I was so over the moon when 10ofthose.com got in touch with me to ask if you would like to review some of their products! I love that their heart is to get resources out to as many people as they can and as affordably as they can, and there are often some great bargains to be found on their website. Today I am reviewing three products, so check out what I think below:
Raising Kids in a screen-Saturated world
This is one of the books that 10ofthose.com have published in a series called “raising kids”. They aim to be quick and easy to read, whilst equipping us as parents to deal with some pretty big topics in the parenting world right now. I was able to read this book in a few days of snatched 10 minutes. The chapters are really short so you can read it in chunks, so if you read it cover to cover it would probably only take half an hour or so. The aim of the book is not to tell you exactly what you should do in regards to the issue, but to discuss it within a biblical context, get you thinking about it and provide you with a few tips and principles on how to deal with it. I love that it hasn’t gone for the “ALL TECHNOLOGY IS EVIL” approach, but has accepted we are in a changing world, where we are parenting kids who are digital natives.
Definitely worth a read, and at only £2.99 (with heavy discounts if you order more for your mum friends at church!) it won’t cost you much either (buy it online here). For those of you with babies or toddler, read it and prepare yourself for the future. For those of you with older children or teenagers who feel like they are already failing in this arena, then read it as it will help you figure out a plan to get back in charge. Other books in the series include Raising Kids in the way of grace, in a you can do it world, and in a hyper-sexualised world.
Lots of you mums got REALLY excited out there when I showed you the Devotional Dippers! This little tube brings lots of fun and will help to initiate bible related discussions with your kids. There are little cardboard sticks inside it with a big idea, a bible verse to read, a question to think about and something to pray about too. They are idea for younger kids who want to explore things but don’t have a great attention span! Also great for family discussions, and for those with kids who have just got their first “proper” bible to help them start looking up passages and verses in them.
There are three different packs – Prayer, God and Key Bible Words. They are £5.99 each or £12.00 for all three packs (buy them here). Each contain 40 sticks, so if you did a weekly family devotional it would last you almost a whole year!!
I recorded a video review of this product too, so if you want to see the it up close then do watch that here.
ESV Scripture Journals
My final lovely product to review was less parenting based, and more bible journaling themed. This set of three scripture journals are really lovely. They have a bible verse at the top of each page on the theme – either love, joy or peace. The pages are a lovely thickness and cream coloured with lines in them for writing. I actually sent one of these as a present to a friend and she loved it. If you want somewhere to use as a prayer diary, to explore these three themes, or just to start doing some bible journaling before getting yourself a proper journaling bible then these are perfect.
The RRP is £14.97 for the pack of three, but you can get them all for just a fiver over at 10ofthose.com!!! What a bargain!! Why not buy a pack and give a couple away to friends who might like them?
