family Favorites {meal planning 101}.

Breakfast – Overnight Oats Raspberry Vanilla OO – straight up delicious. S’mores OO – a kid favorite French Toast OO – kid approved! Snacks Oatmeal Bites: 4 ingredients and so, so easy to make. No bake! (I use baby oatmeal because it tends to have more vitamins and nutrients my picky eater would otherwise miss!)…

worth the Wait. {a birth story}

Eight days. Never before has eight days seemed so long. Well, to be honest, it felt more like 16 days. You see, my second child was born 8 days early so I thought that I’d have my third early as well. At the very least I was hopeful. In reality, once the due date passed…

on identity and Pregnancy.

My husband recently asked me how I understand my main identity right now. The ‘proper’ or perhaps ‘correct’ answer is that I’m a daughter of God first, and everything else flows from that. But if I’m being honest, that isn’t how it feels. By the end of pregnancy, I told him, it becomes – at…

sheep

a sheep with no Shepherd.

I have no problem admitting what I am. I have no problem admitting that Jesus, in His countless analogies, was and is right: I am a sheep. Sheep are, for those who haven’t spent any time with them, not the brightest animal in the world. They need, desperately, a shepherd. I am a sheep in…

as a little bunny always Said…

“If you can’t say something nice, don’t say nothin’ at all!” Okay, I know it is a double negative, but you get the point. If you can’t say something nice or positive or encouraging, don’t say anything at all. I know this is a point that I’ve brought up before, but it bears repeating, especially…

the little things Matter.

Recently I had a chance to be featured on the Zelie & Co. Instagram page with a set of my peg dolls and one of the churches I paint. I worked really hard on the church and the images for the auction of my items. Then the day came and there were a few issues…

simpler Joys.

Since I sat down and attempted to write this blog, I’ve wiped runny noses, kissed boo-boos, put things away, stopped the baby (can I even call her that anymore?!) from making a jungle gym out of the barstools, and gotten zero writing done. What I have done, other than the aforementioned list, is taken note…

one beautiful Dream {book review}

I can hardly remember the last time I just couldn’t put a book down. Come to think of it, I’m pretty sure it was back when I was in high school and fighting my brother for my turn with the single copy we owned of the most recent Harry Potter installment. Jennifer Fulwiler’s One Beautiful Dream, released last…

when scripture punches the Gut.

“Clothe yourselves with humility in your dealings with one another, for: God opposes the proud but bestows favor on the humble.” -1 Peter 5:5 I’ve been trying to be more diligent about reading the daily readings a bit earlier in the day. Thankfully my kids (the ones already born or the one in utero) have…

a blessing, Period.

Somehow it has been weeks since I’ve written a new blog. Why? Two real reasons, (1) I’ve been busy with my Etsy shop and orders (yay!) and (2) I’m pregnant! By some crazy reality, I’m already nearly 15 weeks along with baby number 3, who, we found out, is a GIRL! Which brings me to…

on the generosity of God.

Last weekend my eldest toddler (because I technically have *two* toddlers now…) turned three. For her birthday, one of her great grandmothers mailed her three dollar bills. She opened her birthday card and handed me the money, at which point I had to explain that it was her money and she could spend it however she…
