Indescribable: 100 Devotions for Kids About God and Science Review and Giveaway


I received this book free to facilitate this review. Affiliate links may be in this posting. Thanks for supporting my blog.

Indescribable: 100 Devotions for Kids About God and Science is Pastor of Passion City Church and bestselling author, Louie Giglio's, first-ever children's book. It comes as hardcover devotional book and is illustrated by Nicola Anderson with fun four-color illustrations. Based on Louie Giglio's series for adults called Indescribable and  this book brings the amazing message of God's incredible creation to kids through scientific fact. It lays out the impressiveness of creation with scientific findings, photography, and delightful illustrations. Each devotion includes Scripture, a relevant illustration, a story, a life application, a prayer, and a fascinating science section called "Be Amazed". The "Be Amazed" section includes fun facts to read and science experiments kids can try. Great for ages 6-10.

These 100 devotions encourage wonder at God’s creativity with an in-depth look at...

• Space: Galaxies, Planets, and Stars
• Earth: Geology, Oceans, and Weather
• Animals: from Hummingbirds to Dinosaurs
• People: Our Minds, Bodies, and Imaginations


Inside Indescribable Sneak Peek.

What I Thought:
This devotional is unique and definitely gets you thinking. The science is enjoyable to read about and the topics engaging. I even learned stuff while reading the devotions to my kids! The author does, however, take a very literal view of the Bible which at times can take interesting twists and turns with the "facts". For example the 3rd devotion talks about how dragons were real and mentioned in the bible because of a scripture in Job. This might be stretching it a bit, but the scriptures do make you wonder what they could have been talking about.

The book is very nicely printed. The text is a bit small for my youngest, but still readable. The illustrations are adorable. The full color photos add depth to the awesome facts about science as well.

My kids and I loved reading these devotions and learning about both science and faith. I agree with the author that God is an unparalleled creator with an exhaustive imagination. Indescribable: 100 Devotions for Kids About God and Science  This would be a fabulous resource for homeschool, Sunday School, and other Christian Schools/Programs.

Homesteader's Guide to Keeping Geese Giveaway Package ~ $200 Value!


This is a sponsored post. Thanks to Homestead Bloggers Network for providing me this promotion and giveaway information to share with my readers.

I've always thought that having geese on my farm would be a great experience and that they would be a great addition to chickens. I might someday own geese on my farm. I do like the idea that they have larger eggs and that we could have another source of eggs on the farm than just our chickens. I am excited to have been given a copy of The Modern Homesteader's Guide to Keeping Geese to read myself. Also I am thrilled to share this giveaway with you!! This would be a wonderful opportunity to be able to have a great resource right at your fingertips, start your own family of geese, and help them cozy and fed during the winter.

About The Modern Homesteader's Guide to Keeping Geese:
While chickens preen in the spotlight, geese are the historic unsung heroes of small farms and homesteads. Providing weed control, large eggs, and entertainment, and acting as "security" over other animals, geese are the ultimate modern homesteading companion.

The Modern Homesteader's Guide to Keeping Geese covers everything you need to know to raise geese, including:
  • Profiles of breeds and how to select the best one for your needs 
  • How to "imprint" goslings on a person Feeding, housing, animal health, and cold weather care
  • Using geese for weed control, soil improvement, and as "watch-geese" 
  • Cooking with goose eggs and meat 
Additional coverage includes a look at the rich history of geese on farms in North America and Europe that will enhance any goose keeper's enjoyment of these intelligent and unique birds.
This practical guide is a must-have essential for the kitchen table of homesteaders, small farmers, permaculturists, agriculturalists, and professional farmers looking to add the power of geese to their land.

Julie Elias A Girl Like Me Album Review and Giveaway


I received this CD free to facilitate this review. Affiliate links may be in this posting. Thanks for supporting my blog.

Julie Elias is a Christian singer and songwriter who discovered happiness in Christ when being an actress in Hollywood was not making her content. She had fame and appeared in shows like “Grey’s Anatomy” and “CSI:NY”, but she was not fulfilled and felt like something was missing. She turned to God to guide her and Christian music became her voice to encourage others with her stories in song. In 2014, she founded Aurora Ministries, a 501c3 non-profit that creates Christian material and events specifically for teen and tween girls. Through music, booklets, blogging, conferences and girls’ events, Julie has been able to share God’s role in her life - even when she didn’t think He was there - and find common ground to inspire young women all over the world.

A Girl Like Me is her fifth studio album. It will be available on all digital music outlets, including iTunes, on October 27, 2017. This album is a companion to her girls' events and all the original songs on the album have purpose and stories behind them. This album is for women everywhere, regardless of what stage of life. It reminds us all that despite our failures and stubbornness, we need to “still believe a girl like me could be worthy of a King."

CD Track Listing:
  1. Unchained
  2. Only For Awhile
  3. Awaken
  4. A Girl Like Me
  5. Alive
  6. Forgive Me
  7. Lost
  8. Run Away
  9. Here With Us
  10. Wherever You Roam
  11. A Wild Rose (2017 Version) *Bonus track
  12. In the Light *Bonus track

CD, Jacket, & Inserts.

What I Thought:
This CD is so open and candid. Julie speaks from experience with her heart. I love the song Unchained because it shows her giving herself to God and letting Him take her burdens away. She spells out her vulnerabilities and lets Him help her through them because she knows He loves her for just the way she is.

We are all flawed, but God loves us anyway. This CD helps us remember that God is with us and will help us through troubled times. He knows us better than I think we know ourselves and He will forgive us of our failings if we let Him.

I recommend this album. It is so inspiring and wonderful. Julie has a beautiful voice and I hope she makes many more albums to share her feelings and faith with.

Coobie Seamless Bra Review and Coobie Bra Giveaway


US Family Guide provided me with this opportunity and I received this product free from The Coobie Store to facilitate this review.

Coobie Seamless Bras are really the most comfortable and supportive bras I have ever tried. I received a Coobie V-neck Lace Trim Bra in Red Velvet. I am so glad I got to try these bras because I absolutely love them! I am definitely going to buy more. They have sold me on their products. I was skeptical at first about how a one size that comfortably fits sizes 32A to 36D would actually fit me. I am very petite. These bras fit me really well with no sagging or bunching in weird places. I have tried both scoopneck and v-neck with lace trim styles, but my favorite is the lacy one because I love the lovely feminine touch.

These are also very flattering, form fitting, and affordable. Great for maternity, nursing and beyond as the soft, high quality nylon/spandex outer fabric gently stretches, breathes well and isn't at all see through. You can easily breastfeed in these because you can unhook the strap and pull the bra down. Also great for everyday wear, sleep wear, workout wear, yoga, and Pilates. Available in both neutrals, fun colors, and patterns (7+ styles and 50+ fashion colors and patterns)! The back is smooth and seamless with no hooks or clasps. Each bra has removable pads and the straps are adjustable. You can even call them for extra pads or straps. These bras are also available in a full size version fitting up to a size 42D.
