$10 Amazon Gift Card Giveaway! Southern Gospel Coming to Theaters March 10

Disclosure: many thanks to BMG for providing a sample product for this review. Opinions are 100% my own.

Southern Gospel is one of those movies that tugs at your heartstrings, but it's still so good. Let me say up front that it's not really a movie for kids. There is an advisory on it for a reason. There are some very adult themes. But this movie hit right for sending across the message of the gospel. The message that no matter what you do, or how you act, there is a God in heaven who loves you, who wants you to reach out to him, and who will always be glad when you do. Don't miss this story of redemption, coming to theaters March 10th.

The first time I tried one of these FabFitFun subscription boxes was over the holidays, and I was so happy with it that I've tried another one for Spring.

Every item is relevant and something I would enjoy. It feels like a treat when it arrives on my doorstep, and I'm happy to have discovered the program.

Universal Studios in Orlando is Celebrating Mardi Gras!

This long weekend was great for us because we headed to Orlando to take in a couple of the amusement parks. Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure offer you the chance to seamlessly see two amusement parks in one day. We arrived to Universal Studios first thing in the morning, which I highly recommend. The park wasn't open yet but we got a great parking spot in the nearby garage. Since we were early, we got to leisurely stroll the replicated streets of California before many people arrived.

This is a collaborative post. Please welcome today's contributor.

Getting kids interested in science can be difficult, but it can be a fascinating subject that opens up a world of new ideas and possibilities. However, science can be made enjoyable, interesting, and approachable for children with the right methods.

Hands-on Activities

Because they learn best visually, kids benefit from hands-on activities that help make science come alive. Encourage your kids to conduct experiments, create models, and take part in other hands-on activities that will improve their understanding of and appreciation for science. The kind of learning that a child experiences when doing things directly with their hands is entirely different to book learning. And it's a learning style that might suit your child better too.

Easy to Read TEXT Bible with Big Discount and Giveaway

Many thanks to Harper Collins Christian Publishing for providing a sample of the product for this review. Opinions are 100% my own and NOT influenced by monetary compensation.

Having been in the church for awhile, and having once been a Sunday School Teacher (many years ago), I understand that the Bible isn't always easy for kids to understand. For the younger crowd, there are plenty of children's Bibles with great graphics and stories broken down to be at the primary level. It always seemed though, that the tweens and teens were kind of left hanging. That is true no more! The TEXT Bible was created with students, young adults and new believers in mind. It uses a new and easy to remember TEXT study method. 'TEXT' in this instance, being used as an acronym for the following:
  • Talk to God
  • Encounter God and humanity in scripture
  • eXamine your heart
  • Talk to others

5 Reasons to Send a Birthday Card or Handwritten Letter

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

Did you send Christmas Cards this year? I used to always send them but have gradually decreased the number sent until I was no longer sending them at all. My friends and family have all expressed the same. It's kind of a pity actually, because I enjoyed displaying the cards I received during the holiday season.

That got me to thinking though, are there all that many people who send handwritten letters or cards out anymore? Technology makes it so easy to whip up a response and send it automatically that I think the answer is that is no. And what about birthday cards? The answer is probably the same. How can we get back to a more personal touch? 

Why not combine technology and the personal letter or card by using a service that will automatically send birthday cards?  As a mom of 4 and a grandmother of the same number, I have a lot of special days to remember, including birthdays, so I do like that idea. I like it a lot.
