You, your spouse and depending on the age of your kids probably have a smartphone and tablet to call your own.  If this is the case, you need a portable battery/back-up power supply for your devices.  We have a great one for you.


The ‘puku charger’ is the ultimate power bank.  It is 8000mAh chargers that provides 27 hours of talk time, 153 hours of media play (great for those long roadtrips with the kids) and wait for it…900 hours of standby time.  My absolute favorite feature of the ‘puku charger’ is its ability to charge two devices at once and one of those devices can be a tablet.  Every house (if not parent), should have a ‘puku charger.’  Available in 6 fabulous colors, the ‘puku charger’ retails for $99.00.  A 12000 mAh version is also available for $129.00. Stay charged!  You can pre-order (Jan. 2015 delivery) from  www.gotpuku.com and choose from one of the hot colors.

What Happens When You Miss Your Cruise?

What happens when you miss your cruise?

Earlier this year we hosted our very first marriage cruise. The 2014 BMWK Marriage Cruise was an awesome mix of marriage education, fun and connecting with like-minded couples. But during the cruise we also found out what happens when you miss your cruise.

Now, this didn’t happen to us, but it did happen to one of our couples. And it could have easily been us since my wife Ronnie had to have an emergency surgery right after we returned.

Could you imagine planning for a trip for almost an entire year then not being able to take it?

Could you imagine paying for a trip for almost an entire year and not being able to get your money back?

I never really thought about travel insurance. When our travel agent recommended that everyone purchase it, I just assumed it was an extra fee for something that you would never need or use. Boy was I wrong!

Our couple that was unable to board the ship could have been saved by travel insurance. Or, if Ronnie had needed surgery before our trip we would have been covered by trip cancellation and interruption through our travel insurance coverage.

So you may be thinking, I would never miss something as big as a cruise, but believe me it happens. Or what if something happens to your luggage, like the time we cruised and the bag handlers dropped a bunch of bags overboard while they were placing them on the ship.

Things happen and it’s best to be prepared when they do.

At times like this, that’s when you need coverage from a company like Protect Your Bubble. Protect Your Bubble is focused on protecting what matters most to you and your family. Through their travel insurance coverage you can receive protection for certain unexpected travel problems. You’ll have 24/7 on demand medical services, emergency and concierge services, and trip cancelation, interruption and travel delay coverage.

And not only can they assist with travel insurance but also issues like protecting your mobile device or tablet from water damage or cracked screens, rental car insurance or ID theft protection.

Don’t wait until it’s too late and you have a case of the what ifs! Get covered today to make sure you get the protection that you need when life happens.

Protect Your Bubble makes it easy to protect the things that matter most to you, with easy to use services, to personal care when you need it most. Visit ProtectYourBubble.com to learn more and protect what matters most to you!
