God’s Good News: A Book Review

My home is in Heaven. I’m just traveling through this world.

 – Billy Graham

On February 21, 2018, Billy Graham passed away from natural causes in his Montreal, North Carolina home. He was 99 years old. A spiritual giant, it’s no surprise that timeline after timeline was flooded with posts about the impact he made within the Christian community and the world. He preached Jesus to millions and remains one of the foremost pastor’s in America’s history.

Thanks to Front Gate Media, I received a complimentary copy of Rev. Graham’s published children’s book, God’s Good News.

This book is a welcome edition to our collection and a wonderful way to show our little ones the way to the cross as we prayerfully encourage them to seek God with their whole hearts.

What’s in a Name? How We Chose Evangeline!

Choosing a name for your child is one of the most pivotal decisions of parenting. Before you even meet your precious babe, or perhaps shortly after your first earth side encounter, you’re tasked with deciding on a name they will carry (and hopefully love) for life.

A quick Google search of baby names will produce thousands of options, along with a plethora of suggested guidelines.

Will your child be named after a family member?

Are you looking for something classic, trendy or hipster?

How popular is the name you like?

What’s the meaning and origin of the name?

What are the options for nicknames?

Does it flow with your last name?

How will you spell it?

Will the pronunciation be difficult for your child or others?

And the list goes on and on and and on!!!

These are some of the things my husband and I took into consideration when naming our girls, including our youngest, Evangeline Margaret.

Maternity Photos and 37 Week Update!

So last weekend I did a thing. At exactly 37 weeks pregnant I put on a pretty dress, got all dolled up, and had a maternity photo shoot with Morgan Hayes Photography! 

I had maternity photos taken with my first pregnancy, but not the second, and I was on the fence this time around. For no good reason, really. I know this precious rainbow baby will complete our family and I wanted to make this last pregnancy memorable. However, I kept putting the idea off until one day it hit me. I need to do this!! I knew I would want these photos in honor of this special time in our lives and I’m so glad I went for it.
