Attitude of Gratitude

Call me crazy, but my favorite holiday is Thanksgiving! I absolutely love hearing what God has done in everyone's life. I love the thankful hearts. This year in my classes, I offered extra credit for any student that wrote a thank you letter thanking the person that won them to the Lord. I told them how grateful they should be to the person that shared the Gospel with them! I know I am eternally grateful to my best friend's mom who took me into the baptistry room on a Sunday morning, August 10, 2000, and told me how to accept Jesus into my heart! You would think tons of high schoolers would take advantage of this "easy" extra credit assignment...Do you want to know how many actually turned one in... 15 out of 100 students. I was kind of upset to think that if the student's couldn't even be bribed to be thankful, they definitely aren't going to be thankful on their own. My goal this year is to hopefully with God's help, teach these students to be more thankful. We teach others how to be thankful by what we do, so make sure your children, students, or whoever you are influencing sees you being thankful!

I have SO much to be thankful for! Here's just a few things I would like to share!

I want to thank God for His mercy & grace. I don't know where I would be with out His grace. I don't deserve anything that He has blessed me with!

Lady Entrepreneur: Aly's Boots

I don't know about you, but I love entrepreneurs, especially Christian, lady ones! :) My friend Alyssa is an amazing entrepreneur who invented rain boots with reversible, removable wraps! She sent me a pair to show off to you ladies, and I know my fellow rain boot fans will love her idea!

Here's a little bit more about Aly's Boots.

Our unique patent-pending design features a specially made rain boot that has a slight indention which allows the wraps to sit flush on the boots. The wraps themselves are easy-to-clean, machine washable, and waterproof! How amazing is that? The wraps are also so easy to put on and take off. There are elastic bands on the boots that slip easily over the buttons on the wraps to keep the wraps secured to the boots. The wraps come in several different cute designs to help you complete any outfit. Now you can look cute and stylish on any gloomy day without spending a fortune!

Dainty Jewell's: Charming in Lace

I'm super excited about today's post! This is my second collaboration with Dainty Jewell's and I am once again SOOOOOOO impressed with their dresses! I just want to get married all over again, so I can use their dresses as my bridesmaid's dresses! ;) LOL! But, seriously the delicate detail is to die for! If you are tall and can't find dresses long enough, I promise these dresses will be VERY modest! (It's actually a tad TOO long on me, but still pretty overall!) If you are interested in Dainty Jewell's dresses, I HIGHLY recommend them! They are very true to her sizing chart. I am a 10 and the medium fits perfectly.

The dress I ordered was the Charming in Lace dress in Beige.
