Moving from Head to Heart

It’s easy to learn God's word and to know His promises but does that mean we really understand them, or that we feel the security that comes with them? Often not. The distance between my head and my heart is probably not even a couple of foot but actually this can sometimes be the longest journey.

But ‘why?’ you might ask and what I’ve been learning is that we put conditions on God’s love for us. Conditions that God has never imposed. His word says that we are enough, that we can’t do anything to increase His love for us, that He approves of us and that He delights in who we are. Notice that not once there does it mention what we do or the characteristics that we display. There is no small print in the Bible, it is all above-board and clearly spelled out. There is no catch that says God loves evangelists more or that God loves those who can recite the bible from memory. It just simply says that He loves us and wants to be in a close and personal relationship with each one if us.

We have to be willing to accept the forgiveness that God extends us. We must believe it when He says that once forgiven He forgets our sins; that there is no list being kept of our indiscretions. We then have to go a step further and we have to forgive ourselves. We can be so hard on ourselves, expecting far more than is necessary. We do not have to be the best, have the greatest earnings or live the most exciting life. Who needs to be the envy of their friends? Not me but who needs to feel (really feel, like with your whole being feel) or experience the love of God? Probably all of us and I know for sure me.

I want to move to a position of experiential love. After having been a committed Christian for fourteen years I probably should already be fully in this place. I should feel that God absolutely loves me but right now my reality is that I know God loves me and that is head knowledge. It is part of my beliefs, it is because of my faith but I’m just working on the acceptance that there are no conditions and being able to just feel in my heart that I am good enough. I am accepted. He loves me. I don’t have to fulfil any particular mandate.

I need to feel free to lie on a bed for a whole day and do nothing but wallow in His love for me. To feel absolutely sure that even lying there in my nothingness I am enough. A couple of weekends ago I attended an Angela Kemm conference, where there was a fire tunnel and within it I was told that I am a cherished daughter of God, He sees my beauty, He knows my loving heart and that all labels have fallen off me. I just have to walk into my rightful place as a beloved daughter of the most high.

And I’m doing it. I’ve not been involved in negative speak this week, I’m busy building myself up and I’ve vowed to myself that when I do not like something in my life I either need to accept it and move on or I need to change it. I can not be negative about it as that will just pull me down. I’m so grateful for the fresh revelation that came last week that I still have a long way to go before I can say I am fully positive about my life and most importantly about my behaviour and attitude toward myself.

So here is to practise and perseverance. I’ll keep putting one foot in front of the other and being positive about all of it. Praying for those who test and infuriate me and taking actions to bless those who need me.

I am walking today as a beloved daughter of the king of all kings and I’m so grateful He loves me.

Thank you Daddy. From your daughter, Mich xx

Letter to all Mums from God

Image Credit: Liane Metzler

Hey Mumma,

I was chatting to God earlier this week and He told me some things I have to share with you. Well, not just only you but all Mums, Moms, Mams, Mamas, Mummas and Mummys.

There are a few things that He wants you to know and He’d really appreciate it if you listen up good, if we all listen up good.  He finds Himself repeating these messages time and time again but thankfully He is a patient father and loves to teach us. He knows it takes us a while to let the deep lessons sink in and that sometimes we need to hear the same thing ten times before it really takes a seat, so do keep coming back to this letter and ultimately to Him.

First up, He wants you to remember that being a parent is hard, this isn’t an easy ride that you are supposed to sail through. There will be challenges for you and for your kids but that’s good as it will result in growth for you both. Lean on God, He is your strength in these times.

Following on from that it is worth remembering that ‘easy and convenient’ probably aren’t the answer to being a good parent. Children need boundaries, responsibilities and consequences that they can count on. Those children who push back and challenge us as they grow are probably tomorrow’s leaders and innovators, so celebrate them.

But don’t feel overwhelmed as everything that God wants your child to be is already in them. It is not our job to make them but just to point and guide them, we need to be there to help them discern good decisions and learn from the bad ones.

Remember though that you are not doing this parenting lark in your own strength. You are raising mini warriors for Christ and He has your back. You don’t have to earn God’s favour by striving, you already have it because it is who you are in Christ that matters most. I love this quote –

It’s not what we do that determines who we are,
it is who we are that determines what we do.

