As we celebrate your birth without you for the 10th year I am overwhelmed that I got to be your sister! God gave me 23 years with you. That’s a lot of laughs, tears, hugs and hurts. I am sad because I can’t hear your voice but mostly I am joyous... I never thought I would feel that way but I do... God chose to take you from this world and it has taught me so much and I am so grateful for the pain and ache of my heart because without suffering we can’t see the beauty that awaits us on the other side of it. I love you Lisa Emma. Now and forever and I am so thankful I get to call you my sister! Happy Birthday. 
To anyone who is grieving know that Jesus brings you rest. Joy comes in the morning and your hurt and ache will one day be thankfulness and joy. I am living proof! #griefandloss #griefjourney

You can change your beliefs. You can reduce stress and anxiety through beliefs, connection, and yes even food. Together is a combination that is a force like no other. In your journey to that moment will you then appreciate life even more.

Doing some #AstroTherapy, working through some of the old traumas in my life, marking the date(s) in the transits, and seeing how the Stars were engaging with my Cosmic Code.
⠀
One of the bigger pain points, a huge turning point in my life, was my dad passing.
⠀
This happened on June 2, 2003.
I was 14.
⠀
When I draw out the transits for this date to my natal chart, I see...
+ Transiting Chiron Rx is directly conjunct my natal Sun
+ Transiting Saturn is in my 8th House, at an exact semi-square to my natal Pluto
+ Pallas in my father's Sun Sign, Aries, which was also exactly inconjunct to my natal Pluto
+ Transiting Moon ran right over my natal Chiron
+ Transiting Jupiter just a degree away from an exact square to my natal Pluto
⠀
This circle tells me right away that this wasn't a great day, or a very positive, happy time for me, in general.
⠀
This is a time frame was one where I was experiencing deep wounds that would directly affect my most prominent traits + self.
⠀
There's a strong indication here with the second and third transits I listed that I was going to lose my father, even more specifically, to addiction/alcohol abuse.
⠀
This also triggered a deeper wound in my relationship with my biological mother, who still suffers from her addictions to this day. (Reflecting now, one of the first things that came out of my mouth when I got the news my father had passed was: "I need to go see my mom," who was in prison at the time.)
⠀
This presented an opportunity for me. A choice. Expand or contract. Understandably for a damaged 14 year old, I chose the latter.
⠀
Today, though, 15 years later, I can find more peace.
⠀
I've found many new stories and opportunities to cope with the loss of my father over the years, but I have to be honest: Nothing has brought me the kind of peace that Astrology has.
⠀
Because - call it what you will - this was a divinely intended story that was written in the Stars long before my father's passing. Before his birth, even.
⠀
It feels like there's more of a reason for losing a brilliant, warm, kind father at the age of 42.
⠀
And that brings me peace.

I’m honored to see @healingfootprints featured amongst this list of nonprofit organizations that cater to the needs of those experiencing grief after pregnancy and infant loss or struggles with infertility.
*
*
When I started Healing Footprints there were very few resources available. I’ve worked personally with some of these founders and I’m proud to see our community growing.
*
*
On Sunday, during a sermon about our emotional and mental health, my pastor asked... who motivates the motivator?! 🤔 Laboring in the infant loss community can be emotionally exhausting. And at times rather lonely. We pour our all into those that we serve and we sometimes have nothing left. We do so while reaching deep to understand our own healing and struggles with grief. When I search for ways to remain motivated, I find strength in the journey of many of these women and their dedication to others.
* *
Our organizations are all over the country and believe me... there are enough families in distress to make room for us all! I encourage you to support us. Go follow our IG pages (even if we’re struggling to be active 🙋🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️). Volunteer to further our mission. Attend our events. Donate to our causes. Keep us lifted with your encouragement and prayers.

We’ve each allowed one of our most painful life experiences to propel us to purpose.

