“Your Word is a lamp for my feet and a light on my path” -Psalm 119:105 One of my goals for 2018 has been to grow my relationship with the Lord by focusing on abiding with Him instead of striving. For me this has meant spending time in the Word daily so that I can remain rooted and established in Him as I go about my day. One of my new favorite tools is this Write the Word journal from @cultivatewhatmatters. I started this journal on January 1st and just finished the last page today. I look forward to looking up the Scripture listed each day and love the extra space provided to get after grateful (another of my 2018 goals) and write out anything that’s on my heart. Cultivating this habit daily is strengthening my relationship with the Lord and changing my heart little by little. And friends, little by little progress adds up. #powersheets2018#powersheets#cultivatewhatmatters

If you're wondering about something, bring it up! It is good to get into the habit of using verbal communication with the man you are dating, rather than overthinking something on your own. ••• This applies to every stage of the dating process- wondering who is paying on the first date, defining where things are at after a number of dates, wanting to meet each other’s families, and so on. Of course there are wise ways to bring up topics and timing is key (like not when either of you are hungry 😂), but otherwise no question is off limits. ••• I had to let go of the notion that it was up to the guy to bring up every clarifying conversation or topic. A huge part of dating is about finding someone you can learn to communicate well with. Start by graciously giving the guy a glimpse into what you’re thinking rather than expecting him to read your mind. 👍🏼 ••• #heydatingcoach#datingcoach#christiandating#datingadvice#datingwisdom#datinggoals#cultivatewhatmatters#hopewriters

I took some time to slow down today. I don’t design on Tuesdays and Thursdays because my kids are home, so we were just able to relax and simply BE. We played, and laughed and had a random dance party. And you know what? None of it is on social media because my phone was away for the most part. ☺️ The kids are waking up from their nap, and I spent a few minutes working on my business goals for the next couple of months using my two fav business books: the Bible and my @emmeliedelacruz workbook. Watching @laracasey’s video on how the Bible was the best business book she’d ever read a few years back changed my mindset towards my career in the Most because way. And I owe a lot of my focus and organizational skills over the last 6 months to Emmelie’s book. She challenged me to not just work, but to learn how to monetize my gifts. I may not have had the confidence to launch my web design and social media marketing businesses back in November if it hadn’t been for her. Be sure to have women in your life who can truly pour truth into you. #cultivatewhatmatters
G A M E O R D A N C E What is life to you? A game or a dance? The mind of the cynic deduces life down to nothing but a heartless game of cat and mouse between a vengeful god of fate and his puppet, mankind. While the heart of the faithful embraces life as joyful dance to the melody of a future not yet seen, but entrusted to and revealed by a loving Father. It is this perspective that makes life something to be lived and loved rather than endured or survived. How you respond in times of trail, reveals what you truly believe. xx #simpleauthenticgrace#simpleauthenticliving 📷: from the other night at the Apple Store. Those beautiful leather balls sparked these thoughts 🏀

📣 Hey ENTREPRENEUR GIRL! Starting a business can be daunting, scary, and put you in a darn right freak out mode. That’s ok, and it happens to each and every one of us. Will I succeed? Am I good enough? Is my brand strong enough to arrive and land on two feet? ✋🏻 YES, it sure is. You see, slow yet steady growth is where your success will sustain. Give yourself and your business organic time + wiggle room to naturally mature. Position yourself for opportunity and a strong foundation. If you’re only in it for the money, you’ve got to reevaluate your passion in it honey ( that rhymed ). 🏃🏽♀️ Take time, but don’t be afraid to jump at opportunities. This isn’t a race to the finish line where you’re gasping for air, but in fact a comfortable brisk walk within a nature trail, taking every single sight on your adventure. Ending with knowledge, experience, growth and a strong brand that represents you and your business. Slow down sister, I know you’re passionate, I’m with ya, but don’t let the fire burn too fast! Enjoy the ride. 💬 Tag a friend who’s making the jump and needs some encouragement!
