The challenge was created by my pal, <a href=\"http://aliedwards.com\" target=\"_blank\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Ali Edwards</span></a>, and you can read more about <a href=\"http://aliedwards.com/projects/week-in-the-life\" target=\"_blank\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">her thoughts on it here</span></a>. I&#39;ve read Ali&#39;s blog for, like, ten years (hers was the first blog I ever read actually, and an early inspiration for starting my own blog!), so I&#39;ve seen her do this challenge year after year, and I&#39;ve always loved the thought of it. But for whatever reason, I never joined in myself until this year. Today I&#39;m here to show you my album and share my experience with documenting a week in my life through photographs and then an album.&#0160;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Like most people, I don&#39;t feel like my everyday life is all that interesting. For the most part my weekdays and weekends are pretty routine. I go to work at 8am. I sometimes take either a coffee or lunch break with Jeremy. I work till five-ish. We eat out a lot. And some nights we cook easy meals at home. We watch <em>The Mindy Project</em> and <em>Scandal</em> and <em>The Biggest Loser</em>. And on the weekends we do brunch and usually work a few hours in the afternoons (Jeremy loves working to break up a day, and I am always behind on my to-do list), and then go to a Mixtapes show or hang out with another couple. And to me, that pretty much sums it up! We have a happy life, but I didn&#39;t feel like I would have a lot of different things to take photos of. I was worried my album would be boring.&#0160;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Well, I was right, and I was wrong.&#0160;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">My week wasn&#39;t perfect, and it wasn&#39;t always photogenic. It was boring at times. It was a stressful week at work, not one of my best. I didn&#39;t get tons of awesome photos every single day. But what I did get, <em>I LOVE</em>. Taking the photos and making the album made me realize how many special in between moments each week is filled with.&#0160;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Looking back through it now, I am so glad I took the challenge. I am so glad I didn&#39;t quit on Tuesday. I feel like the album accurately portrays the ups and downs that my real life is made of. The week happened to fall on Halloween (yay!), and there are some super special fun photos in there of our funny costumes and my niece&#39;s Disney princess moment. But there are also photos of the little things, like a cleaning day I had and some outtakes from a work shoot that I wouldn&#39;t have normally printed.&#0160;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">All in all, I&#39;m so happy I took this challenge. It inspires me to do more. Next up, <a href=\"http://aliedwards.com/projects/december-daily\" target=\"_blank\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">December Daily</span></a>!

The challenge was created by my pal, <a href=\"http://aliedwards.com\" target=\"_blank\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Ali Edwards</span></a>, and you can read more about <a href=\"http://aliedwards.com/projects/week-in-the-life\" target=\"_blank\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">her thoughts on it here</span></a>. I&#39;ve read Ali&#39;s blog for, like, ten years (hers was the first blog I ever read actually, and an early inspiration for starting my own blog!), so I&#39;ve seen her do this challenge year after year, and I&#39;ve always loved the thought of it. But for whatever reason, I never joined in myself until this year. Today I&#39;m here to show you my album and share my experience with documenting a week in my life through photographs and then an album.&#0160;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Like most people, I don&#39;t feel like my everyday life is all that interesting. For the most part my weekdays and weekends are pretty routine. I go to work at 8am. I sometimes take either a coffee or lunch break with Jeremy. I work till five-ish. We eat out a lot. And some nights we cook easy meals at home. We watch <em>The Mindy Project</em> and <em>Scandal</em> and <em>The Biggest Loser</em>. And on the weekends we do brunch and usually work a few hours in the afternoons (Jeremy loves working to break up a day, and I am always behind on my to-do list), and then go to a Mixtapes show or hang out with another couple. And to me, that pretty much sums it up! We have a happy life, but I didn&#39;t feel like I would have a lot of different things to take photos of. I was worried my album would be boring.&#0160;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Well, I was right, and I was wrong.&#0160;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">My week wasn&#39;t perfect, and it wasn&#39;t always photogenic. It was boring at times. It was a stressful week at work, not one of my best. I didn&#39;t get tons of awesome photos every single day. But what I did get, <em>I LOVE</em>. Taking the photos and making the album made me realize how many special in between moments each week is filled with.&#0160;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Looking back through it now, I am so glad I took the challenge. I am so glad I didn&#39;t quit on Tuesday. I feel like the album accurately portrays the ups and downs that my real life is made of. The week happened to fall on Halloween (yay!), and there are some super special fun photos in there of our funny costumes and my niece&#39;s Disney princess moment. But there are also photos of the little things, like a cleaning day I had and some outtakes from a work shoot that I wouldn&#39;t have normally printed.&#0160;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">All in all, I&#39;m so happy I took this challenge. It inspires me to do more. Next up, <a href=\"http://aliedwards.com/projects/december-daily\" target=\"_blank\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">December Daily</span></a>!

This is <em>not</em> a drill, you guys. I really have found one of the best party appetizers&#0160;<em>ever</em>. I discovered this delicious little gem when I went to a birthday party at our office manager, Jacki&#39;s house a few weeks ago. Her friend Mallory had brought the most delectable looking little crostinis topped with roasted grapes and rosemary garnish. I&#39;ve certainly never had roasted grapes before, so I didn&#39;t know what to expect. But they were so good that I literally stood next to the table for the next 45 minutes and ate more than my fair share of them. I made a few small tweaks to Mallory&#39;s recipe, and I think it&#39;s a winner!</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201bb07ac6d9f970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><img alt=\"Roasted Grape + Honey Goat Cheese Crostini (click through for recipe)      \" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201bb07ac6d9f970d image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201bb07ac6d9f970d-800wi\" title=\"Roasted Grape + Honey Goat Cheese Crostini (click through for recipe)      \" /><br /></span></a>Roasted Grape + Honey Goat Cheese Crostini, makes 20 crostinis.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">3 cups washed and halved grapes</span><br /><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">2-3 sprigs of rosemary</span><br /><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">6-8 oz. of honey goat cheese (or just mix in some honey to taste with regular goat cheese if you can&#39;t find honey flavored)</span><br /><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">1 large baguette</span><br /><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">olive oil</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Begin by taking your washed and halved grapes and putting them in a bowl with a drizzle of olive oil on top.

This would be great for a holiday party appetizer, and I seriously can&#39;t wait to have people over so I can make this (although mostly for myself to eat of course). Think you&#39;ll give it a try at your next party? xo. Laura</span><br /><br /><span style=\"font-size: 8pt; background-color: #ffffff;\">Credits // Author and Photography: Laura Gummerman.

I made a few small tweaks to Mallory&#39;s recipe, and I think it&#39;s a winner!</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201bb07ac6d9f970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><img alt=\"Roasted Grape + Honey Goat Cheese Crostini (click through for recipe)      \" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201bb07ac6d9f970d image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201bb07ac6d9f970d-800wi\" title=\"Roasted Grape + Honey Goat Cheese Crostini (click through for recipe)      \" /><br /></span></a>Roasted Grape + Honey Goat Cheese Crostini, makes 20 crostinis.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">3 cups washed and halved grapes</span><br /><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">2-3 sprigs of rosemary</span><br /><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">6-8 oz. of honey goat cheese (or just mix in some honey to taste with regular goat cheese if you can&#39;t find honey flavored)</span><br /><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">1 large baguette</span><br /><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">olive oil</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Begin by taking your washed and halved grapes and putting them in a bowl with a drizzle of olive oil on top.

This would be great for a holiday party appetizer, and I seriously can&#39;t wait to have people over so I can make this (although mostly for myself to eat of course). Think you&#39;ll give it a try at your next party? xo. Laura</span><br /><br /><span style=\"font-size: 8pt; background-color: #ffffff;\">Credits // Author and Photography: Laura Gummerman.

These themes carried over in a book on marriage published by Driscoll and his wife.</p>\r\n<p>Driscoll apologized for some of these offenses, and his apologists excused him for others.</p>\r\n<p>In the past year, however, a dam burst in terms of confessions by leaders at Mars Hill that they had been complicit in enabling Driscoll to wrongfully fire elders and pastors and to harass members, even shun them, for raising questions about his leadership.&#0160;<a href=\"http://www.repentantpastor.com/\" target=\"_blank\" title=\"former pastors\">RepentantPastor.com</a>&#0160;contains statements from 18 past elders, including Leif Moi, who was co-founding pastor with Driscoll in 1996.</p>\r\n<p>Ironically, it was not these behaviors that triggered his fall, it appears, but a book -- not for what it said, but for Driscoll&#39;s&#0160;<a href=\"http://www.csmonitor.com/Books/chapter-and-verse/2014/0307/Pastor-reportedly-buys-his-way-onto-New-York-Times-bestseller-list\" target=\"_blank\" title=\"CSMonitor\">alleged use of $210,000 in ministry funds</a>&#0160;to prop up sales.

I loved the idea of mixing as many colors of Core’dinations Signature G45 cardstock with as many patterns as I could to form a background for a mixed media piece. This piece measures 8x10 and features images from G45’s “Typography” collection, along with lots of fun texture, paints and stamped images. I loved the saying “Art washes from the soul the dust of everyday life.” because I think it is so true. Life can get hard and busy and sometimes just plain unfun, but when we take time to express ourselves through art, we can...even if just for a short time...be free of all those burdens and pour our hearts onto a page or canvas.&quot;~Keri</span></p>\r\n<p dir=\"ltr\" style=\"line-height: 1.15;

That’s why I am a huge fan of the Staples ATC tags. They are smaller than cards, but can still be used as a small gift card to go with a present. I usually don’t decorate the backside of the ATC tags, but thought it might be nice to add a bit of colour to their backsides as well. Therefore, I took out some beautiful Core’dinations cardstock and inked and teared them to create a simple yet nice backside that I can write a short sentiment on.</strong>&quot;~Romy</span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino;

The poinsettia die makes the most realistic flower, I just had to share with you how it was made.

