Love these sweet photos from a special day...the day my sweet boy stood up in front of our church family to tell them he believed in Jesus and wanted to live a life following Him❤️. I’ll never forget the tears in his young eyes when he asked Jesus in his heart...I worried he was so young but The Spirit had moved and he was ready to receive.
So thankful for my Father’s love and grace today...for the gift of my son and his salvation...for the gift of my own salvation❤️ This song has been on my heart all morning. Check it out 👇🏼 “Out of Hiding”
I’m only 3 days into my new program and
I. Feel. So. Strong! 💪🏼 The 60 minute workouts I was nervous about?
New moves to strengthen my core and booty?
All the food I need to eat to fuel my body?
Scarfing it ALL down😂
Eating every 2-3 hours?
Give me all the food😋
All the water?
Getting myself in bed by 10?
Rested😴😴 It all sounds so simple and truly it is...so simple, it just might work!! And it is.
I’ve always known the simple steps I needed to take to care for this body I’ve been given...I just chose not to.
It’s easier to stay the same than make a change.🤷🏻♀️ But small simple steps. That’s all it takes.
I’d love to take these steps with you!! 😊❤️💪🏼🔥🙌🏼
This model prayer that Jesus gave us is awesome and so helpful to get us started in talking to him. God loves you and He just wants to hear from you. He doesn’t care if you use fancy words or follow an exact model. All that matters is that you’re taking time each day to talk to God, and that takes practice. That’s what I want you to remember today. #livingonaprayer 🙏🏼 #practiceprayingtogod
I am totally swooning over this new @doterra blend. To be honest, it's been in my stash for a couple of months now but I do this hoardy thing where I don't like to open things until I absolutely need them. Trust me, this one is worth opening! Has anyone else tried the beautiful blend? You've gotta try it for the uplifting confidence. 🌞☀️🌞☀️🌞☀️🌞☀️🌞☀️🌞☀️🌞☀️🌞☀️
Something as simple as a cup of tea has me reminiscing ... it reminds me of late night talks several years back with a dear sister in Christ, praying and encouraging one another as we were both experiencing the sometimes painful side of being in the ministry. I was always so amazed by her faith, her steadfastness, her trust...because I could barely stand under it all. I struggled with trust, I struggled with loving the church, I struggled...I wanted out. Looking back, I can see how God has used those painful times to mold me, grow my faith and trust, to teach me that He is GOOD despite my circumstances...to love HIM above all else. The girl I was in the past was far more concerned with pleasing people...today, while it’s a battle I daily fight...my concern has shifted to just loving my Father and bringing Him glory with my life. Life is so much more FREE! He has been so good to me and my family....there is no transformation as amazing as a changed life by Christ🔥🙌🏼❤️
Day 15: HAPPY DANCE 💃🏻 Half way there! Today’s snow day called for some veggie soup featuring the green monster! .... so I threw all my veggies in there (potatoes, carrots, zucchini, broccoli, green beans, and Brussel sprouts 🤷🏻♀️) I couldn’t let them go to waste! It turned out pretty good!! Bad news is: I’m craving chocolate again.

One of my favorite moves from Booty Day! Yes, I did get out of those cozy pajamas just to workout 😂 I’m on Day 2/80, and I’m loving the new routines! I muted it so you don’t hear my knee pop 😬 Keep those knees slightly bent with your core in. #bootygains#athomefitness#homeworkout#imstillunpacking
~Mama Life Hacks~
Let's be honest motherhood is all about juggling & praying we get it right. I'm always curious what other mamas do to make their life a little less crazy & more balanced.
I'm not perfect at all but notice when I do these 3 things my day is smoother, it helps me to be a better mama, & I feel less stressed.
Stay on top of the laundry:
We are a family of 6 and the laundry piles up so fast... & when that happens it becomes overwhelming. I do a load Every. Single. Day. and by load I mean wash, dry, fold & put away.
This has been the biggest game changer for me & my family.
After chasing kids all day or a long day working at the hospital the last thing I want to do is stress about what I'm going to make for dinner, because it will end in take-out or YOYO (your on your own). So to make my life easier I sit down and write out a menu for the week... I write down everything I will need for these meals & hit the grocery store. Knowing what we are having for dinner that night & that I have everything on hand to make it makes my life so much easier. (Side note, I always keep ingredients for my go-to meals on hand... grilled cheese & tomatoe soup, stuff for spaghetti & tacos)
Go to bed with a clean kitchen:
This is a must!!! No one wants to wake up to a sink full of dishes & messy counters. Before I go to bed I make sure my kitchen is nice and tidy... counters wiped down, garbage taken out, dish washer empty & ready for the next days dishes. When this is done I have been known to tell my family the kitchen is closed & don't you dare step foot in there!!! This really sets my mood for the day.
What are your mama hacks that keep you focused & ready to tackle the day?
When you put God first, everything else follows and falls into place.
We may not understand why things fall where they may, but Gods plan is always 1,000 steps ahead of our own.
Let go, and let God 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽
Some of you may know, but I’m a pretty big #bonjovi fan and sat FRONT ROW for his last Ottawa concert in 2013!! Here’s a throw back for you when I snuck in my pro camera and captured the most amazing photos of this man and his band. Jon and Richie Sambora made lots of interaction with us and it was a life experience I’ll never forget. It might have been because of my big pink “kiss me” heart which HIS photographer capture of me as well, how awesome right?
See @stuntmanstu I told you he was my man! Haha!
Now my issue is how the heck do I get Front Row seats for his upcoming Ottawa show! #wishing#bonjovifans#richiesambora#ottawaconcert#ottawaconcertphotography#livingonaprayer#jonbonjovi#thinfstour
Cold day=No school day=Pajamas and coffee day! I love having my little one home (minus the consistent requests to watch tv🙄). I am so grateful to be able to work from home every day, but I’m particularly thankful on days like today! If your job is making you 😢 today, msg me. You have other options! #workfromhome#snowday#grateful
