my only tattoo reads “unashamed”, a reminder from romans 1:16 in the Bible that says “i am not ashamed of gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation for all who believe, first for the Jew and then for the Gentile”. i rrrrreally have the itch for a second (maybe third 🙈) tattoo now.

thinking of doing a thin, minimalist cross on my right wrist and then i’m digging the idea of the word “free” with small birds above it or even “victorious” (my name, Laura, actually means victor and how awesome because we as believers are victorious in Christ! 🙌🏻). my favorite is tattoos on the lower arm/wrists, but i’m not looking to do a half sleeve or anything.

do you have tattoos? what are your favorite placement ideas?

Walking on the edge allows you to move into your zone of genius. 👑
.

Its scary, I know. .

But nothing kills you more than wishing you would've taken more chances when you had the opportunity.
.

What do you have right in front of your face that you are ignoring? .

What do you want to create but don't quite know how to put it into action? .

Start NOW!
Take the chance!
.

You can't cultivate the story, if you never create it. .

Go all in! Only look back to show gratitude that you moved forward. 🌻

He makes all things new & beautiful. I went on the porch of the Grand Hotel this morning to see the sunrise and as the beams turned the pillars gold, it began to snow. Sun and snow at the same time, dancing over the water of the Straits. The theme of this fall’s retreat keeps coming back to God’s restoring power. What better picture of His grace?

Hello, conviction. We meet again. I can admit I struggle with this. This is what I see everywhere on social media. I try to hold myself to a higher standard now. I encourage you to do the same.

Thoughts on Matthew 23:37-38 as I meditate and memorize this Scripture. 
Today I focused in on Matthew 22:37-38. 
I asked myself what is the difference between your heart, your soul and your mind. In this passage, Jesus tells us the greatest commandment is to love God this way. ❤️
My heart is where my feelings come from and my emotions. We might love someone or something more than God. Our feelings and emotions for that person or thing will be strong BUT God is our Creator and we will never feel truly known until we have a good relationship with God and live Him with ALL (not just part of) our heart. ❤️ One day I will die but my soul is what will live on. We can't see our soul. But how is our soul different from our heart? At our core, our soul is who we really ate. Even if you take away our emotions and thoughts we still have our soul. Last night at Bible study we were talking about loving Jesus so much that we are not scared of death. When our time comes to leave this earth we will leave in peace knowing that we will finally get to see Jesus face to face. I think that might be what it is like to love God with all your soul. ❤️
My mind is my thoughts and intellect. God has been reworking my mind to not think negative/stressful thoughts but to trust Him. If you follow me then you know that God just blessed us with a new van. Monday morning my husband and I prayed over the new van.
❤️
Then that afternoon my husband realized I had a flat tire (but praise God I made it home with the kids safely) I could have stressed over where the money would come from but for the first time, my thoughts didn't go negative. Instead, I trusted God and told my husband God would provide. A short time later, a friend stopped by with a card and a check. She told me to use the money where we needed it. God had already put this on her mind before I even got the flat tire. Me trusting God was me loving Him with all my mind. ❤️
What would it look like for you to love God with all your heart? All your soul? All your mind? I would love to hear your thoughts. #thankyoujesus  #biblejournaling #lovegod #wordbeforeworld #mandmverses

“And the Lord told me, ‘Get up and go into Damascus, and there you will be told everything you are to do.’” ~Acts of the Apostles‬ ‭22:10‬
📖🎚❤️
Paul was on his way to persecute believers when Jesus met Him and radically changed His life. I need to remember the ways Jesus has radically changed my life and use that to spur me to preserve through my current struggles.

Don’t let nothing shake your faith in God. No negativity, doubt, unbelief, naysayers, discouraging words shake your faith in God.  Satan will try to make you think God is not going to fulfill His promises. The devil is a liar and the truth is not in him. Trust God and received what Satan is trying to block from you. .

The creator of the universe longs to be personally involved in our lives. Too often we try to go on our own strength instead of depending on His. God has made us and He knows exactly what we need. —

Are you trusting Him today? Are you letting Him care for you? I know I need to trust my Maker more. — “Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker; for he is our God and we are the people of His pasture, the flock under His care.” Psalm 95:6-7

I was enjoying a cuppa the other day when I did a mental checklist of the books I've read so far this year and realised I haven't read much from my favourite genre, non-fiction. It's like I read everything else trying to catch up with recommendations and previously set goals that I almost abandoned that genre. So far I've read 3 self-help/personal develolment books and only one memoir, Buchi Emecheta's Head Above Water, which was sooo good. I've got my eye on Tara Westover's Educated and I'm looking forward to the release of Michelle Obama's Becoming, fingers crossed I'll be able to read at least one of them before the year is over. .