Parenting, it’s a massive responsibility, right? And we want to keep our children innocent and allow them to mature at an appropriate rate, so sometimes we shelter them and don’t let them know about the awful things going on in the world as that would make them sad but guess what? God says that we need to allow our children to see and hear some of the sad things so they grow and develop into compassionate and loving adults. Of course, we must keep things age appropriate and we have to remain available as their back-up and support but sheltered kids with a great life can grow up to be selfish adults and no-one wants that.

He knows you sometimes feel invisible as a mum but be reassured that being there for your kids builds their security. Service to our family is so important, He sees it and He is so pleased, so next time you feel your kids or husband are taking you for granted let it go as God appreciates you. Don’t be tempted to run back to whatever it is that makes you feel visible or gives you a sense of worth, just nestle into the crook of God’s arm and know you are in the right place doing the right thing. Your worth and your security is rooted in God so stop searching beautiful mama.

Read these promises and just know that everything will be all right. You might be feeling truly shattered right now, or unloved, or ugly, or broken or beyond redemption but you’re not. You are a precious daughter of the most high and He wants to speak to you in the way you need to hear and say –

I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness. Jeremiah 31:3

  • No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.  For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers,  neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:37-39
  • And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28
  • Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken. Psalm 55:22
  • Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. Matthew 11:28-29
  • But all who listen to me will live in peace, untroubled by fear of harm. Proverbs 1:33

And lastly, He wants to spend time with you and you’re not to feel bad if you can’t find dedicated bible study time or time to attend church. Just snatch those five minutes in the bathroom or as your child is in gym club and He will cherish every one of those short stolen moments and will rejoice in refilling and renewing you.

Thank you for reading friend and bless you for your loving heart and faithful service.

From one Mum to another, be blessed. Mich x

How to Make the Most of Every Day and Stay Positive

{This is a collaborative post}

Looking after your mental health and staying positive are important if you want to keep from feeling the blues. Staying positive is easier said than done though. Some days it is just too hard to always have a smile on your face. With just a few simple techniques, you too can have a positive outlook on life and make the most of every day. 

Did you know that just by thinking good and happy thoughts, you can change your mood and perspective on certain situations? With a better view of life and your surroundings, you can increase your quality of life, gain more energy and recover quicker from illness. 

Look for the Good in Your Life 

This is something that takes practice. It has been shown that by identifying the good things you have in life, you start to become more grateful. Sure, you might be having a tough time lately, but there has to be at least one thing that you have gratitude for. It can be as small as that first perfectly brewed cup of coffee in the morning. Or maybe that beautiful sunset you got to experience on your drive home from work. 

When you get up in the morning, stand in front of your mirror and list just one thing you are happy about. Focus on the small things that give meaning to your existence. 

Get Fancy 

Just as thinking positive thoughts can have an improved impact on your mental health, so can looking good. It is the same concept as smiling when you are feeling low. Moving those facial muscles has a compounding effect on your mood. If you look good, oftentimes you can persuade your mind to feel great too. Put on your best work outfit and do your makeup and hair. If you have some spare cash to spoil yourself, get that Gucci handbag you have been drooling over. By looking your best, you will exude confidence without even trying. Check out the variety of this shop online at for some eye-catching clothes. 

Spend Time with the Right People 

Positivity breeds positivity. Just as a yawn is contagious, so is spending your time with positive people. Look around at those you spend your time with. Maybe someone is always talking about the bad things in their life, never looking at the good. Try to be around those who are in a good mood most of the time. Those are the people that can help boost your self-esteem and help you be more positive in general.

What to Look for When Purchasing Flower Bulbs?

Photo by Alla Melashtchenko at Pexels

{This is a collaborative post}

Do you know what to look for when you're buying new flowers? In this article, we discuss multiple tips for you to follow.

It's important to get the best flower bulbs possible when it's time to plant spring-flowering ones like daffodils and tulip bulbs. Most options will be available in just about all instances when you shop online or via a catalogue. However, you should only purchase the highest quality bulbs. 

1. Make sure to choose bulbs that can withstand being suckled on by animals.

Are you sick of seeing your tulips and crocuses chopped in half every spring? You should instead go out and get some flower bulbs that are resistant to animals, including alliums and Eranthis hyemalis.

