Flowerz in Her Hair Review

My Princess with Our Flowerz In Her Hair Bows.
Curly Korker Bow
Flower Bow with Gem

Feathery Bows
Thank you to for letting us review these bows.

My Review:
I have found that these bows are VERY durable, Our daughter does gymnastics and she wears them during gymnastics  and they don't fall off.  Amy did a great job making these bow especially for us. These bows are great quality and worth the $ 4. My favorite has always been the Curly Korker but all of them we have loved.  Each bow is hand designed with quality. You can build your own bow with certain designs. Flowerz in Her Hair has many designs, and colors to choice from.

Ice Age-( 3500 BC) Lesson 5

"The Ice Age"

I never believed that there was an Ice Age. Well now I do. After reading some books
they believed that The Ice Age happened after the flood, which they believed was the cause of The Ice Age.
They believed that not all of the earth was covered but it extended more southward. The ice caps extended futher south then today.
They don't know for sure, as we have seen, this is a mystery.
So we will keep going on this journey.....

Ducky and D Man
We had a ice cube contest to see how cold it was during The Ice Age.
It was VERY cold.......

Ducky making a greenhouse, to represent the vapor ( extra moisture that was in the air)
Which they believed that it was a factor in the cause of The Ice Age. Also volcanic ash in the air along with new uplifted mountains with snow were other factors.

100 Prayers God Loves to Hear 100 Praise Songs

Thank you to Thomas Nelson Publishers for letting us review this product.
ISBN: 978-1-4003-1549-9

Created by: Stephen Elkins
Illustrations by: Tom O'Connor

My Review:
Each devotion is brightly colored to attract your children attention.
The lessons in this book is short but full of life of God's word.
All of the stories in this book have a prayer and a song that
go with it. It makes it fun for the children to relate a song to
a prayer.

For instance:
"A Prayer for Jesus"
"Jesus' song"-I got joy down in my heart"

There are 158 prayers and songs in this book.

In 100 prayers God loves to hear, they have a little prayer
reminder, which is from a famous/influential person's quote.

For example:
Mother Teresa
"God speaks in the silence of the heart".
"Listening is the beginning of prayer."

I love having this in this book because God has equipped many
people with Godly wisdom that can be instilled in our children.

100 Prayers God loves to hear has two cd's of all the songs
that match the prayers in this book.

Beloved prayers fill this book:

For Example:
Psalm 51:10.12
"Create in me a pure heart,O God
Restore to me the joy of your salvation
and grant me a willing spirit,to sustain me".

The prayer is on one page and a beautiful illustration is on the
other side and then you listen to the cd after your prayer.

This book your children will surely love, we did.
Thanks again to Thomas Nelson for letting us review it.
Have a blessed day!!!