Pictured are some of the unread non-fiction books in my library, just the white ones. Heaven knows when I'll get to them 😥 #bibliophileproblems #toomanybookstoolittletime

Do you read memoirs? What are favourites?

Happy Wednesday, friends! Waking up to this view is the best and it makes me so happy. I usually love living in the city and enjoy my urban conveniences to the fullest but being home with my parents always reminds me that I’m a small town girl at heart 😉 Will be taking a drive to the country site today to do more #leavepeeping and enjoy the beautiful nature around us. Have a lovely day! 🧡 #autumnlove

There’s a wide circle on the internet, where we can share, transparent and true. Then there’s a narrow circle in real life, who see it all, right beside you. Cheers to those who help us not confuse the two. ♥️

Matthew 9-10.
Jesus sends out the twelve. He gives them power to heal others and He tells them to give freely as they have received freely. 10:7-8
All for the purpose of proclaiming this message as they go: "the kingdom of Heaven has come near." Jesus tells them to be on their guard. That it isn't going to be easy. "Be shrewd as snakes and innocent as doves." 10:16
Be wise and innocent! Above reproach. 
What about when they were questioned?
"When they arrest you, do not worry about what to say or how to say it. At that time you will be given what to say. For it will not be you speaking but the Spirit of your Father speaking THROUGH you." 10:19-20
This doesn't just apply when arrested. Think about it. The importance of sharing the Gospel period. As long as we focus on Him and our hearts are in the right place - He will give us the opportunity and the words to say.
So many people are just so afraid they won't have the "right words". But guess what?! God is bigger than your fears and your worry! 
He has placed you on their path to use you. To speak through you. You may be the person who is closest to Jesus that they have ever met.
Don't doubt that He wants to use you. Now, don't be afraid! He is big enough to give you the words to say.
Even when we face situations where we may be fearful of sharing the Gospel, Jesus encourages us to not be afraid. Look at Matthew 10:26-28
Our fears shouldn't be for those who can hurt us physically but rather the evil that can kill others spiritually!
Be on your guard but also keep proclaiming and give freely. Let us be to others what we are thankful someone was for us - think about that person that helped you come to Christ. What made them stand out?
Were they fearless or unapologetic about the Gospel?
It's natural to be fearful but we are to take courage and proclaim regardless.

I took these cute little ragamuffins to the store in Yreka today. It felt a little like seeing wild animals in the zoo, except that these wild animals exist in a very small forest with a captive audience so they think everyone at the zoo wants to hear about their trip to the coast. Hattie has never met a stranger, and Anders just clung to his new toothbrush while I looked at crayons. Then we got Altoids, which my children love, and I rejoiced that I don’t foresee there being fluorescent lights in heaven.

It has been one of the greatest and most difficult years of my life. .
🌟
I learned everything is temporary.  Moments, feelings, people, flowers. 
I learned that love is about giving,  everything, and letting it hurt. 
I learned vulnerability is always the right choice because it is so easy to be cold in a world that makes it so very difficult to remain soft. 
I learned that all things come in twos.  Life to death, pain and joy, salt and sugar, me and you.  It is the balance of the universe.
It has been the year of hurting so bad but living is so good.  Making friends out of strangers,  making strangers out of friends.
Learning mint and chocolate chip ice cream will fix just about everything.  And for the pains it can't there will always be my father God's arms. .
🌟
We must learn to focus on warm energy, always, soak our limbs in it and become better lovers to the world.  For if we can't learn to be kinder to eachother how will we ever learn to be kinder to the most desperate parts of ourselves. .
🌟
It really has been a year of learning for me! And it has been incredible to see the transformation happen within me!

Can you relate to this? Are you in a season of change?
Or are you in a state of needing to find your season of change? Feeling lost, lonely, and confused? Maybe just a little frumpy?

Let's talk!

I'm rooting for you!

