Review/ Giveaway Christy Nockels “Let it be Jesus” album

Christy Nockels Let it be Jesus
Today’s review and giveaway is for Christy Nockels’ brand new album Let It Be Jesus.
I’ve been listening to the downloads of the songs for the last week and really like this album.  Many of the songs have words directly from Scripture.  It’s a mixture of songs I can use for praise and worship and for simply enjoying listening to Christian music.  It’s a live album, so you’ll hear the clapping of the audience, but it’s still very well produced.  There are 11 great songs on Let It Be Jesus.  See it on iTunes. And you can win it for yourself–see below for the giveaway!
About Christy:
As a worship leader for many years, she has been an integral part of Passion Conferences from its inception in 1997.  She’s seen first hand music sweep people into the presence of God in a powerful way. A pastor’s kid, who was born in Fort Worth and raised in Oklahoma, she grew up singing in church. She met her husband, Nathan, in 1993 at the Christian Artists Seminar in Estes Park, Co. They recorded an independent record with fellow worship leader Charlie Hall under the name Sons & Daughters that led to an invitation from Louie Giglio to participate in the first Passion conference in Austin. Christy’s voice gained a national platform when she and Nathan formed the duo Watermark, recording four acclaimed albums before that musical season ended, paving the way for Christy’s solo career. In 2008, the couple moved to Atlanta to become part of Passion City Church where she serves on the worship team with sixstepsrecords labelmates Chris Tomlin and Kristian Stanfill. The following year, Nockels released her acclaimed solo debut, Life Light Up and spent much of the next two years touring with Tomlin and Passion.

Tapestry of Grace: Spring Unit Celebration (plus a curriculum giveaway!)

Tapestry of Grace Spring unit celebration

I can’t express to you how wonderful it has been to switch our history/literature curriculum to Tapestry of Grace this year, and to be a part of our Tapestry of Grace Fellowship Group!  We have just completed our 2nd unit celebration of the year.  We did one last fall which was focused on The Roaring Twenties.  This time we expanded even more with the time period being the 1930s – 1960s in 6 different countries that we have recently studied: Israel, India, China, Cuba, Germany, and the southern U.S.

**Be sure to read to the bottom of the post to enter to win a full year of Tapestry of Grace Curriculum!

Everyone was encouraged to dress from one of the countries and/or the time period. My family was dressed from the 1950s. I made poodle skirts for myself and 3 of my girls. My oldest daughter wanted a car-hop costume, so I made one for her. It was easy for the boys–jeans and a t-shirt, and we got (borrowed) a couple of black leather jackets.  So fun!

Giveaway: 4 Oz. Bottle Apothecary Extracts Tea Tree Oil (with ebook)

 

image

 

 

Today’s giveaway is for a 4oz bottle of Apothecary Extracts Tea Tree Oil + the Ebook 53 Uses for Tea Tree Oil!  It’s a $24.99 value.

I am a novice when it comes to essential oils.  I’ve attended a couple of seminars and read some on the subject, but I only own a few.  The only one I’ve used much at all is Tea Tree Oil!  I first got it when I heard it could be useful in getting a tick to unattach.  We had had an incident where a tick attached itself to my baby’s head.  Oh, yes, I freaked out.  I bought some Tea Tree Oil soon after that, but have never needed it for that reason.

I did mix up a batch of the oil with some water and put it in a spray bottle to use as a disinfectant when my son was playing football.  Tea Tree Oil is naturally anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and anti-fungal, so it’s great whenever germs need to be killed.  I would spray it inside my son’s football helmet after practices and games after he would wipe it out with baby wipes.

I love the book 53 Uses for Tea Tree Oil because I have discovered so many more ways to use it!  Many of the recipes only use a few drops, so one bottle goes a long way.  There are recipes for shampoo, oven cleaner, facial scrubs, and so much more!  Visit the Apothecary Extracts website.

See below on the graphic for more details on the Tea Tree Oil you’ll be entering to win.  Once again, I am wishing I could enter as well!

