The Desire by Dan Walsh and Gary Smalley

The Desire by Dan Walsh and Gary Smalley

The Desire by Dan Walsh and Gary Smalley is the third book in The Restoration Series. It is about a young couple who has deals with infertility. This is a Christian fiction novel. The book also deals with crisis pregnancy, single motherhood, showing compassion and generosity as believers. It is a nice story.

I was naughty and did not write my thoughts down right after I read the book a month ago, which is when it is freshest for me. So I am relying on my daughter’s thoughts since she just read the book over the weekend.

My 15-year-old daughter, B, says the book made her really think about the issue of humility and trusting God, which were spiritual themes in the book. She said both of these issues are areas she needs to work on personally.

B said she really liked the characters. She thought they were very well fleshed out and developed. She said she was proud of Christina (single woman facing a crisis pregnancy) for not choosing to have an abortion. She loved Michele’s development both as a wife and daughter of Christ. B said Michele’s parents, Marilyn and Jim were amazing people, as were the rest of her family. I have to agree. They portrayed what a Christian family should be like. B thought the contrast between the beginning and end chapters were beautiful.

B also loved going to Africa with Allan and Ray. B has always wanted to go to Africa since reading missionary stories and having a close personal friend serving as a missionary in Zambia. All in all, she really enjoyed The Desire.

We both really want to read the first two books of the series and we cannot wait for the sequel to this one to find out more about Christina’s journey and that of Michele’s brother, Doug. I missed the fact there was a children’s lesson book, but B said she wants to read that as well.

I think this book has lessons in it, not just women or couples struggling with infertility, but lessons for everyone.

NewAir WCD-110SS Water Dispenser

NewAir WCD-110SS Water Dispenser

We drink a lot of water. We are currently on well water. The water itself is fine, however, we have to add salt since the home has an on-demand water softener system. It is the salt in the water that makes our water no-so-great. That is why we were excited to be offered a NewAir WCD-110SS Water Dispenser. No more carting home 10 1-gallon water jugs since we can use!

The NewAir WCD-110SS Water Dispenser is a nice little appliance to have in our home. It has a stainless steel front and black sides and back. It has a slim size, which makes it a great choice for smaller homes or areas within the home. We put ours just off the kitchen in the master suite hallway since there is no room in our small kitchen.

NewAir WCD-110SS Water Dispenser Specs

~ 33.65 lbs.
~ 1-year manufacturer’s limited warranty.
~ Removable plastic drip tray.
~ Hot & Cold water dispenser
~ Two push button controls – the hot water has a safety regulated “hot water” push button, making it safe for children.
~ Light indicators.
~ Hot water 176°F – 203°F.
~ Cold water 41°F – 50°F.
~ Compatible with 2-gallon, 3-gallon or 5-gallon bottles of water.
~ Features a stainless steel water tank which delivers a plastic free taste when drinking both hot and cold water.
~ UL Certified.
~ Easy no installation; simply remove it from its packaging, add a water bottle and plug in!

NewAir WCD-110SS Water Dispenser Review

We really like having the water dispenser. It saves on boiling a kettle of water, making it very convenient to get a cup of tea or hot chocolate. It is holding up well under our family of ten’s use of it. Granted the younger children cannot get hot water unless they have two of them to maneuver the child-safety feature on the buttons! It is easier for the children to get a drink and a lot less mess too, unless of course they overfill or spill, which they have yet to do, thankfully.

The only thing I really do not like about the unit is the fact that the buttons to dispense hot and cold water, as well as the child-safety button are all plastic. I fear they will eventually snap or break under heavy, extended use. I hope I am wrong but only time will tell. We have had it for nearly a month now, but we did limit the children’s use until this past week when I knew I would be doing the review.

Overall, the NewAir WCD-110SS Water Dispenser has been a welcome addition to our home and I am looking forward getting much use out of it.

Go Back to School with Harvest Snaps #HarvestSnapsFan

This post was created in partnership with Harvest Snaps. I have been compensated for this post in the form of product. However, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Looking for a healthy back to school snack for you and your children? Try Harvest Snaps ! Harvest Snaps come in six different flavors: Snapea Crisps Black Pepper, Snapea Crisps Lightly Salted, Snapea Crisps Wasabi, Snapea Crisps Caesar, Lentil Snaps Tomato Basil, Lentil Snaps Onion Time.

