God for the Rest of Us Book Review (Tyndale Blog Network)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.

I received God for the Rest of Us: Experience Unbelievable Love, Unlimited Hope, and Uncommon Grace in  exchange for honest review from Tyndale Blog Network. The book was written by Vince Antonucci. I received a digital copy of the book. The book is Christian-based.

The author discusses how God loves everyone, no matter your background. In Chapter 1, Antonucci says "God doesn't reject his senseless children. His heart is broken and he offers and invitation". God wants us to return to him, no matter what you or I have gone or going through. Sometimes I think God loves me less because of the mistakes I made in the past or currently making. God still loves me and you regardless.

We are all sinners. If you look in the bible, the people, who were the biggest sinners drew closer to God. David was an adulterer. Rahab was a prostitute. Even a criminal on the cross asked for God's love before he died. Antonucci said sinners loved to be around Jesus. God loves the prostitutes, the atheists, the drug dealers, the crack heads, the alcoholics, the strippers, the crooked, and the gamblers. God loves everyone and wants everyone to receive salvation.

You can purchase the book on Amazon. The book comes in Kindle and Paperback format. The book is prime-eligible.

FSL Decimate Ear Protection Review (Tomoson)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.

I received the FSL Safety Earmuff 34dB NRR - Ear Defender, in exchange for honest review from Tomoson.I wanted these to block out noise when blogging or just when I need some peace and quiet. The ear muffs did not block out all the noise, but any little bit helps. Kalen has a similar pair of ear muffs, he got last year, which helps him block out noise and I thought I need the same thing.

You also can use the ear muffs in other noise areas such as shooting, hunting, drumming (and other musical instruments), and racing.

The ear muffs fit comfortably around my ear and was easy to adjust as needed. The ear muffs were somewhat also easy to put back together. Kalen pulled the ear muff from the head piece.

Tidy Globe Car Trash Can Review (Tomoson)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.

I received the Tidy Globe Premium car trash litter bag, in exchange for honest review from Tomoson. I wanted the bag because my mother just got a new car and needed a way to keep the car clean. Since I have a slight investment in the car, I definitely expect the car to stay cleaner than the last car.

The bag has mesh front and side pockets, plus the middle compartment for trash and other car-related needs. Maybe you want to put your child's tablet in the front mesh pocket or snacks in the side pocket. Maybe you want to add some ice to the middle with some drinks and cold food items.

The bag was easy to install. you just snap it around one of the headrests. You also can use shopping bags as trash bags to keep the litter bag clean. The litter bag also comes with a hook for keeping the bag in place. You also have shopping bag holders built inside the bag.

I like the idea of having something in the car to collect trash, especially when you have a big family. You also don't want critters running around your car. My mother was in a small car accident months ago because she tried to kill a bug while driving. Luckily, everyone and everything was ok.

#KhortytsaVodka Review (Tomoson)

I received Khortytsa, Vodka in exchange for honest review. The brand was developed by Global Spirits.

I received 4 bottles of vodka: Khortytsa Ice; Khortytsa Deluxe; Khortytsa Platinum; and Khortytsa Pepper Honey Hot

My favorites was the Ice and Platinum. Since I live with a few alcoholics, I had to get creative with how I mixed the vodka. Khortytsa works well with a little kool-aid and water enhancers. I tried a pomegranate water enhancer, water, and Khortytsa ice, which tasted excellent.

The classic is measured exactly down to the oatmeal and sugar syrup. The platinum is filtered through silver and platinum technology, whatever this means, but it tastes good.

The one, I was most scared of was the pepper honey hot. I tried a sip and passed the rest along to various family members, who love the heat. Too bad, the heat they loved was not the heat in the bottle. :-). The heat in the bottle starts off mild, but works it's way down as a tingle in the throat, then you feel the burn. I wish I recorded my sister's reaction to her first sip of pepper honey hot. The pepper honey hot has a nice whole red pepper inside, similar to the worm inside tequila. The pepper honey hot also contains mint and lime honey.

Each bottle has 40% alcohol content.

Cornucopia Brands Pure Organic Unrefined Organic Shea Butter Review (Tomoson)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.

I received Pure Organic Raw Unrefined Organic Shea Butter, BPA Free Bottle, in exchange for honest review from Tomoson.

When the product first arrived, the shea butter was completely melted, probably due to the Texas heat. I put the shea butter in my closet up high until it turned into a solid.

