PJ Time

Every night after bath time, we fill up the milk cups and get cozy on the couch to read before tucking in and saying goodnight. The boys are clean, smelling of soap and bubbles, as they scooch in next to me on either side, each with a book in their hand, ready for tonight’s adventure.

Tonight Mommy picked a book, too–extra reading time for extra good sleep.

I love reading devotionals with these guys, it’s just the sweetest thing. To see their eyes light up, feel them snuggle in closer, and hear them respond to questions and say prayers out loud warms my heart to no end, knowing that they are growing in their relationship with Jesus.

Our latest book, PJ Time: 100 Devotions to Light Up the Night, is perfect for them; they are 5 and 8, full of curiosity and wonder, always wanting to learn more about how everything works.

The illustrations are fun and inviting for them, and the message is perfect for their young, growing hearts and minds.

From the publisher:

This delightful devotional for boys and girls ages 4-8 will give kids a fun way to close out the day. Each of the 100 bedtime devotions includes a fascinating topic that explores the wonders that happen at night: sleeping otters holding hands, the moon’s glow, multiplying bubbles at bath time, and saying good night to God. Paired with the devotions are simple prayer starters that will help children learn to talk to God about their specific triumphs, struggles, and questions. Each entry includes cheerful illustrations and a final reflection on how to act out Jesus’ love and truth. PJ Time is a wonderful way to help kids settle down in their favorite PJs, spend time with God, and fall asleep in His peace.

Snuggle up with your kids as they have fun, grow in their faith, and settle down for peaceful sleep knowing that God is always awake.

That One Thing

First of all, Happy New Year! It’s time to start fresh, let go of last year’s woes and get going on this year’s goals..

So, I have a goal that I think you might be interested in.. it’s kind of a big deal, and it involves some reading and some introspection, but I think it will be well worth it if you want to live your best life and honor the God that created you!

I recently was given an advanced copy of Jordan Raynor’s new book, Master of One, that concentrates on us discovering the one thing that we are truly gifted at, and focusing our efforts on that one thing to best honor and glorify our creator.

We’ve all heard that term, “jack of all trades but master of none,” right? I can COMPLETELY relate. You should know this if you follow me in any capacity; I’m all over the place but not truly exceptional at just one thing because my time is so divided. Well, this is where Raynor’s book speaks to me the most (and WHY God placed it in my lap — a total #godstop friends!).

This is so true! Have you ever been “in the moment” where you KNOW you’re doing something that He gifted you for? I’m telling you, I really enjoyed the book, I got so much out of it and I know where I’m being led by the Lord as a result of it. I think it can help you find your one thing, too!

To get you even more excited about it, there is an amazing sweepstakes you can enter if you pre-order the book. If you go to Jordan Raynor’s website and pre-order you can be entered to win a once in a lifetime trip to Europe that includes a Royal Caribbean cruise, a private tour of La Sagrada Familia, and dinner with the author himself (I’m really kind of hoping I win, but I’ll be happy for you if you do.. ;)).

So please friends, this year, let’s find that one thing God has given us the greatest gifting for, and let’s use it to honor and glorify Him. He deserves it, don’t you think?Share This! Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmail

A New Thing

I love Instagram as a creative space. Apart from my @stickelberry account I have another that I’ve used for a while to just be creative — with photography, interior design, graphic design, musics, scripture.. all the things I love.

It has been evolving for a while now to be less about me and more about Him — the reason I create in the first place. It has a new look, a new name and a refreshed purpose.

If you like to be inspired by scripture, photography, worship and Christian music, and graphic design with a faithful flare, come follow and say hi every now and then @scriptedlight
