FREE Awesome Resource For Teaching Your Children the Word of God

If you are a parent who has been looking for a resource to help your child not just memorize scripture, but learn gospel, theological truths that they will carry with them into adulthood-I have awesome news for you today!

The Gospel Coalition has a set of children's music albums and right now, they are all available for FREE by digital download. I am not sure how long they will be offered for free, so go get them asap!



Songs for Saplings are music albums (with actual nice, folksy, not annoying music) designed to help children memorize scripture and Catechism. They are based on The New City Catechism, which was developed by Tim Keller and the folks at Redeemer Presbyterian in New York City, and is based on The Westminster Confession and other Reformed catechism-rooted solely in scripture.

I am particularly excited about the ABC album for Cupcake. These go through verses of the Bible A-Z to help little ones learn and memorize scripture. They are short and catchy.






Also, they always offer their lyrics and chord music free-download those here.

And, if you are able, you can donate to their ministry of bringing the gospel to the world through music.

I am Now a Homeschool Mom!

Well...sort of....

Cupcake is only two and a half, but she loves learning, so we are going to start a little pre-school at home in August. 

SO, in case you were wondering what happened to me and why I haven't posting (but maybe you haven't-I don't expect you have!), it is because 1) We temporarily disabled our internet and 2) I am entrenched in Pinterest pre-school ideas.

I'll be sharing some stuff I'm doing with Cupcake here, but I will continue with my craft, fashion, etc posts soon! I considered starting an offshoot blog with just Mommy stuff, as not all my readers are moms, but then I decided I don't have time for that and the world doesn't need another Mommy blog. 

So, you will be seeing some mom stuff here because it takes up most of my time, BUT, I will not overload you and I will keep it with the theme-things I delight in, creative things, etc.

See you soon!

Tropical Fruit Salad {Delighful Morsels}

This fruit salad is a favorite of mine. My mom made it ever since I was little. It's super easy and super delicious-it is more of a dessert than a "salad."


Ingredients:
  • 1 package of instant vanilla pudding
  • 1 average sized tub of whipped topping (I prefer Cool Whip)
  • 1 Can of mandarin oranges
  • 1 can of crushed pineapple bits
  • 1-2 bananas
  • 1/2 bag of mini marshmallows (preferably the multicolored pastel ones)
To make it, all you do is mix the pudding mix with the whipped topping. Then, mix in the oranges, pineapple, and marshmallows. Lastly, top the salad with sliced banana.

Enjoy!

More Scrapbook Pages {Delightfully Creative}

Cupcake is almost two and a half, and yes, I am still working on her baby book. If we have another child, I am Shutterflying that mess!

But, it's been fun to put the pages together-just time consuming! here are some pages I've done recently.

I'll start with my favorite, a girly page:


 I mixed paper and brands, so I can't tell you what I used. I am really bad about keeping my scrapbook stuff organized-I pretty much throw things together. I do know I found the buttons at Target and the mini doilies are Martha Stewart. 

First St. Patrick's Day: I got this idea from Scrapbooks Etc.


A simple month page:

  I kept all the stickers we used for each month for her photos and they are still sticky, so I am using them for each month intro page.

I still have a long ways to go!

Delightfully Creating,

Easy Bead Earrings {Delightfully Creative}

Hey ya'll! I'm still here!! I am still in the mountains with spotty internet, so I am posting when I can.

Here are some fun earrings I made recently. I sat down with the jewelery materials I already had and came up with these.


I simply used jump rings and small beads and linked them together. To create the gathered look, I linked three rings together in some places. 

I gave them to my sister, but I want to make some for me too! 

Delightfully Creating,
