Walk in it

  This is what the Lord says: “Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls...” (‭Jeremiah‬ ‭6‬:‭16‬ NIV) We have a choice to make every day. It’s not a one and done. It’s not …

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 …

Not Your Average Meal Prepper

Meal prepping has begun! Who loves meal prepping?! Not going to lie... I really don't like it LOL I mean, it's awesome after all is said and done. But in the moment, I'm kind of annoyed by it... am I the only one? *I hope I'm not* 😝 While chopping up these delicious veggies, I …

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 …

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 …

NOT TODAY

Life is an oxymoron. It's rough, tough, crazy, wild, sad, lonely, discouraging. At the same time, it's easy, fun, chill, happy, full of love, family, friends and laughter, encouraging and hopeful. However, lately I have been feeling discouraged.  I hate discouragement! I know that success doesn't happen over night. It takes time, it takes hard …

Time

  For the next 18 years, we will have first days of schools; and I can't wait to capture that smile every time, yes even when she goes off to her first day of college! She just started in Pre-K 3, and although she's only going three days a week, there's so much excitement in …

The hood called parent

There's a fine line as parents, that we teeter when it comes to giving our kids the things we wish we had as children. At least, my husband and I have that struggle. Growing up, my parents worked hard just to provide the basic things for my siblings and I, and while we weren't on …
