Your Pain Serves a Purpose. Godly Lessons in Infertility.

It is often said that patience is a virtue. And it certainly is one that God has been engraining into my heart lately.

And that pain isn’t something I wish on my greatest enemy. I pray it is something most never have to know. It is also something that women (and even more…

2015. The Breather Year.

Well, it is that time again where I sit down and I write my thoughts down regarding the year we are finishing out. 2011 marked the year of social media. 2012 was the year of love. 2013 was the year of marriage, and 2014 was the year of the home.  It has been quite an incredible journey, all chronicled here on the blog. The journey of meeting Mark, moving to North Dakota, getting married, and building a home. Phew. 2015…

The Girl Who Never Fit In

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about where I am in life. Right now. Compared to three, four, five years ago. Right now I am: three years into a new life in Ashley, ND. Married. Literally planted roots here. Trying to start a family. Have re-ignited and strengthened my faith. Continuing to take control of my fitness.  As I think about all of these things, I can’t help but think that right now, this very moment, has been the first time…

The Journey of Finding Trust in God’s Plan

This is the hardest post I’ve ever written. This post exposes the most vulnerable parts of me.  But for some reason, I keep coming back to it. Something inside of me keeps saying, share it.  My finger has hovered over the publish button for weeks.  I can’t wrap my head around why this topic seems to be some sort of secret code of secrecy among women. I know there are more who have been down this journey. So I guess a part…

2014. Our Year in Photos

Time goes by so quickly, it’s so easy to forget all that happens in a year. I love putting together our year in photos. It reminds me of some of the wonderful times we shared together, with our families, and with our friends.  As I look back on 2014 in photos, I am reminded of our  epic trip to Singapore, Cambodia, and Thailand, our trips to the Black Hills on the Harley, our Thanksgiving in California, celebrating our first year…

Faith Friday: What I’ve Been Soaking Up

You guys… I miss Faith Fridays! I love sharing resources, thought provoking passages, scriptures, sermons, and everything else with you all! So I wanted to share with you what I’ve been soaking up this week. One of the sermons below was talking about how we are like a sponge, the things we soak up and penetrate us most deeply are the things that we are going to push out when we are squeezed. I loved that. This week I have been…
