NEGU!!! What is that you may ask?

Good morning, Everyone!  I pray that you are having a wonderful start to your day.  I received this book to read and to give my honest review.  I was not requested to give a certain kind of review.  I will say that this book really pulled at many of my heart strings.  I could really relate to this in many ways.  I have to say our story kind of happened in the same way.  I was notified by our school nurse that she had some concerns about our son and how easily he was breaking bones.  I spoke with her. She and I came to the point that we needed to ask our son's physician about how easily he was breaking bones. We asked for a vitamin D level and for a full bone scan.  His physician ordered the full panel and bone scan.  We learned that he has Osteogenesis Imperfecta. Then we had to determine the type he has. He has type one.  Before we could really come to terms with this and determine our plan for treatment we were called to come to the hospital for infusions.  This was very overwhelming.   I must say that the challenges this family faced and those of us with medical challenges like this are grateful for the support of others. Through this journey we had an unexpected turn in the journey to getting the right balance for treatment with our son.  While at his appointment the doctor pointed out that his eyes were blue, not just in color, but the whites were blue.  This is one of the first signs that are listed for Osteogenesis. The fun personality of our son comes through as he says "My Mama's eyes are blue like mine." His doctor looked and sure enough he agreed; suggested that I be tested as well.  I was and I too have Osteogenesis Imperfecta type 1. This journey we are doing together and we have our special time when we have to go for his infusions.  Before I close, please take the time to get this book and enjoy the read.  I will continue by saying we were blessed to receive a joy jar for our son at his treatment. He was very happy with the things inside; it gave him more courage to go through this and to remember Never Ever Give Up!
Grace & Peace,

God's Weigh!!! Not my Weigh!!!



I was given this book by BookLook to review.  I want to express my opinion through my review.  I really enjoyed this book. I have always wanted to lead a healthy lifestyle.  I have tried other types of methods of getting healthy, but then this book was offered for review.  I thought I'd like the book.  I really did and I like that God tells us what we need to do to maintain our weight. He tells us what to eat and when to eat it.  I knew that this was the book for me to read.  I like the layout in the back of the book for healthy eating and tips given.

I take health very seriously because you never know when it can take a turn and you have to deal with something serious.  I have experienced this in these recent years. I would like to recommend this book to you to read and enjoy.  I learned that through reading this book that I have learned to follow the lead of  the Holy Spirit and focus on Jesus as I eat my meals.  I hope that you take the time to look into this book and take a read.  Thanks for stopping by and taking time to read.

Grace & Peace,

New Spirit-Filled Life Bible Review



 Hi Everyone!!!! Hope you all are having a wonderful day.  I have been having a great morning with my family.
 I have been given the opportunity to review this Bible. We as a family love to read.  We love to read the Bible together.  When this came available I had to get it. Then the little bonuses throughout the Bible was even better.  Our son loves to read.  He really loved it when a box would appear on the page.  He was so excited to be the one to read them.  I find we use this Bible more when we are home.  I do take it to church  with me as well.  I found this to be a great tool for study and for general reading.  I found that the features contained within the Bible work together for your enjoyment while reading.  I have recommended this Bible to friends of mine.

I hope you too will check this Bible out and read with family and friends as well.  I have been able to find this in our local Christian book store as well as online too.  I am glad that I had the opportunity to get my hands on this Bible. I am always looking for a new book to read.  I especially love it when a Bible comes available.  I have passed some on and others I have kept in my collection to read when I want or study with as I want. Happy Reading!!!
Grace & Peace,

Featured Author!!! Judi!!!! Congratulations, Judi!


 Judi
It is Well with My Soul

 Good Sunday Afternoon to you!!! Hope everyone has been having a wonderful weekend.  I have been enjoying family time and time with friends.  I would like to introduce you all as my readers to Judi.  She is a great person a wonderful woman of God.  She has a big heart and love for her friends and family.  I know she would be blessed for you to receive and read a copy of her book.  I have had the privilege to speak with her about the book and she had so much to say about it.  I couldn't wait to get my copy and read it for myself.


I must say that I have been blessed in so many ways after reading this book.  I was reading the other day and read something that struck me to think about the friendships that I have and to be a bit more aware about them.  I had one with someone that if something came up I would contact them, then talk to them.  Later I would hear things and or things I said would be used against me when I was only talking to them to get through what was going on.  I didn't appreciate this in this person to use what I said in confidence to come back at me to be used against me or for them to use partially what I said and not hear the rest and still use it against me.  This friendship I have since ended.  There was another one that I found that these same things were coming into play.  The person would only half listen to what I said then make accusations and tell me how I am feeling and what I am saying.  I would be saying something totally unrelated to what they were accusing me of.  I found a very similar story in the book written by Judi.  In which she gives this bit of advice to think about as you engage in your friendships so you don't have to endure some of the things I have had to endure in some of my friendships.  Here is a quote from her book "..If you notice, you are the initiator of the contact with this "friend." Once they establish themselves as a listener, they have ensnared you... and you go to them; you seek them out for your next "fix." If you can commit to severing this contact (or test it for a few weeks) you will notice many aspects of your life improve; your work environment, other relationships, your financial decisions, your communication with others, your love relationship/marriage."   I gave you this part because I noticed when these "friends/contacts" were part of my life I found that my marriage was effected by these because it would cause "intense fellowship"(arguments )between myself and my husband when we weren't having "intense fellowship." I found our relationship was strained when these "friends/contacts" were part of my life; when I made changes things in our relationship became peaceful and settled.  I was thankful and glad that I had the insight to see this.

I do want to say that the book has been a joy to read.  It is written on a very personal level almost bordering on a "how to" how you say??? Well, in the aspect of discovering how God can change our mindset, our attitude and our approach to situations in our lives.  I do know through my personal relationship with God I have a different perspective on things in my life. The challenges that I face daily just in myself and with our special needs child.  I love the challenges and I love the peace that God can only give.

I encourage you to get a copy of this book you will be blessed greatly in reading it.  This is not a chapter book like other books.  There is a subject that is presented and it is written within two to three pages then you are on to the next subject.  I highly recommend this book.   I want to thank the author, Judi for allowing me to present her as a Featured Author on my website.  Judi, I thank you! May you be blessed with your book. I look forward to your next and I will be sure to feature you again if you will allow me to.

For you my readers I will be making a page for Judi where you can get a copy of her book from here. I will link  you over to where her book is being sold.  If you have questions for Judi, you may use my contact page and I will direct these to Judi.  Thank you again for stopping by!  May you have a great week ahead!!! Happy Crafting everyone!!!!!

*****If you would like to purchase a copy of the book, please click on the picture of the book.  Thank you so much!*****

Grace & Peace,
