I'm a redeemed child of God and the momma to four vivacious daughters. I'm passionate about finding hidden blessings in the trials of life, living it out in an honest and open way, while encouraging those around me to believe in better.


one hand, two hands :: max lucado

That’s right folks!  I’m a Tommy Mommy!!  A Tommy-who, you might be asking?  Tommy Nelson is the children’s division of Thomas Nelson, Inc. and they are seriously all kinds o’ cool!  And since I’ve agreed to be a “Tommy Mommy” it means all kinds o’ cool for you!

How does it work exactly?  Well … Tommy Nelson sends me new books to review … and … to giveaway!  I’ve currently got 3 copies of Max Lucado’s new children’s book “One Hand, Two Hands” to give to three of you!  This brand new children’s book from Max is part of his 2010 OUTLIVE YOUR LIFE campaign. With rhyming text that’s easy to follow along with motions – it teaches little ones ways to do God’s work with their tiny hands.

I’ve got to say … I’m pretty excited about Max’s new campaign … so much so, that it’s my current home bible-study topic.  I feel many people are going to be blessed by it … and I’m not talking about the receiving part of the campaign!  I urge you to check it out

And as a double-fun bonus … here’s a clip of the girls “reviewing” the book and sharing what they took away from it.  Please forgive the boat radio in the background!  We were on vacay when I filmed it and was so into what the kids were saying that I didn’t realize it was cutting us off!  Enjoy!

    LOVED the girls review! I couldn’t help giggling as I watched Hunter playing with her hands. They are so sweet & you are such a good mama. I love how you take time to ensure they understand how important God is. Awesome!

    just telling my friend this the other day. when there is nothing more to do, you have done everything that you can think to do, you must pray about it. there is only one way through, go to the knower of all things & all hearts. he will always change ours through the simple act of honest prayer. great lessons.

    Love Tommy Nelson products. VeggieTales were my kids favorites growing up – especially loved
    “Madame Blueberry – stuffmart” hilarious and gets the point across that family is what we need, not stuff – if your girls have not seen it, try and get it, although we have been looking for it on dvd and only have the vhs version which is now useless to us. My kids now 7th and 3rd graders would love to see it! Thanks for the giveaway opportunity – btw, have never rented a houseboat there but have been and jet skiied all day there – beautiful isnt it? Hard to believe that body of water is in the middle of AZ! Looks like you had a blast – take care. Ann 6leonahpeikjjatousiab;i,e <:B

    I’m with Heather… how do you become a Tommy Mommy? Love MLucado books!

  22. What a great looking book! If I don’t win, it’s definitely on the to-buy list for Christmas book boxes! The only problem would be deciding which to give it to (my own bebe boy or my grandbebes?)


  23. Oh how fabulous!! Please enter me :) My boys love a good story and how fun would this be to pull out on our upcoming 16 hour flight to Nigeria?!?!
