Fabulous Family Friday Returns! Helpful Reviews

It certainly took long enough!  :)


I thought I’d give the reviews I promised last week!


First, a miracle product!


Two weeks before certifications, my right hand broke out in this awful rash.  I’ve gotten it before, but it’s been a long time since the last time it broke out.  My guess (and Teresa confirmed this) was that it was s-t-r-e-s-s!  My adrenals were stressed already from the cold/sore throat/cough I had for 3 weeks in December, Christmas, preparing for certifications, and my hand was itchy and so red.  Parts of it broke open and would bleed from time to time!  I wish I had taken a picture so you could understand how uncomfortable and bad it was!


Lauren (one of the super-duper office girls at T-Tapp!) told me I needed to show my hand to Teresa, that she had something for it.  So I did.


When I showed Teresa, she had something in her bag, so she put a little on my hand.  She told me it would sting a bit, but it should start feeling better.  I know it had colloidal silver in it, as well as MSM.  It didn’t sting too badly, and it quit itching so intensely!  ( I would wake myself up scratching it. :( )


I was amazed just from that one application  how much better it felt!  Even the next day it felt better and wasn’t quite so red and angry looking!


So she gave me a small jar to use out of for the rest of the week, then before I went home took a little out for her and gave me the rest of a bottle that she had.  I used it three times a day, and in just 3-4 days the rash was nearly gone!


What was this miracle stuff?!


Silver Majik Lotion!


It doesn’t take much, really, so a full bottle would probably last a loonnnnggg time! I still have plenty left in the partial bottle she sent me home with!  I used it 3 times a day for a few weeks, now I use it twice a day.  I have just a tiny little spot on my hand now.  It truly is amazing!





Next review—pillows! :)


I have this thing about pillows…I’m a side sleeper and I can’t get one to stay firm enough for longer than 3 months!   And who keeps the packaging and wants to send a pillow back to the company to cash in on their 3 year warranty?!


(I can see that conversation:


Dallas:  what is all this plastic wrapping?

Me:  To all the pillows I own, in case they go flat and  I need to send one back before the warranty is up!


Um….yeah!  I have enough junk in this house….and the garage….and the shop….and…. :p )



I slept at a friend’s home the night before we flew out to Ft. Lauderdale a year ago for filming the PBS special for T-Tapp.  I loved her pillow on her guest bed!  It was a Sealy and I could tell it wasn’t going to go flat in just a few months!  And the firm was truly “firm”!  Without being a rock!



I did some checking online, and found J.C. Penney carries Sealy pillows.  My husband and I were going out to eat at a restaurant a few weeks ago that was near a mall that had a Penney’s, so we looked.  They had all three kinds on the website.  I found the “firm” custom support pillow was…um…not firm enough for me!


Then I found the Encompass one was even less firm!


So I tried the Grand Impressions one—and it was just right! ;)


This one had a few mixed reviews, but I thought it was worth the gamble.  I’ve only had it a few weeks, so we’ll see how it actually holds up, but it’s the first pillow that really supports my neck (I get shoulder issues from my neck not being supported) but it is soft on my face/cheek. I had one pillow that was great–but I felt it put my jaw out of alignment!  (Get one end fixed, the other goes out!)


Penney’s was very reasonable, and this way I didn’t have to pay shipping–I would have went with the Custom Support or Encompass by the reviews–so I was so glad to find them where I could feel how supportive they were!


And no, I did not keep the plastic wrapping to know where to send it if it breaks down! ;)  I’ll report back in a few months to let you know how it’s holding up!





Finally, a book review!





My pastor’s wife gave me 31 Days of Praise by Ruth Myers several years ago.  I ended up getting some of her other books as well!  I go through periods of time where I don’t use any devotionals, and others where I have 4 or 5 going!


I love how she has taken Scripture and created beautiful praise prayers to our Lord!   Because of going through this book several times, I have gotten the knack of doing the same with my daily reading in the Psalms.  I used to read 5 Psalms every day to go through the whole book in a month.  Then I started slowing it down, and now I only read one Psalm a day, savoring it more slowly, using the words and thoughts to pray/praise back to my beautiful Savior and Lord.


All of her books are good (31 Days of Prayer, 31 Days of Power, The Satisfied Heart (now called 31 Days of Drawing Near to God), but this one on praise is especially powerful.  I highly, highly recommend it! It will revolutionize your devotional time and your prayers!



I hope these reviews have been helpful!