Giveaway starts on March 9th and ends on the 15th. US only.

“23 Blast” DVD Giveaway

23 Blast movie review

 Welcome to another movie giveaway today.  Have you heard about 23 Blast?  It’s based on a true story.
As a typical teenager, Travis Freeman (Mark Hapka) is a local hero both on and off the high-school football field in his small Kentucky town, but in 1997, Travis contracts an infection that destroys his optic nerve and renders him blind overnight. With the loving help and concern of his parents, physical therapist, coach, and best friend, Travis demonstrates what true bravery is: He continues to compete on the gridiron and helps his team advance to the state finals.  Rated PG-13 / 1h 42m
My Review:
This was another great family movie!  I will say first, though, that some of the themes are a bit intense, so it’s best for older kids.  There was no bad language, but the PG-13 rating is for teen drinking.
It was a very inspirational movie.  I love how people overcome the difficulties that they are faced with.  Travis had a sudden infection (menangitis) that caused blindness, and even though he went through the typical depression, he overcame his trial.  I loved the therapist character who pushed him to deal with his blindness and got him back to school and to take care of himeself.  I loved the coach who took a chance and allowed him to play football again.  I loved the “love” story, and the way Travis encouraged his best friend to do better than he was.  And, I loved that the real Travis was in the movie, too!  You’ll have to watch until the end to see who he is!

Giveaway: Subscription to “Dear Magazine”

image

Oh, I’m so excited about this giveaway of a Dear Magazine subscription today!

Do you have a daughter or granddaughter (or niece or friend!) who is aged 13-21? Then this magazine is for her! It comes to you from one of my favorite companies Home Educating Family (HEDUA). I have used their Well Planned Day planners and calendars for years, as well as enjoying their homeschool magazine Home Educating Family. Now, I’m excited to have a magazine just for my daughters!

Here’s a little about the magazine:

Every young woman is dear. But not every young woman realizes this truth. Jenny Keliher has a passion to encourage young women to discover that they are dear. She wants to “show young women that they are dear in every sense of the word and in every area of their lives.”

So, who is Jenny? Daughter of Well Planned Gal Rebecca Keliher, Jenny is a young woman who has been taught to chase her passions and use her talents to God’s glory.

In an effort to reach teenagers world-wide with the message that they are dear to God, Jenny has created Dear Magazine. This beautiful product combines Jenny’s heart for the Lord with her love for literature, baking, and design.

Designed for young women ranging in age from thirteen to twenty-one, Dear covers everything from faith to fashion, from relationships to entertainment. But nothing about these topics fits the societal norm. Instead, each article reminds young women that everything they do should reflect the dear woman God has created them to be.

In each issue of Dear, young women will find much to challenge them and spark their interest, such as:
– the biography of a historical hero, beginning with Amy Carmichael
– women’s awareness topics
– do-it-yourself sections
– recipes
– fashion tips
– spiritual growth encouragement
– encouragement and advice for growing in maturity
– discussions on relationships with friends and family
– entertainment suggestions

 

See a Preview of Dear Magazine here:

Review/ Giveaway “The Identical” DVD

The Identical movie giveaway

I’m so thrilled to give a review on a family movie today–along with a giveaway!  The movie is “The Identical” and stars actors such as Ashley Judd, Seth Green, Joe Pantoliano, Blake Rayne, and Ray Liotta.

When the movie first arrived, I wasn’t sure if my family would enjoy it or not, so I decided to watch it on a Thursday night, rather than on our typical weekend movie night.

I popped it in the DVD player, and it wasn’t long before the whole family was sitting around!  I also planned on stopping it after 45 minutes and finishing it the next day, but we were so drawn into the story, we watched it all right then.

The story really gripped at me. Poverty and the Great Depression leads a couple to give up one of their twin babies to an infertile couple.  Oh, the tears flowed!  The boys grew up apart, and both had great musical talent.  I don’t want to give away the story.  But it is heart-wrenching as well as heart-warming.

