    SELF CARE AT HOME – ALL IT’S CRACKED UP TO BE

    With everything changing in front of our eyes and the unknown always lurking it can be a severely stressful time. Our routines are out of whack, kids are running everywhere, work is piling up (or not), and we or may not have showered in the last few days. This is when establishing and sticking to self care at home is especially important. It can be so easy to lay aside the tweezing of the eyebrows, shaving of the legs, reading of the bible, exercise of the body, and so many other essential self care things. I get it. However, when we do take care of ourselves and stick to a…

    THE KEYS TO SPIRITUAL GROWTH

    We all get to that point in our lives. We start questioning what our purpose is. I feel like these questions come up for a good reason. What’s the reason you ask? Lack of faith. Now, don’t misunderstand me here. You may have faith but how strong is your faith? How deep is your faith? How wide is your faith? A strong, deep, and wide faith is what we need, sister. When the world tries to shake us we need to be rock solid when it comes to our foundation which is Christ. No worries – I got you! Follow along for the keys to spiritual growth and what you…

    TRUSTING GOD THROUGH THE TRIALS

    I can’t find any other way to explain it.The way I look at it there are two ways I have experienced an extreme closeness with God. In my life I have felt a desired closeness when I have gone through a mega letdown, disappointment, or heartbreak. When I trust God through the trials it makes me feel closer to Him. I too have experienced this closeness after God responded to my prayer with a “human like” answer. An answer that we can understand as exactly that: AN ANSWER. Not a roundabout way of answering where we have to dig deep to really understand what He is telling us. Seriously, we…

    IS IT TIME TO DO A FULL BODY RESET?

    It’s been a few months now since we started a new year and I’m sure many of us have set new goals and made a new plan to get healthy in one way or another. As with any plan there are bound to be bumps, lane changes, detours, and stop lights along the way. Things that are worth having are not always easy (and I’m sure you’ve heard that before). So, who’s ready for a full body reset?  It’s never too late to get our act together, friends. We mess up, fail, make mistakes, go off-course…congrats, you are now part of the “I’m human” club. Welcome! But being part of…

    HOW TO MAXIMIZE SPACE IN A SMALL KITCHEN

    It’s not ideal, but there are a lot of us busy women who have kitchens that reign a tad on the small side…myself included. And, if your family is anything like mine, the kitchen is where we like to spend a large amount of our time. We like to prepare meals together, scrounge for snacks together, and just sit and chat a bit about our day. This is why I depend on some good kitchen storage planning in order to maximize the small space we have. Did you know that most people don’t utilize their full space? Utilization of space is basically how people are able to live in those…

    IS BREAD A WHOLE FOOD? – YOUR GUIDE TO WHOLE FOODS

    Have you went to a dietitian, nutritionist, or just your regular family doctor and they say “Kathy, you need to eat more whole foods.”? This question is answered by a response from you resembling a blank stare and a serious question of “Is bread a whole food?”. I’m here to tell you…it’s not. Whenever I try to guide a friend on the path of eating well I most often tell them to stick to the 80/20 rule. Eat whole food sources 80% of the time and the other 20% can be reserved for fun foods (whatever that may look like to them). Then they give me the same blank stare…”Is…

    HOW TO HAVE A HEALTHY MARRIAGE

    Marriage is hard work! And I am not going to say it doesn’t have to be…because, really – we all have to work at it. When we first get married, things are rather blissful. The last thing on our mind is the path that lies ahead of us and realizing that one day we are going to wonder how to have a healthy marriage. What does that look like and how do I make it happen? Have you been there too, friend? Have you moved past “newly wed” and right into “what are we even doing here?” You are in good company! Let us start at the very beginning and…

    How you live your life is your choice. Each day we get to choose.

    MY FINAL RESOLUTION – COMPLETE WELLNESS 

    It comes around every single year, sister. The barrage of New Year health resolutions! Everyone jumps on the train and says to themselves “this is the year. This is the time I’m going to get it right once and for all.” And you know what – good for them! But I have a question – what if we didn’t have to start over? I don’t believe there is a limit to starting over. And I firmly believe we should all have goals and aspirations for each season of life.  My final resolution this year is going to be quite simple: COMPLETE WELLNESS. I’m talking physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, organizational, relational…everything…
