The BEST Dairy Free Creamer

The BEST Dairy Free Creamer

Have you ever tried searching for a recipe or product by typing “best _______” in Google?  And have you ever been super disappointed to find out that said recipe was, in fact, not the best?  Yeah.  Same.  So, I have literally said outloud on multiple occasions “I hate when people tag their recipe or review with ‘The BEST’”.  No, seriously, I do!  “But why did you do the same with your review, Kelly?” you ask?  FIRST of all, it’s my…

Am I more than just the average of every high and every low?

Am I more than just the average of every high and every low?

“Am I more than just the average of every high and every low?”  More than a ridiculously long blog title, or an offshoot →(for copyright reasons) of a catchy rhyme from Lauren Daigle’s song You Say, this is something I think most – if not all – of us struggle with on a daily basis.  It’s something that’s plagued me for awhile, if I’m being honest, and I’ve never been able to put words to it until this morning while…

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…

Healthy & Refreshing Chicken Salad Sandwich Recipe

Healthy & Refreshing Chicken Salad Sandwich Ideal for Healthy Eating, and Blood Type A Diets Anyone who knows me – or anyone who has even crossed my path in the last several years – might be inclined to call me a Yo-yo dieter.  I’m not sure I’d go that far in my non-existent autobiography, however I have been known to switch up my eating habits now and then.  *ahem* (you can read more about that here).  I’ve recently been reading about…

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…

Why I gave up blogging and came back (again)

Why I gave up blogging and came back (again)

writing feels good. It’s a release of sorts, for my soul, and I think it’s good for me. It’s a way to express myself, and hopefully help others in some small way. Sometimes we have to treat this journey called life like a puzzle, fitting in one small piece at a time, until it comes together.

Nothing New Under The Sun

Nothing New Under The Sun

The truth is, we are never going to be there, we are never going to feel completely satisfied here on earth. If we don’t learn where true contentment comes from, and start enjoying the moment and the journey we are on, we will constantly struggle with that not enough mentality.
