Merry Mail 3-8-12

Don't forget to spring forward this weekend!

I am hosting a giveaway. All you have to do to be eligible is leave a comment on this post. I'd love it if you would consider following me on either Facebook or by email (you can do both of these on the sidebar), but it is not a requirement to win the prize. The winner will be announced on April 1st (no foolin').

What is the prize you ask? A DVD of the 180 movie. This movie is thought-provoking look at Hitler and the infanticide that is happening all around us today. It also has a great segment of the Way of the Master street witnessing which is a great way to evangelize. You can watch this video free online and the reason that I am giving one away is to spread the word. I am hoping that you will not only watch the movie, but you will pass it along to your friends and family so they can watch as well. I do not get anything out of this except the joy of hopefully impacting someone's life for God's glory.

Six Sisters has a recipe for Cinnabon Cinnamon Roll Cake. I cannot wait to try this and hope that it will work with our dairy and egg substitutions. If so, it is going to be our new yummy breakfast surprise for Easter and Christmas (and any other non-holiday in between). From the looks of this picture, I think you're gonna want to be at our house this Easter morning. I can almost taste it!

X is for X-ray looks like a super cool (and educational) app for the iPhone or iPad. Thanks Mom for passing this one along.

I recently took an online course through Blogelina and was pleasantly surprised. She has so many helpful ideas for your blog (if you have one). If you are interested in what you may learn over at Blogelina Products & Services has to offer, you should check it out! This skeptic was very surprised!

World Magazine has a great article about Kirk Cameron (remember Growing Pains) and how he is being slandered by many over his interview on Piers Morgan's Show. This is a great article and great reminder that our world is moving farther and farther away from God, which means we are moving closer and closer to the time when Jesus will return.

Roo Magazine is a new online magazine put together by Kirk Cameron's younger sister, Candace Cameron Bure (remember DJ from Full House) and has a great article on how to Wake up Refreshed and Start Your Day Off Right. I liked the friendly reminder not to eat too much the night before so that your stomach isn't working all night long to digest all that crap food (that's in my words, not theirs. Their writers are much more eloquent than I could ever hope to be).

Real Simple has a fantastic tip! Check this out! You can put a mason jar on a blender to make a single serving of your favorite smoothie. Fantastic!!

I love good, thought-provoking quotes. Here are a couple I have enjoyed finding this week:

"And people who do not know the Lord ask why in the world we waste our lives as missionaries. They forget that they too are expending their lives…and when the bubble has burst they will have nothing of eternal significance to show for the years they have wasted."
- Nate Saint

"It's amazing what can be accomplished if you don't worry about who gets the credit."
- Clarence W. Jones


  1. Thank you for this giveaway! If I win, I plan on lending it out to my non-believing family and friends. You have a beautiful family.

  2. I'd love to see 180! and then pass it along.... Thank you! I'm going to follow you now and read your other posts! :)

  3. I would love to share this movie with others!


I love to hear from my readers so if you are thinking something that is beneficial and profitable (which does not mean you have to agree with me, but at least be nice), then I would love to hear from you!
