Hello Fall Leaf Printable and DIY | Inspire My Creativity Link Party

The leaves are crisp and starting to fall. The weather is finally not in the 100's anymore, and while it's a little too warm still for "sweater weather", I think it's safe to say that my favorite season of the year is here to stay! One of my favorite things about autumn is when all the leaves start changing colors. As a kid I used to visit my great-grandparents and extended family on the East Coast. You have not experienced fall leaves until you've been to New England in the fall season! There is something so magical (and colorful!) about all the fall leaves there!

This month I'm participating as a host in the Inspire My Creativity link-up. Our theme for this month is, all things leaves! I was inspired to come up with a simple craft that you probably already have all the supplies for. I even have a printable for you!

The CSB Study Bible For Women Review

I have a confession. I have a bad habit of not reading my bible everyday! I know I should and could do better. I can come up with a million excuses why, but basically it's because I let other things get in the way when that should be the most important thing on my to-do list! If I'm being truly honest with myself and with you, I make excuses because it's really hard for me to focus on what I'm reading sometimes. Busy moms don't have all the time in the world to sit and ponder...one of these days in life I'm sure I'll have the extra time, but today is not that day! It's just the season of life I'm in. And ya know what? That's OK. Even a quick 5 minutes is better than nothing. I've found that some Bible translations are cumbersome to read. Who talks with all the "thous" and "thus" in 2018? (If you do, that's totally cool! Just not my thing!) That's why I was so excited to try out The Study Bible For Women. (keep on reading for my honest review!)

Prone To Wander LA | Review and Giveaway

Mother's Day is just around the corner, and I have an amazing gift idea for you! Have you heard of Prone To Wander? They have gorgeous phone cases, and a new line of "home decor" items. I was recently given some phone cases to review. I'll be honest, I'm pretty picky when it comes to phone cases. My expectations were pretty low, but WOW was I pleasantly surprised when I received the cases in the mail!

ICB Prayer Bible For Children | Review and Giveaway

The ICB Prayer Bible For Children is specifically written in a way that makes it easy for kids to understand. I agreed to review the ICB Prayer Bible For Children thinking it would make a great gift for my 6 year old daughter. What I wasn't expecting was how much I myself would enjoy reading the ICB translation! Sometimes all the "thou's" and "doth's" and the old language that we really don't use today makes it a challenge to focus and read God's Word. I found this version of the Bible to be an easy-to-understand read, and actually written in a way that draws you in to the verses.

Banana Bread With Chocolate Chips Recipe

When I was a kid, my mom made banana bread (or cookies) probably at least once a week. She loved banana bread! She had several versions of banana bread that she liked, but my favorite was when she would throw some chocolate chips into the mix. To be honest, I'm not a huge fan of banana bread unless it has chocolate chips in it. But with chocolate chips? I'm totally into that! Chocolate chips just make everything more magical don't they?
