Watch the New AFFIRM Originals Series, "A Thousand Tomorrows" from Author Karen Kingsbury Only on Pure Flix -- New Episodes Releasing Every Friday! (Review) #AThousandTomorrowsMIN #MomentumInfluencerNetwork

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

The latest AFFIRM Originals show, “Karen Kingsbury’s A Thousand Tomorrows,” 

is a testament to love, devotion and making the most of every day.

Allie was born to ride. Even if it means putting her health in danger and even dying, she is willing to take that chance with her CF diagnosis if it means she can get back on her horse, Ace and compete in barrel racing on the Circuit. But, will her husband Cody support and back her desire to return to the circuit?  Episode six of this 6-episode series has Cody having doubts about her ability to ride again, as he just wants Allie to be reasonable and choose their love over the dangers of riding.  He knows she has riding in her blood, but hopes that their love is strong.  

"“Karen Kingsbury’s A Thousand Tomorrows” is a love story for the ages 

and shows real sacrifice and loyalty in the face of in-surmountable odds."

One day in the barn, Allie's dad tells Cody, "God has the length of our days; calling on our lives and once you believe that your faith grows roots; deep roots that will last."  Whenever the dad thinks about Allie, he reads Proverbs 3. He recommends that Cody look it up, as he tries to navigate the situation with Allie and her wanting to get back out there on the Circuit.  Later on, Cody picks up the Bible and reads this Proverb.

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. – Proverbs 3 (NIV)"

Shortly thereafter, Allie gets back on Ace and races, soon after Dr. Cleary calls Cody to tell her that her lungs are starting to show signs of the disease. Her 3 year life expectancy with her lung transplant is shortened by half if she doesn't get off the circuit and get inside taking in filter air. Dr. Cleary wants to see her soon -- but, can Cody get Allie to take her health issues seriously, or will her love of riding and need to fly with Ace jeopardize her health and her and Cody's time together?

"From #1 New York Times best-selling author Karen Kingsbury, only God knows how many tomorrows we have left. In the dangerous and competitive rodeo world, how will Cody and Ali make the most of their time together?"

Episode 6, just like the previous 5 will pull at your heartstrings, and have you glued to the screen to see what happens next.  I have been pulling for Allie since the first episode, and now more than ever I am praying that she gets healthy and stays healthy. But only time will tell, and only God knows how long Allie is meant to walk this Earth.  It is so hard to watch Cody dealing with the news, knowing just how much he loves Allie. His whole life is Allie, and without her, I don't know how he will go on.  As I watched this episode I found myself thinking back to when I was diagnosed with cancer and had to watch my husband and parents watch me go through treatments.  They prayed night and day for me to get healthy, and times when they didn't see me looking, I watched as they broke down just like Cody did, praying for a miracle and hoping that God was watching over me and would cure me, so that they would have more time with me.

Allie told Cody she wanted to really live and not let CF control her life.  I found myself not wanting my cancer diagnosis to rule my life and choose my length of life.  I knew if I put my faith in God, he would help me through this difficult time, which included radiation and chemotherapy.  There were a handful of times I was hospitalized and times when my doctors had to do more scans as they though the cancer had spread to my lungs and heart.I had to take each day and treatment, day by day, while still trying to live my life on my terms.  But, like Allie's dad told Cody, only God knows the length of our days. He knew even when I was in my darkest of days that there was more life to live.  And, now 15 years later I am here and thankful every day that God was watching over me and hearing not only my prayers for healing, but also the prayers of my husband and parents. Life is precious and I am so blessed I get more time with my those that I love.  As I watched this final episode of Karen Kingsbury's A Thousand Tomorrows which streams exclusively on Pure Flix, I was reminded of Proverb 3 and its message to trust in God with all your heart and know he will make your paths straight. I never gave up on God and kept his commandments in my heart each day I went in for treatment, and in the end, I am here today living my best life, with my husband and two beautiful girls by my side. Did Allie get the same chance at life?  You'll have to watch this and the previous episodes to find. 

"Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. – Deuteronomy 31:6 (NIV)"

Karen Kingsbury's A Thousands Tomorrows is a wonderful series to watch on Pure Flix, and will have your pulling out the Bible to read from it, to remind you that your trust in God will lend itself to deeper roots in your faith that will only grow if you just believe and have faith that God will lead you on the path of peace and prosperity for many years.  If you are looking for a great faith-based series to enjoy and haven't checked out Karen Kingsbury's A Thousands Tomorrows streaming exclusively on Pure Flix, I highly recommend you check it out.

Make Smart Financial Decisions: A Comprehensive Guide on Budgeting for a New House

The decision to purchase a new house is one of the most significant financial decisions you will ever make. So it's important to budget for this purchase in a way that ensures you are able to afford your monthly mortgage payment and other associated costs comfortably. This comprehensive guide will walk you through the process of budgeting for a new house and provide tips on how to save money upfront, as well as advice on what to do if you encounter unexpected expenses along the way. So whether you're in the market for your very first home or are considering upgrading, read on for helpful tips on how to make smart financial decisions when buying a new house!

