What are my current goals? ⁣⁣
I’m intentionally keeping these very simple and not letting myself try to change everything overnight. I haven’t had an exercise routine or healthy eating focus for the past three months. And once these habits are broken - I find them difficult to get back!⁣⁣
⁣⁣
So to get back in the swing of things and break some bad habits that are sneaking in, this is it:⁣⁣
⁣⁣
💛 move for 30 minutes a day. ⁣⁣
💛 eat until I’m full then stop - (reminding myself that I do not need to finish a whole plate).⁣⁣
💛 minimise treat foods - slowly removing them as daily snacks, and swapping them with better choices. ⁣⁣
💛 choosing food that I know makes me feel good - aka nourishing foods that don’t upset my stomach. ⁣⁣
💛 take my probiotic + enzymes - digestive issues are no fun. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
5 little things that make big changes when consistently focused on. What are your goals? ⁣

"Soooo...I LOVE MY BUSINESS CARD DESIGN. Just so you know, I seriously have not had proper branded cards forever and I'm really happy I'm finally going to!"
⠀⠀⠀
Loved working with @onecraftymissblog on her business cards and can't believe it took me forever to just feature them! 💛🤪Oops!
⠀⠀⠀
Question to ponder: Before you sell to your clients are you sold on you? On your brand? Let's build that confidence for the new year and you know, if you've been in business for a while now and still don't feel like you have a brand, it just could be the missing piece to the next level of growth in your biz! 🌟🥰
⠀⠀⠀
But first, tell me, what are YOUR brand colours?! ⚪️⚫️🔴🔵 It's like asking someone what's their favourite flavour of ice cream. 🍦Can't be helped!! .

Deal With It • To be honest, it has taken some time to sincerely wrap my mind around my DIAGNOSIS. I have been facing one life changing challenge after another... so it feels like just another mountain I have to climb.

I guess you could say I’m a little obsessed with the #snow ❄️ right now. And maybe it’s because it’s all new to my #puppy 🐶 & her #wonder is just simply adorable... or maybe it’s simply because I’m fascinated with the fresh... clean... pure white blanket it leaves behind over the #earth . Either way, I have to admit, I don’t mind bundling up & heading out in it to follow behind these little paw prints 💗🐾 💗🐾 💗🐾 💗🐾 💗

Visual branding is EXCITING! It’s like a makeover for your brand. New beginnings. A clean slate. But be warned!

A logo simply cannot be relied upon to be the be-all and end-all of your visual branding personality. Sorry to burst your bubble.

Your logo is a mark, symbol or icon that your audience can associate with your brand. I get it... it’s so tempting to try to include as much of your brand story into your logo as possible, but this could result in confusion and clutter.

And this, my friends, is why I develop your branding foundation with colour, illustrated branding elements and imagery to create a holistic vision. Your logo complements these elements and holds them all together like glue. You can use strong branding elements alongside your logo to create all the feels of your brand... and this gives your logo space to breathe, without neglecting your story. Make sense? Clear as mud?

DM me to find out how we can work together to create a branding foundation for you that sends your unique message and attracts your tribe. ✌️

Thanksgiving week is here!! The Lord tells us that in all things, we should give thanks. That means in all seasons of life - the hard and the good, the sick and the healthy, the meager and the plentiful - give thanks. How is this possible for us, especially in those times where we are struggling whether it be with health, finances, relationships, etc? We can give thanks because JESUS is on the throne, Death has been defeated, the GRAVE has been conquered, and the war with SIN has been WON!! We are victorious through everything BECAUSE of what Jesus accomplished on the Cross. Meditate on this tonight and as Thanksgiving week continues, count every single additional blessing God has given to you...and you will find that you are over and abundantly blessed ☀️

Bought donut pans and have two different kinds the past two nights!

Last night was banana donuts (no sugar, oil or eggs) with a chocolate glaze and tonight was Snickerdoodle protein donuts!

The girls are loving them!

