Children’s Top 5 Pick of Bible Story Books

{Disclosure: This post may contain affiliate links, which means I may make a small commission at no extra cost to you!}

I am a firm believer that children are never too early to be exposed to books and reading! If you want your children to fall in love with reading you should be reading to them and let them have daily access to their books. Now, my children aren’t old enough to read yet, but they sure do love to be read to and look through their books when we aren’t reading together!

I want them to always love reading because that will eventually instill in them a love for learning. We should never stop learning, especially when it comes to the Word of God! You may read over the same scripture multiple times, at different times, and get something different from it each time! Read more

Here it is, the big surprise!

I am doing a giveaway in celebration of the blog turning 1 year old this month!

I am so excited and honored for what God has done through this blog, and I can’t wait to see what He has in store!

The rules for the giveaway are here on Facebook.

Well what are you giving away?

I’m glad you asked!

I got a 16oz Tervis cup with the blog logo on it, and a journal! (I also got a cup for myself, and I love it for my iced coffee!) The journal has Jeremaiah 29:11 on the front cover, and it would be great for a prayer journal, for sermon notes, bible study notes, to-do lists, whatever you want to use it for!

The giveaway will end August 17, and I will announce the winner on Facebook on the 18th.

I’m so excited about this, good luck!

 

What I have learned about Obedience

{Disclosure: This post may contain affiliate links, which means I may make a small commission at no extra cost to you!}

Now that I have children, I have learned a little about obedience. We as parents want the best for our children, and for whatever the reason, if we want or don’t want them to do something we expect them to do what we ask of them.

One thing that we forget sometimes is: we as the parent don’t owe our children an explanation of what we want them to do. We don’t have to explain every “why” they ask us. They don’t need to understand what is going on to be able to obey. Read more

How to Love the Lord

{Disclosure: This post may contain affiliate links, which means I may make a small commission at no extra cost to you!}

Throughout the bible we are told how important love is, and who we are to love. When we love truly and fully, we are fulfilling the commandments, “Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law” Romans 13:10. We are to love others like ourselves, we are to love truth and wisdom, it also says we are to love the Lord. Read more

Personal Independence Day

{Disclosure: This post may contain affiliate links, which means I may make a small commission at no extra cost to you!}

This past week we celebrated our nation’s Independence Day. Let us also not forget to celebrate our own personal independence. The day that Jesus set us free. “Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.” John 8:36 NKJV

Sometimes once we get used to something, we tend to take it for granted. We get so used to being free, that we forget what it’s like to be in bondage.  The heavy weight constantly on you, the worry, the lies that eat at you, feeling as though you cannot get back up. Read more

How I (don’t) Study the Bible (and how I plan to change that)

What has become my routine lately is, I will try to “squeeze” in my bible reading. (That should be a red flag right there).

My normal routine is I wake up at 4:25am with my husband as he gets ready for work. I make his breakfast and lunch. We enjoy our morning quiet time together, even if we both are half asleep. We say our goodbyes, and then I go lay back down. But first I pull out my phone to read my bible. I end up not reading much because I start falling asleep… Read more

Not Just Another Blog Post

{Disclosure: This post may contain affiliate links, which means I may make a small commission at no extra cost to you!}

So this isn’t going to be just another blog post.  There is nothing fancy or exciting, it is just making way for what is to come.  Sorry, no pretty pictures this time!

I have been thinking about this for awhile now, and I don’t want this blog to be a bunch of posts without us getting to know each other. And I am going to try to be more personal. I want to get to know you! (If you haven’t yet, follow me on Facebook, I post there everyday!). But I know that doesn’t happen without me first opening myself and being vulnerable. Read more

I hope these help you as much as they have me!  I will tell you of a few bibles that I have seen personally and have really enjoyed! Read more

Chocolate Peanut Butter Layered Cake!

Some may know February 28th as “National Pancake Day”, but I know it as my Birthday!!! 26. I can’t believe I am 26, that means I am now closer to 30 than 20! I know most of you cannot be here with me on my birthday, and that means I can’t share my birthday cake with you in person, but I still want to share it with you!!

This year I made my own cake, because I knew exactly what I wanted and how I wanted it. I was in the mood for chocolate-peanut butter! I quickly decided how I was going to do this: chocolate cake layered with chocolate icing and peanut butter, everything homemade of course. When it is homemade, it has less calories right? Read more
