This is by far the cutest Bible Storybook I have seen! This is going to be added to every baby shower gift I give in the future. There are 20 Bible stories in this book along with a promise from God with each one. I love the simple words that a child can understand along with promises that I need to hear as an adult. I look forward to reading this to my grandkids when they come visit me!! I love to read about Jesus Calling to me!

My oldest son grew up watching VeggieTales.  He quickly became obsessed with Bob the Tomato, Larry the Cucumber, and LarryBoy ("I am that hero!!").  We watched hours and hours and hours of Silly Songs with Larry and every VeggieTales episode ever created.  So when we got a chance to check out the VeggieTales League of Incredible DVD we were both pretty excited!  

This VeggieTale story is about handling things you are afraid of.  There are several Super Heroes that make an appearance in this show when LarryBoy gets some help from his friends.  You can find this League of Incredible Vegetables DVD on sale right now.  You can also get a $5.00 coupon if you join the Fishflix email list, or by texting 5-GIFT to 44222.  This would make for some great deals for family friendly videos.  Fishflix is a great source for the best and newest Christian movies and entertainment for the whole family.  You don't have to worry about the content in the movies on their website which is a big sigh of relief for this mom!

If you are looking for a great Father's Day book for your sports loving dad, this is the book to get him.  Since it is the peak of the NBA Finals also, this is a great time to read this book.  This not also includes lots of basketball history for the history buffs, it also tackles present day sporting issues with the game of basketball.  Overall a great read for anyone interested in learning more about basketball and the players of the game, both past and present!!

Visit Boys Among Men to learn more about the book and author, Jonathan Abrams.

HOPE HEALS *review*

On any given day I can start to feel sorry for myself.  My life, family, job, circumstances, the internet, basically just life in general can spin me into a tizzy very quickly.  It can be something minor, or something big....and I can let it ruin my day very quickly.  Then I drag others around me (most likely my boys or husband) down into the tizzy-ness that I'm in.

So after reading this book, I really have nothing (NOTHING) to complain about.  Katherine Wolf suffered a brain stem stroke (she should not be alive right now) in her early 20s shortly after giving birth to her first son.  This book starts at the beginning of how she met her husband and goes to the present.  It has a happy ending because they give all the glory to God.  She is alive for a purpose.  His purpose.  They have been able to speak hope into the lives of those that are feeling hopeless.  What a journey they have been on.  What a story they have to tell.  I love that there is hope to cling to and that their hope is everlasting!

"We know all too well that no single one of us knows what tomorrow holds or even what the night holds, for that matter.  It is unnatural, against every animal instinct in us, to release ourselves into that reality; but God calls us there - to that place of surrender where He invites us to rest, secure in arms more capable and more loving than our own." ~Hope Heals pg. 231
