It’s been one of those days where some deep heart issues come up and you realize you finally have to do something about it. And it’s not easy, and it’s confusing, and you have no idea what to do about it other than pray. 🙏🏼 Sighh. 
I think one of the side effects I wasn’t expecting (but should have known) when I woke up early for that week of prayer, was that God was going to reveal some big things in my own life that I needed to work on. It’s great to pray about finances, and jobs and all those things in between. Those are all good things to give over to God. But I’m realizing I can do that for days but if I’m not striving to be more like Christ, if my heart isn’t right, I have bitterness or anger, then no amount of money or job security, or fill in your blank is ever going to mean anything. It’s pretty humbling. So that’s where I’m at on this Thursday ❤️ real talk from the Growth Roots journal. 🙂 Praying for peace, wisdom, and guidance on my journey to becoming more like Him.

Isn’t it a comfort to know that even in our uneventful, mundane, and unremarkable days God is still at work in every detail of our life. Each day is filled with purpose and is part of His plan. God never wastes a day, and no matter what that day may hold we are called to be thankful for it because it was given to us by a good God who works all things together for our good! So today, I’m thankful that unremarkable days turn into remarkable GOOD! •
Today is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it! Psalms 118:24

How can you keep your faith in God (and GROW) while at college or university? ⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1. Be intentional. ⠀
We are all busy, and I've got to tell you ladies, that often life just gets busier (even after college and university). ⠀
There is no substitute for your one-on-one time with God - it is the most important thing! Nurturing your relationship with God takes time and it takes intentionality (it's not going to happen by accident!). - Wake up 30 minutes earlier to study the bible and spend time in worship.⠀
- Listen to the audio bible or podcasts on your way to class or while you're cleaning or tidying! I'm loving Lisa Bevere's "I am Adamant" podcast at the moment. ⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2. Create a habit! ⠀
Set a regular time for your personal bible study and for when you listen to podcasts or do your devotions. This will help you create a habit that, as you grow, you will see the fruit of later on in life. ⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3. Connect in community⠀
Find a church in your local area to go to. It can be awkward at first but hang in there, it'll get better. ⠀
- Be consistent. Attend regularly and get to know people so they become familiar faces! Why not ask someone out to coffee to get to know them better?⠀
- Join a regular bible study or connect group. These kinds of groups help you grow in your relationship with God, help you grow in great friendships, and help you stay accountable and focused amidst all of the distractions of college/uni life. ⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Comment and let me know if this helps you, and share any tips you have for other ladies who are going through college or university.⠀

The other day at Aya and Sal’s wedding. 💕

Ben and I are so grateful and blessed to play such a special part in our couple’s lives.
.

We have captured Aya and Sal’s proposal, when Sal sneakily hired Ben and I to capture the whole thing.

Engagement photos where got beautiful pictures of them stunting in the San Juan Mission.
.

And just recently then their wedding in Redondo Beach!
.

Thank you @aya_salti and Sal hope your enjoying your honeymoon in Hawaii. 😘

Love this girl and her heart. Her joy and ability to brighten a room with her smile 😁 and willingness to truly LIVE life fully.
.
Sometimes I think "we are so different", she is so much like her Daddy. Living in the moment, looking to make others laugh and always up for an adventure! But then there are these moments, these sporty moments that I see glimpses of me. I LOVED and still love sports 🏀⛹ This sporty girl of mine... she always gives a 110% in everything she does. She is determined and coachable. Then there is HER, her very own unique blend that God gave her ❤ She is a thinker, looking to learn and understand. She's creative and fun and seeks deep connection and loves FULLY 💞
.
Watching this precious daughter of mine reminds me how God has made each one of us unique. We were not meant to FIT into this world 🌍 The struggles we often have? The loneliness we feel? The desire to be loved? They are only filled by HIM. We were meant to walk with HIM and in HIS grace and love 🕇💜
.
We were NOT meant to FIT IN in this world but to SHINE bright 🌟for Him. So if you are struggling Sister with your circumstances, with your relationships, with your LIFE. Look to HIM, the one who CREATED YOU. The ONE who knows YOUR NAME and LOVES you.
.
I pray that this scripture He laid upon my heart today during my quiet time encourages just ONE lady today that YOU ARE NOT ALONE. You are a PRECIOUS daughter to the KING.  Don't just take my word for it. Isaiah 43:1 confirms it "But now thus says the Lord, he who created you, O Jacob, he who formed you, O Israel: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine." 😘