Our children really liked these snacks. I only got to try a couple and thought they were powdery tasting. It was a weird taste bud war going on, seriously, because I wanted to like them. Our youngest found the Green Peas Black Pepper flavored one hot, so he only liked the non-hot flavors. These made a great after school or before bedtime snack. Of course, I forgot to take photos of them snacking! Other ways I can see Harvest Snaps being used are: back-to-School lunchboxes, post-workout snack, lunch sides, crunchy salad toppings and for sports fans gameday snacks and tailgating events.

~ Snapea Crisps are made from 70% pea. Lentil Snaps are made from 65% lentil.
~ Harvest Snaps offers a healthier snacking option. They are baked, not fried.
~ Harvest Snaps are all-natural and guilt-free. Each of the 6 flavors are high fiber and protein, and low in sodium and fat.
~ These healthy treats are a great snack for the whole family, except my hubby did not try them. I think we forgot to ask him! Oops…
~ They are non-GMO.

Nowhere to Turn by Lynette Eason

FFR image for posts

Nowhere to Turn Lynette Eason

Nowhere to Turn by Lynette Eason is the second book in the Hidden Identity series. You can read my review to book one, No One to Trust, here. This book series is Christian fiction/Romantic Suspense.

I really liked this book. Once again, I was kept guessing and was rather surprised when one of the characters in the book turned out to be someone completely different. Even my 14-year-old mentioned she was not expecting that twist after she finished the book.

This book review fell due at an interesting time with the Ray Rice and Janay Palmer fiasco came to a head this week. Nowhere to Turn deals with the sensitive and hard (how’s that for a contradictory sentence?) subject of domestic violence and abuse of women and children. The main character, Danielle Harding, of this book leaves her abusive husband and discovers there is nowhere to turn. She enlists Operation Refuge to help her escape the vicious cycle of abuse and violence against her and her 11-year-old-son. They literally run for their lives.

I liked the suspense of the book. It was fast paced. My 14-year-old loved the characters because they were all so different. This is what else she said, “At every turn in the book, I felt like I was with Dani and Simon. I loved learning about the other characters, about their fears and the things that made them go – their drive. I did not like Dani’s husband, Kurt, or his brother Stuart. Stuart was creepy and obsessive with Dani. I loved the ending. The nice characters deserved happiness.” I quite agree with her!

Two thumbs up from us!

We were able to review 6 of their products…and were pleased with everything! One thing we LOVED about the products is that they are SAFE and EFFECTIVE for the ENTIRE family! Yes … moms and dads can use this and it works great!!!

20140819_141003
Below I will highlight each of the products received and what we thought about them. But overall they were awesome!

Moisturizing Baby Shampoo and Wash

Oatmilk-Calendula-Shampoo

 

 

 

 

This is an amazing product…especially for those with dry or sensitive skin. My daughter has eczema and it worked great on her skin. But I also used this product and I liked it too… although I do not suffer from dry skin… I do tend to get drier on my legs after bathing …and this worked great…no drying like I usually get! PLus, the scent is wonderful and do not forget their seal of Nutri-Soothe blend!

 

contains-seal

 

 

 

 

Moisturizing Baby Lotion

Oatmilk-Calendula-Lotion-2

 

 

 

 

 

 

Who says baby lotion can’t be for the whole family! This is a such a great product that we all started using it after bath time! It goes on smooth and absorbs well to hydrate the skin. Since there are no chemicals we never have to worry about irritants! This is a wonderful lotion suited for baby or the entire family!

 

contains-seal

 

 

 

 

Swim and Sport Shampoo & Wash

Cucumber-Aloe-Vera-Shampoo-2

 

 

 

This was by far our favorite product! My children are avid swimmers and swim at least twice a week in a chlorinated pool. We liked that this was a shampoo & wash specially formulated for swimmers and/or sports players. One thing the product does is removes chlorine… which was a plus for us! No more drying out of the hair…only hydration!

