God can Heal a Broken Heart but He has to have all the Pieces.

Isaiah 40:31 but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength, they will soar on wings like eagles, they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

Magical Monday and Blog of the Month Voting!! Day 7 of BC

Go over to For the Love of Blogs

and check out my giveaway they are hosting and nominate me for BLOG OF THE MONTH!!

Day 7: Holiday Craft/DIY
So this one is kind of hard for me because I never really can come up with a craft of my own. The only two that were ever my idea was Ava's reward chart and their hairbow holders. I have posted it in the past but will post it again just for this challenge~

Ava's Reward Chart

I used soft felt and cut out shapes to stick up on the big piece of thicker felt board. When she does all of her tasks and behavior for the day she gets to put one of her shapes on the board. When she gets 7 shapes on the board, she gets $4 since she is 4 years old. And she uses her money to save up for things she wants to have. It has been very effective but she does have many days when there is no reward given :( ~but it keeps her trying harder for the next day. Thought I would share with you.
We have now added $1 extra if she memorizes her scripture verse for the week, yep, she is breaking the bank!!

For the hairbow holder
One piece of unpainted wood (gotten from Hobby Lobby) it can be any shape, I chose oval.
One unpainted letter

It's pretty simple, I painted the oval and the letter and glued the letter on with super glue and then I hung a piece of ribbon from the back. I picked up a cute little crown from there too, they have so many designs to choose from. Wa La a hairbow holder, I made one for my other daughter as well.

With Love,


  1. Hi Heather - I stopped over from For the Love of Blogs. I love the quote you have at the top of your blog, "God can heal a broken heart, but He has to have all the pieces." He can bring complete healing, but we have to give Him it all to Him - completely.
    Your hair bow holder is so cute. Too bad I don't have a little girl. :)
    Many Blessings,
