My Favorite Skin Care

I have battled with acne since I was a teenager. I kept hoping I would grow out of out, but it’s still a struggle for me from time to time. Over the years I have tried various skin care brands, many of which are geared towards problem skin. Some didn’t work at all for me, while other brands worked for a time. I often thought I had finally found a brand that worked and would buy more when I ran out, only to find out that it no longer worked for my skin. So I kept searching for what worked best for me and my skin.

A few years ago, lots of people seemed to get into the “crunchy” kick. They were going all natural and had all kinds of homemade remedies, tips, and tricks. I started exploring the more natural route of skin care. I came across recommendations and rave reviews of using coconut oil, so I decided to give it a try.

Coconut oil seemed to work well for so many people, but it was an absolute disaster for my skin! It exacerbated the problem instead of resolving it. The search continued.

My Top 10 Travel Quotes

Today’s edition of Friday Favorites features 10 of my favorite travel-related quotes. I love to travel and explore near and far as often as I can! I hope these motivate and inspire you to go explore. You don’t have to spend a lot of money to travel and experience an adventure. Sometimes all we need to do is look up and out to see the world right around us.

“Not all those who wander are lost.” – J.R.R. Tolkien

“Travel is never a matter of money, but of courage.”

– Paulo Coelho

“Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends.”

– Maya Angelou

“Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.”

– Mother Teresa

“Two roads diverged in a wood and I – I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.”

– Robert Frost

Friday Favorites

This is the first edition of Friday Favorites. Every Friday I am going to share a few of my favorite things. It might be my current favorite products, quotes, travel destinations, Scripture verses, or something completely random. I hope you join in on the fun and share a few of your favorites with me.

For the launch of Friday Favorites, I’ve decided to share what inspires, motivates, and encourages me the most – 10 of my favorite Scripture verses!

  • 2 Timothy 3:16-17 “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” I believe that all Scripture is God-breathed. God speaks, encourages, inspires, sharpens, and challenges me through His word. The more time I spend reading the Bible, the more I am stretched to be a better reflection of Jesus Christ to the world.
  • John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” If people know just one verse from the Bible, it is often John 3:16. This is a verse I have heard my entire life, but I don’t ever want to take the message for granted. God loves you and me so much that He gave of Himself. He wants us. He wants us to repent (turn away) from our sin and live in such a way that shows we truly believe that God is who He says He is.
