God cleverly combines both prose and poetry as the story of Jesus’ birth unfolds. The book includes seven stories, beginning with Isaiah’s prophecy and ending with the visit of the wise men. Following each story, the child will find his or her own letter from God, folded into a small envelope attached to the page. Each letter begins with a space in which to write the child’s name, so each one can be specially addressed to the child.

 

Written as if God is speaking, each personalized message gives the young reader a sense of wonder as they discover anew the Christmas holiday and the birth of Jesus. A very special Bible verse, entitled God’s Perfect Promise, also accompanies each story and letter as God’s personal words of love, promise, and hope.

Mexican Hot Cocoa

November 14, 2016

hot cocoa


I have never had Mexican Hot Cocoa before but I have had regular hot chocolate. I had to do a google search to see what the difference was. I found it to be cinnamon and chili. With that said, I tried my Brooklyn Roastery Mexican Hot Cocoa k-cup with interest. What I found was a slightly odd smell. A warm comforting drink with a slight cinnamon aftertaste and a small heat in my chest from the chili. 

Have you tried Mexican Hot Cocoa? What did you think? If you would like to win your own box of 40 k-cups of Mexican Hot Cocoa from Brooklyn Roastery, enter below.

Parenting Book :: Review and Giveaway

October 26, 2016
 
In the midst of folding laundry, coordinating carpool schedules, and breaking up fights, many parents get lost. Feeling pressure to do everything “right” and raise up “good” children, it’s easy to lose sight of our ultimate purpose as parents in the quest for practical tips and guaranteed formulas.
In this life-giving book, Paul Tripp offers parents much more than a to-do list. Instead, he presents us with a big-picture view of God’s plan for us as parents. Outlining fourteen foundational principles centered on the gospel, he shows that we need more than the latest parenting strategy or list of techniques. Rather, we need the rescuing grace of God—grace that has the power to shape how we view everything we do as parents.  Freed from the burden of trying to manufacture life-change in our children’s hearts, we can embrace a grand perspective of parenting overflowing with vision, purpose, and joy.

Venture Kit and Giveaway

October 20, 2016

Just like playing with baby dolls, toy kitchens, and building forts; children learn by mimicking adults and a variety of careers.  Why not also play entrepreneurship?

Venture Kits are designed by real entrepreneurs and Harvard MBAs, reviewed by real grade and high school teachers, and tested by real kidsVenture Kits arm kids with tomorrow’s must-have skills: initiative, grit, creativity, and problem-solving. 

We were sent the Treats to-go kit. My daughter enjoyed this kit because it included a part of the process making treats in the kitchen. The image above shows what arrived in our kit. 

My daughter read through the recipe cards and made her decision on what to make first, dipped pretzels.

 

She enjoyed reading the recipe, doing the prep and the creativity of decorating the dipped pretzels. 

As we worked in the kitchen, we talked about how many pretzels should go into the snack bags and how much she would charge. I love the idea of working through these different steps of an actual business. I am not a huge fan of children selling for money so we didn't follow through with those steps, although I know my daughter would have like it. I still find the Venture Kit and the process we went through fun and educational.

Treats To-Go is the first kit available to the public with more in the works. If you would like to try your own Treats to-go Venture Kit, you can enter to win one below.

The Afters CD :: Review and Giveaway

September 22, 2016

Live on Forever is The Afters new CD, written and recorded during the midst of tragedy. God truly works in mysterious ways. Read the bio below to learn more.

 

Track List:

  • "Shadows" 
  • "Battles"  
  • "Sunrise"
  • "Time of My Life"  
  • "Wake Up My Heart" 
  • "Live On Forever" 
  • "Eyes of a Believer" 
  • "Survivors"  
  • "Legends" 
  • When You're with Me"

 

The Afters - Live on Forever Bio:

It’s easy to assume stories of trial and triumph are just for the Bible or the history books. But miracles still happen, even when adversity hits hardest. Just ask Josh Havens, guitarist and lead vocalist of The Afters. He relates how the band’s latest effort, Live on Forever, began during a season of tragedy.

 

Just as the band regrouped to record, Havens witnessed the wife of a close friend contract cancer. Drummer Jordan Mohilowski (who produced the new album) had a brief health scare, and a close companion in his church—part of the worship team—was hit and killed by an impaired driver. She was a young woman, Havens says, who had unlimited potential.

 

But Live on Forever–the band’s fifth with the Fair Trade label-still took shape as a celebration of faithfulness, protection and promise—one that shimmers with strong rhythms, undeniable energy, and compelling pop hooks. The album finds Havens in strong, soaring voice as he invites listeners to find shelter and strength in God. “If any theme has emerged, it would be ‘inspiration and motivation,’” Havens says.

 

Havens himself felt a deep need to hold on after another loss struck: The band’s longtime soundman, Anthony Martinez, saw his newborn daughter die in infancy.

 

Ask Havens to pick out a song that sums up the spirit of the album, and he chooses “Battles.” “It was the last song we wrote and the fastest we wrote,” he says. “We don’t typically write songs fast; we’ll change lyrics and melodies and craft our songs carefully. But ‘Battles’ poured out, the music and lyrics, in one day. It’s about standing up against fear and knowing God is always with us,” Havens explains. “It’s one of the takeaways we hope people get: ‘Don’t give up to fear.

 

Havens shares how, half a world away from his home in Phoenix, he caught a small glimpse of heaven’s reassurance. The place: downtown Amsterdam. The occasion: a dinner between shows with band members and spouses—including soundman Martinez and his wife. For their baby daughter, the Martinez couple had chosen an unusual moniker with an unusual spelling: Pieper. Against all odds, it also happened to be exactly how the intimate restaurant they dined at spelled its name. Still, no one was prepared for what happened at the end of the meal. “We were talking about baby Pieper, and as we got up to leave, we noticed that the only thing on the walls—the only thing—was a framed document, an award for hospitality. And the date on the award—the only date in the place—was Pieper’s birthday. Her mother just started bawling.” Havens sums up the reassurance all took home that night: “We thought, ‘This is where God’s angels fly: right in the middle of the loss.’ God gives us little glimpses to show us he’s here.”


“We worked on this record for almost two years and over those two years, it was a real season of loss,” Havens recalls. “But in the end, Live on Forever is about moving us to trust God, to stand up against fear. It’s an ‘ante up’ record, an anthem for people’s lives: ‘God you are with me in all this. I’m not alone.’”
