Sipping in Style by Kiss Me Organics




As an online influencer I was asked to review the Kiss Me Organics Steep & Strain Ceramic Tea Mug. Of course I said YES! This beaut arrived in a big green box with plenty of packing material as well as a steeper, ceramic lid and BPA free silicone lid. It felt like a lot of care had gone into making sure this item arrived perfectly. I felt the Mug Love!

Super perfect to have a strainer with a hook on the side to just lay over my mug and then voila! my bulk teas do not need a tea ball and I can just easily chuck into my counter top compost bucket.

There is a plug in the very bottom which I appreciate. I will be hand washing it and not microwaving due to the silicone plug in the bottom. But this mug is so ceramic (is that even an adjective?) that the coffee and tea just wipe right out not like those inexpensive mugs which have residue and you need baking soda to scrub it clean. Ya know those end up as pen holders...

The ceramic lid sits snugly atop for steeping and the silicone lid is nice for in the car. My stainless straw fits right in it and I feel quite prepared to head out the door with my steamy cup of tea.

Best of all are the little green double dots on the white background. My new fav color is green on white and so this makes me smile every time I grab the Steep & Strain from the cabinet.

And so 5 stars for this beautiful happy practical product from Kiss Me Organics! And guess what? These generous kind folks are offering a Giveaway on Amazon.

The Way to God by Dwight L. Moody



I loved this book not only because I am a fan of the late Dr. Dwight L. Moody and Moody Bible Institute and the great radio station we have here in Florida thanks to Moody, but because this book was targeted to not on the unsaved but the backslider as well!

Rich with Scripture, although I am not familiar with the Jubilee Bible translation, I do appreciate the references along with Scripture in italics. This way, I can study the Scripture presented in many different translations of my choosing for further study.

The mission statement I believe of this amazing work is a warning to be saved because time is running short until Jesus returns. The Scripture used for this mission statement was clearly Matthew 4:17.

My favorite part of this book was the backsliding section at the end. Although I do believe the call to salvation is much more important, I do believe that this section may speak to Christians who need the wake up call that the author presents for we will regret if we do not store up eternal rewards or are not ready when Jesus returns. I found this section forthright as well as inspiring. I love the clear direct way that D.L Moody presents the truths of God. We need more of this wisdom in our day of ticking the ears of Christians for entertainment-sake.

I love this book because it is the kind of book one will keep in his or her library. It is a valuable tool not only for the believer but for the unbeliever as well. I could see buying this book for a friend as it really is a great tool to teach the unsaved.

So grateful to Aneko Press for offering such a great review opportunity! Such rich, life-changing teaching by a hero of the faith! So blessed!

Earth Psalms by Francine Rivers



Who doesn't love Scripture daily along with being inspired as one reflects on how "God speaks through nature?"

This beautifully illustrated gift book is endowed with rose gold foil along with a handy petite gold ribbon which hangs low in order for the reader to never lose is or her place!

The bulk of Scripture listed in this beautiful work of art is New Living Translation. Other Scripture which is noted is 2011 and ESV. Not a fan of the new NIV so happy to know that the New Living Translation is the bulk of the Scripture.

I love the fonts and the shiny paper. The photographs so beautiful!

At the end of each chapter are 3 sections: Reflect, Apply and Connect with God. This format speaks a weekly devotional to me as opposed to a daily devotion. Francine challenges us to do something "this week."

Many of the week's reading is written about Francine River's family or experiences. I loved hearing more about this amazing writer through the pages of this book.

My favorite chapter was Chapter 15: God's Thoughtful Creation. This chapter was about her trip to Claude Monet's inspirational garden. This chapter was so interesting and unexpected (do not want to be a spoiler).

What a blessing to read and own this fine work of Ms. Rivers! This book has a special place in my heart and on my bookshelf. I will buy many friends this book as it is truly the perfect gift!

Thank you Francine Rivers!

Turmeric Powder by Quiwi Foods



Holy healthy living. This is truly what I aspire to and I aspire to share healthy habits with my family as well. Quiwi Foods has made this endeavor that much easier with the Turmeric Powder they have so generously provided for this review.

First of all, this item is so affordable and the 1 lb package arrived flat and easier to store until you open it. It does have a resealable seal but you will want to store it in an air tight glass container once you open it as it so fresh and pungent. You will want to keep it that way as when you are ready to use it, you want it to be the same bright beautiful color as well so you will know you are getting the most antioxidant goodness you can get! Also, if you do not keep this item in an air tight container, it may affect other items next to it as it can affect the taste of other food items if not in an airtight container. It is that fresh and strong!

I bought a capsule maker machine awhile back and really do enjoy making my own ginger capsules and as well as kelp capsules. This was my first foray into combining ginger powder with turmeric powder. My goal is to cut down on my digestive enzymes during meals. Because this Turmeric Powder was so fine it was easy peasy to mix with ginger (which was the same grind) to make the capsules. The Turmeric Powder did become less powdery and a bit heavier in consistency as there is a high humidity in my South Florida kitchen when I made the capsules.

I have to be honest in that I do not like Turmeric Powder of any ilk in my food and I did not test this powder in my food either. I prefer to take the vegetable capsules which I make instead so I cannot tell you how it tasted in food.

I did not have any after burps with the capsules and I did not have any indigestion so I know this product was high grade and a very important item for my pantry!

Tumeric and curcumin have been shown to reduce inflammation, cure depression, increase serotonin levels in the brain, and prevent certain types of cancer. It is a distant "cousin" of the ginger plant. Why not? Make your own capsules today and save and enjoy holy health!

EnzymeGenix™ by OvitaminPro.com




So happy to have found this must-have digestive aid! This product was my first review for the BetterGenix line by OvitaminPro. I had been using Apex digestive aids for the past year. While they were working well, I did have to increase the amount I took in order to avoid the heart burn which I had been suffering from for so long. As a result, I began spending more and more as I needed to keep increasing the amount in order to feel good after eating. Apex is wonderful but I was looking for a better way to cut my budget.


I took one EnzymeGenix™ just before breakfast in place of the Apex product I had been taking. I was so happy as I had the same results and did not get heartburn! I took this product just before breakfast for 3 straight mornings = success!

I proceeded to lunch and soon realized I needed to take 2 just before lunch in order to avoid heartburn or reflux. I have a very sensitive stomach so after taking 2 I was pleased to have success with this product!


Dinner was a different story though. I do not know if I did not have as good of a result with dinner because we eat so late, or because I take numerous supplements currently with dinner, but even with taking 3 EnzymeGenix™ I still had a bit of burning in my belly.

I will soon be blood testing and seeing my doctor and hopefully will be taking less supplements at night which will help with heartburn. I will give EnzymeGenix™ another shot at dinner after figuring out why I have trouble avoiding bloating, belching and heartburn lately no matter which digestive aid I take.

This product is dairy free, gluten free, and I like the enteric coating so much better than the capsules I have been taking. I also appreciate that it has calcium as I do not take calcium in any of the other supplements I currently take.

Best part is that I am going to save a ton of money taking this product! I would not promote this product if it did not work. I totally agree that sometimes trying to cut corners you end up wasting money. That is not the case here and you will love not only the savings but you will love how good you feel after taking EnzymeGenix™! Thank you to www.ovitaminpro.com for providing so many excellent selections to us gluten free sensitive (but now healthy) people!
