No matter…

No matter my successes, my failures, my finances or state of my relationships…no matter what is going on in the world or going on around me, I have peace because of Jesus!

John 14:27
Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

To all the mommies out there…

You may feel that your ministry or calling is small and insignificant, but I want to encourage you today. It very well may be that your greatest contribution to the kingdom of God is that little one that you are raising.
No matter what I accomplish in this life, my two girls are one of my highest callings here on earth. I praise God for the opportunity to raise them to know and love Jesus. It’s my heart’s desire that their lives will bring Him glory and that they will share His love with future generations. Nothing compares to the honor and privilege of being called, “Mom”.
May God bless all you mommies reading this…you are making a huge difference!
Happy Mother’s Day!

A little encouragement…

I have such a burden to help people, especially women, to live a healthy lifestyle. Our diets, stress, and lack of exercise has so much to do with how we feel. I can attest to this: When we don’t feel good it starts a cycle of unproductive days > stress > self loathing…which leads to more of the same and the cycle continues.
I want to encourage you that God has called you to lead and live a victorious life. First, a life of trust and dependence upon Him. Secondly, a life of honoring our “temple” by choosing to fuel our bodies with healthy, organic and natural foods…just the way God intended. Even when I’m trying to do my best with my diet, exercise and lifestyle, there will be days when I “fall off the wagon”, so to speak. The important thing is to not beat yourself up when those days come, (and they will). Just know and realize there’s a tomorrow…a time to start afresh.
I encourage you to choose the healthiest foods you can. It’s not too late to start. Don’t get overwhelmed, take baby steps at first. Go for it! I am praying for you!

No matter what…

No matter my successes, my failures, my finances or state of my relationships…no matter what is going on in the world or whatever is going on around me, I have peace because of Jesus!

John 14:27
Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

 

Coffee & Conversation…

Coffee and intentional conversation with my husband. We want to encourage you about something today. It’s hard, we know and understand, to set aside time for just talking and catching up with each other. We’re guilty of being so busy and missing these special moments together. It is so very important and vital to our relationship and marriage. Here are some unspoken rules we have during these¬†times:
*Never look at our phones for emails, social media, texts, etc.
*We never take or make any calls during these times.
*The only exception to the previous two rules is sending/receiving texts and/or calls from our babysitter or girls.
*Talk about us and try to learn new things about each other, (a great springboard for conversation is to reminisce
about our dating years).

Channing and I have noticed couples out where one or both are on their phones…obviously scrolling through some sort of newsfeed. This is so sad! I encourage you, when you’re with your spouse and/or family, to leave the phone down…or better yet, turn it off.
We just wanted to encourage and share with you some things on our hearts. We haven’t always gotten it right…and occasionally we have to call “time-outs” to reevaluate our time and priorities. The important thing is to keep going, keep trying and keep working at it.
Most importantly, during these special times of conversation, the key is to have fun! Stay engaged in the moment…enjoy each other, laugh, flirt and dream together.
We are praying for you!!!

No matter what…

No matter what you may be facing today, you can call upon The Lord. He longs to help you…all you have to do is ask. He wants to comfort you and protect you. Give your situation to Him today!

Psalm 18:1-3
I will love You, O Lord, my strength.
The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliver;
My God, my strength, in whom I will trust;
I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised;
So shall I be saved from my enemies.
