Mom's Bible: God's Wisdom for Mothers


The mom’s Bible is the perfect addition to any mom’s library. The language is easy to understand and makes reading the Bible more enjoyable. This Bible offers additional features. At the beginning of each book there is a summary of what the book you are about to read focuses on & what to look for as far as applying it to your own life. There are also sections that take closer looks at particular verses within book. These can be small stories about the love a mother feels for her new baby or a deeper look at specific characters that you meet along your journey. I found this Bible to be easier to sit down and read as it was broken up with the smaller sections that take away some of the tediousness of reading the Bible.

One of my favourite features of this Bible is the Topical Index. This is extremely handy as a mother. When your child comes to you asking questions about X,Y, & Z, you can simply refer to the back of your Bible and find verses that deal with said subjects. Even better, there is a section called “Answers to Questions Kids Ask” that delves into specific questions such as:

“Can Scientists Prove That Creation Isn’t True?” and “Why Do Good People Suffer?” Even as an adult I found myself asking some of these questions. What a great reference point for ANYONE!

This Bible would make a fantastic gift for ANY mom!

This review was made possible because I received a Mom’s Bible from Thomas Nelson Publishers.

Green Planet Parties


Little April is turning 2 in just 1 more month and memories of all the plates, silverware, and decorations being taken down and promptly thrown away after her 1st b-day party are flooding my memories. What a waste! Well, I just discovered a greener alternative.

Green Planet Parties offers a variety of green solutions for your party. They have everything you could need including reusable party decorations, earth-friendly tableware, loot bags, craft items, lead-free jewelery, and even gift wrap! It truly is your one-stop shop. My favorite items on the site are the reusable cotton name/birthday banners with matching cloth loot bags.

All of their disposable tableware is biodegradable and compostable. They also offer reusable tableware that is made from recycled yogurt containers from Stonyfield Farms in the US. Also, each ‘Party In A Bag’ tableware order comes with a complimentary oxo-biodegradable garbage bag and informational tent cards about your better environmental choices. What a great way to share with your guests about your lifestyle choices!

I really enjoyed the diversity of goody bag items that are offered on the website as well. They are great alternatives to the standard dollar store trinkets that we are all too familiar with. They offer goodie bag items for boys and girls of all ages. My particular favourite goody bag item is the stainless steel cereal bowls. They are VERY cute!

In addition to all the great items for sale at Green Planet Parties, there is also a section filled with great tips about hosting an eco-friendly party.
