6 People You Forget to Thank All Year and Gifts They’ll Appreciate

This post likely contains affiliate links.

Great appreciation gift ideas to say thank you to various service industry providers like the mailman, stylist, teacher, military personnel, etc.

Once again, the Christmas holiday is upon us and I’m looking around wondering where the year went!  The older I get, the faster it seems to go.  Part of getting older means hopefully getting wiser too, right? As I get “wiser” I try to focus more and more on gratitude – all of the things in my life that I take for granted and how much they bless me: my car, my “day” job, this blogging opportunity, comfortable shoes, macaroni-and-cheese…okay, okay, I digress, but it’s all true! I also like to use this time of year to remember all of those people who give to me all year long and bless my life as well, and that’s really the focus ...

This post is sponsored by Carter's; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.  I can't imagine Christmas morning without gifts.  It's like having a birthday without a cake or people singing Happy Birthday to you at least once. It just would not be the same. At all. No matter how tight money was when I was a kid, my parents, eight siblings and I all managed to have at least a few gifts under the Christmas tree every year.  Even though my greed at Christmastime sometimes prevented me from appreciating the gifts I received, I still received gifts! Of course Christmas isn't really about gifts, and birthdays will ...

Tips for Mourning with Those Who Mourn: What to Say and What to Do after a Loss

Nothing is impossible with god - gifts for people mourning - Christian Celebrations DaySpring

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of DaySpring. The opinions and text are all mine. A few weeks ago a teenage boy from church passed away. The week before he passed, he struggled in a coma to overcome the severe head trauma he incurred after hitting a large boulder on his dirt bike while on vacation with family. After a week long battle, his body finally shut down and he passed into the next life. He was an outstanding young man, a joy to his family, and quite the charmer too. Our church congregation, his family near and far, and our local community all rallied together in prayer and fasting for his ...

4 Gifts for Dad That He Wants and Will Remind Him of You

This post likely contains affiliate links.

Great gift for dad ideas for Father's day! I know my husband would love to get these from me or his kids. Gift guide.

Getting the perfect gifts for dad can be something of a dilemma.  What do you get the man who has everything?  And by everything, I (of course) mean a wonderful family, great kids, a beautiful and strong wife, and the blessing of the Gospel in his home. The key is to focus your gifts for dad ideas toward items that remind him of how blessed he is. I know, being just such a dad, there is nothing I like more than having reminders of my loving family, who is praying for me at home while I am at work or school for long hours, and can't come home and see them as I'd like. So, here are some fantastic suggestions for gifts for ...

33 of the Best Gifts to Get Kids Outdoors

This post likely contains affiliate links.

Awesome list of 33 outdoor play equipment and outdoor toys for kids. Great gift guide and ideas to get my kids outdoors.

A large majority of my best memories as a kid happened outdoors. And I grew up in the age of video games, TV, and computers. I'm only 27 years old. I did indeed play a gross amount of video and computer games growing up, in large part because I had six older brothers who were really into them as well. Our family bought a Windows 95 computer right as it came out, and we paid for our internet usage via a coin jar. Before that computer we had a green screen one that we also played games on. We had the original Nintendo and every Nintendo Gaming System (and a few others) through the years. We owned lots of VHS and eventually ...

The Cool Way for Kids to Spend Time Outdoors

5 very good reasons to get your kids into archery! Bows and arrows are so cool!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Genesis Bows for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine. From the very first moment that I shot an arrow from a bow, I thought it was pretty much the coolest thing ever. It was at Girls Camp for church, and that year's girls camp was the bomb in large part because I got to do archery for the first time. My first arrow? Completely missed the target. But my second one? Bull's eye! The rest of my arrows all at least hit the target. I felt like a million bucks! I'm pretty I bragged about that for a while (and I guess still kinda am 10 years later).Unfortunately, we were only able to ...
