Growing up in South Florida my dream was to play for the Miami Dolphins. I’ve always been a big kid so naturally football was my chosen sport. I played in high school but my grades declined making me ineligible for upcoming years. Giving up on myself i continued to gain weight and get bigger and bigger. Being out of high school for 5 years now. Not much outside activity besides work and walking my dogs got me at my highest weight. Last April I randomly jumped on a pallet scale it said 480!!!!. It was a huge surprise i knew i was heavy but not that heavy. Every yearly checkup was a guessing game because the doctor scale only went to 400lb. Well April 29th I decided to change my life around. I may never play for the Dolphins but why not get in shape to look the part.

What defines a women?
A shade of pink or purple?
A dress? A bright lipstick?
Or high heels?

None of them.
She defines herself. She is a blessing.
A reason for someone's happiness.
A smile in tough situation.
A source of inspiration. ❤

John  14:21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.

I have to know Jesus before I can be like Jesus. And the more I obey and follow Him, the more He reveals His awesome character to me. What a God I serve! ❤

Last night was our first meeting of the season for Strength for Single Moms and I am blown away.  God is moving so beautifully in his daughters!! I am continually amazed at how He divinely places and purposes for His children to till the soil of life TOGETHER.  We plant together, we water together, we wait for sunshine and rain together and we reap together .  We are never meant to walk alone , we are not meant to suffer alone, we are not meant to wander alone, no - our growth blooms the most vibrant not singularly but in a garden with many flowers 🌺. Praising God for these beautiful women that I get to serve and do life with. ❤️ @cfsisterhood #strengthforsinglemoms

I found some really cute landscapers to help with all of the aftermath cleanup of Hurricane Irma today.  Our little Kemp-topia needs a lot of love , the piles on our swale are from just a small section of our yard, haven't even touched the back yet.  It will take awhile to get it back to normal but can I say how therapeutic it has been!  And yet I am painfully reminded that all we have to repair is a yard - trees grow back but my heart breaks for Puerto Rico and other islands that have been affected greatly right now with all of the devastation they are experiencing from Irma and Maria. Praying for those dealing with such great losses .  Life is so precious, we have no control over which way the wind blows or the way life tosses us around but those whose hope rests in Christ alone can experience rest even in the darkest storms.  If you are dealing with your own hurricane today...or the aftermath of one whether it be relational, financial, spiritual, health , a wayward child, divorce , loss, grief - I pray that you will fix your eyes on the God who clothes the lilies of the field and feeds the birds of the air and that you may experience peace in knowing He is your hiding place , your hope and your shelter.  #bestill

My thoughts and prayers are with the people, my family, and friends in Puerto Rico. They were recently hit by Irma and are now facing another hit from Hurricane Maria.

I was in middle school the first time I experienced the power of Scripture.  On a junior high church retreat, four middle school girls crammed onto one skinny dorm room bed.  The room was dark and something spooked us.  We were terrified.  In that moment, the Lord used His word to impact us in a significantly tangible way. ⠀⠀
⠀⠀
Ever since that day, I have never doubted that the words in the Bible are living and active. Today on the blog, I'm telling this story; I'd love if you gave it a read. ⠀⠀

Be happy. Be who you wanna be. If others don't like it, then let them be. Happiness is a choice. Life isn't about pleasing everybody.

