My Swagbucks Story #ad

Several years ago, one of my friends referred me to Swagbucks.  I have been reaping the benefits ever since!

Every day I spend time on Swagbucks.  I complete the daily To Do List so I can earn my bonus points.  You can watch videos, search online, take polls, and complete offers to earn plenty of SB.  Since I joined Swagbucks, I have earned over $1,000.

Armed With Truth Temporary Scripture Tattoo Review #armedwithtruth #ad

Disclosure:   We received free product to facilitate our honest, unbiased review.  All opinions stated are those of the Shelly's Bits and Pieces family and have not been influenced by anyone.

As children, I remember my brother and I begging our parents to buy us tattoos.  We loved to put them all over our arms and legs.  I can still picture the silly little cartoon characters.  Recently, I was offered the opportunity to review Armed With Truth Temporary Scripture Tattoos and I must say, I did feel all the giddiness of my childhood, along with the extreme happiness that these tattoos meant something.

Armed With Truth offers several 17 different scripture packs.  Each of these packs contains 10 separate verses as tattoos.  The packages are, Fearless, Identity, Itentity (KJV), Missions, Kids, Christ Like, Father God, Live Intentionally, Transformed Mind, Unified with God, Athlete, Change Makers, Comforted, Best of Ephesians, I AM, Graduates, and Blessed (the Beatitudes).  They also have designer tattoos and Greek tattoos.

Armed With Truth provides us with a unique and uplifting way to share God's Word, truth and promises.  The temporary tattoos are safe and non-toxic, made in the USA and use soy based ink.  The tattoos generally last 3-5 days, but vary widely depending on lifestyle, skin type, what other skin products you are using. Some people only get one day’s use other’s have them last over a week. But the median is somewhere between 3-5 days.  After my tattoo had dried, I lightly applied a small amount of lotion on it, and I was able to share my tattoo for 5 days!

Right now, Armed With Truth has a giveaway going on.  Simply enter here:

God Loves Mommy & Me Review

Disclosure:  We received a copy of this book to facilitate our honest review.

Reading is very important in our home.  Thankfully, my love of reading has been passed down to my little ones.  One of my favorite moments has always been reading with my kids at bedtime.  We received this adorable book, God Loves Mommy & Me by Bonnie Rickner Jensen and illustrated by Laura Watkins, to review recently.  

This board book is really cute and it is something I have been reading almost every night since we received it.  One of our favorite parts of the book reads, "Mommy loves me so much! She cheers me up when I’m sad, she kisses my boo-boos, she sings me lullabies at bedtime, and she prays for me. I love Mommy, and God does too!"  We love that it reminds the kids that I pray for them and that gives us other things to talk about.

God Loves Mommy and Me will delight your little ones as you read about the sweet connection mothers and their children share. Snuggle up as you look at adorable illustrations of a mommy bunny and her little bunny sharing the day’s adventures, and read about the loving relationship God gives mommies and their children. Little ones revel in one-on-one time with each parent, and the phrase “Mommy and me” is a favorite with toddlers!

God Loves Mommy and Me is a celebration of strong, loving mothers, cherished little ones, and the God who loves them all. Perfect for story time, bedtime, or any time, this sweet board book celebrates God’s gift of family.

There is a giveaway going on until May 8, 2017 for this book. Click HERE to enter.  Go enter today and you might be a lucky winner!  If you don't want to wait, you can click this LINK and buy the book today!

Foundation For Fighting Blindness ~ AMD Information

Disclosure:  This is a sponsored post.  I fully believe in the information and I felt it was important to share!

As I am getting older, I am finding myself realizing that there are many things included in being healthy.  One thing that I have found that gets left behind is eye health.  I have heard my brother say on many occasions that he sees just fine so there is no need in getting his eyes checked.  That was the same way he felt about going to his medical doctor before he had to have a quadruple heart bypass.  I'm hoping he will take the time to download this information packet and learn more about AMD!

Never heard about AMD?  AMD is Age-related macular degeneration and it is an eye disease that causes the loss of central vision. Specifically, AMD causes degeneration of light-sensitive cells in the macula, the central portion of the retina which enables us to perceive fine visual detail. The macula helps us with activities such as reading, driving and threading a needle.

Are you having problems with any of those things?  Download the PDF packet so you can learn more about it.  You can click this LINK to download today.  No email is required!

Country Crush DVD Review & Giveaway

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

About Country Crush:  From director Andrew Cymek, this heartwarming, and sometimes heartbreaking, film tells the story of city-girl Nancy Taylor (Madeline Merlo), an aspiring singer who is struggling to launch her career and navigate a relationship with an opportunistic music producer. While on her way to a party out in the country with her best friend Ainsley (Sophie Tweed Simmons), her car breaks down and a good-hearted and handsome stranger named Charlie Bishop (Munro Chambers) shows up with a tow. Sparks fly between Nancy and Charlie, two young people searching for love, both unsure of the paths they’re on.

Charlie and his sister-in-law Katherine (Jana Kramer) have recently said goodbye to his older brother Cody, who has shipped out to the Middle East for another tour of duty. Katherine is facing all the love, worry and waiting that accompanies the deployment of a spouse while also being there for Charlie as he faces his own disappointments and loneliness. As Charlie decides to pursue a relationship with Nancy, and Nancy struggles with decisions about her career, Charlie sees with new eyes the importance in staying true to oneself, and begins to question his own choices. While their courtship is in turmoil, his brother’s sacrifices serves as a reminder of the price of love when it is lost.

Our Thoughts:  When I first realized this was a musical, I was not sure how it would be.  Boy, was I surprised!!  This movie was so heart warming and it just made my evening.  My daughter, Kat, and I watched this movie together one evening and it really spoke to us.  The country music was great and it went perfect with the movie and what was happening.  I am so happy that we were able to review this movie!  Country Crush has been watched several times since our initial movie night, and each person we watch it with has enjoyed it as well.

This movie is exclusively available at Walmart and right now, it is $9.96.  Give it a shot!  You'll enjoy it whether you enjoy country music or not.  Would you like to win a copy for yourself?  Simply enter on the rafflecopter form below!!
