chateaualamode Once upon a time there was a little girl who wanted to take art lessons because she loved making things and in this class she was told she was not an artist. Her work wasn't good. At least in her 9 year old mind that was what she heard. She gave up on anything creative or any kind of art because someone told her she wasn't good at it.
Well fast forward sometime later and the little girl fell in love with cooking and realized that the kitchen could be her canvas. She felt feel to create there. From there she became more confident and started to decorate her home on a budget and made it beautiful. She took pleasure in her home, entertaining and cooking and realized that maybe she was creative. Maybe that teacher had been wrong. Now that little girl inside of me has grown confident and has started creating beautiful jewelry and gained enough confidence to open my own Etsy store and from there I have fallen in love with photography. It looks like the little girl that was once told she wasn't an artist grew into a woman that is full of creativity.
Never let anyone tell you that you can't do something. Don't let anyone tell your children that they can't do something. Believe in yourself. God created us in His image and just look around at the beauty He created. He must have made all of us artists. Each unique in our own ways.

chateaualamode Hallelujah! Just to speak His name is praise! Just to remember God is a blessing -- now and tomorrow and always. From east to west, from dawn to dusk, keep lifting all your praises to God!
Psalm 113:1-3
Long ago I was taught that when I pray I should start with praising God. Remembering who He is so that when you started your requests things would either seem not so important, or would feel like there is nothing He couldn't answer, nothing He couldn't handle. Remember who you are praying to is perfect, all wise, makes no mistakes, has no boundries, all knowing, all powerful, holy and completely faithful. Just to name a few, and to think sometimes I think I know better...

chateaualamode How happy is my heart right now! My son is home from college and he and his sister are filling out their brackets for March Madness. The house fills whole again when they are all home! Tonight we're home watching basketball and getting caught up with stories that we have missed. Hubby is BBQing a Tri Tip, I made cheesy potatoes and veggies to grill. Life is soooo good ️ Oh and just because I keep it real...that white, crumpled ball behind my son's head is a dirty pair of socks!!! #keepingitreal 1w

chateaualamode What a blessing to be a guest last night at my friend Lisa's beautiful home. Not only was I blessed by the gorgeous table and delicious food but also blessed by the gift of friendship. There were 8 of us around that table last night breaking bread and eating and laughing and enjoying each other. But it goes even deeper...we are women who pray together for our children, our lives and each other. We each come from different backgrounds and unique places but we are bonded as sisters in Christ. We have cried, laughed and been strengthened by each over the many years. They are my forever friends, my prayer warriors, my sisters, and I am beyond grateful for each and every one of them. 2w

chateaualamode Starting to fall madly in love with photography ;) Took this in Malibu about a month ago. For some reason while I'm flipping through my beach pics this song is playing in my head over and over:
Salvation sounds a new beginning//As distant hearts begin believing//Redemption's bid is unrelenting//Your love goes on//Your love goes on-------------------You carry us//Carry us//When the world gives way//You cover us//Cover us//With your endless grace--------
Happy Wednesday all. Hope you let yourself feel God's grace today.
Hillsong's Acoustic video on YouTube is amazing, just sayin'. Give it a watch there. #Hillsong

chateaualamode And this is the real and eternal life:
That they know you,
The one and only true God,
And Jesus Christ, who you sent.
John 17:3
The real meaning of eternal life is a life that can face anything it has to face without wavering. If we will take this view, life will become one great romance--a glorious opportunity of seeing wonderful things all the time. God is disciplining us to get us into this central place of power. From My Utmost for His Highest.
Needing to get my act together on perseverance. Needing to remember it means more than holding on until the end. I need faith to know that God might be aiming for something I cannot see and if I stay with him until the end he will stretch me in places I never knew I could stretch and when his purpose is in sight that's when he will let me go, sailing strongly into the task at hand.

chateaualamode On International Women's Day I say to my daughters and friends...
Remember God created you to be sensitive, wise, gracious and strong. When you are following after Him He will give you the desires of your heart. So follow after those dreams and never stop. He has such wonderful things for you if you trust him. With God on your side, no one can be against you! Run towards your dreams even when you're scared, even when they don't seem possible. You are both strong women and with God by your side this life will be pretty amazing!

chateaualamode This photo I found on Pinterest makes me happy. I would love to live in this little cottage and come out and pick herbs for whatever I was making. Wouldn't it be fun to have everything fresh you could ever want right outside your door?Going out shopping for a container to start an herb garden. Do any of you grow your own herbs? What are your favorites? What should I start with? 3w
