your favorite iphone apps

k friends...

here's your chance! if you've never commented before, i *really* would love to hear from you on this. i want to know which iPhone apps you just can't live without. i say that fully knowing, of course, you could actually live without all of them.. but you know what i mean, right? k. so i'm looking for:

1. a good Bible reading/tracking app 
2. a planner/calendar type app
3. a good [and easy] photo editor [shauna, i'm counting on you here]
4. whatever you use to read all your blogs in one place
5. anything else awesome that i didn't even know i needed ;)

so far i've downloaded "Baby Log" which helps you track newborn baby type stuff: feedings, diaper changes, sleeping, etc. i'll be needing that feb.1

i've downloaded instagram and hootsuite and i've been recommended "Cozi" [family calendar/planner] and "Reading Plan" [Bible reading]. is there anything better than you know of?

what else do i need to know?

[oh, and when you tell me which apps i need, tell me what they do/why i need them. does that sound bossy?]

also, if you missed it, go to this post and vote for your favorite "button" design. too many fun things!


  1. OH! I can’t wait to read all the fun answers… Especially one for BLOGS!
    I like Cozi {but I am more of a handwritten calendar girl}
    Words with Friends is a scrabble~like game that is super fun (I’m KimberleeHaag} ;)
    FB, Twitter, and Pinterest are apps I can’t live without
    Joannes app {for coupons}
    and Pandora {music}

  2. 1. I LOVE Cozi. ( you can even sync calendars that are already on the Internet so you don't have to renter them ie: Joel's football schedule)
    2. I like feedler to read all my blogs but others are fine too.
    3. I'm not big on catching up on the news but I like Editions so I can catch up on only things I care about and filter out yucky stuff that I don't want to hear about.
    4. Photogene and 8mm HD are my favorite photo editing apps
    5. I like the reading plans and free daily devotionals included in the Bible by You Version
    6. Spring pad and Evernote are my favorite apps for keeping track of ideas I have, websites I like, recipes I want to try, etc
    7. Maddie's favorites are Monkey preschool lunchbox, fancy nancy, my play home, cosmo's day off, and nighty night. (if you plan on sharing with the kids)
    Hope this was helpful. It was so great getting to see you last week. I absolutely love how your house is decorated.

  3. I did it again... The last post was me.

  4. thanks amberly! plenty of suggestions to keep me busy over the next few days :)

  5. I love the app 'Shop Ethical' I use it when I go shopping so I can see what the brands I buy are up to. I just love coming out of the supermarket knowing my shopping doesnt support child slavery etc...
    :) I also love 'My Fitness Pal' Where I store what I have eaten that day and it lets me know how many calories I have left and also how much nutrition I have eaten that day.

  6. The one shauna showed me for photos was "snapseed". Love it!

hope spoken 2014 | a little recap

well. it feels weird to be back here in this space. i haven't regularly blogged for over a year. i'm feeling like it's time for a redesign but that's beside the point. i'm really here to tell you about Hope Spoken conference that i attended in dallas 2 weekends ago. everyone has been saying how they need time to process everything. i'm no exception. what i'm about to share is really an email i wrote to casey and danielle a few days after i got home, but i've edited and expanded a little. there is still so much more in my heart and mind that's not quite ready to come out:

i'm finally sitting down to pour out my heart after such an amazing weekend. the first thing that's hitting me is these three girls went with a dream and a mission and a calling from Jesus, and were brave to walk through the door and keep going, as danielle describes it. i'm sure they imagined how beautiful it would be but i don't think they could have imagined just …

the idol self-sufficiency

"O God of mine, I'll have no idols..." played over Pandora. "O God of Mine", an old song by Rita Springer, is a beautiful hymn-like melody with soothing vocals and peaceful piano music. deep in thought, as i always am, i was struggling with feelings of fear and shame that had been pulling me under the last few months. i'm determined to be free from its grip, so i'm digging in to find the roots and i'm arming myself with Truth and with practical tools. as that phrase sang form the speakers, it just flickered across my mind -- the idol of self sufficiency. i had never named it before, but i finally understood it as a huge aspect of my struggle with fear and a huge aspect of the burden of shame that i carry. (i wrote a little bit about that here)

now you're thinking i must be a planner, a doer, and get-things-done kind of gal. you're thinking i must run a pretty tight ship, i must be type-A.

and you'd be wrong. self-sufficiency is a idol f…

because He became a man

recently i had one of those days where my to-do list consisted of six different super-quick errands. seems simple enough to most people. before kids you could knock them all out in less than an hour and go about your day. but with kids, forget about it. you dread the outing for two days and put it off until you have no more food or toothpaste and your husband is wondering about the dry-cleaning and the alterations.

when you have to strap and unstrap three kids into their carseats for six different super-quick errands, it's a whole new kind of monster. it takes longer to get them in and out of the car than the amount of time we actually spend inside the post office, or the dry cleaner, or the bank. multiply that by six and we're all going crazy.

truly, there needs to be a drive-through dry cleaner, drive through full-service post office window, drive through banking (not just ATM but actually denominations-other-than-twenty banking), and a drive-up pre-order Target service woul…
