I am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban by Malala Yousafzai AND BOOK GIVEAWAY

We received a sample in exchange for a honest and unbiased review. This is a sponsored post on behalf of Review Wire Media for Nat Geo. I received information to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.



We have had the opportunity to review the documentary, He named Me Malala.

This is the intimate documentary of Malala Yousafzai. At 15 years old Malala and her father were targeted by the Taliban for advocating for education. Malala was shot in the head while on board a school bus in Pakistan. This sparked an international media outrage.

On October 9th 2012, the Taliban shot at Malala and her friends while they were on a school bus in Swat Valley, Pakistan. Malala was shot in the head and not expected to survive. The reason she was targeted is she had the courage to voice her support of girls having an education, and for her own right to have an education. As it had been banned by the Taliban in her region. Malala survived being shot in the head.



The documentary is directed by Davis Guggenheim. He is best known for films like "Waiting For Superman" and "An inconvenient Truth". He was the only director approached by the producers. They felt his style of film making would put the family at ease. A lot of the film's content is a result of his long conversations with them.

The director decided early to weave in the history of Malala's family and her heritage. With help from Image Nation and an animation team the story of Malala's parents as children and herself growing up in beautiful Swat Valley before the Taliban are brought to life through animated screen.

This is an uplifting and inspiring documentary of one courageous girl who wasn't afraid to speak loud for what she believed in. I believe despite being PG-13 this movie would be great for all ages. The run time is 1 hour and 27 minutes.

Global broadcast of He Named Me Malala will air February 29 the 8pm est/7pm cst.

I Will Follow Jesus Bible Storybook Review

We received a sample in exchange for a honest an unbiased review.

Bestselling author Judah Smith and his wife, Chelsea has authored a beautiful Bible storybook illustrated by Alexandra Ball, sharing their gospel message in a simple way so that children can fully grasp the understanding of Jesus and his love for them, so that they might follow him. My grandchildren love listening to bedtime stories as do most. This book fell right in line with their routine of books. They have really enjoyed the ones we have read. They hear a story from each of three books, per night they are here and they were very excited to see a new one had arrived. I have a feeling we will be going down to one book until "I Will Follow Jesus" storybook is completed. I even see rereads in my future which makes me happy.


Through these Bible stories from the old and new testament children will learn about Jesus' life and purpose on earth. The stories are accompanied by personal devotions from Judah and Chelsea to encourage children to apply these bible stories. These pages include a prayer to help children start a conversation with God.

The Bible storybook was created so that you can read and discuss each story at your own pace with your child. This is a wonderful new tool to teach children about the wonderful God they have, so that they may be inspired to grow in faith and follow Jesus. The book has beautiful illustrations and easy to read Bible stories written in a child's own language.

This is a thick, sturdy, hardcover, book, in the front is a presentation page for personalization or gifting, and a ribbon bookmark attached to the book. At the end of the book is a letter for children encouraging them to know Jesus. This Bible story book can be enjoyed by children of all ages.

Judah Smith affirms that despite hectic schedules "Nothing is more important than leading our children to follow Christ"

Judah is the lead pastor of the City Church in Seattle Washington. The City Church is a thriving multistage church noted for its cultural relevance, commitment to biblical integrity, faith and love for Jesus.

Judah is known around the U.S. and the world for his preaching ministry. His fresh anointed humerus messages demystify the Bible and make Christianity real. Judah is also the author of his most recent New York Times bestselling book Jesus is __.

You can purchase via Amazon , Target or most Christian Book Stores.

Lugz Empire HI SP Boots Review

We received a sample in exchange for a honest an unbiased review.

We had the recent opportunity to facilitate a review for the Empire HI SP boots from Lugz.



My son spends most of his work day on his feet, so a good pair of boots is essential. After complaining about not getting enough support and having aching feet everyday, I decided he needed to give the Lugz a go. We have always been Lugz lovers and he was quite happy to be trying them out.

After a week I asked my son if he was breaking into the Lugz nicely. He said he was, that even the couple days of breaking into his new boots were more comfortable than the previous pair he had owned.


My son really liked that the boots have a memory foam insole that provides comfort and stability for hours. The boots have a nice deep tread that is slip resistant and keep his feet dry. The boots are sturdy and provide the ankle support he wasn't getting from his old boots.

These Empire HI SP boots from Lugz features a patented Flexastride memory foam technology. They have been tested to be slip resistant as well as scuff resistant. Their made from high quality material that will withstand any outdoor conditions year round.


After wearing the Lugz Empires my son is sure he's found his permanent work boot, and is certain that these will last a long time. Not only are they comfortable, he works 8 and 10 hour days, they are stylish as well. He can leave work and meet up with his wife with only a change of shirt. It's always nice when you don't have to give up style for comfort. It's also nice that you can get these high quality sturdy boots at prices that are affordable.

Lugz was created in October of 1993. They were eventually endorsed by key players from the world of hip hop. Products from Lugz are styled using the highest and most durable construction.

Today Lugz has expanded beyond the boots, they have added casual shoes, sandals and athletics to their mix.

If your having the snow and the slush we are having in our part of the world, you will definitely want to check into a great pair of boots. Head over to Lugz they have great footwear for the whole family!
