Review: Mindfulness for Kids: 30 Fun Activities to Stay Calm, Happy, and in Control by:Roman/Wren

 Mindfulness for Kids: 30 Fun Activities to Stay Calm, Happy, and In Control
**Disclosure**This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the publisher. All opinions are my own.

About the Book:

Mindfulness for Kids offers fun activities for kids ages 6-12 to stay cool, happy, and present with mindfulness.
Homework horrors, chores, and not-so-friendly friends—that’s enough to make any kid’s brain hurt. The secret to staying cool is easy: it’s called mindfulness—and this book gives kids fun activities to practice it on their own.
Mindfulness for Kids applies mindfulness exercises to stories and real-life scenarios that kids go through at home, school, and with friends. Shared through the voices of five children: Jasmine, Willow, Kayli, Colby, and Zeke, Mindfulness for Kids is an engaging, kid-friendly guide for handling tough situations and powerful emotions mindfully.
From using belly breathing to help with panic before a presentation to actively listening to siblings, Mindfulness for Kids addresses the everyday challenges that kids face with:
Mindfulness 101 that teaches kids what mindfulness is, and how they can be mindful of their emotions and senses. Relatable, real-life scenarios that kids encounter at home, school, and with friends. 30 Fun exercises that show kids how tricks like a gratitude list, “counting to calm”, and even yoga poses can help them relax and feel better from not-so-nice feelings. Mindfulness is a kind of superpower we all have but don’t know how to use. In this book, kids will learn how to use this power to feel good about themselves and the world around them through activities and stories told by kids, for kids.

My Review:
 If you have been a parent for even a minute you start to see the jealousy come out in your child like a massive tidal wave. Some of us rarely see but in the case of my children it never ends. I have four kiddos and it is a constant battle to get them to get along. You have all these different personalities living under one roof so I can understand why it would get out of hand. And out of hand it does and it escalates pretty quickly.

 The authors of Mindfulness for Kids, know exactly where I'm coming from and together they have created this book in a way to help. They offer several different situations and scenarios to help moms like me to make it through the day without losing my mind.

 Geared towards children that are ages 6-10. Each section is divided by emotions that are evoked during the crazy and helpful subtle advice is given along with different scenarios and situations.

A very helpful read!

Review: My Heart Belongs In Gettysburg, Pennsylvania by:Murray Pura

 My Heart Belongs in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania: Clarissa's Conflict
**Disclosure**This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the publisher. All opinions are my own. 
About the Book:
When War Reaches Clarissa’s Back Door, the Trustworthy Become Even Fewer.
Journey into Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, of 1863 where Clarissa Avery Ross lives a full life. By day she is the daughter of a respectable shoemaker being courted by seminary student Kyle Forrester. But by night she is a conductor on the Underground Railroad, working with a mysterious man called Liberty. She would like to share her work with Kyle, but he refuses to enlist when the war breaks out. How can she remain true to a man being labeled a coward? When the war comes to her back door in an epic battle, the greatest challenges to her faith and love are yet to come.

My Review:
 The Civil War era is beyond fascinating it has so many twists and turns and exciting history behind it all it is no wonder that this famed author made such a masterpiece. Murray Pura is nothing short of miraculous. His words on written page speak to me and cause me to stop what I'm doing and sit and enjoy. He can make the words jump off the page and transport you to another time and place. 

 Clarrisa is a very busy girl her main goal is to see that every slave becomes free so she is leading a great life out in public for all to see while at night she is working with the Underground Railroad. I absolutely love her sass and her strong will to not let anything hold her back from what she believes in. I love reading about strong women and this book has exactly what it takes to be a best seller in that regard.

 Devotionals during the holidays are a lot of fun. If gives you an intentional place for quiet during the busy times and it helps you retain focus on whats important.

Review: Jesus Calling:The Story of Christmas by:Sarah Young

 Jesus Calling: The Story of Christmas (board book)
**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the publisher. All opinions are my own.

About the Book:
Jesus Calling ® : The Story of Christmas uniquely teaches the Christmas story to your children by starting at creation and sharing that Jesus has always been present and that God has always had a plan for Christmas. Bible verses and Jesus Calling devotions are on every spread of this beautifully illustrated book with foil and glitter on the cover.

Teach your children the story of Christmas . . . starting from creation! In Jesus Calling®: The Story of Christmas, children will discover that God always had a plan for Christmas.

Christ was chosen before the world was made.

—1 Peter 1:20

The Christmas story began long, long ago. Before the angel Gabriel told Mary she would have God’s Son. Before the shepherds saw the angels and before the wise men saw the star.

Even before the sun and the moon shone for the first time, before the first cows ever moooed and the first monkeys ever climbed! Before Adam and Even took their first walk in the Garden of Eden, God had a plan for Christmas.

From the beginning of time, God had a plan to save his children. That plan was Jesus!

Jesus Calling®: The Story of Christmas is a durable board book that will hold up for even the most active families. Curl up with your little ones around the Christmas tree with Jesus Calling®: The Story of Christmas.

My Review:
 The precious story of Christmas is one to be retold again and again for generations. The story of our Savior's birth could never grow old. He is just as relevant today as He was 3000 years ago. This book is so beautiful. I loved the illustration and the general setup of the book. Each page has a Bible verse relation to what is being said on the page and the author places a a sentence or two on each page relation to the story.

 Jesus Calling:The Story of Christmas is a great way to put the emphasis for Christmas on where it needs to be but to also teach our children that Christmas is about something bigger than ourselves. The book is a great way to reconnect with your children and teach them what Christmas is all about.

My Review:
 This is a great product for your children, grandchildren or really any children that you know and love. Our children are always sending Santa a letter or leaving him milk and cookies on Christmas eve, but now is Santa's chance to send them something special.

 The process was pretty simple and I was actually surprised at how seamless it actually was to order this for my youngest son. I was able to review the silver package which includes several neat things. A personalized letter, a nice list certificate, Santa's flight plan for the big day, and a photo of Santa, himself. The letter come directly from the North Pole according to the address label. The envelope was big and fancy.

 I really love the fact that you get to choose what type or style letter you would like. We are a Christian church going family so I was able to pick a religious style and it worked great. There are several different styles to choose from. If you have a child that still believes this is a precious gift to them. They are several packages available in different price ranges so these make great, affordable gifts. Look below for some savings to get you started. Also view the video below to learn more.

My Review:
 This game is so much fun! But as an adult I have to say that I wasn't able to play much because I laughed so hard, I almost wet my pants. As kid in the 90's it was fun to reminisce with my children. So for those of you that aren't familiar with this game I will explain the jist of it. You divide into teams of two players. One is the reader and one is the interpreter. The reader will place a mouthpiece in their mouth.

After the mouthpiece is placed in his or her mouth the interpreter tries to decipher what the reader is saying if he is correct one point is rewarded. They are more difficult cards included which award more points. Each game goes four rounds, the team with the most points after four rounds wins the game.

 So not only will you receive these cool colored mouthpieces you also receive a walk down memory lane with every pop culture and fashion trend popular in the 90's is brought to mind. I remembered a lot of these events while playing with the kiddos. It was so much fun explain The Blair Witch Project or who Patti Mayonnaise was.

 In our family we work a lot. So family time is usually made up for around the different holidays of the year. We really like to play board games during this time among other things. It is really fun and gives us a chance to reconnect with family and disconnect from the outside world.

 So I encourage use the holidays as a way to reconnect with your family. Gather around with some snacks and the fam and make an afternoon of it. It makes you laugh until your sides hurt and your family will love it. This game is family friendly and safe for children which I am always concerned with. A fantastic idea to have some family fun.
