Thriving Thursday 11/14

Happy Thursday!  I hope you’re having a great week!

We’re having a great week. Last weekend, I was blessed to get to go to a semi-local women’s conference where Lysa TerKeurst was the speaker!  I’ll be sharing more about that tomorrow, but it was a great time with some great ladies :)

As for my blog, I’ve been getting back into the posting groove, after feeling kind of sporadic the last few weeks.

I’m super excited about my {Fun & Frugal} Gift Guide for Boys :) I spent way too long putting it together and hope you’ll check it out. There are lots of great links and tips.

We also had some fall crafty fun this week, with this Fall Thumbprint Tree that was a lot of fun, and turned out super cute.

And, I put my Hometown Harvest cookbook from Gooseberry Patch to good use, making this delicious treat:

Finally, I shared about what my boys have taught me about giving and serving :)

What have you been up to this week? There were so many FANTASTIC posts linked up last week and I can’t wait to see what you ladies have to share this week :)

Thriving Thursdays Link Up!!!

Thriving Thursdays is a link up for family-friendly bloggers, who are choosing to THRIVE in their lives. It’s a place for us to encourage and inspire one another to live life to the fullest–in Jesus Christ. Link up your posts about thriving–in marriage, faith, parenting, homemaking, relationships, in the kitchen, in frugality.

Everything we do can be a ministry and worship to our Lord. Link up as many posts as you want, and I hope that you’ll take the time to visit some other participants as well.

I am so blessed by the posts you all share! I really look forward to seeing all of the encouragement shared here each week. Keep it coming! Sometimes I highlight posts here, and I also pin my favorites to the Thriving Thursdays Pinterest Board.
