WHAT MATTERS MORE IN MARRIAGE, THAN BEING RIGHT This morning as I was leaving for work, I backed out of my driveway and I drove right into my husband’s nearly-new car. I almost immediately burst into tears and as I walked out to see how bad the damage was, I knew immediately all the things my husband could say to me in the next few minutes. He could tell me I should have been more careful and he would have…

DOE'S GOD CARE WHAT WE WATCH? You Don't Have To Look Far To Find Scriptures In The Bible That Talk About What We Should And Should NOT Look At. God Cares About Everything That Influences Us, Whether That Is Through Our Eyes, Ears Or Mouth. What We Watch On Tv And The Music We Listen To All Impact Us On Some Level. The Bible Says “I Will Set No Wicked Thing Before Mine Eyes: I Hate The Work Of Them That Turn Aside; It Shall Not Cleave To Me.” - Psalms 101:3 From This Verse We Understand Two Things. One, We Should Look At NO WICKED Thing. Two, If We Follow That Principal, Evil Will Not Cleave To Us. With This Verse In Mind We Should Always Check To Make Sure A Tv Show, Movie, Video Game Or Anything We See Has Nothing Wicked Or Evil In It. Each Of Us Should Also Consider Going Through Our Own Personal Movie Collection And Evaluate What We're Allowing In Our Homes.

DIY HAND LETTERED SIGN FOR WAY LESS MONEY THAN BUYING THEM I have a confession. I am obsessed with using words in my home decor. Every room of my house has words, quotes, Scriptures, and notes. On the walls, on the mantles, above my bed, on the dresser.... I have, therefore, been *adoring* the big trend of hand-lettered canvas signs that seem to be everywhere. But if you haven't looked to see how much all those canvas signs cost, be…

It creates a story in which people all over the world can connect through mutual interests and topics. Because of this, hashtag popularity is always changing. I created a swipe file, which is essentially a download with over 500 current and upcoming hashtags for Instagram. You can easily copy and paste them all into a, not on your phone. They…

MODEST & FEMININE NAVY FLORAL OUTFIT My Favorite Thing About Getting Dressed Is Knowing All The Money I've Saved By Buying Thrifted Items. When You Shop At Thrift Stores To Add Pieces To Your Wardrobe You Can Often Find A One Of A Kind Or Vintage Item. In My Experience, These "finds" Have Been My Favorite Pieces To Wear. In This Look Below I Am Wearing A Navy Floral Skirt By "TRAC". The Brand Couldn't Be Found Online So Who Knows Where The Skirt Came From. It Is Super Comfortable Though. I Picked It Up For $5 At A Thrift Store. The Navy Pleated Collar Blouse I Found At ROSS For $12.The Red Knotted Kitten Heels Were A Steal At $5 (also Thrift Store). This Look Altogether Cost Me $22. As Always I Encourage You To Find Your Clothing At A Second-hand Store For Many Reasons. My Main Points Being: You Can Support A Small Local Business, Savings And Lower Cost For You, And The Last Because Currently, The Fashion Industry Is NOT Sustainable. The Trend Of "Fast Fashion" Where We Toss Out The Old And Quickly Buy The New To Be Seen As "Stylish", "On Point" Or "Trendy" Is Dangerous To The Environment.......

Love Really Is Spelled T-I-M-E. My Son Needs Me To Love Him More With My Time Than I Love My To-do List With My Time. My God Needs Me To Love My Husband And My Son More Than I Love My To-do List. It Requires A Little Sacrifice, But It's What Makes All The To-do's Matter To Our Lord In The Long Run.

CHILDREN SPELL LOVE, T-I-M-E My two-year-old son, Micah, is obsessed with cars right now. From the moment he wakes up (before his eyes even open), he starts asking for a truck or a car. The other night I heard him “vroom-ing” in his sleep. His heart is filled with a passion for cars. A few nights ago, I was researching for a study my husband and I are planning for our teens and Micah was playing with his cars. I…

BIRTHDAYS LEAD TO PONDERING With each passing birthday, I grow ever so conscious of the lessons that are shaping me into the person I am.

After recently turning 27, I pondered what I have learned thus far in life. This led to a rather messy list on two pages, which I…
