hayley's t-shirt quilt

Commission T-Shirt Quilt for a Christmas gift. I think it turned out great and Hayley loved it.

Thanks to my husband and kids who were very patient the days before Christmas, the quilt was finished on the 24th of December!

olive tree

One of my, ongoing, resolution is to read the Bible. I have read so many books but have never finished that one. I first started reading the paperback Bible above back in 2009, which I really like. Normally I am terrible with dates but I remember because that year I was pregnant with my daughter, who now is 4! Last year I found this free app and this year I intend to use it to accomplish my resolution!
A quick review of what I have experienced so far, it's free, syncs to all your devices, and easy to use. It also allows you to highlight, add notes, bookmark, select a reading plan, and select the bible version you wish to read. You can read more about it here.

happy reading!
