What is happening to the months around here? It honestly feels like everything is operating on hyper-speed, does it not? Well, no matter how you dice it, March has come and nearly gone, and, as promised, with the close of each month (&the start of…could it be?…SPRING?!), I bring you my favorite blog of the month!!
Favorite Blog of the Month:
Why did I choose this site?
As I was contemplating which blog to feature this month, I quickly realized it was a no-brainer! Nearly every day, I’m on their website looking for anything from new prayers to pray for my family to just plain encouragement for my own self! As a Christian wife and mom, there really isn’t a topic going on in my own life that I can’t find a post for here, on their site!
What you should read when you’re there:
This website is one of the most organized I’ve seen! On the top menu bar, you’ll see a drop down menu for “Topics”. Based on each category, here are some of my favorites:
A Prayer for Easter Morning (&25 Verses to Celebrate Easter) – With Easter fast approaching, I am trying my best to make sure it is represented more by Christ than the Easter Bunny!

If you’re there now, READ THIS POST (& pray over it too)!

So, there you have it! My most favorite, go-to blog for spiritual inspiration!
I’ve actually begun incorporating their blog into my morning time with God. Rather than reading a post all the way through in one shot, though, I usually will save it to the Home Screen of my phone, and each morning, I will read a new section and pray over it. Using 10 Ways to Better Handle Anger (Before it Gets the Best of You) as an example, I would take each of these 10 points mentioned, and pray over one each day for the next 10 days. Since I’ve started doing this, I have watched my prayer life grow exponentially!
