Some people like to use a reading plan to read the Bible from cover to cover in a year, there's many ways you can do it. For me, I've found my success in reading from Genesis to Samuel 1 so far has been a desire to know what is in the Bible and a curiousity … Continue reading A Hunger for More…
If you are like me, the holidays have left you more worn out than refreshed and now it's back to the home routine, only your children are not the same ones you left with. They have been spoiled by family members for a week and now they are more wild than ever. They have had … Continue reading Say “Yes” to the New Year 2019
There's so much to be thankful for this Christmas; a screaming 1 year old, a hyperactive 4 year old, two stressed out parents who are exhausted... wait! What am I saying? Yes, it's that time of year when everyone is at their limit! No matter what your situation, know that you are loved by the … Continue reading So much to be thankful for this Christmas
Along with Deuteronomy (NIV Bible) and C.S. Lewis, I was tackling an amazing book seen in the title (One Thousand Gifts) that I could barely put down. Written in a poetic fashion, this book is not for everyone but I think the message itself is incredible. It starts out with a dare to list, (you … Continue reading One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp Review
The Magician's Nephew (Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis) was an easy read and would have been done in the matter of a day or two had it not been for me misplacing the book in a random place while attending to my littlest one. I lost track of it for about a week but … Continue reading Goodness, Gracious!!

I gave Dove's Refresh + Care (Invigorating Dry Shampoo) a test run a few days ago when my 3 day straightened hair was at its end and needed a pick-me-up. I sprayed it on my scalp in sections and brushed it out when I was all done and it did a great job of cleansing … Continue reading Prepping for the Holidays (Dry Shampoo Review)
Christmas baking has begun in our family! My eldest reminded me that we need to put some cookies out for Santa so naturally I decided to test out my gingersnaps on my 3 favourite guys at home. The cookies turned out smaller than expected, but their taste definitely surpassed my expectations! What kick! I followed … Continue reading Gingersnaps!
I absolutely love having straight hair. I love the feel, I love how it looks, it's just so beautiful. One hair dresser at a high end salon said I could easily get away with wearing it for a week before washing it out to maximize how long it lasts, but seriously?? 7 days? I can't … Continue reading Straight hair funk?
I remember reading about some women with anxiety in fiction novels. They would often be characterized as frail, weak and sensitive; all in all, pretty pathetic and a burden to people more than anything else. Admittedly, I would smirk as the authors would target these women using sarcastic humour: "Oh my poor nerves, I just … Continue reading “Oh my poor nerves, I just can’t bear it!”
