(Yep... affiliate links are included which means, if you buy through me, I get some coffee money ...though not enough for the raisin toast as well. Full disclosure listed below.)
This week has been busy... but it's been fun, too. And I wanted to share some of that fun with you. But it's taken so much longer to organise, plan and actually write this article than I thought it would..... mostly because I've been enjoying using these resources instead of writing about them. Sorry about that.?
So, what have I found? Check them out... Oh, and don't forget the added bonus at the conclusion of this post.
Daily Wellness Journal
This journal is really helpful if you have set health and fitness goals.
Each day-to-a-page includes a meal planner, workout, questions to complete about how you are going, what went well, checks for water intake, plus spaces for reflection and more.
Like any journal, I customise it for my own requirements and use some of the spaces to record my daily Bible verse and prayer points. I love that there is a 90 day planner with goals, weekly check-ins, an overall planner and a weekly food planner.
If you're looking for some help with planning your weekly family meals, you can find free downloadable meal plans with links that will save you time ans effort.
Simple menu planner
Planning the family menu shouldn't be difficult, time consuming or expensive. This Simple Family Meal Planner makes it quick and easy..plus it's a cute design.
If you're looking to start meal planning, this is an easy way to begin. Don't forget to check out the simple family meal plans ready to download and use to help save time and energy. Add them to your meal planner, switch the listed order of recipes if desired or substitute with your family favourites whenever you want.
Colouring pencil basics
If you enjoy colouring pages or Bible journaling, then this could be just what you're looking for. Enhance your skills and learn colouring techniques like blending, creating textures, background and atmosphere, layering, and true to life shading.
This online course is available whenever you are. (You can even do it in your PJs!) There's no expiry date either so if life gets too busy, just come back when you have time. And... this course is currently on sale.
There are other drawing classes that you might like to consider, too. You'll find Pencil Portraits, Sketching the City, Energy Landscapes, Pet Portraits, Travel Sketching to name just a few.
There's something about the deductive reasoning, the mystery and the exploits of Sherlock Holmes that appeals to most people. This devotion reminds us that, while Doyle's popular works of fiction are impressive, they cannot compare with God's Word.
The author, Trisha White Priebe, reminds us that God has given us the Scriptures as a means of knowing and loving Him more. Through this series of devotions, she leads and encourages us to deepen our understanding of the Master and the mastermind.
If you know and love the adventures of Sherlock Holmes, you will enjoy this devotional. But more than that, this devotional is a refreshing approach to developing your Bible reading, and will encourage you to find the clues that will help you learn and grow.
Read the whole review and I'm sure you'll be wanted to read more.
'A cool freebie for you
These days, everyone takes photos. In fact, almost everyone has access to an amazing piece of photographic equipment that spends most of its time stored in a pocket or bag. Yep... it's your smartphone. But how much do you actually know about photography? Sure, you snap photos to upload on social media. But maybe, you'd really like to 'up' your skills but don't know where to start.
Maybe you’ve been interested in photography for a while, but do you still feel unsure of where you need to focus your attention to really improve your skills
What if you could take a test that would help you identify how you can grow, as well as where you already excel as a photographer? For instance, are you amazing with composition, but a little shaky on creativity and inspiration?
If you’d like to see where your skills are really at, I’ve got a free Photography Strengths Assessment tool that you can take right now: http://assessment.ultimate-bundles.com/?ref=a09e0bbec7
Once you take the 5-minute online assessment, you’ll get personalized suggestions to help you discover how your photography can really improve and next steps to take you there. I know you’ll be glad you did it!
?Now you know why I've been so busy this week...
