Brave Girls: Faithful Friends A 90-Day Devotional

Disclosure - free sample provided.




Brave Girls:  Faithful Friends A 90-Day Devotional is another great devotional from Tommy Nelson.  My daughter previously read the Brave Girls:  Better Than Perfect, and she loved both of these devotionals.  Faithful Friends is another devotional that teaches young girls about the bible, and does it in a really fun way.  The book really does a good job appealing to girls, and teaching them at their level.  


Brave Girls:  Faithful Friends is a book that features Hope, Glory, Faith, Gracie, and Honor.  The devotional talks about friendship.  The book is not just reading though.  This book also incorporates activities.  This is a neat way to teach your child about the bible with a hands on approach.  It helps your child visualize how things happen and work.  

This devotional has short little sections that teach your child about the bible.  These sections feature the Faithful Friends.  They help explain the stories from the bible, and it really makes it meaningful for young girls.  The book also has some sections in the back that help your child think, and then come up with the right answer.  It helps your child understand the importance of having good values, and morals.  

This book is something that my 8 year old really enjoyed.  She thought reading the lessons in it was fun.  She enjoyed the hands on activities too.  Do you know someone that might enjoy this book?  This really would make a nice gift for a little girl.

Brave Girls: Better Than Perfect A 90-Day Devotional

Disclosure - free sample provided.



I am always looking for books that will help inspire my children, and teach them to be good people.  Devotionals are always great for that.  The Brave Girls:  Better Than Perfect A 90-Day Devotional does just that.  This book is great for young girls.  It helps them understand parts of the bible, and it does this in a fun way that young girls will understand.  I thought that this book was perfect for my 8 year old daughter.  

The book really appeals to girls because the characters in the book are girls themselves.  Honor and Faith are Brave Girls.  These two girls make it easy for children to relate to what is going on.  Each section of this book features a part of the bible.  These Sections are then explained in language that is easy to understand.  The book is something that your child can read one section a day over a 90 day period. 

I really liked that the book also includes activities that your child can do to really help them understand certain things.  This is really neat and my daughter enjoyed this too.  This is a hands on way for them to understand the bible.  The book also has a section that allows them to write their own answers in to questions.  This helps them think how they would handle certain situations, or deal with difficult things.  

The Brave Girls:  Better Than Perfect A 90-Day Devotional is a meaningful and fun read for girls!

HydroMate 25 oz. Water Bottle Review #HydroMate4Life

Disclosure - free sample provided.


It is already pretty warm here in Vegas.  I find myself needing to bring a water bottle with me pretty much everywhere we go.  It can get pricey to buy water bottles and then just toss them when you are done.  I have been looking for a great reusable water bottle that will really hold up and last.  I recently received a HydroMate 25 oz. Water Bottle.  This is a great water bottle that I will be using all throughout the hot weather season.




The HydroMate 25 oz. Water Bottle is a nice size bottle.  It is on the larger size, but not too large that it is annoying to carry around.  The water bottle comes with 2 lids.  I really like this.  One of the lids twists on, and the other lid is a sipper style lid.  The sipper style is great if you have children and want to avoid as many spills as possible.  The water bottle is made of stainless steel, and it is also BPA free.  I really like that because this bottle is stainless that it keeps my water cold for a long time.  I just fill it with ice and water before I leave the house.





The HydroMate 25 oz. Water Bottle is available on Amazon for the current price of $19.95.  The water bottle normally retails for $25.99, so this really is a good deal.

I love Vietnamese food.  I was so excited to see the Pork and Rice Noodle Pho recipe in this book.  This recipe is so good, and so easy to make.  Some of the ingredients include pork tenderloin, garlic, carrots, celery, ginger, cilantro, been sprouts, and more.  This recipe is something I will be making for a light and healthy weeknight meal.  It can be prepared quickly, but it is so good.
