FREE PRINTABLE – He is Risen!

Are you ready for Easter?

I am!

Well, not actually. I haven’t even thought about plans for the day other than church, and we usually host dinner for our family at our house. Other details have not been worked out either. But hey, would anyone expect any different from me? Not likely.

I am ready for Easter in the spiritual sense, though. For years Christmas was my favorite holiday, but in the last few years Easter has become the frontrunner in the favorite of all days of the year. Christmas celebrates Jesus coming to earth, but Easter is when we celebrate Him overcoming death, hell, and the grave when He became the ultimate sacrifice for all of our sins and on the 3rd day resurrected from the dead. He did it all just for us. He is Risen!!!

Nothing excites me more than knowing my Savior paid my complete debt… especially when I am far from worthy.

I decided to make a simple little printable based on Luke 24:5-7.

Then, as they were afraid and bowed their faces to the earth, they said to them, “Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen! Remember how He spoke to you when He was still in Galilee, saying, ‘The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.’

Isn’t it wonderful? Couldn’t you just shout? He is risen! Hallelujah! Thank you, Jesus!

I want to share this joy with everyone! So I’m sharing this free printable as an Easter gift for each of you.

Scriptures To Encourage Healthy Living (With Free Printable)

I’ve been trying really hard the last few months to get in shape. With the help of Plexus, I have lost 54 lbs since the last week of April.  I also have less pain (MUCH less) from my joints/fibromyalgia issues. Since losing all that weight, I am feeling more inspired to embark on other paths to becoming healthier. I’m trying to get in an exercise routine, drink more water, and take better care of myself in other ways as well.

Now, in no way do I claim to be doing everything I can (though I would like to), but I am trying. I decided to put some scriptures to encourage healthy living up around the house in strategic places to remind me of the changes I am making. Since I was typing these up for myself, I thought maybe someone else would like to have a copy too.

<a href=Galatians 5:22-23 - Raising Sticky Hands To Heaven" width="550" height="439" srcset="http://raisingstickyhands.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/Galatians-5-22-23-Raising-Sticky-Hands-To-Heaven.png 550w, http://raisingstickyhands.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/Galatians-5-22-23-Raising-Sticky-Hands-To-Heaven-300x239.png 300w" sizes="(max-width: 550px) 100vw, 550px" />

The reason I chose Galatians 5:22-23 is pretty self-explanatory, especially since I have self-control in a larger font than any of the other words. I am placing this passage on my refrigerator and inside the cabinet for our pantry. With this scripture in my face every time I feel like snacking, I can stop and think about what and why I am reaching for something to eat. Am I really hungry, or am I bored, thirsty, emotional, etc? Should I really be getting chips? Because occasionally that is okay, but maybe I should be cutting up some veggies instead. If I am reminded to use self-control with my eating, a lot of good can be done instead of “just this once” turning into “just this time every day at the exact minute”.

<a href=Ecclesiastes 10:18 - Raising Sticky Hands To Heaven" width="550" height="452" srcset="http://raisingstickyhands.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/Ecclesiastes-10-18-Raising-Sticky-Hands-To-Heaven.png 550w, http://raisingstickyhands.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/Ecclesiastes-10-18-Raising-Sticky-Hands-To-Heaven-300x246.png 300w" sizes="(max-width: 550px) 100vw, 550px" />

Ecclesiastes 10:18 is going above my tv, and maybe inside my Kindle case. There are many times that I could be doing something active, but would rather do something else that does not use a single muscle. Now, as I stated above, I do have joint issues and fibromyalgia. However, that does not give me a free pass to never work out at all. There is also a kind of funny/embarrassing aspect to why I chose this scripture: I need to be reminded to do kegels. I don’t want my house leaking… I don’t think anyone else wants my house leaking either. In fact, it’s pretty frowned upon. 😉 No reason a few can’t be done every time I sit down in the living room, right?

<a href=Proverbs 31:30 - Raising Sticky Hands To Heaven" width="550" height="450" srcset="http://raisingstickyhands.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/Proverbs-31-30-Raising-Sticky-Hands-To-Heaven.png 550w, http://raisingstickyhands.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/Proverbs-31-30-Raising-Sticky-Hands-To-Heaven-300x245.png 300w" sizes="(max-width: 550px) 100vw, 550px" />

I am always beating myself up for my appearance. Saying that I lack self-esteem is an understatement. But I know deep down in my heart that I am beautiful in God’s sight. Proverbs 31:30 is going to be taped to the mirror on my vanity, so that when I am preparing to leave the house I will read those words and not walk out the door in a foul mood. It will also make me sing “That Kinda Girl” by DC Talk. Who doesn’t love a little memory from the Free At Last album in their day? If that doesn’t put me in a good mood, well, something must be really wrong that day.

<a href=John 7:38 - Raising Sticky Hands To Heaven" width="550" height="471" srcset="http://raisingstickyhands.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/John-7-38-Raising-Sticky-Hands-To-Heaven.png 550w, http://raisingstickyhands.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/John-7-38-Raising-Sticky-Hands-To-Heaven-300x256.png 300w" sizes="(max-width: 550px) 100vw, 550px" />

Can you guess where I will be taping John 7:38? If you guessed inside the fridge, you guessed right. This is for a couple of reasons: to drink more water and to remember who the life-giver is… and if I want to be healthy in this life I need to take care of His temple. I have always hated water. The taste, the way my stomach feels after drinking it, just everything. I don’t know why. But if I add a few flavor drops or infuse it with water, I handle it fine. Whatever it takes, I need to have more of it for many reasons.

 

Soon I may add more scriptures to encourage healthy living to my decor, but for now these are the 4 I am going to focus on. I still have a lot of weight to lose, but I know that I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. (Like how I through Philippians 4:13 in there? Did you see my post about that on our Facebook page yesterday? Maybe next I will put up some scriptures to encourage housework…)

Free Galatians 6:9 Autumn Printable

With all the change going on in our home, my Fall (or Autumn, if that is your preferred term, 😉 ) decor is more than lacking this year. It’s not that I don’t want to do it. It’s that I’m just way too distracted.

At the same time, I have been working to implement more scripture around our home. I have scriptures for encouragement, fitness, healing, and more.

When I was trying to think of a verse that would fit for Fall (um, Autumn), there was one that stood out in my mind. Not only is it fitting for the season of the year we are in, but perfect for this season of my life.

 

And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

Galatians 6:9

Since the house is lacking the leaves, pumpkins, and scarecrows at the moment, I decided to make a printable to frame. (I would say that I am going to decoupage it on to a sheet of wood, but obviously I’m not sure I even have the time to do that right now. Maybe next year…) So that is what I did, I made a simple printable with Galatians 6:9 using Fall (Okay, Autumn) colors that I can throw in a frame and place on my piano or coffee bar.

A great reminder, pretty, and a way to help our family memorize the scripture and put it to work.

So while I don’t claim that it is gorgeous or fancy, I thought I would share it with all of you. Just in case there is someone else out there, right now, that needs this reminder as well.

Happy Fall/Autumn and God bless!

The Ultimate Packing List For Labor And Delivery – With FREE Printable

Hello there RSHTH readers!  I’m Stephanie from Crayon Marks and Tiger Stripes, and I am finally making my debut as a new contributor!  I am so excited to be a part of this awesome group of gals.  I cannot wait to share with you what God has placed on my heart and to encourage you in your adventure of Christian parenting!

(Editor’s note: Stephanie actually wrote this post back in August. Due to different things that came up on my end, this post was not put up until now. (Sorry, Stephanie!) Please go to Crayon Marks and Tiger Stripes and catch up on what all Stephanie has been up to. Remember to keep her in your prayers!)

As you may have gathered from other posts, I’m one of the preggos.  I am halfway through my second trimester with my second baby, but let me tell you about the first trimester…sick.  Sick and tired.  Sick and tired every day…all day!  Oh my goodness, the second trimester is GLORIOUS!  I’m only a few weeks away from the 3rd trimester, where things will get less glorious as I become more uncomfortable and start the ever so fun waddle walk.  That just means I’m that much closer to meeting this sweet baby girl so I say…BRING ON THE WADDLE!

Everything about pregnancy is unpredictable.  Same goes for delivery.  Unless you are having a caesarean, you have no idea when or how quickly baby is going to come.  Despite the unpredictableness (yes, that’s a word!) of growing tiny humans and delivering them into the world, you can prepare for the big day by having a bag packed and ready to go weeks before that baby decides to make his/her big debut.  Wondering what to pack?  Here are some essentials to pack for labor and delivery:

 

The Ultimate Packing List For Labor and Delivery With FREE Printable from Raising Sticky Hands To Heaven - RaisingStickyHands.com

 

For Mommy:

  • Id/insurance card/hospital paperwork- You will likely visit the place you are going to deliver before baby is born.  Fill out all paperwork ahead of time because when you are breathing through contractions, you don’t want to be filling out papers.  Ain’t nobody got time for that!

 

  • Comfortable outfits/pajamas/underwear/socks/outfit to wear home- You will be in a hospital gown during delivery (unless you buy one of those fancy laboring gowns) so bring 2-3 days worth of comfy clothes.  You will want out of that gown as soon as you can be out of it!

 

  • Comfortable pillow- BRING YOUR OWN PILLOW!  Hospital pillows are flat, flat, flat.  They are possibly one of the most uncomfortable pieces of bedding to ever exist.  You will be thankful that you brought yours.

 

  • Nursing bra – If you are going to breastfeed, a nursing bra is a must.  Whoever created those was a genius.  Easy accessibility!

 

  • Slippers- Hopefully you escaped the ever so dreaded pregnancy cankles, but if you haven’t, don’t fret.  Most women experience swelling in their legs and feet during the third trimester.  It goes away quickly after delivery, but bring some slippers to keep those tootsies comfortable.

 

  • Toiletries- The hospital provides toiletries, but it is a generic kind. I highly suggest bringing your own toothbrush/toothpaste/floss/deodorant/shampoo and conditioner and whatever other beauty products you want.  Whatever you do, pack lip balm!  With all that Lamaze breathing you will be doing, you will be so thankful that you packed lip balm!

For baby:

  • Outfits- It’s the moment you have been waiting for. Putting those sweet outfits on baby! Pack at least 2-3 outfits and maybe a few more, depending on how long your doctor plans to keep you in the hospital.  Packing baby clothes is honestly the best part of the packing 😉

 

  • Baby book- As a nursery nurse, I have done many handprints and footprints on birth certificates.  It is a skill!!  If you bring your baby book, you can ask your nurse to put those sweet footprints and handprints in your book, and I bet she will be glad to do it!

 

  • 2-3 swaddling blankets- The hospital will provide these, but it’s just fun to bring your blankies for baby.  And oh do babies love to be swaddled!

 

  • Nursing pillow- If you are breastfeeding, the nursing pillows can be a major lifesaver. If you forget it, you can always use the flat hospital pillows. 😉

 

  • Baby nail clippers and baby mittens- Babies tend to be born with long fingernails. Nurses are generally not allowed to cut baby’s nails so be sure to bring your own nail clippers and mittens to cover those sweet hands from scratching their face.

 

  • Baby hat- Babies lose heat from their head rather quickly.  That is why the nurses usually put a hat on them right after they are born.  If your room is cold, your baby will be much happier with a hat on.

 

  • Car seat- You can’t leave the hospital without it! If you need help, most nursery nurses are trained in car seat safety and can help you.

Tech:

  • Phone/Camera/tablet and charger- You will want to make “the baby is here!” phone calls/texts so don’t forget your phone and charger! Some hospitals do professional photos of your newborn as a part of their service, but if they don’t, be sure to bring your camera and charger.

For Siblings:

  • Busy bag- If you have younger children, make a busy bag ahead of time with things for them to do. Search pinterest for busy bags and you will certainly find something to entertain your toddler.  I really feel that it is important for them to be present and able to bond with the baby during those first few days, but as we all know, toddlers are busy people!

 

  • Gift from new baby to sibling- My 3 year old has already been putting together a gift bag for his baby sister (with mommy’s help, of course!)  He is so excited to give these gifts to her!  How surprised will he be when baby has a gift for him too!?

These are the essential things you will need.  Take it from a mom who has been there/done that and is about to do it again, and an RN trained in OB/nursery.  I got ya covered, sweet mommas!

Now that you know what to bring, it’s time to start packing.  As a gift to you, we want you to have this adorable Labor & Delivery Packing List.  Share it, print it, and start packing!

Emily’s Outline (Recapturing Your Beautiful – A Fitness Challenge From walkingredeemed.org)

Starting The Year Off Right

 

WalkingRedeemed.org is hosting an 8 week fitness challenge (Recapturing Your Beautiful) and I’m so excited to be joining! This fitness challenge is spiritual as well as physical and comes with the chance to win awesome prizes weekly. And before you start with “I can’t do this because,” you should check out the complete details. This is basically a Customize Your Own Routine/Schedule with few very doable requirements, which is my favorite part!

 

Recapturing Your Beautiful

 

I am beyond ready to be involved in this because it’s EASY. When it comes to health/fitness, easy is the key for me or I know I will give up. I’m not even going to lie to you. And knowing myself as I do, there’s still a possibility that I’ll want to flake. That’s why I picked our very own Angie to be my accountability partner, along with YOU. Yes, you! I want you to hold me responsible. Check in and ask me how it’s going. Perhaps you will even head over to Walking Redeemed to sign up and you can let us know how you’re doing with it, as well.

 

It’s easy for me because I get to design my outline. See, I’m not big on exercise (just because I don’t discipline myself like I need to) and I eat way too much unhealthy food (and I’ll admit I’m not willing to give up too much of that quite yet… I know, I know). My main focus is going to be eating a tad healthier —- 😉 —- but mostly to exercise regularly. And I’m also looking forward to the spiritual aspect.

