Do y’all remember that game you would play when you were a kid…. “Never would I ever…” You would make up some funny one liner, or a very serious, not even a hint of a joke, never would you ever statement. But either way, it would always include a circle of you and your friends all sharing your biggest never ever ever statements. That game is all fun and stuff when you’re little but I feel like the second that… Read more »

About four months ago I made the decision to fully pursue the business side of Young Living Essential Oils. I know, I know, who isn’t these days right? But after using the product, loving the product, and having our lives changed by the product I couldn’t help but want to share. I am a stay at home mama. A homeschooling stay at home mama. And so to me, this opportunity seemed perfect. Something I could do during naptime, or in… Read more »

We began our homeschool year last week. It is so crazy to me the journey that the Lord can take us on. Just last year as I was prepping the boys and rushing them out the door I was so thankful to have the days to myself, to have someone else in charge of their learning, and to just be able to do my own thing for a few hours during the day. While none of those thoughts have really changed…I… Read more »

I have been kind of struggling lately with all the things of this world. Friends, my faith is secure, I know who made me , who loves me, and where I am going, but I am human and I have good old (or maybe bad old) human thoughts. I think it may be partially from my rebirth on Facebook. You see and are bombarded with so much life stuff at such a high rate in such a small amount of… Read more »

I wrote a brief caption about this last night on my Instagram but I can’t help but speak on it a little more here. Comparison is something I have struggled with for a very long time. It’s so easy to get caught up in what everyone else is doing and forget about what you have, isn’t it? I spent the last week trying to figure out why my eye was twitching. It wouldn’t stop, in fact it bothered me so… Read more »

Lately, I have been shown the overwhelming grace of Gods timing. Everything in its season and time. Yeah? I just sit here in amazement at the place where I am at… This place, right here, right now.  Everything that I am surrounded by are dreams that weren’t ever even dreamed. I have friends that I never knew would be in my life really in my life and filling me up with truth every single day. I have children I didn’t… Read more »

Every day I drive past this little teeny tiny church. And everyday for the past four weeks this message has been posted on the bulletin, change is made out of metal because it is hard For a few weeks I just laughed at the clever statement, but then slowly I began to see this exact statement thread through every part of my day. Isn’t it funny how things like that happen? I feel a tug on my heart, knowing that… Read more »

My church has been focusing on love the past month or so, and not love as an adjective but love as a verb. Love as an action, love doing something so others see it and feel it. They have kind of been knocking it out of the park lately with this series, because in all honesty there was a time last year when I felt so disconnected from church, and not just my church, but any church. You see God had… Read more »

Yes. I will let that sink in for just a second because….yes. What a vessel that man is, yeah? Believing our circumstances are more important than Gods command. I don’t even think one person can say that this isn’t them, that they haven’t chosen their circumstances over rejoicing. Because really, we are human, with perfectly imperfect human nature and desires and ego’s. Friends, my circumstances feel all consuming at times. It is easier to look at my life and cry… Read more »

Over the summer I was asked to be a children’s leader at the Bible Study I have been attending. I couldn’t help but laugh. Bible study was my alone time. My time to myself, the few quiet hours of adult interaction sans kids. They were now asking me to give that up, to teach even more kids, and on top of that teach kids that weren’t even mine. I had to think about it. Right!? I mean how is one… Read more »
