Blog Train: Wisdom

Faith Sisters Blog Train this month features a great scripture from James 1: 5 ->
If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

This scripture is also next year's youth theme at church.

I love this scripture not only for the historical context, but also for the promise of wisdom.

Review: Big Pillow Thing

My office mates and I thought this would be fun to rest on in the middle of our office.  The first thing I notice about it is the truly vibrant color.  It comes with a small bag you can carry like a backpack along with instructions and a tent stake.  The whole thing ended up being much bigger than I expected but that is a bonus since I am a larger woman though it worked well for my skinnier co-workers as well.  It was very comfy.  The lounger itself appears well made and solid and not easily ripped but I wouldn't put it on sharp objects for sure.  I do like that it has pockets on the side for me to put my items in.  I must admit it took me a bit to get the hang of everything and make it work right.  I did struggle with figuring out how to get the right amount of air in it.  I think it may work easier outdoors as I tried it inside.  So that will be my next test.  We did use a fan to help blow it up.  Note that opening both tubes and trying to air them up at the same time makes it more difficult than needed, as I quickly found out, lol.  Someone mentioned that there are Youtube videos on how to more easily inflate this so will watch some before I try it out side.  Over all, it has been a fun product and I look forward to using it more.
I received this product for a discount  in exchange for my review.  I was not paid to give a positive review for this product.

Review: Messenger Bag

Once in awhile style and function meet. I got this to use for work to carry my notebook and files as I go home to home during the day. I needed something durable and solid so it will hold up to the abuse it endures in other people's houses. I wear jeans on my behind for the same reason - strong and durable and not easy for things to leak through. The canvas material appears like it will hold up and not allow liquids in even if I sit it in something. But it looks cool too and my co-workers liked it and asked me where I got it. One talked about getting it for her daughter who is a high schooler. The metal buckle and genuine leather adds the right jean touch. There seems to be plenty of room for my work supplies and it snaps shut magnetically. It has an outside pocket I can slide my current file in for easy access. Inside are several pockets, one of which is zippered. It has a strong bottom that makes it easy to sit it down without it falling over when its full. I was able to wipe down any dirt or marks from sitting it on the floor. Overall glad to have on my visits. I received this product for free in exchange for my review. I was not paid to give a positive review for this product.

Review: Hammock



I was so excited when this was offered and happy when I was chosen to review the hammock.
We have had a blast with this Hammock. The hammock is very long and the enclosed tree straps were long enough to put between two trees that I originally thought to far apart. Attaching the straps was as easy as wrapping one around the tree then through a loop. The carabiners slipped easy into the sectioned off straps. We had to adjust the placement a few time - the process was very quick. The hammock and straps were strong enough to hold my large frame (see attached photos). I loved the bright color. I received this hammock at a discounted rate in exchange for my honest and fair review but I would have bought it for full price.

Review: Organizer

I got the stroller organizer to see if it would work with my mother's walker and the universal part comes through with shining colors. There were tons of easily accessible places to store items. She was able to fit a drinking cup, tissues, hand cream and more. When she goes on a trip next month she will add her wallet.cell phone, pens, a notepad and more. The bag hangs freely without getting in the way. The bag is created out of strong material and is well constructed. She is very pleased. I bought this item at a discount in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

Review: Cooling Gel

At first I was skeptical because I had only used heat patches before, but these Cooling Gel Patches worked wonderfully. First I used it for tight muscles on my back near the neck after a stressful day. The area near the patch was less painful in about 10 minutes. Another day, I came home with a migraine and went immediately to these patches and place one on my forehead then laid down under a blanket. After my nap, I was much better. Despite the odd smell, these worked. The patches are easy to apply and stay on for a long time. I received this item at a discounted price in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
