I’m telling you this “Reign of Grace” series at James River Church is literally blowing my mind and rebuilding the foundation of my faith. I never even realized how works-minded my view of God truly was until this series. I always knew I was very task oriented and that it carried over into my relationship with God, so I would try to be mindful of that. But oh my goodness, it’s so much deeper than that because the way I interpret scripture now is completely different because of what I have learned in this series. The way I view the sacrifice God made for us is completely different. The way I view God’s love for us is completely different. I’m just grateful. So grateful to my church and the leadership there for taking the time to walk us through Romans verse by verse. Nothing like having everything you’ve ever believed about God be turned on it’s head for the better. All the sermons are online and I can’t recommend them enough. “We must be motivated by the love of Jesus, not the rules.” ❤️
"Most of the greatest achievements on the planet are unknown to others - private overcomings, silent attempts at belief, re-opening a shattered heart. The real path of champions truly lies within - the transforming of suffering into expansion, the clearing of ...debris, the building of a healthy self-concept without tools. The greatest achievers have found a way to believe in something good despite being traumatized and fractured on life’s battlefields.. No matter what else they accomplish in their lives, they are already champions. One day the world will realize that it is much harder to heal a shattered heart than excel at athletics. Go(l)d medals all around..." ~ Jeff Brown @jeffbrownsoulshaping 🙏🏼✨ With deep thanks to dear Jolenny @sacredsoulliving 🌹🙏🏼 for sharing these words of heart some time ago 💌 #beyoubelove, #love_isinthelittlethings, #mouichidokyoto, #gratitude, #jeffbrown, #kyoto, #japan, #explorejapan, #iamhertribe, #sgig, #instasg, #instagramsg, #lifeisbeautiful
A new book. Incredibly emotional + raw. I see parts of myself in its pages. I’m not an alcoholic and never have been. I don’t do drugs. But I feel too much. I’m overwhelmed by others feelings. I’m sensitive and it sometimes hurts. This book 📚 is about accepting our human flaws. And right now, knowing I’m not the only fucked up woman in the world feels so good.
Empowerment is where it's at, and it's truly a gift we can only give ourselves. By opening our hearts and eyes to see our strength, our potential, our beauty and our straight up GOODNESS no matter our shape, size, age, race, whatever! You are ENOUGH and worthy of love and celebration. I am thankful that I took today to empower myself through certification to become a @kickitbyeliza instructor! Pushing way outside of my comfort zone, and being welcomed with open arms by this incredible community of strong females is one of the best things I've done for myself in recent years. I'm grateful to Eliza and the Kick it Crew for being a source of inspiration, and helping me see my mission and purpose to help women see their own AMAZING strength, positive energy and beauty through Spark Experiences, and eventually through teaching Kick It classes! Feeling focused and my heart is full! 🖤
Let your heart break daily. In conversation. Over song lyrics. During the pause right before the sunrise. While your sipping coffee + looking into the eyes of someone talking about something they love. For its when we break a little we come alive. It’s in this space of feeling we get to expand. And it’s here in our vulnerability and openness, we step into our greatest selves. #iamhertribe#heartbroken#irise#photography#myart#vulnerability#photooftheday#intaphoto
I will share this picture until the end of my days because it’s so magical and gives me all the feels. This year is so special because both of these ladies become mamas. You guys, I can’t. These two as moms. Forget about it. I am so excited to see them take on that role with grace, love, and true passion. But back to why I’m posting in the first place— Today is Nancy’s birthday and that sweet friend has been a constant in my life for YEARS. Miles have never mattered and I’m so glad that distance has not impacted my friendships with these two. I don’t know who I would be without Nancy’s influence and I’m so glad I don’t have to find out. Nanc, you know that you are my Ann Perkins and the lessons you have taught me on purpose and by accident have saved my life. I love you and I like you, you opalescent tree shark ❤️
I’m loud. I laugh with my whole body. I’m opinionated. I love hard. I’m not subtle. I’ve wanted to change all of these things about myself at some point in my life. Not anymore. I’m ready to lean in and accept all my mess. I think you should, too.
Eating a whole lot of the same foods over here 🙋🏼 I'm in the final weeks of the semester so I'm writing papers nonstop, planning end the the year events, and getting ready to move to VA for the summer (more on that later) which leaves limited time for creativity in the kitchen. Time to fall back on some healthy favorites! ❤️ Just made this chia seed pudding in my story and I think I might have to save it to my highlights, should I?!
