This summer, I am hosting a women’s retreat in Gettysburg, PA. In a world of excess, we are going to focus on that fact that Jesus is enough. The world will tell you YOU are enough. But truly, HE is enough. He is all we need. We don’t rely on ourselves, or earthly comforts, but on Him alone.  I have lived with it all stripped away, and I have seen that yes, Jesus is enough. In fact, Jesus is MORE than enough.

Early Bird Registration is Open! Join us for this life changing and life-giving event. You will spend two days with other sisters in Christ, tired of what the world offers, and ready to live the life that HE offers.

Simply...Living For Him

Stop Rushing. Slow Down and Hear His Voice

This podcast is sponsored by Apologia

Anyone who knows me knows that I do not like to be too busy. I enjoy the simple and slow living, but even for me, it is easy to get caught up in rushing through each day and before we know it a day leads to a year and a year leads to years.

And we ask, “Where did the time go?”

Our life purpose is to glorify God and that means doing so in each moment. Satan wants nothing more than for us to be distracted by the busy so we can’t hear Jesus’s voice. In a world that is obsessed with hustle, I am encouraging you to listen to His voice and do not conform to the world (Romans 12:2). Live in His timing, not the world’s.

Simple Christmas-Salt Dough Crafts

We love salt dough crafts.

It is such a simple, easy craft, yet everyone loves it-from the little ones up to the oldest ones!

We make salt dough ornaments every year.  Sometimes we give them as gifts.  Other times we just make them for fun.  

Here is the recipe:
1 cup salt
1 cup flour
water added until the dough forms a nice smooth ball and isn’t too sticky to handle. 

Just mix together, and then use a cookie cutter to cut out shapes.

Bake in a very low oven,{ about 250* }until they are all dried out and hardened.

This year we added cinnamon to the dough to give them a lovely Christmas scent! (add a heaping amount to the dough when you mix)

If you want them to be ornaments, use a pencil or stick to put a hole at the top, before baking. Otherwise, you can just leave them as is.

After your ornament is dry, it can be painted and a string or ribbon can be strung through for hanging-either on the tree, a doorknob, or on the wall.

We didn’t paint ours this year. The cinnamon gave them a speckled, brown, rustic, country look.  We liked them in their simple state and left them that way.

Christmas crafts are so much fun, and often the simpler the better.  Too many steps or directions stress me out- and after all isn’t that the last thing you want at this beautiful time of year?

So give salt dough a try-it is something fun for all ages.
