10 Ultimate Truths Girls Should Know Review and Giveaway

We used to be jr high youth ministers for our old church. I wish I had of had this book at that time. This really is a great book filled with quite a bit of wisdom for the teenage girl. Our older teen girls are wise beyond their years. I am saving this for our 10 year old daughter though. 10 Ultimate Truths Girls Should Know will be great for her. Might just save her a couple heartaches. So many teen girls have questions that they don't feel they can take to their parents. It's a heartbreaking ordeal but it happens. Kari Kampakis tries to help girls know what to expect. It's almost like a What to Expect When You are Expecting book.

These ten simple truths can build one big change in your daughter’s life.

When Kari Kampakis wrote a blog post in July 2013 titled “10 Truths Young Girls Should Know,” the post went viral and was shared more than 65,000 times on Facebook. Obviously her message strikes a chord with moms and dads across the country. This nonfiction book for teen girls expands on these ten truths and can reach the hearts of both moms and daughters.

Teen girls go through so many things during their teen lives. Most girls go through being bullied, starting their periods, nervous if they don't get their periods at same age as their peers, wearing bras and hormones. Some experience pregnancy, loss, rape and more. If we can help protect these girls, at least a little, wouldn't you try?

If there is a girl in your life about ready to face these hard years, why not purchase this book for her and save her some unneeded heartache.

Tipper Tells a Lie and Diggit Saves the Day Board Books Review

My 2 year old daughter LOVES these 2 books! She will come down from nap time or wander through the living room and grab the books saying "boo, boo". She loves her brother trucks and trains so these are her favorite books.

Tipper Tells a Lie

This book tells about how Tipper lies to his friends. Dozer, Diggit, Stretch and Tipper are a team and on their way to a construction site. Tipper, all throughout the book, tries to hide his lie. In the end he gets found out, but the best part.....is how his friends are so forgiving and help him out! Shows your child, not only how lying is bad but about forgiveness..

The pictures are bright and the trucks are drawn with such great animation. Would be great buy for little boys age 2-7

You can purchase this book through Tommy Nelson website for $9.99



You can purchase this through Amazon.com for $9.18


There are few faith-based books aimed at boys. This new inspirational brand for little boys resonates with the hot construction trend such as Where Do Diggers Sleep At Night? and Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site. Construction and trucks remain an evergreen interest with boys, making these books strong standalone titles.

Diggit Saves the Day

While on the construction site, Dozer, Diggit, Tipper and Stretch find a little something they weren't expecting. A little squirrel named Earl. Poor Earl was lost. At first Tipper didn't want to help, they had a big job to do and a list to follow. They other construction trucks reminded Tipper about God's word. God tells us to be kind and help others. Earl was very thankful for all their help.

Diggit Saves the Day shows our children how to be kind and helpful.

You can purchase this great book for $9.99 from Tommy Nelson



You can also purchase this book from Amazon for $8.92


Both great books and gets you wondering:

-How do you make your kids feel like they're an important part of God's kingdom?

-What one characteristic do you feel like you need the most to help with when it comes to instilling in your kids?

I received both of these books to read and post my honest review. Thank you for reading and I hope you liked the review.

Nuby Clik-it™ Soft Spout Insulated Cup Review and Giveaway

This has been our favorite Nuby cup yet. With it's soft spout it is so good on our little girls swollen gums.

This specific Nuby cup has the clik it lid. Just twist it on and wait for the click to know that it is locked tight. Some other sippy cups out there leak. I hate that. I love the clik it lids so that my daughters clothes don't get soaked.

Such cute designs also. We chose the owl to test. But, the other designs to choose from are: a knight, spaceship, a whale, flowers and jungle animals. Colors and designs for both boys and girls.

This cup is a little heavier than most cups due to it is insulated. It will keep your drink cooler longer. My daughter didn't seem to notice it being heavier.

This specific Clik it cup holds 9oz of whatever liquid you would like to fill it with. I do not recommend pops though as the fizz doesn't pop up out of the lid. Most sippy cups are that way.

You can purchase this cup from diapers.com for about $7.99

Devotions For Beginning Readers Book Review

Super cute book! I have a little one who desperately struggles with reading. This is the perfect Devotion for him. He doesn't have to struggle with words that he doesn't understand. I love that there is a word segment that is like having a spelling word that is repeated throughout. Repeating words over and over again is great way to help your child learn that specific word.

This book is written by bestselling author Crystal Bowman and award-winning producer Christy Lee Taylor. This book is 240 pages. It is a nice hard back book with beautiful, vibrant illustrations. My 2 year old loves just looking at the bright pictures, while everyone else reads.

This would make a great Christmas gift to a child aged 5-8. I would say, that both boys and girls would love this book equally.

Devotions for Beginning Readers doesn't just help your child read, it helps them learn to pray. Each devotions ends in a simple prayer for your child to pray.

I was sent this book for my children to test and post my honest review. Thank you for reading!

You can purchase this book for $14.99 from

Forever Mom Book Review

I thought that this book was very insightful! We are in the process of adopting our youngest child. We have had her since she was 3 weeks old and she is now a little over 2.

Mary Ostyn gave tips and pointers on things to do. She gave ideas to fund raising, which we have done a lot of. Private Adoption and Overseas adoption is not cheap. Now, if you adopt from foster care it can be relatively cheap to free.

Mary posted her heart on these pages. She wanted to adopt and the journey through it. Sometimes the choice is not the one you want. There are so many children out there right now that need a forever family. I have a friend who is over her limit for taking in foster children. They have so many that need homes that they are overfilling homes. Most people want babies because they feel an older child will cause problems. Do not always pay attention to movies. My friend has 5 teens in her home right now. Only 1 has been an issue. But, after being in her home for over a year now, she is doing much better. These kids need loving families.

If you are looking to adopt please contact me and I will try to point you in the right direction.

I was sent this book to read and post my honest review. Thank you for reading.
