    My “One Little Word” for 2021, Okay, It’s a Phrase

    Well, 2021 is here! And that means it is once again time for me to share my One Little Word for the year. I can’t believe I am in my ELEVENTH year of doing this. I have found picking a word (or words, or phrase) for the year so beneficial. I love setting goals and intentions but it can be hard to remember them throughout the year. Picking a word or phrase it a lot easier to remember and be thinking about throughout the year, at least it is for me (but, of course I’m setting goals for the year as well as choosing a word, the goals will be…

    How to Read Through the Bible in 90 Days or Less

    Last fall I randomly heard someone saying they were reading the Bible in 90 days. And, for whatever reason, I thought I can do that, I should do that! I have no idea why I thought that. I had never even successfully read through the Bible in an entire year before. That was approximately October 8th and I decided to read the Bible before the year was up, so it was a little less than 90 days. I found a reading schedule online and did some extra readings for the first few days so I could catch up and I ended up finishing the plan before the year was over. I…

    Different Ways to Set Up a Prayer Journal

    I’ve kept a prayer journal for a number of years though the exact layout/”system” I use has varied over time so I thought I would share a few different ways I’ve laid out my prayer journal. I find that writing down things I am praying for helps me to remember it. If a prayer request comes up I try to write it in my prayer journal as soon as I can otherwise I will forget it. I know many people don’t keep a prayer journal or list of things they are praying for, they must just have better memories than I do (it wouldn’t take much). Unfortunately, for those who…

    Monthly Scripture Writing Challenge: Love & Marriage

    Marriage is not a topic I have written a whole lot about, if you compare the amount of times I write about marriage versus the times I write about parenting you’ll see parenting is a much more written about topic. That’s not because I prefer parenting over marriage but because marriage has been quite easy compared to parenting and I guess I generally write about hard things (case in point). I thought I would change things up during the month of February and share a little about marriage, I currently have zero specific ideas on this so hopefully some come to me. But I am going to kick things off…

    Monthly Scripture Writing Challenge: Generosity

    I started the practice of trying to write a verse or few verses from the Bible back in July and it is a practice I want to try to continue in 2020. I haven’t been successful every day (especially this last month where I missed more days than I actually completed) but I want to keep trying. For the foreseeable future I plan on continuing to make my own monthly Scripture Writing Challenges. This month the theme is generosity. A topic I will be writing about more in the next little bit. I also have ideas for the next two months as well, February will probably be love and then for March I…

    Advent Resources for Families

    One of my goals for December is to put most of our emphasis on Advent and the Reason for the Christmas season. I asked on Instagram last week if my followers had any good Advent resources to share and I’ve been doing some research myself and I wanted to share some of the resources I came across. Many of these I have not used myself yet but they have been recommended by trusted sources or come from reputable sites so I feel confident in sharing them.     FOR THE FAMILY     JESUS STORYBOOK BIBLE READING PLAN This is so easy and one of the things I plan on…
