chantal_wiebe We are packing up for one more week at the cabin and I'm reminded that how we fill our homes matters. We've been long-time supporters of @eq3_furniture because they manufacture in my hometown and they carry Canadian upholstery. I cannot wait to get the new catalog, which is always shot locally! #lovewhereyoulive #notsponsored #eq3FW15 1d
  •   charles_venzon xo 1d
  •   mariaandadrian I wish my pocketbook loved EQ3 as much as I do... they have such beautiful stuff!!! 1d
  •   thelivery.co That is where all of our furniture in our house is from! What a great cleaning and replacement policy (especially for having kids). Can you go knock on their Door and see if my office shelving unit is off back order yet . Just kidding, they told me September when I ordered it. A lesson in patience. 1d
  •   chantal_wiebe @mariaandadrian they sure do! 1d
  •   chantal_wiebe @thelivery.co us too! My office desk is one of my favourite things! I also have their modular bookcase and just to change it up flipped it on its side recently and love it that way too! Ah yes, at least September isn't far away! 1d

chantal_wiebe Hey #fridayintroductions 🏼️ I'm Chantal. A writer currently wrangling word magic for brands like @storynashville + @amae.co (and another to be announced soon!) I'm naturally grey, raising boys on our Canadian prairie acreage, totally imperfect, and His. This year has left its mark on me and I'm making a run for Him in the deepest parts of my heart. Meet me for tea, and you'll hear it all. But for now, know that I'm writing it out, slowly and tearfully, while wandering outside the walls of my lip-service love for the first time in years. I used to write for someone to publish me. Now I write to pursue Him. And I wouldn't have it any other way. #rileyclaydesigns 2d

chantal_wiebe I haven't always been certain how I feel about zoos. Fortunately, ours just rescued orphan polar bears and seeing them swim above us really was amazing. But then the zoo keepers appeared at our side today exclaiming with parental pride that we were witnessing the first swim of the newest one, Star. People caring for animals, not just caging them. That is pure magic. And that just made my day. #assiniboineparkzoo #exploremb 2d

chantal_wiebe Today as I prepare my home for hosting family dinner, I am reminded of this: "The Master said, “Martha, dear Martha, you’re fussing far too much and getting yourself worked up over nothing. One thing only is essential, and Mary has chosen it—it’s the main course, and won’t be taken from her.” Luke 10: 41-42 MSG 🏼 Focus on Him and fuss less. #thrivewhereistand 3d
  •   krystalmariani @chantal_wiebe The funny thing is... I was listening to a message this morning where it was talking about the same verse and same message-as what you're posting about! Lol crazy eh? Haha maybe God's trying to tell me something.. Less cookie baking! lol 3d
  •   chantal_wiebe @krystalmariani I don't want to at not to cookies tho! but more seriously, I know how flustered I can get and I just need to do what I can but not at the expense of hearing Him🏼 3d
  •   herwelshness Love you mama 3d
  •   chantal_wiebe @herwelshness gotta remember Him first in all my work. 3d
  •   betty_buhler Wish this was easier for me :( 3d
  •   jenny3pm Yesss 2d

chantal_wiebe Instead of patience, I pushed my washer door a little too truthful to my boiling emotions last week. And then it stopped working. The door latch was permanently locked. I actually laughed out loud. Because that is the cost of anger. It closes everybody up and shuts them all down. Myself more than anyone. But instead of self-pity, my go-to problem, I focused on self-compassion. With a little video from @youtube I literally took my machine apart and fixed. it. myself. Seriously. I hope you never have to see this piece in your hand after a childish bout of frustration. But if you do, know that with a little help, you can fix it. And you'll never be happier to have another load of laundry waiting to be folded again. 🏼 #fieldnotesonfreshstarts #bringingbackthevillage 4d

chantal_wiebe "I need Him and I have no idea how to talk to Him". This is my piece on prayer for @tapestrymagazine coming this fall. It scared me to bits but the invitation to write how I'm wandering my overgrown heart (in an issue that happens to be titled 'cultivate') has changed me. And I can't wait to share it with you. #letsbewoven #thrivewhereistand 5d

chantal_wiebe I want us all to fly together a little more. Dish out less crow. Be fearless in our formation. Because if there is any way to live, it's like a flock. So here's to reposting love for the women who help us soar. @mytinytribe has words of wisdom and courage and incredible insight too. She's growing her tribe but also every soul that hears her story through Bell's Palsy and the special girls she's been given. 🏼 #livelikeaflock 5d

chantal_wiebe Bedtime reading (as chosen by my boys) was 25 brain freezing facts about ice cream. Did you know that the number one flavour of ice cream in North America is vanilla? Vanilla!! This made me stop and think. Maybe I need to start taking more risks. Stop the safe vanilla life and break out into pistachio and salted caramel, perhaps? Or at least jump in a few more puddles in my life and disrupt my ideas about daring greatly and the likelihood of getting dirty. (Hint: it's 100%). #goforit #theliverylife 6d

chantal_wiebe It rained and thundered most of yesterday and after unloading the vehicle in a downpour, helping me make soup, and settling us all in, this guy was still willing to talk a walk with me! Small gestures make for big love. And gratitude. #gratitudechangeseverything #exploremb 1w

chantal_wiebe G. K. Chesterton once said that "a thing must be loved before it is lovable." In my most personal of shortcomings, loving first isn't my strength. I usually wait at the edge for the murky ugliness to settle down before stepping up. This only makes the problem deeper and more longstanding. And one relationship in particular is suffering tremendously because of it. But if I wade in when the moment first calls for it, willingly and with all I have, that might just change everything. Because the only way to live on this earth is to love the mud it makes. #gritandvirtue #thebreadandrepose #givemejesus 1w

chantal_wiebe I might have missed another week for #fridayintroductions but we did get a date night and mange to send the boys ahead to the lake without us! Now I'm listening to the rain tea in hand, all together and taking it easy. After the kind of week it's been, this is just what we needed. #lakelife #greyfordays #darlingweekend 1w
