Loving God and Country with Rhett Walker Band’s New Hit Album: Here’s To The Ones



I’m always thankful to have been born in and be living in the USA, and to have the freedom to worship God and love my family freely. There are so many things to be thankful for, and a multitude of special people in our life and in our country who make life really count.  Wouldn’t you agree?

Passing through life with each year of trial or favor, there are those we each may have developed friendships with that can last a lifetime. People of strength, honor, dignity, and most of all incredible faith and love. At the top of this list should always be the importance and unforgettable love from our devoted spouse, our children, and extended family. We admire and applaud the tireless efforts of the people who sacrifice their time and energy on our behalf – not because we asked, just because that’s what they do and who they are.

This kind of faith, dedication and sacrifice is saluted and honored through the refreshing sounds and heart-felt lyrics I recently heard by Rhett Walker Band in their newest album called “Here’s To The Ones”. This Southern Rock band brings Christian lyrics and love for God and country into the mix in this new fabulous collection of hit Southern Rock tunes!


One of the many things I delight in with Christian music is finding a group or artist that can really relate to their fans through their lyrics. The words in the music of Rhett Walker Band’s last album “When Mercy Finds Me” was so amazing – I wanted to share it with everyone! Catch a glimpse of that incredible album here:

Now, Rhett Walker Band has released another enriching selection of songs in their second album “Here’s To The Ones” that includes the radio single “Amazed,” as well as “Love Like Jesus” and “Better Part of Me,” which takes an honest look at the ins and outs of marriage and supporting one’s spouse.  It is obvious they spent a great deal of time prayerfully perfecting these musical scores and lyric choices before sharing with their audience. Rhett Walker Band’s reach with this album is beyond just a small niche group of listeners. It covers an audience for both young and old. I was so tickled while playing this new “Here’s To The Ones” album to have my neighbor’s son stop by and exclaim, “Oh cool! That sounds like Rhett Walker band! I have a hat signed by all of them back in my room. It’s one of my favorite things.” He actually thought it was neat that I was listening to them and enjoyed their music too.

It seems Rhett Walker bands “cool” sounding music appeals to teens and beyond! Their tunes are catchy and enjoyable leaving the listener smiling and entertained and most likely humming or singing the tunes for the remainder of the day. Best part is though – the words they leave in their listener’s hearts are family friendly and real Christ-sharing lyrics. That’s definitely what I like my family getting stuck in their head! :)

Here’s To The Ones by Rhett Walker Band is an album I plan to share with the special people in my life that I want to thank for all they do and remind them that their faith, courage and passion to keep on going in this life is admirable and noticed. It would be a perfect gift when reminding them to listen to the title song, “Here’s To The Ones” and let them know just how special they are to not just me, but to all those whose lives they touch.

Want a way to be a blessing to the special people in your life? Try this idea! You can purchase a copy of the Rhett Walker Band album, “Here’s To The Ones” Today and share it with a friend. Just click on the image below. (affiliate link)

I want YOU to listen to the title song, Here’s To The Ones” also,  because YOU mean that much to me too. “The anthemic title track, “Here’s to the Ones” salutes and honors those who work hard to support their families and who stand up for their faith. “

Thanks for being such amazing fans and readers and standing your ground to live for Jesus and love your family and country! Keep up the faith and hope! You’re awesome!

Powerful and Uplifting! Majestic CD by Kim Collingsworth #Review #Giveaway



Majestic cd

by Kim Collingsworth

Enjoy the sweet sounds of one of Gospel Music’s most decorated instrumentalists, Kim Collingsworth, who won many awards including Instrumentalist of the Year (Singing News Fan Awards). She performs regularly on the Gaither Homecoming Tour & Gaither video series.
 It was my great pleasure to review this fantastic cd titled “Majestic” by Kim Collingsworth. Special thanks to Family Christian Stores for providing a copy in exchange for an honest review.

I have always enjoyed the rich, fresh sounds of instrumental or piano music ever since I was young. My parents used to play a variety of music in the car during family road trips and we enjoyed many fond memories together as we adventured and listened to the soothing and uplifting music. In recent years, my own teen son took up piano and keyboard, and to my delight he has blossomed into a wonderful musician with a good ear for music. My love for piano sounds has kept me eager to hear him play over and over as he continues to branch out and starts to experiment and write his own original scores.

When I discovered I would get to review this amazing cd by Kim Collingsworth, I was tickled to be able to share such a super example of piano artistry and excellence with my son and his developing talent in piano and keyboard! We enjoyed listening to it together many times as my son would point out what chords were being played during certain sections of the music. He is happy to know there are so many gifted pianists that can create music that is lively and fun for entire families to enjoy listening to together.


