Miracles From Heaven is such a feel good, a moving story filled with faith and love. This is a movie your whole family will enjoy. Miracles From Heaven tells the events of the Beam family...mainly their daughter's journey through sickness...and more importantly her healing process. The movie is filled with touching scenes, extremely emotional scenes, and very uplighting scenes. The film follows Annabel and her mother Christie, and their search for answers. This story hits close to home for me in the sense of the mother daughter relationship because I have three daughters, and I also had son who had a few weeks stay at the hotel al la NICU when he was born. Having a child in the hospital is no fun. That life lesson taught me to love and savor the little moments and to never take health for granted.


I love the little moments in life that capture your heart, the ones you don't see coming. The ones that don't come in a big package, but in the form of catching fireflies, or reading books in a hammock. The moments that come in healing, laughing until you cry, and sticky syrup baby kisses. The memories that flood you so strongly you feel like your heart will burst...like losing your shoe in the snow while running up a hill to take a photo, watching your first born play on the ocean shore for the first time, finally getting to bring your baby home from the NICU. I'm thankful everyday for the little blessings God has given me. 

Life whispers, so listen closely. 


It really is a good life, and you don't need to look far to find that.

It is important to take time in this life, to spend real tangible quality with those you love. Having three daughters, it isn't hard to spend time with them in the form of a craft. 

We spent the sunny summer afternoon crafty up our very own totes. It was so easy and very affordable. 

You'll need:
totes ( new or re-use an old one0
iron on letters ( I picked mine up a Walmart, along with my DVD) 
poms (optional)
jewels ( optional ) 
ribbon ( any kind-I used sequence) 
iron
hot glue gun
glue sticks 
plastic cats (J/K that's what Lyla wanted to glue on her bag #ohlyla) 

Step one: Iron the tote so you have a smooth surface to work with // Step two: design your tote, play around with the letters and decor // Step three: once you've decided on your design cut and peel back the plastic coating on the letters // Step four: iron letters on // Step five: hot glue embellishments on desired place. 


Be sure to pounce on the little moments of this good life, take the time to spend some quality time with your family...whether its doing a craft together...going to the park...playing a game...snuggling up and watching a movie...make the time.

Pick up Miracles From Heaven today, at Walmart...because when you do $1 of each purchase will go to Children's Miracle Network.
