Overcomer @overcomermovie #overcomermovie #FlyBy

I will received a dvd in exchange for making this post.

OVERCOMER is from the creators of the #1 box-office hit War Room. Life changes overnight for coach John Harrison (Kendrick) after he loses his basketball team and is challenged by the school’s principal, Olivia (Shirer), to coach a new sport he doesn’t know or like. As John questions his own worth, he dares to help the least likely runner take on the biggest race of the year. Filled with a powerful mix of faith, humor and heart, this inspirational story will have you on the edge of your seat.
I have seen several movies by the creators of OVERCOMER and I always walk away feeling empowered.  I have a feeling OVERCOMER is going to have the same affect especially since Overcomer is the #1 Inspirational Family Film of 2019 and has 98% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes!

Brooklyn Cloth

I was given products in this post for the propose of review.  I was not paid to write this review, all options are my own

My oldest son is now 12!  Where did the years go!!  His style has changed so much these past few years.  No longer is it okay for me to get him shirts with his favorite cartoon characters on them :(.  He wants to start dressing more grown up and to top it off he fits in men's small, where did my little boy go.  I have been looking for different stores that fit his new style and we both fell in love with Brooklyn cloth

But Brooklyn Cloth has done the work, choosing gifts for the guy in your life—that he hasn't already gone out and bought for himself.

IT Chapter 2

I was given products in this post for the purpose of review.  I was not paid to write this review
Come back and play when “IT Chapter Two” arrives on 4K UHD Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and Digital. Evil resurfaces in Derry as director Andy Muschietti reunites the Losers Club in a return to where it all began with “IT Chapter Two,” the conclusion to the highest-grossing horror film of all time.


Twenty-seven years after the Losers Club defeated Pennywise (Bill SkarsgĂ„rd), he has returned to terrorize the town of Derry once more. Now adults, the Losers have long since gone their separate ways. However, people are disappearing again, so Mike (Isaiah Mustafa), the only one of the group to remain in their hometown, calls the others home. Damaged by the experiences of their past, they must each conquer their deepest fears to destroy Pennywise once and for  all...putting them directly in the path of the shape-shifting clown that has become deadlier than ever.

IT Chapter Two” 4K UHD Combo Pack and Blu-ray Combo Pack contain the following special features:
   Pennywise Lives Again!
      This Meeting of the Losers Club Has Officially Begun
·      Finding the Deadlights
      The Summers of IT: Chapter One, You’ll Float Too

      This Meeting of the Losers Club Has Officially Begun

My review:
I'm not normally a scary movie watcher, but when I was little my cousin Chris would come over every weekend.  Our thing was to watch IT and then watch Grease (I know weird combo lol)   When the new IT released (was it 2 years ago?) I had to watch.  I was expecting to be let down, the old one was so good.  Thankfully that was not the case!!  The new IT was even better then the old and IT chapter 2 was the perfect finish.  So I do like there was several funny parts, Richie and Eddie scenes are the best!  I like that we flashback a lot to when the Loser Club was younger, it helps to support the character growth.  This is a long movie, but never once did I feel like it was to long.  The movie just flows.
I do have to admit I did not read the book so I cannot comment if the book to movie adaption was correct.

Yellow Scope Science Kits

I was given products in this post for the purpose of review.

Growing up I always wanted to be a teacher.  I wanted to stand in front of a class and make kids love learning as much as I did.  Over the years my dreams shifted a bit, I still work in a school teaching, I still get to pass on my passion for learning.  But my dream changed just a little and now I work with special needs kids.  Every day is an adventure, every day I have the chance to encourge someone.  Younger me would be proud :)  When I heard about Yellow Scope Science Kits I just knew I had to check it out!  Hands on learning in my personal opinion is the best kind of learning!  It gives kids a visual and shows them how things work
