How to Love Yourself When Your Struggling

How to Love Yourself When Your Struggling

I've never been a fan of waiting. Standing still is like torture for me. I like to keep moving. I'm a busy-body, however I need to clarify that I'm not impatient, I just loath activities that require me to come to a slow steady halt or sitting/standing for an extended period of time...doing nothing but [...]

Majestically Awkward

Majestically Awkward

I don't deny that I am complex individual. At times I can be very quiet and private, only sharing things about myself that the other party will relate to or understand, leaving out large portions that maybe I assume people wouldn't "get" about me.  My intentions are never to appear inauthentic, what people see of [...]

Misunderstood, Overlooked, and Underestimated

Misunderstood, Overlooked, and Underestimated

If someone asked me "What is one of your biggest fears?" My answer would be "That someone would misunderstand my heart." Being misunderstood can cause a lot of confusion, hurt feelings and it can be discouraging. If you look up the word Misunderstood in the dictionary it will say "incorrectly interpreted." I've been misunderstood many [...]

Flaws & Faith

Flaws & Faith

Sometimes when someone fails or falls short, we are so quick to point out their failure(s). We demand retribution or punishment for their faults, while pointing all the things they haven't succeeded in. Maybe even saying to oneself "Thank you, God, I'm not like that sinner." We scoff, gossip, and silently raise an eyebrow. All too [...]

My Identity in Him

My Identity in Him

Daily I struggle with some level of identity crisis, by no fault but my own. When I recognize this creeping into my life, I rush to those verses scattered throughout my ❤️ like a wall of protection. These verses tell me that I am Chosen. I am loved dearly. I am Holy. I am free [...]

Why It’s Absolutely Okay To Let It Go.

Why It’s Absolutely Okay To Let It Go.

This. This is what makes me so confused and realize that I somehow am doing this "mother" thing all wrong. In case you're wondering, the bright yellow you are seeing RIGHT beside the trashcan, is cheese. Yep. Cheese on my clean floor. The person in my family that has ownership rights to this little act [...]

Wear Love Everywhere

This year I will invest more in God, Family, & Love. This year I will no longer be a ‘Yes’ person to everything and everyone. I’m by nature a people pleaser and a giver, often leaving myself to feel drained & exhausted (wishing I had ended that recent conversation with a ‘No’). I think often [...]

Let’s Be Better Humans

Let’s Be Better Humans

So many times throughout the day we see FB posts or over-hear conversations of who is better than who, who works harder, and all the wrong mistakes everyone is making. Let us build each other up, instead of tearing each other down. I must remind myself of this daily, being careful to not be a [...]

Lessons for my Daughter ❤️

Lessons for my Daughter ❤️

Today my first born and only daughter turned 12. I was always so confident I would have all girls. As we all know God's ways are higher than ours, we don't get to chose. She is my first, my last, and my one and only baby girl. I reflect often of the many things I [...]

It’s a Dog Eat World 

It’s a Dog Eat World 

Checking out at Petco and I hear my #2 kid, Josiah, smacking on some food. 🤔 I think for a moment as I slowly turn my gaze to this unpredictable kid of mine. Why would he be eating something (we just ate at Denny's). Better yet...WHAT is he eating? Stupid doggie treat buffet right by [...]
