 Elise, a grandmother hurt by her past, and Patrick, a widowed pastor, have closed the door on love. But with faith and a little help from technology, will their live-streamed romance find a way?

Many thanks to Pure Flix for providing a sample of the product for this review. My opinions are 100% my own.

“Heaven Sent” is a romantic comedy about refinding love later in life and rediscovering joy after loss. and it airs on Pure Flix starting February 3rd! This is a romantic comedy movie about finding love, hope, and joy after loss. This is the perfect movie to watch on Valentine's Day.

 This new romantic comedy that will be playing on Pure Flix shares stories of three couples at different stages of life and is a journey through finding love, hope, and joy after loss. The theme of the movie is love – romantic love and the love of God. I had the privilege of watching Heaven Sent before it debuts on Pure Flix and I must say that I enjoyed watching this romantic comedy.

Heaven Sent Synopsis:

Elise, a grandmother hurt by her past, and Patrick, a widowed pastor, have closed the door on love. But with faith and a little help from technology, will their live-streamed romance find a way?

Starring: Karen Abercrombie, Jemarcus Kilgore, J Leon Pridgen II, Charlene Tilton, Michael J. Patterson, Elizabeth Byland, and Gary Doudran.


“Heaven Sent” is a dynamic and heartfelt story about love at different stages of life.

 Elise gave up on love long ago after losing her son many years ago. She focused all her energy on raising her grandson and love did not have a place in her life. Elise wanted nothing to do with dating until she met a widowed pastor through a singles night that her friend invited her to. Patrick, who lost his wife 5 years ago, was also at the event, not by choice, as his parish was playing matchmaker.  Patrick was not looking for a relationship either. 

Through a chance meeting, after they both left the dating event, love found Elise and Patrick. I love that Heaven Sent shows that you are never too old to open the door on love. 

 “It’s about trusting God’s plan and allowing Him to lead you through transitions in your life.”

The Pure Flix Original movie “Heaven Sent” starts streaming on February 3. Make sure to watch Heaven Sent on Pure Flix.

GATSBY Chocolate Is Guilt Free ~ Plant Based ~ Low Sugar ~ Low calorie

If you enjoy chocolate but not the sugar and calories, then you need to try GATSBY Chocolate. This Chocolate has HALF THE CALORIES or less when compared to other chocolate brands!


 Can chocolate be healthy and taste good at the same time? When you think of healthy chocolate, what comes to mind? For me, healthy chocolate used to mean yucky-tasting dark chocolate that had no sweetness. How can someone say that dark chocolate tastes good? This is like saying black coffee tastes good! Dark chocolate might be good for you but the taste is not worth it. 

 I would rather eat a small piece of unhealthy chocolate once a week than several pieces of dark chocolate every day. Dark chocolate just leaves a bad taste in my mouth. 

 I received this product for free from Moms Meet (momsmeet.com) to use and post my honest opinions. This post may contain affiliate links.

Discover GATSBY Chocolate

 When I heard about a company that makes an unbelievably indulgent, melt-in-your-mouth dark chocolate that tastes good, I had to taste this chocolate to see if it lives up to its claim. So I said yes to GATSBY Chocolate to see if it tasted good. 


 I was glad that GATSBY sent me samples of their plant-based chocolate to taste. GATSBY also makes milk-based chocolates which I can't enjoy since discovering a dairy allergy(through an at-home blood allergy test) was causing me to have severe asthma symptoms. I have been dairy-free for almost 5 years and I was glad that I could enjoy some chocolate.

About GATSBY Chocolate

  An unbelievably indulgent, melt-in-your-mouth chocolate that’s somehow way fewer calories and a fraction of the sugar compared to other premium chocolate. In fact, GATSBY Chocolate products have two to three times fewer calories than comparable products. GATSBY Chocolate is low in sugar at only 2 grams of sugar per serving.

Just the facts

• Low calorie: the first and only low-cal chocolate with half the calories

of even sugar-free brands

• Low sugar: 90% less sugar than premium chocolate brands

• Low-fat: 90% less fat than premium chocolate brands

• Keto-friendly: only 1–2 grams of net carbs per serving, or 6 grams of

net carbs for an entire bar

• Vegan varieties: Sea Salt Extra Dark, Almond Dark, and Dark

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

• Typically retails for $2.99–$3.99

 GATSBY Chocolate was founded by the co-founder of Halo Top ice cream. Doug Bouton and his team members created this chocolate after discovering there were no low-calorie options of chocolate available on the market. Even low-sugar chocolate options had almost as many calories as regular chocolate! It took these guys more than a year to develop the recipe for GATSBY Chocolate but the result was worth it. This indulgent, melt-in-your-mouth chocolate has fewer calories and a fraction of the sugar compared to premium chocolate.

