Under the Sea Children's Bible Giveaway & Review #FlyBy #UnderTheSea

Hey y'all!! Hope you had a beautiful Easter Sunday!  I have a brand-spankin' new review and giveaway to share with you today!

Check out this engaging new children's Bible!  The Under the Sea Holy Bible, NIrV  is made just for kids ages 6 - 10. Fun underwater scenes and sparkling fish adorn the inserts inside the Bible, while the cover is decorated with foil and glittery sea creatures!  I love the colors and images on the cover - so much fun!

The coloful inserts highlight themes of God's love and God's caring for us.  One of them shares what prayer is, then on the back it shares The Lord's Prayer.   Another insert shows all of the books of the Bible. I really liked the insert that tells about famous children in the Bible, and then shows you where to find them in the Bible.  And of course, there is an insert about The Ten Commandments for kids.

At the back of this Bible you'll find a dictionary and an index of Great Bible Stories.  This is a wonderful first Bible for your elementary-aged kiddos!    I love the dictionary feature, and the illustrated inserts really encourage kids to dig in and read!

You can read more about this Bible here.

Ready to get your own copy?  Buy it online at Barnes & Noble,  Walmart, and Family Christian Store.

And....I have one copy to give away to a lucky reader, too!

Just enter through the Rafflecopter widget below, and I'll announce the winner on the 7th. Make sure you complete the mandatory entry first, otherwise no other entries are valid.

If you enjoyed this post,  I'd appreciate you sharing with your friends on FB, Twitter, etc.  (There are buttons at the bottom of the blog post just for that!) Thank you for stopping by!

Update from my sponsor on 3/17  ***Unfortunately at this time the PEEPS® PEEPSTERS®, PEEPS®  Lime Delight Flavored Marshmallow, PEEPS® Chocolate Mousse Flavored Marshmallow Bunnies, and PEEPS®  Sugar Free Marshmallow Chicks are unavailable.  ***  

I adore these PEEPS® products!  The bright colors are just perfect for Easter baskets.  The flavored PEEPS® are fun and unique for Easter treats.   I had so much fun making up a few baskets, then cooking up some colorful, delicious Easter treats for my family to try.

We absolutely loved the Orange Delight Peeps - they are dipped in orange fudge - yum!  David & Katie both liked the sour watermelon flavor PEEPS®.  Dad loves the Hot Tamales, and I really like the Easter Treats from Mike And Ike.  These will be fun to stick in baskets for Easter morning! Who wouldn't love finding these PEEPS® and Company treats in their Easter basket?

Some of the treats I made that are pictured in the collage above: I dipped the bottom of some PEEPS® in white chocolate or bittersweet chocolate and added Spring sprinkles from Wilton.  Some were put on cake pop sticks and displayed in a mason jar that had a big tulle bow tied on it.  Others were placed on graham crackers that had been dipped in chocolate. On some of those I added coconut flakes dyed with green food coloring.  Others had sprinkles. Pop them in the fridge til they harden up a bit before serving.  These are a great substitute for s'mores!

I also crushed some graham crackers. Next, I dipped a few of the bunnies and chicks in white or bittersweet chocolate, then rolled them in the cracker crumbs.  Another tasty alternative to making s'mores!

The jellybeans and hot tamales are perfect for filling vases, or jars.  Then add some PEEPS® on sticks for a cute display, or let a chick roost on top, like I did. You can display the rainbow pop and the chocolate dipped PEEPS® as is - they are so cute! The possibilities are endless, so get creative and decorate for Spring!

Right now you can get a 20% discount code that you can use towards your next purchase, too!  Use code EASTERTREATS (Code expires on April 15 - no minimum purchase required)

I am excited to give away a selection of PEEPS® candies to one of you lucky PEEPS! (See what I did there?!)  No plush or non-food merchandise will be included in this prize pack - just an assortment of their yummy candy! 

Enter via the Rafflecopter widget below - Good luck!

The Young Messiah AMC Movie Ticket Giveaway!

The Young Messiah Movie ~ IN THEATERS MARCH 11TH 

The Young Messiah is not just a story about Jesus. It’s the story about Jesus and his family. Heading into this film, the producers knew this was a fresh take on Jesus and the Holy family. The filmmakers quickly realized Mary and Joseph faced many of the same problems as parents today. As parents we are always faced with difficult decisions on what's best for our children.

Inspired by Scripture and rooted in history, this story imagines a year in the boyhood of Jesus. Remaining true to the character of Jesus revealed in the Bible, The Young Messiah is an inspirational story about the childhood of the Savior for the whole family.

When the mystery of Jesus’ divinity begins to unfold in His early years, He turns to His parents for answers. But Mary and Joseph, in an effort to protect their child, are afraid to reveal all they know. How do you explain the ways of the world to its Creator? How do you teach the Teacher? How do you help the Savior who came to save you?

Follow the young Messiah as He and His family take the extraordinary journey from Egypt to Nazareth and on to Jerusalem – where His true identity and profound destiny are revealed.

Follow The Young Messiah on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram:

Watch the Parenting Featurette in the blog app below! 

One lucky winner will receive a pair of AMC movie theater passes to see The Young Messiah! Enter via Rafflecopter below.  Good luck!

Bluetooth Shower Speaker #SpeakStick Review

I was given the opportunity to review the Bluetooth Shower Speaker from Speakstick last month. As soon as he heard about this, my son claimed the speaker for himself! Even when the one I received turned out to be hot pink! He has used this more than I have and I can't tell you how happy it makes me to hear him singing along in the shower to his favorite music.  He LOVES this speaker.  He also brings it with him when we are running errands or on field trips so he can listen to the music on his iPad.

This speaker can be used with any bluetooth device. It's small and easy to carry along.  It has a suction cup for your shower or window, and it's waterproof.  Shipping is free, and this cute speaker comes with a lifetime guarantee, too!  We like that it doesn't need to be charged often - the battery life is great.  The company offers a page with how-to videos on everything from changing music to answering phone calls!

This speaker is very durable, the set up with other devices is simple and fast, and the sound quality is great.  We are enjoying this SpeakStick Bluetooth Shower Speaker, and look forward to using it for a long time!  Click here to purchase your Bluetooth Shower Speaker!

Disclaimer: I was provided with a speaker in order to facilitate this review.  No other compensation was received, and all opinions are my own.
