Tyler Perry's Book "Higher Is Waiting" Giveaway!

This blog has affiliate links and sponsored articles. Check out my disclosure policy for more details. 

BOOK DESCRIPTION:  

An intimate book of inspiration by one of the great cultural icons of our time


Higher Is Waiting is a spiritual guidebook, a collection of teachings culled from the experiences of a lifetime, meant to inspire readers to climb higher in their own lives and pull themselves up to a better, more fulfilling place. In this intimate book, Tyler Perry writes of how his faith has sustained him in hard times, centered him in good times, and enriched his life.


Beginning with his earliest memories of growing up a shy boy in New Orleans, Perry recalls the moments of grace and beauty in a childhood marked by brutality, deprivation, and fear. With tenderness he sketches portraits of the people who sustained him and taught him indelible lessons about integrity, trust in God, and the power of forgiveness: his aunt Mae, who cared for her grandfather, who was born a slave, and sewed quilts that told a story of generations; Mr. Butler, a blind man of remarkable dignity and elegance, who sold penny candies on a street corner; and his beloved mother, Maxine, who endured abuse, financial hardship, and the daily injustices of growing up in the Jim Crow South yet whose fierce love for her son burned bright and never dimmed. Perry writes of how he nurtured his dreams and discovered solace in nature, and of his resolute determination to reach ever higher.


Perry vividly and movingly describes his growing awareness of God’s presence in his life, how he learned to tune in to His voice, to persevere through hard times, and to choose faith over fear. Here he is: the devoted son, the loving father, the steadfast friend, the naturalist, the philanthropist, the creative spirit—a man whose life lessons and insights into scripture are a gift offered with generosity, humility, and love.


Tyler Perry's new book "Higher Is Waiting" was released yesterday November 14! 

He has some great movies and even started out doing plays. He's got a way of getting a real and true point across with humor and wit. In this book, I love how he opens up and speaks about experiences in his own childhood. There's truth and dignity in this read & I can say it's truly inspiring. Tyler Perry is a man with a great heart!

Keep That Christmas Tree Fresh!

This blog has affiliate links and sponsored articles. Check out my disclosure policy for more details. 

It's that Season again, where people will decorate their homes for Christmas and put up a tree. There is  a lot of care that comes with that tree and sometimes it can be overwhelming and, honestly, a pain. You have to climb over presents under the tree to water it, hope that you don't break any of the ornaments, make sure not to spill the water and don't forget to be careful you don't scratch up your hand on any of those branches.

This is where the Evergreen Elf comes in!

Meet the Evergreen Elf™

This elf's monitoring will help you keep that tree freshly watered and protect your family from a tree fire by avoiding and of those dry needles! The tree stays freshly watered because of this elf monitoring the water levels so that you can do other things with your time.

He has a visual alert and an audio that works on batteries.




How cute?! Not to mention, as a firefighters wife I am constantly made aware of the dangers of a dry tree! He has seen too many fires at the Holidays, so this is such a great idea.

You can purchase this adorable little elf online here or you can click here to find a location near you!
