A New Journey Begins

Sorry for the double posts in one day. I started this last week and never to back to it. 

Just a quick update on my life! I took a year leave of absence from teaching to give my time and full focus on my family. God has been calling me to do this for about 8 years and I am finally being obedient!! I cannot begin to tell you the many blessings I have already experienced!!! 

Now that I have more time (during the time my girls are at school), I have decided to start a new faithbook. In the past my faithbook was all about recording different aspects of my faith. This time my focus is growing and strengthening my relationship with The Lord. I am really excited about this journey. I will be sharing my journey here as well!! 

I have decided to use the SN@P 6x8 album. I like the flexibility in LO types I can create!! Here is my first LO about why I am doing this faithbook!

This week I am working on creating a title page for my new book. I hope you'll stop by and check it out!!

I also want to remind you that The Stamping Boutique is have a reopening party THIS SATURDAY!!

"Prayers for a Woman's Soul" Bible Study Week 2 Reflection

I started an on line Bible study of the book Prayers for a Woman's Soul led by the author, Julie Giles.

This week the focus is attitude!! I know this is definitely a struggle for me. There were multiple areas of attitude that she spoke of that I find in my own attitude. Today I am focusing on how often I get caught up in comparing myself to others. It usually leads to one of 2 things - feeling like a failure or criticizing the other person so I can feel superior. Neither of these reactions reflect the attitude of humility God calls me to have.

Their is a wonderful list of verses at the end of the chapter. Today, I felt the need to reflect on

Philippians 2:5 - "Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus. 

I liked the Life Application Bible notes on this verse. They reminded me of several aspects of Christ's attitude 
    - "Jesus was humble"
    - "Like Christ we should have a servant's attitude, serving others out of love for God and others..."
    - "Remember, you can choose your attitude."

That last note hit hard. There are so many times I let circumstances or other people's attitudes determine. I have become a very reactive person. This week I want to really focus on choosing my attitude and having it be a reflection of Christ's humility. I know with the guidance of the Holy Spirit this change will be made!!

Thanks for stopping by!! Hope you week is off to a good start!

   1. Your project must follow the theme.
   2. You can enter a card, scrapbook layout, altered item, etc...
   3. It must be a new creation
   4. Please connect to the actual blog post where your project is located.

Here is one of the cards I made for using the TSB images Santa and Audrey.
