Do you struggle with reading God's word?

I will never forget when I first started trying to read the Bible!  I didn't know where to start!  I couldn't pronounce many of the words/names!  It was such a struggle.  I wanted to read God's word!  I needed to read God's word!  I seriously didn't know what to do.  

I know I'm not the only one who's ever had this issue.  Well, Illustrated Faith's, Shanna Noel has written a book called, "10 Ways to Fall in Love with Your Bible and Stay in Love."  This book would have been so helpful when I first started trying to get into the Word!!  The book has 10 chapters, so it's a relatively short book.  Chapter titles include:  Get Rid of the Excuses, Turn the Guilt into a Gift, Get Personal, Write Love Letters to God and Get your Daily Dose just to name a few!

Even though I'm a little more...uh...seasoned when it comes to reading and studying God's word, I still find that this book is helpful.  It really gives me a boost to my everyday time in God's word!  If you've ever struggled with this problem or if you just want to be a little more intentional in your time spent with God, just go to Day Spring's website where you can order the book.

Have a wonderful day!

A New Kit from DaySpring!

One of my favorite books in the Bible is Esther.  I love the entire story.  I love how Mordecai reveals to Esther in chapter 4, verse 14, "14 were made queen for just such a time as this?"

This statement isn't just meant for Esther; it's for us today!  God had His hand in every aspect of Esther's life.  If it hadn't been for her, God's people wouldn't have been saved!  

I've said all of that to say this, I'm so very excited about the NEW BIBLE JOURNALING KIT from DaySpring.  It's called "A Heart that Receives" and it's all about Esther!!!  This is my favorite kit so far! 

                           The "A Heart that Receives" kit includes:
1 plastic pouch

1 devotional booklet          
1 clear stamp collection
1 roll of washi tape
1 bookmark magnet
1 sheet of cut-out paper pieces
2 cardstock sticker sheets
3 tip-ins and
1 thank you card from Shanna

Not only do I love everything about Esther's story but my favorite color is pink and yellow & pink are the prominent colors in this kit!  And there are several reminders of Esther 4:14 throughout the kit!!

I just love the little devotional booklet.  It's great to do quick devotions for lunch or anytime you have a few extra minutes and want to devote them to the Lord.  It's also great as an add on to your normal devotional but it's PERFECT for being your normal devotional.  The devotions in it are down to earth and to the point.  I just love them!!!

Be sure to check out the author of this month's devotional is Kim Marquette.  Be sure to check out her sight.  In this booklet, each page includes
Scripture, the devotion from Kim and questions to help you dig deeper.  There's also space for notes on each page.

These cardstock stickers are so fun!  The come in various sizes, shapes and colors!  Honestly, using them really spruces up my normally 'plain paper' notes!!  

The washi tape is fabulous.  It's printed in great colors and says, over and over, 'strong and courageous!'  I definitely need to be reminded to be strong and courageous!!

The bookmarks that come in the kit are so amazing.  They are full of color and can definitely catch your attention when placed in your Bible or other book.  You can't miss them!

I'm so in love with this kit!  It's absolutely amazing.  You don't want to miss it.  Check out this amazing kit, "A Heart That Receives" kit, by clicking on the image below:
