From Pain to Promise {Fierce Friday}

9
From Pain to Promise- God will never waste our pain!

Pain to Promise I remember the day that Jesus invaded my life so well. I came home from school instead of going to my Mom’s nail salon. She worked 14 hours a day in order to put food on the table for the four of us. She was on her 5th marriage to a man who was a mirror to her. She treated all the men before, the way he was treating her now; manipulative and…

How I Learned to Fiercely Trust During a Time of Doubt {Fierce Friday}

How I learned to fiercely trust God during a season of extreme doubt.

Thanksgiving of 2016 is one that I’ll remember for the rest of my life.  It’s the day that our “normal” was forever changed… Life Altered. I remember that as I sat next to my son in the dark, all I could hear was the bleep of the heart monitor.  The overwhelming concern I felt was sending chills down my spine.  My nineteen year old son Alex lay sleeping in the hospital bed with his body…

These four little words from my Dad were some of the most life-altering words for me several years ago. Shannon, you have to fight for your marriage. I knew he was right. I knew that I needed to fight…and I’m so glad I did!  Marriage can be one of the most beautiful relationships you’ll have, but it is one of the hardest to maintain. Because it isn’t easy. Marriage is hard. You will have trials, you’ll…

How to fight when words hurt | Fierce Friday- the battle you are fighting has already been won!

How to Fight when Words Hurt Once upon a time I dreamed of being a figure skater. I imagined gliding over the ice on perfectly white skates, twirling and jumping in perfection. During the winter months I was glued to the television, watching athletes masterfully dance across the ice. It looked so glamorous. And don’t even get me started on the outfits. Glitter? Yes, please. Sometimes dreams die. My figure skating dream died the day I…

How to Love them Deeply

12
How to love them deeply. Everyone carries with them a story of love, heartbreak and history. Everyone deserves our deep love, because love makes up for anything.

We were at the Denver airport catching a flight to Tulsa, Ok. I was with my oldest daughter and we had just sat down to eat a quick dinner before we boarded the plane. I looked over to my left and saw an Asian woman sitting by herself eating salad and working on her computer, which was a Mac by the way.  She looked to be around 60, wore glasses and her hair reminded me…

I’m so honored today to bring you my new friend Brittany! Oh you guys. Lean in. When I initially read her words I got chills. She’s got a word for you, I promise! a broken engagement I awoke to a splitting head ache and swollen eyes. I laid in my bed, vacant of any strength to do more than stare at the door. Pain flooded my heart as I remembered the occurrences of the previous…

To the girl who feels rejected and misunderstood- you still have purpose!

Girl- I feel ya…I really do. And I bet there’s not a girl out there who would say she’s never been rejected or misunderstood. It happens to all of us at one point or another. I got a call one morning that completely rocked my world. I was dripping wet from the shower I had just taken. The person on the other end and I talked for about 10 minutes…but I hardly heard anything she…

Things that Inspire

Our world could use a little inspiration, wouldn't you agree? This is just a light hearted article about things that inspire me. Enjoy!

Our world is so over-saturated with technology. We can get anything we want at the click of a button, can’t we? While that’s really cool and convenient, it can be a bit overwhelming. We have things coming at us from all sides, and I don’t know about you but..hello -brain- overload! It’s hard to be inspired when there’s just so much, ya know? Today’s post isn’t anything special, it’s very light-hearted as I just wanted…

Loving Yourself: A Revolution

14
What if loving yourself had nothing to do with you and everything to do with loving others? Start a revolution of loving yourself. When we love ourselves we can love others better!

My youngest daughter, Averee is an absolute joy. Anyone that knows her is completely shaking their heads in agreement right now. She’s always had this joy about her, and while that’s one of her greatest qualities, its not the greatest. She loves herself. And it’s as if she doesn’t even know any better. She loves herself in the most innocent way. It’s one of my most favorite things about her. In the bible Jesus says…

On sweets, valleys and mountains

Sweets. I really like chocolate chip cookies and cupcakes and wedding cake (but only with buttercream icing) and well…, just about anything sweet. My precious little Grandma passed away in September 2016 and she gave me something early on in my life that I don’t think I’ll ever forgive her for (sorry Grams)…a sweet tooth. She gave me a sweet tooth that’s caused me to gain, oh.. let’s see, about 10 lbs (or more) in the…