 

 

 

 

Swim & Sport Conditioner

swim-sport-smoothing-conditioner

 

 

 

 

This product is a great addition to your shampooing regimen after play or swim! Get ready for hydrated hair! No more dry feeling! I used this on my three children AND myself after swimming and boy does it make your hair feel good! I LOVE that it is natural …why use a chemical laden shampoo to get rid of chlorine…. go the natural route!

 

 

The next two products I did not get a chance to use because school has just started and my children have not gotten that dreaded “lice” letter yet… you know the one  I am talking about…”there has been a case of head lice reported in your child’s classroom” Ugh…makes me shudder! Well … shudder no more! There are two great products that will repel lice and make moms breathe a bit easier when that letter comes home!

 

Lice Repel Shampoo

Rosemary-Tea-Tree-Shampoo

 

 

 

I like this product because it is a preventative shampoo…use it before a lice letter even comes home. YOu can send your child to a sleepover or camp without worry if you use this first! If you get one of those dreaded letters use this shampoo to ward off the little pests!

 

 

 

 

Lice Repel Conditioning Spray

Rosemary-Tea-Tree-Spray-2

 

 

 

The final product and perhaps the most intriguing of all is the spray! This detangles , conditions and repels lice all at the same time! NO more worries about lice ending up in your home!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Over all Babo botanicals are WONDERFUL products at a great competitive price in natural market! Check out their site and shop today you will not be displeased!

Book Review ~ Made by Raffi

FFR image for posts

Celebrated singer and actor Craig Pomranz debuts his new children’s book, Made by Raffi, that embraces differences and promotes diversity in children.

Synopsis:

Raffi is a shy boy who does not like noisy games and is often teased at school. But when he gets the idea of making a scarf for his dad’s birthday, he is full of enthusiasm even though the other children think it is girly to knit. Then the day draws near for the school pageant, and there is one big problem: no costume for the prince. And that’s when Raffi has his most brilliant idea of all — to make a prince’s cape. On the day of the pageant, Raffi’s cape is the star of the show.

Our thoughts:

This was an EXCELLENT book! We enjoyed sharing it with our children. The story , message and illustrations all exceeded our expectations. The message that runs through the book is acceptance … it is so great to see a book written from this perspective. We often read books about a little girl being a “tom boy” but rarely …dare I say never do we read about a boy being a “tom girl”. This book did an excellent job tackling a subject about acceptance.

I cannot reiterate how much we enjoyed reading this book to our children. It was a GREAT way to start the school year and facilitated discussions each time we read the text …and even each time my children ran into a child that did not fit into the square box as I like to call it! I love books that help convey a message and values that I am trying to convey to my children… this book did just that!

Though thoughtful text and vivid illustrations the author have a winner here in my opinion! Go ahead and peruse the text over at amazon (you can even look inside the text and preview the book)  …you will not be disappointed!

This was such a great bubble bath! My children really enjoyed being able to use a bubble bath again! The traditional bubble baths i buy in the store ALL irritate their skin and we have just forgone the pleasure of a sudsy bath time…but now I am pleased to say my children can bask in a sudsy bath once again with this product! …and boy are they delighting in bath time now that there are bubbles!

detangler

 

 

 

 

This Conditioner uses organic & natural ingredients to provide an incredibly soft and manageable finish for your babies’ hair. Using ingredients such as Organic Aloe.

 

 

We LOVE that this product is a leave in or shampoo out product. My daughters’ hair is so easily tangled and this product is AWESOME at relieving those tangles and making brushing a breeze. We have used the product both as a leave in and have shampooed it out…either way it worked wonderfully! I can say that for hair that is severely tangled this worked well as a leave in conditioner to help alleviate the knots! My youngest is so pleased that the brushing routine in our house has gotten much easier with this product. No more crying when time to detangle!

Overall, Nature’s Baby Organics is doing a wonderful job at providing consumers with products that are Natural, organic and family friendly! We really enjoyed the product and hope you will take a moment to peruse their website and find your favorite products!

OUR REVIEW:

We received the ULTIMATE BACK TO SCHOOL COMBO from Mabel’s Labels.

