Embracing My Season

embrace your season

I am a degreed military spouse stay-at-home mom. As strange as it feels to actually write it, this has been my reality for the last almost three years. I’m not finishing law school like I had hoped I would be. I’m not celebrating a big job offer. I am here—sitting on my bedroom floor writing after a long day with my raging two-year-old. But you know what? I couldn’t be happier. This is my season and I am finally fully appreciating why I am here. […]

15 Easy Ways To Practice Humility This Week

Humility is so much more than a term that we throw around when we’ve achieved a few goals and decide to keep quiet about it.

It’s been a little over a month since we’ve made the switch to a plant-based diet and if I’ve learned nothing else, I’ve learned that you have to get very creative. Veggies will always be veggies but when you learn that you can cook a potato at least five different ways and that raw cashews can make “cheese”, life gets a whole lot more interesting. For me, this journey has been so much fun and I would love to share it with you so you […]

Building An Intimate Relationship With God

intimacy God

No matter where you may be in your faith walk, intimacy with God should always be your desire. Intimacy moves beyond cookie cutter prayers, weekly church attendance, and serving in the media ministry. An intimate relationship with God says Lord, I need to be near you more than I need to fulfill my own wants and desires. James 4:8, one of my favorite scriptures says, “Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you.” Everything about this scripture lets us know that God is […]
