Firsthand by Ryan & Josh Shook I was blessed in that I spent virtually all my life growing up in church. Sunday morning, sunday night, church camp, youth group–you name it, I was there! And while this was a huge blessing for me, it also […]
Month: June 2013
Growing up I went to Red Cliff Bible Camp (north of Pinedale, Wyoming) nearly every single summer. Although I loved going there for the weekly youth camps my favorite was always going to Family Camp over the 4th of July each summer. The people, the views, the food, the services–they’re all amazing! Growing up a big focus was always on what outfits I would wear for the teen camps–so affordable fashi0n was a must!
So I am *super* excited about the 4th of July this year because I will, once again, get to spend it up at Red Cliff! I’m flying up to spend a few weeks in my beloved Wyoming with my family and to kick it off we’re headed up to camp in the wild wilderness–much to me and the kids delight!
Naturally to celebrate the occasion I needed a special outfit! So I headed over to Sears to find the perfect one and take advantage of their Shop Your Way program.
Have you re-pinned my main Organizing in Small Spaces post yet? If not go ahead and do that now–no really. I’ll wait. Each week I do a post I go back in and link to it in that post–so if you pin it you’ll have […]
If I seem to have gifts on the brain it’s probably because I do. You see, in our family July is THE month for birthdays. Hubby, Tyler, my sister, my niece, my grandma, me, and my soon-to-arrive nephew, and my childhood bestie are all July […]
It seems like there has been a rash of hard times and bad news popping up lately. It’s terrible when you hear wrenching news that you can do absolutely nothing about. The kind of news where you just don’t know if there is anything that you can do or say that could possibly help the situation and not just make it worse.
I like to think, however, that there is always something you can do–even if it’s just some very small act of kindness to let someone know that they are not alone. So lately when I’ve been hearing these things that make my heart sad I’ve been trying to reach out in love with a “Thinking of You” Gift!
Have you noticed that classic toys are making a huge comeback? Every time I turn around it seems that characters that I loved growing up like the Bernstain Bears are popping up with new toys and spin offs.
Personally I absolutely love it! It’s so fun to become reacquainted with “old friends” as an adult and seeing my kids fall in love with them. This special and unique connection can be encouraged and developed, so I thought I’d share some of my thoughts on how to help it flourish!
