When Calls the Heart Season 3 DVD Collectors Edition Set #holidaygiftguide #sponsored #Hearties

I received When Calls the Heart Season 3 Collectors Edition for review.  All opinions are mine.

Hearties fans can enjoy their favorite moments from season 3 all over again with the When Calls the Heart Complete Season 3 Box Set (Collector's Edition)!  

Hallmark series, Hearties, Erin Krakow, Daniel Lissing, Janette Oke, When Calls the Heart

From celebrated author Janette Oke (The Love Comes Softly Series) comes a rigorous and romantic adventure as epic as the wide frontier.  Erin Krakow (Army Wives), Daniel Lissing (Eye Candy), Jack Wagner (Melrose Place) and Lori Loughlin (Full House, 90210) star in When Calls the Heart, a beautiful story filled with "nostalgic...escapist fun" (Filmintuition.com)!

A strong willed teacher who was foregone the life of the big city, Elizabeth Thatcher (Krakow) has made the small frontier town of Hope Valley her home, with no small help from a handsome Mountie named Jack (Lissing).  But life on the frontier can hand you many tough turns, and so it is for Jack and Elizabeth as they face pressures put upon them by family, rivals, lawless criminals, and even catastrophic natural disasters in their quest to find their place in this remote and rugged land.


This 10 DVD collector's edition includes: (links to my reviews)

Disc 1: It Begins With Heart
Disc 2: Troubled Hearts
Disc 3: Heart of a Hero
Disc 4: Forever in My Heart
Disc 5: Hearts in Question
Disc 6: Episodes 1-5 as aired on the Hallmark Channel
Disc 7: Episodes 6-10 as aired on the Hallmark Channel
Disc 8: Bonus Features/Slide Show
Disc 9: Hearties Family Reunion
Disc 10: #Hearties Trivia Game-What's Your #Hearties IQ?



Hearties, Hallmark Channel series, holiday gift guide, family friendly shows, gifts

This collector's edition is truly amazing!  I love that all of the movie versions are included as well as the Hallmark Channel episodes so you don't miss anything from this season.  Even if you don't have the Hallmark Channel, you can see all of the exciting moments from season 3!

Not only do you have have every minute of season 3, but the bonus features are impressive.  If you were following the Hearties Family Reunion (on the set in Vancouver Canada) last year through facebook and other social media, you will be thrilled to see all the great footage from the reunion on DVD!  It's as close to being at the reunion as you can get.  There are cast interviews and you can see Janette Oke herself.  I loved every minute!

Daniel Lissing, Erin Krakow, Hallmark Channel series, holiday gifts, gifts for her, gift guide

There is also a fun Hearties Trivia Game where you can test your knowledge of the show.  These bonus features would be fun for a girls' night in with friends and/or family!

The When Calls the Heart Season 3 Collector's Edition box set will make a great gift for the Hearties fan in your life!

I can't wait for the 2 hour "When Calls the Heart" holiday special Sunday December 25th at 8/7c on the Hallmark Channel!   




Where to Buy:
When Calls the Heart Season 3 DVD Collector's Edition Set is on Amazon for $39.99.

2016 World Vision Gift Catalog #Giveaway #HolidayGiftGuide #ad #GiftCatalog

I received items from World Vision's 2016 Gift Catalog for review.  All opinions are mine.

Amid the hustle and bustle of family gatherings, shopping for gifts, and making holiday memories, it's also so important to remember the true spirit of the season:  giving in whatever way we can and showing love to others.

Why not consider giving a gift that is unique and gives back from the 2016 World Vision Catalog


holiday gifts, World Vision, gifts that give back

You can choose a gift that not only puts a smile on someone's face, but truly makes a difference in someone's life.

We have pooled our resources with extended family in the past to buy a gift from the catalog.  It's a great way to teach our kids that Christmas isn't just about receiving, but also about giving to those who are less fortunate than they are.
 
The 2016 World Vision Gift Catalog contains more than 250 poverty-fighting gifts, ranging in price from $16 to $39,000, that improve the quality of life for struggling children and families in the U.S. and around the world.

holiday gift guide, gifts that give back

The money raised from your purchase of these handcrafted gifts goes to the Where Most Needed fund, which supports a variety of World Vision’s programs.

