Yesterday (Saturday) my husband and I ran in a 5K to support our local Pregnancy Care Center. God has used this center to help thousands of women through the journey of pregnancy and beyond.
I crossed the finish line knowing this race was never about me in the first place. Thank you God.Hebrews 12:1 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.
I’m having so much fun in “blog world”! I want to celebrate by hosting my first giveaway 🙂 Yay!!!
All you need to do is leave a comment to let me know you’re alive and well. Say “hi”, introduce yourself, maybe share a cleaning tip…whatever :)…you get the drift……I’d love it if you spread the word. Shoot, if this one goes well I’d love to do more! If you don’t have a blog please leave a way for me to contact you. Thanks!
I will choose a name next week Thursday, June 4. So you have till then to enter.
So…….this is what I’m giving away 🙂
A handcrafted (by yours truly) ‘Great is Thy Faithfulness’ Clipboard.
I have made these for gifts and also have them in our School Room which you can see Here. So, I think that’s it….Happy Commenting 🙂
We are a family of avid readers! Bring on the books!! When Deanie (my oldest) turned 7 I was having a hard time finding books that were challenging enough yet still age appropriate for a young girl. (I’m just not into Junie B. and Magic Treehouse) She is now 8 and Dancy is 6. We have found some delightful series that the girls and I would like to share:
My girls are actually pictured with the author (Wanda Brunstetter) on this homepage! She lovingly makes herself readily available with lots of booksigning locations.
This series is for both boys and girls. My oldest received this set as a Christmas gift and proceeded to devour one book after the other! 🙂 They are GOOD mysteries that really do leave the young reader “figuring it out” untill the very end! Thank you Stephen and Susie! *side note* the site that I ordered these books are from (grace and truth books) is a fabulous resource.
Besides being pink and hardcover and looking so cute on the shelf :)….this series continues to be a favorite. These stories are set in the 1840’s and as you follow 8 year old Elsie through her life, lessons that run true are taught. *another side note: I also love Vision Forum as a resource!*
So these have all passed my Motherly “appropriateness” test and have brought much joy to my girls and will forever be a part of our family library!!
Do you have any of these? Or other books that you love for young readers? Do share!! 🙂
Ahhh…the joy of finding a good deal, the thrill of the hunt, I’m not sure what it is exactly about garage sales but I LOVE them!!! My children have joined in on the fun too which makes the thrifting so much more enjoyable for me.
I had fun layering it with some cute fabric….this was done by hand, usually in the evenings after the kiddos were in bed
