Usually when a song gets stuck in my head, ,I’ve noticed that it’s a message i either can relate to, need to hear, or can identify with . The past few days I’ve listened to “the hills and valleys “ and something has rang so true. In my lowest of lows , in my darkest places , I’ve remembered to love on God . Sometimes that was saying nothing but just being in silence with him. Sometimes I’ve even gotten fired up and let him know about it. I don’t hide the way i feel or what I’m dealing with from God I’m real with him . Not because it’s what’s “right” but because he is truly my best friend... the rock on which I stand... the one thing that never ever changes and loves me more than I could ever understand. In the highest points of my life, when things have been better than ever, I’m overwhelmed with gratitude and feel his love and presence so strong. Keeping him first means feeling love for him. Actually FEEL it. Not just doing daily rituals , but taking time to say hey You big man, thanks for waking me up, thanks for loving me. Just spend time with him the same way you would a friend. Don’t look at God like he’s something so much greater than you that you’re too small to matter to him . He created you. He loves you. He gave you free will because what good is love or a relationship if you don’t get to decide or have say in it ? He could’ve created us to merely love him and not have our own thoughts, but he wanted us to have a choice. He wants you , always will. • •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• “I've walked among the shadows You wiped my tears away And I've felt the pain of heartbreak And I've seen the brighter days And I've prayed prayers to heaven from my lowestplace And I have held the blessings God, you give and take away No matter what I have, Your grace is enough No matter where I am, I'm standing in Your love You are God of the Hills and valleys..I am not alone.” #notalone #hillsandvalleys #godislove #showlove #truth #jesus #loveyourself #themessage #fitfam #fitnesswomen #fitnesscoach #fitlife #foodforthought #successmindset #seekhim
You're the God of Hills and Valleys. Lately I feel like this season of my life I'm in has been this song. There's been a lot of smiles and a lot of tears, a lot of happy moments and a lot of sad ones but no matter what each day brings whether it be a mountain top or the valley I know my God is always there. 💜 #hillsandvalleys

Welcome back ladies! 💕 Last year, with our theme #HillsandValleys , we learned how God will carry us through our highs and lows. We are thrilled to reveal our new theme, #BeStill on this #MotivationalMonday . Throughout the Fall and Spring semester you may encounter doubt, stress, or concerns but through it all we must reflect on what scripture tells us. Psalms 46:10 states “Be still and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” Place your doubts, stress, or concerns into the hands of God and know that He will meet EVERY need. We hope you enjoy this teaser of #BeStill by Travis Greene!

I had very early morning bath and shower to see if the heat would help with my back. I plopped onto my bed just after 7am and haven't moved since. Too damn sore. If I could have a Thai massage right now I would! Going to double dose on my muscle relaxant and hope for the best instead. #sore #backpain #hillsandvalleys #deadweight #gettingoldblows #ineedamassage

Last week was beyond what I was expecting. I'm having a hard time finding words for our time in Haiti. We had interpreters helping us communicate but it wasn't a 1:1 ratio so a lot of the time when playing with the kids we weren't having conversations like I would with someone who could speak my language. The beautiful part is that we didn't need to be speaking the same language to connect. Love is the same in every language and a hug and a smile go a lot further than I even realized. My heart aches for the things these children don't even realize they are going without. My heart is filled with joy for all the love they do have. When you see a community of people living on a mountain without power or shoes or diapers for their babies but can feel Gods love surrounding them it's impossible to leave unchanged. I will tell you one thing I'll be sure to hug a little longer, smile a little brighter, and love a little bigger and I learned that from the people on the mountain in Zorange, Haiti. I'll be forever grateful 💗 . . . #blessed #Godisgood #changed #missions #hillsandvalleys #reallove #miracles #haiti #children #childlikefaith #community #missionstrip
We’ve all heard of Woodstock. If you’re like me you’ve conjured up an image of a huge mud-filled, tie dyed, long haired,cannabis infused bacchanalia almost 50 years ago. I’m also getting cartoon images of “ The Yellow Submarine “...funny... it’s a culturally ingrained iconic archetype of the 1960’s. Well, for one thing, the big mud pit was not even in the town of Woodstock but 43 miles southwest of actual Woodstock. ...but in visiting Woodstock yesterday 49 years later I felt the residual energy and mindset of the 1960’s . A local merchant said “ If you think about the tone of the Mid Hudson Valley, Woodstock is the Upper West Side and Rhinebeck is the Upper East Side transplanted for weekend and summer getaways.”...Maybe. Even a flea market was filled with pony-tailed baby boomers and lots of ...mud!! 😊🌈! ...I loved the combined time warp of hippy baby boomers with the new resurgence of millennials in folksy skirts and bandanas. It was a trip to a town and an era. New York State has so much beauty. #weekend #Woodstock #folksy #retro #1960s #upstate #daytripnewyork #ulstercountyny #avivaisanimagotherapist #imagotherapy #nature #calm #beautyinnature #tiedye #yellowsubmarine #midhudsonvalley #history #iconic1960s #hillsandvalleys #waterfallsofny #lovepeacehappiness

Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil.. Psalm 23:4 We can walk through some extremely dark times in our lives. We can hit some valleys that can bring us down. But understand, you were not created to live this life alone. God is always there to be along side us in those impossible times. You just need to run into His arms and know that He will get you through it. He is in control. #trusthim www.forgivenstock.com
Erm hrm. Sooo, does this mean A) the valley is the easy part before it gets hard as you climb the hill? B) the valley is the low part and the view from the top of the hill is the payoff? C) A fond reminder of Tour du Mont Blanc fun? #upanddown #downandup . #valleysandhills #hillsandvalleys #peaksandvalleys #peaksandtroughs #fortunecookieconundrum #fortunecookieconfusion #fortunecookie #chinesefood #sundayfunday
This summer I got a pretty rad opportunity to serve with Camp Hope. Not only has it played a big role in this summer but also this season of life and I have no doubt it will ripple through my life time. God just reveals himself in the craziest of ways and you learn a lot by being the hands and feet of Jesus. Sure it is so easy to say yes and serve during the hills when it’s easy peasy lemon squeezey . The real question is what happens when we’re in the valleys? Truth is not matter what we do there are moments of hills and moments of valleys. I think that’s when our heart and our motives are the most transparent. And if we don’t give up when it’s hard that’s when God can grow and stretch us . Ya know funny things happen when you step into a role of a counselor. You gain LOTS of perspective. You meet kids and you want to grow a relationship in the matter of seconds. You’re in charge of keeping them safe. You try to gain their trust and push them outside their comfort zone. Even thought sometimes they might might not listen you love them through it. And when I think about it, God can be a lot like the camp counselor and 99.999% of time we are the camper. We put walls up and we try to push him out. Things can get scary and we start questioning if we can trust him. And there are times we’re not obedient to what he says or we think our way is just better. Good news is we have the right guy on the job who loves us Unconditionally, gives a ton of grace and won’t leave our side no matter how hard we try. So it’s okay if not every moment in whatever we do is rainbow and butterflies but every moment is a learning opportunity and we can choose to be Jesus. 💙🖤❤️

