When Sinners Say "I Do" Discovering the Power of the Gospel for Marriage

The gospel is something we need in every area of our lives.  In marriage and in singleness.  In joy and in sorrow.  In good times and in hard times.  When life feels good and when life feels confusing.  This book showed so much of my need for Jesus and His grace. It calls us to look at our own sins and not be so easy to point out the sins of those around us.   It shows the great gravity of our sins.  We can all tend to point fingers and defend or blame our sins on others or life circumstances.  I think especially today it is so easy to do this and not truly see our sins.  "It is wrong, not because of what it does to me, or my spouse, or child, or neighbor, but because it is an act of rebellion against the infinitely holy and majestic God." -Jerry Bridges "There can be no small sins against a great God." -J.I. Packer Dave Harvey mentions in the book that with true sorrow of our "little sins", our awareness of God and His mercy grow. Be quick to see our own


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!
