It’s been super quiet around here the last week. Anya is in Florida with Nana and Papa and I have the two youngest with me at home. Liv and Liam have been so good for me and I have enjoyed the one on one time that I get with each of them.

3. Impress Them- Deuteronomy 6:4-7
4. Jesus Christ is Lord- Philippians 2:9-11
5. Breathed Out- 2 Timothy 3:16-17 performed by Jared Anderson
6. Your Word In My Heart- Psalm 119:9-11
7. Do What It Says- James 1:22
8. Genuine- Romans 12:9-10
9. Act Like Men- 1 Corinthians 16:13-14

5 Apps For Bloggers

5 Apps For Bloggers

I have started to use apps more to help me with blogging, organizing, and generating more ideas for posts. I wanted to share with you a few of my favorite apps that have helped me.

1. The first app that I want to share about is Evernote. This app is available online and on the iphone, and android. I love using this app to clip web articles, make notes of blog post ideas, and snap photos. I also love that I can access everything that I save on Evernote via computer or phone so I have it wherever I am! I will also write blog posts in Evernote and when I have a moment to work on it it’s right at my fingertips wherever I am.

2. The second app that I love is called If This Then That {IFTTT} I discovered this app a week ago and absolutely love it! I have it posting my Instagram photos to my Facebook Page, Blog feed to my Evernote account, and Posting from my Facebook page to my twitter. IFTTT is a service that lets you create powerful connections with one simple statement:  If This {Trigger} Then That {Action}.

3. MindMeister is great for mapping out blog post ideas! I put what my niche is in the center and then build off of it using trigger words like who, what, where, when, and why?

4. I love using Feedly to give me inspiration! I have posts from different niches that are of interest to me in my home feed. I read over them and save the ones that I enjoyed in my Evernote account.

5. I love to save all my photos in my Dropbox account that way I have them wherever I am. So, if I am working on a blog post in Evernote I can insert my picture that I want to use into the post, or if I am in the WordPress App I can upload them to that.

What are some of your favorite apps for blogging?!?

Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle

We all want to make better health and lifestyle decisions for ourselves and those we love. We want to lose some weight, have more energy, use greener products, create nutritious meals for our families, get fit, and feel confident that we’re doing all we can to prevent serious diseases.

But it’s so easy to feel overwhelmed and intimidated by the masses of healthy living advice out there – to the point where we’re frozen into complete inaction instead!

That’s where The Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle comes in. For the ridiculously low price of just $29.97 (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 $1,030.

The bundle contains a wealth of information from the very finest healthy living writers out there – but there’s no risk of getting overwhelmed! A useful Getting Started Guide is included with your purchase, which will help you identify the most valuable resources for your specific health priorities.

The Ultimate Bundles team has done all the hard work for you – finding the top experts across a number of healthy living fields and combining their products into one essential collection. If you want to take control of your health, there’s no better way to start!

The Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle will only be on sale for 6 days – from 8am EST on Wednesday, September 10 until 11:59pm EST on Monday, September 15.

As if this great collection of eBooks and eCourses wasn’t enough, the Ultimate Bundles team has also partnered with 10 fantastic companies who’ve each agreed to give a special bonus to every buyer.

The bonuses include free goodies aplenty: a bottle of Healthy Mouth Blend from OraWellness, a baltic amber bracelet from Sweetbottoms Boutique, and a starter culture from Cultures For Health. You’ll also get gift sets from Made On Skin Care Products and Homegrown Collective.

There are virtual goodies, too – a 4-month membership to StayAtHomeYoga.com and a 3-month premium membership to meal planning service Tradishen. And as if all that weren’t enough, there are also $15 gift certificates for TheJoyfulGiraffe.com, Strawesome.com and Trilight Health. There is a nominal shipping charge for many of the bonuses, based on each company’s standard shipping rates, and is usually $3-5.

So Sew Organized

iusb_760x100.13754471_dh77

Are you looking for an adorable way to accessorize and organize? My sweet sponsor Nicole from “A Living Sacrifice” has a Etsy shop called, So Sew Organized! She sells a wide variety of things like pillowcases, scarves, tote bags, and tablet sleeves to name a few. Here is a little about Nicole from her shop intro:

I am thrilled to meet you and tell you a little bit about myself. I graduated in 2010 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Sacred Music, and since then have been employing my artistic abilities through my piano playing, sewing, and creating! I love to work with my hands, and find many different outlets to do so.

I grew up in the great state of Maine, lived in North Carolina for 5 years, Florida for 6 months, Nova Scotia, Canada for 3 years, and now I’m back in Maine! I have loved each place in its own unique way, and picked up different cultural things along the way that come out in my different activities.

soseworganizedpostI love all the beautiful organizational items that Nicole has in her shop. One of my favorite items that she sells are the zipped pouches. So cute and practical :) And, as a special for my readers Nicole is offering 15% off your entire order when you use the code: Joy15