Sometimes when we move into new terrain on our life’s journey, it’s obvious. There’s a gateway, a sign, a herald of some sort that announces that something is changing. Other times, though, change is quiet, incremental—and easy to miss. Or at least be unprepared for. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’m learning that even the most incremental change, the daily move toward, say, a milestone age, a child’s graduation, the empty nest, or retirement. As a homeschool-mom, I’m less than four years from forced retirement and probably an empty nest. The signs are subtle enough. They’d be easy to ignore. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Wisdom is whispering to me to pay attention—to have my antenna up and my thinking cap, to be aware of my emotions and the possibilities. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
One phrase I’ve heard for the first time recently is “emptying nest.” Empty nest is an obvious gateway, but it’s also an incremental journey. The emptying nest is reminding me to pay attention the incremental changes along the way. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Is there an obvious or an incremental change in your life’s terrain? How are you walking through it? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you happen to be a fellow emptying nester, check out @kit.tosello.writes for some encouragment. •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

🍂Meet Jordan and John. They are pretty great friends. I sure get a lot of joyful moments with them. Here are a few things I have learned from them: .
1) there is no such thing as being too late to visit 
2) wine and games are always a good a idea
3) food(sushi,tacos) and great conversations are must 
4) being encouraging, supportive and adventurous is a guarantee. 
5) being married to your best friend is important 
6) Jesus continues to surprises us everyday 
7) ALWAYS ALWAYS SAY YES TO A SLEEPOVER! 🤣

Y’all friends rock!

What was life like for you 5 years ago? 
Kids? Married? or still in college?

Think back . . . 🤔 
My life is QUITE different now ~ 
I am no longer a stressed out, lonely and exhausted Mom lacking energy to take care of my young kids. .

It’s really incredible how much has changed in just a few short years and I owe it all to saying “YES” to a business opportunity that I knew very little about! 🤣

I signed up knowing that I’d get a discount on my next fitness program that I purchased. 💰The accountant in me was pretty excited for that! 👍🏼 I was happy that my 1st program had gotten me awesome results (down 15 pounds and feeling great)! 😎 
And I wanted to keep going on my journey and maybe share what I was doing with my friends/family. .

I didn't know that in the process, I would also find a deeper passion in helping others 💕(for reals, it’s SO rewarding) and gain confidence & strength in myself. 💪🏼 I also fell in love with the community, the support and the friendships 👭 - - - all of which I can’t imagine being without now. .

Being a stay at home mom definitely has its rewards too & I wouldn't trade it for the world, but being able to help 100's of others (most I've never even met except virtually) on their health and wellness journey takes it to a whole new level! 😁

I am thankful that I have been given this platform to lead my life by my design - helping others while at the same time taking care of myself and my family. 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 If you are the least bit curious as to what I do to mentor others, do not hesitate to ask! 🤳The only regret I have is not learning about this life changing opportunity sooner.

Maybe it’s not working out, because God is working out something better. Sometimes it takes your breakdown to create your breakthrough. Sometimes our greatest blessings come from our biggest disappointments.

You may not know the way ahead. What awaits you around the next bend or over the next rise? Perhaps it’s not only unclear, but fraught with worries.
✨
You probably don’t know what’s ahead. But I know who does. Your Shepherd knows and is ready to, not only guide you through it, but also be with you, walking hand-in-hand all the way.

Place your hand in His capable hand and take the steps He directs. You’ve got this, because He’s got you.

Inner beauty is what makes one beautiful.  God's word tells us in Proverbs 31 that beauty is fleeting but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. I ask God a lot to "create in me a clean heart" (Psalm 51:10). When Jesus has my full heart in my life is when I am my loveliest, finding myself intentional in overflowing with the fruits of the spirit. (Galatians 5:22-23)  Following Jesus isn't always glamorous but your heart and soul is at it's loveliest, overflowing outwardly, with a joy and contentment only JESUS can bring. ❤

My heart beats for missions. I love seeing the Gospel advanced overseas.💗 If you know me in real life, you may know that I’m always dreaming of the next time I can hop on a plane to Asia. I love seeing what God is doing through willing men and women who have dedicated their lives to missions.
.
I was 14 years old the first time I visited Asia. 7 years later I took a one-way flight to Beijing to begin my journey of teaching in China. I spent a total of a year and a half in China and cannot wait to get back to serve there with Jonathan at some point!
.
One of the books that’s been instrumental in my dedication to serving in a missions context is Send Me, I’ll Go: Letting the Mission Choose Your Direction by Jake Taube (@jakesteph210) - If you’ve ever considered serving in a missions context or would like to learn more about the Biblical command to go make disciples (Matthew 28:16-20), I recommend this book! The Great Commission is not just a suggestion. Believers are called to live this out!

Have faith in God. Part two. 📖
📖
God is time and He’s an on time God. Trust His timing. We always want to hurry God. God is moving when we can’t see it. The centurion beseech Jesus to come heal his servant. The centurion asked Jesus to speak the word of healing only for his servant, and he believed he will be healed. Jesus was so impressed with his great faith and told the centurion to go his way and as he believe his servant is healed. The servant was healed the same hour Jesus spoke the word. Healing was given before the centurion saw his servant. Matthew 8:5-13.
.
Remember, faith is believing without seeing.

