I did this activity a few weeks ago with the boys. I sure do miss watching little Benny! I traced the boys and allowed them to color in their bodies. They were not to thrilled with laying down still but they had fun seeing the finished product. I will have to do this soon with my year old since she might enjoy it more.

If you are exhausted with the typical selling, car washes, brat sales, and door to door fundraising options then Teespring just might be what your looking for. What is it?? Well first check out this quick video that explains it.
Many of you know I have been doing my own fundraising for my upcoming Light the Night Walk. So I immediately jumped on and created a t-shirt. Now I have not finished setting it up for people to purchase them but hopefully I will get it all set.
Here is what I created in just a matter of minutes:
This idea is very neat because you the fundraiser does not have to spend any upfront costs. I know you have been there were you purchase tshirts in hopes to sell them and then you only sell a few and have several left. This process takes all the risk out completely. You also get to be the designer which is awesome and fun.
Another factor that I love is the shirts are delivered so you don't have to keep track of orders and sizes! The steps are simple and the more people you think will order your shirt the more profit you will make for your charity or event.
Once you design your shirt you then set your goal and price along with an end date. You have until then to get that number of shirts sold and reach your goal. Teespring also makes it very simple to share your creation on social media so now you are reaching a bigger audience!
I hope you will take a look and get designing that perfect t-shirt.

We are so thankful for all you do! We love you!!
You all know I recently moved to a different state but what you dont know is that for about 10 days straight my husband fixed up the parsonage for our arrival. We are talking about ripping out all the carpet and even replacing dry wall, painting every room, and a whole lot of cleaning. He worked the hardest he has ever worked all for our family. Not only can daddy fix anything but he can make anything too. I sure am blessed to be married to my best friend, the father of my children. He is the best dad for them and it is always precious to watch the interactions they have.
This morning we gave daddy his presents but my daughter also wrote her own song for her daddy and proudly used the "Elmo" microphone and sang her little heart out. She gets that talent from her daddy! I was teary eyed as I listened to her love and affection she had for her daddy.
Happy Father's Day!!! LOVE and Hugs

The Fruit of the Spirit Bible, NIV helps explain the importance of cultivating the nine fruit of the Spirit (from Galatians 5) that everyone should try to grow.
Don’t you love the taste of fresh fruit? God likes fruit too, but not the kind that comes from orchards. The fruit God loves best grows within you: qualities such as love, joy, peace, and kindness that delight God and can make you the kind of person others simply love to be around.
The NIV Fruit of the Spirit Bible will help you cultivate all nine “Fruit of the Spirit.” Twelve special, full-color pages tell you about each kind of fruit: what it is, why it’s important, and how, with God’s help, you can grow it in your heart. You’ll love the handy, take-anywhere size, and since this is the complete, bestselling New International Version, you know it’s easy to read and understand.
I think NIV translation bibles are one of the most friendly versions. The easy to understand translation makes this an easy Bible to read for many ages.
I adore my watermelon cover which is also sturdy and has provided many new conversations when I brought it to church. I had a young female ask me if it smelled like watermelon so maybe that is the next step for Zondervan. :)
I also think you all will agree that the $9.99 price tag off of zondervan.com is unbeatable! A great price for a great bible that you will adore for years to come. Pick up your copy today.
