Book Review: Adventure Bible

This week I got to review the

NKJV Adventure Bible

edited by Lawrence O. Richards. 
I was very impressed!  It's a very inviting book with a brightly colored hardback cover.  It's sturdy and ready for wear and tear.  As described by the publisher, it has great features throughout the Bible:
"Life in Bible Times - Articles and illustrations describe what life was like in ancient days;
"People in Bible Times" - Offers close-up looks at amazing people of the Bible;
"Did You Know?" - Provides interesting facts that help you better understand God's Word;
"Let's Live It!" - Includes hands-on activities to help you apply biblical truths to your life;
"Words to Treasure" - Highlights great verses to memorize
Each book of the Bible has  a one page introduction describing the author, the book's purpose, and overview of the book's content, key players in the book, and when the writing took place.
There are 20 brightly colored safari themed pages scattered throughout the Bible with tidbits such as a reading plan for kids, who was Jesus, famous children in the Bible, how to pray, and a timeline of Jesus' life.
he back of the Bible has resources you would expect in an adult study Bible, but designed for kids:
8 pages of color maps and a map index
a concordance for help with finding verses
a subject index for help navigating topics in the Bible
It's a great Bible for 8-12 year old boys and girls.  I would recommend it as a gift for any child that wants to learn more about the Bible!
I received this book as a gift from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

Children's Prayers During Meals

The Armistead family taught our children a lovely blessing to sing at the dinner table. It is sung to the tune of the children's classic song, Are You Sleeping?

God our Father
God our Father
Once Again
Once Again
We bow our heads to thank you
Bow our heads to thank you

We love this blessing, and we've recently adapted it to involve younger children and guests. Instead of everyone singing each phrase twice, we sing it as an 'echo prayer'. One child leads the song, starting with the first phrase, "God our Father". The rest of the table echoes. Then the leader leads the second phrase , "once again", before waiting for the table to echo. And so forth, until the whole blessing is sung.

It's an easy way to remind our children (and ourselves) to give thanks to our Provider and Sustainer throughout the day.

Goody Bags for Marriage Retreat - please share your ideas!

Reader Question:
I am in charge of creating 74 goody bags for an upcoming marriage retreat for my church, and I am in desperate need for some frugal, creative ideas on what I could put in these bags. In the past I know people have put little candy bars, a bag of microwave popcorn, a couple of packs of hot chocolate, tea bags etc so I was looking for ideas that might be something similar, but maybe a little different too. Would you have any fun thoughts on this?

A Few Ideas:
Visit - Meredith does a fantastic time being incredibly hospitable on a budget.Our women's retreat coordinators wrapped the following things in a cellophanebag: a mininotebook, a pen, a candle, peppermints, chocolate kisses,and a colored paper quote/scripture. A friend just suggested packing candies that correspond to questions: an almond joy - share a joyful moment in your marriage, a hershey kiss - something about your first kiss, snickers - laughs, lifesavers - when your…

26 Ideas For Lego Storage Containers

My two boys LOVE legos, so they naturally end up scattering lego creations and random lego pieces throughout the house.  Last weekend, we converted their closet to be a LEGO WORLD.  Now they can store lego (and knex) pieces in their lego world, they have instructions for all of their kits in a ziplock bag, and they have a place to display their favorite ships.  And I have a mostly lego-free kitchen and living room!!

I just stumbled upon a great article with ideas for storing legos, if you have similar struggles in your house!  Check this out:  26 Ideas For Lego Storage Containers
