You know those days when you really allow yourself to stay within the constraints of those 24 hours and it feels like the biggest breath of fresh air?

Let yourself do that today! Actually, don’t just let yourself, MAKE yourself. Be intentional about how you’re spending your time, where your letting your thoughts travel, who you’re spending it with and how it’s sewing into your tomorrow.

You have a football Saturday planned? GOOD. Be there! Have FUN! Laugh. Eat queso. Don’t wish you were somewhere else.

Sitting on your couch reading a new book?! GREAT! Soak it in. Don’t halfway read and halfway be relishing on the fact that you aren’t on a trip to the islands cause you saw it on your IG feed. Let the words penetrate your heart and really understand what they mean.

You’re cleaning out the closet for fall?! FANTASTIC! That’ll feel so good. Simplifying and organizing always makes us feel better as we transition to a new season and just approach our everyday lives. Proud of you. Open the windows & listen to music while you work.

Basically, however you seize your day, be all there & be glad to be all there! If you feel like you’re wasting it– um, hello!– get up and do something else. Or relax. Or whatever you need to do.

Happy Saturday, friends

It required some changing of habits and some rearranging of my schedule. It...

Goodbye to guilt & receive His grace.
Goodbye to guilt & receive His grace.

May 30, 2018

I used to believe that guilt was holy in a way. It showed that I knew what Jesus was asking of me in a moment or that I knew something I should’ve done or been, and I regretted not being/seeing/doing that. Maybe it’s guilt over not being the best daughter you can be. Or brother, wife, husband, friend, sister, etc. Maybe it’s those words you said about a coworker in the heat of the moment that you didn’t...

Speak them out loud.
Speak them out loud.

I remember sitting in a conference a couple years ago and the speaker said, “Tell yourself out loud! Speak it over yourself but give it volume!” And I’m thinking, “I have never done that, consistently at least.” I was also thinking, “Is that like a true difference-maker? The whole giving it volume, making sure your own ears hear it thing?” Well, joke’s on me because I have noticed, over the big and the small things, that when I...
