Monday Love

Today I'm decorating for Valentine's Day. It's one of my favorite days of the year. Ahh love is in the air so I thought I would share my favorite go to places with y'all.

I'm a vintage junkie. I love it all and use it for anything from home decor to my scrapbook pages. When in need of some fun clip art I always run to The Graphics Fairy site. They are amazing!!! So they make number one on my list of favorite things. I use my home printer to print off several of these images and hang them up banner style.  You could use your favorite printer service too.  Oooh now I'm thinking of these on pretty metallic paper.  Ha!

The Lucado Life Lessons Study Bible (NKJV)

This study bible is perfect for anyone who is a fan of Max Lucado's previous works.  It has several special sections to help you study the bible more thoroughly.  It offers a two-year devotional study plan, study guides, studies by subject, among all of the life lessons provided throughout the text.  The text is in the New King James Version so it's very easy to read.

Personally, I'm a huge fan of Max Lucado.  I was really impressed with the design and format of how this version is presented.  The life lessons Max has written on the sidebars help to understand the text easily.  He always has a way to make the reader think outside of the box. The study guides have been so easy to use for group discussion with my study group.  The hardback edition is not only very durable but guaranteed for life!  The typeface of the text is the perfect size for any reader.  I would highly recommend The Lucado Life Lessons Study Bible to everyone no matter where they are on their walk.  The life application lessons and stories are a perfect companion for any christian living through faith.
