I am so excited to share this book review!!  I've been following GirlDefined for a few years now and have enjoyed every book they have published and have grown and been encouraged so much by their ministry.  I signed up to be apart of their launch team for their new devotional and was so beyond excited to be chosen!  This journey has been so exciting and fun and I'm so glad I got a chance to be a part of it! I love Kristin and Bethany’s heart for the Lord.   They’re desire to put Him above all else in their lives and to share and encourage girls and young women to do the same.   The thing that first stood out to me as I began to read their Shine Bright Devotional was this line in their intro- “just keep in mind that this devotional isn’t intended to replace time in God’s word each day; it’s meant to supplement it.” I think this is so important to realize as we start each new devotional or christian book.   We are meant to read God’s word and be in daily fellowship with Him.   T


I had been really wanting to start a little business, a way to make some money, for a while now.  We had been tossing around ideas, such as fun last names written in the sand and making soap. (The soap would have been more of a family business).  But the sand thing was a lot harder than we expected and we are too busy for making soap and selling it.  So I needed something else, something easier, cheaper, and something I could do on my own.  I really like taking pictures, so something around that seemed good and then my dad thought about cards.  Yes, perfect.  It's easy, cheap and I can do it on my own.  So just in the last month or so I had been trying to figure the whole selling card thing.  We found this sight called Etsy that is perfect to sell things off so I made an account with that and am now just getting started on my first own 'business'. I am pretty excited to see how well it will go!

     Here are a few cards:

 So yeah I just wanted to share that with you all!
 And I would post the link here for Etsy, but I cant' do it at the moment! Sorry!
Sincerely Aly on Etsy!
