Disclosure: I was sent a copy of When Jesus was a Green-eyed Brunette for review purposes. Pictures and opinions are my own. 

WHEN JESUS WAS A GREEN EYED BRUNETTE

by Max Davis

Loving People Like God Does

About When Jesus Was a Green-Eyed Brunette:

This story weaves heartwarming and miraculous stories of Jesus showing up in ordinary people, revealing that He knows us and is fully present in our everyday circumstances, especially in our difficulties.

Those hurting and weary from worn-out religion are longing for a fresh touch from the living Jesus. Best-selling author Max Davis challenges us to do more than simply receive God’s grace—we need to allow grace to soften, change, and shape us. As you read this book you will laugh, cry, and come face-to-face with the living Jesus, much like Davis did, when he found Him living in a green-eyed brunette.

As Davis puts it, “Jesus is very much alive today and still does incredible things—sometimes supernatural things—through us!”

My Opinion of When Jesus Was a Green-eyed Brunette:

This isn’t a story like you’d expect. It isn’t strictly about Jesus or his birth, but it is definitely a story that will reach in and touch your soul. I love how Davis showed us that Jesus is always there for us whether we see it or not.  I believe that he shows up just when you need him, some of us realize who he is and some of us do not. Those that do are overwhelmed with the feeling of peace, love and sorrow sometimes.

For me, I have met my own form of Jesus before, I was but a little girl testifying against my own mother. There I was in a courthouse, all eyes looking at me, knots in my stomach and the judge calling a recess in the hopes that I wouldn’t get sick all over the place. As I walked into the restroom with the guard outside the door, I met Jesus and he was in the form of a little old lady. That little old lady appeared just when I needed to hear all would be good and not only were my parents proud of me but so was God. She disappeared as quickly as she appeared, not even the guards had seen her go in. Trust me, I asked.

Lugz Tambora Winter Boots: Made for Snow

December 20, 2016 By · 159 Comments

Disclosure: The Life of a Home Mom was sent a pair of Lugz Tambora Winter Boots to review. The pictures and opinions are my own.

My First Pair of Lugz Tambora Winter Boots

Last year, I was lucky enough to try a pair of Lugz Tambora Winter boots in black.  Let me tell you it was a great choice of footwear.  I wore these boots everywhere, no matter the weather. I worried that it wouldn’t hold up in the rain but they were great.  While everyone else’s shoes soaked through mine did not. Tip: Don’t allow the fur to get soaked or they might. Lugz Tambora Boots

My Choice Of Lugz Tambora Boots This Year:

What type of boot/shoe would I get this year? This year I was more than happy to try a pair in coffee color.  Before you ask, I did still have a great pair of Tambora boots from last year.  My daughter now wanted them since they were black and well she’s 16.   I love that Lugz tambora winter boots are perfect for the snow, so I already knew I wanted something warm.  We were bracing for an even colder winter than last year according to all the news channels. These aren’t just snow boots though, they can be worn in all types of weather (minus summer of course) which means they last a long time. It would be money well spent.

The Lugz Tambora boots in your choice of Coffee/ Antique Brass/ Black currently  available $74.99. Get 30% Off with code 30HOLIDAY. Spend $60 for free US Ground shipping.

Thanksgiving is in a few short weeks which means Christmas is just around the corner. Have you done your holiday shopping yet? Do you have all those Christmas wish lists or your Thanksgiving Turkey in your freezer? This could definitely help out.

enter-to-win

My son recently went off to boot camp, which means this year our family is celebrating Thanksgiving Day with an actual TURKEY. We haven’t had turkey in about 10 years due to the fact he’s allergic to the bird. Yes, I said that. He’s allergic to turkey. So since he will be busy doing push-ups and sit-ups we will be chowing down on something we haven’t had in a VERY long time. Which means

I need some cash for turkey and all the fixings. hehe. This would be the perfect giveaway for me to enter, but sadly since I wanted to be so nice and offer it up to one person I will not be joining. I’ve teamed up with everyone on the rafflecopter for one lucky winner. So make sure to follow EVERYONE. You never know which will lead to the winner.

Oh for those of you wondering….Christmas is just 44 more days! So get ready for the big man to come. As for me, I’m counting down because that’s when I get to see my son.

One Wish List Item from each of my kids:


BalletGirl 16, is all about make up, boys and work these days so it wasn’t a surprise to see she wanted brushes. Not just brushes but NICE brushes. NAKED is a collection that I love so I can totally understand this. BabyGirl 13yr is more of my Goth girl. She loves all things Nightmare Before Christmas and Hot Topics. She already found a jacket she swears up and down she will wear every single day of winter if she got it. haha.

Little A (9yr) has finally started reading books and while they are related to video games nothing makes me happier than seeing him want to read something. Woo hoo!  Nicoli (3yr) has been all about Peppa Pig and PJ Masks so when he saw the plush version of one of his favorite shows he started asking.


SoccerBoy: Harry Potter Chess Set.
