Christmas Countdown-2 days

Hello everyone.

How did you do with yesterday’s challenge?

Did you enjoy it?

I had some fun as well.

Ok, here is today’s challenge:

Sing Christmas Carols with your family and friends.

For some people, they love doing this. For others, they hate it.

But the key point of it is to have fun. Make it a friendly competition. Play your violin instead of sing. Or try and funk up some of the old tunes!

You won’t know unless you’ve tried, so have a go.

What are your favourite carols?

Do you like singing?

What are your favourite types of songs?

Christmas Countdown-3 days

Merry Christmas everyone!

I hope you’re all excited for this season.

For today and this weekend, I thought it’d be fun to have a Christmas challenge for each day.

Here’s today’s:

Do a Christmas creativity collection.

It can be of anything- pictures,  stories, poems, songs, drawings, blog posts,  Instagram posts,  YouTube videos, etc.

You can share it on social media, or to a close family member/friend.

The most important thing is that you are having fun.

Here’s an example of some of the things that I’ve done:

Christmas tree collection 2017

How about you?

Are you excited for Christmas?

Has Advent this year been good so far?

December 2017’s Series of the Month-Part 2

Hello everyone.

Yes, it’s part 2 of this month’s books reviews. And today, we are going to look at book one of the series( by the way, the series is called Altered Hearts, which sums the purpose of the series quite nicely).

Drum roll please…

About this book

Spoiled eighteen-year-old Kim Hartlinger arrives late to orientation for a mission trip to Mexico—she carelessly missed her flight—only to learn the project has changed. Construction in a remote village without plumbing and electricity rather than evangelism in a medium-sized town with numerous souvenir and fast food places. Kim’s negative overreaction to the change angers the project leaders and her teammates and immediately makes her the least popular team member. She’s determined to do better, though. And to be obedient to God. When Kim breaks her arm, she feels useless. She wants to do evangelism, but the team didn’t bring a translator and the villagers don’t speak any English. Kim knows nada Spanish, and her “dual-language Bible” turns out to be Spanish-only. Kim undertakes two one-handed projects. The first is her own idea. The second is God’s, though, and it sounds crazy. Crazier than crazy. But will it touch the villagers’ hearts with the Gospel? How can she even find out?

What I loved:

I really enjoyed the fact that Kimberly was at first really spoilt, so when she went to Mexico, that contrast was really evident for me, making me feel as a reader seriously appreciate what I have.

I also loved that almost every character in the book goes on a journey and they, the mission team and the Mexicans, all change by influencing each other, despite the linguistic barriers.

And the way the themes were all twisted together was amazing, and I took a lot away from reading the book.

Age Recommendation: 12+

This was a completely clean read, but I think because of the reading standard that it should be 12+. Of course, if you are younger and very good at reading, go ahead and read it. But there is a slight level of maturity, like with most YA books, that you ought to be aware of, whether it’s a comedy or tragedy.

Why I recommend this book:

As a girl who want do to do missions herself, I was so inspired by Kim’s change of attitude and her willingness to not only listen to God, but to obey Him as well which made a huge impact on the people around her. And this book, and series actually, just shows that people can change, and your actions can have very positive effects.

Where to Buy this book:

It’s on Amazon as a kindle and ebook. If you are British, here’s the Link to the Paperback version

Blogging Reflections and Resolutions

Hello everyone!

So here we are, the last day of November!

I’m so happy to have reached a milestone this month, and I appreciate you celebrating it with me.

So, here we go.

Blogging Reflections

1. Not counting the reblogged post and the one I’m currently writing, I wrote 7 posts this month on this blog! 🙂

2. I relaunched my old community blog Golden Medallion, which after six months on the metaphorical internet shelf was dusted and back to work. I was able to join with another blogger Halle Belle who’s been really helpful keeping it running and encouraging young people through the blog with her devotional.

3. I got to meet loads of bloggers through the Regal Hearts Blog Tour, which has been an amazing experience for me as a reader and a participant.

Blogging Resolutions

1. Keep blogging!

2. Turn this blog into more of a writing/creativity blog, more on that soon,.

3. Start getting more active on social media and connecting with other bloggers, I already do, but I think I need to do more.

4. Do guest posts and participate in more blog tours

How about you?

How has your blogging life been this month?

Do you have any resolutions/ goals?
