Patterns of Evidence : Exodus ( Review and GIVEAWAY)

Husband and I love history and Bible documentaries. During the lenten season , don't be surprised if our DVR is full of Christian and Bible base movies, documentaries and series. We watched every single episode of  The Bible and the Bible A.D, which unfortunately they discontinued, bummer. When I was contacted to do a review of Patterns of Evidence : Exodus , we were definitely in. I am also lucky to be able to giveaway a copy of the DVD to one of my readers.

 Many thanks to Propeller Consulting, LLC for providing the prize for this giveaway. Choice of winners and opinions are 100% my own and NOT influenced by monetary compensation. I did receive a sample of the product in exchange for this review and post.

I have watched and read many accounts questioning the validity of the Bible. The validity of the Old Testament , is it all a fact ? Did it all happened?  I have read an article explaining that the turning of water into wine at a wedding feast in Cana and the feeding of multitudes with bread and fish -- did not actually happen miraculously. It was just a "Miracle of Sharing". 

There are also documentaries , books and articles written about the Exodus, some are proving it to be a fact and some a fiction. Documentary filmmaker, Tim Mahoney did an excellent and intelligent in depth investigation.

For more than 50 years, the vast majority of the world's most prominent archaeologists and historians have proclaimed that there is no hard evidence to support the Exodus story found in the Bible.  In fact, they say that the archaeological record is completely opposed to the Bible's account.  This view of extreme skepticism has spread from academia to the world.  The case against the Exodus appears to be so strong that even some religious leaders are labeling this ancient account as historical fiction.  Filmmaker Timothy Mahoney begins with the questions, "Is the Bible just a myth, or did the archaeologists get it wrong?"  He decides to tackle this issue with a deliberate scientific approach.   After examining the details in the biblical text, he journeys across the globe to search for patterns of evidence firsthand.  The result is the most in-depth archaeological investigation into the Exodus from Egypt ever captured on film.   This scientific documentary's goal is to communicate the TRUTH of the Bible and help equip believers with defending their faith and the Bible.  

The DVD features stunning animations and a cast including narrator, Kevin Sorbo (God's Not Dead, Hercules: The Legendary Journeys), interviews with leading archaeologists including Israel Finkelstein, Kent Weeks, and David Rohl, and guest appearances by Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu and Shimon Peres.

Darn Good Slow Cooker Ribs

Are you utilizing your crockpot at home? I think every household should own one.  Weather your a stay at home mom, working mom, a college student or a dad... a crockpot is your best friend. I like coming home knowing that I have dinner already cooked  , hot and house smelling good. It is my ultimate kitchen best friend especially when I am craving for something grilled and barbecued. There is just no way that hubs and I can stand grilling when the temperature outside is  96 degrees but it feels like triple digit heat,

Here's a darn good slow cooker ribs for you, fall off the bone tender and DELICIOUS.


1 rack of beef ribs ( If using baby back ribs, use 3 racks)
1 bottle of barbecue sauce - I used sweet baby ray- honey
1 tsp onion powder
2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp smoked paprika
1 1/2 tsp kosher salt
1 1/2 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper


Make your dry rub by whisking all the spices and in a bowl .

 Remove any membrane from the back of the ribs. If you are using large beef ribs, cut or slice the ribs to fit your crockpot. Season both sides of your ribs with your prepared dry rub.

Place your ribs in your crockpot, meat side out. Cook on low for 7-8 hrs.

Remove the ribs from your crockpot and place on a aluminum foil lined baking sheet. Brush with BBQ sauce. Broil for 3-5 minutes. about that tender and easy BBQ ribs.

Finger licking worthy moment , add more BBQ sauce on the side. It is really good with coleslaw salad, grilled corn and mashed potato ( mashed cauliflower , for  healthier version).

I would love to connect with you!