We can go to battle with human reason and logic. We can work tirelessly to overcome pain and sorrow. And we can go to war with a heart of pride.  When we fail, we can numb our wounds with bitterness and addiction. Or we can pick up the sword of the Spirit, the Word of God, and fight. [link in profile to read blog]

Finally finished that awesome book by Dallas Willard “Hearing God” and I got so much out of it. If you’re a book lover and someone who wants to develop a conversational relationship with God then it’s worth reading for sure. .
.
Here’s some key points from the book:
.
.
🌿God isn’t a mumbling trickster. He can and will communicate clearly and plainly to you and he wants to 💗
.
🌿Studying the scriptures is vital to knowing the thoughts and the heart of God and he speaks to you through your thoughts and your heart
.
🌿There are times when we want specific details for the “right steps to take” and sometimes God waits for us to choose the way forward and take risks with him. He’s always there to help and no experience is ever wasted. There are also times where we really need to listen carefully and pay attention to know the steps to take but there comes a point where if we haven’t received the specifics, we can move forward trusting him to guide us. .
.
.
🌿It all comes down to experience when it comes to learning to know and recognise the voice of God speaking to our hearts and minds. It’s a journey and we develop that sensitivity over time as we sow into our relationship with him.
.
.
.
It was a really helpful and affirming book and it really demystified the art of hearing God speak to us. There’s really nothing weird or difficult about hearing him speak, it just takes time and experience and we need to keep a listening ear towards him throughout the day. .
.
Do you feel like hearing God is hard or unattainable? I’m interested to hear what your experience has been....

Working hard to get my life squared away so I can sign-off FOR GOOD this week and enjoy MY 🍂ABSOLUTE FAVORITE HOLIDAY🍂 in the mountains with my family 🙌⠀
⠀
Anyone else LOVE Thanksgiving (even more than Christmas😳)?⠀
⠀
Here's how I explain it when people do a double take: Thanksgiving kicks off the excitement of the holiday season, but when Christmas comes around, it's all over. I love Thanksgiving because it is basically the gatekeeper to all things festive and Christmas. It's the catalyst for Christmas cheer!⠀
⠀
(And chill! Yes, I love Christmas too, because Jesus — but Thanksgiving still takes the cake as far as celebrating goes!)

After starting a whole home remodel last April, going thru more ups and downs than should be legal 😜, so excited to be in the final stages of redecorating!! What makes it so very special is that I've been able to spend many days and hours shopping with my sweet mother! Love having her in Texas with me!! ❤

Today I’m SO very thankful for the insanely awesome company I get to work for, @daycloudstudios! My co-workers are some of the funniest, best people I know & I am SOOO forever grateful that on a moment’s notice, my boss let’s me work from home so I can make sure my kiddo doesn’t catch a bug at daycare.
.
It doesn’t hurt that my “office” or nook as I so sweetly refer to it as, looks this pretty. Now...it doesn’t always look this clean, but it’s always flooded with sunshine!
.
I’d love to hear what you’re thankful for this Monday! Leave a note below & tell me ❤️

I wasn't going to work out tonight.
I didn't feel like it.
But to be honest, I don't want to struggle on January 1 to start over like I've done in the past.🤦‍♀️
.
I'm not always motivated.
I don't always want to. Rarely, actually. 😂
The next few months are going to be HARD af to stay on track!
I just made a commitment to myself that I wouldn't quit.
.
So, here we go.🤞 #43daysleft #changeorstaythesame #timewillpassanyway ❤

I knew I wanted to read "The Ministry of Ordinary Places" by @shannanwrites but when I started it, I suddenly felt like should start with her first book, since she was a new-to-me author. I'm really glad I did. This book is confronting and convicting. It's making me reflect on my actions and my view of my life and my privilege, and it's reminding me what Jesus is really all about.

My life has been put on hold since January. Wedding plans have been thrown to the wind; my savings for a home has been burned by medical debt; my biological clock is ticking loudly; and my career put on the back burner. I don’t feel like myself these days... I don’t even think normally anymore. I just hope that I make it through this and magically be able to pick my life back up from where I left it. •  #melanomawarrior #fuckcancer #cancersucks #cancerstory #chemobrain #exhausted #tired #wellnessjourney #lovelife #gritandgrace #thesunistryingtokillus #wearsunscreen #reapplysunscreen #melanoma #skincancer #notjustskincancer #cancer #cancerfighter #cancerwarrior #immunotherapy #quotestoliveby #quotes #livelifenow

My sweet friend @ariannafreelen @choosingfreelen penned these words and I just had to share. If you don’t follow her, go now! Her heart and passion flow through the words. .
I truly believe as women we underestimate our strength and our resolve.
We are strong.
We are fierce.
.
Rise up, girls!

They're not a full time thing {yet} but these bad boys certainly make driving (and watching movies) a heck of a lot clearer!

I'm lucky that I haven't needed glasses my whole life but there are a lot of kids who need them and don't have access to glasses. So I've partnered with @pearlevision 👉 For every 10 unique pictures posted with #RaiseYourGlasses, Pearle Vision will make a donation to ensure a child in need is able to see clearly.

