Wisdom from others.... and new hairdo :)

 This is something I have wanted to I did.  It is like doing a french braid, but with a simple twist instead.  This was my second attempt, and I think I looks great. 
 Here it is from the side.....
 I mean when you have such a beautiful young lady to work with......who can complain? 
And this's just CUTE!!!

OK so I wanted to point you in the direction of a few blogs that have really made me think.....

This one is a GREAT story of a child coming home...pretty AMAZING....and so wonderful to see God in the details...  Moriah's Story.

Does skin color make a difference.......WOW- everyone should see this video.  We have watched the Separate But Equal movie (which I think everyone should watch!!!!), but wow....

This is a post that EVERY PARENT SHOULD READ!!!  Followed by THIS ONE!!!!!!  Seriously - if we want our children to truly understand our faith we have to do more than just hope, pray, and put them in a Christian surrounding.

Let me know your thoughts on the links, but most importantly - GO LOOK, READ, and VIEW them because they are sooo very important :)


  1. Thanks for the links. The hair looks fabulous. I love the idea of putting a 'twist' on a French braid. :)

  2. I think her hair looks awesome! Great job, mom!

  3. Way to go with the braids...! WooHoo!

    Preparing for a bday party- will look at links tomorrow!

  4. Thanks for sharing Moriah's story - you're entered 3 times for the CD and as of today, it may be an easy win for you!!!!

    Lol, let's hope a couple more people enter!

    And, love the hair! I'm going to have to start figuring some hair ideas out here in the near future! Lord, help me! I was expecting a boy to send off to the barbershop with Daddy!

  5. Her hair looks fantastic! Love it! She's a beautiful girl, just like her mama!

    I loved your comment on Storing Up Treasures today. Brought tears to my eyes, the good kind! Love your heart! I replied there, but I wanted to be sure to let you know in case you don't see it.

  6. Really good articles. They have me thinking. And your kids are such cuties!

  7. Thanks for posting these links. I have a lot to think and pray about now.

  8. Love the hairstyle - my sisters & I used to try doing that to each others hairs, but it never turned out as nicely as yours does.
    Thanks for the links -I'll have to come & check them out when I have time!
    Hope the big move is going well - thinking of you
    Have a wonderful day

  9. Such pretty hair on a pretty girl! I hope you don't mind me asking, but how long did that style stay in? Thanks, Jennifer

  10. It really only took around 10 minutesish. Which is great and easy to redo when it starts to come out a little.

  11. Love the hair! Going to look at the links now...

    Much love,
    Future Mama

  12. Checking in on you. You are on my mind praying for you to have a "stress free" move. Can't wait to hear how it all goes.

  13. So pretty! I can't wait until the girls have long enough hair to put in a single braid or twist of some sort!
