The further along I get in my faith journey, the less comfortable it gets. And I'm coming to realize that this is how it's supposed to be. Because God doesn't really care about my comfort. He cares about whether or not my heart, and therefore my life, reflects His character. And the process of having my heart and life reflect His character isn't even remotely comfortable. It's hard, it's messy and it takes me to places I never thought I would go. And as I look ahead to a brand new year, I'm more aware than ever of the beauty that is found in the discomfort, in the refining process. And I'm praying that I will continue to learn to welcome it into my life, to embrace it. Because I know that what awaits me in the uncomfortable is going to be far more incredible than anything I would ever find in the comfortable. ❄️ .

I never used to consider myself a creative.  I thought that term was used for painters, photographers, even actors.  But as I embrace my title as writer more and more, I've discovered I am totally a part of that club. (And you are too!!) ⠀
⠀
The @risingtidesociety is a big part of helping me recognize that. Along with @honeybook, they connect & empower creatives through the web. 
Because of this sweet network, and their focus of #communityovercompetition, I've gotten connected with other creatives in my niche, writers.  And that, is irreplaceable. It's easy to feel lost in a sea of photographers or other creators, but with people like @brookeelleninc in my community, I'm constantly reminded I am not alone.  #WeAreTheCreativeEconomy⠀

🙏🏻 AREN'T ya GRATEFUL 😂🙏🏻
🙏🏻 AREN'T ya GRATEFUL 😂🙏🏻
A few years ago, I had an anxiety attack. I didn't tell many people about it at the time -- hoping it wouldn't shatter anyone's opinion of me as having it "all together." Ah ... the allure of the facades we create.
•
But then, that same year, I realized that All Together was All Too Much Work. I talked to a spiritual mentor. I asked for prayers. I slowed down enough to let myself feel all my feelings. I slowed down enough to let God put both hands on the side of my face, look into my eyes, and tell me to "breathe ... just breathe."
•
I am learning to spot the triggers of an anxiety attack coming on. I am learning to sit still long enough to hear my Father whisper, "breathe."
•
Key word there? AM learning. I am. Am. This isn't over for me. The GOOD news is, I'm more honest with myself about myself. The bad news is, there's not a magic line one crosses where you get this all figured out. If I told you there was, I'd just be living another kind of "I've Got It All Together, Baby."
•
Where are you today, friend? Are you worn out, spiraling? God is saying it to you ... "BREATHE."
•
That's what this book is for me -----> Introducing: "A Moment to Breathe." I'm one of dozens of authors who have contributed to this 365-day devotional. It's releasing next month.
•
I'm telling you about it early, because if you pre-order a copy of the devo from Lifeway, you get the free mug. (Mug Offer only available at Lifeway stores, including online)
•
Also, the publishers have designed a gorgeous FREE 10-Day Sampler of the first 10 days from the book. Get the sampler by signing up at the link in my profile.
•
I contributed to this book -- BECAUSE I NEEDED THIS BOOK. I am guessing you need room to breathe too ... to hear the whisper of God in your soul, saying, "Girl ... Just breathe."

You don’t see a ton of celebrations and fanfare welcoming in Monday, do you? And I totally understand why. Some of us don’t enjoy what we’re doing and fewer of us still haven’t been taught how to manage our stress. But I believe that a grateful heart changes the way we see the responsibilities of life. So today, let’s CELEBRATE another Monday because we are breathing, there are people that love us, and we have a whole week to shape into our own! Yay for Monday! Now let’s start the week right and drop something you’re thankful for below...

One thing that has struck me while going through this advent reading plan is how everything was so perfectly planned from the beginning. Christmas didn’t start with the birth of Jesus, or the angel coming to Mary; it began waaaay back in the OT with an aging couple who thought they would never have a child. But God had a different plan. 👶🏻

"...Sometimes I think of Peace as if it is a destination. A thing to be earned and only attained when I accomplish my goals. I think to myself, maybe I will find peace when I fit into my old jeans, go out on a date with my husband, reconnect with my friends or make more money. Self-improvement is good and dreams and goals are great to have however all these things are conditional, and ultimately fleeting. My weight fluctuates, I argue with my husband, my friend flaked on me, the extra money I made is gone far more quickly than it was made and I know that the same can be said for me I'm hardley the perfect wife friend or mother! The truth is that nothing and no one in this world are perfect... we just aren't equipped to fulfill all of each other's needs 100% and that is as it should be! That way we are reminded to turn to the Lord above all else and when all else inevitably falls short... Faith in God might not be new age or popular but it is ancient, beautiful, and constant... Let's take comfort in the knowledge of the unimaginable peace to come and partake in the peace he offers us while we wait."
✌Peace be with you! ❤Cait

“Waiting on God Well was quite insightful and encouraging. It gave some very practical tools that can help us continue waiting on the Lord and not give up!” -  Pastor Lillian Gutierrez, Love Gospel Assembly

I'm so touched that my books are encouraging readers. God is Good!

Waiting on God Well is available in print and on Kindle on Amazon.
Blessings!

