Best Wigs For Summer, Summer, Summer Time

I’m the type of woman that loves to change up her hairstyle and color on a whim.  Depending on my outfits, in one week I can wear my natural hair straightened or curly, and then switch to a platinum blonde pixie cut.  I always laugh when I look at #throwback pictures of myself and see a different hairstyle in each photo.  Wearing wigs has given me the opportunity to grow my natural hair and try various hair colors without dyeing it.

In the Lone Star State, the summer heat is nothing to play around with and even though braids are a popular for that season, some still choose to rock wigs.  Personally, I like to switch between braided styles and curly half wigs in the hot season.  Below you will see recent videos of my favorite summer wigs that will keep you stylish and cool during the summer months.

Have you been afraid to commit to dyeing your hair?  With Sensationnel Chic Bob in Summer you can rock the purple and blue hair trend with no remorse.

Celtic Girl is one of my favorite half wigs and it looks great in every color.

 

Fab Fringe is a gorgeous human hair unit that looks great in every season as well. You can see that unit and other short looks by clicking this link.

No matter what your personal wig style is , be sure to choose something that will not make your temperature spike during the summer months.  Stay hydrated and keep cool while  rocking  your summer style.

The UNDENIABLE Power Of DADDY

My daddy is Santa Claus!

There is nothing like the presence of a strong, righteous, Christian father.  I mean it.  No matter where you are, you can always tell when a great father is present.  You can see it by his children’s behavior, attitude, and life choices.  You can also spot an impressive father by the way his spouse, peers, and family treat him.  I am always happy to see a wonderful father because I know that great Godly fathers rear superb children, who subsequently raise outstanding children, and so on.

Now of course, there is the opposite end of the fatherhood spectrum featuring the infamous, as seen on TV “deadbeat dad” that no one respects (respeks) or likes to claim.  Please believe if this type of father is super wack or jive in ANY WAY, someone will let him and the world know quick, fast, and in a hurry.  Most likely, during the weeks prior to and even on Father’s Day, one might see more social media posts about dads that fall into this category than posts for the spectacular fathers out there.  Life happens to all of us, but I’m always saddened by those who spend precious time venting anger over their own father or children’s father publicly.  I’m sure those moments would be better spent in prayer, asking God to heal that relationship, cover the children involved, and help everyone forgive and move forward.  Trust me; God is able to do all of that and more.

The ultimate example of fatherhood can be found in our Heavenly Father, The Most High God, by the way he loves, cares for, and provides for us.  From the beginning of time he set forth a plan for our homes, and when done right, PHENOMENAL things happen.  When a father takes his place in the child’s life he provides them with stability mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and even physically.  My father taught me how to fight and be confident, always told me I was beautiful, and made his presence known even though we lived in different cities.  Out of everything my father taught me, my favorite was that he always encouraged me to get married and stay married.  Because of his character, I was able to know what attributes to look for in a husband and ended up being chosen by an excellent man named Kevin.

I could go on and on and on about the importance of a father’s presence, his words, and his example but that’s what the video is for.  Check out my tribute to my father to hear my favorite memories with him, why I am proud to be his FAVORITE daughter, and some encouragement for single mothers.

I’d also like to say Happy Father’s Day to the awesome fathers I have in my life. My father, Urmit G., my husband, Kevin K., my father-in-love Vernon K., my bonus-father Calvin Thompson, my grandfather Robert D., and my grandfather-in-love Jasper C. Sr.  I LOVE YOU ALL!!  Love your father while you have time.  If you don’t have a relationship with him and he is still alive, ask God to help you forgive him and create one.  If your father died before you were able to have a relationship with him, God can give you peace and fill that void. As I already stated, he is able to do all of this and much more.

Kingdom Woman Giveaway

You ever read something and think “FINALLY, this author gets me completely,”?  That’s the exact feelings that I had when I hosted a book study for Kingdom Woman, co-authored by Tony Evans and Chrystal Evans Hurst.   Initially, I read the book to accompany my husband while he was part of a Kingdom Man book study without church.  After reading the book, I knew I had to invite other women to check it out so I created a study group with some women from our church.  The response was phenomenal, and I know the ladies that participated really enjoyed the book, the discussion, and the giveaway prizes.

My favorite part about this book was the different perspectives each author brought to the topic.  I loved the way Dr. Evans provided detailed bible knowledge and walked you through the scripture and testimonies of why God’s design for womanhood works.  I also loved how Mrs. Hurst was able to include the life application for women and soften the verbiage of her father with situations that we can relate too.  In my opinion, neither author outdid one another as their abilities were definitely portrayed through every word.

 

Now of course, I don’t want you to just take my word for it rather, read this book for yourself and let me know your thoughts.  You can purchase this book via Tony Evans website or other major retailers where books are sold.  For more of my thoughts on Kingdom Woman and a GIVEAWAY, check out my recent video.

MysteryScience.Com FREE TRIAL

This year we were given an opportunity to try out the newly created, Mystery Science website for FREE.  I quickly welcomed the chance to have this subject completely outlined for me especially because the experiments and instruction are included. Most of the experiments can be done with things you have around your home or that are inexpensive when purchased.

Mystery Science

CONS:  The website is super slooooooowwwwwww.  The videos freeze up each time we used the website and in most cases, we couldn’t get them to work again.  This would happen on every device we used, no matter how great of an internet connection we had. 

PROS:  The website had some creative lessons and my son truly enjoyed them.  He retained the provided information perfectly and looked forward to using the website daily.  Because of the ease of use, our 2nd grader was able to go through the lessons on his own with my supervision.

OVERALL:  Due to the daily delay with the website videos, we had to discontinue use of the website and switch to another curriculum.  We also tried to use the website as a Science supplement; however, the freezing didn’t stop as the website was updated and we preferred not to download the videos.  The website is EXCELLENT, but the frequent delay was the deciding factor to choose a different curriculum for next year.

For a demonstration for this website and how we used it, check out my recent video.

You still have an opportunity to use Mystery Science for FREE via their website.  Though it didn’t work for our homeschool, I’d suggest you try it out to see if your class or children can benefit from it.

**UPDATE 8/17/16**  I did speak to the support team of Mystery Science and they were able to offer some assistance and getting the videos to play better.  Their customer service is exquisite and support team is truly awesome.  We have already decided on a different Science for next year but look forward to trying this company’s program in the future.  For details on the conversation, results, and information about the improved video player check out the updated video below.  As of August 2016, the FREE YEAR SUBSCRIPTION is still available.


Happy homeschooling!

 

Make this week magnificent,
