She Reads Truth

Have you heard of “She Reads Truth”?? It’s a website and an app that encourage and give women an easy way to be in the Word of God every day. Not only that, but it’s a community of women reading through the Word of God TOGETHER daily. But if you wish to read through something other than what is the daily reading, there are a bunch of other reading plans you can use for your own daily devotions.

So many good books!! I can’t wait to share my latest reading list with you! 

The Most Beautiful Thing I’ve Seen by Lisa Gungor

We’ve all been there. One thing goes wrong and all of the sudden it feels like EVERYTHING is going wrong. When it rains it pours, right? Well, Lisa Gungor definitely experienced the showers when not only did a close friend pass away, but other relationships and her career started unraveling, her husband didn’t know if he believed in God anymore and her daughter was born with two heart defects.

On 2016, Mom Life and Turning 30.

Mom Life

You guys, life is just funny. I’ve recently realized that when I think I have it all figured out, I really don’t. “Mom life” is like trying to juggle 52 balls in the air, and realizing you can only handle 1 at a time. In reality, for me, that means just as I’m getting the hang of the mom thing, the rest of it just becomes really tough…being a good wife, a healthy cook/eater, keeping our home clean, trying to get the baby weight off [yes, it’s still there, a year later…] and trying to spend time doing things I enjoy like reading and blogging and showering.

First Focus // September

FIRST FOCUS

Goals. They’re great. They really are. They help us aim for something, work for something, and feel accomplished.

However, sometimes I can aim too high, or life gets uber busy, or let’s face it, I just don’t get to it. 

So this  month, instead of monthly goals, I’m sharing some of the thing I’ve been focusing on lately. I don’t know why, but this perspective feels more like an enjoyable journey, instead of the destination of success or failure. 

After our super busy summer, it’s been SO wonderful to be home and get back to a [somewhat] consistent routine.

April Goals.

Yesterday I woke up to Stuart reminding me that it was April Fools Day, just incase I read/saw/heard anything strange or out of the ordinary. (I tend to be slightly gullible at times…) But I still totally fell for a fake post by a Disney World site saying that Cinderella’s Castle was being redone to be “Elsa’s Ice Castle.” I was all hot and bothered and on my way to full blown outrage when Stuart pointed out that it was most likely an April Fools joke.

A Bible You Can Cuddle.

I have always LOVED to read. When I was younger I remember being so engrossed in one of the Harry Potter books, (at one of those really intense, “will Harry get killed this time??” moments,) that when my mom opened my bedroom door, I jumped off the bed and the book went flying from my hands. I love getting so lost in a book it felt like you were living life in those pages. 

Baby Faces Book Collage

One of my hopes for Knox is that he will fall in love with reading as much as I did. (Looks like he’s well on his way!) I know so much of our culture spends its’ time in front of the TV, but I want him to experience the creativity of picturing what the characters look like, instead of that information being easily provided for him on a screen.

It’s Been a While…

You may or may not have noticed that I’ve been slightly MIA from blogging lately. There’s a very good reason for that. 

NESTING. 

It’s serious, guys. I was a little critical of what exactly went into the whole nesting “thing,” but it’s for real. I am NOT one of those people who normally loves organizing or cleaning, but it’s like someone else has taken over my body and all I want to do is organize, clean, and prepare our living space for our little man.
