A Day at the Beach - Book Review

How does a day at the beach sound? Pretty relaxing right? Sun, sand and beautiful ocean waves! Authors and brothers Todd and Jedd Hafer teach us through their daily devotions how to relax and immerse ourselves in the word of God. Through prayer and reflection we can learn to unplug from our daily hustle and bustle and pause. To get to the root of what God wants for us and for our lives.

I love the following passage from the book :
We create so much unnecessary hoopla in our own regularly scheduled programming. We plan, we implement, and we work hard… and get frustrated when nothing comes of it. Desperate and empty, we finally look to Jesus as a last resort — because we don’t recognize who He is. And sometimes, really, all He’s asking is that we come join Him and take part in what He’s prepared and created. The rest will come.
So declutter your mind of plans, schedules, and “to do” lists. Instead, look out upon the waves, wiggle your toes in the sand, absorb the sights, smells, and sounds, and enjoy the moment for what it is — not what it means, not what lies ahead, not how you arrived here. There will be another time for that. For now, just be present with Him."

Need I say more... it's about finding what matters, what's important and how to live in the present each moment with God. Each devotion doesn't take long to read, but it gets you pondering your life and how you can get closer to God. A fabulous read! I was so graciously gifted this book from Tyndale House for my honest review.

It's been a busy week!

 Good Morning Everyone! Today I'm just sharing a few pages from my journals, planner and Bible that I've been working on. There is always something fun going on in the studio :). The pages above are from the newest journal "Patience". Lots of soft pretty elements to play with in this journal kit.
One of our Bible Page Kits "Walk Humbly" from the shop. Almost weekly we are adding new kits. A quick and fun way to do some Bible Journaling.
 Another page from the "Patience" Journal.
If you follow me on Facebook, you will know I've been struggling with working in a planner. I just can't find "my groove". But.... I'm now trying a Horizontal layout, and it's made a huge difference. Maybe that was it all along! I made myself a template and am using my Happy Planner discs. We will see how it goes!
And last but not least, some pages from the "Strength" Journal. It is from our Inspiration Series. Instead of Scriptures, there are quotes with a them for the month. I'm using it as a prayer journal, but with this one...anything goes! And I'm so proud to announce a new designer to our team, Nikki, who is also my daughter. She designed this journal and all the elements. I think she did an amazing job! I'm off to do a few more pages, so I will see you soon! Have an awesome day!
