Trusting in God Pt. 1

Here we are… another month, another moment to reflect on my progress as an individual. –Wow, that sounded textbook. I’m not going to lie, this month has been filled with so many emotions. I have written this post, deleted it. Written it. Deleted it more times than I can remember. I’ve felt defeated one minute…

You were HARD 2019

Refinement. That is my word this year. So. Much. Of. It. By the beginning of the year, I was terrified of what the future held. I figured we were doomed. I felt hurt, angry, sad, but above all…WORRIED. So much of MY plan wasn’t working out. So much of what I thought we needed to…

Breathe.

Well, I’m two days into June and have yet posted what I’ve learned in May. This is my life in a nutshell. Late to the party, tired, and trying to gather all my thoughts. 🙃🤪 This last month I learned one thing. And one thing only. Breathe. Yes, just breathe. I’ve had to remind myself…

31,536,000 Seconds

31,536,000 seconds. 525,600 minutes. 8,760 hours. 365 days. 12 months. Exactly a year today. I totally didn’t plan my post today to be about this, but here I am. Writing about my crazy year of refinement. The toughest season of God refining myself and my family. I’m tired. Like, dead tired. When will we graduate…

Seeking the Little Wins

The past couple months have been tough. This month, I’ve chosen to really try to focus on the lessons that life is teaching me/us and take it all in. All the bad. All the gunk. All the selfish people around us. All the wonderful little wins. All the love our little trio (almost quartet) has….

Footprints in the Sand

As I write this, I’m exhausted. Sure, physically a smidge (with a toddler, travel, and being pregnant), but it’s more mentally. I’ve been struggling this week. Holiday season is my absolute favorite, but it also brings up so many emotions. It’s hard. It’s emotional. It’s stressful. I’ve been feeling abandoned lately. I know the Lord…
