The Illuminator Series Article #4: What Does Good Character Look Like?

I want to share some thoughts with you today on Character.




What does a person of good character look like? They have integrity, honesty, kindness, generosity, and moral courage.

Sometimes, people who LACK character will tell you things that are truthful because they actually want to hurt you! A person of good character may not always say the things you want to hear, either. But they will be honest and tell you the truth in LOVE because they actually care about you. Really listen to what people are saying to you and the motives behind it.

Think about the people in your life. Think about the people you surround yourself with - friends, acquaintances, leadership. Think about how, overall, they care for you - or don't.

Pray for them. Pray that they would continue (or start) down the road of good character.

Pray for yourself. Pray that your insecurities and sensitivities from the past would get out of the way and enable you to see who has true character and who does not. Listen to those with good character and stick close to them - you will be surprised at how much you learn! It will be evident to you that a person of good character wants you to succeed in life and your personal development.

Most of all, you will find out Who people of good character follow. Who do they strive to be like? Who do they try to imitate? Take a look at Who THAT person is and you will find out how to recognize (and have) good character, too.

“And you should imitate me, just as I imitate Christ.” 1 Corinthians 11:1

“A disciple is not above his teacher, but everyone when he is fully trained will be like his teacher.” Luke 6:40

“…Jesus called them together and said, “You know that the rulers in this world lord it over their people, and officials flaunt their authority over those under them. But among you it will be different. Whoever wants to be a leader among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first among you must become your slave. For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.” Matthew 20:25-28

“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” 2 Corinthians 5:17

French for Kids: On Va Jouer (Let's Play)(DVD) Review #OnVaJouer




French DVD for Kids

On va chanter! (Let's sing!) On va danser! (Let's dance!) On va jouer! (Let's play!) This interactive French immersion program is non-stop language-learning fun. With the help of Fritzi the mouse and a playful group of peers, Marie introduces vocabulary related to different parts of the body. And what better way to get those body parts moving than with delightful sing-along, dance-along songs, including"Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes" and familiar French folksongs with exciting new twists. From le chapeau (the hat) to la chaussure (the shoe), kids will love trying on their new French vocabulary for clothes in playful, interactive skits. On Va Jouer entertainingly combines colorful illustrated backgrounds, live- action, and 2-D and 3-D animation. Friendly characters and abundant humor make learning a new language as much fun as play time. Vous êtes prêts? (Are you ready?) On va jouer!


This DVD includes an easy-to-use translation guide for parents and teachers who are first time learners of French, as well as French subtitles. Designed for children ages 1-7, On Va Jouer is fun for all ages!

My Review

My four year old is very advanced in his reading, so when we turned the sub titles on this DVD became a lot easier for him to follow along. This DVD is entirely in french, but the host is very expressive so it works for all ages. We love the songs and there is an insert in the DVD case that includes the translations for words used. Overall, a really great french starter tool that really engages our child.

Argan + Coconut + Jojoba Oil Hair Treatment + Elixir #review #arganoilhairtreatment



Product Description

Our Argan Oil Hair Treatment formula is very unique and unlike others in the market.

It can be used as a leave in conditioner or as a heat and damage protectant. There are no chemicals in this formula. It's made from 100% plant oils. Besides argan oil, this unique hair treatment formula is compromised of Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, Jojoba Oil, Olive Oil and Grapeseed Oil to name a few.

It's perfect for restoring that shine & luster that's lost over time. This needs to be part of your daily / weekly hair regiment! You DO NOT want to miss out on this.

My Review

A drop of this oil goes a long way to making hair soft and shiny. Used as a deep conditioner, or to help with split ends and fly aways, this product does the trick. If you have an oily scalp I would recommend not using more than a drop. This is a great product, came in a timely manner and received no damage during transit!

My Review

This is a very big bottle for the price. This seems like a good product, contrary to some of the negative reviews on here. Maybe there was a bad batch in the warehouse, but mine did NOT smell bad and it was golden in color as it should be (this lot was harvested in April 2014). That being said, I am used to argan oil having a slightly nutty smell which this did not have (I prefer the scent). The oil also comes out of the dropper much too fast, so be careful. It absorbed fully, although I do recommend using it at night for best results.

SafeHands Alcohol-Free Hand Sanitizer Line for Children & Adults #safeHands #review #kids


I received this product as part of an advertorial, but all opinions are 100% my own.


Product Description

After years of in-depth scientific research and clinical testing, Dr. Jay Reubens, the inventor of the first touch-free dispenser, created safeHands®—the world’s first doctor-invented alcohol-free line of hand sanitizers. Both the safeHands® Squirts and safeHands® Classic Line, their respective adult and children line, were created in an effort to create a hand sanitizer that is non-toxic, soothing and works with the skin’s natural oils to increase in germ killing with each consecutive use.safeHands ditched the culprit behind traditional hand sanitizer’s undesirable side effects – alcohol – and replaced it entirely with Benzalkonium Chloride (BAC), the same ingredient in mouthwash and eye drops, to create a hand sanitizer that is tough on germs and safe for skin.

