Harlem Globetrotters, One of the BEST Family Traditions!

I was not compensated in any way for this post. My opinions are my own.

When I was an early age teen,my daddy took me to see the Globetrotters every time they came to Bangor,Me! Back then I thought they were the best thing ever! I loved basketball and they were so funny! Those memories are still with me today as one of the best times I ever had with my daddy!
Not only do they make you laugh, they also support various causes like Bully Prevention, Operation Child and many more! 

The Harlem Globetrotters began in 1926 as the Savoy Big Five. Now more than 85 years and 20,000 games later, the team has become one of the most recognizable franchises in sports.

I personally think this is one of the best things to go to on a date or family night. Clean,funny and fun! It is also a great memory for you and your family to look back on and say "Remember when we went to the Globetrotters game?"

Grace of God DVD Review

"Disclosure (in accordance with the FTC’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising”): Many thanks to Propeller Consulting, LLC for providing this prize for the giveaway. 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.

Detective Bill Broadly, who lost his faith years ago, is called to investigate the disappearance of the local church’s collection plate. $30,000 as a matter of fact.  As he questions its various church members, rumors swirl as more congregants learn about the theft. When one unexpected church-goer confesses to stealing the funds, the confession resurrects Broadly’s views about God, and helps him see that through faith and belief there really is rebirth and redemption.

Grace of God has a three important lessons for all of us to keep in mind. Stealing on every level is wrong, no matter how small the item. Doing the wrong thing for the right reasons is still wrong and no matter what we do wrong, the grace of God is real. 
I dont think little ones would really enjoy this movie as there is alot, and I mean alot, of talking. I think older teens and adults would get it so much better. I did watch this alone as everyone in the family was asleep but me. As much as I enjoyed it, it was in my opinion, kinda boring. But if you like those types of movies, you will be all set.

Confessions of A Prodigal Son: A movie you didnt think you wanted to see but are glad you did!

What story is your life telling?
I was allowed a special screening, and offered monetary compensation, of the movie Confessions of a Prodigal Son in exchange for my honest review. My opinions are my own and have not been influenced in any way.
Confessions of a Prodigal Son is a modern-day retelling of the Prodigal Son story that Jesus famously told. 
See the full trailer HERE on YouTube
This will be released on DVD on March 24, 2015 and will be available at stores such as WalMart.
It is a coming-of-age tale following Sean (Nathan Clarkson) as he rebels and leaves his home, family and father (Kevin Sorbo formerly known as Hercules) to figure out life on his own. Two years later--while still on the journey to find life's answers--Sean suddenly finds himself questioning everything he thought he knew as he is confronted by a professor (Darwin Harris) who challenges Sean to see his life as a story; a best friend (Azel James) walking a dangerous path; and a strong and beautiful young woman (Rachael Lee) who is on her own journey to answers. Each one of these elements causes Sean to greater examine the choices he is making.
The story is one of drama, laughter, relationships, faith, and redemption, ultimately asking the question "Can broken stories have happy endings?"

One quote from the movie that really stuck with me was this:

**The day we recognize our life is a story, we begin to hear all these voices for the first time. Each one calling out to us telling us the different stories we could tell and the different characters we could become. I think one of the hardest choices is to decide which ones to listen to.**
I can fully appreciate both sides of the characters in this movie. Hearing the story straight out of the Bible growing up I always kinda scoffed at the meaning. As a woman in her early 20's I started to understand the meaning. I was almost like the main character. Stubborn, defiant and thinking I knew it all. Thank god my parents were there for me when reality hit and I needed them. Now as a parent, I can feel the love that I know my parents had for me when I look at my own children. No matter what they do could make me love them less. 
Visit the Facebook page.

While the movie has it slow parts, and it did throw me on a few flash backs, it did move along as the story should and kept my interest. The characters were believable and you could feel the emotions as they passed through the screen. 

I will be adding this to my DVD collection.

Jesus Sees Us Book Review

"Disclosure (in accordance with the FTC’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising”): Many thanks to Propeller Consulting, LLC for providing this prize for the GIVEAWAY. 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.

This set would make the PERFECT Easter Gift! Add this to a couple of treats that you would give your child and make a cute basket. In our home we do not do the Easter Bunny. I have stuck with the no Easter Bunny thing with all the kids. Yes we give chocolate bunnies and such, but we try to keep the reason for the season up front. Thats what makes this gift set the best! Plus, its a gift that keeps giving. Not only the book, to read over and over, but the doll to play with and to keep in a childs mind about Jesus. My 7yo's, love to play with the book and the doll. Yes they are boys. My 9 yo daughter will read the book to them and they actually listen.
The words are child friendly, small and short. The pictures are drawn to appeal to everyones attention, even adults.
About the book & doll

Jesus Sees Us was created by two mothers of preschool-ages children looking for an engaging and relatable way to introduce Jesus and their Faith to their children

· Includes a soft body Doll with a hard molded head and a hard covered Lesson Book

· Appropriate for children ages 2-6

· The Doll has a warm and loving face and inviting, open arms that mirror the image of the illustrations in the Lesson Book

· Lesson Book includes illustrated Biblical stories of Jesus with Scripture reference and correlating lesson on how we can model our behavior like Jesus today

· A wonderful tool to help your child foster a personal relationship with Jesus at a very young age that will last a lifetime
·        Jesus Sees Us Website
·        Available through website and with link:
·        $10 OFF COUPON CODE  JSBlog10

Imagine your children took the same interest and wonder in Jesus and the Christian message as they did in princesses, fairies, and elves… Jesus Sees Us is a packaged Jesus Christ doll that has the same comforting power as a child’s favorite toy or blanket, but is rooted in lessons that last a lifetime. Children respond to the comfort of tangible items when they are young, so why not make that item Jesus and the comfort He gives to ignite their faith? The accompanying book is a tool to assist you in engaging your child and starting the conversation about Jesus’ teachings.

By the time a child turns three years old, he or she already has the capability to relate to Jesus. Children can understand that, like them, Jesus was a baby with parents who loved Him. They can understand that Jesus grew up to be a man who loved everyone and taught people to do the same. Children become excited and inquisitive when they can master these facts, ultimately making them more open to deeper conversations and ideas about faith.

The Jesus Sees Us doll is an integral part of fostering your child’s initial introduction to Jesus. Even though we talk to our children about Jesus or take them to Sunday services, they are not always able to understand the importance of the Christian message. Jesus Sees Us is a tool that makes Jesus, His teachings, and the concept of faith both relatable and positive to young children by introducing Him as the loving and forgiving presence in our lives. The doll becomes the tangible connection to the stories and lessons in the book. He is the touchable source of comfort that a child can relate to. The Jesus Sees Us doll has a soft body and a warm, welcoming face. His arms and hands are open, inviting your child to hold him, engage with him, and pray with him. The Jesus Sees Us doll allows your child to “play out” the valuable and timeless lessons of the Bible.

I used this the other night, after a very long day and I took it in one of my drinks. It changed the taste of my drink a bit, but not very noticeable. I did have a bit more to drink than I should have, but did I mention it had been a loooooong day?! The best part was in the morning. I didn't have the hangover headache I usually get. I always get one no matter how much or little I have to drink! - the best way to prevent hangovers!

Old Wesport Spices

 *I was sent a variety of mixes and spices for my honest review. My opinions are my own. 
No other compensation was given.*

When given the chance to review these spices and mixes I jumped! I love to cook and bake. First I tried the Garlic and it was just as good as most Garlics I have used before.  The Mesquite was next and I used it in a chicken rub and as an additive to my fried and baked chicken. I liked it but the kiddos didnt. I think its more of an adult thing than a kids thing!
Then I made the Chicken Enchilada Soup.

I really liked it! I followed the directions, which were on the back of the packet of soup mix. I added tortilla chips and topped with sour cream. It was yummy! It tasted alot like the Hamburger Helper Taco Chips, or whatever its called! This is a definite reorder!!

You can visit Old Westport Spices by clicking HERE.
They even offer fundraising! (IMO Better than the same old crap fundraisers usually offer!)