Today I read a prayer written by Susie Larson that was just so beautiful I HAD to share it here.
🙏
"Jesus, You are the King of Kings and the Perfect Shepherd. You’re my Savior and my Friend. You will see my story to its beautiful end. Thank you for coming to earth, for living a sinless life, for always obeying the Father, and for dying my death on the Cross. I am forever grateful and profoundly changed because of who You are and because of what You’ve done. Forgive me for allowing myself to stress about the non-essentials. You are God-Most-High and You are with us. I have more than I could ever need because I have You. I’m deeply loved and profoundly blessed. Thank You, Lord. I love You back. Amen"- Susie Larson @deeperlifeinchrist

Life isn’t made up of big moments; it’s made up of small ones that are scrambled together to create a beautiful mosaic... it is in these small moments that the Gospel can be preached—in and through all we do. The way we ask for help, the way we treat the people we are serving, the way we talk about others when they are not in the room, how we react when we are hurt, and even the way we prioritize. We are Gods representatives on earth, may our small moments preach Jesus’ Gospel well...

Las mujeres más fuertes son las que se respetan unas a otras. ♥️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
El reto consiste en reflexionar en esta simple pregunta: ¿Y si nos respetamos en lugar de juzgarnos?

No todo entre mujeres es una competencia, y cuando nos detenemos a apreciar a esas chicas que tenemos al lado por todo lo que son, cosas increíbles pasan. Todas vivimos los mismos struggles, y necesitamos de otras mujeres para hacer la vida más llevadera, porque nos entendemos. Nos hacemos más fuertes. Nos apoyamos. Nos enseñamos tanto como aprendemos unas de otras. ¡Dejémonos de varas y celebrémosnos entre todas! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Gracias a las lindas de @miobysharon y @retroandsugar que me invitaron a unirme a esta campaña de #mujeresfuertes. Unite a esta campaña subiendo una foto e invitá a otras mujeres a reflexionar en esta pregunta.

Sería chivísima que se unieran @revistabehappy @powerhouse.work @sweetsavage_cr @almaquehablacr @jojlushka @eka_mora @anamoracr @closethispano @innerteacherblog

A very eye-opening paragraph about #sexualsins from the book, "Destroying The Spirit of Rejection" by John Eckhardt.

Feed your mind with truth instead of lies. Give yourself more grace than criticism and just freakin be the amazing person you were created you to be. Life will be so much more joyfully when we see ourselves as the Lord does. •

What are practical ways that you disciple your kids each week? One easy way is to incorporate these Scripture cards into your weekly routine! My kids have enjoyed turning the verses into songs (an idea from @kate_kubler) because it makes it so much easier to memorize! 📷 @janettmarieee

Lately, God has been pressing my heart with becoming more bold for Him. It’s requiring that I die a bit more to comfort, familiar, and common. It’s requiring that I place my foot on the unstable surface of water and walk. It’s requiring that I shut out the groans and discomfort of my flesh and build the muscles of my spirit. Growing in Christ isn’t easy and it definitely isn’t always comfortable. But answer this- what worth having is? So many of us ask God to “bless me, bless me” or beg God to “heal me, hear me, help me” or blame Him for something...but we don’t want to give Him what He asks for, our heart. We have to make up our minds that we will either be completely in or completely out with Him. It’s our choice because He doesn’t force us. Choose well, sis.💕
Revelation 3:16, 20.

Your value is not based on what others speak of you, but on who God says you are. 
God made you because you matter. You were made with a purpose. 
Before you were even born God chose you for a special purpose (Jeremiah 1:5). Our identity becomes shaken when we place it in the hands of imperfect people. But when our identity is in the hands of a loving and perfect God, nothing can move us. 
No one can place a value on you because God has already placed a value on you. New blog "You Are Valued By God” bit.ly/2DU1i7M (Link in bio!)

Sometimes, a battle is the answer.  In 1 Samuel 7, the people of Israel gathered to pray and fast for deliverance from the Philistines. As they prayed, guess who came at them with the full might of the entire military? The Philistines.

