I’ve held on to this for a week now... “The Lord will fight for you, and you must be quiet.” Existed 14:14 “Now, therefore, present yourselves and see this great thing that the Lord will do before your eyes.” 1 Samuel 12:16 “To seek to lead a quiet life, … Continue reading Still.
This time of year is hard for many of us. This will be the first year we go through the holidays without my Mawmaw and my heart has felt broken more than I care to admit. Just this morning, I woke up from a dream so real with her, and I felt the … Continue reading Certainty in the uncertainty
I was you. I laughed at the thought of using essential oils to support my health. I thought it was silly that someone could be so concerned about what they're putting on their skin. I thought it was unnecessary to worry about what you clean with since the goal was to get rid of germs. … Continue reading Stop instilling false fear
*I originally posted this on Facebook/Instagram but I thought maybe you needed to hear this, too! This is pretty much how we spent most of our weekend. Warren had a tummy bug Friday and spent yesterday recovering. This is also the one weekend Dustin was out of town. If I’m being honest, this weekend exhausted … Continue reading Make it to church
Obviously the blog hasn't seen a lot of action in 2019. I could probably get really creative and make a list of a million excuses as to why buuut let's just skip all that and put it all out there: this blog terrifies me.

This picture is blurry. This picture is old. This picture shows two little babies who … Continue reading Three years later…
This is going to be a very unpopular opinion, and I’m okay with that... I was there. I read the book and I bought into it. I fell prey into believing that I am in control and that what others think of me should never matter. I believed the lie that I should be … Continue reading Girl, stop “washing your face”

You may not be a football fan, and that’s okay. But I think we learn important lessons through sports. Today, my family and I sat and watched an emotional Saints game. I know there’s a lot of people who don’t understand that, but there is a lot of pride for the team who represents your … Continue reading Have a team focus outside of sports
I vividly remember when I was in the sixth grade and a girl who is a few years older hardcore laughed at me because of my eyes. I was standing there, waiting for my mom to come pick me up, and she looked at me, chuckled and said, “Your eyes are practically black.” … Continue reading Love yourself always
