Inspired Me Monday: The Return

I am so excited to bring you something inspiring, original and something you probably haven't seen before. A good friend of mine, Amber Gurr, wrote a Christian song and sang it with her husband, Justin,  in this song, The Return. Amber is working on 3 more songs and hoping to work towards an album. They just barely set up a blog as a place to keep people updated on the process! Bookmark it so you can check back and see how they are doing!

Please watch and support them, remember to share this link on your Facebook page or with people you think will enjoy the video. I would love to boost their youtube views! I am so excited for them. I think they are incredibly talented and I'm happy they want to share Lord's message with the world in such a beautiful way!

Here is what Amber had to say about this song and song writing.

This is my second song to record.  My husband Justin is on lead and I am playing piano and singing harmonies.  This is actually the FIRST song that I've written in this phase of my life.  They are kind of flooding in at this point, and in general coming easier than this song came.  

The thoughts and feelings expressed in this song were the ones that first came to mind when I sat down and decided I wanted to write Christian music.  I've been through a lot in my life and I have found so much more joy in following the Lord's way.  Of course that joy is now all I want for everyone.  Even when you go through hard things, when you do it with Christ, you can carry His peace with you through it.  That is why, like Paul says "all things are possible through Christ which strengtheneth me."

How to turn off Voice Over (Mac OS)

If you (or your toddler) have ever accidentally turned on Apple's "Voice Over" and can't figure out how to turn it off, I sympathize. I am sure it is awesome and extremely useful for those who need it. That aside, it is obnoxious.

Note: I could not find a way to get out of it by going into Voice Over Utility. Grrrr.

By pushing random buttons while my computer kept telling me what I was doing, I found out how to solve the problem.

Without further ado:

Press Command and F5 at the same time.

Seriously. That's it. And... you're welcome. Actually, I am not sure if this will ever be useful to anyone other than myself but at least I have a place to find the solution again, should the need ever arise...

Amazing Two FREE Massage Deal for Utah Woman-Folk

My dear friend, Sarah (pictured to the right), is a talented massage therapist who specializes in revitalizing woman! Not only is she incredibly skilled at what she does but she is a beautiful and delightful woman, inside and out. I am truly blessed to know her!

She has a deal going on right now where you can get TWO free 60 minute massages!

I am going to cut and paste what she has on her site,, below:

Who would not want a free massage?  I know I would not miss the chance! Currently I am doing a special deal that when you purchase and watch a very important new documentary that is out you get free massages!  I believe that this documentary is so vital and important to get out into each American citizen's hands that I want to do this special to encourage and motivate people to take the time to watch it.  Here is how it works.  You order the documentary online then let me know you did so and you get your first free massage.  Then after you get your documentary in the mail and watch it let me know you watched it and you get your 2nd free massage.  Sound fair? :)  Here is the trailer and information:

AGENDA: Grinding America Down (Trailer) from Copybook Heading Productions LLC on Vimeo.

Just to be clear, the dvd costs $18 and with shipping it will be $21 and something cents. So, the cost involved still makes it around $11 dollars for each 60 minute massage! Oh and they take Paypal, which makes it easier!

1. Buy the video - tell Sarah, schedule your first free massage
2. Watch the video - tell Sarah, schedule your second free massage

SO EASY. Seriously worth it!

Go treat yourself, asap!

Inspire Me Monday: School Science Project : Organic vs. Non- Organic Sweet Potato

This video, My Potato Project,  inspired me in a few different ways:

1. I am all about healthy food and this is a great little demonstration. The message is easy to understand and enlightening.
2. I love that this little girl is spreading the message. I think children can be our best humanitarians!
3. My 2 yr old son loved this video and wants to do the project too, exact quote.. "Mommy let's sprout too!" So watching this video is leading us to ACTION.

I hope you do it to!

Please watch it & Enjoy!