1980’s Red Flannel Jacket.
.
When I have to wear my husbands 1980’s red flannel jacket, in August, while doing my morning devotions outside, I KNOW that the next season is making it’s way.  It’s a jacket that I have tried numerous times to sneak out of the house, because I KNEW, that another person needed it more than he did.😂 But in reality, I would definitely miss it’s warmth and comfort during my August early mornings. (I know that statement will come back to haunt me, because he surely will read this post😂)
.
Human nature is to stay where we “are” because it’s “comfortable”. We snuggle in and stay put. Life is wonderful, but could it be exceptional if we stepped outside our comfort zones and were doers of our lives?  Our calendars tell us that seasons change and each season brings its own beauty.  Our lives have those same seasons.  How can we make the best of the season that we are in, even if it’s not the season where we thought we would be?
.
Step outside your comfort zone.  Reach out to others, focus on them.  Re-energize your life! (If I had a graphic of the energizer bunny, I would drop it right here). The Lords plan for us is not a mundane life.  He wants us to have an ABUNDANT LIFE 🙌🏼 full of purpose and meaning. (John 10:10). And live it to the fullest.
.
Honesty: my mom passed away in June, completely out of the blue.  Our family was told she had a terminal illness 2.5 weeks prior to her passing.  This was/is a shock to my system and even as a DEVOUT Christian, this season has been extremely difficult for me.  It was discovered so late, we had such short notice.  This summer for a fact, I did not live my life abundantly.  I’ve been sad, missing my momma, but I KNOW KNOW KNOW that even in this season, the Lord is working in me and through me.  I don’t doubt it one bit.
.
Am I ready for the next season? Yes absolutely!  I’ll embrace the new season with open arms, while wearing my husbands 1980’s red flannel (needs to belong to someone else) comfy, outdated, not worn publicly jacket.  Bring it on!
.
Are you being a “doer” in your life?  How are you living your life to the fullest? Let’s dish!👇🏼

💞Embrace each season💞

Depression is hard.
It hits you when you least expect it.
This picture is hard. I see my own pain in it.
I woke up at 5 worked out and had a great morning and on my way to get coffee before work it hit me. It doesn’t always hit the same, today it was physical illness, exhaustion, and sadness. Out of no where... I ended up  going home instead and being 30 min late to work and now just trying to work through it. Somedays I feel like its ending... others I realize it’s still there.

Just some #onlinedating #inspiration for those single #widows who have pretty much been through hell and back. Dont entertain any thought of negativity someone has of you. What people think of you is none of your business. Respectfully move forward and clean it off.

How I got my Father Back part 2. During my personal grief story, I’ve had to really confront my father’s death for what it was and have had to stare at the impact that it had on my life. What I never wanted to do was sugar coat who my father was or put him up on a pedestal. But I still wanted to love him and be able to remember the good things about him. This was hard at first.

you’re not rich until you have something money can’t buy.🌜✨
One year ago, I took my first positive pregnancy test. I sort of stood there in disbelief because I had a few negatives before, so I took another one. I laid them out on the counter and waited for the hubs to get home & I asked him to come look at something for me in the bathroom. After seeing the sticks laying there, he looked back at me and I said something like “we’re going to be parents!” I’m not truly sure what I said, but I remember exactly where I was standing and the emotions I felt. Under our doorway and embracing.
•
That was the moment our parenthood journey began. With such bright, frightened, joyful eyes, we began to imagine this journey and life. Our innocent eyes looked ahead and began to plan traveling with our little babe, discussing new dreams, making memories at home. That was the moment we began raising our little one.
•
I am thankful to have such an amazing partner who looked out ahead at the future ahead with me and helped me stay present during my pregnancy. My hope is that we now can look ahead with wiser, more compassionate, more supportive eyes. To look ahead, look back and look around. For our baby girl, for ourselves.

Today is a momentous day as it is four and a half years since our Sterling's Homecoming to be with the Lord. And by no mistake is this the day we received our nonprofit status for The Sterling Rose Sanctuary.  It will be a place where an individual, a couple, or a family will be ministered to and given tools for their journey of grief. We have been given a beautiful picture of what The Sterling Rose Sanctuary is to encapsulate and are humbled by this calling and opportunity. We would greatly appreciate your prayers for our ministry as we seek to raise the necessary funds. Please share and  visit our website to learn more! www.thesterlingrosesanctuary

Feeling it hard today. ⠀
⠀
No Daddy to fuss over her Princess Anna braids. ⠀
⠀
The pressure I feel to be enough for them all. ⠀
⠀
The ‘no more baby’ phase. The whole ‘my oldest is almost 18’ thing. ⠀
Things change so fast. ⠀
Just feeling it all.

