While I was searching for something on my phone this morning, I stumbled on this photo. It’s a photo I took right after I planted my garden in the early days of spring. When I saw it, I thought “look at how little our plants were!” But what stood out the most was when this photo was taken. It was a day when I finally faced the fact that I had to move forward. I remember it vividly. It was a time where I didn’t know what direction to go in, but I had to take a step — and the fork in the road gave me two options that came with a deep amount of risk. But... I chose. I chose to heal. I chose to lean in to the uncomfortable, unpredictable, and uncertain. Truthfully, a life of the alternative (living in anger, regret + pain) wasn’t really an option for me. But it felt easier than healing! Even though I knew I didn’t want that, it was tempting most days. I can remember placing these last few plants into the soil, stepping back to look at all the work I had done + realizing it was time — I couldn’t distract myself any longer, it was time for me to face a lot of the things I really didn’t want to face. The fear of making “the wrong decision” was paralyzing. I was in this position because of my decisions, how could I trust myself to make the right one this time? But even though my outside circumstances felt like a tornado, there was an inner peace that knew whatever I chose.... God would honor it + turn it into something beautiful. And He did. Now, this little garden has twisted, turned + grown into a wall of green, producing the most vibrant fruit. I guess one simple seed of faith is all it takes sometimes. And when we plant it, it doesn’t mean everything just falls into place + our work is done. Most of the time, it means the work has just begun. The weeding + nurturing must still happen in order for growth to take place. And goodness, the process can be painful. Healing isn’t always pretty, but the outcome is beautiful. Even if it looks nothing like we had envisioned, hoped or planned. I’m stepping into a new space this week. Something that is equal parts terrifying + liberating... (continued in the comments below)

because when you stop and look around, life is pretty amazing.
Sunday brunch with this babe. She’s been extra wild lately so I thought I’d attempt to corral her at brunch by letting her hang in the restaurants cute teepee. #didntwork • • • • • #momlife #sdfoodie #discoversd #campfirecarlsbad #themommydiary #sharetheeverymom #sundaybrunch #localsguide #exploresd #brunching #ig_motherhood #ryleeandcru #holdthemoments #trendy_tots #ministylekids #ohheymama #childofig #joyfulmamas #kidsforreal #simplymamahood #prettylittleiiinspo
The proud new recipient of three @sesamestreet bandaids! . She did so well with her 12 month shots and she’s still a wee peanut at 17.5 pounds. Question for parents - when did you stop counting months and start saying years? I heard a someone say that their child was 30 months the other day...that baby is 2.5 years old. Thoughts? . . . . .

Mav still sleeps in bed with us and will not go back in his own bed. How are we going to have the 4 of us in our queen bed!? The logistics of it all are just not working out in my head. But I’m hoping that our approach that we used with Mav (to just completely wing it!) will work with 2 babies😂 who knows🤷🏻‍♀️ all I know for sure is that I love this little nugget and cannot wait to meet his little brother. #heregoesnothing #cosleeping
It’s a boy!!! Once the pitocin kicked in my body took over and we were able to turn it off. 1 hour and 19 minutes later at 2:19 pm my biggest baby was born without pain management weighing 8 lbs 1 oz. It was the hardest thing I have ever done!!! But we are so happy and look forward to introducing him to his sister and brother at home tomorrow. There was a concern going in that he would have Down syndrome like his sister but he appears to be typical with no other health concerns. I am so in love! P.S. baby is loving the swaddle I naturally dyed with indigo earlier this summer. 💙 . . . #babyboy #brandnew #holdthemoments #thehappynow #thecraftersbox #indigoshibori #psimadethis

We are so lucky to live in such a beautiful place! Beckett and I have been exploring or city a lot lately. This may be a new favorite spot. Because you know, we love blush everything. - Terri
Just a couple of fluffy bunnies making even the most basic mum jobs a bit more fun, because let’s be honest doing laundry is usually not my idea of fun! Speaking of laundry we've partnered with Cold Power to trial their new Cold Power Sensitive Pure Clean laundry liquid and so far so good. Having children with sensitive skin and having sensitive skin myself, what I love most about this product is that it is recommended by dermatologists and is recommended specifically for people with sensitive skin. What the kids love most about it is that it makes their clothes super soft and cuddly just like a fluffy bunny apparently! #coldpowersensitive #workingwithcoldpower • • • • • #motherhoodlens #parentingtips #happylittlesquares #happyselves #happyfamilies #familymoments #familiesofinstagram #littlefamiliesofig #habitandhome #eternalmotherhood #realmotherhood #raisingmytribe #teammotherly #thesnapsociety #takeheartmydear #thesearethedays #ig_motherhood #oureverydaymoments #pocket_sweetness #parenthoodmoments #simplelifehappylife #daily_captures #documentinglife #documentingmotherhood #holdthemoments #visualcrush #visualcreators #myeverydaymagic

One of the questions that I get asked A LOT is “How do you keep your faith so strong?” People often tell me that that they’re on a “spiritual low” and that God feels far away. But here’s something interesting. When I’ve asked each of them “When was the last time you read your Bible?” They almost always haven’t touched their Bible in ages! My sister said once “We talk to God through prayer. He talks to us through the Bible.” We can’t maintain a strong relationship, if the relationship is one sided! We have to continue to read God’s Word and listen to what He says! Reading the Bible GROWS your faith. I really really encourage you to pick up your Bible today and listen to what God has to tell you!🧡
These girls of mine are different in their own ways but so very similar. With their wildly fierce personalities, I pray that they defeat life’s challenges effortlessly and with grace. That when the world persuades them of all the things the cannot be, their response is “watch me”. I pray that when my help is less needed and the disagreements become harder that they love me no less. That when they become wise women, they understand why mama did what she did for a reason, and that reason was them. 🎀: @stellabellabows
For the second time in my life I'll be out numbered by boys! We are so excited to add another little guy to our family and Adoni is elated! He'd been campaigning for a little brother, like I had a choice... 😂 Cannot wait to meet our newest addition. #itsaboy 💙 • • • #genderreveal #cantwaittomeetyou #inspirepregnancy #bumpie #pregnancyisbeautiful #joyfulmamas #uniteinmotherhood #boymom #momofboys #20weeks #momlife #holdthemoments #documentlife #thebump #makemoments #mytinymoments #pursuepretty

