Gift for that wise person in your life – funny mug

Disclosure: I received this item free of charge. Opinions shared are mine.

Most of us know a person who is always right.  For you, it might be a family member or friend.  My person is my grandmother.  Though we weren’t really close until I was a teenager, she became almost like a mother to me.  Even now, we stay in close contact despite the hundreds of miles that separate us.  Every month, I send her a box filled with the books I reviewed. She loves to read, and then she shares the books with her church friends.  I’m so blessed to know this amazing, wise woman. [Read more…]

Share grace with the new (in)courage #CravingConnection line from DaySpring

I used to love to write encouraging cards and notes for people.  Over the years, it seemed obsolete, and I gradually stopped doing that.  Last night, one of our small group members commented that encouragement really means a lot to him.  It occurred to me that maybe God wants me to encourage others!  I love the song “I Wanna Live Like That” and it reminds me to be love.  That’s why I really like the Craving Connection (in)courage line from DaySpring. Share grace and encouragement with the message of connection!  [Read more…]

Display your memories on your wall

This is a beautiful river near our home. I took the kids there over the summer and we walked along the riverbank. What a fun afternoon we had! Do you display your memories of special moments like this?

Looking for something special for that person who’s so hard to please?  Do some social media sleuthing and have home decor made with a special vacation photo!  My friends post pictures of their families, vacations, and DIY creations all over social media. When we visit their home, though, they don’t have any prints of those special memories. After all, it takes time to print off images. A lovely acrylic or vibrant poster of a special moment is so simple to create with a few clicks of your mouse. Like the photo of my special river, those memories are clear in my mind but haven’t made it to my wall.  Wouldn’t it be lovely to give a friend such a personal gift?

The time my son used My Pure perfume as air freshener #FragranceOutlet #MyPure

The Fragrance Outlet #ad savingsinseconds.com

My son is a mama’s boy. He’s always been this way. Although he adores his daddy and practically worships his sister, there’s something different about the way he needs his mom. So when I caught him spraying the brand new bottle of My Pure perfume throughout the living room because he wanted it to smell like me, how could I be angry? [Read more…]

Bible Journaling made simple – just add color!

Bible Journaling Made Easy - just add color! Featured on savingsinseconds.com

I’ve always loved experimenting with different fonts and colors. When I was a teen and had pen pals, we would trade letters decorated with our latest creations.  It was something I actively practiced and enjoyed.  When Bible Journaling became a thing, it seemed like the perfect way for me to get back into the font fun.  The artistic skills that most people pinned, though, took time.  The HCSB Illustrator’s Notetaking Bible is the answer to my Bible Journaling wishlist.
