Somewhere along the way…many of us stop dreaming. We stop wanting more for our lives and we settle because “it is what it is.” We stop following our hearts or we don’t even start the calling that God has placed in our lives. We tell our inner child that is dying to fulfill their dreams … Continue reading When did we stop dreaming?
Thanks Mom & Dad.
I am realizing and experiencing so many feelings my parents must have felt as they raised me and my sister that makes my heart joyful and ache at the same time. One of my daily devotionals truly opened my eyes to something I had never realized...it started with a woman talking about her child wearing … Continue reading Thanks Mom & Dad.
I want to be different.
The Lord has changed my heart, and continues to change my heart daily and it has made all of the difference in my life, in my relationships and in my outlook on every situation I encounter.

Slow to Speak. Quick to Listen.
https://youtu.be/dGM9Obon2Fs This is a bit of a vulnerable video for me. It's not always easy to admit our faults and our shortcomings, but God is working on my heart daily, he is revealing the areas where I need to lean on him more and my own understanding less. Thank you for hearing my heart and … Continue reading Slow to Speak. Quick to Listen.
What is the Daniel Fast and Why am I doing it.
What? By definition, the Daniel Fast requires eliminating commonly enjoyed foods for 21 days as an act of worship and drawing yourself closer to God.

It is an opportunity to … Continue reading What is the Daniel Fast and Why am I doing it.
Mama To Mama.
This is is to my tired mamas, my mamas who have tried every food in the pantry today and your child has said no to every single one, for my mamas who don't think they can make it another night of no sleep, to the mamas who are desperate for that nap your little one … Continue reading Mama To Mama.
Gratitude is hard, but God makes it easy.
I think it is easy to get so wrapped up in life, its demands, our to-do lists, the routines we are just so “used to,” that we forget that each and every thing in our lives is an absolute blessing. I think if we truly stopped and realized that everything from the most mundane to … Continue reading Gratitude is hard, but God makes it easy.
He fills our empty spaces.
It's like any other Monday. Nap time approaches, I snuggle with my boy and I take him to his room to lay him softly in his crib so he can drift off to sleep. Except, like bedtime and nap time the day before...he is refusing to sleep. I don't know about other mamas but nap … Continue reading He fills our empty spaces.
The nap that (almost) broke me.
This nap was going to be different. I could feel it. White noise on, sleep sack on, paci in and about 4 more placed around the crib, and sweet, tired eyes in full effect. He went down quick, unlike the other two failed naps earlier that day. This was going to finally be it, the … Continue reading The nap that (almost) broke me.
I would be lying if I said there weren’t times this past week where I was feeling sorry for myself and questioning why certain things were happening, and especially all at once. But our God is so good y’all let me just tell you that 😭 I want to share something very personal with you … Continue reading Oceans.
