This simple card is my first sample as the eP friend of the week! I have to tell you that Joy and Daisy are my friends in real life as well as through their store. It is hard NOT to point you to their store for crafting supplies when I share my creations because I love their stuff, their prices, and their customer service is great too! So check out my blog this week for more cards and projects made with the fun products you can buy at Eclectic Paperie! I have some very fun projects to share!

I also plan on doing cards one class, altering a wooden picture frame, making clear marble magnets and decorating t-shirts. Should be a lot of fun and I hope to take more pictures this time around.

In the Bible Jesus often went to those that others considered "hopeless," people that probably had lost hope themselves, and He healed them. He often healed their physical ailments, but He also healed their spiritual ailments. There was no one too dirty, too sinful, too hopeless to heal.
He still heals today.
Nicole C Mullen was another one of the singers/speakers at the Women of Faith conference. One of the songs she performed was called "One Touch." It is a song about the story from Luke 8:43-48, where a woman who had been struggling with a bleeding problem for 12 years reached through a crushing crowd just to touch the hem of Jesus' garment and be healed. But the song isn't just about that Bible story, it is also about people today. People who are pushed down by their issues and are longing for some hope. Reach out and touch him, He is right there waiting, He will make you whole again.

Sandi Patty also sang and talked at the conference. I remember listening to Sandi's music when I was a kid, but believe me, she can still belt it out and rock a stadium! She has a new book out that is on my have-to-read list. It is called Layers.
Every woman struggles with the feelings hidden deep within her. Coping with issues ranging from a poor body image to worries about past mistakes, she covers her guilt and pain with layers of behaviors and beliefs that keep God's grace from penetrating her heart.
In Layers, singer and WOF speaker Sandi Patty gets real by candidly revealing her own struggles. Peeling back the layers of poor choices and excesses, she shares with readers how to find the peace that comes only when she learns to be content with who God has created her to be.
In Christ alone my hope is found
He is my light, my strength, my song
This Cornerstone, this solid ground
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm
What heights of love, what depths of peace
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease
My Comforter, my All in All
Here in the love of Christ I stand
In Christ alone, who took on flesh
Fullness of God in helpless babe
This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones He came to save
‘Til on that cross as Jesus died
The wrath of God was satisfied
For every sin on Him was laid
Here in the death of Christ I live
There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain
Then bursting forth in glorious Day
Up from the grave He rose again
And as He stands in victory
Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me
For I am His and He is mine
Bought with the precious blood of Christ
No guilt in life, no fear in death
This is the power of Christ in me
From life’s first cry to final breath
Jesus commands my destiny
No power of hell, no scheme of man
Can ever pluck me from His hand
‘til He returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand.

Right side of living room and looking into the hallway."master" bedroom. Looking in from the door. The wall you can't see across from the bed has a closet. For a picture of the other bedroom look back to my moving day post. The room with all the boxes is my "office." This is the sign outside my door. Pretty cool, huh? ;)
A picture of me in my office, just for fun.