Cuppa in the Kennerdell tunnel while we waited for a storm to pass. We retreated far into the tunnel to escape the rain drenched winds that blew into the entrance. Once the heaviest of the storm passed, we sipped hawt drank and watched the fog roll in for awhile before setting off on the Allegheny River trail. . . . #biketouring #bikepacking #biketravel #traintunnel #hillsandvalleys #cuppa #coffeebreak #tourdechase #hawt #dranks #smeagol #gollum #hisprecious
Romeo and Juliet closed two weeks ago today and I have been processing the experience ever since. Building this show was one of the most rewarding artistic experience of my life and leaving it behind has been both emotionally draining (saying goodbye to both this project and, even more so, to the friends I have made) and uplifting (the opportunity to see my vision come to life - it has left me with optimism for future productions and artistic endeavors). Working on Shakespeare gives a director a certain amount of freedom - both to cut down the text to fit their needs (either for running time or for directorial vision) and to add elements if they so choose (dance, music, unique settings, etc.). I tried to combine the elements of theatre that I love the most (organic movement, meta-theatrical elements, frozen tableau, fast transitions, sparse-to-no set, taking properties or set pieces and manipulating them into creating something new, etc.) with the text of Romeo & Juliet to create something that had my stamp on it while remaining true to the language and spirit of the play. I was incredibly happy with the results. The ensemble of players I was blessed to work with brought my vision to life better than I could have ever dreamed. Their talents and dedication made the world of the play come alive and gave a unique insight to each of the characters. I will be forever grateful to my Romeo, Andrea Acuna, and my Juliet, Heather Warren. They set the tone for the production and were the most generous, supportive, and courageous actors I could have ever asked to work with. I have learned so much from this process, first and foremost, that I can tackle the works of Shakespeare and help bring them to life on stage. This production has helped clarify what I think of as my aesthetic, what I need in a production, in an ensemble, and from myself. I hope that I have come out of the last 18-months of work on this show a stronger director who is able to articulate his vision with greater clarity and economy. I will miss my R&J family but take great solace that even though the show is over, we’re forever connected through this amazing experience.

Hey 👋🏼 Happy Sunday friends! We hope you all are well and are enjoying some sweet time with family this Sunday. We are so excited to share we are getting closer in the process to becoming active- we are in the midst of lots of paper work and it’s seeming in about 2-3 months we will be active and able to be shown to expectant mamas.💗 We are so grateful to tell y’all that our TShirt fundraiser raised enough money to cover our homestudy fee & our finger printing fees!!! Such a blessing and we are so thankful! Would you join with us in prayer?! We have close to $4,000 left that we need to raise by the time we go active ( about 3 ish months ). We have absolute confidence that Lord will provide- where God guides, God provides. However, sometimes that’s hard to cling to and remember. So would you lift us in prayer and pray for us to have the faith that He would provide. Would you share this post for us? We believe the more people that share the more people outside our circle of friends will be reached and we will have an army of believers on the front line with us, praying and believing together! If you are feeling prompted in anyway to help fund us further and be apart of the community that is helping us to grow our family in such a beautiful way- I’ve added the link to our adopttogether Page where you have the option of a tax deductible donation. We thank each of you in advance for the prayers we know you will be covering us in- we are so grateful for this community ❤️❤️ https://adopttogether.org/families/?fundraiser=ceravolo-family-adoption Clickable link is in my bio! • • • #christfollower #adoption #adoptionrocks #adoptioncommunity #ttccommunity #infertility #hillsandvalleys #fundraising #grants #adoptionfunding #prayers #prayerwarriors #church #lovemakesafamily #family #rattled #beautyfromashes
A journey has hills and valleys, but you are never alone. This song has been consistently in my head recently and a great reminder.

