Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition

I am a BzzAgent and I LOVE it! I get to try all kinds of cool products and coupons and all I have to do is share my honest opinion with the panel and other people. If you want to learn more about becoming a BzzAgent, just click HERE. The latest product that I got to test out was Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition shampoo and conditioner.

Here is a picture of the kit that came in the mail:

As you can see, I got two full size bottles! I was SO excited. I have to admit that prior to this campaign, I was using generic shampoo and conditioner. We're trying to save money and I've found that the store brand isn't much different than the brand names. After trying Garnier Fructis, I might have just changed my mind. One of my favorite things about this product is the smell. It smells wonderful! It's like a green apple scent. Yummy! I also have to say that after just a couple of days, my hair was noticeably softer. I also noticed something that others might not notice, and that is the different shapes in the bottles. For people with my mom who have poor eyesight, I think it would be a great help to have the shampoo and conditioner bottles shaped differently. This way you can just feel the bottles instead of having to read which one is which.

I have very fine hair. I love that this product doesn't weigh my hair down, but you have to rinse very well after using the conditioner because it goes on pretty thick. The only negative I have is that after using the product for about a month, I feel like I need a change. This is a problem that I have yet to solved though. Because of my fine hair, I just have to change it up for a bit. Even though I'll change it for now, I do plan to come back to the triple nutrition. Maybe the BzzAgent sight will have something else for me to try that will solve this problem!  ;0)  I give Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition 4 out of 5 stars!

Thankful Thursday

Today I am thankful for the realization that if I wait on the Lord, He will work it all out. Without going into great detail, I have been having health issues this week. I've been pretty miserable and anxious about possible things that could be wrong. Today I decided to spend more time in the Word and in prayer. During this time, not only did His Word speak to me so clearly, but I started feeling better. By the time I left my room, I felt about 90% better and one issue I was really concerned about had completely resolved itself. I'm learning to rest in Him more and more and fully surrender myself to Him. I haven't forgotten what my ONE WORD was at the beginning of the year...surrender!

The Gift of Tongues

For those of you who stumbled upon this post and have received the gift of speaking in tongues, I have a question for you. When you first started speaking in tongues, did the words just flow right out of your mouth, or was it something that took practice? I believe that I have been baptized in the Holy Spirit and have received the gift of tongues, but it almost feels forced to me and it sounds nothing at all like what I hear from those around me at church. It just doesn't flow and continue. I get a few syllables at a time, with several pauses in between. There are two sounds that often come out of my mouth, so it's just like repeating those same sounds a lot, but again, they don't sound like anything I've heard at church. I would appreciate any input from those who are seasoned in this area.

Thankful Thursday

Today I'm thankful that for my church, Bethel Harvest Church. It's the most alive church I've ever experienced and I thank the Lord for leading me and my family to it. I've witnessed so many miracles and have even experienced some miracles for myself. We see salvations almost every single week. In fact, this is the church where my son gave his life to the Lord. The praise and worship is off the hook and I'm so happy and privileged to be a part of it. Our preacher is highly anointed and just tells it like it is. No sugar coating to make you feel more comfortable. I love that about him. He's real and honest. He's just like you and me. Bethel is a place where people belong. There are no perfect people there. It doesn't matter what your past looks like, come to Bethel and we will love you!


I want my praise to be real.
I want God to feel
it from my heart. 

When I lift my hands up high
it's not for a show.
It's just an easy way for me 
to glorify His name.
This used to be hard for me.
But now I do it freely
without any shame.

Draw me closer Lord, closer.
Pull me up under Your wing.
Let me feel Your love
as I let Your praises ring.

I pour my heart out to You.
Singing about Your mercy and grace
with everything that I got.
Standing before You
my heart beats faster
and I feel my body getting hot.

Take me to another place
where I'll never be too distant
from Your face.

Let Your glory shine on me
as I draw even closer to You
and I drop to my knees.

Hands held high
with tears in my eyes
I wish I knew a way to praise you harder.
You're everything to me.
Lord You'll always be my father!