2. Test out some shade-tolerant bulbs.

Your garden will probably become darker as time goes on, thanks to the growth of trees and bushes. Bulb plants that grow in partial shade include bluebells, several varieties of lilies, and others.

3. Plant some early-blooming bulbs.

Additional early-season color from smaller (often flowering) bulbs like winter aconite, snowdrops, and crocus may keep your garden in bloom for weeks before the calendar says it should. Moreover, experts suggest using these little plants to prolong the season.

4. Don't forget the three seasons.

Early, mid-season, and late planting are three of the main gardening aphorisms. Choose carefully among the various species and cultivars in the genus, not only picking for colour or size, but for bloom period, to produce a lengthy display of several types of blooming plants (such as tulips, lilacs, daylilies, daffodils, peonies, and more). This is especially true with light bulbs. If you plan ahead, you may enjoy tulips for about two months and the rest of the flowers for nearly as long or longer. Reputable stores offering tulip bulbs for sale organise available options in catalogues to make shopping easier.

The Best Ways to Find a Qualified Los Angeles HVAC Professional

{This is a collaborative post}

Do you experience recurring nightmares about inhaling poisonous gas, wasting money on regular repairs, and being in excruciating pain? That wouldn’t be the case in an ideal universe. When a brand-new heater fails so soon after purchase, it’s frustrating and costly.

If you invest in high-quality Los Angeles heating and air conditioning services from the start, you won’t have to second-guess your decision. Specialists find that some initial, low-cost HVAC contractor was keeping the homeowners waiting for days. A warm-up was never an option. If your furnace isn’t properly sized, it will keep breaking down and require maintenance.

You may be curious as to how well they worked

Effectiveness ought to be the first priority. Find out whether your vendor has any Energy Star gadgets by contacting them. The federal government’s Energy Star program conducts comprehensive efficiency evaluations of Los Angeles air conditioning repair systems.

Take specifics about their background in school and work experience

Given that it’s likely the priciest appliance in your house in Los Angeles, HVAC servicing should be left to trained professionals. Contractors in California who want to work in the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning sector must first get the appropriate license to do so. A company should be able to get the requisite levels of bonding and insurance, in addition to the required California license. Financial security is ensured in the case of a loss of life or property with homeowner’s insurance.

{This is a collaborative post}

Your baby's first year is a significant milestone, and you'll want to capture every moment. While there are many great options for DIY photography, hiring a professional photographer is the best way to ensure you get stunning photos of your little one. Here are a few reasons you should hire a pro for your baby's first year.

Capture all the Special Moments

If you're considering hiring a professional photographer to capture your baby's first year, you might wonder if it's worth the investment. First of all, babies grow and change so rapidly in their first year of life - it can be difficult to keep up with all the milestones. A professional photographer will know how to capture each stage, from newborn to crawling and walking milestones. They'll be able to provide you with a beautiful collection of images that you can look back on for years to come. 

Secondly, professional photographers have access to high-quality equipment and editing software. This means they can produce stunning images far superior to what most people can achieve with their smartphones.

Thirdly, a pro will know how to use natural lighting to create beautiful photos that you and your family will treasure for a lifetime. In addition, a professional baby photographer will have the experience and expertise to capture those special moments, such as a baby's first smile or first tooth. With their help, you can be sure that these memories will be captured perfectly. 

Finally, it's important to remember that these images will be treasured memories for your family. They'll be passed down from generation to generation and will serve as a reminder of this particular time in your lives. So hiring a professional photographer is really an investment in your family history.

Reasons To Get Away To A Peaceful, Rural Setting For A Week Or So

Photo by Dawid Zawiła on Unsplash

{This is a collaborative post}

In life, we all need to take a few breaks each year. It's good to be productive with our time, but we are not robots and we need to make sure that we have enough respite. It would be great if we were a being that could just work, earn money, and enjoy ourselves in doing so, but that's simply not the case. We need to make sure we leave enough room for recreation and relaxation.


