Often times in life when hard times come or things happen that seem so hard to understand I wonder how people get through them without faith. I am so thankful to have a relationship with Jesus and for my faith in Him. I would not say I am a religious person. I am a person full of flaws and yet I am loved by the Creator of the universe. I don’t do religion I do relationships and I am blown away daily at the reminder that He loves me and accepts me just as I am. I am so thankful that I don’t have to walk this journey on earth alone. Life is hard, sometimes things happen and it feels almost unbearable to go on and yet when I remind myself that this is not my final home, I some how find the strength to go on because this isn’t the end for me. Jesus has been so good to me and has blessed me beyond measure but that doesn’t mean my life has been easy because it certainly hasn’t. He has been teaching me to praise Him even in the hard times. The hard times are just an opportunity for me to lean on Him and what a gift that has been to be able to do that.

I also am blessed with an incredible church and church family. A pastor and staff that love Jesus and want to love others because of what Jesus has done for them. A church where the Word is spoken and lives are changed because of it. A church that invests into the next generation and has a heart to serve our community and others.  If you are local and are looking for a great church, I would love to have you join me on Sunday at mine.

I don’t know where I would be without my faith but I know it wouldn’t be a good place.  I don’t know what the rest of my life holds or what it will look like but I don’t have to know or worry about it because I know no matter what happens I can overcome it all with His help and strength. He has my life mapped out and He has promised to work all things out for good to those that love Him. He promises hope and a future. I just take each day with a thankful heart and praise Him in all circumstances.

I am so thankful that my sweet grandma had her faith in Jesus as well. 6 years ago today cancer sucked the life out of my grandma here on earth and as heartbreaking and sad as I was (am) I know she is in a far better place. She is pain free dancing with Jesus and I couldn’t wish her back from that. It is not goodbye because I know one day I will see her again and I pray my babies will get to finally meet her. If you follow me on Instagram you will have seen I posted this special picture I took of my babies this past weekend with my grandmas head stone. I tell my babies about my brave, sweet grandma and oh how I wish she could have met them. One of the last days my grandma was living she told me in her frail, fragile state that she wanted me to have a baby and that she knew it would be a boy. As I look at my sweet baby boy in this picture it brings tears to my eyes to think that exactly 5 years, 1 month and 2 days later my baby boy would arrive. See with Jesus beauty comes from ashes.

  • You my girl are going to do great things - you already are! This girl never ceases to amaze me and make me proud to be her mama! Her teacher asked to speak to us yesterday - we had no idea why -  her teacher started to share with us  about how kind Gray is and how proud she is of Gray. There is a student in their class that has special needs and Gray has taken such good care of of this little boy since the beginning of the year - she plays with him at recess and make sure he is always included. Her teacher was so impressed by how kind and loving Gray is and of course I wasn’t surprised but The tears did fall as I looked at my girl beaming with  pride. You see this sweet girl has an ability to see people for who they are on the inside. She has been talking about this little boy for the past month and a half when she shares about her day and I had no idea he had special needs or that he was any different than she was cause she doesn’t see him that way she sees him as an equal. How different this world would be if we all treated each other as equal and shared love and kindness with each other!
  • Mirror, mirror on the wall...
It doesn’t matter if I’m short or tall...
If I have skinny legs or my hips are wide...
It only matters who I am inside...
Blue eyes, brown eyes, black or green...
What makes me most beautiful can not be seen...
When you look at me, don’t judge me by my parts...
The most beautiful about me is my heart  #myhomesense
  • Happy Thanksgiving! I hope however you’ve celebrated whether today or this weekend you spent it verbalizing to the ones you love how thankful you are for them! It would be silly of me to try and tag the ones I’m thankful for but I truly feel blessed and I hope those of you know who you are!
  • Fear: feeling induced by perceived danger, a response to a specific stimulus occurring in the present, or in anticipation or expectation of a future. Fear of heartbreak? Fear of the diagnosis? Fear of abandonment? Fear of judgment? Fear of peoples perception of you? Fear of your bank account number? Fear is everywhere and I for one struggle with it! I find music to be a powerful tool in my life and these lyrics have been repeatedly playing over in my head this past week- I wake up singing them I sing them all day long and yet they aren’t just lyrics they are a declaration of truth that I am holding onto “There is no fear and no shame
Your love won't rise above
Every failure sealed within Your grave
For love has overcome”
  • Canadian Thanksgiving is days away and as much as this dreary rain would love to drag me down I can’t help but feel so grateful for so many things in my life! I have started keeping a running list of things throughout my day that I am thankful for like not just the obvious big things but the little ones too like a hot cup of coffee and a warm fuzzy blanket - do you know what that does for my thought process when I focus on all I do have to be thankful for!! What are you thankful for today?
