alyssaclarisse My favorite word, my favorite noun, my favorite gift. On the cross I was given grace as an innocent man's blood was shed to pay my debt. At my lowest point I was given grace as God opened my eyes to His glory and drew me close. Daily I depend on grace as a depraved sinner, striving to live a righteous and godly life pleasing to my Father. By grace I was given my faith, I was given the ability to believe, behold, worship, and love my creator wildly. By grace I was saved, and by grace I live fully. I am overwhelmed with gratitude for His blessing on my life, it's truly undeserved and beautiful. (thank you @swrj for the amazing gift of light in my home!) #grace #love #graceupongrace #light #gratefulheart 8h

alyssaclarisse hey y'all, just a little heads up about the new adventure I'm embarking on! I have created an account that will be dedicated to sharing all the amazing results and benefits of the products I now sell through ItWorks! This IG has grown with me since I found out I was pregnant with my little man, and I want to keep it as personal as possible, for me and for my followers. If you're interested at all in becoming a customer to simply transform your health, or a distributor like me and transform your finances as well let me know! Join me on this journey, let's be life giving together! 15h

  •   nbern GREAT choice! ️ this! And so often, "dead" teachers / those Saints who have gone before us are the best! I continue to be so encouraged by your life, heart, ministry and what the Lord is doing in and through your life! Keep is up, sister, and enjoying drinking deeply from Romans! 2d

alyssaclarisse I am naturally a skeptic, and I typically need things proven to me in order to really stand behind them. I have read countless stories and seen tons of photos of bodies and lives changed with ItWorks! products, and as the results started coming from personal friends and acquaintances I couldn't ignore them any longer. I knew I needed these products in my life, and the choice to not only become a customer but also a distributor was the easiest decision to make. I've seen amazing stories of women who have transformed not only their health, but their financial lives as well. When I realized these were real women, local women just like me, I realized it was time to take a step in faith and start on the path to changing my future not only for myself, but for Oliver as well. This is a new journey for me, but God has given me a peace about it all and I hope some of you will not only join me, but start on your own journeys as well! Go read the stories of the women I have tagged, and decide for yourself if what this company has to offer is something your life could use. If anyone is interested I also have a few single body wraps and am selling them at $25 each, it would really help me start out on this adventure if you would purchase one and take before and after photos of your results for my portfolio, let me know if you'd like to help! Thank you 100 times to the lovely @ccarp_ because without her kindness, generosity, and encouragement I wouldn't be on my way to great health and financial freedom to truly enjoy the one precious life I've been given. Let's be life giving y'all! #greens #letsbelifegiving #plantbased 3d

alyssaclarisse Came home to an unexpected package in my mail containing a book I have been wanting for quite some time by one of my favorite theologians. The book of a Romans is one of my favorites, and one I've read and studied with God countless times. My awesome boyfriend remembered my mention of this book and surprised me, so thank you my love! You know the way to my heart and I'm so thankful for you! #Romans #JohnMurray #EpistletotheRomans #bible #theology #learnallthethings 4d

alyssaclarisse "I read the headlines and I am overwhelmed with sadness, but also with thankfulness. Each and every time a black child makes the news after being killed, I am grateful to be white. I'm relieved that my children are white. That's a very hard thing to admit. Why? Because it goes against everything I've been taught. There's nothing wrong with being black, right? So why am I so happy to be white? No. It is 2015 and we can pretend that since we have a black president, we are free from racism. Privilege. It's a strange thing to feel so thankful to be white. It's odd to be so overwhelmed with emotion at the thought of the safety you take for granted because of the color of your skin. It's uncomfortable to realize the pain and anger and fear your fellow mothers who are raising black children must feel." // Unpacking my white privilege this morning and feeling sick to my stomach. I keep seeing things about how all these black men who have been killed would be alive if they had "just made better choices", and while I do understand in some cases that's true, it doesn't cancel out the underlying discrimination and oppression people of color experience over all. There are things that as a young white woman, with a blonde haired blue eyed son, I will never be able to understand. There are struggles I will never be able to grasp. There is a level of privilege based strictly on my skin color that I am undeserving of. It's humbling to have your pride and position wrecked by God. To have your heart broken for the things that break His heart. To feel wrung out by God, and have all those little wrong ways of thinking exposed. Black lives matter, police lives matter, the rioters lives matter, ALL LIVES MATTER. The Imago Dei principle says we are all created in the image of God, and therefore all equal and all of value. This stands regardless of race, gender, background, talent, sexual orientation, or lifestyle. The worst thing we can do is hide behind our technology and judge others. We're all more depraved than we could ever imagine, and loved beyond anything we could ever deserve. #whiteprivilege #alllivesmatter #baltimoreriots #ImagoDei #depravedyetloved #mattchandler 5d

