Pin It

I've been discussing a lot of different Bibles and devotionals, lately. Today, I wanted to share a special devotional that we've been reading, called the Big Picture Interactive 52-Week Bible Story Devotional. This particular devotional is specifically made for kids and offers a selection of unique features that set it apart from other children's devotionals that you may have come across in the past.

Bring the Bible to life each week of the year! This unique 52-week devotional is packed with value and includes interactivity kids will love. A Bible story is at the center of each weekly devotion, and a two-to-four minute video is available by scanning a QR code. Plus, a free downloadable app lets kids experience a digital “pop-up” (using Augmented Reality) of each Bible story along with narration by Jenna Lucado Bishop. The Big Picture Interactive Bible Story Devotional is the perfect way to bring the Bible to life in a kid’s heart!

Book Review: The Berenstain Bears School Time Blessings by Mike Berenstain

Pin It

The Berenstain Bears are a timeless classic. As a child, I personally enjoyed reading these books, so it's nice to see that Mike Berenstain is following in his parents footsteps by continuing to create stories of this beloved bear family. We recently got a sneak peak of the newest upcoming release, The Berenstain Bears School Time Blessings.

First, I know what you must be thinking, "School time? But we are just finishing up the school year." Many if not most of us are getting ready to enjoy the warm summer months–I know that we are! At the same time, they are short. This means the new school year will be here before we know it. Whether you have children who are just entering school for the very first time or ones who have already been in for a few years, The Berenstain Bears School Time Blessings is the perfect book for them to read right before they begin their new school year.

Comfort for the Entire Family: Warm Tradition Hot Water Bottle/Animal Pillow Review + GIVEAWAY

Pin It

Ahhh aches and pains...all the fun signs of getting older. I personally get them from time to time, particularly in my back and knees. When they do arrive I have one of two choices, take a couple of ibuprofen or rest with the good ol' heating pad. I personally prefer doing the later, since it's more natural and I'm honestly not a big fan of taking medicine unless completely necessary. Of course when the pains come at night, I get a little wary choosing the heating pad. You see it's an electric one and I worry about falling asleep with it on. Then there's the little caveat that you must actually be near an outlet when using it.

When I was approached with an opportunity to try a hot water bottle from Warm Tradition, I knew I couldn't say no. I needed a better alternative to what I already had. A hot water bottle–now why didn't I think of that?! In addition to hot water bottles, Warm Tradition also specializes in handmade covers for them.

Children's Book Review: My Toddler Bible by Juliet David #BlogTour

Pin It

I have been recently discussing a lot of the latest Bible releases. So far in the month of May, we've covered some pretty great teen Bibles, adult Bibles, and even devotional combos for the entire family. Of course, as a toddler mom I can't forget to leave some room for a Bible that is made especially for little ones. Today I want to share a sweet Bible that my son and I have been reading together called the My Toddler Bible.

Fans of Chris Embleton-Hall's cheerfully distinctive artwork will be eager to see this new Bible! Twenty stories--nine from the Old Testament and eleven from the New--are retold in a concise and friendly manner in a rounded, easy-to-read font. Very, very bright, and very, very fun!

A Tool for God's Virtual Builders: The Minecrafter's Bible, NIrV #Review

Pin It

I just love the fact that more and more Bibles are being made for specific audiences–not just various age groups, but those who may also enjoy certain hobbies, characters, etc. This is especially helpful for children since they are more apt to pick up a book that includes something they're a fan of. In the past, I have reviewed children's Bibles for Lego block builders and even marine biology enthusiasts. Did you know there is also a new Minecrafter's Bible being released in June? How neat is that?!
