A Few of My Favorite Things | April 2013

I know I always love learning about new things from other people. I don’t think any of these things are new, but I thought I would share with you a few things that I am loving right now. I would love to hear what you are loving, leave a note in the comments!

Beth Moore – I did my first Beth Moore Study when I was a Senior in college, and I just fell in love. I love her teaching and studies and I love how much she loves God’s Word. I love her books and studies, and I also love listening to her online. I have been a bit under the weather this week, so I got to spend a good chunk of the day yesterday listening to her talks online…it was so refreshing. Though her Bible Studies are written for women, I have to admit that even Jeremy has done one of her studies and enjoyed it.

iPad Mini – We decided to purchase an iPad mini for business reasons, but I admit that I have claimed it as my own. I love reading blogs, using my You Version app, and using it for social media. Stella loves playing games on it, and I have had a bit of a hard time prying it out of her hands. The only downside is that it makes my iphone screen look so tiny.

You Version – I have had this free Bible app for awhile, and I am really enjoying it on the iPad. Recently I have used it more as I have gone through a few She Reads Truth devotionals. Though I still prefer holding my Bible in my hands, the app is great when you are out and about or when Stella falls asleep on me.

Biscoff Cookies – You may have had these without realizing it. They are the cookies that they give you on an airplane. I have always loved them on the plane, but because they are European cookies, they were not available for purchase in the United States. I found them while grocery shopping a few weeks ago, and was so excited to find out they are available in the US now. They are basically cinnamon cookies…and they are delicious…you should go get some.

Right now I’m loving Teavana teas. I’m still a coffee drinker, but the amazing selection of teas – from light (watermelon mint)and sweet (strawberry chocolate, anyone?) to spicy (Samurai Chai)and bold (Maharaja Chai, oooh).

We bought an infuser that pours directly into your cup (without the tea leaves!). It started innocently enough with me purchasing an infuser for hubby since he started drinking tea this winter. Then we had to get a bigger one to make more tea. Then my mom saw it and bought one for herself. Then she bought one for her sister. Then she bought one for camp. Then I showed it to my friend, she bought one. Then I bought one for my other friend’s birthday. I tell you, the Sudbury, Ontario store must love me – I’ve been “promoting” this tea contraction to everyone… haha!

The other cool part is that you can mix and match some teas (kind of like mixing spices when you cook). My favourite strong tea match is the JavaVana Mate (has caffeine) and the Maharaja Chai Oolong. Spicy chocolaty tea. YUM

Oh, and it is an art to make tea – it’s like a cool, fun Science experiment – put the water at this temperature and steep for this amount of time.

The types of tea and their health benefits are pretty crazy too :)

Let us know if you visit a tea place and try out the different teas :)

Kristin, I love biscoff cookies as well. That’s one of the reason why I love flying Delta! What supermarket did you find them in?

Kristin Schmucker

I actually found them at Walmart!

I love YouVersion! Free and works amazing! I have it on my phone for Church when I accidentally forget my Bible at home and doing my devotions!
