The Gifts of the Spirit / Why Most Churches Don't Teach & Activate Them

Do you ever feel like you are so different than the people you around you? Even though you don't look like you don't fit in, there is something deep inside of you that tells you that you aren't like anyone else? You feel more  deeply than others, get so called "vibes" from people, and dream crazy dreams that come to pass? Let me tell you, you really aren't alone!



Things I learned about bObsweep


Have you ever wondered what it's like to have a robotic vacuum? I always did. I had always wondered if it was pure magic or something too good to be true. I'm sure you're sitting there wondering the same exact thing! I knew I had to try one for myself self and see if it was worth it. I had always dreamed of getting one, pressing the button and walking away while it picked up all the little crumbs that my children left all around the house everyday. Not to mention pet hair too. After all that's what it seemed like you did with the thing. Could it make my life a little easier? Read my thoughts on bObsweep below!

Glittered Heart Wood Sign

Love is in the air! While January flew by right before our eyes, all of the cute heart shaped everything was being stocked onto the shelves even as early as Christmas time. Isn't that crazy!? Valentine's is one of my absolute favorite holidays. I know it's cheesy but I LOVE to give my kids a cute little pink and red stuffed animal which they play with for the rest of the year and a little heart shaped box of chocolates. I always try to make them feel special all the way down to my traditional heart shaped waffles! I really do go all out to make special memories for them. This year will be quite different though. We will be spending Valentine's day as a family in Ireland! Even though I haven't gotten their stuffed animal or box of chocolates to put in my luggage, I have added just a few little décor pieces in my home. Usually I make other cute décor every year but since I won't be home I kept it simple. This wooden glittered heart sign is SO easy to make! All you need is some wood slat, paint, glitter and a glue gun! The best thing about this is that you can make it in ANY colors to use in your kids room, office, bathroom ect!
