Being a mom is probably the most unselfish job you can think of and it really makes you realize actually just how selfish you have been with your time before having a baby. There is no more last minute getting ready to go out or just chilling for a couple of hours without having to worry about anyone else except yourself, nights consisted of hours of glorious, non-interrupted sleep and you never had to worry about trying to have a world record speedy bath or shower because halfway through you hear a screaming baby. It’s all a huge learning curve, and I’m learning and growing constantly. But one thing I have to admit, all of this time and self giving is so rewarding when your little human, contently looks at you or falls sleeps peacefully on your chest- and then you think, I can do this!

"...giving thanks to the father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance in the inheritance of the saints in light." Colossians 1:12 . To be very honest, although I have loved Christ for a lot of years now, I didn't really know what it was to be fascinated, gripped and captivated by Him, until now. There were life changing touches of His beauty desposited in me that were rich, healing, loving , forgiving and transforming over the years. What I knew of this beauty though always related to me or how He was touching someone elses life. . I've come to realize I knew a small Christ, a contained Christ, I didn't know the Christ beyond myself, the Christ whom is absolutely everythhing to our Father! I thought it was a given that the Christ beyond myself would be introduced to me when I died and went to heaven. Little did I know... . Four words from the verse quoted above; qualified, share, inheritance, saints. As believers we all share in the extraordinary, gracious priveledge of receiving Christ. No distinctions of any kind prevent us from receiving Christ as our portion now. His Life is our portion, we have inherited Him! Just as the Israelities were given the Canaan Land, rich and overflowing in all they could ever want or need, so we have been given Christ! God has given each and everyone of us all he can give, His very best, His Son! . . . #christianblogger #encouragementgallery #pursuitcommunity

This song — It’s been on repeat for weeks now. It’s getting me through. It’s keeping me sane. It’s giving me words when I don’t have them and it’s giving me a song to sing to Heaven when it’s hard to muster up my own. Keep your eyes off the temporal. Keep looking toward the eternal. . @bethelmusic

Yesterday was definitely a step out if my comfort zone. 🎵 A couple months ago or so, I was contacted by a pastor with an opportunity to help lead worship on a Sunday as they search for a new worship pastor. It turns out that my worship pastor had given my name as an option for this kind of opportunity. At first, I was in shock. At that point, I had only recently joined the worship team on The Crossing and hadn’t even served on a Sunday there yet. I felt not even close to being qualified. Let alone the fact that I had never even lead a full worship set alone on a Sunday. 🎵 Despite all of my feelings of inadequacy, I acknowledged the fact that the Lord could use this to grow me. Was I nervous? YOU BET. But I knew that I needed to take this step out of my comfort zone. You’ll never grow if you’re always comfortable, that’s for sure. Plus, if God is leading you, He will equip you with what you need along the way. And He sure did in this case! I didn’t need to have the best voice or experience, all He needed was my whole heart and for me to obey Him in this. 🎵 It went well. I was blown away with Grace Church @gracechurchlv and how they welcomed me and loved on me. It was an honor to worship with them! God is so good! 🎵 Shout out to my husband for changing his work shift so he could support me in this moment. ♥️ . . . . . #encouragementgallery #bedeeplyrooted #gritandvirtue #lifelivedbeautifully #shareyourheart #boldbraveyou #sheislight #calledtobecreative #aquietstyle #darlingmovement #graceupongrace #encouragementgallery #bedeeplyrooted #gritandvirtue #pursuepretty #petitejoys #howyouglow #darlingmovement #lampandlight #communityovercompetition #thatsdarling #inbeautyandchaos #seekinspirecreate #belovedlife #delightandbe #creativityfound #womenintheword #worshipteam #worship #schladythoughts

“What’s the last thing God told you to do?” As I pondered over this question this past week, I remembered His kinds words echoing, “Just sit in my goodness.” - It’s here where I’m reminded of how He made the impossible possible. - It’s here where His provisions overwhelmed me. - It’s here where my little girl feels safe. - It’s here where I can dream again. - It’s here where my faith is strengthened. - It’s here where I find rest. - It’s here where my worth isn’t tied to anything other than just being His daughter. - So while everything else feels like total chaos, I sit and abide in him, knowing that there’s nothing I have to do other than just trust.

