The Stray - A Doggone Good Family Movie #spon

Disclosure: I received this information and Fandango movie codes, free of charge, from FrontGate Media to facilitate a post on this blog. No monetary compensation has been received, nor was I told how to post about this movie. Any opinions stated are those of the Shelly's Bits and Pieces family.


"The Stray" tells the true story of a stray dog who saves a struggling family in more ways than one.

“Pluto” comes out of nowhere and quickly makes himself at home with the Davis family, who are on the brink of falling apart. Dad (Michael Cassidy; Argo, Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice) is a career-driven workaholic who is neglecting his marriage and family. Mom (Sarah Lancaster; Chuck, Saved by the Bell: The New Class) is at her wit’s end raising three young kids. The last thing they need is another mouth to feed. Or is it? In just a short time with the Davis family, Pluto the “wonderdog” manages to save a lost toddler, bring comfort and companionship to a hurting 9-year-old boy (Connor Corum; Heaven is for Real), help restore a marriage, and repair a broken father-son relationship. Pluto is not only a guard dog – he’s a guardian angel.  "The Stray" was written and directed by Mitch Davis (The Other Side of Heaven).

Sometimes help comes from the most unlikely places. Sometimes our prayers get answered in strange ways. Sometimes one dog can change everything.



If you are like me, you are always on the look out for a family friendly movie.  Nothing makes us happier than being able to go have a family movie night, and when it is a Dove approved movie, I know it is safe for everyone.  "The Stray" hit movie theaters on October 6th, and it looks adorable.  The biggest attraction for my family has to be the DOG!  We are big dog lovers and Pluto looks like he will be the star of the show!  My mom and I are going to take kids this week.  Poor Daddy has to work, so he will have to miss it!  What are your thoughts?  Check out the movie trailer and let me know what you think in the comments below.

Same Kind of Different As Me Comes to Theaters Oct. 20 Plus Fandango #Giveaway #Sponsored #SameKindMovieL3

Disclosure:  This is a sponsored post from LEV3L Digital for Paramount Pictures/Pure Flix. All opinions are my own. I will receive the same prize for participating in this promotion.


"Nobody can help everybody, but everybody can help somebody." Words of wisdom from a homeless drifter; words that never would be shared with the world if not for a wayward husband, a forgiving wife, and an unforgettable true story that brought the three of them together.

With more money than they could ever possibly need, Ron and Debbie Hall have everything they could ever want … except for a loving marriage. When Ron’s unfaithfulness is brought to light, Debbie invites him to stay—as long as he remains truthful and does what she asks of him. But when her request includes serving the homeless at an inner-city rescue mission, Ron would prefer to write a large check instead.

Guided by her faith and spurred on by the dream of a homeless man she senses will change their city, Debbie befriends a disenfranchised man named Denver. More surprisingly, so does Ron. Despite vast differences, their lives begin to intersect and they all are changed … forever.

Based on an unforgettable true story of forgiveness, friendship, family, and faith, SAME KIND OF DIFFERENT AS ME opens in theatres October 20. With two Academy Award® winners and two nominees, the film’s outstanding cast brings to life the New York Times bestseller that interweaves stories of international art dealer Ron Hall (Greg Kinnear), his grace-giving wife Debbie (Renée Zellweger), their unexpected friend Denver (Djimon Hounsou), and Ron’s estranged father Earl (Jon Voight).



Our thoughts:
When I was first contacted about the opportunity to learn about Same Kind of Different As Me, I had no idea what it was about.  I had never heard of the book, which spent 3 years on the NY Times Best Sellers list, but as soon as I saw the trailer and visited their website, I knew I had to share this with my readers.
My daddy instilled great values in me, one of them being volunteering.  Whenever I help someone, I feel like I get much more out of it than they do.  Most of the time, I end up learning more from the people I help than I ever imagined I could.  Daddy also taught me that we are all different, even identical twins have different personalities.  With that being said, we are all the same.  We each have things that we are afraid of, things we wish we were better at, and we each have our own quirks.  Everyone has them!  In this movie, that becomes apparent.  I loved the fact that Debbie asks her husband, Ron, to serve at the homeless shelter.  Serving others, especially those who are in need, will open your eyes and make your heart so full.  I encourage you to try it!

