Change is the only constant! - I read that over & over during my personal development this morning and it was exactly what I needed to hear! - I woke up not in the mood or motivated to do anything productive today 😆 But I have committed to myself that I want positive change: mentally, physically, spiritually, emotionally—they all go hand in hand! - I drank a little bit of my go-go juice to give me enough oomph to get moving. I did my regular morning routine, not because I wanted to but because I know it’s good for me. I didn’t go hard in my workout today (I did yoga) but my mind is in a better place. - When I take care of myself first, I’m a better mom & wife (& member of society, especially on the road😬) - So no matter what we do, we are constantly changing. We are in control whether that change is positive or negative, and if we are heading towards our goals! Ask yourself if the little things you’re doing today are getting you closer to where you want to be! It’s totally up to you, and I’m here to help 😘
I used to love waking up and having that perfect quiet time. A cup of coffee in my favorite mug. Hours spent digging into the Word and going through the latest Lifeway Bible study. Time spent journaling out my thoughts and prayers. . Now when I wake up I have a baby to nurse and a toddler calling for me from her crib and hardly a moment to myself. I’d be lying if I said that my first impulse is to pray or spend time with God these days. Because when I look at my circumstances and think about the day ahead of me, all I see is how HARD it is to meet with him. . But here’s the thing I’ve been learning through this crazy season of motherhood: I never needed those perfect quiet times to connect to the Lord. He is nearer than I think, more accessible than I believe. It’s MY expectations that hold me back, NOT my circumstances. . Every morning as I nurse my little one, I have the opportunity to use apps and resources on my phone to dive into the Word. As I’m having breakfast with my toddler and cleaning oatmeal out of her hair, I can talk to God about my worries for the day. As I drive to the park or a play date, I can lift my voice in worship (and hopefully drown out the noise of an unhappy baby). Opportunities are EVERYWHERE, and I can CHOOSE to put my old perfectionist ways aside and use them. . Do I miss the way things used to be? Of course! But how backwards would it be for me to let this gift of motherhood God has blessed me with hold me back from him? . Mama, I know the days are long and it can feel like you’re a million miles away from the Lord. And yet he is SO good in being ever-present in our lives, always wanting to show us new things and whisper words of love and truth in our hearts. . Don’t forget the opportunities you’ve been given. Think creatively. Pursue wholeheartedly. Work WITH your limitations. And you WILL see fruit. ❤️
We hear ya, mama (and maybe the neighbors do too 🤷🏻♀️) If you’re having one of those mornings, take a pause and get some deep breaths in. (Seriously, it helps!) And don’t forget that you’re doing an amazing job. ❤️ Now excuse me while I go and take my own advice 🙌🏻 #breatheinbreatheout // 📸: @_sarapward_
The birthday shenanigans have officially closed until November!! (when we celebrate our baby boy's 1st birthday!😭) Hubby and I took Abigail to see Hotel Transylvania 3 on Monday night and she LOVED it! Plus a fun date night for just her (which she doesnt get a lot of these days) was perfect! We had her "moana" birthday party last night and she had a blast! Thanks to all that came out! We unfortunately finished the night with a touch too much sun, but she is feeling much better today! #5yearold#halfadecade#shesabiggirlnow#partyoffive#happyfamily#moanabirthday#daughterdate#momofthreekids#momlife#mommyhood

I used to think that being loud meant I was strong. Quite the contrary. I was so freaking terrified. It was my front. My suit of armor. My “badass bitch” was my weapon. Through my journey of learning and unlearning, I see things differently. I know I don’t always have to be talking. Yes, me the talkative person. I have learned that I don’t need to always talk and “speak my mind”. Yes, I am all about speaking my truth! I also know part of my truth is knowing I don’t have to participate. The quietness is beautiful✨🙏🏻✨. - 📸 @tinybuddhaofficial
