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…

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…

Ashleigh & Brett’s Adoption Journey…Love on the Line

Isn’t it funny how the Lord speaks? He speaks through people. He speaks through silence. He speaks through the words of worship. Here lately, as these past few weeks have slowly crept on, I’ve found myself asking Jesus for specific things. I see this adoption process, this wait coming to an end. This brings an…

To the girl who…doesn’t know what to do.

“Decisions are the worst…” One of my ALL TIME FAVORITE MOVIE QUOTES EVER from one of my ALL TIME FAVORITE MOVIES: Girls Just Wanna Have Fun. Forget the fact that the girl who said this in the movie was having a ridiculously difficult time deciding what to wear out of her massive million dollar closet….

To the woman who…needs a word.

“Warrior” I find myself continuing to ponder on the truth of II Chronicles 16:9- “The eyes of the Lord search the whole earth in order to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to Him…” God is looking for the warriors. Yes, He does strengthen the hearts of those weak and wounded but He also…

To the girl who…doesn’t feel enough.

 ” BUT he said to me,” My GRACE IS sufficient for you, for my power is made PERFECT in weakness.”                                                                      …

To the girl who…is unloved.

Do you feel unloved today? Have you found yourself alone, longing for love but unable to see it, feel it, experience it? Are you the mom who’s walking this journey of raising your baby single? Has the man in your life, the man who promised to love you forever and always on that altar, left…

To the woman who…needs a word.

“Alabaster Box” “While He (Jesus) was eating, a woman (Lazarus’ sister, Mary) came in with a beautiful alabaster jar of expensive perfume and poured it over His head”. Matthew 26:7 “She has poured this perfume on me to prepare my body for burial. I tell you the truth wherever the Good News is preached throughout…

The 21 days that changed my life.

This month one year ago….I was invited to be apart of a church’s 21 day prayer and fasting. Every morning they would gather at 6 am, everyone all bundled up with coffees in hand, to spend a whole hour talking to God. Not just talking. Weeping. Crying out. Pacing back and forth as they moved…

To the woman who…needs a word.

“He rescued me” “HE reached down from heaven and RESCUED ME; He drew me out of deep waters. HE RESCUED ME from my powerful enemies, from those who hated me and were too strong for me. They attacked me at a moment when I was in distress but the Lord supported me. He led me…

To the girl who…needs to stay.

“Where you go I will go and where you stay I will stay…” Ruth 2 Going is fun. Hearing the Lord tell you to go is thrilling. Exciting. Adventurous. And if anyone knows me at all, they know I’m one girl who’s always up for some adventure. Let’s go do something new. Let’s go on…

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…
