Cream Cheese Swirl Brownie Recipe

For the brownie
*1 package brownie mix (18.3 oz)
*1/4 cup water
*1/2 cup vegetable oil
*2 large eggs
For the cream cheese swirl
*6 oz cream cheese, softened
*5 tbsp butter, softened
*1/3 cup sugar
*2 large eggs
*2 tbsp flour
*3/4 tsp vanilla extract

*Preheat oven to 350 F
*Prepare the brownie mix according to box and pour half of the batter into greased 13" x 9" pan.
*Beat together all ingredients for cream cheese swirl and pour evenly over brownie batter in pan.
*Pour the remaining brownie batter on top. Take a knife and run it through the batter mixing together the brownie batter and cream cheese swirl until they swirl together.
*Put in oven for 30 minutes (The recipe says 24-26 minutes but when I put it in for that long they weren't near down. I put them back in for a while but I didn't time it. I just checked the brownies every so often. To know when the brownies should be done the edges are done quite a bit (not burnt though) and the middle should be clean when a toothpick is inserted).

Craft : : Puzzle Hearts

(Sorry for the poor photo)
So here is a tutorial on how to make these cute puzzle hearts.
Materials *Puzzle with missing pieces *Hot glue gun *Heart template (For the heart template just draw a heart shape the size you want or trace around a heart)
Directions 1. Lay puzzle pieces around the outside edge of the heart template until they all lay nicely with no big gaps 2. Lay another layer of puzzle pieces on top and then glue those pieces on one by one 3. Lay two more layers on top and glue them on as before 4. Paint the heart the color that you want and glue a ribbon to the back...if you are giving it as a gift you can add a little gift tag
Helpful Hints Make sure before you start that nobody wants to put the puzzle together :D When you lay out the layers of puzzle pieces lay them on top of each brick style so that all the pieces are connected and it won't fall apart when you pick it up Have fun!! :D
Please comment and tell me if you try it out :D

2016 National Bible Bee // Pictures

National Bible Bee 2016 was so amazing, so of course I had to take lots of pictures of the week. Unfortunately, because of our internet, I am unable to upload them, I'm going to post a few on here and then give some links at the bottom of the post.

2016 National Bible Bee // Lesson #3

This will be the final lesson that I share from my journey in Bible Bee. While I've only shared three lessons, there were so many more that I learned.

So often I get caught up in the future - what will I be doing, where will I live, etc... In my thinking of the future, I miss the present. Life flies by so quickly, and if I spend time wishing for/dreaming about the future, I will lose the present. I'll "wake up" five years from now and regret the time that I threw away.

Every day there are so many little things that we can enjoy and give thanks for. Yet, I so easily lose sight of the present in dreaming about the future. While in Bible Bee, it was so easy to dream about Nationals that I lost study time and time with my family. Then Nationals would come, it'd be over, and I'd look back and think "why did I spend so much time dreaming about Nationals that I let myself lose study time?"

The present days are so precious. Be content with where you are. Do…
