Holy Bible Jesus Calling


This is such a cute little Bible.

This Bible has a hard cover and regular book pages. This Bible would be great for 2-4th graders. My son, who is in 3rd grade, understood the way the stories were told. He does have severe dyslexia but still followed as we read to him.

The pictures were bright and perfect for each example.

I would totally recommend this book as a gift. Great to help your child learn, early, the things that God has in store for us. How much He loves all His children.

You can purchase from the Thomas Nelson website for $29.99

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

http://store.faithgateway.com/airship-genesis-kids-study-bible

Dr. David Jeremiah's first Bible for children ages 7 to 11, The Airship Genesis NKJV Study Bible includes hundreds of engaging study features in a cool futuristic design.

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.

The Moodsters Feeling Notebook and Feelings Crayons





I have a little girl with Sensory Integration (processing) Disorder. (SPD) She is in Occupational Therapy and a couple other therapies. One of them is talking about her feelings. She asks me, everyday, after school if I am happy. Then we go through the conversation about happy and sad. What makes us happy and what makes us sad or angry. I love this little booklet and crayons. At 3, feelings are so hard to express. With this Moodster book, she can point to the colors. (which she only knows purple so this also helps with colors) She can pick the one that fits her mood and we can talk about it. I believe this would be great for children with Autism! I think that this book will help your child or the child you know, express themselves.

There are 5 Moodsters. Quigly is afraid. Lolly is loving. Coz is happy. Snorf is sad. Razzy is angry.

Some little games you can play with your kids and watch how they react are:

During a playdate, have the kids draw pictures of how they are feeling, then talk about their drawings.

When your child seems angry or frustrated, suggest they use the Moodsters Feelings Notebook and Feelings Crayons to draw a picture to show why he or she is upset. Talk about how keeping upset feelings inside can cause all kinds of aches and pains!

There are 2 other Moodsters books for you to check out.

Meet the Moodsters. This book looks like it comes with a flashlight.

The Scary Sleepover. Looks like it comes with a mood thermometer.

You should really check them out at www.themoodsters.com

I fully put my Heaven Sent Six stamp of approval on this set! I was sent this sent in exchange for my honest review. All views and comments are my own.

Night Night Farm Board Book




I sort of like night time books. Not that most books aren't night time books, but....

My favorite time of the day is snuggle time with my youngest. She asks me questions and snuggles and we almost always read a book. I try to keep her bringing the Tommy Nelson books. Not only are they smaller, but they are on her level. Plus they get her in the "mood" to say her prayers and relax.

The Night Night Farm Board Book is cardboard and sturdy for those little hands to hold. Each page has cute little farm animals that tell the rhyming story. When I read to her, my voice always goes to the sing song sound of the rhyming books.
I think our favorites were the bath time pigs! This book also helps your child learn the sounds that the farm animals make.

You can purchase this cute board book from the gateway for $7.19

The Ultimate Book of Dad Jokes



In my house, I am the one without a sense of humor. When I make a joke, I am the only one who laughs. I have totally resigned myself to that. If my family laughs at the same time that I do, it's because I laughed.

This book was full of super funny jokes.

I have a bread allergy. One of the funny jokes to me was:

"Anyone with a wheat allergy who routinely eats pasta is just a gluten for punishment". I laughed pretty hardy at this joke!

This book has over 1,001 Punny jokes.

I think that your Dad would love this book. I know my husband did.

Just a little story....

The day that my husband and I met. I was working at Perkins and was really busy. Well, in walks this man. He follows me around the kitchen and back area. I'm thinking ok this guy is weird. He is telling everyone that he was in the military and just got back. I guess he came in to find out his schedule now that he was back. Anyway, one of the first things he said to me was a joke. He says " do you want to hear a joke"? I said "yes" and he says " A horse walked into a bar and the bartender says why such the long face"....I laughed and guess what? We are one 22 years of marriage. I guess that jokes really are something that attracts people.

Does your dad love jokes? I totally recommend this joke book for him!

You can find this book to purchase from Amazon for $9.69

The Identity of Angiarts- Book






This book was definitely different than most books that I have read or reviewed. I love Sci-fi and books of that nature.

This book included, genies, sorcerers, leprechauns and more. It was definitely a book with action in it. You follow princess Angilika. This is her journey is finding her true being. It was a story of mystical proportions.

INTRODUCING !! A perpetually adventurous muse on a mission to inspire the cultural history of the City Beautiful! The Identity of "AngiArts" is a modern-day legend that stages the fictitious life and identity transformation of a 21st century comic-book-style cartoon character for the Arts. I created this identity with the sole intention to rally and promote the arts and culture movement in downtown Orlando. The story narrates her fairy-tale life before the reality of her current presence-where she came from and how she got here; who she is today and why she landed in downtown Orlando. But what is this book really about? It's about a lot of things at once! It's about a soulful revelation in my life to reinvent myself; It's about a little farm girl from Miami who tells the story of her childhood dreams in fairy-tale format; It's about imagining something very original. Yet, I was totally inspired by all the great artistic icons of the second millennium, like Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and even the great American icons like Norman Rockwell and Charles M. Schulz. But really...it's all about making art happen in my community the "AngiArts" way. This Letterbook Story you hold in your hands was written to be read while relaxing on a picnic blanket on the shores of the beautiful Lake Eola. It stages an interactive, literary theatre experience like no other. After a brief adventure through literary fantasy, art sculpture lovers, letterboxing enthusiasts, and other literary adventurers are instructed to follow the monument map at the end of the story. Your mission is to ponder a moment of soulful self-prophecy, while embarking on a personal quest for artistic inspiration. Letterboxers, seek the letterbox treasure cache hidden somewhere at the "AA" landing sight. "Presto!" You're there! Don't forget to bring your logbooks. And, "Leave No Trace." You are standing at the Monument for Artistic Inspiration. The Identity of "AngiArts" is the result of a personal, inner-thought process that has possessed me to react with such intensity. It dramatizes a "heart-quakin' and a soul-shakin' adventure," delving deeply into the fantasy of my dreams, but resurfacing its way upward...right back into my present life...turning full circle to portray my unique "Walking Works of Art" creations to you. "I hope you have just as much fun and inspiration reading this book as I did writing it!

You can purchase this book from Amazon for $33.99

That's Not The Monster We Ordered- Children's Book


I have done a couple reviews from this author. I have loved them all. The latest one was My Grandpa is a Dinosaur. All these books are by Sky Pony Press company.

My littlest loved this book. I made the monster noises, to make it exciting.

The little boy in the book, has a friend who gets his very own monster. Everyone is so jealous. This monster can do so much cool stuff. He could yell louder than a pet lion. He could go down the stairs better than a slinky. He could carry the whole class home on his shoulders.

The little boy finally convinced his mom and dad to get one. So they ordered the best monster they could. The loudest, fastest, grass-eating and time-travelingest monster they could. But when they received their monster...it wasn't what they thought they had ordered. No one was impressed. He was more of a practical joker. What you order and what you receive might not be the item you wanted BUT that monster might be just the monster you need.

There are great morals to this for us all....

Sky Pony Press has quite a few really cool children's books. www.skyponypress.com

You should check them out.

Richard Fairgray, the author, has been publishing since he was 7 years old! He lives in New Zealand.

Terry Jones has done a lot of works with the author. Including the books I have reviewed.

You can get That's Not The Monster We Ordered for around $16.99 for hardcover. You can also purchase for the ebook.
Great for ages 3-6

Don't forget to also look for Gorillas in our Midst $16.99 and My Grandpa is a Dinosaur $16.99

Good Good Father -Children's Book




I absolutely love the song Good Good Father by Chris Tomlin I could listen to it over and over again.

I was excited when I found out that I was going to get to review the new kids book. It has not been released yet.


This book will be released on October 4th, 2016. You can preorder it from Amazon for $10.51 for the hardback version or for $6.99 for the Kindle.

You get to follow, little bear, Tucker on his journey. Tucker loved his friends and all his friends needed help. Some friends were sick, some always fighting, some hungry and some couldn't read. Sweet little Tucker wanted to help them all. I knew he could ask the King for help. But he felt he needed to bring the king a gift. What do you bring a King?
Everyone he passed on the way to see the King, told him different items that might make the perfect gift. When Tucker finally got to the castle the King ran to Tucker and told him that he was glad to see him. The King told Tucker he brought the perfect gift. The King went down, with Tucker, back to his friends. The King gave help to everyone who needed it. Tucker finally understood that he was a Good Fathernot just a Good Father but a Good Good Father. Tucker, in the end, asked the King what gift was the perfect gift? The King answered that Tucker was the perfect gift.

God loves us to come to Him. He will protect, teach, give us what we need, make us well and fill our lives with music and laughter but most of all, He loves us like a Good Good Father. What more could we ask for?

I was sent this book in exchange for my honest review. I am so thankful for this opportunity. This book was even a great reminder for myself, as an adult.

Office Depots National Backpack Program




So many kids go back to school with no backpack and no supplies. There are so many ministries and companies now that try to help with this desperate need. My kids have been blessed with some of these ministries in the past. I am very happy to post about opportunities like these!


