What’s better than getting the cutest outfit and helping those in need? 🎄This is one of my new favorite dresses, perfect for the holidays/winter, it’s from  @shopfidelity. Abbey is the owner, and her entire mission is to help those struggling with addiction and their families by donating to a rehab facility called NCADD in Phoenix.  Abbey’s beautiful mother passed away over a year ago from alcohol and drug addiction. When you purchase something from @shopfidelity you are apart of helping other families not go through the heartache that Abbey and her family has gone through.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Her mission is near and dear to my heart. ❤️Part of the reason I got my Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy is my heart for those with addiction and their families. I was a drug and alcohol rehab counselor and have experienced firsthand the devastation. I’ve lost friends from addiction and watching loved ones struggle and it’s devastating. The church Caleb and I go to helps amazing people who some struggle with addiction and is all about putting dreams back in their heart. I love that I can share this mission with you!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The greatest gift 🎁 is giving back to others in need, and it’s also fun getting something beautiful in return. This would be a perfect gift for the holidays and this weekend @shopfidelity is having 30% OFF sale!! Do you love giving back during this time of year? Love hearing from you!

When I read the words she wrote about me last week it felt like I got punched in the gut. 🤛🏼I had never heard anyone make fun of my “in their opinion” physical “flaw” before. And honestly, it sent me over the edge that day.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It popped up in my facebook notifications and it was cruel and others joined in. 🥺 Unfortunately I had already been struggling with comparison, and feelings of not being good enough that day. So it hit me extra hard.  I know their comments should not bother me, but words are powerful, and I’ve struggled not to notice what they said every time I look in the mirror since then. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’m sharing this vulnerable story with you, because sadly I don’t think I’m alone. 🤦🏽‍♀️It breaks my heart to see this woman in her 50’s (and many other women from this ad) say such cruel things to another woman. Any hurtful thing said to another person breaks my heart. 💔But it shows me the condition of their heart.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When we are filled with love and peace within ourselves, there’s not room for comparison & envy. But when we are starving for attention, affirmation, feelings of not being good enough: we will grab at anything we think will make ourselves feel better, for some; that means tearing apart someone else (even people online or on TV) 💔It might temporally relieve the void they are feeling, but it leaves them more isolated & bitter.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I read 📖 Colossians 3 in my devo. time the next morning. It talks about… “Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things…Put to death; sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed… rid yourselves of: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips. As God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience…forgive as the Lord forgave you.”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I asked for this to make me and others better and not bitter. ❤️The temptation is to grab at envy & comparison, but let’s say no to those toxic things and hold onto the truth: each person is beautifully and wonderfully made, unique and has a purpose. What are you celebrating that I can celebrate with you?

Yesterday I tried to be off my phone most of the day. We went to church with our family, and a nice hike with them, and breakfast at our favorite spot. It was so freeing and amazing to just be present. I need more of that in my life. Trying to find the balance between the hustle and just being present. Have any pointers on staying present during this busy season? Love hearing from you!

What’s your work space like? this is how i’ve been working lately. since i’m an entrepreneur, small business owner, i’m my own boss. i need to find ways to motivate myself. so i tell myself: "i’m not allowed to go for a walk until i finish xyz” for example. but i get so antsy just sitting at my desk, and i know it’s not good for my health. i’m so grateful to now have this @flexispot_sitstandmove #getflexifit #sponsored.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
it’s been such a blessing for me! i either sit here and ride, or stand up on the other side (i switch back and forth throughout the day). the desk is nice and big and the seat and desk are totally adjustable (caleb uses it as well and he’s 6’5”). i was surprised at how cute it looks in our place as well.  being active helps concentration so i’ve noticed i am more productive throughout the day and feel healthier.

do you have a job where you’re in front of a computer a lot? have you ever used a bike desk?

Shattered sight. 💔Has this ever affected you? Watching Once Upon A Time last night I had tears in my eyes when one of the characters receives the “curse of shattered sight.” She once held her loved one on a pedestal. Only seeing the good in her, the beautiful, lovely praiseworthy things. But after her eyes were affected by shattered sight she was only able to see the hurt and pain. Only the bad things about her loved one. And it caused such turmoil and devastation.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’ve been affected by this curse at times, and that’s why this scene of the show hit me so hard. 🤦🏽‍♀️Instead of focusing on the good about God, Caleb, family, friends or strangers there are times where I only saw the bad. The ways I was hurt.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It made me think of marriages, couples I’ve worked with, once so happy and filled with love and admiration for each other, and then slowly the bitterness, resentment, 💔the “curse of shattered sight” creeping in.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As I sat next to Caleb watching the show I prayed 🙏🏼that God would always help me see him and others from the most beautiful perspective. With love, compassion and grace. The way that I want to be seen. It made me think of times throughout my marriage where I didn’t deserve grace and love, but Caleb gave it to me anyways. The way he looks a me and sees only the best in me, which calls forth my best and I’m able to keep being the fuller version of myself. When I call out the good, pure, excellent things in Caleb, when I see him from that beautiful perspective, that’s what he walks into. Our home so filled with love, grace and peace. But when the shattered sight creeps in: it’s the very opposite.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Has the curse of shattered sight been affected your view on God, yourself, or others lately and stealing your peace and joy❓Reframing and retraining our vision to look for the noble, pure, lovely things bring abundant peace in our relationships and peace within ourselves. ❤️Love hearing from you!

The question ⁉️we get asked a ton in life (and on our instastory ask me anything) is “When are you going to have kids.” ⁉️Caleb and I have been married over 5 years so this question makes sense for sure. I got so many messages when I responded “we’re still not sure if we’re going to have kids or not.” There were so many sweet messages from you guys, saying what great parents you think we would be. 
___
We appreciate all the love and support so much. ❤️There are so many factors that go into this decision. Health, timing, and things I’m not going to talk about online right now. We aren’t sure if we are even able to have kids. We both LOVE children, and the older we get, the more we admire good parents. 
___
I volunteered at an orphanage in Rwanda 🇷🇼 and I asked God if he wanted me to stay and be a mom to the children there, that’s how much love I have for them.  Caleb and I both love pouring into the lives of kids and want to keep giving back to the next generation and help show them how loved, special and purposeful their lives are. 
___
I’ve volunteered/had jobs for most of my life where I’ve gotten to do ministry with kids, I was on staff with Young Life, was a Bible teacher, Caleb is a middle school teacher, Caleb was a coach for years, I was a coach,  we’ve both helped with special needs kids, underprivileged kids, and at orphanages. ✨That is some of the most fulfilling and beautiful times we have. 
___
So we don’t know if we will have biological kids, adopt, foster, or just continue to pour into the lives of kids as we’ve been doing. 🥰No matter what our decision, your love and support means so much to us! Is there any question❓you get asked a ton? Love hearing from you!
