Great Ways to Give Back to the Community

I thought it would be nice this holiday to scour the internet and find way to give back to the community in case you want to make a small difference in a big way.  Not everybody has the means to do big gestures and in no way should you do anything that could put your family in harm's way.   Of course even now in days people can get killed just for smiling at someone, but here are some ways to check out.

 Volunteer at your local school or homeschool group by taking time in some way that will help others for example reading to the kids or if your religious, bible study time would not cost you anything.

 Fix and Serve Meals if you can afford this and you have the time, it could be real blessing to families poor and rich because everyone can need help.

Throw a yard sale and donate the profits to a charity or if you do not have time you can always get up a few boxes together and gift them to a Goodwill or Salvation army.  You do not have to gift things you need, but I am sure there are so many extra things in your life that someone else could really use.

Write a note of gratitude to your favorite people or take the time to tell someone you appreciate them in an email because that feels just as good as sending a smile.  It takes nothing to be a kind person unless your doing it for the wrong reasons.

I love handing out holiday cards to strangers because you do not have to mark your private information just writing a simple well wishes from someone who cares or whatever greeting will be more than enough.

If you have access to a recycling center, it may be a huge choice to try to start recycling anything you can in the time you have.  I know some states even have it included in weekly trash pickup which is even more perfect and there is no reason why you can not teach your family to place certain things in a separate container.  You can even get money from recycling certain things and use it to give back by donating to a church, or perhaps to people like Prophet Kofi Danso or wherever your heart takes you.

The idea I am going to present to you now sounds selfish but its not really because giving to yourself in terms of a restful night or longer shower can help you to be a better person for the community as well as your family and that is a great way to give back.   Keeping yourself mentally and physically healthy will always pay off when you want to give to back.

I would also like to mention that if you are choosing to provide a hand up not a hand out to the community make sure your doing it for the right reasons and do not expect a parade in your honor or to even be thanked.  Sometimes the best gifts do not require anything in return.   Also remember to show your kids safe ways to help and involve them too without forcing them to do anything and without guilting them because that is not really showing them the point.

The Ministry of Ordinary Places By Shannan Martin Review

The Ministry of Ordinary Places
Waking Up to God's Goodness Around You
By Shannan Martin
38915858
Popular blogger Shannan Martin offers Christians who are longing for a more meaningful life a simple starting point: learn what it is to love and be loved right where God has placed you.

For Christ-followers living in an increasingly complicated world, it can be easy to feel overwhelmed and unsure of how to live a life of intention and meaning. Where do we even begin?

Shannan Martin offers a surprisingly simple answer: uncover the hidden corners of our cities and neighborhoods and invest deeply in the lives of people around us. She walks us through her own discoveries about the vital importance of paying attention, as well as the hard but rewarding truth about showing up and committing for the long haul, despite the inevitable encounters with brokenness and uncertainty. With transparency, humor, heart-tugging storytelling, and more than a little personal confession, Martin shows us that no matter where we live or how much we have, as we learn what it is to be with people as Jesus was, we'll find our very lives. The details will look quiet and ordinary, and the call will both exhaust and exhilarate us. But it will be the most worth-it adventure we will ever take.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-  At first I wrote a huge three paragraphs for this review and had all kinds of mixed feelings.  My main thing is that with so many ways that your family could get harmed by your neighbors, just outright going to spread cheer might not be the way to go.   If practiced in a safe way and possibly with closer friends and family members, this book can be a good experience.  It does bring humility and enough guilt to make you rethink closing doors on some people and I would recommend this for the people in life that need more from others for themselves.  

I Declare War By Levi Lusko Review

I Declare War
Four Keys to Winning the Battle with Yourself
By Levi Lusko
38915906
Get out of your own way.

Whether you recognize it or not, you're at war with yourself. There's anxiety. Selfishness. Self-sabotaging tendencies. Narcissism. The black dog of depression. The inability to do the great things you long to do because you spend so many hours mindlessly drifting through the internet.

It is war, but all is not lost. You can win—if you choose to engage.

In I Declare War, Levi Lusko candidly shares about his struggles with moodiness, bullying, suicidal thoughts, night terrors, and difficulty managing himself. He identifies four weapons you have at your disposal—thoughts, words, behaviors, and power—and illustrates how to use them to achieve ongoing victory. These practical tools from God’s Word will help you learn to

retaliate against your anxiety by filling your heart with truth and making it inhospitable to terror
stop being victimized by your bad behaviors and become the victor you were born to be
overcome self-imposed isolation by learning to think right so you can live rightspare your family unnecessary heartache by confronting your dysfunction so they don’t have to. It’s time to stop being your own worst enemy. Declare war and become the person, the spouse, the parent, and the leader God intended you to be.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-  The book is written with truth and raw feelings included in a way that will connect to your lowest points while adding a spiritual need for God. It is laced as a faith based book that will help you to connect and not shy away from the war.  

Slammers Snacks for the Holidays .@slammerssnacks


With the holidays around the corner, keeping kids fueled through long shopping trips and traffic jams to grandma and grandpa’s house can be seemingly impossible. Convenience stores are stocked with super-sized Snickers and Skittles, and with diabetes and obesity on rise among kids, why not offer them a healthier, but fun option?

Slammers Snacks are tasty, superfood snacks designed to fuel kids with organic fruits and vegetables such as mangos, acai, sweet potato, and yumberries.  Not only are they a healthy alternative to sugar-laden candies and convenience store snacks, Slammers are, crumb-free, easily digestible, and serve as a great source of essential vitamins.

I received complimentary product.

Cassandra's Review- The slammers really do taste good and I enjoy them myself, of course they are perfect for the kids and just the right size for smaller hands.  You will need to help opening them because the tops are a little tricky.  I like that they do not have to be refrigerated until after opening so I can easily take on the go. 

Hip-Hop Lollipop By SUSAN MONTANARI Review

Hip-Hop Lollipop by Susan Montanari
Hip-Hop Lollipop
By SUSAN MONTANARI
Illustrated by BRIAN PINKNEY

ABOUT HIP-HOP LOLLIPOP
In this lyrical read-aloud filled with rhythm and rhyme and illustrated by Caldecott Honor winner Brian Pinkney, follow a little girl as she dances her way to bedtime.

Mama says, “Lollipop, stop! Stop!
Jumping snapping nonstop.”
Arms and shoulders pop ‘n’ lock.
Lollie’s dancing hip-hop.

Watch as Lollipop grooves her way through her bedtime routine, brushing her teeth to the beat and shimmying into pjs. She sways along with her sister, her parents, and even some enthusiastic pets until, finally, Lollie closes her eyes and dances through her dreams. Susan Montanari and Caldecott Honor winner Brian Pinkney offer a playful bedtime read-aloud that perfectly captures the joy of music, movement, and family.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-   A sweet quick story that if read out loud in a groovy way can get your kids really excited.  I really enjoy when a book can entertain any age and is clean, fun and easy for kids to read themselves if wanted.

My Brother’s Bride $50 Amazon Gift Card or Paypal Cash Giveaway

My Brother’s Bride by Rachael Anderson Abigail Nash leads a lonely existence. Her mother died giving birth to her, her father’s business dealings took him away more often than not, and her ailing great-aunt, unable to provide much in the way of companionship, was a lack-luster guardian at best. So when her dear friends offered to launch her into London society, it appeared Abby’s life was taking a turn for the better, with suitors and social engagements aplenty. When she marries a proclaimed darling of the ton, it seems she will at last settle into the life of her dreams. But appearances aren’t always what they seem, and dreams often become disappointments. Just months into her marriage, Abby finds herself widowed, penniless, increasing, and determined to never hope again. But when her late husband’s brother, the Earl of Brigston, attempts to thaw the numbness surrounding her heart, Abby must decide if she has it in her to risk another chance at happiness, knowing the odds are not in her favor.

