Review-The War on Christmas by Bodie Hodge

The War on Christmas: Battles in Faith, Tradition and Religious Expression by Bodie Hodge. This beautiful, larger, paperback book compiled by Hodge contains chapters by several different authors that give us a unique perspective on what Christmas and the holidays is all about. The book covers the many misconceptions of Christmas, origins of Christmas, when Jesus was really born and many other very interesting facts about the holiday. It covered some of the reasons why the author feels there is a war on Christmas but more information about why we celebrate the season like we do and the facts about why there is a holiday. Some of the chapters are a little "preachy" and seem to more directed to Christians. But you still get a sense of the purpose of why Christmas is so important. I received my copy of this book from Handlebar Publishing in exchange for this honest review. All opinions are my own.

I've Got Your Back: A Leadership Parable by James Galvin

I love books you can learn from that are written as parables. This book has the best of both worlds. One part is the fictional account of 4 people in their 20's who are having issues with their bosses and throughout the story you learn Biblical principals of leading and following well. The story moves along very well and the author really keeps you interested in each of the people involved. Then the second part expands on the story and principals and provides more insight and Bible references. He calls this section A Concise Theology of Leadership. When I saw this title I wasn't sure I wanted to read this section but I was very glad I did. He made Theology interesting. Also at the end there is a discussion guide which is great if you want to use this book in a small group setting. I would recommend this book for anyone interesting in being a follower or leader and really we are one or the other.

I was provided a copy of this book by Handlebar for a honest review.

Soft Scrub 4-in-1 Toilet Care Review

I wasn't sure if I was going to like this product because it seemed pretty large when I removed it from the packaging. But wow, was I amazed at how it worked and how nice and clean my toilet bowl stayed. I am cleaning so much less and there seems to always be a nice scent in my bathroom. You do have to make sure when you clip on the product to the side of the toilet that you make sure that the water runs through it when flushing but it seemed to fit my toilet perfectly. Also it says it lasts up to four weeks but mine has last much longer. It costs less than $2 so really good deal.

Win $1000 from Combat! Want Roaches gone this is the product for you!

 Click here to enter contest.

The same killing power found in Combat Gels is now available in a new discreet design with NEW Combat® Ant & Roach Killing Bait Strips! 

I used Combat traps for several years and almost never saw roaches in our home here in Florida so I  was excited to try the new bait strips. Well I was not disappointed and actually very surprised that the strips were actually better. You can place them almost anywhere unlike the traps, much easier to use. I really love these and with all the rain lately expected to see at least a few in my home but saw none after placing these. Combat you have a winner here.

Freefall to Fly by Rebekah Lyons

I felt this book was very true to life when it comes to the struggles of women and even if you do have a strong support group, family and church, tough times can still take over your life. I loved the quotes at the beginning of each chapter. But in some ways I couldn't relate because it seemed she had unlimited resources to travel, etc when needed or wanted and seemed to me that she was always on the go. The part where she went through the depression was her own story but didn't have any indication that she got professional help and did it much on her own which is not healthy at all. I don't think this book will help you get over your depression but will help you realize you are not alone.

North of Hope by Shannon Huffman Polson

North of Hope is a beautiful memoir of the search for meaning and closure after a terrible tragedy. Not only a journey by the author internally but externally and she brings us along with her in such a fascinating way. Her descriptions of the landscape made me feel if I was there. For anyone who has ever had a personal tragedy I think you will really relate to the authors story and can appreciate what she was going through. She has so many references that I could relate to so I enjoyed to book very much.

20 Mule Team Borax

20 Mule Team Borax really does the trick. I have used Borax for whiting clothes, cleaning my sinks and recently I found it really gets out deodorant stains on shirts. Just make a powder and rub it into the stain leave on for a few minutes and wash with Borax and other laundry detergent. Wow it really does the job. Can say how much I love this stuff.
