alyssaeakin Happy "Found Ya" Day, to this handsome, silly and cuddly Obi man.
Thanks to McDonalds fries and Club crackers, we were able to make a trail into our yard and catch this fur ball. After two weeks of him living on the streets in the midst of storms and floods, we were able to catch him and give him all of the love (and food) he deserved! He's not very graceful and he can't really catch things (yet) but he has the best cuddles and can shake better than any dog I know.
Cheers to Obi! You've come so far.

alyssaeakin Many people see me as a crazy dog lady or just obsessed but it's so much more than just liking dogs or animals. Each dog we welcome into our home and hearts teaches me something new. Fostering, in particular, has taught me so many lessons. Each time it opens my heart even more. It challenges me, it stretches me and it reminds me that I'm not here on earth for myself but here to love God's people and creatures with all that I have. To help give second chances and be a voice for those that cannot speak for themselves. I challenge you to find someone or something that challenges you in life and love. 7d

alyssaeakin This hottie and I have been married for 15 months now. We've been incredibly blessed these past 3 months...we have grown so much in who we are in the Spirit which has led us to fall even more in love with each other. Thankful to be loved by such a wonderful hunk of a man. #tbt 2w

alyssaeakin This is what happens when you had a really great but exhausting weekend and you need sleep but you've gotta adult instead...
You grab what you thought was your wedding band.
Ps. I'm not trying to start a new trend. #monday

alyssaeakin This past Sunday J and I got to host both of our families and celebrate our moms together.
Most just see a banner but to me it's a reminder of answered prayers.
For years, I prayed for my future husband and his heart. Not only did I pray for him but I prayed for his family. I prayed that his family would be filled with the Spirit. I prayed that my future husband's family and my family would be able to do life and celebrate life together.
And I prayed that his family would accept me and love me.
God not only answered my prayers but he blew my prayers and dreams out of the water.
I have the BEST husband and our families love us and each other so dang well.
He provides so much more and better than we could ever do for ourselves.
I promise your prayers are heard...keep praying, allow God to move and have a receptive heart.
He might not answer when or how you expect Him to but He will provide something far better than you could ever imagine.

alyssaeakin “Her children rise up and call her blessed..." I am so thankful for these three women. They are full of grace and so many other wonderful gifts. They love their families hard and serve so well.
Thank you, Mom, for all of the love you gave and sacrifices you've made throughout your life to give me the best life.
Thank you, Mama, for loving me, spoiling me and constantly looking for ways to serve me and Jacob. You're the best grandma ever.
Thank you, Connie, for raising such a strong man of God for me to marry and love and thank you for opening up your heart to me and welcoming me into your family.
Thank you, God, for my moms and their love.

alyssaeakin What do you get when you get home late and you haven't eaten dinner but the only food you have is hamburger meat and cheese? You get the most selfless man ever grilling at 11 pm. Husband of the year and hotter than that grill 1mon
