You Are Precious In My Eyes and I Love You

Hey Y’all! I’m here on the blog today to let y’all know about the back story for our “Precious, Honored, Loved” Valentine’s Day raglan. A few years back I was doing a bible study on Isaiah. Have y’all ever done a study and a verse hit you so hard that you carried it with you? Well this is what happened to me. I was smacked in my soul with this verse and it has been with me since. Precious, honored, and loved is a very shortened version of Isaiah 43:4 which says  “Since you are precious in My sight, Since...

Happy Birthday to Me... I Think

After a crazy morning I am in the studio and I’m thinking about the fact my birthday is here. I am a whopping 35 year old. The big 3-5. THIRTY FIVE. I’ve never had an issue with my birthday.

Letting Go Of “Perfect”

As much as I try I always find myself striving for perfect. Now striving to do well and to be the best version of you is a great thing. But I do wonder if my perception of perfect is realistic. To be honest what I am striving for is what I see on social media. I see pictures of beautiful families with their beautiful kids all matchy matchy at church on Sundays. I see gorgeous bright white kitchens with freshly cut flowers and the perfect cup of coffee on the counter. I see pictures of amazingly organized playrooms with vibrant...

Finding Joy Through It All

There is a song by Rend Collective that says “the joy of the Lord is my strength”. This song is kind of my life mantra. Have you every looked around at your circumstance?
