Garden Lites Muffins: Delicious Muffins without Mom Guilt

February 10, 2017 By · No Comments

Garden Lites Muffins Freezer

I’ve been leaning towards eating healthier for a while now, not everyone is completely on board and when that happens you know how hard that can be. It doesn’t matter if it is spouse, friends/co-workers or your kids. When there is resistance it is hard to fight and stay on track. My goal right now is to start with the young ones. Why? My girls already love to eat healthy, they just tend to eat sweets when allowed. I found a new snack idea that the kids love and I feel great about. Rich in veggies too……They are….. Garden Lites Muffins!

Garden Lites Packaging

I end up snacking during the day and so does Nicoli.  Instead of giving him some junk I can now give him a chocolate muffin without guilt. Why? Simply because Garden Lites have mixed up veggies into their muffins. We got two different ones to try out: Chocolate Muffins (made with fresh zucchimi & carrots) and Banana Chocolate Chip muffins (made with fresh zucchini and bananas). Nicoli will never know the difference. Truth is as long as I start him early he will always love zucchini muffins/cupcakes. Isabella once tried them at a Farmer’s Market and has loved them since.

Kari Jobe’s Newest CD “The Garden” Will Speak To You

February 8, 2017 By · 12 Comments

Disclosure: I was sent this wonderful CD for review purposes and one is being provided for one lucky reader. 

“The Garden” CD

I couldn’t wait to hear Kari Jobe’s Newest CD “The Garden” I had previously heard some of her songs (I am Not Alone) and loved them so I knew this wouldn’t be any different. Her voice is soft but it reaches into your soul and speaks to you on so many different levels. I’ve been a bit lost lately so having this on while reading the bible has really seemed to put my spirit at ease. Don’t ask me what it is but it just helps me clear my mind.

About Kari Jobe:

“Grammy nominated Kari Jobe is the premiere female worship leader in Christian music. Coming off her last live album, Majestic, which featured the worship anthem “Forever” and radio hit “I Am Not Alone,” Kari Jobe has returned to the studio to record her new album, The Garden, full of brand new worship anthems for the church and for personal reflection. Finding inspiration from life’s joys and hardships, Kari leans into the firm foundation of Christ through it all.”

January’s Ipsy Bag Reveal!

January 16, 2017 By · No Comments

ipsy bag

BalletGirl (age 16) has decided she wants to start ordering Subscription boxes with her paycheck. I mean what girl doesn’t like makeup and free samples right? But better, who here hates to purchase something they end up hating?  She decided her first purchase would be the January Ipsy bag because it was only $10 and came with quite a bit of stuff.

I loved that she told me if she liked the stuff she’d know to purchase more of it later and if not at least she wouldn’t waste her money on it. Plus, it was make up at her door monthly that she didn’t have to go search for.

The process is pretty simple you head over to IPSY (her link here) and sign up. If you sign up through someone’s link they do get so much off their next bag. It’s a win-win! Feel free to sign up for the January Ipsy Bag through her link. The service is $10 a month for 5 products and a bag.

January Ipsy Bag Reveal!

She waited for two whole weeks for this to come. Every day she’d check the mail once it said it had been shipped. haha. I must admit I loved it because of the pretty pink bubble wrap envelope they shipped it in. (sorry didn’t get pictures of that) Every month that she receives one we will post about it here on the blog. Hope ya’ll enjoy the reveals!

The January Glam Bag

January Ipsy Bag

First when you open the pretty envelope you’ll immediately see a card (explaining what the theme is for the month) and an Ipsy Bag. This month we got a blue/gray some call it a silver bag with holes. This month’s theme from Ipsy Glam Bag is Metropolis! Fun in the city!

My Kids & The Beginner’s Bible:

The Beginner's Bible Noah's Ark

When we got the Bible in the mail the kids were excited to flip through it. Before moving back out to Indiana I was a Sunday School teacher and taught a class from age 4-15. My kids enjoyed re-living the stories I had once shared with them in my own class and now were reading about in their book. I loved it because now Nicoli, who was too young at the time will have stories to go through with his siblings even when I’m not at home. Since they already know them they will enjoy sharing their thoughts and memories of what I taught with him.

When Jesus was a Green-Eyed Brunette

December 21, 2016 By · 17 Comments

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.
