New Faith and Fitness Challenge Groups – Join us!

Happy Friday!  I’m starting a new challenge group.  Join a small group of women at all different levels of living a healthy lifestyle.  Some find themselves drowning in anxiety, others not fitting into their clothes, while others desire prayer and accountability.  I’d love to have you join this group or a future group.  It’s easy to get started.  Just fill out the form below and I’ll get in contact with you.  It would be an honor and privilege to walk {Read More}

This Day I Choose not to Shame My Body.

Today I decided to change the old adage, “I’m not getting any younger” to “I refuse to act older”.  As I near 40 (& yes, I realize that’s old to some, and young to others), I’ve decided to stop worrying about being a bit silly, and what others may think.  In fact, the other day I was at my sister’s house and I snuck out to the driveway to play with the kids’ skateboards and Razor scooters.  When I got {Read More}

You Ask, We Will Answer

Dear family and friends, and new friends from the internet! We are in awe of all of the words of support from you.  In addition, there have been a lot of private messages as to how you can help, or wanting more information.  The siblings we are bringing into our home are 12 and 13 years old.  We are not allowed to share a lot online, so we will share as we can.  I know you’d love to see a {Read More}

8 months in 60 seconds

I love you, O LORD, my strength. The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge. He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. Psalm 18:1,2 It has been awhile since I’ve logged in.  So long in fact that I cannot remember my logins to change the Christmas stuff in your newsletter if you’re opening this in your e-mail.  But, if you are here, I {Read More}

Our Baby Genevieve Story

Genevieve Alice arrived August 22, 2013 just after noon.  If you follow me on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter you may have seen a feed full of pictures.  Our family has been having fun welcoming her home.  I have been dealing with some health issues and it has made it difficult to care for my family.  If you are interested in the “not-too-much-information-birth-story” read on toward the bottom (for those of you that asked). (Genevieve, this is for you to read {Read More}

The Blessings Jar (& a Giveaway!)

This summer has been full of family times at the beach, grandparents, pool and backyard.  Amidst the chaos, late bedtimes and little ones waking up with the sun we have had a house full of potty talk and whining. “It’s NOT fair!” Oh yes, the phrases of summer that accompany the smell of freshly cut grass.  Sayings that my 2 year old and 4 year old have grumbled before lunchtime or just before dinner. “No, that’s mine!” “Nu-Uh, NO, I {Read More}

Sometimes We Just Need to Begin Again

The first step is always the hardest. My draft box for writing is filling up as I fear hitting “publish”. As many of you know I stopped writing here when I went back to work and started taking classes. After a few months off I found it difficult to write again. Fear took over and I just pushed it aside, filling my time with more crafts and netflix. Ugh! I don’t feel like this is where I am supposed to {Read More}

Mid-Century Cinderella Gracing our Walls

This summer has been tiring and wonderful so far.  Tiring because I’m over 3o weeks along with baby girl and I’m trying to keep up with my two little munchkins at home.  Wonderful because life has slowed a bit and I’ve found time to rest amongst the chaos.  I will share a bit more later this week, but in the meantime, I wanted to let you in on a little project… I found these animal pictures in frames for probably {Read More}