There are so many ways we can spend our free time. Heading out on vacation is one of the best things a person can possibly do as you can be experiencing new situations and environments daily, and you are no longer putting pressure on yourself. Some people enjoy getting to a beach or a poolside, but getting away to a peaceful, rural setting for a week or so can really reset and recharge you. Here are a few specific reasons why it's such a powerful way to spend your time.

As The Title Suggests, It’s Very Blissful 


Being in a place that is much quieter than you're used to can be delightful, a real-time to reset. The human mind can only take so much and it needs to be able to relax as much as possible. Heading to a rural location can really do wonders for the mind, body, and soul. Whether you are there for the holiday season or just an impromptu break throughout the year, it will be extremely blissful.


There Is Ample Opportunity To See Lovely Sights 


Some of the sites around the world are amazing, and truly awe-inspiring. You will have heard of so many different ones in all kinds of famous locations. However, there are plenty of good-looking places in some not-very-well-known places too. Getting away from it all and seeing some amazing views in these areas can change your life. Whether you’re in hybrid campers or a purpose-built hotel, you’ll be able to view things you may never have seen before.

Give Your Tyres a Thorough Check-up – and Leave for Your Holiday in Safety

Image Credit: Pexels

{This is a collaborative post}

Going on holiday is exciting, especially if you are travelling for Christmas and/or New Year and often, it can be all too easy to want to just hop into your car and go. But rein in that excitement, just for a couple of hours and, before you even pack your suitcase, take a moment to give your car – and especially your tyres – a quick, but thorough check before you set off. After all, breaking down on your way to a Christmas getaway is not the restful change you have been looking forward to! Here are some things you can try at home.

Eyeball It

Look at your tyres as best you can. Use a bright torch that will light up the underside of your car, even on the brightest day, and then get up close and personal with your tyre surfaces! Use your eyes and fingertips to examine the rubber, looking for signs of weakness, damage or distortion: all signs that you might need to replace your tyres sooner rather than later. If you do spot anything untoward: cracks or missing chunks of rubber, dimples or bulges in the sidewall, or even the single black spot that can indicate the presence of a puncture, you can get yourself a new pair of winter tyres from Dartford Tyre Shop, Sidcup, and enjoy even safer driving than usual while temperatures are below 7°C.

Choosing A Family Car To Ensure That Everyone Is Comfortable

Image Credit: Pexels

{This is a collaborative post}

If you are going to be purchasing a new family car, there are certain things that you’re going to need to think about. One of these is the comfort of everyone in the vehicle, including yourself. But, do you know how to achieve this goal? Most people don’t, and that’s why we’ve written this article. Down below, we’re going to be taking a look at some of the ways that you can choose a family car in which everyone will be comfortable, so keep reading if you would like to find out more.

Enough Space

First, you’re going to need to make sure that you’ve got enough space in the vehicle. You want everyone to be able to sit comfortably, without feeling like they are sitting on top of someone else in the back. Consider how many people there are in your family, and then work out how many seats you need. 

There should be enough room for people to be able to sit comfortably and be able to stretch out their legs if needed. This is going to be especially important if you ever have to go on long drives somewhere, or if you are going to be heading out on a road trip.

Get Some Advice

If you’re not sure about what you should be looking for, then you can get some advice. If you go to a site like Edmunds, then you will see that you can get the advice that you need without much of a fuss! Helpful, professional, and above all else accurate, a site like this could really give you all the advice that you need when it comes to purchasing a car for the family.

Or, if you know someone who is particularly well-versed in this area, then you can ask them for their advice as well. Do your research, and get information from a range of sources in order to get the best car possible.

Test Drive

The final thing that we’re going to say is that you should be taking the car for a test. It’s not just everyone else that should be comfortable when you’re in the car, but you as well. Make sure that you can comfortably sit and drive the vehicle, or else there’s no use in purchasing it in the first place. If you’re not comfortable, then you’re not going to want to drive, and that makes the purchase completely pointless in the first place!

If any seller doesn’t let you test drive the car, then this should be a massive red flag, and you should move on to somewhere else.

We hope that you have found this article helpful, and now see some of the things that you should be doing when it comes to choosing a family car. You want to make sure that everyone is comfortable when they are riding in your vehicle, and if you make sure that you do everything on this list, then this will happen. We wish you the very best of luck, and hope that you manage to choose a car that everyone finds comfortable!

