Self-confidence is a feeling of trust in one's abilities, qualities, and judgment {thanks dictionary.com}.
.
And it’s much easier to be self-confident when you know your self-worth and your identity.  You have infinite value because you His child. 💕That’s WHO you are. Know that you have access to your Dad’s kingdom.
.
Confidence in Him is the confidence that carries me. .

We learned about Buddha in my kiddos history class last week and they didn't know what to think about all his sayings 😂. Lots of "smart people listen" and "always be kind" sorts of stuff. It made them evaluate their own attitudes, I think ;). Anyway, sometimes we need that mirror to ourselves, right?

YOU GUYS!!!!!! I can finally feel my core getting stronger. 
I used to be that girl that had washboard abs, and then my body's purpose changed. And I became a vessel for life (four times). Each time giving birth via c-section. Each experience was beautiful and precious to me.
And my body changed, it was meant to change. I became the nourishment each and all of my children needed. 
And while I grew leaps and bounds mentally and spiritually during those years, physically I stayed mostly static, putting all of the energy I had into creating love and security within my family. This is a very demanding task. 
But now I am sleeping more, hallelujah, and I have more energy for other facets of my life again. 
I hope you know that if you're in the phase of life where you Google search chronic fatigue syndrome, and wonder how much caffeine is humanly possible to sustain life, if you fall asleep cooking eggs in the morning and zombie walk to bed each time you get up in the middle of the night.....we are soul sisters. And I can tell you that you need to take care of yourself and you need to give yourself a break. You have x amount of years to raise these babies, and I do mean babies. Babies and toddlers are so demanding, so give yourself some grace, stay healthy and dont worry about your "fit test" yet.  Sleep mama, rest, and live your best life without adding the stress of body shaming. You are beautiful,  you are a vessel of life. Embrace that, provide that, and enjoy that! 
And when the time comes that your feeling spry again, allow yourself to continue to grow and improve in whatever way best serves you. 
You've got this. -Kaysha

Goodness, I adore the beauty God gives us before a cold winter with the beautiful coloring surrounding us in the fall. He’s a gracious creator, that’s for sure!

Also, does anyone remember when you used to carry your camera with you everywhere and now we can take pictures like these with our PHONES?! Isn’t that just crazy to think about sometimes?

{The heavy Truth about Love pt.1}
.
Through my short time here in Nepal, I have seen in the eyes of the people the cultural clash that comes with me being a “westerner”.
.
Their livelihood depends on knowing English, knowing what’s important to other cultures and adapting their ways to suit that of foreigners. It unsettles me to learn that while I can visit their land and essentially benefit from it without any necessity to know their culture, they HAVE TO know mine.
.
The sad truth is that, for many, the colour of my skin symbolises food and shelter. This deeply saddens me and only reflects the deep stain in the tapestry of humanity. We are orphaned and divided, and I’m not ok with that.
.
Maybe racial reconciliation is not just a social justice issue that demands laws and programmes. Maybe, simply put, it’s a love issue.
.
This is all thanks to a podcast the amazing @pray4lillian sent me. Thank you Lillz! ❤️ Thank you @latashamorrison - you’ve put words to feelings and expanded the conversation. Keep making waves.
.
Pretty heart wrenching topic for me but for now, this is a beautiful family I met yesterday who through love, invited me into their table and I was truly grateful! Swipe right to be filled by the son’s smile as well as a snippet of him and his cousin 😂😭❤️ #lovedoes

Teaching kids about safety behaviours and antiviolence is so important!
.
.
I encourage parents to teach age appropriate body safety education and anti-abuse messages as soon as they can talk. Sometimes people say to me – that’s way too young, I say, really? Did you know that kids are most at risk of sexual abuse between the ages of 3-8 years? Don’t we want to teach kids, irrespective of gender, to respect each other and learn that violence is not o.k? Teaching and modelling safety behaviours and antiviolence is so important.
.
We need to make body safety and antiviolence messages part of a child’s history, just like we explain how they were born. I never want kids to remember a time when they didn’t know this information. Make it part of their history - teach them young and make it part of their data input.
.
I love the Australian government ‘Stop it at the Start’ campaign - https://www.respect.gov.au/ The aim is to dispel some of the common ‘excuses’ (I call them) that we all have heard or even used in the past to accept females being harassed and abused.
.
There are so many amazing resources out there to help parents and guardians teach kids these messages @educate2empower. These conversations are not ‘one-offs,’ they are ongoing and evolve as the child gets older. I do have a lot of parents and guardians feeling anxious about delivering this information, but when they do, they feel proud and confident to do it again. I also point out, they are only modelling to their kids they can have difficult conversations and push through their discomfit - that’s fantastic!!!
.
Educate kids and teach them the words they can use when they need to use their voice.