Every one can make a difference and help change our world.  It all starts with one simple act of kindness.  Need some ideas?  Here are a few things we have done:

  • Donate food, clothes, household goods and time to your local homeless shelter, help center or rescue mission.  
  • Offer your time as a tutor
  • Mow a neighbor's lawn
  • Help someone carry their groceries to their car
  • Pay for the person behind you in a fast food line
  • Make a monetary donation to a special cause
  • Smile and greet everyone you see....smiles are contagious!

Post about your acts of kindness on social media and use the hashtag #SameKindMovieL3. (You even get bonus giveaway entries for sharing)  Encourage others to do the same! It's about time we started a kindness revoltion!

You can learn more about Same Kind of Different As Me by checking out their website (linked above), or by following the movie on social media.

Adult tickets are for ages 10 and up. 

Also, please keep in mind it may take a few business days for you to receive your eTicket, so be sure to give yourself enough time when redeeming before you plan to visit the park.

Patterns of Evidence Exodus Review #FlyBy #PatternsOfEvidence

Disclosure:  I received a free copy of this DVD to facilitate my honest and unbiased review.




About the author/filmmaker/producer
Tim Mahoney founded Mahoney Media Group, Inc. (MMG) in 1989. MMG focused its business on television and video production for regional and national companies. In 2014 Tim founded Thinking Man Films & Media as an international documentary & publishing company with a focus on education and the Bible. Tim produced numerous productions for Christian organizations including the Billy Graham Association, World Wide Pictures, and Compassion International. Tim also served as the President of the board for the International Christian Visual Media Association (ICVM). Tim’s first full feature documentary film, “PATTERNS OF EVIDENCE: THE EXODUS”, released in January 2015. The film took 12 years to develop and takes a scientific approach to investigate the events of the biblical Exodus. The overall vision for his film company is to explore “patterns of evidence” that support the biblical narrative and engages the world in a conversation. The film takes a balanced approach and leaves the audience to decide for themselves if the Bible is real history or myth.
About the film

  • Won 13 awards on the film festival circuit in 2014, including a Gold Remi Award winner for Best Director at the Worldfest Houston Intl. Film Festival, the Gold Crown Award for Best Picture and Best Documentary at ICVM 2014, and Official Selection at the Soho International Film Festival in New York.
  • Supplemental resources associated with the film include a nearly 400-page hardcover book, small group Bible study, Movie Event kit, youth version (called Young Explorers), homeschool curriculum and others.
  • It includes powerful interviews with some of the top experts in the fields of archaeology and Egyptology as well as people of influence in the Middle East.
  • The film has an objective, fair-minded and balanced approach. It allows viewpoints from all sides to be heard in a respectful way while asking honest questions of the Bible and scholars’ views. It does not preach and lets the evidence speak for itself. This allows the film to be very shareable with those of different viewpoints.

Our Thoughts:
All my life, I have been involved in church. My papa was a lay minister and my daddy was a preacher, so I have had a greater Biblical education than a lot of people. I was excited to see this DVD to find out what it had to say. We were very pleased to finally see the facts being shown that matched the Bible. In an age where the Biblical facts are being challenged, it was wonderful to see the truth brought to light. I feel that Patterns of Evidence Exodus is a must see for all people, not just Christians. It is informative and the finds are down right exciting to see. We are very blessed to have reviewed this DVD.

MINNIE’S HAPPY HELPERS DVD Review #ad

Disclosure:  I received a free copy of the DVD to facilitate my honest and unbiased review.  No monetary compensation was received.

The Happy Helpers are on their way!

Summer is quickly coming to an end and I have been trying to provide the kids with some fun new activities and DVDs to watch.  Our summer has not been the most exciting because I have been spending a lot of time helping take care of my grandma.  With the start of school being less than 2 weeks away, I am trying to make these last two weeks memorable.

My family consists of Disney fanatics!  We love all the characters, but the girls and I hold a very special place for Minnie Mouse in our hearts!  The first stuffed character that Kat ever received was Minnie Mouse, and I carried that tradition on with the other girls.  When we were offered the chance to review Minnie's Happy Helpers, we jumped at the chance.

