Spending alone time with God is one of my favorite parts of my day. It’s my time to sit and give my undivided attention to him.

If you have trouble figuring out where to start during your quiet times, you can follow this easy template that breaks up the passages into four different parts: scripture, observation, application, and prayer.

Scripture:

First, start by figuring out what chapter of the Bible you want to begin with. Ephesians or Philippians is a great place to start since they’re smaller chapters and are easier to get through! Write out the verses in your journal and meditate on them. Read over them several times if you have to. We are more likely to remember things when we write them down, so do this as many times as you need/want to!

Observation:

Review the chapter or passages that you read over, and write down everything that you observe or realize. When we write things out and put things onto paper, it’s easier to explore our thoughts and remember them, too. We want to get as deep as we can with the verses we mediate on, so observe everything you can, even if you didn’t notice it the first time through!

Application:

One of the most important parts of your life walking alongside God is how you take what you learn and apply it to your life. When you read a passage from the Bible, you should always be thinking about how you can incorporate that into your daily life.

For example, let’s look at Joshua 1:8-9: “Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

What can you take away from this to apply to your life? Meditate on his word, be strong and courageous, do not be afraid… Write down every possible thing you can do to improve your life.

Prayer:

Lastly, take what you wrote down and make it into a prayer. Ask God for help with applying these things to your life. Praise him for what he’s teaching you and for what he’s going to do within you. Just talk to him! Reflect with him, thank him, and ask him for the things you need.

These personal prayers are good to keep in a prayer journal to look back and reflect on. Whenever you may be going through something that one of these verses talks about, you could go back to your prayer pertaining to it and talk to God!

At the end of the day, God loves spending time with us whether you’re reading a devotional, listening to worship music, or making use of this quiet time template. I encourage you to start somewhere by trying this out for yourself!

Milk and honey are the perfect combination. Not only do they smell great together, but are smoothing, conditioning, cleansing, and can even clear up acne! It can be hard to come across an all-natural soap that isn’t filled with extra dyes or chemicals. Luckily, making your own is just as easy as grabbing some at the store. Check it out!Chelsea Crockett- soap mold

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 3 tablespoons of Organic Raw Honey
  • 1 pound of Goat’s Milk Soap Base
  • Silicone Mold

Start by cutting the block of goat’s milk soap base into small cubes. Place the cubes in a big, microwavable bowl, microwaving for 30 seconds at a time and stirring in between. Once the soap base is completely melted, add the 3 tablespoons of honey and mix again. Pour the final mixture into the silicone soap mold, some come in really cute shapes, and wait until the soap has hardened. There is no need to place it in the refrigerator. The soap will harden at room temperature and can take up to 2 hours. Use this soap for yourself or give it away as a nice, homemade gift. You’ll never want to buy soap again!

XOXO,

Rules to Healthier Skin

Having clear, healthy skin is an automatic self-esteem booster!  Unfortunately, maintaining clear skin can be a challenge.  It’s almost impossible to keep zits off our faces!!  Luckily, there are things you can do in your everyday life to keep pimples away and clear skin in the forefront.

  1. Establish a daily morning and night routine. This routine should consist of a complete face wash followed with moisturizer.
  2. Keep greasy, oily foods to a minimum. Your skin reacts by producing zits when you consume these types of foods.
  3. Make sure to get 7-8 hours of sleep every night! “Beauty rest” is the real deal!
  4. Try incorporating healthy skin foods into your diet like fish, avocados, pomegranates, and tomatoes.Chelsea Crockett- eat healthy for your skin
  5. Go without makeup! Whenever you’re having a lazy day, take a break from makeup and never wear it to sleep. Your skin needs to breathe every once in a while.
  6. Try not to touch your face. Your hands carry dirt and oil that should stay off your face!
  7. Always wear sunscreen. This will keep your skin looking youthful longer.
  8. Exfoliate a few times a week! Your skin needs a good deep cleaning every so often.
  9. Never over wash or over moisturize your face. Your skin creates natural oils that are healthy for the skin. If you are constantly washing them off, then your skin will react by creating more oil. Yuck!

If you live by these skin conscious rules, then you’ll be on the right track to clear, healthy skin all the time!

Love,

Chelsea

When it comes to being a girl, getting a breakout is our worst nightmare!  They’re very sneaky.  You can go to bed with flawless skin and wake up with a face covered in zits!  When, what, where, how?!?!  Although zits popping up unexplainably are something that’s hard to control, there is a method to stop all the madness.  Find out how you can stop a breakout…FAST!

If you often find yourself out in the sun with sweat beads dripping down your forehead, it’s best to always keep facial cleansing wipes on hand.  Wiping away sweat with these moist toilettes will keep sweat out of your pores and open them up instead.  This will allow your skin to breathe.

Being in a routine is key to healthy skin.  Find a beauty regime (including soap and moisturizer) that you find effective.  Be sure to wash your face every morning and Chelsea Crockett- honey face masknight, and never skip using moisturizer.  Many people believe that moisturizer causes skin to be oily, thus creating more zits.  This is exactly the opposite.  Instead, try switching to a water-based or gel moisturizer to keep oil under control and pimples at ease.  If you’re in a hurry to clear a breakout, go into your kitchen pantry and grab the honey jar!  Honey is known to reduce redness.  Put this on your face for 10 minutes like you would a normal face mask and wash it off with a damp towel.  Within a couple hours, redness from any visible pimples should be reduced!

Don’t freak out if you get a breakout!  There’s a way to cure it all!

XOXO,
