brandyjanemabel A mother's soul is the book of life a child will read. A mother cannot pass on to her children what she herself does not possess. That is why a mother must always be a student - always learning, reading, studying scripture, listening to people who are older and wiser, investing in her own soul so that children may have much to draw from... |sally clarkson| #_raising 7d

brandyjanemabel Creating home.. It's not really about the furniture and decor at the end of the day.. I want this to be a place that brings us together, makes us feel safe, and can be a haven for us. I pray Gods presence would be so evident here to us and those that would gift us with their company. It doesn't always feel quite homey with boxes still dispersed around and many unfinished pieces, but then there glimpses of what is to come.. His goodness, here with us. 2w

brandyjanemabel Our home here is only about half the size of our last home in Alberta. I'm not complaining. It is more than enough. And if you know anything about the greater Vancouver market, you will know we feel blessed to have what we have. We drove out here for five days in February and put six offers in on other places and were out bid on every one. Our realtor kept on the search, and we bought this place basically sight unseen knowing it needed to be renovated (we beat out 5 other offers). I see God's goodness and grace all over this place. This yard may be smaller, but oh that light. I'm able to make this place ours. Our home. (And there's shiplap on the inside 🏻.. I'm sure I'll post some soon) 1mon

brandyjanemabel I wish I could say I didn't panic watching my kids climb this even though they did amazing.. Need to get braver.. Every new place we visit leaves me more in awe with the fact that I get to live here.. #whytecliffpark 2mon

brandyjanemabel Earth with joy confesses, clothing her for spring,
All fresh gifts returned with her returning King:
Bloom in every meadow, leaves on every bough,
Speak his sorrow ended, hail his triumph now.

Thou, of life the Author, death didst undergo,
Tread the path of darkness, saving strength to show;
Come then, True and Faithful, now fulfill thy word,
'Tis thine own third morning! rise, O buried Lord.

brandyjanemabel We started a nature collection.. It's beautiful to see my children appreciate creation.. Although each piece this one gathers from the ground seems to be bigger than the last lol.. #shebringsjoywherevershegoes 2mon

brandyjanemabel Get out from your house, from your cave, from your car. Get out from the place you feel safe, from the place that you are. Get out and go running, go funning, go wild. Get out from your head, get growing, dear child. ||Dallas Clayton|| #mycoen 2mon

brandyjanemabel When grandma leaves.. I'm so proud of my kids. Through all of this they have been so brave. There are tough moments though. As we walk through them, however, I feel as though these times are weaving our family together even closer. Gratitude comes with every goodbye. Grateful for each moment spent on us. #shebringsjoywherevershegoes 2mon

  •   klinic1982 It's never goodbye...see you laterand there's Skype and FaceTime...not the same but so much better than I had as a kid when my grandparents were out east and we are west. My kids loved talking to them on Skype. It was a blessing more times than I can count. But it's still hard. I agree -God weaves your family closer. Much love! @brandyjanemabel 2mon
  •   brandyjanemabel @klinic1982 so much love to you my friend 2mon