“And there are also many other things which Jesus did, which if they were written in detail, I suppose that even the world itself would not contain the books that would be written.” John 21:25
.
.
.
Can you even imagine? How many other miracles did Jesus perform while walking the earth? We have no idea - but this tells us that there were so many. This verse makes me think about two things. FIRST, don’t you want God to say this about US??? I want to be out there rocking the world with His love and grace to the point that a book couldn’t contain how many God-sized stories about it, don’t you? Not so that we would be known, but so that HE would be MADE known. Gosh, we need to get after the Holy Spirit, ladies! With His power, we can share, love and serve even the hardest of hearts! .
.
.
SECOND - it makes me think about the men and women’s stories that are contained in scripture and how they are not complete here. That does not mean, God’s Word is not PERFECT, it just means that we are only getting a ten-thousand foot view of what happened, because, of course, a book couldn’t contain it’s entirety. Maybe you ARE a Moses, a David, a Paul. But maybe you aren’t the down-front, give me the microphone and let me preach type of person. That is NOT insignificant, certainly not to the Lord. The Bible contains mentions of all kinds of these men and women, but not the ENTIRETY of their stories! .
.
.
Don’t you see? We ALL have something to contribute to the Kingdom that is significant. Whether that is on stage or behind the scenes. Whether that is in Africa or in our neighborhood. We are ALL a part, because we cannot possibly see the entirety of the story! Keep running YOUR race, sweet friends, because ONE DAY we will understand who was on the sidelines watching us run well. Watching us fall down but get back up, watching us get dehydrated, take a rest and then keep running. You are doing MIGHTY things for the Kingdom in your home, in your workplace, in your community and in your school simply by being IN YOUR LANE and running hard. Keep up the good work, friend. You may be tired, but it is ALL worth it.  #lbfaith

My moment to breathe is when I'm nursing my youngest of four kids. I also try to wake before they all wake up to get a few moments of quiet time and coffee. I'm so grateful to be on the launch team for #amomenttobreathe by the @incourage community. When do you find time to breathe?

•How wonderful it is to turn from our limitations to a God Who has none. - AW Tozer • To be open, real, and genuine with you, I struggle in this area of loving mercy. I get frustrated. I get angry. I feel resentment.  I act like anything but a daughter of the most High. • That's why I need God's mercy so desperately. I fail at walking in the Spirit so often. I allow my stinking dead corpse of an old man, that claps himself in the irons of sin to call the shots. And it's ugly. • But slowly, Jesus is reminding me that the old things are passed away. He has made me NEW. Free from the heavy bondage to sin, free to live and love in Jesus. He shows me His great mercy with each sunrise, and He is teaching me How to love it in my own life. • And so, I share these lessons with you, my sweet friends. You don't have to struggle in your womanhood. You can THRIVE the Bible way. The victory has already been won by our Savior. His mercy is there for you this morning. • Want it. Take it. Use it. Love it. ➡link in bio⬅

Proverbs 16:24.
.
"Kind words are like honey, sweet to the soul..."
.
.
A very familiar verse for a lot of us. After reflecting on this verse and since I'm currently doing the @incourage bible study, We Saved You A Seat, about friendship, I couldn't help but think about warm and deep conversations with good friends. Words have the ability to cut like a knife, but they can also heal and refresh your soul. As women, it can sometimes feel like we're always in competition with each other, but it shouldn't be that way! Godly women should lift each other up! Encourage one another! God wants us to be a blessing to others. Genesis 12:2 says " I will bless you, I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing." You never know the positive impact you can have on someone simply by being encouraging and speaking kind words to their heart. .

May ordinary beauty provide courage + hope for you today. May you know that the God who watches sparrows and cares for the butterflies loves you even more deeply.

Oh, girl, I am in all things. I am in all moments. I cannot be quantified. Can how much I am with you be measured?
-
You are the girl I held in the beginning and the girl I hold now, still. Your maturing is Me birthing you, again. I let you go, and I hold you, and I wait for you, and I pursue you. And we breathe, together: In. Out.
-
Time passing cannot measure my love for you— the increments growing or shrinking as you age. I birth you and you birth too— breathing in sync with my breath —becoming more and more what I see in you, all along.
-
Be born again, this day, with Me, becoming even more yourself: the girl I hold. Pause and drink now. Ingest Me more... this blood poured out, this body broken.
-
Be birthed again. (Eat and drink and be satisfied.) Only then will time be holy— celebrated, appreciated, not feared.

