Flourish on a Dime: What I’m Living Without

Has it really been WEEKS since I’ve added more words to my journey towards a simple life and a full heart? Well, if you were wondering, the journey is going just beautifully. It’s beautifully hard, but still, it’s a beaut. I can honestly testify that my life today looks nothing like it did a year…

To the girl who…is so ready to be a mama.

To the high school girl who is so ready to be a mama. You don’t share this desire with many people around you for fear of odd stares, but deep down, it’s there. To the single girl who’s heart is so ready to start your family. So ready to wash dirty hands and scrub little…

To the girl who…hates her parents.

Hey girl. So we’ve heard that you maybe, sorta, kinda despise your mom and dad. Bottom line is…they don’t understand you and you have decided in your mind that you give up. On them. On trying to have a relationship with them. A few things that have ran across your mind and out of your…

To the girl who…isn’t on vacation.

I dropped my mama and brothers off at the airport the other day. They had planned a fun trip to Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida. Two of my most favorite places in the whole word. I, on the other hand, drove myself back to my empty home…and cried the whole way there. Last weekend, my…

Ashleigh & Brett’s New Journey

It’s so crazy to step back and take a long hard look at the journey you’ve been down and what you’re staring at in the moment. Not a day goes by that I don’t step back in complete shock as to what’s unfolding in our lives right now. Such humbling, weepy, undeserving, open eyed moments day after…

To the girl who…is about to have a financial breakdown.

You’re staring at that bill you got in the mail last week. You opened up your mailbox, grabbed the handful of junk mail and stuck sweetly in the middle of all that garbage? A bill. A bill you didn’t expect. A bill you definitely cannot pay. You throw it on top of the other unexpected…

To the girl who’s… infertile.

Hey y’all. If you’ve made your way to this part of Flourish, I am personally beside myself thrilled. Why? Because I believe with all my heart that the Lord LED you here. Several weeks back, my Sweet Jesus impressed upon my heart to write a post titled “To the girl who wants to adopt.” Little…

To the girl who…doesn’t feel thankful.

Sitting there alone.  The rush of hopelessness sweeping over you like a thick wave, and you’re feeling you have no control to stop it. You see it coming to take you out. You see the swift current coming to scoop you under. You are afraid. You are looking at your situation and with tears in…

To the girl who’s…family doesn’t know Jesus.

I can’t imagine what you must be dealing with. Living in a home with family who just don’t get it, who just don’t get that Jesus is what their missing. There is no doubt in my mind darling that you have been chosen just as Esther was, for such a time as this. Your mission…

To the girl who…has a gossiping problem.

Hey you. I see you over there, sticking your foot in your mouth. You’re the girl who speaks her mind… the girl who doesn’t care what others think… the girl who wants everyone else to know what SHE’S thinking. You’re the girl who can’t keep her mouth shut. That girl you despise just spread a…
