2014 My Favorite Things Giveaway!

**This giveaway has ended**

giveaway2

I’m joining with some of my favorite friends on the

internet to giveaway some of our favorite things!

 

I’m so excited about this.  I love giving away things to my friends, and these are just a few things that I love.  Maybe I’ll do an after Christmas giveaway too. We shall see.

Well, this was/is a big year for me.  I went through and am going through lots of things, and God just keeps on teaching and guiding me through all of it.  It’s been rough but good and I’ve been trying to find my so called “sea legs” back in the online writing world.

I found myself in a group of good friends.  A ‘mastermind’ group as some call it.  A group of women that support each other through their God given callings, love on one another and grow in friendship.  It’s amazing really and I encourage you to find your own group of friends to start one, or maybe you can find one to join.  These women are there when I have ideas, need encouragement and have become a great source of love.

Head on over to each of these gals blogs to find out more about them PLUS their own giveaways!

NOW for the Giveaway…..YAY!!

*Here are a few tips if you want to start up your own group:

  1. Don’t be afraid to ask some bloggers that you admire if they are interested in joining you in a mastermind group.
  2. Keep it small and encourage and learn from one another.
  3. Listen to this podcast with Kat Lee & Trina Holden: How to Start & Run a Mastermind Group
  4. Read this post by Amy Lynn Andrews: Why You Should be in a Mastermind Group

Why YOUR Words Matter

Several years ago I jumped onto the ‘word of the year’ bandwagon.  I loved the idea of choosing a word to represent my year.  Something to either define what I needed or wanted for myself and possibly something I just needed to hear.  Especially since I’m such a visual person this seemed like a great idea.

I’ve chosen the words:

Embrace

Strength

Brave.

Each year, I’ve discovered that I had prayed and chose that word, but by the end of the year God had given me that word because he knew exactly why and when I needed it.  It’s been amazing to look back and see that.

I surround myself with words of scripture on the walls of my home to remind me of the God who takes care of me, who loves me and who always loves me no matter what.

Because when life throws curve balls at you, it’s hard for me to always stay positive and to remember those things.  Those words aren’t so easy to remember in the hard times, and physical reminders are a great way to keep yourself going or to even promote that positivity through words in your home.

Then at a conference I attended this past summer I found out about this new beautiful decoration from Dayspring and (in)courage.  It’s the #wordsmatter line.  And since I love wood, decor and expressing yourself these caught my attention right away.

First I love that you can either use all the same font or mix up the fonts.  So awesome for creatives like me.  Plus I can either hang it on the wall or put it on a shelf or lean it against the wall.  I love that too since I tend to move things in my living room around a lot.

So, what’s your word? Or what’s a verse you would love to put in your house?  You can go Here on the website and play around with the letters/fonts and designs to make what you want and see what it looks like.  SO fun!

Quick Update & blog stuff

me

This is me lately.  Just chillin’ and trying to take life one day at a time.  We’ve had a lot of changes going on lately here on the home front so my main goal has just been taking it slow.

I’m processing a lot mentally about what’s going on here at the blog(or what’s NOT going on).   So when I do write, I want it to be from my heart and to mean it.  So I don’t just want to post vomit words here.  Make sense? Hope you’re kosher with that and you’ll stick around to see some changes I’m trying to implement soon.

Thanks for sticking with me while I’m takin’ a chill pill and Hope to see ya soon!q
