Feature Friday: The Home and Beards?

Happy Feature Friday! We’re going to do something a little different today and talk about beards. Okay, a lot different. But stick with me. Did you know that it is believed that many of the Reformers had beards as a rebellion to the Catholic church and the requirements of monks to be clean shaven? I [...]

Christianbook Picks

Happy Tuesday! I wanted to take today to just share with you a few of my favorite Christianbook.com purchases and tell you a little bit more about why I love them so much. On our homepage we have a tab that says “Christianbook” where you can always shop our regularly updated favorite products. But today, [...]

Feature Friday: Happy Reformation Month!

Happy Reformation Month! And Pastor Appreciation Month! I’m so excited for our lineup this month. We only more recently started to celebrate this month for multiple reasons. One being because we find it an opportune time to teach our children about a pivotal time in Christian history and how it affects us today. Secondly, we [...]

As You Walk By The Way

Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall [...]

Feature Friday: Redeeming Meal Time

I heard a woman at my church once say that she often notices walking around the grocery store that mom’s heads are buried in their phones and they are hurried to get their errands done while their children plead for their attention from the basket. She said she understood this but often thought how she [...]

Decorating With Hymns

Today I want to write about one of my very favorite things to decorate with: hymns and hymnals. This either makes me an old lady or chic and vintage… you decide. Regardless, there are so many things that I love about hymnals starting with the fact that hymns are full of so much robust theology. [...]

If you haven’t already noticed, we love unique ways to display Scripture and other things in our home that make us think on God’s character and Word. Sometimes, however, it can get overwhelming posting wordy signs all over your home. At one point I remember my husband and I both saying “I mean, I love [...]

The Holiness of Morning Coffee

For many tired parents in the trenches of parenting, one of the first things they reach for every morning is their wake-up juice, a.k.a. their coffee. Even if you are not a coffee drinker, you understand the notion of the exhaustion and needing something to help you kick-start another day of serving your family. Not [...]

Feature Friday: From Everlasting to Everlasting

If you’ve ever stepped foot into a chain craft/décor store, you have certainly found an abundance of beautiful and adorable nursery designs. The only problem is, well, half of them take a number of Scriptures out of context. I so desired to decorate my children’s rooms with Scripture. Not even just for them but even [...]

The Kitchen, Nostalgia, & Scripture

Here’s how I really want to write this blog: These are cute, the Bible is good, nostalgia is helpful, let's all buy these. BUT, I suppose I can elaborate a bit even though that sums it up pretty well. Anyways, for some reason for me my kitchen has been the hardest place to decorate. It [...]
