    Book Giveaway: THE COLSON WAY. read about politics, religion, and loving your neighbor.

    I'm not much of a follower of politics, so when I began to read the book, THE COLSON WAY, I thought I'd be skimming the pages to get through the book.
    I had the impression it was going to be about Watergate. 
    It's not about politics, it's about neighbors.
    It's about how you and I can engage with each other in real life, not on social media, not on a key board, but with enlarging our territory.

    The beginning of the book lets us find out about Chuck Colson, his meager beginnings, his hard work to gain his acceptance into two ivy league schools, his his career, and his family.

    During his "climbing of the ladder" to become the right hand man for President Nixon, his family life suffers, he becomes divorced. He realizes the hardship of the  divorce has caused and how he neglected his family in spending time with them.


    So now the intro is pretty much over, the reader learns Chuck Colson is sent to prison for his involvement in President Nixon's staged break in with the "plumbers" to actually set "bugs" to record office goings on.

    While in prison Chuck works in the laundry room, keeps to himself, and during his prison sentence he learns the state of Virginia has disbarred him, his father passed away, and his family had legal trouble. 
    God sent him to prison or maybe God called him to prison. 

    He was released months before he had served his minimum time, but during that time he was developing his own path, the conversion path. Book writing began, Prison Ministry began.

    My thoughts: 
    I did not know of this person, Chuck Colson, nor did I know of his ministry. This book shares his conversion of a high powered man of politics to a highly regarded person of prison ministry and fellowship.  You will meet those who were his friends, work partners, and neighbors. The origin of the Angel Tree too, does your church sponsor an Angel Tree?

    Why should we help a neighbor, not necessarily the person next door, but the person next to you, near you. Don't be proud and look away.
    Help them in their need.

    Pizza Ranch serves food for the soul with the new Living Hope CD

    Summer nights, pizza, and a song... ready for some inspirational dinner music?
    Well, really anytime of the day is good for some back up, some faith, some hope.
    A time to be thankful, brave, and hopeful. 

    What does a pizza shop have to do with music?
    Sharing, caring, and growing in God's world by offering great food, great experiences at the restaurant, and now a CD that is pretty awesome for car rides, backyard barbecues, youth groups, picnics, gifts, and sharing.

    Pizza Ranch was created by Adrie Groeneweg in Hull, Iowa in 1981. He was 19 at the time and thought why do people have to drive out of town to get a pizza in his area?  With that idea six specialty pizzas were created by his mother , Lorraine and Pizza Ranch began selling pizza with a vision and mission to glorify God by positively impacting their guests. 



    Pizza Ranch recently released a CD titled LIVING HOPE. There are 12 songs from many of their favorite Christian artists. The CD contains new songs written for the CD around the theme HOPE.


    Listen: tap YouTube to hear more of the CD
    Savior's Arms is my favorite song. Good back up for a thankful day or I need some help kinda day.

    God’s Not Dead 2: He’s Surely Alive. film coming to a theater near youthis Easter


    This is from the first movie! When the new trailer is out for the second movie I will post it. 
    GOD'S NOT DEAD - OFFICIAL TRAILER 2
    Are you excited? Here's the brand new trailer for God's Not Dead, and it's AWESOME!
    Posted by God's Not Dead on Tuesday, February 11, 2014

    Stars: Melissa Joan Hart (we loved her TV shows) and Jesse Metcalfe (From the TV show Dallas)




    (Official) About God’s Not Dead 2:
    Scheduled to be released in theaters Easter 2016, God’s Not Dead 2 will have audiences standing unashamedly and firmly in their faith during a time when it seems increasingly unfavorable and divisive to do so in the public square. The film takes audiences back to Hope Springs, Arkansas … home not only of Hadleigh University, but also of Martin Luther King Jr. High School, where beloved teacher of the year Grace Wesley (Hart) helps students understand and enjoy history. 


    Grace’s love of teaching, her love of life, and her love of people all come from the same place: her love of Christ. So when Brooke (Orrantia), a hurting student grieving the loss of her brother, finds Grace at a coffee shop, their conversation naturally leads to Grace sharing with Brooke the hope she finds in Christ. However, when Brooke asks an honest question about Jesus during a lesson Grace is teaching about Dr. King and Gandhi, Grace’s answer lands her in big trouble—almost before she finishes giving her reasoned response. 

    With the principal (Givens) and superintendent teaming up with a zealous civil liberties group represented by an attorney with no love lost for God, Grace faces an epic court case with, the help of a sympathetic and charismatic defense lawyer (Metcalfe), that could cost her the career she had always dreamed of—and expel God from the classroom once and for all. 

    In a story that could easily be pulled from today’s headlines, it’s good to remember some things will always remain the same: "God IS Surely Alive!"

    ZEBRA PEN Floral Collection is more than just a pretty pen.

    ​Believe it or not, my oldest daughter is a high school science teacher! The reason I am sharing this fun fact is because her school year finished on June 26, 2015 and today is July 7, 2015. But wait, this is the big news: SCHOOL SUPPLIES ARE BEING STOCKED ON SHELVES IN STORES.
    Oh yes, it is true.

    I'll admit I love to stroll the school supply aisle much more now that I don't have to stick to a list anymore. My youngest is in college and she is picky with her brands of writing instruments and notebooks so I shop with her, but let her pick out what she fancies for college.

    Although I'm not ready to think of back to school, I do have my favorite brands of office/school supplies. One of those brands is ZEBRA PEN, and they are more than just a pretty pen-I love the smooth flow of writing with Zebra Pen.