Any one else’s toddler eat their food with their sisters onesie around their head and also ask for— “glasses,” “toy,” “car,” “thing” while they eat?! . Maybe my kid is the only weird one! Lol . Second photo: when a moment is happening & you think it would be a cute photo but then everyone does something different and it just turns out as a photo that makes you laugh & remember a sweet time! . . . . #sundaydays #sundayvibe #toddlerlife #lifewithlittles #motheringthroughinstagram #motherhoodunplugged #momsofig #inthelifeofatoddler #dinnertime #joyfulmamas #legitmomstyle #motherhoodinspired #motherhoodco #motherhoodinstyle #momtographer #momliferocks #inspirationintheeveryday #dailymotherhood #rawmotherhood #candidmotherhood #thisismotherhood #modernmom #holdthemoments #ohheymama #worldoflittles #honestmommin
This beauty is sandwiched between two brothers, and God totally knew what he was doing because we’re going to need those boys looking after her when they’re older 😂💪🏻 I’m totally jealous of her big blues and amazing lashes 😍 in awe that she is mine! Also, that tiny top knot 😍
Back to school after a long three weeks holidays, back to wearing a uniform and no more arguments with Audrey over her sometimes questionable fashion choices 🙌🏻 Although, I am kind of digging this Blair Waldorf look she put together last Friday. Those poses on the other hand.. 🙈🙊 . . #ootd #fashionvictim #blooms #floral #flowerwall #winter #gossipgirl #mbjarmy #mbjtroops
Life is sweet!❤
We followed my husband white shirt into Church today! It’s was glowing 🙌🏻🙌🏾 I hope everyone had an amazing Sunday.
I received this little ladies school readiness assessment this morning! I can’t even believe that my little Elvie is off to school next year! I really do love her more every day and when I think about her going to school I feel like I start to miss her. — — P.s I also love this style of dress on her!

•Get you a group of kids that are beautiful in so many ways• We just got back from our week at camp and we have so many memories and moments that proves that God is good and his love reigns. Especially through your friends.
Just a few of some of the incredible people from @21projectofficial that I feel like I’ve already known for a lifetime. To try to sum up into an Instagram caption what these past 3 weeks were like would be impossible. I believe this was only a small glimpse of the revival that God is stirring up across the world. I’m so thankful I got to experience what @carrythelove & @crmovement are doing to bring the gospel to the nations. I am filled with so much hope for the days we are living in. What a gift to be a part of this generation that is experiencing an outpouring of God’s spirit and radical Christianity unlike ever before. This month was a dream. ✌🏼
Morning vibes☀️🌿 I don't understand the whole situation now, but i also can say that this summer is the last, when i feel and do some things.

bedtime story time is so the coziest. I love this little child of mine. #mrparkerbryant . #cozyfitfam
I think Grampa is wondering what he had gotten himself into.
M o n d a y m o r n i n g • daddy let me sleep in 😍 so I can’t complain that they were watching simpsons and eating cake for brekkie 😂🙄we have a house inspection tomorrow and I went on clean up strike a week ago so as you can imagine, we have some work to do 😏 hopefully the clean lasts until tomorrow 🤔

Take me home for Sunday dinner🍴#lunenburg
Two years ago today was the first time I ever did tiny little piggies in Ella’s hair ((SWIPE)). It’s crazy to see how much it’s grown!
[D O • I T • S C A R E D] Everything you’ve ever wanted or have been called to — is most always on the other side of fear. 🗝 . . Can I share some truth? Its not even about you. Nope. Not one bit. Its about the story God is writing, and most importantly, about the people who need to hear it. 💬 . . Whose life is going to be changed because of your story...God’s story? Be obedient to brave — and fall in love with serving those people who might need to witness your bravery in order to find their own. 👊🏻 . . Do it scared, sister. Love >>> Fear.
Hanging out with my hairdresser today. Love the farmhouse decor in this salon. Besides my hairdresser being pretty great, I come here because it's so pretty.

May your Monday be full of laughter, opportunity and coffee 🙊 I never understood why everyone dreads Monday’s 🤷‍♀️ Start of a new week, think of all the things you’ll be able to get done this week, rather than all the things you didn’t do last week #glasshalffull Try to think through the eyes of a child sometimes, so innocent, full of life and find the joy in most things (don’t throw a floor tanty because the crust is on your sandwich kinda temper) but you get the drift. Who’s pumped for Monday ? 💃🏼 Jumper and Pants @beau_hudson
Sunday Funday!! 🖤 📷 by Mason Dax 😆
My family takes a natural approach to all things health. No not perfectly + yes my kids eat sugar sometimes, but we truly believe health care is “ sick care “ . Call us old school, but food should be our number one medicine. We don’t go to the doctors, we take supplements instead of antibiotics, + oils, LOTS + LOTS of oils. @doterra Terrashield is a family favorite for playing outside + avoiding all the bugs . No harmful chemicals required! Are you interested in finding out more about my family’s health journey? Comment below 🌿#raisingcubs #holistic #naturalmedicine #oils #essentialoils
