Captain Sun Comic Book Giveaway

‘Holy priceless collection of superheros Batman!’  Recently in the media, there has been an influx of superheros and superheroines.  From Superman to Spiderman, and to Marvels ‘The Avengers’ coming out in March, there is always another hero here to save our figurative day. However over the Christmas season, as we tell our children tales of the ultimate superhero who came to earth and died to save us all so we can spend eternity in heaven, it’s nice to find resources to help us as Christians to share the ‘good news’ in such an exciting way with our family.

We all know that ‘with great power comes great responsibility’, so Pastor Bryce Morgan has used his power of the knowledge of Christ to create a totally awesome superhero named ‘Captain Sun’. "Rescue Me! What Superheroes Can Teach Us About the Power of Faith" is not a simply a ‘Christian’ comic/graphic novel. It’s a classic superhero story that kids of all ages will love. Also, it’s more than a comic book/graphic novel! Each comic chapter is followed by a short kid-friendly lesson that connects the theme of that chapter to the timeless truths of God’s word. This is a great resource for any child, and is available for purchase on, direct from the publisher, or in special edition format from

You can learn more about the book, see a preview edition of the book, and find information about buying the book here at the official Captain Sun website. You can also stay updated by subscribing to that site or by following Captain Sun on Facebook at

A Review of Celebrity Cruises

As you can tell from my ‘Where in the World was Epic Mom’ photos, I absolutely love to travel.  Forget just sitting on the beach, (although I like to do that too), I want to soak up the essence of the country I’m going to.  I want to see the sites, listen to the folktales, eat the foods and experience the culture.  I enjoy encountering fellow travellers and comparing notes about our experiences.  I have journaled my travels for many years and it is my belief that to truly capture the essence of any experience, you need to document it using as many senses as possible.  During this holiday season, I will be soaking up the sites and looking forward to sharing this new epic adventure with you!

A Review of Celebrity Cruises coming in the new year!

Bon Voyage!

The Zellers Saga Continues





My fellow bargin hunters, recently I came to you with news of epic deals and savings in a time of frugality and recession.  Since then, I have taken a trek over the vast terrain called world wide web to the realm of Zellers.  While exploring their Festive Finale, I voted to ‘set the sale’ to $10 off anything $40 or more as long as you wear red.  I voted for Christmas pop to be played at every Zellers next week.  I wanted to record a radio commercial, but I did not have the foggiest idea what I wanted it to be about!  If you want to get in on the fun then pop on over to the Festive Finale tab on the Zellers Facebook page to vote on exclusive coupons, record a real radio commercial and much, much more!