This product is the perfect travel accessory, a safe backpack companion for kids and a great way to remain preventative of the cold and flu during the summer and back-to-school.months.



Aside from their website, safeHands recently debuted on Walgreens and Safeway shelves nationwide this year and can also be found at Navarro Pharmacies in Miami,FL.

Please follow and like safeHands on:
Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/getsafehands
Twitter: https://twitter.com/getsafeHands
Instagram: http://instagram.com/safehandsgram#

My Review

According to the CDC, washing your hands with soap and then using a hand sanitizer is the best prevention for the common cold, flu, and other diseases that can be spread from hand-to-hand contact. As mommy to an active four year old, that is important to me! But so is the safety of my child. Accidental ingestion of alcohol-based hand sanitizers can be detrimental - even deadly - to a small child. I never thought my son might ingest it, but it happens and I can't run that risk!



I absolutely LOVE safeHands! It was invented by a doctor and is ALCOHOL-FREE. Non-toxic, soothing, and it kills germs! Zachary loves the fruity smell of the Squirts line and I love that I can pop the purse sized pumps in my purse for on-the-go. They pump out like foam, which is wonderful, and my son loves to use it.

I can't tell you how incredibly happy I am that I was asked to review for this company. I will DEFINITELY be recommending this line to my Mommy friends and family!

Skin Secret Derma Roller #skincare and #beauty #review #skinsecret




Product Description

STIMULATES COLLAGEN PRODUCTION Collagens have great tensile strength, and provide these body structures with the ability to withstand forces that stretch them. Collagens consist of three polypeptide chains arranged in a triple helix, and are bundled together in fibers. This can be used with collagen creams, collagen lotions, collagen supplements to amplify the collagen production and improve skin quality

HELPS ELIMINATE SCARS INLUDING ACNE SCARS scars will become less vissible over time, including acne scars. This is a good alternative to invasive laser surgery. This product works with othe acne treatments by allowing product to penetrate skin

REDUCES APPEARANCE OF FINE LINES AND WRINKLES this will help eliminate bags under the eye, skin discoloarion, large pores. The skin will appear firmer. Works well with skin lotions, skin creams and skin serums like ascorbic acid vitamin e hyalurunic acid.

REDUCES CELLULITE AND STRETCH MARKS. Reduces the appearance of stretch marks and cellulite. This is without liposouction or other invasive procedures.



My Review

I had been wanting to try a derma roller for some time, but was working up the courage to do it. Apparently, Derma rollers work by producing thousands of microscopic needle holes in the dermis, which prompts the skin to produce new collagen/elastin and generate new cells. They also make it easier for serum absorption- such as the application of a anti-aging cream. It actually makes sense to me.

I did not need a numbing cream with this derma roller and am starting to see good results on old scars! IT allows my vitamin c serum to absorb quickly.

A Guardian of Shadows (The Revenant Wyrd Saga #4) 

The thrilling sequel to The Well of Wyrding. In the enchanted lands of the Great Realms, Angelica, Jovian, and Joya are searching for their kidnapped sister, Amber. Their quest has led them through many dangers and many excitements, but nothing has prepared them for what’s about to come.

The wyr are alive, the Two who were never supposed to exist. They are destined to control the wyrd and fate of all mankind. Their very existence is destroying the world tree, on whose roots the fate of man is etched, and causing the Well of Wyrding, which sustains the world tree, to dissolve. Now Angelica and Jovian are hunted by the Norns, those three sisters of fate who guard the world tree and live at its roots, observing and preserving fate, who believe Angelica and Jovian are the wyr.

Angelica, Joya, and Jovian are on a race to escape the Norns as well as find their sister Amber, but with no clue where she could be, they turn their attention toward home, deep in the Holy Realm. The problem? Between them and their destination is the accursed land of eternal night: the Shadow Realm. Rumored to be filled with nightmarish creatures, forsaken to its shadowy depths, the Shadow Realm promises death to any from the Holy Realm who dare enter.

About the Author
Travis has been writing since he was 14.  He began writing a book called "The Calling of the Two" and while writing that on and off he started uncovering another idea.

"Yes, this is all well and good, but what about before? What happened in the world before these characters came into it?" He always knew there was a "before" and as he started wondering about it he got ideas. At first they were little ideas but as he discovered the names for his characters a whole story about them emerged.

Travis started working on The Revenant Wyrd Saga several years back and he is very happy he did because hearing and documenting Jovian and Angelica's story has been one wild ride for him.  He has also written the Infernal Design series.
 

He lives in a small town at the base of the Adirondack Mountains and hoofing around my neck of the woods gives him a ton of inspiration for his novels.   He loves research, and speculating on different ideas and theories.

My Review

I have had the benefit of reading this entire series so far and, as I've mentioned in my previous reviews, you must read all of the books leading up to this one in order to follow the story line. A fantastical adventure, Travis does not disappoint us in Book 4. These books do have adult situations, so I would not recommend them for children or teens. But with new creatures and places, A Guardian of Shadows will have you glued to its pages, eagerly awaiting Book 5!
