15 Aug The Whole Picture.

Happy Monday, Friends!

Decided to get on here and blog as its been a couple weeks. I am going to create a list of goals, and blogging weekly is going to be on that list. Because it’s been something God has put on my heart, and it really brings me back to a place that is comfortable and vulnerable and just genuinely authentically me. I am a blogger at heart, with all the other things I am juggling or working on – it all stemmed from my blog. So whenever I get the chance to just write, I need to make sure I take it. Here’s the chance for me today and I really want to chat about something that is hard or has been hard for me, but the other day as I was talking to my sis, Aisha, we got enlightened about something from our Heavenly Father and I just want to share it with you. Will you listen for a minute?

04 Aug The Faith Journey.

IMG_4451

It’s been awhile since I’ve consistently written on my blog. I’ve been saying for awhile that I am going to start blogging more and it just hasn’t happened the way I have wanted to. As I write this, I have my son AJ sitting on one leg trying to grab the keyboard on my laptop and on the other side of me is my 2 year old, Layla, whining about something. I literally don’t know why, but does it matter? At this age, anything can throw off a tantrum 0_0

This is life right now. Trying to go forward with kids in tow. This is the motherhood journey. And its hard. Right now things mentally are harder than I want to admit.

This whole faith thing is taking a new form for me.

I didn’t realize how much I didn’t truly have trust before. Like it was much easier to trust God when I felt like I had a backup plan. It was always so simple for me to believe God would work something out when I had already figured out a backup for if He didn’t come through. So, as I look back I could totally see that was doubt. That I trusted Him enough, but if all else fails I had plan B. But now my faith journey has changed. I am finding myself often without a plan b. Like back against the wall, God HAS TO come through. With my son’s health, my art career, motherhood woes, everything.

19 Jul When Less is Really More.

It’s been awhile since I’ve written. Just written here on the blog. I’ve been following God in sharing other mother’s hearts behind #MotherhoodisSanctifying. I’ve been using this platform to share testimonies, inspire women, spur on this community. But I feel its time for me to start writing again. Seasons come and go, and a new season is upon me.

I really wanted to touch on so many things that have been changing in my life, but do you have a moment? I promise it won’t be too long 😉 Jesus has really been showing me a new place in Him. He’s showing me more about trusting Him, about abiding in His word, about putting Him and keeping Him and not man, on the throne of my heart.
