Write what’s on your heart | Blogging in today’s world

Write what’s on your heart | Blogging in today’s world

I’ve had it on my heart to write for awhile now, and what I most enjoy writing about is whatever is on my heart, specifically in that moment.  I’ve attempted to write about whatever is blowing around in the wind on a given day, maybe a popular trend or an information piece, but I’ve found that I mostly come up dry and unsatisfied.  My work is never as fruitful, and the end product isn’t nearly as satiating.  Most articles and books…

Overcoming unhealthy mentalities

Overcoming unhealthy mentalities

Paradigm Change Over the past few years, I’ve come to the conclusion (slowly) that when it comes to my diet choices I change my mind like my 7 year old daughter changes outfits. I can be swayed as easily as a boat in a hurricane from a simple Netflix documentary, a convincing Pinterest graphic or the latest diet fad synopsis from a friend. All of this, in an effort to seek health, has left me feeling anything but healthy. This…

Is It Possible to Live Humble and Dream Big?

Is It Possible to Live Humble and Dream Big?

A conflict of interest it would seem, to live a humble life yet have big dreams/goals. From a biblical standpoint, we are to be humble servants, emulating Christ and being very modest about our own esteem.  From a worldly standpoint, we should be proud of our accomplishments, after all we did it, right?  So how do we live this dignified and quiet life, pleasing to the Lord yet chase after our aspirations and accomplish something bigger than ourselves – especially…

My Ectopic Pregnancy Story

My Ectopic Pregnancy Story

* This post contains images that some might find graphic/disturbing. Out of all of the blog post ideas I have jotted down in my Notes, I never fathomed that this was a post I’d be authoring.  In fact, having 3 healthy full-term births in the past gave me confidence that such a thing could never happen to me.  I’m over here thinking I’m fertile myrtle, all my husband has to do is wink at me and BOOM 9 months later we have…
