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, …

Planning for 2019

My mind is blown!  How is 2019 just a couple of weeks away?!  Where did 2018 go?! I mean, are we really sure we’re going into TWENTY-NINETEEN!!! We were JUST entering 2009 like yesterday 😭 Anyway, since getting married, my husband and I begin planning out our goals, vacations and events for the following year, …

Give Thanks

It’s easy to be thankful when everything is going right; When everyone is doing well and everyone is happy. The last few weeks, God has been showing me that I need to be thankful even when life isn’t going how I want it to. To be thankful, when we’re sick, stressed and overwhelmed with to …

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 …

An Introduction

INTRO TO MY INTRO I've taken a little break from blogging. In fact, I believe I've only posted once, so far this year. Lately, I've been really thinking and praying about this blog and where to go and what to do from here.  With that being said, I really want to work on branding myself/blog …

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! …

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 …
