What I Learned From My Volleyball Coach

I'll never forget my first day of trying out for Volleyball in 2007. My coaches famous words that day really stuck with me:

"If you’re early, you’re on time. If you’re on time, you’re late. If you’re late, whelp, don't even bother coming."

I am not sure if this quote is something my coach read somewhere else, or if she made it up herself, but I think it's more than just those words she spoke that give me this sense of comfort. High School at times feels like a blur. I think in some ways a lot of people feel this way. Whether you were drowning in school work, partying too hard, being a star athlete, etc. We can all relate in the fact it was a struggle. When I think about that time in my life I don't often think about all the good memories I had. I forget about the joy I found in being a part of a team & having a mentor that valued me.

I am faulty in my way of thinking. I tend to allow the bad memories tell the story I replay when I am faced with the past. So…

Being a Christian Woman

Let me be honest, I feel like being a Christian Woman is super intimidating. I feel like I have to be someone who NEVER messes up, never curses, never lies, never disappoints, never fails, the perfect mom, the perfect wife, etc. Then, I also feel like it titles me with being a "weirdo" whos not fun to be around... I am just being honest here. It has felt like a real juggling act. I am new on this walk with Jesus. Out of curiosity, I decided to Google "what does a Christian Woman look like" and the results were overwhelming. So, I wanted to share simple but biblical ways I strive to be a better Christian Woman.



We Must LoveThis is something I truly believe. This requires incredible strength and faith. If you are wondering what that may look like take a look at the book of Esther. I pray that I can be as courageous and faithful as she was. I remind myself of God's love, and how great it is. I don't deserve it, and I mess up daily. But His love doesn't ch…

10 Strategies That Will Change Your Life

Do you ever feel like you're stuck in the same place? Days, months or maybe years have gone by and you don't see much progress in your life.  How many of these things are you doing? Pray OftenBefore her feet hit the floor in the morning she is asking God for guidance, and praying for a day surrounding God's love and patience. She will ask God for understanding when things are hard. She will thank him for all her many blessings. She will find so much comfort in him. Challenge YourselfShe steps outside of her comfort zone because she knows there is value in that. She realizes that the challenges she doesn't face will become her limits. And being limited is just not an option for her. Self ReflectionShe knows her worth. She is confident in the woman she is and she believes in her own cause. She doesn't value her worth based off of other's opinions. She is also honest about that and notices her faults without obsessing over them. She is balanced.

8 Ideas When You Need To Spend Time Alone & Recharge

Lets be honest, Sometimes doing things for ourselves just doesn't feel right. We all have a to-do lists that run miles long, children to attend to, and spouses that we need to make sure is getting the love and attention they deserve. 

I wanted to find biblical scripture to support that I need to take care of myself so I can be a Godly wife, mom, & friend. Here's what I found...

Genesis 2:2
"By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work"
This tells me the importance of Rest. While God created the world, he considered it all to be good. And although he did nothing but rest on the seventh Day, it was considered a good thing.

Exodus 20:10
"But the seventh day is a sabbath to the LORD your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your male or female servant, nor your animals, nor any foreigner residing in your towns."
