I can’t believe we’ve just moved out of this house and I never showed you the After photos of my office redo. For that, I am so sorry! It really is/was a gorgeous room that inspired me to write and create and be myself. But first…a few before photos. Now I realize this is not […]
Have you ever read a book you made yourself put down for a few days…simply because you didn’t want it to end? That was me with this book. I wasn’t ...
I remember one singular thing about our pre-marital counseling. Our friend and pastor told us, “You can tell a woman is loved well, simply by looking into her eyes.” That’s ...
Since there has been such a dumping of snow all over the US, I figure more families are snuggled up together on the couch watching films together. So I thought ...
Good morning! If you’ve been following along via Instagram or read my post earlier in the week about my friend Heather, you know I’m hosting an Instagram Auction today! I just wanted to make sure…absolute sure…you knew about it so you could bid, if you’re interested! Remember, all proceeds go to Heather’s ministry as she […]
Have you ever received an unexpected dream or vision from The Lord? Well, meet my friend Heather. She sure has. We met years ago when I lived in San Antonio. She had three boys right around the same time I did…our husbands have the same name…and we both love all things pretty & creative. And […]
Good morning! Goodness, I still can’t believe Valentines Day is only a few days away! I kept putting off posting these Bible Verse Lunch Notes because I absolutely cannot find the cords to plug in my printer. Sigh…a downside of moving, I suppose. I had planned on printing them out and taking photos of them […]
I spent a lot of time praying about what verse(s) God wanted me to both dwell upon this month, as well as to share with you. And as always, He made it abundantly clear what I was in need to put to heart and memorize: Ephesians 4:2-3. I’m hoping it’s something that He will speak to […]
Ok friends, be excited. I was trying to decide what book to choose for this month and this morning during my quiet-time I found it. Ok, admittedly I got a little distracted toward the end of my devotions and started playing on Instagram. I know, I know…I should’ve had my phone in the other room. […]
I’m not gonna lie, it’s pure craziness over our way right now. Boxes. Dirty clothes + no way to wash them. Stray items that we somehow “need” but don’t yet have a home. I’ve done so many loads to Goodwill, they know me by name. Ok, not really…but wouldn’t that be fun? Last Thursday night was […]
Whether you’ve read this book, read part of this book, or have simply heard a ton about it and have wanted to read it, keep reading. Why? Because The Nesting Place is one of those books that gets-ya. It’s like a punch in the gut and a kiss on the forehead at the same time. One […]
I have a few sweet friends who I haven’t seen for awhile. Friends I miss greatly after moving away from San Antonio and toward Denver. They’re the kind of women of substance who want to know the real, nitty gritty part of one another’s lives. (source) Without fail…whether it’s over an open Bible or a […]
Have you been reading The Nesting Place for our (Virtual) Book Club this month? Oh. My. Gosh. Doesn’t it have you seeing your home differently?! I’ve marked mine all up in sharpie, it’s so good. Well, even if you’re not finished with it yet, I hope you still swing by this Friday, January 30th as […]
As you may know, I contribute over at GLOW: Live as Light from time to time. They’re an amazing Christian lifestyle blog who helps women strive to live as the light of Christ. The blog features authentic stories about Jesus loving women, encouraging each other as we walk through life together, daily pursuing Him. Today I posted over […]
I’m training for a half-marathon. I type that as I laugh to myself. I should actually say I am “training” because I’m totally not. Ben says it’s going to be the longest walk of my life. Sigh, so true. I’ve done two half marathons before. Not long after birthing Anton & Laith, if you can […]
Oh Lord Jesus, thank you that we live in such a time as this. A time where my family can actually BE a family. Thank you for Martin Luther King Jr and his dream. Thank you that times have changed…and continue to change. For years, I have heard of these flesh colored crayons…and finally found […]
Can you believe we’re still not officially in the new house?! Sigh. I’m tired of sleeping with mattresses on the ground…let’s get this show on the road! If you follow us on Facebook or Instagram, you’ll know the poor painters took so much longer than expected. And actually, I’m in Texas right now so although […]
Hi! I’m excited to tell you that today I’m being interviewed over at the (amazing) Kristin Schmucker‘s blog! Do you know and follow her? She is an inspiration, inside and out. She talks a lot about studying God’s word (she writes Devotionals/Bible Studies!!!) and life as a mom and woman of great faith. And her […]
Last summer I did a post on the chore board we made for the kids (and how amazing it’s been for our daily routine). Lately though, I’ve had tons of questions about the gold lettered magnets at the bottom of the board. So listen up all you ladies who hate the word diy (ok, the acronym) […]
Happy January! Thanks for bearing with me as we skipped Book Club for December. I had so many messages after our attempt in November saying you started the book or had wanted to start the book, but the Thanksgiving & Christmas season proved to be a little too crazy to participate fully. So…it’s a new […]
Happy (almost) new year! I thought I’d do a little round-up of favorite posts from this year but remembered that when I did my big blog-redo a few months ago, somehow I lost every.single.like on every.single.post. Sigh. Technology. A blessing and a curse. So rather than doing the most liked…I’m doing MY most liked! And if […]
Guess what?! We close on a new house today! I know what you’re thinking…weren’t they just remodeling a house? Ummmm yes. Yes we were (see pics of our current remodel here). As you’ll remember, we bought our current home shortly after moving to Denver. Back when we had four kids and didn’t think we would […]
Merry Christmas, a few days belated! Thanks for your understanding as I took this week off from blogging to spend some unplugged time with the family! My parents flew in from San Antonio and we spent some time in Breckenridge at a sweet friends home who was out of town herself. What a blessing generous […]
