Today’s guest blogger is Lindsay. She’s been a life-saver for me, helping me out with all my paper products and leaving time for me to create the jewelry and blog projects. She’s sharing an easy Thanksgiving project that’s a great idea for little ones!
Hi! My name is Lindsay. I have been working for Ann for almost two years. I love helping her business behind the scenes by cutting, stamping, and assembling her packaging products.
This November, my husband, Christian and I will celebrate 8 years of marriage. My husband is amazing! He teaches me to dig deeper into God’s Word for truth and encourages me to have patience with the blessings that God has given us in our children.
We have three boys, Jeremiah (5), Isaiah (3), and Ezekiel (20 months) and just welcomed Naomi, our daughter, in August.
I am a stay at home mom who enjoys cuddles, play time, and learning about the world around us with the help of my littles. We never have a down moment with four, high energy, enthusiastic, lovable little sinners running around the house. This year I began teaching our oldest son kindergarten. It has been a challenge and so rewarding at the same time.
Thanksgiving is my favorite season. I start decorating for fall/Thanksgiving in the end of September and keep it up until the 1st of December. One lesson I do with my kids during this season is to work on having grateful hearts.
An easy project that we do every year is a Gratitude Tree. It hangs on a wall in our kitchen that has major foot traffic so we get to look at it every day, multiple times a day. Throughout the season we stop and write things we are thankful for on the tree. It ranges from people, things, or scripture that we are reading or learning about. It is great because the entire family is able to participate (well not this year for Naomi). We save it for future years as something to reflect on later.
It is good to remember where our hearts have been and it helps to direct our hearts for the future. God has been so good to our family in the joy, heartache, and tribulation. We need to learn to be grateful in response.
Always giving thanks for all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God, even the Father. Ephesians 5:20
Thanks, Lindsay, for sharing with us today!