His new goal is to start writing pieces of his own that model the great sounds and high quality he has heard here today. Thanks to Kim Collingsworth, Tim Parton,  Stan Whitmore and the producers for giving my son a super inspiration to keep moving forward with his gifts in piano and keyboard. This Majestic cd is absolutely awesome!


“The choice of a live recording was an easy one for Kim Collingsworth, because she considers it such an encouraging event to share. “The audience is invigorating! I love the excitement and spontaneity that a crowd brings, and the emotion from a live audience.” Long-time and new fans alike will appreciate the project’s great value (more than 15 selections), and are sure to experience artistry at a new level as they enjoy the unforgettable evening captured on this new “Majestic” live CD.”

Have you ever wondered who God truly created you to be? Discover your true inner self with some great insight and reflection in Stasi Eldredge’s latest book, “Becoming Myself: Embracing God’s Dream of You”.

Based on a multitude of reflective moments including battling food addictions, contemplating her self worth, measuring the impact of a mother’s role in a woman’s life, and adding in some relevant stories from friends – Stasi Eldredge’s book, “Becoming Myself: Embracing God’s Dream of You” is a wonderful look into the heart of a loving God that dares us to live our lives believing in ourselves – His amazing creation – just the way He planned us to live. It’s emotional, thought-provoking, curious, and in many ways just what the doctor ordered for anyone desiring to see themselves for the beautiful inner worth God instilled inside them. Encouraging to many – but especially to those who may battle weight issues, this book gives a lot of helpful points to bless readers into moving forward towards a better future filled with hope.

Check out this super video clip from the author sharing about the book:

Build-A-Bear Workshop Florida Mall: Disney Princess Palace Pets – Rapunzel’s Cat



My daughter is 7 years old and is completely in love with stuffed animals of all sorts. She was overjoyed to have the opportunity to review one of the Disney Princess Palace Pets from Build-A-Bear Workshop in exchange for our honest review! Special thanks to Build-A-Bear and Smiley 360 for making this a possibility!


What is Build-A-Bear Workshop? It’s a totally kid-friendly place with all sorts of hands on stations to be an active part in the choosing and stuffing process of creating your very own stuffed pet! There are sound chips and scents you can pick from to include inside your pet,  plus lots of cool clothing and accessories to decorate them with. My daughter loves to play house and dress up with her dolls and stuffed animals, and finds the bathing center and dress up area for the Build-A-Bear pets to be tons of fun! Once the pet is stuffed and ready to get dressed, it’s on to the dress up fun!


My daughter chose the Rapunzel Princess Palace Pet shaped like a yellow cat. It has long hair just like Rapunzel and can be dressed like her or you can choose other outfits or accessories for her to wear. The Disney Princess Palace Pets require a unique size to fit them so the clothing options are limited, but still extremely cute!



During our visit my daughter had a super nice associate helping her with the Disney Princess Palace Pet she chose by giving suggestions we hadn’t even thought of for clothing and accessories, hair style tips for the pet’s Rapunzel hair, and pointing out sale items and freebies. We had fun adding additional accessories like sunglasses, a tiara and a hip little purse too. We loved this extra attention to detail from the sales associate and really appreciate Build-A-Bear’s set up and commitment to excellence in service for their customers.


My daughter was giggly and content the entire time we spent at Build-A-Bear. Even now every day at home, my daughter continues to enjoy playing with her adorable Disney Princess Palace Pet – which she named “Summer”. These pets are large enough for kids to hug at night for bedtime. Summer has become her favorite “bedtime buddy” to sleep with each night. She talks to it like it’s a real friend, and loves to change the clothes, style the hair with a brush or pony tail holders, and keeps pressing the button inside to make her talk. Even my little guy likes to hear the sounds!


Overall, it was a splendid experience at Build-A-Bear workshop and we wouldn’t have missed it for the world. We plan to return this week to give my youngest (age 3) his first experience with Build-A-Bear workshop to create his very own Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle! Be on the look out for our next post update from Florida Mall’s Build-A-Bear Workshop in Orlando!

You can follow Build-A-Bear Workshop on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.

Thanks for visiting! Have you ever been to Build-A-Bear Workshop? Share with me in the comments about which pet your child picked out or how you enjoyed your experience. I look forward to hearing from you.

Overrated by author Eugene Cho – Develop True Passion To Make A Difference




*Special Thanks to Family Christian for providing a copy in exchange for an honest review plus a copy to giveaway to my readers!

