Easy way to get FREE Amazon Claim Codes and/or Citi Gift Cards!!

I’ve tried many different survey places over the years. Most haven’t been worth the time, possibly even scams. Opinion Outpost is different! I’ve been with them for about a year, and I receive on average $10 per month in Amazon certificates from Opinion Outpost.  At Opinion Outpost, you answer surveys online. Their surveys are short for the amount they pay, and compared to other survey places I’ve tried, the surveys are user friendly!

Signing up is free. You choose which surveys to answer. You can cancel your membership at any time. For each survey you complete, we say ‘thank you’ with Opinion Points which can be redeemed for cash. It’s that simple.

Voices of the Faithful by Beth Moore

Voices of the Faithful Inspiring Stories of Courage from Christians Serving Around the World
By Beth Moore, International Mission Board
Published by Thomas Nelson

A 366-day devotional with inspiring stories from the front lines of faith.

“A willingness to go is all they have in common,” says Beth Moore, speaking of her friends on the front lines who are spreading the gospel around the world and with whom she collaborated to create this book. This brilliant, 366-day devotional features incredible stories of God’s faithfulness in the face of uncertainty and danger, written by hundreds of missionaries worldwide.

With a foreword by International Mission Board president Jerry Rankin and an introduction by Beth, this volume also includes advice on how to hear God’s voice, pray for missionaries, and understand the church’s and individual’s role in missions.

Voices of the Faithful is a 365 day devotional book with different subject topics each month such as God’s word, prayer, compassion & witnessing. Each month has a separate topic, and Beth provides an AMAZING intro to each month. However, the single page daily devotionals are stories from missionaries around the world.

This was the first book I had read from Beth Moore, and I wasn’t sure it would live up to all the hoopla I have heard… both good & bad. Voices of the Faithful proved to be both good & bad – The inspiration I received from each of the monthly intros from Beth Moore made the book worthy of a 5 star review. Unfortunately I can’t say I loved the daily devotions. As the daily devotions are from missionaries in different locations around the world, I had a hard time putting myself in their shoes. I would prefer to have read more “real life” stories that I could better apply to my everyday life. I would recommend this book, however I’d make sure the reader knew the daily devotions are from missionaries and not Beth. I will definitely be looking into some of Beth Moore’s other books.

NOTICE: I received this book free from the publisher through the a book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own

God Gave Us So Much {Childrens Book Review}

A Must Have!

Continuing in the “God Gave Us” Series by Lisa T. Bergren and Laura J. Bryant is a stunning triology called “God Gave Us So Much“. There are enough words to the story to keep my 5 year olds attention (I frequently will read chapter books to her, so alot of picture books are too short for her) yet the words are simple enough that a younger 2 or 3 year old would also be able to keep up with the plot.

I’m always watching for clearance sales, and normally that is how I purchase books for my kids as well. Forget that with this book, it is a full price keeper! And there are actually 3 stories in book – “God Gave Us The World”, “God Gave Us Love”, & “God Gave Us Heaven”. This is one of those books that is so special to my family I can see keeping it to pass down to my grandkids.

The illustrations & paper quality are the best. I actually find myself wanting to open up this book and touch the pages and look at the beautiful watercolor paintings without even reading the book! There is just the right amount of God in this book that I think it would still be a wonderful book for a family that doesn’t typically buy children’s books with a religious theme.