God has a clear purpose for your life and no matter how ordinary or menial your work seems, you are there to make a difference. .

Looking back at the people who have made the biggest impact on my life, very few were well known. The ones who nurtured my heart and actually changed the course of my life were the humble friends who listened, joined in the battle with me, and loved me through the hard things. .

God will use our ordinary life for His EXTRAORDINARY PLAN!

I often fail at lunch. I have chosen the privilege of being the gatekeeper of my family’s diet, but when lunch comes around I am the queen of convenience seekers. I am not hating on the PB&J (my always and forever favorite), I am merely saying that I’m recommitting myself to the concept of lunch. To plan ahead, to sit down with my kids, to make something thoughtful for my husband to eat even if he doesn’t have time to sit with us. Slowing down mid day sends a powerful message to my soul... to cease striving, to be still, to remember that I am human limited by my need to eat, but I serve a God who is not limited by anything. Yes, I’m recommitting to lunch, and I feel good about it.

“I have no need of a bull from your stall or of goats from your pens, for every animal of the forest is mine, and the cattle on a thousand hills. I know every bird in the mountains, and the insects in the fields are mine. If I were hungry I would not tell you, for the world is mine, and all that is in it.” Psalm 50

I want to get real with y’all today! I’ve felt off with my health and the way I have felt for awhile now! I’ve suffered through out the years, especially after having babies, with stress, weight gain, depression, anxiety, fatigue, and hair growth on my face. These are just a few symptoms I’ve suffered from! I’ve been to the drs and had treatment with therapy and medication for PPD but feel like I was sort of brushed off with real concerns for other parts of my health journey at times. Not sure why we can’t feel more confident when going to the drs? Speaking up about our health is so extremely important and also really understanding what’s happening within our bodies! *

I can’t say with complete certainty I’m an Enneagram 3; although, people who know me well will say so on my behalf. Ha! So there’s that. But here is what I do know about myself: When I read the healthy 3w2 description, and that is me at my best. When I read the unhealthy 3w4 description, that is basically me at my worst. So, there’s that, too.

I also know I need a lot of down time to re-charge with the Lord if I’m going to make it through the day. Life is full. Mothering two beautifully wild boys takes more energy than I have in my own strength. My husband works hard and travels frequently. I teach and oversee 63 college students in writing courses, which means 63 papers 4x a semester, emails, and conferences. And then there are all my side hustle ministry interest: a fellowship in Dallas, human trafficking prevention education research, work and faith, Christian leadership... y’all. Yes, I exhaust myself doing it. Heck, I exhausted myself just writing it out .

I can goal crush with the best of them, but if I am not constantly recharging my soul then I am ultimately crushing it. Hear me admit that. I need time with Jesus daily, or I am intolerable to myself and those around me. A Baylor student recently interviewed me for the student paper, and she asked me how I juggle all these balls. I told her I don’t. Otherwise they’ll just drop, and some of these balls are glass. I cannot afford to let them fall. Instead, I ask the Lord for His yes and His no. And hear me admit this, too: I am bad about saying yes, especially if I don’t pray before responding. I need to grow in this area.

Whatever your Enneagram number, pause for a moment. Rest. Refuel in the Lord today. It will be the most productive unproductive time you allocate to something today.

lately God’s been reminding me that i need not discount or belittle any task i’m given. they’re all making me more like Him whether i see it or not. i need to honor them. respect them. embrace them + reflect on them often. #gentlereminder #adventuringwithabba

When I first started my health journey, it felt like everyday there was a new “should” or “shouldn’t.” I felt I couldn’t possibly keep up or afford money 💵 to keep up. All I knew was I wanted to FEEL better.  Being the rational person I am(I seriously can’t shut my Brian off sometimes), I researched and deliberated, and came to a conclusion. If I could only do ☝️ one thing, it makes sense to focus from the inside out. This is when I started my daily Pink Drink and supplement routine. What happened from here was the part I least expected. Now that I FELT better, I started making another good choice and then another. It no longer felt overwhelming. In fact my routine is quite simple and not expensive compared to what I have saved from not making poor choices for my body any longer. Now I not only have a simple routine to keep the inside of my body running at peak, but I also have simple,clean, effective (and cost effective) skincare and eating routines to keep my outside looking radiant. Now I can truly Live Abundantly Mind, Body, and Spirit! ❤️ #insideouthealth #cleanskincare #joyome #loveyourguts #glowingskin #simplifyyourlife #abundantlife #womenlivingwell #makeyouapriority #toxinfreeliving #toxinfreebeauty #wellnessjourney #momsofpreschoolers #momstruggles #workingmomlife #naturalenergy #nocaffeine