Last leg of our trip and Mommin' ain't easy.  So grateful to have Kevin with us for this portion of the trip.  This has been an adventure for sure, so thankful to make crazy memories with this crew.  Who knew running from a hurricane could have just as many good moments as difficult ones.  And such is life - a journey of highs, lows, laughter, tears, fears, hope, a lot of love and a little bit of crazy mixed in.  Lots of lessons to reflect on from this momentary blip in our lives.  A few tidbits -----
- things are not our treasures  people are
- time is precious use it wisely - we are not promised another day so we must be mindful of the moments we are entrusted with - carefully love the ones you have been blessed to walk life's journey with - be open to life's interruptions and inconveniences - there might just be hidden blessings in the middle of all of it
- stay in step with the word and let the spirit guide you and you will always experience comfort in all of the unknowns ---- oh yeah....and be prepared stock up on water, Doritos and gas because you just never know when another hurricane might blow through your life. 😂

I've been overwhelmed lately by the personal, intimate love of God. He is so detailed in the way He provides for me and brings blessings into my life. But even when my circumstances are challenging, I know He is good... because He is. He can't be anything else. .. (See a closeup video on @kikijournals )

On a morning when screaming from the kids is their primary form of communication and you give a preemptive dose of ibrofen because their nose is running and you wonder if they are sick (again).
•
When they think it's funny to run away from you instead of putting their clothes on. When they want to walk out the door but you have to wrestle them to change their dirty diaper instead. When your coffee goes cold because the minute you sit down to drink it you are asked for more cheerios or milk.
•
Even in THIS kind of crazy morning to get out the door - God meets us moms. He met me in the mess of my mini-van this morning. He put songs on the radio that spoke to my heart and helped me utter words that I didn't even know I needed to say. He showed me what relief is found in putting down our daily frustrations so that we can lift our arms in praise.
•
His mission field is the mundane. His grace is hidden in the gravel of life for us to see. He calls us in the deepest parts of our hearts to look for him and ask him what purpose he has in this time.
•
So, let's lift our hands. Let's laugh. Let's let go and give it all to him. 🙌

When your coffee goes cold because the minute you sit down to drink it you are asked for more cheerios or milk. • Even in THIS kind of crazy morning to get out the door - God meets us moms. He met me in the mess of my mini-van this morning. He put songs on the radio that spoke to my heart and helped me utter words that I didn't even know I needed to say. He showed me what relief is found in putting down our daily frustrations so that we can lift our arms in praise. • His mission field is the mundane. His grace is hidden in the gravel of life for us to see. He calls us in the deepest parts of our hearts to look for him and ask him what purpose he has in this time. • So, let's lift our hands. Let's laugh. Let's let go and give it all to him. 🙌

Cold morning coffee. Leftover afternoon tea. Stacks of papers and lists of must-do's. Yeah, I could use a moment to breathe.
.
What joy when the FedEx truck pulled up with this early copy of @incourage's new devotional! A Moment to Breathe is a beautiful collection of stories that meet you in your everyday mess. Like this mess, perhaps.
.
I'm admittedly biased because I work for (in)courage and I have several stories in this collection, but even if not, I'd happily sing this book's soul-nourishing praises.

If you pre-order it now through LifeWay you will also get a lovely FREE mug from DaySpring. Check out the details here: incourage.me/a-moment-to-breathe

💥MIND BLOWN!💥 My morning video was all about overcoming the fear present in moving forward....and this afternoon I read this amazing quote by @sethgodin !! Check this out! "Fear is the flip side of opportunity. You can't have one without the other, because opportunity represents change...change brings risk. Fear is our compass. It's overrated as an effective warning tool, but in our culture, right now, the best opportunities all carry the same warning. Until you've adopted a posture that change is good & fear is part of the deal, you'll remain paralyzed." Whoa!!! #preach #faithoverfear From book "One Question" by @kenwcoleman

My darling, I reach around now, my arms on your shoulders, my chin on your head. I sit here with you, my beloved one. I kneel beside you, wondering if you will take that deep breath now.
-
Yes, that one. Take that deep breath, my love. It is not good to hold everything in.
-
And now stay. This is you. Claim who you are, my love. Let me help you recognize how I’ve made you to be. Can you say yes to that again, my love? Can you awake this day and see the sun shining forth? Can you ask me to come and bring newness to your heart?
-
You have seen where I’ve been with you. You’ve heard my whispers. Want to ask for even more of me? Want to let me in even more?
-
I wait and stay, filling all the spaces where you let me in.