For kids, it can be especially exciting to experience the holidays for the first time. There are so many things you can do to make the season special for your little ones! In this blog post, we will discuss eight ideas that will help make this holiday season unforgettable for your kids!

Start a New Tradition

Traditions are such an important part of the holidays. They help to make the season feel unique and special. If you don't have any holiday traditions yet, now is the perfect time to start some! You could do something as simple as decorating gingerbread houses together or watching holiday movies as a family. Whatever you choose, make sure it's something your kids will enjoy and look forward to every year.

Get Them Involved in Gift Giving

One of the best parts of the Christmas holidays is giving gifts to loved ones. But sometimes, it can be hard to find the perfect present. Why not involve your kids in the gift-giving process? This way, they can help pick out presents for their grandparents, cousins, or friends. They'll feel so proud and excited to give a gift that they helped choose!

Make Some Holiday-Themed Crafts

Craft time is always a fun activity for kids. And during the holidays, there are so many festive crafts you can do! You could make decorations for the Christmas tree, gingerbread houses, or even design your own wrapping paper. There are endless possibilities! Not only will your kids have fun doing this activity, but they'll also be able to take pride in their finished products.

Go Ice Skating or Sledding

What better way to enjoy the winter weather than by going ice skating or sledding? These activities are sure to get your kids moving and laughing, and better still all the family can join together and have great fun. And they'll love spending time outdoors in the snow!

Bake Holiday Cookies Together

Baking cookies is a classic holiday activity. And it's even more fun when you do it with your kids! They'll love getting their hands dirty as they mix the ingredients and roll out the dough. You can get an assortment of cutters for them to enjoy and they'll be so excited to eat their finished products. It's a win-win!

Take Them Shopping for New Holiday Clothes

One of the best parts of the holidays is getting all dressed up in festive clothes. If your kids don't have any special holiday outfits yet, take them shopping! They'll love picking out a new outfit to wear to all of the holiday parties. And you can even get them matching outfits for the whole family! Make it a very special day out and book a hotel in the city to make it extra special. Aldgate is a great location for a hotel, because it's central and has great transport links.

Have a Holiday Movie Marathon

What better way to spend a cold winter day than snuggled up on the couch watching holiday movies? You could make it into a marathon and watch all of your kids' favorite Christmas movies. Or you could mix things up and include some holiday classics that they've never seen before. Either way, they're sure to have a blast, especially with some yummy festive treats to hand too!

Go Caroling Together

Caroling is such a fun and festive activity! And it's even more fun when you do it with your children. They'll love singing all of their favorite Christmas songs. And you might even get some neighbours to join in with the fun! You'll at least be offered an enjoyable mulled wine or festive cookie for your troubles.

The holiday season is a magical time of year. And there are so many ways to make it special for your kids. Try out some of these ideas and you're sure to create some lasting memories and have great fun in the process.

3 Interesting Christmas Gifts You Can Get Anyone

Photo by JESHOOTS.COM on Unsplash

{This is a collaborative post}

Christmas is a time to have fun and enjoy yourself. The same isn't often said about the weeks leading up to it. You have to get the decorations ready, plan out what you’re doing for the season, and much more, which can lead to a lot of stress.

Then there are the countless gifts you’ll have to get for people. Depending on how many you need to buy, this can be one of the more stressful parts of the season. You’ll not only need to worry about the cost but also what exactly you should buy people.

By focusing on a few Christmas gift ideas you can get anyone, you can make the task much easier for yourself. All three of the following options should be something your friends and family will all love.

1. Christmas Hamper

Christmas gift hampers can be one of the more interesting gifts you can get a loved one, as you don’t need to go for standard options with this. Instead, you can personalise them and include foods and drinks the recipient is sure to love.

The fact that these are so thoughtful is what makes them stand out, especially when you put a bit of work into them. Make sure to include what the recipient likes and what you think they’ll like when putting this together. You can go for a wide-ranging hamper with a lot of variety or a more specialist one such as cheese, sweets or even jams and chutneys.

2. Personalised Tea Towel

While a tea towel mightn’t be the first thing that comes to mind when you’re thinking of Christmas gifts you can get anyone, there are ways to make it more interesting. By personalising it for the person you’re getting it for, you can make it much more special.

