Daughters are one of the greatest blessings of Allah Almighty. On good upbringing of daughters Allah Almighty has promised a great place in paradise. The feather of brother who brings up three daughters or three sisters or two daughters or sisters according to the teachings of Islam and fulfill their all rights there is guarantee paradise for that person. Someone asked the Prophet (P.B.U.H) “what if Allah Almighty has given anyone just one daughter?” the Prophet (P.B.U.H) replied that the same reward is for that person that is a beautiful place in paradise. If Allah almighty has not blesses someone with daughter someone there is no promise of paradise for that person.
From this you can come to know the importance of daughters. Daughter is the most beautiful gift of Allah Almighty. The persons to whom Allah Almighty has blesses with daughters is among people favorite people of Allah.

We all have been through tough times. Some more than others, but a universal human experience is adversity. Jesus Himself affirms this truth and says, "Here on earth, you will have many sorrows." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So, the real question we should be asking is not "Will adversity come?" But, "What do I do when adversity comes?" That is the exact question we will be looking at over these next two weeks. We believe God has powerful truths for us and we are so excited to explore them together as a family. Come join us this week as Erin and Matt co-teach this new series called "Take Heart.” See you all there!
A limitação começa nela.
A incapacidade começa nela. Tudo o que nos trava é fabricado de alguma forma na nossa mente.
Aprender a usar a nossa mente a fim de evoluirmos é um desafio diário que dá muitos frutos.
This has been one of the struggles I’ve been experiencing. ⠀
Intentionally slowing down when I feel like I have so much to do with work, business, family and friends, taking care of my puppy, dating, and making sure I’m nourishing all 4 realms of myself as a human being.⠀
It’s okay to press pause and reschedule plans to refuel your tank, even though I like to operate at 100 clicks an hour😂. ⠀
I’m grateful I have people in my life to remind me to slow down and take time to ‘just be.’ 💕⠀
What do you do to be there for yourself? ⠀
Gentle reminder: It’s ok to grow slow. You never get to where you want to be over night, good things grow little by little. Trust the process and find a pace that works for YOU.
Choosing the high road and doing things the right way always wins the race. Eventually your little by little steps will add up and the best things will follow. #growslow#trusttheprocess#gentlereminder#darlingmovement#womeninbusiness

last weekend my baby sister asked what contributed to our success... our code in no particular order... honesty. willingness to compromise. patience. the ability to hear what someone is telling you as opposed to what you want to hear. learning to speak to be heard, not to change minds. a willingness to try new things. the ability to grow. the ability to accept your partner’s growth. being supportive of each other’s life goals. the ability to, at times, prioritize the relationship with your spouse over the current wants/demands of your children. respectful co-parenting. financial integrity.... and the realization that it is all for naught if it's only one-sided. oh. and definitely sex before any family travel. must. crucial.✌🏾😘 this quote basically sums up our life together: being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.🌿✨ - lao tzu —— this love gives me wings.
From one of our last evenings in Newfoundland - a beautiful sunset, the sloping silhouette of the Rock, and cooking eggs in their shell over the fire. I love getting to look back at photos for the memories and to appreciate the richness of life. #comefromaway2018

PRACTICING SELF-CARE | Feeling depleted has become our norm. Being burnt out is not a badge of honour. Self-care isn't selfish, it's necessary. It's giving the world the best of you, not what's left of you by taking care of yourself at a deeper level.
This might come easy to some of you already. With busy lives we often live on auto pilot. If guilt and self-indulgent feelings arise it's time to let them go. Stop. Breathe. Schedule in time to prioritize yourself. Let this be your time to slow down to check in with yourself. It can look like treating yourself to a massage, quality sleep in, expressing your creativity, soaking in the bath or mine is beach therapy + training, whatever it is. Treat it as a special appointment. We all know we can't serve from an empty vessel. Remember, you deserve it! 😊💛💭 #fridaythoughts#investinyourself#fillyourcup#treatyourselfwell#mentalhealthmatters#gentlereminder#radvice

