The Forgiven Duke by Jamie Carie (review and giveaway CLOSED!!)


About the Book:

Tethered by her impulsive promise to marry Lord John Lemon – the path of least resistance – Alexandria Featherstone sets off toward Iceland in search of her parents with a leaden heart. A glimpse of her guardian, the Duke of St. Easton – the path less traveled by – on Dublin’s shore still haunts her.

Will he come after her? Will he drag her back to London, quelling her mission to rescue her treasure-seeking parents, or might he decide to throw caution to the wind and choose Foy Pour Devoir: “Faith for Duty,” the St. Easton motto. The Featherstone motto Valens et Volens: “Willing and Able,” beats in her heart and thrums through her veins. She will find her parents and find their love, no matter the cost.

The powerful yet wing-clipped Duke of St. Easton has never known the challenge that has become his life since hearing his ward’s name. Alexandria Featherstone will be the life or the death of him. Only time and God’s plan will reveal just how much this man can endure for the prize of love.

My Opinion:

I did enjoy this second book in the Forgotten Castles series, however, unlike the first one I would not let my unmarried daughter’s read this book.  I enjoyed all the plot twists but the violence, unmarried people lying and sleeping in the same bed, and lots of kissing and touching between unmarried people, is enough to send warning bells for young readers who may have read the first book.  While I say this as a caution, I must admit I did enjoy the book, even though I didn’t agree with the choices and actions made by the characters.  This was a definite page turner, and I’m looking forward to finishing the series when the next book comes out later this year.  So, if you’ve read the first and want to or need to know what happens with the Duke, Mr. Lemon and Alexandria then grab this one!

The Five Love Languages of Children by Gary Chapman and Ross Campbell (**review and giveaway!)


 

About the Book:

 

To be their best, children need to feel loved. But if you and your child speak different love languages, your affection might get lost in translation, affecting the child’s attitude, behavior, and development. Dr. Gary Chapman’s groundbreaking Five Love Languages series has helped millions of couples communicate love more clearly, and Dr. Ross Campbell M.D. has applied the innovative system to children as well. The 5 Love Languages of Children gives practical suggestions for learning how your children interpret love and creating a sense of security in which they can thrive. Now with over 1,000,000 copies sold!

 

My Opinion:

This is a wonderful book.  I have never read the other love languages books but after reading this one about children’s love languages I just might have to check out the one for adults.  I’m hoping to utilize the ideas in this book to better build the bonds between my children and I – and I also thought it might be fun to introduce the treasure hunt to my 4-H group so that all the adults will be better able to respond to the children there but on a much larger scale.  Most parents do love their children but some of us struggle on how to show that love – I asked my oldest the other day if she knew I loved her and she said “I know you do but you don’t show it”.  What a wake up call.  I’ve learned that for her gifts and quality time are her love languages where my other two seem to be physical touch and quality time.

 

If you’re thinking, like I was, well I can’t afford to buy a gift every day or I don’t have time to do one on one things – think again.  There are so many ideas in this book to jump start you speaking your child’s love language and if your child’s love language is gifts – it doesn’t have to be bought, something made (I like gifts and 5 year old will bring me a bouquet of dandelions, what a gift!) will suffice and if you can’t make it or buy it the book will help with that too.  I’m so glad that I agreed to do this review because I almost passed it up on the thought that I didn’t need this but I did and I think all parents do to.  There is a also a free study guide that you can download here.

A Perfect Pet for Peyton by Rick Osborne and Gary Chapman (review and CLOSED giveaway)


About the Book:

This wonderfully imaginative children’s hardcover book by bestselling authors Gary Chapman and Rick Osborne, featuring four-color illustrations (with hidden details!) by Wilson Williams, Jr., will help children learn the importance of love. Based on Gary’s highly successful The 5 Love Languages®, A Perfect Pet for Peyton tells an entertaining and playful story of five children who each, with the help of Mr. Chapman and the unique pets at his special emporium, discover their own personal love language. Children and parents alike will experience firsthand the power of the love languages as they cuddle up and spend precious time together reading this book over and over again.

*Free interactive app with in-book experience COMING SOON to the Apple App Store.

My Opinion:

This is a really cute book, I never really gave any thoughts to the love languages that so many have talked about for so long, but after reading this book it made me think how I can better relate to my children.  The colorful illustrations and hide and seek activities through out kept even my 10 year old’s attention (she enjoys me reading aloud but something that would be perceived as a too young book isn’t always listened to).  The animals are of a wide variety and for the boy in my life the brief area about dinosaurs was an attention grabber.  I’d like to take more time to read through it again and do all the activities that are scattered throughout and my children enjoyed trying to guess what their love language was – I have one whose primary is gifts and secondary is quality time while I have two others whose primaries are physical touch and secondary is quality time.

