Amy Grant Tennessee Christmas CD - Giveaway

I love Christmas Music and now that it is December I can play it all day if I want to! However, last weekend I received a new CD in the mail and so I broke my no Christmas music till December 1st rule and grabbed it on my way to the city. Captain loves it when we get new CDs so he was really excited to be in the car for a new one. Plus, it was Christmas music so to him it was a double bonus. 



We received the new Amy Grant CD Tennessee Christmas. It's a really nice CD and contains a mixture of classic Christmas songs and ones I haven't heard before. It was very pleasent to listen to it as we drove.  I have played it a couple of times this week. Playing it with the real fire crackling and it really brings that Christmas feeling.


 Amy Grant is putting together a cool video for Christmas and has her own hashtag so that she can see your Christmas surprises. Anyone can participate; just upload any videos you have surprising loved ones at Christmas time to social media and use the hashtag #TNChristmasSurprise. A complilation video will be put together and uploaded to Amy Grant's social media.

Twenty Five Days of Kindness #lighttheworld


Being kind is something I think we all can be better at. However, we all seem to get a little better during the Christmas season.

Today we start our advent calenders. My kids love them and look forward to their little chocolate treat every morning.

What if we looked for ways to help others for the next twenty five days instead. Well if this is something you would like to work on with us then you might find this website a great resource.


“29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
Matthew 11:29–30

We always feel the desire to help others this time of year but sometimes we run out of ideas or we think our idea isn't good enough. You can see all the details of our #LighttheWorld campaign online.

I have already seen evidence of this campaign. I have a friend who lives in London, she prepared some special bags to hand out breakfast to the homeless this morning. Others have prepared bags to keep in their car incase they see someone in need. I know others that keep giftcards in their vehicles to hand out to the homeless or needy.

There are so many ways we can serve others. It's important not to worry about whether or not you are doing enough, just do something.

I have so many fun childhood memories helping people. From small things like dropping off a plate of cookies and running away, to delivering a box with a complete Christmas dinner inside and many others. My parents were great examples to me and are still always willing to help anyone in need. My husband and I have found ways to keep this tradition alive and it is important to us.

The main point is not to wait to act until you have thought of the ideal or perfect act of service, but just act.

Christmas Love Letters From God {Book Review and Giveaway}

I love books and Captain loves it when we get books in the mail to review. This latest one turned up and Captain was really excited. I used to love books with flip ups and pop ups when I was young. This book is cute and has flaps that are in the form of a letter from God.


The book is written for children from four to eight. Captain is at the higher age bracket and can read extremely well. He loves the book and likes that it's just a fun easy to read book. It combines both prose and poetry to tell the story of Jesus's birth. There are seven stories starting with Isaiah's prohect and ending with the visit of the wise man. After each storie there is a letter written as if from God attached to each page. There is a little space to write the child's name, so they can be addressed to the child. There are special bible verses, and words of love, promise and hope.

The book is written by Glenys Nellist and illustrated by Rachel Clowes. The pictures are amazing full of detail. I am so glas that we have been able to add this to our Christmas book traditions.

You can find the book on Amazon. or on the website.


Or you can enter below to win your own copy.

Where Jesus Slept - Review and Giveaway

I love Christmas books. I was sent a wonderful Christmas book called Where Jesus Slept by Norma Lewis

This is a cute picture book written by Norma Lewis and illustrated by Katy Hudson.

My kids loves it when I get our Christmas books out. Captain was so excited when he opened a box to find a new book.

The story starts with the announcement written in Luke 2:10-11 that the Savior has been born in Bethlehem, the city of David.

It's a very simple but sweet story that tells about the birth of the Savior. I love the illustrations and although the story is very simple it is written in a very nice way.

The last scripture is John 3:16 'For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son. that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life'.

This will be a favorite in our Christmas library for many years.

I have a great opportunity for one of my readers - You can enter to win a copy of this book! Enter below.
