The flower came from my garden. The earrings I made and the bracelet made by Valerie. Such a great combo!

F E A R L E S S —————————————-——————————— So I read a post yesterday that said when sin entered the world, it brought along the weight of shame, pain and fear. The brokenness in these areas are so prevalent today. We have fear that cripples, pain that feels defeating and shame that distorts our view of who we are in Christ ———————————————————————— As Believers, we are not called to a life of fear. We are called to leave our fear, shame and guilt at the cross and live a life made new ———————————————————————- last night at my small group we talked about living counter culturally. And lemme tell ya friends! Jesus was all about shaking up the worlds of those living under the bondage of the law. He spoke the truth boldly and lived out everything that seemed to go against the norm or status quo. He calls us to do the same ——————————————-—————————— Let me leave you with this paraphrase of Ephesians 2: we all have walked the path of a broken life; our flesh and spirit war against each other and we all deserve death. But the Father loved us so much and had mercy and compassion and grace on us despite our sin. He made us alive in Christ by grace through faith and calls us to be His handiwork ———————————————————————— If that isn’t something to celebrate I don’t know what is. So friends! Live fearless! Live counter cultural! Live intentionally! Let’s walk in the freedom of being Jesus to this world!!! . . . . . 📷: @thatriegirl (helping me snap this rad photo 🙌🏻) #thatauthenticfeeling #darlingdaily #boldbraveyou #liveintentionally #livecountercultural #livefearless #posthepeople #kinfolk #simplicity #livefolk #thehappynow #meetthemoment #postitfortheaesthetic #liveyourroots #liveauthentic #heartlikehis #simpleandstill #livemoments #aquietstyle #lookslikefilm #pursuepretty #igers #getaftergrateful #petitejoys #thankfulheart #blessedmidwest
If you’ve been following my stories, you know that this guy is in the middle of the dreaded four month sleep regression. Y’all, it has been tough, but I think we’re on the upside. I’m thinking of writing a post about how to survive sleep regressions with some tips and tricks we’ve learned over the years. Y’all want me to? . Also, without reading my latest story (#tiredmommoment 🤦🏼♀️)...my sweet husband came home for lunch early bringing me an iced almond milk latte. He’s a keeper. 🙌🏼 And how cute are they?!
This is my son, Ben. Never have I feared desperately for his safety. Never have I had to shelter him from violence, persecution, or police brutality. Never have I had to load up our life into a backpack to run into the unknown, hoping for a chance at anything better than pure hell. My reality is a simple one, one that does not allow me to pass judgment or shame onto parents who flee their homes seeking new life for their families. I cannot and will not speak for them, but do ask that today, regardless of your political opinion, that you spend a moment of silence or prayer for refugee families who are enduring terrifying circumstances. In the eloquent words of Warsan Shire, “no one leaves home unless home is the mouth of a shark”. Many, many families are running from sharks today. Let’s recognize the impossibly difficult decisions many mothers are having to make in our world, and seek to create a better future moving forward.

