One thing that has been amazing about blogging for over 10 years is I have made a lot of "friends" along the way. Most of these I have met in person and spent time with and some I have just met online but I have loved watching so many of them go beyond just the web to write books and make products and I love to share these with you.
I wanted to tell you about Amen Paper. Christmas is coming quickly and one of the neatest thing you can do during the season is to celebrate the Advent season with your family. It's a good time to focus a few minutes daily on the reason for the season. To center your thoughts on Jesus and His birth and life and remember why we celebrate. Amen Paper makes the neatest Advent cards that you can string one day at a time to serve as reminders of the the Savior's birth. This year you can also order a devotional book that has a devotion for each day of Advent that corresponds with the daily card. It's a beautiful set. You can use the code "KELLYSTAMPS" and get 10% off right now! (They also have gorgeous scripture prints that would make amazing Christmas gifts!)
I feel like all I really need to say about this new book "The Broken Way" is that Ann Voskamp wrote it. Enough said. You need this.
"She Reads Truth" is a book by two authors I so respect. They are two women who love God's word with everything in them. This is a book that tells their stories and how they came to cling upon His word. This will be a real inspiration to you if you are needing to dive into reading the Bible again or for the first time.
If you love "junking" - you will love the new "Junk Gypsy" book. Stars of the GAC TV show and the sisters who have a store in Round Top, Texas and a line in Pottery Barn Teen and decorated Miranda Lambert's wedding - they have a fun style and the book is full of ideas and inspiration. It's so fun and you will want it on your bookshelf and your coffee table.
