Could your home use more gratitude?

In case you haven't heard yet about this amazing new book that is about to launch... Raising Grateful Kids in an Entitled World by Kristen Welch (of We are THAT Family ) is a must-read for parents who are looking for encouragement, inspiration, and creative ideas on how to bring more gratitude into their homes.  I know I am one of those parents and I was so excited to be chosen for the launch team for this book.   This book is being such a blessing to me, my husband, and, ultimately, our children!  Each chapter is filled with godly principles and Scripture and ends with practical application ideas for you to begin putting in place with your family immediately.   Raising Grateful Kids in an Entitled World 'hits the shelves' on January 26th ...but if you pre-order by January 25th you get an amazing Global Family Kit with your book--plus free (domestic) shipping!   Head over here to read more about it. sporting my gratitude bracelet from Mercy House

Happy New Year 2016!

I'm excited about this new year!  I'm so ready to put last year behind me. 2015 was just a tough year with lots of challenges.  Not that I don't expect challenges in this new year but I am just planning to face them with more grace, more patience, more of reliance on God.  Basically just more of God.  Without Him I can do nothing! My grace is sufficient for you; for my power is made perfect in weakness. II Corinthians 12:9 Some ways I am taking on the new year's challenges are: daily Bible reading ...I'm going back to one of my fave reading plans: the chronological one with the YouVersion Bible app reading a new-to-be but old devotional for the first time: My Utmost For His Highest by Oswald Chambers beginning my mornings with prayer and coffee--the best way! How are you beginning  your new year?
