The one you DO NOT want to miss!

Homemaking Bundle: 6 Days Only! Save 95% on eBooks covering EVERY aspect of homemaking--marriage, housekeeping, kids, faith, homeschooling, health, etc. 80+ Resources!

About this time last year, I remember watching as many of my blogging friends shared about something called the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle. (The name may have been slightly different back then, but it was something like that.) It was this AMAZING bundle of 80 or so books and resources about one of my favorite topics–homemaking.

Several things stuck out to me about this bundle:

  • It was made up of the highest quality resources available on the web and from the Christian blogging community. It was an amazing group of talent and resources all in one place and for one price. I was star struck just looking at the list of authors and eBooks.
  • The bundle covered EVERY facet of homemaking–housekeeping, homeschooling, marriage, faith, discipling children, health, pregnancy, motherhood, working from home, holidays, frugal living, cooking, etc.
  • really wanted this bundle! I mean really. 

The biggest thing I remember about the bundle is this–I let it slip right through my fingers. $30 is a lot of money and I just couldn’t justify the expense.

I missed it. 

And now that particular bundle is gone.

Don’t miss it!

I’m excited to share that even though that bundle is gone, this year there is a brand new one!!!

The Ultimate Homemaking Bundle is a completely unique group of the best homemaking resources you’ll find around the web. All put together and offered at a savings of 95%!!! Seriously…it’s insane!

Yes, $29.97 is a lot of money. Trust me, I get it! But, that $29.97 is going to get you nearly $800 in resources and bonuses (including some great physical products delivered to your door for only the cost of shipping!)! And, tomorrow I’m going to be sharing some ways to save even MORE if you just cannot afford that $29.97. I can’t wait to share it with you!

So, you get ALL of this below, plus tons of free bonuses!

You might notice up there on the bottom row, a book that looks familiar. Yes, that’s right. My very own Intentional Marriage Book is included in this bundle!!! I am just over the moon excited to be included in this bundle with all of these amazing ladies and resources :)

My tip–don’t wait! I waited the entire 6 days last year, debating about whether or not I would get it, and planning to get it later, right up until the very last minute and I missed it.

Don’t wait! Go ahead and get yours now, for $29.97

And! Another exciting thing added this year, is that you can get all the eBooks in Kindle Format for just $39.97. And you can do that here:

Need more details?

You can see more info about all of the resources included, and see the FAQ’s. I seriously want to tell you about ALL of these fantastic resources and bonuses (and I will be sharing some of my favorites in another post), but with nearly 100 resources and bonuses, it is just impossible for me to thoroughly cover them all! Seriously, go see for yourself all of the awesomeness!

And again, if you love eBooks, don’t miss out on this bundle!

And, don’t miss out on this either…

I’m planning to have lots of fun, tips, freebies, prizes, and some fun guests. I can’t wait, and I hope you’ll be there!

When Darkness Reigned {Good Friday}

finished

Earlier today, a friend shared the following video, Sunday’s coming…

This video was very moving to me. The day when darkness reigned, both literally and figuratively. As a kid I used to think we’d gotten it wrong. The day when evil triumphed shouldn’t be called Good Friday.

But the truth is, evil didn’t take the life of Jesus, that could never have happened. He gave Himself up willingly for you and me. Evil never had the upper hand. Not even for a second. God was always on the throne.

The promise of Sunday was always there. 

And sometimes when I read, I wonder about the disciples.  They walked with him daily. He taught them, held their hands in prayer, patted their backs through tough times, and washed their feet. And he told them everything. He’d prepared them for what was to come. He wasn’t shy about His purpose.

Yet they still got lost in the pain and despair. They scattered and denied him.

But then came Sunday.  Death was defeated. Sin was defeated. Jesus rose triumphantly, just like he’d said.

And I think about the needless worry and despair that his followers went through. They already knew the outcome, if only they’d found the strength to trust in it. To have faith and see the bigger picture. Paul tells us to set our minds on things above and not on earthly things.

Every time I turn on the news, I’m reminded that we live in dark days. As I struggle with depression, there are days where the darkness threatens to swallow me up. I see the pain, the evil, and the darkness in this world, and sometimes it seems like too much.

But then I am reminded.

It’s no surprise to Him. And it shouldn’t surprise us either.

In this world you will have trouble.  But take heart! I have overcome the world. -John 16:33

I love this little snippet. So much promise in just a few short words. In this small verse, we can learn 2 very important things:

Trials are to be expected in this world. We live in a fallen world and we will have problems. At the same time, we know that it is no surprise to Him. He holds us in His hands through it all. God knows the trials that will come to us and He has promised to never leave us nor forsake us.

He has overcome the world. Just reading, saying, or typing that phrase makes me want to SHOUT! Yes, unthinkable tragedy, hardships, darkness and pain may surround you in this life. In this world there is so much evil. But Jesus has overcome it. The final triumph is His, and ours as heirs with Him.

My pastor spoke about hope a few Sundays ago. We use the word a lot when we’re talking about things that are uncertain. We say things like “I hope my team wins the game.” But the hope Jesus promises us is not uncertain. It is an assurance.

Just like Paul, who spoke of joy and peace in his darkest days, we can have that assurance. We can set our minds on things above and know that we’ll have the final victory. We can know that “our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.” (Romans 8:18). We can know that when we reach Heaven there will be no more tears and no more suffering. We can know that He will work everything to our good if we love Him and are called according to His purpose. We can know these things.

If you are going through a time of pain or darkness, just remember…Sunday is coming!!! We know how this story ends and the final victory belongs to Jesus.

Cling to that promise.

Thriving Thursday 4/17

This has been (and will continue to be) a very busy week for us! Our church puts on a Passion play every year, so we’ve been busy all week with practices, etc. Tonight is the dress rehearsal and we have performances on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evening. My husband is playing the role of Jesus. I hope to be able to share some pictures next week.
