What to Wear

So, chosen by God for this new life of love, dress in the wardrobe God picked out for you: compassion, kindness, humility, quiet strength, discipline. Be even-tempered, content with second place, quick to forgive an offense. Forgive as quickly and completely as the Master forgave you. And regardless of what else you put on, wear love. It's your basic, all-purpose garment. Never be without it.
- Colossians 3:12-14 (The Message)

Asking a Favor

This post has little to do with "beauty," thought it is beautiful news to my ears. My book, Hannah's Hope: Seeking God's Heart in the Midst of Infertility, Miscarriage & Adoption Loss has been nominated by the oldest, and one of the largest, infertility support networks in the nation, as one of the top four "best" infertility books for 2010. Their selections are now open for public vote and I would so appreciate if if you would take a moment and visit to cast a vote for Hannah's Hope in the "best book" category. Thank you so very much!!!

hCG diet and mineral makeup

I've just recently been hearing about the hCG diet. One unique requirement of the this diet is that you cannot use many beauty products such as lotions or liquid makeups because of your body's sensitivity to fats, creams and oils during this process. Such products could slow your weight loss process down. You can, however, use mineral makeup while using the hCG diet!

Honestly, I don't really know enough about the hCG diet to have an informed personal opinion yet, but the owner of Affordable Mineral Makeup™ is offering a unique opportunity for a 12% discount off your entire Affordable Mineral Makeup™ order if you will take a moment and learn about the hcg diet for yourself.

When you follow her above link to you will learn more about the hCG diet and find your discount code (hint: it's toward the bottom of the page, just above the comments section and mineral makeup button) for 12% off your order. If you would then be so kind as to please return to my consultant link at to actually place your mineral makeup order, the same discount code will be honored through my page until june 1st, 2011 and I would appreciate your personal business. Thank you so much!

One Size?

My dear friend Holley Gerth is currently posting a series on God-sized Dreams. I'm thrilled to welcome Holley here as a guest blogger today:
God-sized dreams...aren't one size fits all

Vintage dress pattern photo by Laineys Repertoire (flickr) My friend Kim and I ventured out for a little resale shopping recently. One particular store had a hot pink neon sign, loud music, and gum-popping teenagers behind the counters.

I tried on my usual size but it seemed those jeans must have been designed for Barbie. At any rate, my hips weren't having any of it.

So I reached for a shirt that looked more like a bib. That was followed by a dress that would have barely covered my bellybutton. Ahem.

When it comes to dreams, it seems to go much the same way. I think, "Oh, that dream looks so cute on her! I want that one too!" So I try it on and it doesn't fit my heart any better than those jeans fit my hips.

I keep trying other dreams until I sink to the floor of life's dressing room in discouragement. Or worse yet, I go out looking like someone Stacey and Clinton should nab for What Not to Wear as quickly as possible.

But I'm learning something beautiful. Although God's dreams aren't one size fits all like I sometimes wish they could be, He's created particular ones just for us and they fit who we are perfectly.

We don't have to settle for off-the-rack dreams or someone else's discards. No, ma'am, we've got a divine tailor who does nothing but high end, one-of-a-kind couture.

True God-sized dreams feel like they're made just for you...

because they are.

And you're made just for them, just for Him, too.

Now that's simply stunning.

Great thought on transforming beauty from my friend Marlo Schalesky in her new book Shades of Morning:
"He who transformed the cross from a implement of execution to a symbol of redemption can transform ANYTHING in your life for His glory."

30% Savings & FREE shipping!

Can you please help me make a sale's goal? When I place just $200 in total orders between now and midnight Wednesday, I will earn a 5% commission bonus on all future orders! This is a pretty big deal, so I'm willing to sacrifice a big chunk of my commissions on this weeks' sales AND pay for your shipping if you can help me make this goal. There is no sales tax for anyone unless you live in the state of Florida (where Affordable Mineral Makeup™ is located).

Please visit and explore Affordable Mineral Makeup™ using the "Shop" link located toward the bottom of the page there. Then email me your mineral makeup order at innerbeauty @ AffordableMineralMakeup Dot com between now and 6pm on Wednesday, June 9th. While I typically encourage orders to be placed through the website, for this special offer you must email your orders directly to me as I'm offering the discount personally, not through the company. You are still welcome to order directly through my website link for faster fulfillment of your order, but will not be able to receive the discount or free shipping that way.

When I get your order and confirm in stock inventory (please do pay attention to any "out of stock" notations on product descriptions on the website), I'll send you a paypal invoice reflecting a 30% discount off the retail price listed on the website and get your order placed. Orders will take a bit longer for you to receive because they will all be shipped to me then I'll have to turn around and ship them on to you next week, but the savings make a few days delay worthwhile, don't you think? :)

Please feel free to share this offer with anyone you would like and have them mention 30% in the subject line so I know they are placing an order in response to this offer. Remember, this offer expires on Wednesday evening at 6pm Pacific (to give me time to compile orders and get them placed prior to my midnight EST deadline). Looking forward to hearing from you at innerbeauty @ AffordableMineralMakeup Dot com
