Making Memories || Printiki Review

I have always loved cameras and photos, even as a kid. I remember my mom let me have the responsibility of taking pictures of my brother's Kindergarten graduation and I was so excited that I accidentally used the entire roll on just the ceremony. My mom was so upset at how much film I wasted! I always poured over the albums of pictures as a kid making connections from names to faces of relatives I had never met. I loved it when my parents would let me get a disposable camera...

Finding "God and I" Time: A Personal Testimony

Finding "God and I" Time: A Personal Testimony

Totally honest post here. I have always been horrible at keeping up with my personal devotions. I grew up in a Christian home and my parents always read us (or had us read, as we got older) a chapter from the Bible each night, or we would do the Daily Bread devotionals, so I always justified that was good enough for me.

I learned pretty quickly that I could answer all the questions in the booklets on the 5-minute ride over to church, so I really never got into the meat of the Word, if ya know what I mean.
