I stopped seeing the beauty

So if you know me, you know how obsessed I’ve been with my kids over the years. 〰️ You’ve seen the thousands of pictures I’ve posted of them 〰️ You’ve seen all the heart felt posts about them 〰️ Lately, there hasn’t been much of that. I stopped seeing the beautiful gifts that God has…

When will I stop needing help?

Why can’t I be the one helping someone else? I think to myself. Why are we always the ones being helped, or needing help? I think, with resentment toward all the blessings I’m being bombarded with. We’ve been married for almost 8 years, next month. 6 of them have been spent with my husband either at war,…

Don’t save me, just listen to me

If you’re anything like me, I tell people things. I used to pretend that I was always okay. So nobody would know what was actually happening in my marriage or my head. But then I started to be honest. My honesty was not a cry for help though I’m honest with people so I can…

Don’t be the expert

I think something has happened with the way people blog right now. We’ve taken a turn from blogging through our trials, and describing the NOW. Instead we are trying to overcome the middle and get to the end as quick as possible. So we can be the expert. So we can be who you go…

“Your Poor husband”

My oldest daughter has this thing she does when she’s uncomfortable but doesn’t want you to know. She slightly smiles and chuckles while scrunching her nose up as high as it could go but, its clear that the smile she has is forced. It’s how I can always tell when she’s lying to me about…

Lies + IG

Isn’t it funny that when we see these kinds of photos on social media that we assume happiness and perfectionism?   As if the soft faded lens and peaceful backdrop of the sunshine, the tall grass waving in the breeze, the crisp leaves on the trees, a random family standing in the middle of nowhere…

Seeking after the wrong things

When we moved out here a couple months ago, I was imagining that we would live this total IG life. I’d be a stay at home mom somehow, despite having plenty of bills to keep up with. And my husband would be a full-time student, maybe coaching CrossFit on the side if we found a…

We moved to Knoxville, TN

As an update, we didn’t sell our house. Instead, by the grace of God, we were able to rent our house out for the full price of our mortgage, actually a small amount more than our mortgage. Which is honestly, just a miracle and affirmation that the Lord wanted something more for us somewhere else.…

We have to sell our house

We have to sell our house. We actually just bought it a year ago. I am also a licensed Real Estate Agent. It was my dream to have our own house and a yard and a front porch, a garage, a driveway, a street my kids could play on with their friends…and we finally got…

It’s okay

It’s okay ✨ 1️⃣ Its okay to be proud of yourself and your body. It doesn’t make you conceited or arrogant for appreciating your body and investing love and time into it. You shouldn’t feel bad for making time for yourself to achieve goals or peace of mind, unless it is completely harming your family…
