Thursday Thankfulness: Happy Thanksgiving!

Today I am thankful for many things.

I am thankful for my God and how He loves me no matter what I do, and is constantly rescuing me and wooing me back to Him.

I am thankful for my family and the joy that they are to me. My husband is truly a gift - a hard-worker with a big heart. And my children who love and accept foster children willingly into our home even when it completely turns their life upside down.

I am thankful for friends and extended family, some of whom we get to share the holiday with.

I am thankful for where we live and our community. Such a beautiful area with amazing creation all around us.

What are you thankful for today?

Wednesday What's New: The Colors of Fall

My son's last soccer game was on Saturday, and it was a whopping 28 degrees outside. Brrrr. After losing every game of the season, they had an amazing grand finale and won big. But more than winning, I wanted to make sure he had fun and did his best. He is happy with his season and loved his coach and felt like he learned a lot.

These earrings are new pieces I made recently, and I am so excited to share them with you. They reflect the beautiful colors of fall and the rich browns and oranges of the season.

I hope you enjoy. What are your favorite colors?

Monday Musings: Missional Living

This past week or two has been big for me. I am finding that God is stirring in my heart, and I want to learn more about who He is, and to seek Him with all my heart.

God is teaching me about areas of my sinfulness - pride being one of them - and my need for Him as my Savior every day and not just once. I can't find healing in meaningless activities, but only in Him. I have a lot of work to do, and am prayerfully asking for His help.

What new things have you been learning?
