wrote this post on behalf of Werther’s Originals Caramel Popcorn and their PR Company. Our Hope Is In The Lord has  received a  MommyParties Kit to host my Mommy Party in exchange for an honest review. This is not a sponsored review and all views and opinions are of my own and were not influenced in any way. 

Werther's Originals has been a very popular brand for a very long time. My husband favorite candy is caramel. I was so excited to share the Werther's Originals Caramel Popcorn with my husband and my friends. I decided to have a Mom's Night In at our house to sample the Werther's Popcorn and watch Soul Surfer. Each one of my friend's brought a appetizer to share with the other moms. 

The recipe I decided to make was the Chocolate Caramel Clusters. All of my guests loved these. There comments were:
"Wow, these are delicious"
" I can't stop eating this yummy dessert" 

Ingredients used:
12oz of the gluten free chocolate chips
4 cups of Werther's Original Caramel Popcorn
Shredded Coconut

Line muffin pan with paper cups.
Melt gluten free chocolate chips in pan.
Put Caramel popcorn in a large bowl and pour chocolate over the popcorn. 
Place in muffin cups and refrigerate for 20-25 minutes, or until set. 

This recipe is easy to follow and really fast to make especially with the holidays coming up. 

Everyone of my friend's loved to try a new recipe. They were very pleased. All of them weren't aware that Werthers made a caramel popcorn which is why I was pleased to introduce them to this product. 

One of the awesome about having these parties is that I always get to give away product to my friend's. Everyone loves to receive FREE items. Each Mom walked away with a bag of Werther's Caramel Popcorn, Recipes, Coupons and Fact Sheet about the product. We were sitting down to watch Soul Surfer which by the way if one of our favorites and I decided to get a quick picture of my gang with there popcorn:) 

Before the movie even started I shared a devotion with my friends. We also had a moment of prayer. Soul Surfer is a real authentic movie that will touch the hearts of many when seen. Soul Surfer is a true story about Bethany Hamilton that got bit by a shark and her journey to recovery and healing. What a better way to share such a inspiring movie with women and to share the New Werther's Caramel Popcorn. 

I was thankful that Mom Select sent me a copy of Soul Surfer and I already had a copy so I was able to gift the other copy to one of my friend's. It's better to give than to receive. 

With the Holidays fast approaching Werther's Caramel Popcorn would be a great addition to your dessert choices that I'm sure that all of your family and friends will remember for a lifetime!!!!

Juicing to Loss Weight

I'm so excited, I started juicing about 2 months ago. I just juiced for 30 days with very little food in my diet. I have a VitaMix and I love juicing in it because you get whole ingredients when juicing. After the 30 days I had to go back to foods for a few weeks, the piece on my VitaMix broke and needed it fixed. My plan was small at first was only 10 days, then 20 days and then 30 days. I had made my goal and I was so happy. But when I went back to foods I was craving the juice. I had to wait for VitaMix to come back. After 10 days I got it back, I was so excited to go back to juicing. My body was totally craving it the whole time. Now I still juice 3 meals of my day, eating a little at night. The juice is very satisfying.

Here is the recipe I use:
Celery( 1 to 2 stalks)
Spinach( 1 to 2 handfuls)
Kale( 1 leave)
Pineapple ( slice of Pineapple with core)
Lemon( 1 slice)
Apple( core and all)
Chia or Hemp( I like Chia better) for protein

To this date I have lost 18 pounds in 2 months. I'm so happy with juicing and am feeling amazing. I have to say the first 5 days were hard and if you decide to do this, then have a lot of grace for yourself. Its ok if you have a handful of almonds or a salad. I did. This is the first time in 12 years that I was able to loss anything, and I'm so excited. I walked everyday and didn't lose a pound. And now I have found what works. I still have a few more pounds to go but I know now that I can do it, of course with God's Help!!!!!
