Ever Faithful: A 365 Day devotional by David Jeramiah

Disclaimer:  I was given products in this post for the purpose of review.  I was not paid to write this review.


 With Dr. David Jeremiah, experience how a clearer understanding of God’s nature and love for you can impact your faith. Ever Faithful,a 365-day devotional, invites you into an intimate, daily relationship with the God who knows you, loves you, and has a plan for your life. Countless believers look at their faith as a choice they made once, but Dr. David Jeremiah, founder of Turning Point Ministries, understands that your faith is not static—it is a living, breathing relationship with God! Ever Faithful brings you to the daily choice of turning toward the Lord to respond to His invitation of intimacy and love. Each day includes a Scripture, a short devotional from Dr. David Jeremiah, and an insightful question to help you reflect on God’s love and care throughout the day. The deluxe, padded Leathersoft hardcover format with a ribbon marker makes a beautiful package and a wonderful gift. Today is the perfect time to start growing closer to the Lord. Why wait? Spend the next year with the Lord, who is Ever Faithful.
I love that Jeremiah's devotions are relatable! I can actually apply them to my everyday life. They are beautifully written and really promote an intimate relationship with God. Scripture supports each Devotion as does Biblical truth It is the perfect way to start each morning. I feel this would be a great devotional for most ages.

Arms of Mercy By Ruth Reid

I was given a free copy of this book for the purpose of review.  I was not paid to write this review
My boys are on vacation with my dad for the next 3 days!  Now I do love my kids, but I am excited to have some free time to read.  Okay let me rephrase that I read when they are home too, but I am excited to have some free uninterrupted reading time!  
First on my list is Arms of Mercy
 
A true treat for anyone who enjoys the Amish Romance books!  There is so much depth not only to the characters, but also to the story line!  For most of the story I was on the edge of my seat cheering for a happy ending.  Sometimes I had to cringe for all the tragedy that seemed to follow poor Catherine around, but she was strong through it all.  Now this is book two in the series, but you can read it on its own.  Though I do want to suggest you read the others, this author has a beautiful way of telling a story!
So we start off with Catherine waiting for her bu of five years to propose.  She is waiting for him to show and of course he is late, which is normal.  Shortly after he arrives Catherine's ex shows up!  Catherine tires of waiting on he bo to ask her to marry him so she askes him!  He agrees, but she can tell he doesn't want to.  So Catherine jumps at the chance to go stay with her cousin for a bit in Florida.  What she doesn't realize is her ex plans to follow her in hopes of talking to her.
So now what will she do?  Stay with her current relationship or give the love of her life a second chance!  You def. need to read this book to see all the twists and turns!

Big Hero 6 – The Series: Back in Action now available on DVD

My little Quinn and I have a movie club.  Every night before bed the 2 of us watch at least 20 minutes of a tv show or movie.  Depending what time we get to bed maybe more.  A few months ago my hubby started to watch movies with us, he couldn't wait for his turn to pick one.  I laughed a little inside, because he didn't realize that him "picking" was really going to be Quinn picking.  My hubby's turn came up and Quinn laid 3 movies in front of him, my hubby told Quinn he didn't want to watch any of them.  Then Quinn explained to him that these 3 movies wouldn't make him afraid to sleep in his own room.  So he picked Mulan, Quinn shook his head and said wrong...  Bewildered, my hubby looked at me.  I just laughed it off.  So next he picked Stitch the movie.  Quinn nicely told him I don't think so.  Finally  my hubby asked Quinn if he wanted to watch the Lion King * only movie left I might add.  Quinn got a huge smile and said sure dad if that is what you want to watch!  At this point my hubby looked angry, confused and a little defeated.  So of course I LOST it laughing.  In went the Lion King half way through Quinn got up pushed stopped and told us that was it for tonight.  Now my hubby who isn't use to watchin movies with Quinn could not believe we just stopped half way though and planned to watch the rest the next day.  He told Quinn this, and in reply Quinn asked him " Do you want me to be tired for school tomorrow dad?  Do you want me to fail my spelling test?  I need sleep dad!"  Unsure how to handle this very logical answer my hubby agreed to watch the rest the next day....  That was the last time he joined us for movie club lol.