What is your glasses story? Share it and don't forget to use the tag: #RaiseYourGlasses  #sponsored

Morning! Finally got through some repeated errors to share my newest favorites! #alisonbellphotog
Morning! Finally got through some repeated errors to share my newest favorites! #alisonbellphotog 
Two nights ago I text Daniel from upstairs and asked him if he could bring me an extra blanket... Then promptly started to fall asleep. 
A couple moments later, half out of it, I felt him covering me up and tucking the blanket around me. 
I've lived off of that moment the last couple of days...because it truly embodies who Daniel is. 
My covering, security, and warmth 
He's my gentle giant. 
He has always surrounded me, known and unknown with prayer and concern. Always gives me advice. Always answers my questions. Challenges me to go where I've never gone before. He loves me and loves me well and deeply. 
Its hard to describe in this little Instagram box, but I am thankful for Daniels never ending love for me. 
He is the greatest example I have ever had as to how our heavenly father loves us. 
He forever has patience with me, forever loves me, forever gives me chance after chance. 
I am thankful literally every day for God bringing this man into my life 7 1/2 years ago. I am thankful for the trials and immense pain he had to traverse to become who he is today. I'm thankful that he is not fearful. He is not common. He is not a lamb. 
He is fierce and passionate and compassionate. He's a fearless leader, asking for forgiveness when he fails and accepting praise when he rises above. 
This man, my man, is unbelievably incredible.

Two nights ago I text Daniel from upstairs and asked him if he could bring me an extra blanket... Then promptly started to fall asleep. A couple moments later, half out of it, I felt him covering me up and tucking the blanket around me. I've lived off of that moment the last couple of days...because it truly embodies who Daniel is. My covering, security, and warmth He's my gentle giant. He has always surrounded me, known and unknown with prayer and concern. Always gives me advice. Always answers my questions. Challenges me to go where I've never gone before. He loves me and loves me well and deeply. Its hard to describe in this little Instagram box, but I am thankful for Daniels never ending love for me.

I wish I was better at this. I wish it was easier for me. But the truth is, it is beyond difficult for  our tiny human brains to grasp onto the fact that God will indeed show up for us when we  need Him, even though He has proven Himself to us time and time again. There are moments we doubt Jesus’ faithfulness when we really should be taking a look at our own.
•
•
It is in these moments we need to be bold in our faith and solid in our trust for His will over our lives. Next time we find ourselves waiting on God’s next move, I pray that we will pour out our gratitude over what He has already done in praise and worship for who He is. That we go a little deeper in our prayers; praying for revolutionary miracles to take place in our life. That we spend that extra little bit of time soaking up and gaining full understanding of what is in our Bibles. That we make loving and serving OTHERS a priority.
•
•
It is this extra effort, this hunger for who He is, this building of faith that will grow in us, a perseverant heart. It will give us the hope we need to be content in the hallway and it will prepare us for the abundant blessings that will be found just on the other side of that door He, in his incredibly perfect timing, will soon open. 🗝

What are you doing now that you never would’ve imagined even 3 years ago?
🤔
I met this amazing woman 2.5 years ago at a Bible study at the school I went to from K-8th grade. I remember thinking she was so strong, assured, and had everything together – especially for her age. As we got to know each other, I could see her hunger to completely open herself up to any life God had for her. 🌎
It’s crazy how much has changed since I was in her Bible study. As we caught up over lunch yesterday, she told me how she’s now sold the bulk of her belongings, is training her replacement at work, and is nearly ready to move across the world into a completely different life to follow God’s plan for her life. We laughed that when she moved here 3.5 years ago, she would never have believed that this would be her next chapter in life. Such an inspiration to keep moving forward diligently in faith. You just never know how your life can change.

1000% YESSSSS!!!! 💗💗💗 What if the only thing you were afraid of was being in the EXACT same place?

Like you just committed to yourself that you would NEVER... 💗Be stagnant and not take some sort of action (**That ANY action was better than no action) 💗That there was no such thing as failure (**Just figuring out what works for you and what doesn't - no judgment required) 💗That learning NEW skills were part of the process (**And you committed to it EVERY. DAMN. DAY. A video here, a podcast there - nothing crazy - just daily effort). How would your life change?

