*I cannot wait to see this movie! This song has a very special place in my heart. It was the song we had playing on low the day my mom went "home home" (Heaven). This was her favorite song, and I get tears and goosebumps everything I think about or hear this song. It will be good to see the movie about what inspired the song.*

It’s the song that brings ultimate hope to so many … often in the midst of life’s most challenging moments. Amazingly, the song was written in mere minutes by MercyMe lead singer Bart Millard. In reality, those lyrics took a lifetime to craft.

Although he found faith at a young age, life wasn’t easy for Bart. He leaned into an active imagination and his love of music as escapes from a troubled home life. As he grew older, Bart turned to football in hopes of somehow connecting with his abusive father. But a career-ending injury—combined with the vision of a teacher who saw unlimited potential—set Bart on a musical pathway.

Chasing a dream while running from broken relationships with father and Shannon, his childhood sweetheart, Bart hits the road on an old, decrepit tour bus with his new band MercyMe—named for his grandmother’s favorite expression. With the guidance of a grizzled music-industry insider, the band begins a journey none of them could ever have imagined.

I CAN ONLY IMAGINE stars J. Michael Finley, Madeline Carroll, Trace Adkins, Priscilla C. Shirer, with Cloris Leachman and Dennis Quaid.

{{Book Review}} My Rad Life: A Journal by Kat Schatz

I received this book free in exchange for an honest opinion. I am not required to write a positive review. All opinions expressed are my own.

An inspiring, empowering journal that encourages its owners to think, create, reflect, and explore their own radness.

A companion to the New York Times bestsellers Rad American Women A-Z and Rad Women Worldwide, this cool guided journal draws from a number of the "rad" women featured in both books, while also including a diverse range of new women, all of whom come to life via inspirational quotes and paper cut portraits. Blank pages invite doodling, lined pages encourage writing, and a collection of thought-provoking prompts encourage users to get to know themselves better by recording their thoughts and ideas on paper.

*My Review*
I'm always on the lookout for new journals and such for my oldest daughter (14). When I saw this, I had to have it because I knew she would love it. I'm not kidding when I say this is a heavy-duty, sturdy journal! I would say that the pages are made of heavy stock paper.
There is no shortage of blank pages in this book! Even if she doesn't use this journal to write stuff in, she can use it to doodle in. This is great for pre-teens to older teens and would make a great gift!

SeaQuest Interactive Aquarium in Ft. Worth Texas | Ridgemar Mall

*Disclaimer* I received free admission for myself and my family in exchange for my honest opinion. All opinions expressed are 100% my own.

I recently signed up to visit SeaQuest Interactive Aquarium. I had NO idea it was in the Ridgemar Mall in Ft. Worth. I'm not sure where I thought it was, but I didn't think it would be there. lol

Anyway, We drove over to the mall and we were greeted right away by employees. I told the guy who I was, and he let us back. We did pay $10 + tax for 4 tokens so we could feed the animals.

After that was taken care of, we started on our way through the aquarium. The first thing we saw were caiman alligators. Being from SW Louisiana, Alligators hold a special place in my heart...no matter WHERE they are from. I used to hold "baby" gators, about the size in this picture all the time when I lived at home in Louisiana.


We made our way to the other exhibits after I got over being excited about the alligators. We saw Iguanas, Capybaras, & Parakeets. There was an employee by the Capabra pin. I was only joking when I said I wanted to go and play with them...but they let me! Another lady went in with me, told me the rules and where to sit. There are three brothers. Alvin, Simon, & Theodore. They are 2 months old and absolutely ADORABLE!!

I learned so much about these babies. They are extremely curious. They saw the lady come in and thought she had their bottles (They are weening them off of the bottle). She's like their momma to them. They were climbing all over her, it was too cute. I got to pet all three of them.

There were so many awesome creatures, from fish to snakes & lizards, to my favorites....the rays! As an aspiring Marine Biology student, naturally the rays and sharks (and other fish) were my favorites. I used one of my tokens to feed the rays, I even touched the raw fish to feed them! I loved every min of it. My heart is happiest when I'm around Marine animals & the ocean.

