Surprise! 🌟We booked a last minute flight to be with family in Pittsburgh this past weekend. Our aunts in the fight of her life, they gave her several weeks to live several weeks ago. I’m so glad I got to hold her hand, pray with her and see our family. It’s the longest I’ve gone without seeing my side of the family. Almost a year. My hearts full of love and remembering the important things in life. 
___
Although it’s so difficult and heartbreaking watching my aunt go through this, I was amazed with the amount of love and beauty in her room. I felt Gods presence. My aunt always trusting God’s plan and being so positive and loving through this all. 
___
It encouraged Caleb and I with how much love we saw between spouses in my family we witnessed. My uncle taking the vows “in sickness and in health” to a new level. We saw so much love, sacrifice, faithfulness, patience being showed. We saw teamwork and we’re trying to hold onto these lessons we’re learning through family members. 📷 : @twoheartsonelovephoto 
___
It’s reminding me to number my days and not take things for granted. What are the important things in life to you? Tag your person and tell them something you’re thankful for about them in the comments below. 👇🏼

Have you ever felt darkness surrounding you, and you don’t know which way to turn? I had a nightmare: My sister and I were standing on a deserted beach with thick dark fog around us. Hundreds of tall demon looking creatures dressed with black hoods faceless started surrounding us from all sides holding huge knives . I threw up my hands, not in surrender to them, but in praise to Jesus and sung in such a beautiful voice (wayyy prettier than my actual singing voice 😂) 🎶 Hallelujah Jesus Reigns 🎶 with so much peace and joy in my heart and started dancing in circles around the demons until they all dissolved.
___
This dream seems symbolic to my life. I used to always be overcome by fear and OCD. As a kid, I needed to count to 10 a certain amount of times before I would go to bed or I thought something bad would happen. I was so superstitious and that anxiety crippled my mind. 
___
11.5 years ago a friend saw I was struggling with depression and suicidal thoughts and said to me, “Why don’t you try going all in with Jesus? You’ve been half in half out or all out, at different points of your life, but what if you tried to go 💯 in?” And soon after I decided to give my life to Jesus, and God became my best friend. Which completely altered the trajectory of my life. Jesus has brought so much freedom to my mind. Years of being in therapy and helping others being a therapist, inner healing prayer, and daily reading of His word and surrender to Him has brought me SO much more peace, freedom and healing over my thoughts and life. 
___
Before I felt as the darkness was surrounding me, suffocating me. Now, when I lift my hands to Him, God gives me a peace that surpasses understanding. All the problems in my life are NOT fixed, but Jesus gives me the STRENGTH to get through the difficult things in life. The tangible amazing power of Jesus is evident to me everyday. God’s not dead, and He’s more powerful than you or I could ever imagine. I’m reminded today to dance with joy and spin because of God’s love for us!
___
So I’m wondering, have you ever felt like darkness surrounding you, and you don’t know which way to turn? Love hearing from you! And a reminder: You are loved💕

Climb every mountain, Ford every stream, Follow every rainbow, 'Till you find your dream! I feel like I’m in Austria and could see Julie Andrews any minute, although I’m only about an hour away from downtown Los Angeles. This is one of my favorite escapes from where we we live, and Sound of Music is one of my very favorite movies. 
__
Oftentimes with I’m climbing a mountain I will sing this to myself, “Climb every mountain Ford every stream Follow every rainbow 'Till you find your dream!” I guess the words stuck with me because I feel like this is how I’ve lived my life. A dream chaser. Breaking the mold from what I thought I was supposed to do, or what others were doing to go after my dream and God giving calling. I haven’t gone the typical path in life at all, but I’m grateful for Proverbs 3:5-6 my favorite verse. Asking God to lead my path. And He’s lead me to some pretty amazing things, although the climb is difficult, I’m grateful. Where I live, who I married, the career I have- all so much different/better than I could have ever imagined.
__
 I guess I relate to Julie Andrew’s character in that way too. She thought God’s plan for her life was to be a nun. But God knew her heart, and what would bring out her fullest life as she empowered others to live their best life.  I used to be scared to trust God with the plans for my life because I thought it would be boring and dull. But that couldn’t be further from the truth. He has our best life, the way we can be the biggest blessing and so filled with purpose: mapped out for us. Even when it doesn’t make any sense (and I’ve been in that place many times). But He has a way of putting pieces together, the pain/differences in us that seemed so pointless He suddenly seems to make sense of. And it’s never to late to start trusting and climbing the mountain with Him.