"Your circle should want to see you win. Your circle should clap loudly when you have good news. Your circle should be consistent & true through the bad. And ALWAYS want the best for you. If not, get a new circle."
.
Beyond blessed to have these two beautiful ladies in my life. It's rare to know 100% that someone wants nothing but the best for you. But I know it about these two, & it brings such security to know that they will always have my back... even when it's turned. They know my failings yet remind me of my worth. They know when to be silent and let me have my moments, lol, because the good ones are always more abundant than the bad. Jealousy is nonexistent and left for the birds. And not getting stuck into predetermined molds & making beautiful memories is always the goal.
.
I love you ladies, what a great weekend. Here's to many more 🥂💛

Change is a funny thing. I often crave it but once it starts to happen, it's terrifying. Next week I go back to in-office work after working remotely for the last few months and I'm truthfully pretty scared.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Don't get me wrong, I'm so thankful. I'm so glad I get to do what I do and to start an exciting new position. But, yes, it's nervewracking.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What's keeping me going is this: storytelling + social media= social change. I'm trusting that I'll get to make a difference in someone's life from work and from home. My blog is my baby. It's not going anywhere. Instead, I feel even more excited about the opportunity to share with you all as I learn more about the social media world.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I believe we each have the potential to bring about social change, even if it only affects one person. Our platforms may be small, but if we reach at least one person, it's enough. How are you using your influence to benefit others? I'd love to hear!

Our daughter recently introduced me to the Tauren Wells' album, "Hills and Valleys" - I absolutely love it (which is a good thing, because Sarai wants to play it constantly) yet, I woke up this morning with a song on my heart.
•
"God's not done with you" is a beautiful, and powerful song that will literally speak to the very depths of your soul. But, there is one line that brings so much truth to our walk through life - whether Christian or not.
•
”There's a light you don't notice until you're standing in the dark”
•
This is so profoundly true.
•
As an unbeliever, it's not until our world is rocked in some way that we usually start to seek...to ask questions...to search...and realise that we've actually been living in spiritual darkness up until that point, because of the discoveries, once we find God.
•
But, as a believer, although we have found "the light," this world has an amazing ability to suck us back into its vortex.
•
Yet, no matter what the wounds, the scars we have, the battles we have lost, the ruins we stand in - God's not done with you. We may have made another bad choice, decision, regret, but it's from our ashes that God brings beauty. He restores. He awakens our soul to His redemptive love.
•
No matter where we are in life, this could be the beginning. A new chapter. A story of God's unfailing grace - if only we would allow Jesus to begin our story, the way it should be, because it's certainly not over yet.
•
"For the light makes everything visible. This is why it is said, “Awake, O sleeper, rise up from the dead, and Christ will give you light.” Ephesians‬ ‭5:14‬

The work doesn't begin until you get tired. - @shaunt  TRUTH!  If you're not pushing and challenging yourself to grow and become the best you can be, then whats the point? 
It will hurt.
It will take time.
It will require dedication.
It will require willpower.
It requires sacrifice.
There will be temptation.
But, I promise you, when you reach your goal, it WILL be worth it.

Two years ago, I would have taken the week off and stop working on my fitness until after Thanksgiving.  The new me is like WHY in the freaking world would I want to do that??!! Bring on the sweat!  Bring on the GOOD FEELS!

It’s been a while since I’ve done a #MondayCoffeeDate (who remembers them? 🙋🏽‍♀️)... for anyone who doesn’t know, I used to do this every Monday to chat about anything I would if I was on a coffee date with you, making this app a bit more personal. This Monday, since it’s been so long, I’d like to just ask about you! I’d love to hear a random fact or recent personal victory, or anything you’ve been learning lately, or your favorite holiday tradition, anything at all 🥰

The end of an era. The home my parents built 25 years ago.
🏡
The home we had youth nights in, brought our first born home to, watched my brother marry my sis-in-love... these walls have heard every conversation under the sun, laughter, tears and so much more.
But what this house always was to every person who walked through the doors was HOME because it was filled with Jesus and with people who welcomed and loved on people the way Jesus asked us to.
✨
Now, my parents will create the same HOME in Franklin, TN. And although we are so sad this door is closing, we are so expectant for what’s to come!

✔️Half Marathon Saturday
✔️Marathon Sunday.
✔️Liberty Bell Challenge = completing both half & full
✔️Keystone Challenge = Pittsburgh & Philadelphia
(Looking forward to receiving the other ‘western’ half)
.
.
I held back during Saturday’s half (1:40:46) to conserve for the full, in hopes of pulling out a sub 320.
✨3:13:57✨ WOW. 
Can’t help but think “How much faster could I have run if I didn’t already have 13 miles on my legs?“ Welp! I guess we will find out in 💛🦄💙BOSTON. 💛🦄💙 (Sub 3 !¿?)

