A New Start

And we are BACK!

In a new home, in a new place, living our life as always!!  It's awesome!  And this internet is soooo much better than my last one so you'll be seeing lots more from me this coming year.

Guess what?!!

We will also be coming back with more reviews from the Homeschool Review Crew!  That's right, we were asked to return for 2018!  I'm so excited to share new reviews with you all this year.  We love using these products for our homeschooling and our reading fun too.

Look forward to some videos this year as well.  My 17 year old is really getting into videos so he'll be helping me to grow this blog with video reviews.  I'm excited for this addition.  He is as well.

So I'm going to keep this short and sweet for now but look for lots more to come to our little blog very soon. 

Love and blessings to all,

Let The Little Children Come {Crew Review}



You may remember that around Halloween we did a review for Let The Little Children Come.  It was an evangelism pack of pumpkins to be shared with others in order to share God's word during a Holiday many choose not to celebrate.  It was a great way for Christians to reach out and speak to others about Jesus at that time.  



For this review, we were sent the Gospel Tracts and Evangelism Tools Sampler Pack from Let The Little Children Come.  These products are an awesome way to reach out and share the gospel with others.  

This packet contain 10 colorfully, engaging items that are designed to share God's word with children.  Button flip-outs, The True Story of Christmas Animated Tracts, The Lost Easter Egg Pop-up Tract, a Silicone Salvation Bracelet, a Wordless Bracelet Kit and much more help children link God's word to their lives and helps you as a parent or advisor to make this happen.

The Bible tells us to reach out and share the Gospel with others.  It tells us that our children are the place to start building a love for the Lord.  These wonderful tools help to make that happen by giving Biblical quotes for our children to build upon, by giving them physical items that point them towards Christ's love and by leading them to learn about God's greatest gift to the world.

Each item that fills the Gospel Tracts and Evangelism Tools Sampler pack is specially picked to assist you in bringing your children, or the children in your life, closer to Christ.  Each item has a different lesson and meaning to help you make this happen.  Each item is special and unique for this reason.

Forbrain {Crew Review}


I've spent my life as a blogger, an author, and a singer.  I've often wished for a device that could help me hear myself better, that could help me fine tune my thoughts and hear my words, a device that could help me to actually hear my tone and my annunciation.  Forbrain from Forbrain - Sound for Life Ltd helps with all of this!



Forbrain helps with language development and with learning.  It's basically a digital phonics phone, designed as a headset with a microphone that you speak into and you can literally hear yourself speak.  The device is developed with a dynamic filter which filters the sound of your voice and plays it immediately for you.  The dynamic filter pushes the sound over to the Bone Conduction transducers.  This is what allows you to actually hear yourself speaking through the device.  A high quality, repostionable microphone is what captures your voice in the beginning.

Forbrain works for 6 hours before dying out.  It takes around 3 hours to charge.  It's black with blue transducers.

Everyone in our family used this device.  I even let our nieces and nephews give it a trial run.  It's a little odd at first because, well let's face it, we just aren't used to hearing ourselves speak so that can be just a bit odd until you get used to it. 

Forbrain is just awesome.  I could see this device being used in choral groups everywhere.  I sure wish I had one when I was in Chorus during high school.  It would have helped with tone so much.

Speech and debate teams would be another great place to use this product.  Public speaking is sometimes scary because we struggle to hear ourselves.  This product can help boost speaking confidence for users, putting them a step ahead when competing.

I found it's greatest use for us was with Winston, who is often really shy and is wanting to expand his speaking abilities at 17.  He's ready to go forward in the world but struggles a little in talking to others, so this device has helped to boost his speaking confidence.  He can wear it a while and listen to himself and his personal responses then further develop them into better choices in speech.

The device also works amazingly well for Laycie who often stutters when she speaks and sometimes gets caught on her words.  She's able to wear the device and it helps her hear and think as she speaks.  This has tremendously helped her stuttering and her confused speech during the day.  We will be continuing with using Forbrain to develop her voice over the next year.

This device has helped my children gain confidence in their speech.  I've personally used it as well to help boost my own speech and my singing confidence.  It's worked great for both uses!

It is recommended that using Forbrain for 15 to 20 minutes a day for around 6 weeks can increase speaking ability and brain function.  Use it for reading, writing, singing, and more.  It's a great device to use all the time.  Forbrain costs $239 but is worth every dime.
