When I was an Elementary School Teacher, I would do more reading in the summer. I rarely had time to do the things I loved, during the school year. After ten months of teaching, I loved including faith-building books that would restore and strengthen me in every way!
I still have the habit of including faith-building books for my summer reading list. These are books, written by modern-day authors, that reference and apply scripture to daily living. They can be in the form of a personal testimony (in which the author shares his/her life experience and how God’s word has made a positive impact). Or, they can be a commentary type of study that explains scripture in a way that is applicable and relevant to today’s times.
Last week, I shared how I gave a men’s watch (gifted to me, by JORD) to Scott, for Father’s Day. I figured I’d create a Father’s Day Gift Guide, so that I could share a few more ideas. Hopefully, it will help you in finding the perfect Father’s Day Gift for that special dad in your life.
I wanted to get the perfect Father’s Day gift, for Scott, this year. There are many reasons for this. As you know, Scott is a foster daddy. He and I have been fostering babies for a few years, now. It takes a very special man to love a child enough to foster, over having his own biological child. I know gifts are not necessary, but when I was invited to collaborate with JORD, it was a no-brainer for me to have Scott select a men’s watch, by JORD, for an early Father’s Day gift.
Ah, the warm and sunny weather has finally arrived! Now, it’s not so hard to believe Memorial Day is around the corner! What are your plans? Scott and I hope to make it down to the shore, at least one day. I also may be doing a little shopping to take advantage of the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale! I already have my eye on a few pieces. Mainly summer rompers and jumpsuits!!
Every once in a while, I’m asked about my skin regime. Aside from genetics, there are ways we can take care of our skin. From avoiding sun exposure, to regular facials, and using quality products. (Not meaning expensive products!) In this post, I’ll share my favorite organic skincare and natural makeup products.
The Lord put this on my heart, today. I feel that someone can benefit from this post. Sometimes, we go through trials that test our faith. Other times, we feel overwhelmed with loss, grief, or despair. Perhaps, Mother’s Day is a time in which you struggle, because you lost your mom or a child. Maybe you are waiting to start a family, and feel that nothing is going your way. Or, maybe you do have what you thought you always wanted, and you’re still dealing with grief.
I’m writing this post to remind you, that no matter what you lose (or have lost) and no matter what you are longing for, there is something that can and will always be yours, no matter what your circumstances look like! Your Faith. Your Hope. Your Joy. (Ok, that’s a few things.)