Reminiscing about that time @teghanmoon and I climbed a volcano in the middle of the night & witnessed the most beautiful sunrise I’ve ever seen. Definitely one of my most treasured memories. . . Travel is one of my main motivators to work hard. There’s nothing like arriving in a new place, trying local food, learning words in a different language, exploring a different country, experiencing a new culture, seeing/trying new things... it sets my soul on fire! . . . . #tandjdobali #wheretonext #wanderlust #exploretheworld #globetrotter #traveljunkie #letsgoplaces #seetheworld #explore #adventure #seasia #bali #bestietrip #workhardplayhard #reachyourpotential #groworgo #personalgrowth #personaldevelopment #reachforthestars #goals #womenofwfg #sedt #maxout #dreambig #dreamscometrue #getafterit #getaftergrateful #blessed #bloomingintothebestversionofme
Guys, what’s happening at the border is hitting me hard. I have more thoughts and feelings than I know what to do with. I keep seeing posts about calling our reps and telling them to support SB 3036. But I live in California and all my representatives are Democrats. They’re already on board with SB 3036. I felt like I didn’t have a part to play. But the thing is, Democracy requires personal action. We are as much a part of the system as our representatives are. - So if your reps are already voting to keep families together and you want to do something to help, consider donating to @raicestexas. They’re working to bail out parents so they can be reunited with their kids. Consider it even if you’ve already texted RESIST to 50409 to write or call your Republican reps. - Time feels like the only thing worth giving. I want to pack myself and my baby up, fly out to the border and give my time. Translate. Help. As much as I want to do that, I can’t. What I can do is use my dollars to vote between now and Election Day so that’s what I’m doing. I can’t give time, but I can give money. - I have so much more to say but I’ll end here. I’m a child of immigrants. My family — parents, uncles, aunts, cousins — left a war torn El Salvador not just seeking the American Dream but seeking safety. I can’t fathom what we’d be going through as a family if we or any of my cousins were separated from our parents. I can’t fathom the pain and heartache I’d feel if I left one horror only to meet another. We can’t just watch from the sidelines and wonder how it’ll get fixed. We have to help.
I have wept. I have mourned. I have grieved. I have been hurt. I have been brokenhearted. I am broken. And yet, I will laugh. I will dance. I will sing the praises of His holy name. Because joy always comes in the morning. Suffering is guaranteed. Jesus made it very clear from the very beginning that we would suffer for His name, and in the letters of Paul, he encourages us to do so joyfully. What a concept, right?! To suffer joyfully. And yet, through suffering, we get a glimpse of what Jesus endured on the cross—and let me remind you that it is merely a glimpse. No matter what we may go through, what tragedies we suffer, they are nothing in comparison to what Jesus experienced on the cross. . . But He cares. He cares so deeply about our sorrows and our tears and all the hardship that we face. Those moments that seem so unbearable and that we just can’t keep going and we feel like we are going to drown in our sorrows—He is crying with us. How could He not be? He is the One who had to carry it all. . . He is writing redemption into each and every one of our lives, whether we can see it in this moment or not. He is writing beauty into our brokenness. He is not far away in our pain—He is closer than we could ever possibly imagine. And this is His promise to us—that our stories will never end in tears. They won’t end in pain and brokenness. They can’t, because He has already stepped in and completely changed the story. No, they will end in laughter. In singing. In joy. And we'll look back and see how present He was all along. How He was writing redemption all along. And friends, we will rejoice.
Some of us have so many different things going on at one time. We have so much to be grateful for when it comes to our family, our jobs, and our interests. But it's easy to feel frustrated that there aren't enough hours in a day to keep up with everything we need to (or want to) do. - If you can relate, you should check out today's blog post! Today I'm featuring a guest post on how to get more done without any extra work. You can read it at the link in my bio! 💙 - What's your best time-management tip? 😊

