Our Review:

Even though we do not own the companion book 99 Stories from the Bible… this book stands on its own! What a great reference for children’s prayer. I love using this text in my religious education classes to facilitate prayer and understanding with my students. My own children also love the prayers within. This is a wonderful book not to be passed by!

After giving birth, undergoing surgery or recovering from an illness or injury, the scramble to obtain the best medical supplies for home care proves a difficult task. With a list of necessities from a physician or nurse in hand, one may find themselves bouncing from pharmacy to drugstore in search of the right products, amongst a sea of varieties and brands.

Cardinal Health™ Hospital Quality at Home™ products make the transition from hospital to home recovery a smoother and more successful one. With products that aim to give you professional quality with the ease of at-home use, the focus remains on healing and recovery.

· The Cardinal HealthTM Advanced Wound Care products cover a wide range of needs that aid healing, offer long-lasting protection, and help provide a moist environment, which helps promote wound healing.

· The Cardinal HealthTM Advanced Wound Care products are ideal for local wounds such as blisters, minor cuts and scrapes, minor burns and minor surgical wounds.

· Hospital-acquired pressure ulcers, sometimes called a bedsore[3], are the second most common patient safety incident: Nearly 36 for every 1,000 hospitalizations.[4]

· Under the supervision of a health care professional, the Hydrocolloid and Silicone Bordered Foams may be used for diabetic, venous and arterial ulcers (common types of leg and foot ulcers[5]) and early stage bedsores (stage I and II pressure ulcers).

· Under the supervision of a health care professional, some use cases for transparent dressings include early stage bedsores (stage I and II pressure ulcers).

Our Review:

The Cardinal at home products are great. We received a plethora of products that i wish I had post surgery. i have had 3 C-sections and my husband has had 5 knee surgeries…so i know all too well what is need and wanted in at home care products!

Below is a photo of the items we received in the pack
20151018_122854

20151020_181746

The items I found extremely helpful within the pack were the bordered silicone foam and the transparent dressing. These items are extremely useful when having to redress wounds or sutures. The other nice item within the pack was the protective underpadding… this proves useful if the patient cannot move and you do not want to ruin any bedding.

Pokergeist ~ Book Review

FFR image for posts

516wtkHW0vL._SX320_BO1,204,203,200_

About the Book:
“Sometimes life, as well as death, is about second chances. Luckless Telly Martin doesn’t have a clue. An awful gambler trying to scrape by as a professional poker player, he becomes the protégé of world famous poker champion Clutch Henderson. The only catch…Clutch is a ghost. Telly and Clutch must navigate the seedy gambling underbelly of Las Vegas learning to trust each other in order to win the elusive International Series of Poker, repair their shattered personal relationships and find redemption in this life and the hereafter.

I must admit that the title of this book did not thrill me when I first saw it. I am not interested in poker or the gambling scene. However the supernatural does catch my attention. Overall this was a good book. The general setting did not grasp me as a reader but the supernatural aspect did. I urge you to push past misconceptions about the gambling scene and pick up the book .. .it is very interesting.

Pick up a copy on AMAZON today! While on amazon check out some other Michael Phillips Cash books!

TBBlood Test

FFR image for posts

“I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for the TB Blood Test. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”

As nurturers, we constantly try everything in our power to ensure the well-being of our loved ones. But, let’s face it, planning ahead for every situation proves impossible, and we welcome help with open arms. With our busy schedules, especially during routine back to school check-ups, receiving the most reliable care and accurate results leaves less time spent worrying.

Providing more ease, more time, and more certainty-families everywhere rest easier knowing their loved ones remain safe and healthy – allowing more time during the back-to-school season and throughout the year.

While trying to stay healthy , thoughts of a TB blood test is in the air.
When think of TB tests we usually think of the skin test… well there is a better alternative! The TB Blood test! Why is the blood test better? The blood test gives more accurate results, which in turn are more reliable.

The TB blood test is the only available method of testing for TB with completely objective results. Other tests, such as the skin test, are subjective and open to visual interpretation.

