100 Favorite Bible Verses

On 7/20 Pursuing Stacie wrote: So I have mentioned before (multiple times) that I am just not a daily devotional type of gal. Call it a lack of discipline or motivation, or maybe I’m ADD after-all, but I just get bored with them. The exception to this rule so far, is the Beautiful Word Devotional. I am not great at reading it every ... 100 Favorite Bible Verses

Cultivate

On 7/11 Pursuing Stacie wrote: Lara Casey uses her garden to teach us how to live a life of freedom in the Lord. Each chapter addresses a lie that so many of us pick up and live under. For instance, “I have to do it all,” “I have to be perfect,” or…my personal favorite…”My life has to look like everyone else’s.” ... Cultivate

The Beloved Hope Chest

The Beloved Hope Chest

On 6/4 Pursuing Stacie wrote: I love Amish fiction. I crave all things Amish, truth be told. Especially their handmade goods! Quilts, soaps, hand stitched items; it all makes my heart happy. My daily life is surrounded by technology, television shows, notifications, deadlines and noise. There is something about their way of life ... The Beloved Hope Chest

You Are Free

You Are Free

On 5/12 Pursuing Stacie wrote: Lately, I have been on a fiction kick. I just want good, in-depth stories that I can sink into at the end of the day. (Or while the kids are busy chowing down at snack time.) So, I confess, I wasn’t all that excited about another “self-help” book. Curious, yes! But not exactly chomping at the bit. ... You Are Free

Devotions from the Kitchen Table

Devotions from the Kitchen Table

On 4/20 Pursuing Stacie wrote: I have to admit, I’m pretty excited about this book. For one, you see that beautiful cover? The photography is just as beautiful and plentiful on the inside. Which will definitely help this wayward child pick the book up on a regular basis. The devotions themselves are lengthier than most (3 paragraphs ... Devotions from the Kitchen Table

On 4/12 Pursuing Stacie wrote: Okay, I know that I keep saying that devotionals are not my fave. But, this is “The Beautiful Word Devotional,” Friends. Seriously, there is literally no way that I could turn it down. It is not within my power. I simply cannot. See, I love Journaling Bibles. (No surprise, considering my journal ...

Hope for Each Day

Hope for Each Day

On 3/21 Pursuing Stacie wrote: My kids really, really love this devotional. They love bringing it to me each day, asking me to read the day’s verse and the corresponding devotion. This then, leads to some pretty great discussions; from how to apply what we’ve read to our lives, and especially to the lives of those around us. It’s ... https://pursuingstacie.wordpress.com/2017/03/22/hope-for-each-day/

Happily Homemade

Happily Homemade

On 2/23 Pursuing Stacie wrote: o, let’s start with the positives. The book is gorgeous. It’s a nice chunky book, (just say “no” to scrawny cookbooks), the photography is superb and a good-sized portion of the front of the book is devoted to tips and charts and menu ideas. Which is important, in my opinion. Once I got to the ... Happily Homemade

On 1/9 Pursuing Stacie wrote: Okay, so I’ve mentioned to you before that I am not a fan of the daily devotional. While I love the idea of having a devotional on my nightstand to read first thing in the morning, I tend to only stick with it for about a week. While we could definitely chalk that up to a lack of discipline on my part, ... Grace For the Moment

Grieving the Loss of a Loved One

On 7/2 Pursuing Stacie wrote: My dad was my everything. He was my very best friend, my confidant, my Bible teacher, my hero, my first crush, my strength, my number one fan.

On 5/4 Pursuing Stacie wrote: I am not in to devotionals. I’m just not. I really want to be. I have purchased them before, stuck with it for a couple of days, then inevitably shoved the pretty thing onto a bookshelf and left it there.

I am a huge fan of books on how to be a better woman of God, a better prayer warrior, and just about any other book that teaches me how to grow in my walk with God.
