Hiya friends! My favorite month is here, a month about love and sharing that love with those around you!! I wanted to share a little love for my teammates today!!
1. I LOVE this Mixed Media Play Video from Heather - something about it is so soothing, I encourage you to grab some warm tea, snuggle up with your favorite blanket and check out this inspiring video!
"Do you ever have times when you just don’t know what to do? Can I encourage you to just sit and see where things go without even thinking about it? I have to admit, this was me over the weekend. I wanted to do some Bible journaling but I was just stuck. I grabbed the Illustrated Faith Goals with Grace devotional. I’ve finished all the devotionals, I just haven’t done much illustrating of them and I really really wanted to get them in my Bible not just my devotional booklet. I literally just took my pink big brush marker and highlighted all the passages but that’s as far as I got. I was drawing a blank on what I wanted to do in the margins though."

2. If you haven't checked out Bailey's Worth the Wait series, TRUST me you want to head over there, you are certain to feel the LOVE and the heart behind her articles!
"When you’re in a season of waiting, it is important to surround yourself with encouraging people and messages. In the darkest nights and hardest times, I there are certain gal pals I can text, scripture I can quote, and worship music I put on repeat. All of these are gifts from the Lord, and He is ready and willing to draw near in those hard moments.
Over the past two years, there has been one song in particular that washes over my soul bringing a breath of fresh air, and I wanted to take some time to share that with you and document this part of my season in the Bible. Bethany Dillon was a favorite worship artist from my high school years, and one day an unfamiliar song came over the speakers and turned me into a puddle of tears."

3. Love = Amy's watercolor pages! Like seriously #allthehearteyes!!!!
"Greetings Beloved Illustrated Faith Family!
As I prayed about this month’s posts, I asked the Lord to place in my mind what He wanted me to bring to you.
He has been speaking Psalm 46:10 over my heart all month.
Be still, and know that I am God.
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!
And as I have been studying the phrase “be still”, one of the places that the Lord took me was the story of Jesus speaking stillness to the raging waves around the boat carrying His beloved disciples.
Here is the story in Mark 4:35-41 NIV"

4. Elaine's pages and articles are always overpouring with LOVE, and this Family Ties articles is sure to inspire!!
"I’m going to tell you a story about the first time I went to college. I was terrified. Small town girl whose family did everything together suddenly was thrown into this big campus where she didn’t know anyone. I was also prone to anxiety & homesickness, so add that to mix & it was a total nightmare scenario for me. In my head I wanted to be there, but my heart was saying “Absolutely not, no way, not in this lifetime, sister!” When my parents helped me unload my things & were getting ready to leave campus, I hugged them goodbye, looked at them & said: “You’re not really going to leave me here, are you?” It broke their hearts, but they knew it was a good experience for me."
