10 Father's Day Gifts Under $10


    I truly believe that sometimes, fathers are being taken for granted. There are a lot of blogs and websites geared towards motherhood. Books that prepare you for pregnancy, classes that teach soon to be dads on how to be supportive to the soon to be mom. I remember watching Dax Shepard on one of his interviews about being a dad and how his experience with his wife's C section delivery was. He said..there was no class nor advice that can prepare him from what he saw on that operating room.

    It is time to put the dads on the pedestal, our hardworking husbands ..our funny partners , our late night dates. For all those mood swings they endure because of our monthly visits ..Ha! -- sounds familiar? Our simple man..who likes simple things. These 10 shirts for under $10 are a great bargain..great gift for the simple man in our lives.

 I actually thought I can wear this shirt.

Watch out, nothing can scare dads---> specially when they have daughters. 





 Ladies, the way through a man's heart..is bacon too.

“I’m really passionate about the song Sky Spills Over. It was fun creating it in the studio and I’ve been overwhelmed at the response it gets when we perform it live every night.

United :Empires - Review and Giveaway



There are mornings when moms wake up exhausted, we grow weary of the everyday mundane tasks. The everyday challenge of attending to little ones at home , parenting school age and teenage years , keeping up with the chores and the uncertainty of the future can give us a mountain of fear and worry.

How do we feed the soul when we grow weary? Ahhh..yes..the Word of God. Never fails.



 My husband leaves for work very early in the morning. In the silence of the morning, I spend time with the Lord. When spending time with His Word is not possible, listening to our favorite worship song feeds my day.
My girls listen to it too before heading for school.  We love the song OCEANS by Hillsong United. I remember the first time I went to a service and heard that song, it just sang to my heart and I lifted my hands asking Him to take over my life and my family life.

As a mom, I am sure you can resonate with wanting to be always in control. We have plan A to D ( more if needed) , when things go bad in a grocery store it frustrates us that we are not in control of the situation. When our kids attend school and pick up bad behaviors, it saddens us because we can not control every single influence our kids get exposed to.

When I was offered a product review for Hillsong United's new album : Empires. I was stoked! I couldn't say yes fast enough.  I am very lucky to be able to hear the album before it was released today!
Let me tell you sweet readers, this is not just another church album.

It will move you and inspire you. 

The Empires album has 12 tracks . I have my favorites too -- Prince of Peace, Touch the Sky and Empires.
When I heard the song Prince of Peace, it reminded me of a painting by Akiane. We have His picture or replica in our bedroom. Indeed, this song renewed the fact that Jesus is the Prince of Peace.

Touch the Sky. Where do I begin with this song? Let's start with Taya. Her voice is awe-inspiring. I was already a big fan of hers when I heard the song Oceans for the first time. This track just justified what Hillsong United stands for -- true love for Jesus Christ. Changing lives… Loving on other people through life in Christ.

Lastly,Empires. Wow… just wow. We are saved not by the good works we do or had done; we are saved by His grace through faith. (See Ephesians 2:8). This song will surely remind you of Jesus love for us. In Jesus alone, we are healed and past mistakes are forgiven.

This album is remarkable.   Hillsong United has done it again --giving us a beautiful , high quality and inspiring songs. 

I am grateful and excited to be able to OFFER 1 FREE CD COPY OF THE NEW ALBUM EMPIRES BY UNITED HILLSONG.
