I'm a happier, less stressed, more effective lady when I'm staying in the Word. I do a better job of getting into Scripture when I give myself "homework." At the same time, I like lovely things. I've put the two together into a new one-week blessing tracker based on Philippians 4:8. This worksheet helps me focus on those things that are "true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent, or praiseworthy." When I look at what God has done for me throughout the week, and the blessings around me, my perspective is more appropriate. God is in control. I'm a calmer lady. The new worksheet is available here in my Etsy shop.
I've just released a new version of my Creation artwork for home devotions with kids. I've really enjoyed watching my kids share what they've learned and show me a fresh perspective through their eyes. Their favorite piece is the baby Jesus from the Christmas set. I don't think I'll ever forget my daughter telling me, "The wisemen can give Jesus gifts, but not until after he wakes up from nap."
The artwork comes as a pdf file for printing on a home computer. You can print the file as many times as you'd like. My set is made into laminated magnets. I printed on regular paper, glued to colorful construction paper, laminated with cold laminating pouches, and attached sticky-back magnets. Cookie sheets work well as magnetic boards to go with. The pieces can also be made into feltboard characters, or used for a cut-and-glue project. Get the artwork here.
