Two favorite beauty products

Painted nails are a mood lifter for me. I use bright colors in Winter to banish the cold weather blues, but I’m loving You Don’t Know Jaques by OPI for Fall. It’s a lovely light brown that doesn’t look harsh against my pale skin (my mom might disagree on that point).

I’m a lip balm addict. My favorite is C.O. Bigelow Lip Shine, but Tim wasn’t a huge fan of getting a residual lip shine, so I switched to classic Chapstick, but I’m always on the lookout for new and different. In order to push my purchases past a coupon spending threshold at Motherhood Maternity, I threw in this lip balm by eos. It’s organic, which isn’t a huge selling point for me, but I love the egg shape.

Despite the fact that I have an ever expanding to-read list, I always love getting recommendations from other people – especially when they are one of my favorite authors! Shauna Niequist recommends 20 of her favorite reads from this year.

Acapella Hymn

This guy is über talented. His rendition of I Need Thee O I Need Thee gives me CHILLS.

Strength, Dignity, and Personality

A convicting post by one of my fellow Kindred Grace contributors.

The temptation, when we discover our personality types and which categories we naturally fit into, is to give ourselves special consideration, to assume that our personalities exempt us from sacrifice.

glorious Fall

Fall just might be my new favorite season. Coming from a sun-loving, SoCal girl, that’s saying something. I love the abundance of color and raining leaves and crisp air. I’m not, however, quite prepared for the cold Winter months ahead…

Starting Point - a sermon series by Andy Stanley

Earlier this year, Andy Stanley did a sermon series called Follow. I loved it. His most recent series, Starting Point is also fantastic.

Everything has a beginning. Every person, every idea, every journey starts somewhere. Whether it’s one small step in a new direction or a major event, from that point forward nothing is ever the same. It’s not always comfortable. It’s not always easy. But it’s a start.

While the sermons in Follow were somewhat stand alone, I would recommend listening to ALL 8 in Starting Point, preferably in order, or you may get the wrong idea.

PS – Andy Stanley is funny. I listened to almost all of this series via podcast on the treadmill at the gym. I’m pretty sure people wondered about the sanity of this pregnant woman who was chuckling to herself while trying to maintain her balance on a moving object…
