Growing Up In God's Word (Bible Curriculum Review)

 (Disclosure: I have received this product for free in exchange for an honest review. These opinions expressed are my own.)

We have been studying Exodus this year for a Bible quiz we will be participating in at church. The opportunity came along for me to review a Bible curriculum  that focused on Exodus. I thought that this would be a great help in our studies. 

This book has been wonderful!!! Each lesson is designed to be used for 5 days of the week. It is suggested that you use it for 30 minutes to an hour each day. 

One of my favorite things about the curriculum is that both my kindergartener and 5th grader are using it together and both are gaining a tremendous amount of Bible knowledge. 

We have really enjoyed the lesson text and discussion. My 5th grader commented one day, “Whew!!! That is detailed stuff!”

They have also enjoyed being able to use their Legos with some of the lessons. One day they created a diorama of the parting of the Red Sea.

 Another day my younger son used Legos to show the three signs that the Lord enabled Moses to perform. He was able to present his sculptures later that night and explain to his dad what he learned during our family Bible study. 

The activities really help make the lessons come alive and increase our understanding of the Bible. I loved the discussions that we had while making unleavened bread. 


The boys were able to understand what leaven does and why the Israelites were not supposed to use it. When my older son asked if we could add pepper to the unleavened bread, we  talked about obedience and how when God told the Israelites to do something, they were supposed to do exactly as God commanded.

It is great that not only are my children learning, but my understanding of Exodus has increased as well. 

We are really excited that we found these books and cannot wait to purchase more!Click here to order this wonderful Bible curriculum for yourself.  Click here to find  Pryor Convictions Media on Facebook.

Make a Successful Media Kit, Book Review + Giveaway

I received this book free of charge to review.  The opinions are completely my own. The review may contain affiliate links.

I am not new to blogging, but I am new to using my blog to earn money. I have had a hard time trying to find a good resource on making a media kit. I recently got the opportunity to review Richele McFarlin’s new e-book, The Essential Guide to Successful Publicity Kits.  

It is written mainly for bloggers, speakers, and authors.  This book has a media kit, author kit, and speaker kit. It also explains the different kits and the essentials you will need in each kit.  In fact, the information on how to write a bio was just what I needed!

The most helpful resource for me was the printable checklists. These checklists allow you to write things out so you can easily organize the information. There are also templates included to show you how to place your information.  Another great resource is the sample finished kits which give you a better idea how your kit should look. 

I now feel confident that I have everything I need to make a great media kit. I am excited to get started!

Together Box (Review and Coupon Code)

I know sometimes it is hard to come up with fun activities to do with your children. And it seems like this winter has been extra crazy with school being out an excessive amount of days. I have received e-mail from parents wanting to know what kinds of fun activities they could do with their kids so they will not get bored. 

I found this really cool new idea called Together Boxes. “Each box will come with 3-4 carefully crafted activities, experiments and games around a surprise theme. All activities are designed to appeal to a large age group so your whole family can enjoy their time together.”

It is nice because the boxes come to your door every month with new activities. That way you don’t have to spend time away from your kids trying to research new ideas. You can spend that time playing!!

You sign up for a subscription and a box full of activities will come to your door.  To get a better idea of what a Together Box is, you can look at these sample boxes

The boxes come with everything you need in order to have hours of fun!
This would be something great to have during Summer!
