What You Eat is More Valuable than Pushing Play

 
As someone who spend a great deal of working out, this may come as sort of a surprise to you. But I think it needs to be said.

What you put on your plate will ultimately determine whether or not you will succeed in your fitness program of choice.

We see many on social media toting the advice that we need to push harder. Work out more. So more cardio. Lift more weights. Do crossfit. Tabata. HIIT. Fitness, fitness, and more fitness is what we see.

I follow a ton of women on social media who I believe are incredibly healthy and workout, but I am more impressed by one simple fact: they eat to supply their bodies with the best nutrition to perform at it’s most optimal. They view food as a way of sourcing energy to their heart, lungs, muscles, and more. They eat Whole Foods, clean, do their research, and invest in the best quality as much as they can (even if they have a budget!) and their results from that hard work shows. 

Eating well for your body is hard work. A lot more hard work. You have to research, plan out, budget out, and then implement. Eating healthier doesn’t just happen and it doesn’t come from a microwaveable pre-packaged meal.

Nourishing our bodies means we slow down a little bit. We cook a little bit more. No one said you have to be a supreme chef in order to create a delicious and healthy meal. I am not a chef. No where close to it. I probably ruin a lot more dinners than I care to admit. But we need to cook more as a society. We are so ingrained with this idea of fast and easy and convenient. Let’s be the ones who decide to flip that bird on it’s head. 

Let’s change it, shall we? 

Maybe we can’t buy all the healthy things we see and hear about. But we can buy more fruits and veggies than we do chips and other snacks. 

We may not be able to make elaborate meals for dinner every night, but we can take out that instant pot or slow cooker and have something healthy and delicious ready when we are. 

We may not always be able to sit at the dinner table together, but we can make more of an effort to try to and have a meal as a family more often than not. We can say not to busy and stressful schedules and embrace slower speeds and a good home cooked meal. Who said we have to be busy all the time. I am done keeping up with the Joneses. Aren’t you?

But, I am not done sharing with you all that you are worth eating good food. You are worth putting good food in your bodies and in your kids bodies. I know it means a little more effort from you, and I am sorry about that. The last thing you need, fellow mama, is pressure or more work. 

But I do fully believe that us mamas don’t just need to work out. We need nourishment. Just as we need an uplifting word from a good friend regularly, and just as we need daily spiritual nourishment for our souls in God’s word, we need good, clean, wholesome, nutritious foods to nourish our bodies.

Our families, our men, our children, want us around as long as possible. You are worth it.

What We Do While We Wait


“How are you doing, sweetheart?” 

My mother in love has always been a nurturing and compassionate and sensitive woman. She is always the first one to ask how you are doing. And she really cares to know your answer when she asks. 

I told her I was fine. My typical answer when I don’t want to talk about my feelings. I rarely want to talk about them. To be honest, I am much better at writing how I feel and processing everything that way as opposed to having a conversation with someone face to face and having to truly express my emotions. I hate crying. I hate feeling like I am on the verge of tears. 

“Really?,” She said, at first. “Are you really okay?”

Of course, was my reply. 

“You are amazing. I don’t know how you do it and you don’t complain.” She said.

I appreciated her compliment. I needed to hear it. I needed her encouragement.

Truth is, as comforting as her words were to me in that moment, I don’t really believe I am all that amazing. I choose stone face over emotion most of the time. I lack the patience to deal with all that we are dealing with.

What are we dealing with?

The waiting. 

Six month ago, Dan truly believed it was time to start looking for a church he could pastor. Not as a college pastor or a small group pastor, but a teaching pastor. Senior Pastor. This was huge as for so long, Dan didn’t think the door would ever open because he did not finish his education and obtain his M.Div. 

But, encouraged by the leadership at our church, Dan stepped down from his position at our church, and we have been praying and he has been applying.

We thought one church was going to call us to serve them, but it turned out to be a no. That was a heartbreaker. We fell in love with that church. The people. We could see us living in that community. In that State. We were ready.

Yet, God said no.

And to be honest, I was a little angry and frustrated. I was also tired. 

Our church was extremely generous and helped us for a few months, but now the weight is completely on me to provide with my business and on the generosity of friends. So thankful.