National Backpack Program – 16th Anniversary



For children to succeed in school, they need to have the right tools: pencils, pens, crayons and such – and something to carry them in, of course. With these in hand, they can walk out the door each morning with a sense of pride – excited about the day ahead.

Unfortunately, millions of kids are far from properly equipped for school. In fact, untold numbers of youngsters head out in the morning with nothing but a plastic bag or a pillowcase to carry their books and school supplies in – if they even have any supplies to carry.

The Office Depot Foundation has worked exceptionally hard to change this troubling reality. By donating great-looking new sack packs containing essential school supplies to deserving children, we are giving them invaluable tools they can use to succeed in the classroom.

In 2016, the Office Depot Foundation is marking the 16th Year of its award-winning National Backpack Program by donating approximately 200,000 colorful, kid-friendly sack packs to kids. By the end of the year, Office Depot and the Office D2016_ODF_Sackpack-v-3[1] - compressedepot Foundation will have helped more than 4 million children since the inception of the National Backpack Program in 2001.


The sack packs we donate are designed with kids in mind – they come in seven different color combinations with kid-friendly graphics. You will not find the Office Depot Foundation’s logo anywhere on the sack packs – except for a removable paper tag. We want to be sure that children are proud to carry the sack packs they receive, with no risk of being stigmatized by something that clearly identifies it as an act of charity.


An important key to the success of the National Backpack Program is our collaboration with highly regarded nonprofit partners who help us connect the dots with thousands of children in all 50 states as well as internationally. Click here to learn about our 2016 national partner organizations.


Inside the sacks there is a small pencil case with a couple pencils, a small hand sharpener, a pk of 4 crayons and a mini ruler.

Every little bit helps! Thank you Office Depot for helping these communities!

5 Minute Night Time Bible Stories


As Christian parents, we have a huge responsibility. God has entrusted us with these tiny humans. We are to love, care for and lead them to Him. That is not a light job!

With our busy schedules, between sports, church functions, school and work that doesn't leave much time for spending time in the Bible. It is such a very important part of the day. This book gives such a cute story and makes sure that you can get that in before bed. Littler children don't have the attention span to sit still for long. These are perfect!

The pictures are sort of neat and very colorful!

This is actually a neat way to Bible for kids. This Bible is done in the New King James Version. Sometimes I feel like the King James Version is hard to understand, even as an adult. But, I think they did a great job for kids.


The back of the Bible shows how the pages are color coded for easy finds.


The topics/colors are:

Gold: God

Navy: Sin, evil,

Red: Jesus

Orange: washed clean from sin, new life

Green: growth in your new life as a Christian and Faith Walk

Blue: Prayer, Praise and Thanksgiving

Purple: Heaven

God Bless Our Country Board Book




With so much of my family being in the military, we celebrate Memorial Day and 4th of July with more than just a day off. Plus my oldest son was born on the 4th so he gets to have a "party" every year! Not very many children can say that their mom got to see fireworks from her hospital room. He is definitely my little fire cracker.

How do you honor these holidays?

This cute little board book has rhyming phases and fun to follow pictures. So cute for your little patriot!




You can purchase this book from Amazon for $6.99

My Grandpa is a Dinosaur Book by Sky Pony Press


I think that the bond between grandparents and their grandchildren is awesome! I love every one of our 6 kids but there is something about my granddaughter that is so different. Knowing that she came from our daughter.

This little girl saw that her grandfather was a dinosaur. She asked everyone if they saw the same thing. All the people she asked thought that she was silly. She went around wondering and curious. 1 Day she decided to ask him. When he said "yes" and that he wondered how come no one else could see it, she realized that she wasn't silly after all.

My husband loved reading this to our granddaughter. She will just wonder into "Pap Paps" office and sit there while he works. It is so cute!


The illustrations are so cute. The colors and designs just help your child join in each page.

This tall, hardback book would make a great gift.

Oliver's Heroes: The Spider Adventure



Follow Oliver, Mandy, Wiggles, Buster, Scraps, Frenchy and Mr. Bean on their adventure to find this striped and polka dotted spider. Every day they gather, under The Big Tree, to find out what adventure they are going on that day. Todays adventure begins when Wiggles tell the "heroes" about a strange spider that he saw. That spider scared it's person, a little girl.

My mom always taught me that bugs were more scared of me than I was of them. Why not purchase this cute book and learn the lessons that these cute dogs did.

Oh my goodness Oliver looks just like my Rennat.

Through the whole story, I was picturing my Rennat as Oliver. This story is so cute and has a great little lesson to it.





These dogs are real and have their own website. Go check them out!
