Steven Curtis Chapman: Glorious Unfolding CD

I was sent the items mentioned below for free in exchange for my personal and honest review. 

As a mother of four young children I worry about what their little ears are hearing. I know that my husband and I can monitor what they hear within our house but not so much while were in the car. Luckily we have some great local Christian Radio stations around us that help.

I love hearing my children sing their favorite songs and recently they have been singing more Christian songs that they hear at church. I love when were driving down the road and a song comes on and the boys yell "oh I know this song from church" and start belting it out. Makes this mamas heart fill with joy and happiness!

Safer Swimming with iSwimband

If you have children then I am sure you are aware of the danger there is anytime there is a pool around. Children seem to be drawn to water like a moth to a light at least I know mine are. I do not worry to much about the boys being around water because they have had swimming lessons and are comfortable with swimming on their own. However Sweet Pea loves to be in the water but does not know how to swim yet without assistance. 

Vtech: Innotab3 Plus Review

Recently Sweet Pea and the boys got the opportunity to review the InnoTab3 Plus. The Innotab 3 Plus is an educational tablet for children ages 3-9. The Vtech Innotab 3 Plus tablet offers access to more than 800 educator-endorsed, age and stage appropriate cartridges, software and apps that can be purchased and downloaded from the Vtech's learning lodge app store online.

My absence

I am so sorry for my absence lately! 

There is so much going on right now that is taking up my time. First off I had to go and have several tests done after I fell and got a concussion "happy to say that I am doing better now and tests came back OK".   With the kids back in school now school nights are filled with homework. Plus the older three have church on Wednesday nights and I go to a ladies bible study on Monday nights. We are trying to get our house all packed up for a upcoming move. 

So please be patient with me as I try to play catch up with things right now. My faith, family and health come first with me before work so please just be patient and stick around as great stuff is in the works. 

I have lots of great stuff coming up for you in the next couple months with a Big Giveaway Event and the 2014 Holiday Gift Guide.

Help Your Child Succeed

Are your kids struggling with school? Is it a  nightly struggle to get them to do their homework. Do you have a hard time getting them up in the morning and off to school because they dread going? Maybe all they need is a little help in reinforcing the skills that they are struggling with. That is where K5 Learning can help; K5 Learning is an online after-school study program for children in kindergarten through grade 5. They focus on building "reading, math and study skills" that will last a lifetime.

A Bakers Helper

If you love to bake cookies as much as I do then I am sure you have ran into the problem of them sticking the to pan. No matter how good of a baker you are sometimes your cookies and pans have a mind of their own at least mine do. But now that I have discovered my new "baking helper" a Silicone Baking Mat I no longer have anything I bake getting stuck to my pan.

Fitness Friday
<a href="" target="_blank"><img src=""></a>

I know it's been awhile since I have done a Fitness Friday post but I took the summer to spend time outside with my family. So while the weather was nice out I am sure you all did the same got outside and exercised in one form or another. Now that the weather is starting to cool off and we all know what's around the bend I figured now is a good time to start encouraging each other on our goals to a healthier self. I will be teaming up Danielle from "We Have It All" again on this great journey and we hope you will join us as well.

The Song In Theaters Soon...

A upcoming movie that I am really looking forward to comes out in theaters tomorrow 9/26/2014. The Song was inspired by the Song of Solomon and is a music-driven romantic drama about things we all purse in life love and meaning.

Movie Summary: Aspiring singer and songwriter Jed King is struggling to catch a break and escape the long shadow of his famous father when he reluctantly agrees to a gig at a local vineyard harvest festival.  Jed meets the vineyard owner's daughter, Rose, and a romance quickly blooms. Soon after their wedding, Jed writes Rose "The Song," which becomes a breakout hit. Sudden;y thrust into a life of stardom and a world of temptation, his life and marriage begin to fall apart.

This is a movie that I feel Jake and I will really both enjoy. I am hoping that Jake and I can sneak away one evening and go see this movie.

Snack Attack Relief

One thing that I have a love for is potato chips. I remember as a child when family would come to Florida to visit from Ohio they would bring Snyder of Berlin BBQ Chips with them. Now when we go to Florida to visit my mom we take the chips with us because a ham or bologna sandwich just isn't the same without them. 

Recently I got the opportunity to receive some of Snyder's wonderful chips to review. Snyder's has recently updated their packaging of their bags. I as most who are use to Snyder's chips are use to their bag being blue and silver. But I must say I am a fan of the new packaging that displays unique locations throughout Pennsylvania on the back of their 2.75oz bags of chips.  The barn photo seen front and center on each package reminds consumers of the barns seen doting the landscape throughout the Berlin, PA area.

Our Upcoming Minnie 1st Birthday

It's hard to believe that Angel will be 1 very soon and it's time to start thinking about her party. I have already decided on a Minnie Mouse themed party for her. We have her dress for the party and some of the party supplies all ready to go for her first birthday. I know her sister and brothers are getting excited for Angels' upcoming birthday. I on the other hand am sad that my baby girl is growing up faster then i'd like.

Little Snugglers for Greatest Comfort

"I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Huggies and Taregt. I received samples and a promotional item to facilitate my review."

One thing that I worry about all the time is if Angel is comfortable in her diapers. I cloth diapered Sweet Pea so I knew she was always nice and comfy and I know that I want to be comfortable in whatever I am wearing so I feel Angel should be just as comfortable. If you think about it your hug is the first thing your baby feels. So it only makes sense that we make sure the second hug feels just as good.

Meet Stephanie

When I first started writing this blog I could have never dreamed that I would one day be swamped with product reviews and other opportunities that I just couldn't handle it all myself. Over the past couple years Andersons Angels has really started to take off. Over the past few months I have become overwhelmed with blog work and medical conditions that have arose so I have decided to add a contributor to my blog to help ease my workload. And so today I am very excited to introduce you to a lovely lady that I am very excited to be working with to bring my readers even more awesome reviews.

Obtain your Social Worker Degree

In order for the local communities across America to thrive, social workers must stay dedicated to their profession. Although some social workers may feel under-appreciated at times, their contribution to society is certainly not taken for granted. Here are some of the ways that social work makes a difference in the community. 

Helps to Reduce Abuse
Abuse still remains a major problem in this country. Although anyone can be the victim of abuse, women and children are especially at risk. It is the social worker’s job to make sure that the victims receive all of the help that is available. If a child is being abused by someone, the social worker will be able to help track down the perpetrator. Schools such as Case Western University train social workers to deal with a variety of different situations involving abuse.

Text Book Renting

If you have or are attending college then you know how expensive the text books can be. I wish I would have known more of my options while in College of how to get text books.  I bought as many books used as I could to save a little bit of money. I was unaware at that time that you were able to rent the text books to use while in College. Now that I am aware of this great option I want to share the information with everyone so they can save as well. Campus Book Rentals is a great site where you can rent your text books.

Keep Charged on the Go

Do you hate when your out and about and your phone or IPad/Kindle dies? How about when your kids play games on your phone while your out and drains the battery. I know both situations occur frequently for me and if I am not at home or in my car then I can't charge either device. Now thanks to the Wusic power bank I can keep my stuff charged no matter where I am at.
