1. Focused 15 Bible Study

My dear online & in-real-life friend Katie Orr just released a great Bible study series called “Focused 15”. This 4-week study is on 1 Corinthians 13. The science nerd in me loves her use of microscope terminology to define the Bible study techniques used each day.

The best part about this study (beside the affordability…only $3.99) is in only 15 minutes a day you can connect with God, learn from His Word, & learn how to study the Bible on your own. Katie makes studying the Bible simple yet deep. I’m excited about digging into 1 Corinthians 13 as I have noticed lately my actions are lacking Godly love (“resounding gong…”). Check it out at: Focused15.com.

2. Daddy Homecoming CelebrationsĀ 

There is nothing better than looking at the clock & realizing “Daddy” is going to be home any minute. If it’s a nice day I typically tell the boys “daddy’s going to be home soon. Let’s go outside and greet him!”. Once he pulls through the gate, they wait for the car to stop then ask if they can go inside. Immediately they open the sun roof & request for him to play the Muse song, “Uprising” (the only way to play that song is “loudly”).

Definitely a favorite memory…

3. Cup Telephone

Need a quick & easy activity for your kids? Grab two plastic cups and some string/yarn. Poke holes in the bottom of the cups, thread the string through, secure with tape. Voila! You have a telephone. Great way to teach how sound travels in waves. Also have a conversation about how easy it is to talk with God.

4. Herb Garden

For my birthday, instead of sending flowers, my sweet husband sent me a herb garden in a wooden box. LOVE IT! Have always wanted to grow herbs & here they are. Now I only need to do 2 things: 1) Remember to water them 2) Figure out which herbs these are…any guesses?

5. Framed Earring Holder

My thoughtful sister-in-law made me the cutest holder for my growing earring collection. I just love it & had to share it with you. It’s a spray painted picture frame. Then on the back she stapled a piece of screen (from a hardware store). Cute & functional!

6. Baby & a Necktie

No words needed for this one. =)

What were some of your favorites this week?