The Woodcarver DVD (review and giveaway CLOSED)


About the Movie:

Matthew Stevenson is a troubled kid from a broken home. When he vandalizes the local church to get back at his parents, Matthew has to repair the damage to the church to avoid criminal charges. While working at the church, he meets Ernest (John Ratzenberger), an accomplished wood carver who created the intricate woodwork decoration that Matthew destroyed. Ernest has become something of a hermit, but reluctantly comes out of reclusion to help repair the church. Now Ernest and Matthew must work together to preserve the church’s beautiful antiquity, and along the way, they also manage to restore their faith in God and in life.
My Opinion:
I grew up watching Cheers, yes, not a children’s show but regardless I watched it and I fondly remember Cliff so when I saw that John Ratzenberger was in the new movie put out by Christian Cinema I jumped on it because I knew my husband and I would enjoy seeing him in something besides Cheers.  At first it was weird seeing him in such a serious roll, but he plays his roll so well that you eventually realize that he is one actor who can do many rolls.  When he talks about the Lord and faith and praying in the movie, it doesn’t feel forced and seems very genuine.

I liked the whole theme of restoration – families being restored, buildings being restored and ultimately Faith in the One True God being restored – after all He is the only way to achieve full restoration!  My husband and I both were a little deflated at the ending and thought something more could have been done to give a little more closure to the whole thing, but ultimately this is one movie that the whole family, even my 5 year old, would be able to watch as it’s VERY family friendly and has such a strong message of the Christian faith.

Vineyard Music: Miami Live **review and giveaway CLOSED**


About the Album:

What happens when a group of 20+ musicians and 10+ songwriters steeped deep in their own musical traditions of Black Gospel, Latin, Caribbean, and Anglo come together to create a new tradition and sound? What happens when the fusion of Black, Anglo, Latino, Caribbean, and Cuban voices unite together to worship in one voice? Among the 2000 people that attend the Miami Vineyard Community Church, there are over a hundred singers, instrumentalists and songwriters that make up its eclectic worship ministry. For one night, these musicians joined together in worship and invited the church to document the sound that is uniquely MIAMI VINEYARD LIVE.

This distinctive bi-lingual liturgy is filled with many flavors, from Latino claves to gospel two-step to funk and soul to delay-laden rock guitars of modern worship, yet they all work together seamlessly to create a new sound and voice that is authentic and refreshing. From anthems of praise and proclamation to songs of intimacy and adoration, there is a common thread running deep throughout this recording and that is true worship of the Living God as an expression of His Kingdom breaking in on the streets and beaches of Miami, FL.

My Opinion:

Step with me onto the sandy beaches, dig your toes into the white sand, smell the sea salt air and worship the Creator.  While I’m not who wiles away for the ocean this CD easily makes me think of worshiping the Lord with Brothers and Sisters from all cultures and backgrounds and joining together in the sounds of music.  The upbeat music and sometimes mild rhythms had both my children and I singing along and dancing to praise and worship the Lord.  There are 13 songs on the CD and all are beautiful and make worship take on a new meaning when one thinks of not everyone uses hymns to worship the Lord – some use a steal drum and speak with a deep Caribbean accent.

“The Guardian Duke” by Jamie Carie **review and giveaway CLOSED**


About the Book:

The Guardian Duke is award-winning novelist Jamie Carie’s most exciting story yet, a uniquely arranged Regency-era romantic adventure where hero and heroine know each other through written letters but have yet to meet.

Gabriel, the Duke of St. Easton, is ordered by the King to take guardianship over Lady Alexandria Featherstone whose parents are presumed dead after failing to return from a high profile treasure hunt. But Alexandria ignores this royal reassignment, believing her parents are still alive and duly following clues that may lead to their whereabouts. Gabriel, pressured by what are actually the King’s ulterior motives, pursues her across windswept England and the rolling green hills of Ireland but is always one step behind.

When they do meet, the search for earthly treasure will pale in comparison to what God has planned for both of them.

About the Author:

When she was six, Jamie’s parents met Jesus and soon after started a church. It changed everything.

Road trips with her dad—to and from Bible studies across Indiana—were filled with talks of things beyond earth’s bounds – creation and the fall, God and Jesus and the rapture, the earthly walk compared to the spiritual walk, and how we are born for more than what we can see or touch.

The highlight of those nights was stopping at a truck stop in the middle of the night where her dad would spend a little of the offering basket on two slices of pie and a couple of Cokes. Nothing ever felt so special as a middle of the night slice of pie with her dad. And nothing could stop the writing pouring out of her.

