Love is a Verb

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Today is the perfect day to ask yourself, what is my definition of love? If you asked me this eight years ago when I first fell in love my answer would have been different than my answer today, however I have learned many lessons the past eight years. I’ve learned communication is key in any relationship, as well as, quality time, and making your spouse a top priority. Romantic relationships and marriages are not the product of each of you giving fifty percent. Both parties must give one hundred percent. Most importantly, love is a physical task, not a simple emotion.

Love is a verb, not a noun

My blog today is written by Jeremy and Audrey Roloff from Beating 50 Percent. Take a look at their thoughts revolving around the biblical meaning of love. I couldn’t agree more!

DIY Valentine Coupon’s

A coupon book is far from a one of a kind gift, which is why I’ve never made one until now. Instead of making a typical sexy, hot, naughty, or whatever you want to call it cheesy-coupon book, I came up with useful things I knew my husband would appreciate, such as, free food, back massage, and watching his favorite T.V. shows. Think about specific things your significant other enjoys and create coupons tailored to their needs.

Wire Wrapped Flowers

I made this craft a few weeks ago with my women’s bible study group. We study scripture for an hour and make a small craft afterwards. I was a little skeptical at first, but once I tried it I found it to be really enjoyable.

If you’re a jewelry maker like me, you will already have many of these products and tools needed for this project.

Choosing Your Devotional

It’s the beginning of a new year, which means its time to shop for a brand new, freshly printed, unmarked devotional. How exciting!

There are too many different devotionals on the market. How do you pick one? It depends on what you’re looking for. What are your specific needs? I’ve listed a few things  to search for when shopping for the perfect devotional.

2018 Must Read List

Get_in_the_game_summer reading

Another goal of mine this year is to read more, a lot more.  I find it hard to believe (okay, maybe not) I used to hate reading, but the only reading I ever did was for school, stories I had no choice over weather I wanted to read them or not. It wasn’t until my junior of high school I began reading novels I was actually interested in. Ever since then, I’ve found reading to be rather enjoyable and much more relaxing than ever before.

I’ve been slacking off on my book reviews the past couple of months. I need to pick up the pace. Take a look at the novels on my list this year:

Vision Board

Let’s keep these new years resolutions rolling along! All you need for this project are magazines, poster board,  scissors and a glue stick.

If you love cutting and pasting, (or in my case, taping) then this is right up your alley! The kids can even join in as well and make their own.

What is a vision board?

A vision board is a tool used to help clarify, concentrate, and maintain focus on a specific life goal. Literally, a vision board is any sort of board on which you display images that represent whatever you want to be, do, or have in your life.

The new year is a perfect time for a vision board. Flip through and cut images and words from magazines that revolve around your new years resolutions. If you don’t have any magazines on hand check out Half Price Books, your local used bookstore, or ask family or neighbors if they would kindly recycle them to you. Do not buy new magazines, as it will make this project expensive when it doesn’t need to be. Let’s get started!
