"A Gateway of Hope" | My Takeaway From Today's "She Read's Truth"

"A Gateway of Hope" | My Takeaway From Today's "She Read's Truth"

This year has not started off on the best foot for me. From day 1 (literally, not figuratively) I have experienced trial after trial. It seems as though everything I had carefully and perfectly and intentionally planned is one by one falling apart. This is the place in my life that I am known to run. My whole life, I have been a "runner" (now that on IS figurative! ha!). As soon as a trial faces my way, I fight until I am weak and then I run. 

I can't tell you how many people have said that to me. This has cost me many cherished relationships in the past...

Recently, someone reached out to me regarding my process of finding self-forgiveness during my time of becoming an unwed mother.... (read more)

Faith Without Works Is Dead

"14 What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, 16 and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit? 17 Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead."
-James 2:14-17

I have been thinking a lot lately about the trials that come with parenthood. Specifically, being a parent of a toddler. Even more specifically, the parent of a toddler who acts like she is a mix of a 16 year old and a Tasmanian Devil all together. It's a whirlwind for sure.

This was going to be a post about my new office. A post with pretty photos documenting this new fun area I get to have all to myself. This space I have dreamt of for seemingly a lifetime. 

Oh, don't worry- there will still be all the pretty photos of some of my new space. Duh. BUT- That is not shaping up to be the actual story within this post. 

Instead, I am going to highlight that little quote in my photo up there ^...

#AWPWORKSHOP | Realistic, APPLICABLE, Education. | My Backstory

Guys, it's here! I can't believe it! I am so excited to officially announce the inaugural #AWPWORKSHOP! 

There is this whole page on my website dedicated to explaining what the workshop is, who it is for, when and where it's happening... all that jazz. However, I wanted to share a little personal backstory on how I even got to this point in business because trust me, it's been a long time coming!...read more

Mom

Mom

It's Mothers Day and this year I wanted to do something a little out of the ordinary. I called my dad a few days ago and asked him to send me a few photos of my mom and our family over the years. Of course, I have plenty of other photos of her from my adult life, but it was important to me that I use the ones from growing up. The ones dad picked out. The ones that show how life was through someone else's eyes. Of course I threw some of their favorites of me in there too... *wink wink*. 

Raw Authenticity- The Comparison Trap

Raw Authenticity- The Comparison Trap

I am debating whether to post this or not. To be honest- I don't know where this post is headed or what all will be revealed. All I know is that I feel the need to write-so here I am...
