Planning a Trip to the Zoo This Summer?

  Posted by Cheryl under Creation Inspirations Book, Misc
  May 28th, 2011

Anyone who knows me knows I really love zoos. I can honestly say visiting them energizes me. The ones that have habitats or experiences are my favorite. Feeling like I’m in a tropical rain forest or the arctic or the desert, even if it’s just for a few minutes, almost always puts me in a state of wonder and joy.Zoophoto © 2005 Will Lord | more info (via: Wylio)

Creation Inspirations was partially born out of that continual sense of marveling at what our Creator God did and continues to do every day. A zoo lets you experience everything from the fine, fine detail of a bird wing or tiny tree frog, to the grand size of an elephant or rhino all in one place.  How can that not be awe-inspiring?

Okay, yes, sometimes it’s too hot, or rainy or your feet are tired or someone is bored so your zoo visit might not be as wonderful as you’d like it to be.  But if you at least go into it with an expectant attitude, that you will be blown away by Creator God, hopefully at least part of the adventure will life both your heart and spirit and draw you together in faith.

To increase your chances of having an inspired trip, I also recommend taking along my book for the car ride, or using it after your return home. Many common zoo animals are featured allowing you to extend your adventure a little longer in addition to filling up some of that summer free time.  You can purchase it on my shop page, or via your favorite online retailer.

I’d also love to hear about your zoo trip so please come back and comment below!

Earlier this fall, I was unable to attend a planned craft show, so I have extra Creation Inspirations Sea Star Magnets. They’re great as stocking stuffers or to put in a Christmas card.

If you’re interested, contact me via the form or email (or Facebook) as they aren’t on the website.

It’s hard to believe it’s almost Christmas! I don’t know where the year went but it’s time for all of the visiting, sharing, eating, shopping and all the rest that makes up your family’s celebration.

With regard to the shopping part, I’d like to humbly suggest that you consider purchasing a copy (or more if you feel so inclined :-)) of Creation Inspirations either for your family or someone else’s.

Not sure who it might be right for? Here’s a short list that will hopefully help you fill out your gift list in the week to come.

  1. Kids ages approx 4-9
  2. Your family to another family
  3. Friends/neighbors who are seekers
  4. Giving tree gifts
  5. People you won’t see in person-I can mail anywhere in the U.S. just send me an email or use the contact form to let me know where to send it.

Also, please note that if you want to order from my site, you need to order SOON as orders will be sent via regular mail and we all know what happens to the mail in December. If you’d like something sent outside the U.S please contact me and we’ll see if it can arrive in time.

Questions? Feel free to leave a comment here, email me or use the contact form.

Get to Know Your Wild Neighbors Contest

  Posted by Cheryl under Misc
  October 22nd, 2010

I just read about this contest and it looks like fun. It gives kids and families the opportunity to explore nature and then enter either a drawing, photo, video or short paragraph.  There’s no cost and if you happen to live in San Diego, you can attend a live event as well.

The organization that shared the link  is pretty cool too-The Children & Nature network. They have other ideas to get out and enjoy the world around us.

If you enter, please let me know. I’ll be happy to link to something you post online or I’ll try to post a pic if you send it to me.

Be Inspired!
