TQH Updates + Menu Plan Monday

It is Monday again and time for our Menu Plan Monday!! But first lets talk about what has been going on the past week!

It is a bit of a rainy day today, but that means guilt-free relaxation! We have had a busy but great week. If you follow me on Instagram then you saw that we officially moved the last of the last of our stuff! We picked up BB so he could help and then got to enjoy lunch with him before we took him back to his moms.

Hard Work and Patience

I also had my first zucchini flower this week my little garden is growing slowly but surely. Life is all about hard work and lots of patience, isn’t it? That’s okay though because the reward is so worth it. Continue reading

What Am I Reading?

Paul Sweeny quoteI am very excited that I am getting a little more reading in each day. I was so busy there for a little while that I was not able to get the time. Reading for me is very relaxing and gives me a much needed break. I love getting to explore new worlds that amazing authors are able to come up with. Wow, at some people’s imagination!

So here is what I have finished over the last two weeks.

Different by Sally Clarkson (I also wrote a post about a part of the book that really touched me)
All To Jesus by Robert J. Morgan
Flourish by Margaret Feinberg

Blind Trust by Sandra Orchard


And here is what I am reading over the next two weeks! :

Daring Greatly by Brene Brown

Tiny House Living by Sarah Stewert (since we are now living in a camper!)

Wings of Fire #5 by Tui T. Sutherland (This is a great children’s series, both my boys and myself are really enjoying them)

Dragonwatch by Brandon Mull (My love for this author has no bounds!!! You should check out his Fablehaven and 5 Kingdoms series)

Harry Potter Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling


Make sure to stay tuned to The Bookshelf where in two weeks I am going to look back at my 2017 Reading List and see how I am doing so far! I know that I have veered off my path a little, but we shall see! 🙂


Also, I am thinking that I would really like to do a book club. I would like to read another one of Sally Clarkson’s books. Let me know if you would like to join in the comments below!





What are you reading right now? Did you set any reading goals? How are they going?






The Plans We Make

The Plans We MakeHappy Wednesday!

Things rarely ever go the way we planned them out in our head.

Sometimes, even though we don’t know it, it is a blessing and sometimes it can be a huge nuisance. But if we stop for just a minute, even in the crazy moments that are a nuisance, we can find joy and we can find beauty and peace. Continue reading

Happy Memorial Day + Menu Plan Monday

Happy Memorial Day!!

There are certain men and women who have a courage beyond anything that I could ever comprehend. Today we celebrate and remember those men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice, their lives for our freedom. This country is free for two reasons: the grace of our Heavenly Father and men and women who are on the front lines fighting for that freedom.

We would not be he country that we are without them. I thank them, their families, and the God who gives strength and courage. I thank God for them and that I live in a country where I am free to serve the God I love and free to exact my beliefs in my life. Continue reading

Why Complaining is Killing your Joy…

Why complaining is killing your joyThis morning I was reading a devotional by Margaret Feinberg, I came across a very interesting concept. Complaining is killing your joy and making things seem worse than they really are. We already know that our words are very powerful. The Bible warns us over and over about how harmful the tongue can be. Here are a few verses for you to check out during your quiet time.

  • Psalm 57:4
  • Psalm 34:14
  • Psalm 39:1
  • Proverbs 10:20
  • Proverbs 12:19
  • James 1:26
  • James 3:5
  • James 3:8

There are 39 verses in my Concordance about the tongue. Continue reading
