Tasting the Sweet Water of Life~ A review

Tasting The Sweet Water of Life by Diana Houlihan reminds us that there is still good in this world . She shares with us her journey of walking with Jesus Christ  and how he tenderly guided her to her present place of contentment and peace.  Through testimony, poetry and experiences she gladly gives her Savior all of the Praise.  Relating the joys and struggles of being an Elder's daughter; her book would encourage many young people facing the same.  For all others, her words bring comfort and inspiration understanding that all we go through is for a great cause when we know the Lord.  I look forward to referring back to her poetry whenever I may need an uplift.  This is Diana Houlihan's first project and I find myself craving for more.

The Precious Story of Love in Simple Terms


Lisa T. Bergren's Children's books thrill everyone's soul.  Thus when Blogging for Books offered her most recent read God Gave Us Love, in exchange for a honest review, I hurried to sign up.  Kudos to Lisa for even considering making the pages broader and thicker to keep them durable with youngsters around.  This sweet sweet story is a conversation between Grandpa Bear and Little Cub about all the different types of  Love.  This tenderly written book could teach many an adult by putting God's word in a more simple terms which are easily understood by everyone.  The illustrations created by Laura J. Bryant enhance this warm experience.  Reading this book took me back on a  journey years ago full of fond memories of my grandparent's explaining to me of God's Love.  This best-seller makes for the perfect time to bond with your little ones while speaking upon the most important subjects they will need to know.  Thank You, Lisa T. Bergren for another outstanding treasure.  This would also make for a fine holiday gift.

More than We Deserve Grace by Max Lucado

Many individuals can't embrace the total joys that God has given them because they feel they do not deserve it.  Max Lucado addresses this concern in his newest work "Grace More Than We Deserve Greater Than We Imagine".  This book will help people realize that we will never be perfect and that Grace is a gift which none of us are worthy of.  God gives us Grace out of his love for his creation. Max Lucado is one of my favorite Christian author's.  His success is due, in part, to backing up his thoughts with scripture.  He elaborates on subjects such as Jesus Christ comes to our defense (what could be a sweeter thought) and Heaven is Guaranteed.  His words are uplifting and always encouraging.  They erase thoughts that one might have.  His readers are rejuvenated and excited to continue serving God.  I had the wonderful opportunity of reviewing this book for Book Sneeze online.  Don't  miss out on a grand experience, get your copy today~

Nectresse~The Low Calorie Alternative to Sugar

Splenda Nectresse Puts Sun Crystals in Hall of Shame

Sun Crystals All Natural Sweetener offered consumers a low calorie natural replacement for sugar howbeit the taste never really caught on. For me it left an awful aftertaste and their sweetener seemed to be too strong. All over the internet one can find negative reviews about this product when, for awhile, I thought it was only my opinion. In time numerous competitors emerged and they were pushed to the background. They are so yesteryear (2009). Recently Splenda introduced Nectresse which is 100% Natural with Zero Calories and the taste is Sensational! I've perfected my ice tea after using this and I've had tons of compliments to confirm it. I was fortunate enought to receive free samples of Nectresse through Smiley 360 online. Say no to Sun Crystals and Yes to Nectresse~

Now That's Italian~

Product – Red Pepper Sauce | Progresso Frozen Foods

Progresso Foods offers a delicious shortcut to warm bellies with the cold weather upon us.  I was fortunate to receive free coupons for their new frozen sauce and specialty pastas after becoming a fan member. Within these choices of sauces:  Red Pepper Sauce; Marsala Sauce & White Wine Sauce I purchased the first.  Coming from a large Italian family, I learnt to make both spaghetti noodles and sauce from scratch from my grandmother which was an all day affair.  Thanks to Progresso a family can enjoy the great taste of an awesome pasta meal which the cook can prepare in less than forty five minutes.  Imagine how elated I was when my spouse gave me kudos for the angel hair pasta and garlic bread meal I had made.  Progresso's Red Pepper Sauce just needed to be warmed up because it is not necessary to add anything.  I boiled the noodles and baked garlic bread yet the family had praised me as if I spent my entire day in the kitchen.  Better yet, this specialty sauce was so unique that we all were happy to sample something new and different.  Looking forward to the marsala sauce and white wine sauce to enhance supper meals.  If grandma were still alive I would have to explain to her that Progresso is truly Italian.  Give yourself a break...try Progresso now~

The Benefits of 5-Hour Energy

After trying 5-Hour Energy my husband was able to enjoy after work activities like never before.  As a Manager in an Appliance Store where he is on his feet literally 13 hour days, he would come home and go straight to bed.  As a member of Smiley 360 online, I was given the opportunity to sample 5-Hour Energy in exchange for an honest review.  My spouse insisted on trying a bottle one evening after spending a whole day at work.  He wanted to stay up to watch a baseball game.  I was elated to witness the effects.  He was able to keep going for two more hours.  5-Hour Energy complies with the provisions of the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act as enforced by the FDA.  It contains No Sugar or herbal stimulants but does have plenty of healthy vitamins.  The benefits are awesome.  I wholeheartedly recommend this stellar product and my spouse swears by it.  For those interested, you can purchase online at Walmart or Amazon.