God has been so good to us and has provided our every need. We are not rich in things, but we are taken care of. I could name off all the miraculous to you in complete gratitude of His provision. The fact that I am still able to be at home while we lay in wait is a miracle in itself. 

But, I won’t lie and say that I am energized. I am not. I am tired. Tired of the hustle at times. God has also been doing a major work in my heart about what I should be doing and how to minister and love His people. I am also tired because I am desperate for a place we can stay at for a long time. Our whole family is tired of moving every two years. 

Our children are tired. My husband is tired. I know he so wants to be at a church he can serve at and love on and teach and be there for many, many years. We want that. 

We want to be firmly rooted and planted somewhere.

This season has been a long one. And it seems like it happens in cycles of every two years. It is hard. It is tiring. I don’t share this for you to pity me. Military families go through this far more often than we do. Their struggle is real. 

It has been a struggle battling the discontentment I feel often, and trying to seek joy in the things that truly matter: being home with my family. More time with Dan since he is home more. More time with friends. More home cooked meals. Less busy. 

More moments together that I know will become more of a fight to have once Dan finds the church we will serve at. Our family will always be first. We will fight for it, but it will be a struggle. It always is for ministry families. 

I want to complain and cry and scream and tell everyone I know about how I hate the process of pastors applying to churches and how long it takes to get hired.  I have to fight the urge to be dramatic. It comes naturally to me to be resentful and critical. Fighting it and laying down my urges to lash out have to be a daily thing.

And so, in the meantime, I will let God do His job. I will do mine: pray and abide. 

I know God has a place for us somewhere. We feel confident in His calling of us to ministry in the local church. So I will do my best not to stomp my foot in impatience. (This is so hard for me! Ha!) 

“Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever.” Ephesians 3:20-21 ESV 

Whatever my feelings are right now about this whole waiting thing, and about the calling on my husband’s life, I know and believe that God is able to do far more than I could ever ask or think of. 

So when I say we want to be rooted and planted, and to serve the local church, our greatest desire, God can go even beyond that. 

Which is my very hope.

Make the Shift in Your Fitness and Your Life


It takes a single shift in your thinking to jumpstart your health and fitness journey.

It is not easy! I totally get that! So many of us are hearing that it is so hard to get in shape.

Do you have any of these reasons?

*I have no time to workout.

*I have no time to make healthy meals.

*I don’t have the money.

*It costs too much to eat healthy.

*My kids are too young and I have no one to watch them so I can workout.

*I need someone to be with me to workout.

*I am going on vacation, school is starting, Christmas break, this holiday is coming up (you get the picture?)

We have a lot of reasons for NOT making the Shift and starting. They may seem very valid, but, those reasons are not there to help you.

They deter you. You have now allowed those reasons to control your choices. They make the decisions for your health. Not you.

But not anymore. Not this time.

It is time to Make the Shift from your excuses and Take Charge of your own health!


*Beginning July 24th, my Make The Shift fitness and nutrition group begins and it will be 3 weeks of workouts that build in length and intensity. 

*A nutrition guide so you know what to eat and how to truly nourish your body from the inside out with foods that make you feel good. No more diet mentality. Eat Real Food and Feel Good.

*Simplified Nutrition and Superfoods (AKA Momma Fuel) to help give you daily wins in your nutrition.

*Daily support from me as your friend and coach to help you reach your goals and help you Make The Shift to truly transform your life and your health. There is nothing special about the first. Start today.

*I will be doing it with you! You won’t be on your own in this journey. You can bet that I will be sweating it out and nourishing my body as well, and sharing all of my FAVORITE recipes with you. You deserve it!!! 

I am only taking 10 women who truly want to lose anywhere from 10-15 pounds and are willing to give it their all because they believe in themselves. Be sure to email me with “Make The Shift” in the subject line. 

 Need help with your belief?

That is what I am here for!

Are you ready? 

Yes. You. Are.

Be a Size You,

P.S. I can only work with those who do not already have a coach and is not currently a coach. You must also reside in the US, Puerto Rico or Canada. Thank you for understanding! 

If You Could Be or Do Anything….


Last night, the Harper’s hung out at Angel Stadium for the annual Freeway series and it was awesome! 

Sean is a HUGE Dodger fan and Madi is an Angel fan. We are a house divided folks! But don’t worry. We don’t take our rivalries too seriously. It is all in good fun. 


