Not only is Ellie Claire offering three of the most beautiful Devotionals for 2019, for each devotion, you will find one page for the devotions, the page beside it has plenty of journaling room for you to write your thoughts on each of the 365 devotions. See my reviews below for all three of them. And check them out for that perfect person on your Christmas list this year! 

THE FIRST DEVOTIONAL-JOURNAL IS:

Peace Begins With Me

AF8D3789-A625-4BB9-9F36-0E17C343C295

MY THOUGHTS ON “Peace Begins With Me”

First of all, it’s hard for me to pick a favorite. I like all three of them. This one, ‘Peace Begins With Me’ is my favorite as far as color. I love this light teal color. And the simple marble design on the outside is beautiful, as well as the white places inside with the teal color border. I would have snatched this one from a bookstore shelve first thing. 

It will be calming for me just to see this color every morning when I do my devotions. I also love the writing space. There’s plenty of room to take notes, write favorite verses, list people you want to pray for, praises, or just special thoughts or maybe a song. I’m sure I will find many things to write in these spaces throughout the year! The pages are a thick quality that you can use any pen, and it won’t bleed through. Though I didn’t try a marker. I won’t be using a marker in mine. And I already have a teal pen to use! Gotta match things up. 

The very first devotion, January 1, is “The Promise if Peace.” Talking about God’s Promise of Peace and encouraging me to pray for that peace in my everyday life. And one thing I noticed too while reading, the dates are only the month and day, not the year so these can be used any year, over and over. As I looked at many of the devotions, they were all something I can’t wait to read for that certain day! As I’ve already said, this Devotional Journal will be mine. I’m so excited about using this for 2019.

THE SECOND DEVOTIONAL-Journal IS:

Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus

E4C2CBF6-BBEF-4197-8911-24190CC22A69

 

MY THOUGHTS ON “Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus”

If you love flowers, this 365 day Devotional Journal will be for you! I love it myself. Love the song, “Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus,” and I think about it every time I see this devotional journal. The inside pages have flowers in the top corners and a beautiful border to match along the bottom. 

And the first devotion in this one is Jan 1, and is called “All About Him!” What beautiful and better way to start off 2019, talking about it’s all about Jesus! Because that is what life is all about. This Devotional & Journal also has about a half page on each day to write notes, thoughts, verses, songs, prayer request, or just about anything you want to. And these pages are think and high quality so you can safely write on them and not worry about the ink bleeding through. 

I haven’t decided what I will do with this one. I want to keep it, but her I feel I need to give it away so someone else can be blessed by using it. Either way, it will be used and loved! 

32064D05-3CF4-42B7-9543-A83B7EC279CE

THE THIRD DEVOTIONAL-Journal IS:

The Earth is the Lords and Everything In It

87B1EF01-7C76-4DC7-8A9C-9C069DC69F78

MY THOUGHTS ON 

“The Earth is the Lords and Everything In It”

Another beautiful Devotional and Journal that will bless someone this year. If you are a peacock kind of person, you will dearly love this one! The outside cover is absolutely stunning with the beautiful peacocks, two of them, sitting on a branch with pink flowers! The inside it perhaps the most beautiful if the three, with flowers on a top and bottom corner and a peacock adorns the other bottom corner. There’s a space for To, From and Date on the inside front cover. 

This Devotional Journal will go to a sister, or friend. Anyone will love this gift of something this special and beautiful. With plenty of writing space, it gives room for anything you feel you need to write during your devotion time. The pages are high quality paper, very nice. I would buy me a pen that matches! Draw pictures or doodle or do whatever you like with it. 

And for all three of these Devotional Journal’s, Ellie Claire has outdone themselves with three of the most stunning works I’ve seen from them. It’s seems as though each new Ellie Claire is so much better, more beautiful and higher quality than the next. You can’t go wrong with the company. Whether it be for yourself, or a gift, check them out!

