😬Sorry for being MIA here. I had a couple reasons for that; I needed a break and to spend some time with my family... it was really necessary. And... 💦 I was water fasting for 3 days.
I just like to reconnect with myself and restart my body and soul, plus it’s always a great experience. I know that water fasting is not for everyone, but I feel amazing after so I will leave it at that.
😱Today is my oldest boy, Aleks, 18th Birthday. It is really hard to believe that he is an “adult” now. I mean in my eyes he will always be mischievous and adventures little boy. Today has been a mix of all kind of emotions... happy and sad.🤧😁☹️😭😍
Also, I just want to report that I lost close to 20 pounds🙌🙌 since starting with Keto (November 12th, 2018)
I am so freaking happy about it...I am feeling incredible!
I wish you all an amazing week ahead!
:: tomorrow I will be continuing with my Keto plates.😉👋

What Do You Love About Liberty Milton? “OH MY GOSH. Besides the music? It’s the family atmosphere. There is a sense of belonging and knowing that not everyone here is perfect, and so we fit right in. At some churches, everyone can seem like they’re perfect. But my life isn’t perfect, and everyone else’s here isn’t, either. We’re all real here. Everyone at Liberty Milton has a story to tell, and it’s just amazing.”
We have been trying to create a new, meaningful Christmas tradition for our family, as we deal with the uprooted feeling since our move back here from Africa. The sheer amount of stuff and events and running about that goes on here has left us (okay, mainly me) feeling like there's a Grand Cavern-deep hole our spirits. It has been tough to try to reinvent Christmas without our tribe and all the community that we enjoyed in our little village. I have been racking my brain for something simple and easy to incorporate into our family life during Advent, and I started running across @thegivingmanger in my feed. Usually I run from IG ads like the plague, but this one grabbed me. I bit. And I am so glad I did. The idea is this: for each deed of kindness done to another, a straw goes in the manger. The manger needs to be full to welcome Baby Jesus by Christmas Day. Well, the kids have really taken this and run with it. They actively look for ways to serve each other, help strangers at the store, take time to play with a younger sibling, run an errand for Mom, etc. I am blown away and so thankful for this visual reminder to keep our focus on others. It is amazing what this does for all of us, yours truly included. (And this is not a paid/sponsored post. This is just me talking from a full heart.) #Christmas#Advent#holydays#othersfirst#serve#thegivingmanger#loveoneanother
I’ve been serving here for over a year now. Funny story, I’m not looking for recognition but think many of you will appreciate this. In 2011 my mom asked me to attend @willowcreekcc with her. At that time, I was like nope. Then in 2014, two years after her death and one month into my pregnancy with Grayson, I attended #willowcreek service for the first time. I’d been for grief support before. Shame on me for not accepting an invitation to spend time with both my mom and God. It’s funny how even as adults we aren’t open to what our parents suggest and often times...not even while they’re alive. Many go to church during their youth and adolescence but once in college and during their early adult years stray and God is not much of a priority. I know my parents, brother and myself all did that. Regardless, it’s all part of my journey and what a blessing Grayson has been, he brought God back into my life but I chose to keep Him in it! #volunteer#willowcreek#promiseland#faith#god#hope#love#family#life#grateful#blessed#serve#growth#contribution#godisgreat#christian#humility

Loved serving this morning at @crdsflorence 🎅🏼Even if we did get a bit sidetracked trying on giant costume hats...but the best part was meeting new friends and serving our community! My heart is so happy that this boy wakes up early, puts on “hard shoes” as he calls them and is eager to serve at church. Love his heart so much. And I love even more that we’ve slowed down and just focused on the meaning of Christmas! We talk daily about Jesus and the true meaning of Christmas, the importance of giving and spending time together as a family. These words are actually said, unprompted by a 7 year old. And this year, since Nash is cancer free (we hope, scans tomorrow 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼) he says he doesn’t even know what to ask Santa for because he has everything he needs and wants. ☺️ (although he did ask for a hatchimal with twins) BUT, I did not get a big list like typical years and he has not asked for anything. I don’t know if it’s because I implements a 3 gift rule this year (it worked for Jesus) or because the lack of screen time since May has resulted in less propaganda from commercials or what, but I am LOVING this attitude and heart this year. Zero whining. Zero complaining. Zero entitlement. A servant’s heart. I’m one happy momma. ❤️
I struggle with mom guilt, a LOT. 😥
In my head, I know it's not valid.
I'm creating a life of love, belonging, and abundance for my kids.
But on the crazy busy weeks (or sometimes months) when I'm pushing, pushing, pushing forward, I feel it like a toothache I can't ignore.
For me, I find reconnection through spending time with them snuggling over a movie, or baking a tasty breakfast with love. Today, it's gluten free pumpkin chocolate chip muffins.
It ebbs and flows, but these small acts in the busier times anchor me back in to why I'm doing all I'm doing in the first place.
Mom guilt can be crippling and a deterrent to bigger things, HARD things in life.
OR, it can be a motivator to work better, to spend time away efficiently and effectively, so that eventually there will be both time AND financial freedom. I
If you struggle with the mom guilt, I'd love to hear how you handle it. More tools in the bucket is good for all. ❤
1. Question do you heat the garlic sauce you get w your pizza at #papajohns or do you just full send it and not bother?
2. I don’t understand what’s going on in these photos either but I was probably listening to #Santa#baby

I officially have a tweenager. This year I notice just a bit more attitude with this normally sweet boy. Some days the words that would come out of his mouth I can’t even respond to.
I stated reading a book, “Your Kids Our Your Own Fault.” It’s a punch in the gut.
The author, Larry Winget, asks the question, “What qualities would you like your child to have when he is a 30 year old adult?” There were a bunch, but one was to be giving and not selfish (I really don’t want a spoiled kid.) Winget’s second question was, “What are you doing to teach him to be giving?” I paused. I was so focused on what NOT to do with him, I wasn’t teaching him how to be giving.
I talked to Travis about it.
Another quality was one who follows God. So Travis started reading one verse with the boys every morning.
He read to them the verse above and they chatted about it. It was hysterical what they thought “serving” was. Blake said, “I let mom take me out for ice cream.” Travis challenged them to do at least one service each day.
Trip (our middle son) would do something sweet and then asked if he could have baseball stickers. But a few days later he was actually asking how he could help.
Blake when asked the first day what he did to serve, said, “nothing.” So he no choice but to do dishes and take out the trash that evening.
He is still a tweenager and I’m actually looking forward to these years and the rest. It is teaching me so much (like how selfish I am hahaha, but really I am.) Our kids are far from perfect...and so are their parents.
What are some ways you serve other’s humbly?
James 1:27 NIV
27 Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.
I Cor. 13:1. New Living Translation
If I could speak all the languages of earth and of angels, but didn't love others, I would only be a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.
This is one of my favorite things to do....to pop in on our neighbors and give them a hug....sometimes a meal....sometimes a cookie. We can get so caught up in making sure we look spiritual and talk spiritual and do what other people think is spiritual that we forget this simple stuff. Love your neighbor. Take care of the widows and the orphans. Love with action. Oh, wait.....this is actually the big stuff, the God stuff, the stuff that fills my soul and my spirit..... this is my spiritual. I love sharing this with my kiddos, too. #blessed#love#serve
This is my church. I am the church. We are the church. #churchplant
We had a phenomenal weekend with you at A Connect Christmas!🎄
We are in awe of the way God moved throughout each service & in between!
Huge thank you for our team who served with such open hearts- we appreciate you!
