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. :)

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!

Last summer I became an aunt (again) to cutie baby Axel! I’ve been teaching myself to quilt, but hadn’t made a bed sized quilt yet. So when munchkin was hiding out in his mom, I got to work because my nephew needed an heirloom on day one. I came up with a design that complimented my sister’s awesome decorating of Axel’s nursery – crazy chevrons and my favorite blues! A is for Axel…

I hope he enjoys snuggling in it forever. xoxo
