IS 40:31

Here’s Isaiah 40:31!

“but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”



I’m excited about our kids learning this one. It’s their Pop’s favorite verse, AND my most favorite band, MuteMath, has a song that goes with it perfectly. It’s Peculiar People and you can play it below. Did you know that my man and I went to their Dallas concert?! It was fantastic! Every time I see this pic I can’t believe I was actually there! :)

Maybe I’m alone, but when I want to remake a yum recipe, it’s a pain to go find it in all my cookbooks and cooking magazines. And sometimes I flip through my cookbooks and find one I completely forgot about. I’ve bookmarked, torn out, and copied recipes elsewhere, but that took loads of time and wasn’t very organized. Does that happen to you?

But then I had an idea for this recipe finder where I can scribble down the recipe name, location, page, and some notes! Now I have a quick reference to find those great recipes my family keeps wondering if I’ll ever make again ;)


The header is blank so you can categorize however you’d like. Maybe a “chocolate” category is better than just “desserts”!



I printed on bright white, smooth, 80# cover (card stock) and used my round corner punch after printing. You can also paperclip your various pages, or punch a hole and use a post screw to keep them all together.



I hope this helps you get those “nummies” (as my youngest calls it) whipped up and on the table!


Let me know how it works out for you, or if you have any suggestions. :)

PS 32:8

Our family has been memorizing Bible verses for several months. Every week or two I pick a verse (sometimes influenced by an upcoming holiday) and design it to be relevant with the content. Every word is on a separate piece of paper and I hide them around our living and dining room… then each kid takes a turn finding a word! Then my oldest gets her Bible, looks up the verse, and they all help put the words in order. We use poster putty to stick each word on our front door. I love this because they are all able to participate (my kids range from 2-9yrs), it’s a game, the design helps make memorizing easier, it promotes great discussions, and best of all, they’re hiding God’s word in their hearts! And I’ve made it digital so you can print it too. This week’s verse is Psalm 32:8! “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you.”:)



I print on 80# cover (card stock), smooth, bright white paper, and cut out with my Fiskar scissors.

P.S. In the past I’ve handwritten and cut each image/word out freehand. I’ll re-do our past verses in a digital format later, and post so you can have those too. :)

I’ve created a FREE printable weekly planner just for you! I’ve been trying it out and hope it helps you stay as organized as it has me. I’m not naturally the most organized person, and am completely dependent on my list. They’re usually on a kid’s scrap scribbled-marker-art-reject paper. (I’ve printed this planner on those too and it’s sweet seeing their doodles – and yay for green!) But having my planner/grocery/errands list more structured with this design has been very nice.

The planner is 2-sided, so print one page, flip, feed back through and print the second page.



I carry mine everywhere – usually in my pocket, and it looks like a wrinkled wad by the end of the week… :) But having four kids (and one with lots of food allergies) means I shop at a zillion stores, and this planner saves me! I hope it does for you too – and I’d love to hear how you like it!

P.S. I’m working on a recipe organizer too, so check back soon!

As a thank you for reading this, I’ve attached a free “thank you” postcard! Since I’m half Swedish, there’s a little Swedish vocab for you too :) And who doesn’t want to learn a little Swedish?!

I’ve printed mine on a bright white, smooth, uncoated 80# cover weight (cardstock) paper. Just print page 1 of the PDF, flip over and re-feed, printing page 2. I’ve also included a few pics showing how to trim them. (Hint: Cut from crop mark to crop mark – not all the way to the edge of the paper, so you don’t cut off your marks when you rotate the paper.) You just need a self healing mat, xacto, ruler and corner punch.

Enjoy! And I’d love to hear how it works out for you!
