“You don’t get a village by sitting on the sidelines. You work to build the friends, awkwardly asking for that phone number, tentatively setting up playdates, all the while hoping that the work you are putting in will be building up the scaffolding of that village.” - Natalie Thompson (@livingbythepagewithnatalie ) for Issue 04 🌿 Read her full story in our digital issue, available now! #readflourishmotherhood #growwhereyousow #motherhoodunplugged #honestmotherhood #motherhoodmatters #motherhood #family #womenaftergodsheart #godlywomen #mamasaftergodsheart #womenintheword #motherlylove #faithlife #flourishinmotherhood #bedeeplyrooted #womenonamission #trustthejourney #christianwomen #christianwomeninbusiness #christianmom #christianmoms #womeninministry #faithinspired #joyfulmamas #womenoffaith #shereadstruth #wellwateredwomen #christiancreative #propelwomen #communityofchristiancreatives
// Birthdays . I used to love the idea of being the center of attention, the class clown, the life of the party. In all honesty, part of me still enjoys it. But as I’ve grown older, I find the less eyes on me is the better. I no longer desire that validation. . As customary, during your birthday, the entire world seemingly turns their attention to you. . Yet, my deepest desire this year, is to cultivate a culture where you turn your attention towards the overlooked, the unseen, and the forgotten as instinctively as you do wishing someone well on their birthday. Somehow we imagine the overlooked, unseen, and forgotten as distant populations in far away lands. And while that might be true, these folks are oftentimes more proximate than we believe. . So I have this idea... . Starting tomorrow, will you join me in this informal* challenge? Can we go above and beyond to love on, acknowledge, and appreciate people who might not regularly be acknowledged or appreciated? That can look like a variety of different things to different people, and that is quite alright! Here are just a few suggestions from personal experience: . ・Bless your waiter/ waitress with a tip of $100+ or 100%+ of your bill (whichever is more). ・Write a card to your office custodian or maintenance crew with a gift card for coffee. ・Say hello and draw up a conversation with your minority neighbor. ・Sit with someone new at your lunch table. ・Send someone flowers for no reason. ・Compliment everyone you encounter during your day (unique compliments people). . Remember, it's not always about the money. Yes, a simple smile or a handshake can make all the difference. But as my friend would say, "love looks like something to somebody." And as followers of Jesus, I think we can be more generous with our love. . If at the end of this, you have an awesome testimony or want to share an idea, I'd love to hear all about it. Although we're not here to check boxes, we're here to radically love. Remember, your actions are seen and adored by our Father. Like, comment, share, repost this if you wish but most importantly, just do the stuff. And then do it again!
We have so much to be grateful for in this life. Each and every day. But reality is that sometimes constant life demands, struggles, and worries give more room to defeat than to a heart of thanks. Or we forget, in the midst of busyness and pressures, just to pause and give thanks, for all that God has done, and continues to do in our lives. . . . Sometimes it really is a sacrifice to offer praise and thanks. We may not feel like it. We’re struggling. We're weary. Or maybe, we feel like He let us down. We think God seems distant, like he's far away, or doesn't really care about what's troubling us. Painful life blows and losses might have recently sent us spiraling. But here’s what can make a lasting difference. . . . We have a choice, every day, to give him thanks. And with a heart of thanksgiving, we realize that no matter what we face, God doesn’t just work to change our situations and help us through our problems. He does more. He changes our hearts. His power, through hearts of gratitude and focused minds on Him, releases the grip our struggles have over us. We're strengthened by His peace, refueled by His joy. . . . God's Word is filled with many reminders of how powerful and vital a thankful heart can be in this world. . .