Writing in my prayer journal thanking God for how He is preparing me for my purpose and the real progress I am making. Years ago, I didn’t even realize I was making progress in my spiritual development. I didn’t understand the late night tossing and turning and  being fed up with what I was doing with my life and wanting to desperately find my purpose was “PROGRESS”. I didn’t understand the early morning reading of my bible and watching how God chose people who made mistakes and  bad choices BUT like me they humbly asked for forgiveness, help and guidance…was me making “PROGRESS”. Without even recognizing it I was taking destiny steps to fulfill my Purpose and I'm so grateful because God was preparing me even when my struggle didn’t make me feel like I was being Prepared!💪🏽

Two weeks. Two weeks ago this evening, I got the phone call from my husband, who could barely get the words out. “Dad’s dead.” I keep replaying that call over and over in my mind, multiple times a day. Just last night, one of our girls asked me, “Mommy, do you ever get scared?” How could I tell her that I’m terrified now every time the phone rings? That I’m scared to let her daddy go to work? That I don’t want him going to his mom’s and finding the unthinkable there? That I’m scared about myself? I am still very much in denial. I still haven’t grieved. And then all the thoughts that come from that. Yes, baby girl, I get scared. But the Bible tells me not to be. “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” (Timothy‬ ‭1:7‬) I need that sound mind. Oh Lord, please give me Your sound mind.

You've probably heard before that "You're the sum of the 5 people you spend the most time with."
.👩👨👩👨👩
I am IMMENSELY proud to say that one of my five is my son. 
See, one year ago •today• I pulled him out of his 1st day of 5th grade to go say "Goodbye" to his dad. Forever.
.
Dealing with baby daddy issues? I pray you never walk into a room and see him lying in a hospital bed with no life in his eyes. I didn't know that kind of agony existed 💔 .
There's no way to handle that "well," but I know that I certainly did not. I fell apart. Grief is a beast and it can turn ugly - quick. Flashbacks. Panic attacks. Anxiety and depression that ruled my every moment. There was no air 🚫
.
I thought the scars from this loss to be so damaging, I had the responsibility to stop ANY type of pain from coming near my boy EVER again. Talk about an impossible task - no wonder I was depressed 🙄
.
Until one day he asked to get a fish 🐟
NO WAY! Those things die so fast. We weren't going through that.
He just laughed. "Mom," he said "I lost my DAD. I think I can handle that." 😆
.
It took me 31 years to gain that kind of perspective and he mastered it in about a decade. He's not damaged. Or fragile. He's a freaking warrior 🏹
.
He taught me that we can handle ANYTHING. He is the strongest person I know. He inspired me to see that the worst moments of your life cannot last forever. That you can own and overcome your tragedies. You can laugh at the things that used to be scary. Because you've already seen hell up close and nothing can shake you now.
.
I learned that from a kid. MY kid. I may not know how just yet, but he's going to change the world 🌏

So I’m pretty sure that my mom was 36 for two years. My dad says no, but my sister and I believe otherwise. Either way, I remember her mid-late thirties as the “best of times”. No care in the world...
.
We didn’t know what true stress was until right about this time, years later. Headaches started out of no where and a “cold” that lasted for 6 months from this photo...lung cancer that was the size of an orange. Stage four. For the next 5 years until she went to Heaven THAT WAS TRUE STRESS. {yes, the grief that comes after is too, but a different kind i think}
.
As I get closer and closer to her age when it happened, things start creeping up in my mind. Am I gonna get it? How can I stop it? Are these MY “best of times”? .
.

While I think it’s okay and normal to question everything: life, the future, the past...God, I don’t want to live like that. .
.

Everyday I don’t want to worry that this year the real bomb will be dropped. I don’t want to go to bed every night thinking about when it will be “my turn”. .
.

So at 36 (and yes maybe I’ll be 36 for two years too 🤫), I’m deciding that this year and ALLLLL the years after will be my best time. No matter what. .
.

And I’ll take care of my body as best as I can because I know we only get one. And be the best stinking role model for my family. Because that’s literally all I can do. And I know my mom would want that for me...💕

