Rest

If you follow along with me on social media, you know that I'm big on taking breaks, from my instagram. The last two weeks, I was absent from it and of course, it felt good. Also, if you know me and follow along, you know I started another account to go hand in hand with …

Clear the Clutter

Clutter. I absolutely H A T E clutter. Yet, as I type, my coffee table is cluttered with folded laundry. The chair next to it is cluttered with more clean, not yet folded laundry.  This type of clutter is ok, since it’ll soon be folded and put away neatly, Konmari style. If you haven’t seen …

Balancing Act

How many times have we been asked, have we asked or have we wondered, how can/do/should we balance it all?  Marriage, motherhood, work, ministry, friendships, etc. The older I get, I have begun to realize that it’s actually NOT about balance, it’s about priority.  You see, balance is holding two things, were the weight is …

Change

goals, change, dreams, motivation, blog, mom blog, blogging, faith blog, mom devotional

We all have goals. We all have desires. We all want to see that change.  At the start of every year, we jot all these things down, saying that "this is the year!" The year comes and goes, and we have one "check" here and there, and we're back to the same habits, same routines, …

Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff

This morning as I was reading a devotional, I came across this quote I hadn't heard before. Maybe you have, but it was the first time I'd read it and it really stuck with me. "Yesterday is the past, tomorrow is the future, but today is a gift. That's why it's called the present." -Bil …

God First

We live in a social media driven world. It’s so easy to get distracted by Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat, the News app etc. We fall victim to their rabbit holes and before we know it, we’ve been scrolling through our phones for an hour! I’m talking to myself here too. This verse says, “Seek FIRST...” not …

What Were We Thinking?!

We began building our home in early 2016 and that October, we moved in. It was so hard to make decision after decision after decision. From light fixtures, to door knobs... who knew it could get so frustrating?! This is what my husband does for a living... he builds other people's houses, but being on …

Apple Seeds

  It's almost 2018! What?! How?! It is crazy how much time just passes us by in the blink of an eye. What a year this has been! It's been great for my family and me and I'm excited for what 2018 will bring. The other day, I was eating an apple. It was so …

Make It Happen

This past weekend, a few of my friends and I went to Waco, Texas to attend the Magnolia Silobration. It was such a fun little girls weekend trip and I loved every minute! I absolutely love Fixer Upper and love Chip and Joanna! They're seriously the cutest! So, going to Magnolia was definitely a highlight! …

S E V E N

There's no "7 Year Itch" here! On the 13th of August, Sam and I celebrated S E V E N years of marriage! It's so crazy...I feel like just yesterday, I was walking down the aisle, anxiously and joyously waiting to hear, "Sam, you may now kiss your BRIDE!" How I LOVE being his bride! …