We are officially in holiday season! Growing up my parents (& by 2nd parents as in my aunt and uncle) always were the hub of our family. They still host all the holidays, birthdays, bbqs, you name it. All of our friends wanted to be over at our house. I guess you can say their homes were, and are, a home for all.  Nathaniel & I have very intentionally followed in those footsteps. We love to host everything. We love to have people in and out of the house. It is the very reason we bought it and chose to not live on base anymore. ▫️ ▫️ So as we prepare for the holidays my friend referred to me as the “hostess with the mostest” because our home has already been full of folks. So I decided that #todayontheblog I’d share my 1 & only tip for being the “Hostess with the Mostest”. Check it out & leave your favorite tips for being a great host in the comments. ♥️

Failure does not define you. It is proof that you tried. You cannot fail if you do not try.

Now go try again.

For many years I’ve had an unhealthy relationship with food and exercise. But lately my mindset has been shifting and I’m determined to create a healthy lifestyle based on all the right motivation. ⁣
⁣
To stay consistent and share my journey I’ll be posting here. This will be an ongoing effort, but one that’s so incredibly important to me. ⁣
⁣
Our bodies are precious gifts - we only have one to look after. And a strong, nurtured body (and mind) enables and equips every other aspect of life. ⁣

Here’s to slow but positive change 🙏🏻

How do you make study a habit?
.
It’s simpler than you think. You start. Right now, right where you are, as messy as life is, you begin.
.
It doesn’t matter if you don’t understand it all, if you started and stopped 29 other times, are intimidated by most of the books or have very little time. The way to start is to start.
.
Start as small as possible. Crack open Psalms and feel free to move slow. Leave yourself little room to fail. And then pray faithfully. Pray that God will give you a love for His word. I remember the first time I heard Beth Moore says she prays for that - I was blown away. Wait, you can pray for that?? 🤦🏼‍♀️
.
It’s a game changer, friend. Put in the time, little faithful bits and pieces, and watch Him grow something you that you never thought possible.
.
Tell me, what has helped you develop a habit of reading the Word? Or, if you are still working on it, what do you find most challenging in forming this habit?

In an effort to be mindful with how I use social media, I am taking things a bit slower. Posting less frequently. Focusing less on what I want to share and more on what you need from me as someone that wants to encourage you in your walk with Christ. I want to be careful with how I use this platform because it is the source of so much discouragement for many of us (yes, including myself). 🙈⁣
⁣
I’ve reached out to many of you to understand what you are struggling with. I am touched by the feedback! Some of you told me you struggle with comparison, a lack of confidence, a focus on numbers, negative body image, and the feeling of loneliness. All of this because we are utilizing an amazing tool to spread the Gospel. Social media is a double edged sword. ⁣
⁣
To combat this struggle and fear, I find myself going back to the parable of the talents. There is so much encouragement in what the Lord has to say about utilising our talents to serve others and glorify His name. If you are discouraged or lonely in your creative pursuits, I’d encourage you to go check it out. ⁣💓hashtaglinkindabio ⁣
(PS. I miss my momma okay?!) 🤣💕⁣Are you ever discouraged by social media? Let’s get real together. I’d love to hear from you 👇🏻

The most beautiful thing in you & me is a soul refined for the glory of the Lord. It’s not that we lose ourself, but that the challenges of life reveal what He has placed in each of us originally. Sin marred and covered up. But thru Jesus we are slowly getting back to our true Eden identities. Trading in the old for His new. That the world would see Him in us instead of our empty flesh. That His light would set our surrendered souls on fire to bring light and warmth and healing to the world! #wholisticola #livefree #livesurrendered #jesuspaiditall #walkbyfaith #livefullyalive #different #transformation

Feeling a bit rickety this morning, just like that bridge. I hope it brings its mathematical prowess to me as it’s boring admin for me this arvo and tallying invoices 😩

Blinders on.
Stay focused.
Your Thanksgiving week is your Thanksgiving week, and not someone else's, or what someone else thinks your Thanksgiving week should be, or what you think others think your Thanksgiving week should be...
Sheesh, that's exhausting!
Run your race at your pace.
Run your race, and not someone else's.
Run the mile you're in 💖👊👟🙏
