may designs prize // loving the simple things

Last month, I won the giveaway that Amanda from SKG hosted. I was simply ecstatic! The prize was a personally designed May Book of my choice. They've probably got over 100 choices just for the cover! I decided on a light pinky blush with a Bible verse for the cover. I just checked their website...it looks like it was updated and they removed that option. :P I don't know why! It's so pretty!! Anyways..

 I was amazed with the choices for the inside pages -  you could do a weekly agenda, prayer journal, adult coloring pages, health journal, wedding planner, etc! This did not help my decision process. lol! I did pick the 40 day Prayer Journal. I love the idea of writing down your heart to God. <3

 I once was scrolling along on a random blog, and I saw my name! I quickly scanned the post to see what it said because, who wouldn't?! ;)  It said something I won't ever forget. "She just enjoys the simple things in life and that helps me to do so also." And, even though I can't remember who said that, thank you!

Would you want a May Book?
Do you prayer journal??

  5. WOW!!! That May Book sounds *amazing*! I have never heard of them before, but man, I would love them. All those options though...I could never make up my mind about the cover, and man, don't even get me started on trying to pick what I'd use it for!
    I don't really prayer journal, but I used to write letters to God a few years ago back when I was having a ton of anxiety in my life. ;)

  7. Wow, a May book sounds so neat!! I would have a hard time deciding what to do with it with all those great options! Yes I have a prayer/Bible journal, I love writing down scriptures that stood out to me in my quiet time, prayer requests/praises/answered prayer, etc. <3

    1. That's what I thought! I honestly felt the same way, so I took some battle tactics with me. ;) I first went through them all and gave mental ratings. Then, I went through AGAIN, but this time opening up the ones I did like in another tab. It took me about 20 minutes to pick through those ones. :P lol! That sounds amazing. I admit, I honestly have never really done anything like it... :P I am now though. :D
