A Baby Journal You Will Actually Use!

So be honest with me…

How many of you were actually good about putting things in your children’s “Baby Books”?

My eldest daughter Aidalyn found her baby book when were going through some things in her room, and she guilted me pretty hard on not having much of anything in it! Total #MomWin right there 

I love the idea of using a Baby book to remember things that I KNOW I’ll end up forgetting, but a written book just wasn’t cutting it for me. read more

My Favorite Things for 2017

2017 is almost over! So it is a great time to reflect and think about all the good that has come into your life over the past 365 days…

Today, I’m sharing a few of my favorite finds from this past year and I would love to hear what you have enjoyed too!

1. Zevia Cola

I have probably been drinking these longer than just this past year, but I stopped drinking them for a while because I had trouble finding them. Now, they are on my Amazon Subscribe and Save so I get them delivered to my door each month! I really like the cola flavor in non caffeine and caffeine – but there are so many flavors I know you can find one you love! The best part is that it will help you break your addiction to cola. read more

Favorite Fall Essential Oil Blends

Fall is my FAVORITE season…


I love getting to pull out my boots… my sweaters… my favorite coffee mugs…

and I love the scents that fall brings!

But one thing I learned was that burning scented candles not only wasn’t safe with little kids around… it also wasn’t HEALTHY! 

Just think all those chemicals and artificial scents that you are burning are going into the AIR and you are breathing them in… without even knowing.

So what is the answer?  read more

If You Aren’t Drinking Keto Coffee Yet, It May Be Because…

Everything you wanted to know about keto coffee
Everything you wanted to know about keto coffee

I have been singing the praises of grassfed butter and coconut oil for years!! And if you know me at all… you know I hold a special place in my heart for coffee, haha.

So when I heard about an amazing coffee that you can drink for breakfast that gives you fuel (from grassfed butter and coconut oil) and helps you focus better too, I had to try it!


What is Keto Coffee

So what is keto coffee? You may have heard it called bullet-proof coffee, butter coffee, fatty coffee. But the basic ingredients are always the same. It is a combination of butter, coconut oil OR MCT oil and coffee. The best version of Bulletproof coffee is 2 parts butter to 1 part MCT oil. read more

When your Enemies are Yelling, God is Whispering

I have been reading through Crash the Chatterbox by Steven Furtick – It is all about hearing God’s voice above all others.

I think that it is such a powerful message to understand… because so often the thoughts in our head are not voices we need to listen to.


This is the second video of our “Video Book Club” where I cover the second section of the book: All about Fear!


Watch the video now:


I loved reading through the story of Elijah – a famous prophet in the Old Testament.

He had just called fire down from heaven… but just after that his enemy (Jezebel) sent out a message that she was going to have Elijah killed.


Out of fear – Elijah runs in the opposite direction from where he was called to be…

He let fear get in the way of hearing God’s voice.


Elijah runs to the mountains and is found hiding in a cave.


God calls Elijah out of the cave…

Then there is a great wind, earthquake, and fire… but the Lord wasn’t in any of those…


God spoke in a whisper. 


Why did God use a whisper to speak to Elijah??


We don’t really know… but think about how close God had to be to use a whisper.


God is Close. 


Your enemies are yelling and being loud because they are far away!! But God can speak to you in a whisper because He is right next to you.


He never left you. 


“If God is for us, Who can be against us?” Romans 8:31


When you are facing fears in your life… remember that your God is so close He can whisper and His promises are always the same.



I hope that this encouraged you today! If it did, share with a friend!

Rise up with what is in Your Hands

This is our final post in this series “Rise Up!” I hope you have enjoyed these messages over this week and have been challenged to look around at the opportunities in your life where you can increase your influence or impact.


For this final video I share, Rise Up with what is in your hands.

Our story comes from Judges 4:17-24 where we meet a woman named Jael.


We don’t know much about her except that she was supposed to be on the side against the Israelites, but when the opportunity came she actually helped the Isrealites become free.


Watch my video: Rise up with what is in your hands

Where are some areas in your life you can Rise Up with the skills you already have?

Rise up for Others

This past Sunday, I heard a message about Rising Up and in my heart I just knew that so many of us were feeling comfortable and needing to Rise up where we are.

Yesterday, I shared the first video Rising to the Opportunity and today I’m sharing the second part: We Rise for Others.

I love how this message relates to a book I’m currently reading called Chase the Lion and teaching why we should Dream Big. I hope that this inspires you to Dream Bigger because your dream may inspire others to dream too. read more

Rise up to the Opportunity

Yesterday at church, a message was shared about Rising Up… and it got me thinking about all the opportunities in our lives that God has called us to stretch ourselves so that His mission can be completed.

In my video, I talk about our personal seasons where God has called us from being comfortable to uncomfortable. I’ve learned that God calls us to go, move, rise… He doesn’t want us to settle.

I feel like all of us are called to do something that can make an impact. He gives us opportunities where we can have more influence over the people around us for good! read more

Turn Your Mess into your Message

The more I learn about successful people is that most of them have a lot of mess in their life… they had a lot that they had to overcome to get to the place where they are now.

It is interesting how some of them were able to use the mess in their life to create their message which led to their mission.

What if the same thing is happening to us? 

Are we going through a mess right now so that we can give hope to someone in the future? Or is this developing our message so that we can develop our mission? Watch my video below to hear more of my thoughts on this: read more
