Offer Forgiveness

Life is short. Offer Forgiveness.     When we hold back forgiveness, we are only punishing ourselves.  When we hang on to anger and bitterness, we ourselves are the ones that will suffer in the end. Being able to offer forgiveness is a way we ware able to glorify God. Because it is only through the forgiveness we have received from Him that we can offer forgiveness to others.   Bear with each other and forgive one another if any … Read More

Livin’ On A Budget

posted in: Write 31 Days | 0

I know some of you may not like this word; however, I believe that livin’ on a budget is vital to Living the Full Life. I know some of you may cringe at the word Budget. I get this – I used to too. Although I was always financially responsible, I never lived with an actual budget until I was married.

Simplify

If you remember from my Purpose Statement post, one of our points was to practice organized simplicity.  What does that look like? To put it simply, it means to simplify our life and live in an organized manner.     I don’t know about you, but I hate it when I can not find something. Especially when it is not where it is supposed to be! This is not only nerve-wracking, but it glaringly points out the obvious – I have too … Read More

Sabbath Sunday – Social Media Fast

I know I wrote on Day 5 about Knowing Your Limits, well, today I am adding to that.  Yes, I still want you to know your limits and I want you to have freedom in saying, “no” to things that are not within your limits, but I also want to ask you to stretch yourself.

Product links are affiliate links. Read my full disclosure here.   Today was our homeschool co-op day. That means we are out of the house from 8:15 until about 4:00. For me – an introvert – this day, although I love it, drains me. Thankfully, I am aware of this, and I take measures to help keep me from losing my cool. If you want to live the full life you need to know your limits. I have two hours … Read More
