~Blog Tour~ When Grace Sings by Kim Vogel Sawyer

~I received this for my honest review, all opinions are 100% my own

I just love this author. This book starts out pretty quickly and jumps you right in. Unlike most books you feel as if you have know the main characters forever. I truly love the way she ties them all in together in the most unexpected way. She has a real knack for a good revolving story line. I love the whole idea behind the reporter Briley trying to discredit the community but instead learning some good lessons of his own. As with all her books, I just loved this one. It is a great story, with wonderful messages.

Book Summary- When Grace Sings (WaterBrook Press, March 2015)

Alexa Zimmerman wonders if the Old Order Mennonite community in Arborville, Kansas will ever fully accept her. Her family roots here aren’t what anyone thought when she first arrived, but she is hopeful that her culinary and hospitality skills will win the skeptics over. The bed-and-breakfast she’s operating needs to succeed so Alexa agrees to allow Briley Forrester, the hotshot reporter from Chicago, to stay as a long-term boarder not knowing his real motives for being amongst the Plain folk.

But when Alexa agrees to host her cousin Anna-Grace Braun, the presence of extended family brings out Alexa’s insecurities and sets Briley on the trail to uncovering a web of hidden truths.

Plans for a secure future and the sweetness of young romance hang in the balance when Alexa and Anna-Grace have to face that their secrets are interconnected, binding the two in ways they could not have imagined. They must trust in a loving, heavenly Father and His plan for their futures.

~Review~ Camping Folding Shovel Pick With Compass

~I received this for my honest review, all opinions are 100% my own.~

We camp ALOT...every year. It is one of our favorite things to do as a family. We also prefer backwoods tent camping so the equipment you need for that is not the same as your run of the mill electrified campgrounds. I was offered to test this Camping Folding Shovel Pick With Compass by CLD Brands and knew it would come in handy.

This is a mini shovel. It comes apart in a small bag with a velcro closure. It is small enough to fit in your pocket, glove box, truck, you can attach to your belt or put it just about anywhere. As you will see in the video it takes seconds to put together. You basically just screw it together. It is easy enough for anyone to do. The shovel works as a shovel, pick, saw, bottle opener and compass. This would make an excellent addition to an emergency kit. It could be a life savor if you get stuck somewhere in the winter.

Now for the down sides. This is too small to be super helpful in a really tough spot. It has some plastic, and the compass well yes I would not rely on it for guidance. I suggest packing a better one. But for back packing, camping or just an emergency this is a great tool and a great price.

You can get your own Camping Folding Shovel Pick With Compass on Amazon!

~Review~ Azure Naturals Retinol Anti Wrinkle Serum & Cucumber Eye Brightening Gel

~ I received this for my honest review, all opinions are 100% my own.~

Lets start with the Azure Naturals ULTIMATE RETINOL Anti Wrinkle Serum. I love a good face serum. Even without a quick return they are good for your face, and a great routine to keep. Something I LOVE about this face serum is what it does not have in it. There is no alcohol and no parabens. It is totally plant based. NO GMO's and not tested on animals.

I love how this serum feels. It comes out in a small line of serum. It takes just a small amount to cover your face. You can instantly feel your skin start to tighten. My skin did not feel greasy at all. It felt clean and looked fresh. I have super sensitive skin and am allergic to many things in skin products. This did not bother me at all. There was no real scent here either. Perfect for people with allergies. I will certainly be using it daily. I prefer to use it at night now and love feeling my skin feel great at bedtime.

I also got the Azure Naturals Cucumber Infused ULTIMATE PEPTIDE Eye Brightening Gel to try out. Now if you have read my blog before you know that I LOVE eye gels. They are one of my favorite beauty products and I rarely find a new one I can use because I am allergic to coconut. This one is free of anything I am allergic too. I felt a tightening around my eye the instant I put this one on. It did not even take a minute. I use this twice a day, you can put makeup on over it and it actually will stay on better than without it. It has a very refreshing but light cucumber scent. You may use it as an all over facial serum, but I like using a combination of both myself.

I think the price is excellent for the length of time these will last you. It is much better than a department store price. Would you like to try them for youself? You can find both Azure Naturals products (and others) on Amazon.

~Review~ Yumms! Grill Mats, Burger Press and BBQ Grill Light & Giveaway!

~I received these for my honest review, all opinions are 100% my own.

Just in time for summertime I was given the chance to try some great BBQ products from Yumms! They sent me Grill Mats, a BBQ Grill Light and a Burger Press. My husband was very excited to get to try these out yesterday.

First up is the two piece set of of BBQ grill mats. These are non stick and are super easy to clean. You just lay these on the grill and keep the meat or veggies, etc on the mat and not falling through to the coals. The mats also block any ash from rising through to your meat when using wood or charcoal. The mat also makes for even cooking compared to open grilling. These can withstand heat of up to 450 degrees. The BEST thing about them is you can cut them to fit any size or shape of grill. We have a round grill so shaped them round. When your done since they are flat you can store them just about anywhere.

Next we got a really nifty BBQ light for your grill. This is adjustable so can be attached to most anywhere. It fits perfectly on the handle of any grill but We put ours on a pole next to our grill. It comes with a screw driver for the battery cover and is easy to remove and replace batteries. It can be used in the rain and is perfect for those late night, Hey a hamburger sounds good kind of nights. It is very bright and you can see much more than just your grill. It honestly just makes a good deck/patio light when your not grilling.

Lastly the Yumms! Burger Press. These make a perferct 4 oz burger, and also have an insert to make smaller burgers which is helpful for feeding young children. It is very compact and all fits together to store easy. It has rubber grips on the bottom which keep it from slipping while in use. It was so easy our two year old was able to help daddy make hamburgers. I would highly recommend using wax paper or something similar to make the burger slide out easier. In order to use start balled up hamburger mix and your spices, etc. You place on the press, put the top with handle down on burger. Gently press it down, and slowly pull up. If you want to make a smaller burger, put the insert in the bottom of the press before adding your meat.

You can get any of these Yumms! Products on Amazon and when you use this link you will also get 10% off. If you sign up below for their email you will get 20% off.