My heart is heavy with all the loss this week. The fires have destroyed so much, but hope remains. I have hope as I see the outpouring of love and support to our neighbors to the north. Even my sweet little kindergarteners wanted to help. As we give thanks this week remember all that we have and can be grateful for...and,if you can, help others.

Kenny’s been traveling to Canada for work LOADS lately. His adventures have me missing the atmosphere of air travel. I have two rules for myself when I travel. 1. ALWAYS dress up for your strangers. 2. Look in as many eyes as possible. /// we’re all so important. Sometimes, we will only have ONE meeting with someone in our whole lives. Bring your best and love big if you can manage to do it! 
Do you have travel traditions or habits?

Often time we can't always see the bigger picture of what God has planned. Take a step back today and shift your perspective. He's working and moving on your behalf even when you're unsure of what's next. #InspireSocialGood

For the girl who is struggling with singleness
-
I shared this with the girls in the CFM, but I think y’all need to hear it too.
-
I know so many of you are struggling with singleness, or relationship struggles and I just want you to know that you are worth more than second thoughts and maybes.
-
No guy, no relationship should ever make you question your worth or identity, or make you walk away from your relationship with Christ
-
Every relationship before my husband started on a foundation of me sacrificing my love for Jesus to feel good enough for a guy
-
A guy was interested in me? Well Jesus can sit on the side lines for a bit while I get close to this guy and earn his love
-
But sis, it doesn’t have to be that way. Jesus’ Love isn’t earned. It’s FREELY given
-
Pray that God would bring you a man who makes you want to love Him deeper and harder
-
And I know you might be thinking “lex, I’ve been praying for that. So so long I’ve prayed for that...but still nothing”
-
Are you wholeheartedly seeking God’s own heart before you are seeking to be seen by a man? What if you let go searching for yourself, fully turned your face toward Jesus, and prayed for your future person like you’ve already got him
-
I think your heart would feel less fragile. I think your desire to be loved by a man would still be there, but I think your hunger for Jesus would be stronger. And I definitely think your loneliness wouldn’t be so deep
-
I GET how hard it is to wait for that person, or even believe there is one. To feel like everyone else around you is happy. But what God’s been telling me lately is that He is ALWAYS working behind the scenes
-
So while we stay steadfast in prayer, BELIEVING that He wants someone to cherish our hearts and champion our lives, He’s working out all the little details for this Devine meeting
-
One that might take longer than you’d like. And one that really might look different than you expected. But God’s never going to work in a way that we can easily predict. He wants to see your full faith and your full trust
-
You are so dang beautiful, powerful, and wanted. Every single bit of you is something someone else is praying for.

What an incredible weekend of rest and renewal for our precious marriage. It is so easy when things get hard to question if you’re with the “right one”. We were reminding these past few days that God has never made a mistake, and he’s not going to start now. Our marriage was on purpose, FOR a purpose. •
•
So, how is our script? We should be speaking truth, empowering, and pressing in to one another. Unfortunately, our relationship has fallen to the wayside as stressors arise. Connor and I spent the past 48 hours taking inventory of our feelings, and getting our marriage back on course. Because a happy, healthy relationship leads to happy, healthy parenting. Not to mention, I really enjoy the guy. 😘

P.S. Connor says this picture is too private to share on my Instagram.. but when have I ever held back? This is us, when we actually like each other.

You are loved.  It’s a message we all need to hear.  And believe.  Today @bpresentstudiofishers these kiddos learned about homelessness, saw photos of the tents and camps some of Indianapolis’ ~5,000 homeless population live.  They made cards, thought about what things they might often take for granted, and then “boxed out homelessness” with music and movement.  Love thy neighbor happens one choice at a time.  One day at a time.  One person at a time.  And it’s never too soon to start.