Today’s society is in love with the idea of heroes. I love the concept too! Yet, all too often we miss our own personal opportunities to be heroes to the people that matter in our daily lives – in our homes, our communities, and in our church. It baffles my mind sometimes to think of how many ways we think about and talk about wanting to go through life trying to make a difference – finding a purpose, and yet many never end up doing anything about it at all. Wouldn’t it just be the coolest to actually see our thoughts and heart-felt intentions get put into action? Being the hands and feet of Jesus is not as hard as it sounds – God just asks us to take a step of faith and try. He doesn’t expect us to have some amazing skills to use to serve – He just wants our able and willing bodies, hearts and souls to prepare to take on any task He brings our way. Wouldn’t you love to serve among God’s people on a regular basis – seeing REAL change at work?

All too often you hear people say that lending a hand for a charity, or helping out at the church, or giving to the poor sounds good – and they would like to help, but then they don’t act upon it. I challenge you today to make an effort to read Eugene Cho’s book: Overrated. I believe there is a lot of good content here that needs to be shared with many. The more people who start with who they are inside and make a decision to take a serious look at how they can personally impact change in this world for good – the more we can truly accomplish as the hands and feet of Jesus as part of the body of Christ. I look forward to hearing your thoughts on his book.

Will You Move From Talk To Action?


“Many people today talk about justice but are they living justly? They want to change the world but are they being changed themselves?
Eugene Cho has a confession: “I like to talk about changing the world but I don’t really like to do what it takes.” If this is true of the man who founded the One Day’s Wages global antipoverty movement, then what must it take to act on one’s ideals? Cho does not doubt the sincerity of those who want to change the world. But he fears that today’s wealth of resources and opportunities could be creating “the most overrated generation in history. We have access to so much but end up doing so little.”
He came to see that he, too, was overrated. As Christians, Cho writes, “our calling is not simply to change the world but to be changed ourselves.” In “Overrated,” Cho shows that it is possible to move from talk to action.”
Softcover book. 240 pages. Retails for $15.99. You can purchase Eugene Cho’s book “Overrated” Here.



Prize: One winner will receive a copy of Eugene Cho’s new book, “Overrated”.  $15.99 value.

Veggie Tales New DVD: Beauty and the Beet #Review and #Giveaway



A big thank you to Flyby Promotions and Veggie Tales for providing a copy of the movie in exchange for an honest review.

A Lesson In Unconditional Love

Beauty and the Beet is the newest DVD available from the beloved children’s animated story creators – Veggie Tales! My two kids were SO EXCITED about this particular DVD coming out as we are big Disney fans, and love the Beauty and the Beast story. To no surprise, we were very pleased with the outcome of Veggie Tales version of the story called Beauty and the Beet! Veggie Tales always does a superb job of finding just the right amount of witty humor to entertain the adults watching with their kids as well as having funny, silly, crazy, laugh-out-loud moments to thrill and delight the kids. We love all the Veggie Tales shows and this one is going to be a new favorite.

Our desire to instill morals and values in our children’s hearts and minds comes with careful choosing in what we let them  read, listen to, and watch on TV. If you are as cautious as we are, you will be more than happy to know that we give the Veggie Tales Beauty and the Beet (and every Veggie Tales film for that matter) a huge thumbs up for family friendliness and helpful life lessons in the show. Probably our favorite parts of this film were the silly song with Larry (about Mac N Cheese!) and the adorable songs in this film. The songs “Show You Love” and “Deck the Halls” song are very contagious and my kids hit the replay button on the sing-a-long songs at the end over and over to sing and dance along with them. The cd to accompany this film will be releasing soon too and we will be sure to grab one for our listening (and sing-a-long) enjoyment.


 Beauty and the Beet Details:

(Sept. 11, 2014) – Take the timeless and enchanting story of “Beauty and the Beast,” toss with the unique flavors of VeggieTales and blend in the sweet voice of country music superstar Kellie Pickler – and the result is BEAUTY AND THE BEET, a brand-new VeggieTales musical that premieres Oct. 14 exclusively on DVD and digital download.Pickler (American Idol, Dancing With the Stars) brings her unmistakable voice to the role of Mirabelle, a sweet-potato singer whose family band is on the brink of superstardom. BEAUTY AND THE BEET blends the irresistible charm and appeal of VeggieTales with a heartfelt message about the importance of unconditional love.A BEAUTY AND THE BEET companion CD, featuring 10 brand-new songs – including an all-veggie rendition of the classic Christmas carol Deck the Halls – will also be available in stores and on iTunes to coincide with the release of the movie on Oct. 14.”All my nieces and nephews grew up with VeggieTales, and when they heard I was going to be in a VeggieTales movie, I immediately became the coolest aunt in the world!” said Pickler, who joins the VeggieTales cast on eight of the 10 songs on the BEAUTY AND THE BEET soundtrack. “Mirabelle may be a vegetable, but she’s beautiful through and through, especially her ability to show grace and compassion for everyone she meets. “Mirabelle’s kindness extends to Finnegan J. Beet, the bitter and lonely owner of a rundown mountaintop resort where Mirabelle’s family breaks down en route to their biggest concert ever. Matching the Beet’s heartless actions with her own genuinely sweet nature, Mirabelle proves that just as God loves us all whether we deserve it or not, unconditional love is its own reward.In addition to Mirabelle and Mr. Beet, the zesty supporting cast includes Bob the Tomato, Larry the Cucumber, Jimmy the Gourd, the French Peas and a host of other favorite veggies.

