Hello Monday!

Hello Monday (and hello to you!)

I really have missed blogging.  It's a way to journal for our family, sharing thoughts and deeper things that the Lord is working in my own heart on --AND if I were to be honest (and I can be here, right?) blogging can create a lot of pressure.   At least for me.

Pressure to say something "important" or "inspiring", pressure to promote (cause you want reader's right?) and pressure if no one is reading (there are some pretty famous blogs our there and you feel the fleshly need to "keep up".  And I'm way NOT AS COOL AS THEM!  =).

But honestly, I'm done with all that.  And it feels pretty good

I've been in this place before and I've never really felt it in my gut where this blog fits into everywhere else...but that's all okay!

My posts will be short and sweet.  A snid bit from my day/week (like maybe the text of the dead squirrel and talk of chili my husband sent me last night).  Um...true story.  But definitely Baby be Blessed behind the scene photo's and one big thing for sure...a day set aside to post all of my dollie prayers. It's my hearts desire to be one body praying together over every single one of these babies!

Looking forward to all that will come,

Loving well.

Yesterday evening our 4H club visited a local nursing home. We heard stories from those who had horses growing up which all followed the along the same theme.  Horses were strictly used for work --not pleasure!  =)

A silver haired beauty shared how when she was a little girl, she would chase the flies off the horses while her Uncle trimmed hooves and put on horseshoes.  Her skin wrinkled around her eyes as she smiled!  It was like she was taken back to that very moment as she spoke and stroked the nose of our horse.
 Earlier that afternoon as we were scrubbing up a filthy spotted gray for the occasion, I was swaying back and forth on whether or not we would take Obie, our stinker I do not like to stand still mini that I really didn’t want to deal with  and then on to what time I thought we would be home and the clothes I had to take off of the line, and the dozens of ears of corn to freeze,  and the doll faces to stitch...the list went on.  I guess washing horses is like mowing the grass, your mind just runs and typically about how much you have to do and what little time you have to do it. 

But oh His grace!

The Holy Spirit reminded me (again) that to love well is to sacrifice ourselves.

I am so thankful for His truth and a switch in perspective! 

I am so thankful that we were able to share with others something that we so dearly love. 

I am so thankful that it was a great time of blessing for the residents!

I am so thankful that I think it ended up maybe being an even bigger blessing for us!

it moves at lightning speed and this week I've been reminded to  just. slow. down. 

Fair is always a busy week for us.  Well summer in general is very busy for us.  Time slips away and it's hard to balance a full time family and a full time business.  I find myself bouncing up and down back and forth so much that I get frazzled and stressed about tasks that I can't quite get accomplished. 

But when I choose to slow and really pay attention to what matters things fall into place.  I feel so very blessed to be able to work from home and see these sweet faces all day long! 

And all these dolls?  Oh how I love making them for you one by one!  I REALLY LOVE what the Lord has allowed me to do!  Yesterday evening as I turned and stuffed a bazillion arms and legs with my family all around me, I just smiled because I have the privilege of doing what I love!  Family and's all smooshed up together! 

I think I'm slowly learning to just fully step into life no matter what.  We have seasons of busyness yes, but it's keeping the right perspective that is important.

Friday, June 28, 2013


There are weeks that bitter news trickles in over you little by little until it feels like a huge wave about to take you under.  An accident, news of cancer touching yet another life, death, sorrow, life struggles.  I've noticed it comes in waves and this week news of this fallen world crashes over me and I almost find myself grasping for breath.  Fear can overtake.

During VBS two weeks ago we learned all about choosing to put on the armor of God and this morning I realized that when I feel's because I haven't been abiding and equipping myself with His truth.

When we open the Word we open Peace.

"You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you." Isaiah 26:3

"Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace.  And be thankful."  Colossians 3:5

"And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:19

"Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me--put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you." Philippians 4:9

"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid." John 14:27

 "I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world." John 16:33

Our God is bigger than anything this world offers.

Just Stuff

Oh my.  When I think of the past month...or year really, it has been plum full of stuff.  Good stuff, bad stuff, too much stuff, and tons of God stuff!  You see, God is really working deep and when God works deep that's awesome stuff but hard stuff! 

I want to thank all of you who have given grace to this broken messy girl.  I'm simply on a journey to become all that God has created me to be and along the way He pulls me up out of deep ruts, dusts me off and sends me on.  I really have no idea why He has entrusted Baby be Blessed to me.  I am the most unorganized girl in the world but what I do that my heart runs deep for the children each doll goes to. 

As we move forward I simply lean into Christ to show me the way.  The way to glorify Him in every single detail.  May Baby be Blessed be a vessel from Him to you!

Here's to having a bunch of doll "stuff for sale here" soon!!

Seeds Family Worship + Baby be Blessed {yay free friday!}


UPDATE:  This giveaway is now closed.
Congratulations Holly McAllister Poyser + April Emery for winning our Giveaway this week!!


I {LOVE} Seeds Family Worship!

I think its been about three years since I stumbled across their worship CDs.  What I love so much about them is that they take actual scripture and put it to music which makes it a wonderful way to remember and MEMORIZE the word of God! 

Seeds Family Worship has so graciously offered to donate one of The Character of God CDs to one of you!!  YAY!!

Their mission --Helping families know and love Jesus through God's Word.

ABOUT, The Character of God CD
The lyrics are God's own Word, straight from the ESV. It's the perfect way to sing, dance, and make a joyful noise unto the Lord, while planting His Word forever in your heart and mind.It's a Scripture-memory tool -- It's a CD full of fabulous music. It's both! Seeds combines songs that use Scripture for lyrics with strongly produced music that is varied in style to create a sound the whole family will love. Each song helps a child (and any adults in the vicinity) memorize one or more Bible verses from the ESV. This CD celebrates some of the incredible attributes of God. Recommended for all ages.

Songs include:
1. God is Creator (Genesis 1:1-3)
2. God is Holy (Isaiah 6:1-3)
3. God is Love (I John 4:16)
4. God is Light (I John 1:5,7)
5. God is Spirit and Truth (John 4:23-24)
6. God is Wise (Romans 11:33-36)
7. God is Faithful (I Corinthians 1-8:9)
8. God is Everlasting (Psalm 90:1-2)
9. God is Jealous (Exodus 20:3-5a)
10. God is Unchanging (Hebrews 13:8) Bonus Track - We Trust (Psalm 20:7)

released 26 September 2012
*information taken from their website
And one last little tidbit about this wonderful ministry --"Buy one, give one We've taken inspiration from God's perfect plan for seeds dispersal and designed packaging intended to facilitate the spreading of Seeds. Each package of The Character of God album includes two identical full-length CDs. So simply tear the CD cover in half and share a complete packaged album with a friend nearby or far away. You get to take part in spreading Seeds--helping take God's Word to as many homes as possible." --Is that awesome or what?!
I encourage you to check out their website + of their wonderful worship albums of Scripture.  My children listen to Seeds Family Worship and I've used these CDs too many times to count within our Jr. Church classroom.  You will love them too!!
Let me know which is your favorite!!
So this week we are giving away...
1- The Character of God CD from Seeds Family Worship!
       Which includes 2 CDs --One for you + one for a friend!!!! YAY!

1- $61 Gift Voucher from Baby be Blessed!
