HGTV: Welcome To The Obsession

HGTV: Welcome To The Obsession

You mean you aren't actually an interior designer?

Yeah, yeah, yeah; I get it. Home and Garden TV, better known as HGTV, is a popular channel among older-aged generations. I got hooked on it years ago and I'll never stop loving it. I mean, who doesn't love watching happy couples get their dream homes? Isn't that what we all want? We watch, we love, and we wish more than anything that we could have our homes transformed by such iconic people. What isn't there to love about them? From "Fixer-Upper" to "House Hunters" to design challenges, this channel can certainly be for anyone and everyone. To outline my borderline obsession, and yours also (because, let's face it, you're obsessed too), here is a list of HGTV-like things that you're sure to relate to.


1. Chip and Joanna Gaines

Need I say more? They are TV's dream couple. They make houses beautiful. They are overall adorable.


2. Please don't ask me which twin is more attractive

Oh, my. Drew and Jonathan Scott. Commonly known as the Property Brothers. They're adorable and they make such a great team.


3. How in the heck do these young couples have such a large budget?

24-year-old recently married couples with a budget of $900,000? That's definitely a train I want to hop on!


4. Another episode of "House Hunters"?

Whenever one of the popular shows isn't on, there's always "House Hunters". It's a show we all love to hate, but at the same time we wish we could pick between three great houses and end up happy.


5. But really, is "Love It or List It" scripted?

Don't get me wrong, this is a great show. Either way, the couples are moving into an amazing house or their current house is being made amazing. It can't just be me that thinks the show is scripted in some way...

*Research shows that it is not, in fact, scripted. However, my suspicions are still present.

Overall, the Home and Garden Television Network is an amazing channel. It used to be overlooked by the younger generations, but I feel like it's now making a serious comeback. Maybe someday our dreams will come true and we will get the house of our imaginations.

But until then, keep hoping, and keep watching HGTV.

We all have those days where we let the negative thoughts that we're "not good enough," "not pretty enough" or "not smart enough" invade our minds. It's easy to lose hope in these situations and to feel like it would be easier to just give up. However, the Bible reminds us that these things that we tell ourselves are not true and it gives us the affirmations that we need. Let these verses give you the power and motivation that you're lacking.

1. Proverbs 31:25

"She is clothed with strength and dignity and she laughs without fear of the future."

2. Psalm 46:5

"God is within her, she will not fall."

3. Luke 1:45

"Blessed is she who believed that the Lord would fulfill His promises to her."

4. Proverbs 31:17

"She is energetic and strong, a hard worker."

5. Psalm 28:7

"The Lord is my strength and my shield."

6. Proverbs 11:16

"A gracious woman gains respect, but ruthless men gain only wealth."

7. Joshua 1:9

"Be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go."

8. Proverbs 31:30

"Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last; but a woman who fears the Lord will be greatly praised."

9. 1 Corinthians 15:10

"By the grace of God, I am what I am."

10. Proverbs 31:26

"When she speaks, her words are wise, and she gives instructions with kindness."

11. Psalm 139:14

"I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made."

12. 1 Peter 3:3-4

"Don't be concerned about the outward beauty of fancy hairstyles, expensive jewelry, or beautiful clothes. You should clothe yourselves instead with the beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is so precious to God."

13. Colossians 2:10

"And in Christ you have been brought to fullness."

14. 2 Timothy 1:7

"For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline."

15. Jeremiah 29:11

"'For I know the plans I have for you,' says the Lord. 'They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.'"

16. Exodus 14:14

"The Lord himself will fight for you. Just stay calm."

17. Song of Songs 4:7

"You are altogether beautiful, my darling, beautiful in every way."

Next time you're feeling discouraged or weak, come back to these verses and use them to give you the strength and power that you need to conquer your battles.

It's been a long, long time.

This past week, the Jonas Brothers released a song and music video starring their wives (and in Joe's case, fiancee), completely shocking fans given the fact that there was pretty much no prior warning. As rumors are running rampant about their getting back together and a possible tour, now seems like a good time to reflect on their past. Specifically, my favorite songs that they've written. And if the rumors are true...I hope to find new favorites soon.

1. "Inseparable"

2. "Australia"

3. "Hold On"

4. "Shelf"

5. "Can't Have You"

6. "Turn Right"

7. "SOS"

8. "Sorry"

9. "Black Keys"

10. "First Time"

11. "Hey Baby"

12. "Paranoid"
