Get $3 when you sign up for Swagbucks in March (US)

Want some extra boost for your budget this month? 

If you haven't tried Swagbucks before, you can get a bonus $3 for signing up as my referral in March. Swagbucks is a rewards site where you earn points (called SB) for things you're probably doing online already, like searching, watching videos, discovering deals, and taking surveys. Then you take those points and exchange them for gift cards to places like Amazon, Starbucks, Walmart, Target, or PayPal cash. 

When you sign up through me, you can earn an additional $3 bonus! Here's how: 

1. Sign up using this link 
2. Earn 300 SB total before 4/1/18. You'll get a $3 (300 SB) bonus for it! 

3. If you want even more bonuses, you'll get a $10 (1000 SB rebate) bonus for making your first shop purchase! That's in addition to the SB you earn for every dollar you spend.  

That's it. It's super easy, and Swagbucks is for real. I use it myself, and I've earned $100 Amazon giftcard!

Moments With Mercy- Interview With Dean Butler!

Hey y'all! As I've mentioned before, I am a huge fan of classic television.
I recently had the chance to interview Dean Butler who portrayed Almanzo (Manly) Wilder in the popular tv show Little House On The Prairie!  This show is a personal favorite of my family's, so it was such an honor to have the opportunity to chat with Dean.

So without further ado, let's get started!

Mercy: Can you tell us a little bit about yourself and what inspired you to start acting?
Dean: Let me give you some deep biographical information, Mercy.  Let's go way back.  I was born in Prince George, British Columbia Canada in 1956.  My father was a member of the United States Air Force at that point and he was stationed there.  I was raised for the majority of my young life in the San Francisco Bay area.  When I started pursuing acting, I moved to Los Angeles and I spent the vast majority of my acting life in Los Angeles, and some time in New York. Now in my producing life, I've worked al…

Day 22 of When God Calls The Heart!

Hi Hearties!

As some of you know, when I did my review 22 days ago WGCTH I said that I would also do a post on day 20 and day 40.  I apologize for this coming 2 days late...  I've been really busy recently and it slipped my mind.  So I'll just do up to devotional 22 :)

So, let's get started!  What I'll do is share a little bit from each of my favorite devotions so far.

I have to say, in all honesty, that the very first devotion is this book is probably my favorite so far.  I know I went over some of this in my first post, but I thought I'd go over it a little bit again.

It's titled: "Dream Big... Expect Surprises"
This is something that is close to my heart.  God may not give you what you want, when you want it. Or He may not even give what you want. Sometimes, we are on the right track but we have problems along the way or we're not getting quite where we want to be. But in the end you just have to trust God and know that whatever it is, His will…

Moments With Mercy- Interview with Masey McLain

Hello everyone!

I first heard of Masey McLain back when filming was going on for the movie about Rachel Scott, called- I'm Not Ashamed.  While I have to admit the reason I first knew about this movie was because Ben Davies, who I recognized from the film Courageous had posted about it. I started following along as they were filming and started following Masey on social media, I immediately became a fan!  Her sweet spirit shines through, and she is such a nice, humble person.
Now, instead of me just talking about her, let's, let her do the talking. :)

Mercy: What started your interest in acting?
Masey: My interest in acting started when I was little I think. My mom has a huge background in musical theater, and she always choreographed these incredible plays that the whole town would come to, and I just always remember thinking how magical they were. My sister and I also were always putting on plays and making our family watch, so I think I’ve always had that desire in me to perf…

Moments With Mercy - Interview With Greg Morton!

Hi, friends!
I'm so excited to be back from vacation and sharing this interview with you all.  As I've mentioned in interviews/posts before, classic tv is a personal favorite of mine. From musicals from the '30s to suspense/mystery tv series from the '80s, I love them all!

My sister stumbled across Greg Morton's FB page and told me about it, so I reached out him and was so thrilled when he agreed to an interview!
For those of you who don't know, Greg played Jamie King on the hit tv show Scarecrow and Mrs. King.  My sisters and I watch this series a lot (we're currently rewatching the series from start to finish) and it was such an honor to conduct an interview with an actor from this beloved series.  So without further ado, here's my interview.

Mercy: Can you tell us a little bit about yourself.
Greg: Well, I got started in the entertainment industry by doing stage musicals before moving on to television commercials, and finally, landing the part of Jami…

Review And Giveaway of The Sea Before Us by Sarah Sundin

Hi everyone, so excited to be back and sharing another review and giveaway with you all!
Sarah Sundin is my personal favorite author and I was so thrilled to receive a copy of her new book for review.  (Some of you may remember I interviewed her last year when one of her books was released). 
This book is the start of a new series for Sarah called Sunrise At Normandy. The Sea Before Us follows the story of Lt. Wyatt Paxton and Wren Dorothy Fairfax.

Dorothy pieces together reconnaissance photographs with thousands of holiday snapshots of France—including those of her family’s summer home—in order to create accurate maps of Normandy. Maps that Wyatt will turn into naval bombardment plans.As the two spend concentrated time together in the pressure cooker of war, their deepening friendshi…
