Do you have a high school or college graduate this year?
This year I am graduating my fourth child and my second son. I feel like my time with him went by so fast and now he has quickly grown into a young man. We have been busy getting him enrolled in college, and he just met with a Marine recruiter a few weeks ago to learn more about the reserves. We are finishing up his last days of school which is somewhat bitter sweet because while I am so happy that he is moving on the next phase, my momma's heart will dearly miss him! He has been working out a ton because he will be doing some football this year. He recently just bought a new car and will be going from working part-time to full time in the summer. He is a busy young man!
We are planning out his graduation party and and I have been pulling together all the party supplies and other odd and ends. I have also had gifts on the mind so I thought that while I was sifting through some ideas that I would share some with you in case you had a grad that needed a gift or two as well!
Here is the list:
A Bible - every grad needs the light, wisdom, and counsel of the Word of God!
I recently got this one for my son which is great and has the tabs and everything. You can find some for ladies here and I also found this nice Graduation gift Bible pack.

These make great gifts because they get things they need for their new college dorm room or anything else they would need for their bright new future. If they are going away some food or restaurant gift cards would also come in handy.
