Odyssey Adventure Club iPad Mini Giveaway!


 The end of summer is in sight, and OAC is giving away an iPad Mini back-to-school bundle! It might seem like summer just began for your kids, so if they need some added motivation to get their homework done, remind them they can jump on the Odyssey Adventure Club after their papers are written and their math problems are solved.

As members, your kids can also listen to Album 58 before the album is released to the public! Sign up today for just $5!

Here's what part one is about (which you can listen to for free HERE):
It’s a time of surprises as Wooton becomes the celebrity guest at Comic-Connellsville and Whit finds himself in conflict over the upcoming “Let’s Get Together Festival” in Odyssey. Plus, hear an interview with writer-director Paul McCusker about the entire 14-part series.
Album 58 was inspired by Focus on the Family’s The Family Project, a 12-session small group experience that explores the theological, philosophical, and cultural underpinnings of the traditional family, and combines that information with inspiring stories and practical tools to help 21st-century families thrive. Plus, here's a sneak peek of a new episode called "The Lone Lawman"!

 Jason, Whit, Red and the gang rustle up herds of fun while performing a new Kids’ Radio show set in the Old West. “The Lone Lawman” features a confused boy getting mixed up with a shifty band of bank robbers. Can a hero on horseback set things right? See just how wild the West can get in this action-packed send-up of old-time radio dramas.

Shenadoah Deams

Adventure and romance on the high seas.  Time travel to another century.  What do these have in common?  Melissa Smith is a school chaperone with the local elementary school and she enjoys sailing on the Shenandoah and the different classes of Holmes Hole.  She's not particularly savy on history but each night she finds herself in the middle of the Townsend Act and different important historical facts.  Will she find romance in the middle of which century?  Once the trip is over can she return to a normal life or will she forever be locked in a dream that she can't return from?

I have not had the pleasure of reading the other books in this series and looking forward to reading them.  I was given this book by the author in exchange for an honest review.

Lisa Belcastro lives with her family on Martha's Vineyard. She loves chocolate, gardening, outdoor activities, cooking, laughing, reading, traveling, a healthy dose of adventure, and her cat, Ben, who keeps her company while she spends hours working at the computer.  Fore more about Lisa go to he http://lisabelcastro.com/.