BREATHE IN GRATITUDE, EXHALE PRAISE | Our spiritual perspective can sometimes get all fuzzy, especially at the start of the week or whenever we feel overwhelmed by life. Take some time every day, a jog in the morning, a trip to the toilet, the train journey back from work or in the midst of doing housework. Take time to seek out little crumbs or chunks of reasons to be thankful for. We will realise the grace that we have missed out seeing and remove the blindfold upon our hearts, that has been preventing us from praising and restoring joyful footsteps with the Lord. God meets us at every moment of our day. So, take a breather up in prayers. . #create #christian #faith #love #hope #christ #jesus #god #word #grace #instadaily #igers #creative #christiancreative #blessed #christianliving #truth #illustratedfaith #bedeeplyrooted #goodnewsfeed #theeverydayproject #lovelysquares #theblessedrun #craft #calledtobecreative #ymitoday #vsco #youth #singapore
#findthejoytoday // Day 12:⠀ ⠀ As mentioned in my intro, I frequent local coffee shops. ⠀ My automatic go to, no matter where I’m at, is a chai tea latte but today I walked in the door of a brand new (to me, anyway!) coffee shop and I was determined to branch out and order something new. ⠀ As soon as I laid eyes on my hazelnut latte {with a double shot of espresso} I was so thankful that I chose to mix it up today.⠀ I felt an instant thankfulness for the talent that my sweet barista had.⠀ I stopped and took in the moment—the moment where I could #findthejoytoday ⠀ As the day went on, I proceeded to think about all of the different ways that the gifts, talents, passions, and abilities of others have blessed my life. ⠀ Today it just happened to come in the form of a beautiful coffee drink, and for that my heart was overflowing with gratitude.⠀ What has that looked like for you today, or recently? How have you been able to #findthejoy in your day because of others?⠀ ⠀ Much Love (and coffee art),⠀ Taryn ⠀ @taryn.it.uppppp ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #getaftergrateful #thanksgiving #november #happynovember #thankful #givethanks#christiancreative #christiancreativecommunity #womenintheword #bedeeplyrooted #yourinfluence #givemejesus #faithinspired #gracemakers #beautyfromashes #goodnewsfeed #shedelights #chooselovely #leadhership #womeninministry #womenwholead #inspire #encourage #speaklife

// freedom // . . When you go home, tell them of us and say, for your tomorrows these gave their today. . . —February 1945— Six flag raisers [silhouetted above] would land on the Island of Iwo Jima. Only three of them would make it off. They gave their lives so that we might live in a free country. . . Ones who did make it off the island were haunted by nightmares and guilt. Many made it off with injuries that would affect the rest of their life. . . All I can say is thank you. Thank you to those who gave their tomorrow for my today. Thank you to those who fought for my future.

❤️So, this is my heart here in this picture. These kids. This place. But it's not just THIS PLACE. It's all the places. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🌎I grew up a MK (missionary kid) and moved back to America when I was about 8 years old. But I've realized something as I've gotten older...my heart is is there. It's in the nations. It is in Austria, Romania, Nigeria.❤️= 🇦🇹 🇷🇴 🇳🇬 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ❤️ I think we leave a little piece of our heart EVERYWHERE we go and that's ok, because at the end of my life I want to be SPENT. I want my life to be used up and poured out on people, in places, and doing things that make a difference. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🌎❤️What's ONE PLACE that has a piece of your heart? .

"Sing to the LORD with grateful praise; make music to our God on the harp." Psalm 147:7 . Today I'm so thankful for all of the genres of music we can use to praise God. From classical, sacred music to contemporary praise and Christian rap. The diversity of talent that God has created in us is truly amazing. May we all use our talents and creativity for His glory! . #biblejournaling #christianmusic #christiansong #givegodtheglory #cultivatewhatmatters #dailydevotional #faithinspired #illustratedfaith #faithwalk #faithoverfear #christianliving #godsart #christiancreative #faithhopelove #redeemed #getinspired #thankfultogod #thankfulandblessed

2018 has really been my year for ONE IMPORTANT reason only & that is my surrender & Baptism into Christ & let me tell you I’ve been walking in purpose ever since. It’s been two months since I made that decision & my goals, vision, and life have shifted. It’s amazing what can happen when we run to the cross.

I published the 1st @tobepraised Bible study series as a blog post on 11/11/2014. Building a brand wasn’t on my mind then, just the desire to build up other women who may have felt lonely, unsure of their future, and in need of sisterhood. Today, marks the 4 year anniversary of the site & this month I launched the @tobepraised online shop. There are shirts, mugs, writing utensils, and notecards for sale! DM or click the link in my bio to purchase. My mission has always been to remind women that they matter & deserve to be praised. Thank you to everyone who keeps supporting, loving, and inspiring me to think big & live my faith out loud! God over everything. Be great. Be well. Be love.🐝👌🏾✊🏾✌🏾#tobepraised • • • • • #loss #womanevolve #love #selflove #CTblogger #businessbabes #modernchristianwoman #womanoffaith #blacklove #christianbloggers #faithbloggers #marriage #womanevolve #Jesusgirls #youtube #christianblogger #womensupportingwomen #women #churchofChrist #ctbloggers #quotes #jesusgirl #bossbrunch #hisgracegirls #christiancreative #churchofchristwomen #tobepraised
Unplugging from the world must be intentional. If we do not take time to reflect and be still, then it is much harder for us to hear God. If we are not actively listening to what God is telling us then how can we discern what He wills for our lives? How does the person who never takes time to be still know if he or she is running in the right direction? People who chose not to take time to be still are afraid to be still. It’s like looking in a mirror- we know what we are you going to see and we know we don’t like it. Some things we have to accept for they way they are but some things we have the ability to change. . In solitude, we confront our own soul with its obscure forces and conflicts that escape are attention when we are interacting with others. . When God created and rested on the last day He paused- and reflected on what He had done. We must also Pause with a Purpose. Reflect. Review. Readjust as necessary. . #illustratedfaith #biblejournaling #biblestudy #womenoffaith #christiancreative #artjournal #journal #journaling #journalingbible #faithjournaling #documentedfaith #shepaintstruth #scripture #blackandwhite #pause #purpose #bnw #biblejournalingcommunity #redsjab

