Thanks so much for joining me for Simple Life Sunday. Grab your cup of tea or coffee and sit down with me and join me while I look through all the wonderful posts everyone has shared! Before you leave be sure to share one of your favorite posts.
I’d like to take the time today to share with you my favorite Christian Fiction Author – Cathy Bryant. I had an amazing interview with her last week (stay tuned to listen in on the 29th of April) and I feel so nudged to share her with you. Her books are dangerously wonderful – I need to plan to start her books because once I start I can NOT put them down to save my life and just keep reading and reading and reading!! They are POWERFUL, addicting and worth every second of your time. Be sure to check out ALL of her books and her book Crossroads that was released the beginning of April is on Amazon right now for a mere $.99 as are several of her other books. I promise you – you will be touched deeply by her books, taken to an amazing place that you can clearly envision and be ready to embrace her next book….
We had an amazing week here in Idaho and God has blessed us in SO many wonderful and amazing ways! Honestly, Reflecting on this week completely takes my breath away. If you are like we are and are working towards something big and you run into those little bumps, hick ups and derailments from time to time, I would like to encourage you to hang on and remember that things happen in God’s timing, not our own!! Most often than not, when people give up and throw in the towel – there were just a hair away from succeeding and just lost their faith…. I would like to encourage you to keep doing what you are doing… I would like to remind you that YOU are special and YOU have a purpose… Place your FAITH in the Lord and allow him to continue to share his GRACE in his timing… Wait on him and listen….

Through tear filled eyes, I would like to thank Michelle of MichelleNehrig.com with her great contribution to SLS this week with her post titled Nature or Nurture?. We learn SO much from our children and they too are learning from us ALL the time…. This is a FANTASTIC post and I could tell you stories upon stories of similar situations that the Mountain Boy and I have conquered together over the years. He has a tender heart like Michelle’s children and I am humbled all the time by the intentions of his heart and his actions in how God made me the teacher and how blessed I am that the Mountain Boy was learning more from my actions than my words. Children are the silent learners, constantly over our shoulders taking EVERYTHING in so as Michelle pointed out that our hearts, actions and examples never go unnoticed so be sure that ALL of the above are set in the example of God’s word and not of ourselves!! May you not only be a light to your children, but to SO many around you and may you bless lives with your kind, thoughtful and heartfelt gestures!! We are to be a light and remember to let your light shine no matter where you are!! Blessings to you and yours Michelle and THANK YOU greatly for sharing!!
I would also like to thank my dear friend Krystyna of SpringMountainLiving.com for sharing her post titled Cut The Cost Of Family Fun – 5 Thrifty Activities. I LOVE doing just as Krystyna suggests… Using our imagination with our children to create memory making moments vs spending money on things that won’t be nearly as remembered!! Additionally we are nurturing our children’s creative side and providing them with an imagination that will get handed down because it will be something that surely leaves a positive memory… Take time with your children and be creative!! Thanks lovely lady Krystyna for stopping by and sharing – blessings to you and yours!