If the smallest of creatures chooses every evening, under cover of dark and without audience to do their work-offer their beauty up as an act for very survival- who am I to remain idle and silent? Does the spider fear their web inadequate to their neighbor's? Does she avoid the art she was designed to offer by sheer reality the morning's dew and breeze holds her canvas's demise? She creates to live, to gain nourishment for the day. And when the world damages or destroys, the artist rises, watches for night, and gets to work.

“Has the Lord as much delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice.” 1 Samuel 15:22 Obedience is greater than sacrifice. Let that sink in for a second. How many times do I get busy spinning my wheels trying to DO for the Lord instead of do WITH the Lord? How much less stressful would my life be if I just concentrated on obeying instead of sacrificing? Think about what it would look like if our kids spent a gosh darn lot of time serving us but never obeyed? What if they rationalized and argued every time we asked them to do something? (It actually does sound a lot like our life right now!) But, wouldn’t that be incredibly frustrating? Wouldn’t you - as a parent - want obedience rather than their supposed 'sacrifice’? Obedience is a behavior that is indicative of where our hearts are at - whether it’s a child/parent relationship or us and the Lord.

THIS. 👉🏻 “The gospel is not just supposed to be our ticket into heaven, it is to be an entirely new basis of how we relate to God, ourselves and others. It is the source from which everything else flows…the goal of the gospel is not just that we pass some kind of test by accurately recounting the importance of Jesus. The goal of the gospel is to produce a type of people consumed with passion for God and love for others…Being converted to Jesus is not just about learning to obey some rules. Being converted to Jesus is learning to so adore God that we would gladly renounce everything we have to follow Him.” —Gospel, J.D. Greear

Building a campfire is the only thing that would've made this Sunday more golden. Even without, today was the happiest my heart's been since the last time I walked on camp soil. Fontanelle is where I go to feel held by the earth, to be found, to be reminded of how simple and sweet life can be if you simply breathe the sweet air and remember that there's always the place you can return. God moves in the forest. Camp is good for my soul.

Even though the internet can be a mean place, I have "met" so many sweet and encouraging ladies, including Marissa @besavedbygrace. If you remember, I created a page in the Traveling Bible she is making for a child with cancer. Even though she lives in Houston and was affected by Harvey, she still made time to send this sweet happy mail to me. If you want some more encouragement in your feed and beautiful Bible Journaling pages, give her a follow!

This verse has been on my heart today. Too often I go to church looking for MY needs to be served, instead of actively searching out ways to serve others. Too often I sit in the pew with the mindset of a spectator instead of with the goal of worshipping God by the way I listen and obey. Let's purpose to make Christ -and not US- preeminent in our lives! ❤

Early tomorrow I'll begin the just-over-two-hour-drive to the place where my soul belongs and thrives. I'll be doing church at @campfontanelle, I'll be breathing intentionally. My fingers are desperately crossed that the jumbled puzzle that seems to be my life at the moment will fall into pieces that make sense. That always seems to happen at camp. Fingers crossed for tackling loved ones, for revisiting the places that hold a million memory ghosts of life-changing and sweet and side-gripping in laughter - moments. Every bit of my weary being desperately needs tomorrow and I promise to grasp tight to every second I'm at camp. Will you be there, fellow Fontanelle people? Tell me and I'll keep an eye out to tackle you in love, if you need camp as much as I do. It won't be a table, but I want to build a campfire for all of us to gather around 💕 Love you and you and you, always and forever.

Yesterday I sat by the lakefront in Milwaukee with my Bible and a notebook. I didn't really have much expectation for the time, I just knew I wanted to soak up the warmth of the sun and stare over the water. Well let me tell you, there's something about looking over a body of water that inspires my writer's soul. ⠀
⠀
The night before I had just told my husband that I was anxious to submit a piece somewhere but didn't feel like I had any direction. And then the Lord gave me an idea. Sloppily, I scrawled ideas, main points and scripture to go along with it in my notebook. I put down my pen, drove home to my computer, and in a matter of hours I clicked the submit button sending off my submission in time to meet the midnight deadline. ⠀
⠀
Writing is like that- one minute you have nothing and the next it's like your fingers can't move fast enough. It's an unpredictable craft, but I'm thankful it's mine. And I'm ever so thankful for the lake and how the Lord inspires me through it. ⠀

