GIVEAWAY!!! – Wise Words For Moms and Reaching The Heart Of Your Child

by bosssanders on September 26, 2013 with 22 comments

I am SUPER excited about this giveaway!!

As most of you know, Wise Words For Moms and Reaching The Heart Of Your Child are two of my favorite resources (see HERE and HERE).

WELL, Ginger has graciously agreed to do a giveaway for these on www.bosssanders.com!  How fun!!

For those of you not familiar with these great resources, let me catch you up:

Wise Words for Moms (and dads!) by Ginger Plowman.  I really really like her teaching on parenting and disciplining kids.  Her flip-book is GREAT for a quick-glance on how to get to the heart of issues.  She lists out different topics (whining, disobeying, etc) and then gives heart-probing questions, scripture to explore with your kiddos on why it’s something we don’t do and then examples to help build them back up.  It’s easy to treat the surface issue, but this is great for tackling the heart issue by using motivation rather than fear of punishment.

In her audio cd set, Reaching The Heart Of Your Child, Ginger Plowman takes the Wise Words For Moms booklet and really breaks it down.  She gives GREAT insight on how to effectively teach your children from the core, not just teaching them not to (insert thing here).  For example, she teaches us how to teach our kids about KINDNESS or RESPECT… not just “don’t hit,” “don’t kick,” don’t throw a marshmallow at Lucy’s head,” etc.  If we simply focus on the outward behaviors, our very creative children will consistently come up with new ones.  However, if we arm them with deep lessons and scripture, they will eventually be able to catch themselves in the act and be able to stop themselves AND take these lessons into adulthood.  Ginger takes time to explain WHY we must speak to our kids’ hearts instead of simply using physical consequences (time-outs/ins, taking toys away, swats) alone.

Ready For The Details?

This giveaway is for one gift set of a Wise Words For Mom flip book and Reaching The Heart Of Your Child CD set.

NEW FIND OF THE WEEK: EcoJarz – Review and GIVEAWAY!!

by bosssanders on September 12, 2013 with 117 comments

Have you ever wondered what you could do with all of your spaghetti and peanut butter jars?

Or, had you wondered what kind of safe drinking cup you could take with you on the go that was as safe on your pocket book as it was on your body and the earth?

I have found the perfect fit…literally!!

Meet EcoJarz!

EcoJarz has made two types of lids for your drinks… silicone or stainless steel in both regular or large-mouth sizes (meaning it should fit most of your jars!).  These lids are super special: they don’t contain bpa, phthalates, or leach chemicals!!  Not only are they safe for YOU, but they are great for the environment and your pocket-book by allowing you to re-use all of your peanut butter, jam, and spaghetti jars!

Handy, right?

The lids are perfect for drinking your smoothies, tea, water, etc on the go as they keep your drink from splashing out.

And, for those of us who LOVE smoothies, they’ve created stainless steel smoothie straws (as well as regular straws for thinner drinks).

The VERY BEST PART is that  EcoJarz sent me extras to share!!

Are you ready for a GIVEAWAY?

We are giving away TWO sets (so, there will be TWO winners) of :

-TWO large mouth stainless lids
- ONE smoothie straw
-ONE regular straw
-One straw cleaner

HOW TO ENTER:

To enter, simply leave a comment.

For an extra entry, share THIS link and the following on your facebook account (be sure to come back here and let me know you did this so I can count it for you!):  “Check out this great giveaway over at bosssanders.com!  It made my day!”   (NOTE: Be sure to copy the message AND share the link to this post or it won’t count!)

For a third entry, make sure you “like” Bosssanders.com on facebook!  (Again, come back and let me know in comments that you did this!)
