Freedom Mentor Review

Freedom Mentor Review Are you familiar with the real estate market? I’m not personally, at least in any detail, as I have never been a homeowner.

Be the Difference for One Child

Have you ever been discouraged from doing a good deed for a single person, because what can you do by yourself or what good does it do to help just one? I’ve certainly felt that way, until someone explained to me it was like ripples in a pond. It starts small, from one single event…then […]

Grace of God {Movie Review}

It’s not often that we find a movie that is meant for the whole family, unless we go to the “younger” end of the spectrum. And while the movie, Grace of God, isn’t necessarily meant for kids, they will probably learn a few of the lessons being taught along the way. Plus, it’s free of violence […]

The Adventures of Pajama Girl {Book Review}
