Faith Blog Hop!

Welcome to another Faith Blog Hop presented to you by Paper Tree House Studio!  If you have been following the hop then you should be arriving here from Zeni.  If you just came across this hop, then go to Paper Tree House to catch the beginning of the hop.
Every month a group of bold women gathers to make the Name of the Lord famous and to share the talents we have been given by Him.  We also like to share a little bit of Truth that we have learned from the Bible and/or a bit about how He has impacted our lives.  This month the theme is 
“The Fruit of the Spirit”.
As Christians we are expected to demonstrate the Fruit of the Spirit because the Spirit of God abides in us.  In Galatians 5:22-23 we find the following definition: “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.”  There are many misconceptions about this fruit.  People look at the list of attributes and they are convinced that God has not given them one of the “fruits”, and so they live with remaining sin and a sense of defeat in certain areas of their lives.
If you look at the passage again you will notice that the word FRUIT is NOT plural.  It is only ONE fruit, so if the Spirit of the Lord abides in you, then the attributes that characterize the Spirit live there as well.  If you are not experiencing one of the characteristic of His Spirit in your life, pray that the Lord would cleanse you and purify you.  He is into the business of completing those He saves.  My prayer is that you would draw near to the Lord and that He in turn will draw near to you…
The same way that the Lord blesses those He loves we want to bless you.  We have found an amazing line-up of sponsors and we want to share with you what you could win by hopping around with us:

Ok! so I am not a mini book girl, I know I have posted some but I cannot seem to think how to store them. This whole project was made with paper the book cover also, ribbon and a Tim Holtz little thing was also used.
I saw someone on youtube and was inspired to make this little book. I can't seem to find the video and I can't remember who I watched that did this project. (If anyone knows please let me know or post a link in the comments) I am not into using peoples work unless people know I was inspired by them. I enjoyed making this so much its still in the works but I had to show it. Try making your own its so much fun, I am working on a 6x12 one can't wait to have it done to show you all.
I used ribbon to keep is closed 
I put a little pocket so that the person who has this or if you have more memories the can be added
A photo of all the boys will go here
As you guys can see still needs a little work but if anyone has seen the video of this and can tell me so I can post a link that would be great thanks. 
P.S. this is a little gift I am making for my Grandmother and the little pocket is so she can add more photos.

april 1st

 This is one of the first layouts I ever did, I love using paint and stuff to add a little extra. I am also so happy I have pictures of this and that I put this LO together. Now JM is 4 and I can look back at him as a baby and remember him as a baby. Make sure to not just take pictures of your kids faces but take pictures of them doing things they liked to do because they grow so fast.
