Getting Inspired with a Journaling Bible for Girls + WIN!

Teaching our children about God and His ways, is one of our prime responsibilities as parents. Sometimes it becomes difficult as the Bible is not as easy to understand even for us adults. So how would you get your preteen, who doesn’t always like to read, or even talk because of all the hormones, engaged in the Bible. Christian Art Distributors has a fantastic answer for this perplexing question. Introducing the Inspired Bible!

Hot Wheels has been bridging the generational gap for 50 years! {WIN!!}

Introducing a potential husband to a girls father is no small feat, as many of you will know. There’s a lot of tension, expectations, and of course, there’s intent. I was especially nervous because my father, a biker, car extraordinaire, and a particularly difficult man has never been short of the wrong thing to say. Their first meeting didn’t go completely as planned. A love for cars, however, albeit differences of opinions about favourites and which are the best, bridged the gap, the generational gap between them. It even laid the foundation, for a beautiful relationship.

Investing your time with your children intentionally – 936 Pennies

Are you one of those people who get to work on a Monday wishing for Friday? Waiting for 4pm? That next holiday or weekend away? All the while wishing the time in between these “events” in our lives away? Me too. Sadly! A few weeks ago though my perspective on time was shifted when an amazing new release by Christian Art Distributors landed on my desk -“936 pennies”. From the day your child is born until they turn 18, you have 936 weeks.

Games and I just knew this was something just the two of us could do together!

Why you should be using the Difrax S-baby bottle + WIN 2 for yourself!

Although Daniel was an exclusively breastfed baby, bottles were and still are a vital part of our lives. Sometimes I really just needed a break. Of course when Daniel started day care, finding a bottle that could mimic the breast without the risk of nipple confusion was a mission. This coupled with the fact that bottles generally cause winds – caused us searching high and low. The Difrax S-bottle is the ideal bottle for preventing stomach cramps, with their unique anti-colic system! Difrax have graciously agreed to treat one of my readers to not just one but two of their S-baby bottles! YAY!

The ergonomic shape of the S-baby bottle allows your baby to lie in their natural rounded position, with their heads raised a bit while drinking. It also allows you a much more relaxed position whilst feeding. Much like breastfeeding, this increases eye contact between you and your baby during this special time, but also allows dad, or other family members to become involved.

The unique anti-colic system ensures a constant flow of air from the bottom of the S-bottle, without causing a vacuum. This means that the air enters and stays at the bottom of the bottle without mixing with the milk. Thereby reducing the risk of colic, burping and vomiting. To add to this, because the air does not mix with the milk all essential nutrients are preserved.

Bottle caps are just for protecting the teats right? Not with the S-bottle, this cap indicates measures up to 30-50ml. This can help you give your baby the right amount of formula or breast milk straight from birth. The teats are BPA-free, odourless and tasteless, easy to sterilise and don’t carry any risk of latex allergies. I think the best part is probably that you can take it apart from top to bottom, which not only is ideal for cleaning but you can replace all the parts too!

The S-bottle’s bottom is detachable, so you can fill it up with formula or frozen cubes of breast milk from the bottom. It also comes in 4 convenient sizes and 2 designs. The sizes include 170ml and 250ml in the natural design, and 200ml and 310ml in the wide design, taking you through all the phases your baby may need.

To win TWO 310ml wide design, 20cm S-shaped bottles, from Difrax! All you need to do to get in on this awesome prize is follow the instructions in the widget below! GOODLUCK!
