Have you ever wandered around the house looking for the perfect solution to something!  Well, it’s time to stop searching!  I’ve stumbled across some of the most useful life hacks and knew I had to share them with you all!  Check them out…life just got a lot easier!Chelsea Crockett- winged eyeliner

  1. Have you ever needed to microwave two bowls at once? Place one on the floor of the microwave and the other on top of a cup above the other!
  2. Do you want a custom phone case, but don’t want to pay the price? Buy a clear phone case and use scrap booking paper to customize your own! Just cut the paper to match your phone case, slide it in, and you’ve got yourself a one-of-a-kind case!
  3. Don’t know what to do with that last bit of Nutella? Throw a scope of ice cream directly into the jar and you’ve got yourself a sweet treat!
  4. Try topping your mason jar with a coffee lid! Now you’ve got a spill-proof drink!
  5. Use tape to get the perfect winged eyeliner! Just place the strip diagonally from your outer lid to keep your liner in place!
  6. Make pancakes out of cake mix for someone’s birthday!
  7. A stick of spaghetti can be lit on fire to light hard to reach candles!
  8. Mix lemon juice and baking soda together to use as a paste to remove unwanted color from a spray tan!

I hope these life hacks may help you one day in the future!!

Organization is the key to a stress-free work and school environment.  Too many people have papers flying everywhere, dates not written down, and a busy schedule.  It’s important to live an organized life in order to get things done without a hassle.  If you follow these simple organizational tips, I promise your life will be a breeze!Chelsea Crockett- organization

  • Keep a planner or use your calendar app!  Write down anything and everything that is important, an event, or something that is due.  Deadlines are important!
  • Give yourself a break!  If you work too much you will start to go crazy!  Give yourself a 10 minute break each hour to surf the web, talk to friends, or grab a snack!
  • Establish a junk drawer!  Everyone has those papers, supplies, and random things that they have no idea what to do with.  If you have one solid area that you store all of that, then they won’t end up all over your desk!
  • DO NOT procrastinate.  This is the number one reason people get stressed out and unorganized.  Do your assignments or projects as they are assigned to you so you can focus on one thing at a time.
  • Make your work space pretty!  When you have a work space that you are proud of, you are less likely to get it messy.

Staying organized is important for the road to success.  It’s also important for your sanity.  Keep it all together and you’ll start to see a difference!

XOXO,

Why do people worship idols instead of God?

Idols are simply pictures or statues of imaginary gods.  Actually, most people who have idols don’t worship the idols but the gods they represent.  Some people, however, think that an idol itself can help them.

People want to believe in things that they can see and touch, so they make things they can see.  But we cannot see God because God is spirit.  As Christians, we do not make or worship idols because idols take our attention away from worshiping the one true God.

Key Verse: John 1:18

There are many kinds of Bibles because there are many kinds of people.  But they all contain the same message.  Different Bibles meet different needs.  Some Bibles are very small so you can carry them with you.  Others are big so you can see the words better.  Some Bibles use everyday words to make the Bible easy to read  and the lessons easy to learn.  Some Bibles have notes, maps, and charts to help people understand the parts that are different from today.  The purpose of all these different Bibles is to help people understand what God is saying so they can obey him.

Key Verse: 1 Timothy 4:13

Be Proactive, It’ll Get You Somewhere!

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens, written by Sean Covey, gives teens the 7 most effective ways to succeed in life.  I know, from being a teenager myself, that being productive most of the time is very hard to do.  Hanging out with friends, going to watch basketball games, shopping, and just having a social life in general all get in the way of becoming the best person you can be.  By adopting these seven habits, you will be on your way to being very effective!   

Habit #1 is being proactive.  What does being proactive mean??  Proactive people make life choices based on value.  You can’t control everything that happens to you, but you can control the way it affects you.  Will you let it ruin your day or will you move on and laugh it off?  You can’t sweat the small stuff!  The opposite of being proactive is being reactive.  Reactive people say the first thing that comes to mind and let things get to them.  In the long run, being reactive won’t get you anywhere.  It will just eat you up inside.  The way you respond to things let people know whether you are reactive or proactive.  Do you say “Ok I’ll try?”  Or do you say “Ok I’ll do it!” “I can’t do that” or “There’s got to be a way to do that!”  A proactive person takes a positive spin on everything.

Being proactive will get you places in life.  It helps you get the job done and gives others a great outlook on the type of person you are.  Do you want to hang out with someone who is negative or positive all the time?  Now, I know life isn’t perfect and that bad things happen to good people, but how will you let it affect you?

Prom month, during my junior year of high school, was extremely stressful.  Being a chair in charge of decorating was a task within itself.  I was paired up with a friend who I knew would help me do a great job with decorating coronation.  The night before prom rolled around and it was time to start decorating the center stage of prom night….the stage where the king and queen would be crowned!  I looked all around for my partner and she had been pulled by a teacher to do some other things.  So, I started decorating on my own.  My partner helped when she could.  The work became overwhelming and I called in for backup….my parents.  A few hours later we got the job done and it looked fantastic!  I couldn’t believe we had pulled it off.  It made me feel so good about our hard work and effort.  Being proactive, persistent, and staying positive were the right things to do.  Next time you’re in a tough situation will you be reactive or proactive? The choice is yours……
