The Grace Card DVD Giveaway!

SignitureI'm a little late getting this review out. This DVD was realeased Aug. 16. But you know how it is when you have kids and want to watch a movie. Every evening is chaos and I'm so use to thinking, "once the kids go to bed I will watch that movie". Then I remembered this is a Christian DVD. Wait a minute, it's ok to have on while the kids are home and awake lol. How great is that??

I saw this DVD for sale at Christian Family Bookstore. You can also order this online at www.thegracecardmovie.com.

What intrigued me about this movie is the theme of grace and forgiveness. Which is something I am struggling with right now. I seem to be able to say all the right things about forgiveness, but can't quite to seem to get there emotionally.

Here is the synopsis from the website:

Everything can change in an instant ... and take a lifetime to unravel.


When Mac McDonald loses his son in an accident, the ensuing 17 years of bitterness and pain erodes his love for his family and leaves him angry with God ... and just about everyone else.


Mac's rage stonewalls his career in the police department and makes for a combustible situation when he's partnered with Sam Wright, a rising star on the force who happens to be a part-time pastor and a loving family man.


Mac's home life is as frightening as anything he encounters on the streets of Memphis. Money is tight and emotions run high as he constantly argues with his wife and his surviving son Blake, who is hanging with the wrong crowd and in danger of flunking out of school.


Sam Wright also never expected to be a police officer. He has a calling—to be a minister like his Grandpa George. But leading a small, start-up church doesn't always put enough food on the table for a young family, so Sam doubles as a police officer. With his new promotion to Sergeant, Sam starts questioning if his real calling might actually be police work rather than the pastorate.


Can Mac and Sam somehow join forces to help one another when it's impossible for either of them to look past their differences—especially the most obvious one?


Every day, we have the opportunity to rebuild relationships and heal deep wounds by extending and receiving God's grace. Offer THE GRACE CARD ... and never underestimate the power of God's love.

I Heart Spinach...No, Really I Do!

SignitureSpinach is so versatile

I buy a bag of spinach each week at the grocery store and there are so many things you can do with it.

The above picture is Wilted Spinach. Heat some olive oil and garlic in a pan, add spinach. Toss and turn until spinach is warm and wilted. Add sliced almonds.

I also use baby spinach leaves instead of lettuce in my salads.

I juice spinach with a fruit or two (you don't even taste the spinach at all). One of my faves is juicing spinach with strawberries.

I make omelettes with spinach in the middle.

Use baby spinach leaves instead of lettuce in your tacos or on sandwiches.
