Cougar Crest Trail Hiking in the Snow

Posted in Family, and Outdoor Adventures

I woke up to a beautiful, sunny Saturday morning. The windstorms had passed and left behind gorgeous weather. I look into the distance and see the snow-capped mountains. The snow-covered peaks of Big Bear were calling out to me. I finished up my outdoor chores and head in to let D know that it was time for a road trip to the mountains to do some hiking in the snow. Once D saw the mountains, he agreed that we needed to do a little hiking in the snowy mountains. We weren’t sure exactly what our destination would be once we…

Starting the Day with Crazy Faith Awakening Coffee

Posted in Reviews

Special thanks to Family Christian for providing a sample of the Crazy Faith Awakening Coffee. Mornings start early at our place. With winter approaching, I head out to feed the animals before the sun even thinks about making an appearance on the horizon.

It was the type of morning where you could feel the chill in your bones even if you were all bundled up. My day starts with feeding the animals and quickly switches to preparing…

Special thanks to the publisher for providing a copy of these books for review purposes. This post contains affiliate links. Taking a Look at Scripture Doodles by April Knight I find coloring to be very therapeutic, so combining a devotional with a coloring book makes complete sense to me. Scripture Doodle and Scripture Doodle God’s Promises are both six-week devotional books. Some devotionals have coloring pages while others have a place for your own doodles which makes these books a little different than some of the other coloring/devotional books. You have the opportunity to be a little more creative or…

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…
