- It is well known that Black Friday is not the best time for ALL shopping. For electronics it is generally GREAT, but for things such as toys you will not see much of a difference in prices. It may feel good to get your shopping done early, but don't be surprised if you see the prices drop even lower a week before Christmas.
A free Bible app for children developed by YouVersion is set for launch on Thanksgiving day, complete with illustrations and interactive experiences, which promises to bring the "love for God's word" to young ones.
"What if your kids could walk through the garden with Adam and Eve, or journey through Bethlehem the night Jesus was born," a promotional video for the app states. "Through an animated adventure, your kids will explore the big stories of the Bible, earn rewards for special challenges, open the Bible again and again, and begin a lifetime of love for God's word."
The animated storybook app is made for smartphones and tablets, and features colorful illustrations with touch-activated animations, games and activities to help children remember what they learn, and a kid-friendly navigation, the official website explains. more >>
Benjamin Scot Miller filmed his son's first year, and this touching story has gone viral on YouTube. Born prematurely, Ward Miles was too small for his mother to hold, and even when she could hold him, he needed a complex medical apparatus to stay alive.
"He was born way too early, and the obstacles he had to overcome were really big, but not bigger than our God," Miller wrote about the video. He posted it last Friday, on his wife, Lyndsey's, birthday, "as a gift to her." The video has since found more than 4.7 million views, with nearly 37,000 "likes."
"This is a story of a mother's love for her baby," Miller wrote. The video opens on July 20, 2012, four days after Ward's birth, when Lyndsey finally got to hold him. Born over three months premature, Ward weighed just under 1.5 pounds four days after birth. more >>
