Faith Matters: Words to Remember

Mini-Makeover #42

Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds… Deuteronomy 11:19

Dallas Willard, professor of Philosophy at the University of Southern California, wrote, “If I had to choose between all the disciplines of the spiritual life, I would choose Bible memorization, because it is a fundamental way of filling our minds with what it needs.”

Chuck Swindoll wrote, “I know of no other single practice in the Christian life more rewarding, practically speaking, than memorizing Scripture. . . . No other single exercise pays greater spiritual dividends! Your prayer life will be strengthened. Your witnessing will be sharper and much more effective. Your attitudes and outlook will begin to change. Your mind will become alert and observant. Your confidence and assurance will be enhanced. Your faith will be solidified.”

In this Faith Matters study we will learn the basic of memory verses, share favorite verses, learn memorization techniques and tips, and create memory verse cards. Includes a printable page of 8 business-card sized-memory verses.

Cosmetic Control

Mini-Makeover #41

If you are among the ten percent of women that are not serial-cosmetic purchasers, you can skip this Mini-Makeover. However, if you own more than ten lipsticks, consider this Mini.  (Or if you own more than three eye-shadow compacts and one has blue eyeshadow or is ten years old or older.)

Many women are drawn to cosmetics like a magnet. Before we know it, we are buried in every possible color, brand, shade, and option. Good makeup and skincare can make us feel  wonderful. The wrong makeup and skin care can have the exact opposite effect. n this Mini-Makeover we work through our cosmetic stations to refine and purge and create sets of complimentary colors that leave us feeling beautiful. We will work step-by-step through the following:

  • The Big Sort: Getting A Grip on Your Stockpile
  • Makeup Gone Bad: Learn how long items “keep” before becoming ineffective or bacteria-carriers
  • Color me beautiful: Learn which colors compliment your skin tone, eyes, and features
  • A Fantastic Face: Assemble “kits” for different looks - day, night, warm, cool
  • The Purge: A step-by-step plan for working through all the miscellaneous makeup
