The September Swago Board is Here! {Earn Up to 500SB Bonus!}

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Swagbucks. All opinions are always my own.

The digital rewards site Swagbucks is offering big payouts during on their September Swago Board, which runs from September 10th through September 17th at 9am PT! Swago is just like bingo, but in this case you’re filling out squares as you earn points on their site for doing things you already do online. If you’re thinking of trying Swagbucks, this is a great chance to learn all about how the site works and earn bonus points while doing it, meaning you can get more gift cards faster. Here are a few tips:

  • Each square on your Swago Board will contain an action item to complete. They can be anything from getting a search win, completing a survey, or just visiting one of our popular stores!
  • Once you complete the action item in a particular square the square will change color signifying the action item is complete.
  • You have until 12pm PT/3pm ET on Monday, September 17th to mark off as many squares as possible so use your time wisely.
  • Be mindful of the patterns and their corresponding bonuses located on the right of your Swago Board. The patterns will vary in difficulty and bonus value. Once you’ve achieved a pattern, the corresponding “Submit” button will light up. You can have multiple patterns available for submission, however, you can only submit ONE pattern so choose wisely.
  • Each activity you successfully complete on your Swago Board will give you anywhere from 1-20 spins on the Spin & Win Wheel. PLUS, when you submit your board for a bonus you’ll get additional spins. The number of spins will depend on the pattern you complete. The wheel has all sorts of great prizes that you can win, and each spin is a winner!

The Spin & Win Wheel will be available all throughout Swago and you have until 11:59pm PT on Monday, September 17th to use all your spins.

Fill up your board and then submit your pattern to get even more points – if you can fill in the whole board, you get a 500 SB bonus, which is enough for a $5 gift card from the retailer of your choice.

Click here right now and click “Join” to get started! If you don’t already have a Swagbucks account, you’ll be able to quickly sign up; PLUS, if you earn 300 SB before the first of October, you’ll get a bonus 300 SB!

I love Swago! Christmas is right around the corner and it’s an easy way to earn little bonus SB a long the way.

Chik fil A 8 pc nuggets

My go-to (an only) fast food place is Chik-fil-A. I am a sucker for their chicken sandwiches and sweet tea! If you have the app downloaded log in and under rewards you should have an offer for a free 8-count nuggets offer (grilled or original).  This is good through September 29th, 2018.

If you don’t have the app downloaded and go to Chik-fil-A download it NOW! You are missing out on some free food/drinks. Everytime you place and order have them scan your app for points. Take those points and turn them into rewards like free food and drink! You can even make and order for pickup on the app then walk into your location and just pick it up. For those in a hurry 🙂

Enjoy your free nuggets!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of WorthyKids/Ideals and I was given a free copy in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are always my own.The Secret of The Hidden Scrolls- Book Four Journey to Jericho


It’s finally here! The Secret of The Hidden Scrolls Book Four- Journey to Jericho. We have read all 4 books in this series and every time we can’t wait for the next. You can check out our review of book three (including author Q&A) here.


About The Secret of The Hidden Scrolls

A Time-Traveling Adventure Series Helping Children Discover the Bible and Grow in Faith

Join Peter, Mary, and their dog Hank as they discover ancient scrolls and travel  back in time to stories in the Bible. They  find a world filled with wonder, adventure, and danger. They must search for clues to solve the secret of the scrolls … or they will be stuck there forever.

The series contains a rich cast of supporting characters, including Great-Uncle Solomon, the eccentric archaeologist who discovered the scrolls, and the angel Michael, who guides the children on their quests. 

Perfect for emerging readers ages 6 – 9, homeschooling families, and lovers of adventure, The Secret of the Hidden Scrolls brings beloved Bible stories to adventurous life.

If you are unfamiliar with The Secret of The Hidden Scrolls you can learn more about it here (including a sample read from the first 3 books).

