We cry out for rain. Currently, (as of my post) there are over 50 wildfires burning in the Western region of America. It seems like every time I check the news, there’s another fire that has started either naturally or out of negligence from the urgent burn-ban that’s been up for months now.
Wow! The Good News in Four Words by Dandi Daley Mackall is a great hard-cover picture book! It is geared toward boys and girls ages 3-6 years old. It presents in a simplified way on how to come to know Jesus as their own personal Savior and Lord.
The main four words used are Wow, Uh-oh, Yes, and Ahh. Each word is broken down through the book. The word “Wow” for example demonstrates and explains the creation of the world, the word Uh-Oh shows how sin entered the world and how we became separated from God, you get the picture. The message is powerful and it’s the most simplified version of the gospel I’ve seen for children in this age range.
Foundations of Drawing by Al Gury is more of an educational resource on the history of art yet also providing information on techniques, styles, drawing materials, skills, and a few exercises in drawing certain things like still-lifes, buildings, etc. The building blocks into understanding art are all in this book so it’s quite suitable for a beginner art student, an art enthusiast, or both! I feel that this book proves a useful tool and resource in a greater understanding of this form of self-expression.
I’m pleased that even though it’s a roaring upper 90s outside that I brought myself to cook a dessert bread for my family. Everyone is all about Fall and I’m all there with them but the truth is, Summer isn’t officially over on the calendar till Friday, September 22nd. That’s right, Summer is here to stay in Oregon for three more weeks. I want to get all the cool weather clothes out so badly but I’m stopping myself and enjoying these last few weeks of warm weather and sunny skies. Autumn is my favorite season so I’m really eager for the season change though!
Swagbucks is currently offering double cash back or more at a number of stores for Labor Day weekend! From JC Penney to Lowes, you’ll get cash back (in the form of SB points) for buying your gifts online through Swagbucks. They also have offers where you can earn SB points towards free gift cards for things like trying Hulu.
You can find all of the details here. If you haven’t signed up for Swagbucks yet, you can also do that at this page and start earning points towards your first free gift card. As a bonus, if you sign up through me, you’ll get a 1000 SB “Swag up” rebate on the first gift card you get with your SB points – that’s $10 in addition to the points you get for each dollar you spend.
It may almost be the end of Summer, but you can still earn big bonuses at Swagbucks, a rewards site where you earn points (called SB) for things you’re probably doing online already, like searching, watching videos, discovering deals, and taking surveys. Then you take those points and exchange them for gift cards to places like Amazon, Starbucks, Walmart, Target, or PayPal cash.
When you sign up through me this month, you can earn a $3 bonus! Here’s how:
2. Earn 300 SB total before 10/1/17. You’ll get a $3 (300 SB) bonus for it!
3. That’s it. It’s super easy, and Swagbucks is for real. I use it myself, and I’ve earned 50,000 Swagbucks which I used on Amazon gift-cards during the month of August and was able to get many new tops to add to my attire for the upcoming Autumn and Winter season. I’m saving up now for Christmas presents.
