Finding Noah in theaters one day only-October 8!

Oh where oh where is Noah's Ark?
I believe it's real, if I see it or not, but it would be pretty awesome to know the Ark has been found.



For over 2,000 years, man has been searching for the final resting place of Noah's Ark.  Though there have been many attempts, few have been able to fully explore the one place specifically noted in the Bible: Mount Ararat. 

Located in Eastern Turkey, Agri Dagh or "The Painful Mountain" is the tallest mountain in the region and lies in the very center of a centuries old, geo-politically unstable hot spot.  

With constant threats of deadly rock slides, hidden crevasses, and glacial ice falls, the Kurdish Rebel held mountain poses great risk to any explorer, let alone those performing a thorough scientific investigation.  

Join director/producer Brent Baum and the FINDING NOAH film crew as they follow an expedition of intrepid explorers on a perilous trek up to Mt. Ararat's desolate summit. 

There, using state of the art technology and real-time satellite imagery, this team of archaeologists, scientists and professional mountaineers will begin a grid work of exploration unlike any before, hoping to finally resolve the age-old question: did Noah and his Ark actually exist?  

Shot in never-before filmed locations in the harshest of conditions, this unprecedented feature-length documentary shows just how far men are willing to go to discover the truth. 

Narrated by Academy Award nominee Gary Sinise, FINDING NOAH is more than a quest for answers, it is a testament of the human spirit, where belief and the need for exploration transcend risk and limitation. 



Pretty amazing what conditions and safety the journey of this team of  exposes themselves to in this documentary.

SYNOPSIS
On a cold February night in 2007, a devoted father of four and a seventeen-year-old drunk driver both received life sentences. In one violent, devastating instant, each faced a drastically different and uncertain future.

 But as Chris Williams sat in his demolished vehicle, staring at the car that had just caused the death of his wife, his unborn baby, his nine-year-old daughter, his eleven-year-old son, he committed to do something extraordinary: he would forgive.
Chris Williams’ story is the cinematic tale of how a person can forgive despite the retaliatory tendencies that surface within the dark corners of the human heart, showing the world that hope, love and forgiveness can overcome all when you let it go.

 In addition to the inspirational presentation of Just Let Go, audiences will be treated to an exclusive introduction from radio personality Delilah and a performance by renowned worship pastor and Christian recording artist Lincoln Brewster.

Using Wicker in Winter

When people think of wicker furniture, they often think of outdoor sets. This leads many people to consider them summer furniture. The truth is that your wicker won’t look tacky if used in indoors year round. Use these tips to incorporate wicker into your winter d├ęcor.

Bring Wicker Inside
If you have a wicker outdoor set, you will want to bring it inside before the first snowfall of the year. Most modern wicker is designed to be weather-resistant, but there is little point to leaving it outside if you aren’t going to use it. Bringing your outdoor set inside can help prolong it’s life significantly, allowing you to enjoy the set for many years to come.




Place Wicker Right
If you have chairs or a table that is part of an outdoor set, don’t be afraid to move them to your porch or living room this winter. Place a different cushion or cover on them to make them look and feel like a completely different piece. This can be a great way to get extra sitting space for the holidays without resorting to folding chairs.

Maintain Your Furniture in Winter
Even if you choose to store your outdoor set, you will need to ensure it is kept clean. Many people put their summer furniture in storage without covering it or protecting it. This allows dust and dirt to build up on the pieces. If you choose to store wicker chairs, for example, you should rearrange them and dust them every few weeks to help avoid damage. In many cases, it is easier to find a place for them inside during the winter then to store them!






Purchasing Year-Round Wicker
Some wicker designs are meant for indoors. This means they don’t sport the summer-inspired designs that most outdoor furniture does. Instead, these chairs and tables have more conservative designs that can easily be incorporated into a contemporary home. If you plan on using indoor wicker this winter, try exploring your options online. Wicker Paradise and other stores have plenty of indoor options that look sophisticated all year long.

Book Giveaway: The Biggest Story: How The Snake Crusher Brings Us Back To The Garden.

They are all God's creatures, but some I am not found of-at all. But I am going to be strong and show you about this book. You probably guessed by now one of my least favorite creatures is...

 

When I saw this book was available for review/giveaway, I was like no way do I want to review that book, it is about Snakes. The thing that made me say yes, was the illustration is absolutely amazing. 

The illustrations are done by award winning artist Don Clark, who is also the cofounder of Invisible Creature, and a father.



The book's story is written by Kevin DeYoung, best selling author, and father of six.

The story begins with the Garden of Eden, to Christ's death on the Cross, to the new heaven and new earth. The book is wonderful to read to yourself, to your kids, and for independent readers.  

A beautiful book for gift giving!
About the book:
Hardcover: 132 pages
Publisher: Crossway (August 31, 2015)

Children and parents can follow the Bible's core message and how the Snake Crusher brings us back to the garden, and God's promise.

I just love the illustrations, that I can look past that creature and get to the message of the book. Every page is fully illustrated in color and there is a ribbon bookmark attached to the book. But best of all-the snake crusher is coming back to wipe away all that is bad and sad!

Book review: "They Serve Bagels in Heaven"


While I was reading this book and came upon the part of a tragic car accident where her husband dies and she is severely injured from the accident I kept thinking he must be alive when I get to the end of the book, but he is not. It's not a sad ending but one of hope, love, and everyday kindness.

Irene writes that Saul's soul was out of his body that was still in the car, and he watching the emergency crew, the hospital crew, and his wife. How does she know this? I think Saul told her.

The book is a memoir, told by Saul, written by Irene. It's a love story of their life on earth and the cross over.

The author, Irene Weinberg writes her story of the love and companionship she has with her husband Saul. Dealing with his death is such a loss that she begins a Spiritual Journey with her husband through speaking to him through mediums.

The healing journey also enables you to release those that harmed you physically or mentally in the past and have left this earth. That sounds wonderful, and something to work on in my own life. I don't think I'd be ready to share a bagel with them though! maybe later.

Irene knew her husband was going to die the day before he did. Something told her that, I guess I would have probably brushed that off and say all is well with the world. Who can know that?

He did die in that tragic car accident. They were soul mates and the loss is intense. So how and where does the healing begin? With her Soul.

The author's journey leads her to heal, evolve, and be conscious of what she says and does to others. It kind of reminds me of that "no regrets" saying. Your spiritual journey on Earth goes with you to Heaven so make it a good one!

 Irene Weinberg is an influential and thought-provoking writer on the afterlife, soul mates and our life’s purpose on Earth. Her compelling work on the subject has sparked powerful conversations about the human search for happiness and our soul purpose.

She is a highly sought-after public speaker whose spirited lectures have inspired and motivated audiences at conferences and spiritual get togethers, as well as bookstores nationwide. Popular in her social media communities, Weinberg continues a lively blog and enjoys engaging online with her readers.  

You can follow along with Irene's adventures in the afterlife on FacebookTwitter and Instagram.

They Serve Bagels In Heaven is listed on Amazon for $12.95.
