Sunday Encouragement-Happy Easter!

Happy Easter friends! If you’re looking for the Easter bunny, you won’t find him here. There are no colored eggs, no Easter baskets or Easter candy.

Although all of that is cute and fun, Easter is not about the bunny. Easter is all about Jesus.

Sunday Encouragement-Happy Easter!
My prayer for us today is that we will celebrate the true meaning of Easter. He is worthy of our praise!


If you have stopped by and you don’t know Jesus, I would be honored to share him with you. You can email me at cyndispivey(at)gmail(dot)com.

Have a blessed Easter Sunday!!

Styling an Easter Dress

Hey friends! Is it Friday already? Where does the week go? I wanted to share something with you today, let’s just say it’s a new adventure.

But first, I wanted to show you a dress I recently styled for Cassie, a friend of mine. The dress is from The Limited and it’s her Easter dress.

Styling an Easter Dress

Here are a couple of ways I styled it for her.

Easter can be a little cool so I added an off white shrug. I love coral and navy together and I thought this necklace could be the focal piece. Then I added some gold bracelets, stud earrings and nude heels.

The next way I styled it is with a coral blazer. Then I added a long necklace with some hoop earrings and wedge heels.

Now, for my new adventure. I love to style outfits and to be honest, I get a lot of requests to style a dress or a piece of clothing.

Actually I’m getting more than I can do, and my husband is starting to complain a little about the amount of time I’m spending on my computer.

I love, love, styling outfits but to be fair to my family and to do the best I can possibly do, I’d like to offer my services for a small fee.

Here’s what I’ll do: (Go here for my Styling Services page. It’s under About Me in my header.)

1. Style an outfit for you with accessories. (You have the dress, shirt, skirt or pants and send me the link of where you purchased it.) You can give me the amount you’d like to spend. I’ll have this done in 2 business days for a styling fee of $10.

2. I’ll pick out a dress or outfit for your special event such as a wedding, graduation, etc. If you want this, send me a picture of yourself. I’ll pick out your outfit and style it with accessories. I’ll have this done in 3 business days for a styling fee of $15.

There are other things I’d love to add to this in the future. Possibly some skype conversations, wardrobe consultation but for right now this is where I’m going to start.

***This does NOT mean that you can’t email me with questions about styling, I don’t ever mind, but for an entire outfit and for a quicker response I’m going to try it this way. 

I hope all this makes sense, please let me know if you have any questions. Is there anything else you would like for me to add? I love your ideas!

Beauty For the Heart~~In May, I’m speaking to a group of women about “Beauty For the Heart”. How do we look beautiful from the inside? It’s not always easy. Bitterness, anger and pride can easily rear their ugly head.

But God’s word says, “Lord, may the words of my mouth and the thoughts of my heart be pleasing in your eyes. You are my Rock and my Redeemer.” Psalm 19:14 (NIRV)

Praying today that our words and our thoughts will be pleasing to Him.

Have a blessed day!

Simply Sunday-I Need You

Happy Easter! What a glorious day to celebrate Jesus! I can hardly wait to get to church this morning and worship with my church family.

I love to share songs with you that are speaking to me. I’ve been listening to this song by Matt Maher a lot. It’s a great reminder of how I need Jesus and boy do I NEED HIM!

Lord, I come, I confess
Bowing here I find my rest
Without You I fall apart
You’re the One that guides my heart

Lord, I need You, oh, I need You
Every hour I need You
My one defense, my righteousness
Oh God, how I need You

Where sin runs deep Your grace is more
Where grace is found is where You are
And where You are, Lord, I am free
Holiness is Christ in me

Teach my song to rise to You
When temptation comes my way
And when I cannot stand I’ll fall on You
Jesus, you’re my hope and stay

Do you know Him? If not, I’d love to talk with you, you can email me at cyndispivey(at)gmail(dot)com.

Thank you for stopping by! You’re a blessing to me!

Easter Blessings Galore!

It’s Monday and my week of vacationing is over!

It’s back to the swing of things and I’m already feeling behind.

We had a wonderful weekend filled with Easter blessings.

We began Sunday studying God’s word and worshipping with our church family.

What a morning of celebration and praise. I’m so thankful for Jesus and all He has done for us.

Sunday afternoon we spent with my family, aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, etc.

There were kids galore and that’s just how I like it!



This year was special because this was Colt Allen’s first Easter!!!

Oh my, do Cici and Pops love this little guy!

He makes everything more fun!

He doesn’t quite get the whole hunting for Easter egg thing yet!

He loves to open that mouth wide!

What a day filled with Blessings!

How did you spend your Easter Sunday?

The Hope of Easter

Happy Easter!

What a day of celebration and hope for those of us who know Jesus Christ.

He is risen!

Then the angel spoke to the women. “Don’t be afraid!” he said. “I know you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead, just as he said would happen. Matthew 28:5-6

I wonder today if you need to be reminded of the Hope we have in Jesus Christ.

Is there something that you feel hopeless about?

  • Maybe a family member or friend who has not accepted Christ
  • a wayward child
  • a friend or family member that has a destructive addiction
  • a marriage that is falling apart

The story of Easter is a story of Hope.

We have a Savior that has paid the price and set us free!

He is alive and He can change lives. That is our Hope!

How do I know? Because I am a life that has been changed, a sinner that has been set free!

I know I shared this song a few weeks ago, but I couldn’t help but share it again today.

I could listen to it a million times and it still makes me cry!

Have a wonderful and Hope-filled Easter!
