ONNIT

OBRBA new year calls for new workouts! If you’ve been following me for any length of time then you know my love for workouts, and friends, I LOVE my Onnit Royal Battle Rope {50ft. -1.5 in. thick}

From the first time my husband and I used it we were in love with this rope! If you have ever done a High-intensity interval training {HIIT} workout then you know that 30 seconds isn’t a quick as it seems. Add a Battle Rope into the mix and whoa…30 seconds is taken to an entirely different level, talk about a hardcore, body transforming workout!

Never heard of “Battle Ropes”? That’s ok, I got you!

What’s a Battle Rope?

A battle rope is simply a length Onnit Battle Ropes are 40 -50 feet in length and between 1.5 – 2 inches in diameter and weighing up to about 30lbs.

How to use a Battle Rope:

Onnit Battle Ropes are 40 and 50 ft. There are a few ways to use Battle Ropes:OBRAN

  • Battle Rope {Common use}: Attached/wrap the center of the rope around a secure anchor point {like a basketball pole for example} Then stretch out the rope and hold on the handles and you are good to go!ONBR
  • With a Partner: You and your partner each hold on to one handle, stretch rope out {this will result in you and your partner being 50ft apart} and begin workout!
  • Pull Through: Leave the rope coiled up with one handle visible, pull until you reach the other end of the rope

Battle ropes exercises are then done by lifting the end of the rope and making whipping motions {this look like waves} or dragging the ropes back and forth {this looks like slithering snakes} around. The goal is to maintain these movements for as long as possible…it’s hard…but it IS a lot of fun! Check out the Onnit video below!

Benefits of a Battle Rope Workout:

Battle Ropes are great for all fitness levels and they are considered low impact, so really anyone can use them! Because Battle Rope training involves non-stop full body training, you engage everything – arms, legs and core for an amazing calorie torching, fat burning sweaty workout!ONBRA

What I LOVE about Onnit:

  • Fast Workouts {15-20 minute workouts will kick your butt!}
  • Workout with a Partner {My husband and I LOVE workout together! Onnit Battle Ropes take it to a whole new level!}
  • Great Cardio Workout
  • Mix Up your Workouts…NEVER get Board Again!
  • Torch TONS of Calories FAST {300-500 calories per HALF HOUR!!! WHOA!}
  • Build Muscle And Burn Fat Simultaneously
  • Take Battle Ropes ANYWHERE {the biggest ropes are only about 30 lbs.}
  • Awesome Strength Training
  • Build Amazing Endurance

ONBRBWhen my Onnit Royal Battle Rope arrived I was beyond excited! Not only is this rope just amazing…it’s really pretty…sadly it isn’t available in purple any more, however, there is black and gray, black and yellow and black and red!

Do you have a battle rope but you just aren’t sure what to do with it? Here’s an example of the kind of battle ropes workout you could put yourself through. This workout uses the principles of interval training for producing maximum fat loss. Each interval below is performed 15 seconds on and 15 seconds off. Adjust the intervals to suit your needs as appropriate.

Some of our favorite Battle Rope workouts:

ONBRC

  • Double waves: keep a wave in the rope for as long as possible
  • Double rope slams: lift the rope high and slam it down to create as big a wave as possible
  • Moguls: jump side to side to create horizontal waves
  • Jump slams:  jump up and down to wave and slam
  • Crossovers: horizontal waves while crossing arms

They are also great for Gymnasts! We sometimes wrap it {SAFELY} around a garage truss and she uses it to climb…and swing…so do her brothers!!

I highly recommend the Onnit Battle Rope to anyone who wants to gain stamina, do a fun and intense workout, or just simply looking to switch things up in their daily workout!

NIV Biblical Theology Study Bible

The Biblical Theology Study Bible is an absolutely wonderful study bible! This is exactly what I have been looking for  as I read through the bible, I especially love detailed verse by verse commentaries of this bible.

0-15

Lets address the elephant in the room I’ve seen a lot of negativity surround the size of this bible. In a world where you can hold a entire bible in the palm of your hand I would have to agree that yes this big it huge, yes it is heavy, however I do not agree that the size makes it difficult to use or take to church or bible studies, in fact my husband and I take this bible to church every Sunday and would recommend taking it to anyone who has this bible!

0-16

I personally love that there are over 20,000 commentary notes in this study bible! This is so important to me especially when I read a passage that is hard to understand or confusing. Along with the commentary there is wonderful concordance that is more detailed than than any other study bible I’ve ever had!

As with any study bible there are full color charts and the maps. These Charts really bring the bible alive. Some of the charts inlcude: The Lord’s Appointed Festivals, Stages in Israel’s Journey, Character Traits in Proverbs, Timeline of Prophets, New Testament Chronology, The Twelve Apostles and Parables of Jesus.
I recommend the Biblical Theology Study Bible to anyone who wants to study the bible more in-depth.

