FREE Printable – Bible verses to instill in the hearts of our children

BibleVersesNeutralPinterest
I recently wrote a short article about why I’ve been focusing on particular Bible verses with my children (you can read that article here). In that post, I included a list of verses we can use in different situations with our kids.

After publishing that article, I decided it’d be neat to make a printable with the verses for easy reference. Lily (8) and I had so much fun playing with the colors that we didn’t just make one – we made four!

Here’s what I have for you:

A printable to use for boys (click here or click the photo to open the PDF):

One for girls

And a black and white option (click here or click the photo to open the PDF):BibleVersesBWphoto
To tuck God’s Word into our children’s hearts, we have to first teach God’s Word.

My Favorite Planner: Giveaway! (Plus a link to free organizational printables)

NOTE: I’m not an affiliate for this product and no affiliate links are used in this post. I just want to pass along the word about an organizational product that I love as well as suggest a free alternative.

TimeKeeper
It’s no secret that I’m all about Living Intentionally, writing things down, and keeping a schedule (I’m one of those people who loves to feel spontaneous – as long as it’s carefully planned!).

Not just that, but I like to experience things in real life, not just touch them on a screen. I like to flip through paper books, receive real mail, smell real flowers, and go on real nature walks. There are some things that the Internet, the Wii, and e-mail just can’t duplicate. Plus, I really just need a little extra help in being on time again (you know, because I wrote a book about it and all…)

So, after a couple years of keeping a calendar solely on my phone, I decided that I really wanted a paper planner this year. I’m still planning on keeping appointments on my phone as well as in my planner, but I wanted a planner that had a weekly to-do list, some inspirational quotes, grocery list paper, a place to keep track of progress on my current goals, a little spot for menu planning, and I wanted it to be pretty.

I also wanted to find a planner that was laid out in a way that won’t make me feel overwhelmed and won’t take a lot of time to fill out.

That’s why I’m so excited about The Time Keeper. I had one a few years ago and used it often. It was perfect. Simple, thorough, small enough for my purse, large enough to have plenty of writing space. In my opinion, it’s the best balance of everything. (Go here to take a look inside if you’d like to see what I mean.)

When I went to buy The Time Keeper, I found that the main site was already sold out. Starla Kreider (the creator of this calendar) directed me to a website that still has a few calendars left. I was so excited that I ordered two. One for me. And one for one of you!

Free Printable for Facebook Fans!

Many of you know that I’ve written two eBooks. “28 Days to Timeliness: Tips and Confessions from a Semi-Reformed Late Person” is currently available for just $2.99 and “101 Time-Saving Tips for Busy Moms” is FREE to blog subscribers.

28DaysFinal 101TimeSavingTipsDavonneParksCover

A big theme throughout both books is to be intentional – we can’t always be on time or save a lot of time if we’re consistently squandering time. So, for a little daily reminder, I asked Joy from Five J’s Design to create an Intentional Living Subway Art printable that I could give to my readers.

I’m excited to announce the printable artwork is ready and it’s on my Facebook page! To receive your FREE printable, “Like” me on Facebook if you haven’t already, then click on the “Fans-Only Content” directly under the “Like” button. After that, just click on the image, then print it. Easy, peasy!
