It Will be Okay by Lysa TerKeurst *Review & Giveaway

It Will Be Okay by Lysa TerKeurst

In the end, it will be okay because God is always with us.
Whether we like it or not, growing up brings change. For many children, this conjures fears that are sometimes real and sometimes imagined. How can kids learn that even when they face new and unfamiliar situations, they don’t have to be afraid?
Little Seed and Little Fox are facing changes and brand new circumstances—and they don’t like it one bit! Through this unlikely friendship, children will discover that no matter how new or fearful their circumstances, God is always with them. The whimsical art by Natalia Moore will put a smile on kids’ faces and put their minds at ease. Just as Little Seed and Little Fox learn to trust that the Farmer is good and kind, children will also learn to trust God.
Written by New York Times bestselling author Lysa TerKeurst, It Will Be Okay will help kids discover that the end, it really will be okay because we have a God who is good and kind and always with us.
Trim Size: 9 x 9

*ages 4-8

*Great purchase for parents or grandparents who want to encourage their children to deal with fear and change

*Children will learn that God has good plans for them
*Helps kids know that God will be with them through every stop as they grow

God is so faithful, and sometimes reading the scriptures to young kids, goes over their heads. We can glean and allow the Holy Spirit to teach us. Sometimes it is just hard for the little ones whose vocabulary just hasn't allowed them the verbage to discuss the things of God. Lysa TerKeurst does a great job of sharing with young kids, in words they will understand.. the greatness of God!

I absolutely loved the artwork in this book! Beautiful!

Brave Girls Bible Stories #TNBraveGirls *Review & Giveaway

Brave Girl Bible Stories an exciting new brand and storybook to help girls grow into brave, confident daughters of the King.

Young girls will grow in their knowledge of the Bible and in their faith by getting to know our Brave Girls—Hope, Gracie, Glory, Faith, and Honor—five modern-day friends who relate to today’s readers! The girls are each very different, but they all love Jesus and love each other. They share their strengths and struggles and how they discover bravery in women in the Bible. In this full-color, illustrated Bible storybook, the Brave Girls help readers learn important lessons from more than thirty women in the Bible.

Firstly in the book, we meet the Brave Girls! Each one is unique and has a story to tell. The book is divided into Old and New Testament. Each story involves one of the girls sharing some of their own story, and then weaving the Bible story into it. Not only the Bible Story, but making sure to include God and the salvation message of Jesus in each story. After that we get another short look at what the Brave Girl thought about the Brave women in the Bible. She also says a prayer that your Brave Girl can follow.
What an encouraging book for young girls to share not only in the Bible stories, but to see a girl their age sharing her thoughts as well. Very relational in bringing the scripture alive for these young girls.

Three Tips to Keep in Mind When Picking Your Golf Clubs *ad

Three Tips to Keep in Mind When Picking Your Golf Clubs

Complementing your golf skills with a good set of clubs can help you shave some points off your score. But if youve ever stepped into a golf shop or taken a look at an online golf store, youve probably been blown away by the number and variety of clubs you can choose from. So with all the options out there, how do you go about finding the perfect fit? Here are three tips to remember when picking out a set of clubs, so that no matter where you play, be it Murray River golf resorts or St Andrews, youll be at your best.

1. Choose clubs that are the right size -- Even though some may say otherwise, the size and weight of your golf club is very important to improving your game. Golf manufacturers make golf clubs in different weights and sizes for a good reason: because different people require different feels to their clubs. Therefore, you should find out what type of club is most comfortable in your hands. Without a set that naturally complements your swing, youll see you game thrown off as you try to compensate for added weight or off-centeredness. Before you make a purchase, hold the club in your hands and see if you can make a few practice swings with it so that youre confident youre choosing the club that feels right to you.

2. Decide on a short driver -- When looking at drivers, you might be tempted to go with the biggest, baddest one you can find. Avoid that temptation, because although there are plenty of those options out there, tour pros usually go with a driver shaft size of about 44.5 inches. With a short driver, you should be able to hit the ball at a better angle, improving your drive. A longer driver can put you at the wrong angle behind the ball, messing up your shot. That said, if youre tall enough, you may want to consider those longer clubs. Again, you might want to try out your clubs before you buy them.

3. Leave out the 3 and 4 irons -- Why do with two clubs what you can do with one? You may not believe it, but over the past two decades, manufacturers have been tweaking their 3 and 4 irons for better drive and less loft. This is done so that they can say their clubs get better distance. So, if you want the right clubs to give you some loft behind your swing, look instead at getting a hybrid club.

You might have to spend quite some time finding the right set of clubs, but in the end, itll be worth it. Nothing beats being able to perfect your swing without having to worry about accounting for an uncomfortable club that is too big or weighty for you. An easier decision will be finding the right place to try out your new clubs, especially when looking for golf packages near Melbourne. Numurkah Golf and Bowls Club offers golf packages in Victoria so that you and your golfing partners can better enjoy your day of sport with nice golf trips on the Murray River.
