“And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.” – Galatians 6:9, NKJV

Today is the official start of pumpkin spice- caramel apple- sweater- scarf- and boots- season. It’s the first day of autumn! In the past, I defined autumn by its marketable attributes. Only in recent years have I come to appreciate the fullness of autumn. The temperature is pleasant, the sunsets are more beautiful, and the air seems to be fresher. Most importantly, autumn is harvest season!

Here’s what I found when I looked up the definition of autumn:

“The third season of the year, when crops and fruits are gathered and leaves fall, in the northern hemisphere from September to November and in the southern hemisphere from March to May.” Continue reading “It’s Harvest Season | DIY Autumn Decor”

Mood Board DIY | Bedroom Makeover

I love watching HGTV – especially the hit show Flip or Flop! I can binge watch this show for hours. I enjoy seeing old homes being demolished and rebuilt with brand new designs and furnishings. The transformations that these homes undergo are incredible.

I’m so inspired that I decided to do a ‘flip or flop’ of my own – bedroom edition. Don’t expect anything drastic like hammering down walls or tearing up carpet. This makeover will be simple. I plan to re-paint my walls, update and reposition furniture, and add decorative accessories. My goal is to create a cozy, bohemian – style space for resting.  Continue reading “Mood Board DIY | Bedroom Makeover”

How To Make A Jewelry Box

You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.” 

Matthew 5:14-16

God has placed treasures in each of us – unique physical and spiritual gifts. With these gifts, we have been called to glorify His name and draw people to Christ. Often we stifle our gifts because of fear. We fear failure, the opinions of people, and even God’s ability to transform our hearts.

We should not fear using our gifts for God’s Kingdom. God is with us! We are protected by His grace to do anything He’s called us to do. Walking in our purpose is the most fulfilling thing we can do. Continue reading “How To Make A Jewelry Box”

God’s Perfect Timing

“Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill his promises to her!” – Luke 1:45

In 2018, I turned 27 years old. I remember being 17 and daydreaming about what I wanted to accomplish over the next ten years. Needless to say, life did not work out completely as planned. There is a gap between what I imagined doing and my reality, but that’s okay!

The world tells us that with growing older, we have less time to accomplish our dreams and goals. There’s a certain time to attend college, start a career, become a homeowner, and have a family. However, as children of God, these ideas are far from the Truth. Continue reading “God’s Perfect Timing”
