Can't Wait Willow- Giveaway!



Can I just say, I LOVE THIS BOOK!!

Oh, how my kids needed to hear this! Every time my kids get a dollar they want to blow it on junk! I try to tell them these little trinkets they waste their money on will only end up in the garbage by the end of the week but time and time again they never listen. So, you can imagine the joy I had when I sat down to read this book about a little girl who just couldn't say no to anything!

This is a beautifully illustrated hard back book with a wonderful message to children and parents alike! This book will definitely be a book that we read and read again! Even better news, this is the first in the series and I can not wait to get the rest!

The first book in the series:  Can't-Wait Willow!
Willow is so excited that the Over-the-Top Circus has finally come to town! The only problem is, that when left to her own devices, she can’t say “no” to some good things. On the way to the show, she is distracted by enticing treats and fun that she just can’t turn down. Willow arrives late and is sad to find that, not only has she has run out of time, but money, and she won’t be able to enjoy the pink cotton candy she’s been dreaming of. Willow is given valuable advice and a second chance and is ultimately taught the lesson that sometimes in life you have to say “no” to good things to end up with something great!

Ring The Bell- Giveaway!


Friends, this is definitely a movie you do not want to miss! Bethany, my 15 year old, and I watched this movie last night and absolutely loved it! It has such a powerful message and I must admit it brought chills to me not once but twice! Very heart warming and a bonus you get to watch Casting Crowns perform!!
 

About Ring the Bell:Ring The Bell shares the story of a slick, big city sports agent Rob Decker who seems to have it all. But on his latest mission to sign a high school baseball superstar, Rob becomes stranded in a small town where the simplicity of life—and the faith of the people—stand in stark contrast to his own fast-paced, win-at-all-costs mindset. Torn between these two worlds, will Rob have the courage to let faith transform his life? This heartwarming story of redemption is sure to entertain and inspire the whole family.

Ring The Bell features a host of well-known Christian music artists, such as Mark Hall along with his band Casting Crowns, Steven Curtis Chapman, and Matthew West, all who play a role in this inspirational drama. Several former and current Major League Baseball all-stars are also featured in the film: ESPN analysts John Kruk and Rick Sutcliffe (a former Cy Young Award winner), along with Ben Zobrist.
This family-friendly movie was produced by Mark Miller, Beach Street Records' founder and Casting Crowns’ producer. Miller, who is also the lead singer and founder of country music group Sawyer Brown, co-wrote the script with Thomas Weber and Weber directed the production.
