Thanks for the tip. I retired last year, and now that I am home 24/7, my house looks like it should be an episode on Hoarders (well, okay maybe not that bad). Starting the 31 day, 500 word per day challenge brought that stressor in my life right to the forefront. Maybe writing it down will equate to action which will get everything organized. God Bless, and thanks for the tip!

I'm usually a very organized person, a planner.

This holiday season, though, has been complete chaos in that regard. It seems like Christmas sort of snuck up on me, and I found myself scrambling to get things done. Even worse, I had an awful scrooge-like attitude going into the season. Probably because I felt the no-plan, only-3-weeks-left, stress.

I don't like how I've approached Christmas this year, or my poor attitude. It should not feel like just another obligation.

With proper planning throughout the year, there should be no reason why I can't be Christmas-Ready before Thanksgiving so I can relax and enjoy the holidays with the people I love. More importantly, so I can focus my heart and attention on the reason we celebrate Christmas - the birth of our Savior!

It all starts with a plan.

Here's my Christmas-Ready plan for 2015. Yes, I'm starting as early as January (perhaps even a week sooner to capture great sales on Christmas decor). Feel free to use this for yourself, and make adjustments to it as you need to.

For those of you looking to start 2015 off growing in your faith, I've created this FREE resource for you. Check it out! 😊
You may recall around this time last year I published one of my very first blog posts on this site, 24 Bible Verses to Memorize and Study in 2014. Did you make it all the way through? I have to admit, I made it about halfway and then life sort of fell apart and got all crazy and I lost steam. I truly believe that any scripture study and memorization is valuable, so I'm taking it as a win anyway. And guess what? I've created a fresh new version fo...

Still looking for that perfect gift for your daughter? I've provided some ideas for you, grouped by age, all the way up to your young adult daughter. I hope this helps inspire the perfect gift! 
I have three daughters, ages 26, 9, and 6. This is a list based on what my husband and I have either already given our daughters in the past or plan to give them in the future. Hopefully some of these ideas will inspire the perfect gift for your daughter. To make things easier for you to scan, I've broken them down by age group.

I really loved reading this! 
I love Christmas. I love the lights, the music, the sweet treats, and the extra time spent with loved ones. It’s the time of year that snow is welcome and hot chocolate covers a multitude of sorrows. When the Christmas spirit hits me, I’m ready to jump in and enjoy the activities of the holiday. [...]

This weekend, my daughters and I spent two days dancing around our kitchen listening to Christmas music and baking Christmas goodies. It was super fun, but also super exhausting.

During a lunch break, I sat down with my girls at the table with a bowl of soup. Both of them had their noses in a book as they enjoyed their lunch. It was wonderfully quiet so I jumped at the opportunity for a moment of mindless relaxation - a game of Frozen Free Fall on my iPad. Perfect when I don't want to do anything requiring too much thought.

Three sips of chicken noodle soup and four game moves later, my 9-year-old looked at me and exclaimed, "Mom, we really need to find some good books for you to read! Something with adventure!"

I laughed at her comment, opened up my Kindle app, and began to scroll through 89 books on my device that I've either already read, recently started reading, or plan to read in the very near future.

Eighty-nine books, and my daughter wasn't the least bit impressed. In fact, she pointed out something very interesting to me that I hadn't really noticed before. Of 89 books, only 3 were actual novels (I haven't started yet). The rest are various self-help, how-to, or otherwise non-fiction books.


I have a problem, y'all.

I used to read novels all the time, but at some point in my life I stopped reading for pleasure. Why can't I just let myself get lost in a great story anymore?

Note to self: dive into some great novels in 2015!

In the meantime, here's what I have read this year - well, at least my top 12 most favorite books of the year.

I'm sharing my thoughts about Christmas and the calling of Motherhood over at the blog today. I hope you'll stop over to read. 😊
Friends, we may not be raising children who will grow up to have a powerfully significant mission like Jesus had, but God does have a plan for them. Not one of us knows how God will use our children for His purpose, but we can be sure He will use them, just as He's using each of us. Maybe you don't feel like God's using you for anything. I feel that way about myself sometimes. But then I see my kids and I realize how wrong I am. Look at your chil...

Don't miss out on entering to win your free hardback copy of The Hope Quotient. If not for you, perhaps a gift for someone you know? Very low entries right now and super easy to enter. :) Giveaway ends Friday, December 12th. 
They say you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover, but I totally did. A few weeks earlier I had conversed through email with a company asking me to read and review The Hope Quotient by Ray Johnston. I only knew what the book was about, but hadn't seen the cover. When it arrived, I opened the package, looked at the cover and nonchalantly set it aside to read...later.
