December’s DVD and Book Product Roundup 2017

I get products sent to me daily to try out. I unfortunately don’t have time to do a post for each item that I get to review. So I want to make sure these items get seen and learned about. The only other solution I could see to do is to do a December’s DVD and Book Product Roundup 2017 on the products I like and want my readers to know about. I hope you enjoy these as much as I and my other reviewers did.

Sean Weathers is a hotshot dirt track racer with a thriving career, adoring fans, and a loving daughter. Jack Reed is a successful businessman working to reconnect with his estranged son. When a single mistake results in tragedy, it leads the paths of these two men to cross, and an unexpected bond forms between them. Together, they must work through the painful journey toward healing. But as secrets are brought to light that threaten to destroy all hope, can they put their faith in God and discover a way toward redemption? Experience this story about the power of faith, love, and the true freedom of forgiveness.

Veronica and the Volcano by Geoffrey Cook is an exciting adventure story for grades 3 – 5 about a brave, curious young girl named Veronica, who lives on the side of a volcano. Eruptions are a part of life, as she watches from the protective shields of her home or from her family’s well-equipped Lava Car.

When Veronica leaves on a quest to find rare white volcano pearls on the far side of Mount Mystery, she leads her father, her best friend Maddy, and her friend’s dad, the blustering Captain John, into a series of incredible adventures. But when the colossal volcano erupts, fears wins an election, and Veronica must square off against a fear-mongering villain: the Man-in-White.

Cook’s story blends science with science fiction, straddling the world of the believable and fantastical and combining the latest earth science with incredible action. While writing, Cook extensively researched volcanoes, even visiting one. The most important volcanoes in the book are all based on real-world volcanoes like Krakatoa, Crater Lake, Mt. Pelee, and Tambora.

In Veronica and the Volcano kids will root for Veronica every step of the way, and while they are cheering her on, they’ll learn as well. Complementing STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) curriculum, the book is filled with educational elements about volcanoes, geysers, caves, and the wonders of physics. A glossary in the back provides an at-a-glance list of the facts in the book.

Artist Gabrielle Shamsey lavishly illustrated the book with many dozens of wonder-filled and vivid images of volcanoes, caves, eruptions, and more.

Veronica and the Volcano is perfect for volcano lovers of all ages.

Pizza With Jesus (No Black Olives) chronicles one couple’s faith journey through the cumulative effects of compound losses, suffering and grief. One found his reward. The other found her way back to God. Their journey is a lesson in obedience, patience and trust in the Lord. It spans all types of loss and grief, not only grief in response to death. It is a testimony to the gentle promise that only faith in a loving God offers. It is a story of hope, renewed faith and redemption.

Loss and grief are universal. Our responses to them are as unique as a fingerprint. Pizza With Jesus is a faith journey – a story of renewed hope, redemption and finding the way back to God who waits patiently for us to come to Him and to trust in Him. Sometimes it is only through profound suffering that we finally rest and place our complete trust in Him. When we come through on the other side of our suffering and grief and realize that God was beside us through it all, our hope and our faith in Him are hardened beyond all fracture – even when we feel lost and doubtful along the way.

Pizza With Jesus is a very deep and personal experience with grief and its cumulative effects. It delivers a message of hope that there is life on the other side of grief, no matter how dark and lonesome it feels along the way. It offers a lantern and a lifeline through pain and grief back to our loving Father’s side – where we belong and where we ultimately hope to be

In our fast-paced world consisting of ever-changing technology and evolving social norms, parents are finding the traditional challenges of raising well-adjusted, self-confident and socially responsible children ever more difficult. As parents, we struggle with when to grant certain permissions and when to have difficult conversations. We often avoid such decisions, waiting until an external event forces the conversation or too many kids at school have been granted the same permission. To meet these challenges, parents need a framework that can adjust to the development needs of each child, the values of each community and the means of each family. The Birthday Rules provides that framework.

The Birthday Rules provides a fun and flexible framework of an annual review process combined with a structure for increasing permissions, responsibilities and conversations. We suggest using a child’s birthday as not only a time to celebrate, but also as an excellent opportunity to have important conversations, grant desired permissions and explain the responsibilities that go along with those permissions.

The Birthday Rules offers a structure to help with one of the most important tasks parents have—creating a safe environment to communicate and demonstrate unconditional love.

