“Then I heard the voice of the Lord, saying ‘Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?’ Then I said, ‘Here am I. Send me.” Isaiah 6:8 Soon after I graduated college and got married, I faced a bit of a “spiritual crisis”. Jeff and I both grew up in the church. Y’all, we were there every single time the doors were open. We were involved in all the things, served on all the mission trips and freedoms and youth camps. And, like so many people, when we went to college (together)
Hi friends!! We are starting a new series here on the blog called TOP FIVE TUESDAY. I know, nothing terribly original, but it's a fun way to round up the lists I love to make and display them for your enjoyment and personal enrichment! (I am nothing if I am not dramatic, y'all!) So today - to start it off - I am sharing the five things I am currently OBSESSED with (and you should be too!) And in order to GET you excited about these fun things, we are going to do a GIVEAWAY!!!

This space saw me through a season of wilderness, provided comfort to my late night painting sessions during the lonely periods of session and gave my children a space to create wi
I told one of my girlfriends when session started this year that it was going to be my goal to do one “fun mom” thing a week. One. I know that sounds totally, but any mom understands that your energy is easily drained almost all of the time. There are just simply some days where even when you have the groceries and the supplies and the actual time, getting dinner on the table feels absolutely daunting. That is fact, y'all. But what if I tried to thrive not just survive? What
To say that I am in give-up-mode this time of year would quite literally be the overstatement of the year, y'all. As the number of our goodbyes with Jeff grow fewer, we can feel summertime at our fingertips! Last week was the most unproductive week, leaving me feeling completely bummed out but also overwhelmed for this week. I showed up to my nephew’s two year old birthday party without a gift - and not only did I not bring one, but it didn’t even cross my mind to bring one u
