Wisdomantics Game Review






















My family and I love to play board games. I was given the opportunity to review a game called Wisdomantics.

What is Wisdomantics?
Wisdomantics–New King James Version (NKJV) is an interactive DVD board game for players of various faiths who desire to gain the vast wisdom of King Solomon. Wisdomantics-NKJV utilizes the proverbs of Solomon and blends chance, knowledge and strategy to create a fun experience while you learn! The game’s intent is to bring individuals together to learn how to cope with numerous situations in a fun and relaxed environment. Inside the box you’ll find 2 interactive DVDs with 400 questions, score cards, blessing cards, and more!

For 2-4 plates, ages 12+. It is available on the website for $29.95.

Below is a video that explains how the game is played:



My Review:
We are regular church attenders and my children think they know their Bible. Even though the game says for ages 12 and up, my 11 year old son and 9 year old daughter wanted to play. I played the game with my three older children. My 12 year old son did great with understanding the game and answering the questions. My 11 year old did okay. My 9 year old din't get many answers right, but she had a fun time learning. This was a fun game to play and we look forward to playing this game many more times.

Parenting Unchained ~ Book Review

*This post may contain affiliate links*

For the past several weeks, I have been reading a great new book for parents, Parenting Unchained: Overcoming the Ten Deceptions That Shackle Christian Parents by Dr. James D. Dempsey. This book is available at the website for $14.95 for a nice soft cover 190 page book. If you prefer a Kindle version, it is available for $ .99 this week only (December 8-12, 2014).

About the book:
In Parenting Unchained – Overcoming the Ten Deceptions that Shackle Christian Parents, Dr. James D. Dempsey reveals the ten most destructive lies about parenting. He writes from the heart about the way these lies infected his own parenting, and illuminates the Bible's powerful truths that counter each lie. Both Biblical and practical, each section ends with home activities to help parents take immediate steps to develop their kids' character--character that lasts when they leave home.

The last chapters focus on the most important adjustments parents must make with teenagers to prepare them for independence. Weaving humor into strong warnings, Parenting Unchained points out the hazards that derail the parenting journey.

My Review:
Dr. Dempsey discusses ten deceptions in the book that parents believe. Those ten deceptions are as follows:

  1. It's All About Your Kids; Your Character Doesn't Matter
  2. You're Capable; You Can Do This
  3. God Only Cares About Rules
  4. You Can Be A Parent Without Investing Much Time
  5. Teaching The Right Information Is Enough
  6. Why And How You Discipline Don't Matter - Just Make Them Obey
  7. You Don't Need To Talk About Your Faith
  8. Children Should Choose Their Life Course (You Don't Need To Help Them)
  9. It's All About Consistency (You Don't Need To Adapt)
  10. Life Should Be Easy
 Satan is out to destroy families. we need to remain focused on God and  pray for His help while we parent our children. In the book, Dr. Dempsey says, "God's model for parenting will help you avoid the deceptions that seek to destroy both you and your children." Keeping God first in your life and praying for His help will keep Satan away. But Satan will try his hardest to get to your children, so we need to be vigilant.

Some of my favorite quotes from the book are as follows:

"But parenting is about your character, because it forms the foundation for all you do as a parent. " page 15- This comes from the very first page. It really spoke to me because my character as a parent really does form the foundation of my parenting.

"To be like Jesus, parents must be fully engaged in the task of parenting. They must think about and empathize with their children." page 55- This come from deception four which says, you can be a parent without investing much time. False. To be a parent, you need to spend time with your children. 

I enjoyed reading this book very much. This book has helped me already and I know will be a great help in the weeks, months, and years to come.

Susie's Hope DVD ~ Review and Giveaway

I was recently given the chance to review a movie, Susie's Hope.

About Susie's Hope:

Based on the true story that successfully passed Susie’s Law in North Carolina, which seeks stricter punishment for animal abusers, Susie’s Hope brings to life the inspirational relationship between pit bull attack survivor Donna Lawrence and Susie, a pit bull-mix puppy found beaten, burned and left for dead. Recognizing reflect and abuse were to blame for the tragic attack that nearly claimed her life 10 months earlier, Donna resumes the battered animal and accepts her as family. Together, they learn to heal, love and forgive as they lead a historic effort to seek justice and protection, not only for Susie, but all animals.

My Review:

Living in North Carolina, I was surprised to learn this movie was a true story based on an event that happened in North Carolina. I had not heard of this story or this law even though I have lived here for 16 years. This movie was a little slow to start with, but once it got to the main story line, It was great. I watched this by myself, because I wasn't sure how graphic it would be. While it is graphic, you can tell that the burned dog is not a real dog, but a robotic dog. I think my boys, who are 12 and 11, would like this movie. They love animals. I give this movie 4.5 out of 5 stars!
