The Art of Work and free copy of the book offer!


The path to your life's work is both difficult and mysterious, which is why few finish the journey. The Art of Work is about discovering your true calling—that thing you were born to do.

As Jeff Goins explains, the search begins with passion but does not end there. Only when our interests connect with the needs of the world do we begin living for a larger purpose. Those who experience this intersection experience something exceptional and enviable.

Though it is rare, such a life is attainable by anyone brave enough to try.

Through personal experience, compelling stories, and current research on the mysteries of motivation and talent, Jeff shows readers how to find their vocation and what to expect along the way.





Jeff Goins is a full-time writer who lives just outside of Nashville, Tennessee, with his wife, son, and border collie. He has authored three other books: The In-Between,Wrecked, and You Are a Writer. His website, Goinswriter.com, has been visited by more than four million people from all over the world. He humbly considers himself the world's foremost expert on guacamole.

Rasmus and the Vagabond


I loved Pippi Longstocking! I still have one of the books kicking around my house somewhere. The same woman who wrote Pippi's exciting adventures also wrote this book! What a cool way to bring back a small part of your childhood than to read a blast from the past book! 
If you have a child or grandchild between the ages of 8 & 15, this 180 page book would make a super gift. Pass the love of reading a "real" aka actual paper in hand book, down to the next generation!
Even though it is set in the 50's, the longing of a child to want loving parents and to be loved, is timeless. 
My daughters read the book after I did and they enjoyed it as well. 
From Amazon.com summary: After running away from an orphanage, nine-year-old Rasmus finds the world a cold and unfriendly place until he meets an extraordinary tramp called "Paradise Oscar." Together they meet more adventure than they ever imagined, solve a mystery, catch the culprits, and find Rasmus a home. 
Astrid Lindgren, who gave the world Pippi Longstocking, sets this action-packed classic of children’s literature in the Swedish countryside before the age of automobiles. This is one book you’ll want to read more than once.*
Want to win a copy of this awesome book? Just leave me a comment telling me your favorite book and your email address, so I can email you if you win.

#coupons 




I was skeptical when I first got this bottle. I like gummy vitamins and I didn't think this would fit into the same category as them. I will admit, I was wrong! They do taste like gummie vitamins. So you definitely want to make sure your kiddos do not get into this! They had a good consistency and let me tell you, they do their thing! It did take me about 4-5 days for my body to adjust to the "results" that happen when you first start taking any weight loss product that help get rid of excess fats. 


But other than that, after my body adjusted I have had no other side effects. I have only lost 4 pounds but I have only been taking it for 2 almost 3 weeks.

Choice of winners and opinions are 100% my own and NOT influenced by monetary compensation. I did receive a sample of the product in exchange for this review and post."

As a typical teenager, Travis Freeman (Mark Hapka) is a local hero both on and off the high-school football field in his small Kentucky town, but in 1997, Travis contracts an infection that destroys his optic nerve and renders him blind overnight. With the loving help and concern of his parents, physical therapist, coach and best friend, Travis demonstrates what true bravery is: He continues to compete on the gridiron and helps his team advance to the state finals.

 #23BLAST


Alot of people say teens are lazy.
Alot say teens have no ambition.

This movie is proof that both of those statements are wrong.

This is the story of a determined young man, who didnt give up and neither did those around him. 

I loved watching this with my teenagers. I only got my son to watch because its football. But even he agreed this is a good movie!

A+ from this reviewer!

Order-loving, thirty-something Rachel, and her laid-back, messy mother, Becky, are opposites in many ways. But they both believe that women long for a life that nourishes them inside and out. In this book, the mother-daughter duo will help you make that dream a reality by tackling the “Top 10 Stressors” that mess with a woman’s mind, such as:

•Cluttered Surroundings •Exhaustion of parenting
•Time-starved marriages •Feeling like a spiritual slacker
•Crowded Schedules •Negative Body Image

Following a series of trial-and-error experiments, Becky and Rachel share laugh-out-loud stories, fascinating research, and practical tips to design and a nourished life that fits  your personality. By learning how to embrace “nourishing compromises,” you’ll never put happiness on hold again. If you are feeling drained, discontent, or discouraged, join a couple of understanding, entertaining companions on the journey from overwhelmed to nourished.
Becky Johnson is the author, coauthor, or collaborator of more than forty books. She’s a natural storyteller who has inspired and entertained audiences for years. Most recently she co-authored  We Laugh, We Cry, We Cook alone with a blog by the same name with her daughter, Rachel Randolph. She and her husband, Greg, live in Denver, Colorado. Website/blog:  www.laughcrycook.com

Rachel Randolph writes and speaks with humor and honesty about parenting a toddler, young married life, and her mostly plant-based cooking adventures. Rachel is married to Jared, a high school football and baseball coach. They live near Dallas, Texas with their son, Jackson.  Nourished is her second book.
Website/Blog:  www.nourishedmama.com 

These women have written a superb book! I read most of it sitting in the dentist office waiting on my daughter. They inject humor and they have been there so they do understand the stress and how women then to "forget themselves". 

I too have let myself go to keep up with the kids and have not taken care of myself physically or mentally as I should. But after reading this book, I have decided I will do just that! If we dont take care of ourselves, who will???

One entrant in the easy entry below will win a copy of this superb book. It would make a super Mothers day gift!

Why I wont watch 50 Shades of Grey......





I will not be seeing the movie "50 Shades of Grey" when it opens, or ever. 
Here are my reasons why.

1.  I do not want my husband to watch porn, so why should I? Yes its in a theater and alot is edited, but I would not want him to watch a male version of this movie.

2.  Making domestic sexual abuse glamorous, does nothing to empower women. 


3.  “Some of the Red Room stuff was uncomfortable,” Jamie Dornan said in an interview with Glamour about scenes with co-star Dakota Johnson. “There were times when Dakota was not wearing much, and I had to do stuff to her that I’d never choose to do to a woman.” When the male star of the movie says this, it should speak volumes to people.


4.  There is a difference between abuse and real BDSM that couples enjoy in the privacy of their own homes. This movie, as well as the book, lacks the discerning line that is drawn between them. Those in the BDSM community have loudly criticized the book and movie for not portraying the lifestyle correctly or accurately.

5.  The book is fiction. I believe it should have stayed in the book. I did read about half of the book, but it got to be a bit much for me. Again, I don't want my husband to read porn, so why should it be ok for me to????

I am not a prude. I have 7 children so I do know about "things". I believe what happens in the bedroom, should stay in the bedroom. I will not share more than that! I do not want to see the sexual part of this movie. I wish to keep Mr Grey out of my head while I am with my husband.