Autumn comes and I just want to bottle it. I want to slow time and stay in this place where those sticks we planted in our barren ground are finally showing up, showing off.
.
🍂
I want to hold tight to that boy with the too short pants, the baby outgrowing my lap, my hand, daily. I want it all to stand still for a second. Boy stop moving, leaves stop falling.
.
🍁
But in the ache of change, the hunger for unchanging, I see what my heart was created to desire. Immutability, the only One truly unchanging.
.
🍂
“For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made...” Romans 1:20
.
🍁
This fluid motion here, my discontentment with all that is slipping away, gives clarity to my innate desire for more of Him. And it makes these lovely moments, this glorious changing season, all the more beautiful.

"And he called the people to him and said to them, “Hear and understand: it is not what goes into the mouth that defiles a person, but what comes out of the mouth; this defiles a person.” Then the disciples came and said to him, “Do you know that the Pharisees were offended when they heard this saying?”He answered, “Every plant that my heavenly Father has not planted will be rooted up. Let them alone; they are blind guides. And if the blind lead the blind, both will fall into a pit.” But Peter said to him, “Explain the parable to us.” And he said, “Are you also still without understanding? Do you not see that whatever goes into the mouth passes into the stomach and is expelled? But what comes out of the mouth proceeds from the heart, and this defiles a person. For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false witness, slander. These are what defile a person. But to eat with unwashed hands does not defile anyone.”
-Matthew 15:10-20

{44|365} Currently reading...anyone else read more than one book at a time? Not pictured is “Unexpected” by @christinecaine (it’s my before bed read...so it’s on my nightstand). I am reading “Becoming Mom Strong” for the second time, this time leading an amazing group of ladies at our church through it. The others are first time reads. What are you reading right now? Anything good?

words have the power. words hold either life or death (James 3:6) and while that may sound severe or a little more serious than you wanted on your tuesday morning, it’s true.

growing up, there was an adult who spoke some emotionally abusive words to me. this person was unkind (clearly), unhappy and apparently thought it was okay to speak to a child in the most cruel and inappropriate of ways. that season of life was one of the hardest, most dark and when i speak of it, it still brings tears to my eyes.

now, an adult with three beautiful children, i get to choose. life or death. encouragement or tearing down. and the weight of it is both wonderful and heavy all at once.

i fail my kids, and often. i have said things i can’t take back, spoke in tones and volumes that no one should ever be spoken to in. and then grace. the goodness of God. He reminds me that every MOMENT is a chance to show up, be different and do better. to honor Him, and show His beautiful character on display for my kids. what a thing, to show other the very love of God, through something as simple and meaningful as our words.

Another #ibachthenandnow post to celebrate 3 years of hand lettering! The top left was after one week of brush lettering, the top right was one year, bottom left marked two years, and the bottom right marks today. Truthfully, I'd still consider last year's piece true to my style, but lately I have been practicing writing at more of an angle.⠀
. ⠀
This month, I'm also celebrating my 1-year anniversary as a full-time hand lettering artist and Etsy shop owner! I wrote a blog post sharing my journey over the past year. I ended up titling it: The Truth Behind Running An Etsy Shop. (L!nk in profile)⠀
. ⠀
For months I've been craving more honesty in the creative business community. I want to see past the numbers and know the full story, so today's blog post is my attempt at sharing what I've found to be true in running an Etsy shop full time.⠀
. ⠀
If you are an Etsy shop owner or considering starting one yourself, I highly recommend this post and hope you'll be encouraged by it. ⠀

