A Q+A with Beth

Hey y’all!  My friend Beth has agreed to join me today for a fun Q+A!  This has been in the works for a few weeks now, and I’m excited to be able to share it with you all today.  The Q+A consists mostly of random, fun questions that I asked Beth, but there are a few questions at the end that are more serious.  We hope you enjoy! :)

Psalm 7:17b

“…and will sing praise to the name of the LORD most high.” ~Psalm 7:17b

To My Mother...

Tomorrow is Mother’s Day: the day when we celebrate all of the awesome moms out there, and show our appreciation for all that they have done.  We give gifts and we give hugs.  We may even bring our mom breakfast in bed.  But really, we cannot even begin to show our appreciation for all that she has done for us!  She gave birth to us, comforted us when we had nightmares, made us all of our meals, and so much more.   I don’t think any of us will ever really understand how much our mothers’ have done until we are in her shoes.

Card Inspiration // Graduation 2017

Hey y’all!  So, I said a little while ago that I was looking forward to returning to my “card inspiration” posts.  And here, about 6 months later, I’m finally keeping my word :)  These cards have been waiting for about a year in my pictures folder, waiting for graduation season to finally arrive.  And now that it has, I figured that I’d better put them to use!  So, here’s some inspiration for you crafty girls who want to make some cards for your graduating friends.

2nd Blog-versary Q+A Answers!

Hey y’all!  It’s finally time to release my answers for my blog-versary Q+A!   I want to thank each of you girls that sent in questions; you gave me some great ones and I had tons of fun answering them!  I was also nervous about not getting very many questions, but y’all took care of that nicely :)  Thank you so, so much!  And without further ado, here are my answers! :)

Have you decided on a new blog name? :)
Do you like to listen to classical music at all? I like listening to classical music when I have some sort of connection to it (like I’ve heard it before, played it myself, etc.).  That’s when I really appreciate and understand the music.  But honestly, even though I like the idea of listening to classical music, I don’t do much of it.  That is something I hope to fix in the future though!
Do you all have any pets? We have 2 dogs, 4 cats, and a bunny.  We also have lots of chickens, but we don’t exactly consider them pets ;)
Do you like tea, coffee, or hot cocoa best? Definitely hot coc…

A Prince's Sacrifice

Once upon a time… a baby boy was born.  But he was no ordinary infant.  This baby boy was a prince!  It was true that he had no official title as a prince; he did not possess riches or a crown.  His birth was that of a pauper.  He was not born in a palace, surrounded by doting and attentive maid servants; rather, he was born in a stable, surrounded by animals.  It was hardly an adequate birth for a prince, but yet it was as it had been planned from the very beginning.  How many nights to come a humble pillow of hay must have seemed a great comfort to his weary head!

DIY // Wordless Book Bracelets

Hey y’all!  Are you familiar with the wordless book?  It’s a tool to use to present the gospel, particularly to young children.  It has five pages, each with a different color, and each color represents a different aspect of salvation.  Last year I was asked to make a bunch of wordless book bracelets for a VBS, and recently I was asked to make more for a children’s ministry.  They are extremely simple and easy to make, so today I would like to show you how!