A little about Old Westport Spices from their website:

Olde Westport Spice is a 34-year-old company that started in a family kitchen when owner and cook extraordinaire, Olde Bill (as he is affectionately known) began experimenting with recipes and creating spice blends to compliment his love for cooking. It wasn’t long before the spices were available in local Kansas City retail stores and then through mail order.

What started in 1981 in this Overland Park, Kansas home kitchen, has grown into Olde Westport Spice & Trading Co., a family-owned company operated by Kansas natives Bill and Judy Petersen along with their daughter, Ann Myers and son, Jeff Petersen, who designed their labels. The company has grown throughout its almost 30-year existence into a successful wholesale and online retail spice, seasoning and dry soup retailer based on its commitment to quality, customer service and reasonable prices.

 Only one entrant per mailing address, per giveaway. If you have won the same prize on another blog, you are not eligible to win it again. Winner is subject to eligibility verification.”


After a prominent senator's son is murdered, Capitol K-9 Unit captain Gavin McCord wants answers. The senator was a mentor to Gavin, and he'll stop at nothing to bring the killer to justice. With his team of elite K-9 cops and his loyal dog, Glory, at his side, Gavin discovers that a child at Cassie Danvers's nearby foster home may have witnessed the murder. He's drawn to the determined and beautiful woman, but she doesn't want him interviewing her traumatized charges. Yet trusting Gavin is the only way to stay one step ahead of the deadly gunman when Cassie becomes a target.

Shirlee McCoy has always loved making up stories. As a child she daydreamed elaborate tales in which she was the heroine — gutsy, strong and invincible. Though she soon grew out of her superhero fantasies, her love for storytelling never diminished.Shirlee knew early that she wanted to write inspirational fiction and began writing her first novel when she was a teenager. Still, it wasn't until her third son was born that she truly began pursuing her dream of being published. Three years later she sold her first book.Now a busy mother of four, Shirlee is a homeschool mom by day and an inspirational author by night. She and her husband and children live in Maryland and share their home with a dog and a guinea pig. *Shirlee's photo courtesy Giordano Photographics.

I was blessed to read one of Shirlee's books, Tracking Justice. When a boy goes missing from his bedroom, a police detective must assure a desperate single mother that he and his trusty bloodhound will find her son.

Normally I do not like romance or love stories. I read so many of my mom's Harlequin books growing up, I started dreading when she would hand me another book.
This was a story that took it slow and didn't push anything, even the first kiss. The way God and the faith of the main characters was portrayed was soft and not pushy. 
I believe I am hooked on these books!


One Winner will win:
A copy of Shirlee McCoy's Protection Detail in print.

Homeless Children in America? Yes its true!

(Click on link to the site)


Call 1-800-RUNAWAY if you are a teenager who is thinking of running from home, if you have a friend who has run and is looking for help, or if you are a runaway ready to go home.
Call 1-800-RUNAWAY if you care about a youth and want information on how you can help someone who may be at risk of running from home.
Call 1-800-RUNAWAY if you are a teacher looking for information to pass along to your students about youth homelessness or the reality of life on the streets.

This was a social experiment. Unfortunately, this is something that is happening all across America. its not only adults, but also families and children who have been abandoned by their families for unknown reasons. The part that got me was the number of people who just looked at this child and walked by. New Yorkers don't surprise me, but this is a child! They should be ashamed! I hope someone recognizes someone in the shots and sets them straight!

There are 3 classifications of homeless.


  • Persons most like the stereotyped profile of the “skid-row” homeless, who are likely to be entrenched in the shelter system and for whom shelters are more like long-term housing rather than an emergency arrangement. These individuals are likely to be older, and consist of the “hard-core unemployed”, often suffering from disabilities and substance abuse problems. Yet such persons represent a far smaller proportion of the population compared to the transitionally homeless. 


  • Transitionally homeless individuals generally enter the shelter system for only one stay and for a short period. Such persons are likely to be younger, are probably recent members of the precariously housed population and have become homeless because of some catastrophic event, and have been forced to spend a short time in a homeless shelter before making a transition into more stable housing. Over time, transitionally homeless individuals will account for the majority of persons experiencing homelessness given their higher rate of turnover. 


