Crossway was founded as a nonprofit organization in 1938, and their goal is to offer Christ-centered products to honor our Savior. My husband typically reads the KJV Bible, but ESV is my preference. I figured he could at least give this one a try.
I’m super excited about this giveaway. My daughter and I are actually reviewing Illuminating Literature currently, and I’ll have that review up soon. So far, my impressions of the program are positive, but I’ll have more on that later.
To celebrate the release of Illuminating Literature: When Worlds Collide, we are joining with Writing with Sharon Watson to bring you an incredible giveaway!
I was so glad to be asked to be a part of this giveaway. I believe that so many churches and parents would benefit greatly from it.
A Parent Training Center is a church that intentionally trains parents, providing resources and tools both for the discipleship of believers and for evangelism to families in the community.
The National Center for Biblical Parenting offers resources, and practical support to help you become the Parent Training Center God designed. The Equipping Program contains a number of mobilization tools to help you advance to the next level in your parent discipleship ministry.
With this program, you’ll interact with experts as well as other pastors and church leaders. Receive personalized guidance for your unique church situations. Use resources that will equip your parents to reach their children’s hearts.
To introduce your church to the Parent Training Center concept, we are hosting an awesome giveaway that includes some of our best church and parent training resources, along with a $100 gift certificate to the National Center for Biblical Parenting store. Here’s what your church could win:
Parenting Is Heart Work DVD Church Kit ($199.95 value)
Equip parents to touch the hearts of their kids with this biblically-based, practical training program. Parents and teachers of children 2-18 years will benefit from this life-changing curriculum. The Parenting is Heart Work Church Kit includes:
• Eight 35-minute video sessions
• A Leader’s Guide with reproducible pages for attendees
• A copy of the 256-page book Parenting is Heart Work
The videos were filmed before a live audience of parents and children. Using drama, Bible stories, and lots of illustrations, Dr. Scott Turansky and Joanne Miller, RN, BSN will energize you and provide you with tools you need to strengthen your family. Use this eight-part video series in your church, small group, or even in your own family. Many times parents have to change the way they parent in order for children to change the way they live.
The Family Toolbox DVD Church Kit ($179.95 value)
he Family Toolbox has 8 lessons for parents, teens, or both in a small group setting. Each one has a 1-2 minute scene of a family living life and experiencing common challenges in their relationships. A discussion guide prompts dialog among parents and a 10-minute teaching session featuring Dr. Scott Turansky and Joanne Miller, RN, BSN gives practical tools to use right away.
As the group works through the lessons parents learn:
• How to focus on the heart instead of just behavior
• The cues you give that tell your children when you mean business
• Practical ways to remove conflict from the problems of family life
• How to end correction times with impact
• A tool for maximizing heart change in the correction process
• The value of teaching kids to accept no as an answer
• Ways to reduce anger episodes in children
The Family Toolbox is designed for families with children ten years old and up and is an excellent resource for small groups. Each lesson can be done in 20-30 minutes, but could also lead to discussion and dialog lasting an hour or more.

I know I’m not alone in loving Christmas. Think about it…where would we be if Christ hadn’t come? Just as God blessed us with the gift of His Son’s life, we bless others with gifts of some sort, whether it be a tangible gift, or something like a donation to a special charity. I don’t have a particular favorite Christmas year, but I get so excited for every Christmas. Our family has been so blessed by so many, and my husband and I love being able to bless our children. No, it isn’t all about gifts, but admit it…that is a very fun part! It’s so much fun as a parent to feel your children’s anticipation of waking up early on Christmas Day, tearing into their gifts, and then being ready to pass out by noon. Our yearly tradition is to spend part of Christmas Day with my husband’s grandparents and some extended family. I look forward to this every year. I would love to hear what traditions your family has for Christmas. Do you host dinner, or perhaps travel far out of town?
I’m so pleased to be able to participate in this Christmas Blessing Giveaway! I know there are many families out there who could use an extra blessing this Christmas. My prayer is that you will pass this along to your friends, and of course, enter yourself!

I love finding new products for my family, especially when they work! I heard about Truly’s Natural Deodorant, and knew that I wanted to try it. I contacted the company, and received 6 sample size tubs of deodorant. One for each member of the family! The sample sizes are very generous, so I was very impressed with that. The regular deodorant doesn’t have an added scent, but it’s made with virgin coconut oil, so it smells just like a coconut! I love how natural the ingredients are, and there are only a few, plus they are all edible (don’t eat it, though, because baking soda doesn’t taste good): Organic Coconut Oil, Powdered Sugar (sugar, cornstarch), Baking soda, Beeswax. That’s it, really!
It only takes about a pea-sized amount of deodorant for each pit. At first, I was worried that I’d have greasy pits, or that it may leave stains on my shirts. No way. My skin was left so soft, and not greasy at all, and no shirt stains! My husband, who is a profuse sweater, tried the deodorant as well. He was skeptical, because he usually uses the store deodorant that keeps you from sweating for like, 2 days, or something. Even he was impressed with Truly’s Natural Deodorant. Even on his days off he sweats a lot, but he used some on a Sunday, and said that he didn’t notice any crazy sweating. I was amazed! The kids love it, too. Of course, they love to sniff it, because it does smell so yummy! When I run out, I plan to keep buying Truly’s Natural Deodorant. I love it so hard!
Truly’s Natural Deodorant has offered to give away 1 tub to a lucky winner! Enter via the Rafflecopter below. Good luck, and thanks for stopping by.
