Back to School Season!

Back to school season! It’s back to school season, even though the stores have been marching to that beat for awhile now. Does anyone else think it is crazy how early stores switch over to the “next” thing. I’m pretty sure Hobby Lobby is about to dig their Christmas stuff out… While you can run

Social Media & Our Children

Do you ever remember a time it felt dangerous to go somewhere as a kid? For me, that was walking to the 7 Eleven by myself when I was eight. But now, kids don’t even have to move their feet to find themselves in dangerous situations. Danger lives at their fingertips. I’ve said it before,

A Season of Loneliness

Are you in a season of loneliness? So many times, we look at seasons where we feel that being lonely is a burden. We see all we are missing; all we wish we had in connection with others.And I understand. It’s so hard to feel like no one else sees you, like no one else

You woke up today. Today we are going to talk about how you breathe. Fun fact: Breathing through your nose instead of your mouth allows your body to filter out dust and allergens. Maybe you’ve seen jokes in reference to “mouth breathers,” but nose breathing is a superior way to breathe. Why? Breathing through your

You woke up today. Let me say that again. You. Woke. Up. Today. What an incredible blessing it is just to be breathing—to be alive. So many times in life we allow the pressures of the world to sit on our shoulders, causing our teeth to grind and worries to begin piling up within our

Happy Thursday, friend! I wanted to send out a reminder that hard work isn’t scary. But not doing the hard work is very, very scary. I know it can often feel like it’s a lot—too much for your own strength and capabilities. I’ve heard often on social media that people blame money for their problems, that

One thing I’ve noticed with summer is first, this season is something we look forward to. Then, we become overwhelmed with it. Overwhelmed with the kids. Overwhelmed with the activities. Overwhelmed with the late nights. Overwhelmed with feeling so drained. And I get it. Summer comes in at a rapid pace, like stepping onto a

Have you ever questioned why life feels so hard? I know you are either nodding your head in agreement, wishing there was a heart button, or silently saying “yes” within. It seems so cliché to say that “life is hard” these days but in a world moving a million miles a minute dumping thousands of

It’s June and a month that once just meant the beginning of summer now has a completely different definition thanks to a rainbow flag. First, I am not condemning those within the LGBTQ+ community, but what I am not okay with is the month-long celebration about sexuality. What this month has become should be private

Something I’ve been pondering as I’ve triggered multiple people on Instagram lately is the current societal norm to pick something apart into so many little pieces that the big picture is impossible for them to see—like a puzzle deconstructed. And while deconstructing puzzles can be helpful to us in our personal journeys as we deconstruct

Memorial Day Weekend is upon us, and that means we will most likely be outside with our families! There’s still time to get what you need to make sure you are covered while outdoors.  Here is a testimony from a member: “Kunzea is one of our favorite oils, and it’s one we all need especially

Let’s talk about this current trend to label adults with ADHD… I get how easy it is to fall into this cult-like obsession with the label. We all want to be seen, to be understood, to feel part of something and the symptoms that are associated with this label are ones many people have—not because

Today’s thoughts go out to the mothers. A long time ago I had this really eye opening conversation with a friend about being in the thick of motherhood and the process we experience that shapes our perspective on making decisions for our children’s health. Maybe you’ve had some of these similar experiences: ·   You take your

The road is not a fast or easy road, but it is a road well worth traveling.- Jodie Meschuk I said this a few years ago and it is something that still rings true for me. The road to healing doesn’t come with fast fiber internet downloading a gigabit per second. Healing is more like