Personalize your gift with hand finished jewelry from AJ's Collection


Women, especially Moms, love personalized gifts and many of them love jewelry too!  The AJ’s Collection line of beautifully hand finished, sterling silver necklaces and charms will fulfill both desires for the ladies in your life. 

Each charm they offer can be customized with the names of children and loved ones, or even the recipient’s own name. Choose from more than 100 different charm patterns and designs that are sure to touch the heart of the woman who receives them.  Swarovski birthstones can be added as well.  These unique necklaces are made in the USA with quick turnaround and delivery.

The perfect customized gift for Moms, Grandmas and women of all walks of life can be found at www.AJsCollection.com

Cassandra's Review-  I was sent a personalized charm necklace with names of people I do not know as my complimentary product, so that was off putting.  There was no paperwork or business card or anything at all but what is shown in the picture, so I did not even know where it came from.  I think when buying jewelry I would want to know where it came from and a little about the piece etc.  The piece just looked tossed in a bag and put in a lower end box and sent in a bubble mailer, so for a gift it had no wow factor and I will not wear jewelry with people I do not know, names engraved on it so it's like working for free.  However if you're looking for lower end jewelry at  a higher cost, I would recommend browsing this site.

SmartControl Fuel Can System

 Just in time for the onset of winter chores and sports, Scepter TM has introduced a new, easy-to-use fuel can system. Crafted with a unique push spout, the rugged SmartControl™ containers are designed for fast fills without spills.


            “The innovative spout design of the SmartControl system makes it easier than ever to fuel equipment like portable generators, lawn mowers and leaf blowers,” says Daniel Marshall, vice president of marketing and business development with Scepter. “Whether filling the snow blower or the snowmobile, the SmartControl system makes fueling easier, faster  and cleaner.

          “This isn’t anything like your grandfather’s old clunky, leaky metal gas can. The SmartControl fuel container is ideal for homeowner use, because it’s simple to use and store. This container is so reliable that landscapers, builders and other professionals can depend on the container day after day for workplace situations requiring continual refueling without spilling a drop.”

            Available in one-, two- and five-gallon sizes, the SmartControl line includes containers for gasoline, diesel and kerosene. Recipient of the “Best in Class” Award at the 2018 National Hardware Show, SmartControl containers are constructed of durable and safe high-density polyethylene.
Scepter SmartControl 1 Gallon Gas Container
SmartControl Features

            “One of the most exciting features of the SmartControl line is the ease of use,” says Marshall. “The spout provides a clean, fast, and hassle-free pour to fill everything from pressure washers to leaf blowers. With a single motion, the user simply presses the lever up to unlock the child safety feature with the palm of the hand, and then squeezes the large button. This first squeeze is done when upright to vent the container. Then, place the nozzle over the tank and simply squeeze again to pour just the right amount of fuel.”

    The SmartControl container helps save gas for where it’s needed by eliminating messy spills. The user-controlled flow makes it easier to direct the amount of fuel being dispensed, and because the container stores with the spout on, hands always stay clean.         

            “SmartControl is an extension of our best-in-class products known and trusted around the world,” says Marshall. “From cutting the lawn to navigating emergency weather events, the containers we manufacture provide consumers with peace of mind and ease of use when handling, transporting and storing their fuel. Our company is known for providing rugged and easy-to-use containers. SmartControl now joins our family of trusted products.”

I received complimentary product.


Paint Alchemy by Eva Marie Magill-Oliver Review

Paint Alchemy: Exploring Process-Driven Techniques through Design, Pattern, Color, Abstraction, Acrylic and Mixed Media by Eva Marie Magill-Oliver
Paint Alchemy Exploring Process-Driven Techniques through Design, Pattern, Color, Abstraction, Acrylic and Mixed Media
Description
Experience wonder and excitement as you mindfully take your painting technique to the next level: It’s Paint Alchemy.

Part of the new Alchemy series, Paint Alchemy explores how to build a painting practice. Whether you’re a novice or an experienced painter, you’ll learn how to create freely by combining a foundation in solid techniques and design principles with an open approach that stays focused on the moment, rather than the end result.