Are you going after your God given dream for your life? Love hearing from you!

⚡️ I was terrified the spark would fade. ⚡️
___
This man right here is my favorite human on the planet, and the blessing he is to me everyday astounds me. I can remember 20 years ago, 10 year ago, 6 years ago being terrified of the idea of marriage. I was so scared that over time the person I would marry would love me less or I would love him less. That the ‘spark’ would die and be left with nothing. 
___
People chase the spark, ⚡️ but when arguments and stress come into the relationship, the spark can quickly fade and lead people to search for that spark in other places. I was terrified of this happening with Caleb and I. But after over 5 years of marriage I love him, and he loves me more than ever. Is it because we’re an anomaly? The stress and hardships of life unmoving to us? NOPE! It’s because we both know that love is also a verb. It’s a choice. It’s an attitude. 
___
We’ve come to many crossroads over the last 5 years to choose bitterness, resentment, distance, unforgivienes in our marriage, OR to choose love, peace, forgiveness. God is the most important part in our marriage. He’s held us together when we’ve both been at the end of our rope and had nothing left to give. When the stress of changing jobs, finances, living situations, death of loved ones, disagreements could have torn us apart we choose God. We choose love, forgiveness and learning and growing to become better for each other (even if that means big sacrifices). ___
And we want to keep choosing those things. It’s a very active choice every single day to sacrifice our needs for the sake of each other. To love each other above ourselves. To seek God and make the decision to understand and not let bitterness grow. 📷 : @emily.magers
___
And making these decisions everyday is more than worth it. My heart, understanding, passion, admiration for this man has grown continually.  Do you see love as a verb, an attitude? ❤️How can you choose to become better and not bitter in you most important relationships today? Love hearing from you!👇🏼

Happy Sunday, lovelies! Taking care of myself everyday is something I’m trying to get better at as an entrepreneur. And having self-care time is super important. Taking care of my hair, skin, nails etc. And also my mental health, getting time away from my phone and computer, hiking, spending time reading God’s words. What are some ways that you self-care that help rejuvenate your body/soul?
___
A new self-care routine I’ve loved adding in @ThiqueHairCare #ThiqueHair #sponsered .ad #longhair #longhairstyles I have thin hair naturally and I’m wanting to try to keep my hair healthy. I also never dry my hair, and only use heat on it about once or twice a week. 
___
Not only do I notice my hair getting thicker from good shampoo and taking good care of it, I love the smell and way it makes my scalp feel. It’s sulfate free, paraben free, gluten free, hypoallergenic, vegan, safe for color-treated hair and not tested on animals. It’s made with natural plant extracts and the purest essential oils. THIQUE features an exclusive, anti-aging Amazonian Copaiba Oil Complex that soothes the scalp and builds hair proteins to resist breakage and further hair loss. You should check them out if you are worried about hair loss or wanting thinker hair @ThiqueHairCare.
___
Caleb and I are also planning on going for a hike today, getting great time at church, spending time together and with God, and away from the constant hustle for a moment.

Animals are the best!! Am I right? We absolutely love to see new animals, learn about them, and always hope to find ways that we can interact and engage with them. One of the perfect places to do this is at the @aquariumpacific in Long Beach, CA @visitlb. 
___
The aquarium has always had a special place in our hearts because about three years ago, Caleb took me to the aquarium for a Sea Otter Encounter for my birthday! This was one of my favorite birthday presents because I love sea animals, and the Otters are definitely one of my favorites. After the experience (where I am pretty sure I cried out of happiness) we always said how much we wanted to come back for another encounter or just to explore the aquarium more.
___
Surprise! Upon arriving to Long Beach for our recent trip, we were given a behind the scenes tour of the aquarium where we go to feed fish in the huge water tanks above the aquarium, we got to touch sharks, and even some jellyfish! We had no idea what was about to happen, our guide told us that we were going to meet a special friend at the aquarium on our visit, and that was Charlie the SEA OTTER!!! I was in tears, I couldn’t believe that we were going to get to feed, hold hands, and interact with the sea otters again. 
___
Our trip tot he aquarium was so special, it brought us back to our past experience, while also giving us a special new one that we had together. The staff at the aquarium are so knowledgeable, kind, and informative about how they are helping wildlife in the sea. And the staff member even remembered us from our last sea otter encounter, which blew us away. 
___
We cannot wait to go back to the aquarium soon to visit Charlie again, and to see all of the mazing exhibits that they have to offer. This is truly a special place, and they are making such a great impact on the welfare of our ocean and the wonderful creatures that inhabit it. @LBconventionCTR #MeetinLB #ThisisLB #LBconventionctr

