Rings and Things

encouragement, faith

It felt like a big win:  I was at home when Fed Ex delivered my package. I had to sign for it as well, so it was an all-around miracle. I was so excited to open the contents that I ripped into it right away. When I opened the tiny box, stuffed inside a bunch […]

In a Moment

encouragement, faith

Recently, a friend shared with me the song, “One Day{When We All Get to Heaven}”, and I haven’t been able to get enough. Amelia refers to it as the “Heaven” song, and we sing along together. We even sang it at the balloon release I went to a few weeks ago. I feel like I […]

New Year, New Fear


encouragement, New Year

2019 is knocking at the door. I bought my new planner yesterday, usually an act that brings a lot of excitement. At the tail end of 2018 though, I don’t know how to feel about a new year and the crisp pages of a new planner. For a few years during the last days of […]

Advent Jesse Tree


holidays

December is here! Advent is in full swing, and Christmas will be here so soon! I wanted to share an Advent tradition that our family started last year, and we are already loving it so much; the Jesse Tree!

October Book Review


book review

I am not going to lie, October was not my favorite month. Typically, I love all that this month has to offer, but this month was hectic and our family struggled to find our rhythm and it felt like our “normal days” were few and far between. We are eagerly awaiting November!  I did mange […]