Mabels Labels ultimate-back-to-school-combo2

~ Ultimate Back to School Combo

The Ultimate Back to School Combo is their bestselling combo. It has all the labels needed to identify children’s belongings and keep them out of the lost and found. This was really a great pack! There are so many labels you cannot help but label EVERYTHING! The labels come preprinted with the child’s name…so it makes labeling a breeze. I like that they are super sticky they stay where they are placed! We used the labels to mark all of my son’s school supplies, his backpack and gym shoes. After two weeks of school I can honestly say these labels stick! Any other labels would have been long gone by now…not Mabel’s! The Ultimate Back to School Combo includes the following:

40 skinny-minis ~ 50 Tag mates ~ 16 Shoe Labels ~ 2 Teeny Tags

(Choose from 4 limited edition solid color palettes or 40+ multi-colored designs, plus 3 special back-to-school motifs (bus, books and apple)!)

There are so many tags that if by chance (very slim) you happen to have to replace a tag you will have extras to replace the missing tag. I honestly am not worried about having to replace any tags… except for maybe a shoe tag. But…with 16 shoe tags I can easily replace a tag if it goes missing (which I doubt it will). This is such a GREAT combo…can I say AWESOME!!!

In the past I have gotten the children their own person first and last name tags…but this year since I decided just to get our last name printed on the tags so we could get more bang for our buck! The labels were used more frequently and were easier to use since I was not fishing around for whose label was whose when labeling school supplies… just slapped on the last name label! … NOt to mention it saved me $$$ I only had to order one combo instead of 3 (I have 3 children)… and let me tell you I STILL HAVE TAGS LEFT OVER…even splitting the one combo 3 ways! AWESOME!!!

Overall, we are ecstatic about Mabel’s Labels! This is such a resilient product…that will LAST! Not only are the products hardy but they are kid friendly and have such nice designs to choose from…you cannot go wrong with Mabel’s labels for your labeling needs!

I am definitely a fan of Mabel’s labels and will be back to order more products for my labeling needs!

You can find this product and many more at mabelslabels.com. I would recommend this site to ANYONE who needs to label products! They are so versatile!

In Perfect Time by Sarah Sundin

FFR image for posts

In Perfect Time by Sarah Sundin


In Perfect Time
by Sarah Sundin is book three in the Nightingale series. Each book is a stand alone book. The series is set in WWII and is about flight nurses and the men serving in the war. I have enjoyed this series. You can see my reviews of the first two books of the series here and here.

In Perfect Time by Sarah Sundin

I enjoyed the adventure and intrigue of Lt. Roger Cooper’s flights in this particular novel. It kept me wanting to turn the pages. A couple of flights are based on true WWII flights, which my husband found hard to believe when I relayed information to him. He’s a skeptic though and a war buff so he likes the facts and the flights were pretty amazing feats so that’s why he was a doubter at first.

There is a definite Christian theme in this book, as there are in most of the books I read. This particular book’s theme centered on the fact that God loves sinners no matter what they have done. We are all redeemable and do not need to earn forgiveness but to accept it as the gift it is.

In Perfect Time provided me with the back stories of a couple of characters featured in the first two books. It was nice to finally learn more about them and what made them tick, as well as the follow-up story of some of the other characters.

I even enjoyed the romantic side of the book this time. It was realistic, romantic, humorous and heart-breaking all rolled into one.

There was an underlying theme of parents who do not display confidence in their children’s talents and abilities. For me this was sad to read about, it made me feel sorry for the characters and question if I am expressing my belief in my children so they know that I truly believe in them and what they are capable of doing with their lives. The characters in this book only learned in adulthood what should have been impressed on them in childhood – you are talented, you are worthy, you are capable and you can do anything you put your mind to. Every parent should instill self-belief into their children, especially if the child does not have it in themselves. What a responsibility we have as parents!

I give In Perfect Time two thumbs up and recommend it to all history lovers and romantics.

logos-no-gmos-2d

This is such a wonderful list it makes my heart smile knowing that I can bring healthy non-chemical laden product to my family!

