Friday Faves

Here are a few favorite things we are loving right now:

Window on the World- an Operation World Prayer Resource

It’s so good although I’m a bit sad that a few of my favorite countries didn’t make the book, maybe that just means another book is coming!? Grab a copy and lead your little ones in learning more about the world and praying for our world.

HandMade Easter Eggs

Y’all have seen my disdain for those plastic eggs that have taken over my home this last week. Mercy House Global has a brilliant solution with handmade felt eggs that will give back to the ladies making them! They have just restocked so you better hurry and get some before they are out again!

Speaking of those silly plastic eggs, be sure to grab our Easter Egg Service Challenge printable, choose which ones you want to do, let your little one open up a few eggs before Easter and get serving! We just opened up “bake cookies and give them away!” So we spent yesterday baking St. Patrick’s Day cookies and sending them to work with daddy and to our teachers.

And it’s almost St. Patrick’s Day!

Be sure to take a few minutes and share the great story of who St. Patrick was and how God is still calling out missionaries today!

VeggieTales has a silly clip that explains his life and my little ones love it! But they also love VeggieTales and any excuse to watch TV! You can find the short video here on YouTube.

Local On Mission Moms

Have you had a chance to visit the Family Prayer Room at The Bridge! It’s coming together and you should totally stop in with your little ones and spend a few minutes praying together! We still have a few more items to finish up the room – simple things like chalk and cars/trucks for the community mat. Be sure to check out our Amazon wishlist and help us finish up this special room! There is also an all night prayer time coming up in April and the family prayer room will be open even as our little ones are sleeping.

So, What are you loving this week?

Share over on Instagram or here in the comments and let’s grow and learn together!

Friday Faves: Valentine Fun Edition

img_1536

Happy Friday and Happy February and can I just say that I’m so glad it’s a new month –  Love Month!  We have been quite sick around here so all of us are ready to embrace a NEW month and share some LOVE!

There are always super cute and fun things to share for this month too! Here are just a few of my favorite things that I’ve discovered so far:

wooden_heart_lip_balm_009_400x400

Mercy House Global Valentine’s Day Heart Lip Balm – Oh my Word! Aren’t they the cutest!! And they support the work of some sweet orphans in Malawi.  There are some other cute Valentine things too like friendship bracelets and coffee. Who doesn’t LOVE coffee?!

EloraInspired – We Love PlaceMats – We love our placemats and in fact, the girls often argue over who gets the pink one and who gets the blue one. I should have just bought the same colors! (DUH!) This is a great way to put scripture before then and also keep your table clean. She also recently released a coloring version of Noah’s Ark!

The Little Market – Wooden Heart Bowl – So CUTE! I’m just learning about this shop and all the work that they do but I already LOVE so many of their products! And I love even more that they support and empower women all around the world to do great work. There is also a wooden heart shaped spoon… swoon…

Fishesandloaves – Valentine Hanging Towel – This is my sweet friend, Anna, who I adore and MISS big! Her, her hubby, and their fun kiddos moved up north for medical school a few years ago now and God is doing great things through them but man they are missed down here.  She is super talented and recently posted these to her little shop. I’m not sure how many she has left – hopefully I can snag one before they are gone!

Valentine Books & Resources

There is a picture link below to purchase through our On Mission Mom’s Amazon Shop.

Is this not the cutest book series?! I just love all the different ones – You, Heaven, Angels, Sleep, the World.. So Cute! This would be a great book to add to your Valentine Collection.

I had no idea that Rick Warren wrote children books… who knew?! But it’s super cute (which I think I have said on every item above… ha). This is a sweet story how the God of the universe also loves each of us, individually and deeply. What greater truth to pour into their hearts – an eternal love!

I posted on Instagram the other day about how God was reminding me about striving to be an excellent wife first. Lots of you asked about this book! It’s great and would be an excellent read throughout February. There is also a book for the husbands – although it is not written to “go together”, it’s great and my hubby has been challenged as he has read this month. There are links included below to purchase from Amazon. (On Mission Moms does receive a small portion of your purchase. Thank you for supporting our work!)


I do not receive any compensation or support from the shops mentioned above. I just love their work and want to support and share it with other like minded mamas! I do however, receive a small portion of the profit from  the Amazon links posted above!

Friday Favorites!

It’s been a while since I’ve done a Friday Favorites, but I’ve come across quite a few really super cute, fun and important things lately and couldn’t help but share them with you this week!

  1. Felt Easter Eggs – Mercy House Global

These are super cute and who says you have to use the plastic eggs for your Easter basket?! Also these help change the lives of some pretty beautiful ladies from Street Hope, one of their artisan groups. You can read more about Street Hope on their website.

  1. Scripture ABC Cards – Kids Read Truth

We have a scripture that we use with the girls each week but what better way to reinforce scripture and help them learn their letters at the same time – and these cards are just beautiful! 

  1. World Watch List- Open Doors  

Do you know the top 50 places around the world where it’s hardest for our brothers and sisters to follow Jesus? Open Doors just released their 2019 Watch List and it’s interesting to me to see what countries make the list each year and how some countries have been on this list for years and years. Be sure to download the list, read the stories from those living there, and pray for each country that is listed. Maybe pray for a country each week? 

  1. Qadimi Rugs

I have a dear friend who is doing great work in one of the countries listed above. The ladies she works with recently released a new line of beautiful rugs. If you are looking for a beautiful new rug for your home, why not support the work of women around the world at the same time?! I’m so proud of this sweet friend and ways that the Father is using her gifts and talents to impact the world! You can also follow them over at Instagram  to see all the beautiful work that they are doing.

  1. King Cake and praying for New Orleans 

I’ve had lots of questions lately about what is King Cake!?! If you’ve never had one, you have got to try it! This recipe from Brown Eyed Baker is my tried and true one. I’ve tried a few others and added filling but I always come back to this one. (Which by the way, I don’t know this beautiful lady or blog but her king cake recipe is legit!)  Or if you would rather just use a mix (no shame!) you can purchase them from our Amazon On Mission Moms Link! (we do receive a small portion of your purchase so thanks for supporting us!) 

What fun resources have you come across this week that will help you and other mamas live “On Mission”? Share with us and encourage others!