Talk about a faith shattering event. When the very thing you asked God to rescue you from comes barreling at you with full force. When you asked for a new job but He asked you to stay where you are. When you asked for a husband and He gave you an extended single season. When you asked for freedom from your addiction, and the addiction came at you stronger than ever before. When you prayed for guidance and there was only silence in response. When you expected healing, but the diagnosis only got worse.

Our God isn’t in the business of magically making our problems, suffering and weaknesses go away. He is a God that can take you through🔥 without harming a hair on your head, leaving you with a stronger faith and all the glory to Him. He uses the battles and the valleys to refine, strengthen and free us from the things that hold us back from fully living for Him.

Step into the battle with courage (Eph. 6:12-13). Fast. Pray. Because the victory belongs to Him, and His answer and His timing will be infinitely more magnificent than anything you can imagine! I know how the story ends: Jesus wins. Always.

Our only point of comparison is ourselves, but even in that, give grace. This life isn’t meant for perfection, but growth and joy and hope. 🌿

All three of us took a long shower and got minimally ready for a pizza and coffee date with Gigi. (Meaning no gel, no diffusing time) Simple and sweet evening just us girls as the men in our family are gone for the weekend.

I am so thankful for this husband of mine. What a joy it is to get to celebrate another year of LIFE with him! 🎉🙌🏼 Happy birthday hubs! 🎂🎊

I'm a work *ahem* Ginger in progress... I don't have it all figured out yet and probably never will. But I've learned a thing or two about my #perfectionist tendencies and what they've cost me along the way. I'm kicking off my Confessions of a #RecoveringPerfectionist  blog series with a good one: My personal How to Embrace Imperfection Daily Checklist. 👆 Link in Profile 👆 I'm writing for myself here, mainly. I believe we teach what we need to learn. I hope this shines a light for any of my sisters out there who are struggling to feel like they are enough. #YouAreEnough. This will help you check yourself and remember that.

Life is messy — 
you’ll get hurt,
and you’ll hurt others too along the way.
•
I was reading John 13 and I wept.
Started off with verse 6, where Simon Peter asked Jesus why in the world would He wash his feet.
Jesus answered him by saying that what He is doing at that time, no one including Simon Peter would understand. But in time, he will.
I carried on reading until verse 15.. where my heart skipped a beat – ‘For I have given you an example, that you also should do just as I have done to you.’ 🔥
•
Jesus knew that Simon Peter was the one who will turn his back on Him.
He knew it well, Simon Peter was not the loyal one.
Jesus was sure that Simon Peter would betray Him in the end.
And yet,
He still washed his feet in all humility, with the purest heart.
•
I feel that God wants us to forgive and make peace with those who have and will hurt us up to THAT extent.
To the point where our ego is overruled by His love,
where our hurt is pushed down so that His peace can overflow.
Jesus showed us that it is possible to have that kind of response towards betrayal and hurt,
I believe we are also equipped with the strength, peace, power and love to do the same to those who hurt us.
•
Blessings! ✨

Jesus showed us that it is possible to have that kind of response towards betrayal and hurt, I believe we are also equipped with the strength, peace, power and love to do the same to those who hurt us. • Blessings! ✨

God is more interested in your growth than your comfort. Like any good father, God allows us to go through difficulties as a discipline to strengthen us. 
Hebrews 12:7 says, “Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as his children. For what children are not disciplined by their father?”
If you had a child, would you want them to skip the process of studying and just see them get an A? Of course not. You would want your kids to learn through the process and earn the A.
Like any good parent, God too wants us to go through hardships to grow and learn. God doesn’t want us to skip the trials and tests of life and miss out on the opportunity to gain wisdom and understanding. He wants us to go through the process and come out stronger and victorious.
“No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.” (Hebrews 12:11) 
Will you trust God and His process?
We can enjoy the process when we know it’s for our good and our own maturing. New blog by @gabytriyono “Hardships Are Necessary” bit.ly/2Hs1amy (Link in bio!)

“There are going to be days when singleness is fun, maybe you would prefer it, and you see it truly as a gift. Then there are going to be days when you sob in a quiet place alone because you feel left out, lonely, and unwanted. I know that wasn’t just me! I would sometimes get mad at God(not rightfully so)but I was honest with Him. I was mad that it was taking so long, I was mad no one was pursuing me, I was mad other girls were getting pursued. When I got real with myself, and with God, He taught me a lot about myself, Himself, and singleness. He taught me to be strong, He tested my faith, He reminded me of His faithfulness, and He taught me to find my identity in Him.” - @hillarymichelleblog. CAN I GET AN AMEN?!

