Living with Confidence in a Chaotic World Book Review

In such uncertain times here on this place we call Earth, Dr. Jeremiah's book gives light and hope to his readers. He calls us to live out God's word even in frightening times. This book was very inspirational to believers and was a joy to read. I found the concepts hit so close to home and were things that I could practically apply in my life to overcome the chaotic feelings life inevitably brings us.

Dr. Jeremiah's chapters are laid out very well and build on each other so that the reader really feels a seamless transition. With simple headers like "Stay Calm", "Stay Compassionate", "Stay Constructive", "Stay Challenged", "Stay Connected", "Stay Centered", "Stay Confident", "Stay Consistent", "Stay Committed", and "Stay Convinced" - each chapter has a unique message about how to walk as a Christian in these troubled times.

Overall, I found this book very insightful, encouraging and thought provoking. It was an easy read although the content does make you think! I would recommend this to anyone looking for inspiration and motivation in your walk through life!

Makeup Deal Alert! :)

Hi guys! Long time, no bloggin'! I just wanted to pop in with a deal on some makeup I came across today at Rite Aid!

In the Sunday paper this week there is a coupon for 5.00 of 2 Cover Girl Nature Luxe products! I love, love, love the NatureLuxe line so I was excited to see this. If you like the Cover Girl Nature Luxe Lip Balms or would like to try them - they are 7.49 and BOGO this week at Rite Aid.

The deal goes like this -

Buy One for 7.49, get the other for 3.74 - then use your 5.00 off coupon - to make your grand total 6.23 for TWO balms!

The deal gets even better though because when you spend 20.00 at Rite Aid on Cover Girl cosmetics you get 5.00 back in uprewards! Uprewards print on the bottom of your receipt for use next time on anything at Rite Aid.

So, what I did was use 2 of the 5.00 off coupons - grabbed 4 Nature Luxe Balms that I'd been wanting to try and paid 12.46 out of pocket. But, 5.00 in rewards printed out!

So, essentially I got the each balm for 1.87 pre tax!

So get out there and score yourself some awesome lip balm for cheap this week at Rite Aid!! :)

A few pictures :)

Hey guys! I cannot believe it has been so long since I've updated! Nearly a year - wow! I started my RN program this fall and it's been a non stop roller coaster ever since. I am really ready to jump back into blogging full force and what better time to do it than my favorite time of the year?!

Here are a few pictures of my "not totally finished" tinsel tree in my dining room. I scored it on clearance for $50 down from - get this - $800 and this is the first time it's been out of the box. I am totally in love <3

Same Kind of Different As Me by Ron Hall and Denver Moore

Same Kind of Different As Me is an amazing true story that shares the tale of an unlikely friendship between two men walking two very different paths in life.

Denver is a black, poverty stricken man who escapes from the confines of modern day slavery and as a result spends the next 18 years homeless. Ron is a wealthy art dealer from Texas who does not reach out to many, instead choosing to live his more than comfortable lifestyle. His wife, Debbie however feels led to help Denver and what follows is an incredible tale of love, faith and friendship between two men from whom no one would expect.

This book is written in two narratives from both Denver and Ron’s point of view. It covers so many topics from poverty, slavery and prejudice to compassion, mercy, faith and love. It truly is an inspirational book that opens our eyes to how on the most basic levels we are all so much the same, regardless of our different circumstances. I cannot recommend this book any more highly. It touched me and made me think about the world with a fresh perspective and I believe it will for you as well!