We turned the space where a TV goes into Lily’s school area. I had to snap a picture this evening because it never looks like this! I absolutely love all of her fall books and a few of my fall beanie babies from when I was a kid! I painted the canvas shortly after I found out I was pregnant in the two seconds before extreme morning sickness set in. I love that Lily has so many spaces in our house where she can learn.

Can I just say @morganharpernichols quotes are the most encouraging thing on this planet! Can’t say a whole ton (tmi for the gram) but there is couple things I my life I’m just waiting on the Lord for. Waiting for him to answer prayers, give me answers on what direction to go in. But in this season I’ve known that God is completely on my side, and is there to guide me through every little bit of it. My favorite bible verse was Jeremiah 29:11 (and it was my senior quote) and it is still is my favorite bible verse of all time. It’s truly a verse I use in every season of my life! Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

25 "Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27 And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? - Matthew 6:25-27

Jesus, I don’t want to be a do-gooder with my own agenda who arrives at the pearly gates only to wonder what real life is. Help me embrace the time it takes for you to reveal your will and guide me to it. Don’t let me create a false purpose for myself because I’m too impatient to wait. I want every step - waiting or running - to take me closer to you. AMEN

I want to do it all, and the only person telling me that I can’t is me. So, that’s why I literally write my goals down, with a deadline, and give myself a reward. As I work on building my health and wellness business, my career aspirations also include educating people about diversity, equity, and inclusion. My long term goal will be to do all of it (full time and on my own), so until then, I set my goals and smash them along the way. My reward will be a t shirt for the 8-week fitness program I completed from start to finish this past summer. Debating adding an extra something since I achieved this goal two weeks early! Some other rewards I have in mind include new bedding, and a balayage hair appt. What are some other good rewards I can work toward?? 😬 (honeymoon to Italy perhaps? Or how about just setting the date 🤷🏻‍♀️)

We are at the peak of all things fall, and we are relishing every moment. Except maybe those moments when I come home with (yet another) white pumpkin or two and my hubs gives me the side eye that inherently says “don’t we have enough pumpkins already??”. Is there such a thing?! No. Also, never mind that I haven’t given a thought to costumes yet. Gone are the days of cutesy matching costumes for my babes (which I absolutely loved). They all have their own ideas now of what they want to be (which I also love), and getting all four to agree on a theme is not happening. #chooseyourbattles I told the kids to get creative. Soooo....we shall see what the end result is! What do you enjoy most about this season??

In my early years I considered myself an introvert many many years later I completely came out of my shell and I now consider myself an extroverted introvert (Look it up it's a thing). My Sis taught me everything I know growing up, and now it's a blessing to be able to do that for her as far as exploring new places and trying new things. Thank you for trusting me to help bring you "Out of your shell" a little bit more. Thanks for being Both the Lorelei to my Rory, and the Camille to my Amma, Love you Sissy!

The thing that is really hard and really amazing is giving up on being perfect and beginning the work of becoming yourself. -Anna Quinndlen I’m all about self development- becoming who God intended & becoming the best leader i can become with the skill sets and gifts I’ve been given.. and that sometimes looks like looking straight into the face of all my flaws imperfections and insecurities, as well as my unique, beautiful, & creative soul. I’m loving all that I’m learning about the Enneagram, what number are you?

When you look in the mirror, what do you see? You may not see your worth, but God does. In fact, His love elevates you to the status of an honored monarch. That’s right, royalty! . No matter who you are or where you’ve been, even if you don’t feel worthy of being called God’s beloved, God crowns you with worth. . Sister, you may not believe that you’re worth His effort, but God thinks you are worth it. He sees you. He loves you. He wants you. So, bow your head in humility and feel Him crown you with love. . #66Ways #Redeemed #solovelysofree #belovedlife #goodnewsfeed #givemejesus #womenintheword #pursuewhatislovely #bedeeplyrooted

