      Hi Kristen! There is a series of books by Stormie Omartian that I think you would love! The one I am reading now is The Power of a Praying Wife. She also as written Power of a Praying Parent, Praying Husband, etc… They are awesome!!!
      I am really trying to learn how to really live too…working on my relationship with Jesus, with my husband and definitely trying to become a better parent! You have inspired me throughout the last year…you are amazing!!

    I want to learn how to really be myself. Instead of looking at myself as the way I think others want me to be, I just want to walk my own path and be totally at peace in my own skin. I want to learn to see myself as God’s masterpiece, His beautiful work of art. When I see myself that way, maybe then I can see my mom and my daughter as God’s on-purpose made-this-way-because-it’s-the-best-way-display-His-glory gift to me.

      Kristen, I’m excited about this series. You come up with the greatest ideas!

    I want to learn to truly live for the Lord and walk by the Spirit. I think the rest of the things in my life will naturally happen if I’m really walking IN the Spirit DAILY.

    I want to continue to learn to be a Proverbs 31 wife to an non-believing husband… to live that balance in a Godly way, so that he’ll be won without words, but through my life reflecting Christ.

    This is a good one: How to Really Stop Comparing Yourself to Others
    I never measure up (in my mind) but God is no respector of persons He loves me just as much.

    Hi Kristen! I love Thirty-One too!! I have several of their items and gave several as Christmas gifts! My all time favorite is the Large Utility Tote!! It is so durable, a great price, and is perfect for carrying dishes/food when getting together with friends. I love it and use it so much, I can’t wait to get another!!
