Paper Cut Pictures

I don’t know about you, but I grew up loving and being drawn to all of Eric Carle’s books. I still love reading “The Rainbow Fish” to my littles while taking in the beauty of those shiny scales. The storyline for “The Lost Crown” came to me so quickly, but the illustration part overwhelmed me…

A Matter Of Perspective

Oh 2016, I can’t say that I will miss you. I am honestly so glad you’re over. You were the toughest, hardest, most stressful, emotional…well, you get the point. Im glad you’re coming to an end. But, even though you were in so many ways miserable, I am thankful for what you taught me. I…

Signs and Wonders

Signs and Wonders, what are they really? How would you define or describe them in today’s language? Most of us may be able to tell stories from the Bible about all of the amazing miracles that took place in that time, but if asked if signs and wonders were evident in their lives today, I…

Shopkin Party

I think this was the easiest and most fun out of all of the parties I have planned. I mean, Shopkins are just SO cute, bright and fun! My daughter loved every bit of it! Oh, and this was my first time ever making a piñata! I love the taco Shopkin and couldn’t find one…

Subtle Ways

Sometimes it can seem unattainable to live our lives on this earth as a true disciple. That is, someone who truly denies themselves and takes up their cross daily. But, Jesus gave us clear expectations when it comes to being one of His disciples: Luke 9:23 Then He said to them all, “If anyone desires to…

A Place Of Rest

          Time. The thing nobody seems to have enough of. Most go through their lives busy and rushed, trying to get everything done. It’s so easy to live this way day in and day out, never stopping to think about the bigger purpose or reason for our existence here on earth….

The Comparison + Self Conceit Trap

 So often, we compare our lives with others- placing ourselves higher or lower in our own personal mindset. In today’s society of social media, the desire to display the best version of ourselves only adds to chances of falling prey to the comparison and self-conceit trap.  After all, the more attention gained, the better one…

The Struggle is Real: 2 under 2

My children are 18 months apart. Though they were not both under two for long, they were both still very much in need of full time assistance for long enough. I’d like to say that I was never “merely surviving” and instead “always thriving” as a mother, but I would be lying. Ha! The struggle…
