Our Thanksgiving Day this year included our immediate family and my in-laws (we celebrated with my family last weekend). It was full of turkey (but no stuffing!), potatoes, salad, cranberries, and our favorite traditional Norwegian food–lefse! I had to ask 3 different employees to help me find it in the grocery store, so I may just need to make my own next year–ha!
I hope that you had an enjoyable day and were able to take a few moments to pause and reflect on the blessings God has given you. As the saying goes, there is always, always, always something to be thankful for.
I wanted to share some amazing Black Friday deals from Christian companies! Many of us love to support small businesses that are run by Christians and also Christian retailers (myself included!) so I hope you’ll find something that will be perfect for gift-giving or your own enjoyment in these deals!
Some links are referral links, which means I do earn a small commission when you buy through a link. However, it doesn’t cost you anything extra and I only recommend products I’ve used with my family and believe will help you too! Thanks for your support! :)

EXTRA TIP: As you’re online shopping this weekend and beyond, don’t forget to shop through Ebates! It’s a cash back website, and you simply search Ebates for the store you’ll shop at (Kohls, Gap, there are tons) and click through the link provided to trigger a percentage of cash back! I either visit the site or use the toolbar app on my computer.
I’ve been using it for years to get cashback on my online purchases (it adds no extra cost to a purchase), and I was able to pay for my Christmas cards with my last “cashback” check! The toolbar does the work for me—it pops up to remind me to activate cashback when I’m shopping so all I have to do is click the button. A lot of people wonder if this is legit, and it absolutely is :) Click here to earn a $10 bonus with your first purchase through Ebates.
Have a wonderful weekend and happy shopping!