I have used the shea butter to moisturize the body. I also have used it in conjunction with essential oils. I wish I knew a way to keep it in liquid form to put it in one of my spray bottles or roll on bottles. From google research, I have learned you can mix melted shea butter with oil to keep it in liquid form. Oils may include olive, saffron, or avocado. Another website recommends adding corn starch and water.

 The shea butter is creamy after you work it a little bit or melt it down.

Long handle bath/shower body brush review (Tomoson)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.

I received the Excellent Long Handle Bath / Shower Body Brush, in exchange for honest review from Tomoson. One side had a shower brush with soft bristles, while the other side had nubs for massaging your skin. I also used the massaging side for creams and serums, while in the shower.

The handle was long enough to clean my back. I also loved the nubs, which helped me massage my back and neck. The shower brush did not last long. My oldest threw it against the wall and cracked the handle from the shower brush.

Vellostar sewing kit review (Tomoson)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.

I received the Vellostar Compact Sewing Kit for Home, Travel and Emergency, High Quality Zippered Canvas Case Includes All Basic Sewing Supplies for Mending and Fashion Emergencies, Black, in exchange for honest review.

The kit came with needles, thread, scissors, measuring tape, straight pins, safety pins, and other sewing-related things.

I wanted the kit to help sew buttons on Brad's shirts. He likes to rip buttons off shirts. ( I need a polo shirt with no buttons at all). The only issue, I had with the kit, was the needle container would not spin so I can take out a needle. I ended up breaking the case to use a needle.

Brilliant Babyz Magnetic Safety Baby Locks Review (Tomoson)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.

I received Child Safety Cabinet Locks, in exchange for honest review from Tomoson.The set came with 4  heads, 4 locks, 1 magnet, and 4 outlet covers.

I have reviewed similar locks before and knew how to install them. I did a better job this time around and didn't need tape to make sure the locks and head stayed in place.

I used two of the cabinet locks to replace two of the old locks in the bathroom. I had a leaky sink and let my dad fix the issue. Instead of waiting for me to go get the magnet to unlock the cabinets, he pulled the cabinets open with his hands and knocked off both heads.

The locks do come with a guide to help line up the heads and locks to lock perfectly. I also recommend a permanent marker, to mark the head and lock alignment. It comes in handy later. I also recommend keeping the magnet in a easy to remember place. I keep my magnet in the closet (holder attached to the wall), so my kids won't have access.

Gadgin Bluetooth Remote Control Review (Tomoson)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.

I received Gadgin's Premium Bluetooth Remote Control Camera Shutter Release in exchange for honest and unbiased review. The remote control comes with a carrying case and an extra battery.

The shutter is battery operated and relies on blue tooth technology to operate. The remote control works well with my phone to take photos, but horrible with my kindle to take photos. Instead of taking photos, it navigates through the camera's options. I thought the remote would work well with my tablet since my selfie sticks don't come in tablet size.

ClearBrights Lens Cleaning Cloths Review (Tomoson)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.

I received ClearBrights Professional Grade Lens, Screen & Eyeglass Microfiber Cleaning Cloths, in exchange for honest review from Tomoson.

I wanted these to help clean my glasses; camera lenses, and camcorder lens. I like how the cloths come in a pack of 6 . The cloths did help clean my lens so I can see. It helps if you add a glass cleaner to the cloths, otherwise it requires a little elbow grease to remove smudges.

#DesktekVR DeskTek Virtual Reality Googles Review (Tomoson)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.

I received DESTEK® 3D VR Virtual Reality Headset 3D VR Glasses with NFC for 4~6 inch Smartphones for 3D Movies and Games,Better than Google Cardboard, Adjustable Strap. in exchange for honest review from Tomoson. I wanted to review this because I wanted some real virtual reality glasses, instead of the cardboard googles, I have used before. The cardboard googles do not last. One pair tore up quickly and the other, Kalen tore apart. Trying to fold and tape cardboard down is not my speciality.

With the Desktek VR, I have a real, long-lasting pair of virtual reality glasses for Google Cardboard and other virtual reality apps. Even Youtube has a channel for 360 degree movies.

The glasses have an adjustable strap. It also comes with padding for your nose and padding to help your phone stay in place. You may have to remove your phone case first. I had to remove mine because it is thicker and does not fit inside the case. The padding also helps. My phone was moving a lot. With VR, you have to align your phone on the line to have the games, apps, or movies to show correctly. When the phone moves, you will see the line, especially with games like Crazy Swing and a few roller coaster games from Google Play.