Where would we be without the grace of God? We are so undeserving, but He loves us that much!

I know he’s little but every single night i look him straight in the eye and say “I had the very best day with you. I loved every minute.” And i mean it. What a privilege it is to ride the waves of highs and lows with my little buddy, who once was only a dream deep in my heart. What an honor to be the one he holds hands with, asks for in the morning and looks to for comfort when the day doesn’t go as planned. He’s a sweet, sweet gift I’ve been given. And i won’t waste it on complaints of exhaustion or distress. Instead, I’ll get muddy. I’ll get snot stains and grass stains and forehead wrinkles and everything else in the entire world to be by his side until the moment he’s grown and says “bye mama! you taught me well and I’m off to conquer this world.”

If you know me personally, you know that I am probably the most impatient person in the world. Okay, so maybe not the most impatient person in the entire world, but sometimes I feel pretty close. I am so impatient that I have found myself, on numerous occasions, taking matters into my own hands rather than just trusting God. That's probably why I identify so much with Sarah, formally known as Sarai. You see, God promised Sarah's husband, Abraham, that his descendants would be as many as the stars in the sky. However, this was a pretty big promise since Sarah was way past the age of bearing children. I don't know if she just got tired of waiting or if she thought this promise was ridiculous, but ultimately she did something that we all do--she attempted to fulfill God's promise HER way. She talked Abraham into marrying her maid, Hagar, and he eventually got this woman pregnant with Ishmael. Yet, as we all know, Ishmael wasn't the son that God promised Abraham, and no matter how much we might feel bad for Ishmael, it wasn't supposed to be like that. Sarah's decision to take matters into her own hands caused her and those affected by such a decision to become bitter and miserable (Genesis 16:5-6). It's funny how it's been thousands of years since Sarah made this mistake and yet we still try to do the same thing. Because we are too impatient to wait on God's timing, we tend to try to take control. We take steps outside of God's will and try to push away our boundaries. However, in the end, we are left unfulfilled and miserable, much like Sarah. Friend, God's promises are sure and true. He doesn't make promises that He won't keep, but it's so very important to know and remember that His timing is perfect, not ours. His thoughts are higher than our thoughts and His ways are higher than our ways. Stop trying to control everything and just allow God to take it out of your hands. (Ps. "God helps those who help themselves" is nowhere to be found in the Bible, ya'll)

This past Sunday, I went to a @travelinggood meetup only knowing one person. Ended up making a handful of new friends, learned about some wonderful local nonprofits and organizations doing amazing things in Chicago as well as just downright amazing humans.
.
To The Traveling Good peeps, @bc_serna, @perrygrone, @chrisgraham110, @alexradelich, @ansaamna, and anyone else not present, you guys rock. Simple as that. I love the heart behind this tour. I love the passion you have for highlighting and celebrating people through creative storytelling and personable acts of kindness. The world becomes an even better place when we take a risk and love first. It's such a great time to be alive, knowing there are people out here spreading love and servanthood the way you guys are. You are catalysts for change. You are purveyors if purpose.
.
I walked away from this night encouraged by our youth, blessed by our elders, and incredibly inspired by my peers. The conversation was real, authentic, vulnerable, and fun. And there I stood, in the presence of world changers.
.
We all have a purpose. We are all worth getting to know. We are all worth celebrating. Sometimes all it takes is a brave decision to let yourself be seen.

Does anyone else have a song that immediately just melts all your troubles away? I’m fully aware that greater by mercyme has been out for literally years, but I actually just discovered not too long ago on the radio during one of our daily drives down piiholo road. I distinctly remember Paul flipping through the stations, and all of a sudden I said, “wait what was that? go back, go back.” Paul rolled his eyes and said something like, “of course you would like this.” I said “what does that mean?” “It’s just like everything else you like.” ✨

Flash forwards months later and I’m googling trying to remember the lyrics to “that one song that I really like on the radio..” Eventually I found it & added it to my spotify and moved on. ✨

