Habits Are Like Seeds

Habits are like seeds. If you don’t like the fruit you are seeing in your life, plant new seeds by changing your actions (i.e. starting implementing different habits) so that you get different outcomes. But don’t get frustrated when there isn’t a harvest overnight. The seed must sprout and the plant must grow strong before…

I Praise You!

In the arena of body image, we are often told to view ourselves with body positivity; as a wonderful work created by God. While this is certainly true, I think we need to shift the perspective off of us and onto Him when doing so. As women of faith, we are called to respect and…

2020 Vision

This was definitely funny, but the more I thought about it, the more I just couldn’t help but think about the truth of what God’s perspective on 2020 would be. While our view of this year might be negative at the present, I think that hindsight on 2020 will be 20/20, and we will be…

Five Tips ForNavigatingAnxiety {FTT}

In undergrad I battled anxiety to the point of insomnia and panic attacks. I’m not going to pretend to be an expert, but I can relate to how debilitating and isolating it can feel. Every so often, my anxious tendencies creep back in, but I have learned how to prevent and manage it in a…

First Book!! Coming Soon!

The Savior’s Heart: Lessons Of Truth From The Gospel Of Mark 📖 This book was not planned. I was actually in the middle of writing my 1st book (which I suppose will now actually be my 2nd!) when I felt the Lord prompting me to pause & write this book. I wasn’t sure I heard…

Happiness vs Joy

An email from She Works His Way and the quote on the second slide about millennials by Jordan Raynor resonated with me so much today. It’s not just millennials though; it’s just worse for them because of the number of choices they have. There have been studies showing that the more options we have, the…

Renewing The Mind

Lasting transformation takes time. It is not achieved via a quick fix approach or through a temporary diet and exercise program. To truly sustain a lifestyle that gets the results you want while also honoring God requires a renewal of the mind. A transformation on the inside is the only thing that will ultimately sustain…

Five Tips For Setting Goals & Choosing Habits That Honor God {FTT26}

I was recently asked about how to set goals and choose habits that honor the Lord, rather than cater to our personal or more worldly desires. Sometimes it can be difficult to know if we are truly following God’s heart or indulging the flesh and honoring self. We want to stick to healthy disciplines, but…

The Hope In Joseph’s Story

The Hope In Joseph’s Story: “Things may look bleak in human terms, but can end up being totally different when our God comes into the picture.” This time of year, we read a lot of devotions about Mary and the beautiful humility she exhibited in response to the Lord. I won’t deny that I still…

On Leaving Things Unfinished…

One of the best lessons my business coach Jill Coleman taught me was to look for opportunities to learn / share insights as you come across them in your day-to-day life. This is one such pearl of wisdom—pun intended. I found this barely begun-to-form pearl in my birthday dinner oyster. Tiny though it is, it’s…
