What a wonderful idea. A way to bring music into your every day routing with sound, writing, images and an interactive app. Hilary has created a multi-media way to add inspiration to life with your phone.
I had a bit of a rough start with the app, first not able to log in to the website. Once I requested a new access code, and went to the website to register, I was unable to log in to the app itself because of a user error that said it couldn’t find my account. Streaming on a phone from the website itself is not optimal. I was also unable to join the closed member only FB page. Life brings us trials. that’s what it is. *update* We have heard back from support and were able to log on to the app with a new password. We are also able to access the FB group. It looks like a wonderfully supportive community.
Using the website I accessed the 2019 toolkit and I loved what I found. The music pulled me from a frustrated mood to a good one. The text is uplifting and I enjoyed all of the Jeffrey R. Holland quotes sprinkled in. The visuals are lovely with vivid colors. I have long been a fan of Hilary Weeks, so her music always brings back memories. It is fun that she is collaborating with Cherie Call on several songs, also a favorite singer, songwriter of mine. The content is all new.
My favorite song was fragile. I plan on going back through everything once I find support for the app and FB group. Overall, I hope to use each element and enjoy the writing pages. What I saw I love and recommend! Thank you Hilary for the free sneak peek.
Today’s brand new episode of Pretty Darn Funny features a stand off between moms in the war of the PTA raffle basket. Having been on the PTA board before, I can vouch for the crazy competitive, mom face offs that occur within “the ranks.” Meetings can get a little heated 🙂 But our giveaway features the perfect antidote to the problem, so be sure to watch Hilary Weeks’ video as well.
Enjoy Basket Case!
Gracie faces-off with a rival PTA mom to prove who is the busiest–and best–mom by gathering the most donations for the school basket auction. But pulling together 30 cute baskets the night before the fundraiser is a bigger job than she bargained for…
Everything Pretty Darn Funny is Brought to you by Deseret Book and Tinder Transmedia.
The giveaway that goes along with this episode is A- Mazing! Deseret Book has given us a Hilary Weeks Say Love CD, just released today! This is by far by favorite CD of the year. It’s inspiring and hopeful and rings me back to where I need to be every time I listen to it. The cover design is gorgeous, designed by Cassandra Barney. Here’s a sneak peek…
Each year the LDS Booksellers Convention holds a trade show called LDSBA to unveil the new covers and titles. This year I got to attend both days photographing signings, authors and booths out on the exhibit floor. There are so many amazing new books and music releases I want to share with you all!
First is Pocketful of Poetry by Mindy Gledhill, a music CD to be released September 10th by Deseret Book. Mindy’s music is whimsical and if you’ve never checked it out, you need to!
Have a listen…
Mindy was so kind, tweeting me on twitter and commenting on instagram to announce her signing. I’ve previewed the CD and LOVE it! She’s offering a free download of her song on her website so head on over there.
Next is new YA title from Covenant called Hadley- Hadley Benson by Jody Wind Durfee. This one has an autistic character which I always look for in a book…
Book Summary:When Maddi Benson moves in next door to Jaxon Quayle, neither of them knows how much life is about to change. Jaxon knows he should date only girls who share his faith, but as he gets to know Maddi he wants his new neighbor to be more than a friend. To make things even more complicated, there s Maddi s twin brother Hadley (or Hadley-Hadley, as he calls himself), who has special needs and always seems to be hanging around, and Jaxon s pal Tanner, who feels more than a little left out. Jaxon feels hopeful when the Bensons begin to consider joining the Church, which would solve at least one of his problems. But just when things seem to be working out, a horrible prank seems to make everything fall apart, leaving Maddi and Jaxon caught in the middle of doubt and faith, hurt and forgiveness, friendship and love.
Find out more on Goodreads.
And my final favorite pick from LDSBA is for another new CD, Say Love available September 9th by Hilary Weeks. Ummm… gorgeous cover!! Cassandra Barney is the cover artist. The music is heavenly (I’ve had a sneak peek).You will want this one.
