TNM

I recently had the privilege of reviewing another awesome Brave Girls 90 day devotional, this is the 3rd one in the series and is called “Brave Girls: Beautiful You

unnamed-9

The brave girls are a HUGE favorite in our house! My daughter absolutely adores the “Brave Girl Bible stories” book and wears her Brave Girls shirt almost every single day! She has also loved the other two 90 day devotionals, “Brave Girls: Better Than Perfect” and “Brave Girls: Faithful Friends” Since we know and love entire Tommy Nelson Brave Girl series I knew to expect something great and I was right!

This wonderful devo takes your daughter through the 90 days with writings from three of the brave girls Hope, Glory and Gracie (I absolutely love this aspect because it makes it seem so much more personal for the little girl reading it or having it read to her.)

During the 90 days this book strives to show girls that our beauty comes from within and God made us just the way that we are and we are perfect in his eyes. As a mother I want my daughter to be comfortable in her own skin and to know exactly that, that God created her just the way she is!

The Devo is broken into six sections:

  • Beautiful Basics:
    Showing us that yes we are all flawed but we are beautiful because of who made us!
  • Radiant Reflections:
    Shows us we are sinners but God loves us despite that and will keep helping us fight future temptation!
  • Works of Beauty:
    Shows us we are truly beautiful when we love and help others and have a kind Christ like spirit!
  • Beautifully Clothed:
    Show us that God can change us when we take off our old wardrobe {life without Christ} and embrace him our new wardrobe {life with Christ}!
  • Kingdom Fitness:
    This reminds us that our bodies are a holy temple for the Lord and should be treated that way!
  • Creative Beauty:
    Shows us that we are uniquely and beautifully made the way God wants us to be!

“Learn how Special God thinks you are and how you can be bold, brave and Be-you-tiful!” – {from the back cover}

As with all of the devotionals in the brave girl series each day has a bible verse, a 1 or 2 paragraph devotion and ends with a sweet little prayer.  We have absolutely love this book in our house!

This is a wonderful Devotional that I highly recommend Brave Girls: Beautiful You to anyone with a daughter/granddaughter age 6 to teen!

Book Review – The Elemental Journal

The Elemental Journal: Composing Artful Expressions from Items Cast Aside

From the Publisher…
Create Expressive Books from Salvaged Treasures
Rusty doorknobs, cardboard containers and plastic packaging may seem like trash to some, but through the creative mind, they are transformed into beautiful expressions – equally parts artful book and assemblage. The Elemental Journal will show you how to craft a wide variety of journals to hold your secrets or express your inner thoughts, and discover new ways to use wood, paper, fabric, plastic and metal in your art.

Peek inside The Elemental Journal and you will find…

15 stepped-out journal projects made from unusual materials and found objects, from tree bark to dismantled photo albums to tin boxes.

Tips for seeking out materials for your journals in flea markets, garage sales, and in your own attic or trash can.

Inspiring gallery projects from 9 contributing artists, including Susan Tuttle, Jen Osborn and Jill Berry.
One artist’s trash is another’s treasure. Discover yours with The Elemental Journal.

Her work has been published in numerous Stampington magazines as well as Card Trends magazine.

My Thoughts…
If you love art and creating things, The Elemental Journal is 100% for you!! This BEAUTIFUL book show you how to create journals from things many of us might consider trash! I completely love this book, this is truly my idea of art! I love recycling something that maybe is rusted and no longer being used, into something that is a centerpeice! There are a number of projects out of the book that I am working on for both Father’s Day for my Husband, and Mother’s Day for my Mom!
It’s really for everyone…
The instructions are good enough to help you adequately reproduce any of the journals, but because of the style of the work, it gives room to add your very own creativity and individuality! My 6 year old son loves creating things…gee I wonder where that came from?? 🙂 He already love the book as well! The Elemental Journal would be a FANTASTIC gift for Mother’s Day, Graduation, a Birthday, or in my case just for a friend you know would love it…Kenz and Jenny😉 However, I am not letting my copy go!!!

TAKE A LOOK INSIDE THE ELEMENTAL JOURNAL!!
In addition to the easy to understand instructions, the book is just full of beauty! Each page is a stunning expression of creativity and charm!

Love Art? Always Creating? Do you enjoy having fun? You MUST get The Elemental Journal!
