The Mindset You Need Going Into 2019

    I have made new year resolution posts for the past 3 years, but this year instead of sharing a post about my goals, I’m going to share about the mindset you need to sit down with when you’re getting ready to make your own goals.

    Sun, stand still over Gibeon,
        and you, moon, over the Valley of Aijalon.”
    13 So the sun stood still,
        and the moon stopped,
        till the nation avenged itself on its enemies, as it is written in the Book of Jashar.

    The sun stopped in the middle of the sky and delayed going down about a full day.14 There has never been a day like it before or since, a day when the Lord listened to a human being. Surely the Lord was fighting for Israel!

    With the popularity of the Apple Watch now, I knew it would be nice to upgrade to a model that included some additional features like the text message notifications, which is why I ultimately chose the Fitbit Versa.

    Christmas Gift Guide: Ladies Edition

    Hey Hey now!

    Thanksgiving has come and gone and it is time for Christmas!

    Now that I have a #salary, and am getting older I want to up my gift giving game, particularly for the extra special people in my life. I have put together a this gift guide to help myself, and hopefully you all to start thinking about what is out there. I don’t know about you, but I tend to over think gifts and therefore wait till the last minute, but I declare this year will be different!


    Check out the links below to help you start thinking about gifts for all the ladies in your life! When giving gifts to extra special people I think it’s fun to get one bigger gift and then 1-2 other smaller gifts (read: less expensive). Hopefully this list gives you a little bit of everything. Enjoy!
