It's yearbook time again!

Anyone remember my post from last March about Shutterfly's new yearbooks? Well, now that school is back in session again, at least for most folks (hard to tell about all you homeschoolers, hehe), this is the perfect time of year to start thinking about putting together a yearbook for your children - or even for younger siblings or friends.

Too busy to do any "real" scrapbooking? These photo yearbooks would be an absolutely perfect way to commemorate a year of homeschooling - when you don't have the option of getting a yearbook through your school. It's so worth it to preserve all those special memories - your children will treasure them for the rest of their lives!

Prices start as low as $6 (yes, really!) and just peeking at the creative, colorful sample layouts here gets me all excited to put one together myself -- even though my own baby isn't even born yet, hehe. Someday I'll have a chance to join in. :D I haven't actually seen one of these yearbooks in print yet, but everything else I've ordered from Shutterfly over the years has been excellent quality and I'm sure these books are no exception.

If you'd like to keep track of Shutterfly's newest promotions and products, visit the links I've listed below. They frequently have great sales and coupon codes, and I've been able to catch some amazing deals! New customers also get 50 FREE prints with your first order, which is unbeatable. Check it out!

Full disclosure: Shutterfly offered to give me a free photo book in exchange for posting about their new yearbooks. But I assure you that my opinions are honest and I really am excited about trying it out. :D

Most of you have probably heard of Nick Vujicic, a young man born without arms and legs. By God's grace, he has been used in big ways in recent years, inspiring thousands upon thousands of people worldwide. Nick was married earlier this year and their first child is already on the way - so good to see God blessing him in these exciting ways!

I'm really looking forward to reading his newest book when it comes out early next month: it looks like a good one! You can check out the first chapter here, and watch this little video clip:

"I keep a pair of shoes in my closet because I believe in miracles."

Yes, that is real faith in action. May God help me to trust Him more!