It was so incredible to be around so much blue and red! It was packed! There was so much noise and shouting for our teams. I asked Sean if he could do or be anything growing up, what would it be.

His answer was to play professional baseball. With the Dodgers. 

Sean lives and breathes baseball. He loves it. It makes him sad when the season is over, whether for the major leagues or for little league. He wakes up thinking about it. He plays all the time. He works on his skills. He asks his dad to go to the park so they can practice. He wants to fulfill that dream so bad! It is awesome to watch. 

It got me thinking about my own dreams. And yours! 

Actually, to be fair I didn’t really think about all that until this morning. Because last night I was too busy bragging about the Angel’s crazy win!


*Don’t mind the photobomber. I have no idea who he is. Sorry dude.*

If you could do or be anything, what would it be. What are your gifts? What do you want to share?

God has been doing a major work in my heart lately about my dreams. If I could do anything, I literally would just write and share all the time. 

I want God to teach me so much. To constantly be showing me new things about Himself and helping me grow in Him, and then I want to go and write it out. I want to inspire and move women toward Jesus. 

I get tired of the hustle, too. This feeling of constantly performing. It has been a major conviction in my life recently. Not because I have been dishonest, but because I am always trying to prove what I am doing. I need to remember that I don’t have to prove myself to anyone. God has already defined who I am. He has already crafted me for good work. I am not defined by the workouts I post. By how often I eat clean. My what I wear. None of that.

He has done it all. He is enough.

So it really excites me with all that He is doing in my heart. That heavy weight of perfection and striving is slowly being lifted. It feels good.

And it feels good to dream too.

So, what would you want to do? What drives you? What gets you excited? What steps will you take to make it happen?

How to Eat Healthy & Not Lose Your Mind

Healthy eating. Anybody else seem so confused and frustrated by all the different ways to eat out there? 

I was for so long. Holy moly. It couldn’t be that complicated, right?

Actually, it was. 

Here is the thing. I was constantly buying the idea that I had to sweat for many hours and eat way less in order to get the results I wanted. If I wanted to be shredded, than LESS calories was the goal.

And I did. I consumed less calories and worked out a ton to eliminate a lot more.

Big problem arose as I noticed I was tired more, not energized, even though I was working so hard.

Turns out, the right calories and nutrients matter. It is not necessarily just a matter of eating less and working out more.

Now, I eat three, nutrient dense meals a day and my workouts are only about 30 minutes max. I have not spent more than 45 minutes in a workout in 5 years. 

I don’t really calorie count. I do pay attention to portion sizes (because let’s be real. This girl loves chips and salsa and avocados and cheese and potatoes.) 

But I do pay attention to the kinds of foods I choose. I have a burger or something more rich when I feel like it. I still drink my coffee with creamer. But 90% of the time, my nutrition is good.

And yours can be too.

When I grocery shop, I spend very little time in the middle of the grocery store, unless I am needing to stock up on gluten free flours or other pantry items. I spend a great deal of time in the produce section AND the meat/deli section. 

That is one way to truly cut costs in your grocery bill. One of my meals consist of Shakeology, and I buy that as a 30 day supply  on autoship so it doesn’t add more expense to my grocery budget. 

My main items that I buy are:

*seasonal veggies and fruit

*grassfed beef

*organic free range chicken

*sustainble sourced fish

*healthy fats, cheese, almond milk

And whatever else I want for the week.

I made a video on my YouTube channel sharing my grocery haul from this past Sunday. Everything that I spent cost me a total of $93. Those items will last me for a week for a family of four. 

Another thing. I don’t really buy snack foods. My husband does. He loves his popcorn and candy. I don’t personally buy it. I will make Shakeology balls (recipe coming this week) and other treats that we can have as a family if we are wanting something sweet. But buying the extra snacks add to our budget. My kids do enjoy Larabars and the Cliff ZKids bars, but I try to make my own if I can. I want to keep it as simple as possible and I want to have my kids eat more fruit and veggies and it is hard for them to do that if I keep distracting them with other options. 

5/22 Grocery Haul

Planning for meals doesn’t have to be super hard, either. You have to do a little research and some trial and error on what works best for your family. You don’t have to be Paleo this, or Vegan that in order to be healthy. Train your brain to think “just choose more Whole Foods” and you will notice a difference in how you and your family feel. 

