Paper Cut Pictures

Valentine’s Reading List

I’m not sure why I love Valentine’s Day so much, but I always have. What can I say, I love to love. Here’s our current Valentine’s book line up that it already on their shelves in their bedroom for before bed reading. Instead of giving you the generic back of the book description of each…

Cadence turns 6!

In the months leading up to Cadence’s sixth Birthday, we tried to nail down one theme, but she just couldn’t decide! Then it hit me, “Who says you have to pick one theme for a party?” So, I made it a mix of all her favorite things (well, besides ‘LOL Surprise’ because that’s just taking…

THEY WON’T EVEN REMEMBER

To be honest I used to be in that camp.

This post may seem a bit random, but I felt like mixing things up and sharing some lifestyle type posts, because, well, there’s a whole lot more to me than spiritual posts. Being a Pastor’s wife and co-leading our church and being a momma and wife are my main passions for sure. But, after that…

We’re A Coastal Kind Of Family

Well, this is my first old-fashioned blog post. You know, the kind where you actually share family photos, thoughts, and reflections without a “top 5 ways”, or links to where you can buy things. So, here you will find some super sweet pictures of our family enjoying the beautiful coast we live on, my thoughts…

Simplified Ways To Study The Bible

We all live such busy lives and sometimes it seems hard to make the time to sit and read or study the Bible. But, when we do make time for the word there are so many benefits! My husband always says, “If you don’t know what the Lord is saying, then start with reading what…