You will learn how to prepare your art space, work with intention, and move between action and observation, responding to the work along the way. Paint Alchemy will help you cultivate a full perspective on the process: from developing ideas in a sketchbook to crystalizing your vision.

As you work through the exercises, you’ll gain a better understanding of color theory, mark making, representational form, abstraction, and composition. Mindfulness, experimentation, and reflection will give way to wonder as your paintings develop.

I received a complimentary copy. 

Cassandra's Review- The book has good instruction and high quality photos.  It will help any age or stage in your creative process.

The League and the Legend by Brian Wells Review

The League and the Legend
by Brian Wells
42287870
After a back-to-school night that became a frenzied fight for survival, seventh grade has finally settled down for Jake, Lucy, and TJ. Of course, there are still your basic Level Three humiliations: awkward hygiene challenges, toxic nicknames, and science fair debacles. But at least nobody is running for their life.

That all changes when dangerous intruders descend on the historic Chicago hotel Jake calls home. After a daring escape, Jake, Lucy, and TJ find themselves fugitives on the run, chasing a series of cryptic messages that lead to a mysterious plot to steal Civil War codes codes that somehow still matter today.

Along the way they survive a shocking betrayal and unearth more stunning family secrets. In this sequel to the critically acclaimed The League and the Lantern, Brian Wells has once again crafted a fast-paced, adrenaline-pumping thriller, skillfully blending action, humor, and historical trivia.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review- I strongly suggest reading book one first to get the best experience.  This book is  great for younger readers and yet has enough of a story to keep older ages entertained as well.  The characters are written to life and the writing style has a flow that makes it easy to keep centered and read without wanting to go do other things. 

Rewire Your Heart By David Bowden Review

Rewire Your Heart
Replace Your Desire for Sin with Desire for God
By David Bowden
38915859
Bible teacher and acclaimed spoken-word artist David Bowden reveals the secret to winning the battle with sin.

Many Christians believe the only way to fight sin is to grit our teeth, strengthen our resolve, and rise above the onslaught of temptation. But in reality, we have a far better weapon in our struggle with sin than the will-power mantras associated with diet and exercise. This weapon is not saying "no" to sin but saying "yes" to God. In Rewire Your Heart, David Bowden helps us discover God's plan to overcoming sin by rewiring our desires with the Gospel. When we invite the Holy Spirit to transform our underlying affections with the good news of Jesus, we begin to break free from the patterns of sin, guilt, and determination, and discover the richer fulfillment found in joyfully obeying God's commands

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-  The book is complex and for the most part kind of hard to get through without really having to stop and think.  It will take work and practice to begin really making a change and for most the not having time or wanting will be a block.  The author does maintain the topics at hand and adds in a lot of biblical reference with the wording.  The book may be best for older readers or someone close in faith that wants to restart spiritually speaking. 

100 Days of Thanks Review

100 Days of Thanks
By Thomas Nelson Gift Books
36576010
Focus on the things that bring you joy with 100 Days of Thanks. Short inspirational readings, space to record your thoughts, and brief Scripture references in a high-designed four-color gift book will help you find a peaceful, happier life.

The rush of a busy schedule, a barrage of disheartening news stories, and the wear and tear of everyday life can be enough to drag anyone down. Simply pausing to recognize and express thanks for the good gifts that surround you has proven to make a major difference in happiness, peace, and contentment.

100 Days of Thanks, a beautifully designed inspirational book of short readings, Scripture verses, and journaling space is the perfect tool to promote Christian mindfulness and gratitude. Whether you are looking for a thoughtful gift to encourage a loved one or a simple tool to create a habit of thankfulness, this lovely little book is a wonderful place to start.

Take a few moments out of your day to be grateful and feel your burdens get a little lighter, starting today.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review- I enjoy the layout and inspiration the book has as well as it having the ability to bring joy to the reader.  There are not too many longer stories so you can enjoy the book in clips of time or treat yourself to an all day reading depending on your schedule.  I would recommend this for faith based people who want a mix of scripture and stories that soothe the soul.