I had a revelation this morning.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’ve been pushing & fighting & wishing & goal setting & learning & implementing for so long.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’m cutting away alllllll the BS and focusing on two things:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1// Serve people.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2// Trust God.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
That’s it. I think if I keep my priorities straight, I can’t go wrong.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Would you agree???
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
PS. Reading @bobgoff has changed my life.

The rescuer needs someone to anchor the line for them. Will you be our anchor as we seek to be the #handsandfeet  of Jesus in Uganda?💕 In this season of #gratitude  and #giving , your gift will transform lives and communities for eternity. 💕From now through the end of November, any new, recurring monthly donations will be doubled as a one-time gift, additionally. Thank you! Message me or comment here and I'll send you the secure link.
“Whether or not we see dramatic miracles, there is always a holy joy when we know that God is present and at work among us…God was present from the start of Harvest Bridge, when He called us to start it from nothing. God was present as He guided us and created the partnerships on which it is built. God’s presence is still evident among us, in both quiet, inconspicuous ways, and through mighty miracles…Thank you for being part of this divine adventure. We hope you take pleasure not only from the thousands of people who benefit from this ministry, but also from the knowledge that God is behind it all.” // ~Link in Bio~ to read our full Thanksgiving Newsletter by our president! // 📸: @katetherese.r #HarvestBridge #GiveThanks #LiveThankful

Over a hundred hams in the fridge means over a hundred Thanksgiving dinners in bags...which means over a hundred families in our community that wouldn’t have had a Thanksgiving dinner, now will. So very grateful to our partners and their desire to live out God’s love in their actions. #loveinaction #lovedoes #loveyourneighbor #loveyourneighborhood #wevegotturkeystoo

Women empower women. One of my favorite parts of the event I hosted yesterday was having other amazing #bossbabes come and support me.
⠀
You have a choice in business and in life; live in competition, in fear, in scarcity: or live in LOVE ❤️.
⠀
I choose community over competition - and I know when I create a culture of sharing and connecting and learning together, I am attracting the same into my life.
⠀
Be cautious of fear based behaviors. Of competition, of the idea of “mine”.... fear creates insecurity; love and trust opens doors 🚪.

A throwback to honor this friend who changes the world one yellow balloon moment at a time: embracing people for who they are, believing the best in them, and offering forgiveness on the hardest days. #LoveDoes in action. I’m thankful for this friend and his call to action in my own life; for the countless lives he’s positively impacted and will continue to. 💛

If you look up the definition of self-confidence, you will find this… a feeling of trust in one's abilities, qualities, and judgment. We hear about the importance of self-confidence all the time. We are told to own who we are and go out to conquer the world, because we can! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’ll be honest, that gets me pumped. Like yes girl, you can do it! You can do anything you set your mind to! If you believe you can do it, you can! You have got this! Anyone else feeling super pumped by those words?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Okay, but now to burst your bubble a little bit. Self-confidence fails us. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Come read our newest blog post called “A new kind of confidence”. I hope you leave encouraged and ready to take on your day. 💛

(If) we are in Christ, we are a new creation. Made New in the image of Christ, no longer bearing the marks, weights, chains, sins, and lifestyles of someone who does not know God. We have been transferred into the Kingdom of Light and adopted as Children of God through faith in the sacrifice and love shown in the blood of Christ on the Cross.
✝️
But what about sin? Why do we still sin and struggle? ✝️
It's a big question, and a sancifying one. 🌎
What I do know, is that as we focus on Christ and see Him as the Truth,  the Way, and The Life --> treasuring Him far above all, and abiding In Him, not neglecting to meet together to stir each other up in faith in the Word of God --> The lies of the enemy and the sins of darkness don't stand a chance in the light of His love. 🔥

Thanking God for leading me to this amazing #connectgroup at @hillsongtoronto It is a safe space to share, discuss,ask questions and ecourage each other as we learn more about the word of God and how it applies to our lives. We just wrapped the last session of our series #LoveDoes with @bobgoff and my heart is full! Looking forward to growing in my faith and witnessing the miraculous in my peers as well! Thank you to Lorena and Bruno our group leaders and all these lovely people.

