Amy Grant Tennessee Christmas CD Review And Giveaway!








Amy Grant has always had some classic songs that are in my collection. This album makes a nice addition. Some of the songs I didn't love but the main ones I enjoyed are Melancholy Christmas, I've Got My Love To Keep Me Warm, and Baby, It's Cold Outside. There are so many new Christmas songs and music that come out every year I usually just stick to my old favorites. This is the first year where I actually have listened to some new music and artists. I still like the oldies and classic songs but it is nice to add some new in once in awhile. 

If you are looking for some good Christmas music this could be the album for you!

The Women of Easter Review




 25430745

About the Book

 
This Season of Grace,
Deepen Your Faith in God
Who So Loved the World
that He Gave Us His Son.


You re about to meet three women named Mary, each of whom has a life-changing encounter with Jesus. Mary of Bethany prepares the way for the Lord s burial when she anoints His feet and fills the air with her perfume. His mother, Mary of Nazareth, remains by His side from His first breath to His last, her loyalty unwavering. Mary Magdalene, delivered of seven demons, bravely supports her Teacher through His darkest hours, then proclaims the glorious news of His resurrection.
What a trio. What a Savior!

Your mind and emotions will be engaged and your faith strengthened as each scene unfolds, preparing your heart for a richer, deeper Easter experience. Liz Curtis Higgs, a seasoned Bible teacher and award-winning novelist, combines her storytelling skills with a thorough verse-by-verse study of Scripture as together you explore the remarkable lives of The Women of Easter.
Liz Curtis Higgs is one of the most amazing teachers of God s Word that I have ever experienced. Her in-depth knowledge of the Scriptures, gifting as a communicator, and personal relationship with the Lord make her unmatched in the ability to take biblical truth and make it applicable to anybody.

My Thoughts


Liz Curtis Higgs does it every time. I love her books! This book is fantastic. Verse by verse, Higgs breaks down the stories in the Bible starting with Mary of Bethany. My favorite part about how this book is set up is how detailed and thought provoking it is. I have read these passages in scripture numerous times. Then Liz starts breaking it down and talking about what life was really like and the culture and the dress etc. She doesn't add to the Bible and she doesn't take away. She simply states the verse and goes, okay now do you see what really just happened here? 
So good. Five stars.

VeggieTales The Best Christmas Gift Ever Kids Review


29434901

 About the Book

In this festive VeggieTales book, the Veggies are celebrating Christmas—decorating the tree, singing carols, and exchanging gifts. But in the middle of all the activity—though it’s so much fun to give and receive presents—the Veggies all know that the greatest gift of all was God’s gift of Jesus, his Son. Children will love the colorful art featuring their favorite Veggie friends. Parents can use this book to introduce little ones to Jesus’ birth as the reason we rejoice at Christmastime. (Goodreads)


My Thoughts

This is such a cute board book! I love VeggieTales and I know many little ones who think they are great fun. This book you could read as if in song, I can hear Junior in the background in my mind as I turn the page. While Christmas is a fun time of year it is difficult to get children to understand anything other than gifts and trees and candy. This book says those things are nice but really we are to celebrate the birth of Christ. 
This would make a wonderful addition to your Christmas kids library.

Five stars.

My Thoughts

I really wanted to see what all the fuss was about with these new Bibles. I have seen so many things posted about them and how so many people are using them to doodle and write notes. I have to say I LOVE how this Bible is set up. I love the room to write notes (which I do in mine anyway) and how organized it is. The only thing is this Bible is in very small print. I can read it fine but I prefer larger print Bibles, especially for memorization. Otherwise this Bible is beautiful and would make a great gift or if you are wanting more room to write notes or color. 
Five stars.
