The Belle of Bravery Children’s Book + Giveaway

I wrote this post on behalf of Bible Belles and received Abigail The Belle of Bravery to thank me for my time.  All opinions are my own.

What’s the first thing that comes to your mind when you think of the word bravery?  For me, I think of the men and women who have fought on the front lines for our country.  Or selfless first responders and the people who have triumphed during life’s threatening times. But being brave doesn’t mean you have to be a hero.  Our little girls are faced with difficulties every day. They have many opportunities to show their bravery.

The Bible Belles just released their third book in the Adventures of Rooney Cruz series, Abigail – The Belle of Bravery.  My daughter and I fell in love with the first two books, Hannah – The Belle of Prayer and Esther – The Belle of Patience.  The series is teaching my daughter that she doesn’t have to conform to what the world wants of her, but instead, she learns to make a different kind of noise.


Abigail – The Belle of Bravery

In the new book, “Abigail,” Rooney is faced with a difficult choice after a tough afternoon with her brother and neighborhood boys.  Can she be brave enough?  Mari, Rooney’s personal angel, takes her on a journey through the story of Abigail.  She learns that she can call upon God to face any situation with bravery and confidence.  Take a peek!

The Author of Bible Belles

Erin Weidemann is the author of the Bible Belle series.  As a teacher and sports coach for many years, she has seen the struggles and insecurities of young girls.  They are constantly trying to fit in with the world’s standards.  But Erin wanted something different for her daughter – and all girls.  She wanted real heroes and a weapon for parents to battle back against the noise.  So Bible Belles was created.  Bible Belles is a wonderful series to help celebrate God’s beauty and mighty purpose.

Purchase and Giveaway

You can purchase Abigail – The Belle of Bravery or any of the Bible Belle books at BibleBelles.com for $14.99 each.  Bible Belles is also giving you an opportunity to win a copy of “Abigail” for your sweet tiny blessing.  Simply fill out the Rafflecopter form below to enter.

It’s getting to be that time of year again.  Sadly, I have already had the flu, sinus infection and conjunctivitis in both eyes.  It hit me all at once and I was so miserable.  The worst part is, mamas don’t have time to be sick.  But I was out for days.  I wish I would of had the Anypro 3.5L Cool Mist Humidifier at the time.  Having a humidifier could have made such a difference.

Night Night Farm Children’s Book + Giveaway

My children are fascinated with farm animals.  They could watch them all day and copy the sounds they make.  Naturally, when choosing a book to review from Tommy Nelson this month, I felt like Night Night Farm was a perfect bedtime story for them.

Night Night Farm

About Night Night Farm

When the sun begins to go down on the farm, you and your children can follow along as these sweet farm animals say good night to their mommies and daddies, as well as, their heavenly father.  Your little ones will be reminded that God loves them, too.

One Big Turkey Children’s Book + Giveaway

Disclosure: I wrote this review of One Big Turkey on behalf of Tommy Nelson.  All opinions are my own.

One of my son’s favorite stories is One Spring Lamb written by Anne Vittur Kennedy.  She has a new book out that is similar, except it’s related to fall and Thanksgiving.  I can’t tell you how many times we’ve read this book over and over.  Little M is definitely thrilled to have another book like his favorite because enjoys counting so much. This one is called One Big Turkey and it’s been a big hit.

One Big Turkey

About One Big Turkey

You can count your blessings with your child as you read along together with One Big Turkey. The beautiful, board book makes counting an enjoyable learning experience. The rhyming text will take you and your child on a fun, Thanksgiving adventure.

About the Author

Anne Vittur Kennedy loves the quiet space of her studio and lives in Ohio with her husband, Jack; her dog, Brody; and her horses, Sitka and Frisco.  Similar books she has written, include One Shining Star (perfect for the Christmas season) and One Spring Lamb (related to Easter).

My Thoughts

Even though the book is geared towards children 0-4 years old, there are many sight words that my 5-year-old picked up on.  This book is perfect for the upcoming Thanksgiving season. I love that it’s a board book.  It makes it very hard for my kids to accidentally (or on purpose) rip the cover or pages. You can purchase the same book we received for $8.99 at Faith Gateway Store.