 I was sent 6 bars of GATSBY Almond Dark Chocolate and I was surprised at the taste of the chocolate bar.  This bar of chocolate had a nice flavor of chocolate and no nasty dark chocolate taste. I had to sample several pieces of the chocolate bar to formulate my opinion but at 70 calories for 1/3 of the bar, I had no guilt doing just that.

 I admit that I sampled 6 pieces of the low-calorie chocolate bar and I enjoyed every bite! I really loved that the chocolate was made with good ingredients and nothing artificial. I also loved that I was getting 4 grams of fiber per serving with my chocolate fix and 2 grams of protein. So if I ate the whole bar of chocolate, I would be getting 12 grams of fiber and 6 grams of protein with only 210 calories! I call that a nutrition win.


GATSBY's secret to low-sugar chocolate

 The secret to the amazing low calories is a natural sweetener called Allulose. Allulose is a rare sugar that naturally occurs in fruits like figs and raisins and it’s about 70% as sweet as sugar. Therefore the GATSBY Chocolate is low in sugar at only 2 grams of sugar per serving! Allulose is sweet and rich tasting but has no funny sugar alcohol or chemical taste.

 I like that GATSBY discovered allulose. This is not my first experience with this zero-calorie sweetener. Several years ago, my family got to sample ice cream made with allulose sweetener and they enjoyed the ice cream. I have also enjoyed allulose sweetener products in my coffee. So I am happy to see other products being made with this sweetener.

Where to purchase GATSBY Chocolate

 GATSBY Chocolate Bars are available to purchase at Kroger, Ralphs, Mariano’s, Fred Meyer, Dillons, Smith’s, Fry’s, QFC, City Market. and online at gatsbychocolate.com 

GATSBY makes 11 varieties of low-sugar chocolate bars and cups. Several of the products are made with plant-based ingredients also, so we dairy-free people can enjoy chocolate too.

Stay on track of your diet & fitness goals when you save this many calories and grams of fat & sugar with GATSBY Chocolate.



4 Tips for Furthering Your Career When You’re a Parent


 No matter how rewarding it is to be a parent, sometimes it might feel difficult to be able to juggle your parenting responsibilities while also managing your performance as an employee.

Here are four tips for furthering your career as a working parent.

1. Work Smarter, Not Harder

 As a working parent, time is precious in both your professional and personal lives, so make sure you can prioritize each. 

 It might help to compartmentalize your day so you can have separate hours of the day for personal and professional errands and concentrate on each area separately.

 To do this, you could invest in a diary, or even make use of the calendar function from Google to keep track of appointments you need to attend. Companies like Paperchase stock some wonderful full-year diaries for you to track events in.

 Dedicating specific time to focus on your family will also help you to build lasting and strong relationships with your children.

2. Study a Distance Learning Degree

 If you want to extend your skill set in your existing career, you could enroll in a distance learning degree that will allow you the flexibility to learn around your working hours. This means that you can work your degree around all your other responsibilities easily, including your childcare obligations. 

 This will provide you with the skills you need to progress your career, while also teaching you additional transferable skills like time management and personal discipline. 

 Universities like Anglia Ruskin can help you find the perfect course for your interests and career choice that will lead you to success.

3. Work From Home if You Can

 Working from home can help you to become better at juggling that work-life balance more effectively. 

 With commuting time cut to the length of time it takes to walk from your bed to your computer, you suddenly have an increased number of potentially productive hours during the day.

 If you can also manage to work flexible hours, you can also shift your working hours to accommodate the school run and after-school activities. ​

4. Look After Your Health

 It may sound obvious, but looking after your health is the key to being an exceptional parent as well as a great employee. 

 Make sure you are eating a balanced diet, sleeping for around 8 hours every night (admittedly this can be tricky with small children around!), and exercising regularly. 

 This will help to keep your energy levels up, build immunity against nasty illnesses, and keep your concentration on point.

 Exercising regularly will also help you to keep up with your energetic children during playtime! You can use exercise bikes like the Peloton to get into your daily exercise routine with ease.
