Every amazing member of BCMF knows what it’s like to feel the aches in burning muscles. We all know the feeling of wanting to run out of the building when we hear “Just 10 more.” If I’m honest there was one time this morning that I looked at the open warehouse door and thought, “I could easily run out now- no one is looking.” (kidding. Or am I?) We all relate to the pain and the endurance it takes to complete a workout.
A post about a foot injury that taught me more about the Lord than I ever thought it would.
I’m so glad the only BOOT CAMP I am a part of now, is my gym.
If you’re injured, waiting on healing, or if you’re in a season of forced rest- let this bless you.
Fight to do good so that the world will see what it looks like to overcome. Fight to show broken people what healing looks like. Fight to shine. That fight in you to sow in doing good, WILL produce a lasting reward. Fight to believe that first, then continue to work hard at any goal God sets before you. Watch your joy unfold as you see God bring a harvest.
I think I crave pizza more then any other food. It does have some health benefits… right? I know this is supposed to be a blog section all about promoting healthy living. I am categorizing this as healthy because pizza is healthy for my mind. Okay? Don’t judge me. I’m so in love with pizza that when I hear someone say that don’t like pizza I have a realllllly hard time connecting with them.
I’m not here to lecture you about the negative side effects of table sugar and heavy cream in your coffee, because darling, I know it’s good. But honestly, I have never regretted making the switch. I actually prefer the coconut over the dairy creamer because it’s smooth and a bit lighter. It doesn’t taste like coconut, so no worries of drinking a pina colada in the morning.
Personally, I believe being healthy entails more then just what we eat and drink and how we exercise. I think we also need to keep our minds and spirits healthy. We aren’t just flesh and bone, so in my opinion, the gym and greens won’t cut it. We need to be sure that we are caring for all aspects of who we are.
If you don’t have these three things… you’re missing out! Seriously- they make my life easier. And that brings me joy!
A couple practical ways to start making better choices for our planet.
I don’t want to be a woman that is constantly driven by materials. I want to have less, so that I am less distracted. I want to give more away to others then I give to myself. I want the grip of consumerism to be loosened and broken off. I want to explore new and more efficient and humble ways to approach life. Jesus is my treasure and I want my heart to always be with him.
It was a combination of sheer joy and laughter, mixed with tears and near breathlessness. I called my husband first. Like, while I was blubbering, I called him. And then my Mama, my sister, my best friend Ashley. And then after I told the few people that I just HAD TO tell, I sat in our guest bedroom, in front of a wall length mirror and just praised God. Y’all, if God replays a highlight reel from our life, I really want to see this moment again. It was precious. It felt sacred. I felt different. I was carrying life. In my womb, I was carrying the very essence of God in me. LIFE was beginning and I was officially a mother. God was knitting together a child for me that he already knew, that I had no idea about. That moment was the beginning of a changed life.
Let the children come.
Let them yell, scream, cry and interrupt. Let them ask a million “why” questions. Let them see their mom and dad love and teach and encourage. Let them see their parents confess, repent and be prayed over. Let them experience the presence of God among men and women that are desperately in need and want of him.
Prayer is our life line. It is our first line of offense, a weapon while in the battle and our last line of defense. I know this to be true, but I often find myself praying only after the battle has begun. Praying while in the midst of a frustrating moment is the best thing we can do. Not only is our faith stirred up, the Holy Spirit begins putting our eyes back onto the truth.
Some days I wake up and I think to myself, “this life is too good to be true.” And then I wipe a couple poopy butts and think, it’s not too good to be true, but it’s truly good. I seriously love my family, they bring me so much joy.
I literally do my make up in five minutes. I don’t have time or energy to do much more than that. I know some of us busy women struggle in finding time to put ourselves together. I hope this will give you some helpful tips. There’s also links to the products I use!
I’m so excited to be able to work from home and earn a little extra money to help fund my blog!
I think I like black on black so much because it’s trendy and I don’t have to try that hard. I mean, not much thought has to go into a black on black outfit. You just need two things- a black top and black bottoms.