Baby, Baby! Children’s Book + Giveaway

Disclosure:  I wrote this post on behalf of Propeller Consulting.  All opinions are my own.

My husband and I decided long ago that we only wanted two children.  As my littles start to grow out of the baby stages and move into independence, sometimes I get a bit sad.  As the cliche goes, they grow up so fast.  I miss the baby snuggles, tiny clothes and watching them master new skills.  But the things I don’t miss, is the cries (from both me and baby) and the sleepless nights.  We are very blessed, because we will have a sweet, baby niece soon.  I can’t wait to love on, snuggle her and read to her.  I’m looking forward to giving her a new book called Baby, Baby! written by Diane Stortz.

About Baby, Baby!

Baby, Baby! is a sweet, colorful board book that appeals to their interests, such as looking at books, other babies and their flowering abilities.  This short, rhyming poem applies all three in a sweet and happy way, while introducing baby to God’s love for them.  The simple words are paired with colorful images of babies engaging in familiar activities.  And it ends with a reminder that baby is always loved by God.

My Thoughts

The illustrator, Allie Busby, did a fantastic job with creating a diversity of babies throughout the book.  The mirror at the end of the book makes it personalized as well.  This is a fun and captivating book, that perfectly describes God’s love for your baby.  You can purchase Baby, Baby on Amazon for $7.99.

Independence Day with Applegate + Giveaway

I spent most of my childhood and young adult life on the beach.  Our family reunions, birthdays, Independence Day and after school shenanigans always seemed to revolve around the sun, sand and ocean.  We created some fun memories and great traditions that will last a lifetime.  Now that I am married and have kids of my own, our family has created our own traditions.

We don’t live as close to the beach anymore as I did when I was growing up.  But some of the same things we did on the beach, we now do in our own backyard.  We love having our family and friends over for BBQ’s, swim parties and making new memories.  And that’s what we did this 4th of July.

For July 4th, Applegate sent our family everything we needed for a great, delicious and healthy BBQ to enjoy, in exchange for sharing our experience with you, my readers.  Check out what was included in our kit and what you have a chance to win:

Independence Day Applegate Giveaway

  • Applegate natural beef hot dogs made with 100% grass beef
  • Sir Kensington’s Ketchup and Mustard
  • Vermont Bread Company natural buns
  • Applegate Cooler Bag
  • Applegate Tote Bag
  • Applegate Frisbee
  • Applegate Stainless Steel water bottle (adults)
  • Applegate Stainless Steel water bottle (kids)

Big C was so thrilled to receive her big box of goodies from Applegate.  You can just see the excitement in her face when she received a frisbee.

Independence Day Applegate Giveaway

Applegate is our number one choice for hot dogs because they only contain four ingredients, 100% grass-fed beef, water, salt and spices.  That’s it!  No artificial ingredients, synthetic nitrates, or antibiotics.  And they are so delicious.

Giveaway Time

Now, Applegate wants you to get on the grass with your family and kids, host a hot dog cookout and a frisbee toss.  Or maybe you want to have your friends over for a BBQ Bash.  Whatever you decide, here’s a chance for you to win your own Applegate “Get Out On Grass” Kit.  Use the Rafflecopter form below to enter and don’t forget to follow Applegate on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram.

God Bless Our Country Children’s Book + Giveaway

My husband spent many years protecting and serving our country in the military.  I am so proud of his courage and bravery.  To help my children understand why we celebrate holidays, such as Memorial Day and Fourth of July, I chose to review God Bless Our Country as an ambassador for Tommy Nelson.

With the summer months right around the corner, God Bless Our Country, is the perfect book to share with your young children.  It illustrates all the fun activities we share with our families, during the summer time, to celebrate our country.  This creative rhyming book makes it enjoyable to read over and over again.

God Bless Our Country has helped to reinforce to Big C God’s beautiful blessings.  She is able to understand more why we enjoy fireworks, picnics and parades.