This is the third journal I have reviewed for Ellie Claire and I just can’t pick one that I love the most. This one teaches illuminating lettering. I’ve seen this type of lettering but never know what it is called and the story behind it. These Illuminated letters are inspired by the Museum of the Bible’s collections. When using Illuminating letters, they are usually used to start a paragraph or page. These letters are large in comparison with the rest of your letters. They are very beautifully drawn and colored with vibrant colors. This journal shows how to make those letters in a simple way that even I may can draw them. I don’t know how I will do, I don’t show my work, but they are turning out pretty good. And what fun! With all of the coloring going on today, this journal is a perfect addition to your stash! And you can write your feelings for the day right along with the beautiful letters.

In addition to the beautiful fun letters, this journal is very well made. The outside is a very high quality hardcover, and I love that it’s made to stay flat so you can draw, color and write. The inside pages are also of high quality paper and the colors will not bleed to the following page.

Hillsong Kids DVD Can You Believe It? Songs of Truth plus Giveaway

Hillsong Kids! Can You Believe It DVD!

AND GIVEAWAY

901D4D16-0BC8-48E3-AEF5-017AF989CF91.jpeg

Hillsong Kids cd, Can You Believe It?  

Buy Link:  http://hllsng.co/canyoubelieveit?IQid=blog

Talking Points

“Can You Believe It!? – Songs of Truth” is both a question and a challenge… a statement of gratitude to a loving God and an invitation to explore the very foundations of faith. Classic songs like “My Best Friend”, “Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)” and “What A Beautiful Name” join brand new declarations of faith such as “As The World Shakes” & “Heaven Is Our Home”. We pray that this collection of fun and vibrant songs, help children around the world to declare biblical truths about God’s love and grace for them.

 

Bio

Hillsong believes that teaching children to love God and others takes place in both the home and in the church. For this reason they seek to partner with parents (the greatest teachers of all!) and with church pastors and leaders, equipping them with great resources. Through fun experiences, meaningful music and ministry that encourages kids to participate, Hillsong Kids presents Jesus Christ and His Church in a relevant way, creating moments which children will never forget.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS DVD

Again, Hillsong does what it does best, creates a DVD geared especially for kids around 8-15 years of age. I love that “Can You Believe It” it for this age group because so often it seems this age doesn’t get the attention they should. This DVD is wonderful. Funny Man Dan was a focus on the video that made sure the kids would enjoy everything about the video. The songs were beautiful, some I knew well, some I didn’t know but enjoyed listening to, as well as listening to the interviews of those singing the songs.

The main focus of this DVD is to teach kids about Jesus, using unique ways to teach, such as games and the songs. And everything is upbeat, to capture the kids attention! And even adults can enjoy this DVD with your child, and certainly the songs can be enjoyed by everyone.

I also went to the Hillsong website and they have a wealth of information about this new DVD, so I highly recommend that you check out the information. And this would make an excellent Christmas gift! I have a 9 year old niece that will be enjoying “Can You Believe It” when she comes to visit!

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS CD

I have loved Matt Redman music every since he wrote 10,000 Reasons. His worship songs bring healing and peace to your heart and soul.  Featured in the Glory Song CD are 13 worship songs. I really enjoyed listening to this CD a number of times and there is not a bad song on this CD. I do have a few favorites though.

The words to Gracefully Broken encourages Christians to surrender everything we have into Our God’s hands. The last words of the song are so powerful. ‘Your power is at work in me, I’m broken gracefully, I’m strong when I am weak, I will be free.

I few others are ‘Still I will Sing’, whether it is a joy or a sacrifice, still I will Sing.  And ‘Greatest Hallelujah’, we bring our Hallelujah’s for you reign for everymore. And every song on this CD has words that will speak to your heart. And not only the words but the beautiful music. I look forward to hearing these songs on our local Christian radio station’s as well as singing them in our worship time. This is a CD I highly recommend, and if you are a worship leader, you will definitely want this one!

I received a complimentary copy of this CD from FlyBy Promotions. The opinions in this review are mine only!
