Purex PowerShot: Review

Thanks to Purex for detergent to review, and for the coupons for the giveaway. All opinions my own.   Housekeeping is not one of my hobbies, but honestly, laundry isn’t a task I mind. Dump the dirty clothes into the washer, pour in detergent, punch a button, and soon the clothes is clean! It’s kind […]

Book reviews may contain affiliate links. I think we’ve all had the experience of beginning a book, thinking we’ll love it, and then … not. Such, sadly, was the case with Guests on Earth. I picked up this historical fiction set at Asheville’s Highland mental hospital in the ’30s, based largely on the reviews saying […]

Thanks to SheSpeaks/P&G for sponsoring this post. All opinions my own. Here in the Midwest, and apparently across the nation as well, flu season is brutal this year. I just read that 22 in my state, and 8 in my own city, have died from the flu this year. That’s scary! At our house, we […]

Thanks to Livionex for a tube of toothpaste to review. All opinions my own. With age comes … work. Hard work. I remember a few years ago reading something about back fat. Back fat??? I thought. Some people actually have fat on their backs? How could this be? It almost seemed like a moral failing. […]

Thanks to Will Hillenbrand for a review copy of Snowman’s Story. As a former teacher, a mom, and — well, just as a human being, I love children’s picture books. I love looking at them and appreciating the skill and effort required to produce the artwork they contain. That’s just what “Snowman’s Story” by Will […]

Thanks to Family Christian for providing a review copy of this book, and the giveaway certificate. All opinions mine; no financial compensation was received. No doubt about it: kids love animals. So, what better way to introduce kids to Bible stories than to use animals, right? Right. How about a rat? Before you immediately turn […]

This month’s book reviews: We visited Yellowstone last year and it was amazing. One of the things that surprised me was just how huge the park was. Being from Indiana, I’m used to a “park” being something you can walk across in thirty minutes. Not so out west — I was shocked at how often […]

Peppa Pig Bubbles

I know, I know – I’ve talked about Peppa Pig before. And I know, my own girls have passed the stage where they’re captivated by adorable animated animals speaking with British accents. But I haven’t! So, today I’d like to introduce you to another Peppa Pig DVD called Bubbles. It features 14 “peppasodes” for a […]

Devotional books — if you’re like me, you’ve read a few. More than a few, most likely. Each has its own flavor. These days, many devotional books seem to be very “real”/transparent. They’re full of the grief and sorrows of life, and they assure us that God is with us through it all. While that’s […]

I have been a fan of children’s author/illustrator Jan Brett for years. She draws adorable, enchanting animals, and it was her depictions of hedgehogs that led to our getting hedgehogs of our own as pets. Years ago, she visited Fort Wayne, and I brought the girls to hear her. When I learned that she was […]