1) Evaluate your finances

Before you start budgeting for a new house, it's essential to take a hard look at your finances. Start by calculating your net worth, which is the total of all your assets, such as savings, investments, and property, minus any outstanding debts like loans or credit cards. This will give you an idea of how much money you have available for a down payment on your new home.

Additionally, create a budget that takes into account your monthly income and expenses so that you can determine how much money you really can afford to spend on a home purchase. It's also important to consider any potential future expenses, such as college savings funds or retirement accounts, so that you don't overextend yourself financially. If needed, speak with a financial advisor to help you understand exactly where your money is going and develop a plan to save up for your dream home.

2) Understand the costs associated with buying a house

When you start budgeting for your new home, it's important to remember that there are more expenses involved than just the purchase price of the property. In addition to your monthly mortgage payment, other fees, such as closing costs and insurance premiums, can quickly add up. So make sure you factor those into your budget to ensure you have enough money saved up and don't run into any financial surprises during the home-buying process.

Additionally, consider any renovations or updates that may need to be made after you move in – these can range from painting walls, replacing flooring, or updating appliances. Finally, set aside some extra funds in case unexpected repairs are needed once you officially become a homeowner.

Lastly, the cost of moving your belongings from one home to the other is an important expense to consider. Hiring a cross country moving company or renting a truck can quickly add up and should be factored into your budget ahead of time.

3) Find ways to save

When budgeting for a new house, look for ways you can save money upfront. Shop around for the best mortgage rates and compare different lenders to find the most competitive rate. Additionally, consider applying for grants or tax credits that may help lower your monthly payments or give you access to additional funds as a first-time homebuyer.

Buying a new house is one of the biggest financial decisions you will ever make, but by following this comprehensive guide, you can make smart financial choices while budgeting for your dream home. Evaluate your finances, understand the costs associated with purchasing a property, and find ways to save money upfront. These tips will ensure you are able to afford the purchase of your new house comfortably.

Now Available to Own on DVD and Digital -- Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin: The Complete First Season - On Digital TODAY & DVD (Review) #PLLOriginalSin

Disclosure:  I was sent a screener from the folks at Warner Bros. Home Entertainment in exchange for an honest review. All views shared are mine and mine alone.

It’s Time to pAy for Their Sins,

Or tAke Them to Their GrAves

“A”vailable Now on Digital and DVD

Back when I was pregnant with my oldest daughter I found myself like so many people glued to the television each week to tune in and watch Pretty Little Liars on ABC Family.  This hit series originally aired in June 2010 and went on to offer season after season of binge worthy content. And, when the series concluded in June of 2017, you couldn't help but feel sad it the story finally came to an end.  Usually I don't get hooked on shows that easily and if I do, I don't last all seasons of its run. But, there was something about Pretty Little Liars that made me not want to stop watching.  I guess after all those years of watching long running series like 90210, Gossip Girl and Dawson's Creek, I was hoping for a new series to come out and pull me in and take me on a ride.  Whatever the reason, I was hooked and couldn't get enough of this series. And, to this day, I will watch reruns over and over again, even if they aren't going in order as the show was that good.  

When COVID hit and he were stuck at home, I found myself going through old DVDs in the basement and pulling out my collection of PPL complete seasons to introduce my daughters to this popular series.  And, as we started to finish up the series, I found out they were releasing a spin-off that would be called PPL: Original Sin.  Not only was I excited for this spin off, but so were my girls, who fell in love this drama.  They wondered if the spin off would have some of the old cast reprising their roles, and if it would be take place in the fictional town of Rosewood or not.  Then, June 2022 came and we sat and watched the first episode. We were introduced to a whole new cast of characters and a new town, Millwood. And, just like with the original PPL series, we were pulled in and eager to watch the next episode and so on and so forth until we were finished the first season and crossed our fingers a second season was in the works. This past fall HBO Max confirmed a second season, and now we are counting down the days until the first episode of the new season.  But, in the meantime, my girls and I are re-watching some of our favorite moments from this new spin-off HBO Max series, thanks to the release of the Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin: The Complete First Season, which is now available to stream on Digital, as well as own on DVD.  This recent season 1 release contains all ten 1-hour episodes, as well as bonus content.  

Even if you never saw or watched all the episodes from the original PPL series, you can still enjoy this new spin off.  It has the same feel as the original PPL drama, but updated with the times and with even more nail biting plots twists and turns.  If you are looking for a new series to get behind and binge as you wait for the second season to arrive, I highly recommend you check out Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin: The Complete First Season, now available on Digital and DVD from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.

Now, in the present day, a group of disparate teen girls — a brand-new set of Little Liars — find themselves tormented by an unknown Assailant and made to pay for the secret sin their parents committed two decades ago...as well as their own. In the dark, coming-of-age horror-tinged drama, we find ourselves miles away from Rosewood, but within the existing Pretty Little Liars universe — in a brand-new town, with a new generation of Little Liars.​"
