Have a Little Faith ...

Once in a while, you get one of those feel-good spiritually uplifting moments and you can feel God's arms wrap around you and your heart. It's as if you can almost feel His presence right inside you, reminding you of his love. Well, what I'm getting ready to tell you about is also one of those feel-good, uplifting projects that will give you goosebumps. You all know I'm a fan of Hallmark anything - and it's not just because I've met Brad Moore, the President of Hallmark Films. It's also because of the quality of the films they put out. When I hear of anything new of theirs, I grab my tissue box and get ready for a sweet and clean movie. My husband makes fun of me every time, yet he often stops and watches, interested whether he'd admit or not. Let's face it ... he makes fun of me a lot. I cry at Extreme Home Makeover. I cry at a military USAA commercial, with the scene where the troops finally come home and rush into the arms of their love

Little Angel Giveaways

So recently I blogged about Roma Downey's new DVD series HERE . To recap, Ms. Roma formerly known as Monica on 'Touched by an Angel' has released an amazing children's series that not only stimulates your preschooler's mind with art, humor, numbers, music, and creative aspects - but also with Biblical truths and foundations. I've got a few giveaways that Roma has graciously sent me for anyone here that would be interested. For those that read, link me to your blog and mention Roma's new series. I'll be checking my stats and will be counting how many hits come from your blog. The bloggers with the most hits will receive one of her very cute and entertaining DVDs. I promise your little pre-schooler will love love love watching as much as my 8-year-old will deny loving it too.

Is this a great state or What???

So right about now I'm wondering how the Oklahoma Tourism Department is going to entice anyone to visit our state. Their slogan, Is this a great state or what?  isn't quite the right fit for us after 2011. Somehow, I don't think this year would make anyone think 'Yeah! I'm going to Oklahoma!' In fact, most of us who live here and love it, is seriously thinking about why we love it so much. After experiencing this year, I've caught myself looking to skies to watch for swarms of locusts or the second coming. LOL. If you've been anywhere near a TV you may have seen that Oklahoma has been in the news. The national reports have shown 2011 as being the record-breaking year for Oklahoma's weather. We've set records with the strongest earthquakes in state records, the longest drought, the hottest summer, the most tornadoes, the biggest blizzard, the most rain, and flooding. All in one year! Sheesh! And it's not like it's been quiet

Little Angels - Amazing Series for Pre-School Aged Children

As a parent, I'm always on the lookout for hidden dangers that I should shield my son from. Things that would or could damage his sense of self or purpose. The media is one outlet I've been very careful with, as my son has matured. KLOVE is usually on where we're in the car. When it comes to movies and television, we're very selective in what we watch. That being said we've not put him in a bubble. He's aware of the good and bad things that happen in this world, but we've just done what we can to keep his innocence around as long as possible. Most of the kids in today's world are growing up too fast, and I want better for my child. Have I been on my soapbox enough here? All this is leading to a point, I promise. I recently became aware of Roma Downey 's newest project, ' Little Angels ' and was so happy to see someone of her caliber promote such a worthy series. You may remember Ms. Downey from her work as 'Monica' on
