We’re all struggling

Hi, my name is Brently and I miss people😭⁣⁣I haven’t posted anything really in regards to COVID-19. Partially because it still doesn’t seem real. Partially because it’s affected me more than I care to admit. ⁣⁣The reality is, this hurts. I’m an extrovert, an enneagram 2, and I feel called to serve others. Dustin oftenContinue reading “We’re all struggling”

Still.

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.”

Certainty in the uncertainty

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 theContinue reading “Certainty in the uncertainty”

Stop instilling false fear

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”

Girl, stop “washing your face”

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 beContinue reading “Girl, stop “washing your face””

Have a team focus outside of sports

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 yourContinue reading “Have a team focus outside of sports”

Love yourself always

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”

Finding peace in the Father

Two years ago, I sat alone at home while Dustin was at work. I was supposed to be going over to our neighbor’s house to hang out and have a girls’ night, but before that, I had to do one thing. I had been sick for a week and I thought I’d figured out why.Continue reading “Finding peace in the Father”

2017…Our Year in Review

We walked in to my final OB-GYN appointment on Wednesday, January 11, 2017. I was miserable, passed due, and all around tired. The next day, we arrived at the hospital at 6 a.m. (who knew such a time existed?!) to begin the eviction process. And, at 5:35 p.m. on January 12, 2017, Warren Gabriel SneadContinue reading “2017…Our Year in Review”