November 12. Protective Father. Artwork and thoughts by Jessica N. Gray © 2018 How have you seen Him at work protecting you, even today? Me?

The circumstances around you may be disappointing or even appear hopeless, but God is working on your behalf to bring beauty out of the ashes. Our “But God” bracelet is for the woman who rests, knowing that her God is a miracle-working God. Do you know a woman who could use this reminder?
*SUPER SNEAK PEEK* I am so excited to announce that along with @faith_seeds ministries we are releasing our very first advent devotional! It will be a fully downloadable resource and completely free of charge! You simply have to be a member of our bible journaling group on Facebook, “Scripture Art and Journaling” (search on FB or reach out on the Hipster Housewife FB page and I can link you) to have access to a beautiful, daily devotional written by my friend and mentor, Sue, and illustrated/lettered by yours truly. Did I mention it’s completely FREE?? It was a true labor of love, different in style from my typical work (and in content than your typical advent devo) and I am super humbled and excited to see how the Lord will use this! Our creative team on the FB page will be sharing different ways to use the printables, providing plenty of examples, how to’s, and encouragement. Sue and I will be going live this Friday in the group to share a bit more of our heart behind the project and more of the design work. The last week in November it goes up and will be available for download. I so hope you will join us during this sacred and special advent season! Any questions, don’t hesitate to ask ❤️❤️ . . . . . . . . #gracemakers #thegraceletters #societyofbiblepainters #beautifulcover #choosejoy #christiancreative #calledtobecreative #createdtocreate #lifelivedbeautifully #bedeeeplyrooted #biblejournalingcommunity #biblejournaling #lampandlight #shepaintstruth #shereadstruth #beautifulbible #christiancommunity #womenintheword #paintedbible #letteringhislove #letteryourfaith #advent #adventdevotional #illustratedfaith #communityofchristiancreatives #documentedfaith #advent2018
Do you want to do things in your own strength or in the POWER of the Holy Spirit? . I attempted to mount a bookshelf to a wall with the manual screwdriver on the left. All I accomplished was a measly little hole in the bookshelf and a lot of frustration on my end. . When I finally decided I am not strong enough for this I got out the power drill. What I could not accomplish at all on my own strength was easily done in a matter of minutes with the power drill. My bookshelf is now securely fastened to the wall! . How much of our lives are like using the little screwdriver on the left - full of stress and frustration only to find that we did not get what we needed accomplished? Let’s be a people who operate in the POWER of the Holy Spirit! . In Jesus we have the same unlimited measure of the Holy Spirit and power to accomplish the will of God here on Earth.
I’m just a means to an end...⠀ ⠀ My love of writing started with this picture ⬆️ ⠀ Crumbs & Glamour was the original name of the blog that I started... about two and a half years ago. Then I rebranded into She Is Reclaimed. And now on Instagram I just go by @amarisbeecher - I’ve done a lot of trial and error.⠀ ⠀ However, the thing I’ve come to be certain of is that I am just a means to an end...⠀ The end being Christ.⠀ ⠀ Whatever writing alias I go by, I hope you draw closer to Christ through me. That my writings would stir your affections to draw nearer to the one who gave EVERYTHING to be in relationship with you. ⠀ ⠀ That you would see Christ in me, and if you don’t, stop following me. ⠀ ⠀ My desire for each one of these little square pictures, is that you might know Christ more abundantly. That you would know His fullness in a way that leaves you changed forever. ⠀ ⠀ Goodnight y’all 💛⠀ Xo!
Sweet friend, God has gifted you. God has equipped you with all the tools you need to live as His child and enjoy a life worthy of celebration in a world of darkness. God has prepared you for the road ahead, no matter what that might look like for you. Trust in Him, in His love, and in the gifts He's given you. Your skills and talents are no accident💛
Guys, I love giving gifts and all but sometimes it just stresses me out to the max!! Like, will she like this? Is he going to be offended by what I'm insinuating with this? Is this too cheap? Will this arrive in time? Does she already have this? Will he even use this? Will she tell everyone how silly it was that I got her this? OH BOYS. Typing that out makes me feel a little crazy. Maybe I am, but I know that those feelings combined with the stress of having to get a last minute gift right before christmas makes me want to skip the holiday altogether. If you're with me on this, let's make the decision to start shopping NOW. There are a group of makers having sales before black friday so you can get a #handmadeholidayheadstart ! Click the hashtag (do I daresay even follow the hashtag?) to check out the shops! 🎁 Does gift giving stress you out or are you a natural? 🎄 Also, this may or may not be a sneak peak at one of the new prints that will be available verrry soon!!!
Do you pray the minute you show a house...or when enter a house to list it? It's a simple thing to do but yet so very powerful. When you enter a house, first say, "Peace to this house." Luke 10:5 It's simple but I always try to leave His peace in a home.

