For we are not proclaiming ourselves but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus's sake. For God who said "let light shine or of darkness," has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of God's glory in the face of Jesus Christ. 2 Corinthians 4:5-6
I'm reading through Women of the Word and today I was struck again by how many times I try to make the Bible about myself. I act like the Bible exists to comfort me or take away my insecurities or give me answers when really I should be looking to it to learn how to love God better. •
Studying scripture is less about finding answers to my problems and more about learning how to become the person God wants me to be.
Take some time to #openyourbible with me today and let God teach you about his glory.

Ahhhh Sundays. Just breathing in all the delicious springtime LA vibes over here. Dreaming up plans for the day... which really just means where, what and how much I will be eating + drinking for the day🤷♀️😂. What’s in store for your Sunday??

Sometimes you just have to stop and REST. The past few months have been filled with lots of hustle but not enough down time. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Taking a breather today and reminding myself it’s okay to stay in sweatpants and chill the heck out. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Sunday goals: 👉🏻plan my week and block out time for rest
👉🏻resist the donuts sitting on my kitchen counter 🤣

I hope your Sunday is blissful!
Hope you’ve all had a great Sunday? We’ve been swimming and I went on the flumes and everything. Although mostly I just sat in the jacuzzi while the boys played! Today’s outfit is a simple little linen skirt by @marksandspencer (£17:50) and a top by @primark (£12). I bought the top while panic buying a new swimming costume (where do they vanish to?!). It’s actually a short dress/beach cover up - but I love it tucked in and styled as a blouse 👌☀️💕
Gouache and watercolor florals inspired by @thepinkpagoda.
Now we’re heading to church, the grocery store and then turning on the Warriors game. I won’t watch but I’ll check the score every so often ;) Have a wonderful Sunday! #amandagomesdesign#100agillustrations#flowerpainting
Craziest friendship story - these two were seated a few tables down from us at Little Dom’s back in August. Overheard Kev and I talking about wanting to move to LA in September, but how difficult the whole process was - especially trying to land a decent apartment in a good hood, all while still living in Chicago. Turns out @stephaniekiman’s lease was up end of September too. She and @annalass put their eavesdropping to work, interrupted our bacon and eggs with the news, and the rest is history! Not only did we land a great little spot, but we made some damn cool friends too. Bottomless prickly pears for everyone! 🌸 #losfeliz#abmlifeisbeautiful#datmargaritalife
Happy EARTH 🌏 DAY! Feeling especially grateful for the beautiful land I live on & all the amazing places around us and so close by 🙏🏼
Finding happiness amongst the flowers, where I’m meant to be

After a helicopter tour over Monte Carlo, an insanely expensive pizza lunch and an afternoon watching the ships sipping coffee. I’m ready to bid Monaco adieu. That is, of course, unless James Bond wants to show up and we can take a drive around in his Aston Martin. If so, I’m here until 11pm James.
