Abel's Field GIVEAWAY and Review

The story in this film is about a teen trying to hold life all
together after his mother death and his father abandoned the family,
and his older bother doing nothing to help them out.
He struggles to keep things going for himself as well as young twin sisters.
He realizes that he can not do it himself and he needs God and Faith.

This movie is rated PG. There is no bad language in this movie,
however there is some drinking by adults.
There is not much violence but there is a time or so when
Seth gets into fights with the football players in his school.
These scenes may be a little intense for young children.

Here is a synopsis of the movie:

Left motherless by tragedy and abandoned by his father, high school senior Seth McArdle (Samuel Davis) faces enormous pressure as he strives to support his little sisters. At school, he endures the daily bullying of the football team. But fighting back only finds him singled out for punishment and assigned to an after-school work detail under the supervision of the reserved groundskeeper, Abel (SOUL SURFER’S Kevin Sorbo). Much to his surprise, Seth discovers that Abel may be the only one who truly understands his struggles. As dark times lure Seth toward desperate measures, the reluctant Abel may be the one person who can point him back toward the light.

The Death of Fifteen Million Dollars

My friend and I were on a sight-seeing tour in Miami. 
As we passed 'millionaire's row," the guide pointed out a huge,
 boarded-up bleak looking mansion. 

"That's the old James Deering mansion," said our guide.  "Cost $15,000,000.  After Deering died none of his heirs wanted to live there.  The upkeep on the place was tremendous, so the executors opened it to the public for sightseeing at $1.85 admission.  But even then they couldn't break even.  So they finally just boarded it up and there it sits."

The guide continued his spiel, but my friend seemed suddenly to have lost all interest in the tour.  He was quiet for a long time, bey at least he turned to me. 

"I've just been trying to figure out what James Deering could have done with that $15,000,000," he said.  "Let's see - he could have sent 1,000 missionaries into the foreign field for 15 years.  He could have placed 20 surgeons in a like number of hospitals for more than 150 years.  Or he could, perhaps, have endowed a half-dozen research foundations to discover cures for diseases like cancer and tuberculosis.  Yes, James Deering's $15,000,000 could have lived on instead of crumbling away."

The guides persistent chatter as he described the skyline couldn't entirely drown out my friend's conclusion:  "What we give away lasts longer than what we keep for ourselves."

This story reminded me today to give of myself to others but especially to my Family. 

I want to live in light of the Gospel and give of myself.

Good Advice about Modesty

Muhammad Ali's advice to his daughters
The following incident took place when Muhammad Ali's daughters arrived at his home wearing clothes that were not modest. Here is the story as told by one of his daughters:

When we finally arrived, the chauffeur escorted my younger sister, Laila, and me up to my father's suite. As usual, he was hiding behind the door waiting to scare us. We exchanged many hugs and kisses as we could possibly give in one day.

My father took a good look at us. Then he sat me down on his lap and said something that I will never forget. He looked me straight in the eyes and said, "Hana, everything that God made valuable in the world is covered and hard to get to. Where do you find diamonds? Deep down in the ground, covered and protected. Where do you find pearls? Deep down at the bottom of the ocean, covered up and protected in a beautiful shell. Where do you find gold? Way down in the mine, covered over with layers and layers of rock. You've got to work hard to get to them."

He looked at me with serious eyes. "Your body is sacred. You're far more precious than diamonds and pearls, and you should be covered too." Source: Taken from the book: More Than A Hero: Muhammad Ali's Life Lessons Through His Daughter's Eyes.

A Mother who plays

I hope my children
look back on today
And see a Mother
who had time to play
There will be years
for cleaning
and cooking...
For children grow up
while were not looking.

(click on book for purchasing info)
Book Info:

Back Cover: For a child, every day is a thing of wonder. And for six-year-old Lily Lapp, every day is a new opportunity for blessings, laughter, family, and a touch of mischief. As she explores her world, goes to school, spends time with her family, and gets into a bit of trouble with her friends, Lily learns what it means to be Amish and what it means to grow up. From getting a new teacher to welcoming a new sibling, Lily's life is always full of adventure.

The first of four charming novels that chronicle the gentle way of the Amish through the eyes of a young girl, Life with Lily gives children ages 8-12 a fascinating glimpse into the life of the Amish--and lots of fun and laughter along the way. It combines the real-life stories of growing up Amish from Mary Ann Kinsinger and the bestselling writing of Amish fiction and nonfiction author Suzanne Woods Fisher. With charming illustrations throughout, this series is sure to capture the hearts of readers young and old.
Suzanne Woods Fisher lives with her family in the San Francisco Bay Area. She has one husband, four children, one son-in-law, a brand new grand-baby, and a couple of dogs. She graduated from Westmont College in Santa Barbara, California.
Suzanne has contracts with Revell for six more books about the Amish, both fiction and non-fiction. She is also the host of “Amish Wisdom·” on toginet.com, a weekly radio program featuring guests who are connected to Simple Living.

After they chose to leave the Amish church, Mary Ann began a blog, A Joyful Chaos, as a way to capture her warm memories of her childhood for her own children. From the start, this blog found a ready audience and even captured the attention of key media players, such as the influential blog AmishAmerica and the New York Times. She lives in Pennsylvania.

I have been reading this book with my 3 children and we have been thoroughly enjoying this book.  Lily and her family give you the feel that you are right there and a part of their lives. 
Her Brother is the curious type and finds himself getting into some predicaments.
There have been times that you feel sad and could cry, times when you were thrilled and time when you just feel involved in their lives like you are there going through the emotions with them.
So many of the modern books written today our family does not take part in reading,  This book was very enjoyable for Myself as well as my children.  Many days after reading to the end of a chapter as a stopping place you children would beg me to read more. 
I highly recommend this book and
I am anxiously looking forward to seeing Lily again in book 2, A New Home For Lily, set for release in February 2013!
Prizes include
Either the new Kindle Fire or new Nook HD
Signed copy of Life with Lily for you and a young reader in your life.
There is not much time left to enter prizes will be announced at the Face Book Party.

A gift for a Mama of a new baby

If you have children you know that sometimes 
it is hard to spend time alone with God. 
This is a great gift for a mom with a newborn.
Type out some meaningful scripture verses print and cut them out and tape them around diapers.
When the Mama goes to change her precious baby she can see little tokens or meaningful verses.
Put them in a nice little basket you can also fill the basket with other things that would he helpful or meaningful to the Mama. 
Like maybe some chocolates.
Here is a picture of my daughter holding that precious baby of a friend we delivered the gift to. 
He is SO adorable and made the cutest little noises.
