Lifestyle Inspiration Roundup | July 2017 Edition

Lifestyle Inspiration Roundup July 2017Welcome to the first edition of the new monthly roundup posts! Each month in these posts, you will find lifestyle inspiration to keep things fresh and fun. And July is just the beginning!

July is the prime of summertime. Chillaxing in the pool, having cookouts, and don’t forget bonfire s’mores! What would make these moments even better? Some good mood music.

Music

Even if you don’t like country music, the lyrics and tune of Summer Nights by Rascal Flatts is the perfect summer mood song! Because summer nights are the most magical part of this season. So turn up the volume and get ready to listen to some feel good music!

Atmosphere

I don’t know about you, but I like to change up my surroundings according to the season. For me, July is all about seashells, flowers, and all an around nautical theme. Blues, greens, and the smell of a sea breeze are my go-tos. Here are some pieces I found that I would so love to have at my house!

Entertainment

I just might feature these guys every month because they absolutely rock! Rhett and Link from Good Mythical Morning, or GMM as their fans the “Mythical Beasts” like to call them, have a knack for making people laugh. They do everything crazy and fun. The video featured above is one of my favorites. It made me laugh so hard that I was sweating!

Try Something New

Each month is an opportunity to try something new and enrich your life in some way. This month, try gardening! It’s a little late in the year for planting most seeds, but you can get a mature plant at your local home garden store. If you’re already gardening (yay for you!) then try out a new plant! Grow some flowers or produce that you can enjoy the fruits of (pun intended) later.

July Challenge

With each roundup post there will also be a monthly challenge issued to help you help make the world a better place! For July, I challenge you to help someone that needs a break to relax! Summer is the time to recuperate, especially for the people that are chronically overworked. So grab whoever that is and take them somewhere fun or relaxing so that they can shake off the day’s worries.

Christian Inspiration Roundup | July 2017 Edition

Christian books, music, videos, and inspirationAs Christians, we know the importance of discovering new learning tools and inspiring materials, so that we can grow closer to God. Because of that, I’ve decided to start a new monthly series.

Introducing monthly inspiration roundups!

Each month, I will be compiling a list of a few helpful, fun, and\or encouraging things I’ve found to help keep your faith walk always fresh and moving. Oh yeah.

Without further ado, let’s get started with our first edition: July 2017!

Music

In honor of summer camp season, I chose the song that was my favorite during my camp years: You Won’t Relent by Jesus Culture. This song has the ability to send chills up my spine and bring tears to my eyes. It talks about how God won’t relent calling us closer because of His unquenchable love for us.

Reading


I love Christian self-help books, and this one helped form my view of God’s purpose for femininity. It’s called Captivating by John and Stasi Eldredge. This book really goes into depth about the mysteries of a woman’s soul and how to use your womanhood for the Lord. No matter your age, the message is something we all need to hear in order to change our world for the better!

Listening

Take some time out to listen to these two wonderful ladies from Girl Defined. Whether you watch this video, or some of their others, they do a great job of explaining how God sees us and what He wants for us in life. While woman of any age can benefit from their channel, I would definitely recommend their content to teens and young women.

Something New

Each month is a new opportunity to try something new! This month, I’m going to start writing out Bible verses to remember them better. I invite you to try it with me! If you’re already doing this (yay you!) then try to add a new twist, like writing them in print, then cursive, then all caps. Things like this help us memorize!

July Challenge

Along with these monthly inspiration roundups, I’m going to issue a monthly challenge. For July, I challenge you to go above and beyond in some way to be kind to your family. Sometimes, it’s more difficult to be nice to the people closest to you. That’s why being kind to family is so important. When being kind is hard to do, and yet is still done, it shows God’s love shining through us! So, this month be extra helpful around the house, be encouraging, let someone else watch what they want on TV. Make July the month of kindness!

Thank you for being a part of the first inspiration roundup! Don’t for get to pin, share, and leave a comment sharing what you thought about July’s list, and suggesting what to share next month. Stay tuned for August!