Don’t try to make fancy healthy dinners all the time. Maybe once in awhile you can. But keep it simple, girlfriend. Chances are, you are like me and super busy. Who the heck has time to cook for hours?! I don’t! Instead of stressing yourself out and feeling defeated, find several easy meals you can put regularly on rotation and go from there! You can do this, mama! 

Stay tuned for a Shakeology recipe that isn’t a shake! 🙌🏻 

You can do this. If you commit to 30 days of shopping differently without any agendas, and really buying whole food, you will find it is easier (and cheaper!) than you realized. But you have to try. 

Be a Size You,

The Right Tools 


I am a firm believer in having the right tools on hand whenever you begin a new business, goal, job, even fitness routine. To me, having the necessities makes a big difference than just trying to wing it.

I don’t think you need to have EVERYTHING, but I do think that there are some things that are non negotiable when it comes to your fitness and health.

My kids play sports. Baseball and swim, respectively. 

For Sean, he needs a helmet, a glove, a bat, a cup, cleats, a bucket of balls and a tee to hit off of in between games and practices. He doesn’t NEED a fancy membership to the batting cages, but we do invest in that as well to help him. Getting him to the tools necessary to play means we had to invest. It didn’t come free. But, because we want him to grow as a player and practice and learn, making sure he had the right tools was important.

For Madi, her swim club requires fins, a few practice swimsuits, kickboard, meet swimsuit and swim cap, several goggles and practice swimcaps. Again, we make sure she has what she needs to set her up for success. It requires investment on our part. Madi having the right equipment means she is able to practice efficiently and grow. It doesn’t mean she will be the best swimmer. But it does mean she is prepared for success.

For those of you with kids who play sports….do you just expect your kids to wing it or play their sport without the right tools?

No, right?!

So why do you think you can wing it with your health and fitness goals without the right tools to set you up to succeed? Because it will cost you money?! Of course it will! 

But I promise, it will cost less than what you pay for your kid’s sport gear (I promise!!!!)

You want to set yourself up for success in your health and fitness journey? Here is what you will need:

1. A fitness program with a calendar you can easily follow along with. All the workouts are created for you. You don’t have to spend anytime figuring out yourself (unless you like having a whole bunch of options to choose from, then I recommend BOD) and all you have to do is push play. Follow the calendar! That’s it! Success number 1!

2. A nutrition guide that is included WITH your fitness program. Yes. You can know exactly what to eat. Each program has a nutrition guide that was specifically created with that program. To be real with you, in the beginning, I followed those nutrition guides to a T. They helped me a lot. Now, several years into my journey, I know what foods work best for my body and what helps me get results. But those of you who are just starting, give yourself another win and follow the nutrition guide. Stop saying it is not realistic. YES IT IS. 

3. Shakeology. Yes. I said it. It is necessary. You want to know the biggest reason I hear from fellow moms about why they can’t eat healthier or meal plan? Because they lack time to cook. I understand. So give yourself win #3, and drink Shakeology one meal a day to help fill in the gaps (even when you are eating healthy), fuel your body with nutrients designed to give you optimal nutrition, is clinically proven to help you lose weight, maintain healthy blood sugar levels, give you more energy without those crazy energy drinks or fat burners. Quit calling it a protein shake. It is not a protein shake. It is optimal nutrition. 

4. Get in a community of people who are doing this with you so you won’t be alone. Fitness is more fun when we do it together, let’s be honest. And guess what, after you have the right tools, groups like mine and others are FREE! Yay! In these groups, you make new friendships, discover new foods and recipes to the. We celebrate our victories, both scale and non-scale and so much more. The fit life is fun once we get over the initial hurdle. We just feel so much better and we want everyone to do this with us. 

5. Have a coach like me in your corner. I have been doing this for seven years, six years as a coach. I have been where you have been. I have had similar struggles. My kids were 4 and 1 when I began. I hardly had any time. Sanity was a dream. I just wanted to have energy and feel normal and not look like I was still pregnant. Cooking healthy meals? Had no clue at first what that looked like. We had no money. How was I going to afford an investment like that. It seemed so selfish at first. But I was willing to take a chance on myself. I am so glad I did. 

I feel better at 35 than I did at 25. 

Now, it is your turn. Trust me when I say that all that I have listed above will cost you LESS than what you have had to pay for your kids sports and activities. 

Get the right tools. They matter. Set yourself up for success and don’t wing it. 

Be a Size You,

An Ode to Mamas

I got up early this morning. My house is a mess, but I don’t care at the moment. I am literally sitting here looking over photos of my kids and of my Mama.

And now, Sean is up and has decided to snuggle up next to me on this very small leather chair. My day has officially begun.

Yes, on Mother’s Day, we Mamas still show up and do our jobs of nurturing and loving our people. I don’t want a day off from that. (But I will take a day off from laundry, or maybe even cooking!) 


I remember after Dan and I got married twelve years ago that we had decided on the five year plan before beginning our family. We didn’t feel ready to take on tiny people. Y’all, I could not cook to save my life. Or do laundry. Or clean all that well. How in the world was I going to take care of babies when I was struggling to keep my husband alive? (Sorry, babe!)

However, God saw fit to give us Madi in 2006 and then Sean in 2009. 


Being a young mom, at least in today’s climate, it was a struggle. It was hard to grow up and sacrifice a lot of yourself for human beings who needed so much from you. It was both exciting and extremely exhausting. I remember moments of just wanting to hide in the shower by myself for 10 minutes, just to feel clean and to have a good cry. My husband was so good about giving me the emotional space to do that. 

I also remember moments when I would leave for work and tell myself that I would find a way to get home and stay home so that I could be with them. I didn’t want to miss a single milestone. We sacrificed a lot to have me quit my job to stay home. So many didn’t agree with it. But I know WE did the right thing for our family. We have no regrets in that. 

My parents made the same decision when I was born. My mama was working when she became pregnant with me. After she had me, she decided she didn’t want to go back to work. And my dad agreed. It was hard. And several weeks later, they would be expecting my sister Sheena! Ha! Sheena and I are 10 1/2 months apart. You can do the math! 

I don’t think they regret it all. They have never said to us, “I wish I would have worked when I had you.” But my mom wanted to be with us.

I wanted to follow in the example my mom set.

Now, this isn’t a post about how stay at home moms are better. They aren’t. Working mamas get it done and they do what they need to in order to provide for their families. Because they love their kids fiercely as well. 

But this is our story. This is what we chose. And on this Mother’s Day, I am thankful that even through the struggles to pay bills and a lot of the time living paycheck to paycheck, my kids still call me momma and they have awesome memories. We get to play and we get to learn and we get to grow together.


We are in a new stage of parenting. Our kids are older now, and they are beginning to show some independence. They enjoy baseball, swimming, talking with their friends, riding on bikes and scooters, Madi enjoys shopping with me and reading 700 page books. Sean is all about Wimpy Kid and Captain Underpants. Very different from those days of naps and diapers. It makes me a little weepy, actually.

I wonder if that was how my mom felt, watching us grow up and become individuals. The bed time snuggles and Disney movie watching and summertime family beach trips occurred less and less as we got older. I am sure that made my mom’s heart ache just a bit. You forget about the rough patches and you cling to the good. 

So, to my fellow Mama’s, Happy Mother’s Day. You may not get a ton of presents or a day at the spa, but you are cherished. You have people who call you mama. Enjoy today. 

For my precious friends who are grieving today, either due to loss, or empty arms and wombs, you are not forgotten either. I wish I could hug you in person, but here is my virtual heart for you. Praying for you today. 

To my own mother, Happy Mother’s Day. Thank you for your sacrifice, for teaching me to be strong, to be myself, to stand up to injustice or wrong doing, to fight for the people you love. I love you.

Be a Size You,

Week 1 of Whole 30

I finished week one and I am so excited to share with y’all how everything has gone!
Let me start by saying that Whole 30 is hard, but not as hard as I thought it would be. Mainly because a lot of the foods that are allowed in Whole 30, we already consume. The hardest part for me, I think, has been to adjust to eating more food than I am accustomed to and so that I don’t want to snack. I found that if I am craving snacks every two hours, then I must not be consuming enough at my meals. It has been a learning curve for me, but I have really been enjoying eating this way so far. And so has Dan! 
First, let me share with you a small transformation I have noticed in my body:

I definitely feel tighter and not as fluffy. I have always struggled with the back rolls and I could not figure out how to develop back there. (Picture on the right is from a few months ago). I was working out regularly and drinking Shakeology, and eating clean, but I must have been starving my muscles of adequate protein because I definitely feel tighter in my abdomen and back areas. It goes to show how much your nutrition plays a part in this. I don’t need to lose weight, BUT I would like to build more lean muscle, so this is very exciting for me!
Do I have any favorite recipes? You bet!
We made Big O Bacon burgers. No bread, but we sautéed some kale and I made some home fries. They were really good. I got the recipe from Nom Nom Paleo
I also LOVED Simple Egg Drop Soup.

Fast and easy. Whipped it up in 5 minutes! When it is rainy or you are feeling under the weather, make yourself some of this! Also from Nom Nom Paleo. 
I will share a couple more awesome Whole 30 approved recipes mid week.
I am also still drinking Shakeology and doing 22 Minute Hard Corps (which is a bootcamp style workout from Beachbody). 


​​
I am feeling pretty good so far and I can’t wait to see what the next three weeks will bring!

Are you in Transition? 

Are You In a Season of Transition? 
When I look at water, I know just enough science to know that it is never constantly in the same state. 
In seasons, it goes through changes. 
It can change to a solid, gas, or liquid. 
It can come down as rain, or evaporate when temperatures rise. 
It is constantly in a state of transition. 
What about you? Is your heart in a state of change? Maybe you are experiencing loss, a move, a career change, a new baby.
Transitions will always come. They come in many forms and while we can’t predict what transitions we will face, we can expect to face them. 
You know who won’t change though? God’s word. His promises. His love for you. 
“The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever.” Isaiah 40:8
When you are feeling the weight of change and you are unsure if you can bear it alone, you are right, you cannot. But with God, you can claim dependence on Him to provide and meet you where you are at. 
“Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love Him.” James 1:12
Why worry about what your tomorrow will bring. What this new change will do to you. I have a tendency to worry and stress and take matters into my own hands. Especially when I am going through uncomfortable change. I am a take charge gal. When change goes my way, I am much easier to deal with. 
But hard change. Necessary change. Change I didn’t want or ask for….that is hard. Trust can be hard. But God’s word is clear in this:
“Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?” Matthew 6:25
“But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things will be added to you.” Matthew 6:33
Or the very first verse I kept in my heart as a new follower of Jesus sixteen years ago:
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart.
Lean not on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He will make straight your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6
Wherever you are today, sister friend, know that He cares for you. He sees you. He will meet your needs, the ones you may not even realize you need. Trust in Him if you are in transition.
If you are not experiencing change, trust that you will eventually, and still have faith.

Abundance in 2017

*photo from She Works His Way app*
I’ll be honest. The first word that came to mind for the year wasn’t Abundance.

It was rich.

I loved the idea of being rich in hope. Rich in faith. Rich in grace. Having a wealth of knowledge so that I could walk out my calling as a wife, momma, bible studying and sharing woman.

It was the verse in 2 Corinthians 8:9 that said,

“Though he was rich, Yet for your sake He became poor, so that you by His poverty might become rich.”
This verse isn’t talking about wealth in goods. But in Him. We have been entrusted with the gift of the gospel. We are also entrusted with the gifting of it. We must be willing to tell people about Jesus.

Hence, my husband said “Why not the word Abundance.”

Yes, Abundance.

Have an overflow of the good. Of the truth. So much so that it spills out of you. 

Because when you have an abundance, the next thing that should be done is to share that Abundance with others. 

I want an abundance of love, grace, hope, joy, truth, faith, trust, and His power. So much so that it will bubble inside of me and I have no choice to but to let it spill out and share it with those who are lacking. 

I want women all over to read His word. To be captivated by it and long to read more every day. My passion is in those pages. My passion is in the learning. When I don’t learn, I start to wilt.

Having an abundance of Scripture stored in my heart will keep me from wilting, even through the toughest of circumstances. 


And what of my family? Where do they fit? 

Dan and I desire more time with the four of us.

More fun. More adventure. More moments of love, and grace, and enjoying each other’s company. One thing I am certain of, this little family of mine is a gift. A precious gift.


Abundance in 2017.

I am so looking forward to all that God will show us in the New Year.

Happy New Year, friends. 

Be a Size You,