Preach to Yourself by Hayley Morgan

bpy3

When Preach to Yourself: When Your Inner Critic Comes Calling, Talk Back with Truth by Hayley Morgan arrived I was so excited! I absolutely love her!

bpy1Preach to Yourself is written in a way that makes you feel like you are just sitting and chatting with your bestie! I cannot tell you how many times I laughed out loud and thought “oh my gosh me too!” I love Hayley’s writing style so much, she writes with so much encouragement along with truth, vulnerability and a refreshing amount of honesty!

Over the years I have heard so many say “oh _____ book totally impacted my life” honestly I rarely felt the same way until now. Literally from the first chapter I was changing the way I live. bpy2Within the pages of this book Hayley shares her real life experiences with humility, making it extremely easy for you to identify with her and feel comfortable! In addition there is bible scripture throughout the book adding a whole level of comfort, hope and love. Preach to Yourself is real, practical, honest and so authentic that you will want to get a copy for everyone you know…seriously!

Thank you to Booklook Bloggers for the opportunity to read and review this book! 

Break the cycle of doubting yourself, take God at His word, and talk back with truth – a new message of freedom from bestselling coauthor of Wild and Free Hayley Morgan.

We know Christ came to speak life, but then how come our inner critic keeps showing up and stealing the mic? If we’re honest, she’s a harsh one, saying things we’d never dream of saying to others: You’ll never measure up, you’ll fail again tomorrow, you just can’t get it right. 

It has been said that the eighteen inches from head to heart is the soul’s longest journey. Our head knows the good news is true, but our heart struggles to believe it, and it is in this gap that we battle to believe the promises of God.

Hayley Morgan, coauthor of bestselling book Wild and Free, has wrestled with this tension her whole life. In Preach to Yourself, she tackles it head-on to discover how we can renew our minds to renew our lives. For every woman who struggles with repetitive, negative self-talk, this book will show you how to identify the toxic loops where you get stuck and replace them with the truth of God we can believe with our whole selves.

This is not a “try harder” reprimand, it’s a “believe better” invitation: to take God at His word when He tells you who you are. Come along and learn a simple practice to break free from the lies holding you back, and step forward into the fullness of life God has planned.

NIV Journal The Word Bible For Women

b8

First of all let me just say before we jump in that this is one of my MOST favorite bibles I’ve ever had the privilege of featuring! Not only is it lovely but I love what’s on the inside…but we will cover that in a sec. Let me ask you a few questions: Are you a Christian woman? Do you love taking notes? Do you love to write in the margins of your bible? If so keep reading because you are going to love this!

I’m so excited to share this brand new and gorgeous NIV Journal The Word Bible For Women , this bible is filled with 500 journaling prompts! b7These aren’t your regular run of the mill prompts they are created in a way to help you dig deeper and reflect on the Word to help instill a deeper connection with the Lord! Awesome huh?!

Before we get more into the “journaling” part of this bible let’s talk a little about how pretty it is! It is a beautiful navy fabric with a stunning floral design but my favorite part about it is the cover reads “My Soul Finds Rest In God” intertwined in the lovely gold and red flowers! Please not the outer packaging looks as if the flowers are a coral/pink but on the actual bible they are a gorgeous deep red.

b6

A look inside reveals extra wide margins so you can easily write in them and the beautiful floral motif is carried throughout the pages of the Bible and the journaling prompts.

b5I have a couple other journaling bibles and this is the first one (I have) that has journal prompts and Omgosh I LOVE it! As mentioned about these prompts are designed to dig deeper and reflect more on the passage(s) you are reading!

Extra bonus: These journaling prompts would also be perfect in a small group or studying with a friend. I have let bible studies for years and these prompts would be prefect to start a small group discussion (kind of a ice breaker)

b2

In addition to the floral design, large margins and journal prompts the Bible also includes the a gold presentation page for personalizing prefect gift giving and a satin ribbon marker that we’ve all come to expect in our bibles. There is also an index of journaling prompts by subject.

b1

b9This NIV Journal The Word Bible For Women features the exclusive Zondervan NIV Comfort Print®! What does that mean? It’s basically the size of the print. (9.9-point print size)

Finally this Bible is that it’s part of the extensive Journal The Word Bible family. If you have a young lady in your life I would definitely recommend looking into the companion NIV Journal The Word Bible For Teen Girls. It looks fabulous but my little lady is still a bit too young for it.

365 Devotional for a Thankful Heart

0-2

I’ve probably mentioned it a dozen times but it ture…I love Zondervan gift devotionals! There is just something about the size and the devotions inside that fill me with joy. 365 Devotional for a Thankful Heart does not disappoint.

First off the cover is GORGEOUS isn’t it! Inside it’s broken down into months, making it extremely easy to find the day you need (it also has the traditional silk bookmark)

Each devotional begins with a verse (it notes which version it is from, which I love) then it goes into the devotion that is two to three paragraphs and ends with more of a prayer statement, it’s not a full prayer…example: Make my life a living praise to you, O Lord!

0-3

All in all I really like this devotional and know that many will as well! It’s perfect for a nightstand or your favorite chair where you have morning coffee or tea!

My only recommendation would be to read the whole chapter that each verse is taken from, I just feel that is gives you so much more!

Thank you to Booklook Bloggers for the opportunity to read and review this book!