Someone else’s experiences, challenges, or illnesses do not invalidate your own. What you are experiencing is valid. Your challenges are valid. Your illnesses are valid. •
One of the worst things I ever did to myself was compare my pain others. I kept telling myself that because I have so many positive things in my life, so many privileges—that I couldn’t possibly be as low as I thought I was. •
This toxic attitude kept me from seeking help and treatment and ultimately a diagnosis of clinical depression, one that I’m managing through medicine and therapy. It boggles my mind that I thought I could just will myself happy, that because I only had this one thing wrong that I didn’t deserve help. •
Again I say: BULLSHIT. •
Your experiences are valid. Your challenges are valid. Your illnesses are valid. YOU ARE VALID. And when you tell yourself otherwise, you interrupt your healing. •
Bored. Waiting for my turn. Let’s make the world a better place.
Be more considerate; even in tiny lil ways.
Take care of that body odour.
Be less generous with that perfume.
Keep that halitosis in check.
Use foot spray.
Use odourless hair spray.
Chew gently, mouth closed—Never eat in an elevator.
Let others pass in front of you if you can afford it; on the road, in the mall, the toilet.
Low, or no volume OR use headphones when enjoying your entertainment in public.
Pressing the elevator button repeatedly doesn’t make it go any faster.
Let lift car passengers alight before you make your entrance.
Hold the door open for others.
Clean the table after you eat; or do whatever you can to reduce the mess. (Even at fancy restaurant.)
Sort out rubbish; your responsible garbage collectors DO go your garbage for recyclables.
Clean out recyclables (bottles and containers especially).
Practice good personal hygiene—wash hair often. Dirty head smells.
Be careful that your trolley doesn’t go close to the person in front. Pushing closer to him/her will make the queue measurably shorter but definitely not faster. And you could cause injury too.
Just be a good person, you stew pig fudge.
Tbh, these past few months have been stressful. Doubt. Fear. Anxiety. Rejection. It sucks… but I’m willing to endure it all to chase my dreams & be the #girlboss I always wanted to be.
But It’s about time I take time to relax & have quality with the fam before the holiday season!
So these next few days I’ll be doing just that. Living in the moment. Making memories. Taking time for myself & enjoying my family trip!
See ya in a few IG ✌🏻
got hit, knocked down, dragged by the worse 24 hour stomach bug yesterday. it was so not pretty. reflecting today, I can’t help but appreciate how illness brings you right back into your body. this moment. now. you can barely see 5 min ahead when you’re sick let alone a couple of days, weeks or years. it’s very centering. illness reminds us all our ‘have to’s’ are actually ‘get to’s’.🌿✨ I’m feeling much better. not a hundred percent but had enough steam to do so many little things I had been avoiding: make an appt for a mammogram. sent those checks out. filed three months of paperwork. ordered transcripts. so ummm.... yeah, thanks random bug for kicking my ass in more ways than one.😊😉
my greatest FEAR is to not be loved.
For years I had worked so hard at finding an “ideal” body type in the belief that it would make me be loved by someone. I think I’ve always been so scared because I’ve always thought my greatest purpose was to become a mom (someday). When it came to the 1st grade question, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” My answers came in this order:
1. Mom 👨👩👧👦
2. Bus driver 🚌
3. Mrs. Claus 🤶🏼
Why you ask? 🤷🏻♀️
You know...I’ve been thinking about that a lot lately. And what I realized is I chose my “future job” by the type people that my mom, bus driver and Mrs. Claus were...KIND. I wanted their job because they were happy...that was all I cherished to be.
Now Sammy G... how does this apply to being loved. Well because you see, I wanted to be like them not because of their looks or body but rather their sheer AUTHENTICITY. Their relentless joy and kindness. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I think too often we attach a certain body type to being loved BUT what we fail to see is that WE love the ones around us for SO MUCH MORE than that. And we will be and are loved for much much more than that.
The TRUTH ~
•You will be loved, in fact are loved ~ but you also need to begin to believe you are worthy of it too•
Just the way you are. 💕
SHARE, share, SHARE: What did you want to be growing up and why?? 🙋🏻♀️🙋🏻♀️🙋🏻♀️ or perhaps what is your greatest fear?
