These are some of my favorite and completely random recipes! I cherish the opportunities I have to be a homemaker and create community through these recipes. These recipes truly do enrich my life. My mom taught me most of these so all credit goes to her. She made my childhood amazing by having us do chores and always pushing us to learn how to make things when we could.

Oh my lanta girls, I wish I would have taken this more seriously. But also, this isn’t just about preparing for marriage, it is about preparing and living life to its fullest! It is about flourishing and being bountiful. If we are constantly looking forward to the next season in our lives, we will never be able to enjoy the one that we are currently in! I deeply wish that I would have chosen to be more content in my season of singleness and just taken advantage of the time to serve others, foster deep relationships, and learn skills.

Light slowly seeps into the darkness, overwhelming it with bright luminescent rays. The soft quiet turns to a noisy chirping in the trees above. Colors of every kind leak across the sky causing a smile within my soul.
Oh what we miss when we sleep through all of this. To watch the Lord’s universe come alive and wake up to the newness of a dawn. Continue reading “An Inspired Morning (Up Early & Productive)”
To preface this list, I just want to go ahead and say that you are not a bad wife if you do not do these things, and not all wives can do all these things! These are some things that I have found to be a great avenue of loving my husband sacrificially. I want to make His life more full, Christ centered, and love filled. I want the best for Him! And no, these things do not happen everyday, but they are my goals! Continue reading “5 Ways to Sacrificially Serve Your Husband”
Before we jump into these tips, let’s remember that less is more. You don’t need all of the latest fashion statements to create a warm environment where you can serve and love people well. Although, you can totally have an Instagram worthy home on a budget! It is all about how you use your resources. The home was created by God to be a place where people are nurtured and grow to know Him. It has such potential to be a place where ministry happens amidst the chaos. Discipleship over coffee, children learning about a God who loves them, people who are invited and wanted, strangers welcomed amiably, Small group meetings taking place, and the list goes on and on.

I believe that we have been beautifully created by a thoughtful God. A God who had a vision of a thriving creation dependent on Him. The first institution that God created was marriage. He knew that man was not meant to be alone and that woman filled that need in a physical and emotional way. We are helpers. Continue reading “The Nature of Nesting”
The importance of feminine beauty has been slowly stolen from our culture by the rise of feminism. Women are pushed to be more masculine and to dominate. As a Christian woman and wife, I think that this is terribly sad. A movement started with good intentions turned into masking what God has given us. Men and women were created differently and with different roles (a great book on this is “Girl Defined”.)
This is something that the Lord keeps reteaching me and pressing into my heart lately. It might be the fact that I married my best friend last week, and as a wife I want to create an awesome God honoring marriage where I speak life into Him and encourage Him to seek the Lord and be my leader. It could be the fact that as a wife ( and totally obsessed with children) that I can’t stop thinking about how I want to raise my kids to walk in truth, meditating on it constantly. It could be that I just moved to a new place and feel like it is a fresh start to be known for gospel talk rather than gossip talk. Continue reading “Speaking and Meditating on THE Truth”
If you don’t mind, I am going to take a hot minute to brag on my God if that is alright? Cool. Thanks.