 

Confession time (as if admitting that I’m a junk food junkie wasn’t enough): I actually struggled not with joining this challenge, but with joining it publicly. Why? I don’t want to deal with scoffers. That’s right. I am undeniably a “skinny girl.” I am blessed with a high metabolism and I always hear comments like, “We need to hold you down and force feed you chocolate!” or “You need to gain some weight!” I was afraid that in announcing that I’m joining a fitness challenge I would hear similar things (for example: “Like you really need to exercise!” *cringe*).

 

Apparently, it’s okay to openly judge someone’s weight/figure as long as they aren’t obese. And when you’re the skinny girl, you’re not allowed to have self-esteem or body issues, either. So I usually keep things like this to myself because I don’t really want to hear the criticism. Not to mention that being pointed out, even for being skinny, is extremely embarrassing.

 

The thing people don’t understand is being skinny does not mean I am in shape. I am far from being what is known as ‘fit.’ And as for this gift of high metabolism…. Who knows when its expiration date is? Will it all of sudden flip-flop on me one day? It’s definitely a possibility. I may be able to use my high metabolism to meet the world’s standards of what size I should be, but I definitely cannot rely on my high metabolism and bad habits to keep me fit and healthy for the rest of my life. Thank you for not judging me! 🙂

Every Friday I will post a blog about ‘my week so far.’ Please be sure to check out the Recapturing Your Beautiful 8 week challenge at WalkingRedeemed.org and let us know if you’re going to join us!

 

Click here to visit Walking Redeemed!

I want to share with you my own customized outline, but first a few notes about it:

                *”Spiritual Exercise” is one of the requirements from WalkingRedeemed.org that I’m really excited about!

                *10 Minute Solutions is a workout series on DVD that I happen to have on hand and enjoy. The workouts are dances. There are 5 dances and you can pick one at a time or however many. Each dance workout is 10 minutes. The 10 minute workout includes the instructor teaching you the dance moves and helping you put them together and it really works (I have done it several times, just never consistently). I would totally break out my Richard Simmons Disco Sweat on VHS to do if we didn’t just move our VHS player to our girls bedroom. I may or may not have some of those routines memorized….

                *Dance party sessions- Where I pick some of my favorite upbeat or silly songs and dance around, however I want to for 10 minutes. This should not be hard for me, especially if I involve my kids. Stay tuned if you want to know some of the songs I’ll use!

                *Worship Workouts- This is me choosing 10 minutes of my favorite worship songs and exercising/worshiping. Similar to the dance party sessions, but geared towards my spirit man.

                *Push ups- these will be the saddest push ups known to man, and I’m okay with that!

                *I do drink water, but not daily. I know the amounts I have chosen to include in my outline are pretty puny, but I want to start out with something I know I have more of a chance of sticking to.

                *I plan to do all of the workouts Monday through Friday, but as long as I do 4 out of the 5 days I’ll be happy. If I mess up or have problems or even do 3 out of the 5 days, I’m not going to give up. I’ll keep on going the next day.

Free Christmas Holiday Season Planning Printable Pack

 

I want to be honest with you and tell you that this printable pack is far from my best work. I drew it up in a hurry and it shows. In a perfect world, I would have started this in early October when I originally thought of it, poured my blood, sweat, and tears into it, and had it finished weeks ago so you could download it earlier. Such was not the case. But since I make myself printable lists every year for my own record, I thought I would throw something together that was pretty and share it with you all.

This Free Christmas Holiday Season Planning Printable Pack has many blank lists, 2 month at a glance calendars for November & December, a budget list, and even includes 2 little sheets for planning New Year’s Eve & New Year’s Day and more. Consisting of 25 pages, the Free Christmas Holiday Season Planning Printable Pack is decorated with vintage public domain images and is rather colorful.

Let’s Have A Party! Free Party Planning Printable

Click the image to download your FREE party planning printable

Click the image to download your FREE party planning printable

 

There are so many free templates and printables out there for party planning. I know, because I’ve probably used all of them.

Having planned so many parties in the last few years, I’ve finally sat down and created my own. It’s not that the other printables weren’t good. It’s that if you have a large group of family and friends, like I do, you need a guest list slot that is looooong.

In addition, I added a few other things that I thought were helpful. I didn’t want to have to make another printable for myself in the future, so I decided to knock it all out with this one hit. After I was done the light bulb went off in my head: “Someone else might want something like this! I should share it. Just in case.”

So here it is, from me to you, all for free.

Included is the following:

  • Guest list
  • Guest tracking of adults and children
  • Budget tracking
  • Venue information
  • Tables and seating information
  • Miscellaneous section, for things like bounce houses, etc.
  • Menu, including the option for a potluck party
  • Entertainment (Band, Comedian, Character)
  • Games
  • Shopping lists
  • Travel Arrangements
  • Notes

I also left blank spaces in every section to add in more items… because every party requires it’s own options!

Are you like me, throwing a lot of parties? What do you look for in a party planning sheet?