How does the blood test differ? Well, with the TB skin test, another visit to the doctor for a physical examination is necessary after a few days. If you are infected with TB, a raised lump will develop at the site where the tuberculin was injected. However, a previous TB vaccination is likely to cause a false-positive result and individuals may also experience severe itching at the puncture site. The TB blood test allows you to get accurate results in just one visit leading to meaningful benefits – more ease, more time, more certainty.

Kregel Book Tour ~ Bible Stories Gone Crazy

FFR image for posts

9781781281901

About the Book:

Created by Josh Edwards & Emiliano Migliardo
Eight Bible stories are depicted in bright color and comic, cartoony illustrations. There is a sentence or two explaining the scene at the top, and then details to spot, mistakes to find, and questions to answer along the sides of the picture, such as, “Did Noah’s workmen REALLY have power tools?” and “How many rabbits are in the picture?” Children will love scouring the illustrations to find the answers and spot more amusing details in the busy artwork of Emiliano Migliardo.

The stories are Noah and His Great Ark, Moses Crossing the Red Sea, Joshua and the Fall of Jericho, David and Goliath, Daniel and the Lions, Jonah and the Big Fish, Feeding the 5,000, and Man Through the Roof.- See more at: http://www.kregel.com/childrens-activities/bible-stories-gone-crazy/#sthash.4UqMY8i4.dpuf

 

Our Review:

This was simply a delightful book!

The cartoony stories were a hit with my family. My children saw this book come in the mail and immediately picked it up and began to read! I was impressed … usually I have to show them the book and ask them to peruse it first … this time they were chomping at the bit to read it before I even asked! Enough said! We loved the fact that the pages are sturdy and of lamitate quality which means that the book will last and last! We also loved that it has an “look and find” aspect to the book… it makes the children search for items in the story while learning. The text also asks open ended questions that make for great family discussion on the stories! This book is a WIN WIN!

Fin this book and more at our friends at KREGEL Publications!

2015 Toyota Camry

FFR image for posts

As a mother of two kids I need lots of room in a car when I’m on the go.  I like to have extra clothes, diapers, toys, reusable shopping bags, movies, etc., etc., etc. in my car at all times.  On top of that I need room for groceries and shopping bags.  I had the pleasure of driving around a 2015 Toyota Camry for the past week.  Let’s just say, I loved it from the beginning.

IMG_5924

My first impression of the car was, wow that’s nice, but…there’s no way all of my stuff will fit.  I was pleasantly surprised once I put the car seats in and all of our stuff how much room we still had.  When I went grocery shopping all of my bags fit with room to spare.  If I didn’t have kids and my backseat was available, I love that the back seats fold down for even more extra storage.

IMG_5941

The car felt very smooth, and had great pick up!  My kids called it the cruising car.  At one point I was driving on the highway and was going 90 without even knowing it.  My favorite feature of the Toyota Camry was when a car was in my blind spot when I wanted to change lanes, the car would beep.  The car would also beep when I would get too close to the shoulder or the middle line.  I miss those features in the car I’m currently driving.

IMG_6020

The Toyota Camry had all of the bells and whistles imaginable.  Back up camera, GPS, tons and tons of apps, keyless entry, and more.  My kids really enjoyed the sunroof.  Overall I would say this is a fantastic car.  Very roomy, great features, fast, and great for all families.

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 Mini Custom Name Stickers: 38mm x 8mm (1-1/2″ x    5/16″)
  • 50 Tag Mates™ Stick On Clothing Labels: 21mm x            10mm (13/16″ x 3/8″)
  • 16 Custom Shoe Stickers: 33mm (1.3″)
  • 2 Personalized Mini Tags: 30mm x 20mm (1-1/4″ x            3/4″)

(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!

This is an awesome read. Nothing short of what is expected from the creative mind of Michael Phillip Cash. I loved reading the twists and turns throughout the book. I would love to tell you what happened with Wes and the “program” but what fun would that be for you as a reader. You MUST pick up a copy of this book and be as pleased as I was leafing through the pages!

You will not be disappointed!
