None Like Him by Jen Wilkin Book Review and Giveaway




I have only made it through a few of the chapters in this book, because my life is so crazy busy, but I really wanted to share with you all.

I know that God is different from me. I always have, but I was intrigued by this book and to dig a little deeper into some of the characteristics of God.


There are some really great stories that being this home to me. I like how the writer was able to capture everyday moments and turn them in a way to show the stark differences.

It is amazing how when we think that our lives are just about us, we can turn what we are going through, what we are doing, what we see, into an avenue to learn more about the difference between God and man.

At the end of each characteristic chapter are questions that will make you think harder, and dig deeper into the realm of differences between us and to bring us to a better understanding of why these are so very important for us to know.


I am excited to continue reading through this and spending time on the questions. To dig deeper and to open my heart to learn  and grow more, and to build my relationship even stronger then ever.

This would make a great book for a ladies group Bible Study as well, and it would be interesting to hear others points of view!!

I have a copy to give away and I'm going to make this an easy entry

Check out their Facebook page

Pampers Celebrates the Small Moments #BetterForBaby

Disclosure: I am a P&Gmom/mamanP&G. As part of my affiliation with this group I receive products and special access to P&G events and opportunities. The opinions on this blog are my own.


With 5 kids now ages 7-19, I can remember back to the early days...

The smell of their heads, the wiggly little toes, the milestones that they each would reach at different moments.

I miss it, though not enough to have another;)

I love this video that Pampers has released, showing the little moments in our children's lives and how much they impact even us, as parents.

To be honest, I was very close to tears watching this video...and was humming along with it as well...

You can check out the video here:




The video reminds me of the nights that I gave up to feed, to rock, to cuddle.

It also reminds me of how fast time is flying...My oldest is almost 20!

What do you do to make life #BetterForBaby?  Tweet it out and share with everyone!  What a great way to celebrate those moments that we may take for granted - CELEBRATE THE MOMENTS!!

On the YouTube page, you can find links to see how Pampers makes life #BetterForBaby


Do You Know a Cold Weather Hero?

How has this winter been for you?  I can honestly say that I haven't enjoyed the cold.

Most days it was just too cold to enjoy the snow and ice.

It has also made me appreciate my "indoor" job a little more.

But there are some amazing people out there, who know how important it is for us to have our garbage picked up, our kids helped on the way to school, our streets plowed or our city kept safe, no matter what the weather.

As part of the P&G Mom program, I was given the opportunity to gift a Tide set (A Tide Scarf, Coffee Travel Mug, and Tide Cold Water Detergent) to a #TideColdHero, and when I saw this I knew exactly who I would gift it to!

My parents have been an amazing part of my life, and not only do they impact myself and the kids, but they have taken on the role of impacting their neighbourhood families as well.

Both my parents are crossing guards in their neighbourhood, and I hear stories about how their mornings or afternoons went, how they conversed with the kids and parents, they know the different things that impact these families as well.

I think that crossing guards are often overlooked and just expected, but they choose to spend their time, a few hours a day, risking their lives - drivers aren't always observant; braving the elements - whether it is frigid -35 or sweltering hot towards the end of the year; and taking responsibility for all of our kids - to help them cross the road safely AND impact their social lives, and they choose to do this job, not for the money, but because they recognize the need and strive to fulfill it.

So, to my parents, to all the crossing guards, who risk their lives and brave the extreme cold/heat, THANK YOU!!  Thank you for taking that role in my childs life, when I can't be there to help them get to school.  Thank you for teaching my kids the social aspect of multi-generational relationships. Thank you for doing this selfless job and seeing it as an opportunity!!

You Are My Cold Weather Heroes!!