Having an appealing design and personal message on the tea towel is an effective way of doing this. It lets you make something much more thoughtful while showing the recipient how much you care about them. Of course, it is also practical too!

3. Ornaments

Speaking of something personalised, your gift doesn’t need to be customised to a specific person. Instead, you could buy for a whole household. Family ornaments can be a great option for this.

While you could choose a classic Christmas ornament design for this, you could also go with something a bit broader. There are countless ornaments you could create, ranging from picture frames to something that hangs from the fireplace.

Christmas ornaments are great gifts to send by post as they are small and often can be enjoyed throughout the whole year.

So, what do you think? Might you go for one (or all) of these options this year to help make your Christmas gift-buying simpler? They’ll not only be gifts that are sure to be used, but the recipient should appreciate the thought and love them too.

Five Ideas for your Partner to Celebrate Retirement

{This is a collaborative post}

Retirement is a wonderful time to kick back, relax and enjoy the time deserved for a hard-working life. Whether retirement has been a long time coming or it’s something that has been a luxury to do earlier, there’s plenty of time now to revel in what life has to offer.

For that partner who is retiring or has recently retired, a celebratory gift is certainly needed. To commemorate the occasion in the best way, here are five gift ideas to celebrate such a milestone point in life.

Book that once-in-a-lifetime trip

Is there a bucket list trip that the person retiring has always wanted to go on? Well, now is that opportunity to do so. If it’s financially feasible that is! However, when it comes to once-in-a-lifetime opportunities, doing it now is likely the one and only time that’s perfect to do so.

Everyone’s bucket list trip is going to be different from the next. Whether it’s somewhere close by or across the other side of the world, book that trip to celebrate the occasion in style.

Get a timepiece as a symbolic gift

A great way to celebrate the occasion is a symbolic gift. When it comes to male retirement gifts, a watch is a present that will be appreciated by those who are regular wearers of this accessory. Not only is it a luxurious accessory that can be worn on all future dinners out during retirement, but it’s also symbolic of the time that’s now available.

A new chapter of a person’s life deserves a beautiful timepiece. 

A grazing platter 

Got a partner who loves to eat? A grazing platter is music to the ears of those who like to fill their stomachs with delicious food. Grazing platters have become particularly popular in recent years and are often used for events and birthdays, so why not a retirement too?

Consider it as a posh buffet for two, or get a bigger platter to celebrate with family and friends.

Planning a Baptism or Christening for your Little One

{This is a collaborative post}

Are you planning a baptism or christening for your little one? If so, congratulations! This is a joyous occasion, and there are many things to consider when planning it. In this post, we will discuss some of the basics you will need to think about. Let us get started!  


1. Selecting the Right Outfit for Your Child 

Christening outfits for boys and girls require some planning ahead. The first thing to consider is that christening outfits worn by infants and small children need to be comfortable. Try to find a dress or suit made from a material that allows air to circulate freely, like cotton or linen. Your child should be able to move about comfortably in it. Second, alterations are typically made to christening and baptismal robes as they are passed down through generations. A classic silhouette is safe to invest in at any time. Third, the customary colour for a baptism or christening is white, but if you want to stand out, you can wear a pastel blue suit or pink gown instead. Check with your church leaders on any specific rules for your upcoming ceremony. Pick something that will be meaningful to both you and your child for many years to come. 


2. Choosing When to Have Your Baptism   

Baptisms and christenings are milestones in your child's life. You and your family will need to pick when you have the baptism ceremony. Spring and summer are great for baptisms because of the pleasant temperature and the options for outdoor christening celebrations with families and friends. Unless there are scheduling issues, any time can be baptism season.  

 3. Selecting a Baptism Location   

Choosing a venue for your baby's christening might be tricky. You want the day to be perfect. You must think about who you are going to invite to the ceremony and whether you will be holding a reception afterwards. Traditionally, parents choose to have the christening ceremony at their local or family church, with a reception held nearby for invited guests. If you are expecting a huge crowd, you will need a venue that can accommodate everyone. And don’t forget to factor in the expense of the venue. Christenings can be pricey, so select a location that meets your budget. Once you have examined all these things, you should be able to find the appropriate setting for your baby's christening.
