Hillsong Kids – Can You Believe It DVD Review and GIVEAWAY!

Can you tell my kids were excited to check out this DVD? (Even Baby Bear! Ha!) We are a music loving family. My husband and I participate in our church’s praise band, so we are singing and playing music ALL the time. Worship is such a powerful way to connect with God, so I love that Hillsong has made music for our kids to worship with! This DVD is jam packed with some phenomenal songs that even the adults will enjoy. You’ll find “Can You Believe It” clips from Funny Man Dan, some select music videos, live in the studio clips and lyrical videos.

We’ve been using this DVD as a way to get some energy out. The kids love to dance, but they prefer dancing to videos… but we all know that YouTube has questionable ads sometimes, so I love that I can pop this DVD out and trust that the content is not only kid friendly but also showers my kids with the love of Jesus!

I’m even more excited that I get to share a copy with one of my readers! It’s easy to enter, just follow the instructions in the form below.

Chris Tomlin’s “Holy Roar” Album Review

One of my favorite things to review is MUSIC, we have some pretty amazing Christian artists right now. I’ve been pretty blown away by the lyrics and music that has come out lately and I feel like the Lord is really moving in a big way! Chris Tomlin does not disappoint with his new album, Holy Roar. The concept of Holy Roar is quoted as, “the freedom, the experience, the wonder of worship. It is seeing the church come together, hands lifted to God, pouring out our praise with an eternal song in our hearts. It’s every voice together, changing the way we worship.” I find that to be SO powerful.

Every song on this album is a powerful worship song that brings you closer to God as you sing, the lyrics and melodic music is exactly what you need for your time of worship. I imagine that we might end up singing some of these in my own church!

You can buy a copy of this album at most retail stores online, you can find out more HERE.

 

The Spirit of God Illustrated Bible Review

I think it’s pretty obvious, if you follow my blog, that I LOVE books. I’m always looking for new books to add to not only mine, but my children’s library as well. This illustrated bible was the perfect addition to our collection, the illustrations are beautiful and my kids love how the stories are told.

The Spirit of God Illustrated Bible brings over 40 of our favorite Bible stories to life with beautiful illustrations by Fernando Juarez. Doris Rikkers is the author and she has done a wonderful job bringing these stories to life. Every page is full of color and adorable depictions of each story.

My kids are thoroughly enjoying reading through this Bible with me, I’ve even been including it with our Bible curriculum for school!

I received a free copy of this book in return for a review, a positive review was not required. All opinions and statements are my own.

Paradise Praises – Bible Activities Review

I am so excited to share this review with you guys today! One of the things that drives me crazy is searching for extra worksheets to give Boogie for busy work when we are studying something in particular and I need to give her something to do while the littles need my attention.This book completely solves that problem for our Bible studies!

I love love love this book! My only complaint is that it would be easier to make copies of in a spiral bound book or even a loose leaf binder or perhaps a book with easy pull out pages. I’ll probably tear this apart and put it in a binder for easier copying for my kids.

As you can see in the above image, there are a ton of worksheets and coloring pages to choose from! Some are above my children’s levels just yet, but we are already utilizing some of them! For instance, as I will state in my video (hopefully I’ll have that posted tonight), we are learning the books of the Old Testament…. first worksheet in this book is a word search containing the Old Testament books! Boogie LOVED it! It kept her busy while I did some other work with Bubby and Bird. I’m excited to utilize this book some more and I’m even more excited to see if the creator, Katie Hornor, comes out with more books like this!

You can find out more about Katie at ParadisePraises.com or purchase your own copy at Amazon HERE! Be sure to check out Paradise Praises, there are some awesome posts and other resources there for everyone, not just homeschoolers!

The Star Movie

Have you had a chance to see the movie, The Star yet? We are watching it Friday night for our family movie night! I’m so excited to share this sweet movie with my children.


The Star is a heartwarming tale about a donkey named Bo, he goes on a grand adventure and meets many quirky animals along the way. The greatest adventure of all was when he accidentally becomes a hero in one of the most amazing stories ever told! So many amazing actors and actresses voice the characters in this movie, including Tyler Perry, Gina Rodriguez, Kelly Clarkson, Oprah Winfrey, Kristin Chenoweth and many more!

I love that we can share the story of Jesus’s birth with our children through a fun animated movie like this. It’s full of fun music, silly animals and most importantly… one of the greatest stories ever told.

There are some great bonus materials included with the DVD (which is NOW available to purchase, click any image in this post to find out how). There is a sing-along with Bo and his friends, a dance-along to “Life Is Good”, lyric sing-alongs with five of the songs from the movie (including “The Star” by Mariah Carey). You’ll also fine instructions for Sweet and Sparkly Star cookies, a craft activity to make star mason jar votives… and the list goes on!

You will even find a children’s sermon discussing The Star and how you can keep the story of Jesus’s birth alive in our hearts EVERY day. What’s REALLY neat is that we have been provided with a family friendly weekly bible study by DeVon Franklin, just click the image below to head to the Facebook page post from The Star Movie to find out how to download it today!

It’s a fun interactive way for your kids to learn more, try it out! I will share my thoughts on the movie in a future blog post after we watch it this weekend. I have no doubt that it will be a movie we love to watch for years to come! Buy your copy soon, I’d love to hear your thoughts on this movie as well! God Bless!
