If only our marriages were as easy and mess-free as we portray them to be on the outside; to our friends, families, co-workers, and on social media. I know I for one am far from a perfect wife. And my actions prove that… When 5am rolled around this morning, I woke up feeling like I’d… Read More How Your Response Has the Power to Encourage or Destroy in Your Marriage

How I make Jesus A Part of My Everyday Life

I’m going to start by saying this… I am in no way living a perfect life that always honors God. I mess up and struggle daily. Which is why I need Jesus to be a part of my day, every single day.

Recently, my husband, Luke, and I received a letter in the mail from my brother, Marshall. He is currently living in Los Fresnos, Texas, training to be a missionary with To Every Tribe.

Upbeat Christian Music Workout Playlist

There is nothing like a good playlist to motivate you in your workout. However, I’ve listened to my fair share of music that has a great beat and pumps me up, but has less than uplifting lyrics. As much as I want to say the lyrics don’t effect me, they still get into my head… Read More Upbeat Christian Music Workout Playlist

The Thief Named Comparison

“I’ll never be as beautiful as she is.” “I wish my abs looked like that.” “Why can’t our apartment look like it came straight out of Pottery Barn like that couple’s does.” “My job is so hard, why can’t I work a job like that where I can travel, lay by the pool, and get… Read More The Thief Named Comparison

The Easter Story In Mary’s Eyes

Easter. The word brings a vivid picture to mind. I see Jesus, standing by a grave with the stone rolled away. He is bright, radiating a glorious light.

Count Your Blessings Part 2

This morning, I was able to reflect on the 100+ blessings I documented in my notebook throughout the week.

Why Your Status Doesn’t Need To Be “In a Relationship” To Feel Loved This Valentine’s Day

Love. What does that word truly mean anyway? Love might be the feeling you get when you come home after a long day at work, flop onto your bed, and your furry friend jumps up for a snuggle. Love could be how you feel towards that delicious box of Girl Scout cookies shoved in the… Read More Why Your Status Doesn’t Need To Be “In a Relationship” To Feel Loved This Valentine’s Day