Flash forward even more months forward, Paul had been interviewing all over the state and I was going with to get a feel for any potential cities we may be moving to. Normally he’d just drop me at coffee shop during the interview. Well this time, Paul has an interview with a company that was literally in the middle of nowhere, just farm fields. I figured, no big deal I’ll just sit in the car and wait. It’s fine. Well, almost 3 hours later in the dead of winter with the car running for heat and no cell service, he finished the interview. Let’s just say for the record that every other interview has lasted 40 minutes, tops. I sat in the car that day for a really long time, just praying that he’d get the job. It was close to Eau Claire, a place we knew well. It was the perfect driving distance from home. I listened to the music that I had downloaded on my phone on repeat because.. no cell service. I rediscovered Greater that day. I listened to that song over and over and over again. Learning the words, thinking about the meaning, crying because I didn’t know what was going to happen. Every single time I hear this song, it brings me so much joy and happiness. & I can totally rock the lyrics in a sing along now. ✨

Oh, and he got that job. 🙏🏼

When I think of love and obedience, my 4 boys immediately spring to mind. My heart bursts with love for them but I also ask obedience from them. Obedience so the household runs smoothly, obedience so there is relational harmony within the family, so that they can reach their potential that I see in them and do so safely with self discipline and determination.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And in return their obedience is a mark of love of our family. Love is a verb - an action not a feeling.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Jesus promises us He is with us and asks the same from us. “If you love me you will keep my commands.” John 14:15
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Obedience is not about living in a self righteous religious way, it is about living in relationship.

For all my life I’ve been a believer. But the last few years I’ve studied more and more. In the past 14 months, I have learned and grown and figured out the best way for me to study. And I still just want to learn more. To consume more. 
So, I did a thing. With some encouragement from the holy Spirit and my people, I signed up to learn deeper. Nothing major, not looking for a degree now. 
This girl is into her second theology class! Saying this/typing this is pretty scary. Don’t know why. But this is life. 
Always learning! .

Bottles of Tears was birthed out of the many hours of my own tears. Years later, I am just now realizing and am starting to grasp how much God loves me...just the way I am. Let's keep fighting! God hasn't given up on us!! 💙

This morning I woke up a 4:45. I sat in the dark and let myself slowly come to life as the coffee brewed. Once the coffee was done, I switched on a light and started my morning meditation. I promised myself that during these 45 minutes in the morning, there would be no homework. Only things that will help me be a gentler, kinder person throughout the day. I hope to add in books that help me to grow, and time to go over the day’s plans. But for now, this was a really amazing start to my day. | 10/10 recommend waking up 15 minutes earlier to take care of you.

Here's your reminder that your reality is based off of your perception, as is everyone else's, meaning it is possible for two people to have opposing views and be right simultaneously.
-
Obviously some issues are black and white, but lots more exist on a spectrum of gray. Including how to parent, marriage, and even how to live a Christian life.
-
This is a hard lesson I'm learning, because being right is my thing. But I'm realizing that God has called me to be so much more than right. He's called me to be loving, compassionate, humble, gracious, kind, merciful, patient, self-controlled, and peaceful, most of which I am NOT when I'm too concerned with showing others that I'm right.
-
Letting go of this has been hard, but it's also been liberating! It is no longer my burden to convince people of my side - I'm now able to actively listen and learn more. I still struggle, of course, but it has been life changing.
-
If you're struggling with this as well, I'm praying that God can open your eyes to the fact that different isn't necessarily wrong.

One of my favourite hymns is called "Standing on the Promises":
.
Standing on the promises of Christ my King,
Through eternal ages let His praises ring,
Glory in the highest, I will shout and sing,
Standing on the promises of God
.
Standing, standing,
Standing on the promises of God my Savior;
Standing, standing,
I’m standing on the promises of God.
.
Standing on the promises that cannot fail,
When the howling storms of doubt and fear assail,
By the living Word of God I shall prevail,
Standing on the promises of God
.
Standing on the promises I now can see
Perfect, present cleansing in the blood for me;
Standing in the liberty where Christ makes free,
Standing on the promises of God.
.
Standing on the promises of Christ the Lord,
Bound to Him eternally by love’s strong cord,
Overcoming daily with the Spirit’s sword,
Standing on the promises of God.
.
Standing on the promises I shall not fall,
List’ning every moment to the Spirit’s call.
Resting in my Savior as my All in all,
Standing on the promises of God.
.
.
Are you standing on the promises of God today?