Jess Connolly and Hayley Morgan, bestselling authors of Wild and Free, walk you through the gift of truly knowing who you are in Christ in Always Enough, Never Too Much: 100 Devotions to Quit Comparing, Stop Hiding, and Start Living Wild and Free.  

unnamed-36

Daily devotional books are some of my all time favorites, I love the size. Devotionals generally pack a HUGE punch of everything you need for your morning. When I’m in a hurry I often toss a devotional in my purse and go (there have been many times when we’ve been running late and I have to rush to get the kids to all their classes) once everyone is settled I can sit in the coffee shop by their school and have “my” time with God!
unnamed-39
One of my current favorite devotionals is Always Enough, Never Too Much: 100 Devotions to Quit Comparing, Stop Hiding, and Start Living Wild and Free! This devotional is AWESOME! Let me ask you a few questions, have you ever felt like you’re just too much for some people? Yeah me too. Have you ever felt like you’re just not enough. Yeah me again. Whether you feel like you’re too much, just not enough or both you have two amazing friends in Jess Connolly and Hayley Morgan who are there ready to love, encourage and uplift you. “Always Enough, Never Too Much” is a super unique flip-book devotional! Read the book one way then flip it and read it the other way! One direction focuses on “always enough” the other direction focuses on “never too much”. It’s like having two amazing books in one!

unnamed-37

How I like to use Always Enough | Never Too Much!

I read a devotion from the Always Enough side, then pray, ponder & journal what I just read, the I Flip the book to the Never Too Much side and do the exact same thing. I like reading from each side because it’s the perfect balance! As women we’re always going through something and this book can truly help so much…no wonder the subtitle is “100 Devotions to Quit Comparing, Stop Hiding & Start Living Wild and Free

unnamed-38

I HIGHLY recommend this to every woman in your life who needs a daily dose of encouragement! This devotional will speak to your soul and give you the pick me up your heart needs, as well as giving you wisdom.

By the way if their names sound familiar, well it’s because Jess Connolly and Hayley Morgan are the authors of WILD AND FREE {one of my faves!}

Discover God’s wild freedom as you find your identity in Jesus with 100 devotions that will help you target and banish lies and insecurities. Jess Connolly and Hayley Morgan, bestselling authors of Wild and Free, walk you through the gift of truly knowing who you are in Christ in Always Enough, Never Too Much: 100 Devotions to Quit Comparing, Stop Hiding, and Start Living Wild and Free.  

We’ve all been there. We know that sneaking, small voice in our heads all too well—you’re too loud. Too quiet. Too young. Too old. Too unimportant. Too ugly. Too silly. Too serious. You’re not as successful as she is—look at her perfect family, look at her high-powered job, look at her great hair and size 4 skinny jeans. Why can’t you be more like her—be more in general? Why do you expect so much from everyone? Why can’t you take up less space? Ask for less? Be less? The lies track well-worn paths in our minds and our hearts, wearing us down and making us question our role in God’s kingdom.

10 Minutes in the Word: Proverbs

Embrace your time with the Lord, no matter how busy you are with 10 Minutes in the Word: Psalms

unnamed-34

After falling in love with 10 Minutes in the Word: Proverbs I knew I needed the Psalms edition as well!

10 Minutes in the Word: Psalms does not disappoint, I loved it from the very beginning, the very first devotional page is
“You, Lord, are a shield around me, my glory, the One who lifts my head. I call out to the Lord, and he answers me from his Holy mountain. Psalm 3:3”

The book of Psalms has been there for me in many times of fear, heartache and struggle, I know for many of you it has been there from you as well. It seems like no matter the situation the book of Psalms can bring you closer to the Lord and being such comfort and hope. This devotional does an amazing job of giving you exactly what you need in small bits to digest and get the most out of it!

10 Minutes in the Word: Psalms is not only filled with so many truths and comfort, it’s also the perfect size to take with you anywhere! It’s beautiful white and blue striped hardcover isn’t too shabby either!

unnamed-35

This book contains 46 devotionals, each includes:
•The Devotional verses
•1-2 page devotional
•Reflection
•Prayer

I just as the Proverbs edition this too is a companion devotional, so each day your are given an excerpt from the section but you need your Bible to read it all and to complete that devotional day!

10 Minutes in the Word: Psalms is fantastic and takes about 10 minutes making it perfect for your alone time with God time or family devotional time.

I definitely recommend this book for any believer in your life!

Embrace your time with the Lord, no matter how busy you are! 10 Minutes in the Word: Psalms offers encouraging insights and meaningful reflections in just 10 minutes. For the days when you most need the presence of God, 10 Minutes in the Word: Psalms is the perfect way to grow in your faith that fits into your busy schedule.

This devotional invites you into the Psalms, a place of praise and reflection. Realign your heart with God’s as you read through the Scripture and spend just a few minutes with Him. Whether you’re on a quick lunch break, between classes, or relishing some peace and quiet during nap time, 10 Minutes in the Word: Psalms gives you what you need to keep going. Just 10 minutes a day will guide you into Psalms, helping you feel closer to God and His Word.
