Chime in!

Last week, we talked about your spouse's greatest strength...the thing you admire the most. This week, let's look in the mirror. This is a hard question, but what do you think your spouse would say they most admire about you? What would you want them to say? If you don't know...why not ask? It could certainly be a conversation starter- and maybe an eye opener!

Monthly Challenge

Yeah!! Issue 7- October's Scrapbook News and Review has published!! This month, the topic for the faithbooking column is A Marraige of Ideals.

"Ask scrappers when they got their start and many will say when they got married. Logical, isn’t it? Marriage is the start of a new life together; it makes sense to start chroniciling that life. But, if the only thing you scrap about your marriage is your wedding, you’re missing some great, God-given opportunities!"

I would encourage anyone to stop by the magazine and read the column this month, for great- hands on ways to scrap your marraige, enrich your commitment to your spouse, and encourage your beloved in a very real way!!

Meanwhile, the challenge for this month is to scrap a page about your spouse. Tell them how you feel, encourage them, or remember why you love them. It will encourage both of you, I promise!!

Time for another book recommendation. Did you love the Left Behind Series? I did!! Well, Tim LaHay has another series- Babylon Rising is the first book. Same style, different characters/ story. Think a Christian Indiana Jones. So fun!! Looking for a fun, but uplifting read- give this series a go!!

Simple, just for fun question, this week... What color was your first car? What color would you really love- but don't get to- to drive?

Page Prompt

This month, at A Faith Perspective, the column was about finding- and scrapping- God in the hard times. As Christians, we know that the road will not always be easy!! In fact, trials and hardships are promised to us...but it is also promised that God will stand there with us. He will be our Strength and our Shield...our Rock and our Comforter. So many promises and verses leap to mind.

This week, your challenge is to choose a favorite promise verse- one that reminds you that God will see you through the hardtimes- and scrap it. Even if you are not going through a hard time right now- just the reminder verse can be an encouragement and testimony!!

Layout of the Week

I don't think we have ever had a card for LOTW...and it is high time we fix that!! We have some awesome cardmakers out there- making some very encouraging and uplifting cards!

I have been in Christmas Card making mode lately- so when I saw this card from Judy Rozema, I fell in love! I confess, I am a sucker for layers and texture...and this card just feels so rich!! She also did an awesome job coloring it. Just a great card!!

Congrats, Judy! You are this week's Featured Layout of the Week!! Contact me at and we will get you set up with a free month of Scrapbook News and Review.

Rarely are Christians given the choice of good, life affirming movies. So when one pops deserves a mention!! Here's an excert from Christianity Today's Review:

The story this time concerns a firefighter named Caleb Holt (Kirk Cameron) whose wife of seven years, Catherine (Erin Bethea), wants a divorce. Caleb is ready to give up on the marriage altogether, but his father, John (Harris Malcom), gives him a book called The Love Dare and challenges him to follow its steps before throwing in the towel. Since Fireproof has been endorsed by a plethora of marriage ministries, you can pretty much guess how things will turn out. But the Kendricks earn their resolution this time; instead of dropping miracles and messages from God on their characters, they keep the story focused on the Holts and driven by the choices that the Holts make.

For more of the review, check here.

Just something to think about the next time your family is choosing a movie...

Featured Layout of the Week


This week's featured layout is even a topic we've talked about here at AFP- why do you faithbook? I firmely believe in using our family albums to Glorify God, to teach His lessons, and and to recognize the ways God has been faithful in our daily lives.   That's me... here is the layout Lucy did to answer this question.  Isn't it a beauty?!  I love all the textures and flowers!

Congrats, Lucy, for being this week's Featured Layout of the Week!!  If you send my an email at I can get you started with a free month at Scrap News.
