    2020 A.K.A. – A SEASON OF GRACE

    Welp, it’s not a secret. I think most of us have found ourselves in a season of grace this year, myself included. Just when you think something will last forever things change. What is life but a huge pile of good ol’ change, eh? And sometimes, when we least expect it, we find ourselves smacked up the side of the head with a huge flying pile of steaming “change” and are expected to deal with it gracefully. But dealing with change gracefully is not our first instinct, is it ladies? That’s when we give a huge shout out to the whole idea of A SEASON OF GRACE. HOT MESS IN…

    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…

    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…

    CREATE THE LIFE YOU WANT TO LIVE – HOW TO START FRESH

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

It’s never too late to start over, friend. God gives us a new day each time we wake up to get it right.  This post may contain affiliate links. You can…

    HOW TO PUT CHRIST BACK INTO CHRISTMAS

    I absolutely love Christmas. The snow, the lights, the fireplaces roaring, the candles burning with a cinnamon scent, cookies everywhere…just the coziness of it all! But with all the hustle and bustle – Christmas parties, gift shopping, family outings, etc.,- we can get distracted by all the “flashy things” and forget what Christmas is all about. To celebrate Christmas the proper way – let’s put CHRIST back into Christmas! So, how do we keep our focus? How do we put Christ back into Christmas and keep Him there? There are ways to redirect our focus and do it often so we don’t fall trap to the commercialism of our Savior’s…

    GRATITUDE – HOW TO LIVE A LIFE OF JOY

    Tis’ the season sweet friend. The season where everyone does their best to shift their focus from what brings them misery to what brings them a grateful heart.  Why is it just this season? If gratitude is the key to happiness, why wouldn’t we KEEP our focused shifted? I have an idea as to why- I believe we don’t make showing gratitude a key foundation part of our everyday routine, therefore it’s easy to forget and let our minds run elsewhere. Let’s change that, shall we? Follow along as we dig into how we can bring more joy into our everyday life by keeping our focus on being grateful. This…

    HOW TO STUDY THE BIBLE IN 5 EASY STEPS

    Unless our soul is well – we will always remain unwell. I firmly believe that we all need Jesus in our lives. He came into a broken world to save a broken people. Think of yourself as a vase. When we are born we are a vase with cracks and some missing pieces. When we accept Jesus he is the missing pieces and the glue that makes us whole. Now, as a complete vase we are able to hold the abundance of love, joy, and peace he pours into us. But more than that – he fills us so much that we end up pouring out onto all those around…

    Purposeful passion.

    Do you feel as though you have been called to something….or not? Maybe you have questioned if it is – in fact – a calling. Did you hear Him right? Or have you thought “there are already so many people doing the same thing…why could He possibly need you to do it too?” Friend, I’ve been there. I have so many things I am passionate about. Different seasons however, bring different passions. I have felt discouraged, unmotivated, uninspired. There have been times when I too have wondered if what I have to say will make any difference at all. Can I encourage you (and myself) in this? I just love…

    God is perfect…so we don’t have to be.

    Yes, you heard that right! Did you know that you are made the way you are for a reason? God made you to bring Him glory. So, when he created you he gave you everything you needed to accomplish this work. You don’t have to strive. You just have to accept. Accept who He made you to be, where He has placed you, and how He has equipped you. This rabbit race we are in is not his intention or desire for us. We need to stop the cycle. We need to rest. Rest in HIS goodness. Eventually, because we are made new in Christ, we will make those decision…
