Modest Disney Princess Lookbook: Princess & The Frog

 photo modestprincess1.jpg

A couple of weeks ago, I was asked by my lovely instabuddy, Ashley from Modestly Hot if I wanted to collaborate with her and some other modest bloggers to come up with a Modest Disney Princess Lookbook. I love Disney Princesses, so that was a no-brainer for me! I was really leaning towards Snow White, but two other ladies did Snow White, so I chose a Princess that I didn't think anyone would do, Tiana from the Princess & The Frog! I know, I know, quite ironic that I'm the fairest of them all! ;) (see what I did there!) But, I had this great, lime green dress that just yelled Tiana to me! So, here's the look I came up with.

I wore a lime green dress with my sparkly gold belt. I found this flower crown at Charlotte Russe for $5 and I knew it would be perfect for the "Tiana" look. I finished off the look with gold wedges and took pictures on a bridge over a swamp! Swamps are definitely Princess & The Frog!

The Gift of Giving

This past week I gave a devotion to my classes on Acts 20:35,

"I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive."

I gave them many examples of people I knew personally that are "givers" and how they are the happiest people I know. I've had many influential people in my life teach me about giving. I don't even think they were necessarily meaning to teach me, but I just learned by their example. I want to share some of the things I've learned from watching some wonderful givers over the past couple of years.

Easter Blessings

This Easter I am overwhelmed with how blessed I am. God has been so good to me and I don't deserve ANY of it. Today, most of us are celebrating the resurrection of Jesus. I am so thankful for the sacrifice Jesus made for me on the cross. I deserve Hell, but he had so much love, mercy, and grace that he paid the price for MY sins. He died the worst possible death for me and for you so we can have a home in Heaven. My husband preached a sermon about the cross last month and I have been thinking about it this week as I've been meditating on the cross. Here's a couple of notes from his sermon:

He became poor, so that we might become rich.
He went hungry, so that we might be filled.
He grew weary, so that we might have rest.
He gave up Heaven, so that we might enjoy Heaven.
He gave up all comfort, so that we might be comforted.
He was thirsty, so that we might have the living water.
He wept, so that we might rejoice.
He was wounded, so that we might be healed.
He died, so that we might live.

God has given me the ultimate blessing of Heaven, but He didn't just stop there. He has also blessed me with an amazing husband, a sweet baby boy, a wonderful family, a beautiful house, a great church, a rewarding job, good health, and on and on....God has been good in my life! I know He's been good in your life too! He has given us way more than we deserve, that's for sure! If you don't Jesus as your personal Savior, please read my Faith section and it will tell you exactly how to make sure you can have a home in Heaven.

Happy Resurrection Sunday from my family to yours!
