2022 Holiday Gift Guide: P'kolino Little Reader Armchair for Toddlers #giftsforkids


We love reading to our little ones to encourage their own love of reading. Now that our little guy is a toddler, we wanted to create a special reading nook where he can continue to read and explore his book collection independently. When we received the P'kolino Little Reader Chair, we instantly fell in love with it! This tiny armchair is absolutely adorable, super comfy and made of high-quality material, with a cover you can take off and throw in the washing machine. It's also light-weight and has a built-in handle on top, making it easy to move from room to room.  It's the perfect holiday gift for little ones this year!

Christmas time is here! Time to curl up and enjoy the holiday movies. This year, Pure Flix has over 190 movies to inspire and encourage the whole family. You can experience the difference that positive entertainment can have. As an ambassador for this Christian streaming service, I can tell you that it's the number one place to find quality Christian television shows and movies that you'll enjoy watching with your whole family.

With new quality faith and family entertainment every week, celebrate Christmas with Pure Flix and be inspired and encouraged all season long.

I was able to preview the movie "Lifemark", which is based on a true story from the documentary “I Lived on Parker Avenue.” David, the adopted son of Jimmy and Susan, is celebrating his 18th birthday, senior year of high school and preparing for his upcoming state wrestling championship where college scouts will be watching. David’s birth mother updates her address and his family needs to decide if they want to make contact or not. Flashbacks show Jimmy and Susan processing the death of their two young sons while trying to adopt another child. Flashbacks show Melissa and her boyfriend Brian making the decision to put their child up for adoption.
