Printable Christmas Coupon Book for Kids

One thing we try to instill in our children at Christmas and throughout the year is that Christmas has a whole lot more meaning than what we see around us each December.  It’s not about the presents, dinners, parties, performances, cookies, elves, or even Santa.  It’s about Jesus.  It’s about His decision to come to earth to save His creation. While we endeavor to nurture these truths in our children’s hearts, we do celebrate Christmas by giving gifts to each other.  I work hard to find gifts for each child that they will enjoy throughout the year.  Some challenge their […]

Elf on the Shelf Free Printable Planner Calendar

Elf on the Shelf Planner Calendar

One tradition our family loves at Christmas is to celebrate advent – the coming of the King.  We read our favorite advent books each year (see my review here), but we’ve also jumped on the Elf on the Shelf bandwagon and laugh at silly elf antics.  Pinterest is loaded with ideas from other elf owners to inspire your elf to get into mischief have fun after your littles have gone to bed. When we started doing the Elf of the Shelf thing, I had a hard time keeping up with the great ideas.  Some of them are SO funny, but […]

Organizing and Styling a Bookcase ~ Top Organizing Bloggers Family Room Tour

Updating and Styling a Built-in Bookcase

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you may know that I work alongside some other fabulous organizing bloggers fairly regularly.  We are working together once again to take you on tours of our homes to inspire you on your journey of getting organized! Yesterday I showed you an outdated built-in bookcase in a little recessed corner of my family room.  I have wanted to update it for a long time and I’m thrilled with the results! This built-in seemed to be more of an eyesore and “random stuff collector” than anything, and I thought about closing it […]

Updating a Built-In Bookcase

Preparing to Paint the Outdated Bookcase

Did I ever tell you that when my hubby and I were house hunting we found our home in three days? Well, we did, and it was really a miracle how it all worked out.  (Long story warning…feel free to skip down past the first picture) If you don’t already know it, my husband is a pastor. We were in the process of being hired at our church when I was pregnant with our fourth child. We looked extensively online for housing in the city where the church is, but weren’t coming up with anything we liked. It is 600 […]