I do still enjoy watching movies/tv with my little control freak though.  Which is why I am super excited for us to watch Big Hero 6 - The series!

The adventures continue for tech genius Hiro Hamada and his healthcare companion, the lovable, inflatable Baymax! Picking up right before the end of the film, Hiro thinks Baymax is lost forever, until he finds the chip Tadashi designed to create Baymax. Hiro immediately gets to work rebuilding Baymax, but Hiro’s overconfidence and impatience get him into trouble. The stakes are raised for Hiro, Baymax and their friends – adrenaline junkie Go Go, control freak Wasabi, chem whiz Honey Lemon and fanboy Fred – as they fight to protect San Fransokyo as the legendary superhero team Big Hero 6.

Hershey Park

I was given tickets in exchange for this post.  I was not paid to write this post

Every summer for as long as I can remember my family has gone to Hershey Park.  My mom even has a video of us riding the river canyon ride when I was about 11!  That ride is now gone, but the memory remains.  The reason I love Hershey so much is because it has something for all ages.  I love it just as much at 31 as I did when I was a kid.  Plus there is so many rides that I don't even think it would be possible to ride them all in one day.  And not only do they have a huge regular park, but there is also a BIG water park area too!  So big that I spent most of my day there on Monday.  At 98 degrees I wasn't wondering to far from the water area lol.
There is also games to play, an aquatheater.  An arcade and even a zoo!  You really could make an entire day out of the park!


So every year our day starts by measuring just how tall we got


Not only do the kids get excited to see which rides they will be big enough for this year, but I also like that every year I get a photo keepsake.  My mom still has mine from when I was a kiddo!

A really nice thing about Hershey Park is there is signs every where.  I think it would be almost impossible to get lost.  And there is also a lot of bathrooms.  With 2 little boys that is a must!  Another great thing is all the shade areas.  When my boys are on rides I tend to just watch.  It is nice to have an area to stand where I'm not baking in the sun.  And speaking of kids rides there is so many to choose from!  My oldest is at that odd stage, to big for the real little rides, but not quite ready for the coasters.  I love that Hershey Park has rides perfect for that between age.


If you have kids I'm sure you that they need to play games right away!  And of course they win so you are left dragging around their prize all day!
At this point I was all but dying from the heat so we headed to the waterpark.  Hershey has very affordable lockers that I can put my stuff in.  I like that I got two wrist bands, that way in case I lost mine my hubby had his.
The water park is beyond epic!  There is a wave pool, a lazy river, several slides and even a water coaster!


We spent 4 hours in the waterpark and still didn't get to go on everything!  

If you are looking for a great place to vacation this summer you def. want to check out Hershey Park!  And if you don't live in pa like I do they have an awesome hotel and spa!  You can make an entire weekend out of it.

EvgieNev Wall Decals

I will be compensated for this post with a free wall decal
My boys are getting to that age where cartoons aren't really that cool any more.  Now don't get me wrong they still have a couple that they love.  They just don't want them all over their room!  So I had to pull down the Paw Patrol and Teenage Mutant Ninja turtles decals.  They wanted something more grown up they told me!

So online I went searching and I found EvgieNev Wall Decals.  Now so does offer stuff for really young kids.  But I just fell in love with her adult/older kids items

Some info to add to the posts/email:
EvgieNev Wall Decals are creating Large Wall Decals sets with bright illustrations and very educational content, so this is not just pictures on the wall but very attractive cute characters carefully crafted by their talent team. They usually create dynamic images, not static pictures, where something is happening, very adventurous and fun-like and they are collecting ideas for their illustrations from books, history and nature. It may sound funny but if you look through the shop it is really mind-blowing collection of designs starting from Cowboys and Aliens, all the Jungle and Safari sets, Teddy Bears, Cat Scuba Divers, Space Walking Monkeys, Polar Themes, Indigenous Camps, South America, Fairy Themes, Noah Ark and yet, this is just a fraction
