5 Amazing things about Wisdomantics

Meet John Paul Norton. He is one of the 5 amazing people in my life. John Paul is a teen. He loves his horse Jocq and dog Ranger. He is a great older brother to Nolan. He is an active volunteer for disaster relief non-profit Activation ReACT. When wisdomantics reached out to us to see if he would be interested in writing a series of posts on their new app I was a bit apprehensive. John Paul is not a gamer kid but after he downloaded the game that combines fun, strategy, and memorization he was hooked. We will discuss my own views on the app soon. For now here is what John Paul has to say about the game that might just make him a gamer just like his brother, Nolan.

In full disclosure: John Paul was selected to be an ambassador of Wisdomantics.  He is delighted to learn and share info with you about this app over the summer.

Hi, I’m John Paul Norton. I am here to talk about Wisdomantics. Wisdomantics is a great game where the player guesses Bible verses and has to try to build King Solomons’s temple. I thought Wisdomantics was a really fun game. I really think this is a great game to play with family and friends. Here are 5 Amazing things about Wisdomantics:

  • 1. Wisdomantics has solo play mode. I recommend this for beginners. It is a very challenging but,fun game ,so the player is going to need a lot of practice. I am not much of a gamer, but this is a wonderful game.
  • 2. Wisdomantics has the ability to play with friends on Facebook and Apple Game Center. The player will need accounts to use both of those applications. But it is worth it all in the end to play with the player’s friends.
  • 3. Wisdomantics teaches Bible verses. If the player never learned verses, now would be a great time with this fun game. Wisdomantics is an excellent way to learn wisdom. My favorite verse in the game is Proverbs 17:27 “He who has knowledge spares his words,a man of understanding is of calm spirit.”
  • 4. Wisdomantics teaches strategy. In order to win, the player tries to collect tiles to build the temple. One tip is to trade blessing cards for tiles. I like strategic games, I think they are fun ways to keep your brain sharp.
  • 5. Wisdomantics has Pass n’ play mode. If the player has a group of less than four people you can play a game on one device. A great thing to do when you have spare time, like if the players are traveling in a long car ride.


I am still learning how to play this game.  More information to come and you can learn with me.  Soon, I will be playing with my friends through Facebook connect and game center.  I am excited to become the reigning champion of Wisdomantics

5 Amazing Things about Harrison Ford

Sup. So Hey, Nolan here. I think you should know these facts about Harrison Ford because  he is awesome and he did some amazing things like flying a plane and he did fly a plane for an emergency. Here is some 5 Amazing Things about Harrison Ford.

  1. The first amazing thing could also be my opinion. He was in two of the greatest films ever, Star wars and Indiana Jones. Star wars is the best. Harrison Ford did Star Wars before he did Indiana Jones.





2. Harrison ford was a boy scout. He got the second highest rank. My brother was a boy scout. I was a lion cub.



3. He was in Cowboys and Aliens. He played a cattle man it must been cool to play that role. Ive bin with horses but not cows. Maybe i can watch Cowboys and Aliens.



4. He was in Air Force One . I  just watched that it was one of the best movies I HAVE EVER SEEN!. We need a president like Harrison Ford. I think it was funny because he said that he flown planes and he really did fly planes.



5. It seem like hes a good guy in every movie. I just read the plot line for Patriot Games good guy in that. I think this guy should be President for real. In Blade Runner he was a cop. He was in Apocalypse Now as a colonel.














1.He is the co-creator of Lost. I never seen Lost wonder if my mom will let me. it’s about people who survive a plane crash on a island I like shows where people have to survive.

2. J.J. Abrams is the director of Mission Impossible. That’s one of the best movies I’ve ever watched. If you’ve never watched it I suggest you should go watch it after your done reading.


3. He wrote his own book called S. Amazon says it is a best seller in mashup fiction.
Man I hope after I post this article my mom will make me read this.

4. His dad was in the television business. My family is the same thing just with law enforcement. I would like to make movie one day at least I’ll still try.

5. He did the screen-play for Armageddon. I didn’t like Armageddon. As much as Mission impossible. My favorite part is when they blow up the meteor

5 Interesting Things about Mascara

If I had to pick a favorite type of makeup I would say that it is mascara. It is not like I wear mascara daily or even every week. I like a natural face……. but if I was hypothetically stranded on an island and could have one thing from my purse, that would probably be it! Seriously! I have horrible eyelashes but my husband has beautiful eyelashes and so do ALL of my kids. It makes a mom want to fit in, ya know? I am still looking for the “right” kind of mascara for me but in the search for that……. I have learned some interesting, gross, and amazing things about mascara. So let me share……

  • 1. The stuff has to come off. Are you too tired after a night out on the town to wash your face or remove your makeup? It has to come off. Evidently, leaving it on can make my eyes go bald. Evidently, when the mascara dries overnight, it can cause your lashes to fall out. Wtheckkkkk????? Yo! The ingredients can create stiff lashes which I might inadvertently itch in my sleep putting myself in danger of scratching my corneas and loosing lashes………Ok, so I can’t be lazy after a wild night clubbing in my 30’s! Got it! I don’t want bald eyes! I want lashes for days. Lesson #1
  • 2. You can moisturize your lashes! ……..Just like you can moisturize your face. Before bed, agawhen you are the most tired and all you want is to close your eyes, it is recommended by some to keep an old mascara brush dip it in olive oil and keep your lashes hydrated. Oil in your eyes suck so if you decide to do this, just be careful. Lavender is also suggested by some to be used on a brush and then applied to the eye.
  • 3. Apply mascara using a plastic spoon. For real this is not a joke. This is supposed to reduce smudging. You may look ridiculous doing this but according to my teen this isn’t a stretch for me. Applying your mascara in this way can actually help you avoid getting your eyelids to get mascara on them. I wonder if it will help curl my eyelashes too? Does anyone know the answer to this question? 

  • 4. So, evidently clear mascara has a purpose! Color me dumb! 🙂 Clear mascara coats lashes with clear mascara after an application to give a more polished and finished look. This will helps to seal the deal with your lashes, protect the mascara running, and if I have a mental breakdown and end up in tears it is supposed to make me not look like crazy psycho Taylor Swift.


  • 5. Mascara was invented by a man. Ummmmmm not sure what to say here. Does that surprise anyone? Eugéne Rimmel, a French perfumer and cosmetics inventor, created the first mascara in the 1830s. Talk about leaving a legacy. This mans last name, “rimmel”, translates to the word “mascara” in French, Portuguese, Romanian, Turkish, and Arabic.

     High Five Dude!!! Even if you are dead that is quite an accomplishment.


Some other things that are gross and not as amazing. Mascara expires every 3 months. Nasty Nasty fungus and bacterial things can happen in them too. If find this amazing read up. Evidently lots of people on the internet have a ton of things to say about gross mascara stuff that is NOT amazing.  

What kind of Mascara do y’all use?………. Because, I have an anxiety attack in the makeup isle. There has to be a moderate priced somewhat healthy bacteria free tube of lash friendly mascara out there for me. Is there moisturizing kind? I have so many questions about something so trivial. #firstworldproblems (but seriously if you know of an amazing brand tell me below)
