Spring has sprung and with it our desire to whip our homes into shape after keeping them closed up all winter. Ultimate Bundles knows this and wants to help you make homemaking easier. Each spring they introduce a new Ultimate Homemaking Bundle and today is the day it is open for purchase!
This review is going to go over the nitty gritty of what the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle is and how it can help (or not help) you. I want this to be an honest review so I’ll be covering who this bundle is for, who shouldn’t buy it, my favorite products, and my final impressions.
I vote for a new category in gifts for moms. Whether you need ideas to give your husband and kids, need ideas for your own mom, or want to get a gift for a special mom friend in your life, give a book.
Books have the opportunity to speak life into us. They open our eyes and ears to new ideas, perspectives, and people. We can discover new ways to approach a problem, hilarious stories, and how we aren’t not so alone in our experiences.
I vote we gift more books. Print books, eBooks, audiobooks, doesn’t matter. Toss them around like confetti and let them inspire the moms around you.
I’ve pulled together some of my favorite books for gifting to moms. These books cover a variety of topics but any of them could be perfect for a mom in your life. I wish I could wrap up a stack and gift them to all my favorite moms – but unfortunately I need to feed my family 😉
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.
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!
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 😉
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!
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!
