I met the owner of Rare Flare a few years ago when she just had her precious baby boy and was announcing that her website was coming soon. I was pregnant at the time and it was amazing to see a new mommy who still had a passion to follow her dreams. Fast forward to today and we are both hustling our talents and showcasing our skills while balancing motherhood and marriage. I’m so inspired by her, and I know that you’ll fall in love with the beautiful one-of-a-kind items she sells in her online boutique. Happy shopping! Continue reading “Promo Tuesday with Rare Flare”

The Standard Of Christianity

Have you ever been let down by a Brother or Sister in Christ who seemed to take advantage of the notion that every action and reaction is covered by grace? Are you the Christian who thinks you can do whatever you want and have no consequences because our God is a God of mercy? These thoughts have been bouncing around my head lately after being underwhelmed by some of my interactions with other believers in relationships, business, and daily life. I am not a perfect friend, family member, business partner, or person in general, but I do strive to be more like Christ every day. I believe that’s what God is expecting from us.

On a phone conversation with a friend, I was mentioning how I used to have this naivety about other Christians and felt that “We’re all believers, so we unquestionably have the same standards.” That rose-colored phrase has proven to be wrong time and time again. If it was so easy to live a holy life, everyone would do it. I’m open to seeing how I can be a better steward of this life. If you are as well, I’d love to share with you what I’ve learned so far.

The more I learn about how our diet and lifestyle affect our health, the more grateful I am that God has placed some amazing and knowledgeable Christians in my life. Jamie Chan-Ortega of Oasis Healing Arts is one of those people. I remember having conversations with her about the misinformation that is out there about nutrition, and how our immune system will succeed or fail depending on how we feed it. I remember my younger days of surviving on fast food and thinking my Arizona Green Iced Tea was healthy. I was constantly fatigued and would catch any bug that was going around throughout the year. Thanks to friends like Jamie, my family hardly gets sick and–believe it or not–we don’t survive off of kale and green smoothies. Balance is the key to life, and I hope you check out more information that Oasis Healing Arts has to offer. Continue reading “Promo Tuesday with Oasis Healing Arts”

Fashion Friday: Modest Glam

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.

We don’t think Christians should be dressed in revealing clothing, but we don’t think they need to be covered from head to toe either. When you imagine a modest outfit, what does it look like? For some of you it may mean a certain length skirt or a specific neckline, and ultimately modesty should be a lifestyle that permeates every aspect of your life. It’s important to seek God to guide you in your wardrobe, but we also thought it might be helpful to see some examples. Here’s a video with three “modest glam” looks that are sophisticated, feminine, and elegant.

Which outfit is your favorite?

In Love,

What Does it Mean to be a Proverbs 31 Woman?

What does it mean to have it all, do it all, and be everything to everyone? I don’t know, but it makes me tired just thinking about it. I think most Christian women have Proverbs 31 on a pedestal, but many of us are asking “How do I apply this to my life?”

I’m not an early riser and I don’t have female servants. I don’t own property (yet), neither do I wish to have a vineyard. You would think that this wife of noble character described in the bible is a busy-body, but we’ve learned in Luke 10:38-42 that sitting at the Lord’s feet is far more important than having your hands full.

While looking through my list of people I wanted to promote through this website, I was shocked that I hadn’t gotten to my dear friend Amy Jean yet! She’s a painter, photographer, tattoo artist, wife, mother, and just all around amazing human being. So amazing in fact that she introduced me to my husband 8 years ago. I interviewed her on my personal webpage when I was doing a series that highlighted artist. And here we are again. The thing I admire about her the most is that she brings humor and joy everywhere she goes. Her laid back approach–which fits very well into her home of Hawaii–is a reminder that we all need to breathe every once in a while, forget the to-do list, and keep the important things of life a priority. I only know a few artists that excel in everything they put their hands to, and she is one of them. Follow her Instagram if you don’t believe me.

Funny Friday: 7 Hilarious Christian Jokes

How I Gained Confidence Through Christ

I get asked a lot “Have you always been this confident?” The truth is: NO WAY! It took me a long time to be the confident woman I am. I’ve struggled with identity issues and feeling insecure for many reasons (that I describe in this video). It wasn’t until my walk with God was solid that I found peace in who I was because I finally understood whose I was. It’s been a journey of self-discovery that I’m sure every human has to go through in order to walk confidently through life. I still find myself dabbling in comparison and doubt, but it’s not the all-consuming fire that it used to be.
