“This little light of mine…” – and now you’re singing!
Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. This year we tried to really focus on the reason for the season and celebrate the birth of Jesus, our Savior. Truly the best gift ever, right?
For our friends we made these solar light jars to help remind everyone to always let their light shine bright, even in the darkest times.
They were super easy to make since the solar lids already have the lights attached to them. Logan (5) really enjoyed putting the lights in the jars and screwing the tops on, and of course testing out the lights!
I used a paper punch and a hole punch to make the tags, some cute twine to tie them on and voila! Instant night light or light for the backyard.
Found the perfect sized jars at the grocery (best deal!), and the lids come in sets of 6 on Amazon* here: http://amzn.to/2DtnoOA
Go forth and make your own – such a great gift idea… and don’t forget to let YOUR light shine bright in 2018.
Blessings and Happy New Year!
Wouldn’t it be nice to find a really great devotional for kids that spoke to them at their level, and related everything they know about God to everything they know about science in a fun and engaging way?
(Read on to learn more, and you’ll have an opportunity to win one for yourself, too! )
I was recently given the opportunity to check out this new book, Indescribable: 100 Devotions About God & Science, and let me tell you, I was NOT disappointed. I love it, and the real audience (my crazy, geeky, science-loving boys) loves it even MORE. It has been such a blessing for us ever since it landed on our doorstep, and I want to share it with you so you can be blessed by it, too!
We’ve been reading it every night, and you know it’s good because they aren’t satisfied with just reading one devotional; we have to read and discuss at least 5, and they are always so bummed when it’s time to put the book down and go to bed!
First of all, it’s gorgeous — beautifully illustrated with bright colors, so eye-catching it is irresistible. Who wouldn’t want to open this book, it begs to be opened!
It’s even better on the inside. Each devotional is two pages, featuring scripture and a science topic that ties to that bit of scripture perfectly……
… filled with interesting facts and how it all relates to God and the reader. It ends with a lovely prayer to tie it all together.
Our favorite part is the “Be Amazed” section — from which I get a lot of “WHAT?!?” and “No Way!” responses when I read!
The author, Pastor Louie Giglio, invites kids to think about the questions they encounter in day-to-day life and to find God’s glory in creation.
Some of the topics covered:
This devotional is unique, engaging (so fun!), and beautifully designed — a must-have for any Christian family, and it would be a great addition to any Christian elementary school classroom, as well!

From the publisher:
It’s impossible to out-imagine God. He orchestrates time, creates light, and speaks things into existence—from the largest stars to the smallest starfish. God is a powerful, purposeful, personal, unparalleled Creator. Psalm 19:1 says, “The heavens tell the glory of God. And the skies announce what his hands have made.” Indescribable displays the majesty of creation with scientific findings, photography, and original illustrations.
Hope you enjoy as much as we do — it’s brilliant.
Blessings & Happy Holidays!

So saddened by the news coming out of Las Vegas. I’m praying for the victims, their families, for the people who were there and witnessed such horror, for the people watching the videos of this nonsensical violence that will be forever changed from it, for our country, for our WORLD.
There is SO MUCH GOING ON right now, people. It’s maddening!
Pray. LOVE. Pray. LOVE. Pray some more, and LOVE with all your heart. The world needs us.
I’m drawn to Romans 8:35 right now, my prayer warriors – read with me:
“Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? (As the Scriptures say, “For your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep.”) No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.
And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Let that sink in when you have fear in your heart, when you worry, when your faith fades.
I came across this today, and it rang true (I giggled, of course but it is 100% accurate). That’s why we call ourselves warriors. We are indeed going to battle.
Until next time (in which I promise to deliver something crafty -This mama is itching to get her craft on!) —
Peace and LOVE and Blessings,
It’s World Gratitude Day!
A reminder to be grateful — to give thanks for all that is good, show appreciation and reflect positively on life.
While I consider the many things I am grateful for (such as my husband, my kids, my family & friends, coffee, belly laughs and uninterrupted nap times), there is one that tops them all.
Grateful for His love, grace and sacrifice. Even in the darkest times, I believe and trust that He is with us and his plans are good.
What are you grateful for? Share with me!
p.s. Donuts. Definitely grateful for donuts.