I've been getting lots of questions about our #debtfreejourney, so I thought I would try to start sharing more about it. We've been on the journey for a long time, but we're getting close to being #debtfree so we're finally to the exciting parts. (It wasn't very exciting in the beginning.) We're on track to be #debtfree in 7 months and while this is very exciting, this is probably the hardest season I've been in regarding it. Honestly, it's just emotional and I've been crying a lot. It's the feeling of coming so far and seeing the finish line and just trusting in God that He'll get us to the end.⠀ ⠀ This picture is a perfect represenation of our journey thus far. One bedroom apartment (walk-out basement style) in a multi-family home. We have one car, we cut nearly everything possible from our budget. For us, the fewer the line items the better, and we say no to a lot. ⠀ ⠀ We've been on this journey for 6.5 years.... since the day we got married. We've moved across the country twice. I was without work for half of those years and while there has been times where it feels painful, it's worth all the hard work and sacrafice. When we're done we will have paid off $140,000 in student loan debt. It was the only debt we had and we plan to never be in debt again. Not for a car, not for a trip, hopefully not even for a house. No debt ever again. Because we've had to work so hard to get this far we're rather passionate it about, haha! Pray along with us has we head to the finish line and if you're in your #debtfreejourney give me a shout so we can pray for you too! ⠀ ⠀

Mend me and mold me into the woman I need to be to fulfill the calling You have placed on my life and to live in More. Give me the strength to live each moment and every day in Your hope. Give me the words to spread Your light. Give me the grace, Lord, to speak with a gentle but fierce heart. You have given me a vision and purpose. You have predestined the plans before me. You have called me to live and reign in MORE, and I thank you for giving me everything I need to carry out Your plans. #rachellynettestudios

maybe it’s forgiving someone - an authoritative figure, an ex, maybe it’s yourself. because forgiveness doesn’t mean that what happened was okay - it nulls the effect of the past on your future. __________________________________ to me, forgiveness is freedom. what does forgiveness mean to you? __________________________________ [ part 3 of 7 ]

Being “disciple makers” is no small task and can be extremely intimidating in fear that we don’t know the Bible well or have all of the answers. But the beautiful thing about the Holy Spirit is that it empowers us with the tools we need to be a witness for the Kingdom of God. . . I wanted to explain the three tips that were shared at church yesterday. Simple and practical tips to living on mission in the places you “play.” I am going to focus on play for a few reasons. The first being, I no longer work in an office setting, so my days look much different now than they used to. Secondly, as a SAHM, I have the opportunity to play in public settings with my daughter and personally at the gym. So here goes. . . 1. Be Present - notice more than just your children. Be aware of the other kids and parents around you so that you can strike up a conversation. This may involve putting down your phone (speaking to myself). A simple two-minute conversation could be the start to a deep relationship over time and you just never know what others are going through. . . 2. Be Consistent - try your best to go to the same workout class each week, or go to the same park, or schedule a regular play date. Consistency is the key to any relationship, and it also allows for trust to be established. . . 3. Continue the conversation - if you were present and actively listening in the first conversations, it will allow you to pick up that same conversation the next day. This shows that other mama that you care and remember what she is going through. . . I loved how succinct and simple these tips were, yet it showed me that I can be more intentional in doing these things on a regular basis. I hope you find this to be a good reminder as you head to your next activity. . .

Unfortunately, our minivan didn’t quite complete her farewell voyage without incident. 🚐 She rolled to a stop in the middle of Iowa and we waved our white flag at her. Except, when you have three boys, you don’t bother owning much white...so our white flag doubles as Star Wars undies. 😂 Her repairs cost more than her value, so we’re laying her to rest. She’s given everything she’s got, and I hope I can say the same at the end of my life. 🙏🏼 The kids and I rented a car and we’re headed north. The kids aren’t too disappointed to miss a day of school. 📚 😉 Jacob’s headed south to pick up our new van in KC...because that’s where all good things come from. 😉💙 This whole exeperience just reminded me how blessed we are to have such supportive family who will drop all of their plans and send not only one, but two cars to pick us up (because our family is too big for one), call in favors from mechanic friends on a Sunday night, put us up for yet another night...and all the while, smile and admit that this adventure has been kinda fun for them too. 😜🙏🏼 I could tell you 672 things that went wrong on this trip, but I’m keeping my eyes fixed on the one big thing that went right, and that’s all that matters. ❤️ . . . . . #gratitudeeveryday #abeautifulmess #momlife #savedbygrace #belovedlife #midwestgirl #motherhoodrising #livetoday #happiness #adventure #liveoutloud #lifeisagift #joyfulheart #journey #happiest

