So good 😭

What Does God Say About Your Sound?Brittany:
The best thing I could have done to find my sound was to ask the Lord what my voice does in a room. I used to get really frustrated with myself and feel disappointed after worship sets, thinking that I didn’t scream as loud as I should have.
One day I sat on my floor and asked the Lord what my voice does in a room. He showed me a vision of an arrow with raindrops and told me that my voice pierces hearts but also refreshes them. Up to that point, I hadn’t asked God what He thought about my voice because I was afraid of being disappointed.When He showed me that vision, I was able to see myself the way He sees me, and have greater appreciation for my voice.

Anytime I feel frustrated or start to go into that spiral of comparison, I remember the picture He gave me.

Morgan:
It’s vital to know what your voice does in a room, but also the unique gifting and anointing that you carry. When I walk into a room, what do I bring with me? Is it joy, peace, or breakthrough? When I speak, what happens? My singing voice isn’t different than my speaking voice, and what happens when I walk into a room is the same thing that happens when I walk onto a stage or write a song. Singing, speaking, leading and even just being who you are is all a part of what makes up your sound. Learn how to partner with what God is already doing through you and your sound.

PUNCH NEEDLE OBSESSION

I think the first time I ever got hooked on the idea on punch needling was when in primary school, where I watched TV Media (yeah it was my dream to order stuff from TV, including food blenders, bedazzler, etc) and saw this little device that was called the Perfect Punch. I’m not sure if that’s where it first started but I haven’t been able to find that exact product since.

Years on, 2018 specifically, I saw a tutorial which featured embroidery using something called a punch needle! It’s apparently super easy and all you need to do is keep punch the fabic with the thread and it creates little loops on the back side and stays there. I haven’t been successful with DMC thread but I got a kit on Taobao and been doing one with yarn and monk’s cloth.

Here’s some punch needling goodness to get you hooked as well 🙂

Jikka House

I’ve been watching Extraordinary Homes on netflix and of all the many spectacular homes, this one made my heart leap and soothed it at the same time.

While I always dream of buying my parents a place that helps them live well in old age and with dignity, this architect built it for his mother.

And that’s just too amazing.

The cedar planks on the outside make it look like a model of magical woodland creatures’ homes. Or if 5 out of the 7 dwarves moved to Japan.

The eclectic interior decor works so well, but it’s the bath that got me. Japanese baths are already awesome – but this one, spirals down gently and creates such a soothing swirl that I feel relaxed just by looking at it.

This short film on inclusivity amongst children is so heartwarming. It never feels good to be excluded, even amongst the neurotypical. Differences are everywhere but if they were not given so much emphasis, each individual could be… just… well… individual.
