Weekly Menu Plan {17 November}

Hello, friends! How is your day going? I am tired, in the best possible way. Emma and I had an absolutely perfect weekend with my cousin and her 18 year old daughter in Abingdon, Virginia. Have you ever been? It is a wonderful community. We enjoyed every shop, every restaurant, every person we had the opportunity to chat with, and we especially enjoyed seeing "Driving Miss Daisy" at the Barter Theater! It was a sweet family time, and we are extremely thankful. 

Here is my plan for this week:

Monday - Homemade Vegetable Soup, cornbread, salad

Tuesday - TBD by Emma

Wednesday - TBD by Ben

Thursday - Crockpot Chicken and Dressing (I'm hoping to adapt an old recipe for the crockpot.), green beans, corn

Friday - Burgers, scalloped potatoes, broccoli salad

Saturday - Leftovers

Sunday - Snack-y supper

Have a great week!

Linking up with Laura for Menu Plan Monday.

Blessings and love. xo

My thoughts:
Have you heard about Kirk Cameron's new film, SAVING CHRISTMAS?!!! My kids (ages 18 to 8) and I had the opportunity to watch it last Friday, and we highly recommend it. This movie resonated with my spirit, and I hope you will take the opportunity to go and see it! There is a war on Christmas and it's been waging for awhile now. It's time to put Christ back in Christmas and this is one fantastic way to start. The setting for the movie is a family Christmas party, with much of the movie being a dialogue between two brothers-in-law, one of which who is struggling with what Christmas has become in his own home. Some of it is slow, like conversations can be, especially when one is truly listening and wanting to help someone work through something. I loved the pace. I loved the content. Some of it is funny and had us all laughing. Some of it is educational (who knew Saint Nicholas was such a defender of the faith?!). Some of it is poignant and made us stop and think where we would like to go as a family with our Christmas celebrations. I will definitely purchase SAVING CHRISTMAS for our Christmas movie collection.

Check out the trailer:

About the movie:
This Christmas, have your family join with Kirk Cameron’s family and dive headfirst into all the joy, dancing, celebration, feasting, imagination, and traditions that glorify the true “reason for the season.” KIRK CAMERON’S SAVING CHRISTMAS is an engaging story that provides a biblical basis for our time-honored traditions and celebrations, and the inspiration to stand strongly against a culture that wants to trivialize and eliminate the faith elements of this holy season. So take in the splendor; take in the majesty; take in the story. Take it all in… and let’s put Christ back in Christmas! KIRK CAMERON’S SAVING CHRISTMAS is in theaters for a limited engagement beginning November 14 for two weeks only!

Official Website: www.savingchristmas.com 
Go here for theaters and show times.

FlyBy Promotions is offering one of my readers a SAVING CHRISTMAS gift pack, which includes a SAVING CHRISTMAS poster - signed by Kirk Cameron, a copy of the movie soundtrack and a car air freshener (smells like Christmas trees!). See images below for products.

Weekly Menu Plan {10 November}

Hello friends! Here it is 9pm and I'm just now getting this written, however, is what a great day we had (minus the toilet overflowing)! I took all the kids to the local arboretum and we spent a couple of hours outside, breathing in the fresh, cool autumn air and enjoying nature. It's good for the soul. And if you haven't had the chance to be outside much lately, I highly recommend it. 

Here is what we have planned for meals for this week (some of these are repeats from last week because we didn't get to them):

Monday - Mom's Potato Soup and cornbread

Tuesday - Stuffed Peppers (with ground turkey), garlic bread

Wednesday - Shrimp tacos, Spanish rice

Thursday - Capellini Pomodoro, salad

Friday - Leftovers

Saturday - Hot dogs, baked beans, chips

Sunday - Snack-y supper

Have a great evening and week!

The Ultimate Christian Living Bundle

Who among us doesn’t want to lead a life worth emulating? With great kids, a loving marriage, a successful career or business and a closer, faith-filled walk with the Lord. But for many of us, making that a reality is big challenge!

Balancing life’s priorities can seem a bit overwhelming at times. The pressures of work, the need for finances, the demands of parenting and the resulting strain on marriage can leave us weathered, weary and wondering what really works in life?

That’s where the Ultimate Christian Living Bundle comes in. Ultimate-Bundles.com called in some best selling authors, leading experts and top business professionals to address the most common challenges faced by families and individuals today – all from a solid, Biblical foundation.

For the ridiculously low price of just $34.95 (for the PDF version) or $39.97 (for the eReader version), you can get access to a carefully curated collection of eBooks and eCourses with a total combined value of over $1,140 that addresses these issues with stunning clarity and practical application.

For the family…

The bundle contains 10 wonderful books focused on incredibly inventive ways you can craft the marriage you signed on for. To complement that subject, they added 8 more books focused on parenting and passing on your faith to your kids. That wouldn’t be complete without books just for kids so they also included 8 children’s books that parents can read with their children. To close out the content for family life, the highly praised Singing Bible MP3 version was added (a $25 value all by itself). It actually teaches children the story of the Bible not just random stories.

For your professional life…

You will find John Muratori and Michael Pink’s six-hour Christian Wealth Building course ($77 value) which was complemented with Bob Lotich’s 31-day devotional Managing Money God’s Way. There are a total of 14 business related books and courses including Zig Ziglar’s powerful Born To Win course (that Seth Godin and Dave Ramsey rave about), Dr. James B. Richards, Wired For Success – Programmed For Failure and Untold Secrets for Creating Wealth by Brig Hart and John Beehner. You’ll even find one of the best selling Christian business books of all time, The Bible Incorporated – In Your Life, Job and Business.

To ignite your faith…

Rounding out the package, Bridge Logos and Moody Press made a series of classic Christian literature available from generals of the faith like Charles Spurgeon, D.L. Moody, A.W. Pink, E.M. Bounds, Calvin, Wesley, Edwards and more who wrote about grace, prayer, faith and an overcoming life.

In addition to these wonderful classics, the Ultimate Bundles team snagged 12 heart-stirring devotionals from authors like A.W. Tozer and Nancy Leigh DeMoss that speak to matters of faith that are sure to inspire. Let’s not forget Gary Chapman’s Extraordinary Grace or Ray Comfort’s Way of the Master for sharing your faith with others. Both heartbreaking and inspiring, don’t miss Philip Cameron’s, They Call Me Dad, the story of one man’s fight to save orphans from human trafficking.

So as you can see, the Ultimate Christian Living Bundle is an extraordinary value.

But it still gets better…

The Ultimate Bundles team asked several sponsors to step up to the plate and with no strings attached, provide meaningful BONUS GIFTS. One of the first to step up was Dayspring Greeting Cards who offered a choice of heart-warming gift card packages to choose from.  Another, is a downloadable DVD workout series for getting in shape and maintaining health. With a retail value of $62.99 it includes a Biblical study guide for stewarding your health. 

Bonus gifts alone have a total retail value of over $160!

So now you know…

For as little as $34.95 you can receive over $1,140 worth of valuable eBooks and eCourses that address the issues of life most of us face at one time or another, from a profoundly Biblical worldview. The BONUS GIFTS alone are worth more than four times the price of the bundle! So, if you want to ignite your faith, strengthen your family and help your professional life, there’s no better place to start! All the hard work has been done for you…