On a weekend road trip, this song “Anthem”, by Leonard Cohen came onto the radio in the car. It was ages since I last heard the song. It was a stark reminder of how we deal with our pain as a society. We have become a society of constantly trying to fix, perfect, gloss over, hide and deny. When we don’t do that, we dwell in the heartache and pain. When did that happen?! When we did stop seeing the struggles and imperfections as doorways to a deeper and more meaningful existence, and dare I say, as beautiful? What I love most about my work as a therapist, is seeing my clients begin to look at their “cracks” as a doorway to change. As a way to shift perspective, and therefore, create beauty out of the pain. It doesn’t happen over night of course, but there is a miraculous “gradual instant”, when it finally becomes clear, the strength within, to make choices that reflect who they are becoming. It’s humbling and inspiring to witness. It’s not easy. It’s not some poetic and fairytale-like transition in most cases. It does take hard work, patience, perseverance, sometimes kicking and screaming through the moments it feels too hard to bear. But the intensity of the pain always passes. Always. It transmutes into something stronger and it allows freedom, beauty and new opportunities to come in. ..
If you’re feeling the cracks, I invite you to try to see them with eyes of compassion and tenderness. You have the power to use the pain as a catalyst for beautiful changes in your life. You don’t have to do it alone, and you don’t have to do it until you’re ready, but the rewards far, far outweigh the pain you’re feeling. Let’s find a way to let the light in. .. #usethepainforgood #cracksarehowthelightgetsin #seekmeaning #changecanbegood #happinesscomesfromwithin #alchemy #psycotherapy #psychotherapist #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #vulnerability #depressionrelief #grief #griefjourney #holdon #usethetools #hope #perserverance #selfdiscovery #selflove #embrace #resilience #tenacity #commitment #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthadvocate #anxietyrelief #innsofaurora #aurorany

What To Say Tip: If you don't know what to say then share a favorite memory with someone about their loved one. In turn, I love when someone shares a favorite about my loved one memory with me. This helps a griever's heart to heal.

Just DO it.  Live fully today, love big, dream hard nothing is too big, face your fears, they are mostly an illusion, and feel gratitude for what you have and will have.  Life is precious. ❌⭕️ #worthywidow #lovefearlesslylivefully #selfworthbuildsresilience
💔Have you had enough of the pain of grief? ✨Are you wondering how you can continue with life without your loved one by your side?
⚡️Are the waves of emotion too much to bear? 💔Does the hole in your heart feel too big?

This is how I felt after my two miscarriages, it was the start of my awakening. On the floor screaming and talking to God who I didn’t even believe in!! The ‘why me’s’ and ‘how much more do you want me to take’?! The pain of not wanting to live any more and wanting to take my life but, being in that moment something washed over me to support me and I really felt it. The knowing that I had to continue for my children on Earth. The feeling of being held. 
The reason for my being here to show others that there’s something much bigger than we could ever imagine at play. The Universe /Source /God whatever you want to call it is here to support us, you just have to allow it in for it is within us anyway. 
Have you ever felt this way? ❤️Are you ready to allow? 🧡Are you ready to listen? 💛Are you ready to go within? 💚Are you open for change?
💙Are you ready to start living again?
✨
I can honestly say that I have no regrets about any of my past. I rarely get those waves of emotion. I’m the happiest today that I have ever been and you can be too. I am proof that you don’t have to live with the pain forever however,
✨
I am far from judgmental for we are all on our own journey’s but if you’d like to book a free 30 min call with me to see if I can support you through your grief and loss then book using the link in the bio 👆🏻

My favorite thing that has happened to me the last two years since I’ve committed to this lifestyle?

Hands down, that I’ve changed physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. 
I was always always always the girl that ONLY cared about losing weight and being skinny. I thought that would solve all of life’s problems and make me the happiest gal on earth. 
While this journey has helped me lose the unwanted weight I carried for years, my favorite changes have occurred within. 
I never thought that working out from home and eating clean foods would motivate me to have more productive, spiritual mornings. 
Jesus Calling devotions, the Bible, writing, & reading personal development are my jam. They help me get EXCITED to wake up in the morning. They put me in such a positive, relaxing state to start my day — and with the season of life I’m in, I desperately need that. 
I don’t know how on earth I would have went through my father’s grief, battling my own depression, and becoming a mom without the help of my mornings and my exercise and health. 
I really don’t know if I would have had the courage to get help — and luckily I’ll never know. 
I remind myself daily that this is MY life. My dreams. My adventures. 
It is so important to find what FUELS you. I’m  forever thankful that this opportunity has done just that for me — it has sparked a passion inside of me that I didn’t know existed. 
Just remember — 
Be open.  Be vulnerable. And find your passion. 
It will be the best blessing you ever give yourself — that I can promise you. .

We are going to die, and that makes us the lucky ones. Most people are never going to die because they are never going to be born. The potential people who could have been here in my place but who will in fact never see the light of day outnumber the sand grains of Arabia. Certainly those unborn ghosts include greater poets than Keats, scientists greater than Newton. We know this because the set of possible people allowed by our DNA so massively exceeds the set of actual people. In the teeth of these stupefying odds it is you and I, in our ordinariness, that are here.We privileged few, who won the lottery of birth against all odds, how dare we whine at our inevitable return to that prior state from which the vast majority have never stirred?

