Called for Life Book Review #FamilyChristianBlogger


I recently read the following book and was so moved by it, that I had to share it with all of you


Book Description
Dr. Kent and Amber Brantly moved with their children to war-torn Liberia in the fall of 2013 to provide medical care for people in great need—to help replace hopelessness with hope. When, less than a year later, Kent contracted the deadly Ebola virus, hope became what he and Amber needed too, after Dr. Kent was given only 48 hours to live. 

Called for Life tells the harrowing story of his evacuation back to the U.S., his miraculous recovery, and the Brantlys' continued dedication to God's call and their African neighbors will leave you humbled and inspired. 

My Review

I had heard some news stories about this case but nothing can compare to the whole story, from the source. I loved learning how it came to be that this family chose to serve in Liberia and the journey before the Ebola breakout. This story has been told is such a true way that I felt like I was on the Journey with Kent and Amber. I cringed when I heard of the horrible deaths of locals that Kent treated as a doctor in foreign lands, I cried at the thought of Kent barely clinging to life all alone and for his wife and kids, thinking that he may not make it home.

There were moments I felt myself holding my breath when Amber would answer a call and not know what the news on the other end would be (and I knew the outcome before reading it!) I have amazing respect for the peace that Kent was able to find during this horrible ordeal and I am in awe of the love and support that surrounded this family through this tragedy.I am so grateful that they were so open in sharing this story with all of us. Called for Life is by far my favorite book of the year.

Mountain Crest Digital Life Tire Gauge Giveaway #lifetiregauge



Product Information

Large LCD display & LED flash light.

Torch LED light leads you to the valve stem.

Philips and Flathead Screwdrivers.

All tools are made of stainless steel.

Lightweight & Compact.

Scissors, Pliers & Tire tread measurer.

This is a great product that will benefit anyone who drives a vehicle and cares about safety. The accurate tire gauge makes sure your tires have the proper air pressure and keeps you and your loved ones safe by improving maneuverability and decreasing the chances of a blowout.

The Life Tire Gauge also comes with a window hammer and seatbelt cutter that is designed to get you out of the car quickly in case of an emergency situation. It also comes with other useful tools that can help in many situations like an LED flashlight, a screwdriver and more.


My Review

Let me start off by stating that this is definitely not your standard tire gauge, but I am sure you have figured that out now by all of the cool features. I have always used the regular ones that are easy for me to lose and I always have had a hard time reading. Yes I am a girly girl, and should have paid more attention to my dad growing up. (sorry dad) but if I had, I might not have come across this product, which I love.

The digital screen that lights up makes it easy for me to get an exact reading, day or night. It also has a ton of tools. The weight is what I would call equivalent to a utility knife. The bright green color makes it easy to find in my car also. 

There is a 90 day risk free guarantee
If you are not satisfied with our product for any reason just return it for a full refund. No Questions. No Hassle. 

 5 year total protection guarantee
Against defects in material or workmanship. Just send it back and they will send you a new one FREE!

My Review

I had foot and ankle surgery in January and I am still having problems with swelling. My doctor recommended that I buy some compression socks, but I don't like the ones that go clear up to my knees. They are too hard to get off and on, so I don't end up wearing them. That is what I love about these plantar fasciitis socks, they are short and so it makes them easy to get off and on, plus they provide the tightness just where I need it. I think due to my swelling I may have needed to order a larger pair, but in my foot that isn't swollen, I found the fit perfect per the sizing chart.

Purple Frog Insect Shielder Patch Review #PFStickIt


Product Description

Have you ever considered what the leading chemical based insect repellents are made of and what effect they could have on young, immature skin? We have and it’s just not natural.

Parents! Introducing the FIRST All-Natural, Skin-Free, Chemical-Free insect defense product that contains a whopping 80mg of active ingredients and can be used almost anywhere! That’s the most potent biting insect protection on the chemical free market.

To use, gently squeeze the break the patented microcapsule inside each patch to release the pure essential oil formula into the spongy diffuser patch. The citrus scent of citronella and lemongrass then provides up to 8 hours of continuous protection from pesky insects such as mosquitoes, black flies, gnats, fleas, tics and even bed bugs.


Get rid of your messy sprays and lotions and replace with all natural, skin free protection. Use on your clothing, baby stroller, pet harness, back pack, tent, golf bag, table, tent, bed side, outhouse….virtually anywhere!

My Review
With 2 small kids, chemicals in products is something that is on my mind more and more. The ingredients list in this is Ingredients
35% Lemongrass Oil, 30% Citronella Oil, 3% Cedarwood Oil, 0.50% Geranium Oil, 5% Rosemary Oil, 5% Peppermint Oil, 5.50% Orange Oil, 16% Lemon Oil.

I don't know if there is anything that will protect you totally from bugs but this does do just as good as the sprays I have purchased before but without the harsh chemicals. The smell was a little overwhelming to me at first but that was because I had the whole pack with me and I was out in the heat so I was getting a much larger volume than you would in just one patch. If the smell is something that bothers you, then you can choose to place it on your backpack, belt or anywhere else that will keep it away from your nose.
