Ways to Celebrate a Christ Centered Easter

Every Easter we attempt to help teach our children that Easter is not about the Easter bunny but instead it's about the death and resurrection of our Savior Jesus Christ. 

There are so many fun, simple and beautiful things we can do with our families to celebrate the real meaning of Easter.

To help you develop your own Christ-centered Easter traditions, here are some activities that we have enjoyed doing as a family:

Winter Fun

 The only time I can appreciate the cold weather during the winter months is when we get enough snow that its useful and we can go snowboarding or have a snowball fight. Anyone else detest the freezing temps?

We have an Author!

So at the beginning of the year, Kyle told the girls about a writing contest for children in our area that was being sponsored by PBS KIDS Writers & Illustrators and our Public Library.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Everyone who knows me can tell you that food is my love language. If I like you, chances are you'll get a meal or treat from me at one point in our friendship. It's just what I do. 

So, with today being the day of love-I got up early to whip up some sweet treats for the people who have my heart!

Vegan Friendly Thai Salad

If I could summarize in a single recipe what a healthy vegan diet means to me, this bowl might just be it. It’s fresh, crisp, vibrant and heavy on the veggies with plant-based proteins throughout plus has a creamy and indulgent peanut dressing. In other words, this taste incredibly delicious plus makes you feel stinking amazing after eating it!!

This Cherry Smoothie Bowl is as healthy as it is delicious! It’s refreshing, filling, and loaded with beautifying superfoods. Add all your favorite toppings for a treat suited just to your tastes.
Sometimes you just need a hint of decadence in your life. If your sweet tooth just needs to be satisfied, skip the ice cream and go straight for this smoothie bowl. I’ve been making this cherry smoothie for awhile, and it’s definitely one of my favorite smoothie bowls to date.

Confidence & Accountability

Accountability is a fine-tuned discipline that doesn't come natural to everyone and it refers to the actions you take on a day-to-day basis. Anyone that has ever attempted to lose weight and failed, understands that just because you have a desire to change- it doesn't really mean you will. 

Winter is one of the toughest times of the year to remain accountable to your health + fitness goals but it is doable (especially if you have the right tools)!
So in honor of the bright and beautiful year ahead I thought I'd share 5 tools to boost confidence and accountability.

A huge thanks to Trophy Skin, for providing me with the opportunity to turn back the clock & rejuvenate my skin! As always all opinions are my own!

It's awful how dry my hair gets during the winter months! I know I put it through a lot with daily heat-styling but I never color my hair, so I thought I was doing enough to protect it and keep it from getting damaged. I was wrong. In fact, my hair feels the most damaged it's ever been.  

So, after a little research, I set out to find a product that would finally help me repair my damaged locks once and for all.

Our DIY white Kitchen Makeover

After months of planning and hard work, I'm so excited to share the first photos from our DIY white painted kitchen cabinets project! This last phase of the effort involved many late nights, early mornings, countless trips to the hardware store, and even a few tears. But now that it's all done, I feel the hard work truly paid off. I'm no longer overwhelmed by this room since we've created the perfect blank slate. Now, I can't wait to begin decorating the room in the style that I love!
