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

Thoughts from a Sermon // Lazy Praying

Recently a friend shared a sermon with me; Listening to it this morning, I was extremely challenged. I've written out some thoughts from the sermon, but I encourage you to listen to it.

We are in a war. A very real war. A very dirty and bloody and hard war. A war not against flesh, not against other humans, a war against spiritual darkness, a war against evil, a war against the spiritual forces of Satan. Yet are we living that way? Are we girded in the armor of God? Are we fighting in this war? Are we preparing for this war? Are we pressing on even when it's hard? Or are we comfortable where we are? Are we content where we are? We've become so wrapped up in the things of the world. The world is trying to put us to sleep. It's trying to make us put down our guard.

God has given us everything that we need to fight in this war - the armor of God, the Spirit, His power. Jesus has already overcome Satan and the world and death. We are on the side that we know is going to wi…

Meditations // Jeremiah 1:6-8

"Then I said, 'Ah Lord God! Behold I do not know how to speak, for I am only a youth.' But the Lord said to me, 'Do not say "I am only a youth" for to all to whom I send you, you shall go, and whatever I command you, you shall speak. Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you to deliver you,' declares the Lord." --Jeremiah 1:6-8 In this passage God commands Jeremiah to speak to the people on His behalf and what does Jeremiah do? "I do not know how to speak, for I am only a youth." This wasn't an easy task, nor would it be a fun task, or a task where the people would love him, it was a difficult, uncomfortable hard task. Jeremiah thought himself too young. Jeremiah didn't think that God could use him because of his age. But what does God say? That HE would be with Jeremiah, give him the words to say, and deliver him. God doesn't just command him to do something, he also gives us promises to go with that command.