My flight got in at midnight and my kids wake up at the same time they always do. So today's "mini-votion" is brought to you in yoga pants as I to find life today in God's word BEFORE I enter those doors again.
•
I land at a place in scripture that reminds me how crazy it is that God chose me. How he continually puts me in positions and daily circumstances that humble me and make me feel pretty weak.
•
I don't know what he has planned for it, but my prayer is that I wouldn't take credit for any of it. May I be reminded by his promises in scripture that his power works best in the weaknesses I often bemoan.
•
So today, let's boast in him. Let's not be ashamed of those bags under our eyes. Let's not feel guilty for going for that second or third cup of coffee because we can be assured that the times we feel the weakest he promises to display his strength.

📝📝📝Desiderare di vedere il Budda è già vederlo. È fidarsi che la Buddità esiste. Anche se i nostri sensi non percepiscono che dolore, anche se la fatica di vivere sembra troppa, anche se il mondo sembra girare al contrario, e la morte appare un vuoto insopportabile. È fidarsi che la nostra vita, la nostra mente abbia il potere di percepirla, di ascoltarla la voce del Budda che dice: «Sono sempre qui, non mi estinguo mai». Qui, in questi occhi che lacrimano, in questo senso di perdita, in questo desiderio di curare la vita. Qui, in questo inginocchiarsi o sedersi, con tutta l’umiltà che abbiamo, unire i palmi delle mani, offrire incenso e acqua, e tempo e voce. Qui, in questo offrire la vita, tutto ciò che si ha e non si ha, colmi di fiducia, colmi di desiderio, colmi di speranza.
Allora, proprio allora, tutto comincia ad apparire per quello che è. Allora riusciamo a percepire la danza di vita e morte, di gioia e dolore, di benefici e disgrazie, percepiamo la Legge mistica che tutto permea e muove, la musica e il ritmo delle cose che accadono. Allora, in quel ritmo, in quell’andare e venire, fermarsi e iniziare, il nostro io si allarga, si fa passaggio, occasione per manifestare il potere della Legge, il potere del Budda che è nei nostri cuori. E la nostra fede trasforma il dolore in benefici, il senso di vuoto in ricerca. Il nostro piccolo io, cieco, sordo, “obnubilato”, lascia spazio alla Buddità, alla forza, alla gioia dell’universo. E ogni cosa è un Budda, ogni persona. Ogni foglia che nasce o cade. Ogni terra è approdo.

📝📝📝Desiderare di vedere il Budda è già vederlo. È fidarsi che la Buddità esiste. Anche se i nostri sensi non percepiscono che dolore, anche se la fatica di vivere sembra troppa, anche se il mondo sembra girare al contrario, e la morte appare un vuoto insopportabile. È fidarsi che la nostra vita, la nostra mente abbia il potere di percepirla, di ascoltarla la voce del Budda che dice: «Sono sempre qui, non mi estinguo mai». Qui, in questi occhi che lacrimano, in questo senso di perdita, in questo desiderio di curare la vita. Qui, in questo inginocchiarsi o sedersi, con tutta l’umiltà che abbiamo, unire i palmi delle mani, offrire incenso e acqua, e tempo e voce. Qui, in questo offrire la vita, tutto ciò che si ha e non si ha, colmi di fiducia, colmi di desiderio, colmi di speranza. Allora, proprio allora, tutto comincia ad apparire per quello che è. Allora riusciamo a percepire la danza di vita e morte, di gioia e dolore, di benefici e disgrazie, percepiamo la Legge mistica che tutto permea e muove, la musica e il ritmo delle cose che accadono. Allora, in quel ritmo, in quell’andare e venire, fermarsi e iniziare, il nostro io si allarga, si fa passaggio, occasione per manifestare il potere della Legge, il potere del Budda che è nei nostri cuori. E la nostra fede trasforma il dolore in benefici, il senso di vuoto in ricerca. Il nostro piccolo io, cieco, sordo, “obnubilato”, lascia spazio alla Buddità, alla forza, alla gioia dell’universo. E ogni cosa è un Budda, ogni persona. Ogni foglia che nasce o cade. Ogni terra è approdo.