alyssaclarisse I want to invite you into a new journey with me.
What do you chase with your life?
We Chase Glory is a call to become aware of what we are chasing: to be a boundless pursuer of the fullness of life. And this is not just a call to road trip and travel… although I am a total supporter, this is a call to live the abundant, over-flowing with milk & honey, bursting at the seams, wake up each day glowing… life.

alyssaclarisse "The deepest root of Christian womanhood is hope in God. “Holy women who hoped in God.” A Christian woman does not put her hope in her husband, or in getting a husband. She does not put her hope in her looks. She puts her hope in the promises of God. She is described in Proverbs 31:25: “Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she laughs at the time to come.” She laughs at everything the future will bring and might bring, because she hopes in God." // Going into this new season of adventure with all my hope in its rightful place with my creator. All my trust and belief is in the one who hung the stars and gave them light, for He is capable of great things. I will plant the seeds and provide the water, but only He can make things grow, only He can bring dead and dormant things to life according to his perfect purpose and will. Lord I'm ready, I'm willing, I'm humble, I'm yours, use me. #sweeterbolderfreer 6d
  •   littlehouseonhansen @alyssaclarisse this is one of my favorite sermons by John Piper. I have this written throughout the pages of my journal to remind me to strive after becoming the woman of Proverbs 31. You are an example of it 6d
  •   alyssaclarisse @littlehouseonhansen mine too! I admire so many things about Piper and his ability to speak on womanhood the way he does is one of them! That is such a huge compliment, thank you dear. You're an example of a Proberbs 31 woman as well! I love seeing strong women of God living out their faith and carrying Gods glory well :) 6d

alyssaclarisse "Come on Austin, come mommy's house!" // Long distance is hard. We both miss this man dearly and can't wait until we can see him again. Only 23 days until he's back in FL, and hopefully not much longer until we're permanently in PA. Pray alongside us in this next season y'all, there's lots of planning, saving, and organizing coming up. Lots of hard work, but I know it will be worth it in the end to start this new chapter of our life together. I mean, look at that smile, I can't believe I snagged such an incredible, loving, godly, handsome man. Love you babe @imawesomeaustin, you're the best and I'm so lucky! #a1180a #MCM #mancrushmonday #adventuremerging #mancrushrestofmylife # 7d

alyssaclarisse I have the most thoughtful and kind boyfriend in the world. He remembered a comment I made about his friend's "Godfidence" shirt and how much I liked it, and guess what I just got in the mail?! Along with the sweetest note that started with the line "you deserve the world, so here's a t-shirt to start!" God has blessed me beyond with this man and the love we share. Thank you my dear for always reminding me of my true identity in Christ and the freedom that comes with being unoffendable and living for God instead of for myself. I'm incredibly grateful I get to do life with you and I'm so looking forward to spending the rest of my life with you by my side. I love you! #a1180a #Godfidence #unoffendable #beyondblessed 1w

alyssaclarisse You mean to tell me your church doesn't have storm troopers that dance to N*Sync songs...? I had so much fun at Infuse! Feeling incredibly blessed to be a part of this church, and grateful for the Holy Spirit's presence in that room tonight speaking directly to my heart on some things.