I loved the idea of mixing as many colors of Core’dinations Signature G45 cardstock with as many patterns as I could to form a background for a mixed media piece. This piece measures 8x10 and features images from G45’s “Typography” collection, along with lots of fun texture, paints and stamped images. I loved the saying “Art washes from the soul the dust of everyday life.” because I think it is so true. Life can get hard and busy and sometimes just plain unfun, but when we take time to express ourselves through art, we can...even if just for a short time...be free of all those burdens and pour our hearts onto a page or canvas.&quot;~Keri</span></p>\r\n<p dir=\"ltr\" style=\"line-height: 1.15;

That’s why I am a huge fan of the Staples ATC tags. They are smaller than cards, but can still be used as a small gift card to go with a present. I usually don’t decorate the backside of the ATC tags, but thought it might be nice to add a bit of colour to their backsides as well. Therefore, I took out some beautiful Core’dinations cardstock and inked and teared them to create a simple yet nice backside that I can write a short sentiment on.</strong>&quot;~Romy</span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino;

I'm writing this book to honor YOU and all that you've contributed to this site, all that you've given me.</p>\r\n<p>Cheers, with the fancy crystal!</p>\r\n<p><em> <a class=\"asset-img-link\" style=\"float: right;\" href=\"http://www.smithtea.com/collections/herbal-infusions/products/peppermint-leaves\" target=\"_self\"><img class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8341bf6d653ef01b8d095511f970c img-responsive\" style=\"width: 300px; margin: 0px 0px 10px 10px;\" title=\"Steven Smit Peppermint Leaves\" src=\"http://weblog.ashaland.com/.a/6a00d8341bf6d653ef01b8d095511f970c-300wi\" alt=\"Steven Smith Peppermint Leaves\" /></a></em><strong>Let's celebrate!

I wanted to get you something from Portland that I really love. I drink *a lot* of this tea.</p>\r\n<p>Trust me, you've never had peppermint tea like this.

I&#39;m actually pretty thankful that home cooked food is a part of so many great experiences I had as a child. My mom and I made either Christmas cookies or gingerbread houses every year and I really treasure these memories. It&#39;s so fun to watch her now passing these traditions on to the Grands.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: verdana, geneva;\"> <a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://www.freshfoodperspectives.com/.a/6a01676279fb3a970b01b7c70c4a55970b-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\"><img alt=\"Grammy cooking\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a01676279fb3a970b01b7c70c4a55970b img-responsive\" src=\"http://www.freshfoodperspectives.com/.a/6a01676279fb3a970b01b7c70c4a55970b-580wi\" style=\"width: 558px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"Grammy cooking\" /></a><br /></span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: verdana, geneva;\">Among the many things I also remember are always having shrimp cocktail on Christmas Eve, a delicious sweet bread on Christmas morning, and an amazing carrot cake for Jesus&#39; birthday cake.&#0160;</span></p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://www.freshfoodperspectives.com/.a/6a01676279fb3a970b01b8d095d6f7970c-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Jesus bday cake\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a01676279fb3a970b01b8d095d6f7970c img-responsive\" src=\"http://www.freshfoodperspectives.com/.a/6a01676279fb3a970b01b8d095d6f7970c-500wi\" style=\"width: 470px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"Jesus bday cake\" /></a></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: verdana, geneva;\">While our family still continues to make many of these foods, some traditions have changed. As my brother and I got older, our family started enjoying eating out for Christmas Eve dinner. In Ft. Lauderdale, one of our family&#39;s favorite restaurants for Christmas Eve dinner is <a href=\"http://www.hillstone.com/#/restaurants/houstons/\" target=\"_blank\">Houston&#39;s</a>&#0160;and they have the most amazing spinach and artichoke dip. It&#39;s a must-get appetizer for us. Now, when I think about getting all together as a family for a special holiday meal out, I immediately think of the many wonderful meals we shared at Houston&#39;s that started off with spinach and artichoke dip.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: verdana, geneva;\">Nowadays, going out to eat together at the holidays is a lot trickier because our family has grown from 4 people to 10 (with 4 of those members being 4 or younger). So when the challenge for <a href=\"www.thereciperedux.com\" target=\"_blank\">The Recipe Redux </a>this month was to share a recipe redo from a favorite holiday food memory, I knew I wanted to create a healthier spinach artichoke dip that we could all enjoy at home. (Yes mom, I volunteer to make this over the holidays.)</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: verdana, geneva;\">My goal for this redo was to keep the creaminess and flavor but reduce the overall calories, all while secretly make this full of health promoting ingredients.&#0160;This dip is creamy with rich flavor (thanks to&#0160;<a href=\"http://www.cabotcheese.coop/lowfat-plain-greek-style-yogurt\" target=\"_blank\">Cabot Greek yogurt&#0160;</a>and&#0160;<a href=\"http://www.cabotcheese.coop/alpine-cheddar\" target=\"_blank\">Alpine Cheddar</a>)&#0160;but also full of amazing super food power thanks to the protein content,&#0160;fresh spinach, avocado,&#0160;<a href=\"http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0078DP5WK/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=390957&amp;creativeASIN=B0078DP5WK&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;tag=fresfoodpers-20&amp;linkId=U7NUDBVGNPUWBWCT\">marinated artichoke hearts</a>,&#0160;fresh garlic and&#0160;<a href=\"http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000NO943C?ie=UTF8&amp;creativeASIN=B000NO943C&amp;linkCode=xm2&amp;tag=fresfoodpers-20\" target=\"_blank\">smoked paprika</a>.</span></p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p><a data-pin-color=\"red\" data-pin-config=\"above\" data-pin-do=\"buttonPin\" data-pin-height=\"28\" href=\"//www.pinterest.com/pin/create/button/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.freshfoodperspectives.com%2Fmy-blog%2F2014%2F11%2Flight-spinach-artichoke-dip.html&amp;media=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.freshfoodperspectives.com%2F.a%2F6a01676279fb3a970b01bb07b10748970d&amp;description=This%20creamy%20and%20delicious%20Healthy%20Spinach%20%26%20Artichoke%20Dip%20is%20perfect%20for%20any%20%20gathering%20%20thanks%20to%20lightening%20up%20the%20calories%2C%20adding%20protein%2C%20and%20adding%20super%20foods.%20No%20one%20will%20know%20this%20is%20a%20%23healthy%20dip.%20Please%20repin%2C%20especially%20those%20looking%20for%20gluten%20free%20recipes.%20%23Recipe%20via%20%40JBraddockRD%20at%20http%3A%2F%2Fwww.freshfoodperspectives.com%2Fmy-blog%2F2014%2F11%2Flight-spinach-artichoke-dip.html%20%23glutenfree%20%23cleaneating%20%23delicious%20%23appetizer%20%23holidaymenu%20%23christmas%20%23dips%20%23spinach%20%23artichokes%20%23greekyogurt%20%23paprika%20%20\"><img alt=\"\" src=\"//assets.pinterest.com/images/pidgets/pinit_fg_en_rect_red_28.png\" /></a></p>\r\n<script defer=\"defer\" src=\"//assets.pinterest.com/js/pinit.js\" type=\"text/javascript\"></script>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://www.freshfoodperspectives.com/.a/6a01676279fb3a970b01bb07b10748970d-popup\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Spinach Artichoke Dip FFP\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a01676279fb3a970b01bb07b10748970d img-responsive\" src=\"http://www.freshfoodperspectives.com/.a/6a01676279fb3a970b01bb07b10748970d-500wi\" style=\"width: 470px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"Spinach Artichoke Dip FFP\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: verdana, geneva;\">So whip up this dip (even make it ahead and freeze it) for the holidays but also feel great about enjoying it any time of the year!

I&#39;m actually pretty thankful that home cooked food is a part of so many great experiences I had as a child. My mom and I made either Christmas cookies or gingerbread houses every year and I really treasure these memories. It&#39;s so fun to watch her now passing these traditions on to the Grands.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: verdana, geneva;\"> <a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://www.freshfoodperspectives.com/.a/6a01676279fb3a970b01b7c70c4a55970b-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\"><img alt=\"Grammy cooking\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a01676279fb3a970b01b7c70c4a55970b img-responsive\" src=\"http://www.freshfoodperspectives.com/.a/6a01676279fb3a970b01b7c70c4a55970b-580wi\" style=\"width: 558px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"Grammy cooking\" /></a><br /></span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: verdana, geneva;\">Among the many things I also remember are always having shrimp cocktail on Christmas Eve, a delicious sweet bread on Christmas morning, and an amazing carrot cake for Jesus&#39; birthday cake.&#0160;</span></p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://www.freshfoodperspectives.com/.a/6a01676279fb3a970b01b8d095d6f7970c-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Jesus bday cake\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a01676279fb3a970b01b8d095d6f7970c img-responsive\" src=\"http://www.freshfoodperspectives.com/.a/6a01676279fb3a970b01b8d095d6f7970c-500wi\" style=\"width: 470px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"Jesus bday cake\" /></a></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: verdana, geneva;\">While our family still continues to make many of these foods, some traditions have changed. As my brother and I got older, our family started enjoying eating out for Christmas Eve dinner. In Ft. Lauderdale, one of our family&#39;s favorite restaurants for Christmas Eve dinner is <a href=\"http://www.hillstone.com/#/restaurants/houstons/\" target=\"_blank\">Houston&#39;s</a>&#0160;and they have the most amazing spinach and artichoke dip. It&#39;s a must-get appetizer for us. Now, when I think about getting all together as a family for a special holiday meal out, I immediately think of the many wonderful meals we shared at Houston&#39;s that started off with spinach and artichoke dip.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: verdana, geneva;\">Nowadays, going out to eat together at the holidays is a lot trickier because our family has grown from 4 people to 10 (with 4 of those members being 4 or younger). So when the challenge for <a href=\"www.thereciperedux.com\" target=\"_blank\">The Recipe Redux </a>this month was to share a recipe redo from a favorite holiday food memory, I knew I wanted to create a healthier spinach artichoke dip that we could all enjoy at home. (Yes mom, I volunteer to make this over the holidays.)</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: verdana, geneva;\">My goal for this redo was to keep the creaminess and flavor but reduce the overall calories, all while secretly make this full of health promoting ingredients.&#0160;This dip is creamy with rich flavor (thanks to&#0160;<a href=\"http://www.cabotcheese.coop/lowfat-plain-greek-style-yogurt\" target=\"_blank\">Cabot Greek yogurt&#0160;</a>and&#0160;<a href=\"http://www.cabotcheese.coop/alpine-cheddar\" target=\"_blank\">Alpine Cheddar</a>)&#0160;but also full of amazing super food power thanks to the protein content,&#0160;fresh spinach, avocado,&#0160;<a href=\"http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0078DP5WK/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=390957&amp;creativeASIN=B0078DP5WK&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;tag=fresfoodpers-20&amp;linkId=U7NUDBVGNPUWBWCT\">marinated artichoke hearts</a>,&#0160;fresh garlic and&#0160;<a href=\"http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000NO943C?ie=UTF8&amp;creativeASIN=B000NO943C&amp;linkCode=xm2&amp;tag=fresfoodpers-20\" target=\"_blank\">smoked paprika</a>.</span></p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p><a data-pin-color=\"red\" data-pin-config=\"above\" data-pin-do=\"buttonPin\" data-pin-height=\"28\" href=\"//www.pinterest.com/pin/create/button/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.freshfoodperspectives.com%2Fmy-blog%2F2014%2F11%2Flight-spinach-artichoke-dip.html&amp;media=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.freshfoodperspectives.com%2F.a%2F6a01676279fb3a970b01bb07b10748970d&amp;description=This%20creamy%20and%20delicious%20Healthy%20Spinach%20%26%20Artichoke%20Dip%20is%20perfect%20for%20any%20%20gathering%20%20thanks%20to%20lightening%20up%20the%20calories%2C%20adding%20protein%2C%20and%20adding%20super%20foods.%20No%20one%20will%20know%20this%20is%20a%20%23healthy%20dip.%20Please%20repin%2C%20especially%20those%20looking%20for%20gluten%20free%20recipes.%20%23Recipe%20via%20%40JBraddockRD%20at%20http%3A%2F%2Fwww.freshfoodperspectives.com%2Fmy-blog%2F2014%2F11%2Flight-spinach-artichoke-dip.html%20%23glutenfree%20%23cleaneating%20%23delicious%20%23appetizer%20%23holidaymenu%20%23christmas%20%23dips%20%23spinach%20%23artichokes%20%23greekyogurt%20%23paprika%20%20\"><img alt=\"\" src=\"//assets.pinterest.com/images/pidgets/pinit_fg_en_rect_red_28.png\" /></a></p>\r\n<script defer=\"defer\" src=\"//assets.pinterest.com/js/pinit.js\" type=\"text/javascript\"></script>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://www.freshfoodperspectives.com/.a/6a01676279fb3a970b01bb07b10748970d-popup\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Spinach Artichoke Dip FFP\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a01676279fb3a970b01bb07b10748970d img-responsive\" src=\"http://www.freshfoodperspectives.com/.a/6a01676279fb3a970b01bb07b10748970d-500wi\" style=\"width: 470px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"Spinach Artichoke Dip FFP\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: verdana, geneva;\">So whip up this dip (even make it ahead and freeze it) for the holidays but also feel great about enjoying it any time of the year!

It would seem very likely that Ethel is following through on her threat to Elsa that she would kill Elsa “with (her) own hands” if Elsa were to bring (more) harm to the family of Freaks. Obviously, Elsa’s character is not going to die&#0160;<em>now,&#0160;</em>if &#0160;for no further reasons than she is featured in descriptions of episodes to come.</p>\r\n<p>So, what happens? My guess is that the slimey con man, Stanley (<strong>Denis O’Hare</strong>), assists Elsa in putting Ethel down. That would explain who is in the box (above) and why too, Jimmy (<strong>Evan Peters</strong>) is so devastated in the same scene (click, to enlarge to full size).</p>\r\n<p>It possibly also explains these shots (below) because Elsa would not leave Ethel &#0160;to be found in her pretty, pink tent.</p>\r\n<p><a href=\"http://popcultureplayground.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/28-tile1.jpg\" rel=\"nofollow\"><img alt=\"28 tile1 600x328 (SPOILERS) American Horror Story: Freak Show Next On: Blood Bath @AHS FreakShow #FreakShow\" height=\"328\" src=\"http://popcultureplayground.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/28-tile1-600x328.jpg\" style=\"display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"(SPOILERS) American Horror Story: Freak Show Next On: Blood Bath @AHS FreakShow #FreakShow\" width=\"600\" /></a></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><strong>American Horror Story: Freak Show – Episode 8 ‘Blood Bath’ Shown: Emma Roberts and Evan Peters (CR:FX)</strong></p>\r\n<p>Then there is poor, wee Ma Petite (<strong>Jyoti Amge</strong>). Del (<strong>Michael Chiklis</strong>) sneaked into her tent under cover of darkness, under the pretense of gifting her with a new frock. She excitedly tried it on and thanked him with a hug and<em>&#0160;he</em>&#0160;promptly broke her neck. Del was acting under duress–Stanley’s blackmailing Del to get a “dead Freak” for Stanley to sell for a hefty profit. Stanley’s way of explaining Ma Petite’s demise was that “an animal dragged her off.” Below, Stanley shows some of the Freaks all that seems left of Ma Petite–one of her bloody braids.</p>\r\n<p><a href=\"http://popcultureplayground.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/24-horz.jpg\" rel=\"nofollow\"><img alt=\"24 horz 600x166 (SPOILERS) American Horror Story: Freak Show Next On: Blood Bath @AHS FreakShow #FreakShow\" height=\"166\" src=\"http://popcultureplayground.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/24-horz-600x166.jpg\" style=\"display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"(SPOILERS) American Horror Story: Freak Show Next On: Blood Bath @AHS FreakShow #FreakShow\" width=\"600\" /></a></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><strong>American Horror Story: Freak Show – Episode 8 ‘Blood Bath’ (CR:FX)</strong></p>\r\n<p><iframe allowfullscreen=\"allowfullscreen\" frameborder=\"0\" height=\"236\" src=\"http://www.youtube.com/embed/YWDF7DxMTFg\" width=\"420\"></iframe></p>\r\n<p><strong>American Horror Story: Freak Show – Episode 8 ‘Blood Bath’ Synopsis</strong><br /><em>Recent disappearances around camp raise Ethel’s suspicion of Elsa.

It would seem very likely that Ethel is following through on her threat to Elsa that she would kill Elsa “with (her) own hands” if Elsa were to bring (more) harm to the family of Freaks. Obviously, Elsa’s character is not going to die&#0160;<em>now,&#0160;</em>if &#0160;for no further reasons than she is featured in descriptions of episodes to come.</p>\r\n<p>So, what happens? My guess is that the slimey con man, Stanley (<strong>Denis O’Hare</strong>), assists Elsa in putting Ethel down. That would explain who is in the box (above) and why too, Jimmy (<strong>Evan Peters</strong>) is so devastated in the same scene (click, to enlarge to full size).</p>\r\n<p>It possibly also explains these shots (below) because Elsa would not leave Ethel &#0160;to be found in her pretty, pink tent.</p>\r\n<p><a href=\"http://popcultureplayground.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/28-tile1.jpg\" rel=\"nofollow\"><img alt=\"28 tile1 600x328 (SPOILERS) American Horror Story: Freak Show Next On: Blood Bath @AHS FreakShow #FreakShow\" height=\"328\" src=\"http://popcultureplayground.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/28-tile1-600x328.jpg\" style=\"display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"(SPOILERS) American Horror Story: Freak Show Next On: Blood Bath @AHS FreakShow #FreakShow\" width=\"600\" /></a></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><strong>American Horror Story: Freak Show – Episode 8 ‘Blood Bath’ Shown: Emma Roberts and Evan Peters (CR:FX)</strong></p>\r\n<p>Then there is poor, wee Ma Petite (<strong>Jyoti Amge</strong>). Del (<strong>Michael Chiklis</strong>) sneaked into her tent under cover of darkness, under the pretense of gifting her with a new frock. She excitedly tried it on and thanked him with a hug and<em>&#0160;he</em>&#0160;promptly broke her neck. Del was acting under duress–Stanley’s blackmailing Del to get a “dead Freak” for Stanley to sell for a hefty profit. Stanley’s way of explaining Ma Petite’s demise was that “an animal dragged her off.” Below, Stanley shows some of the Freaks all that seems left of Ma Petite–one of her bloody braids.</p>\r\n<p><a href=\"http://popcultureplayground.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/24-horz.jpg\" rel=\"nofollow\"><img alt=\"24 horz 600x166 (SPOILERS) American Horror Story: Freak Show Next On: Blood Bath @AHS FreakShow #FreakShow\" height=\"166\" src=\"http://popcultureplayground.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/24-horz-600x166.jpg\" style=\"display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"(SPOILERS) American Horror Story: Freak Show Next On: Blood Bath @AHS FreakShow #FreakShow\" width=\"600\" /></a></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><strong>American Horror Story: Freak Show – Episode 8 ‘Blood Bath’ (CR:FX)</strong></p>\r\n<p><iframe allowfullscreen=\"allowfullscreen\" frameborder=\"0\" height=\"236\" src=\"http://www.youtube.com/embed/YWDF7DxMTFg\" width=\"420\"></iframe></p>\r\n<p><strong>American Horror Story: Freak Show – Episode 8 ‘Blood Bath’ Synopsis</strong><br /><em>Recent disappearances around camp raise Ethel’s suspicion of Elsa.

What started out as a quest to make a paper bonnet quickly grew to include a hat box, slippers and shoe box. The slippers are a variation of a pattern by <a href=\"http://www.chocolatebaroque.com/FREE-Paper-Shoe-Template_p_2872.html\" style=\"text-decoration: none;\">Glenda Waterworth</a>. The boxes are simple square and round boxes I crafted to size (which is actually pretty darned small). As a jumping off point I chose ‘Robin’s Egg’ from Cordinations Signature Series Graphic 45 Lights and coordinated with several papers from Botanical Tea.</strong>&quot; ~Nichola</span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino;

The Graphic 45 signature series colours are wonderful to use and I love how they are a perfect match with Graphic 45 paper collections. I have demonstrated this through the use of 6 different collections and the cardstock colours I think match best. I also asked my children what their favorite colours were and made a tag with a photo of each of them.</span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: left;\"><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino;

href=\"http://www.pinkcloudscrappers.blogspot.com/\" target=\"_blank\">Lori</a> tells you the inspiration for this beautiful Baby 2 Bride card below.</span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: left;\"><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">&quot;My neighbors are expecting their first little girl and I knew I wanted to make them a card to congratulate their family. I couldn’t think of a more perfect collection to use “Baby to Bride” to create for them a heartfelt wish. I can’t wait to hold their new little bundle of joy, soon enough. <br /><br />I like to layer my projects and a great way to add that extra layering detail is with Core’dinations paper. The colors match Graphic 45 collections making it super easy to blend together. I used an embossing folder on the Core’dinations paper and then sanded to really make the embossed portion pop. It takes a plain sheet of paper and turns it’s into a real WOW. The chubby little babies were then fussy cut and layered over the paper along with some various embellishments. I also finished off the interior of my cards as I always want the inside to be pretty like the outside.&quot; ~Lori</span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\"> <a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://g45papers.typepad.com/.a/6a011570479cdc970b01b7c706b775970b-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Graphic 45 Coredinations Card Lori Williams\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a011570479cdc970b01b7c706b775970b img-responsive\" src=\"http://g45papers.typepad.com/.a/6a011570479cdc970b01b7c706b775970b-600wi\" style=\"width: 600px;\" title=\"Graphic 45 Coredinations Card Lori Williams\" /></a></span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\"><br /> <a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://g45papers.typepad.com/.a/6a011570479cdc970b01b7c706b77e970b-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Graphic 45 Coredinations Card Lori Williams\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a011570479cdc970b01b7c706b77e970b img-responsive\" src=\"http://g45papers.typepad.com/.a/6a011570479cdc970b01b7c706b77e970b-600wi\" style=\"width: 600px;\" title=\"Graphic 45 Coredinations Card Lori Williams\" /></a></span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\"><br /> <a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://g45papers.typepad.com/.a/6a011570479cdc970b01b7c706b794970b-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Graphic 45 Coredinations Card Lori Williams\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a011570479cdc970b01b7c706b794970b img-responsive\" src=\"http://g45papers.typepad.com/.a/6a011570479cdc970b01b7c706b794970b-600wi\" style=\"width: 600px;\" title=\"Graphic 45 Coredinations Card Lori Williams\" /></a></span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\"><strong>Supply List</strong> <br /><br /><a href=\"http://www.bluemoonscrapbooking.com/SPD/41-01001---2837066646508633855.jsp\" target=\"_blank\">&#0160;Baby to Bride* </a><br /><a href=\"http://www.bluemoonscrapbooking.com/SPD/41-01001---2837066646508633855.jsp\" target=\"_blank\">• Sentimental Baby*</a><br /><a href=\"http://www.bluemoonscrapbooking.com/SPD/41-01001---2837066646508633855.jsp\" target=\"_blank\">• From This Moment*</a><br /><a href=\"http://www.bluemoonscrapbooking.com/SPD/41-01001---2837066646508633855.jsp\" target=\"_blank\">• Stickers*</a><br /><a href=\"http://www.bluemoonscrapbooking.com/SPD/41-01001---2837066646508633855.jsp\" target=\"_blank\">• Chipboard*</a><br />*All Available in the Deluxe Collector&#39;s Edition<br /><a href=\"http://www.coredinations.com/index.php/products/signature-series/graphic-45-lights/\" target=\"_blank\">Sweet Apricot Core’dinations</a><br />Core’dinations Sanding Block<br />Other Products Used: <br />Foam Tape<br />Sizzix A2 Embossing Folder/ Large Swirls <br />Ribbon<br />Distress Ink<br />Pearl Button<br />Sewing Maciine<br />Spellbinders Die<br /></span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: left;\"><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">Hop over the <a href=\"http://www.coredinations.com/index.php/category/scrapbook-blog/\" target=\"_blank\">Core&#39;dinations blog</a> for more fun!

What started out as a quest to make a paper bonnet quickly grew to include a hat box, slippers and shoe box. The slippers are a variation of a pattern by <a href=\"http://www.chocolatebaroque.com/FREE-Paper-Shoe-Template_p_2872.html\" style=\"text-decoration: none;\">Glenda Waterworth</a>. The boxes are simple square and round boxes I crafted to size (which is actually pretty darned small).

style=\"text-align: left;\"><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">Wouldn&#39;t you love to receive this beautiful card? <a href=\"http://www.pinkcloudscrappers.blogspot.com/\" target=\"_blank\">Lori</a> tells you the inspiration for this beautiful Baby 2 Bride card below.</span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: left;\"><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">&quot;My neighbors are expecting their first little girl and I knew I wanted to make them a card to congratulate their family. I couldn’t think of a more perfect collection to use “Baby to Bride” to create for them a heartfelt wish. I can’t wait to hold their new little bundle of joy, soon enough. <br /><br />I like to layer my projects and a great way to add that extra layering detail is with Core’dinations paper. The colors match Graphic 45 collections making it super easy to blend together. I used an embossing folder on the Core’dinations paper and then sanded to really make the embossed portion pop. It takes a plain sheet of paper and turns it’s into a real WOW. The chubby little babies were then fussy cut and layered over the paper along with some various embellishments. I also finished off the interior of my cards as I always want the inside to be pretty like the outside.&quot; ~Lori</span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\"> <a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://g45papers.typepad.com/.a/6a011570479cdc970b01b7c706b775970b-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Graphic 45 Coredinations Card Lori Williams\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a011570479cdc970b01b7c706b775970b img-responsive\" src=\"http://g45papers.typepad.com/.a/6a011570479cdc970b01b7c706b775970b-600wi\" style=\"width: 600px;\" title=\"Graphic 45 Coredinations Card Lori Williams\" /></a></span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\"><br /> <a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://g45papers.typepad.com/.a/6a011570479cdc970b01b7c706b77e970b-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Graphic 45 Coredinations Card Lori Williams\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a011570479cdc970b01b7c706b77e970b img-responsive\" src=\"http://g45papers.typepad.com/.a/6a011570479cdc970b01b7c706b77e970b-600wi\" style=\"width: 600px;\" title=\"Graphic 45 Coredinations Card Lori Williams\" /></a></span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\"><br /> <a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://g45papers.typepad.com/.a/6a011570479cdc970b01b7c706b794970b-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Graphic 45 Coredinations Card Lori Williams\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a011570479cdc970b01b7c706b794970b img-responsive\" src=\"http://g45papers.typepad.com/.a/6a011570479cdc970b01b7c706b794970b-600wi\" style=\"width: 600px;\" title=\"Graphic 45 Coredinations Card Lori Williams\" /></a></span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\"><strong>Supply List</strong> <br /><br /><a href=\"http://www.bluemoonscrapbooking.com/SPD/41-01001---2837066646508633855.jsp\" target=\"_blank\">&#0160;Baby to Bride* </a><br /><a href=\"http://www.bluemoonscrapbooking.com/SPD/41-01001---2837066646508633855.jsp\" target=\"_blank\">• Sentimental Baby*</a><br /><a href=\"http://www.bluemoonscrapbooking.com/SPD/41-01001---2837066646508633855.jsp\" target=\"_blank\">• From This Moment*</a><br /><a href=\"http://www.bluemoonscrapbooking.com/SPD/41-01001---2837066646508633855.jsp\" target=\"_blank\">• Stickers*</a><br /><a href=\"http://www.bluemoonscrapbooking.com/SPD/41-01001---2837066646508633855.jsp\" target=\"_blank\">• Chipboard*</a><br />*All Available in the Deluxe Collector&#39;s Edition<br /><a href=\"http://www.coredinations.com/index.php/products/signature-series/graphic-45-lights/\" target=\"_blank\">Sweet Apricot Core’dinations</a><br />Core’dinations Sanding Block<br />Other Products Used: <br />Foam Tape<br />Sizzix A2 Embossing Folder/ Large Swirls <br />Ribbon<br />Distress Ink<br />Pearl Button<br />Sewing Maciine<br />Spellbinders Die<br /></span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: left;\"><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">Hop over the <a href=\"http://www.coredinations.com/index.php/category/scrapbook-blog/\" target=\"_blank\">Core&#39;dinations blog</a> for more fun!

I’m excited to tell you the rest of this story because I want you to learn this valuable lesson and begin to walk in more breakthroughs like I am, praise God!</p>\r\n<p>Now the conclusion of <strong>Dubious Doubt</strong>…</p>\r\n<p>As a result of God lifting this shroud and showing me the full scope of what doubt does to our faith, I have been praying for Abba to remove this doubt in my mind and heart, I have chosen to believe all the things God has told me and I have begun reclaiming what the enemy has taken away from me. I believe that was lost will be restored, just as God’s Word says:</p>\r\n<blockquote>And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself <strong>restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast</strong>. — 1 Peter 5:10</blockquote>\r\n<p>My friends, I have been praying this truth for months and declaring it will be done. And that is exactly what is happening as I have begun to refuse doubt and choose belief. An astonishing shift and breakthrough has come as a result.</p>\r\n<p>On Tuesday I worked in the Healing Rooms in our area. Nothing was going to keep me from going—the enemy often tries to prevent me from going. Knowing that I had been praying for God to clear the way and prevent any hinderances. We are in the middle of a repipe in our house and issues have cropped up, keeping me at the house to monitor the work. And it was looking like I would have to be at the house again on this day.</p>\r\n<p>But God answered my prayer in my sweet hubby, who offered to work from home so I could go. My pre believer husband stayed home so I could work in the healing rooms. How cool is that? God makes me laugh a lot at how He does stuff.</p>\r\n<p>Now, I had been asking God for more for our healing room’s team and for those coming for healing. I stepped into belief as I never have before in asking God for more of His presence and healing power to be present and released in our healing rooms. If you look at the accounts of Jesus’ healings, it always says everyone was healed. Not some—<em>everyone</em>. I wanted that for our team and especially for all who were coming for healing.</p>\r\n<p>As my teammate and I prayed for our first person (we start out knowing only if the person is male or female), God shared His heart with me about this person, much to do with His pleasure over how she carried His holiness, His plans for her (divine destiny) and a promise to do what she asked.</p>\r\n<p>Then I heard “knees.” Seemed a little off track, but I wrote it down anyway. Then we brought her into the room to pray, she shared a list of health issues and finished with the one that bothered her the most.</p>\r\n<p>Her knee.</p>\r\n<p>We shared the precious words God had given us for her and then began to pray. As she sat there, I placed my hands on her knee, believing that Jesus would do what He said. I believed it, told Jesus since He said it, it would happen. He told me “knees,” right?</p>\r\n<p>At the finish of this prayer, I asked her if she felt any difference. She again described what was wrong. I was not about to give up! I had chosen to believe what God told me was true, and I wasn’t about to back down now.</p>\r\n<p>I told her to stand up. With my hands on her knee we prayed again, believing that Jesus would do what He said. But this time, I prayed for Jesus to remove all doubt. I don’t know why, but I have learned that the breakthroughs we receive become the power behind our prayers and are often the very thing God winds up calling us to pray for another person.</p>\r\n<p>So I prayed in the Spirit and in faith. Jesus’ healing came down wave after wave so strong that I could barely breathe! We finished praying, then asked how her knew felt. This time she smiled, said it was much better, and not only that, God had given her a picture of the bone being restored.</p>\r\n<p>Breakthrough! We continued to pray for each one of her issues and a couple more she boldly asked for healing for, including arthritis in her wrist. She moved her wrist more freely right away! Each step emboldened her to ask for more!</p>\r\n<p>God gave her a special image for each part He was healing, showing her what He was doing. What’s so amazing is this was the ultimate purpose of God’s for her, because her deepest heart ache was that she felt she hadn’t heard God in a long time. Yet image after image was coming to her!</p>\r\n<p>Doubt had been removed! Her faith was reaffirmed and she was encouraged!</p>\r\n<p>My friends, this dear woman wasn’t the only woman who’s faith was emboldened. I saw first hand what happens when doubt is removed. Miracles happen. God showed me this clearly not only in this woman but in me.</p>\r\n<p>I believed God would do what He said. And He did.</p>\r\n<blockquote>“Have faith in God,” Jesus answered. “Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.” — Mark 11:22-24</blockquote>\r\n<p>This is not a name-it-and-claim-it style of belief, or prosperity religion, or whatever you call it. I’m talking about God’s truth. This is about believing His Word and trusting Him to do what He says. All of it. What He has shown you in His Word, He will do. What He has spoken to your heart, He will do. Our God is faithful and He cannot lie.</p>\r\n<p>The very next morning as I sat in my quiet time, I read this quote in my devotional book (The Listening Heart by Judy Morrow):</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\"><em>You have trust Him in few things, and He has not failed you. Trust Him now for everything, and see if He does not do for you exceedingly abundantly above all that you could ever have asked or thought, not according to your power or capacity, but according to His own mighty power, that will work in you all the good pleasure of His most blessed will.</em> — Hannah Whitall Smith (1832-1911)</p>\r\n<p>I knew right away God was saying, “See? See what happens when you refuse doubt and believe Me?”</p>\r\n<p>My friends, I want to encourage you to begin a rampage on doubt, just as I am. Let’s capture every thought of doubt and bring it before the enlightened truth of God’s Word. Does it still stand? I bet you it won’t. The Holy Spirit will help us do this—I know He will.</p>\r\n<p>Our God doesn’t want us to be doubters. He wants us to be His believers!</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://www.spirituallyunequalmarriage.com/.a/6a00d83451ee9f69e201b8d0952732970c-pi\" style=\"float: left;\"><img alt=\"SignatureGraphic2\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d83451ee9f69e201b8d0952732970c img-responsive\" src=\"http://www.spirituallyunequalmarriage.com/.a/6a00d83451ee9f69e201b8d0952732970c-150wi\" style=\"width: 150px; margin: 0px 5px 5px 0px;\" title=\"SignatureGraphic2\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;<br /><br /></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-size: 8pt;\"><em>Copyright:&#0160;<a href=\"http://www.123rf.com/profile_alphaspirit\">alphaspirit / 123RF Stock Photo</a></em>&#0160;</span></p>\r\n<fieldset class=\"zemanta-related\"><legend class=\"zemanta-related-title\">Related articles</legend>\r\n<div class=\"zemanta-article-ul zemanta-article-ul-image\" style=\"margin: 0; padding: 0; overflow: hidden;\">\r\n<div class=\"zemanta-article-ul-li-image zemanta-article-ul-li\" style=\"padding: 0; background: none; list-style: none; display: block; float: left; vertical-align: top; text-align: left; width: 84px; font-size: 11px; margin: 2px 10px 10px 2px;\"><a href=\"http://www.spirituallyunequalmarriage.com/my_weblog/2014/11/the-world-needs-an-encounter-you-give-it-to-them.html\" style=\"box-shadow: 0px 0px 4px #999; padding: 2px; display: block; border-radius: 2px; text-decoration: none;\" target=\"_blank\"><img alt=\"\" src=\"http://i.zemanta.com/310482845_80_80.jpg\" style=\"padding: 0; margin: 0; border: 0; display: block; width: 80px; max-width: 100%;\" /></a><a href=\"http://www.spirituallyunequalmarriage.com/my_weblog/2014/11/the-world-needs-an-encounter-you-give-it-to-them.html\" style=\"display: block; overflow: hidden; text-decoration: none; line-height: 12pt; height: 80px; padding: 5px 2px 0 2px;\" target=\"_blank\">The World Needs An Encounter - You Give it To Them!</a></div>\r\n<div class=\"zemanta-article-ul-li-image zemanta-article-ul-li\" style=\"padding: 0; background: none; list-style: none; display: block; float: left; vertical-align: top; text-align: left; width: 84px; font-size: 11px; margin: 2px 10px 10px 2px;\"><a href=\"http://www.spirituallyunequalmarriage.com/my_weblog/2014/11/our-breakthrough-happened-hes-a-believer.html\" style=\"box-shadow: 0px 0px 4px #999; padding: 2px; display: block; border-radius: 2px; text-decoration: none;\" target=\"_blank\"><img alt=\"\" src=\"http://i.zemanta.com/307670413_80_80.jpg\" style=\"padding: 0; margin: 0; border: 0; display: block; width: 80px; max-width: 100%;\" /></a><a href=\"http://www.spirituallyunequalmarriage.com/my_weblog/2014/11/our-breakthrough-happened-hes-a-believer.html\" style=\"display: block; overflow: hidden; text-decoration: none; line-height: 12pt; height: 80px; padding: 5px 2px 0 2px;\" target=\"_blank\">Our Breakthrough Happened!

See what happens when you refuse doubt and believe Me?”</p>\r\n<p>My friends, I want to encourage you to begin a rampage on doubt, just as I am. Let’s capture every thought of doubt and bring it before the enlightened truth of God’s Word. Does it still stand? I bet you it won’t. The Holy Spirit will help us do this—I know He will.</p>\r\n<p>Our God doesn’t want us to be doubters. He wants us to be His believers!</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://www.spirituallyunequalmarriage.com/.a/6a00d83451ee9f69e201b8d0952732970c-pi\" style=\"float: left;\"><img alt=\"SignatureGraphic2\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d83451ee9f69e201b8d0952732970c img-responsive\" src=\"http://www.spirituallyunequalmarriage.com/.a/6a00d83451ee9f69e201b8d0952732970c-150wi\" style=\"width: 150px; margin: 0px 5px 5px 0px;\" title=\"SignatureGraphic2\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;<br /><br /></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-size: 8pt;\"><em>Copyright:&#0160;<a href=\"http://www.123rf.com/profile_alphaspirit\">alphaspirit / 123RF Stock Photo</a></em>&#0160;</span></p>\r\n<fieldset class=\"zemanta-related\"><legend class=\"zemanta-related-title\">Related articles</legend>\r\n<div class=\"zemanta-article-ul zemanta-article-ul-image\" style=\"margin: 0; padding: 0; overflow: hidden;\">\r\n<div class=\"zemanta-article-ul-li-image zemanta-article-ul-li\" style=\"padding: 0; background: none; list-style: none; display: block; float: left; vertical-align: top; text-align: left; width: 84px; font-size: 11px; margin: 2px 10px 10px 2px;\"><a href=\"http://www.spirituallyunequalmarriage.com/my_weblog/2014/11/the-world-needs-an-encounter-you-give-it-to-them.html\" style=\"box-shadow: 0px 0px 4px #999; padding: 2px; display: block; border-radius: 2px; text-decoration: none;\" target=\"_blank\"><img alt=\"\" src=\"http://i.zemanta.com/310482845_80_80.jpg\" style=\"padding: 0; margin: 0; border: 0; display: block; width: 80px; max-width: 100%;\" /></a><a href=\"http://www.spirituallyunequalmarriage.com/my_weblog/2014/11/the-world-needs-an-encounter-you-give-it-to-them.html\" style=\"display: block; overflow: hidden; text-decoration: none; line-height: 12pt; height: 80px; padding: 5px 2px 0 2px;\" target=\"_blank\">The World Needs An Encounter - You Give it To Them!</a></div>\r\n<div class=\"zemanta-article-ul-li-image zemanta-article-ul-li\" style=\"padding: 0; background: none; list-style: none; display: block; float: left; vertical-align: top; text-align: left; width: 84px; font-size: 11px; margin: 2px 10px 10px 2px;\"><a href=\"http://www.spirituallyunequalmarriage.com/my_weblog/2014/11/our-breakthrough-happened-hes-a-believer.html\" style=\"box-shadow: 0px 0px 4px #999; padding: 2px; display: block; border-radius: 2px; text-decoration: none;\" target=\"_blank\"><img alt=\"\" src=\"http://i.zemanta.com/307670413_80_80.jpg\" style=\"padding: 0; margin: 0; border: 0; display: block; width: 80px; max-width: 100%;\" /></a><a href=\"http://www.spirituallyunequalmarriage.com/my_weblog/2014/11/our-breakthrough-happened-hes-a-believer.html\" style=\"display: block; overflow: hidden; text-decoration: none; line-height: 12pt; height: 80px; padding: 5px 2px 0 2px;\" target=\"_blank\">Our Breakthrough Happened!

Gods’s been showing me some very sobering truths about these three and how the enemy uses them very subtly to kill, steal and destroy our faith. I’ve been a victim to these three—perhaps you have been too. So let’s take our time and explore these three deadly Ds so that we can learn to recognize them in our life, learn to defeat them, and even learn to discern the enemy’s attempts to shoot these arrows at us so we can raise our shields of faith in defense (Ephesians 6:16) and deflect him like the fly that he is. Let’s begin where it starts…</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\"><strong>Dubious Doubt</strong> </span></p>\r\n<p>Doubt is subtle and makes its entry slow and stealthily. This is the birth of sin. Lets go back to Genesis 3 a moment and take a look at the first entry of doubt into mankind’s existence.</p>\r\n<p>The serpent was the shrewdest of all the wild animals the Lord God had made. One day he asked the woman, “Did God really say you must not eat the fruit from any of the trees in the garden?”</p>\r\n<blockquote>“Of course we may eat fruit from the trees in the garden,” the woman replied. “It’s only the fruit from the tree in the middle of the garden that we are not allowed to eat. God said, ‘You must not eat it or even touch it; if you do, you will die.’”\r\n<p>“You won’t die!” the serpent replied to the woman. “God knows that your eyes will be opened as soon as you eat it, and you will be like God, knowing both good and evil.” — Genesis 3:1-5</p>\r\n</blockquote>\r\n<p>The enemy enters shrewdly and begins his dialogue with a question—“Did God really say…?” That is the seed of doubt he plants with the intent of making his target question and doubt God and His truth. God told Adam and Eve clearly the truth about the tree of knowledge. The enemy cast doubt upon this truth, but even more subtly, the enemy made Eve doubt whether she could trust God. This is the subtext here, my friends. Read these and tell me if you relate to any of them:</p>\r\n<ul>\r\n<li>God is withholding something (His goodness) from me.</li>\r\n<li>Therefore, God doesn’t really love me.</li>\r\n<li>So, I must not be good enough.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<p>As Eve stood there, I can only imagine how these played out in seconds in her mind. That’s all it takes for doubt to implant and sprout.</p>\r\n<ul>\r\n<li>She now perceived God’s protection as keeping her from something better.</li>\r\n<li>She now perceived God’s stipulation as Him not loving her completely and she has somehow been rejected.</li>\r\n<li>She now perceived a lack within herself that would only be solved by taking matters into her own hands and doing what she thought best. She doubts God.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<p>My friends, the enemy’s tactics have not changed since the beginning. He uses the very same strategy he used on Eve to try to destroy us. And when we begin to entertain doubt, everything thereafter is affected from this tarnished perspective.</p>\r\n<p>Let’s take a look at James:</p>\r\n<blockquote>&quot;But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But he must ask in faith without any doubting, for the one who doubts is like the surf of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind. For that man ought not to expect that he will receive anything from the Lord,” — James 1:5-7 NASB\r\n<p>&quot;If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking. But when you ask him, be sure that your faith is in God alone. Do not waver, for a person with divided loyalty is as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is blown and tossed by the wind. Such people should not expect to receive anything from the Lord.” — James 1:5-7 NLT</p>\r\n</blockquote>\r\n<p>I want you to look at both of these translations to see the full meaning behind them. And I encourage you to do your own study as well. In the NASB translation I’ve bolded the part that so clearly shows the meaning of James’ words about God’s generosity. Our God does not give according to our ability or perceived worth. If He did, He would not have sent His Son Jesus to die for <em>everyone</em>. And the Bible—which He gave us as His Word and truth, to learn from and grow in—is full of wisdom. God desires to give us wisdom.</p>\r\n<p>In the NLT translation, the bolded statement is clear that our faith must be in God alone, not ourselves. Almost as if to say, “No back up plans.” When we do this we’re not trusting God. We’re not believing what His Word says. We doubt God and the truth of His word.</p>\r\n<p>At the end of last year and early into this year, the enemy hit me so hard that this doubt crept in and began to attack my faith. I even began to doubt the truth of Romans 8:28! If you’ve been hanging out her for any length of time, you know that is my life verse. I’ve lived by it for years, have taught its truths and have built my faith upon it.</p>\r\n<p>Yet there I was in total chaos doubting what I had once known to be true. The enemy had found an opening and snuck in asking, “Is God really good to <em>you</em>?”</p>\r\n<p>If you look at the verses earlier in James 1, you’ll see he’s talking about our faith being tested. This leads to our need for wisdom. What James is saying is that when we ask for wisdom, we must believe we will receive it. And I believe this truth applies to all of God’s promises. He’s given us His Word and He is faithful. Instead of tossing back and forth like that wave looking for answers, we need to be still and wait upon Him to give us the answers, wisdom and grace that we need. And <em>believe</em> that He will.</p>\r\n<p>I have danced around the truth of James’ words for years, my friends, not wanting to be that doubter tossed by the wind and sea—it’s very humbling and sobering to realize I’d allowed the waves of doubt to rock my boat. But now that the shrouding clouds have lifted, I’m learning to recognize doubt and eradicate it.</p>\r\n<p>I love this quote from Jennifer LeClaire:</p>\r\n<p style=\"padding-left: 30px;\">“The battle is in the mind but the war is for your heart. Believing in our mind is mental assent but believing in our heart—having pure faith in our heart—is where the miracles happen.” — Jennifer LeClaire, author of Heart of the Prophetic</p>\r\n<p>God’s Word tells us that:</p>\r\n<blockquote>For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. — 2 Corinthians 10:3-5</blockquote>\r\n<p>What are those weapons of war that we wield? God’s Word, prayer, faith, truth—our spiritual armor (Eph. 6:10-17). My friends, the battle truly is in our minds first, thus why a transformed and renewed mind is crucial to a doubt free walk of faith.</p>\r\n<p><em>Doubts diminish as faith increases.</em></p>\r\n<p>I will stop her for now, but be sure to come back Friday for the rest of this revelation God gave me about &quot;dubious doubt&quot; and the stunning proof He gave me of what happens when we shift from doubt to belief. It&#39;s a story about miracles, my friends. I can&#39;t wait to tell you the rest!</p>\r\n<p>Grateful to be on this journey with you!</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://www.spirituallyunequalmarriage.com/.a/6a00d83451ee9f69e201b8d0932c6c970c-pi\" style=\"float: left;\"><img alt=\"SignatureGraphic2\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d83451ee9f69e201b8d0932c6c970c img-responsive\" src=\"http://www.spirituallyunequalmarriage.com/.a/6a00d83451ee9f69e201b8d0932c6c970c-150wi\" style=\"width: 150px; margin: 0px 5px 5px 0px;\" title=\"SignatureGraphic2\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p><em><span style=\"font-size: 8pt;\"><br />Copyright: <a href=\"http://www.123rf.com/profile_alphaspirit\">alphaspirit / 123RF Stock Photo</a></span></em></p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>",

The &quot;index.rdf&quot; feed does not include an enclosure that is required for podcasts. Most services requesting your blog feed will accept &quot;atom.xml&quot;, &quot;rss.xml&quot;, and your FeedBlitz feed URL - if you have your blog connected to FeedBlitz, the link would be <strong>http://feeds.feedblitz.com/*yourusername*</strong>.</p>\r\n<p>Another way to use your RSS feed URL is to set up a connection between your blog and other social media accounts using a third-party service like IFTTT (If This, Then That) at <a href=\"http://www.ifttt.com\" target=\"_blank\">www.ifttt.com</a>. With IFTTT, you can set up a connection between your blog feed with a series of “channels” including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and much more.</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://mperezsay.typepad.com/.a/6a01901c63d077970b01b8d08cdf92970c-pi\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Screen Shot 2014-11-04 at 7.50.05 PM\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a01901c63d077970b01b8d08cdf92970c image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://mperezsay.typepad.com/.a/6a01901c63d077970b01b8d08cdf92970c-800wi\" title=\"Screen Shot 2014-11-04 at 7.50.05 PM\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>If you are having a problem connecting your blog to Facebook or Twitter, IFTTT is a great alternative to look into for sharing your blog updates.</p>\r\n<p>Lastly, your RSS feed URL is automatically displayed when you first set up your blog in the Navigation Bar with the &quot;Subscribe&quot; link.&#0160; This is to make the URL available to your readers so they can add it to their favorite web feed applications like <a href=\"http://www.bloglovin.com\" target=\"_blank\" title=\"Bloglovin\">Bloglovin</a> and <a href=\"http://www.feedly.com\" target=\"_blank\" title=\"Feedly\">Feedly</a>.&#0160; There are extensions you can add to your browser which can add an RSS feed right in your browser like Google&#39;s <a href=\"https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/rss-feed-reader/pnjaodmkngahhkoihejjehlcdlnohgmp?hl=en\" target=\"_blank\">RSS Feed Reader</a> for Chrome.&#0160; Adding an extension to your browser will make it easier to locate a websites RSS feed link.</p>",

Every other week, we’ll debut a new post designed to help you push your blog content to a wider audience like a marketing rock star, and show you how to build a larger and more engaged community of readers along the way.</em></p>\r\n</blockquote>\r\n<p>So far in this series, we have learned different ways to market your blog like <a href=\"http://everything.typepad.com/blog/2014/09/market-blog-social-media.html\" target=\"_self\">using social media</a>, having <a href=\"http://everything.typepad.com/blog/2014/10/market-with-guest-authors.html\" target=\"_self\">guest authors</a> and <a href=\"http://everything.typepad.com/blog/2014/10/marketing-interactive.html\" target=\"_self\">getting interactive</a>. Today we're introducing a fun way to get your blog and content shown to a new audience. We're talking about \"Link Parties\" or sometimes called \"Blog Hops.\"</p>\r\n<p>A great example of how a link party works is from Typepad blog \"<a href=\"http://nicholeheady.typepad.com/capture_the_moment/\" target=\"_blank\">Capture The Moment.</a>\" They include link parties as part of their \"Make It Monday\" series:</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" style=\"display: inline;\" href=\"http://mperezsay.typepad.com/.a/6a01901c63d077970b01b7c6ee7964970b-pi\"><img class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a01901c63d077970b01b7c6ee7964970b image-full img-responsive\" title=\"Screen Shot 2014-09-10 at 3.39.40 PM\" src=\"http://mperezsay.typepad.com/.a/6a01901c63d077970b01b7c6ee7964970b-800wi\" alt=\"Screen Shot 2014-09-10 at 3.39.40 PM\" border=\"0\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>This image is an example of a Link Party with a handmade craft theme where each thumbnail links to a different blogger's craft blog post.</p>\r\n<p>You can host a Link Party around a theme (ie: Preparing for the Holidays) where everyone who participates shares a blog post on that specific topic.&nbsp;&nbsp;You don't always need a theme. You can keep the Link Party open for everyone to share their blog links, which is what we're doing here today.&nbsp; Keep reading!</p>\r\n<p>If you want to host a link party, a good way to get the word out is to ask some of your blog friends to co-host it with you.&nbsp; It's a great way to cross-promote each other's blogs.&nbsp; There are a lot of linking tools available but <a href=\"http://www.inlinkz.com/new/index.php\" target=\"_blank\">InLinkz</a> is one of the most popular and easy to use at <a href=\"http://www.inlinkz.com\" target=\"_blank\">www.inlinkz.com</a>.</p>\r\n<p>With an easy setup,<a href=\"http://www.inlinkz.com\" target=\"_blank\"> InLinkz </a>gives you a code to stick in your blog post using your <a href=\"http://help.typepad.com/compose_formatting.html\" target=\"_blank\">HTML editor tab </a>(and also share this code with your co-hosts). Whenever a link is added to the \"party,\" the widget will update on every blog sharing the Link Party code. We suggest adding any HTML from a third-party as a final step before publishing. This prevents issues that might occur when switching between the HTML tab and the Rich Text editor.</p>\r\n<p>If you hear about a blog hosting a Link Party or Blog Hop, check it out and see if you can add your blog to it. Now is a good time to start.&nbsp; We are looking for our Typepad bloggers to share their links with us (and everyone!) so click on the blue \"Add your link\" button, add your blog URL and don't forget to check out your fellow Typepad bloggers!</p>\r\n<div id=\"454267\" class=\"InLinkzContainer\"><a title=\"click to view in an external page.\" href=\"http://new.inlinkz.com/luwpview.php?id=454267\" rel=\"nofollow\">An InLinkz Link-up</a></div>\r\n<p>\r\n<script type=\"text/javascript\" src=\"//static.inlinkz.com/cs2.js?v=115\"></script>\r\n</p>\r\n<p>\r\n<script type=\"text/javascript\" src=\"//static.inlinkz.com/cs2.js?v=115\"></script>\r\n</p>\r\n<p>You can catch up with the rest of our series and check out our previous <a href=\"http://everything.typepad.com/blog/tips_and_tricks/\" target=\"_self\">Promotion and Marketing</a> tips to keep fresh eyes on your blog content.</p>",

We're talking about \"Link Parties\" or sometimes called \"Blog Hops.\"</p>\r\n<p>A great example of how a link party works is from Typepad blog \"<a href=\"http://nicholeheady.typepad.com/capture_the_moment/\" target=\"_blank\">Capture The Moment.</a>\" They include link parties as part of their \"Make It Monday\" series:</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" style=\"display: inline;\" href=\"http://mperezsay.typepad.com/.a/6a01901c63d077970b01b7c6ee7964970b-pi\"><img class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a01901c63d077970b01b7c6ee7964970b image-full img-responsive\" title=\"Screen Shot 2014-09-10 at 3.39.40 PM\" src=\"http://mperezsay.typepad.com/.a/6a01901c63d077970b01b7c6ee7964970b-800wi\" alt=\"Screen Shot 2014-09-10 at 3.39.40 PM\" border=\"0\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>This image is an example of a Link Party with a handmade craft theme where each thumbnail links to a different blogger's craft blog post.</p>\r\n<p>You can host a Link Party around a theme (ie: Preparing for the Holidays) where everyone who participates shares a blog post on that specific topic.&nbsp;&nbsp;You don't always need a theme. You can keep the Link Party open for everyone to share their blog links, which is what we're doing here today.&nbsp; Keep reading!</p>\r\n<p>If you want to host a link party, a good way to get the word out is to ask some of your blog friends to co-host it with you.&nbsp; It's a great way to cross-promote each other's blogs.&nbsp; There are a lot of linking tools available but <a href=\"http://www.inlinkz.com/new/index.php\" target=\"_blank\">InLinkz</a> is one of the most popular and easy to use at <a href=\"http://www.inlinkz.com\" target=\"_blank\">www.inlinkz.com</a>.</p>\r\n<p>With an easy setup,<a href=\"http://www.inlinkz.com\" target=\"_blank\"> InLinkz </a>gives you a code to stick in your blog post using your <a href=\"http://help.typepad.com/compose_formatting.html\" target=\"_blank\">HTML editor tab </a>(and also share this code with your co-hosts). Whenever a link is added to the \"party,\" the widget will update on every blog sharing the Link Party code. We suggest adding any HTML from a third-party as a final step before publishing. This prevents issues that might occur when switching between the HTML tab and the Rich Text editor.</p>\r\n<p>If you hear about a blog hosting a Link Party or Blog Hop, check it out and see if you can add your blog to it. Now is a good time to start.&nbsp; We are looking for our Typepad bloggers to share their links with us (and everyone!) so click on the blue \"Add your link\" button, add your blog URL and don't forget to check out your fellow Typepad bloggers!</p>\r\n<div id=\"454267\" class=\"InLinkzContainer\"><a title=\"click to view in an external page.\" href=\"http://new.inlinkz.com/luwpview.php?id=454267\" rel=\"nofollow\">An InLinkz Link-up</a></div>\r\n<p>\r\n<script type=\"text/javascript\" src=\"//static.inlinkz.com/cs2.js?v=115\"></script>\r\n</p>\r\n<p>\r\n<script type=\"text/javascript\" src=\"//static.inlinkz.com/cs2.js?v=115\"></script>\r\n</p>\r\n<p>You can catch up with the rest of our series and check out our previous <a href=\"http://everything.typepad.com/blog/tips_and_tricks/\" target=\"_self\">Promotion and Marketing</a> tips to keep fresh eyes on your blog content.</p>",

I have always had a lot of polish. Then kids came into my life and I stopped painting my nails. I little to chemically and impossible to find the time. Then I started again as they got older, but was so put off by the long dry time and the chipping, I lost interest. After a renewed polish interest a few years ago (so many low chemical options!) I stopped, again. I used nail skins for a bit (no dry time!) but they were a novelty and hard to take off. Then I got a few gel manicures (expensive!) so I bought a home lamp and kit and did gels myself, with mixed success. There was still the creepy light, and horrific removal which destroyed my nails, the chemicals, and the fact that could not use all my old polishes, they weren&#39;t compatible. BUT, it had everything else I desired, no dry time and long wear. Ultimately, it wasn&#39;t worth it, so I stopped again.</p>\r\n<p>Then, on my way back to from Santa Fe, in the Seattle airport, I was told about <a href=\"http://www.amazon.com/butter-LONDON-Patent-Gel-Nail-Tails/dp/B00EZVFFQY/?_encoding=UTF8&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=9325&amp;keywords=butter%20london%20tops%20and%20tails&amp;linkCode=ur2&amp;qid=1415204355&amp;sr=8-2&amp;tag=wwwamykarolco-20&amp;linkId=2ARHHQKG23YUSURW\" target=\"_blank\">butter London Patent-Gel Top &amp; Tails</a><img alt=\"\" border=\"0\" height=\"1\" src=\"http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=wwwamykarolco-20&amp;l=ur2&amp;o=1\" style=\"border: none !important; margin: 0px !important;\" width=\"1\" /> at the butter London store they have there. And, it&#39;s a big deal.</p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\">&#0160;<br /> <a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://angrychicken.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341c578853ef01b7c701002f970b-pi\"><img alt=\"926221_543743175769993_1891306067_n\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8341c578853ef01b7c701002f970b img-responsive\" src=\"http://angrychicken.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341c578853ef01b7c701002f970b-400wi\" style=\"width: 400px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"926221_543743175769993_1891306067_n\" /></a>day 7</p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: left;\">This is base and top coat set that dries instantly. I mean it. I don&#39;t mean sort-of dry, I mean, after 5 minutes, completely dry. Just like a gel. I followed the directions and it worked like a flippin&#39; miracle. I was nervous at first, so I was not moving until 10 minutes after my top coat was on, but then on time I waited 5 minutes, and then washed my hair—not a single ding or smudge. I do recommend giving it about 3 min. before you use the top coat, to have the color set.</p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: left;\">So, for dry time, I give it a 10. For durability, on me, no chipping at all. It slightly wears off the tips after day 6 or so, but it&#39;s not noticeable. I have kept it on as long as 12 days and it still looks great, except for some grow out. So, a 10 for durability. The removal? I swear it&#39;s easier then normal polish, you can use a normal remover. I use low chemical polish and remover (Zoya) and this has worked great. This also means my back stash of polish I have been keeping, and sadly not using, can now be used again. It&#39;s like christmas and my birthday! I have had a fellow nail polish addict/guru try product this as well and she also is very happy with it. I waited for 3 complete color changes to blog about this, because I kept thinking it was too good to be true.</p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: left;\">Things I want to mention:</p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: left;\">This set is expensive ($40) but worth it to me in every way. If anyone has tried a similar gel-like top coat that dries instantly and wears like this, I&#39;d love to know about it. It&#39;s not as shiny as a gel manicure. Also, the reviews are pretty all over the place. It&#39;s a miracle product for me, but other people have said the exact opposite, which makes me think that the polish you use might matter, and that people have different natural oils on their nails, and I know most nail products just don&#39;t work for all people across the board. I&#39;d buy this where you can return it after trying. I know Nordstrom sells it and accepts returns, (I think Sephora does, too?) and at this price, it&#39;s important to be able to return it if it&#39;s doesn&#39;t change your life.</p>",

