My Review:
 I use tape a lot. We are a family of six and we can quickly use a roll of tape in less than a day. I also have a very active four year old little boy that is in love with tape right now. This past Christmas, as a matter of fact he went through three roles of tape in no time flat. We also use a lot of packing tape in our home and sometimes the actual dispenser can become quite a pain to use as the blade can become dull very quickly.

 The design of the Dispenserless Tape will be different than any tape you have ever used before. It has a new patented design that will allow you to tear the tape at perforated places marked by black dots so they are highly visible. The perforation is really good and strong as it didn't take much for me to tear a piece of tape away from the role. The sections of tape tear off in approximately 12 in sections perfect for any packages you are trying to get ready for shipping purposes.

 The patented design allows you to do things that you have to do without fussing with a dispenser and without having to find a pair of scissors to cut the tape. Right now, with Amazon Prime, this tape retails for $10.82, each roll has 55 yards of tape on it and it is 2 inches wide. It is a good strong packaging tape and it is perfect for all your shipping and packaging needs. If you would like to learn more, you can at this link.

CFBA Review: Then Sings My Soul by:Amy K. Sorrells

This week, the
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing
Then Sings My Soul
David C. Cook (March 1, 2015)
by
Amy Sorrells


ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

An Indianapolis native and graduate of DePauw University, Amy lives with her husband, three boys and a gaggle of golden retrievers in central Indiana. After writing and editing for her college newspaper, she combined a nursing degree with journalism and creative writing, which led to publishing and editing a wide array of medical and nursing writing and multimedia projects over the past 21 years, a position as director of communications of her church’s children’s ministry, as well as a weekly column for a local newspaper which ran from 2009-2012. She has been a two-time semi-finalist for the ACFW Genesis awards, and was the winner of the 2011 Women of Faith writing contest.

When she’s not reading or writing, Amy loves spending time with her three sons; spicy lunches and art gallery walks with her husband; digging in her garden sans gloves; walking her dogs; up-cycling old furniture and junk; photography; and friends.


ABOUT THE BOOK

When Nel Stewart returns home due to the sudden death of her mother, she realizes her beloved father, Jakob, is struggling with dementia. With the reappearance of a high-school sweetheart, deliveries from Ukraine addressed to her, and the discovery of a mysterious, vintage aquamarine gemstone, Nel senses God is pulling her into the past to restore their faith and their futures. Told partially through Jakob's flashbacks of fleeing genocide-ridden eastern Europe at the turn of the twentieth century, the novel combines elements of mystery, history, faith and romance to reveal how God redeems the broken years ... and our future.

If you would like to read the first chapter of Then Sings My Soul, go HERE.


My Review:
 Nel Stewart never thought she would return home. But when her mom dies, suddenly she unwillingly heads towards home. Arriving back at home she finds her father in far worse condition then she thought. Having already talked to him on the phone prior to coming back she had no idea he had dementia. Nor did she expect to find that her high school sweetheart has returned, as well. seeing your high school sweetheart day after day isn't so easy---since Nel is still pining away for him.

 As Jakob, Anna's father constantly loses out on his present reality, he drifts back to when he was younger. Jakob escapes the Germans and retreats to New York where he finds the love of his life. But there is more to the story and Jakob must find a way to tell Nel before it's too late.

 A sweet, sweet story that will not leave my thoughts for a very long time!

Review: Unbound by:J.B. Simmons

Unbound (Omega Trilogy, #1)
About the Book:
  He must be released for a little while.
But the one who sees doesn’t believe.


Elijah Goldsmith has nightmares he needs to ignore. Why would a rich kid from Manhattan dream three straight nights about a dragon and the destruction of St. Peter’s Basilica? He’s never even been to Rome.

It’s bad timing, too. He’s graduating soon and applying to be a spy in the International Security Agency. That’s where he meets Naomi. She’s the kind of girl who makes boys like Elijah want to share their secrets. Were they brought together to learn what his secrets mean? There’s more to their sparks than they think.

This is 2066, the year the world ends.


About the Author:
J.B. Simmons writes thrillers with an apocalyptic twist, and political philosophy clothed in fantasy. His latest novel, Unbound, tells the story of a rich kid from Manhattan with nightmares of a dragon and the world ending in 2066. J.B. lives outside Washington, DC, with his wife, two toddlers, and an intriguing day job. He writes before dawn and runs all day. His secret fuel: coffee and leftover juice boxes. 

My Review:
 Rich kid, Elijah Goldsmith, aspires to be a spy. Graduation couldn't come soon enough for him to finally sign up. But as it gets closer to graduation, Elijah begins having odd dreams about Rome and dragons. He believes that the dreams are just dreams, until that is he meets a girls by the name of Naomi, he starts to question even that.

 After being tied down and confined to a chair Elijah, Naomi, and three others, discover they in fact have been asked to join International Security Agency. They are to learn the new way of being a spy and how to protect themselves and others. Elijah discovers that Naomi is Catholic, one day when he attends mass with her. It was sort of strange considering the fact he is a Jew. She is able to introduce him to people that can interpret his dreams. But he can NOT under any circumstances allow the International Security Agency find out.

 Keeping secrets from spies isn't easy, and that will be proven. Can this rich boy find out the truth behind his dreams all while keeping everyone around him safe??

 If you ever want to read some great writing that involves apocalyptic happenings coupled with anything Godlike than you have definitely come to the right place. J.B. Simmons, is the perfect author to follow! He is able to pull you in and hold you there until the end of the book. Strong characters and great plot line!

Review: Growing A Strong Marriage:Vol. 1 Starting Strong DVD&Study Guide by:Various Contributors

 
About the Product:
Learn from candid interviews with famous Christian authors and
leaders:
John and Stasi Eldridge
Gary and Lisa Thomas
Art and Lisa Terkeurst
Chip and Theresa Ingram
Gordon and Gail MacDonald
Les and Leslie Parrott
This unique video study series on growing a stronger marriage
is a great starting point for couples as they pursue deeper
communication and understanding with one another. Through
videos, discussion with other couples, and Bible study, this
resource will help men and women become rooted and
grounded together in Christ and committed to each other.
This volume covers the biblical foundations of marriage:
Starting Strong (DVD 1)
Session 1 - How We Met
Session 2 - Foundation in Marriage
Session 3 - Identity in Christ
Session 4 - Paths to Christ in Marriage


About the Study Guide Author:
 Amy McGowan holds a Bachelor of Arts in biblical studies (Ouachita Baptist University) and a Master of Arts in Religion in marriage and family counseling (Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary). She has a passion to help strengthen marriages and teaches marriage enrichment seminars alongside her husband.

My Review:
 You don't have to tell me that marriage is downright hard. My husband and I have been married to each other, with this being our first and last marriage, for 20 years now---it doesn't get easier, but it definitely gets better. We recently the past year as a matter of fact have been working hard on our marriage, not that it was crumbling but there were definite cracks in the road that had went too long without repair. God took this time to walk us through some pretty heavy stuff, stuff that we didn't realize was weighing us down. We believe He did this so that we could shake it off completely and so we could drop it now and forever. And we thank Him everyday that He did this with us and for us. It was an eye-opening experience to say the least!

 Growing A Strong Marriage DVD&Study Guide, is an excellent way to begin the journey of getting back to God and to one another. There are six couples that head up the DVD portion of the program that may look or sound familiar to you and that's because either one or both of the speakers have written well known books that either you have heard of or read throughout the years. This study is Biblical principle at it's best! My husband and I know that without God at our center we are automatically doomed. Our marriage has had it's emotional ups and downs and when it did we were not in a good place with the Lord.

 Along with the DVD portion of the program or study, you can also purchase a study guide that walks you through each session that is a tremendous help. My husband and I did each session and listening to the speakers made it fun, because we knew exactly what they were talking about when they described issues in their own marriages. God should always be who you communicate with throughout the process of rebuilding your marriage, especially if you can no longer communicate with each other. I know in our marriage God is who turned everything around for us. We are thankful everyday for His intervention. He is an awesome Father that wants to see us work everything out, I can attest to that!

 If you are interested in purchasing this DVD/Study Guide for yourself or a group, you can do so at this link. This DVD/Study Guide are available for $19.99 and there are subsequent studies also available, as well. If you would like to learn more about this study or others that are offered, you can at this link.

Review:Bash and Lucy Fetch Jealousy by:Cohn/Cohn

Bash and Lucy Fetch Jealousy
About the Book:
From an award-winning Mom-Son team featured on the Today Show, Bash and Lucy Fetch Jealousy is a contemporary boy-and-dog book. Bash's dog, Lucy, helps coach his soccer team, and Lucy leads the team to the championships. But Bash is overcome with jealousy when Lucy enchants a team of Special Olympics kids who say they want her to coach their team. Can Bash overcome his jealousy and learn to share Lucy with kids who say they need her?

My Review:
 Bash has a hard time accepting his very outgoing dog, being well outgoing and friendly. He focuses so much on this that he loses Lucy for a short time and during Lucy's absence, he really has time to think about this. He gets upset when a local boy comes to the park with his special needs dog. He starts to question everyone's motives and decides that his very talented dog is only good enough for his soccer team. He soon learns what true friendship is all about when he has to allow Lucy to help coach other teams because they truly need her and she loves helping as well.

 A great children's book on the art of friendship and the feel good notion of sharing even if its a dog. The illustrations and the story are a perfect back drop to teach your child about sharing and being nice to others. A great book on an awesome subject!
