This album has been encouraging me so much. I love every song on it. I especially like “Reason I Sing” and “House of the Lord”.
“The Worship Project” by Jeremy Camp & Adrienne Camp
The songs on this album are true worship songs that point to Jesus. I appreciate this about these songs. This was truly needed in the days we are living in.
“Woven and Spun” by Nichole Nordeman
I think Nichole is a brilliant songwriter. I can relate so much to her songs. I hope these songs will reach your hearts as well. One of my favorite songs on this album is called “I Am”. I cry each time I listen to it.
“Portals” by Fleurie
I highly recommend this album, it will take you on a beautiful adventure. I could not find the album playlist but here is a playlist of her songs.
“Her Heart Sings Volume 2” by Sounds like Reign
I love this band that includes their entire family. This album only features one of them but I want to share it because I love the hymns.
I hope that you will give these a listen and add some of these artists to your playlist. What are some of your favorite albums?

Excellent water bottles
In my opinion, the best type of water bottle to take with you on your next summer outing is a stainless steel water bottle. This bottle will keep your water ice cold from the moment you leave home to the end of the day and beyond. I left my bottle in a car on one of those 100 degree days and the water remained at the same cold temperature.
Waterproof phone cases
These days our cell phones come with us wherever we go, and the beach or pool is no exception. Waterproof phone cases have made it possible to take those pool pics from inside the water. The phone case I have is made of a soft plastic and you have full use of the phone while it is in the case.
Summer skincare and haircare
I highly recommend Burt’s Bees skincare products for every season. Summer days require good moisturizers and cleansers. I highly recommend the Daily Face Moisturizer for Sensitive Skin and the Face Cleanser for Sensitive Skin. I also recommend the original lip balm by Burt’s Bees.
I recently found a product to refresh my hair on those summer days and it also has a great fresh scent. It is the Oyin Handmade Juices and Berries Herbal Leave-In Hair Tonic. I like this because it is natural and it leaves my hair soft and refreshed and it really does smell like berries.
I am a Christian and I believe in dressing modestly. I also believe that as a woman I should wear skirts and dresses. I found a small business started by a Christian mother that created a solution for her and her daughters to be able to have modest swimwear. The business is called Cute and Covered.
The swimwear they offer are swim dresses. It is a one-piece swimsuit with leggings that go to the knee with a skirt over the leggings and a zipper in the back. The swimsuit can also be worn with the zipper side in the front for those that are nursing babies. I usually wear it with a zipper in the front because it is easier for me to get the swimsuit on and off.
This is not sponsored by Cute and Covered. I just wanted to share these modest swimsuits and I really love the variety of colors and patterns that are available.
You can purchase premade swimsuits that are available in a range of sizes from children to adults, and if you are good at sewing you can purchase digital patterns along with all the materials you will need to make your own swimsuit from them as well.
Well I may be late to the party on this one but I recently got a pair of crocks. I really like them and they are very comfortable. I was also recently introduced to jibbitz and was given a New York Yankees jibbit that I now have on my right shoe.
There is not much else that screams summer than sitting by the pool or by the ocean with an ice cold cup with your favorite drink.
I would say that lemonade is my favorite summer drink. It always cools me down. I also love lemon slushies.
Some extra thoughts
I have also shared my summer favorites in a video, you can watch the video below to get a closer look at some of the items I have shared.

Well, the time has come for me to give an update on how far I have come when it comes to my fitness goals. I had hoped to exercise each day starting in January but I did not meet that goal. The truth is that I have only recently started exercising more frequently in june.
I have started walking for 15 minutes following the Walk at Home program. I enjoy it and I find that it gives me more energy the more that I consistently walk.
I have also been more aware of the amount of calories I take in each day. I did some research to get an idea of how many calories I should be eating each day. I use the My Plate app to help me track what I eat. I am not very concerned with accurate calorie count because I am not using this for weight loss but it helps me have a rough idea of how much i take in. This has made me pay more attention to what I eat and helps me not to over do it.
I hope to exercise more often this second half of 2021. I want to work up to the 2-mile Walk at Home program in the coming months. I will give you an update on how it goes for me at the end of the year. These are tips that help me and if you want to become more fit i recommend you to speak to your doctor and do your own research to find what will work best for you. What is your favorite way to exercise?
