Betty Crocker Fun

We home school, but Box Tops products are still a vital part of our schooling.  Mainly because they are great products that we use to learn a few things. When MyBlogSpark offered me the chance to receive this:

 
I said, "YES!"
When the package arrived, there was a box of Betty Crocker family size milk chocolate brownies, iclips with cute cupcakes, two notepads, Box Top pencils, a neoprene lunch bag and a cupcake bag! 

 
I pulled out my trusty Baker's Edge pan and called in our budding cook.

She's got on her apron and she's ready to do some learning.

Learning to measure ingredients.

Cracking eggs. We crack eggs into a bowl in case any shells might fall in and then we don't have to pick them out of the batter.

Mixing is a very important skill. 

Almost as important as tasting.* 

MMMM brownies!

They get a big thumbs up.  

I do collect Box Tops and pass them along to friends who have children in public schools.  According to the Box Tops Website, the program is available to home school associations with 15 or more students.  

The winner of the Giveaway is Kelly!  Thanks for reading!!

The Minimalist Home by Joshua Becker

I've been following Joshua Becker's blog for a few years and have read all the things and even put them into action. I was excited to be able to read his room-by-room guide for minimizing your home.

The Minimalist Home systematically goes through every space in your home, including the garage and yard, and talks about how to minimize them. Becker has put thought into which spaces should happen first for the biggest impact and encouragement. Because even though it's wonderful to have a minimalist garage, it may not be the best place to start and get the whole house done.

Our home has been trending towards minimalist in nature for a while now. And I'm happy to share with you that this little book helped us take a few more steps in the minimal direction. I loved all the checklists for the different areas. As well as the facts about living space and stuff consumption sprinkled throughout.  The Notes section is full of great resources for further reading as well.

Lent aka Spring Training

If you've been paying attention, you'll have noticed that there's less and less of me on social media. I started small with changing my password on my Facebook account so that I couldn't check it. And that quickly escalated to a downloading of my account and deletion. Like, never getting it back, it's gone, if you want one, you'll have to start over deletion. And then I just switched my time to checking my Instagram, which used to be in check until Facebook went away. And then lent started and I put all of my Instagram accounts on temporary disable. And they're probably going to stay that way until I get beyond the point of turning to my phone to see if it has anything for me in terms of entertainment and validation. Hopefully, that will be take about 40 days, give or take a few Sundays.

So, I'm hoping to use this lent period to get myself all prepped for what can be in my life. I really want to serve God with all my heart, my soul, my mind, and my body…

Four Cups by Chris Hodges

Four Cups by Chris Hodges is a brief book based on the four cups associated with the Seder Meal. Within the Seder meal, four promises of God are celebrated. Hodges goes through the four promises and challenges the reader to live them out.

Those four promises are:
1. God will free you from oppression.
2.God will free you from slavery.
3. God will redeem you.
4. God claims you and wants to celebrate that.

My favorite was the last promise. I think that it's very rare that we get together with other Christians to celebrate the fact that we belong to God. We have plenty of parties, but often those are to mark events or the passing of time, but not often do we celebrate the fact that we get to hang out with the Holy Spirit.

Each chapter is short enough that it could be read aloud by a group and then followed with a simple prayer. It would make a nice book study for a group. Hodges also recommends using the four cups to help grow your faith community. And by growth, he means people movin…
