Cassandra's Review-  The book is created so that your child's face will only be present in a few places, instead of as an actual character. It does place the name of your child several times and in appropriate places.  The story is very well written and, I think girls will really like this book.  If you have older boys, they may not care so much for the theme.  The book itself is made really well and bound so that the pages stay and do not fall out.   The story is very short and would make a great bedtime read.

Cassandra's review- A super simple game that my children love. You do not need to be skilled or play an instrument to have fun. Being able to create music with a special needs child is so precious, because they really get to express and feel the process and this game is really well thought out. All of my children, no matter what age can enjoy this, even if they are too little to play they can listed to the others songs.  You will need a device to be able to hear the finished compositions otherwise its will just be a lot of moving around notes and such.

FAITH Christian Jewelry dot com Review and Giveaway

I really enjoyed browsing the site and they have great pieces.   You can find really nice jewelry for around 20.00 and up.

I received this DELUXE SHIELD CROSS WOOD - CLEANSED  ARV 26.50 complimentary 

Solid and weighty, stainless steel Pendant. Front side has high polished cross and frame surrounded in wood. Back side has engraving with black filling "The Blood - The Blood Of His Son Jesus Cleanses Us From All Unrighteousness. 1 John 1:7." Measures 1 1/2" x 1" x 1/4" thick. 24" steel ball chain can be cut down by customer to desired length.  

Cassandra's Review -  The pendant is outstanding and the engraving is top notch.  The chain is a basic dog tag and kind of reminds me of a fan pull.  I would recommend taking time to browse the site, because there are a lot more high end pieces as well.

Cassandra's Review- Super easy to learn how to use this. It works fast and having a sharp knife makes preparing foods so much easier.  I like the green color, but also comes in blue. You can sharpen using just one hand.  You only need to pass the knife through a few times to get great results.

Have you stopped having visitors over because you're ashamed of your mess?
Do you worry you'll feel embarrassed if the landlord, a plumber, or a repair person needed to visit your place?
Do you constantly compare yourself to people who seem to "have it together?"
Does your habitual procrastination leave you feeling depressed and anxious?
Do you know the 25 characteristics and behaviors of the human ostrich?
Are you concerned that your child or someone you care deeply about is becoming a habitual procrastinator?
The Solution To Your Habitual Procrastination Is Here!

Stop falling victim to the downward cycle of procrastination and depression.
Stop feeling overwhelmed and immobilized with fear by learning how to effectively cope with your tasks and responsibilities.

About the Author:

David Parker suffered for years with depression and anxiety. During a particularly low point he recalled a friend's advice and started keeping a feelings diary. As time passed, he saw a connection between the tasks that he avoided facing and his poor feelings and low self-esteem. Armed with this insight, David taught himself to face his tasks and the overwhelming feelings they brought by learning to focus on Just One Task, which he incorporated into "The J.O.T. Method™.�? David Parker has lived in London, San Francisco, and Brooklyn, New York.

This book was previously published as: How Many Procrastinators Does It Take to Change a Light Bulb: Take Control of Your Life and Defeat Immobilizing Depression! Unfortunately, some consumers found that title to be a bit too lighthearted and they questioned whether the book was serious. Its new title, The More You Do The Better You Feel: How to Overcome Procrastination and Live a Happier Life, better reflects its serious nature.

Cassandra's review-  I admit that sometimes I fall into a slump and do not want to lift a finger all day. However when you're a mom and solely responsible for everything, that is just not possible.   This book helps to get you up and going strong and taking your strength back.  A wonderful author! 

A MORE CHRISTLIKE GOD By Bradley Jersak Review

A More Christlike God—A More Beautiful Gospel

About the book:
A More Christlike God (April 2015)

What is God like? A punishing judge? A doting grandfather? A deadbeat dad? A vengeful warrior?

Believers and atheists alike typically carry and finally reject the toxic images of God in their own hearts and minds. Even the Christian gospel has repeatedly lapsed into a vision of God where the wrathful King must be appeased by his victim Son. How do such good cop/bad cop distortions of the divine arise and come to dominate churches and cultures?

Whether our notions of 'god' are personal projections or inherited traditions, author and theologian Brad Jersak proposes a radical reassessment, arguing for A More Christlike God: a More Beautiful Gospel. If Christ is "the image of the invisible God, the radiance of God's glory and exact representation of God's likeness," what if we conceived of God as completely Christlike---the perfect Incarnation of self-giving, radically forgiving, co-suffering love? What if God has always been and forever will be cruciform (cross-shaped) in his character and actions?

A More Christlike God suggests that such a God would be very good news indeed---a God who Jesus "unwrathed" from dead religion, a Love that is always toward us, and a Grace that pours into this suffering world through willing, human partners.

Cassandra's review-  You will need to have a strong faith to get anything from this book.  To not know or follow God at all, then this is not your kind of book.  To want to find and explore with faith, this might peek your interest.  If you are a faith loving holy roller and love everything pertaining to God's love and want to soak yourself in knowledge, this is going to be an excellent read.