In Journey to Jericho Peter, Mary and Hank travel back in time to a desert near Jericho. They start their journey in some sort of tent, which they quickly find out is the Tabernacle. They are spotted and taken away by a man, Joshua, who thinks they are spies. He quickly finds out they are not spies, and they offer him to help him get the Promised Land. But first they have to get through Jericho. That’s it no more spoilers…if you want to find out what happens next you have to read the book!

We actually love reading these books together. I love how biblically accurate they are. M.J. Thomas is a fantastic writer and spends a lot of time reading the bible and doing research so they are accurate as well as adding some fun and imagination into it all. As an added bonus we use these books as a fun read aloud during our homeschool classes, and sometimes the time periods have even matched up with what we are studying! I don’t have to worry about what they are reading with this series either.

Know someone who would enjoy reading The Secret of The Hidden Scrolls? Don’t forget to start at the beginning with Book 1: The BeginningBook 2: Race to the Ark and  Book 3: The Great Escape on Amazon. You can get Book 4: Journey to Jericho at the link below.

Devotions for Sacred Parenting by Gary Thomas Book Review

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of BookLook Bloggers. All opinions are always my own.



The wonderful world of parenting. The never ending are they gonna grow up to be successful, smart, get married and have a family? Did I do it right? Did I give them everything they needed? What if I had done this different? Am I a good parent?!? If you’re like me these are questions that run through your mind daily, often at night after I have the kids tucked into bed and finally trying to rest after a super busy day.

We all want what’s best for our kids now and when they are away from home when we can’t dictate their every move. Sometimes I know I spend too much time saying do this, do that, don’t do this instead of enjoying the time, the messes the chaos.

There is no right or wrong way to parent. There is no magic book that gives you all the answers. The thing is YOU ARE AN AWESOME PARENT! God chose you and he knows what he’s doing! It’s time we stop comparing ourselves to other parents, stop comparing our kids to other kids and just love and enjoy the time we have with them. It goes fast in the blink of an eye.

I received this book called Devotions for Sacred Parenting  by Gary Thomas. It has really been an eye opener, one that has me thinking. And starting to change the way I do things, not for anyone else but for me and my kids.

Book Description

Raising children is a sacred calling—and not for the faint of heart. It shapes the parent every bit as much as parents shape their children. In Devotions for Sacred Parenting, Gary Thomas, author of Sacred Parenting, delves deeper into the conversation and contemplates the soul-transforming journey of being a parent.

Many books have been written about how to parent your children effectively, how to become a better parent, and how effective parenting produces better kids. Devotions for Sacred Parenting explores an entirely different reality: how parenting transforms you, the parent. It explores the spiritual dynamics of parenting and why caring for your children is such an effective discipline in shaping your soul and forming the character of Christ within you.

With all new material, 52 devotions explore the spiritual dynamics of parenting. These life-related devotions are creative, fresh, and encouraging, inspiring mothers and fathers to look at parenting from a different perspective—as a holy and high calling from God, and as an opportunity to grow spiritually as you strive to raise godly children. Devotions for Sacred Parenting helps you understand how God is parenting you as you parent your children.

There are 52 devotions included in this book. Each devotion starts with scripture, includes a story, a prayer and ends with a few questions for reflection. This book is perfect for parents with kids of all ages and all stages of life. It is not meant to tell you what to do just how to make sure that your parenting is focused around God.

I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.

3 John 4

How has parenting changed you? If you are looking for a great devotional you can do alone or maybe with your significant other I highly suggest Devotions for Sacred Parenting. You can purchase it at the link below.

Candy Apple Blessings

Fall is coming! Even though it takes a bit longer to get to Florida than other places, it is one of my favorite season. Mostly because it starts to cool down (a little bit) and we get to enjoy the local parks and camping without all the heat outside.

It follows a group of animal friends as they enjoy fall activities like enjoying delicious candy apples, camping, fires, home decorating  to picking pumpkins.
