Finding Your Voice by Natalie Grant

Posted in Reviews

Finding Your Voice When I started to do what I loved to do, what God had created me to do — operating fully in my gifting — I began to understand more clearly God’s call on my life. ~ Natalie Grant I think we have all, at some point in our lives, wondered what the Lord wants for us, from us. What are we supposed to be doing with our lives? Should we take the easy path, the safe path? Should we follow our dreams or plant our feet firmly on the ground? As I watch my teenage daughter try to…

Praying through the Bible for your Kids

Posted in Christian Life, and Reviews

“Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.” ~ Proverbs 22:6 I started praying for our sweet girl before she was even born. As the years passed, the prayers continued, but the changed according to the stages of her life. Now, that she’s in college and approaching some difficult decisions about further education and a future career, I find myself, once again, praying in a different way. I also find myself praying that the Lord will bring the right people into her life to help her grow in…

It was a fun, enjoyable way to relax. I’m glad that others are now learning how relaxing coloring really can be for people of all ages.…

Posted in Christian Life, and Reviews

When sitting down to study scripture, it is important to understand the culture and customs during the time period when the Bible was originally written. As I read more in this Jewish Study Bible, I realize that my education in Jewish history and customs is lacking. I have studied some Jewish history and a minimal amount of Hebrew, but I’ve never really dug into it like I wanted. This study Bible is a nice starting point for those studies. While you can dive right into using the Bible, I found that I got more out of it by spending some…

Outdoor Living with prAna

Posted in Family, Outdoor Adventures, and Reviews

prAna sent me the Mantra pant and Ravena top for the purpose of writing this post. As soon as we had a break in the high summer temperatures, we knew that it was time to hit the trails and the boulders. D had a long weekend thanks to Labor Day, so while we did have some work that had to get done, our main focus was having some fun in the park. We decided that we’d split our time between climbing at the gym and hiking and climbing in the park. We’re fortunate to live in an area that is rich in…
