October’s Best Moments

October’s Best Moments

Hi there, everyone! I hope that you’re all having a beautiful day. (: Today, I have a bit of a wrap-up post to share with you! I decided that I would enjoy recapping some of my favorite moments from the month of October, both on the blogging world and in my real life. xx I hope that you enjoy it!

Also, I’d like to wish my followers a happy and safe Halloween! Whatever you guys might be up to (or have been this past week), with costume parties, fall festivals, and other fun fall-ish activities, I hope that you’re all having a great time. ❤ I’m going trunk-or-treating at a nearby church with my family tonight, and we’re so excited about it!

Now I’ll get into the rest of this post. Make sure to let me know in the comments below what your favorite memories from this past month are, as well!

October’s Greatest Moments

Getting back into playing the piano. At the very beginning, the discouragement that teaching myself wouldn’t be worth it weighed more on my heart than the desire to play … but then, something wonderful happened these last few weeks, and I’ve been deeply encouraged, motivated, and inspired once again. I can do this, and it’s going to be awesome!

Blogging daily. The last month that I did this was for the May blogging challenge, and it was so nice to share something with you guys every day! I loved coming up with a variety of posts, and this consistency has been what first inspired different posts that I absolutely loved (i.e. Missions Mondays), and I can’t wait to share more of them in the future!

Spending time outside with my family. From playgrounds to apple orchards to our own backyard, finally getting to enjoy being outside once again has been so wonderful! After the heat and humidity of our summers, the crisp air of autumn is a beautiful relief. Here are a few favorite photos that I’ve taken of our fall adventures throughout October:

Thank you so much for reading, guys!! Blogging every day of October has been fantastic. ❤ Thank you for following along! I’ll see you guys tomorrow for a new month of blogging adventures!

Missions Monday – Part Three | Inspirational Missions Quotes

Missions Monday – Part Three | Inspirational Missions Quotes

Hi guys! How’s your day going? I hope that you’re all doing well! xx I have another Missions Monday to share with you. 🙂 For the past few months, I’ve enjoyed finding inspirational quotes on missions trips and saving them to my calling board (check that out here, if you’d like!), and I decided to share some of my top favorites with you today! They have been a big encouragement to me over the months, opening my eyes to how the Lord is working in my life and seeing the beauty in this calling. ❤ I hope that you enjoy!

Inspirational Missions Quotes

“We are called to be bold.”

“Never underestimate the power of speaking with love.”

“God has a vision far greater than my sight.” – J.S. Park

“Life is too short, the world is too big, and God’s love is too great
to live an ordinary life.”

“It may not be easy, but it will be worth it.”

“When you love God more than you love the comfort of home,
you will go far.”

“Pay attention to what breaks your heart.
Chances are, that’s where God wants you to serve.”

“Only by giving are you able to receive more than you already have.”
– Jim Rohn

“Courage doesn’t mean you don’t get afraid.
Courage means you don’t let fear stop you.”

Thank you so much for reading! Weren’t those quotes great? I’d have to say that my favorite one is: “When you love God more than you love the comfort of home, you will go far.” For my life, this is definitely true; I love Him so much more than the comfort of home! It is my desire to follow Him wherever He desires to lead me. ❤

How about you?

My Fall Bucket List | Checking Things Off

My Fall Bucket List | Checking Things Off

Hi guys! I hope that your Sunday is going well. ❤ At the beginning of this month, I shared my fall bucket list with you, and over the weeks, I have gotten to check many of those things off! I thought today would be a nice time to look at my progress, and maybe plan to finish everything else in November, too. Let me know in the comments below what you’ve been up to this fall!

My Fall Bucket List

  • Take fall family photos. Done! Whenever there has been any picturesque moment, I have been sure to snapshot it. I’ve shared some of these photos on the post for this upcoming Tuesday!
  • Have a campfire and roast marshmallows. Not yet. Both of my little brothers have made multiple small fires, but I haven’t roasted marshmallows with them yet. I really should!
  • Bake an apple pie. Kind of! I made Apple Crumble instead, which I shared with you guys yesterday. I don’t have enough experience in baking yet to confidently bake an apple pie. But I will, someday I will!

  • Go pick apples. Done! I went to one with my family at the beginning of the month, and we couldn’t have had a more beautiful, fun-filled day. I’m so glad we got to go!

  • Enjoy the nice, crisp air. Definitely! I happily do this every fall; there is no way I under-appreciate the beautiful weather here at this time of year.
  • Go on a hay ride. Done! This was included at our visit to Red Apple Barn, and when the dust wasn’t getting in my eyes (haha), it was a lot of fun!

  • Watch the sunset. Done! Any time we’ve been somewhere with a nice view of the sky, I have enjoyed witnessing the beauty of that vast expanse at dusk. ❤
  • Make a fall craft. Kind of. One afternoon, my mom, brothers, and I did a fall-ish activity where we traced our hands in such a way as to create an optical illusion – and we used fall colors – but that wasn’t the easiest thing to do, and I ended up getting glitter glue on mine, haha! I’m not sure if that counts …
  • Make pumpkin bread. Kind of … my mom made some recently, but I have yet to myself. lol

Thanks for reading, guys! This fall has been amazing so far, and I’m so excited to see what November has to offer in just a few short days. ❤ Let me know in the comments below:
