july sponsors. we love the summer. enjoy these great offers.

it's a great month. we love july. but it is so hot and so busy for us. young life camp trip. family vacation with my family. college reunion for me with my five best friends who i only see like once a year at the most. a wedding. a golf tournament. it is going to be so good and so busy. but we all know life is busy. so let us simply embrace it.

we head to young life camp tomorrow night with close to 180 students from high schools in chesapeake. it has been two years since i led a cabin. it needs to be said...I CAN NOT WAIT. it is my heart. i love the late nights. the adventures. talking about life and Christ and how it all fits together for these high school girls. for the rest of their lives. it is an incredible gift. i wish everyone got the chance. i get to do it with my husband and some of my closest friends. please pray for us at camp. lives will be changed forever in the next seven days.

but i could not leave for a week without introducing you to some BRAND NEW sponsors and some of our FAVORITES. check it out. seriously. i would not lead you astray.

we have two new sponsor this month: Juliethefish designs. i pretty much love everything she makes. it is mostly all custom jewelry. i love custom. dates. names. initials and so much more. check it out. i am sure you will love it as much as i do. there is a necklace in my future for sure.
another new friend is from Scentsy. these candles are amazing. they actually do not have a flame or wick. they smell pretty much incredible. i got one as gift last fall and our house smelled like cinnamon roles. they are real safe which is great. ava actually touched the wax on accident and i waited for a scream. nothing happened. it is not hot enough to hurt or burn. we just peeled the wax off and that was it.obsessed.i would get one if i were you.

returning this month are some of our favorites. One Delightful Button is back. katie is a friend too and an almost momma. so fun. we love babies. her products are being sold at some young life camps this summer. that is awesome. so great to be able to watch her company grow and grow. Neve Inspired. kris and i are friends now. we emailed yesterday about how fun it would be to live in the same town. justin and i need to head to charleston because i hear it is pretty incredible little town and i want to meet kris. she made these adorable purple and grey dresses with some great pockets for ava and my niece ava. see HERE. gotta love it.
A few years ago one of my friends wore a simple necklace hand stamped with her son’s name.  I loved it and thought, “Maybe I could make that.” That is how the journey of juliethefish designs began.  Now I spend late night hours hammering away while my loved ones sleep.  juliethefish designs is an online shop full of handmade, custom keepsakes.  Each piece is created uniquely with your personalized information.  I am honored to make hand stamped keepsakes for customers all over the world.  I am inspired by their lives, the stories they share, and their occasions for giving. please visit the website at   .During the month of July please use the coupon code LIBBY711 at Etsy checkout to receive 10% off your order!

    Can't wait to hear about your week.

  4. Libby,
    I really can't wait to hear about camp and how it all was for you. Not sure when you're going to read this, but please know that I am praying for you, your cabin, and for girls to receive Christ. If they do cardboard testimonies...I wish I could be there to see you. It makes me cry just typing it. Praying for God to use you mightily for Him.
    Love, Aimee
