Duck Commander Devotions for Kids by Korie Robertson & Chrys Howard

Duck Commander Devotions for KidsBy Korie Robertson & Chrys Howard  Published by Thomas Nelson

The first devotional for kids by the Robertson family of Duck Dynasty fame!

With the Robertson clan's flair for down-home wisdom and their wholesome family values, this devotional reveals the heart and faith of this much-loved family from A&E's hit show Duck Dynasty. The more than 6-million moms, dads, and little ones who are loyal fans of the Duck Dynasty family will love this collection of inspirational messages.
Each devotion contains a brief message, an anecdotal story from America's favorite family, a passage from Scripture, a prayer, and a Duck Commander in Action. Not only are the messages motivational, but they are also mixed with the characters' trademark wit and revelations from their personal faith journeys. An ideal companion product for Duck Dynasty fans, outdoor enthusiasts, and those who want to grow in their faith, Duck Commander Devotions for Kids is certain to inspire little ones in their faith journey.

One of our favorite shows is Duck Dynasty. The guys are hilarious and the women are pretty great to.

The show is a great show for families. The Robertson's have adult books out so I was excited to see a book for kids written by Korie Robertson, Willie's wife & Chrys Howard.

Each devotion is a event that happened to someone in the family. they use there stories to relate to God's word. Each page contains a scripture, story, & Duck Commander in Action section.

The book is full of great stories and illustrations. I'd say this book is for kids ages 8 & up. My daughter loves reading this before bed during her reading time. She likes that it has a build in book mark!

DrainWig Review & Giveaway Keep those Drains Clog Free

As someone who looses alot of hair this new product is great for our household. I swear my hair falls out like crazy, our drain is always full of my hair. With DrainWig I can now access the hair and keep the drain free of all my hair!

There is a little flower with little tiny whiskers attached on a chain. To use you slip the chain into the drain and the flower sits on top of the drain. Once the hair falls into the drain it catches on the whiskers making it easy to remove. You can leave DrainWig in for 2-4 months. Pull it out and remove the hair.

Mine has been in my drain since the day I got it and has already caught lots of my hair! 


I also received a DrainWig for bath drains, I only have a shower drain but the bath drain works just about the same, It has a suction cup that attaches to the tub and you can still use the tub stopper.

This product saves alot of hassle and doesn't involve harmful chemicals.

 Despite the negative temps we headed out to Monster Jam this weekend at The Quicken Loans Arena.

I have attended Monster Jam for years and this year it was surprisingly different.

The show included the big trucks, speedsters & atvs. Normally you just the drivers in the trucks so it was alot different than what I have seen before.

They were judged on racing, donuts, freestyle, & more in all three vehicles!

My favorite truck of the night was probably Scooby Doo, she was an amazing driver and handled her truck well. Although she didn't win she did a wonderful job! The winner of the night was Max-D.

We had a great time & can't wait til next year!!

Drivers of the night were         
    Max-D: Morgan Kane
·         Blue Thunder®: Dalton Millican
·         Grave Digger®: Colton Eichelberger
·         Monster Energy: Coty Saucier

You Can't Sit With Us An Honest Look at Bullying from the Victim By Nancy Rue

You Can't Sit With Us 
An Honest Look at Bullying from the Victim 
By Nancy Rue 


Bullying doesn't end in the hallway anymore-with a smartphone or tablet, it can happen anywhere.
According to the Ambassadors 4 Kids Club, one out of every four students is bullied-and 85% of these situations never receive intervention. Parents, students, and teachers alike have amped up discussions on how to solve the bullying problem for a networked generation of kids.
Written by bestselling author, Nancy Rue, each book in the Mean Girl Makeover trilogy focuses on a different character's point of view: the bully, the victim, and the bystander. The books, based on Scripture, show solid biblical solutions to the bullying problem set in a story for tween girls.
You Can't Sit With Us tells the story of Ginger Hollingberry, a new sixth grader at Gold Country Middle School. Ginger has been the brunt of teasing and taunting from the queen bee of GCMS, Kylie Steppe, and her so-called Wolf Pack. Kylie and the Pack favor a new and especially hurtful medium of taunting: social networking. What follows is a candid look into the growing world of cruel cyberbullying, showing kids that bullying doesn't always end at school-it can now follow you even into your home and torture 24 hours a day.

As soon as I saw this book I knew I had to get it for my daughter to review. She is 8 years old and was a victim of bullying. Last year at her previous school she was bullied constantly, she has had her face slammed into a bus seat, spit on, & such. The school never handled the situation so we moved to another school district. She has only had once incident at her new school since last year and she handled the situation on her, a boy was always stabbing her with a pencil and one day she decided to stick up for herself and in the middle of class while it was happening she stood up took his pencil and threw it away.

This book shares that bullying just doesn't happen and end at school. It can happen right in your home n social network. Although Hailee is not allowed on social media and wont be for awhile it still teaches her that things like that can happen. Kids her age all over have Facebook & such and I know it can be monitored but most parents are not around 100% of the time. 

This is a wonderful book for any young child. My daughter really likes reading it and likes that the girl in the book is like her in ways.
