Speechless

This article was originally written in July of 2009 on my personal blog. Thank you for reading!

Recently, a few people have commented on how they most appreciate my singing above my other gifts. I’d have to say that falls pretty low on my list of favorites. The reason being that it exposes who I am. My voice is ME. I can’t hide behind a camera, layers of makeup, a fictional character, my fears…or silence.

Silence is something I clung to because I feared my words would fall on disinterested ears. “People don’t care what I have to say.” Being a Christian I know these are words the enemy uses to stop me from spreading God’s message. Keeping me from loving others with my advice, encouraging words, humor, and music. Continue reading “Speechless”

I’ve known the founder of MLove Life for years, and she’s always had an uncanny ability to share the details of a holistic lifestyle in a very simplistic way. Changing the way you think about your diet can be very overwhelming, but over the years I’ve been able to feel and see the positive effects it has had on my life. One of the ways she shares her life is through the ministry of nutrition and sharing how we can treat our bodies like the temples they are. Along with health, Melissa shares her journey of motherhood, putting together a beautiful home, fashion, and a sneak peak into her fabulous scripture-based cook book in the making.

Fashion Friday: Braids

Beauty is all around us and our Creator has given us so much inspiration to work with. We all know that true beauty comes from the inside, but on Fashion Fridays we discover the latest fashion and beauty trends that help us to feel beautiful on the outside.

It’s amazing how a braid is appropriate for any and all occasions and can be used on any hair type. From sleeping in braids at night so your hair doesn’t get tangled, to walking down the aisle on your wedding day. We love these looks, and hope you’re inspired to try some of them soon.  Continue reading “Fashion Friday: Braids”

Through the Darkest Valley

This article was originally written in November of 2013 for Our Witness, a website that highlights personal testimonies of Christians all over the world. Thank you for reading!

The day after I lost my baby was the only day I literally wanted to die. I’ve met other women who suffered a miscarriage before, but they still seemed “normal”, so I didn’t think much of the impact it has on women until it happened to me.

They said it was “hard” and “one of the most difficult events they’ve ever been through”, but I couldn’t imagine the attachment they had to their unborn child no matter how brief or how long their baby was wrapped in its mother’s womb.

We weren’t trying to get pregnant, but it was something I could hardly wait for. I always joked that I’ve been wanting a baby since I was a baby, so since I’ve been married I’ve had multiple talks with my husband asking why we couldn’t have a baby…NOW.  My period came like clockwork and so did the symptoms, however the day before I was supposed to start my cycle, me and my husband were watching our favorite shows and I had this overwhelming and exciting urge to yell “I’m pregnant!”

Well, for obviously reasons, I didn’t. Continue reading “Through the Darkest Valley”

I attended a few events at the Oh, Hello Friend shop before meeting its owner Danni for the first time. Once I laid eyes on her humble and beaming smile, I couldn’t help but hug her as if we had known each other since childhood. Her store has a feeling of home as she welcomes you in with messages of “You are loved” on display throughout the space. In the short time since her brand was founded, God has move her into directions she never dreamed, and is constantly expanding her vision for it. I can’t even imagine where her business is headed, but I’m glad to be along for the ride. Continue reading “Promo Tuesday with Oh, Hello Friend”

Funny Friday: Church Life

God has a sense of humor and so do we. Let’s get the weekend started with a good laugh!

If you’ve ever been to a church service, at least one of these will ring a bell. These memes are certainly on point.

1.) And you don’t feel like posing for pictures in your cute outfit either.

2.) Can I get an “Amen”?

3.) And you rush to finish the verse out loud with the congregation.

4.) For those of us who like to stay up late Saturday night.

A Hole is Where the Heart Is

This article was originally written in January of 2012 for Our Witness, a website that highlights personal testimonies of Christians all over the world. Thank you for reading!

Recently, my husband and I had our first encounter with serious repairs to our apartment. Ever since the first time it rained while we were living on our own, we’ve been dealing with leaks here and there in our office. There was even an incident when I noticed a leak above my computer desk right before we were about to leave for a meeting. If we had left just a few minutes sooner, my keyboard might have been soaked by the time we returned home and that would have been a whole other problem.

Even though the leak was apparent in three different spots, it was all caused by the same source. Patch work time and again just didn’t fix the problem, and our ceiling was only getting worse. This most recent leak was also the most damaging as water started seeping through the walls. We practically demanded management come and see for themselves what the problem was and repair it for good. Instead, we got a knock on the door by the same maintenance men who had been “fixing” this leak for the past year or so. Great. Continue reading “A Hole is Where the Heart Is”

All I can say is that God definitely brought us together. There are those sisters and brothers in Christ you meet that God keeps weaving in and out of your lives, but you always seem to connect at just the right moment. Caroline (founder of Pursue Love Design Co.) has been planning events for the better part of a decade and there have been several times we’ve worked together in the past. As God expands her ministry to help couples plan their perfect wedding, or to accumulate props and decor for a birthday party, she does it with her entire heart. I’m excited for the future of our ministries and looking forward to how God uses her in every aspect of her life. Continue reading “Promo Tuesday with Pursue Love Design Co.”