Happy Friday Instagram fam, New Blog Post on one of our favorite places in California, Long Beach! 🏝 One of the greatest thing about @visitLB is their amazing art and street art. We had so much fun touring throughout the city on our stay while we were there, looking at the different art pieces, and it really made the streets come alive! There truly is an explosion of art culture and history that we had no idea existed in this beautiful city. 
___
POW! WOW! Long Beach @powwowlongbeach is a week-long, city-wide event that takes place in the summer throughout Long Beach and is part of the globally recognized POW! WOW! Worldwide series of street art events. The core of our mission is to bring art and culture to public spaces while beautifying the city of Long Beach and cultivating community pride. In the past 3 years, Pow! Wow! Long Beach has executed murals in over 40 square miles throughout the city, from South Street to Ocean Boulevard, creating a walkable, bikeable public art experience unlike anything else in the country. You can find them on the side of a building, under a bridge, in a parking lot, by some stairs, and even on a bus. 
___
The cultural creativity in Long Beach is truly unmatched and is another reason why we were blown away by our experience there. Next year, a trip down to this amazing city for Pow Wow Long Beach is definitely needed. We can’t wait to see what artists have in store for next year!
___
One of our favorite murals was at: 335 Pacific Avenue, Long Beach, CA 90802. The Artist was Tristan Eaton @tristaneaton. This mural was so colorful, providing different shades, giving cultural insights, and truly was a masterpiece of beauty and splendor. You could find a million places to take a picture of this mural because every inch was wonderfully planned, beautifully done, and perfect for any type of image that you would want. We actually can’t wait to come back to this mural for another shoot that we have in mind! @LBconventionCTR #MeetinLB #ThisisLB #LBconventionctr
___
What is your favorite art mural? We love hearing from you! And check out our blog post on Long Beach to see so many more pictures and adventures from our amazing trip!🏝

one of our favorite murals was at: 335 pacific avenue, long beach, ca 90802. the artist was tristan eaton @tristaneaton. this mural was so colorful, providing different shades, giving cultural insights, and truly was a masterpiece of beauty and splendor. you could find a million places to take a picture of this mural because every inch was wonderfully planned, beautifully done, and perfect for any type of image that you would want. we actually can’t wait to come back to this mural for another shoot that we have in mind! @lbconventionctr #meetinlb #thisislb #lbconventionctr ___
what is your favorite art mural? we love hearing from you! and check out our blog post on long beach to see so many more pictures and adventures from our amazing trip!🏝

But on Sunday it was @honeybearrouse 🍯🐻 1st birthday and the three of us got to stroll through pumpkin patches, apple fields and corn mazes with the most beautiful scenery on top of a mountain. We will have another Vlog coming soon about our special day.

”A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.” -Proverbs 17:22. It looks like I was super happy in this picture right? But the truth is, I had to work hard to choose joy this day. I live very far away from my family, and one of my family members got several weeks to live recently. I got to talk to all of my beautiful family on the phone, but my heart was so sad for what they’re going through and longing so much to be with them.  Caleb and I had to switch our date idea, which was good because I was feeling melancholy. Thanks to some reminding from Caleb, I kept trying to choose gratitude and focus on the good, pure, lovely things. Like the misty rain falling on this mountain, time with my husband who keeps me laughing, getting to read devotionals together, all the sweet people on this app, the flowers in my hand, the cute new dress I’m wearing from @shopmoonriver.

Some days choosing joy is easier than others, but focusing on little things I’m grateful for, even in the midst of sorrow really is good medicine.

What’s are some little and big things you’re thankful for on this day specifically? Love hearing from you!
