Keepers of the Faith Book Review and $25 GC giveaway!

Gift Guide Post #33

Hello Neighbors!

This is a busy week with our Gift Guide.  Remember you can visit our Gift Guide page under the Items of Interest in our sidebar to see the posts already completed of companies participating in the 2011 Gift Guide At the Fence.  Just in case you want to visit one of their sites again!  Now on to Keepers of the Faith.  I already told you quite a bit about them in  a previous post, but this time I have a book of theirs to tell you a little bit about.

The book is called The Young Pilgrim by A.L.O.E.  A.L.O.E. stands for A Lady of England.  Charlotte Maria Tucker She wrote many books, and and her latter years spent time on the mission field.  Originally this book was published in 1871.  It is meant to be a child's companion to Bunyan's great work, Pilgrim's Progress.  It is to help younger children who can not yet grasp some of the allegory in the story and to help them understand a little better.  Before we start, I will tell, you that Pilgrim's Progress is a favorite in our family.  I collect old copies of the story.  Especially ones that have pictures.  I have several written especially for children.

On with our story!  This is a story of 2 young men, Mark and Charles as they journey toward heaven.  It tells of trials and temptations they face, along with their failures and successes.  Each chapter starts with a quote from Pilgrim's Progress.  This book is full of spiritual lessons, that will help both children and adults in their Christian walk.  I am very impressed.  This is the first book I have read by A.L.O.E., and I have decided, I will be looking for more.  Lessons will be learned on telling the truth, not stealing, controlling our tempers and our tongues.  I know that this book will be a blessing in your life.  I really don't want to give away what occurs in the story, because I personally dislike to have someone tell me the whole storyline, when I can read the book and enjoy it myself.  So I will leave it up to you to purchase the book and find out what happens.  I will add that my 14 year old daughter read the book and really enjoyed it.  My 11 uear old is reading it next.

Keepers of the Faith has many other books by A.L.O.E. along with books by various other authors.  Be sure to check them out.  I also want to tell you about a Facebook promotion going on.  You have to like their Facebook page by November 12th, so hurry, you don't have long, but they are giving away a $200 GC and 4-$50 GC to random people who like their Facebook page.  Believe me it is well worth the effort to try.  I did!

Keeper's of the Faith has many great gifts on their website, and their prices are very reasonable.  This is a way to encourage your children and grandchildren to read good books, that teach them about the Lord, and their Christian walk.

Now, Keeper's of the Faith will be giving the winner of this giveaway a $25 Keeper's of the Faith GC.  Be sure to enter!

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
