AG WellieWishers Book Series {they’re almost here!!!}

WellieWishersLogo

Sewing patterns wellie wishers doll by oh sew kat

In June AG released a brand new doll line called Wellie Wishers {read about them here!}

When they came out my daughter fell in love with them and their adorable smaller size {Welliewishers are 14.5 inches whereas the regular AG dolls are 18 inches} One difference is the AG Dolls come with a book and the WellieWishers do not come with a book, but have no fear in just a matter of days three brand new WellieWishers books are being released and we cannot wait to get our hands on them!

Ashlyn’s Unsurprise Party

WW_DPC92_FL_1sRGB-e1463765543537

When Camille loses two teeth in one day, Ashlyn decides to cheer up her friend by throwing a party. The party is meant to be a secret so the other WellieWishers will be surprised too, but a rainstorm and other woes are on the horizon! Will Ashlyn accept help from her friends in order to get everything done?

The Riddle of the Robin

A robin has moved into the garden, and the WellieWishers couldn’t be more excited! As they care for the robin, they learn new things about what birds like to do and eat. But one day, the robin disappears! Will the girls be able to find the robin and his secret? Animal-lover Willa is on the case!

The Muddily-Puddily Show

WW_DPC93_FL_1sRGB-e1463765486843

The WellieWishers are putting on a show, and Emerson is in charge! There are lots of good ideas – but some need work. Ashlyn can’t see inside her pumpkin costume, Willa has a touch of stage-fright, and Kendall has no idea how to make weather effects onstage! Will Emerson learn to take direction so the show can go on?

REMEMBER these will hit shelves September 1st!

What I’m Loving | August | Minecrafters Bible

unnamed-15

From the back cover “Do you ever feel like it’s more fun to exist in the computer world than the real one? Is that the only place you can control your destiny? Well, God is the original great world builder, and he gave us the power and the skills we need to make changes in the real world. The Minecrafter’s Bible, NIrV contains the full text of the New International Reader’s Version (NIrV) of the Bible (from Genesis to Revelation) as well as 24 color tip-in pages featuring full-color illustrations in the style of wildly popular virtual-world-building games. Featured stories include the days of creation and great builds of the Bible.”

First off no, this isn’t an instruction book of how to play mc4Minecraft {I recommend grabbing the set they have a Costco for that!}

Is your house like mine and at any given moment someone is playing or talking about Minecraft? When I heard that there was going to be a Minecraft Bible I was stoked to get it for my kiddos! I think this Bible is such a fun idea, the idea of combining  faith, creation, Jesus and Minecraft is genius! My kids all genuinely love reading there Bibles and studying God’s word but this Bible has added a fun spin of one of their favorite games.

The color illustrations {understand that they are not fully licensed Minecraft images they are “like” minecraft!} are placed in chronological order, but not next to the story they portray.

mc1

Each of the 24 color pages feature Minecraft as the Characters of Bible stories, including:

  • How To Use The Bible
  • Creation
  • Noah’s Ark
  • Tower of Babel
  • Ten Commandments
  • Building of the Tabernacle
  • Walls of Jericho
  • Samson’s Strength
  • David and Goliath

and so many more

Each picture also has verses and Scripture summaries printed on the picture as well.

I would have liked to see more “minecraft” pages , don’t get me wrong we LOVE the 24 included it would just be fun to have more. Also I would have LOVED to see this Bible in a NIV version or ESV as well!

mc2

This Bible would be great as a gift for the Minecraft gamer in your life! I would recommend this book ALL ages {I have seen many say this is “only for ages 4-10” my question is why? We all play Minecraft in our house, we all loved the illustrations} Mine crafters Bible…what a perfect conversation starter 🙂

31 Day Fit Challenge

31

So the 31 day challenge has taken an unfortunate turn…sadly I will be unable to continue due to a personal injury and more that one family tragedy that needs my attention more than this series. Without getting into too much detail on Friday night I got a phone call while out shopping that my husband had been injured and needed to be rushed for stitches. He slip open his leg exposing his shin bone and ended up getting 18 stitches and what will end up being a pretty heinous scar…it all went downhill from there…out of respect for my family I will not be sharing anything else personal, but if you would please pray for my family its very needed right now! ❤ thank you for always supporting me ❤

Although I will have to take a brake you don’t have to! Next week increase your time to 1 minute 40 seconds then the final week increase to 2 minutes! I will restart the whole series in September! Im really bummed but I will roll with it!
