S.O.A.P. Notes #9 {Deuteronomy 9:5-6} | “Perspective Shift”

Time for another SOAP Notes devotional! If you aren’t sure what I am referencing, see this post for a full explanation of this series! Today’s key scripture is Deuteronomy 9:5-6 S: You are going in to take their land, but not because you are good and live right. You are going in, and the Lord your God is…

A Few Of My Favorite Things #6 {Healthy Baking Kitchen Essentials}

  Sharing a few things that make healthy baking a little bit easier!   Parchment Paper Liners These are so much more convenient than making your own from parchment paper. Great for making muffins and mini meatloaves. I like these better than the silicone because I don’t have to wash them, but they usually do…

Transformation Is More Than Physical

I shared this #TransformationTuesday on my Instagram page this last week, but I know not everyone follows me there so I also wanted to share it here. There’s 14 years between these 2 photos. External proof that you should #LiftTheHeavyThings. However, the internal transformation, the mindset shift, and the personal growth that has occurred between…

Thoughts on Sharing Your Story

  I love this quote. Brené Brown is the master of all things #RadicalResponsibility. It did get me thinking though… (Are you surprised? 🤣) Owning our full experience and sharing our full story is not merely about our own healing, it is also about helping others walk through their own similar journeys. With the Lord’s help, we…

The Power of Tiny Habits

“If you plant the right seed in the right spot, it will grow without further coaxing. I believe this is the best metaphor for creating habits. The “right seed” is the tiny behavior that you choose.

Exciting News!!

I have mentioned before about how much I love my membership to the site Dashing Dish. I have been a member since May of 2013! Katie’s site was one that inspired me to start my blog, and I am so excited to share that I have been working with Katie and the team at Dashing…

Willpower

  Willpower gets praised far more than I think it should. Why? Because it requires us to work against ourselves. Living a healthy lifestyle does not require you to be miserable. It does, however, require you to do a bit of investigative work and to persist through some trial and error in order to find…

The Hard Work

    Everyone is looking for the shortcut to their goal. Nobody wants to hear that the only shortcut *is* to do the work. Period. // The irony is that our happiness is actually found within the pursuit of the goal, not at the attainment of it. The more psychology studies human happiness and behavior,…

The Benefits of Walking

Walking has so many benefits for those of every fitness level, but yet it is one of the most underrated forms of physical activity out there, IMO anyway. Most people do not recognize how much of an impact on their overall health it can have. Some people don’t think of walking when they think of…
