Don’t Hide Your Gift <3

Since the beginning of time, God has been in the fixer upper business. He doesn't generally pick those in the front of the line.  He's known for patiently waiting on those the world overlooks.  The rejected, despised, "too young," "too old," inexperienced newbies.  He takes the ones who are picked last in gym class and brings them … Continue reading Don’t Hide Your Gift ❤

Step Into the Light

Light and darkness cannot coexist. Either there is total darkness without the presence of light, or there is light overtaking the darkness.  Think about it. Your bedroom is pitch black because all lights are off. When you turn on a lamp or flip a light switch - instant light! The darkness can no longer remain … Continue reading Step Into the Light

Walk YOUR walk.

Can I be real with you? You will never write like her. You will never sing like him. Your house will never be spotless like theirs. The quicker you accept this reality, the quicker you can release that deep breath you've been holding in for so long. God isn't asking for perfection, babe, He's asking for a willing vessel. Keep doing that thing you've been prewired to do. That thing that brings you joy and others hope. Be real. Be bold. Be.. YOU. God loves you, beautiful. He loves your humility and understands your desire to reach more, help more and love more. But until more comes, be more where you are. Be the best you that you can be! And understand that it really is enough. Be content with who you are, the gifts God has given you and where He has you right now. What about you? Have you struggled with comparison? Overcome it? I'd love to hear from you! Please feel free to share your heart below or here on my Facebook page. Please share with someone if you can relate.

Fight for your VOICE! <3

  We're kicking it old school today.  You remember The Little Mermaid, right?  All those who were raised in the 90s or raised kids in the 90s said... YEAH!  🙂 Ariel had a problem.  She wasn't satisfied.  She always wanted more.  Her gidgets and gadgets satisfied only for a short while, so she decided to make … Continue reading Fight for your VOICE! ❤

How will this be?

 You know how us women are. We're about as good at thinking about things as we are at talking about them. We over think things. We think up one side and down the other. And then we think it through some more. I've been thinking. And tonight my mind has wandered to Mary. Could you … Continue reading How will this be?

Are you breathing?

If you're reading this right now it means several things. 1 - You're breathing. {Thank you, Captain Obvious.} 2 - Your heart is beating. {Captain Obvious strikes again.} 3 - You're searching for something. {Pics of a friend's newborn baby, keeping up with family that lives in another state, encouragement from a ministry you follow, … Continue reading Are you breathing?

Taking a little break <3

As many of you know, I'm on the craziest journey right now.  I've never experienced God's favor and so many open doors in my life!  God opened the door for me to have my very first article published in a local newspaper, Gulf Coast Family, for the month of July.  They've just asked me to … Continue reading Taking a little break ❤
