I already owned this book and did this review because it as one I truly love! No disclaimer needed but I’m included it anyways in accordance with FTC regulations!
As I mentioned previously, I have decided to join in on 30 Days of Thankfulness over at Modesty is Next to Beauty. This began in October but I am starting today: November 1st.
Today I am thankful that I was able to get our blog changed for Thanksgiving, that I was able to complete my first post for November is Epilepsy Month, and that we made it through our busy Halloween weekend of fun. I’m thankful that my girls and my boys are all healthy and doing well at this time. I look forward to a week of school starting back tomorrow. There is so much more but mostly I’m thankful that God has blessed me with this wonderful life I am able to live. God’s love is like no other and for that I am most thankful.
Until the next time.
November is Epilepsy Awareness month. Epilepsy is an inherited disorder passed through generations of our family. As infants both of my daughters were diagnosed with this disorder. It has completely changed our lives.
To find out more about Epilepsy you can visit Epilepsy.org.
This month Luv’N Lambert Life will showcase information about Epilepsy. The only way to change how those who have this disorder are treated is to teach others and Epilepsy education is what this month is all about for us.
What is Epilepsy?
The Epilepsy Foundation describes it as “a medical condition that produces seizures affecting a variety of mental and physical functions. It’s also called a seizure disorder. When a person has two or more unprovoked seizures, they are considered to have epilepsy.
A seizure happens when a brief, strong surge of electrical activity affects part or all of the brain. One in 10 adults will have a seizure sometime during their life.
Seizures can last from a few seconds to a few minutes. They can have many symptoms, from convulsions and loss of consciousness to some that are not always recognized as seizures by the person experiencing them or by health care professionals: blank staring, lip smacking, or jerking movements of arms and legs.” (taken from the Epilepsy Foundation: https://www.epilepsyfoundation.org/about/)
There is much more to Epilepsy but this is a very good description of the disorder. Epilepsy comes in several forms that affect each person differently. Sometimes more than one type of seizure can affect the brain. We will discuss more about types of seizures later this month.

I just finished watching A Night With The King, the story of Esther, Queen of Persia and was immediately reminded of this post I have been meaning to write. (BTW, that was a REALLY GOOD movie!)
I am currently on a quest to fill my heart and my mind with knowledge of the Heavenly Father. I have a thirst that I am in need of filling, to learn so much about Him and what He wants for my life and that of my children and family.
Recently, I read Out Live Your Life by Max Lucado and I plan to re-read it again in the future, taking more time to study each chapter as Lucado meant it to be read. I’m also anxiously awaiting my recently gifted (won) copy of Feminine Appeal from Jasmine at Far Above Rubies (see sidebar for link to this wonderful site!) Today I purchased (online) a copy of Passionate Housewives Desperate for God and I can hardly wait to dive into to it when it arrives. I’ve ordered several books for the kids also, that we will be working on together.
I feel God pushing me to learn all I can about Him and His wants for me. I want to learn to be the Proverbs 31 woman He wishes for me to be. I want to teach my daughters and my son to be all God wishes for them to be, to have patience and love beyond normal expectations with God leading their life. I am so very excited to be following His loving guidance onto this path that He’s leading me upon. I can’t wait to see how it changes and improves our lives.
