Devotion with Kids

Happy Sunday!!

In August, our neighbors blessed us with this book called "Jesus Calling". What a blessing it has been!!!
 It's  365 days of devotion that speaks to your child about their walk with Christ and it also helps build an intimate relationship with the Lord through daily time with him. It speaks as if Jesus is directly speaking to your child. My kids look forward to reading their devotion every night.  Before bed, we read the devotion and scripture and discuss what we read. After we discuss, we all pray and  really talk to God about everything. It's amazing seeing my kids have their own relationship with God.

When I was pregnant with both of my kids, I made a vow to God that I would teach them about the word of God and I'm so thankful that I have kept my word to Christ. I continue to pray that they will be Godly leaders and bring people to his kingdom.

To all the parents out there, I urge you to take time with your kids and teach them about our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  We are living in a cruel world and it's time that our kids start praying and building their own relationship with him.

If you are interested in this book, you can find it at your local Christian book store or you can order on Amazon. It's a great book that your kids will love!!!

They also have an adult version as well! Happy reading!!!

Ready to try new Hair Products

Lately, I've been getting bored with using the same ole products and I'm ready to try something new. I'm really hoping that I will see better results with my hair for styling and growth, but I usually come back to my old faithful.  There are 2 products that I want to replace. The first product is the Herbal Essence Hello Hydration. I never thought I would want to get rid of my favorite rinse out conditioner, but I would love to have more hair products with natural ingredients.  Natural hair products have been on the rise, and companies are really getting better with making natural ingredients top priority.  My natural hair is what inspired me to also read ingredients in what we eat, but for some reason I can't let go of my Herbal Essence. It has such a great consistency that gives my hair the slip that it needs, but I'm on the hunt to find a similar product with better ingredients.  The second product is the Generic Paul Mitchell leave in conditioner. Now this one hurts! To me, I think this is one of the best leave in conditioners out there. It does so much for my hair, but looking at the ingredients, I'm not sure if it's good or not. I have been with this leave in conditioner for the majority of my journey and so far so good, but like I said I would like to see more natural ingredients.

The first new product I would like to try is the Shea Moisture low porosity conditioner.  Shea Moisture has really done a great job with their line and I am every excited to try it. I love their shampoo!

As far as a leave in product, this product isn't really new, but I've decided to test out the Giovanni Direct leave in again. Now, I'm not sure if this will last, because I still went back to my Generic PM leave in. If this doesn't work out for me, I will continue to add castor oil to the Generic PM leave in.

I know I only said 2 products, but I'm also looking for a twist/braid butter that will help achieve a more defined look, so I'm also excited to try the Camille Rose Twisting Butter!!

Stay tuned for my results!!
