On Trend: JORD Wood Watches

I don't know about you, but I always forget to wear my watches! I have a couple of watches, but they are more of a fashion statement, since I use my phone to look at the time. My husband is quite the opposite though, he doesn't leave the house without one of his many watches on. So, granted he was extremely jealous when the awesome people at JORD contacted me to try out one of their new, trendy wood watches! I was so excited, I had never seen or heard of a wood watch! Of course, I chose the gorgeous Sidney Series in Maple & Rose Gold. The packaging was SO classy!

I'm SO in love with the look of wood watches! They are so unique! JORD watches are all made from 100% natural wood so they're good for the environment too. Since my husband likes it so much, I think I'm going to have to get him one for Father's Day! (Hint, hint! Great gift idea for your husband!)

I was kind of nervous about a wood watch being too "masculine", but I think it's very feminine and dainty! ♥ I am in love with it!

A Day In My L'eggs

Happy Mother's Day to all my fellow Mommies out there! This post is just for you! :)

I'm so blessed that I get to be this little man's Momma!

L'eggs asked me to do a post all about what it's like to be in the "L'eggs" of a working mom and blogger!

As moms, we can get easily overwhelmed with all of our daily responsibilities. Just think, we have to wake up, read our Bibles, make (or grab) breakfast, get our kids ready, get ourselves ready, pack lunches, try to think ahead to what we're cooking for dinner, go to work for 8 hours, pick our kids up, go home, cook dinner, clean up after dinner, do some laundry, take a shower, put the kids to sleep, spend some alone time with our husband, and then finally go to sleep to do it all over again the next day! Wow that stressed me out just typing that! HA! And to think that's my daily life!

"Christian" Social Media Wars

For the past couple of years, my social media feed has been FULL of "Old-time" Christians criticizing the "New-Age" Christians and "New-Age" Christians criticizing the "Old-time" Christians. The worst part of these social media wars is the fact that we are allowing these "gray areas" to distract us from the CLEAR commands of Scripture.

The will of God for EVERY saved person is to walk with God and bring others to the saving knowledge of Christ. If we are living our lives centered around those two simple truths, so much unnecessary drama would go away. The Bible clearly tells us our purpose on Earth.

"For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth." (1 Timothy 2:3-4)

"And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature." (Mark 16:15)

My Pastor often says, "People are dying and going to Hell, and we're worried about...(fill in the blank with whatever is not important in eternity)" If we want the perfect will of God for our lives, we have to start with obeying the clear commandments in the Bible. Jesus himself summed up what our purpose was, "And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself." (Mark 16:15)

If we are loving God as we should, everything in our lives will be centered around brining honor and glory to Him. If we are loving our neighbors as we should, we will share the Gospel with every one we can.

This was just a thought, my husband and I have been meditating on all day today, and I felt like I should share it with my wonderful readers!
