Sunday stroll. Gorgeous sights, smells and sounds. All the feels. 🍂🦌🐿🍃🍁🌾☀️🚴🏼♀️
My hands are achy and cracked from working in the dry cold. After a wave of overwhelm and wondering how my hands would last making all the nativities in my queue, I asked God to strengthen and sustain me during this busy season. Just a few hours later I recieved this message and picture that was an answer to my prayers:
"Wanted to show you that we put up our nativity today, it was so sweet telling Grant about all the pieces. I caught a glimpse of why you love making them so much, I felt the spirit so strong as I unpacked it. Love what you are doing and how it is blessing so many homes. You are doing a divine work. Don't doubt, you are amazing!!"❤
Cracked hands and all, I wouldn't trade this work. I am so grateful to see these sets in your homes. 📸:@paigenicolelloyd
This is what Sundays are all about.
God rested on the 7th day & made it h o l y. After all the work He did in creation, our God rested.
After all of the work, meetings, appointments, deadlines; after all the rushing around, scheduling, checking things off the daily to-dos, we too deserve a day of rest.
What have you done today to restore your soul, to refresh your mind, to rejuvenate your body, to reconnect with God & others?
Selfies with the best.
Made it home safely last night and ready for a day of rest and recoop with my boys.
So far, the list for today includes Mario Kart on the Switch, restocking groceries, and maybe a walk around the neighborhood. What are your recoop day faves?

Can I get an Amen?! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Lately I have been in a season of reflection due to my social media cutback and it nearing the end of the year. This season has me going back through my notes from all the influential women I have heard from this year and I keep going back to @christinecaine
talk from the @ifgathering.
I could listen to her talk over and over again! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I am human and often get caught up in the "growth" of this tiny business I run. However, it is NOT what matters. I am learning that I am right where I need to be: God has me exactly where he wants me. My mission field is right here where I am in this season of life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And you too, sweet momma, you don't have to travel to Africa to do His work. You don't have to run your own ministry to receive a promotion from Him. Just trust in Him, listen with your whole heart and use those gifts he has given you... right exactly where you are right now. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Drop me a <3 below if this spoke to you today. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

My tank is empty. Like 110%. On days like today when this momma is gonna lose her 🤬 I have to make time for myself. I came outside to get away from the screams and arguing because that stresses my own struggle to be positive. It’s a daily choice WE MAKE. My spirit craves solitude. Some people don’t understand how I like to go eat by myself, workout by myself, watch a movie by myself. I tell them “Try being a homeschooling mom and you’ll change your tune.” Well my little shadow followed. So the best I could -AMRAP 30 minutes: 12 tire flips, 10 box jump burpees, 10 push-ups, 10 hammers each side and 5 pull-ups. Some girls hate the outdoors, sweating, getting dirty, and lifting heavy but it’s the key to my “happiness.” We all cope differently- eating, sleeping, yoga, drinking, shopping - but this is how I deal with life. As I do my hammers “prayer, petition, and thanksgiving.” 😉Philippians 4:6-8 #giveittogod #sundaysabbath #mindset #reset #everyonehasabadday #justdontlivethere #feedyoursoul #liftpushpullrepeat
We were so cranky and in such bad moods before church. Afterward, we came out cheerful and refreshed. It felt like the sun had come out. I commented on it. My husband said, “That’s the effect of the Word of God.” Just hearing the Bible taught refreshes our souls.
So don’t stop going to church when you don’t feel like going. (Actually, when we don’t want to go is exactly when we do need to go to church.) And don’t be afraid to try a new church if your church isn’t refreshing your soul with worship and God’s Word being taught.
We are traveling right now, so we looked up a Calvary Chapel and were so glad we got up off of the couch and went. The kids liked their classes, too.
This was the reading in my One Year Bible early this morning: “We should not stop gathering together with other believers, as some of you are doing. Instead, we must continue to encourage each other even more as we see the day of the Lord coming.” Hebrews 10:25 Coincidence? I think not. I read it to us on the way to church. We needed to go and gather and be encouraged!
All the Sunday things..... so nice to start the week off right, a little rest, relaxation and reading.
There’s so much on our Instagram feeds that can unintentionally shift our gaze from the goodness of God and blessings right in front of us. No matter the filter, my life just isn’t instaperfect and certainly doesn’t look like many feeds I follow! How can we take this day to be intentional about chasing God instead of people? In Him is all fullness of joy, if I am willing to chase after Him. ⠀⠀
“You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.” Psalm 16:11
We have breath in our lungs and God has a plan for our lives. Aren’t you grateful for today?
Savoring the last slow breakfast with Daddy home🥞☕️. Headed to church and then sweet family time 👶✨💛. Happy Sunday, Friends! #newborn #sundaysabbath
It’s Sunday Day 6! So why not bake a treat☺️ Fudgy Brownies drizzled with cream🙌🏼 and OMGOSH sooo delish.
6 days without sugar and I think my taste buds have definitely adapted and changed(I love that fact). Nope I don’t crave sugars..in fact I don’t crave anything at all. I eat for fuel or just because I can lol💪🏼
Gluten free, dairy free, grain flours free and only has 5g of carbs(per serving). 99% sugar free, used non GMO Erythritol(much tastier than stevia) for sweetness. Sugar alcohols like erythritol aren't absorbed by the body.
I fasted breakfast and lunch.
Started the day with salt and water.
Fast broken at 4pm.
I Feel great, lots of energy, no leg cramps.
Cooked 3 pieces of bacon and could only eat 1. One thing I have found on keto choice food is I am rarely hungry👍🏼 #happyketo