I open the cap and breathe in deeply.

It's your favourite scent. The perfume you wore for my entire life. The bottle I bought you for christmas but that you never got to open.

But it's not quite your smell. It doesn't have the smell of your freshly washed hair, or the tumble dried clothes against your skin. Or the smell of black coffee. Or the particular brand of cigarettes you used to smoke - the only cigarettes in the world I actually like the smell of.

It's just a bottle of your favourite perfume. 
And I will treasure it always.

“pain that is not allowed to be spoken or expressed turns in on itself, and creates more problems. unacknowledged & unheard pain doesn’t go away. the way to survive grief is by allowing pain to exist, not in trying to cover it up or rush through it.
you never ‘get over it’, - you ‘get on with it,’ & you never ‘move on,’ but you ‘move forward.’” #grief #griefsupport #griefquotes #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #griefjourney

6 months, 26 weeks, 181 days. 6 months since you couldn't bear your pain any longer. 6 months since your depression took you from us. 6 months that have been the longest of my life. 6 months that with each passing day I miss you more and more. 6 months that I didn't think would be possible to bear, and yet here I am still standing. I am not the same person as I was 6 months ago, nor will ever be again, but I have survived. 💜💕 #suicideawareness #suicideprevention #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #depression #grief #griefjourney #personalblog

Taking a chance on love after loss is terrifying.  So is the prospect of being alone forever or living a half life. To live (and love) fully requires taking the leap of faith, even if it sometimes means falling.

This is beautiful. Literally how it feels approaching Gavin’s birthday. Being only the second year of this, I’m sure I already know this answer, but does this ever get any better? Emotional roller coaster and complete heightened awareness about everything going on... I already realize that the birthday month must be the most reflective month of the year from now on, and you sure will feel immense anxiety if you are not accomplishing anything specifically in honor of your child by the time it’s their birthday, because damnit- you’re going to do do SOMETHING with the love that still lives inside... What a mess. I’m thankful for my comforting Savior, who is holding my hand through it all, but I’m looking at his arm, wondering why he didn’t reach a little further that day. I just know that he truly is holding mine, and I wouldn’t be ‘walking’ at all if it weren’t for him. 💛🐘#takecomfort #takecouragemyheart #griefjourney #grievingmother #birthdayinheaven #holdon #hesinthewaiting #jesusculture #yourtimesnotup #lorichristopher

I thought I saw your face today,
in the sparkle of the morning sun.
And then I heard the angel say,
“Their work on earth is done.” I thought I heard your voice today,
then laugh your hearty laugh.
And then I heard the angel say,
“There’s peace dear one at last.” I thought I felt your touch today,
in the breeze that rustled by.
And then I heard the angel say,
“The spirit never dies.” I thought I saw my broken heart,
in the crescent of the moon.
And then I heard the angel say,
“The Lord is coming soon.” I thought that you had left me,
for the stars so far above.
And then I heard the angel say,
“They left you with their love.” I thought that I would miss you so,
and never find my way.
And then I heard the angel say,
“They’re with you every day.”
“The sun, the wind, the moon, the stars,
will forever be around,
reminding you of the love you shared,
and the peace they’ve finally found.

💪🏻After a two and a half week emotional workout hiatus, it was good to know my lungs and legs still work. 🏃🏻‍♀️ 🐰On tonight’s run I came across two bunnies. One white and one brown. I couldn’t help thinking about my Mamasita and Sam when I saw them. The white bunny reminded me of my Mamasita, an angel in heaven and Sam who is still with us for a few more days reminded me of the brown bunny, probably because that is what color she is.🐶 💕I couldn't help to feel comforted when I saw these two bunnies together. I felt a sense that everything is going to be okay, even though the thought of losing Sam feels unbearable and anticipation of my Mamasita’s Birthday coming up in a couple days causes some anxiety. 😌 Although, I do believe God crossed the bunnies in my path tonight an allowed me to have the image that I did to assure me, that I will be okay. 😇🐾🐾🐾 And when I needed it most I have people who do and say the right thing at the most perfect time. 🙏🏻 Expressing some concerns about my training my coach wrote me these words,” The only other thing I can tell you is to use that emotion you have in you during these difficult times to fuel your workouts. Use them to celebrate life and all the great people you have in your life. It will make all the difference in each and every day. You are one of a kind. Don’t forget that.” 😊God continues to take care of me. Every day. He is faithful. I am blessed by people who encourage me with such positive words. Thank you Coach Ron. 🙏🏻 #ironty #imchoo #ironmantraining #run #triathlete #ketoathlete #ketotriathlete #ketorunner #strava #godisgood #godisfaithful #nevergiveup #griefrecovery #tryingtofindmysmile #griefjourney

