* Free e-Book! Coming Back Stronger by Drew Brees! *

Head over here to download an e-copy of Coming Back Stronger: Unleashing the Hidden Power of Adversity by Drew Brees for free! It is normally 15.99 but right now on Amazon you can download it for free! I have not read the book, but it has excellent reviews! 

Here is a snippit from the inside cover:

"What doesn’t kill you makes you STRONGER.

After a potentially career-ending shoulder injury left quarterback Drew Brees without a team—and facing the daunting task of having to learn to throw a football all over again—coaches and commentators across the NFL wondered, Will he ever come back?
When Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans in 2005, leaving more than 80 percent of the city underwater and almost two-thirds of the population homeless and displaced, people the world over wondered, Will the city ever come back?

And with their stadium transformed into a makeshift refugee camp, forcing the Saints to play their entire 2005 season on the road, legions of sports fans wondered, Will the Saints ever come back?

Four years later, not only have Drew Brees, the Saints, and the city of New Orleans come back, they have returned stronger and better than ever before.

Set amid the backdrop of one of the worst natural disasters in U.S. history, Coming Back Stronger is the ultimate comeback story, not only of one of the NFL’s top quarterbacks, but also of a city and a team that many had all but given up on.

Drew’s inspiring message of hope and resilience proves that with enough faith, determination, and heart, you can overcome any obstacle life throws your way and not only bounce back but come back stronger than you ever imagined possible." 

If you are interested in downloading it head over here to download your copy today. It is available for Kindles. If you do not have a Kindle, you can download one of the Kindle Reading Apps located over here, so that you can read it on your smartphone, computer or tablet. Amazon prices can change at any time, so make sure that you check the price before you purchase it.

** Sunday's Scripture & Inspirational Song **

It's been a long time since I have done Sunday's Scripture and Inspirational Song.

Just thought I would share..... I hope you enjoy it and it speaks to your heart as it did mine!

Psalm 91:4
New Living Translation (NLT)

"He will cover you with his feathers.
He will shelter you with his wings.
His faithful promises are your armor and protection."

Acts 4:12
New Living Translation (NLT)

"There is salvation in no one else! God has given no other name under heaven by which we must be saved."

** My 2013 Bible Reading Plan **

One of my goals this year is to read the entire Bible. I have tried on many occasions, but haven't completed this goal yet. I tried to do the "Bible in 90 Days" reading plan a couple of times, but that reading plan does not fit my lifestyle right now. This year I am going to try to read the entire Bible on the 6 month reading plan, but not follow the plan on Sundays. It will be 184 days of actual reading; but since I won't be reading on Sundays, it will take me a little longer than six months, but that is okay with me. If you would like to read along with me, I would love for you to! :) The complete reading plan can be found here; and here is the reading for this week:

Jan. 21- Genesis 1-6
Jan. 22- Genesis 7-12
Jan. 23- Genesis 13-19
Jan. 24- Genesis 20-25
Jan. 25- Genesis 26-32
Jan. 26- Genesis 33-38

If you would like to read along with me, just leave me a comment below to let me know you're in; and I will post the weekly reading each Sunday!

Have a blessed week!

**Product Review: Covergirl Blastflipstick + Giveaway! **

I had the opportunity to review Covergirl blastflipstick from BzzAgent. I received the package which contained:

  • Three full-sized COVERGIRL blastflipsticks (in Stunner, Vixen and Minx)
  • Pass-along coupons

The Claims:
  • Ultra blendable formula allows you to mix shades, just like a make-up artist
  • Dual ends let you create the current "ombre" trend on your lips!
  • Dual-sided stick features a creamy color on one end and a shimmery shade on the other
  • Created by expert make-up artist, and COVERGIRL Global Creative Design Director, Pat McGrath
  • 13 colorful, complementary and expertly matched shade duos
  • Moisturizing formula mixes perfectly without feeling heavy or dry

Each COVERGIRL blastflipstick yields an array of stunning colors within each blendable duo and has unlimited potential to create customizable looks for every season. Blend and design your unique lip look in seconds:
  • Glide on the creamy end of the stick, layering as desired
  • Use the shimmery end of the stick to finish the look, sweeping on layers to blend or highlight to perfection
  • Mix and match shades for your one-of-a-kind look
Available shade duos:I
  • Whisper: Taupe and pearl pink shades
  • Pucker: Light berry and lilac shades
  • Glimmer: Dark berry and soft pink shades
  • Flashy: Dark berry and lilac shades
  • Vixen: Burgundy and pearl pink shades
  • Perky: Bright pink and light pink shades

  • Stunner: Bright pink and gold shades
  • Snap: Taupe and sand shades
  • Smooch: Copper and sand shades
  • Minx: Deep brown and gold shades
  • Intense: Deep berry and taupe shades

My Review:

I enjoyed the Covergirl blastflipstick lipsticks. I tried the shades Vixen and Minx. I thought that Minx would be my favorite since I like gold in my makeup, but it appeared to harsh and dark. Vixen was definitely my favorite.

I like that there are two shades in one stick, so it is customizeable. It is basically 3 lipsticks in 1! You can use either shade separately or use them together for a unique look. The colors blend well, and I usually layer the two colors together. 

The Covergirl blastflipstick goes on smoothly and keeps my lips moisturized all day. The color lasts for quite a while before re-application is needed.

The Giveaway:

One reader will receive Covergirl blastflipstick in the shade Stunner (a reddish/shimmerygold shade) as well as 3 coupons to try other shades for yourself. The giveaway is open to US residents only.

  • Leaving a blog comment below

Disclosure: I am a BzzAgent and was supplied with the opportunity to review this product by the BzzAgent Program. I received the Covergirl blastflipstick for free for review but was not compensated in any other way. All opinions of the product are that of my own.
