Child training bible review and giveaway

I am lucky enough to get the chance to review and GIVEAWAY a Child Training Bible (CTB)!  It all started when a friend of mine "liked" the Child training bible on Facebook... I instantly was hooked! The Child Training Bible covers more than 20 topics including: disobedience, fear, fighting, defiance, lying and impatience. Each topic has eight or more Scripture references, some heart seeking questions (“Are you showing patience in this situation?”), some application questions and a simple prayer for help with this problem! I thought "that would be so great for my kids" I feel like it takes some of the disciplining off of me, and instead focuses them to the word! I explained kinda how it works to my 7 year old and she was very interested.

I must give my children a physical experience with the Holy Word of God.
They must see the Bible. Open the Bible. Become familiar with the text of the Bible.
Whenever there is a problem, I want to train my children to immediately run to the Lord, seek His Words, and allow His truth to saturate the situation.
Going to the Scripture chart on the fridge is…good. Using Scripture notecards in my pocket during the day is…good. Bible memorization is also very good.
Opening the very Word of God is…the best!
-Mindy Dunn, CTB Website

Here's what you need:

  • CTB chart with CTB Key , 3 Scripture Tabbing Charts (double-sided), Set of Instructions
  • Post it tabs you can purchase here or at any office supply store
  • highlighters you can purchase here, I used colored pencils
  • Bible you can purchase here, or check out yourlocal christian store or book store.

It didn't take long to set up, I just did a couple tabs at a time to break it up.


We LOVE it!!! I love that we can easily take the situation and turn the the scripure we need, and I love that my kids are learning from the bible instead of 'mommy said not too' now its because 'the bible said so!

Now to the best part! Would you like a CTB for your family? Thanks to Mindy at ChildTrainingBible.com we are giving away a Child Training Bible Chart Set. Follow the rafflecopter instructions for a chance to win one of these kits!

Cinnamon Roll Cake

I made this AMAZING cake for Easter and it was a HUGE hit with the family!  Thanks too Chef in training and Grin and bake it

Here's how I did it:

  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 4 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1 1/2 cups Milk
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla
  • 1/2 cup ( 1 stick) Butter, melted

  • 1 cup Brown Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Flour
  • 1 Tablespoon Cinnamon
  • 2 cups Powdered Sugar
  • 5 Tablespoons Milk
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9×13 glass baking pan with cooking spray. Set aside.

In an electric or stand mixer add the flour, salt, sugar, baking powder, milk, eggs, and vanilla. Once combined well , slowly stir in the melted butter. Pour into the prepared 9×13 baking pan.

For topping, In a large bowl mix the 2 sticks of butter, brown sugar, flour and cinnamon together until well combined and creamy. Drop evenly over the batter by the tablespoonfuls and use a knife to marble/swirl through the cake.

Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes or when a toothpick inserted near the center comes out nearly clean.