Below are more photos. I have more, but those are on my personal FB page.

After we got home, I decided to call and see about applying to work in the marine part of the aquarium...and after talking with the lady for a few mins and telling her about wanting to become a Marine Biologist, she asked if I'd be interested in interviewing to become a volunteer intern! Naturally I said "YES!!" I meet with her very soon to go over everything and talk more about it. Doors are opening up and I cannot be more thankful.

New CD from Kutless | Alpha/Omega

Disclosure (in accordance with the FTC’s 16 CFR, Part 255:  “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising”):  Many thanks to Propeller Consulting, LLC for providing this prize for the giveaway.  Choice of winners and opinions are 100% my own and NOT influenced by monetary compensation.  I did receive a sample of the product in exchange for this review and post. 

*My Review*
I absolutely LOVE Kutless. I remember listening to them when I was a teen. Before listening to the CD, I knew all but 2-3 of the songs, but I never knew they were the ones who sang them! My all time favorite song on the CD is "Your Love Awakens Me".

My 8yr old loves "Strong Tower" and "Your Love Awakens Me". It makes my heart happy to hear her sing these songs.

About Kutless:
Since signing to BEC Recordings in 2001, Kutless has transformed from a new rock band to a staple artist in the industry that has multi-format, top-charting hits, sold millions of records and more than eight million streams. Launched by original members Jon Micah Sumrall (lead vocals) and guitarist James Mead, the band formed first as a modern rock/worship band at Warner Pacific College in Portland in 2000. Kutless has two RIAA Gold-selling albums for Strong Tower and Live from Portland. The band has had 12 No. 1 radio singles across all formats including their major hits "Strong Tower,” "What Faith Can Do" and "Carry Me To The Cross.”

After more than 15 years together and reaching fans around the world, Kutless continues to be focused on sharing the Gospel with a younger generation that is searching for answers.
“We really believe that music can make a difference in people’s lives,” shares Jon Micah Sumrall. “Music is an incredibly powerful tool that can break down walls and allow us to communicate a message of hope to people who may not listen otherwise. We are still recording and performing because we really do believe it makes a difference. We hear stories all the time from people who share with us how a concert or a song has radically impacted their life, and it’s these types of testimonies that keep us going year after year.”

In 2012, Kutless formed EOTA Ministries (End of The Age) to expand their evangelistic outreach around the globe. EOTA is the non-profit arm that aids Kutless in hosting large, free outreach concerts and events. In 2015, they partnered with other organizations to bring concerts to Kiev, Ukraine and other cities for six events - the largest of their kind in that country. The next year, Kutless returned to 11 cities in Ukraine as well as in Belarus, a communist country, where more than 100,000 heard the Gospel and over 40,000 commitments to Christ.
With their upcoming album ALPHA / OMEGA, Kutless has created a collection of rock and worship songs of both original and cover tracks that are true to who the band has been for the last 17 years. They wanted to create a project that would engage the Christian community and have the greatest impact. The songs are true to who the band is at their core - rock and worship. ALPHA / OMEGA features a new version of “Strong Tower” as well as the debut radio single “King of My Heart.”

Zoono Hand Sanitizer

*Disclaimer* This post is sponsored by Shoplet & Zoono hand sanitizer. I am not paid for this post, but I did receive a pack of six (6) sample bottles in exchange for my honest opinion.

I can always count on Shoplet to have the latest in all things related to Cleaning, Medical, Office supplies, Office furniture and more! Recently I was sent six (6) little bottles of Zoono hand sanitizer.

Zoono is unlike any other hand sanitizer I've ever used before. Unlike traditional sanitizer Zoono is not alcohol based, it's water based! It is supposed to be fragrance free, but I found that it still has a slight scent to it.

We have been sick later, so I gave each of our girls a bottle to keep near/with them, my husband I have a bottle with us, and I keep the 6th bottle in my car for my riders (lyft driver) to use if they wish.

If you are in the market for a new hand sanitizer, I recommend that you check out Zoono & make the switch today!! I know I'm glad I did.
