DSCN2386More: From Messes to Miracles
People everywhere are looking for something more. They're in the grocery store aisle behind you, in the nail chair beside you, singing praise songs in front of you, and perhaps in the mirror staring back at you. People feel messy; plagued by looming feelings of ineffectiveness, indifference, depression, and purposelessness.
Does this sound like you?
What if more of God is actually what’s missing from your life? Whether it's a messy life or a messy problem, it can become a walking miracle when we see God anew and wholly surrender to Him.
You were made for more than surviving. Old stale religion never satisfies. Neither do the solutions the world has to offer. What all of us need is an encounter with God that sets our hearts ablaze. Tammie has seen this in her own life as well as in countless lives around her. Join her in More for a picture of how you can move from a life marked by messes to one that is truly miraculous.

Whatever the Cost: Facing Your Fears, Dying to Your Dreams, and Living Powerfully
About the Author

DAVID AND JASON BENHAM, former professional baseball players, are also nationally acclaimed entrepreneurs. The twin broth-ers' business success earned them a reality show with HGTV, set to air during the 2014 fall season. Due to their commitment to traditional and biblical values, however, the show was abruptly canceled. The Benhams immediately found themselves in the midst of a cultural fire-storm, but they refused to back down and decided to stand and fight for what they believe.

The brothers' first company was recognized as one of Inc. magazine's Fastest Growing Private Companies, and they've been awarded Ernst & Young's Entrepreneur of the Year Finalists, Wall Street Journal's Top Real Estate Professionals, and Business Leader Media's Top 50 Entrepreneurs. They were also named Franchise 500's Top New Franchise.

In this guide to "momlationships," I use a dating analogy to take us "around the bases" to our home-run friendships, the ones that last a lifetime, not just a soccer season. This is our journey to each other, to finding our people and being other people's people, to learning how to bless each other and not destroy each other.


Annie Lobert was not so different from most girls, growing up in a small town and experiencing common struggles with friends, school, and boys. But her home was filled with turmoil, and at nine years old she was sexually abused by an older girl and as a teenager was assaulted numerous times by boys who said they loved her just to get what they wanted. Feeling unloved, used, and abused, she struggled to find self-worth.


These 101 miraculous stories of hope, faith, divine intervention and answered prayers will amaze you! As John Edward says in his foreword to the book: The personal stories you’ll read here about hope, faith, answered prayers and divine intervention are to me all about one thing – our connection to a higher power or divine source.

Good things do happen to good people! You will be encouraged and uplifted as you read these stories about powerful hope, miraculous healing, divine intervention, messages from heaven, answered prayers and beating the odds.

With 2 dogs and 4 cats it can be hard to keep up with each of their skin needs. Over this past summer our dog Duke who is 15 and one of our cats had a bad dry skin issue. They both would scratch themselves until they had bald spots. We didn't have fleas or mites and after getting them checked out at the vet the only thing that came up was dry skin. I was told to use a lubricant for my pets to help with their skin issue. After looking into their food we fed them I was given the chance to try Omega 3 Unscented Salmon Fish Oil for Dogs and Cats. I was excited to try this out to see if this would help. Well so far it seems to have stopped the dry skin issue and there are no more scratching pets. I put about 3 squirts in the cats big food bowl a day and they love it. I also do the same in the dog food bowl and they seems to like it too. Now when we feed the dogs they will look at us until we put the Omega 3 Unscented Salmon Fish Oil for Dogs and Cats on their food. We are pleased that it helped our dry skin issue and I can see that the cats have softer fur and the dogs coats look very shiny and healthy. I would recommenced trying this first before changing the pets food or putting a pet on meds. I like to try to find a healthy more natural solution for my pets.

My family loves cats and with having four cats in our home this was a great read. We could see our cats in some of the facts that were mentioned. I had to pass this book on so my parents who own cats could read the I love cats book too.

DSCN0136What are you waiting for? Do you find yourself waiting for the right moment? The ideal relationship? The perfect job? Are you waiting for your “real” life to begin? Do think that the gifts of life are right around the corner? That one day you will arrive and everything will be okay? Do you endlessly search, yet never seem to find? Through the sharing of authentic personal stories and profound life lessons, Kristen Moeller explores our pervasive human tendency to wait for life and to look outside ourselves for answers. So we don’t try; we give up. We sell out and we forget who we are. We are afraid to succeed, afraid to fail, and afraid to say we are afraid. But as Wayne Gretzky said, “You'll always miss one-hundred percent of the shots you don't take!” Kristen Moeller's mission in life is to inspire you to get on the path, move forward and take the shot.

Zukes dog treats

My Duke is 12+ years and is showing age. I like giving him treats after he goes outside and when I can give him a treat that will help him move better is a plus. The Zuke's treats were very well liked by Duke and he really loved the Venison filets the best. The treats are all natural which make me feel great as I don't want to feed my dog anything that is unhealthy for him. The hip action treats seemed to help with Duke's stiffness that he is suffering from due to his age. I got three flavors of Z-Filets chicken, beef and venison for duke to try out. Duke ate them all but seemed to like the venison the best. I also got the Hip Action in chicken, beef and peanut butter. Duke surprisingly liked the peanut butter ones the best.

Zukes cat treatsMy four girls came running when I opened the bag of cat treats. They were going crazy for them. I put some on the floor and they devoured them. I give my cats treats when I give our dog a treat so they get them a few times a day. I got one of each of the three flavors chicken, tuna and salmon to try. My cats liked them all but seemed to like the salmon the best.

Litter Getter replicates an outdoor environment for your cat, naturally attracting them back to the litter box, it smells fresh, it reduces the unpleasant ammonia-odors found in Litter boxes, enhancing the quality of life, for both you and your cat.

– Attract problem cats back to the litter box
– Assist in training kittens
– Reduce unpleasant litter box odor
– Comfy for cats with sensitive paws
– Clumps with all clumping litter.

Litter GetterWhere was this years ago when my cats were kittens lol. I have four cats and this last year has been a tough one for them with having to move to a new house, one of them getting a bladder infection and getting new litter boxes to try out. I now found a product that will help with my cats bathroom needs. Over the last few weeks I have put this in the litter boxes and I can say my cats are now using the new litter boxes too. With having four cats means having four litter boxes and when you have to buy a new or in my case review a new litter box it can be hard to get my cats to use it. I think it only took two days of using Litter Getter to get my cats to use all the litter boxes I have. I also have an automated litter box that two of my cats would not use and I have had it over six months. I mixed the Litter Getter into my bucket of cat litter and mixed it up and put the litter in all four of my litter boxes. After a day I didn't really see any thing but on the second day I caught one of my cats using the automated litter box and I had never seen her using it before. Then my son and husband on different days caught the cats all using all four of the litter boxes. I plan on buying more of the Litter Getter to have on hand for the next time we get a new litter box to review and to use if my cats start to not use a litter again. My four cats are older and Litter Getter worked with helping them to use all the litter boxes.