New grad student Katie Russell hears a violent struggle in a student’s apartment above her own. Upstairs, she discovers Ava’s naked and unconscious body lying on her bed. After a young man threatens Katie and runs away, she takes Ava to a hospital for an invasive sexual assault exam. Ava’s inexplicable refusal to file a complaint forces Katie to testify in a university hearing, one that results in meaningless sanctions. Outraged, Katie teams with a stalwart retired police detective in a perilous attempt to seek justice and takes a clandestine job within the police department. As she searches for another victim, one willing to testify in court, she confronts issues of Title IX, rape culture, criminal law, and a university administration that prefers sexual assault to remain secret. In the book’s urgent climax, Katie is drawn into the case on a personal level, with more than justice on the line.

It started as a request from Bill Franks’ financial advisor to create a “Statement of Values” letter that he could share with his then-young children. If something happened and he wasn’t around to raise them, what were some of the core values he would like to impart on them once they were old enough to understand?

As Bill began laying out his thoughts, he realized that he had a lot more to say than would fit in a letter. He also realized that many other families might benefit from the same advice he was providing. What started as life lessons he wanted to share just with his children, quickly became an opportunity for other families to discuss and learn together. Written not from the perspective of an expert, but from that of a father giving guidance to his own teens, the book comes at the issues from a different perspective than many others.

This guidebook, written with teens as the intended audience, presents a great foundation for adults to think about and be intentional about sharing their own ethics and principles. With clear examples, timely teen issues, and ‘taking action’ elements with each chapter, it provides many opportunities for parents to begin or continue important conversations with their children. In chapters where parents disagree with Bill’s view, the book still provides a starting point to explain to their children how their views differ.

Laid-back Mateo Marino doesn’t brood about the past or worry about the future. Instead, he lives in the present moment, driving his high-achieving parents crazy. Mateo feels unseen and unappreciated, especially compared to his younger brother, Alex, who is perfect in their eyes. But everything changes when Mateo disappears through a mysterious crack in his bedroom ceiling and finds himself on a planet called Urth, 64,000 light years away. Why was he drawn there? He doesn’t know, but a series of mind-blowing adventures follow, leading him deeper into the mystery and farther from home, where his desperate parents think he’s been abducted and an innocent man is charged with the crime. With the help of an “uppy” named Ideth, Mateo learns that he has an amazing gift called Presence that his parents have overlooked in their zeal to cure his “laziness.” But his gift has a dark side, too, that he discovers all too well when a terrible tragedy threatens to annihilate the very Urthling girl he befriends and feels duty bound to protect. On the surface, Mateo and the Gift of Presence is a lighthearted science fiction adventure story that takes its readers on a romp across the galaxy to a planet with two moons and enormous tides, inhabited by lavender humanoids adapted for life by the sea. But the undercurrent is one of discovery and redemption, where a ten-year old boy, through an unexpected journey, finds a way to escape his parent’s stifling shadow and emerge into a future of his own choosing.

The comic in Shakespeare’s tragedies mockingly swings the far-seen end into full view of its characters, making true the words of the great author. Art imitates life in all its shades of the comic and the tragic―the colors of black, white and the twilight zone of gray.
But “having nothing, nothing can he lose,” says the Bard; go ahead and feel the flow and majesty of the great plays as you engage in the intricacies of the activities.

The world knows Candace Payne as “Chewbacca Mom,” the wife and mother of two from Dallas who captured the hearts of nearly 200 million people around the world with nothing but a toy Chewbacca mask, a smart phone, and infectious laughter.

Candace’s viral moment of simple joy became Facebook Live’s top video. But what the video doesn’t show is Candace’s storied journey of daunting obstacles on the way to the joy-filled life—extreme poverty, past trauma, and struggles with self-worth.

Laugh It Up! tells the rest of the story behind the woman in the mask. Like most of us, Candace has often felt overlooked, undervalued, and insignificant. But she has also discovered the secrets to unshakable joy that no circumstance can take away, and Laugh It Up! will help you discover and experience the same.

Join Candace to discover the gift God has given us all to experience life to the fullest. All you need to do is answer “yes” when joy, whom Candace personifies as a friend, calls you to come and play.

Do you feel tempted to give up on your dreams? Joy stays the course.
Do your knees knock when thinking about the future? Joy hopes for what can be.
Do you feel unseen and unnoticed? Joy is content whether backstage or center stage.
Do you feel crushed under the weight of regret? Joy loves you enough to weep with you, but also enough to help you move on.

When life punches you in the gut, it can be difficult to muster a smile—much less a laugh. But with humor and power, wit and wisdom, Candace lights the way forward to a life that is free indeed.

This revolutionary book about our future is based on the simple idea that, according to the Bible, heaven is not our eternal home–the New Earth is. As Jesus says in the gospel of Matthew, the next chapter of our story begins with “the renewal of all things,” by which he means the earth we love in all its beauty, our own selves, and the things that make for a rich life: music, art, food, laughter and all that we hold dear. Everything shall be renewed “when the world is made new.”

