FlyByPromotions: Every Mile Mattered by Nichole Nordeman, CD Review and Giveaway

About the CD: 

Nichole Nordeman is set to release her fifth full length studio record Every Mile Mattered. Following up her 2015 EP, The Unmaking, which featured the viral hit “Slow Down,” Every Mile Mattered is a collection of songs taking a reflective look at her life’s path to becoming the woman and Christ-follower she is today. From the leading single “Every Mile Mattered,” to a vulnerable introspective track titled “Dear Me,” this album is all about the journey, the ups and downs of life, and not looking back with regret, but with thankfulness that God was there at every turn. 

“In the hands of Jesus, every one of those miles brought me to right now. Nothing wasted. Every mile mattered.” 

The CD has 11 new Songs on it which include: 

1. Every Mile Mattered
2. You're Here
3. Dear Me
4. No Longer
5. Lean
6. Hush, Hush
7. Listen To Your Life
8. Beautiful Day
9. Sound Of Surviving
10. Anywhere We Are
11. Slow Down

About Nichole Nordeman: 

Nichole Nordeman was raised in Colorado Springs, Colorado, where she played the piano in church. She got her start when she entered a Gospel Music Association (GMA) contest in Los Angeles, California and was noticed by a music producer. Nichole Nordeman is one of Christian music's most respected singer/songwriters, with four No. 1 songs and seven Top 5 radio singles, including hits such as “Holy,” “Legacy” and “Brave.” Her album Brave debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard Christian & Gospel Album Chart. Nichole Nordeman has twice been named GMA’s Female Vocalist of the Year and is also a noted lyricist who has won 9 Dove Awards.

My Thoughts and Review: 

I have been a fan of Nichole Nordeman for many years and was truly excited to have the opportunity to Listen and Review her brand new CD. 

The new CD, Every Mile Mattered, is just AMAZING. The title song really got me sentimental. The song, Every Mile Mattered, is about remembering the past, but also knowing that you cannot change the Past, although EVERYTHING about the Past mattered. I find myself dwelling on the past and wishing I could change things, but Every Mile Mattered really tugged at my heart and made me realize that the "history" was made by God and it all mattered. 

Every Mile Mattered Video: 

Nichole also included her hit song "Slow Down" on this CD also, first released on her previous CD "Unmasking". "Slow Down" really tugs at this mama heart. My boys are growing up (ages 15, 14 and almost 13) and in a few short years will be ready to "leave the nest". Sometimes I feel that time is moving too fast and I have so much more to accomplish as a Mom before that happens. I want them to "Slow Down", but I also realize all the memories we have created and how much I have accomplished as a Mom. 

Slow Down Video: 

I really enjoyed the ENTIRE CD and if you are a fan of Contemporary Christian Music and/or Nichole Nordeman, this is a MUST BUY CD! I give the CD 5 out of 5! 

Where to Buy the CD: 


Nichole Nordeman also has a book "SLOW DOWN" coming out in August. You can Pre-Order the book here: Slow Down Book

Nichole Nordeman new CD is very inspiring and thought provoking. A MUST BUY! Actually, I have one copy to giveaway to a reader. Check out the Giveaway Below:

FlyBy Promotions Review: Once Upon a Time Storybook Bible and NIRV Bible

About the Once Upon a Time Storybook Bible: 

The Bible is not a fairy tale, but every great story happened “once upon a time.” The Once Upon a Time Storybook Bible highlights powerful and inspiring stories from the Bible, beautifully illustrated with fantastical artwork by Omar Aranda. Each captivating story is told in a way that will get children excited about reading the tales of real heroes of the Bible.

About the Once Upon A time Bible:

The Bible is not a fairy tale, but every great story happened once upon a time. The NIrV Once Upon a Time Holy Bible contains a presentation page and also highlights six great stories from the Bible on 24 full-color inserts. Each story is told on four pages in full-color, illustrated splendor. Also contains the complete New International Reader's Version (NIrV) of the Bible.

Stories include:

God Makes Man and Woman
Isaac and Rebekah
Ruth Finds Happiness
Queen Esther
Mary and Joseph and an Angel
He Lives!
We all have our own tale to live and what better place to look for help and encouragement than the greatest story of all.

My Thoughts and Review: 
Kids nowadays are very fascinated with "Everything Disney". Christian Parents want their kids to enjoy beautiful animation and characters, but also want a Biblical background for their kids. ZonderKidz, a division of Zondervan Books, recognized this and introduces a StoryBook Bible and an NIRV Bible for kids.

I have really enjoyed reading through both books. The Storybook Bible is a great "Bedtime Read" or Family Devotional time read. The Stories are short, the pictures are vibrant and colorful. A feature I really like is at the end of each story is a "Happily Ever After" that gives a scripture and how the story can be applied to life in a Biblical and Happy Manner. The Storybook Bible is AMAZING!

The NIRV Bible is in an "easy to read" format for children to understand. The bible has some GREAT vibrant illustration pages introducing some of the books of the Bible. The Dictionary included in the back of the Bible is a wonderful edition to this bible and is a very easy to use format.

