Simply Sprouted: Way Better Snacks #CheersVoxBox Review {Healthy Non-GMO Snacking}

Pin It

Yesterday, I shared a brief post on the new Cheers to You VoxBox that I received, and how excited I was to be part of the unveiling. What's even more enjoyable is the chance to share my experience with the goodies that were inside.

I like to consider myself a foodie, so when I have the opportunity to try anything that is...well...edible, I'm all in! One of the products that was included in my Cheers to You VoxBox was a snack size bag of Simply Sprouted Way Better Snacks, Simply So Sweet Chili Corn Tortilla Chips. To be honest, this had been the very first time that I'd even heard of the brand.


Jim Breen, Founder of Live Better Brands had this to say about his product:
It all started with a simple vision to create a better snack. We wondered, wouldn’t it be great to go back to a time when the food we ate was actually nutritious and good for you. You know, before decades of environmental harm and mega food conglomerate processing wiped out most of the nutrients which used to be abundant in the food your grandparents ate. To make products you could feel good about eating again and sharing with others. Well, with that in mind, we decided to do just that.

Unboxing My New "Cheers to You" VoxBox #CheersVoxBox

Pin It

It seems like ages since I've received a VoxBox from Influenster. When I took my blogging hiatus after having my son, I kind of stayed out of the loop. That's why I was thrilled to receive a recent invite to try the new Cheers to You VoxBox!

Those who have been reading my blog for a few years may already know that I enjoy sharing information about the VoxBox goodies I receive. These little boxes of surprises are always so exciting for me, since they're very reminiscent of a subscription box – you never know what's inside until you open it!

sensory play, sensory activities while reading, Bible Activities

With a growing toddler, I am all about having him engage in plenty of sensory activities. Since he already loves books at such a young age, The Play-Along Bible offers him a chance to enjoy the best of both worlds–acting out the book while he reads it.


ABOUT THE BOOK: 
The Play-Along Bible inspires children’s imaginations while growing their understanding of and love for God’s Word. Through simple hand motions, facial expressions, verbal exclamations, and funny noises, kids can participate and respond to God’s amazing story. Whether it’s acting out the dawn of creation by making a funny fish face or belting out a giant roar while pretending to be a ferocious beast in Daniel’s lions’ den, kids will encounter hundreds of fun ways to actively engage with the Bible. Using this fresh and easy, multisensory approach, you’ll be surprised how well your child will recall and absorb the Scriptures. Adding to the experience are delightful full-color illustrations from British artist Susie Poole.

Learn Everything God Tells Us About Angels {Angels in the Bible Storybook by Allia Zobel Nolan}

Pin It

Throughout my life, I've always been fascinated with the subject of angels. Do they exist? What do they really look like? Do I have a guardian angel? These are some of the questions that I've previously pondered. The beauty of it is– all of these questions can be answered right in the Bible. According to what is written, angels most certainly do exist. Many accounts in the Bible show us that they can take on many different appearances. As for guardians angels, throughout God's word we can see multiple mentions of them watching over us–protecting us.


For he will order his angels to protect you wherever you go. They will hold you up with their hands so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone.– Psalm 91:11


The rider standing among the myrtle trees then explained, “They are the ones the LORD has sent out to patrol the earth.”– Zechariah 1:10
