    Finding Balance In Your Life

    If your anything like most people you may be feeling like your living in chaos due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. We are all told to stay home, & stay safe. But we’re not told how to work 40 hours at home, while also trying to home school our kids. We haven’t been told how to get the gratification of a hug without being able to touch other humans. We don’t know the excitement that comes along gathering with friends and family until its no longer an option. We are left feeling stressed out and completely burned out with no outlet.    Finding balance looks different for everyone, especially in times like…

    8 Affirmations for Moms

    Motherhood gives us wisdom. In order to have wisdom, you have to go through the process and learn. We often forget this as moms. We lay out or plan and schedule so that we’re set up for success. I’ve learned as a mom, that you can never truly plan on what’s coming. We can do some things like work to financial freedom, have a beautiful nursery, and figure out your new work schedule. But you cannot prepare yourself to care for a baby you didn’t know would be colic and cries 90% of the time. You cannot prepare for the unknown. Your body naturally works, & you realized I am a mom, I sleep…

    Want To Strengthen Your Relationships? Here’s How!

    We all can admit that relationships are challenging. Not just with our spouse, but with our friends, family, co-workers, & kids. Here are a few simple reminders I use when I am reflecting on my actions.  #1 Trust Without Trembling 1 Corinthians 13:7 “It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.” I think trust is key when it comes to relationships. It’s hard to be open and vulnerable with someone you can’t trust. Trust is knowing without a doubt that the person is for you, not against you. Someone who will be honest enough to hurt your feelings because they know your potential-but, you know without a doubt…

    A Letter to my Sixteen Year Old Self

    I know, at 16 you feel like you know what’s best for you. But, let me tell you that the people who love you, are the ones fighting to keep you safe. They are the ones who you probably think are being unfair and over protective. They are trying to protect you from all the hurt and chaos you will create on your own. Trust them, talk to them, and tell them you love them. Popularity isn’t everything. I know you want to be liked, but do not change who you are. Do not lower your standards to meet someone else expectations of you. You are beautiful, loving, and smart.…

    Can you Love someone whom your fighting with?

    My Husband and I got into a terrible fight last week. The kind of fight you leave from feeling not only worse about your relationship, but also about yourself. The kind of fight you’ll continuously replay in your head trying to figure out what could have gone differently. This got me thinking, is it possible to argue with someone while still coming from a loving place? I cannot be alone in this struggle. If I am being honest, I left our argument feeling like my husband and I would just have to live as roommates, that is just going to have to be enough. And seriously, God bless my husband, because…