More than anything else, how you envision your future shapes your current experience. If you knew that God was going to restore your life and everything you love any day; if you believed a great and glorious goodness was coming to you–not in a vague heaven but right here on this earth–you would have a hope to see you through anything, an anchor for your soul, “an unbreakable spiritual lifeline, reaching past all appearances right to the very presence of God” (Hebrews 6:19).

Most Christians (most people for that matter) fail to look forward to their future because their view of heaven is vague, religious, and frankly boring. Hope begins when we understand that for the believer nothing is lost. Heaven is not a life in the clouds; it is not endless harp-strumming or worship-singing. Rather, the life we long for, the paradise Adam and Eve knew, is precisely the life that is coming to us. And that life is coming soon.

For American Claire Stewart, joining the French Resistance sounded as romantic as the storylines she hopes will one day grace the novels she wants to write. But when she finds herself stranded on English shores, with five French Jewish children she smuggled across the channel before Nazis stormed Paris, reality feels more akin to fear.

With nowhere to go, Claire throws herself on the mercy of an estranged aunt, begging Lady Miranda Langford to take the children into her magnificent estate. Heavily weighted with grief of her own, Miranda reluctantly agrees . . . if Claire will stay to help. Though desperate to return to France and the man she loves, Claire has few options. But her tumultuous upbringing―spent in the refuge of novels with fictional friends―has ill-prepared her for the daily dramas of raising children, or for the way David Campbell, a fellow American boarder, challenges her notions of love. Nor could she foresee how the tentacles of war will invade their quiet haven, threatening all who have come to call Bluebell Wood home and risking the only family she’s ever known.

Set in England’s lush and storied Lake District in the early days of World War II, and featuring cameos from beloved literary icons Beatrix Potter and C. S. Lewis, Until We Find Home is an unforgettable portrait of life on the British home front, challenging us to remember that bravery and family come in many forms.

Now more than ever, we are fighting for our voices to be heard on earth. We march, we tweet, we advocate on behalf of the voiceless, calling those in power to listen and come alongside us.

Sometimes it feels as if we’re never going to be heard and nothing will ever change.

Known for his powerful prayers, Chaplain Black challenges us, individually and collectively, to make ourselves heard in a way that really changes things―by calling upon the one who holds ultimate power. Through personal story and practical insight, Make Your Voice Heard in Heaven helps us learn to pray in a way that releases God’s power and unleashes His blessing.

December’s Kids Product Roundup 2017

I get products sent to me daily to try out. I unfortunately don’t have time to do a post for each item that I get to review. So I want to make sure these items get seen and learned about. The only other solution I could see to do is to do a December’s Kids Product Roundup 2017 on the products I like and want my readers to know about.

You can easily combine the “Star From Afar” with other traditions your family participates in. Consider placing a little surprise or sweet with your Star everyday to make this fun game more like an Advent Calendar.

Contents:
18 Plastic Monkeys
1 Cube
Simple Instructions

Utter Nonsense – The Hilarious Accent Game is a card game where players combine silly accents with even sillier phrases to create sayings that are just plain ridiculous. The game contains 50 Accent Cards and 450 Phrase Cards which players combine and act out. Sometimes phrases pair well with the accent, but for the most part they don’t – and that’s Utter Nonsense. You don’t have to be good at accents and the combinations don’t need to make sense. In fact, players are encouraged to improvise and make the phrases their own. With each successive round, watch as even your most mild-mannered friends and family become improv masters.

Kids Academy $100 Amazon Gift Card Giveaway #SmartKidsWin #MomBuzz

kids_academyKid's Academy is all about helping children learn verbal, writing and math skills in an easy and fun manner. Apps such as 123 Tracing and Bingo ABC have been top-50 educational apps in the App Store, and Kid’s Academy has also brought the well-known stories and nursery rhymes The Three Little Pigs and Five Little Monkeys to life with interactive apps. The simple interfaces of the apps allow children to take the reins and play on their own, but the sing-a-longs and other activities are perfect for parent or teacher engagement, as well. Research has shown that singing along with nursery rhymes has cognitive and physical benefits for children. Not only are children learning new words and the context in which to use them, but strengthening tongue and mouth muscles at an early age will help with pronunciation skills.

Kids_Academy

Kids Academy is hosting an awesome giveaway! Head over, download the app, and write a review in the App Store. At the end of August, Kids Academy will randomly choose 2 lucky winners who will each win a $100 Amazon gift card! Sweet!

Screen shots

My nephew loved the free trial that Kids Academy offered. He was able to be taught how to write some number and letters, Which was a great to see if my nephew would like the app before we purchased it for him.
