Christmas Gift Suggestions

First of all, thank you guys for commenting on my last post. I found great comfort knowing I am not the only one trying to overcome this runner’s mentality when opposition arises. God is bigger than my biggest fear and is willing to teach me how to overcome.
Congrats to Tammy and Kayla for winning the drawing of the book by Lisa Whittle called {Whole}. I know you won’t be disappointed! (I will contact you through email to get you your copy!)THANKS!

This week I have been knee-deep in finishing my Christmas shopping. Almost engulfed in it all! But I am happy to say – all from the comforts of my PJ’s and my computer! I love giving gifts! I love more the actual challenge of coming up with the coolest ideas for gifts. Sometimes this happens naturally ~ sometimes it takes a lot of work. Do you have those people in your family as well? The ones that are extremely hard to figure out what they will get excited about. This year, I have tried to start early enough to begin praying as to what would bless their socks off as a Christmas gift. Going Shopping with Jesus is a whole lot more fun!

During this time of sharing ~ there are several things that I use on a daily basis that I would like to share with you! These are several of the cyber places I visit that I like to read, get ideas from and just share with friends. On the weekends, I have fun for a bit on Saturday mornings grabbing a cup of coffee and snuggling in my fuzzy robe and reading all these ideas. Many of them are inspirational, but some are just ideas on organization, cooking, parenting, and even music.

Today, I wanted to share some of these cool finds with you guys. Many I have found through these Saturday morning adventures, but others I have had shared with me from dear friends. I hope this will be helpful. If you will hover over the names of the items with your cursor – you will see where you can click to go directly to the site to find out more.

These are podcasts I am listening to these days:

Judah Smith – The City Church of Seattle, WA
<strong>Steven Furtick – Elevation Church Charlotte, NC
Perry Noble – New Spring Church Anderson, SC
Craig Groschel – Oklahoma City, OK

Each of these pastors are different in the way they deliver their messages of the Gospel but all are very firm in their foundation in what they believe about the Bible. I hope you will check at least one of them out!
