Before the wrath

 


 

 I grew up in church all my lif but yet this movie brought me to a new understanding 

This movie is rated #1 for Christian movie in America 

 As much as I study the Bible, I am amazed at what little I do know and how this movie has opened up a whole new realm of understanding. I feel like I need to watch it several more times just to be sure I didn't miss anything in it's teaching. You will not be disappointed...if you believe, your faith will grow stronger. If you don't believe, this might do it! Praise God for people like Brent Miller Jr., and Ingenuity Films for bringing this truth to life!

 I could keep re-watching this and learn more each time about how Gods perfect love is revealed for all of his children and how we must prepare ourselves for Jesus' return. The movie is so profound, showing the new discoveries that the Jewish Galilean customs at the time of Christ is an exact model of why Christ left to prepare a place for us in Heaven and will return for us.

I would give it a 5 STAR rating.  THIS IS—A MUST SEE DOCUMENTARY!

 This would make a great stocking stuffer for anyone in your life.. you can buy it here

Big Home Improvements Worth Investing In'

Investing in home improvements can increase the value of your home but also, and perhaps more importantly, make your life better. By making improvements to your home, you can give yourself more living space, make your environment more comfortable and enjoyable, and protect the future of your home too. Home improvements can be big or small, but carrying out large improvements can be nerve-wracking. They're expensive and time-consuming, which might make you reluctant to invest in them. However, even big home improvements are worth the time and expense if you choose the right ones. Here are some top home improvements that are good to invest in.


New Bathroom or Kitchen


If you want to renovate just one room in your home, choosing a bathroom or the kitchen can often make sense. It requires more work and expense than redecorating in other rooms, but you can also get more dramatic results. It could make the biggest difference in your life and enjoyment of your home. Plus, if you're planning on selling in the future, it could increase the value of your home. A new bathroom or kitchen could be more affordable than you think, and it doesn't just make your home look better, but also gives you more practical spaces to use.


A New Roof


Your home's roof protects it, ensuring it can survive different weather conditions and keeping you warm and dry. Eventually, a roof needs to be replaced if you want to continue to protect your home. An old roof may end up needing many costly repairs and can leave your home looking rundown too. Expert roofing contractors can help you with the replacement of your roof, from advising on materials to carrying out all of the work. A new roof could improve insulation, prevent problems like leaks, and boost the aesthetics of your home too.

Converting a Loft/Attic or Basement


An attic or basement space will often end up being used as storage. However, if you don't use these spaces or you think they could be more useful, converting them is a smart idea. It gives you the opportunity to increase your living space, whether you choose to add an extra bedroom, a hobby room or get creative and set up a bar, an extra dining space, a home cinema, or anything else that you can think of. Depending on how finished your attic or basement already is, you might have to do a fair amount of work to prepare it, but it could give you a large, open space.


Additions and Extensions


Another way to add living space to your home is to build an addition or extend an existing room. Knocking out an exterior wall to create a bigger kitchen or adding extra rooms to your home might take a long time, but it can greatly improve your home. Whether you want to add value or just have more space to enjoy, you could build another bedroom, add a bathroom or do anything else to improve your home.


Invest in improving your home, and you can create a home that you'll love for many years to come.

Calendar To Treat Yourself This Holiday Season

 25 Days of Self-Care

Self-care is often overlooked. Especially this year, as quarantine, stress and uncertainty has taken over a majority of our lives. Nonetheless, taking care of yourself is extremely important, as it helps encourage maintaining a healthy relationship with yourself and others. 


With the holidays coming up, stress seems to consume us even more due to the pressures that accompany the holiday season — travel plans, hosting relatives and finding the perfect gifts for all your friends and family. So this year, gift yourself by filling your calendar with some holiday self-care!


Below is a list of ideas that tend to the mind, body and soul so you can get started on your self-care journey.