ZonderKidz really outdid themselves with these wonderful resources for kids and families! I think both books would make a wonderful Easter Gift for your young children or an any day gift! The Bible comes to life not as a fairy tale, but as God's Word using beautiful Illustrations that kids love!
Where to Buy: 
The Once Upon a Time Bible is available wherever Books are sold.
The Once Upon a Time StoryBook Bible is available at Sam's Club and wherever Books are Sold.

I have been getting interested in Bible Journaling over the past 6 months or so. I have been saving info that I find online and getting info to get started. The church I attend is currently running a weekly workshop, but I am unable to attend due to having other committments during the time it happens. I received this Bible Journaling Kit and have been really excited to get started. I really like the Kit as it comes with everything to get started Bible Journaling. The Kit is very vibrant and colorful, which will make Bible Journaling Pages colorful also. The pouch fits everything very neatly and the carrying handle is awesome. I also like the afford-ability of the Bible Journaling Kit. I had priced products separately and it seemed quite expensive to get started, but the Bible Journaling Kit is a great starter kit that won't break the bank.

Fly By Promotions Book Review: The Blessings of Unity God's Best for our Marriages by Richard T. Case

About the Book:

The Blessings of Unity offers insight and ideas for creating godly unity in our marriages centered around two key concepts:
1) Abiding in the Vine and walking in the Spirit, and
2) Learning and applying the concept of unity.
Unity is achieved when a man and woman strive for agreement with God by processing His Will on every decision and in every issue. Through Biblically-centered discussions of discord, division, unity, discipleship, and prayer, and through exploring Biblical examples of unity, Richard Case offers husbands and wives practical and spiritual advice for working together in unity in the Spirit so that they can more perfectly present themselves to God for his divine approval.

About the Author:

Before his current role in developing retreats and serving this ministry, All for Jesus, Richard Case worked for many years with Fortune 500 companies in management and consulting roles. He holds a BS in Management and Finance from Bradley University, an MBA from the University of Southern California, and a seminary Masters degree from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. Richard has been a featured speaker at conferences and seminars; he has hosted a radio show and is a published author. Richard and his wife, Linda, answered the call from the Lord to Abide in Him through the Spirit. Together, Richard and Linda have started up several churches that remain strong today, and have served as interim pastors of troubled churches, bringing reconciliation and new vision to these situations. Richard and Linda began conducting marriage retreats in 2001. Richard and Linda currently live in Castle Rock, CO.

My Thoughts and Review: 

The Blessings of Unity is a short read, but a POWERFUL book. I was reading through the book and my eyes tearing up at the advice and truth in the book. I think my favorite chapter was Chapter 2: Division and Discord. A marriage that has constant Division and Discord will never have Unity. Unity is so important in a marriage and something many vow to have when saying Wedding Vows, but unfortunately 50-60% of Christian Marriages end in Divorce due to Discord. I know my marriage has seen and still sees much Division and Discord, as Unity takes the part of both to make it happen. I LOVE the key scripture that is included in each chapter, as it is very encouraging and insightful. Truly, so much insight and great info packed into a small book! GREAT book!

I highly recommend this book for Engaged, Newly Married and all those marriages where Unity isn't present in the marriage. I know this book has richly blessed me and it would be an AMAZING book for marriages!

FlyBy Promotions: The Biggest Story Animated Short Film DVD and Audio Book Review

About the Animated Short Film and Audio Book:

The Animated Short Film: Featuring beautifully animated illustrations adapted from the book, The Biggest Story: The Animated Short Film will captivate children and parents alike as they see how all the classic stories in the Bible connect to Scripture’s overarching message about God’s glorious plan to redeem his rebellious people.

The Audio Book: This audio book of The Biggest Story—written and narrated also by the best-selling author Kevin DeYoung—leads kids and parents alike on an exciting journey through the Bible, connecting the dots from the garden of Eden to Christ's death on the cross to the new heaven and new earth.

About the Author:

Kevin DeYoung (MDiv, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary) is senior pastor at University Reformed Church in East Lansing, Michigan. He blogs at the Gospel Coalition and has authored or coauthored numerous well-known books such as Just Do Something, The Hole in Our Holiness, Taking God At His Word, and What Does the Bible Really Teach about Homosexuality?, as well as the award-winning books Why We’re Not Emergent, Why We Love the Church (with Ted Kluck), and Crazy Busy. Kevin and his wife, Trisha, have seven children.

My Review and Thoughts: 

Our family has used The Big Story Book a few years ago when our Church promoted it and gave insight on how to incorparate it into our family Devotional time. I was quite excited to know that the DVD and Audio Book are now available. My boys are now older, but I am very lucky that they enjoy watching DVD's with me. My boys and I sat to watch the DVD and we enjoyed it very much. The animation really kept my boys enthralled and they quite interestingly the DVD gave them a different take on the Garden of Eden. The video would be especially great for little ones because each of the 10 chapters of the Bible are covered in 2-3 minutes on this Animated Film. The Audio CD is also a wonderful tool to use for family Devotional times. We also used it in the car for Car time chat and learning. My middle son was excited about the CD as he is loves Audio Books due to a Vision Issue! The Biggest Story on DVD and Audio CD get HIGH FIVES from our family!
