So my tip today is for another magazine! I love free magazines! I used to spend entirely too much money on magazines so this really helps our budget. My fee magazine for today is from Above Rubies. This is a really amazing website to encourage Christian women. I just got my first magazine yesterday and loved it! Already done reading it! They mail them out every quarter and have articles about being a wife, mother and Christian. They have great tips sent in by readers and articles from different contributors. Reading this magazine yesterday really inspired and encouraged me and that is definitely what I need right now. So go to the Above Rubies website and go sign yourself up!
Go visit Thrifty Jinxy for more Thrifty Thursday tips!

I absolutely love the blog Home Living and Lady Lydia's newest post is right up there with my favorites. I highly recommend this post and it is exactly what I needed today. Although my staying home for right now is up in the air, my opinion of the worth of a woman at home will never change. Also, while you are visiting Lady Lydia, please read some of her theme articles and let her know that I sent you! You will leave her blog feeling refreshed and encouraged and ready to start your day! I know that you will love her!

I am participating in a bible study over at In Pursuit of Proverbs 31. Since getting married I have been very interested in aspiring to become the Proverbs 31 woman. She is a wonderful role model and it takes a lifetime to become like her. But if we are not aspiring and studying her, we will not make progress.
Amy wanted us to answer some questions for the introductory post to the study and I will be updating you on the study weekly. If you would like to join, go here.
"For this introduction post, I would like for everyone who intends to participate to post about it on their blog and answer the following thought provoking questions:
What do you hope to get out of this bible study? I am hoping to become a better Christian, wife, mother and general person.
What, if anything, has prevented you from studying these scriptures in the past? I have just recently become a Christian and learned about the Proverbs 31 woman. I do regularly read that scripture but have not studied it in depth.
What have you found helpful or frustrating about living out these scriptures? I am a lazy person most of the time and have a hard time doing things on my own. I feel that I am finally growing up and accepting my responsibilities even though I have been in and out of the real world since I was 18. It is helpful to read other blogs about women who also aspire to be like the Proverbs 31 woman.
We got a horrible wind storm on Sunday afternoon all across the midwest! In one part of Ohio, there were winds up to 84 mph. Now I don't think it was that bad around us in Indiana but it got pretty rough. We were in church late that day and the lights kept on flickering. We didn't think anything of it and left church. It was windy but we thought we were getting storms that day. When we got home our outside plastic table was flipped over and broken and our basketball hoop was knocked over! Thank God we were in church, otherwise the basketball hoop would have fell on our car! It got pretty bad over here and we lost electricity for about a day and lost more than half of the siding on our house. But in comparison with a lot of other people we did okay. Kentucky and Cincinnati are saying that this is the worst power outage of all time. At one point, 1 million people were out of power in Cincinnati! They may not have power for the rest of the week! My parents and inlaws still don't have power! We are very fortunate to get our power back so early! I think this storm helped us to see that we need to be more prepared for emergencies in the future. Luckily we had the candles from our wedding a few months back so we had light! Please pray for everyone in our area right now!
