Update on 2019 Goals – March

Once again a month flew by. It didn’t help that we faced multiple winter storms that seemed to wipe days off the calendar as we watched them approach. And by we I mean both the collective “we” of the area and me – Micah does not watch the weather the way I do. I have some weird fascination with watching radar and knowing the forecast 🙈

But now we seem to be inching toward spring. Our snow mountains are shrinking and we can actually see [wet, muddy] grass showing up in random patches. I’ve even gone outside in short sleeves to get the mail and haven’t turned into a Katie-cicle! I’m ready for flowers, bike rides, and chalk drawings in outfits that don’t include heavy coats and frozen fingers.

50+ Bible Verses to Pray Over Your Husband

How do you pray for the people and relationships in your life? We pray over our marriage every night and we each pray for each other, but these are regular prayers with our own words. Nothing wrong with that at all, but do you ever pray using scripture?

I searched and searched and while there are hundreds, if not thousands of verses you can use as prayers, I wanted to pull out a manageable number. I started with about twenty verses but as I searched I came across more and more that really spoke to me and I knew I needed to expand my list. As I wrote each verse as a prayer I inserted Micah’s name and could feel the power these prayers can have. God’s Word is living and active – it’s no wonder I could sense the Spirit moving in me!

Free Printable Spring Bingo

To bring a little spring into our lives, we are playing Spring Bingo! My kids love bingo games and while I’m sure they would be perfectly happy playing Christmas Bingo all year round, I wanted something a little more seasonally appropriate. It’s filled with images of birds, insects, flowers, fresh veggies, and springtime activities so we can at least imagine what it would be like to go outside without forty layers 😉

Update on 2019 Goals – February

January took approximately 572 years but February was gone by the time I blinked. I don’t get how a loss of 2-3 days compared to a normal month can make such a difference but oh my goodness! I feel like we didn’t get to do anything in February!

Okay, that’s a lie because we actually did do quite a bit. We celebrated our daughter’s sixth birthday, we got our taxes filed, we picked out a new couch (eventually we will actually go buy it!) and I finished writing my first ebook! Now I need to edit it so it’s ready to show all of you 😀 That will be one of my main focuses over the next few weeks. I don’t think it will take super long and I already have time blocked out in my day to focus only on book work. Wooo!

Free Printable Birthday Interview

It’s our daughter’s 6th birthday today and to celebrate I’m sharing this FREE Printable Birthday Interview you can print and use with your own kids. I’ve been doing birthday interviews with our kids since they were pretty little and it’s so fun to look back over each year’s interview and see how their interests have changed – or stayed the same!

Is Kindle Unlimited Worth the Price? {An Honest Review}

When I heard about Kindle Unlimited I was intrigued but couldn’t justify the $9.99/month price tag for books. I mean, we are pretty darn frugal and I’m all about getting books for free or as close to free as possible. I love the library and being able to read just about any book I want without it cluttering up my home when I’m done. I typically don’t want to own books, I just want to read them and move on. The only books I want to own are the few that I want to go back to over and over again.

And that’s the perk of Kindle Unlimited – the variety of a library without the clutter in my home. So is it worth it?