Standing on the promises I now can see Perfect, present cleansing in the blood for me; Standing in the liberty where Christ makes free, Standing on the promises of God. . Standing on the promises of Christ the Lord, Bound to Him eternally by love’s strong cord, Overcoming daily with the Spirit’s sword, Standing on the promises of God. . Standing on the promises I shall not fall, List’ning every moment to the Spirit’s call. Resting in my Savior as my All in all, Standing on the promises of God. . . Are you standing on the promises of God today? .
End of 1st 🤰🏼 ~ End of 4th 🤰🏼
I’d say Eric and I both did a bit better in terms of our health & fitness this time around as compared to that first “newlywed” year 🙃😆 I started this pregnancy with a plan to be “that girl” who ROCKED the healthiest pregnancy YET ... I wanted to workout til the day I delivered ... I wanted to stick to the clean meal plan MOST of the time ... and I wanted to have LESS WEIGHT to have to work off after baby
...
I’m not that girl who walks out of the delivery room in my jeans and not even the girl who loses the weight with breastfeeding ... I HAVE to have a plan and follow it and I’m so THANKFUL that although I wasn’t “that girl” who had the picture perfect “fit” pregnancy, I DID go into it at my fittest and those 30+ pounds LESS has translated into 30+ pounds LESS in this 4th pregnancy photo compared to the 1st pregnancy photo. 
My plan WILL WORK for you too ... I can’t exactly start executing my 30 minute workouts quite yet and have been told by my doc to WAIT at least 4 weeks after she’s born to start up again BUT you don’t have to wait for me 😜

I’ve got an online challenge starting MONDAY and I will coach you thru my tried & true plan to get you to your ultimate goal, even if you’ve never accomplished that before 😘

And as for 4 weeks after she’s born ... guaranteed I will be back to it and I KNOW it will feel GREAT 🙌🏻 Let me know if you’re ready to start YOUR journey... I’m here for you 💁🏼‍♀️ .

April 26, 2018  Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. ❤️ I’ve heard this verse in many versions, many times but today... Today, I’m blown away by it.  It has been a verse that I skimmed over in familiarity but without understanding.  Oh how many times I’ve given up hope.  Faith is confidence in what we hope for.  Faith is confidence and assurance.  Yep, this is something I need to rest in for a long time.  Wow. 😍#letterforthelord #createdtoday #30daysofbiblelettering #illustratedfaith #illustratedfaithcommunity #illustratedfaith2018 #illuminatedfaith #scripture #scriptureart #documentedfaith #documentedfaith2018 #everyday #journaling #journalingbible #journalingbiblecommunity #shereadstruth #sheletterstruth #bible #bibleverse #biblejournaling #biblejournal #bibleartjournalingcommunity #biblejournalingcommunity #bibleartjournaling #bibleartjournal #bibleartwork

Packing for a little mini vacation this weekend!⠀
⠀
With my hubby in grad school, vacations really don't happen for us. Needless to say, I'm excited to get away for a bit!⠀
⠀
Who has been to Ashville, NC? Any recommendations for places to visit and places to eat?

yep, it’s one of those days. You know, the days where you suppress all that’s happening your world, watch TV, then end up on your knees as the pressure truly hits?
It’s in those moments of absolute vulnerability that we allow the Lord to come in. He needs your vulnerability. He needs you to remove the blanket of insecurity that Satan covers you with. It doesn’t matter your physical stance so long as your heart is wide open. Our Heavenly Father loves to hear our struggles. He watches us go through them, patiently awaiting us to surrender to Him. Hand over the hurts. Lay down the stresses. Throw out the insecurities. Let that weight leave your beautiful heart through the brave vulnerability of a consecration prayer. He’s waiting.

Waiting. Ah, it’s so hard. But as Brooke points out this week, waiting is truly a time to “commune with God and tether your soul to Him.” Thank you Brooke @godlovesallofme for sharing your heart with us!! .

When I first studied the book of Ecclesiastes, I remember it feeling like a pretty depressing book. I thought the main message was basically everything in life is “futile and chasing after wind.”
It didn’t feel very comforting, like what’s the point then?
This time around, about 2 years later, I have a whole new perspective. I felt more freedom knowing I don’t have to chase after worldly things that don’t bring fulfillment. I should instead, “eat, drink, and be merry.” Seek fulfillment and joy in the life God has given me instead of my bank account, reputation, or career.
It’s crazy how much 2 years can change your whole outlook on a certain book or idea.
Have you guys ever read Ecclesiastes? What was your first impression?