This past week Jude & Sarah have hardly had a spare second to sit down, have a cuppa and chat. In those early days they spent an enormous amount of time planning, brainstorming and dreaming of when we ‘get bigger’. And here we are. Bigger! But not too big. Just a nice big. Where we still know our stockists’ names. Where Jude or Sarah still answer the phone. Where each product is still made by hand. It’s just the right fit for us. . . . . #olieveandolie #ecohome #beautyshopper #skincareblogger #naturalliving #organicshop #handcraftedwithlove #madelocal #australianskincare #mornpen #factorystore #essentialoil #antiagingskincare #artisanlife #giftsforher #consciousconsumer #rejuvenate #detoxtime #instaorganic #creativeatheart #carepackage #iloveyoumelbourne #ohwowyes #flashesofdelight #belovedlife #lovemyfambam #fambamtime #mumsthebest #fambamlove #thankfulforfamily

Day 2. What’s in Your Hand? • This photo was snapped during a session that was special to me. While being Conference Coordinator involved a ton of logistics on top of logistics... on top of even more logistics 😂 - this session is where I got to see my own creativity during Rick’s message! We had a sculptor, photographer, graphic designer, and keyboardist on stage creating in their own unique ways throughout Rick’s message, and it was an idea that came about in a brainstorming session with our @saddlebackvisualarts pastor, @jasonleithart, a few weeks ago. It modeled artistic practice being employed in church, collaboration between different art forms, using art to support your message in new ways, and valuing each person’s individual craft. It was significant to see my creative ideas come to life, even while I continued in the behind-the-scenes work I was called, gifted, and privileged to do for this conference. In every way, this experience has been a memorable one. #CreativeChurchConference

until you heal the wounds of your past, you are going to bleed. you can bandage the bleeding with food, with alcohol, with drugs, work, sex; but eventually, it will overflow and stain your life. __________________ if you don’t heal from those who hurt you, you’ll bleed on people who never cut you. you must find the strength to open your wounds, stick your hands inside, pull out the core of the pain that is holding you in your past, surrender it to Christ and let Him direct your steps on your healing journey. mayb- [ part 1 of 7 ]

✨IN MY FEELINGS✨ ___________________________ when your mind settles into a negative headspace, don’t meditate on the whispers of the enemy. tell it to align with the Word of God. ___________________________ Romans 8:6 for the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life + peace ___________________________ 2 Corinthians 5:7 we walk by faith, not by sight ( my eyes above what it looks like, my faith beyond what it feels like ) ___________________________ Colossians 3:2 set your mind on things above ___________________________ Proverbs 3:5-6 trust in the LORD with all your heart, don’t lean on your own understanding ___________________________ Philippians 4:7 and the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts + minds in Christ.

if we don’t sow the seeds, how are we expected to reap the harvest? - being someone who is multi-passionate/ multi-visioned / burned out / simply stressed out, there are two types of days you can have: . [ day 01 ] . when your goals + tasks overlap, you’re killing like three birds with one stone, and you end the day feeling like a boss. - however . [ day 02 ] . when you have very different hustle tracks with the same due date, ur heart and mind get tugged in multiple direction, you feel overwhelmed. - what can you control though? ———————————————————————— . your grit . your perseverance . your discipline . your b a l a n c e - take some time tonight to check in with yourself. how’s your heart? where’s your focus? can you delegate some things? ———————————————————————— even within stressful situations, the peace of God that “surpasses all understanding” will guard your heart + minds in Christ Jesus. ———————————————————————— much love peeps x, bella