Yesterday made 1 year since we dropped Garrett off at school and the memories have flooded my mind. I should be use to these pictures by now. I took them throughout that day a year ago. I’ve seen them a million times. These photos became the symbol of your bond after the crash and the news had them plastered everywhere. 
I also realized last night that you should be joining Nick and your other friends in starting back to class today. That startling fact drew out the remaining air that I had on reserve. I have felt like I was suffocating all day today. It isn’t a new experience for me and I suspect this burning in my lungs is here to stay. I love you boys and I miss you more than words say. 💙❤️ #7poppies #thegraceseeker #bondofbrothers💙❤️ #griefjourney #grief #myboys #mamagrief #lifejourney #griefsupport #griefandloss #forever20 #forever18 #grievingmom #siblinggrief #siblinglove #grievingmother #bigbros #life #ourtribe #grievingparents

Look for me in Rainbows Time for me to go now, I won't say goodbye; Look for me in rainbows, way up in the sky. 
In the morning sunrise when all the world is new, Just look for me and love me, as you know I loved you. Time for me to leave you, I won't say goodbye; Look for me in rainbows, high up in the sky. 
In the evening sunset, when all the world is through, Just look for me and love me, and I'll be close to you. It won't be forever, the day will come and then My loving arms will hold you, when we meet again. 
Time for us to part now, we won't say goodbye; Look for me in rainbows, shining in the sky. 
Every waking moment, and all your whole life through Just look for me and love me, as you know I loved you. Just wish me to be near you, And I'll be there with you. - Vicki Brown

Always moving forward...I’ve stubbled, but I’ve never given up on this crazy grief journey.  As  cloudy as it 
became, I searched for the clarity. I have grown, I am still standing....and you will too....promise.❤️

Tyler,
Several months ago you sent me a text to let me know ELO was coming to Dallas and told me to “get tickets!”. Well buddy, tonight is the concert and your sister is with me in honor of you...sitting in your seat. You loved all of my 70’s and 80’s bands...and were so excited to see them play in concert. Tonight is for you buddy....we love you and miss you beyond measure.
Love forever,
Mom (& Sav)

My trainer has me doing static squats this month. I hate them but I love seeing and feeling progress! Today was weights workout 7 for the month and I almost made it through the whole set before my legs gave out.
Progress is so motivating for me! I have a hard set of runs this week but my mental and physical gains over the last several weeks tell me that I can do whatever I throw myself into! #runningstrong #griefjourney #runtoremember

Today I celebrated 365 days since my sudden cardiac arrest, so my "death day" as @jacobwebbbbb called it. There are more than 356,000 out of hospital SCA each year in the US and only a small fraction of them survive. God's not done with me yet! I may not understand God's plan for me, but one day it will be revealed! #survivor #andthebeatgoeson #griefjourney #missmyboy #alwaysonmymind #foreverinmyheart #forever23 #savemeaseatinheaven  #godsgotthis  #hesgotthewholeworldinhishands

I'm finally taking the time to really go through my wedding photos. This shot by @plate_3 makes me feel something special. And duh its also just a sweet photo of me in a dress that I'm obsessed with. But here are the reasons I really love it...
.
.
A) My back looks jacked 😀😂
B) It reminds me of how hard we had to work to get to this day. Month after month we were pummeled with the most painful obstacles. But we decided that our wedding had to happen and we hoped it would be healing and a true celebration of us and our families. Which brings me to..
C) This image reflects some of the unbelievable support we received from our friends and family. My great friend @plate_3 came early to shoot our rehearsal dinner, my babe @dinahraphaelle just casually offered to do my hair and makeup on Friday night in addition to the wedding day. @max_levelfitness wrote me a really thoughtful  and manageable program (hence the jacked back)
.
.
And literally so so many more friends and family made this wedding happen and helped us to feel not just happy but elated when sadness was hovering so nearby. I will likely highlight all of them over the next few weeks, because ♥️
.

