Free E-Book!

  Leaning On the Everlasting Arms is free on Kindle until Wednesday! Get your copy HERE!

"What have I to dread, what have I to fear, Leaning on the everlasting arms? I have blessed peace, with my Lord so near, Leaning on the everlasting arms!" As the words float by her, Meg is bitter. "What have I to dread? Life without either of my parents!" she fumes inside. "What have I to fear? Going to live with a family we've never met!" Follow along as Meg Sonnenfeld is orphaned, come with her as she goes to live with a large family a few hours away, learn why Lissie, one of the girls she goes to live with, is so bitter, and see what happens when cholera strikes—again. Will Meg's sister die? Why has all this happened? Will Meg learn to "Lean On the Everlasting Arms"?

A Bunch of Random Things

 Hi! Today I just have a bunch of random things I want to share with you! First of all, one of my friends on Instagram, Olivia Bell, just started a blog! You may know her from the Christ's Light Magazine. Here's the link: CLICK HERE. Please go check it out and give her a follow!
Second, one of my blogger friends, Ellen, is publishing a book. It's a thirty-day devotional for girls called The Whispers God Gives. It will be available to buy soon and it's available as an E-book today! You can check it out HERE!

  Also, I wanted to share a song we recently heard that I really enjoyed! It's called "Faithful Love".

Lastly, my Mom suggested making the e-book for "Leaning On the Everlasting Arms" free for a few days, since so many people are bored at home. So starting tomorrow it will be available until the 7th or so! I'll link that in the morning. : )

I think Esther 4:14 is a great verse to keep in mind during this time. God put you in this place for a reason. You were meant to live in 2020. Sometimes I wish I were born a hundred years ago, but God knows better than me. He has a plan to use me now, in this time. 

  This is an important time; big things are happening. We can only get through this if we are completely clinging to God. The Bible says those who don't have Him will be deceived. We need His wisdom and discernment, and we need His strength to press on.

I hope you all are doing well! Keep pressing upward!

  Hi again! I know I said the announcement would be next week, but since it’s ready, I figured I’d share it now. If you’ve been following my blog for awhile, you may remember when I used to post A Greater Purpose. It was a story about a young lady, Evangeline, who moved to an orphanage in Colorado. I was writing it one chapter at a time and posting it here.
  Yesterday, I decided to make a website all about A Greater Purpose! It’s mostly going to be through Evangeline’s eyes. I’m really excited about it, and I hope you’ll follow along on my journey!
  You can check it out here:
   Please let me know what you think of it!

Some Pictures from March/Announcement Coming Soon

  Hi! Today I thought it would be fun to share a couple of pictures with you all. These are just random snippets of March. 

Here is my younger sister. With spring coming we've been working a lot on starting a garden. Are any of you doing a garden this year? Has it gotten warm where you live?

Here are some cinnamon buns we had recently for breakfast.

These are flowers from a peach tree; aren't they beautiful?

Becky is getting quite big.

This is Caleb. He's grown a lot since this post!

  Before I close, I just want to let you know that I'm working on something. I'll probably be posting about it within the next week or so, so stay tuned!

All Prepared?

  During these past few weeks, the end times have been on my mind a lot. With the corona virus causing plans to be canceled, stores to be closed, and gatherings to be banned, everything just seems a bit off. Seeing all the empty shelves in stores makes one think: if they don't get restocked, what will we do?
  A lot of crazy things have been happening lately. There's even locusts plagues going around in Africa.
  The Bible talks about some pretty big things happening at the end times. You probably know about the "mark of the beast." God forbids His children to ever receive it. Revelation 13:17 warns us, though, that without it we won't be able to buy or sell. That can sound pretty scary. Imagine not being able to buy groceries?
   During this time, you may be preparing. Whether grocery stores run clean because of the virus panic, or the end time comes soon, you don't want to be without food. You may even stock up so much that you feel completely prepared.
  Whether you are storing water, filling up shelves of canned goods, or learning how to survive, please keep one thing in mind. If your soul is not in the right place, none of that matters.
  Stocking up or learning survival skills may come in handy one day. Perhaps they'll be what keeps you alive. But in the end, making sure your soul is prepared is what really matters.
  After your years on earth are done, you don't just disappear into unconsciousness forever; you'll go somewhere. Are you prepared for eternity?

My Favorite Pins!

  Hello! So today I thought I'd try something I've never done before. I'm going to go to my Pinterest account, and choose my fifteen favorite boards. I was going to do ten, but I just have too many favorites! Then I'm going to share my 3 favorite pins from each of them.
  Just in case you aren't familiar with Pinterest, it's not the same as a regular social media site in that you usually aren't saving your own pictures. Most of the pictures/recipes I have saved on my Pinterest  account are ones I find that other people have uploaded. So the pictures I'll be putting below are not my own.

  My fifteen favorite boards are:

1. Babies

2. Hope

3. Spring

4. Travel


6. Photos

7. Wear

8. Music

9. Creative

10. Summer

11. Laugh

12. Breakfast

13. Laura

14. Cook

15. Life Stories

  I think it's going to be pretty hard to pick my favorite pins but I'll give it a try! First up is from my board, "Babies."









I've found a lot of free sheet music on Pinterest!



I've never tried these, but they look delicious!





Life Stories:

This Pin is about the Meyer Briggs personalities. I think they're really interesting!

This would be very interesting to write and give to your children!

  To close, I'd like to say that Pinterest can be used as a great tool. There are tons of tasty recipes, fun sewing projects, and beautiful photo-inspiration you can save. Like many things, though, you have to be careful. You can easily come across a lot of dirty things on Pinterest. One way to prevent that is to only scroll through the profiles of people you trust. Also, there is a page called "Following." Going through that page instead of your home page can help to prevent what Pinterest calls "Recommendations." Lastly, if you ever come across something you don't want to see again, hold it in and some options will come up. These options will usually include either a "report" option or a "hide" button. Clicking either of those can help.

  I hope you enjoyed this post! Do you use Pinterest? What was your favorite Pin that I shared today?

  Also, I linked each of the boards above in case you want to see more!
