Seasons

by Emily Betzler September 02, 2014

Fall is coming. School is starting. Life is changing.

I'm always refreshed by a change in season when it refers to the temperament of the weather. Unfortunately, I don't always see change as refreshing when it applies to the season of my life.

Embracing new seasons of life is sometimes an unnatural response, but it becomes easier when we discover their purpose.

maps    The Lord gives us new seasons for the purpose of growing us into better disciples.

How would we learn trust if we didn't have a few unwanted seasons full of who, what, where, when and why?

How would we learn to ask if we never had anything to ask for?

There are seasons for challenge and trial, but there are also seasons for restoration and renewal.

We need both to see the true character of God.

In the challenging seasons, ask for strength and wisdom.

In the seasons of rest, praise Him for his love and faithfulness.

Change can be harsh, but it can also be beautiful.

YAY for a change of season!

yay

 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!