I walked slowly to enjoy this freedom, and when I came out of the mountains, I saw the sky over the prairie, and I thought that if heaven was real, I hoped it was a place I never had to go, for this earth was greater than any paradise. #travelphotography #instapic #traveler #travelgram #nagaland #dzukouvalley #intothenature #hillsandvalleys #mountain #totravelistolive #serendipity #wanderlust
I've walked among the shadows, You wiped my tears away. And I've felt the pain of heartbreak And I've seen the brighter days And I've prayed prayers to heaven from my lowestplace And I have held the blessings God, you give and take away No matter what I have, Your grace is enough No matter where I am, I'm standing in Your love On the mountains, I will bow my life To the one who set me there In the valley, I will lift my eyes to the one who sees me there When I'm standing on the mountain, I didn't get there on my own When I'm walking through the valley, I know I am not alone! You're God of the hills and valleys! Hills and Valleys! God of the hills and valleys And I am not alone! Father, you give and take away Every joy and every pain Through it all you will remain Over it all! . . . . @taurenwells "Hills and Valleys". . . . #moderncalligraphy #tombowfudenosuke #brushlettering #songlyricstoliveby #christianblogger #godisreal #hillsandvalleys #thankfulforgodsgrace #allineedisjesus #hisgraceisenough #christiancalligraphy
“God knows. Everything else is irrelevant. You shine in His eyes. You ARE important. You ARE valuable. Pain and misfortune has nothing to do with His love for you. It has everything to do with what He is going to do through you. You are amazing just the way He made you and nothing can change that. No one can change that. Walk in authority today, be it in sunshine or rain. He made it all and He is in it all.” - - - I wrote this four years ago today. I took this picture five years ago today. God knew I would need them both today. - - - “ Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. -Philippians 4:6-7 - - - God is on the job. Always. Good morning. #BeAnxiousForNothing
DAYS Will come when you don’t believe in yourself NIGHTS Where you lack confidence WEEKS When you’re tired of the regret of not chasing your dreams ...but FAITH In the unconditional love that God has for you FOREVER AND ALWAYS If you ALWAYS believe in God FOREVER and take his hand, you will ALWAYS have self-love and have the courage to pursue your dreams even when it may not seem like the right time💪🏼 • • Loving God and trusting Him means that you give God everything. Not just at your lowest points, but at your highest points too. To smile and look at nature, the birds flying, the seas rotating is to know Gods love and recognize his beauty such as nature, but also every beautiful person walking this planet🌎🌸💪🏼❤️ ~ ~ ~ ~ #positivemindset #positivevibes #motivation #believeinyourself #hillsandvalleys #trustgod #godsplan #talents #selflove #entrepreneur #artist #art #music #musician #God #ChronicallyBeautifulGT #Love
The one thing that encourages me in dark low moments is that each situation is temporary. I remind myself that there are plans to prosper me, not to harm me. Plans to give me hope and a future that is bright. #hillsandvalleys #brightfuture #jeremiah2911

After 2.5 miles hiking through the countryside in Jamaica, we finally made it to where my father grew up and where his parents (my grandparents) are buried. I managed to get the drone up despite not being able to lock onto a satellite or having a lot of clearance to take off and land but I was determined whether or not it was the last time I would see this drone. #garydeanclarke #drone #saintcatherineparish #saintandrewparish #jamaica #caribbean #island360 #home #jamaicalandwelove   #outofmanyonepeople #visitjamaica #sweetjamaica   #jaincredibles #jamaicatravelchannel #ig_jamaica #djimavicpro #proud876 #hillsandvalleys #glengoffe #cassavariver

There are many times I’ll ask Jesus, what’s something I need to work on, something I need to focus on,during my quiet time or something I need to share. The one word that stuck in my spirit was Grace. • A few days ago, one of my sweet friends, @deanna_brown_ posted a beautiful, encouraging post about the importance of gracing ourselves during pregnancy. When I read it, I immediately thought back, to when I was pregnant and how I definitely needed to hear those words but then the Holy Spirit reminded me that her words were applicable, to after pregnancy too, “the after baby body” when you’re close or almost at your goal but not there yet. Yeah I needed that one. • Earlier this week my husband was on his way home super late. He’s been working longer than usual and getting home later. After one of his super long days, he went to workout like he usually does but took a bazillion years doing it and getting home. ( I can be a little dramatic lol) I started complaining about it to Jesus and all I wanted to say to him, when he got home 😂 instantly I heard him speak to me in my spirit and say Brianna, give him grace. 😩 He’s been working a lot lately and has been so busy. He needed that time after work and didn’t need me nagging him when he got home! I wanted to be mean, so bad lol but I quickly got checked and knew he was right. Instead I listened to him and let him talk to me about everything when he got home. Probably saved us from having an unnecessary argument, that would have been my fault too 🤷🏾‍♀️ • A couple days this week I felt like I hadn’t been “that tip top Christian” is that even a thing? I didn’t feel like I was giving God my best. He quickly reminded me that 1. God doesn’t judge us based off performance, as Christians. Not a thing honey ✋🏾 He loves us unconditionally and we can’t “earn” his love and affection. It’s given freely and 2✌🏾, when we may not be at our best, we make mistakes, we falter. God expects it. We’re human. (Caption continued in comments)
