Hand Lettering Scripture Printables

John12.24color_thumb

Lately, I’ve picked up the hobby of hand lettering and have been creating word art from scripture. I have found it to be a lot of fun, while also feeding my spirit! I love finding creative ways to meditate on God’s Word, and this has been really enjoyable, while also writing the Word upon my heart. Many of the scriptures that I’ve drawn out have been from the book of John, as I was reading and studying this book for {Read More}

One Year Pics of Eden

Hello Friends! Oh-my-word have I had zero time for blogging ever since I started back at work! It makes me so sad, as I have a list of about a dozen things I want to blog about, but so little time to do so. Working part-time from home with 3 kiddos is quite the undertaking, plus with the incredible amount of transition going on with Joe starting his new job at Sanctuary House of Prayer, it feels like there are {Read More}

5 Minute Friday: Again

5-minute-friday-1

I’m participating in 5 Minute Friday again, hosted by Lisa-Jo Baker – Tales from a Gypsy Mama where she gives us a word and then everyone writes about it for 5 minutes – no editing, no over thinking, no back tracking. This week’s word is “Again”… I have a headache this morning…again. My daughter is throwing a tantrum and I’m losing my patience…again. I’m folding and putting laundry away…again. There’s spit-up on the floor, dishes on the counter, weights on {Read More}

Together in Ten: Fun Jewelry

IMG_0880picmonk

I recently discovered a new fashion blog called Together in Ten: Great Style in a Snap, with fun ideas especially for moms who don’t often have a lot of time to create a well-put-together outfit. I’m enjoying some of the simple tips on the site and decided to join in the fun. I’m by no means a fashion maven and I’m not really in-the-know on the latest trends, but I love it when I’m able to create an ensemble that {Read More}

5 Minute Friday: Roots That Endure

I am again participating in 5 Minute Friday, hosted by Lisa-Jo Baker – Tales from a Gypsy Mama where she gives us a word and then everyone writes about it for 5 minutes. No editing. No over thinking. No back tracking. This week’s topic is…“Roots”. I recently watched a video showing footage of a massive tree being ravaged by Hurricane Sandy, so that its massive frame, roots and all, were torn from their home in the soil and thrown down {Read More}

5 Minute Friday: A Race Worth Running

5-minute-friday-1

This is my first time participating in 5 Minute Friday, hosted by Lisa-Jo Baker – Tales from a Gypsy Mama where she gives us a word and then everyone writes about it for 5 minutes – no editing, no over thinking, no back tracking. Yikes! As a bit of a perfectionist, this will be hard for me, but sometimes I just don’t write because it takes so much time and I have to analyze it and research things and it {Read More}

Happy 5 Months Eden

IMG_5967text

Well, my little man is 5 months old already! He weighed in at 15 lb. 3 oz. and is 26 inches long! He is bursting out of the little white onesie I keep trying to squeeze him into for these monthly pictures, so I may need to finally cave in and buy a bigger size soon. He’s totally fitting into his 6 month onesies and sleepers, yet his waist still doesn’t fit the 3-6 month pants! He’s long, but skinny {Read More}

A couple months ago we had new family photos taken by our friend Kristen Nicole and I LOVE how they turned out! She did a great job and it is my pleasure to share a few of my favorites with you.

Here are some newborn pictures I took a couple months ago of Eden. I never knew how hard it was to take pictures of a baby (especially all by yourself), but I’m really happy with how they turned out!

I’m linking up with OhAmanda’s Top Ten Tuesday again this week with a list of my top pins that I’ve added on Pinterest since I joined the site.
