Just Sayin' by Carol McAdams Moore Review

Just Sayin' by Carol McAdams Moore is a fun book for girls, packed with 90 devotions they can write, draw, or hide in their heart.

It's definitely not the typical 90-day devotional book.  Almost like a personal journal, girls will learn more about themselves and their faith, while also expressing their thoughts and emotions into doodles, pictures, and writings.

Each of the short devotions has relevant topics, quotes, and Scripture, along with journal prompts, puzzles, activities, quizzes, and more.

It's a great way to read something about God, learn something about yourself, then express it on paper.

Thoughts of an 11-Year Old:  Just Sayin' by Carol McAdams Moore is a devotional book just for girls. It's fun and has lots of ways to draw and shine for Jesus!

I like Just Sayin' because it is fun and interactive, and I love love love to draw.It is a fun way to get to know Jesus' word.

My favorite pages so far are 24, 27 and 30. It's fun to draw, but even more fun to draw God's word!

Find Out More:  You can find out more online at Zondervan.  Just Sayin' is only $9.99 and great for girls ages 8-12.

A Very 1 Girl Nation Christmas CD GIVEAWAY!!!

I am very excited to be able to host this awesome giveaway for my readers!! Back in September our church hosted a preteen girls conference and 1 Girl Nation was the entertainment the first night and guest speakers the next afternoon.


After the concert the band stayed until every single girl was able to talk with them and get autographs.  Below you can see Funny Bunny talking to each one.


I cannot began to tell you what an inspiration each one of the girls was.  For about an hour they spoke with the audience and answered questions.

Thoughts of an 11-Year Old:  First of all, 1 Girl Nation is my favorite band ever, and they are amazing! It also helps to know that there are great singers out there that glorify God with every song.

Secondly, I was even MORE excited when they came to our church's Heart to Heart Conference and Concert! They sang wonderfully and I was able to meet each one. They also told each of their testimonies and it was fun to have them here with us!

We were all anxiously awaiting the release of A Very 1 Girl Nation Christmas CD. And we got it! I was very excited when we received it in the mail. We quickly listened to it the moment we got in the car. I love it! It was better than I expected. It's a great CD!

I think my favorite song is Joy. I like it when they make up their own songs. I also like A Very A Cappella Christmas Mashup, because it shows each girl's favorite style of singing. And after the 1 Girl Nation concert at church, it was fun to hear a verse and think, "I know who's singing that!"  

Find Out More:  You can find out more online at 1 Girl Nation.  A Very 1 Girl Nation Christmas is just $3.99!!  You can also find them on Facebook.

Snake Oil Game Review

Out of the Box Games Review
I've said it before and I'll say it again....we LOVE playing board games at our house!!  It's the perfect way to spend quality time together while having a fun time and just hanging out!

We have a huge collection of favorites, some we tend to play over and over again.

I've been excited to share with you that we have found another great game to add to our very large collection...Snake Oil by Out of the Box Games.

Out of the Box Publishing feels games should be fun so they set out to create innovative party, card, and board games that are fun and engaging to play with friends and family. 

Their website is catchy and bright and their games are categorized by: Party, Quick, or Engaging.  There is also an interactive Game Finder that let's you find the perfect game based on the number of players, ages, and type of game.


Out of the Box Games Review

The idea for the game Snake Oil came from the Old West.  Back in the day, sneaky snake oil salesmen would be able to get the most skeptical customer to buy their product.  In Snake Oil, that is what the players get to do...convince the customer they should buy their, sometimes crazy and weird product.

Thoughts of an 11-Year Old:  Snake Oil is a very fun game, and it has lots of silly results. It is a Pitch-A-Product game, and it can get very goofy. Here is the main idea of the game.

Players One, Two and Three draw cards to create a hand of six. 

Player Two draws a Customer Card. "I'm a snake! Sell me something I need!"

Players One and Three look at their cards and combine two to make a silly product. 

Player One holds up cards. "I'm here to sell this snake a Spine Cloth. You can use it to..."

Player Three holds up cards. "I'll sell you an even better item called a Tail Hat. You can use it to..."

Player Two hands the Customer Card to Player One. "I'll buy the Spine Cloth."

Player One wins because they received the most Customer Cards after everyone was a customer once. 

I think Snake Oil is a really fun and cool game. Everybody gets an armload of silly, and they can use it to really invent something useful, or something only an Alien would want! And, as they say, laughter really is the best medicine!


My Thoughts:  We have really enjoyed playing this game together.  It has been challenging to think out of the box and make each other laugh.  I think it would make a great Christmas present.  Even though the recommended age is 10, I think if child can read, they will be able to play this game.

Find Out More:  You can find out more online at Out of the Box Games.  Snake Oil has a suggested retail of $19.99 and can be found online at various retailers.  It's recommended for ages 10 and up and for 3-10 players.

You can also find Out of the Box Games on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.
