So many of these girls are on my ❤️ tonight.
To think I didn’t know any of them just few years ago is almost a little scary. Ok. I kinda, sorta knew one. She was a preschool mom like me. That’s about all I knew. 🤷🏼♀️ Now she’s a bestie for the restie. 💕
Now I’ve got even more prayer warriors on my side. 💕
Now I’ve got women blowing up my phone with “You got this!” and “I’m here for you” and “Love you girl!” throughout the day when I need it the most. 💕
Now I’ve got a crew of like-minded mamas motivating my to live my #bestlife 💕
Coaching did that.
Saying yes to “that feeling” did that.
Sharing an opportunity did that.
And it’s about to do so much more. 💥❤️💥
¡Minitraducciones! "Caroline" by Jon Foreman. Todos podemos ser esa Caroline de la que habla Jon, es una canción personal del artista y habla de una chica que se alejó de su camino. En una entrevista le preguntaron "¿Hay alguna Caroline por ahí por la cuál todavía te estás preguntando?" respondió: "Sí, absolutamente. Su nombre podría no ser Caroline, pero es una historia real." La entrevista continúa preguntando "¿Cómo fue escribir esa canción? ¿Fue difícil volver a repasar esos sentimientos y acumular esos recuerdos?", Jon responde: "Ya sabes, todas estas canciones son historias reales, y creo que es mejor que así fuera. Me encanta usar la música como una forma de minar varias partes de mí mismo que no puedo entender de otra manera. Ya sea que sea mi propia canción o alguien más, creo que la música tiene ese poder para meterse debajo de la piel y llegar al meollo de la cuestión."

One of the verses that inspired my song The Way God Moves is in Luke 15 where Jesus gives us an example of God's love. He says, which of you, if you had 100 sheep and one went missing, would you not leave the 99 and go looking for that one that was lost until you found it.
You are precious to God. He's not far off somewhere you can't reach Him, you're not insignificant to Him, He's not a hands-off God who doesn't care. He actively pursues those who are hurting, broken-hearted, in need of a miracle. That's the way God moves.
You can listen to my song The Way God Moves on Apple Music and Spotify, just go to my bio link. I hope it will be a blessing to you.
I always told myself I would rather die chasing my dreams instead of looking back wondering what if .. I love music, but my real dream is to see peoples lives being impacted with hope .. Not hope for money, or fame .. but hope that God has a special plan for your life .. hope that God loves you no matter what you've done or been thru .. hope that the worst situation can change into something beautiful .. I'm living proof .. never give up .. #IMALIVE2018
The Light To My Path
Yesterday I said I was getting back on the path of doing somethings I needed to do but have lost track of. One of them is daily and consistent Bible reading and study.
Let's be honest, like me you have stopped reading your Bible for days... or weeks... or even months... The consequences for this sometimes seem obvious, but other times they are not.
One of of the biggest problems of not being in in God's Word is you forget who you are. Understanding your identity is extremely important to the way you interact in life.
I read the book of Ecclesiastes today. Here is part that really stood out and made me stop and think for a moment. "There was a man all alone; he had neither son nor brother.
There was no end to his toil, yet his eyes were not content with his wealth.
“For whom am I toiling,” he asked, “and why am I depriving myself of enjoyment?”
This too is meaningless— a miserable business! Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up.
But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken."
Awhile back I wanted to put some decorations in a high “built in” at our house. My husband had offered to go borrow a tall ladder to reach it. Instead when he was mowing the lawn I moved the table underneath it and put a chair on top of the table and tried to carefully avoid the light fixture to put these decorations up while the chair wobbled. I wanted to do it myself. In hindsight that was pretty stupid. I could have gotten hurt.
When my life feels upside I’m usually not alone but I have a hard time accepting help. Usually there are people that ask to help in small ways. “Can I get the door for you?” “Can I help you find something?” “Are you doing alright?” “Do you need me to help you with the kids?” My usual response...”I’m good.” “I’m fine.”
I don’t like accepting help from people because then it feels like I owe someone something. I really don’t like that feeling.
Sometimes handling it on my own is a good thing. I think it’s helped me be extremely independent. (Maybe to a fault lol)
The downside is I also tend to be an isolated person if I’m not consciously choosing to be relationship minded because I want to do it all myself. I’m usually afraid of being vulnerable and looking weak.
I’ve been learning to try and accept help when it’s offered even if it’s small, especially on days it feels life is upside down. I’m learning that accepting help doesn’t mean I’m weak.
Do you guys have a hard time accepting help?
