“A Christmas for the Ages” on Great American Pure Flix 11/26/23

 Many thanks to Great American Pure Flix for providing a sample of this product for review. Opinions expressed are 100% my own.

First off, Happy Thanksgiving to all of my American friends! I hope you’re loving time spent with friends and family today. May your turkey be perfectly flavorful and moist, and your pies leave you content. If you’re among the population that waits until after Thanksgiving to do anything Christmas related, tomorrow is the big day.

Halloween crafts to use up your yarn stash

This post may include sponsored links. All opinions are my own

If you're anything like me, you have *somehow* accumulated more yarn than you'll ever be able to use. It's hard to let go of that precious yarn because you know it's worth. 

However, if you've realized it's time to use some of it up, here are a few fun Halloween crafts/activities to do so:

1. Giant spider's web: let your kids go wild between two trees/other objects in your front yard. I made a giant spider's web one year, and ever since, my kids love doing it themselves. This year, my 9 year old made our spider's web on her own and spent hours happily working on it.

Just hand them the skeins of yarn you're ready to let go of, and set them loose!

"Birthright Outlaw" on Great American Pure Flix

  Many thanks to Pure Flix/Great American Pure Flix for providing a sample of the product for this review. Opinions expressed are 100% my own.

Sometimes I feel like my generation was robbed to a degree. I grew up long after the western classics were filmed. While I did watch some, and have some knowledge of the great actors/actresses, I had limited exposure to western films. 

Great American Pure Flix is giving us a chance to get a taste of the old western style with their latest release, "Birthright Outlaw". In this film, a pastor named Jeremiah and his wife Martha are living out in old west Arizona. Their life seems perfect despite the hard living conditions, and their family appears to be happy. (Granted, that's how it always seems in movies!). One day, their daughter is kidnapped and everything the pastor thought he knew about his wife comes into question. 

Martha is played by Sarah Drew, who you may recognize from Grey's Anatomy! The cast is wonderful, and I enjoyed the story. "Birthright Outlaw" is available on Great American Pure Flix now. It's a simply lovely story of faith, loyalty, and family. Watch a preview here.

“Divine Influencer” on Great American Pure Flix

 Many thanks to Pure Flix/Great American Pure Flix for providing a sample of the product for this review. Opinions expressed are 100% my own.

If you haven’t noticed, Pure Flix is no longer just Pure Flix…they have merged this week with Great American Movies, and are now Great American Pure Flix. Not to worry, they will still have wholesome, clean films and shows for the whole family to enjoy. Hopefully, the shows will only get better and have more variety with this merger. 

Now, to the reason I’m posting. Great American Pure Flix released a new movie today. That movie is “Divine Influencer”. It wasn’t until I was watching the movie that I realized the word influencer in the title was because the main character is a social media influencer. She enjoys a life of privilege until her parents cut her off and she loses everything.

In an act of desperation, she accepts a job at a homeless shelter. Throughout the movie, the main character learns that influencing others can have so much more meaning than the everyday “influencing” in social media or other means. This movie is a great reminder of what’s truly important in life, and how we can use our talents and gifts to influence others for the better.

I think this was one of my favorite movies so far and I hope you will enjoy it too. Let me know what you think!

Getting Into Crafting: Everything You Will Need

This is an affiliated post. All opinions expressed are in agreement with my own.

Crafting has long been a favorite activity across the world, and it continues to be so right now. It has even perhaps seen growing popularity in recent years, thanks perhaps to the effect of being at home more since covid, and because of a growing yearning for creative outlets. If you are keen on getting into crafting, then there are a few things that you will need to bear in mind, and it’s something that you are going to want to think about for sure.
