Our first adventure in the camping was this month. We went up to our favorite get-a-way, Prince Galliztin State Park. We love just the quietness of it. It is the off-season though. Take a look at our video of our day away. We make pizza […]
Life . . . what comes to your mind when you hear that word?
- a lot to do
We focus so much on that 10% of negativity!
Here are a few suggestions I gave at Natalie’s Mother/Daughter Banquet when I was speaking there a few weeks ago.
L – Love God and His Word
Have a personal walk with the Lord. Yes, you should be in church and listening to the preacher preach every Sunday, but you need to hear from the Lord yourself. Have a plan and take action.
Psalm 119:11 Thy word have I hid I mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.
E- Establish Goals
Goals are a good thing!
1 Corinthians 9:25 – And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things.
You should have all kinds of goals:
- Home Improvements
“if you aim at nothing, you will hit it every time.” – Zig Ziglar
M – Motivate Yourse
- Vision Board
- Goal Sheets (Pinterest)
- Buy a new outfit in the size smaller
Galatians 4:18- But it is good to be zealously affected always in a good thing, and not only when I am present with you.
2 Timothy 2:26 – And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.
O – Order In the Home
Proverbs 14:1 – Every wise woman buildeth her house: but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands.
“Build” – Increase and strengthen
1 Corinthians 14:40 – Let all things be done decently and in order.
It’s hard to be focused on goals when the home is cluttered and disorganized.
In the back of your
- start with one room at a time
- start with one drawer at a time
- cleaning schedule
- meal planning
- family schedule
Whatever is not working – FIX IT!
N – Narrow Priorities
- Personal Time
- Church Time
- Family Time
1 Corinthians 10:23 – All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not.
S – Serve Others
Hebrews 3:13 – But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.
There are people in your church who need encouragement.
There are people in your neighborhood who need encouragement.
There are people in your home who need encouragement.
Life is too hard and too short not to “Squeeze” the Day!
Hello friends! These past few months I’ve been updating my Master Bedroom. I videoed the entire process and am excited to share the final results! Here are the links mentioned in the video!

I have never done an Easter basket for my children yet and really I never received an Easter basket. We always had a big Easter egg hunt with all the cousins (and believe me, that was plenty! We didn’t miss an Easter basket.) This year though, I thought it might be nice to do something small now that Hannah and Leah are old enough to enjoy it! I didn’t want to do anything expensive or with a
This basket cost me $5! (not including the Easter pick) and everything is from the Dollar Tree!! They have TONS of Easter basket goodies and for only $1 it was hard to only pick 4 things! I already had the tissue paper on hand and the baskets were a perfect little size that 4 things were all I needed to fill it! The Easter pick is optional, but I thought it would add a cute touch!
It doesn’t always take a lot of money to do something special for you kids!
I tried to do these baskets up and take the pictures during the girls’ naps. Hannah woke up right as I was finishing up so these won’t be a surprise to her. She informed me “But, I CAN’T wait till Easter!!” So, I think they’ll like these baskets!
Spring is officially here! I do not often decorate for spring, but after our cold snow filled winter, IM EXCITED about Spring! I saw this DIY Craft the other day and had some ideas to improve and so I took the time and made this adorable bunny garland for Spring! I had almost everything I needed on hand and it only took about two hours, with AnnaLynn inturptions! So glad I took the time to make this and I’m excited to have it in my Spring home wardrobe! Here are the supplies you need! (You do not have to use song sheets! I think an old newspaper or colored paper would be just as cute!)
Start by finding a bunny pattern you like! I just googled and did my best to copy it from my phone, nothing too special! I traced around the pattern on the song sheets and cut them out.
Once you have them all cut out, you can laminate them. I chose to laminate so they would last forever, but you do not have to do that step. If you laminate, you can poke holes in the ears after you laminate. (I do not have a hole punch, so I just poked holes with my scissors.) Glue cotton balls on them for their tails and let them dry before you string the garland. I did cut my cotton balls in half, because I felt like they were bigger than the bunny was! But if decide to do a larger bunny the full size cotton ball will work great!
Now it’s time to string the garland up! This will take the most time, if you did not use a hole punch! If I do this again, I will purchase a hole punch to make the stringing process quicker and easier! But it worked and still turned out super cute!! Here is the end result!
Happy Spring! Comment below with a picture if you venture out and try the bunny garland!
