Disclaimer: I received a a gift card from Family Christian to help create this gift guide. All opinions are my own. I would not reccomend something I do not think would be a great gift!

Finding the right gift for someone can be tough, especially for the men! If you are stuck on gift ideas, here are some great gift ideas for anyone on your list!



Gifts for Men:

  • Be Strong and Courageous Wallet. My husband has not had a new wallet for some years. Like most husbands, I am guessing your husband is like mine when it comes to wallets. Unless it is falling apart it is good. Well, this year my husband has been on a search for a good wallet. I was this one and it seemed perfect for my husband! He likes bi-fold wallets and this is almost an exact replica of my husband’s current wallet! Plus, now he is reminded to be strong and courageous. This verse is important to him for two reasons. One is that he is going to school to be a paramedic and the job isn’t the easiest. Second reason, is that Courageous is one of his favorite movies and this can be a reminder of that movie.

My Friday Faves 9/26

Bringing you my top favorite things around the web this week! I spend so much of my time online blogging and run into some wonderful content from other websites and bloggers. Every Friday I want to share some of the things I find interesting with you. It might be blog articles, youtube videos, or even just a cute e-card.

Here are My Friday Faves for this week:

  •  Grey’s Anatomy came back on!! I absolutely love that show. It felt weird without Christina, but the show was still good. I hope Meredith accepts having another sister once she finds out about her.
  • Oofos shoes. I got a free pair of Oofos shoes for review purposes and I am loving them. Full review coming soon!
  • Empower Kettleball workouts. I got received a free Kettleball and DVD from Empower Network and I enjoyed workout 1 and 2 so far. Right now I am taking a break because I sprained or pulled one of my chest muscles. Full review coming soon!
  • Old Stuff- Right now my family is in a state of reorganizing my home. We are losing a bedroom (my office/craft room) and got a storage unit. I had such fun this week going through old letters, cards, and mementos.
  • Though this song isn’t new, it is one of my favorite songs to listen to when I am having a bad day.

I am a Teacher

Almost done with the BE Society August Writing Challenge! It has been fun. I really like today’s prompt because I was the child that never changed their mind when it came to career choices. I am a teacher and always have been since I was a little girl teaching my stuffed animals how to read.

Today’s Prompt is:

When you were younger what did you want to be when you were older and why?

I always wanted to be a mommy and a teacher. I think my teachers inspired me to teach. I always loved kids and babies and knew I wanted to work with them.  When I got into college I bounced around a few majors, and only graduated with an AA in Psychology. I do have a A LOT of elementary education credit though and if I could pay off my school loans I would probably finish my  bachelors in either psychology or teaching. I think the main reason I wanted to be a teacher is that I LOVE to learn. Even now, I am always trying to learn something new. I want to expand my mind and learn things. A great teacher is a great learner.

I did teach for about 6 or 7 years in total at a private elementary school. I still consider myself a teacher, I just teach in different places. I teach online, sometimes at my church. and to people I meet along the way.
