Emilee at Deals of Sweetness loves some of the great Trind Nail Tips that were shared with her and was excited to share her favorite – the Bare Manicure – with you! She will be sharing her review of Trind Nail Care in a couple of weeks, so be sure to check in at Deals of Sweetness to see what she thinks!

Trind Nail Tips: The Bare Manicure With Trind

Healthy nails are gorgeous nails. Use Trind Moisturizing Nail Balsam and Trind Nail Repair and your bare nails will be beautiful nails. This Dream Team gives you nails that don’t need to be covered up.

Use Trind Extra Mild Cuticle Remover and Trind Cuticle Repair Balsam to maintain your cuticles. Healthy cuticles mean strong, healthy nails.

Use the patented Trind Professional Glass Nail File to shape your nails. The laser grit seals as it files, to help prevent chipping and peeling. Keep your nails on the shorter side, and gently round the edges.

Your secret weapon for the Bare Manicure is Trind Nail Brightener. This is like a french manicure in a bottle! It makes your nails brighter, with the white parts whiter. Use a white nail pencil under the tips to further highlight the ends. That’s all you need to get that manicured look in a fraction of the time. It’s easy to maintain, too!

Invest the time to make your nails their healthiest and you won’t need a polish manicure.

Forever Christmas: Robert Tate Miller

_225_350_Book.1348.cover  If you had one chance to redo a moment in your life, would you do it? Better yet, could you do it?

In an instant, everything Andrew Farmer knew was forever changed. Totally immersed in his career, he’s fallen into a materialistic trap. Beth, his wife, has always been the grounded one with her heart in the right place. When tragedy strikes on Christmas Eve, Andy is desperate to get back all he’s lost.

At his most frantic moment, he has an encounter with ‘man’ named Lionel. Seeming to know everything about Andy, he makes an offer no one could refuse. Andrew will get 3 days, a mere 72 hours, to make things right. Christmas Eve is the deadline & Andy finds himself transported back in time for a do over. Knowing now what he didn’t know then, can he reconstruct his whole thought process, his very life, to make things whole again?

‘Forever Christmas’ follows the theme of many novels before it. Christmastime has often been the backdrop for folks getting a second chance. Thankfully, this isn’t simply another take on Dickens’ classic. It really is a creative spin. Every reader will easily relate to Andy & the turmoil he faces. Who hasn’t taken aspects of their life for granted?

Both Andy & his wife are great main characters. It is an easy, enjoyable read, perfect for this season. I give it 5 stars.

The Next World War: Grant R. Jeffrey

238631Signs of the End Times are everywhere. Blood Moons triggered a new wave of prophecy curiosity. In line with that comes Grant R. Jeffrey’s newest book, ‘The Next World War’.

Delving deep into the prophetic warnings in Scripture regarding the last days, Jeffrey starts with the root of the problem- hatred towards Israel. He spends a great deal of time discussing al-Qaeda’s terrorist maneuvers & terrorists’ actions. There is also great discussion about the New Temple that is to be built in Israel.

Utilizing the writings of great prophets such as Daniel & Ezekiel, Jeffrey expands things many Bible students have already read. For example, he explores the modern names for ancient lands that are anti-Semitic. Some may be obvious. Some may surprise you.

I found it enlightening & it definitely cleared up a few misconceptions that I had in regards to Ezekiel. If I have one complaint, it’s only that I felt he spent way too much time & effort defining & explaining al-Qaeda. Most of us were present for the 9/11 tragedy & perhaps the news media hammered it home a little too much. I just felt that the text was saturated with this network while more time could’ve been spent explaining additional Scripture passages that are misunderstood.

Regardless, it is very well written & will no doubt help those of us who become confused with prophetic names & symbols. It is worth a read & it’s a four star piece.
