Every one likes to be heard. I also do not know of a person who doesn't like to get packages in the mail. Well with being a member of Influenster I have had the privilege to do both, be heard and get fabulous things at the door for free. I am part of a product review community in many realms but I have to say out of all of them Influenster has been my favorite. It really does build community not only between brands & the consumer but between the bloggers too. Anyone can join Influenster and become a member even if you do not have a blog.
As a member you get invited to join campaigns in which you get items for free from top brand companies to simple share in your experiences with the products. You will get whats called a campaign VoxBox. You will profrom certain tasks in your dash board as you test the products to share your findings. Kind of like a product investigator! How fun is that! The companies are watching & listening to what you say so your helping in shaping the consumer world. Your friends are listening too and we all do play a part in spreading either negative news about products or positive that can harm or enhance a business as we all know, so being an Influenster is important and it's not just getting free stuff! In my collage photos I am highlighting only just some of the product Brand testing fun I have had over the last few years. There was to many photos to flash back but I couldn't share them all. But this gives you the idea of the range of items I have been blessed to receive through Influenster.com. Not only have I gotten products to try out I have also won prizes after earning badges at various times for the sharing I did! It was always the sweet frosting on the cake of victory.
My journey with Influenster has been eclectic but examples include: I have been able to cook with special items, was encouraged through a product to have a special date night at home with my husband that encouraged us to be closer and take time for each other. I created a homemade purse sized first aid kit with VoxBox items once before, that to this day I never leave home without. I have tried out beauty & hair products that I feel truly enhanced my appearance and of course boosted my confidence. I passed along fabulous coupons to friends and so much more. It has been an adventure and I feel good about trying new things and telling my experience. It has grown my confidence in myself & my voice and was the very first platform that gave me a chance in the product review world! Why don't you join me in the fun and await your own VoxBox!
There has been times when an Influenster VoxBox would show up in perfect time to cheer me up through a difficult day and would truly make me smile!

I was given this product to review. All opinions are my own.
You know I love to find great products to talk about. Well today I have Kozandrew's Glow Chalk. This is a liquid chalk marker for dry ease boards and really any non porous surfaces. This product comes packaged well from Amazon. To my surprise these came within 48 hours of ordering with the standard shipping option. I was pleasantry pleased.
These are great to use on windows. The glow chalk can be wiped away easy with a cloth or paper towel. With Thanksgiving right around the corner we wanted to leave a message for all to see on our sliding glass door. Drawing on the door is so much fun for kids, teens & adults.
I love the chisel tip. They are comfortable in my hand while using. I do suggest pressing the tip down patiently for a minute to active the flow of the resin but once you do that ( the tips are white once you see color seeping in the tip your done) you do not need to press that long ever again. Besides windows & dry erase boards other surfaces you can use these on are fluorescent light boards,black marker boards,advertising boards,whiteboards,plastics,mirrors,ceramics. Just remember not to use on actual chalk boards!

Perfect for writing your ATTENTION GRABBING messages.
Glow chalk earns my Homemaker-Mom Seal of Approval.

Fall has arrived, and cooler weather has come with it. Whether or not you know it, your warm house is an open invitation to unwanted guests looking for a cozy winter vacation: rodents. Each fall, rodents migrate from their outdoor “summer home” to the warmth, food and shelter of their “winter timeshare” – your house!
Being human has its perks, like having a cozy house to enjoy during the winter, but imagine having to survive as a mouse? Try your luck by playing “Mouse in a House” – a choose-your-own-adventure game that puts you in the shoes of a rodent looking to survive the upcoming harsh winter season – try your best to stay alive and see how long you last!

Life has been so very busy for my family lately. Truly. I have 2 busy teens. My son does not yet drive ( long story) so I drive them both around. They have work, college,church activities, my teens planned time with friends,homeschool events, I work part time at home & outside the home. On top of all that throw in trips to shop for needed food clothes, car repairs, doctor appointments and the list goes on. I thought when my kids were little that things would get less busy & easier as they aged. In fact I have discovered it is the other way around. They need me even more than I ever imagined they would at this stage of life in so many ways other than needing rides to places. In the mist of all the business I am realizing how much they still need mom to connect with them and give them my undivided attention. They are most important beside husband of course. I was worried of the day when my kids grew up and no longer needed me when I hugged them tight when they where little. I do so very much miss those days of their youth. But I am learning to cherish these days too. They are great teens. I love them so much and my mothering well is not ready to go out of commission yet. They still need me! I love being a homemaker too. Being a homemaker ( my hours are not much working out side the home) allows me to be there for each of my family member's and support them in all the needs they have. It is not so much taking care of a home it self( which that is part of it too that I love to do) but taking care of those who are in the home in the ways they need! However I also, love to tidy my home. I love to pray over my home. I love to organize my home. I love to cook in my home nourishing meals. I love to create neat things in my home. I love to make it inviting to them & others. I love nesting. I do it for Jesus. I do it for my family. I love that job more than any other job I could ever have. I want them to remember my home as a refuge someday. I want home to be a place that husband & kids love to come back to.
Thank you God for my job as a homemaker-mom!

Clout by Jenni Catron is a great self help book for any reader. Clout helps the reader to understand what personal clout is for a christian. Discovering your clout and how to clean it up and maintain it in a healthy thriving way is key to your own success. My favorite part of the book was in chapter 7 called " You Can't Let Go, Relinquishing Control". I love what she said on page 97 "a longing for power a desire for control is an indicator that we are not content with the influence we've been given". And page 98 " Fear of what you can't control will only keep you from doing what you can" oh this is so true. She talks about so many levels of issues that hinder our success such as: fear, comparison of others, jealousy, insecurity, pride, control, confidence, your passion & more encouraging us how to evaluate ourselves and bring issues into balance. Balance for me at this stage of life is key. My favorite bit of wisdom on page 105 was " I believe God does his greatest work through us when we are aware of our limitations and have to trust and lean into him for outcomes that are too big for us to tackle on our own!" In ending we all have clout and Jenni encourages us to use our clout properly to affect our lives and the world around us to shine for Christ!
