Bible Study for Busy Mamas: Thirty Days in 1 Corinthians 13

Bible Study for Busy Mamas: Thirty Days in 1 Corinthians 13
by Pam Forster

The job of being Mommy is fulfilling yet filled with so much action and busyness that it is often difficult to find those deeply needed moments alone to refresh and refuel.  Finding time for God can be a big struggle for any person, let alone the woman with infants, toddlers and preschoolers filling life with activity and chaos.  Enter Pam Forster's Bible study series "Bible Study for Busy Mamas".  

I have been so blessed by having the opportunity to read this book.  In just small snippets each day, or whenever the time can be carved out, moms can study the entire chapter of 1 Corinthians 13 in depth and walk away feeling proud and with a much deeper understanding of Love as Christ would have us love, which all moms need.  

Each "Day", the reader is given a small task, starting with reading the entire chapter and proceeding into word studies and greater understanding a small bit at a time, with direct and easily understood guidance.  In as little as 5 minutes, these study sections can be completed.  For even greater benefit, this book has a section in each day with a way to involve the children!  I absolutely loved this - it acknowledges the entire reason moms need a study like this, the little ones.  There are simple things kids can do to learn the chapter along with mom, from hands on and physical to discussion, easy enough to involve even the toddlers in the house to some extent.

A fantastic book to be used in a group Bible study or small group, this study does not disappoint.  After having read this book, I am eager to dive into more of the studies by this author and grow in my relationship with my children and my God.  I very highly recommend this book to every mom!

Custom White Vinyl Stickers Review + Giveaway

These stickers are so cool!  
I opted to customize all of my stickers, and it was very easy to do. It is as simple as choosing the size, shape and quantity and then opting to customize or use already created templates.  I absolutely love the results, and they look just as they did on my computer screen, so no surprises once they arrived in the mail.

Easy to peel off, they do not rip or tear.  Easy to apply and re-apply if you don't get it right the first time. Claimed to have longevity and last long in the dishwasher, washer/dryer, and be weather resistant, there are so many ways to use them.  With kids, I have lots of things that need labels, so we tried ours out on snack cups and water bottles.  Each have gone through the dishwasher several times, been dropped in the dirt and used heavily by kids and still they stick and look great. 
I would definitely recommend these to parents especially, but anyone with a labeling need.  So many fun possibilities!

And I get to give a set away!  Comment below where or how you would use these labels if you win and you just might.  Winner to be selected July 28, 2014.

Australian Tea Tree Oil Review

Fairly new to the world of using essential oils, I jumped at the opportunity to review 100% Pure Australian Tea Tree Oil.  I am so in love with this stuff!

There are so many uses for Tea Tree Oil:

For health applications, it can be used to treat acne, act as an anti-fungal, an antiseptic, and and anti-viral.  It can treat head lice, sinus infections, dry skin, sunburns, bug bites and be used as aromatherapy.  It can also be used for cleaning!  It makes a great addition multi-purpose cleaner, helps control mold, and has a great smell for use with laundry as well.
I have been making a multipurpose cleaner for some time with vinegar and water.  The addition of the Tea Tree Oil has given it a much more pleasant smell as well as added the benefits of anti-viral, anti-fungal properties.  I have a renewed love for using this natural cleaner now.
My next step will be to put this wonderful product to use in making a skin remedy for my daughter's excema.
The Tea Tree Oil comes n a 4oz bottle, which is claimed to last for a year even with regular use, and a deal for $19.99 at Amazon.com
