Out Live Your Life-Book Review

I chose to review the book, “Out Live Your Life” by Max Lucado because I had read other books from this author as a child and enjoyed them.  This book shows us that we can make a difference in the world today.

We all tend to turn our heads and say the problem is too big for us.  What this book shows us is that we can all do something. Regardless of how small, God can use it for His glory.

We see examples from the bible where Jesus gets involved and makes a difference in the lives of those in need.  In today's world, there are so many needs, big and small.  And if we are willing to help, God can use us in so many ways to make a difference in the situation.

I think every Christian should read this book.  I think if we read this book, and begin to help others we can make a difference in the lives of those hurting and in need.   This book also has a in depth study guide in the back. I think this would be a great group study. I think this would make an excellent book to give anyone. 

I was given a copy of this book from book sneeze for my honest opinion.

Book Review-Will the World End in 2012?

I chose to review the book Will the World End in 2012 by Raymond C. Hundley Ph.D.
from Booksneeze because I am very intrigued by the end of time predictions. 

I really enjoyed reading this book it was very interesting.  Each topic is discussed and given reason as to why or why not the prediction can happen.  This is easy for the average person to pick up and understand.  It gives you the scientific evidence of a prediction or the lack there of. 

This book is written from a Christian stand point.  All of the evidence is presented but ultimately it gives the reader a choice to decide where they stand on each of the end of the world predictions.  I think this book is good for anyone who may have questions about all of the 2012 predications.  As a Christian it is our responsibility to be prepared for the end of  time, whether it be December 21, 2012 or tomorrow. 

As a blogger I was given this complimentary copy to review.  The above opinions are mine and are honest.

Crazy Dog T-shirts and NachoMama Tees

  I received a shirt from Crazy Dog T-Shirts and their other website NachoMama Tees. Both of the websites have a bunch of shirts and a LOT of cute designs. I got the shirt called "how i roll muffin shirt" and I am going to giveaway the "you rock you rule shirt". They have so many funny t-shirts, it was very hard to pick what shirt was my favorite.

These shirts are made from 100% cotton and very light weight, they are made to look somewhat vintage. The sizing chart helps very much when you are trying to decide what size fits you. These shirts are made a fashion fit, and the girls shirts run a little bit small. The printing on these shirts does not look cheap and they hold up very well through washing. Whenever I wear any of their shirts I always get a lot of comments on how cute they are. They have a very wide selection of t-shirts on both websites. 

What YOU can win:
"you rock, you rule" t-shirt size girls medium

Assassin's Creed II (nintendo DS)

      I bought this game at Target for $29.99. This game is rated "T", it contains violence, and minimal blood. This is a action game that will keep you interested until the end! They make this game for Xbox 360, PS3, PC, and Nintendo DS. I wouldn't recommend this game to anyone under 12, because I don't want 12 year olds walking around town trying to kill someone (haha).

I enjoy this game very much. When you are at the beginning it can be very confusing, but after you get passed the first level it is alot easier to understand. The graphics for this game is great! In the nintendo DS version of this game, it does not show much blood at all. This game keeps you interested until the end. I am not the best person at playing video games, so I definately enjoy the endless lives (haha). They did a great job making the characters in this game. I LOVE this game, I would recommend this game to any of those gamers who loves action and blood!

Covergirl Smokey Shadow Blast!

 I recently received one of these in the mail from my sister. I use the Tempest Blue and I absolutely LOVE IT! You can buy one for $7 at Target. They come in 6 funky colors. I think Covergirl had a great idea when they made this one! I think every teenage girl will fall in love with this product after they try it.

There is a "Step 1" and a "Step 2". Step 1 is eyeshadow (apply it to your eyelid) and Step 2 is eye liner (apply on the crease of the eye lid and around the eye). The two different ends help make that great look you want. The only thing I do not like is the eye liner doesn't stay pointed, the end gets dull the more you use it and it makes a thicker line around your eye. The colors will fit most anyone, and match almost everything! I also like the size, because it is small enough to fit in your purse (just in case you need to re-apply). I have really fell in love with this product. It comes in very handy in the mornings when you are running late and you don't have alot of time to do alot of make-up. You can make it look very simple or you can make it bold. I prefer the simple look. I have not tried all of the colors, but I do intend on trying them all. I will most deffinately reccomend this to all of my girl-friends.

Gigi's Big Break! (DVD)

Gigi's big break is about honesty and loving siblings. It has 2 stories in it (The White Lie and The Pink Suprise). You can find this DVD at Amazon for $14. It also has 5 special features such as a sing along song, a how-to-draw mini feature, and also dvd-rom extras with coloring pages. It is a little over an hour long. The stories are about 30 minutes each.

In the first episode, The White Lie, Gigi gets in trouble by telling a white lie. She learns that when we do wrong and try to cover it up, things usually end up worse, but that God loves us anyway. This story is based on John 1:8-9.

In the second episode, The Pink Suprise, Gigi learns that the world doesn't revolve around her. She has to learn that siblings are a blessing and a lifetime adventure, but that sometimes means that you are not first in everything. Gigi has to learn to love the new bundle of joy that God has given her family. This is based on Luke 10:21.

In this DVD children will learn to be honest and love thier siblings. I think this is a very cute DVD and can relate to a lot of things that young children face (best for kids 3 and up if you ask me). Although this DVD is meant for children, I think everyone can get something out of it. The stories are interesting enough that children will stay interested the whole time.

Toshiba Satellite Laptop!

I bought my laptop about a year ago. The price is anywhere from $650-$800 (depending on if it is on sale). I love my laptop, it fits all my personal needs, but it also good for school projects and papers. I bought mine at BestBuy. Before I bought it, I did alot of research on what laptops would work better with my lifestyle and my use for it (school/personal).

This laptop has a great webcam, which I use my webcam to make funny videos with my friends. The battery lasts about 2-3 hours depending on what you are doing. I love the size of  the screen (15.4"). It is not too big, but it is not too small either. I really like the ease of turning it on and off, I know some laptops I have used take forever to turn on and forever to turn off, this one is alot quicker! One thing I dont like about it is fingerprints seem to love it (if you are a perfectionist that could be a problem). I like the idea of the touch screen buttons at the top, but most of the time I will accidently hit them and turn something on that I dont want turned on right then (haha). The keyboard set up of this laptop is a little different than some, but after you use it for a while I think it is easier to use. It has 3 USB ports, I love that because I can have my iPod charging while I am uploading pictures from my camera.

Overall, I would recommend this laptop to any of my friends.
