God's Gift... a study on Created to be his Helpmeet

What exactly is a Help Meet? Well, honestly it was something that I(Amy), spent numerous years not doing well. My husband and I fell in love as teenagers and married as teenagers as well. Neither of us saved. If you haven't accepted Jesus as Savior, please take some time to read here. Two unsaved, teenage, sinners, went about the business of having kids and moving forward in marriage however we knew how. Neither of us being brought up knowing exactly what a godly, christ-centered marriage looked like. To keep an extremely long story short, we both ended up coming to know Christ and through the help of the Holy Spirit, which dwells in us
By the Holy Spirit who dwells within us
 and wisdom granted from our Heavenly Father  
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him
 God led us to resources to help us in our walk with Him. One of those resources I was led to and has helped me immensely is the book, Created to be his Help Meet by Debi Pearl. And as we mature in our faith, we are to share the knowledge we have with other women 
and so train the young women to love their husbands and children
Thus, my sister and I feel led to share what we're gleaning week-by-week throughout the above mentioned book. SO, what is a help meet? Help-Meet:
(Heb. 'ezer ke-negdo; i.e., "a help as his counterpart" = a help suitable to him), a wife (Gen 2:18-20). We are helpers that have been suited for our own husbands. 
For man was not made from woman, but woman from man.
Since us women have been created to be helpers to our man, let's ponder the question, In what ways can we be helpers to our husbands? One example would be to be there to help when he needs. I was recently handed a list of things my husband needed me to accomplish for him that day. He generally doesn't give me lists so I knew that he really needed my help in these things. Well it just so happened that he gave me a list on my busiest day of the week. Not only did I need to fulfill my role as homemaker, home school mom, taking two kiddos to classes that day, so on and so on BUT I had this list! Like I referenced earlier, thanks be to God for giving me the Holy Spirit and wisdom. I graciously accepted that list and prayed for God to order my day and allow me the grace to accomplish what needed to be done. He did. That day ran a little differently. After bible study, I went about fulfilling the items on that list and then accomplishing other necessary tasks that day. Let me tell you, that husband of mine was blessed! Anyone and everyone around could tell how much he appreciated that I had put him first and been the helper God had called me to be.

Clutter OUT Clothes IN (Declutter your closet)

So my fabulous sister (Amy) is always super great at keeping me in check. So it was no surprise when she asked me to pick a dirty spot in my house (a Fire) and put it out. So my fire was my closet and its no surprise to people that know me I'm a bit meticulous when it comes to my closet space, hey I only have to see it multiple times a day and pick out my clothes that's going to represent my feeling for the day I should be overly inspired to keep it tidy. That is why today I'm bringing in simple steps to de-clutter your closet..

Step 1
Clear out- Those clothes that you don't want, get rid of them . They don't fit, bye bye and if you still enjoy them set them on your bed for later.

Step 2
Clean up-  Vacuum, sweep, clean and heck beautify if you want to add some bedazzle to the wall now's your shot, some paint here and there doesn't hurt either. If not just clean :-)

Step 3
Plan- You should be a little sweaty now so here's your chance to take a break; really analyze how you want your closet to look and how it can best suit your needs. TIPS If you don't have drawers in your closet and can't get them now cute baskets on the shelf help to keep your small items in check. If you don't like hanging certain items no fears find an area in the closet that's perfect for hosting folded items.

Step 4
Utilize- Lets get back to work and utilize that beautiful freshly cleaned space. Hang nice shirts where they are easily accessible, that's what you will probably grab the most. Next your pants/jeans; If your like me you don't wear dresses It's good to hang those in the back, my dresses are actually in a totally separate closet(due to lack of wear.)Then shoes lets put the ones you use most toward the floor the shoes you don't wear as much can be placed nicely on a shelf. Now my bags are in the separate closet I mention earlier a nice trick is to hang them on hangers toward the back of the closet.

Step 5
Decorate- Now's your chance to do little changes here and there and also add your own flare maybe a plant here a mirror there whatever you think looks nice. Remember this is your area that is essentially going to start everyday so ask yourself while your decorating," will this brighten my day?"

Valentines Day Crafts!!

OK I have been searching for some great craft ideas. First let me tell you what I did for Valentines day with my little man... I cut out shapes of trucks and trains (his favs right now)Then let him cut out circles and squares to glue onto the vehicles and we wrote the names of the receivers to make his valentines cards. Then tape a little goodie on there and you have a homemade valentine. I Also got the standard candy hearts which there are lots of alternatives.. I like lollipops made with fruit juice instead of sugar. I snagged a hot wheels car from Walmart they have these cute mystery packs for a little over $1 that has a surprise car with matching sticker,(Which is awesome for toddler boys.) So enough about me lets take a look at some of these awesome crafts I've seen flying around.
Hersey kiss mice!
