    When Jesus Was a Green-Eyed Brunette: Loving People Like God Does

    I love when you’re able to judge a book by it’s cover, when I first picked up When Jesus Was A Green-Eyed Brunette by Max Davis. The Christian life is not a matter of behaving like Christ, but of allowing Christ Himself to live in and through us. I am crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but it is Christ who lives in me.— Galatians 2:20 When Jesus Was a Green-Eyed Brunette weaves heartwarming and miraculous stories of Jesus showing up in ordinary people, revealing that He knows us and is fully present in our everyday circumstances, especially in our difficulties. Those hurting and weary…

    Peanut Butter Banana Rice Cakes w/Honey

    I wanted a healthy snack one day and I already knew that rice cakes are great light snack. But I know what you’re thinking, how can you make this cardboard NOT taste just like cardboard. (I said the same thing, haha). So what do I do when I need a yummy recipe? I go to Pinterest and hope to goodness that I don’t get sucked into the black hole of Pinterest. With that said, that’s when I found this totally addicting peanut butter banana rice cakes drizzled with honey. When I made these for myself, just like every other time I find something yummy and the kids caught me. They…

    18 Healthy Snacks You Need In Your Life

    To snack or not to snack, that may be the problem. Healthy snacking improves overall health, curbs cravings, fights weight gain, regulates mood, boosts brain power and gives you the energy you need to keep going all day. Many snacks provide calories, saturated fat, sugar or salt and are low in important nutrients. If you prefer to eat “small and often”, remember that the “small” is usually more important than the “often”. A healthy snack generally has about 60-100 calories – about what you’d get from a piece of fruit, a slice of raisin bread or 1/2 cup of low-fat yogurt. If you’re anything like me, I find myself on Pinterest at late hours…

    How to become a strong Godly woman | Proverbs 31

    I was going through all the notes I’ve taken over the years in my bible. I kept notes on everything from as far back as 2005, from when I got the bible when I was saved. For whatever reason, I flipped to the chapter of Proverbs 31. Proverbs 31 is about being a Godly woman in Jesus. It was a sermon from 2006! I’m going to start this new series if you must call it. I will ever pick topics from the past or something that is on my mind for that week. I really want to bring more God into my life than I have in the past and while…

    Overall the year wasn’t horrible, but I wish I did things differently. But what can you do. Here’s a look back on 2015! You just move on and hope for a better outcome. I’m so ready for 2016. I’m tired of dwelling on the past and ready to do me and make 2016 about moving on to better! I hope you enjoyed the happy moments from 2015. I don’t want to talk about the not happy moments, those aren’t as fun.

    Oreo Holiday Candy Bark | #HeftyHoliday

    Doesn’t this Oreo Holiday Candy Bark look amazing? Let me tell you, I’ve been wanting to make candy bark since the first time I saw it on pinterest. So what a more perfect recipe to make. Because you can’t just let candy bark sit around, you have to keep it stored cold, so it doesn’t melt. So I decided to make some Oreo Holiday Candy Bark. This is something that’s a great family friendly activity to do with the kids or by yourself. It’s an anybody snack and great for last minute gifts for people! When I made this only half of it had smashed candy canes on it, for my…
