15 Easy Ways To Show Grace And Kindness This Week

If you had to rate on a scale from  1 to 10 (10 being the most) how much grace and kindness you’ve shown in the last few weeks, where would you be? A 5? A close 9? Wherever you may fall on the scale, I’m going to go ahead and guess that we all (myself included) have plenty of room to show more. For many of us, Monday through Friday, we’re so busy with life that stopping to think about giving more grace and kindness than we already give is almost unthinkable. But here’s the thing: Jesus is the embodiment of grace and kindness and if we’re going to be children of the Most High, we need to practice the same.  So, I want to give you 15 easy ways to show grace and kindness this week that will barely require any real work but will still bless you (and others) tremendously.

Tips For “Being Still” When Moving Is What You Do Best

being still

I have a confession: I’m a bit of a busy body. I like things done when I want them done, how I want them done, and I’m prepared to do it all on my own. This trait has been really useful in this age of digital DIY but let’s be honest, it hasn’t always been the best when God has needed for me to just stand still. I’ve faced it— I am a mover and sometimes standing still and trusting that God will come through in the timeline that I’ve envisioned is just downright hard. It wasn’t until my husband and I went to our pre-marital counseling that I learned the reasoning behind some of my behavior. Beneath all of the planning, the hyper-organization, and the desperate need to take initiative was a very real fear of failure. Even though I didn’t realize it, taking control was my way of […]

Spiritual Survival Kit | Knowing When To Speak Up And When To Sit Down

when to speak

In today’s society, oversharing and saying exactly what you feel at the exact moment that you feel it has become the norm. I’m all for a good emotional cleanse and for keeping it real but from a Christian standpoint, there are times where we should speak up and times where we should probably have a seat. Whether you’re facing confrontation, trying to decide whether or not to post something on social media, or just deciding to pass on something that you’ve heard, it’s always a good idea to stop and consider whether or not what you have to say is really worth saying. I’ve seen this a thousand times (and I’m sure you have too) but here’s a great, short and sweet but powerful guide to help you think through what you want to say: T: Is it true? H: Is it helpful? I: Is it inspiring? N: Is it […]

On Success And Thriving| Three Reasons Why You’ll ALWAYS Have A Seat At The Table

success seat table

In a world where social media is king, it’s easy to look at a picture of the girl in business attire seated behind the wheel of a new Beamer and question your own level of success. I’m no stranger to this type of thing but I am constantly reminded of the fact that there is only one me in this world and that there will never be another human being that could ever be more successful at being me…than me. Today I want to remind you of the same. No matter how many talented people there may be in this world, no matter how many degrees she may have or how qualified that woman on Twitter may seem, there will always be a seat at the table for you. Let me give a few reasons why: No one else can bring what you bring to the table God created you […]

How To Create A Christ-Centered Morning Routine

morning routine

  I think most of us will agree that mornings are probably the most hectic part of the day next to sitting around in 5-o’clock traffic.  We’re rushing to get ready for work (or to start the daily to-do list), scoffing down the quickest breakfast that we can find, trying to beat the rush on the highway, and if you have children then there’s no need for me to explain—hectic is more than likely the norm in your world. The tricky thing about mornings is that we have no earthly idea what we’re going to wake up to. We could wake up and find that the dog has chewed a hole in the carpet. We could wake up to a broken coffee pot (God forbid because I can’t even imagine). And more seriously, we could pick up our smartphones and find that an active shooter is locked inside of an […]