One thing that matters most to me is family.
.
My bro’s and sis are some really creative, talented, and generous people and it lights me up when we get to spend quality time together. Get us in a room together and all the silliness comes out!
.
Thankful to our parents who have raised us with values that we each carry.
.
1. Having faith in God is what directs our path
2. Life is about the experiences you have with others, not material items.
3. We carry an adventurous spirit in all areas of life 
3. Travel is our greatest joy because it changes every perspective on life in the way we see humanity and the world.
4. Serving others is what we are created to do
5. Enjoy being in the moment
6. Work hard and believe you can achieve everything you are created to do.
7. Be grateful for all things (even the challenges) because when we chose to have a grateful heart we can get through anything.
.
Building a foundation is so fundamental to your future. Blessed to live life fully and see the beauty in all things with these crazy kids ❤️
.
Thanks to @genesisproject_seattle  who had an incredible fundraiser we got to support fighting for the freedom for those caught in sex trafficking.

VULNERABILITY ↟
“...is terrifying. The courage it takes to reveal your heart is one of the most daunting ...and yet rewarding experiences in life.
Being our messy, imperfect, authentic selves helps create a place where others feel save to be themselves too. Your vulnerability can be a gift to others, how badass is that?”
↟
It’s the most gorgeous thing on a human being and my sweet painful adventure of the last 5 years. I wouldn’t wanna miss a moment and it’s still just the beginning. But I wanna celebrate the small steps. The step of allowing people to see me, to feel me, to get to know the imperfect incapable beautiful me and also to reach out to people’s hearts and not being satisfied with the surface. It cost you all but rewards you more. To make a difference in this generation.
↟
Be bold. Be you. Be gold. Be true.

Last night on the way to the store I had to stop and take this shot. It’s amazing that fog and frost can create something so beautiful. I am not the biggest fan of winter. Freezing temperatures, having to put on 15 layers to not turn into an icicle whilst your toddler is having a blast playing outside and doesn’t ever want to come in😑 but it’s things like this that make it worth while 🖤

I love that a good chunk of my working day revolves around simply sitting down and making stuff.
⠀⠀
I’ve had my hands full lately on some print products, and that’s totally fun for me. Here are some recent things I’m pleased with.

Had the pleasure of hearing Bob Goff speak at church this morning. He’s full of positivity and is a walking, breathing example of what it means to live BIG; by loving, leading and living inspired.
.
Concepts that rattle my mind, beliefs that challenge my heart and people that awaken my soul are the reasons I listen to so many podcasts. Often times my life seems monochromatic- same people, same routes, same tasks. It’s my way of stepping outside my bubble to relate to others- no matter social status, political stances, religious beliefs, lifestyle choices or appearances.  I’m working on loving #everybodyalways

People have to practice if they ever hope to be how the want to be - Glennon Doyle Melton.⠀
⠀
Such a simple little statement packed with so much gut-wrenching truth. How are you moving towards the person you’re wanting to be? And no...not striving to be the person you compare yourself to. The YOU you’re wanting to be. Do you know what you’re capable of if you allow yourself to push for that greatness? So. Dang. Much.⠀
⠀
I practice to bring myself to this place. Where my soul is refreshed as it’s filled with truth and helps me align my crazy jumbled thoughts to God’s loving and gracious and kind plan for me.⠀
⠀
I practice to bring myself to move my body because it is empowering, healing, and I see how my internal growth also impacts my external. I hope to always be moving towards my body’s best physical potential.⠀
⠀
If you’re wanting something so desperately, how are you practicing to get there? We must work hard for it and be a soldier for ourselves. Because in the work, that’s where true change and freedom and fun happens.

I know you may be going through a tough season. I know it may seem like things aren’t aligning how they should be. But guess what? You were chosen for such a time as this. You were chosen to be where you are right now. You were chosen to for this degree. You were chosen for this job. You were chosen to be the mom of that child. You were chosen to walk through these difficulties. You were chosen to share your story. You were chosen to go where God leads and change the place that you live in. Be thankful for this season. Be thankful that you have been chosen. 💛