Friend, if you feel like you are in a dark place right now, I want to encourage you to sing. I know it night sound crazy, but it works. I remember years and years ago when I was living in a dark place... I felt hopeless and fearful and angry. I felt like I wanted to die so that maybe I could escape all the pain that filled my heart. I remember thinking of all the ways I could end my life. And then I remember the whisper of God coming to me, reminding me that I was never alone. That I was loved and valued and needed. I would hold on to those whispers and find hope until the next time the darkness came. Somewhere in between the dark moments of abuse and turmoil in my life, God sent a beautiful woman to remind me that the best was really yet to come. She gently but firmly encouraged me to start picking up my Bible in the darkness and then to sing praise. Yes...it sounded crazy to me. How in the world would the words in an old book know how to make me feel better?! And how in the world was I supposed to be able to open my mouth and sing Praise when all I felt was hopeless and discouraged and angry??!!! I remember that the darkness came again after that. I remember grabbing a knife and running to my bedroom, locking the door, and throwing myself on the floor, sobbing uncontrollably. Filled with years and years of bitterness and rage at myself and my abusers, I attempted to cut away the flesh on my body that felt dirty and damaged. As I began inflicting pain, the whisper of God came again as well as the words from the Beautiful woman. Sitting on the floor, so desperately wanting to end my life, not having any strength or will power to get up and go find my Bible, I started to sing. Through the pain. Through the hot tears. Through the anger. Through the despair. Through the darkness. I sang. I was desperate for hope. Desperate for healing. Desperate for light. My life changed that night. My mind flipped a switch when I started singing. Joy started filling my soul. Hope started flickering and burning brighter than all my pain. You see, I had sang before. But never in the darkness. As I sang in the darkness, the hand of God touched me and transformed me into believing

Oh Jesus, thank You for putting Your breath in my lungs, and Your Spirit in my spirit, and faith to believe You in my heart. Thank You for submitting to the press, to the point of death, that I might know eternal life with You in the garden of Your eternal Kingdom. Whether I walk where You walked here on earth or not, thank You for walking where I am today, through the presence of Your Holy Spirit. May I daily remember to slip off my sandals and lift my hands in praise, for this too is Holy ground!  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.⠀

My husband once made a statement that i can’t seem to forget. He said if God has called my children to be a garbage collectors, that is what they are going be and they will do it to glorify Him. He always says “i do not desire for my children to be anything other than what God has called them to be”. It takes intimacy and an understanding of purpose to be able to accept whatever God has planned for you.
———-
When i was growing up, you asked kids what they *wanted* to be and most including myself will go with the careers we know will make our parents happy; mainly because we have heard them say it once or twice. Whether we like it or not society operates a class system and sometimes we get caught up in the class structure because we have to “fit in”. I have made some choices in life just to please people. But intimacy with God made me move away from the idea that i have to please people or fit in. As long as it is God’s will and i am walking in purpose then everybody else must adjust.
——-
There is no better representation of a relationship and intimacy with God than someone who desires to be ONLY what God has called them to be without being concerned about the worldly consequences. When you focus on the coming glory and to hear the Lord say “well done good and faithful servant” everything else becomes small. 
I have clashed with people sometimes because i have chosen to do things God’s way - because his way sometimes disrupts the worldly system.
———
It is important to clarify your purpose, Why do you do what you do? To fit in or to glorify God? A false purpose can get you to fit in BUT organizing your life to please and to fit in has consequences in the long term (imagine standing before the king of kings someday and He says you lived a lie).

Don’t give yourself a false purpose just to fit in because you may fit in well in society but lose your place in Heaven.

Sometimes I find myself emotionally unbalanced. All in my feelings and ish. .

I feel like our generation has created this unofficial handbook of how you should feel, or how to appear more emotionally numb in life cause that's "where it's at" or is it? Too often we are bursting with emotion in the inside yet, slowly driving ourselves mentally insane because of the fear of judgement. .

Truth is, people are FINALLY starting to realize that it's ok to feel. Whaaaa?! .

It's ok to be ecstatic, upset, etc. to express your truths. That is such a huge sigh of relief for many people. Especially in this world of social media when eyes are constantly watching, waiting, and judging. .

Like in the movie Frozen, (yes I'm referencing to a Disney movie, judge me not lol) Queen Elsa would say "conceal don't feel" to hide her truths, but anytime they slipped it was a mess. We are human, we are designed to feel and that's not the worst thing in the would. .

Women are feeling like they have to hold back or else they will appear "too emotional" in the workplace, in relationships, etc. .

Yet men feel like if they show any emotion they are "too soft." .

So everybody is running around like emotionless robots who have their lives together and if they don't they are "good." 🤔
.

No ma'am. 
No sir. .

You've been given the gifts of emotions, a voice, and the opportunity to make the difference in your life. YOU have to ACT!
.

Showing emotion is not a sign of weakness, its it's a sign of strength. It says that you acknowledge how you feel which often (hopefully) leads to you taking action to change whatever it is that is making you feel unbalanced. .

Never be afraid of dealing with your emotions head on. Avoiding them and holding your tongue is just a prelude to all hell breaking loose at some point in the near future.
.

I am the first to say that talking with someone, a (rational) friend or family member, or a professional helps you move through things in life with a little more certainty that you aren't in this alone. .

