DIY: How cute is this?

Saw this cute bracelet tutorial by following a link featured on Divine Chaos. How cute is that? And it looks pretty simple to make too!

Great read!

Read "A Wife After God's Own Heart" by Elizabeth are going to love it!
I've learned so much from it already. And it's even got me making the bed (mostly) every day, which is something that I have never, ever been good about. But seriously I've learned some really great, big and small lessons about this great book about looking at a marriage through God's eyes. Here are some of my favorites so far:

1) Pray for your husband several times a day.
2) Be scant with your words (it's not just in my blog that I go on and on...)
3) An object in motion tends to stay in motion so even on days you don't feel like doing even the smallest of chores, just get started and you'll most likely keep going.

For those of you that might not be wives yet, the same author of "a wife" makes a book for "a woman", "a mother", etc. Plus her husband wrote a companion book for the men in our lives.

So rather you choose to read this book in small group or simply on your own, it's worth it. My one suggestion is to take it a week at a time. Spread your chapters out and reflect on what you read. That's made this a very special read for me and one that I'll most likely reread each year (if not more often).
