Hope Week 1 of Advent Sunday devotional

So, I had this crazy idea that I obviously needed more work to do in my life because life isn't crazy enough. And this is the result of said work so far, the beginning of a family Advent devotional. It's geared towards families with teens and it assumes that you've been celebrating Advent already, but even if you haven't you can still use it! You will need an advent wreath, candles, something to light said candles, and a bible. My hope is that it helps you connect with your family this Christmas season. Check back often to see if I make it beyond week one and into the other three! Feel free to print this to have available and to share with friends! The scripture is from the ESV, I'm sure when it's all said and done I will have a ton of legal mumbo jumbo to go along with this little project.

Literary Book Gifts

I was recently approached by the owner of the website to see if I would be interested in sharing my thoughts on her products. Since I love books, I thought that I'd take a look at her site. Turns out there was plenty of things there that I thought that you might be interested in seeing too. Literary Book Gifts designs are created by Melissa the owner. When asked about where the images come from she told me "Some are remastered off of old book covers, and some are based off of antique illustrations that do or don't have any inherent connection to the novel." Looking through her site, I'm reminded of something my brother once told me in reference to farmer's markets, "If a stall only has one or two items, you can pretty much know that they grew them themselves." Literary Book Gifts is not an extension of the big sites that sell hundreds of copy paste items. This is an artist who is offering her art for your appreciation.

What Are You Building?

This week's story is a sermon on Mark 13: 1-8. Where we're encouraged to take a look at what we're building up here on earth and to tear down any obstacles that might be in the way of doing what we're supposed to.
