International Delight Creamer *GIVEAWAY*

TIME'S UP!  RONNI is the winner.  She has been contacted.  Thanks for participating!!

I am so excited to talk about one of my favorite things....coffee creamer!  I love this time of year when all the delicious holiday flavors are out.  My favorite so far is the Pumpkin Pie Spice, and I am so excited it is available Sugar Free.  (You can still get it regular also!)  There is nothing better than the smell of cinnamon, pumpkin, and nutmeg in my hot mug of coffee on a cold fall day.
This year you can also find Peppermint Mocha, Salted Caramel Mocha, and White Chocolate Raspberry.  Just remember these are only available for a limited time...so be sure to stock up!  You can find all the available flavors on the International Delight Flavors page.  As a BzzAgent, I am able to give away one coupon for a free bottle (pint or quart) of International Delight Creamer. (maximum value $3.99).  To enter, just leave a comment with the flavor of International Delight creamer you would like to try.  This contest will close November 26, 2013 at midnight.  I will e-mail the winner, so make sure I have a way to contact you.  Good Luck!

I have gone to church pretty much all my life {except for a couple of years in college...that's a whole other blog post!}.  I grew up with the King James Version, then used the New King James Version as an adult.  Then we moved and changed to the NIV {that is what the church we attended was using}.  And currently our church uses a very broad mix of Bible translations.  On any given Sunday, they can flash the KJV, NIV, NLT, the Message, or the ABC {I made that one up!} on the big screen Bible.

I got a message from Tyndale a month or so ago about reviewing this new NLT The Wayfinding Bible, and boy was I excited!  I am not a Bible expert by any means, but I am all about finding new and different ways to go about reading the Bible.  So without further ado, here it is!!!

What is different about this Bible, is you can choose one of three paths to guide you through reading the Bible.  

There is the FLYOVER route {about 50 readings that cover the most important events in the Bible}

Second is the DIRECT route {about 200 readings to better understand the God's story throughout history}

And last is the SCENIC route {about 400 readings that take you deeper into understanding God's word like never before}

Anybody remember the Choose Your Own Adventure books from the 1980s?  This is like a choose your own Bible adventure for grown ups!

When you decide on you route it takes you to the page and gives the exact scripture references you are to read.  Then you follow the arrow at the top of the page  (it tells you what page to turn to).  I have found it very easy to navigate through.

One feature I really appreciate is that each book has a brief overview, then it tells you haw many stops (readings) you will make in that book (on some of the routes, you might skip an entire book), and it also gives a timeline of important events that were happening when this book was written.  This last feature is great for history buffs!

I think this would be a great first or tenth Bible for anyone who wants to learn more about God and His story and His Kingdom.  This would also be great for families to share.  I know my 12 year old son would pick the FLYOVER route, my husband would pick the SCENIC route, and I would pick the DIRECT route.  So if you are looking for a great family Christmas gift, be sure to keep The Wayfinding Bible in mind!

*I received a copy of this Bible from The Tyndale House Publishers in exchange for my review.  All opinions are mine.*
