  • How to expose the obstacles that will come up, and then make a plan to conquer them.

  • How to stop making excuses and get the job done now — and then enjoy the rest of your day!
  • How to put accountability in place to help you stay on task and motivated.

Available for purchase here or on Amazon.


Hymns for the Christian Life from Getty Music Getty Music is giving away two copies of Keith & Kristyn Getty’s latest album, “Hymns for the Christian Life.” Their musical style is usually reminiscent of their Northern Irish roots but often blended with American styles as well for pleasing variety. Best of all is the depth of the lyrics, full of truth to meditate on throughout the day. “Before You I Kneel” is a worker’s prayer, and “A Mother’s Prayer” will bring tears to your eyes if you’re a mom.  You can hear clips of many of their songs on their website. You’ll probably want to “like” them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter as well. (And if they’re ever in concert near your area, go! Their live musicians are amazing!)

“As we continue to write modern hymns for the church, this collection comes from the challenge to consider not just what we sing on those occasions when we’re all together but how the shared lyrics of our faith speak into all the moments in between. Musically, ‘Hymns for the Christian Life’ reflects both the Celtic and American folk traditions, old and new world brought together, just as we lean on the rich legacy of Church music we already have with songs written for the life of the Church today.”

  32. Just visited the Gettys’ website and I am enjoying their music as we speak! I had heard of them, but hadn’t heard them. What a pleasure!

  33. Wow, it was HARD to decide which on to visit first- but I finally went to The Learning Parent and I have to say- I like pretty much everything on there! The book I am MOST excited about and can’t wait until we have the extra $$ for is “Portraits of Integrity”! I read the sample chapter they had several months ago and was totally glued to my computer screen! And to think, these are TRUE stories!!

  34. I visited Getty Music (for the first time though we sing lots of their music at church and Nathan and I went to their Christmas concert). I had no idea that they posted videos as well as the lyrics for all of their songs – love that! Know I’ll be back again many times.

  36. I think I already entered via the rafflecopter thing, but just in case…. I visited the Auburnlea Farms website. Sounded like a place I’d like to shop, since I’m trying to buy more things locally. I also liked the blog on facebook.

  37. I am always humbled and pointed back to the cross when I read Girl Talk blog. These ladies have encouraged me beyond belief and I am thankful for Godly women who share their wisdom.

  38. I went to the Gettymusic website. I really liked that they had links to all their songs, the most popular ones at the top! It’s always encouraging to hear the words “Till on that cross as Jesus died / The wrath of God was satisfied / For every sin on Him was laid / Here in the death of Christ I live.” It’s so sad that Jesus had to die in order that I may live, but I am so grateful! I also liked them on Facebook!

  39. I really like Lilla Rose website!! The hair clips are so pretty and look easy to use. I would love to get some of these hair clips sometime!
