A few Narwhal facts:

  • Narwhals are a porpoise, related to the Orca and the Bottlenose dolphin
  • They travel in pods
  • Instead of migrating, they remain in the Arctic
  • Their horn or tusk is actually a very sensitive tooth
  • The tooth can grow to be 9 or 10 feet long
  • They eat Shrimp and squid

Ok, enough facts, time for the awesome DIY fun. Thanks to www.joann.com, there is an awesome craft to make a Narwhal out of a balloon! It is literally as easy as inflating the balloon, printing and cutting out the template, and taping it to the balloon.

The God Who Sees is Released Today by Kathie Lee Gifford

Easter is just around the corner. While we are all getting ready for the Easter Bunny, candies, and the Easter egg hunts, it is also the time to remember what Easter is truly about, the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, the only Son of God. To honor the events of the Bible that lead to the ultimate sacrifice for all, Kathie Lee Gifford journeyed through Israel and the experience changed her life. Today she shares that life-changing experiences in a short film recording the stories of Hagar, Ruth, David and Jesus. The short film is available today at GodWhoSees.com and features Nicole C. Mullen and the wonderful song “The God Who Sees”



NEW YORK, NY (April 5, 2019) – Kathie Lee Gifford released her film directorial debut today, which can be found at www.godwhosees.com.

The God Who Sees is a breathtaking short film based on the song of the same title, available also on iTunes now, and is written by Gifford and Grammy-nominated, Nicole C. Mullen. Mullen is featured as the narrator and performer as she journeys throughout the Holy Land recounting the stories of Hagar, Ruth and David during their wilderness experiences, and ending with Mary Magdalene in Jerusalem at the tomb of the Risen Savior, Jesus.

In addition to the accompanying film, the song, photos, behind the scenes, a “Making Of” featurette, other resources and materials are available at www.godwhosees.com.

The God Who Sees is a product of Gifford’s The Rock, The Road, and The Rabbi Foundation, which she established through her heart for rabbinical study and her life-changing experiences in Israel, with a purpose to utilize the arts to produce films and music that will bring the glorious experience of learning Scripture from the Holy Land to a hurting world.

To highlight Gifford’s final week on NBC’s TODAY, Mullen surprised her with a stirring rendition of the song, seen in this emotional performance live on the TODAY Show here, earlier this week.

The 11 ½ minute song “The God Who Sees,” which quickly rose to the top of iTunes charts immediately upon this week’s release, can be purchased here.

About The Rock, The Road, and The Rabbi Foundation:
Kathie Lee established the foundation after being so strongly impacted by her rabbinical study trips to Israel in recent years. She decided to set up a 501c3 to be used as an evangelistic tool seeking to share the Word of God and hoping to touch souls.

Kathie Lee’s belief is that the Word of God, when studied in the land of its origin, with extraordinary rabbinic scholars, is the most transforming power she’s ever experienced. In light of that, she looks forward to using the arts to produce films and music that will bring the glorious experience of learning Scripture from the Holy Land to a needy world.

The first project is the short film, THE GOD WHO SEES. She co-wrote the song with Grammy-nominated Christian artist, Nicole C. Mullen. Nicole also performs the song. They traveled to Israel in March of 2019 to film with Kathie directing the powerful piece.

Kathie’s hope is that The Rock, The Road, and The Rabbi Foundation will be a vehicle for friends who are similarly aligned in their desire to share the Word of God in a world that is in desperate need of the Gospel of Jesus. Info can be found at: www.godwhosees,com

Kim Possible: A Movie Review and Giveaway!

“Call me, beep me, if you want to reach me.” is a song many of us grew up with when it comes to one of Disney Channel’s best animated series, Kim Possible. The show features a high school girl named Kim Possible who saves the world with her best friend Ron, his naked mole rat Rufus, and a computer geek named Wade. Together they make up Team Possible. Inspired by the animated series, the studio that brought us Teen Beach and Descendants, brings Kim Possible to life in their new live-action movie available on DVD March 26th.

I received a copy of Kim Possible on DVD to do a review.
Note: SPOILERS ahead.



