As a BibleGateWay Blogger Grid Member I was given the op to take a look at the Thompson Chain Reference Bible.
Let's get right to it! What does this Bible actually have in it? This Bible contains within itself a full comprehensive Biblical study system!
Would you like to know how a chain referance Bible works? Rather than me to try to explain let's see Zondervan Publishing explain far better than I , in this video below.
I really like this Bible and so far from what I am seeing in my reading it has stayed true to Biblical intergity. If you would like to get a copy you can here. Enjoy your studies!
Do you want to learn how to water color paint? Well hang on I have got you! I want to tell you my exsperiance with the best water color art supplies and classes for beginners by Emily Lex.
Something God is teaching me lately is to slow down and simplify. He is also teaching me to do one of the things he created me to do and I don't do it enough and that is to create! I am creator and love to create yet I do not make the margin for it. As Abba is teaching me to slow down I am embrasing creating again after a hard 2020 & ruff start to 2021, giving myself grace and the ok to do something relaxing. In doing what I was designed to do I find peace, renewal, reviving my soul and a relaxed release!
I was so happy when Emily Lex's watercolor class kit arrived. What joy it brought to see these lovely supplies as I opened the box. I also received her Watercolor for beginners classes too. Thank you Frontgate Media for supplying this it has truly been a blessing to me on this timely journey.
Emily's truth for today cards are so inspiring and I will be enjoying these so much over time. I love seeing the scripture before me and the cute themed artwork she put with it. Yet another tool to bring balance to my everyday life.
I have been REALLY enjoying her workbooks, online classes that I have been doing at my own pace, and her inspirational truth for today cards! I would highly recommend Emily Lex's Simplified Classes to any one who has never painted before. I love how she teaches the classes from a down to earth basic fun lovely way. I have learned in her classes that sometimes the imperfections make the best art! There is so much grace in water color!
The workbooks are clean, crisp, easy to understand and follow. With every page you are creating a work of art that was simple to do yet looks like you spend hours doing. She brings relaxed effort to it taking the fear of not being good enough or messing up. She takes the lies out of our minds , "I am not a painter, I couldn't make that"!
Here is my first attempt at the hydrangea page in the work book. It did not take me long and it was very enjoyable. As I painted I listend to a few of her techniques videos and was able to pause replaying as needed.
I appericate Emily making this water color learning an enjoyable journey! I look forward to relaxing while I create in more days ahead and learn from her. I recommend everyone try water color at least once in their life and if you do try Emily's classes! It is a great first painting exsperiance and very forgiving and fun.
I want to create with Christ. God is the creator so I shall create for his glory as I am made in his image and so are you!
Reasons I think you should try Emily Lex's Classes!

Oh my where do I start! There are so many causes and issues in this broken world that stir the heart to want to take action. It can be overwhelming. I want to do this post to encourage you today that it is possiable for one person to make change and do something way bigger than themselves with God's help, so never ever say, "oh but I am just one person,". I am going to tell you snippet key take aways from Lila Rose's impactful book Fighting For Life
(President of LiveAction a pro-life organization) on how to fight for what ever matters to you in a cause. I was given this book to review and I am blown away thankful as I am in the begining of my activism days. Fighting For Life, becoming a force for change in a wounded world, was no less than phenomenal. If you truly want to get involved in activism on any level this book will equip you as a great first step. Who better to share key advice than Lila who started fighting sucessfully for her cause as a teenager, saving thousands of babies lives over the years and making land mark, ground breaking waves in Washingon D.C., social media, and citizen journalism. just to name a few.
I will list highlighted key take aways within each chapter of the book. But DO NOT let this be all you get please if you are wanting to make chage get the actual book here.
Dare to fight for a better world. "Each one of us possesses a conscience and the ability to reason, and we can choose to develop our sense of right and wronmg or bury it. But burying it, not doing the work to form consciences so that we know when to stand up for what is right, is a great poverty that will only bring us unhappiness." " By having the courage to stand up you will inspire others to do the same." Lila realized that abortion was the greatest human rights issue of this present time. "If we do not protect that first right no other rights mnatter." Everyone has the right to live. Here are my key take aways from her that you can apply in your journey in any cause that matters to you. All of the chapter titles in themselves are great advise and some need no futher explaination form me! I shared my favorite quotes from Lila, with some of the chatper titles.
Will you become a force for change in a wounded world too?
Also here is my book. I truly belive that every person on earth has a story meant to bring God glory if they will allow their life to do so!
Will you stop to think about this quote for a moment. "Life interuptions are often divine interventions" a quote by Priscilla Shirer. Think about your life how many times did you see an interuption as just that? An untimely annoyance. A why couldn't it wait? A why me?
We can not predict God's plans. We can not know his blueprints fully nor his full plans begining to end, for only HE sees all the moving parts.
Today if you have an interuption, rest in knowing God has this moment of interpution OKed by him, he has already provided the solution. Tackle each tasks as they come to you with all the furfur and honor as if you do it for him, because guess what, YOU do!
He wants to teach us many things and when you are about to be taught a lesson in life by God he does not typically warn you to embrace for it, that it is coming no, it just happens. As his plan unviels more before you in that interuption LOOK for what he is teaching you in that!
Interuptions can be a treasure! Embrace them!
I thank the Lord for his ordained interuptions I did not see coming.
How many of us when we think about God's Word think that we have it ALL and I mean ALL understood and figured out? I hope none of you said yes that is me to that question. Because there is NO one other than God himslef who knows all the hidden mystires in his word. There are clear instruction in God's Word for us to embrace, to live by, warnings as well as promises. We as humans tend to complicate it. And the Word does not need debating because it can prove itself and defend itself. But did you know there are deeper, rich divine connections all the way in Genesis to today? Indeed there is! Not only that from the start of the Word to the very end it ALL points to the Messiah.
Mysteries of the Messiah highlights connections that have been hidden from non- Jewish eyes helping the Bible fit together in a way most have never seen before.
When I spoke of the Word can defend itself it really can in so many ways and one BIG one this book shares with us is the literal Code of Creation. In this numerical historical Biblical code it reveals and confirms the Father God, the Messiah, the Holy Spirit! Rabbi Jason Sobel takes such a rich Hebrew truth of how the lanauage worked and brings it to the year 2021 helping you through the Code of Creation to understand a complex designer in a whole new way!

I just recently read It's Never Too Late by Kathie Lee Gifford. It is not the typical book I would choose to read but the title got to me. BIG TIME! I have been pondering lately that very subject.
I will say Kathie seems to be a lovely Godly person, I had no idea of her walk with God in which she openly shares in this book. I thought the book would be a bit more aligned with giving strategy of how to go after that "thing", or what ever it may be but it was still a heart warming read of many of her memories in of which she does weave fantastic encouragement at the end of each story to spur us on.
I did not know it would be a memiore but I have to say it was enjoyable. One major take away was incrediable. She had a God given childhood dream that even after all the viewers thought her career was over when she Stepped down from Regis and Kathie Lee, oh no, it was only begining. She followed what the Holy Spirit was saying to her to go in to the unknown and forfilingl that major GOD given dream after all later in life! This was truly inspirational to me. Her passion and drive to get things done all by it's self was encoaurging to me!
Truly it is NEVER too late!
Below is my favorite quote in the whole book and it is the whole truth!
