For today: I am SO glad all you readers enjoyed "the list" I shared a few days ago from Girlfriends in God, it reminded me that I have been meaning to share another terrific resource I received from my mentor in Bible Study last year. She printed out cards for each of us from a site called True Campaign.org that each have an affirmation on one side and scripture (from different translations of the Bible) on the back that I keep on my mirror, fridge, wallet, car etc, so throughout my day (in these strategic places where I am prone falling into traps of temptation, negative thinking or doubt) I am reminded of what is TRUE. They show another side of beauty, identity, and body image, and you can print out these cards, too, in color or black and white, it is a free pdf. (I also recommend checking out some of the videos on their site, many of you might remember the one sponsored by Dove a couple years ago that shows the "magic" of photo retouching to understand how magazine standards just aren't real life!)
I hope these bless you the way they have me! Please share with your children and girlfriends! I can't share them all today, but I think I will share them one at a time with you in case you won't be printing them out. This one pictured (front and back) is not the one I read most often, but you can tell from the edges it is well loved. :)
My post title today is from scripture and the focus of one of the cards:
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.I actually memorized this verse for the first time two summers ago with my kids at VBS. It is one I repeat often, and it has really changed what I now choose to read, listen to, etc. (For the better!)
Finally, thanks everyone for all the feedback over the weekend about my posts, very helpful! I will take it all into account, but of course I suspected (correctly!) you'd all have very different preferences, lol! So, I will try to change it up to give you a little bit of everything and incorporate different methods of listing materials, directions, etc in the way that makes most sense (and what i have time for!) for that particular post.
Have a BEAUTIFUL DAY! Hugs!