Kim Possible the movie takes place in the time before the animated series. In the animated series, Kim Possible is 16 year old teen, confident, and taking on some of the most dastardly super-villains. In the movie, she has been thwarting evil villains but has yet to embark on her most dangerous mission yet…being a freshman in High School.

Middleton High School

Kim Possible the movie is actually a pretty decent Disney Channel movie. The graphics weren’t half bad, Sadie Stanley is an awesome actor who did Kim Possible justice, we get to see Christy Carlson Romano (YAY), and the story line is meaningful and action packed. I call it a win all around.

Christy Carlson Romano

When the movie first starts, the audience dives into an immediate life threatening scenario where Kim and Ron must save a scientist and the world from dying in a sparkly acidic sludge. But it turns out to be “so not the drama” as Kim saves the day with the help from Wade. Ron, well he was there and…helpful. I will admit the whole scene felt a little cartoonish, but then again, Kim Possible is based off of a cartoon so it works.

Kim, Ron and Wade

The drama begins when Kim and Ron start high school and find that their freshman year will be harder than planned. Kim soon discovers that freshman can’t be on the soccer team, classrooms are on separate ends of the school (making her always late), and no matter what she does, perfection seems impossible to reach, especially when a new friend, Athena, joins their team out-shinning Kim from the moment she gets her hair done. All this leads to the fading of Kim’s spark, which gives the evil Dr. Drakken and Shego a chance to once again try and take over the world.

Dr. Drakken and Shego

With her spark diminished, Kim seeks assistance from her family to find out who she is since she isn’t the best crime fighter. She learns from her grandma that crime fighting is what she does, not who she is. So just like Kim’s life has changed by entering high school, so does her perception of who she is or who she is meant to be. Meaning, Kim is one step closer to becoming that 16 year old, confident, crime fighting hero we all totally love.

Kim Possible and her mom, grandma,…and Ron

I found it pretty awesome that instead of Kim seeking help from someone outside of her family unit, she actually looks to her grandma, mom, and dad. Her faith in her family is actually what helps her overcome the new feelings of inadequacy, making her even more confident and heroic. No matter what happens, her family is there to help, proving once again that anything is possible for a Possible.

If you are a Kim Possible fan like myself, here is a chance for you to own the all new Kim Possible DVD! Simply follow he instructions and enter for a chance to win. Some of the tasks can be done daily for more entries!

Comic Books & Movies Unite in Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse

SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE, swings onto 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack, and DVD on March 19 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment and Sony Pictures Animation. I was lucky enough to receive a copy of the DVD to do a review and I can’t believe what I just watched.




We all know the story: Boy gets bit by radioactive spider and becomes Spider-Man. There isn’t a secret story here. It has been told a lot over the years in different comic books and movies. So when I sat down to review Spider-Man into the Spider-verse, I expected something I had seen before but through the eyes of a new artist. Really, I thought, “Here comes another cliche story-line that writers seem to enjoy scripting where we have a background story leading to a climax. and finishing with a rather conducive end with the possible death of a hero or loved one.”

My thought of this being another cliche story was soon tossed into the wind provided by Spider-Man from 1933. You know, the one that likes to fight Nazis…a lot.

While this story of Spider-Man does feature the, “boy gets bit by a radioactive spider” scenario, Miles’ beginning is a little different. He starts by learning he is not alone in his endeavor to save the world. Heroes are everywhere, in everyone, and even in other dimensions, such as Peni Parker or Peter Porker.

Peni Parker from Spider-Man into the Spider-verse

Spider-Man into the Spider-verse is a roller coaster ride of emotions from laughter to tears, to an absolute galactic amount of awesomeness. I know this seems like an over exaggeration, but for a comic book lover like myself, this movie hit all the right notes. It’s as if a Spider-Man comic book came alive on my TV screen! Just look at the awesome art with the dialog in yellow boxes! (The fan-girl inside of me is screaming.)

The refreshing and bold design of Spider-Man into the Spider-Verse revitalizes the fandom with quirky characters, awesome art, and the seamless combination of comic books and movies. It is a must watch for any Spider-Man fan!

And yes, that is a Black and White Spider-Man trying to figure out the rubik’s cube in the image below.

Now if you will excuse me, I am going to go burn a match down to my finger tips and get in touch with my inner Spider-Man Noir.
