BEWARE! Clairol $2 Coupon DOESN'T WORK for Herbal Essence

Have you seen people posting about this deal where they say to use the $2/1 Clairol product coupon from the 10/31 PG on Herbal Essence products?  Well, tried it today and the coupon beeps.  It may be technically correct that the coupon should work, but the reality is that it does not.  To make matters harder to argue in the store (not that I would....I pick my battles), the only pictures on the coupon are for the hair color boxes.

If you get a cashier that overrides....lucky day for you!

Book Review: The Treasure of God's Word

The Treasure of God's Word: Celebrating 400 Years of the King James Bible by Jack Countryman

This book is bound in what feels like leather and has gold edged pages to give it a more collectible feel than just another book to read. I consider this book to be a devotional or quick scripture reference. There are 45 distinct topics that are covered and provide the entire referenced scripture verse. Some of the topics range from God’s grace to humility.

I enjoyed the short opening which gave the history of how the King James Version came into existence; it was very enlightening and provided historical reference that I had not found in any other book I have read. The content of the book was well organized and provided the entire verse instead of just a portion and a reference back to the original verse in the Bible. I really don’t think that other than the opening few pages with the historical references, that this book seemed any different than other devotions or topical books of its kind. I wasn’t much of a fan of the “old” look and feel of the book; it seems strangely out of place when compared to other reference or devotional books. The pages are nice and well suited to a devotional gift book, however.

Book Review: The Grace of God

The Grace of God by Andy Stanley

The Grace of God is a book that seeks to explain the hard issues people have with understanding grace. Stanley explains how the God of the Old Testament is not any different than the God of the New Testament, but that our perception is that God is different because of the way He uses His grace. Stanley also points out God’s grace in various Bible stories that we don’t often look at in the light of grace.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and found it changed my outlook on life. The main message I got out of the book is that grace is not fair, it is not deserved, and there is nothing we can do (or not do) to obtain grace (or lose it). Grace is God’s gift and He can dispense it as He sees fit. When you look at grace in this light, you realize that sometimes bad people get a break or forgiveness when we think they don’t deserve it…maybe that’s God’s grace. Who are we to judge what is fair for God to do and what is not…HE IS GOD, WE ARE NOT.