Never be afraid of expressing your true feelings. Never be afraid to ask for help. Because truth is we all do.💕

missing this beautiful place and the feelings I had and the glory I witnessed with my husband by my side and that’s what’s on my heart at the moment. 🌿
What’s on your heart? 🌿
What is the Lord trying to teach you? 🌿 
Is there a way I can pray for you?

In between studying the book of Ruth, I am knitting orders.  I have read this book in the Bible before but this time there are new nuggets I am finding about the story I didn’t know before. God’s Word is amazing. Every detail woven together, intentionally not by accident.  Just like in chapter 2 where Ruth “happened” to be in the field belonging to Boaz.  Do you really think it was by accident?  No, I can see God’s hand directing Ruth’s path the whole time. She turned from her god in Moab, Chemosh.  She was faithful to Naomi and her God.  She was a diligent worker and friend.  She is an example of loving your MIL, friend and others like Jesus.  I am excited to share more and study this book with y’all for the next few weeks. Are you?  Thank you guys for spurring me on in this study and joining in! #knitthegospelintoyourheart

She was a diligent worker and friend. She is an example of loving your MIL, friend and others like Jesus. I am excited to share more and study this book with y’all for the next few weeks. Are you? Thank you guys for spurring me on in this study and joining in! #knitthegospelintoyourheart 
“But he said, “Why all this weeping? You are breaking my heart! I am ready not only to be jailed at Jerusalem but even to die for the sake of the Lord Jesus.”” ~Acts of the Apostles‬ ‭21:13‬
📖🎚❤️
What am I willing to give up or endure for the sake of Jesus my Lord?

Today's reading: Matthew 8:14-34 & Mark 4-5.
The power of the storm was what the disciples were focused on.
A great storm had come across in their journey to the other side of the lake. Many of them were fishermen... and this storm was making them afraid for their lives. The waves swept over the boat and they must have been pushing through and trying to man the boat to the best of their ability. Like any good movie scene, soaked through, yelling and trying to do what they could. But the storm kept on.
And Jesus was asleep.
They went and woke Him up. "Teacher, don't you care if we drown?" Mark 4:38
Wow... don't you care? As if His sleeping meant He was complacent to their issues. He was after all IN the boat Himself. Hadn't He proven His care? But in their defense they are terrified. Remember focusing on the power of the storm.
Jesus didn't respond to them but got up and rebuked the wind and waves, "Quiet! Be still!" 4:39
And everything was C A L M. 
Then He turns to the disciples, "why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?" 4:40
They were amazed at what He had done. "They were terrified and asked each other, "Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey Him." 4:41
When the storms of life come how do you respond?
Are you running around the boat fearful? Do you do all you can and then go get Jesus?
Or do you realize that because JESUS IS IN THE BOAT WITH YOU that everything is under control 
D E S P I T E  the waves?
Our focus matters. Focus on Jesus not the waves! If it seems like your life is in the midst of a deadly storm and you think Jesus isn't responding, take heart that He is in the boat. 
If He is "asleep", then maybe your focus is off. He won't let you drown. This storm wasn't about destruction. It was about their faith. The storms will come but guess what? JESUS IS IN THE BOAT! He does care and He won't let you drown. Have faith.

My husband made me this AMAZING salad for dinner!!! He definitely out did McDonald’s southwest salad!!! The devil has done everything imaginable to try and come between us to keep us from our destination that God planned just for us...all I can say is not today, tomorrow, or ever, SATAN!!! #marriage #anniversary

Lately, I have been overwhelmed by God’s goodness and grace. He is always doing a new thing. Do you believe that? In Isaiah 43:19 it says, “See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in wilderness and steams in the wasteland.” 🙌🏻
~•~
So much “new” has been happening in my life and in the life of @sanctuary_project lately. New partners, new venues, new opportunities, and new levels of reliance on God’s power and strength to carry us through it all. 🙏🏻
~•~
In the midst of all the new in the external, Ive been leaning in to God to ask Him what “new thing” He wants to do in my life internally. 🕊
~•~
It’s easy to cling to the old...that old word He spoke. That old worship song that brings me back. That old thing He did where He moved mountains I couldn’t move. So much of Israel’s faith was built on remembering the “old.” 🌾
~•~ But when Isaiah spoke those words over the nation of Israel that God was doing a “new thing,” he was speaking of Jesus. A new covenant was coming! One with the power to transform and make all things new! 💕
~•~
So, what new thing is God doing in your life today? What new word is He speaking over you? What new venture is He calling you into? What new relationship has He gifted you with? I’d love to hear about “what’s new” in your life!

