One of my favorite things Amie says in her book is, "There are 3 things you can do in life that will invite trouble every time: flirting when married; developing an affinity for any food that is fried, cheesy, or creamy; and spending money you don't have". She give several real life examples of people she has met in her ministry and ways she helped their financial troubles. This is an easy read for anyone who needs help with their money. We are blessed to be debt-free except for our mortgage which is a huge blessing to us right now. Now we just need to be more intentional about saving and putting extra money into paying off our mortgage. One day at a time.....

I've waited for a book like this to come on the market for a long time. As a mom to three boys, I am constantly looking for gender specific books for my sons. This book will be great for my nine year old. I cannot wait to read these at night and then talk about the issues with him. The stories are only about two pages long (perfect for my son's attention span) and are followed by a game or activity. It also gives life application principles to put into practice. This is a great addition to our kid's library!

I had the honor of hearing Donald Miller speak (the first time for me) at MOPS convention at the beginning of the month. I have tried to read his book Blue Like Jazz in the past, but was not able to "get into" it. After hearing him speak (which was amazing, by the way), I was excited to dive into Searching for God Knows What. I believe this is a great book which answers questions many people have about Christianity. Donald Miller is a funny guy and this book highlights his personality very well. I could spend hours listening to him talk and reading this book makes you feel like he's talking to you!

Beth Malarkey (Alex’s mom) said this powerful message, “If you ever doubt God is there remember this: He knew the pain we’d be assaulted with. He supplied His hands, His body, His love, and His compassion in the way He knew He could minister to us and sustain us.” She later said “I wish I could take credit for some of this, but I can’t. I can only explain it as Him. I recognize His supernatural strength, wisdom, knowledge, and understanding all the time. I have learned to cling to the Savior.” I have learned much from Alex and his parents. They are an inspiration to many.
If you ever start feeling sorry for yourself, read this book.
If your perfectly healthy kids are driving you crazy, read this book.
If you think your life is hard, read this book.
If you think you can’t handle one more thing, read this book.
If you think God is punishing you, read this book.
If you need to be encouraged, read this book.
In other words…..read this book!

I am so excited to be sharing this book with someone. This is a great fun book for kids of all ages. (It is recommended for kids 8 and older) This is a great way to learn Bible stories, and each puzzle has a scripture passage to go along with it. I think this would be a great resource for Sunday School teachers, homeschoolers, or anyone who enjoys learning more about the Bible.
There are 200 puzzles in the book, and there is an answer key in the back. So no puzzle will go unsolved! One lucky commenter will win a copy of this book. I can only ship to the US (sorry, I'm cheap!). So leave any comment before midnight June 14th and stay tuned for the winner.
*I was provided a free copy of this book to review by Tyndale House Publishers* I am choosing to pass it on...

Welcome to my very first giveaway! I am so excited to be doing this. In case you don't know, I am a bzzz agent. This means from time to time I can sign up to sample a product and then spread the word about the particular product. I often get free product, coupons, and cool stuff to share with friends.
In this giveaway I am sharing a covergirl smoky shadow blast in citrus flair color and a $2.00 off any covergirl product coupon. I have hazel eyes, so I love this color, but I think it would work for any eye color. You can check out the full line of smoky blast shadows here.
To enter this giveaway, just leave a comment with your eye color. Open to US residents only (because I'm cheap & I pay the shipping) I will randomly pick a winner and notify you. If you don't have a blogger profile, make sure to leave a way to email you.
Contest ends at midnight Monday June 7th.
