Congrats! How fun! Thank you for stopping by my blog. :) I really like yours. Are you a pastor's kid by any chance?
Carissa Rose said…
@Bethany R: Haha, yes, I am. =) How did you figure that out? :P
Bethany R. said…
I am too! I saw the picture with your dad at a pulpit and just wondered. :) That's cool! I love meeting other pastor's kids! How did you find my blog?
Carissa Rose said…
That's really neat! What church is your dad a pastor of?

Haha, that's funny. That picture of my dad at the pulpit, actually wasn't at all related to our church; He wasn't preaching there and it wasn't even at our church building. :P

Well, I found it first through the Andi Blog and then through Rebekah Morris' blog party. =)
Bethany R. said…
My Dad pastors a small church in the country called True Life Christian Fellowship. Where does your dad pastor?

I'm so glad that you found my blog! I look forward to following yours more. :)
Carissa Rose said…
Okay, nice! Where do y'all live? My dad pastors at Christ Covenant Church of KC (soon to become Louisburg). It was actually started just 6 months ago. :) But he has pastored before this new church.

And I look forward to following yours. =)
Bethany R. said…
Did your family start the church? I'm from central California in the area of Paso Robles and King City. How many siblings do you have?
Carissa Rose said…
Yes, we did start the church, with a group of other people.

Okay. Nice! =)

I have six siblings - three older and three younger. How many do you have?
Bethany R. said…
I got your email, and I agree. Emailing will be easier. I'll try to email you soon, but my email is acting weird so that's why I haven't replied yet. :) I have one younger sister.
Carissa Rose said…
Okay. Whenever you respond is fine. :)

Nice! =)

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 #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…