Since 1996, the World Vision Gift Catalog has grown in popularity as a gift-giving alternative. Last year alone, more than 650,000 people were helped through funds generated by the Catalog.  More than 30 gifts in the catalog are $35 or less, including items like chickens, job training or school supplies.

Want to see where your money goes? Check out this video from World Vision to learn more: 



We received a sample box of beautifully hand-crafted items from the catalog including home decor and accessories.

I chose several pieces to give to extended family as gifts.  Each piece is beautiful, but my two favorites are the Tree of Life votive holder and the Upcycled Artisanal bowl.  

My camera can't pick up the candlelight glow from the votive holder well, but you can see the effect when the sunlight shines through.  I love the bright color!

The upcycled artisinal bowl is perfect for holding fruit or decorative items.  I love the unique shape and neutral color.

NKJV Airship Genesis Kids Study Bible Plus Giveaway #HolidayGiftGuide #ad #TommyMommy

I received a NKJV Airship Genesis Kids Study Bible plus themed items for review as a Tommy Mommy Blogger.  All opinions are mine.

The holiday season is in full swing and you may be looking at a long gift list for your loved ones.  If you have a child ages 7-11 on your list, a Bible is a great gift idea.  I've been looking for my daughter's first kids Bible and found out about a new kids Study Bible geared toward that age group called the NKJV Airship Genesis Kids Study Bible by David Jeremiah.


David Jeremiah is the founder of Turning Point, an international ministry committed to providing Christians with sound Bible teaching through radio and television, the Internet, live events, and resource materials and books. He is the author of more than fifty books including Captured by Grace, Angels—Who They Are and How They Help, What in the World Is Going On?, and Agents of the Apocalypse. 

What makes this Bible different from other kids Bibles is the themed characters called the Genesis Exploration Squad.  These five explorers (and 2 other special members a robot and a monkey) make it their mission to learn all about the Bible and its history.  

They embark on these missions on the Airship Genesis which is sort of like a time machine that can take them back through Biblical history.  Kids can join the squad on their adventures in reading the Bible through the extra features and interactive website.

“With a new generation rising up, we have the chance to leave a legacy of great inheritance. Airship Genesis: Legendary Bible Adventure means giving our children the truth of God’s Word with the creative content and quality they deserve.” 
—Dr. David Jeremiah


The extra features to this New King James Version® include:

  • Foreword to Airship Genesis from Dr. Jeremiah
  • Introduction to the Bible
  • 66 Mission Overviews exploring the main theme and purpose of each book in the Bible
  • What Is the Bible All About? article
  • 100 Rupert Reports noting interesting Bible story facts
  • 60 Logos Discovery articles to help kids see the main themes of Scripture
  • 75 Power Force sidebars that help kids learn and apply Bible truths
  • 50 Bible Heroes examining important Bible characters
  • 100 Bible Blasts highlighting Scripture memory passages
  • Full-color maps
  • Concordance
  • Full color throughout the Bible pages
  • 32 vibrant, full-page Bible character illustrations

These extra features help kids understand the Bible more on their level.  They also open up great discussions with parents.  If your children are more visual learners (like I am), the illustrations and maps are super helpful!

We were also sent a drawstring bag, an Airship Genesis iron-on patch, a poster and a water bottle. These make great gifts to go along with the Bible for your child to enjoy. Hopefully there will be more themed merchandise in the near future.

I am already a huge fan of the Airship Genesis website. It has monthly audio episodes of the squad's Bible missions, hands-on activities, and downloadable Mission Guides.  The mission theme (and cartoon characters) is appealing to both boys and girls.   My daughter's favorite is the monkey.  She is hoping that these audio episodes will translate to an animated series and games!  

David Jeremiah, Kids Study Bible, holiday gifts, gift guide

While my daughter is a little younger than the recommended age level, I know this is a Bible that she will be able to use for many years as she becomes an independent reader.

This is a wonderful Bible that makes learning the Bible interesting and fun.  It would make a great gift this holiday for children ages 7-11. 



Where to Buy:  The NKJV Airship Genesis Kids Study Bible is available currently on sale for $20.99 online.