Self Reflection Journaling

One fantastic way to calm the mind and unwind after a long stressful day is to journal. Practicing self-reflection journaling can help you set goals for yourself, become more mindful or have a safe place to vent your feelings. If you aren’t sure where to start, check out this free journal entry printable complete with mindful prompts.

Get Moving

Getting your heart rate up increases happy hormones like serotonin and dopamine, so incorporating exercise into your routine is a great form of self-care. This doesn’t require a long hard workout either! You could do a simple 30 minute circuit, go on a brisk walk, dance or practice some yoga. Yoga is known for easing symptoms of stress and anxiety so it’s a great practice to incorporate in a morning or evening routine.

Write Yourself a Love Letter

An important aspect of self-care is being kind to yourself and practicing self-love, so start by writing yourself a thoughtful love letter. Jot down things you love and admire about yourself, no matter how big or small they might be. If you are in need of a place to begin, check out this printable self-love letter to get you started.

Take a Detox Bath

There’s nothing like a nice detox bath to wash all the worries away. Take some time to create a relaxing bathroom environment by lighting a candle and pouring a glass of wine or cup of tea so you can get ready for a nice detoxifying soak in your tub. Use some epsom salts, baking soda and a few drops of your favorite essential oil and soak for at least 20 minutes, using this time to focus on yourself and relax.

Do Something Nice For Someone Else

Helping others does so much good for our mental health. Since the holiday season is a time for giving, try doing something nice for someone else, whether it's volunteering at a local organization, donating to charity or buying a meal for the person behind you in line at the drive thru. Another fun and cute way to brighten someone’s day is by surprising them with one of these punny and positive holiday cards! You can put these in a neighbor’s mailbox, on the windshield of someone’s car or mail them to a friend to let them know you are thinking about them.


Self-care is all about pampering yourself and making yourself feel good, so do whatever makes you happy and feel nourished!

Here's How To Prepare And Potentially Prevent A Home Disaster'

 There are numerous issues that you can face with your property. If you’re not prepared for the problems then you could find yourself facing massive bills further down the line. Here are some of the ways that you can prevent disaster and ensure that you are ready for some of the greatest challenges that you could face with your home

Upgrade Your Security


You might also want to think about investing in new security options for your home. If you look at the stats, you’ll notice that levels of violent crime have dropped considerably. However, petty crimes such as theft are still at quite high levels. As such, you might want to think about looking at some of the latest security features for your home. For instance, you could consider investing in new CCTV systems. While CCTV systems used to only be an option for businesses, these days it is quite common for them to be used on homes too. Alternatively, you might want to consider upgrading the locks on your property. Digital locks can be more secure than typical locks that open with keys. You just need to make sure that you are investing in quality devices here and that you do find the right supplier. 


Check Your Insurance


You should always check the insurance coverage that you have for your property. It’s important to do this so that you know exactly what type of damage you are and aren’t covered for. While the ‘act of God’ insurance defence against paying out may be something of a myth, there will always be claused and loopholes in your policy that could mean that you miss out on a claim that you need. That’s something to be aware of. It could even mean that you would be better off switching to another insurance provider at some point in the future. Be aware that a service like a fire damage insurance adjuster could help you gain the claim you need when your insurance company is refusing to pay out. 


Prepare Your Home For A Storm


You might also want to think about preparing your home for a storm and ensuring that there isn’t any issue with your home getting damaged. There are a few ways to do this. However, one of the best options will be to make sure that the protection you have in place is working effectively. For instance, you might already have a sump pump in your basement. This is typically the best line of defense against your property flooding. You need to make sure that your sump pump is working effectively. If it’s not then it’s unlikely that you will receive a payout from your insurance company in the event of a floor. You might also want to invest in a backup generator to avoid being without power for days on end. 


We hope this helps you understand some of the best ways that you will be able to prevent a home disaster on your property. With the right steps here, you will be able to guarantee that you don’t end up with massive, expensive property problems.
