HAPPY SUNDAY friends!!💐Pretty flowers everywhere and so tempted to buy them all 😍 Im actually waiting till Valentines month is over so they’ll stop being so horribly expensive am I right? 🙈 I love all the white, purple and yellow roses, ranunculus, and white tulips and baby’s breath of course. What are your favorite flowers?!

I’ve been thinking a lot about prayer lately. I noticed that every time I have to pray continuously, it’s because I’m not trusting God in something. When I do trust Him, I can say a quick little prayer, and it leaves my mind.
Maybe prayer is more for us than it is for Him?
👇🏽What do you think?👇🏽

A year ago today I was one week postpartum, a fresh new mommy. I never would have imagined that a year later I would be leaving the comfort of my home and my little baby to go serve young people in Nepal who have had their innocence stripped away.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’m sad to leave but excited for what lays ahead. I’m going to love, serve and shine Gods amazing light but I know that the beautiful people I will meet will have a bigger and lasting impact on my life than I will probably have on theirs.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I hope and pray to see them through Gods eyes and perspective and love them the way His heart does, full of a love that knows no boundaries.

Thank you to every single friend, family member and stranger that has donated, attended fundraisers, prayed for and taken the time to become aware of the reality of human trafficking. We are all part of the solution.

It’s been amazing to see how differently we’re all using ”Above All” this Lent. Some of us fill in each box and write everyday, some prefer to just sit in quiet time with God after reading the Scripture passages and essay, and some pray through drawing and illustrations. Thank God for our differences, and may we all remember that there is no “right” way to do this. Ultimately, it is the time spent with God that matters above all, no matter how that looks.

We love what @lilflowermomma says: “My prayer journal has coffee stains. (Seriously, an entire cup of coffee has been spilled on it.). My devotional has been chewed at the corners and thrown across rooms in retaliation for a misfired Nerf bullet. My prayer time is a stolen moment by a momma-ninja tip-toeing to make coffee before they want breakfast. I get asked almost daily "how do you do it". I don't. He does.” Amen!! 💗

Thank you to so many of you for your vulnerability and openness in sharing peeks at the inside of your journals, and thank you to the following women for these additional photos: @mommylawyer6, @seekingwoman, @paula_m_davis, @stonesandbeams, @cajuntexasmom, @greenmountainhomeschoolmom, @mylittlefeltfriends, @thelittlestway, and @elyy.carreon.

Tag us with #takeupandread and #aboveall in your posts, friends, and we’ll share more reflections and photos from our community next weekend!! 💜💛

Using the simile in Psalm 1:3, a tree 🌳 that’s thriving (that’s us) is a spiritually healthy heart. ❤️ I had so much fun researching more about trees. 🤓Much more fun than school! 😂
In this post, I talk about four causes of a spiritually unhealthy heart, symptoms of an injured heart 💔, attributes of a well heart & why we need a spiritually healthy heart.💖 Link is temporarily in profile. ✅

A Sunday afternoon without any commitments is a special treat around here, so Little Rascals with oreos and then our first family board game to slow down a bit. 💕And don't worry, when Alfalfa and Darla kiss, daddy makes sure to yell "EWW! GROSS." so our girls don't get any funny ideas. 😉 #ourturnerhome

"I'd nose dive that!" (Hikes down river a little further.).

"Yeah, maybe not." #swiperight.

How many times are we so eager in the beginning of the adventure. Until we get to the hard parts and say "Yeah, nevermind!".
.
When the waters get flowing and we can see the smooth sailing, it's easy to dream. But when an even steeper drop comes, with more cost, we can freak! 😬🙋🏼
.
Thankful to have a Father who knows the steps, takes joy in our faith, and sometimes makes it impossible to paddle back upstream before dropping us off the next waterfall into still waters.

sweet friend, your brokenness is welcome here. we all struggle. and when we share our struggles, oftentimes there is a “me too”. let us be a community to lift each other up in prayer, encourage one another, and most of all LOVE everyone. every. single. person. The world needs a little more love, a little more community, a little more encouragement. who can you show some love to today?

The word dwell has been on my mind for quite some time, especially when linking it to Psalm 91. Our thoughts have power not only on ourselves but on our environment. I chose the color purple for this piece because I want my life to be the essence of Christ. When we think of the word essence, we might think of essential, essential oil, smell, or being. Having my life be the essence of Christ is not only "being" Christ like" but being pleasing to Christ, ourselves, and others in a way that is positive and uplifting just as an essential oil is positive and uplifting.

I would love to tell you that I’m all smiles every day and I just spring up out of bed, full of encouraging quotes and bible verses to share, ha! That’s simply not true. I have my down days which I acknowledge, but every day, every moment is a constant choice of saying “yes” to whatever God asks of me. I miss it many times, but He always meets me in the middle of my mess. My heart is always for those things, but that doesn’t necessarily mean I follow through with them. I’m human too, just like you, in need of a glorious saviour and friend - Jesus. 💚 #soulandsparkle

The word of God will not produce results in a man, unless it descends into his heart. It is in the heart that the word is synthesized into a force. Faith is thus a spiritual force that taps the omnipotence of God into a situation......

“And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭8:38-39‬ ‭NLT‬‬ 🙌🏾#truthquotes

Today’s weather made me think of the opening scenes in Mary Poppins where the wind is blowing and changing directions and everyone senses that something is about to happen...and then all of the sudden, those nannies standing in line are blown away as Mary Poppins makes her graceful appearance! Maybe I shouldn’t compare real life to Mary Poppins, but it was windy today, and the combination of that, with 79 degree weather in February, made it feel a bit strange...including the trees that are now blooming early. //
It’s been a reprieve though, in many ways, just being able to walk outside and not having to brace for the cold. I felt it spiritually too, in that sometimes after battling long on our knees, after bracing our hearts for the blows, after carrying the weight of heavy days, God shifts the winds and we sense a new thing happening. We see the blossoms on the trees as signs that he has been moving and fighting on our behalf all the while we’ve been on our knees in the trenches. He has heard, he does see, and we can take a deep breath...a sigh of reprieve...that the Lord Almighty is always our defender and he is always doing a new thing, and sometimes he surprises us with blossoms in February.

I'm in St. Pete this weekend with my hubby for a work trip. I've had zero time to take photos. But I've been inspired by all the plants and colors here 💛
So IPhone photography it is 🤘

You’ve been given talents and abilities, and you might have even sharpened them into skills. God gave your those talents for a reason, and He’s called you to partner with the Holy Spirit living inside of you and use them to birth something new on Earth.

Take a moment today to ask Jesus how you can employ the talents and skills you’ve been given. Spend time creating with the Holy Spirit—keeping in constant dialogue with Him as you practice the talents you’ve been given.

Learn to live as an artist whose first qualification is his relationship with The Holy Spirit, and watch how He unlocks the skills in you waiting to be unleashed.

Imaginable, incomparable love to humankind. Selfless, unconditional, sacrificial, undeserving, but forgiving at all times. The highest form of “love” more than physical and cannot be measurable. “Agape” perfectly describes the kind of love Jesus Christ has for his Father and for his followers. Oh what love. 😌

Have you heard of @brenebrown? Well ... I literally inhaled her latest book ‘Braving the Wilderness’ on the plane journey over to NYC.
_
No joke.
_
I read the book in its entirety during that plane journey. I highlighted. I underlined. I scribbled notes. I markered pages. The poor man next to me probably thought I was a bit intense!! _
In this season, I’m a human embodiment of ‘braving the wildnerness’ - and I’m feeling less than brave right now. I’m sitting on an idea, with lots of cogs in process, but have been stalling.
_
And deep down, I know it’s fear.
_
But I also know that the Lord is doing a new thing and He WILL make a way ... I have no reason to fear my wilderness!

Beyond grateful for this father/son crew. I met Michael and his son Austin a few years ago at @kingdomboundofficial where we led worship together. Now we share the same label @sprigworship and an amazing friendship.
This weekend was incredible at the Worship Northwest Conference here in Oregon! I’m looking forward to joining them at their church in Grants Pass next weekend!
Check out Michaels music @michaelbahn
And Austin’s earthshaking beats @michaelbahnn (a force to be reckoned with)

There was no better place for #bossbabes to be than the @createcultivate conference in #dtla yesterday. ⠀⠀
⠀⠀
Truthfully, I’ve been feeling a little burned out on blogging, social media, and living my life so curated lately.⠀⠀
⠀⠀
I wasn’t even in the mood for a boss babe rally, yet, turns out it was just what I needed.⠀⠀
⠀⠀
#createcultivatela was like being surrounded by 50 of your best celeb friends, CEOs, and empire builders, all willing to pour into you with their stories, struggles, strategies and success secrets.⠀⠀
⠀⠀
It made me realize so many of them started off just like my friends and I— with dreams on their heart, a desire to pursue their passion, and no clear roadmap but a whole lot of gumption to overcome whatever obstacles were in the way.⠀⠀
⠀⠀
It reminded me that the process of getting to where we want to be is unique for each of us, it requires a willingness to show up, to be ourselves, to fail, to learn, and to get back up again.⠀⠀
⠀⠀
#womensupportingwomen isn’t just a hashtag or a movement, it’s a way of life we should all subscribe to. Whatever our hope is for the future, we cannot get there alone.⠀

And sometimes it’s not the people above you whose help you need, but the girl across from you.⠀
⠀⠀
Connect with those around you and pour into them. We are meant to rise together.⠀⠀

Happy Sunday! It's important to make sure every day we are taking steps to grow, as women, wives, and mothers.

So as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him: bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God -Colossians 1:10