>>> For the first time I felt brokenhearted during this season of waiting. But, I was reminded that my Lord is with me! • If you are in a season of waiting (health, infertility, marriage, finances, etc), remember: - God is your source of power, courage and wisdom! - He is by your side! - Keep praying!
There is five and a half days of school left before it’s time for summer break. Sunshine, camping, weddings, art and gymnastics camp, lake, beach, all the gelato evenings, cabin trip, so. much. fun. Cannot wait to soak it all in with my family and friends. ☀️ 🌸 ⛰ 🌊 🏖 ⛺️
We tucked the little men into bed last night after an evening of family time spent laughing and soaking up some extra sun rays. 🌙 Josh and I took a quick walk around our neighborhood and we caught up with each other’s days and then we did some dreaming. One of the main reasons we school at home is because we want to have a close family bond, we want to spend quality time together and travel. We now see that those plans are going to come true and we are just so grateful. We both want to soak up every minute we have we these little men because it seems to be flying by quicker than before. 💫😭✌🏻 What do you love most about schooling at home or what peeks your curiosity about it?
The good list: sandy babies, sink baths. Beach hair and the sound of the rocks when the ocean pulls back from the shore.
I keep a vintage, milk glass tea cup at my bedside with some of my favorite night time oils. Here’s what’s in it! 🌕 Cedarwood (Because its AHHMAZING and personally is my bestttttest buddy for sleep support. IM OUT LIKE A LIGHT) 🌖 Lavender (I pair this with Cedarwood to help my ever running brain to settle down for the night) 🌗 R.C. (Because allergies give me a supa stuffy nose and this supports my respiratory system) 🌘 White Angelica (It smells amazing and is soo relaxing) Do you have trouble falling asleep too?😭😅 • • • • #thatauthenticfeeling #lovelysquares #darlingdaily #postthepeople #pursuepretty #thehappynow #pursuewhatislovely #liveyourroots #postitfortheaesthetic #darlingmovement #thatsdarling #liveauthentic #simpleandstill #petitejoys #flashesofdelight #livefolk #getaftergrateful #littlejoys #seekthesimplicity #retro #playlist #christiancreative #imbringingsimpleback #simpleliving #vintage #aquietstyle
Doesn’t this tree look emotionally anguished? Like it has a story to tell? . Apparently I’m not the only one who thought these trees had character. It is said that “The name Joshua Tree was given by a group of Mormon settlers who crossed the Mojave Desert in the mid-19th century. The tree’s unique shape reminded them of a Biblical story in which Joshua reaches his hands up to the sky in prayer”-Wikipedia. . In that same vein, I am praying for relief and mercy for the great number of children who have been separated from their families on our countries border. The frightening and heartbreaking circumstances they face are the opposite of what our country claims we stand for in the famous anthem on our lady liberty: “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”. . We can and we must do better for the “tired, the poor, and the huddled masses.”
“The desire to get pregnant grew like ivy, slow at first and then with great vigor. It began to cover everything. It was all I could see and pray for. Each passing month we waited, began to hurt in places it hadn’t before. . I suppose I write this to free us a little. To say it’s okay to want something but not want it right yet. To feel fear when it shows up earlier than we thought. To feel anger & disappointment when it doesn’t. . And to be delighted, weepy, and overwhelmingly grateful when we begin to ache for the very thing we were really afraid of. . Our hearts are fickle, our feelings are fleeting. Let’s fill the empty space with grace not shame, as we uncover all we hope for but don’t understand quite yet. As we inch closer and closer to the woman we are becoming even if it catches us by surprise. . We might find desire was there all along, it just needed space to grow.” . Just a little snippet of an article I wrote recently. I hope it serves you friend. Link in profile for more.😘
BECAUSE I’M HIS | I have a fresh start. Every day. ➖ Maybe you woke up this morning feeling defeated, disappointed, or down and out. Maybe this week’s been hard — like really, really hard — and it’s taking all of you to get your feet out from under the sheets and onto the floor. Maybe you’re in the thick of a struggle, of grief, of letdown, of regret. ➖ If this is you — hear this: Today is a NEW day 🙌 ➖ It sounds so worldly, doesn’t it? Like a pleasantry we throw around just to make people feel better. But the truth is — this is Truth. Like real, Bible-backed truth. The author of Lamentations tells us that God’s mercies are new every morning. Every morning. ➖ He lays out His love for us — through mercy — every morning. We get a fresh dose each time we battle Snooze and open our eyes. ❗️The mercies never end. ❗️The fresh starts never run out. ➖ If you’re wrestling today — know you have a fresh start. ➖ ✨Despite yesterday’s failures, disappointments, pains, regrets or troubles — today is a new day. Walk bold in your fresh start, boo. ➖ The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. — Lamentations 3:22-23
When I met Simon, I was working out a self-inflicted penance for mistakes I’d made in my past, and he was the first person who ever asked me why. He was the one who introduced me to the radical idea that neither time nor distance make Grace stick. And I’ve been learning about Grace-lived-out from him every day since then, for going-on 15 years. Simon Dwight, loving you heals me.

Feeling like I could escape to a mountain top with only a hammock and a beer and be completely and overwhelmingly content 🌞
This kid, guys. I just can’t with that little smile. Love him TO DEATH. Also..It’s already been a whirlwind of a summer. I Just want it to slow down!! Anyone with me?!✋🏼
Harper "hid" from me in the bushes during our session. It was adorable, but what I liked most about it is how she told the story over and over again in true toddler fashion. It went something like this: "I ran away and hide from Chelsea in the plants." She was so proud- actually, I saw her a week later and she was still pretty proud.

