Can I Get a Witness?

Just so you can get to know me a little better, I thought I would give you a peek into what our family does at least twice each week.

Every Sunday morning and Wednesday evening, rain or shine, we all pile into our van and head up to the church building with lots of other Christians. While we are there, we listen to prepared talks about God, His Son, His word, His works, and our part in all that.

Can I get a witness?

We also sing together with no instrumental accompaniment.

These are not rehearsed choir performances. Just songs announced by a single song leader and displayed on a screen that everyone can see.

The video was not planned. The singing wasn’t a performance. It was just a bunch of people praising God.

If you aren’t getting this kind of encouragement and giving praise to God on a weekly basis, I strongly recommend you get yourself to a good Bible believing church and join us!

Saying Goodbye to Our College Girl

We had to say goodbye to our college girl last week. It was something we had all been dreading the whole summer long.

(Since my husband took the group pic, we had to get him in separately.)

Though none of us wanted to see her leave,

Some of us were more emotional than others.

It’s always hard saying goodbye to our favorite people!

Essential Oils for Every Day {VIDEO}

Here’s a little video I did with my friend, Stacey, who first let me use her oils when my 4yo got severe 2nd degree burns.

We discuss in the video why we love our oils and how we use them every day. (Sorry for the wonky and wacky way I operated who is seen on the screen!)

If you would like to know how to get started with your own essential oils, find out more here.

Target For Back to College Basics {GIVEAWAY}

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Brita for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

It’s that time of year again. Time to get my college girl packed up to move back into the dorm.

Brita at Target

We headed to Target to pick up a few essentials, which I was thrilled to find were on sale! Since she likes to drink plain water to stay hydrated, I wanted to get her a water filtration pitcher, to keep in her dorm room.

I also got her a Brita® hard-sided water bottle available at Target to carry with her to classes.

Of course, we had to get a few other essentials, like Clorox Disinfecting Wipes and Burt’s Bees facial towelettes.

It’s thrilling and depressing all at the same time to send a kid off to college. If you have done it yourself, you know what I mean.

On the one hand you see your child as the adult they are growing into.

Competent, confident, and ready to take the world by storm.

On the other hand, you see your child as the baby you were holding in your lap just the other day. I mean, I can distinctly remember scooping her up and reading about the three little kittens who lost their mittens.

And now, here she is not needing me to read anything to her anymore.

She can read it herself. She can buckle her own self in, and drive her own self right out of the driveway and down the road to her own life.

Sniff.

She’s not the small child who sits in my lap saying, “Read it again, Mama,” anymore.

But she’ll always be my little girl.

And now, for the fun part! A $25 Target card giveaway so you can pick up some Brita® back to college items for yourself!

Leave a comment below telling me what you would like to get if you win the Target gift card!

ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

ALS Ice bucket challenge

Have you heard of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge?

In an effort to spread awareness and raise funds for ALS research, people everywhere are participating in this creative way to invite friends to donate.

You can see who challenged me and which three people I passed that challenge on to in the above video. I was so glad to participate in this challenge and also donate in honor of my friend, Diane, who was recently diagnosed with ALS.

I hope this horrible disease will soon have a cure.

You can donate directly to ALS research here.
