My family has decided to start our first garden this year and with so much land, I was in great need of a tiller.  I was so happy to try out the Earthwise tiller and it arrived just in time because I have over 17,000 seeds and seedlings to plant.    My goal is not only help my family but also my neighbors to be able to eat healthy foods for free, which is really what should be happening in the world today.  

I took this video of one of my older teens working with the tiller.  

Here is another photo of it and the video shows it in action.

Cassandra's Review-  This tiller is more for a smaller area and worked better when the grass and rocks were dug up first.  It is good for the first layer of actual dirt and does really grind it up, but it does pull hard forward and will really juggle around.  You need to make several passes in order to really get into the ground and get better results.

However I think that if you are re tilling every year, a very small space, this is going to be great.  Also the cord gets in the way a lot when in use, so I think I cordless tiller may be easier to manage as far as that goes.
We also had a minor issue with it getting stuck in the fence, but lesson learned on how far to stay away from it.    I am still so very blessed to have a tiller at all.   I think for my project a rear tine tiller that is a little heavier would work more efficiently.   The sound is not really loud more like a heavy duty vacuum.  It is also clean for the environment which is a huge plus.

I wanted to say a huge Thank You to Earthwise for helping my family and hopefully my community if everything grows right.

Why can’t I sleep?   It’s the question that keeps many of us up at night.   If the struggle to fall – or stay – asleep becomes frequent, our health and well-being can suffer in a myriad of ways.   Poor or insufficient sleep and the resulting fatigue can affect our professional performance and interpersonal relationships, increase our risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes, lower your libido, generate depression, weight gain and cause skin to age prematurely.

According to Dr. Prudence Hall, MD of The Hall Center (, many doctors are quick to prescribe drugs rather than going deeper to diagnose and treat the real causes of poor sleep.    Hall – one of the world’s leading practitioners of regenerative medicine – believes that many sleep issues are caused by hormone levels, which can easily be rebalanced and restored without resorting to chemical solutions.

How to Overcome Worry By Dr. Winfred Neely Review

How to Overcome Worry: Experiencing the Peace of God in Every Situation
Do you struggle with worry or anxious thoughts on a regular basis? Does your mind get fixated on the same concern over and over? Do you know you should stop worrying but repeatedly fail to do so?

Dr. Winfred Neely, who has experienced his fair share of anxiety-inducing circumstances, walks you through Philippians 4:6–7 to offer real solutions. In His Word, God tells us to stop worrying, pray about everything, and expect His peace. This is a true promise of Scripture, and this book will help you to lay hold of it.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-  The book is a shorter read but that does not take away from the filling of knowledge from the author.  It also includes scripture to help you to uplift your spirit and combat worry.  If you are struggling and also believe in God this book will really help to brighten your mood.

The Resurrection of Gavin Stone DVD Review #GavinStoneMovie


The Resurrection of Gavin Stone is an inspirational comedy rated PG about faith and forgiveness. Gavin Stone, a washed-up former child star is forced to do community service at a local mega- church and pretends to be a Christian so he can land the part of Jesus in their annual Passion Play only to discover that the most important role of his life is far from Hollywood.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-  A powerfully directed, faith based movie that will connect well with Christians.   The movie has great plots and enough going on that I was not bored or distracted.  The acting was believable which helped to really make an impactful experience.

One day that little plus sign appears on the stick, and you realize your life is about to change forever—you’re going to be a mom! Whether you’re still in the days of 2am feedings and loads of dirty diapers, or you’ve made it to that bittersweet moment of their college graduation, this book will make you laugh out loud with its insightful and funny observations about motherhood.

From the days when you read every parenting book ever written—while your husband plays golf—to the hours you spent polishing up your adult child’s resume, parenting is a roller coaster. Harry H. Harrison Jr. makes it just a little easier with his trademark humor and truisms as you learn that your job as a mom is the most important one you’ll ever have.

Cassandra's Review- The book is filled with sayings that remind me of the other book by this author where is it the same but with Dads as the title and of course different sayings.   I did not find it super amusing, but it might be nice as a gift for first time moms.
