When God Shows Up

Yesterday was a bad day for me. I was dealing with a horrible hormonal headache from annolvuatory bleeding. I was feeling so low and hopeless. Feeling that another child would probably not be in my future. What if something happened during my D&C that has caused an eternal issue? What if I’m not ovulating and…

One of those days

It’s hard to want to write or basically do anything when you’re waking up with a headache every single day. Hormones….I hate you. Surge of estrogen they call it, yet it feels like a surge of little jack hammers going to town on my head. It’s hard to focus, work, be in a room with…

They see me Rollin….

For this post I wanted to share some of my favorite Oil Roller recipes that I keep with me in my purse. I prefer Young Living but any type of high quality oils would work. Just make sure you can roll them on your skin and they don’t say “Fragrance Only”. Fragrance only basically means…

Getting through the storm

Arkansas weather is pretty crazy, unpredictable, and quite erratic at times. Monday it was cold and damp with an high of 38 degrees. Yesterday it was gorgeous and sunny reaching a lovely 70 degrees. My kind of weather for sure. With the drastic change in temperature from day to day we see a lot of…

Bible Journaling for the Non-artist

When I got into Bible Journaling at the beginning of this year, I had no idea what different “medias” were.  How people could draw so beautifully, how their handwriting looked like the perfect font!  I was so excited to start this journey but knew that my pages would never look like the ones I saw…

According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America (ADAA), 40 million Americans over the age of 18 are affected by anxiety — roughly 18 percent of the nation’s population. Of those 40 million people, 15 million suffering from social anxiety disorder, 14.8…

The Whisper

Growing up I was not the best child. Actually, I was probably one of the worst. I was into everything I shouldn’t have been because I was rebelling due to my parents nasty divorce. And like any child going through something like that I just wanted attention. I wanted to be noticed. My best friend…

What would Jesus do?

The Thanksgiving Holiday is upon us. Last year we started a tradition to drive up to Branson, Missouri with my in laws to spend the week. It’s a tourist city with tons of shows, food, all decorated for Christmas. My daughter is finally getting old enough to enjoy all the magic of Christmas so watching…

Patience is a virtue…one I seem to lack

  Every time I read it, the voice behind it is the lady from Steel Magnolias wearing the tight girdle that harps at Dolly Parton for eating cake. “Calories, Calories!” “Patience is a virtue, patience is a virtue.”  CRINGE!!   I have always been fast-paced.  I’m constantly going, going, going and never stopping.  I’m not a…

Livin’ that Oily Life

First, I want to start off by saying I’m not one of those people who says essential oils cured me or fixed all my problems.  No, they actually haven’t.  But, they have helped me and my family tremendously and because of that I want to write some blogs about what has and HAS NOT worked…
