Hattie Peck: The Journey Home is the second book in this series. We loved the first book and without surprise have enjoyed the second just as much. In this lovely offering by author Emma Levey, we see that Hattie faces the challenge of letting go as her diverse and wonderful flock are now ready to leave the nest so to speak.
Complete Guide to Bible Journaling: Creative Techniques to Express Your Faith (Fox Chapel Publishing) by designer, inspirational speaker, and author of the Zenspirations® book series Joanne Fink introduces a powerful new way to engage with Scripture through art.

The Beautiful Word 365 Devotional will stir the heart, inspire the soul, and delight the eyes. Being an artist and a fan of simple designs inspired by shapes, natures, and colors I adore this book. It pairs beautifully with the Bible in the same line but stands well enough on its own that you don’t need it.

Swagbucks is hosting another round of Shopping Swago! What is SWAGO you ask?

If you’ve never used Swagbucks, participating in SWAGO is a great introduction to the site and an easy way to earn a good amount of points quickly.
Growing minds need interesting books that are fun to look at and educational. A book that my one-year-old daughter goes back to again and again is 100 First Words. I knew the updated version of the book was a must-have because the previous edition I had for my two older children and since gifted to another mother was enjoyed just as much.
In this book, babies and toddlers are introduced to familiar things. The categories covered on two-page spreads are My Body, My Toys, Out and about, Mealtime, Pets, Things that go, and Bathtime. Things seen range from slippers to flowers. Bright colors and patterns appear on all pages.
The Rainbow Sippers Sippy Lids are a product I really like. These have saved me the trouble of throwing out old cups just because tops and sipping mechanisms wear out. I am saving money on not buying more cups as well as the hassle in trying to even see if spare valves or lids can even be replaced. Some brands of cups do have spare parts but just as many don’t. I don’t like having to replace cups every few months because little by little it adds up to my pocket book and to the land field!
