Lancaster House and a Giveaway

COVER REVEAL!

Brand new covers for Lancaster House and The Middle Aisle!

~A paranormal romance series by Taylor Dean~

I love my OLD covers. (Pictured on the left.) I really do. They're different from the norm and that's why they captured my attention.
For Lancaster House, I liked the idea of a hand reaching out from the grave. It seemed appropriate to the story; Andre reaches out to Zoe from beyond the grave. It was Carrie-like and kind of creepy.

Dairy Free Coffee and Cocoa {TO DIE FOR} Brownies!!

That's right, peeps!
Today....I'm sharing my go-to recipe when I need a quick sweet fix! I also tend to use this recipe quite often when needing to whip something together for Lil Misters school or to say thank you to someone!

#30dayabchallenge

Organized ChaosI proposed to you as part of my #Commitment2014 focus a #30daychallenge! I am so excited to be bringing you another challenge!


In February, we worked our way through 30 days of planks and eventually achieved a 5 minute plank! I loved the way my abs had felt and have continued to make planks an everyday activity! They are so easy to do...well, anywhere at anytime!

During February, March and April, I was working through my #90daysthroughBible challenge. I took a bit of a dip in May as the chaos of moving and packing and job searching took over every working cell in my brain, but I'm ready to get focused again!

5 Tips to Successful Packing

Most of us have experienced a major move at some point or another in our lives. I’ve somewhat been sparred over the years. Yes, I moved to South Africa....with thre
e suitcases; everything else was left behind. And then our family moved from KZN to Limpopo, but as “kids” in the house, our parents handled that one. This is my first MAJOR move as an adult...and with kids!

Along the way, I listened to others give advice. I remembered mistakes from our previous moves (both to a new province and across town). And I had a general idea of what was in my own house! So, I want to share my Top 5 Packing to Move tips!

Lazy Saturday French Toast

One thing my children absolutely love for me to make is French Toast. For them, it’s a common dessert request and basically held in view as good as ice cream.

I don’t mind either. It’s simple and quick to make and I have the necessary ingredients on hand any given day of the week. I want to share my fool proof recipe!

Is Change Negative

Change is not negative

acumen.org
Have you ever looked back to your high school year books? Statistics show that one of the most commonly written phrases in a year book is “don’t ever change.” I want you to take a moment to consider that phrase. Consider the implications of what it would mean if we never changed from our high school selves. Consider even further if we continued to be the exact same person throughout our lives.

I’m not sure about you, but personally I’m thankful I didn’t take this piece of written nostalgia to heart over the years. In fact, I’m quite sure the world is better for this having been thrown to the wind. Even more so, I’m positive God does if truth be told encourage change.

Sunday Inspiration: Splitting Hairs for Jesus

Have you ever felt so strongly about something in your faith only to have someone else point out it may not be that important?
Have you watched a church crumble over meaningless politics while the "sheep" are led astray?
Do you ever wonder why people are adding to the Bible when actually it's perfect just as it is?

Have you been guilty of any of this?

Saturday Funny: Anniversary Style

In light of our 5 year anniversary, I thought I'd spread some humor on the toast!

Happy Anniversary!

Today....today Hubby and I have technically been married for 5 years! I say technically because if you’ll remember in last year’s post, I revealed our big secret about having been married a little under a month before our wedding! 5 years do not come without their ups and downs. A perfect marriage does not exist in the sense that everything is unicorns and rainbows 100% of the time. In a real marriage, you disagree at points, you fail each other and yourself at points, and you are soared above cloud 9 at points. What makes an okay marriage become great is how you handle each of these situations.
 

I’m not here to make you think we’ve got it perfect, but to tell you there is a handbook that does have it all printed out!

Welcome Tammy; The Happy Handicap

about meHey peeps! I want to welcome you to this months You’re a Star sponsor! Tammy has been hanging around my blog for a couple of months now in different spots and I’m so excited to have her being featured at the bottom of each of my posts!

Tammy is an amazing, walking inspiration! Literally! Her story of overcoming a disability at birth and the way Christ has continuously worked in her life to provide miracle after miracle is breathtaking!

Today, Tammy blogs at The HappyHandicap about her life and family, their struggles and their achievements, the beautiful work of Christ and the ministry He has inspired within her. Recently, Tammy has written a book that will evoke every emotion you’re capable of feeling! Her story is one in a million and I feel blessed that she is sharing it!

When you listen to these lyrics and consider what I feel God is calling from my life at the moment...you can really come to peace with knowing all things are possible! For we do nothing alone....but all things are done through Christ who strengthens us!

Take a moment today to praise God for just how powerful He is! If you want, stop by our prayer page and leave us a message about how we can begin praying for you today!

Simplicity: Called to Live Simply

It’s all across the world...especially the blogging world, yesterday was Mother’s Day. And Hubby gave me the best gift....being home with our family!


Of everything that has been happening these past two months, yesterday was perfect. In fact, the entire weekend was perfect. I put my phone aside this weekend to just focus on spending time with our family. (This isn’t just a rambling post about our boring, yet satisfying weekend...there is a point so keep reading!)
