💙Wedding season is upon us! If you need someone to do your makeup for your wedding or your bridals, (AKA foundation/blush/contour that will NOT transfer onto your dress or your husbands suit, and lipstick that won’t come off when you kiss him/eat your cake, and eyeshadow that won’t crease or budge for your whole special day) then IM YOUR GAL! •

Many of you have gone through the process of naming your children -- and how big of a decision was that?!
Can you fathom having God's authority to name all things? What if you were Adam to which God gave the authority to "give names to all livestock and to the birds of the heavens and to every beast of the field?"
In this week's study [✨hit that bio link] we begin to talk about God's naming authority and being comfortable and confident in our names of woman and wife. If you are questioning your name this week, I encourage you to check it out!
Taking a quick break from work to run some errands! Got my water and my snack- heading to Target and then going to pick up our photos from the Team Retreat Photoshoot!!!🙆🏻♀️👯♀️✨💕
I’m SO excited to see the pictures!!!!!
So much the same, yet so very very different. I'm not about to say I look bad in the picture on the left, or that I look better now. This post isn't about the physical transformation that you see when you look at it, but the internal transformation that the physical one represents. ⠀
In the picture on the left I was still in the beginning part of this journey, figuring it out for me and me alone. I was still battling daily depression and anxiety attacks. I was fighting food. I was miserable in my marriage. I doubted my importance and what the hell life was even meant for. (I'm still not sure about that, but I'm not going to waste any time stressing about it, I'm to busy LIVING). I was searching for purpose and drive and while I hadn't found it yet, I KNEW it was out there for me and I had a feeling that these at home workouts and mysterious superfood shake were somehow going to lead me to it.⠀
They did. It sounds so simple...do a workout at home. Drink a $4 dense nutrition shake. Share it with others. Live and LOVE life. It's exactly that simple!! I'm one of those types of people that tends to over think EVERYTHING and learning to let it go and just be ME has been the experience of a lifetime. I've made it my job to be myself and live life the way I want to and share that with other people...how dope is that!? (Really dope, don't even play). The greatest thing? You can do this too.
Grace. I’m not always good at giving it. I’m also not always quick to give it, but I’m always quick to want it when I’m the one that messes up. Jesus reminded me on my prayer walk in the park this morning this powerful truth: giving grace isn’t saying what the person did was okay. It just saying you are deciding to forgive them, let the wrong go. Just like Jesus does for us, forgives then tosses our sins as far as the east is from the west. Psalm 103:12 “He has removed our sins as far from us as the east is from the west.” I needed that reminder. To know you can still stand up for yourself and say your feelings were hurt and what they did was wrong, but at the same time decide to have grace, no matter what their response to your standing up for yourself is. Grace and standing up for yourself CAN go hand in hand. Speak the truth but do it in a loving way and chase it down with a glass (decision) of grace.
Grace is not given when conditions are met. Grace is unearned and undeserved. It’s not given once an apology is given or a person realizes they were in fact in the wrong. True grace is given before any of those things happen. True grace and forgiveness remains even if those things never happen, if no apology comes, no wrong is realized. Grace and forgiveness are choices and come before you feel like doing them. No one wins when grace is withheld though so it’s best for both parties to forgive and forget as soon as possible, so roots of bitterness don’t have time to ruin the relationships and jade you and rob you of your relationships. And the only way we can give that true grace is by tapping into His ability. Next time you and I are struggling to give grace, let’s pray for help. Let’s be humble and ask to borrow the strength of the Father who is always so quick to give us grace. Colossians 3:13 “Make allowance for each other's faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others.” My husband and I watched a movie this weekend and the main character was prideful and messed up. It was so beautiful when he apologized to his friends that his decision hurt and they quickly embraced him back ... rest in comments!
My food is winking at me because it KNOWS...
It knows I can eat whatever I WANT, but what do I really want (I know you sang the Spice Girls song too🤣)
I want to feel energized
I want to feel satisfied
I want all things to flow easily
It’s all about daily choices and today I choose this, tomorrow might look different and that’s okay too!

Having healthy skin that I feel comfortable going out bare faced in has always been important to me, at a very young age I was using night creams & washing my face 2x a day. 🧖🏻♀️Now that I’m in my late 20’s & have begun to notice a few fine lines starting to creep their way in, I’ve been taking extra steps to help in the anti-aging process. One of the ones I’ve been loving is the @olehenriksen Glow Cycle Retin-ALT Power Serum. 🌱I was sent this guy to try out complementary for testing purposes & I’ve been Loving it since day one! If you’ve been looking into adding some Retinol to your skincare check this one out not only does it use a #plantbased alternative 🌿as opposed to most Animal derived Retinol but I love that it was able to brighten up my under-eye area & darkness without fading my freckles, plus it smells like a lemon bar! Who doesn’t love that?! 🍋
