Are you familiar with the 365 Pocket Prayer guides published through Tyndale House Publishers? There is the original 365 Pocket Prayers(2010), 365 Pocket Prayers for Women(2011), 365 Pocket Prayers for Graduates(2013) and 365 Pocket Prayer Evening Guide(2013)?  And, in keeping with the growing prayer guide tradition there is the NEW 365 Pocket Prayers for Mothers: Guidance and Wisdom for Each New Day which has arrived just in time for the holidays.

And, in keeping with the 365 Pocket Prayers guide tradition there is the NEW 365 Pocket Prayers for Mothers: Guidance and Wisdom for Each New Day  which has arrived just in time for the holidays. The contributors are Amie Carlson,  Karen Hodge, and Erin Keely Marshall.  This beautiful prayer guide is made of  a pretty purple imitation leather binding and features an embossed mother and baby bird duo that perches upon a simple branch with three leaves and the title of the book, plus a functional green ribbon bookmark.

The 365 Pocket Prayers for Mothers: Guidance and Wisdom for Each New Day begins with a daily prayer and ends with a promise. If you are short on time or in immediate need of a quick word from God, there's shorter prayers throughout the guide called Prayerful Moments. And, it features a topical index near the rear,  for quick access on subjects like self-control, self-esteem , health and  healing, joy and grief, and finances just to name just a few.

As a mom and grandmother, I am continually praying for all of my children and their families. Usually,  I am a stickler for praying for specific needs but oftentimes,  I am not allowed access to all that goes on in their lives.  I know I am not meant to know-it-all. These are times that really test my faith in God. Letting go! Letting God! I must allow God to handle the fears, burdens and unspoken prayers and other needs of my family.  It is a blessing to know that I can access the 365 Pocket Prayers for Mothers to aid me daily or  anytime I may  need a boost of encouragement.

Oftentimes, moms need guidance for themselves.  The 365 Pocket Prayers for Mothers is a convenient anytime, anywhere guide that prompts us to take our requests boldly to the throne of our gracious God.(Hebrews 4:16) Don't allow yourself to become engrossed by worries and challenges. Begin the day with an open heart that's ready to hear from God,  personalize the prayers and meditate upon each scripture promises.

I recommend the 365 Pocket Prayers for Mothers. I like that it is easy-to-carry and store in most of my purses, totes, backpacks and luggage. If you have trouble with space or storage consider the eBook version. And, let's not forget about gifting a copy on a special occasion for family and friends!



Thank you,

Clean Carpet for the Holidays

Clean Carpet for the Holidays



We had been wanting to clean our carpet for months. I guess the reason for procrastinating had  a lot to do with moving furniture from one place to another. Well, no more putting it off. We debated whether to rent a Rug Doctor or a Bissell. Our local Lowes features the BISSELL® Carpet Cleaner and sells a variety of carpet cleaning solutions. We used Bissell Allergen Carpet Cleaner. SRV $14.99


We intended on shampooing only one room at a time due to moving furniture and stuff. As my dear husband got started he decided he could do more. He ended up shampooing the whole house. He completed this task within the 24 hour period so we did not need to pay for an extra day or two.




The carpet dries quicker and with less work. The Bissell Big Green Shampoo & Steam Cleaner is affordable and easy-to-use too. We were pleased with the results and have decided to shampoo more frequently.



Thank you,

Explore the Adventures Inside the Curiosity Kits by National Geographics

National Geographic Curiosity Kits




What a great day for setting up the craft table outdoors today! I brought out the National Geographic Curiosity Kit for Aborigine Pottery Activity Kit. It came with everything we needed to create two small bowls and one tile. We only needed old newspaper to protect our working station and water for clean-up time. Ages 8 and up. This kit was an old craft from many years ago. I did a Google search but did not find many for sale. There was a NGCK for My World Quilt at Amazon and a NGCK for Candle Making Activity Kit at Ebay. You can check out other Art and Creativity kits at National Geographic though.

Holiday Gift Guide: Surprise at Yorktown by Adventures in Odyssey

 Surprise at Yorktown by Adventures in Odyssey





I received a complimentary copy of Adventures in Odyssey The Imagination Station: Surprise at Yorktown #15 by Marianne Hering and Nancy I. Sanders for this review posting through Tyndale Blog Network.

"In war, we trust only God Himself, Washington said.  


Mr. Whittaker runs an ice-cream shop called Whit's End, in the town of Odyssey. He has a workshop and is a bit of an inventor. He created a time machine called Imagination Station. The Imagination Station can send someone back in time to other periods of history.

On this particular day, cousins Patrick and Beth visit the shop looking for adventure. Previously, they traveled back in time to the American Revolution where they met Paul Revere and James Forten. Mr. Whittaker a.k.a. "Whit" knew they had their hearts set on meeting General George Washington.

Whit notified the cousins that today they will return to the American Revolution that takes place in 1781 at Yorktown, Virginia. He shared special gifts with Patrick and Beth. What role will these items play in the adventure? The journey is a dangerous one filled with mysterious couriers and spies, exploding cannonballs, a horrific storm and more. Will they be able to help save their county and make it back alive?