As Jamie’s relationship with God grew, she discovered her heart was filled with songs and poetry. During high school she wrote lyrics for her brother’s band. (And she sang them too!) After college, Jamie married, had two sons and decided to stay home with them. While she homeschooled she wrote skits, poems, plays and short stories for school and church.
When her eldest son turned five she dove into the world of novels. She’d read romance novels for years, but couldn’t relate to the flawless, saintly heroines in Christian romance novels. So she decided to write her own.

Snow Angel was born on a frosty night in an old farmhouse in Fishers, Indiana, where the cold floor gave plenty of motivation for the snow scene. Jamie loves to write late at night when the house is quiet and the darkness seems alive. Elizabeth and Noah had been playacting in herhead for a long time, so the story went fast.
Ten years later Snow Angel was published and won the ForeWord magazine Romance Book of the Year winner, was a National “Best Books 2007” Awards winner, and a 2008 RITA Awards® Best First Book finalist. It was the beginning of her dream career.

Jamie and her husband Tony have been married for twenty-one years and live in Indianapolis with their three sons and a giant of a dog named Leo.

If she could only say one thing to her readers it would be, “Live the dreams God has destined you for!”

My Opinion:
This book blew my socks off!  I had a hard time putting this down and I read it through with few stops in a day, I’ve never read Jamie Carie’s books before but that is going to change after reading The Guardian Duke.  I’ve also never been one to get into the Regency genre but again I’m rethinking that – this book had me enraptured from the first page and as such I’m already on the edge of my seat and looking forward to the second in the series because I just have to know what happens to Duke Gabriel and Lady Alexandria and her missing parents.
While this is a romance the two are kept apart by Alexandria’s strong will on no fault of the Duke who is pursuing her regardless of the costs.  The ties that bind child to parents even with abandonment are so strong that no fear of death could keep a daughter from searching and even though he’s never set eyes on her the written word tells the Duke what he wants in a wife.  Without giving away the plot or the story – the twists, the turns, the excitement will have you swept up in the pages of the story making the moors and old abandoned monasteries come alive.

I Love Your Presence music CD – review and giveaway **Closed, no winner, no entries**


About I Love Your Presence:

I LOVE YOUR PRESENCE was recorded live at the Burn Bright: Worship and The Kingdom of God conference, hosted by Vineyard Worship.  Several hundred worship leaders and worshipers gathered in the Arizona desert to explore the nature of God’s kingdom through music and teaching with some of the Vineyard’s most gifted communicators and musicians.  This inspiring collection of songs recorded live at The Vineyard Church North Phoenix will immerse listeners in the powerful worship that was the highlight of the even.  I LOVE YOUR PRESENCE reminds us to not just think of worship as singing songs, but also laying down our lives for Him.

My Opinion:

This is a great album to listen to when you need to just feel God’s love and worship Him through music.  I enjoyed listening to it while I did my Bible reading and even played it quietly in the background while my children did their school work during the day.  It was a great way to feel grounded in His Word and also to make His presence (no pun intended) as we went through our daily routine.  I know that we will continue to enjoy both it’s peaceful qualities as well as the worshipful aspects that can weave it’s way into our lives.

There are 13 songs on the CD and they are:

  1. Let It Come
  2. Glory to the King
  3. Saving Grace
  4. What Can I Bring
  5. Love of God
  6. One Thing Remains
  7. Now and Ever
  8. Invitacion Fountain
  9. Sweet Mercies
  10. Isn’t He/Amazing Grace
  11. I Love Your Presence
  12. Perfect Sacrifice
  13. I Life My Eyes Up (Psalm 121)

Review Game of Your Life – Family Movie Night movie


This was my first time being able to watch a NBC T.V. movie before others and it was exciting.  My husband and I sat down to watch it together, our children started out watching it with us but gradually lost interest.  It was a bit slow moving at first but it picked up and we became engrossed in the plot line and twists that occurred in the movie.

I did find myself annoyed with the room mates of the main character, Zach Taylor, as they seemed to be focused only on gaming and constructing games.  I don’t know much about gaming, although I do play the Wii or my NDS, any further than that I don’t know much about what goes into making a game so maybe this was a realistic portrayal of the life of a student learning the gaming industry.

Other than that my husband and I did enjoy the movie, even though their is deceit in the movie between Zach, his friends and family it doesn’t turn out pretty and he learns a lesson that what you choose to do has consequences, either positive or negative.  If you’d like to find out more about Game of Your Life visit the website and be sure to turn in to on December 2nd at 8/7 central on NBC to watch this movie that is fine for the whole family – although if they are younger they may get bored with it, older ones and gamers are sure to enjoy it though.

**I was given a screener copy of the above movie from Propeller Review Network in exchange for my honest opinion, no other compensation was given.
