A New Year :: 2016

It's hard to believe that 2016 is already here. While thinking about what goals/resolutions I was going to make for this year I decided to read through Jonathan Edward's Resolutions. Here are a couple of them for your new year. 

"Resolved, never to lose one moment of time; but improve it the most profitable way I possibly can."

"Resolved, never to do anything, which I should be afraid to do, if it were the last hour of my life."
What are some of your New Year Goals/Resolutions?

Wow, good quotes! That first one is so hard for me - thanks for sharing. :) I'd love to hear some time what plans you have made for yourself this new year.

@Steve: Well, I haven't had much time to think about them all... :P One is to spend to read 1 spiritual book every month, to complete my Bible reading plan, to encourage someone else daily... My new year starts after the GS so I will be thinking more about them then. :) What are some of yours?

Sounds good! :) Can't wait for you to get back from GS so we can talk!

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 // Lesson #1

During my time as a National Bible Bee Contestant, I learned so much - not just through studying the Word, but also through participating. In the following few blog posts, I am going to share a few lessons that I have learned.

The National Bible Bee is a great incentive to memorize and study God's Word. The prize money that is given away each year is a large amount, so it can be very easy to focus on studying in order to do well and hopefully win. During my time as a contestant, I've struggled with doing it for the right reasons. Unless one is careful the prize money can become a snare. The recognition can become a snare. The trip to Nationals can become a snare. Even studying and memorizing to have more knowledge can become a snare. 
A lesson that was key in my studying this year was that I must focus on Christ. He is the true prize. I was studying, yes, to participate in the National Bible Bee, but the main thing was to know Christ better. He is the treasure found in the Bib…
