The Best is Yet to Come Sweatshirt

I have been living in this sweatshirt since I got them printed. Amidst all kinds: the days we never wish to repeat, the repetitive hours of the mundane, and even the greatest days, what a comfort to hold that the best is still yet to come. The Apostle Paul reminds us that no matter what we experience on this earth, even if lifelong, it is a light momentary affliction in comparison to what awaits us in eternity with our Savior, Jesus Christ (2 Corinthians 4:17). All is Christ!

Branch Basics

This has been my favorite discovery in all of 2020. We've replaced everything in our house with Branch Basics! I love that we can use the same one bottle of concentrate to wash our dishes, remove stains, do our laundry, wash our fresh vegetables, clean our hands, scrub our bathroom, and use on diaper wipes. And it's all clean and non-toxic, a switch we're trying to make! 100% worth the investment, it works, and works SO WELL. I can't rave about Branch Basics enough. 

Check their instagram @branchbasics for a 20% discount (biggest sale they do!) over Black Friday-Cyber Monday. And if you miss it, you can still use my code 'HANDSTOLEARN' for 10% off all starter kits for now through February.

"As smoky as Dwight setting the office on fire and as smooth as Michael Scarn, with a finish as sweet as the candy Pam leaves out on the reception desk, the blend of South and Central American coffees in Boom Roasted go together like a stapler in Jello. Enjoy this dark roast while watching every season of The Office for the 1st, 2nd or 100th time."
