Quick and Simple Spring Tablescape

Easter Table 2016 www.stampwithanita.com

We had a blessed Easter with family and friends celebrating our Risen Lord.  It was such a treat to have ALL our kiddos home and even a few extra.  The pic above of our table shows the calm before the storm.  I think this is the first year I actually gave in and used paper and plastic plates. GASP!!!  I know…  I couldn’t believe it either.  But as I was setting up the table Saturday night I didn’t want to spend my time on Easter hand washing all those china dishes.  It’s okay to take a break some years and as our family continues to grow and move out our time with all of them here together is priceless.

Consider it Pure Joy Bible Journaling

With all the new interest in Bible Journaling I’ve had lots of questions and I thought I would share a little more with you on what I’m doing in my Jornaling Bible… and I have a FREE gift for you today!

Jame1:2-3Bookmark.www.stampwithanita.com

At church our pastor has kicked off the New Year with a new sermon series called “1UP”.  It asks us these questions…

• What if life was like a video game?
• As we make resolutions to better ourselves emotionally, physically, and spiritually, what if we could hit the restart button and have a do-over when we mess up?
• What if we had a hero who could give us the life we long to have? Continue reading

Do You Trust Me?

Such a simple word. Should be easy. Right?

Today I’m going to open up and share a piece of my heart along with a peek inside some of the pages of my Documented Faith Journal as well as my Journaling Bible. Continue reading

Living With the Thorn of an Unseen Illness

2Corin12:9_www.stampwithanita.com

More labs for my Natalie today. Since Spring her life has been doctor visits, labs, tests and again more doctor visits and tests. It’s so hard to watch your child who once had an abundant amount of energy and life become stricken with an overwhelming weariness that causes her to not be able to stand. Natalie was diagnosed with POTS – Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome which makes it difficult for her to stand up without passing out. For today’s post I won’t go into a lot of specifics but you can check out this POTS overview of what she deals with daily. Today’s post is not the typical post showing a fun project, but rather a raw and honest peek into my life and heart at this moment. Continue reading

Bible Journaling

I’ve always been a note taker. There’s just something about having a pen or pencil in my hand and recording what I hear or experience that just brings things alive for me.  I have notebooks and journals full of hand scribbled notes, ideas, and doodles.  It’s fun to see that a couple of my kids are drawn to the same creative process and desire.

Although I’ve always taken notes during church sermons and Bible studies but I’ve not really journaled onto the pages of my Bible other than the typical underlining and a few quick notes in the margin.  I had always saved my thoughts for recording in a separate notebook or journal.  But thanks to fellow artist Stephanie Ackerman I’ve been introduced to a whole new world of actually doing creative journaling IN my Bible.  My favorite new group on Facebook is the Journaling Bible Community organized by artist Shanna Noel.  It has changed the way I come to God’s Word each day.