The further along I get in my faith journey, the less comfortable it gets. And I'm coming to realize that this is how it's supposed to be. Because God doesn't really care about my comfort. He cares about whether or not my heart, and therefore my life, reflects His character. And the process of having my heart and life reflect His character isn't even remotely comfortable. It's hard, it's messy and it takes me to places I never thought I would go. And as I look ahead to a brand new year, I'm more aware than ever of the beauty that is found in the discomfort, in the refining process. And I'm praying that I will continue to learn to welcome it into my life, to embrace it. Because I know that what awaits me in the uncomfortable is going to be far more incredible than anything I would ever find in the comfortable. ❄️ .

My background in studio art from my college days taught me that presentation of work is absolutely key. I'm still obsessed with my wooden watch from @jordwatches but the packaging makes me swoon too.  It arrived in an actual treasure chest -- a wooden box with a secret drawer, and a tiny burlap pillow. Yes. Please. I wear the Frankie Dark Sandalwood + Slate watch, which is made of 100% natural, hand-finished woods -- my artist's eye is in love with how flawless the craftsmanship is. My adventurer's soul loves that it keeps track of my time while foraging.
-
Head over to my bio to learn how you can get 25% off a wooden watch of your own, and also read about how I use it for exploring! Maybe find yourself a glass of wine or whiskey, and maybe order yourself a Christmas present 🌲🌲🌲

My background in studio art from my college days taught me that presentation of work is absolutely key. I'm still obsessed with my wooden watch from @jordwatches but the packaging makes me swoon too. It arrived in an actual treasure chest -- a wooden box with a secret drawer, and a tiny burlap pillow. Yes. Please. I wear the Frankie Dark Sandalwood + Slate watch, which is made of 100% natural, hand-finished woods -- my artist's eye is in love with how flawless the craftsmanship is. My adventurer's soul loves that it keeps track of my time while foraging. - Head over to my bio to learn how you can get 25% off a wooden watch of your own, and also read about how I use it for exploring! Maybe find yourself a glass of wine or whiskey, and maybe order yourself a Christmas present 🌲🌲🌲 - #jordwatch  #jordfrankie  #jordwatches  #woodwatch  #sponsored

Juicing is one of my favorite things to do. You can play around with different colors during the week and it’s an easy way to increase vegetable intake. Since it’s Wednesday I went for the color green. Celery not only tastes wonderful , it is great in reducing inflammation in the body, benefits the skin, and can also relax the muscles helping lower blood pressure. Isn’t nature amazing!

"Many times when I can't figure out what God is going to do next in my life I get frustrated. What about you? You think God is going to do things one way, but He does something completely different. 
We can become upset and anxious or we can embrace the unknowns and trust that God has the best in mind for us always." Crossing Your Jordan River is available on Amazon.

A day late on #litcritdec17 but I'll just post twice today. Day 12 - a book that gives me hope.
⭐🌙⭐🌙⭐🌙⭐🌙⭐🌙⭐🌙⭐🌙⭐🌙⭐ Craving Connection - 30 Challenges for Real-Life Engagement by the #incourage community. ⭐🌙⭐🌙⭐🌙⭐🌙⭐🌙⭐🌙⭐🌙⭐🌙 There are many reasons I like this book. I'm still working my way through it but I love that it highlights other women my age struggling to make friends. 
Fun Fact: I don't make friends very easily.  It's true! Most people's first impression of me is a very pinched, hyper-corrective and Hermione-esque 'know-it-all' vibe. I think they hear the way I speak (very precisely, thanks to years of theater) and my love of knowing things comes out in conversation. I love to learn and know and discuss, which in all honesty may put people off. I have a large vocabulary I use frequently (some people don't like that either). Anyway, it's a perfect Molotov cocktail of social disaster. 
This year I've been especially introspective about it. I've had the great pleasure of making 2 new friends this year, who are very dear to me.

This book gives me hope that there are other people out there who, like me, struggle to really connect. And that there are others who maybe want to be my friend.

I'll never forget when one of my Hungarian students in my English class in the village voluntarily translated the words to Joy to the World as homework one week around Christmas time. When she brought me her completed work, I poured over the words wondering how they may have seemed to her. The process of translating something can often be similar to meditating. I wondered if the words spoke to her. Being a song I'd heard all my life, it may have been the first time I realized that the gospel was clearly presented in it.

Joy to the world, the Lord has come!
Let earth receive her King
Let every heart prepare Him room
And Heaven and nature sing

The only joy comparable to the joy God gave me through making me His own, is the joy that that student now knows Him and this otherworldly joy as well. I rejoice for so many reasons this advent season, and salvation is one of them.

God’s grace is sufficient enough for me. No matter what other people think or say after I’ve made a mistake, what Christ did for me is all that matters. #incourage

Health Benefits! 
Walking barefoot on grass is a great way to relieve stress, you get vitamin D boost and a peaceful atmosphere. When you connect to earths natural energy by being barefoot on grass it leads to an exchange of energies that clean and neutralize your body to get rid of the negative energies.