Surprise at Yorktown #15 by Marianne Hering and Nancy I. Sanders is filled with fun history facts and encourages faith and character at the same time. It has lots of twists and turns! It is an easy-to-read chapter book recommended for children ages 7 and up. And, it's affordable priced at $4.99.

Grand Piano Co, Inc
Morganton, NC

This piano was a gift from my ex-brother-in-law and his family. He began practicing piano at age seven. This was over forty years ago.

Due to divorce, we had to give away the piano because we could not store it at the time. The girls and I gave it to my nephew in Georgia.

I was looking on Craigslist and one just popped up 3 days ago. They want $200, a steal for this beauty.

Holiday Gift Guide: Wycliffe USA Engages Children in Bible Translation with Updates to Popular ‘Around the World with Kate & Mack’ Book

SRV $9.95


Wycliffe USA Engages Children in Bible Translation with Updates to Popular ‘Around the World with Kate & Mack’ Book

New edition provides ‘A Look at Languages from A to Z,’ exposes children to different cultures and teaches importance of Bible literacy and translation



(ORLANDO, FLA.) – Oct. 21, 2014 – Wycliffe Bible Translators USA, the largest Scripture translation organization in the world, today released a new edition of its popular children’s book, “Around the World with Kate & Mack: A Look at Languages from A to Z.” The book launch coincides with new child-friendly displays in Wycliffe USA’s Orlando Discovery Center and web-based activities for children on the new Wycliffe.org website.

“Around the World” is an updated version of the Wycliffe classic children’s book, “From Akebu to Zapotec: A Book of Bibleless Peoples,” which has sold more than 30,000 copies. In “Around the World,” Kate, a fictionalized missionary kid, and Mack, her precocious parrot, take readers on a globe-trotting adventure, introducing children to a new language and culture for each letter of the alphabet, from Arop (Papua New Guinea) to Zinza (Tanzania). With more than 100 pages of photographs, colorful illustrations and fun facts, “Around the World” is a perfect introduction to Bible translation for children of all ages.

“‘Around the World’ is a great way for children and their parents to learn about Bible translation occurring all over the world,” said Kathy Zoetewey, associate director of education services. “Along with the launch of kid-focused displays in the Discovery Center and downloadable activities on the recently re-launched Wycliffe.org website, our children’s lessons are as strong as they have ever been, and we’re excited to continue finding innovative ways to get kids interested in and involved with Bible translation.”

“Around the World” also directs children to a special section of the recently re-launched Wycliffe USA website (www.wycliffe.org/a-z) where they can play games and access additional content that aligns with the book. New displays at the Wycliffe Discovery Center provide hands-on learning experiences where children and adults can encounter people, language and cultures from around the world and learn more about the art and science of Bible translation.

“We know the last Bible translator is alive somewhere in the world today,” said Bob Creson, president and CEO of Wycliffe USA. “He or she very well may be a child who develops a passion for Scripture translation by reading ‘Around the World with Kate & Mack.’”

Around the World with Kate & Mack” is available online at http://shop.wycliffe.org and in the Village Shop at Wycliffe USA’s Orlando headquarters.

It features a variety of songs featuring Christian rock & alternative, plus Praise & Worship.


Stocking Stuffers

ABOUT THE BAND:
Manic Drive has been widely known as a Canadian band who always delivers a great show, but over the past few years and project releases, they have added to their extensive touring of Canadian and US markets multiple Billboard Top 10 & 20 singles on CHR & Christian Rock Radio. Manic Drive is clearly very intentional about reaching their generation and inspiring them to pursue a deeper walk with Christ and to get involved in changing the world they are inheriting. And they are uniquely equipped to do so. The band members, all in their early-mid twenties, have made sacrifices to pursue God’s call on their lives. Their life experience, spiritual maturity and ministry have opened doors to speak into the lives of their own generation and that is perhaps the most defining characteristic of this group of guys.

Social Connection: Official Website, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube.

Keep Your Cat Purring with Zuke's G*ZEES Grain-Free Treats!



Zuke's G-Zees Tasty Turkey Recipe Cat Treats


Zuke's G*ZEES - Tasty Turkey Recipe Net Wt. 3 oz.

My family and I received a sample packet of  Zuke's G*ZEES for cats through Chewy.com. We usually pick fish or salmon flavors for Ollie or Bob's cat treats but with Thanksgiving a few weeks away, the Tasty Turkey Recipe was our featured product for our reader this month.

Once opened, the real turkey aroma in Zuke's G*ZEEs permeates from the sneak a peak resealable 3-oz packet. The scrumptious scent is similar to that of mouth watering beef jerky. Mmm! Each semi-moist treat contains nutritional glucosamine, cranberries, omega rich fish oil and much more. Zuke's G*ZEES is specially made for an adult cat. A feeding guide is provided on each package.

Zuke's G*ZEES flavors at Chewy.com:

  • Tasty Turkey Recipe
  • Tender Chicken Recipe
  • Savory Salmon Recipe
