This post is about composting. What I have personally purchased, my experiences and what I would like to purchase next. Currently, I use #1 and #2 below. I recommend one, but I disdain the other. Well, that's a little harsh I guess.

1. Exaco Trading 160 Gallon Composter
2. Envirocycle
3. Lifetime Dual Compost Tumbler

#landscaping #composting #gardening  
After purchasing our home, one of the first purchases I made was a composter. I love the idea of what it does. Here is my run down on two that I own, their pros and cons and one that I am keeping my eye on.

The redemptive gifts are based on the passage in Romans 12:3-8. They are also called the motivational gifts, based on what motivates the person, and are often interpreted in the context of all of the spiritual gift passages in scripture.

I was definitely a bit skeptical of how far some of these redemptive gift interpretations went, since they are only based primarily off of a small passage of scripture.

So without further ado, The seven motivational gifts:

1. Prophet
2. Servant
3. Teacher
4. Exhorter
5. Giver
6. Ruler
7. Mercy

  #faith   #gifts  
I first heard about the redemptive gifts while I was living in Qatar and attending a wonderful church.  A couple visiting from South Africa began to teach the audience about them, and how they can help you carry out the call on your life.  They went on to explain how the title was meant to convey how a Christian connects with their Redeemer.