Here is a bit about the DVD:

When Minnie and Daisy aren’t racing around Hot Dog Hills, they’re helping their friends with fun, odd jobs as The Happy Helpers. And no task is too big or too small for them to tackle! With a quick spin in their Turn-Styler, the Happy Helpers are ready for anything that comes their way. Whether they’re babysitting an egg that’s about to hatch, planning the perfect luau for a client, or fixing London’s Big Ben just in time for tea, Minnie and Daisy are ready to go the extra mile, with a song and a smile!

Release Date: July 25, 2017
Ratings: TV-Y (US); G (CE/CF)
Run Time: Approximately 77 minutes (including bonus episode)
Aspect Ratio: 1.78:1 Widescreen (Enhanced for 16x9 Televisions)
Audio: 2.0 Dolby Digital
Languages: English & French
Subtitles: English SDH, French & Spanish

Episodes:         Egg-Xasperating!
                        Happy Hula Helpers!
                        Tea Time Trouble!
                        Happy Birthday Helpers!
                        Bed, Breakfast and Bungled!
                        Gone Fishin’!

Bonus Episode: Teed Off!

Our Thoughts:

The girls and I really enjoyed the DVD.  Since it is over an hour in length, it did take multiple plays for us to watch the entire thing.  Pickle and Pistol chose different episodes as their favorites, but both agreed that it was AWESOME!  The episodes are set up for the Disney Junior crowd, but even Kat and I enjoyed watching them,  They were not too "babyish" as Pickle was worried about.  This DVD includes a FREE exclusive customizable Happy Helpers Chart too!

Due to circumstances beyond my control, this review is late.  The good news is that this DVD has already been released!  If your kids are Disney fans, we recommend this to them!  This is a wonderful way to spend time with your kids and give them something special to watch!

All Saints Movie Info & Ticket Giveaway #AllSaintsFlyBy #FlyBy


Disclosure (in accordance with the FTC’s 16 CFR, Part 255:  “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising”):  Many thanks to Propeller Consulting, LLC for providing this prize for the giveaway.  Choice of winners and opinions are 100% my own and NOT influenced by monetary compensation.  I did view a trailer of this movie and received movie tickets in exchange for this review and post.

ALL SAINTS is based on the inspiring true story of salesman-turned-pastor Michael Spurlock (John Corbett), the tiny church he was ordered to shut down, and a group of refugees from Southeast Asia. Together, they risked everything to plant seeds for a future that might just save them all.

  • Genre: drama
  • Rating: PG
  • Run time: 1:48:00
  • Recommended ages: 10 and up
  • Release date: 8/25/17
  • Studio: Sony AFFIRM (Sony Pictures)

My grandma refuses to go to the movie theater anymore.  She always tells me that there are no decent movies out there, because they all want to show nastiness and be filled with "ugly talk."  A few months ago I started hearing some talk about a new Christian movie that would be hitting the theaters in August.  My interest was peaked and I had to learn more about it.  That movie is All Saints, which is being released on August 25th.


The first thing that caught my attention about this movie is the fact that it is based on a true story.  I watched the trailer and it really got me interested.  There is one part in the trailer that really hit me.  The Pastor states, "I had only 12 people in the church today and the old man says, "Jesus had 12 people.  He done all right.  Didn't he?"    That spoke volumes to me.  I just can't wait to see this movie!

Make sure you check out the official film site (http://www.allsaintsmovie.com/) where you can buy tickets, access video, photos, downloads, news, theaters and more.

Check out the trailer and let me know what you think.  One lucky Shelly's Bits and Pieces reader will even win 2 Fandango codes so they can get to see the movie for FREE!  Simply enter on the rafflecopter form below!  Only one entrant per mailing address, per giveaway.  If you have won a prize from our sponsor Propeller /FlyBy Promotions in the last 30 days on the same blog, you are not eligible to win.  Or if you have won the same prize on another blog, you are not eligible to win it again.  Winner is subject to eligibility verification.

SB are points you earn on Swagbucks, a website where you can get gift cards for the things you do online - I've gotten Amazon gift cards as well as Delta Airlines gift cards  with Swagbucks! These are the best days to start!

It takes place Wednesday, July 19th starting at 7am PDT and goes until 5pm PDT! All you have to do is look out for the Swag Code notifications, enter the code, and you earn SB (which can be redeemed for gift cards)! There will be 6 Swag Codes throughout the day worth a total of 40 SB!

Look out for the Swag Codes all over Swagbucks!

Sign up here to grab as many Swag Codes as you can and get your first gift card even faster!
