IPEMA and the Voice of Play want to promote #SummertimePlay

This post is sponsored by the Voice of Play.

As the school year come to the end and summertime approaches, 
kids will find themselves with much more free time on their hands.  

Televisions, computers and cell phones will taunt them to stay indoors, which is why 
International Play Equipment Manufacturers Association (IPEMA
and the Voice of Play want to promote activities and 
ideas that get kids  – and parents – outside.  

What better way to start the summer than by celebrating the beginning of 
summer with a trip to the local playground?
That's just what we did!



My children enjoy playing in the trees more than they like the swings and jungle gyms at the community playground. The playground gives them a chance to run around and waste energy. They can act like monkeys and wild animals! I don't have to worry about them breaking anything..lol The time at the playground is a great time for bonding because we can visit and chat without the distractions of the TV and video games.


The Voice of Play is an education and advocacy initiative of the non-profit 
membership association, IPEMA, formed to educate and promote the 
benefits of children’s free outdoor play and playgrounds.  
Through the Voice of Play website and social media properties, IPEMA highlights the scientifically proven physical, social, emotional and cognitive benefits of play.

JOY WILLIAMS - VENUS #JoyWilliams #O2O

JOY WILLIAMS - VENUS



Joy Elizabeth Williams initially planned on a career in journalism or family therapy. Instead, the California resident signed with Reunion Records at the age of 17 and released her debut project in 2001. Mixing elements of contemporary Christian music into an intimate form of pop music, she enjoyed a successful CCM career during the early 2000s, earning multiple nominations at the Dove Awards and selling over 250,000 copies of her first three albums. Williams eventually expanded beyond the sacred world, serving as a songwriter for Warner/Chappell Music and founding her own company, Sensibility Music, with husband Nate Yetton. 

There are 11 great songs on Joy Williams new album names Venus. My favorite is What a Good Woman Does!

Interesting sound, especially considering past endeavors. Still upset over the Civil Wars break up, but she still has a killer voice and really knows how to write. I have big hopes for her newly solo debut.

 I participated in the Joy WIlliams Venus album review program as a member of One2One Network. I was provided an album to review but all opinions are my own.