The horizon is bright. Our futures our bright with Jesus. Just trust God, with everything. He has planned every second of our lives and his sovereignty will never cease. Thank you, Lord, because you have everything under control. I trust you, Jesus. Have your way. Amen. 
Here are some verses to remind us of the trusting God that we have. * Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me. — John‬ ‭14:1‬ ‭
* We are confident of all this because of our great trust in God through Christ. — 2 Corinthians‬ ‭3:4‬
* But I am like an olive tree, thriving in the house of God. I will always trust in God’s unfailing love. — Psalms‬ ‭52:8‬ ‭
* Through Christ you have come to trust in God. And you have placed your faith and hope in God because he raised Christ from the dead and gave him great glory. — 1 Peter‬ ‭1:21‬ ‭
* Trust in the Lord always, for the Lord GOD is the eternal Rock. — Isaiah‬ ‭26:4‬
* I did this so you would trust not in human wisdom but in the power of God. — 1 Corinthians‬ ‭2:5‬ ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨

It was the last day of homeschool co-op before Christmas break and my cooking class had made marshmallow snowmen. After class, one boy in my grade told me he liked my snowman and my insides felt like they could melt! ⛄
.
I went home that day, thinking he was super cute. All during Christmas break, my thoughts would drift to that boy and how he told me he liked my marshmallow snowman. I wondered if he liked me. I decided I had a crush on him. 💕After all, he did say he liked my snowman. #logic 😅
.
Then Christmas break ended and co-op restarted. He and I had a class together that spring and I was thrilled!
.
But then the strangest thing happened- he didn’t act like the sweet gentleman I had imagined him to be over Christmas. He behaved like an eight-year-old boy! Laughing at body noises and teasing girls too much. Ew. 🙄 Rolling my eyes, I decided that day that my crush on him was over! 😂
.
What's your funniest crush story? 😅

Shifting Sands (Peru) // “Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.”⠀

🌿In this first chapter of 1 Corinthians, Paul is speaking to the church in Corinth and also those everywhere who call on the name of the Lord--meaning US! He thanks God for the believers, reminding us that we have been enriched in every way by Jesus. Then he goes on the explain that as we wait for Jesus' return, that he will make us strong until the end. ..
🌿Honestly, I need to lean into that strength right now. I'm writing this after a long day and am weary. It's a struggle at times to read these promises and then to feel the exhaustion and weariness of life. How do I make sense of it all? Sometimes I need to find rest physically, other times, it is in my very weaknesses that he makes me strong…when I've come to the end of myself. I was stressing earlier when I would get these devotions written and then my evening openned wide, yet its taking every ounce of strength to keep going. Even then he can somehow use my weakness for his glory. ..
🌿Lord Jesus, I pray your powerful strength for us who are feeling weary and weak tonight. Keep us strong through our days. Help us to lean into you and your mighty strength. Pour your gifts on us, refresh us with your Holy Spirit, overflow your renewal on us once again dear Lord. ..

Most of you know I have been doing an 80 day home fitness program! The workouts are streamed from my computer and the meals are all planned out for me I just have to go to the grocery store👊 
I commit 30 minutes a day and I have a trainer telling me exactly what to do! 
I'm sharing this because 5 years ago I never would have thought you could get such amazing results from working out at home! After becoming a mom the last thing I want to do is lose anymore time with my kids because I am at the gym.... but I needed to exercise! Exercise helped me relieve stress, have more energy, become stronger and more confident! So.... I found these workouts! 5 years later I am in the best shape of my life and I want to share it with anybody I can! 🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉 Most moms think:
💪I don't have the time
💪I don't know where to start
💪I'm not strong enough
💪I can't afford it (less than $13 a month)
💪It's to hard
💪excuses, excuses, excuses

We complain , but we won't make the steps to start... well this mommy did and so did the ones below👇 I have watched ladies get up at 4 am or workout at 10pm! Fight sickness, insecurities, doubt, and just being tired... but still press play in that workout because they knew how they would feel when they were done🙋  I am on day 61, and once we get this stomach bug out of my house I can finish this program up and share my results! 🙌

These results are amazing and if you are interested in me helping you achieve results or finding out more info drop a 🙋 below or send me a message❤️
