Throughout my life I have learned the importance of words. How much death words can bring. And how much life. It all depends on how we use them. I have had many people-friends, family, teachers, mentors, pastors, bloggers-speak words over my life. Words that were full of life that influenced me in ways they will never know. And when I stop for a second and think about it that’s the kind of person I want to be. A person who uses her words to bring life and love. Many practical ways exists to be this person. One of them is through the organization More Love Letters and their campaign #MLL12DAYS. I am beyond excited to be a part of their campaign again this year. It’s a way to show up this season and help people in need by sending love-filled handwritten notes. During December 4th-15th, a letter request will be published every day. Notes will be written and sent off to be bundled up into a (hopefully HUGE) stack for the individual to receive.
Last year (see post here) was a blast so this is something I have been looking forward to for a long time. Read More
Eating the same snacks over and over again can quickly become soo boring and unappetizing so why not add a little twist to a regular, plain toast and turn it into a magical unicorn toast?! That’s exactly what I did and I love the results so much I wanted to share what I did with you’all! Cannot believe I missed out on it when the unicorn toast first appeared and went viral earlier this year (…like in Spring, duuh, read why here and here).
What you need:
Food coloring (I used yellow, red, rose, purple, blue and green)
So excited November is here and it’s time to dive full on into sweater weather season, hot chocolate and all things fuzzy and cozy. As soon as I heard about the ‘No’vember challenge I knew I wanted to be a part of it too.
In order to say yes to the things that are good for us and align our priorities with God we have to say no to other things and that is exactly what this challenge is about. Making a list of things you are saying no to and writing the things you want to say yes to instead. There really is something powerful in writing things down and holding yourself accountable by doing that instead of just thinking about it!
God calls us to go. To go into all the nations (Matthew 28). And this summer God called me to Thailand for 2 months. The time in Thailand was a part of the the last phase of the DTS called outreach.
So what did I do in Thailand you might wonder?
First we stayed in Bangkok for a couple days for orientation where we learned a lot about the culture and belief of this country known as “the land of smiles”. A country that is also known for the line “to be Thai is to be buddhist”. To get to know this country we went to downtown Bangkok and visited temple after temple. Not that we had to search to find them, they were everywhere.
Time is flying by so quickly. Crazy to think about the fact that I will be leaving for Thailand in exactly 2 weeks from now.
So many new sides of God has been revealed to me and testimonies have been created.
Today’s post is written by one of my absolute favorite blogger friends, Joelle Angel of My Sunday Dress. So blessed to know this awesome woman of God and have known her for almost 2.5 years now (#timeflowsby). When I started my blog Joelle was one of the first people to jump on board and help me, support me and mentor what direction I was taking my blog. Besides working for RueLaLa you can find Joelle selling tees with inspiring messages on her site.

Location: the very small island of Bågø (such a fun island with only around 20 houses, a surprisingly famous Russian nun and no shops at all)
Travelling to Athens, Greece was such a cool experience I will remember for a long time. Especially since I am such a giant history nerd who loves to read about ancient cultures and the history of other countries. Athens is one of the world’s oldest cities with its recorded history spanning over 3400 years and is home to more than 3 million people today. A lot of the things in Western culture comes from this place. Things like our literacy and written communication, school system, welfare system, mathematics, philosophy, democracy and the list could go on. Read More
Recently I have been reminded of the importance of being reminded of Scripture and things that inspire me throughout the whole day. And what better what way to do just that than by having an inspirational and pretty background on your phone. So I began to work on it. And here is the outcome: 5 different backgrounds for your phone you can choose between. Just save your favorite to your phone and use it as home screen or lock screen. Hope you will be just as inspired by them as I am myself.
