Fashion Friday: Stripes

Beauty is all around us and our Creator has given us so much inspiration to work with. We all know that true beauty comes from the inside, but on Fashion Fridays we discover the latest fashion and beauty trends that help us to feel beautiful on the outside.

Is there anything more flattering that a chic striped outfit? Well, yeah there is, but we love stripes! Dress it up, dress it down, layer it, you can pretty much incorporate stripes any way you want to. Stuck on where you start? Good thing we pulled some inspiration for you…

In Love,

What It Really Means To Be; “A Daughter Of The KING”

Our contributor Terry has graciously allowed us to feature her writing with our readers. Stay tuned for more contributors in the future! This article was originally posted on Loving L.I.F.E.

This morning I read that after an eleven year streak, the princess costume is no longer the number one favorite choice for Halloween. What has caused this change? I think there’s nothing wrong with calling our girls princesses, or encouraging them to dress as one, but let’s make sure they know the definition of a true princess. Generally the nick name, “Princess” is used to define a spoiled girl, dressed in glitter and fluff.

Several years ago, Art Devotionals was just an idea. Here we are in 2016, and Nuo Liu is selling her one-of-a-kind artwork to teach the gospel to young children. The bible says to train a child up in the way they should go, and when they are older they will not depart from it. What a better way to get a child’s attention than a bright and colorful set of crayons, stickers, and a coloring book! I’m so glad to see dreams come to life, and I hope you visit Nuo’s website and follow her social media to stay up to date on her journey.

Funny Friday: God’s Little Acre

God has a sense of humor and so do we. Let’s get the weekend started with a good laugh!

We found some goodies over at God’s Little Acre that we thought we’d share. Which one is your favorite?

1. THE BRIDGE

A man walking along a California beach was deep in prayer. All of a sudden he said out loud, “Lord, grant me one wish.” Suddenly the sky clouded above his head, and in a booming voice the Lord said, “Because you have TRIED to be faithful to me in all ways, I will grant you one wish.” The man said, “Build a bridge to Hawaii so I can drive over anytime I want to.”

The Lord said, “Your request is very materialistic. Think of the logistics of that kind of undertaking. The supports required to reach the bottom of the Pacific! The concrete and steel it would take! I can do it, but it is hard for me to justify your desire for wordly things. Take a little more time and think of another wish, a wish you think would honor and glorify me.”

The man thought about it for a long time. Finally he said, “Lord, I wish that I could understand women. I want to know how they feel inside, what they are thinking when they give me the silent treatment, why they cry, what they mean when they say ‘nothing,’ and how I can make a woman truly happy.”

After a few minutes God said, “You want two or four lanes on that bridge?”

Created to Create

“To know your purpose, You must know God.”

5 years and I felt discontent. Working as a nurse for 5 years and my heart longed to do something greater. To fulfill my purpose, my calling. To know why I was created and the Creator who created me. I started praying hard. I needed answers. I needed God.

When I was in kindergarten, our teacher asked us what we wanted to do and be when we grew up. I drew myself as an artist, with a purple outfit and beret painting at an easel. I saw myself as an artist and from childhood to high school, I immersed myself in all things creative from dance, music, writing, rapping, drawing and painting – and even fashion. I loved it all. But my artistic path stopped when college hit. I had to chose what my life would look like. I needed stability and safety. My future needed it due to my past.  Continue reading “Created to Create”

I met Courtney W. Linsey, the founder of BUILD Apparel, back in May of this year where we both performed at a concert for our friend Jeevo. I remember asking him what he was up to in his career, and he swiftly handed me a flier for his company. It’s amazing how many brands are out there, but God still helps His children to stand out amongst the crowd. His label is getting major recognition, and it’s still only the beginning. The dedication Courtney has to spread the gospel through his music and apparel are inspiring. Take a look at his website and social media, and be sure to order some fresh gear.

Fashion Friday: His and Hers Fall Looks

Beauty is all around us and our Creator has given us so much inspiration to work with. We all know that true beauty comes from the inside, but on Fashion Fridays we discover the latest fashion and beauty trends that help us to feel beautiful on the outside.

Depending on where you live, the weather is changing and the temperature is dropping enough to start wearing layers. Are you excited to wear tights and thigh high boots, or are you more of a comfy casual dresser? No matter what your style is, you can grab your hot cocoa and be inspired by these amazing fall looks.

In Love,

The Robertsons on “I am Second”

You may or may not have heard of Duck Dynasty. It’s a reality series that follows a Christian family and their duck hunting business. It literally exploded and became a huge success. On air, they discuss their family business, and always incorporate God into the show as much as they can. Here, “I am Second” sits down with a few of the members and reveals what a grip the enemy had on them before they accepted God into their lives.

We’d love to hear your testimony! How has the Lord changed your life? Continue reading “The Robertsons on “I am Second””

I think my friend Mignonette Bailey has her hands in about a dozen different things, and each one is successfully curated and executed. When she started her company Sole of Brasil, the shopper in me immediately wanted to start purchasing every sandal, flat, and strappy heel she offered. Something that I’m drawn to in a entrepreneur is a heart for putting others first and using their platform to reach people in need. She is no different, and her cause is that with every purchase, Sole of Brasil makes a donation to the Dream Center’s Human Trafficking Program to house and rehabilitate women who have been rescued from traffickers.
