Steeped Tea with Jacqueline Perr

Good morning everyone! I just wanted to review a company that I buy my tea from. You see, I met Jacqueline Perr online in the last year and she was hosting a business online called Steeped Tea. Being a tea lover, I decided to accept her invite to check out an online party she was having. I had always heard about many benefits to different kinds of teas and that they could help with health issues such as inflammation, upset stomach, coughing and so much more. 

As I listened and learned about the different kinds of tea. I really zoned in on the benefits of Peppermint Tea. I find it to be soothing if you have an upset stomach but there is so many more benefits that just that one. Check out this image for yourselves and read how Peppermint can help all kinds of aliments. 

I want to share with you Jacqueline Perr's story and how she got started selling tea. Jacqueline is down to earth, helpful and she will do her best to help you decide which tea is best for you.

A Chance At Forever by Melissa Jagears

I recieved this book for free in exchange for my honest review as I am on Melissa Jagears' influencer team. This however, does not impact my rating. 

From the back of the book:

In early 1900s Kansas, Mercy McClain, determined to protect Teaville's children from the bullying she experienced as a child, finds fulfillment working at the local orphanage and serving on the school board. When Aaron Firebrook, the classmate who bothered her more than any other, petitions the board for a teaching position, she's dead set against him getting the job.

Aaron knows he deserves every bit of Mercy's mistrust, but he's returned to his hometown a changed man and is seeking to earn forgiveness of those he wronged. He doesn't expect Mercy to like him, but surely he can prove he now has the best interests of the children at heart.

Will resentment and old wounds hold them back, or can Mercy and Aaron put the past behind them in time to face the unexpected threats to everything they…

On My Own (February 16, 2018)

Hey friends! 

I know its been a while since I have done an update. Mom has been in South Africa a little over a month now. So many people have asked me if I miss my parents or not. I have to say that I miss them in a way of seeing them around but I also know that its time to grow up and to become my own person. I will say that its different and weird not having them around but knowing that they are out having adventures of their own. I will always love them and miss their friendship. When they come home, it will be interesting to see the interactions and just see how much I am growing up. With this being said, I am excited to hear their stories and adventures. 
Things I have learned:
-To depend on others for help
-To become my own friend
-To have time to work on my own hobbies (writing, drawing, jewelry making)
-To pay bills and manage a household 
-To really know everything is going to be fine and that I am capable of taking care of me, my sister and a house which I had always questioned in…

January 19, 2018 (Mom and Dad are in South Africa)

Hey everyone! 

The traveling gypsy here. I just wanted to give everyone an update on my life as a whole. There will be many changes to come. My sister and I have decided to really concentrate on writing our books, really taking charge of our health and learning alot about growing up. As many of you know, my parents are now working in Capetown, South Africa. This will be a new adventure for all of us. 

My sister and I have decided we are staying back to take care of the house and our 6 animals. We have two dogs and four cats that will keep us crazy.....Uh hum...I mean Sane! Lol. Other than taking one day at a time, we are learning more about who we are. We are learning to lean on God through this whole process and most of all that we can take care of a house. 

Most of all:

I want my parents to enjoy themselves living abroad. I want them to be able to travel and see the world together. To do all the things they didn't get to do when they were raising me and my sister. We will get to see…

Guardian of Her Heart by Rachel Skatvold

I recieved this e-book in exchange for my honest review. I love to help Authors out and get their word out there since I am a part time author myself. Its hard to sometimes only rely on word of mouth. 

From the back of the book: 

Charlotte Lewis has the life she always dreamed of in London.

Her low profile career and private flat allow her to hide in plain sight, away from the paparazzi obsessed with her famous Hollywood family. Unlucky in love, she is content to live alone, until a tragic accident leaves her the guardian of her eight-year-old niece, Emma and co-owner of Morgan Stables in Wyoming. With no experience in raising children or caring for horses, Charlotte knows one thing. She desperately needs help.

After losing his wife to cancer, Trevor Morgan’s faith is shattered. Living in solitude and training horses for his cousin, Tom, allows him to hide his grief. However, inheriting half of Morgan Stables gives Trevor’s life new purpose. He longs to preserve his family’s legacy and wa…

Holding The Fort by Regina Jennings

I recieved this book free from Regina Jennings because I am on her street team. However, this DOES NOT influence my rating or review in any way. 

From the back of the book:

Louisa Bell never wanted to be a dance-hall singer, but dire circumstances force her hand. With a little help from her brother in the cavalry, she's able to make ends meet, but lately he's run afoul of his commanding officer, so she undertakes a visit to straighten him out. 

Major Daniel Adams has his hands full at Fort Reno. He can barely control his rowdy troops, much less his two adolescent daughters. If Daniel doesn't find someone respectable to guide his children, his mother-in-law insists she'll take them.

When Louisa arrives with some reading materials, she's mistaken for the governess who never appeared. Major Adams is skeptical. She bears little resemblance to his idea of a governess--they're not supposed to be so blamed pretty--but he's left without recourse. His mother-in-law must…

Death at Thorburn Hall by Julianna Deering

I recieved this book for free from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for my honest review because I am part of their blogging team.

From the back of the book:

Investigating a suspicious accident leads Drew on a path that points to international intrigue and ever-growing danger
Drew Farthering arrives in idyllic Scotland for the 1935 British Open at Muirfield, hoping for a relaxing holiday with his wife, Madeline, and friend Nick. But death meets him once again when Lord Rainsby, their host at Thorburn Hall, is killed in a suspicious riding accident--only days after confiding in Drew his fears that his business partner was embezzling funds.

Thorburn Hall is filled with guests, and as Drew continues to dig, he realizes that each appears to have dark motives for wanting Rainsby out of the way. Together with Madeline and Nick, he must sort through shady business dealings, international intrigue, and family tensions to find a killer who always seems to be one step ahead.
