DSCN2386More: From Messes to Miracles
People everywhere are looking for something more. They're in the grocery store aisle behind you, in the nail chair beside you, singing praise songs in front of you, and perhaps in the mirror staring back at you. People feel messy; plagued by looming feelings of ineffectiveness, indifference, depression, and purposelessness.
 
Does this sound like you?
 
What if more of God is actually what’s missing from your life? Whether it's a messy life or a messy problem, it can become a walking miracle when we see God anew and wholly surrender to Him.
 
You were made for more than surviving. Old stale religion never satisfies. Neither do the solutions the world has to offer. What all of us need is an encounter with God that sets our hearts ablaze. Tammie has seen this in her own life as well as in countless lives around her. Join her in More for a picture of how you can move from a life marked by messes to one that is truly miraculous.

Whatever the Cost: Facing Your Fears, Dying to Your Dreams, and Living Powerfully
About the Author

DAVID AND JASON BENHAM, former professional baseball players, are also nationally acclaimed entrepreneurs. The twin broth-ers' business success earned them a reality show with HGTV, set to air during the 2014 fall season. Due to their commitment to traditional and biblical values, however, the show was abruptly canceled. The Benhams immediately found themselves in the midst of a cultural fire-storm, but they refused to back down and decided to stand and fight for what they believe.

The brothers' first company was recognized as one of Inc. magazine's Fastest Growing Private Companies, and they've been awarded Ernst & Young's Entrepreneur of the Year Finalists, Wall Street Journal's Top Real Estate Professionals, and Business Leader Media's Top 50 Entrepreneurs. They were also named Franchise 500's Top New Franchise.

In this guide to "momlationships," I use a dating analogy to take us "around the bases" to our home-run friendships, the ones that last a lifetime, not just a soccer season. This is our journey to each other, to finding our people and being other people's people, to learning how to bless each other and not destroy each other.

Annie Lobert was not so different from most girls, growing up in a small town and experiencing common struggles with friends, school, and boys. But her home was filled with turmoil, and at nine years old she was sexually abused by an older girl and as a teenager was assaulted numerous times by boys who said they loved her just to get what they wanted. Feeling unloved, used, and abused, she struggled to find self-worth.

deVine Lip Shimmers

Beauty for the Wine Lover

A lip shimmer is a lip balm with a tint and shimmer – it is not a lipstick, although it can be worn as one. It is made to moisten and refresh your lips, and add a bit of color.

Women love their wine – and they love these shimmers!

deVine Lip Shimmers

DeVine Lip Shimmers are 100% natural and contain Grape Seed Oil, Resveratrol, and Red Wine Antioxidants.

They are Gluten Free, Alcohol free, cruelty free, and do not contain parabens.

I used the Merlot deVine Lip Shimmer for over a month and really liked how my lips felt when wearing it. My lips looked great and didn't get chapped or dried out. I really like the color it gave my lips. I would recommend deVine Lip Shimmers for a gift or stocking stuffer.

DeVine Lip Shimmers are very affordable at $4.99 for a pack of two.

You can find these at http://www.devineshimmers.com/ or your local Walgreens.

Butterfly Bakery: Sugar Free Mini Angel Food Cake & Chocolate Chip Loaf

Butterfly Bakery

It all started with one oven, one mixer and a whole lot of love!

In 1998, I started experimenting with Sugar Free desserts that my mom could enjoy. See, she has diabetes and the choices at these times were limited. I set out on a mission to satisfy her sweet tooth. This was no easy task, as she is an exquisite baker and very tough critic.

I kept experimenting with sugar free recipes, baking cakes and muffins – even creating my own butter cream frosting… until one day, my Mom took a bite of my cake and declared it, “Simplesmente perfeito!” (’Just perfect’ in Portuguese). I knew I was on to something when I started to get requests from friends and family who did not even have diabetes…..  And The Butterfly Bakery was born.

choco loafI got to try the Mini Angel Food cake & Chocolate Chip loaf from the Butterfly Bakery. My family and I could not wait to try the yummy looking bake goods. We had the Angle food cake with ice cream and it tasted great. My family was very please with the cake. The next night after dinner my family & I shared the Chocolate chip loaf cake and we loved it. The two bake goods tasted so good that my family and I did not even miss the sugar. Matter of fact my husband did not believe me until I shoed him the packaging. Check out the Butterfly Bakery today to see all the bake goods they offer.