What a difference one year can make! The left was me in July last year and the right is me this minute. I remember being so fearful that I'd never get my body back after my babies. Now here I stand after having 2 kids and feel healthier than ever! . The physical transformation is just what you can see in these photos. What I can see is the girl on the left being tired, unmotivated and overwhelmed by everything going on in life. I was happy, but I wasn't having fun. I was doing things, but I was full of limiting beliefs and old stories I would repeat to myself to keep myself safe. . The girl on the right is happy, healthy, motivated and simply will not settle for anything less than amazing. I'm part of the 5am club to get my workouts in, putting amazing nutrition into my body, and designing the life of my dreams. I'm so grateful for the ability to grow and reinvent myself and the space I've cleared to make room for my personal growth. I can't wait to see where I'll be a year from now and all the lives I'll be able to change between now and then! . . . . #transformationtuesday #postbabybody #strengthinmotherhood #sharetheselflove #startyourlife #teamvoyage #mydailyhealth #shakeitup #honestmotherhood #wellnesscoach #ohheymama #modernmom #growthmindset #seeksimplicity #messy_motherhood #strongwomenraisestrongwomen #buildyourdreamlife #getaftergrateful #liveauthentic #liveintentionally #callinyourtribe #constantdevelopment

Family walks have ALWAYS been a big thing to my family. For as long as I can remember, after dinner my parents would round us up and get us outside to stroll around the neighborhood. I remember having some of the best & open chats with my parents on those walks. Now I love doing that with our little family too. We walk around the lake we live next to, and explore, chat, at enjoy each other's company. I hope he will still agree to these walks when he's 13😂🙈 What's one of your family's favorite activities?

Writing down and remembering those summer memories and tonight we picked our first vegetable and clipped our first herbs from our garden. 👒🥒 I am in love with every bit of homesteading and this is only the beginning! ☀️
Never let go of the wonder.⠀ Just a cheesy quote? Or a life motto that I seriously believe in?⠀ I believe part of our purpose here on earth is to just SOAK in all the beauty that surrounds us.⠀ To never lose the enthusiasm and excitement of childhood.⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Everyday it’s hard, because we always find something to complain about (at least I do! I’ve been majorly working on myself in this department!!), but I always strive to shift my mind-set towards one of wonderment.⠀ Today, I am in wonder at the feeling of sleeping after a long 13 hour night shift. 💛💤⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What are you finding wonder in today, pal?⠀

Storms rolled through today, and it finally feels like a midwest summer. A muggy, mosquito infested, oh-so-green summer. 🌿
‘Peace and anxiety can not coexist.’ . . . I heard this from someone this past weekend and it really resonated with me. You truly feel one or the other. . . . The more peace you develop in your mind, body and soul the less space there is for anxiety to occupy. . . . I’ve been mindful to practice what brings me peace to fill up my spaces because I’ve also heard nothing can bring you peace except yourself ✌🏼 —> —> —> #honestmotherhood #authenticlife #fitmomoftwo #babiesdontkeep #motherhoodrising #simplemoments #homeworkout #yycmom #pursuepretty #thehappynow #getaftergrateful #themindfulapproach #liveauthentic #communityovercompetition #peace #anxiety
Exactly a year ago today, we jumped for joy to find out this little guy existed in my tummy. I was 6 weeks along and it was the best news to come our way before Clifton took off for a 3 month Asia tour. And now here he is- 4 months old and still making us feel so very much in love. If not more so! We adore the laughs, smiles, farts, screams (happy), and occasionally the cries too. I cannot wait to see who Bo becomes in this life. Clifton and I really have it all with this little guy 🌻
today☀️ . I’m learning to set other things aside and sit during nap/rest time in our home, even if it’s for a short time. it’s so good for my heart.💛 . i love my kids morning faces. they are the sweetest, most puffy-eyed, smoochiest faces I’ve ever seen.😘 . it’s too hot and I’m ready for fall.🍁 . my husband scared the living daylights out of me earlier. yes, on purpose. yes, he was retaliating. yes, i shall be responding in like manner. it’s one of those ongoing lovey things in our marriage.😱😉 . we are having @halfbakedharvest croque madame breakfast pizza for dinner tonight and I’m quite excited.🍳🧀🥓 . I opened the solid joys app this morning and was amazed because the title of today’s post was the EXACT thing I’ve been especially struggling with the past couple of weeks. the Lord sees and knows and works so intimately and it is such grace to receive that.🌿 . I like Tuesdays in our home.🏡 . how are your Tuesdays, lovely ones?
Happy 4 Months, Malachi! This month you learned to roll over both ways in bed but are pretty unmotivated to do it during the day. You sleep unswaddled and eat great after your second tongue tie revision. You have grown a whole lot and love to kick and stretch your legs. You giggle and smile at your mama like no one else and love to talk to your dad. You’ve made your first road trips to Florida and Nebraska and are a travel champion. Mom also discovered her favorite item of baby clothes are rompers. We love you so much buddy and can’t believe you are ours 🌈 👶🏻
New blog post! I’d say it’s a travel guide to Japan, but it’s really a guide on how to see Japan with a toddler in tow. Less shrines and temples, more parks and train museums. Travel with a little one is still amazing, just different. And I believe these experiences will shape the person Theo grows into, hopefully someone who sees different as good.
So incredibly impressed by these beauties! This photos doesn’t even do them justice! My hubby got them from a wild flower florist in Ballyclare @wildaboutflowersni . You’d never find such quality in supermarkets! Go support local folks, they put heart and soul in! #supportsmallbusiness #shoplocal

