BRICK BUILDERS ILLUSTRATED BIBLE {GIVEAWAY}

Does your child love Legos? My oldest son loved Legos. Like seriously loved them. He has several large 25 gallon storage totes full of Legos. At the age of 19, he still from time to time builds something. When he was younger, he struggled with focusing yet when he was building his bricks, he could sit there for hours on end building without getting up!

Your little builder will travel from Genesis to Revelation as they read stories like the Creation, Noah’s Ark, David and Goliath, the Birth of Jesus, and Jesus Walks on Water.

Enlightening Ideas To Help You Live A Better Life



Everybody wants to live a better life. It’s not just something you do for yourself but for those
around you. Aiming to better yourself is a selfless act, whether you’re responsible for kids
and you want to be a good parent or you simply love your friends and want to support them
in the way that they support you. In other words, the goal isn’t to better yourself simply for
personal gain. That being said, you are just as important as any other person, and it’s
important to value yourself. These enlightening ideas might just help you to live a better life.


Make a change to your physical health.
When it comes to living a better life, improving your health can often be the toughest thing
to change. In the modern world, millions of people struggle with this on a daily basis, and
it’s often for reasons beyond their control. But if you have the power to live a healthy life
then you should seize that opportunity. Many of us are fortunate to have the money and
resources necessary to live well, so you should be cautious with your wealth if you want
to live a better life. It all starts with replacing bad habits. Maybe you eat too much junk food,
drink too much wine, or smoke too many cigarettes. Forming new healthy habits isn’t always
an instantaneous process, but you’ll feel the difference in the long-term if you start making
changes today.


One healthy habit you should definitely try to form is a better sleeping pattern. Many of us
are guilty of not sleeping properly in today’s society. We’re all so busy with work, home life,
and other adult responsibilities that we often neglect the most important aspect of a healthy
daily routine: a good night’s rest. It’s easy to think that caffeine is a solution to the problem,
but it isn’t. A lack of sleep doesn’t just deplete your energy; it slows your metabolism and
muscle repair, it negatively impacts your mental health, and it can even lead to heart problems.
Those are just a few examples. But think of it this way: your healthy habits won’t produce
results if you’re not sleeping properly. If your metabolism is slowed then your healthy diet
won’t have an entirely positive impact, and your muscles need to repair properly if you’re
going to get into shape from a new fitness regime. Making a change to your physical health
is about considering all aspects of your wellbeing. Get into a regular bedtime routine if you
want to live healthily.


Do something new every day.
Another enlightening idea to help you live a better life is to do something new every day.
Obviously, that new thing should be beneficial. You don’t want to start an unhealthy habit
(especially if you took the advice from the previous point on board). Maybe you could
learn a new language, for example. You could even use an app such as Duolingo so
that you can learn in short 2-minute lessons. So, there’s no excuse for not trying new
things. Even if you’re busy, there are plenty of resources in the modern world that make
it easy to improve yourself. The internet, above all else, is a tool that makes it incredibly
easy to learn new things. Make it your mission to do something new every day. Obviously,
you don’t have to start learning a new language every day (there are only so many languages).
But you could simply learn a new word or try a new kind of food from your local grocery store.


Find the perfect career.
If you want to live a better life then you should aim to find the perfect career. A lot of people
view their job as a means to an end. Whilst working is important to make money, of course,
that doesn’t mean you have to find your career dull and tedious. Work can be challenging,
obviously, but it should be a challenge that you gladly face each day. They say that you never
work a single day if you find a job that’s right for you. That’s an exaggeration, of course,
because working always involves… well, work. But the idea is that you should find a career
which suits your personality, interests, and talents. That way, you’ll feel fulfilled at the end
of each day. The wage will be a pleasant reward at the end of it all rather than the sole
incentive you have for working at all.


You just need to think about your characteristics and the type of career that would be best
fitted to you. Maybe you’re a creative individual, so a repetitive office role is obviously going
to make you feel stifled. But there are plenty of corporate career opportunities that allow
professionals to be creative, believe it or not. You might want to consider a career in graphic
design if you’re artistic, for example. Or if you’re logically-minded then you should look for
career opportunities that challenge you to solve problems. Maybe you could study for an
online computer engineering degree if you’re technologically-gifted. That would open up
plenty of doors in the computer science industry, and that’s a booming marketplace. You
need to do some hunting if you’re not happy with your current career.




Spend and save your money more wisely.
Whether you want to be able to take better care of your family or you simply want to treat
your friends to a round of drinks at the bar, learning to be fiscally responsible can improve
your life and the lives of those around you. It all starts with self-discipline. Whether you earn
a six-figure wage or not, spending and saving your money more wisely can massively increase
your wealth. Take a look at your monthly bills. Could you save money by reassessing your
expenses? Maybe you could switch energy suppliers or even get thicker glazing for your
windows to trap heat and reduce your energy bills. Maybe you could start growing vegetables
in your back garden to save yourself that weekly expense at the local grocery store. You
should also set up a savings account and set aside a percentage of your income every month.
Think outside the box to spend and save your money more wisely.


Set aside some time for yourself.
This might not be a suggestion you expected to see in this article, but setting aside some time
for yourself is a great way to live a better life. Sitting down with a good book from time to time
can really help you to heal emotionally. Whether you’re going through really hard times or
you’ve simply had a stressful day at work, setting aside some time for yourself can do wonders
for your mental state. You need to make this a priority in your life. Your emotional wellbeing is
important. It’s not a selfish way to live either. Improving your mental health will make you
stronger and more supportive of your friends, siblings, parents, children, and other loved ones
in your life. Don’t ever dismiss your duty to take care of yourself. Your happiness is just as
important as everyone else’s.


Spend time with your friends and family.

Finally, make sure you spend time with your friends and family. As discussed in the previous
point, alone time is important, but you need to make time in your life for your loved ones. If
you’re there for your kids and your friends then you’ll not only make their lives better but
improve your one. Maintaining strong relationships with your loved ones will keep you mentally
healthy. In fact, the simple act of laughing has huge benefits for your physical health too; it
keeps your heart strong. So, if you want to live a better life then don’t forget about the people
who matter most.