Both the DVD and the CD also include Mac and Cheese, a giddy new “Silly Songs With Larry” segment in which Larry the Cucumber reveals the surprising and heretofore untold history of his family’s unexpected contributions to Italian cuisine.

BEAUTY AND THE BEET is just the start ofVeggieTales In the House the fun in store this fall for VeggieTales fans, because Bob the Tomato, Larry the Cucumber and their friends will also star in a brand-new Netflix original series, VeggieTales In the House, which premieres Thanksgiving weekend exclusively on the streaming platform.

Kellie Pickler appears on the BEAUTY AND THE BEET soundtrack album courtesy of Black River Entertainment. She grew up immersed in the country life of small town Albemarle, N.C. At age 19, she gained fame as a contestant on “American Idol,” followed by a move to Nashville where she has recorded four critically acclaimed albums (Small Town Girl, Kellie Pickler, 100 Proof, and her current album The Woman I Am), performed for fans around the world, and made countless television appearances, including a 2013 win on Dancing with the Stars.

Additional Beauty and the Beet Resources 


We are sure you’re family will love this delightful new DVD from Veggie Tales! Beauty and the Beet shares such cute musical songs that sound 50′s era …it reminds me of the movie That Thing You Do. Just precious how they make it all so much fun for the kids to watch and sing-a-long to. My daughter has been singing the “Show You Love” song from Beauty and the Beet all day – practicing to sing it for her brother and father when they get home today! Too cute! Your kids should enjoy Beauty and the Beet too. You can purchase it today by clicking on the image below. (affiliate link)

Review and Giveaway of the Highly Anticipated Book: A.D. 30 by TED DEKKER


Ted Dekker, A.D. 30: PreBuy now at FamilyChristian.com

Special thanks to Family Christian Stores for the opportunity to review a pre-release copy of Ted Dekker’s new book: A.D. 30.

This is a really exciting moment for me – to be able to share with all of you this highly anticipated new book from Ted Dekker releasing on October 28! A student from the school my husband teaches at is a huge Ted Dekker fan. When she heard I was getting to review his newest book, she told my hubby how lucky I was. She can’t wait for the release! I’m happy to tell you that her enthusiasm will not be let down.

A.D. 30 is going to surprise you. The very heart of its character development and attention to detail in the story all draw you closer to the surprise guest that appears. I’m sure you can guess who it is just based on the title! A.D. 30 will make you embrace every moment of each page. Filled to the brim in Biblical facts and laced with emotional turmoil, courage and strength of heart  – A.D. 30 is going to capture your attention and not let go. You won’t want to put the book down!

A.D. 30 recreates a real impression of what life was like in Biblical times while helping you see it through the eyes of a woman. Keep in mind that this story is taking place during a time period when a women’s opinion was not valued, so the events that unfold are sometimes intense and keep you on the edge of your seat.



“In A.D. 30, you’ll step back into the year of our Lord, and dive head first into a war that is raging between kingdoms on the earth and in the heart.

The outcast daughter of one of the most powerful Bedouin sheikhs in Arabia, Maviah is called on to protect the very people who rejected her. When their enemies launch a sudden attack with devastating consequences, Maviah escapes with the help of two of her father’s warriors–Saba who speaks more with is sword than his voice and Judah, a Jew who comes from a tribe that can read the stars.

From there, Maviah must secure an unlikely alliance with King Herod of the Jews. It would be a journey filled with great danger. If they can even survive the vast trek across the desert, they will enter into a brutal world run by kings and emperors.

On the way, Maviah crosses paths unexpectedly with another man. An enigmatic teacher who speaks of a way in this life which offers greater power than any kingdom. His name is Yeshua, and his words turn everything known on its head. Though following him may present even greater danger, his may be the only way for Maviah to save her people–and herself.”
