Today I am thrilled to share the brand new Bible journaling kit from Dayspring! This kit is the third kit in a three kit series on Women of the Bible. This month's kit, Imperfect Hospitality, focuses on Rebekah (Gen. 24), Mary (Luke 10), The Shunammite woman (2 Kings 4), and the widow of Zarphath (1 Kings 17).

The Imperfect Hospitality kit includes:
4 devotionals
1 washi tape
2 sheets of clear stickers
8 coordinating paper pieces
2 sheets of alpha stickers
1 4x6 clear stamp set
1 Women of the Bible: Imperfect Hospitality sticker
1 greeting card [from (in)courage]
1 DIY over-sized paperclip with ribbon
4 Free Bonus Printable Pages (delivered via email)

The Imperfect Hospitality kit helps you linger in the Word longer as you study strong women in the Bible. You will learn what it means to open your door, your arms, and your heart to be a blessing to others.

The devotional cards give you Scripture to look up, a brief devotional, and thought provoking questions. They fit perfectly inside your journal or you can write on the blank back. Add stickers, stamps, and washi to personalize your devotions with beautiful pops of color.

I love Dayspring's Bible journaling kits and how they help me to slow down and worship the Lord through creativity. As someone who isn't normally creative or artistic, these kits help me add beautiful touches to my Bible and my prayer journal.

Pick up your Imperfect Hospitality kit and journal your way through women of the Word!

How To Make A Career Change This Year

Contributed post

If you have reached a place in your life where you are stuck in a rut with your job, it might be difficult to imagine that you can truly make a change and escape from your current career completely. However, if you do feel unhappy with your career at this time in your life there is no good reason why you should stay and suffer, and this week we are going to look at some of the things you need to do in order to make a change in your career and be happier overall.

Be brave

The most important thing that you will need to do if you want to be successful and be able to find a career for you is to be brave. It is crucial that you don’t stay in your comfort zone simply because it's easier for you to do so: take a risk and make a change, and you will honestly be able to live a happier life as a result.

Think about what you want

After you do decide to make a change to your career, you need to start thinking about what you want to do with your life. It can be hard to choose a career when the whole world is your oyster, and when you come to make a decision you will want to start by thinking of what you enjoy and what you are good at. Listing your skills and your favourite hobbies can be helpful for you when trying to choose a career path and it will make it easier for you to choose your next job role.

Find the perfect role

Once you have a list of the things you enjoy and the skills you have, it is the time to narrow down your options and start thinking about your next job. This can be the hardest part of your decision making because there will likely be a lot of different options which you want to try out. Make sure that you take your time to decide what you want to do with your life because it will be an important decision for you to make.


Now that you have chosen which direction you want to pursue in your life, it is time for you to start gaining any of the skills and qualifications which are needed for your new role. Fir example dfi you decided to go into nursing you would want to make sure that you take part in an online nnp program and get some real world experience in a hospital too. There are always things you need to do to be ready for a new role so make sure to take the time to do this while you are still in your current role. 

Make a move

Once you have studied and become qualified there is nothing standing in your way and stopping you from doing what you want to do in life. Say goodbye to your old job and pursue something that makes you genuinely happy and allows you to thrive and grow as a person.

The brand new Dayspring Bible journaling kit is available today and friends, as always, you will love this kit! This kit is the second of three kits in Women of the Bible series.

This Women of the Bible kit is all about friendship on purpose. With studies of Ruth (Ruth 1), The Queen of Sheba (1 Kings 10), Naaman's servant (2 Kings 5), and Mary Magdalene (Luke 24), you will study about women who were intentional in their relationships.

Each kit comes with:
4 devotionals
1 washi tape
2 sheets of clear stickers
6 coordinating paper pieces
2 sheets of alpha stickers
1 4x6 clear stamp set
1 Women of the Bible: Friendship on Purpose sticker
1 greeting card [from (in)courage]
1 Navy blue ink pad
4 Free Bonus Printable Pages (delivered via email)

The kit works perfect with your Illustrating Bible, your (in)Courage Devotional Bible, or even a notebook journal. I love using the kit in my notebook journal. The devotional cards fit perfectly and I have plenty of space to add stickers, stamps, washi, and my own notes and prayers.

With friendship being the theme of this kit, this is the perfect time to focus on our friends. To thank God for them, to pray over them, and to encourage our friends. Dayspring cards are a great and inexpensive way to send an encouraging word as we live out our friendships on purpose.