Elle est connue depuis quelques siècles et sa genèse est un peu obscure. On sait seulement que c’est un hybride domestique, issu du croisement de deux autres espèces domestiques&#0160;: <em>Planeita populus</em> (la planche) et <em>Punctoria punctoris</em> (le clou commun à tête plate). Cette espèce, parfaitement inoffensive, est inféodée aux milieux rupestres et obscurs&#0160;: fond de garage, fond de grange, pièce de bricolage. Elle ne sort que très ponctuellement de son biotope habituel, et toujours pour y retourner rapidement.<br /><br />Alors comment expliquer que cette espèce, discrète et inoffensive, se soit répandue et multipliée dans tout le pays, bientôt sur tout le continent, en se muant en dangereux prédateur sanguinaire&#0160;?<br /><br />Car les dégâts sont énormes, et font vaciller le pays sur ses fondations. Jugez plutôt...<br /><br />En un mois, le monde de l’élevage déplore la perte de 30.000 têtes de bétail. Ce qui n’a pas manqué de déclencher une polémique entre les éleveurs et les protecteurs des grands prédateurs&#0160;:</p>\r\n<ul>\r\n<li>L’association Cap plancha (regroupant plusieurs associations de protection des grands prédateurs)&#0160;: « <em>On s’acharne médiatiquement sur Planeita punctoris, alors qu’il n’est pas sûr que ces pertes soient toutes dues à cette espèce. Il y a toujours eu des prédations effectuées par des ours errants, mais maintenant on n’en parle plus. Les pertes actuelles sont certainement dues aux ours. De plus, l’ONCFS ne sait pas formellement faire la différence entre des griffures d’ours et de Planeita, la plupart du temps. 93% des dommages sont classés «&#0160;Planeita punctoris non exclue</em>&#0160;».</li>\r\n<li>Les syndicats d’éleveurs&#0160;: «&#0160;<em>Depuis que Planeita punctoris est arrivée, nos pertes ont littéralement explosées. Cette situation est intenable, nous sommes à bout. Les écologistes n’ont qu’à en mettre dans leur garage, ils verront bien. Nous voulons retrouver une situation avec des pertes tolérables. Eradiquez Planeita punctoris, et rendez-nous nos ours, vautours et loups&#0160;!</em>&#0160;»</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<p>Mais ce n’est pas tout&#0160;: Il y a deux semaines, une meute de <em>Planeita punctoris</em> a traversé l’autoroute A6. Il en est résulté un monstrueux carambolage, dû aux éclatements de pneus&#0160;: 50 voitures impliquées, 20 poids lourds dont 2 citernes. Bilan&#0160;: 35 morts, 80 blessés, 10 disparus. Suite à cette catastrophe, le ministre de l’intérieur a interdit la circulation de véhicules à pneumatiques.<br /><br />Malgré les transports de marchandises ferroviaire et fluvial, la pénurie guette le pays, surtout les zones isolées. Dans les campagnes, on ressort les vieilles charrettes des années 1950. Certains bricolent même leurs voitures pour y fixer des roues pleines en bois. Cette situation de siège, loin d’unifier le pays, le divise plutôt. C’est une véritable cacophonie sur les mesures à prendre&#0160;:</p>\r\n<ul>\r\n<li>Ségolène Royal, ministre de l’écologie&#0160;: «&#0160;<em>Je vais prendre une décision courageuse&#0160;: il faut éradiquer cette espèce de notre pays&#0160;!&#0160;L’ONCFS et les fédérations de chasse seront mises à contribution</em>. »</li>\r\n<li>Cécile Duflot, porte-parole des Verts&#0160;: «&#0160;<em>Cela fait des années que nous demandons au ministre des transports un rééquilibrage entre les transports routiers et leurs homologues ferroviaires et fluviaux. L’état ne récolte que ce qu’il a semé. C’est un évènement positif en fait&#0160;: il faut profiter de cette opportunité pour engager sérieusement la transition des transports&#0160;!</em>&#0160;»</li>\r\n<li>La Fédération Nationale de la chasse&#0160;: « <em>Il est hors de question que nous participions à l’élimination de Planeita punctoris. Nous ne prendrons pas le risque que les dégâts dus aux populations résiduelles nous soient facturés&#0160;!</em>&#0160;»</li>\r\n<li>Les syndicats d’éleveurs&#0160;: «&#0160;<em>Les moyens de protection sont inefficaces&#0160;: si on n’éradique pas rapidement ce monstre sanguinaire, c’est la disparition annoncée du pastoralisme et de l’élevage extensif, de ses produits de qualité, de ses paysages à la biodiversité à visage humain (que nous vous offrons), de sa patrimonialisation valléenne, et j’en passe&#0160;; et le retour de la forêt à brigands, des ronces, des broussailles, des serpents, des araignées, des chauves-souris, des chats noirs, et j’en passe. Préfère-t-on l’élevage hors-sol, dans des bâtiments fermés étanches, avec sas blindé&#0160;? </em><br /><em>En dédommagement nous réclamons le prix du marché par tête de bétail + 50% pour risque d’avortement +50% pour stress du bétail + 50% pour préjudice moral + 50% pour l’entretien des paysages (que nous vous offrons). Vous verrez quand Planeita punctoris descendra en ville, planquez les enfants&#0160;!</em>&#0160;»</li>\r\n<li>L’association Cap plancha&#0160;: «&#0160;<em>C’est ridicule, Planeita punctoris ne s’attaque qu’au bétail domestique.

Le premier ministre a déclaré&#0160;: «&#0160;<em>c’est un problème de sécurité majeure&#0160;! Tous les services de l’état sont mobilisés.&#0160;</em>»</span></strong></h3>\r\n<p><strong><span style=\"color: #888888;\"><em>par Patrick Leyrissoux</em></span></strong></p>\r\n<p>Qu’en est-il au juste&#0160;? Commençons par le début...</p>\r\n<h2><strong>Un peu d’histoire</strong></h2>\r\n<p><em> <a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://bdm.typepad.com/.a/6a00d83451957369e201b7c7095604970b-pi\" style=\"float: left;\"><img alt=\"Planche a clou\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d83451957369e201b7c7095604970b img-responsive\" src=\"http://bdm.typepad.com/.a/6a00d83451957369e201b7c7095604970b-250wi\" style=\"width: 250px; margin: 0px 20px 5px 0px;\" title=\"Planche a clou\" /></a>Planeita punctoris</em> (nom commun&#0160;: planche à clous) n’est en fait pas vraiment une espèce nouvelle. Elle est connue depuis quelques siècles et sa genèse est un peu obscure. On sait seulement que c’est un hybride domestique, issu du croisement de deux autres espèces domestiques&#0160;: <em>Planeita populus</em> (la planche) et <em>Punctoria punctoris</em> (le clou commun à tête plate). Cette espèce, parfaitement inoffensive, est inféodée aux milieux rupestres et obscurs&#0160;: fond de garage, fond de grange, pièce de bricolage. Elle ne sort que très ponctuellement de son biotope habituel, et toujours pour y retourner rapidement.<br /><br />Alors comment expliquer que cette espèce, discrète et inoffensive, se soit répandue et multipliée dans tout le pays, bientôt sur tout le continent, en se muant en dangereux prédateur sanguinaire&#0160;?<br /><br />Car les dégâts sont énormes, et font vaciller le pays sur ses fondations. Jugez plutôt...<br /><br />En un mois, le monde de l’élevage déplore la perte de 30.000 têtes de bétail. Ce qui n’a pas manqué de déclencher une polémique entre les éleveurs et les protecteurs des grands prédateurs&#0160;:</p>\r\n<ul>\r\n<li>L’association Cap plancha (regroupant plusieurs associations de protection des grands prédateurs)&#0160;: « <em>On s’acharne médiatiquement sur Planeita punctoris, alors qu’il n’est pas sûr que ces pertes soient toutes dues à cette espèce. Il y a toujours eu des prédations effectuées par des ours errants, mais maintenant on n’en parle plus. Les pertes actuelles sont certainement dues aux ours. De plus, l’ONCFS ne sait pas formellement faire la différence entre des griffures d’ours et de Planeita, la plupart du temps. 93% des dommages sont classés «&#0160;Planeita punctoris non exclue</em>&#0160;».</li>\r\n<li>Les syndicats d’éleveurs&#0160;: «&#0160;<em>Depuis que Planeita punctoris est arrivée, nos pertes ont littéralement explosées. Cette situation est intenable, nous sommes à bout. Les écologistes n’ont qu’à en mettre dans leur garage, ils verront bien. Nous voulons retrouver une situation avec des pertes tolérables. Eradiquez Planeita punctoris, et rendez-nous nos ours, vautours et loups&#0160;!</em>&#0160;»</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<p>Mais ce n’est pas tout&#0160;: Il y a deux semaines, une meute de <em>Planeita punctoris</em> a traversé l’autoroute A6. Il en est résulté un monstrueux carambolage, dû aux éclatements de pneus&#0160;: 50 voitures impliquées, 20 poids lourds dont 2 citernes. Bilan&#0160;: 35 morts, 80 blessés, 10 disparus. Suite à cette catastrophe, le ministre de l’intérieur a interdit la circulation de véhicules à pneumatiques.<br /><br />Malgré les transports de marchandises ferroviaire et fluvial, la pénurie guette le pays, surtout les zones isolées. Dans les campagnes, on ressort les vieilles charrettes des années 1950. Certains bricolent même leurs voitures pour y fixer des roues pleines en bois. Cette situation de siège, loin d’unifier le pays, le divise plutôt. C’est une véritable cacophonie sur les mesures à prendre&#0160;:</p>\r\n<ul>\r\n<li>Ségolène Royal, ministre de l’écologie&#0160;: «&#0160;<em>Je vais prendre une décision courageuse&#0160;: il faut éradiquer cette espèce de notre pays&#0160;!&#0160;L’ONCFS et les fédérations de chasse seront mises à contribution</em>. »</li>\r\n<li>Cécile Duflot, porte-parole des Verts&#0160;: «&#0160;<em>Cela fait des années que nous demandons au ministre des transports un rééquilibrage entre les transports routiers et leurs homologues ferroviaires et fluviaux. L’état ne récolte que ce qu’il a semé. C’est un évènement positif en fait&#0160;: il faut profiter de cette opportunité pour engager sérieusement la transition des transports&#0160;!</em>&#0160;»</li>\r\n<li>La Fédération Nationale de la chasse&#0160;: « <em>Il est hors de question que nous participions à l’élimination de Planeita punctoris. Nous ne prendrons pas le risque que les dégâts dus aux populations résiduelles nous soient facturés&#0160;!</em>&#0160;»</li>\r\n<li>Les syndicats d’éleveurs&#0160;: «&#0160;<em>Les moyens de protection sont inefficaces&#0160;: si on n’éradique pas rapidement ce monstre sanguinaire, c’est la disparition annoncée du pastoralisme et de l’élevage extensif, de ses produits de qualité, de ses paysages à la biodiversité à visage humain (que nous vous offrons), de sa patrimonialisation valléenne, et j’en passe&#0160;; et le retour de la forêt à brigands, des ronces, des broussailles, des serpents, des araignées, des chauves-souris, des chats noirs, et j’en passe. Préfère-t-on l’élevage hors-sol, dans des bâtiments fermés étanches, avec sas blindé&#0160;? </em><br /><em>En dédommagement nous réclamons le prix du marché par tête de bétail + 50% pour risque d’avortement +50% pour stress du bétail + 50% pour préjudice moral + 50% pour l’entretien des paysages (que nous vous offrons). Vous verrez quand Planeita punctoris descendra en ville, planquez les enfants&#0160;!</em>&#0160;»</li>\r\n<li>L’association Cap plancha&#0160;: «&#0160;<em>C’est ridicule, Planeita punctoris ne s’attaque qu’au bétail domestique. De plus cette espèce a indéniablement une action bénéfique&#0160;: les véhicules routiers prélèvent un taux bien trop élevé d’animaux sauvages et domestiques, car ils n’ont aucun prédateur.
