The Voice Bible Translation

The Voice bible translation is a translation that puts the bible into everyday language. It reads more like a script than a book, and is available in e-book form, as well as in print. I didn't find it exceptionally user friendly, but that could just be that I am so used to the version I use, and am particular to it. In my opinion, anything that brings the bible to life, makes it easier to absorb and understand, and gives it accessibility is a plus in my book. (No pun intended!) 

This version of the bible has some similarities to "The Message" although the Voice uses several writers including an award winning fiction writer, a pastor, and a poet, while the Message is written by one individual. Both versions take certain liberties, the message in the way it sets up scenes, making them more contemporary, and the Voice in the names it gives to individuals in the bible.

If you are looking for something to refresh your bible reading, this could be the answer for you. If you are looking for a more traditional bible read, this bible would not be a recommendation I would give you.

Vicks Gentle Touch Behind Ear Thermometer Giveaway

This is the thermometer I wish I had when my children were infants. When a baby or child is sick, the last thing they want is to be prodded and poked. They want to be held, loved, and comforted. Us parents, on the other hand, want to know as much as possible about what is making our little bundle of joy so miserable. We want information. This thermometer gives us that information with just a touch behind the ear. It doesn't need to be held there for more than a second, and has a feature called Fever Insight® which uses colors to tell the user if the fever is "OK", "Mild" or "High".  

I will giveaway this thermometer to the first person that tells me how the temperature is taken from behind the ear.  Good luck!

Palmolive Fresh Infusions

A couple of weeks ago, I received a package in the mail from influenster.  I was so excited when I opened it and found three full sized bottles of Palmolive's new product, Fresh Infusions.  I love the scents of these dish soaps, but what I really like is the packaging.  It is cheerful, yes, I said cheerful!  Sleek, and classy.  The scents aren't overpowering, and it works like a charm.  If you haven't heard of influenster, I encourage you to check it out if you have any kind of online presence.  It's a great way to try out new products, and share them with your friends.  I have been sharing with my friends Palmolive's new product, and so far, they love it!

-----OK so right in the middle of writing this post I had to go pick up my son from kindergarten, he has a tummy ache.  Something else this stuff is good for, getting rid of germs!  So if my post seems a little disjointed thats why.-----

Anyway, I love this product, the packaging, and Influenster!  I encourage you to try it, and let me know what you think!
