Simple Life Sunday #65 Featuring Nature or Nurture? & 5 Thrifty Activities For You And Your Children

Simple Life Sunday Blog Hop

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….

“Wait patiently for the Lord.  Be brave and courageous.  Yes, wait patiently for the Lord.”  Psalms 27: 14

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!

 Thank you for sharing and I would like to invite  you to join Kat’s Sunday Social (our sister hop).

I look very forward to seeing what you will have to share this week!

  1. Hey there my friend! I just wanted to say how much I appreciated the encouraging words in your opening statements. My husband and I have been discouraged this week and feel like we’re walking in mud with our rubber boots on. You know, struggling to lift one foot at a time while barely moving forward. We tell each other that at least we’re moving forward, but sometimes it’s hard to not see the negative while experiencing the stress of this life. I’m so thankful for a Father who has walked before me by His Son and empowers me to endure by His Spirit. Just wanted to say thanks for the love.

  2. Thanks so much for mentioning my post! The more experienced in parenting I get, the more I realize it really is the memories that stay with the boys, not the latest gadget or an expensive outing. The just want to be WITH us, they don’t care WHERE! Hugs my faraway friend!

    • You are most welcome lovely lady!! 🙂 I totally agree with you – when I was a single mom I did not have a lot of money to invest in my children and that era in my life has carried through – the material things just have no value to me – it is the quality time I have with my family that truly matters most and have provided me with the fondest of memories…. It is SO true – they just want to be with us and be a part of what we live and do!! Hugs right back at you my lovely friend!! SO blessed to know you!! XOXO Tam