Happy Monday Friends!!! I know the holidays are quickly approaching and it’s easy to get lost in the stress. I encourage you, however, to continue to thank the Lord throughout your day. If we were to look back a year ago from today, or five or ten years ago, what has changed? I can think of so many things the Lord has done in my life, that at the time I thought there was no hope for. He has sovereignly ordained all things. He has strengthen my faith through the struggle for His own purpose. So that he may be glorified through my life. Nothing the Lord does is ever in vain.

Have you ever sprinted across lush green meadows filled with wildflowers, belting in pure joy like Maria from the Sound of Music? Well, I haven't either 😋 but it's soo on my bucket list! Please don't judge me, I like the little things 😅 . But seriously, how liberating it would be? Running with childlike enthusiasm and experiencing sheer joy.. pretending all the troubles and mundane *adulting* stuff doesn't exist? Like a carefree little girl chasing butterflies🦋 . Sounds like a dream hey? Well it doesn't have to be. What if I told you you could actually experience that feeling of pure joy and freedom, no matter what situation you're in? Come to Christ who'll set you free! Free from everything that weighs you down - fear, hopelessness, insecurity, brokenness and most importantly, from the wrath that is to come! Your circumstances may or may not change but He'll fill you with hope and peace that passes all human understanding. For in Him we have eternal security and freedom🥰 . Btw, if you actually answered yes to that first question, that's awesome and I am *not at all jealous.. ahem*!!
“When a train goes through a tunnel and it gets dark, you don’t throw away the ticket and jump off. You sit still and trust the engineer.” - Corrie ten Boom We have had so much incredible feedback from Dans message yesterday. We pray that it impacted each of you and that no matter the pain you are experiencing, that by paying attention to Jesus you remember his kindness and let the Power of God through the Gospel bear the burden of your heart. If you missed the message (Or want to listen to it 100 more times.) You can watch it on Facebook Live or listen to it on the Mission Church podcast. #wearemission
📣Just because something is hard, doesn’t mean He hasn’t called you to it. Ease doesn’t always mean ordained. Instead let’s ask for an extra helping of peace tonight and strength to place our security in His faithfulness and not our confidence.

“...reject Godless ways...live temperately, justly, and devoutly in this age...” Titus 2:12 The underlying theme of St. Paul’s letter to Titus is the need for righteous Christian living in the midst of an evil world. If we think the world today is hostile to Christians and full of corruption and deception, it was the same in Paul’s time. I can’t help thinking the fascinating life of Freddie Mercury, the main character of the biopic Bohemian Rhapsody, could have been one of the parables Jesus told. “There once was a man, so gifted and talented, that he had the whole world at his feet. When he would sing and strut on the stage, tens of thousands would sing and dance with him. But when he was alone with his cats in his magnificent Georgian mansion in London’s upscale Kensington borough, he was tormented by demons and loneliness. He thought that crowding his house with music and drinking, and guests and raucous laughter, would fill the emptiness in his heart. He thought that tempestuous relationships would still the hunger inside him for more, but only betrayal and disaster greeted him.” What do we fill our life with? What do we hunger for? Freddie Mercury’s life shows that even if we attain the highest peak in our career, and could have anything in the world money can buy, we still would not have the peace and joy we need to live a full, satisfying life. St. Augustine said it best, “Our hearts are restless until it finds its rest in Thee.”