Iced coffee - another delight that tastes like summer! Today it was my comforting and yet very refreshing company during my quiet time. Coffee and Jesus is always a good combination (even though you certainly do not need the latter to be with the former). Today I watched a sermon and read Matthew 26:34-40 and one verse, that I, and probably many of you, have heard and read so many times before stood out to me and had a profound impact on me: “And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you did it to me.’” | Matthew 25:40 The way we treat and serve others does not only reflect our love for Jesus but also our priorities in life. On too many days I fall short and set my priorities wrong: I waste time, energy and resources on things that don’t matter in the long run. And then on days like today, the Holy Spirit reminds me of what matters most and puts me on the right path again. Therefore, I am beyond grateful for God’s grace in my life and the ability to learn from past shortcomings and make better choices tomorrow. #afternoonthoughts #transformingfaith #shereadstruth #blessedisshe

Think about what you want out of life, and why. Think about how you can get there; what action to take. Then believe you deserve it & believe in yourself! If you can see it, you can achieve it. Dream big. Dream often. Dream about how it would feel, what you could do, where you could go, what you could experience... And then dare to be different. Dare to chase your dreams. Dare to change your stars. Be bold & live your life on purpose! . . . .

Peek a boo! Some things to carry with you today: • You are breathing + able to read this aaand hold your device (what a blessing!) • Your Heavenly Father knows whats best for you • It’s totally okay to eat another cookie, the house not to be perfectly in order, or say “no” to something/someone. Loosen up and simply enjoy living sometimes. • This is your go ahead to buy that coffee or donut or pizza. (ima bad influence) • Compliment someone today and watch their face radiate with the receiving of kindness. • You are more than what you perceive yourself to be. • Smile often today (you have a lovely one) Happy tuesday, dear hearts👒 • • • • #thatauthenticfeeling #lovelysquares #darlingdaily #postthepeople #pursuepretty #thehappynow #pursuewhatislovely #liveyourroots #postitfortheaesthetic #darlingmovement #thatsdarling #liveauthentic #simpleandstill #petitejoys #flashesofdelight #livefolk #getaftergrateful #littlejoys #seekthesimplicity #retro #playlist #christiancreative #imbringingsimpleback #simpleliving #vintage #aquietstyle
Not gonna lie - this moment gave me life and I may have cheered out loud. • Serious props to my sweet @loscameron for letting me sleep almost the entire car ride home. 😍😘 #getaftergrateful #1000gifts • • • #hope2018 #ylconvention #community #introvert #mustardseedfaith #oilyfamily #servantleadership #diaryofayouthpastorswife
The good list: that morning light, a clean house, to-do lists getting smaller rather than growing, & a day off to enjoy time with the hubby before baby girl's arrival ❤
