March Musings - Walk by Faith

by Emily Betzler March 31, 2014

Happy Tuesday! To start the week off on the right foot my friend Rebekah is sharing some thoughts on faith ~ ENJOY!

Walking by faith even when we cannot see

We are only three months into 2014, yet somehow God has already taken me through more than a few unexpected turns. Divorce has introduced itself to my family. Close friends have found new, faraway places to call home. All the while, the circumstances of these happenings have blinded me from the big picture.

My human nature is to frantically leap for the next step as it comes into view. Consequently, the hasty decisions that come from my limited vision deprive me of experiencing the full joy that the Lord has intended for my life. Instead of seeing God’s glory in my grief, my eyes have focused in on the temporary discomfort of the world’s trials.

Walking by sight is all we know to do. Yet God calls us instead to walk by faith, whether we can see or not. The creator of the universe goes before us to light our path, give us wisdom and bring fruition to our lives.

Before we get caught up in the unexpected (and sometimes unwanted) changes life brings, we have to choose faith over fear. Even when our plans fail, the Lord is sovereign and faithful to fulfill his promises.

Will you join me in striving towards new sight?

 This week, I will try to reopen the eyes of my heart to see the real purpose in my life…

Our Favorite Giveback, Ethical, Small Shop Baby Brands

by Emily Betzler July 14, 2019

 As you know, we are in full-on BABY mode over here (and loving every minute of it)!

It seems like the baby game has changed quite a bit since our last baby- there are so many new ethical, small shop, sustainable and giveback brands and products that we've begun to fall in love with! While we still turn to 2nd hand/hand-me-down items as our first resort for finding items for our kids - (it is most economical and sustainable), it has been encouraging and fun to see the myriad of new options! We've loved trying out and supporting some of these brands as we shop with an impact, and are excited to share our recommendations with you! 

Here are our favorite ethical, small shop, sustainable giveback baby brands - and the products we have been using and loving in our everyday life!
