Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations. This one in particular heads to our family’s favorite place to get away from it all: Washington Island, WI. #doorcounty #travel #wisconsin #potd #winter #roadtrip

I used to dread the impending winter each year... the changing colors of the leaves reminded me of the death of sunshine. The crisp cold air made my bones hurt. I have found that in a journey to find myself, I have found to actually look forward to and enjoy this change of seasons. The changing colors now remind me that old things must pass away to make room for new. Instead of running from the cool crisp air, I pull myself closer to my husband’s embrace and enjoy every refreshing second. There is beauty all around me, and I’m so thankful for every fallen leaf and every impending fallen snowflake. Experiencing these seasons with my husband and kids close by my side is my EVERYTHING. My only regret was ever trying to chase the sunshine in the first place. I didn’t need to fill my winter calendar each year with travel to warmer climates to find it - it was always right here! #potd #instafall #fall #wisconsin #seasonchange #thoughts

Oh Levi! You are JUST like your daddy. You are passionate about Jesus, have a kind and sensitive heart, and you have the most incredible intelligent mind. Every time I think I couldn’t be prouder of the young man you are becoming, you go and make me more proud of you. I’m so excited for all of the wonderful things that God has in store for you, little man. You will do BIG things. Today we celebrate YOU!! Welcome to the double digits, bud!! Happy HAPPY 10th birthday! ❤️

“Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s okay. The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind.” – Anthony Bourdain . . I definitely left a big piece of my heart behind in Neply, Haiti. #travel #haiti #visithaiti #bittersweet #quotes #anthonybourdain #potd #instagood #instatravel #travelphotography

Reintegration is rough. . . Last week while I was in Haiti, I was filled with joy and light, and all of the stresses of everyday life were nowhere to be found. There is something about Haiti that will have you living in the moment and feeling thankful and grateful for the simplest things. There is joy and love everywhere you look, and it spreads like wild fire. This is not the kind of peace that you can easily find while in the United States. . . But, from the moment we landed in Chicago airport, the weight of life in America settled down like a load of bricks on my shoulders. The worry, stress, and anxiety of our busyness is overwhelming. We fill our lives with so much stress and STUFF, it makes us unable to even see the most important things. We are constantly so distracted from the things that we should be focusing on, and it is robbing us of our joy! . . #haiti #mission #mylifespeaks #travel #traveltuesday #potd #joy #love #reflection #visithaiti

26 suitcases filled to the brim and packed tight with donations for the people of Neply, Haiti thanks to the generous donations of friends, family, and community!! We’re talking formula, diapers, medical supplies, vitamins, and so so much more! We are a fully-funded team of 13 ready to show the love of Jesus and be His hands and feet! Praise God for providing everything that we need to prepare for this trip and going forward!! Please continue to pray over our group and this trip, that we are prepared to do His work, that the people we encounter will be ready to receive, and that everyone we meet will see us but praise God because of his goodness and faithfulness. #calledtoserve #called #haiti #mylifespeaks #neply #mission #missiontrip #sharinglove #love #potd #travel #travelgram

Oh Shem. You are such a wild child, filled to the brim with personality. You don’t even know just how much you make my heart smile. ❤️ I am forever grateful that God chose me to be your mommy and that he knew exactly what I needed, but gave me so much more with you. #son #myheart #family #potd #kidsofinstagram #kids #theflash #littleman

It’s the first day of school for the Smithlets, and we are SO excited to start the new year in a fresh new homeschool room! BIG things happening this year and we can’t wait to see how we all grow and learn together as a family! . . . Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.

I suffered for many years before doctors could figure out what was wrong with me - when I was diagnosed, many doctors weren’t even aware of this auto-immune disease. #spreadawareness #icawareness #interstitialcystitis #ic