I loved the history portrayed as we travel from the 1930s to the 1970s.  I loved the music.  I loved the marriage relationships.  I loved the focus on God.

Even my husband and oldest son gave it a thumbs-up, and they are strong critics of movies which could be thought of as “B” movies!

Rated PG, approx. 107 minutes.

T-Tapp Giveaway: Prize Pack (Book, 4 DVDs, 2 CDs)

T-Tapp Prize Pack (book and DVDs)

I am so excited to offer this awesome T-Tapp giveaway today!  It’s a T-Tapp Prize pack including the book Fit and Fabulous in 15 Minutes by Teresa Tapp, 4 DVDs, and 2 CDs.   T-Tapp is an exercise program, and it’s the only one I enjoy doing!  I have been doing various T-Tapp workouts for about 4 years (off and on), and am back to being consistent with it.

What I love about T-Tapp is that it is such a focused type of exercising that “less is more.”  You are not just exercising one muscle at a time, but at least 5 muscles at a time with every exercise–so you get more benefit in less time.  I won’t lie to you– it’s not easy!  The Basic Workout is 15 minutes of hard work.  But I can do it for 15 minutes!

Here is what you get in the Prize Pack:

  • The book Fit and Fabulous in 15 Minutes by Teresa Tapp (explains everything about the T-Tapp technique and why it works so well, gives detailed instructions for the Basic Workout and the Total Workout, and explains the God Made/Man Made way of eating).  The book also includes the coupon in the back to get 30% off your next order at T-Tapp and is signed by Teresa Tapp!
  • The DVD Fit and Fabulous in 15 Minutes, which comes in the book.  It has 3 special exercises on it such as Hoedowns (to balance blood sugar in 3 minutes) and Organs in Place/ Half Frogs (to get a flatter stomach).
  • The DVD Yes You Can With T-Tapp Instructional Seminar (Teresa gives a live seminar; there are exercises included on it.)
  • CRT Body Brushing with 4 Special Exercises to Target Trim Inches and Reduce Cellulite.  (Body brushing is skin exercise to help tighten your skin as you lose weight)
  • Barefoot Basic+ 30-Minute Clinic Workout (You can learn the Basic Workout using DVD and the book.)
  • Radio Interview CD with Teresa Tapp
  • The Truth About Cellulite CD

Win 4 incredible DVDs!:

Sale and Giveaway of Motivated Moms Planners

New Motivated Moms square

If you have read my blog for a while, you may remember me sharing about the Motivated Moms planners in the past.

This planner is just incredible!  It’s just what a busy woman needs!  What you’ll find is a planner that tells you what to do every day.  There are the basics (clean kitchen sink, read to children, take medications, vacuum living room), but also the exotic chores we never seem to get to (change furnace filter, clean ceiling fan, clean freezer compartment in fridge, pull dead leaves off of houseplants).  If you follow it each day, you’ll get your spring cleaning spread throughout the whole year!  I love that!

Motivated Moms Planner

There are two different ways to use this planner–through an ebook format or an app.  In the past I have used the ebook format, printed mine out, and made a cute cover for it! There are lots of versions of this planner (different sizes, with or without Bible reading, etc.).

But lately I’ve been using it in app format.  There are so many different ways to customize it for what will be most useful for you.  When you make customizations, they will carry over when you renew it the next year!  It’s available for iOS devices (Motivated Moms) and Android.

Motivated Moms Review

The BIG SALE of the year is from December 31, 2014- January 2, 2015.  The ebooks are $2 off (so $6), no coupon code required!

The normal price is $1.99 for the app and includes 2 months of tasks and server access. The app will be on sale for 99¢. A year subscription is normally $7.99 but it will be on sale for $5.99.

 

But I also have a giveaway with 3 Winners!  You choose which ebook or app you’d like!  Enter below on the Rafflecopter app.  (If you purchase the ebook during the sale and then win it, you’ll get a refund.  An app purchase can’t be refunded, though.) The winners will be chosen on Sunday January 11, 2015 and will have 24 hours to respond to my email.
