Draw a picture of yourself with a thought bubble above your head. Fill the thought bubble with things you can ponder about.

  1. Wow! This is exactly what I have been looking for. Thanks for sharing! I am just curious- do you have a printable version so I can easily print out that week of devotionals to have at the ready? Thanks!

    1. Hey, glad it’s useful for you!

      We actually used to put the devotionals as a PDF for people to download, but we stopped doing it towards the end of last year for a few reasons.

      First, it was actually pretty time-consuming to make a nice PDF and upload it. If we made mistakes, which happened sometimes, it was a really big pain to change them on PDF and re-upload it. Plus we’d get lots of emails from people who downloaded the mistake and hadn’t seen the update. Since Phillip has a full-time job and I homeschool the kids, we needed to scale back a bit. And we just had baby #3 in May.

      Second, we found that some people were downloading the PDF and passing it off as their own or offering it for free on their own blogs (some even removing our logo and watermarks). While we do offer it for free on our own blog, that kind of plagiarism was very disheartening.

      Third, one reason we are able to offer it for free is because we get a bit of income from ads when people come to the blog. It costs a lot of money to maintain a blog this large to handle this many people coming to it (more than $500 per month). When we offered it as a PDF, people would only come visit the blog one time, download it, and then not come back the entire week. We do not do this to make money – in fact, we operate the blog out at a loss anyway (meaning we pay for it out of our own pockets since the ad income doesn’t cover all of the expenses). But that kind of dip in income would be more than we could afford to keep it going.

      I hope that all makes sense and doesn’t make us seem mercenary or anything. We just have learned what we can and can’t do, and in order to be able to keep going, we need to keep it this way. I hope you understand! <3