We were pleased to receive and review the following products:

Kids Body Wash
Natural Detangler
Daily Spray Detangler
Peppermint foot lotion
Body Lotion
Turbinado Brown Sugar Scrub

20140807_153209

Let me start off by saying that the scent of these products is heavenly!! I always wonder and am pensive about the scent of organic products… but EVERY product I received is something that smells inviting … something I WANT to smell and lavish my hair and body!

Kids Body Wash

images

This product is a great addition to any household! We liked it because it comes in a larger size 16 oz size! Most of the time when I am shopping for organic natural shampoo I find it in an 8oz size…. this was a treat! It lathered well and has a pleasant orange Blossom scent. Most of all I liked that it is gentle on the skin. The product is also moisturizing which is an added plus! My youngest daughter has Eczema and since this product is not made with harsh chemicals or synthetic additives it has not made the Eczema flare up as other products can.

 

Natural Detangler

download

Let me tell you…I am always looking for a detangler for my hair (naturally wave to medium curl) and my daughters’ hair (thick and long). This is a great leave in deep conditioning/detangling option! I liked that the product does what it says… “effortlessly and easily” unravels tangles! It does this!!! My children take swim lessons every Monday and after they shower I like to brush out their hair…sometimes because of the harness of the chlorine their hair gets brittle and dry…and tangles easily! We like this product because it is easily portable in the jar that it comes in and it makes the hair easy to brush through. We have not only reserved the conditioner to swim days … but have made it part of our hair care regimen (yes even for mom…it worked wonders o my hair)!

Mom’s hair… I used this product and loved it on my hair…I am “air dry” styling type of person so this product worked great for me! Just put some on run a comb and fingers through my hair and I am good to go and my hair gets enriched with extra vitamins, proteins, and nutrients!

Daily Spray Detangler

download (1)

This is a STAPLE for kids hair… let me tell you that it is a hard to find a good detangler. This one is by far one of the best we have used! I LOVE that it comes in a large bottle…but would love it even more if it came in a travel size…so we could take it to the pool! Anyway… we Loved that the product has no harsh chemicals to strip and ruin the hair follicles… this is GREAT. Secondly the product reduces breakage while combing. While we sometimes have breakage due to knots in hair this product actually helped alleviate that issue. When used right after showering the hair is easily combed through and no breakage occurs… What a GREAT thing, no breakage helps keep hair healthy!

Peppermint Foot Lotion

 

download (3)What a YUMMY treat for your feet! This was so soothing and luxurious. I loved being able to try it! First off the scent is heavenly! Peppermint sooths and eases my tired feet and arouses my senses at the same time! It also began to moisturize and rescue my poor dry and callused feet. It penetrates the skin immediately and goes to work… I like that it has a nice feel and does not leave my hands slimy… I have had experience with other foot lotions where the product was soooo slimy/greasy I had to wipe my hands with a towel afterwards because it just would not absorb.

Body Lotion

 

 

Natural Body Lotion

download (6)This lotion was also a quick to absorb into the skin! Can you tell I am a fan of quick absorption? I love it when a lotion goes on smooth and actually hydrates and moisturizes the skin instead of just sitting on top of the skin! This lotion is wonderful! It comes in a large pump container, which is great!!! It makes it easy to pump and apply after the shower! The scent is heavenly…it has a sweet orange blossom smell with other blended flowers that makes this lotion double as a wonderful aromatic experience!

Turbinado Brown Sugar Scrub

download (4)Can you say INDULGENT??? This is such a luxurious addition to any shower ritual! … I LOVE body scrubs because they exfoliate and moisturize the skin leaving it soft and supple! This product does just that with NATURAL/ORGANIC ingredients! (YEAH!) This scrub has replaced my old Burt’s Bees Scrub … which I though was good…boy was I wrong this is SO MUCH BETTER! What about the scent?

 

 

 

natural-organic-4d

What about price? The Just Naturals line of products are VERY well priced for organic/natural products… they offer larger sizes for a great price! At a farmers market or retail store you cannot get the larger sizing or the QUALITY!!!

 

 

Please take a moment to visit justnaturalskincare.com you will not be displeased! Their products are SO awesome I cannot wait to try other items from their product line.
