December Scripture Writing Plan

For those who did the November Scripture Writing Plan & enjoyed it,
here's the plan for the month of December!

Writing scripture down each day is such a great way to really focus on God's word!
During this super crazy hectic time of year- this is one way to spend
a few minutes each day focusing on what is truly important! 

One of my sweet readers, Lori, translated this month's plan into Spanish- 
how sweet is that? 

You can find a copy of both to print for yourself in the folder 

In case you missed it, November's plan can be found HERE

For those that have asked, there is also a blank form 
to write your verses on that can be found HERE

I'll be updating the plans for the new year 
so if you check back at the end of each month, 
I'll have the plan posted for the following month!

Thankful for YOU Printables

I LOVE Thanksgiving for many reasons but mostly I think it's because
 it's the one time of the year people stop to tell 
those they love how truly thankful they are for them.  

I think we all think those things- 
we just don't stop very often to tell those around us 
so Thanksgiving is the perfect time to do so! 

Most years I post some sort of Thanksgiving printable
or tag so I thought I would put them all in one place this year! 

These I formatted these so they will print 6 per sheet.

You can find all of these in a folder HERE. to print out! 
Why not print some out and share them with folks you are thankful for today?

Give Thanks

It's easy to be thankful when things in life are going well 
and life is happy and easy and good. 
It's a little (ok, maybe a lot) harder when things aren't going very well- 
when you are faced with a crisis, financial problems, relationship issues, 
and everything seems like to a big old giant mess. 

John 16:33 reminds us that we WILL have trouble in this world:
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. 
In this world you will have trouble. 
But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

I've found that when going through those difficult times in my life, 
if I focus on being thankful for 
the little blessings that happen even (and especially) 
during tough times, my perspective completely changes. 
 As I notice and recognize the Lord’s provision during trials, 
I can genuinely and truthfully express gratitude. 

I often don’t know what the purpose is for each problem or trial I face, 
but I do know without a shadow of a doubt that 
God is good and trustworthy and faithful.

1 Thessalonians 5:18 is one of my favorite verses because 
it is such a beautiful reminder to thank God, no matter what!
You can print out your own copy of this verse in the folder HERE.

Give Thanks

This quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson is one of my favorite gratitude quotes. 
It's such a beautiful reminder that we shouldn't 
overlook the little things!

Grateful & Joyful

 I'm a strong believer that if we practice being grateful, 
we will be more joyful! 
The very best way for me to get out of a funk, is to count my blessings. 
This quote sums up that belief perfectly! 

You can print out your own cop in either JPG or PDF HERE.

Hey You.....Did you know that YOU MATTER?

A few weeks ago I posted a fun printable HERE for folks to 
print and post as a reminder to others that God loves them.  

When I made that printable I also made another version to be used in my school district
and posted about it on my Technology Rocks Seriously blog this morning. 

If you'd like to print and post either one, you can find them both in folder HERE
Why not print one out and take the time to remind folks that they matter?

Gratitude into Blessings

I love the month of November for many reasons- 
one being that so many folks seem to focus on being thankful during the month.  
I'm a firm believer that counting your blessings is 
something that can truly change your mindset 
when you are struggling or feeling down and is something we should do daily!  

I'm a huge lover of quotes and have a ton saved on gratitude and being thankful. 
I decided I'm going to make some printables of my favorites this month and share them.
Because when I have my cranky pants on- sometimes just seeing a visual reminder, 
can turn my stinky attitude around! 

This is one of my favorites by William Arthur Ward that I actually did a printable 
for years ago but decided it needed a makeover!

You can print out your own copy in the folder HERE.

You CAN do Hard Things

Seems like I know so many folks struggling- 
with family issues, with work issues, with marriage issues, 
with financial issues, with friend issues, with children issues. 

Sometimes when we struggle we need a reminder that 
we are strong, someone believes in us, and we CAN do hard things.  
I made these printables to hand out to the fab teachers 
at our Teacher Leadership Academy yesterday 
but thought you or someone you know might need the reminder too. 

So, here you go.....

Hey YOU! Did you know....

I don't know about you but there are some days 
that I SO need the reminder that God loves me. 

I mean, I KNOW intellectually that He does- 
but sometimes when things are yucky 
(root canals and rashes and a mouse in your house, OH MY!)
I tend to forget the truth that....

He is always with me......If anyone leaves, it's me, not Him.
He will bless me......Just not always in the ways I think.
He will provide for me......ALWAYS. 
He will give me rest......If I will listen.
He will go before me.....And with me. 
He will guide me.....I just have to seek Him. 
He will answer me.....If and when I shut up long enough to listen. 
He will strengthen me........He IS my strength. 
He will always love me.....NOTHING can separate me from His love. 

I typed up a little reminder for myself 
and to post in bathrooms and mirrors and bulletin boards- 
for anyone that might need the reminder too!

T-shirts for Sale!

 Five years ago I started my t-shirt fundraiser hobby with this shirt 
to raise funds for my precious friend G 
who was headed to Guatemala on a mission trip. 

Since then we've sold LOTS of shirts but I still get requests 
for this first one every time I wear it. 
So, we are doing our first shirt again! 

The shirt comes in forest green, cranberry, or black v-neck 
(the v-necks are not slim fit- they are the BEST v-neck I've ever worn!)
and in forest green and black crew neck long sleeves. 

All profits will go to my sweet friend to help fund her Jan. 2016 trip to Guatemala 
where she'll work in two orphanages and with the organization Mayan Families. 

If you are interested, you can purchase your shirt at this link:
