The Excellent Wife: Week 3 Homework

Good Morning ladies! Before we get started, I want you to stop. I want you to close your eyes. I want you to ask the Lord to speak to you in a way you’ve not known before. Ask Him to put a love in your heart for Him, for HIS heart. Everything we attempt to…

Flourish on a Dime: Where do I start?

I had a conversation with a friend a few days ago that’s still got my wheels turning. How is it that we so often want Jesus to use our lives to make a difference for eternal purpose, but secretly hold back the things that we’re embarrassed of, the things that we keep hidden, the things…

Flourish on a Dime: A journey to a simple life & a full heart

I’m about to share a part of my life with you that I have never really felt led to be vulnerable with. Coming from the heart of emotions and feels, choosing to go a different path in my words feels funny this morning, but exciting all the same. I’ve spent the past year dwelling on…

Flourish MAMA Flourish : A new season

To the woman who…needs a word.

“Affliction” The longer I remain in affliction, the more glory brought to His name. The longer I remain in affliction, the more people see His strength and not mine.

To the girl who…is walking through a trial.

Lately I’ve found myself flipping over to the book of James every time I sit down with the Lord. I feel like I’m betraying my journey through Deuteronomy with every glance into another book, but I just can’t help myself. I don’t know if it’s the fact that my husband is in love with the…

To the woman who…needs a word.

“Where are you planted?” “Oh, the joys of those who do not follow the advice of the wicked or stand around with sinners or join in with mockers. But they delight in the law of the Lord meditating on it day and night. They are like trees planted along the riverbank bearing fruit each season….

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…thinks she’s gay.

Daughter, you feel different. You feel pulled in the opposite direction as all of those around you. You’re not proud of it, but you’re staring straight in the face of your desire and you don’t know what to do about. You’re attracted to girls. Why? Why me? Why do I feel this way? Why am…

1 John 2:15-17

1 John 2:15-17. Go read it.  I’ve often heard that what you love will be crazy evident to those around you. I’ve often heard that there’s no need to ask someone what or who they love, because it’s the things and people they talk about most. So, precious, what do YOU love? I don’t get…