  • Those who frequently shuttle in and out of homelessness are known as episodically homeless. They are most likely to be young, but unlike those in transitional homelessness, episodically homeless individuals often are chronically unemployed and experience medical, mental health, and substance abuse problems.

*Taken from

Homeless youth is the one that tugs my heart the most. Homeless youth are sometime referred to as “unaccompanied” youth, are individuals under the age of 18 who lack parental, foster, or institutional care.

Here are a few facts:
  • Between 1.6 and 2.8 million youth runaway and/or are homeless in a year.
  • Youth age 12-17 are more at risk of homelessness than adults.
  • Homeless youth are evenly male-female, although females are more likely to seek help through shelters and hotlines.
  • Between 6% and 22% of homeless girls are estimated to be pregnant.
  • 46% of runaway and homeless youth reported being physically abused; 38% reported being emotionally abused; 17% reported being forced into unwanted sexual activity by a family or household member [Department of HHS, 1997].
  • 75% of homeless or runaway youth have dropped out or will drop out of school.
  • Between 20% and 40% of homeless youth identify as LGBT.

Luckily for the homeless youth in my area, there is The Shaw House.  From their website: *Shaw House in Bangor has provided vital services and support to over 7000 runaway, homeless and at-risk young people, aged between 10 and 23, since first opening its doors in 1991.*

There are many projects going around where scarves and gloves have been left around trees with notes attached saying, "Im not lost. If you are cold and need me, please take me."  I have even read of pastors giving out blankets and foil survival blankets to homeless vets. 

But it takes more than that to help. Contact your local shelter, food pantry or Community Center to see what they are in need of or what the people need.

WIN IT! Dial Miracle Oil

*The Dial Brand provided me with a full sized product to facilitate my review. All my opinions, as always, are my own.*

New Dial Miracle Oil Body Wash is infused with Marula Oil for beautifully, soft skin.

What is Marula Oil?  Marula oil is extracted from the kernels aka nuts of the Marula tree. The Tsonga people of South Africa and Mozambique have used the oil as a moisturizing body lotion for women and also as a massage oil for babies. In the past, women used Marula oil rather than water to clean themselves.

Excerpt from African Botanics about the Oil

**Marula Oil is an all-natural, cold pressed, highly nutritious, light
textured oil. Hand harvested by women in village collectives from
the exotic fruit seed kernels of bio dynamic and drought resistant Marula
trees, indigenous to Southern Africa and Madagascar.
The geographic position on the west edge of Southern Africa gives rise to
certain climatic characteristics. The low rainfall and endless hours of
bright sunshine create the perfect environment - unlike any other in the
world - to produce exceptional growing conditions for the Marula trees to
bear their annual fruit. This delicious fruit contains 4 times as much
Vitamin C as an orange. Marula leaves and bark have wonderful properties
but the skin care properties of natural Marula Oil are perhaps the best of
all. This healing oil is widely used for its medicinal benefits by Southern
African women and men and has been part of numerous beauty rituals for
centuries to protect the skin and hair from the harsh and dry weather

Today’s modern scientific research reveals and confirms the secrets of
Marula Oil. This multipurpose oil contains powerful ANTIOXIDANTS, high
concentrations of nutrients, minerals and essential fatty acids that
protect against environmental aggressors, reverse photodamage, boost
cellular activity, hydrate at the deepest levels and repair the skin.
The anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties of Marula Oil reduce
the need for preservatives. Marula Oil has a clear, pale, golden-brown
color with a pleasant sweet aroma.**

If after reading that, you are not sold on trying this body wash, I think you should get a "Gibbs Slap"!! 

The liquid was a bit thicker than most but thats ok. It came out a bit slower too but thats ok as well! I only had to lather up the puff 1x and got the nicest, warmest smelling lather ever! It rinsed off great and left behind a soft "Vacation" type of scent. Not overpowering, but just enough to notice. My legs were super soft after 3 uses. And my legs get dry and itchy in the Maine, this year no words can describe, winter! 

So here is the fun part! 2 readers of this post will win a coupon to try this awesome body wash! Use the easy form below to enter, and good luck!
