Liked by Kari Kampakis




Every girl or boy, growing up, wants to be liked. Am I right? With every changing year, it gets harder.

Back when I was younger, we had slam books and such like that. We didn't have social media. Even now, as an adult, I watch for the people to like on my posts. As a blogger, I want people to follow my page. When my numbers fall, I take it personally. What did I do wrong? Did I not have enough giveaways? Did they not like my opinion?

I try so hard to give my kids the positive attention that they need. I try to remind them every day how much I love them and am proud of them. But, as most parents know, children don't always hear what parent say. But they hear their friends. " hey, are you really going to eat all that"? Makes a girl wonder if she is getting fat. It's that sort of input that makes our kids question themselves.

"For anyone tire of the quest to impress and ready to rest in God's unconditional love...Liked is the answer".



Liked reads like a devotional. Even as an adult this is a good read. But I recommend this book for any teen girl who is struggling. Kari does a great job is helping with the positive.

You can find this book at Amazon for $8.31

How to Manage Your Home Without Losing Your Mind by Dana K. White





As a full time mom with a household of 12, my stress level and feeling of losing my mind, is a daily occurrence. I am also an introvert which doesn't help. I avoid Parent Teacher conferences for the older kids. (I have really good kids so this isn't a big thing)

My kids all have chores and yet I find myself, daily, wondering where in the heck this mess came from. I have friends, who also have kids, that I wonder if their kids move. Their houses are immaculate and yet apologize for the mess. I usually chuckle and say "what mess". But then I feel like my house looks like the local dump! I trip out whenever someone shows up unannounced. No one shows up, when the house is clean....

With all this said, YOU ARE NOT ALONE!

In 2009, after years of feeling like a failure because traditional organizing advice didn't work for her, Dana started on what she now calls her deslobification journey. She chronicled her struggles, successes and failures on her wildly popular blob. A Slob Comes Clean, as she learned what it takes to bring a home out of disaster status.


She helps to

1. find exactly where to start to get your mess tamed

2. How to obtain your quest for a manageable home

3. practical types that normal people can follow

4. What habits to keep and which ones to pitch

Why not start your self loving and your quest for a manageable house? I may take time but it can be obtained. Why not start your journey with me?

You can purchase this book for $9.27

Airship Genesis Kids Study Bible




As parents, it is our job to make sure that our children learn about Christ. Giving them the right tools is one of the right steps. A Bible is like a well fitting shoe. If you don't have the Bible, right for you, it could really impede your studies. I love the Amplified Bible. It explains everything in lots of details. My husband, however, loves the King James. You may go through a couple Bibles to find the right fit.

I think for a Kids Study Bible this might be the Bible to get first. This Bible is sturdy and the honeycomb design has raised patterns. I LOVE how this Bible is made. The Bible is made with missions. 66 which explore the main themes and purposes of each book in the Bible. Most kids love missions and searching for things. I believe your child might love to go through this Bible and see what they can find.

Would be great for ages 7-11

You can purchase this Bible for $20.99

Nuby Comfort 2pk of Binkies with Holder

If you are a binkie mom, you know the importance of having lots on hand. I swear, they are like socks, they disappear so quickly. She loves her Soothes and her Nuby binkies.

Nuby binkies are so easy to keep clean. I love that even just a quick soak in hot water and soap cleans them up good.

All Nuby products are BPA free.

I was in my Walmart, the other day, they had a pretty good sized display of Nuby products. I know that Kmart also carries them. Nuby is a very economical brand.

Looking for a good shower gift? I think these might be perfect.


Nuby Monster Snack Keeper

I get so frustrated when I hand the kids a baggie of cereal or goldfish. Inevitably it gets spilled all over the floor. ACK!


With this super cute snack keeper, your child can put their tiny fingers through the plastic "teeth", pull out their treat and save you the mess. 

As always, Nuby is BPA free for your child's safety. 


Nuby products are so easy to find. Between Amazon, Walmart, Kmart and Babies R Us, ypu can find your need quickly. 


$3.60 at Amazon!

One Small Donkey Board Book

What is your favorite holiday? There are so many to choose from. However, mine is Christmas. Because of Christ sending us His son, we have a reason for living. We have a reason to celebrate! Every year, before we open gifts, we read the story of Jesus birth. Such an amazing story.

When you open this cute little book, you get to follow this One Small Donkey on his special mission on the eve of Jesus birth. 


I love the moral if this story. "even the littlest ones can do big things for God". 


This will be a great story to read with your children.

Pine Bros Cough Drops

These are amazing cough drops. You get the same cough surpressing action without the medicine taste. Most cough drops have a bite, Pine Bros does not. The other thing I love about Pine Bros is that their cough drops aren't hard. They have an almost gummy texture to them. Have you ever been sucking on a cough drop and move it just right, it cuts your tongue! No worries with these. Plus, these are safe to give your kids. I would say no one under 4 years, though. 

The texture comes from being made with plant glycerin and gum acacia. 


You will not be disappointed. you can find at almost any drug store and Walmart. The prices is also very affordable!
