A Royal Easter Story by Jeanna Young and Jacqueline Johnson Book Review

A Royal Easter StoryI love getting new books to read to the kids. The latest book we added to our collection was The Princess Parables A Royal Easter Story by Jeanna Young and Jacqueline Johnson. The book is illustrated by Omar Aranda. My daughter loves Princess so she was excited to sit down tonight and read this before bedtime. The book has 32 pages of beautiful illustrations and suggested for ages 4-8.

Book Description

Joy, Grace, Faith, Charity, and Hope are busy with the preparations for the annual Easter celebration, held in a neighboring village. The journey is made more exciting when the girls decide to race their new friends, the five young knights. Along the way, the princesses meet challenges that show their trust in God and kindness of heart.

 

Inside A Royal Easter Story

The princesses in this book are different from other princess out there. They aren’t about finding their prince, true love or dancing at balls. The princess were in a race against the knights to see who could get to the Easter festival first. While they were on their way they ran into a lost little girl in the woods. They didn’t think twice about what to do. They knew they had to be selfless like the Lord and instead of finishing the race they helped save this little girl and find her mother. After this they all huddled together and said a prayer asking God for courage and wisdom in helping this little girl find her mother. This was my absolute favorite part! It reminds us that whenever we need help we just need to take a moment and say a prayer. I love the characters in this story, as you can tell by their names they have really great qualities about them. These are princesses that I wouldn’t mind my daughter dreaming about becoming. The book is so beautifully illustrated and so bright and colorful. Not only did Chloe enjoy the book but I enjoyed reading it to her.

 

You can pick up A Royal Easter Story on Amazon in Hardcover or Kindle format.

I got the new Big Dreams, Big Prayers Bible for Kids NIV by Zondervan for my son to take to Church. I was really impressed with this bible and he has enjoyed it as well. It has a very modern up to date cover with bright colors. Now that he is older this bible is perfect for him. It is recommended for ages 8-12 and is great for both boys and girls.At the beginning of each book it has a summary page that includes who wrote the book, why it was written, what you will learn, who the people of the book are, when it happened and where it happened. Through out the bible important verses are already highlighted, Devotions including big dreams and big prayers by important people in the book. There is also a great illustration to help kids understand how to read the bible and know the different parts of the book. I the back of the bible is a prayer journal, topical index to find important key words throughout the bible and a devotion index. These really help the children find important parts of the bible and go back to read them further. If your child wants to read the entire bible their is a reading plan also listed in the back. It breaks it down into weeks and what books to read every day. These include the most talked about and referenced parts of the bible.

Seventh Generation Organic Tampons with Applicator Review

Seventh Generation Organic Tampons with Applicator

 

Ladies it is time to think about what goes inside our bodies! I received a box of Seventh Generation Organic Tampons with Applicator to review and think I found my new favorite tampons. I have a usual heavy flow so trying out new tampons makes me nervous but I love that these are organic and I am not putting nasty chemicals into my body. They are made with certified organic cotton, whitened without chemicals containing chlorine, and free of added fragrances and dyes. They are easy to insert and remove. I used the whole box and didn’t have any leakage. They feel comfortable and gives no irritation while wearing them. Definitely will be switching out my usual brand for these.

 

Did you know?

These days, there are chemicals of concern found throughout our environment, many of these due from manufacturing processes that have this unintended effect. While that thought can be overwhelming, there are some simple choices we can make in order to be part of the solution.

Many of us try to choose organic foods when possible in order to reduce the use of toxic persistent pesticides in farm fields. Yet there are women still surprised to learn that foods aren’t the only important organic option they have. Seventh Generation Organic Tampons are also available, and just like organic foods, they’re another option to consider.

Why?

Seventh Generation Organic Tampons are made from certified organic cotton, and they are whitened without using chlorine processing, reducing the amount of chlorinated toxins released into the environment. Also, they are free of dyes and synthetic fragrances (which typically contain multiple ingredients!).

Considering that the average woman will buy more than 11,000 tampons in her lifetime (!), organic cotton tampons are a simple but important choice. Try them and see how easy a cleaner, healthier world can be!

Seventh Generation Chlorine-Free Pantiliners Review

 

Seventh Generation Chlorine-Free Pantiliners

 

I use other name brand feminine care products and until recently never thought about them not being good for me. I was curious to try out Seventh Generation Chlorine-Free Pantiliners and they did not live up to my expectations of Seventh Generation products. These liners were too short, there was just not near as much protection and I need. After using them once I knew I couldn’t use them again. They did not stay in place at all. This would create a terrible mess for sure. I can’t tell if they were really absorbant or not because after only wearing them for just a few minutes and moving around did I notice they would not work for me I took it off. While I love Seventh Generation products these just were not made for me.

Better For Baby & The Planet Seventh Generation Free & Clear Baby Wipes

 

Seventh Generation Free & Clear Baby Wipes

While I am passed the diapers & wipes stage I still use baby wipes for many things. I was sent samples of Seventh Generation Free & Clear Baby Wipes to sample and share with friends. Free from fragrances, parabens, phthalates, alcohol and dyes, these wipes are also good for hands and faces and hands that go on faces (and in mouths)! They are soft gentle on baby’s skin and the environment too. Free & Clear Baby wipes use 70% less plastic than the original wipes, thanks to the use of plant materials. They are nice and thick and you don’t have to worry about them tearing apart no matter what you are using them for.
