I've been thinking a lot about anxiety lately. To be honest, I think maybe anxiety kept me from writing a post on the actual TOPIC of anxiety. Thoughts of, "What if I am not enough" or "They are going to hate it" flood my brain from time to time. I think a lot of us can relate to that feeling. I mean we do live in a culture of comparison. A culture that spends hours on hours scrolling, tapping, hiding behind screens. We lash out at people we don't even know all because of something we are fighting inside ourselves. It's as if we forget that we are all human. All of us craving connection, wanting to feel something, wanting to feel anything. So we lash out, we get frustrated, we become people we don't even recognize. All because anxi...

This year Nick and I have been really diving into books speaking on how intentional God is with us. We were in Barnes & Noble a little while back and I noticed a book titled 'Love That Lasts' and I flipped through it to kind of get a vibe for what is was about. I was already hooked while standing in line to purchase it, but not for the reasons you would think. At first glance, I thought it would be about how to make your marriage last and become stronger through The Lord and all that jazz. Now, YES, it does have a lot of awesome insight about how to grow your marriage with God at the foundation, but there is a lot more to it than that.

It has goodness and truth that I needed when I was in high school and college. It has truths that...

This year I made a promise to myself that I would be more adamant about printing out photos. There is just something to be said about holding a memory in your hands. Freezing moments in time by the click of a button is so amazing to me. How cool is it that we live in a time where we can capture vivid colors, actions, and motions. I am so grateful that my children will be able to look back on prints one day and see their childhood live and in color. The fun they had, the tears they shed, the moments spent on the playground or smashing cake with their little hands at birthday parties. 

I started a wall sharing all the moments I am grateful for. The messy, the wild, the raw, the real moments that make up my family and our community. We...

When I first started writing this out, I had intentions of only sharing a portion of my heart. Little did I know that the more I prayed on the subject, the more I felt an intense pull to share more, dig deeper,  and beam truth to you. So here it goes- week one of five. Sharing my truth and lessons I've learned along the way in hopes of rallying around each other, trying harder, supporting one another, and showing up when it's not easy or convenient. 

So, sweet friend, I want to ask you a question.

Why are you here? 

Are you reading this because you want to know how to be a better friend? Orrrrrr are you here because you don't feel like you are being served in your friendship? Orrrrrrr is it possible you were just curiou...

You know how everyone says that you learn the most about yourself in your twenties? I figured since everyone else was saying it, it had to be true. So when I turned twenty, I was ready to have this epiphany where I became this incredible woman with strength and purpose. Yet, twenty came, it went, and I didn't feel any change. Thinking back on that now, I feel silly. My purpose was always there, I was just blindfolded to it. I would have these moments of clarity where I would think, "Oh surely this is what I was meant to do!" Then a few months later, I would feel lost once again and the self doubt would creep in. The voice of self doubt told me I wasn't enough, told me I couldn't do anything, and that I definitely couldn't make a di...

To you, my sweet son,

I remember when we found out we were having you. Our first baby, a boy! My heart was nervously pounding because not only was I anxious, but because for the first time you had an identity. All of a sudden we were researching boy names and trying to picture you taking your first steps. Even though you would still be inside me for several months to come, we were ready for our son. We were ready to start our lives with you. The days ahead were filled with excitement, fear, and worry that we wouldn't be enough, that we wouldn't know what to do. Little did I know that when you came bursting into the world and you were placed in my arms for the first time, everything else just perfectly aligned. 

Those first days were...
