Ever since she was itty bitty Amber has loved to help me with laundry. From the time she was about 18 months old I would let her “help” me by pulling the dry clothes out of the dryer or putting wet clothes into it. As […]

We have two UPrinting canvases and they are among my *favorite* pieces of art that we own! They do an excellent job of Canvas printing! The first is a stretched canvas of one of my favorite places in the world–Boulder Lake in Wyoming. The next is a gorgeous picture of Bob on a Coast Guard boat. It’s a rolled canvas. I love the way having it printed on canvas made the water and the lights look! I know that you’ll love their canvases as much as we have–and am thrilled to be able to do a giveaway of one!

Just in case you didn’t know–I was homeschooled from 6th grade until I graduated. And then I *somehow* managed to get a college degree, marry an amazing man, and have a productive and extremely happy life working from home! 🙂 Anyways I *LOVED* this video […]
I absolutely adore reviewing books. I have always been an avid reader–ever since I learned how to read. Ever since I started reviewing books for my blog and on sites like Amazon I’ve enjoyed getting to read a variety of my favorite kinds of book. Many of the time these books are “good reads” but not worthy of gaining a permanent spot in our bookcases as I pass them along to friends/thrift stores/book stores. Every once in awhile a book comes along that is a diamond amongst semi precious stones. Die Young is one of these diamonds!
Such a short little book–just 7 chapters and 173 pages–but wow what great truths and convictions it holds! This book takes common Bible passages and really breaks them down and shows how they apply to your life–all based around the theme of dying to self and the paradoxes that it brings. Everything from knocking yourself off your high horse, to the sin of not having self control over things like food, to the wrong things with being a perfectionist are discussed. I was so convicted 75 pages in that I wrote this Moms of Faith devotional about the things that I learned and applied to my own life.
Such a great book–I’m now recommending it to all my friends and family offline as well as on. If you’re looking to grow, to stretch, and to learn how to find true happiness and contentment then this is a must read!
