Cold Fire: Safe, Easy, and Affordable Fire Prevention for Your Home

Just a few weeks ago, I stumbled upon a product that I thought was so amazing, I have to tell everyone about it!  It's called Cold Fire.  Let me tell you why I think this is such a great product.

Cold Fire is designed to extinguish small fires and instantly cool hot surfaces.

In my personal opinion, I think it is great for homes with kids and seniors.  It's just an aerosol spray can.  No pins!  That's initially what got me excited about it.  I know that my kids, ages 9 and 13, as well as my tiny 78-year-old mother, can pop the top off and spray the Cold Fire in case of an emergency.  In fact, I actually tested it (rather, my kids tested it) in the fire pit in our backyard.  We started a fire and each of my kids took turns spraying it before it was completely out.  Immediately after it was out, my older son (21) touched the wood and found it was cold.  Not even warm.  That impressed me!  Knowing that my kids can cook or be at home with their grandmother and have a simple fire extinguisher right there in their reach... one that they can use immediately, gives me a sense of peace when I'm not with them.

Not only that... but it can be used in so many other situations.  How about 4th of July when you have that bucket of water sitting next to you in case of a fire?  And Thanksgiving, when you want to deep fry your turkey?  Camping.  Boating.  Or take it in your car, just in case.  It's portable... you can take it anywhere!

The other product I bought is Fire Block, a fire retardant.  With Fire Block you can actually PREVENT fires. Another amazing product!  So many uses, but I really love the idea of using this on live Christmas trees.  How wonderful to help prevent the terrible fires that happen because of Christmas trees.  What a great way to keep the holidays safe.

Check out the demo for Fire Block...

Pretty cool, huh?  This demo was done at my home, on my coffee table, in my living room!  I saw how this product works up close and I already have my bottles of it sitting in my kitchen! :)

I have to give credit to my daughter.  She was excited about it first when she saw a demo by a friend and then told me how great she thought the product was.  So, when this friend came to our house for my daughter's get-together, she asked her if she had brought the Cold Fire with her.  Fortunately, she did and she was kind enough to do a demo for us at the end of the evening, which another of her friends so kindly made into the video above.  Great job!
Just so you know.... I wasn't asked to promote this product and I receive absolutely no compensation for my doing so.  I simply wanted to share what I, as a mom, have found to be a great product at a reasonable price.  No time like the present to be prepared! :)

Living in the Light/Dwelling in His Presence

Guest Post
by Rhonda Rhea
excerpt from Chapter 14 of:
How Many Lightbulbs Does It Take to Change a Person?
author photoI admit it, I’m a cruise fan. I love everything about it. Especially the food. A cruise and overeating go together like a hand in glove. Well more accurately, they go together like a size ten hand in a size two glove. All the gourmet food you can eat, for crying out loud! I guess I was just asking for a trip back to maternity pants. I now refer to myself as “17 years post-partum.” The staff on the ship said the average person gains seven to ten pounds on a seven-day cruise. But then, I’ve always considered myself an overachiever.
On prime rib night, my husband and I were walking out of the dining room and, even though he was about to let his belt out a notch, Richie said he was thinking of ordering yet another prime rib. Another one! I figured that could cost him at least another two belt notches. I told him I thought that would be a mistake.
Get it? Prime rib? “Mis-steak”?
Anytime we’re going to overdo, though, it’s good to make sure we’re “overdoing” in all the right areas. First Thessalonians 4:1 talks about living right to please God and then it says, “Now we ask you and urge you in the Lord Jesus to do this more and more.” To do and to overdo. It’s an encouragement to keep growing. Not so much growing in the “bring on the elastic waistbands” kind of growth. But growing in maturity.
We grow as we seek to stay in the light, dwelling in the presence of the Lord, making sure our lives are for Him and all about Him. Our growth is not an option. It’s a command. Verse 7 in that same passage in 1 Thessalonians says, “For God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life. Therefore, anyone who rejects this instruction does not reject a human being but God, the very God who gives you his Holy Spirit.”
Rejecting His instruction? Rejecting the Father Himself? Mistake of the highest order.
Growing in Him and dwelling in His presence results in a life in which growing “a notch or two” spiritually is a regular happening. The good kind of growth. And seeking that consistency in growth diligently.
There’s a lot at stake. Sometimes also a lot at steak.

Rhonda Rhea is a radio personality, humor columnist, conference/event speaker and author of eight books, including I’m Dreaming of Some White Chocolate, High Heels in High Places, and her newest, How Many Lightbulbs Does It Take to Change a Person?

Rhonda is a pastor’s wife and mother of five mostly grown children. She chuckles through the hubbub with pastor/hubby, Richie Rhea, near St. Louis in Troy, Missouri.
Book Cover Photo About Rhonda's Latest Book:
How Many Lightbulbs Does It Take to Change a Person?—Bright Ideas for Delightful Transformation (New Hope Publishers, 2012). Author and speaker, Patsy Clairmont, calls the book “high voltage humor along with a biblical charge.”
In Ephesians 1:18, Paul prays, “that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened.” One version calls it “light” that will “flood your hearts.” God shines so much of His light through Scripture so that we can see—we can have understanding.
For every person longing for a change, for everyone who is getting weary in a grisly struggle to make a particular change, God-given enlightenment makes possible real change in every way. Lasting change.
The God who is powerful enough to create light, then create the sun—the God who keeps the sun blazing and the stars and moon reflecting—that same God is powerful enough, caring enough, and detail-minded enough to light our way. He wants to show us the path of change, and He longs to light the way for us in His magnificent plan for our lives.
How Many Lightbulbs Does It Take to Change a Person is a laugh-along-the-way journey into that light through God’s Word. His Word? Now there’s some enlightening! And I hear enlightening has even been known to strike twice in the same place.
Thanks for reading and God bless! :)