Anyway...yay for marriage and hypertrophy 😊

I have a saying I say with my son 💙 every night. And he repeats after me #Goodnight Moon, Goodnight Stars,...Goodnight my Son (Sun) ... you are my Sonshine
When I lost my husband and my first son to miscarriage I never thought I could love a man again. But my Son has taught me how to love and be the mom I needed to be for all my children. And tonight i see my Scott and my son’s brother watching over us in the sky Goodnight Moon Goodnight Stars Goodnight My Sons 💙💙💫💫

Waiting ever so patiently for his best friend 💙 “I can see them mom!!” •
•
Meanwhile I was having my heart shredded, as I tried to avoid the mom with the newborn girl the exact age Anna would have been. I know because they couldn’t stop talking about it, as I stared into the brick wall willing myself to become deaf in that moment •
•
Then I made eye contact with some parents who don’t know what happened. Or maybe they do. I don’t even know who falls into that category. Then the teacher told me she read the card I gave her, that explained why Sawyer might talk about death and his baby sister very freely this year. And then I basically ran off the school grounds crying •
•
And most people probably thought it was first day jitters. But this is just another first day without my baby. It’s emotionally, mentally and physically draining. And it’s the rest of my life. So even though I post these sweet moments in front of my screen, I’m barely hanging on behind it. • #achristensenfirstdayofschool #lifeafterstillbirth

Dylan - preK | Morgan - 4th | Taylor - 7th

I can’t believe this is the last, 1st day of preschool EVER. 
And the last time they are going to be in 3 different schools. 😢 Morgan cried last night.
😎 Taylor was totally fine! 😭 Dylan sobbed with each sister leaving and then cried at his own drop off. 
And of course Mommy cried too! 
Oh my heart. 
I hope it gets easier for all of us!

Happy BACK TO SCHOOL!
Did your kids go back to school today too?

I don’t know about you but for me.. allowing others to love me is hard. I have major anxiety about it.. as I have been hurt over and over by people whom I love or who “supposedly” love me. So, how do we go about doing this? 
For me it’s letting people help me, hug me, talk to me and most of all letting down my wall of thorns. It’s hard and I’m still a work in progress. With my dad it was easy to be loved by him... for the rest of the people in my life it’s hard to actually believe they love me.. really, it comes down to me loving myself now on my own.. I don’t have the consistent calls from my dad telling me I’m loved. I now know why I have gotten this far and it’s because he let me know daily without hesitation i was loved..I miss that incredibly and there is no one else to replace that. Now, we see if all those times will be enough for me to love myself on my own.. .

The only person responsible for your happiness is YOU! Your life is entirely up to YOU!

YOU get too choose what each day brings.
YOU have control of the lies you tell yourself.

If YOU want to go to a new place, 
if you want to crush some huge goals, 
if you want to take yourself away from where you are now, 
YOU have to stop telling yourself you aren’t good enough. 
Everything you think you can’t do, YOU CAN! Repeat after me......YES I CAN!

Stop putting yourself down, stop allowing others to put you down, stop telling yourself NO, and start telling yourself YES!

Allow yourself to become the person you were meant to be, for YOU! No one else! 
If you know you can do more, then DO MORE!
If you know you can be more, then BE MORE!
If you know you deserve better, then BE BETTER!

Don’t allow yourself to be stuck, keep moving forward!
Life is a journey, keep learning and growing! You can become whoever and what ever you want to become!

My challenge groups is full of peeps getting ready to overcome their own doubts. Today is their day 1! When will be your day 1? I have two spots left for this one, tell yourself this is your time and join us!
Link in bio or comment below with a ❤️ and send you all the details!

❤️ This right here.
A game changer for so much more than just pizza. I’ve used this for wraps this week and I am hooked!

Wraps for lunch, 
wraps for breakfast with eggs, 
As a roll for turkey burgers,
you name it, 
this will make your meal and make you feel like you’re having bread! 
Not that there’s anything wrong with bread, but, this right here is a game changer for cutting back on those unnecessary and not so healthy carbs.

I’ve also tried tons of different cauliflower crusts out there and none of them are like this! And let’s face it, making it from scratch is a PITA!

I love that the ingredients in this one is nothing but cauliflower, egg and Parmesan cheese!

@outeraislegourmet you nailed it!
I am Buying them In bulk!
And you should too!

Do like Cauliflower crust?
