As a member of CWA Review Crew I was honored to be given the opportunity to review Divine Walls crafts inspirational and faith-based vinyl wall art. My first impression of this product was how efficiently it was shipped. It arrived in a cardboard tube with the vinyl wall art rolled up without wrinkles, along with an instruction sheet about how to apply it to the wall.
I read the instructions and thought that there has to be an easier way to apply it. I disregarded the instructions, partly due to the fact that I didn’t fully understand how to complete them. It could also have been a result of being under general anesthesia Tuesday for an out-patient surgery. I have noticed the logical side of my brain is a bit foggy. I pulled the backing off and completely messed up one of the letters. I improvised and used some decorative tape I had on hand to make my first letter. Then I cut out the outline of the rest of the vinyl words. Afterwards a lightbulb went off , finally I figured out how to apply it.
Overall I am very satisfied with the appearance of the vinyl letters. They are a cherished addition to my sacred living space!

In life this world doesn’t end when the egg breaks ,sometimes its just the beginning. When Chicks Hatch is a masterfully written book filled with faith, hope , love and redemption. Author Heather Randall captivated my attention from the start to the finish of her book. Anyone who needs inspiration minus the preachy feeling should read When Chicks Hatch.
Highlighted inside the pages are the lives of five women, whose lives although separately lived, intertwine together. At the heart of each womans story is an element of pain . As I read When Chicks Hatch I felt as if I could see into each womans soul .
Love , betrayal, loss , grief and redemption are spread throughout the chapters. I found within the pages that seemingly irredeemable circumstances can hatch into miracles.
Imagine living seventeen years with a horrible sense of shame and guilt, without anyone to confide in. Although there is one person who you knows about the accident , but you are already at odds with her. These tragic statements belong to a character inside the book titled Halfa Moon .
Author Joan Bannan masterfully draws the reader in from the very first page. After reading the first page I had a hard time putting Halfa Moon down. Meg formerly named Margaret and her brother are kidnapped by their mother from their own home , where they were all three residing with their father.
Meg was four and her brother was a baby . She already at the young age of four felt the strained relationship ,between her mother and herself. The pain of feeling responsible for her older sisters tragic death seared Megs heart and haunted her in her daily life.
With a nonexistent relationship with her Mother and step father , Meg finds solace in the stepfather Georges Mom. ,whom she lovingly names My Lady. Meg finds love for piano playing and also a refuge within My Lady s home.
Inside the pages you find a lot of different scenarios that today’s children, youth and adults are involved with or somehow affected by. Some of them include Drug and child abuse . But are not limited to the two subjects there is also crime and romance.
Meg lands a job at a prestigious and highly secure cyber company . She later finds out she replaced an employee who was killed while working for the company. Once again Meg feels her guilt and shame surface after a colleague and friend suffer an attack that was meant for her. A second tragedy caused by Me, were the thoughts that ran through her mind.
Throughout the book the characters are all intertwined together into a masterpiece that seems so real. Although I knew Halfa Moon was fiction , the characters seemed to leap off the pages and turn into real people . I was pleasantly surprised at the end of the book. I loved it and didn’t want it to end. Hopefully Joann Bannan will decide to revisit these characters in the future and write a sequel to Halfa Moon!

I enjoyed reading Clothed in Thunder to my ten-year old daughter. She loves books with horses . The added bonus is it’s a book my daughter and I both agree on and love.
Recently while engaging in physical therapy , I requested to be instructed by only the female therapist. Due to a traumatic past , I felt uncomfortable being physically guided by the young male therapist . At first I attempted to uncomfortably strain through and ignore the deep anxiety that was surfacing inside me. After what seemed like an eternity, I heard a voice inside me say,”you don’t have to be uncomfortable tell the therapist how you feel. ”
I chose to tell the female therapist that I preferred to only work with her. In that moment I didn’t provide a reason or justification for my request. . She honored my decision to only work with her. It felt empowering in that moment to make a direct request without having to give a justification .
Where in your life would you benefit from using your voice ? I believe we were given voices to express and empower ourselves! If it resonates with you ,I would love for you to leave me a comment about how you are using your voice or how you plan on using it.