The Struggle is Real Day 15: FEAR to FAITH•
•
When I look at this picture and see this girl carrying her lion, it reminds me of my own daughter and her silky blanket she has•
•
This lion makes this girl feel safe and not afraid, just like my daughter’s silky blanket•
•
We have a real security blanket in God. In struggles, in pits, and scary times, we can put our trust in Him•
•
When you are in the process of moving out of Depression into a NEW way of living, it is scary!...it takes baby steps...baby steps of FAITH to make that shift•
•
You have been trapped in this pit for a while, and fear has paralyzed you.•
•
But now, you are wanting to get out of this pit, you are wanting to get help and not stay in this frame of mind and lifestyle that you are in.•
•
On day 15, we talk about the importance of baby steps and that you have to crawl before you walk.•
•
Rejoice in the baby steps of faith that you take today and challenge yourself to take them. •

{43|365} We don’t do it right all the time, but we sure try. Teaching our children to learn all they can The Word, to love Jesus, and to live their lives for Him...that’s what we want.
.

That’s ALL that we want. If they learn to do those things, everything else will fall into place. #kingdomhearts #raisingkingdomkids #raisingkingdomwarriors #kidsforreal #courtneykphotoaday
How would I describe this family Life? Well it's no ordinary family Life because it is Life in a New spiritual reality, Life in the New Humanity that Christ died to establish on this earth! "... just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her..." Eph 5:25. The Life  God purposed for us to enjoy on this earth, the Life He had in mind before the fall is none other than the Life  of His Son! 
The church or ekkelsia is a group of people learning to live by the Life of Christ. She is the community of the King. In every city she is found , she is a foretaste of the Kingdom of God! And "she" because she is Christ's bride!
One might argue and say well surely that's to come, the church should really be concentrating on other things like taking authority over this, healing that etc... What we have discovered in fellowship, is this world first and foremost needs a better place. We are not called to transform the old reality of the world, but live transformed lives out of the new reality in Christ. 
John Nugent writes "God's strategy is for His people not to fix the world but to plant a new world right in the midst of the old one and to woo the old world to Himself through it."
What better way to do this than in a glorious family centred enviroment that meets Gods deepest needs and our own. God will lead the ekkelsia on in His time, but in this broken world, she needs a better place, a locale in which she is totally safe to heal, restore, enjoy, love, celebrate... .

Reading through the New Testament in 60 days with my Fit Community is so humbling! The words of Jesus are so powerful. .
I don’t know about you but there’s so much I try to control. My household, my marriage, my children, my business, my habits, my abilities, etc. .
But what I end up doing is looking like a fool as I run around trying to catch every single thing before it falls to the ground because...I’m not MADE TO DO IT ALL. .
And neither are you, sista. And it’s OKAY to admit that to Him! So here’s to spending less time DOING and more time BEING in his presence and letting Him fit the pieces where they need to be. I know this SELF is not satisfied for very long when I chase MY anything. So whose with me?? Drop an emoji below and let’s pursue His presence instead of our SELF-juggling act!

Tried something new. Cauliflower fried rice. Didn’t die. Didn’t hate it. I will take that as a win on this Monday.

Double tap if you spot the little curly mop and the loaded stroller! 😄 Was going to post something else today, but this moment has my heart ❤ This is #momlife, and it's no easy task. But even though I'm cleaning up couch cushions and muslin blankets again and again, my kids get at each other's throats over Legos, and it's usually pretty loud around here, #motherhood is a beautiful place to be. Their giggles, hugs, and kisses are the best. No one looks at me like they do. And being a mama has shown me I'm so much stronger and more capable than I ever knew 💪 👩‍👦‍👦 What is something that stretches your character, but in a good way?

Kids are natural learners. They are far more intuitive and intelligent than we tend to acknowledge. And to embrace that and nurture that is a daily (okay, hourly) thing for me. Right now, this is being tested in every capacity. I adore when my kids take pictures of our life because it gives me such a beautiful pause + perspective of their view. They’re adjusting and growing into new roles of co-big siblings. Learning so many new boundaries. 
I’m clinging to a new balance of connection with 3 kids. 
I’m embracing that mama isn’t quite enough right now for all 3 of them. 
I’m deeply cherishing the time we have daddy home to hold us all together. 
I’m returning to the ebb + flow of life with a newborn again. 
This is such a sweet reminder of us, though. All completely enamored by this little life that has changed our family in the best way possible. .
