Day seven: {someone who inspires me} My Mom. She has overcome so much in her lifetime... She endured becoming a widow at the age of 39 with three kids to raise. She dealt with the agony of having a son in bondage to drug addiction and the disappointment of a daughter getting pregnant in high school. She endured the heartbreak of losing a son when my brother was tragically killed in a car accident. Her strength amazes me and her walk with the Lord inspires me to want more of Him. I'm so blessed to have her living example of God's sustaining grace. #photoadaymay

Morning coffee talk with momma. Today’s topic: fashion
“ Oh in high school I wore Capezios. I’d save my money up to buy them because they had the softest leather. And the lower they came on your toes the better. You wanted toe cleavage. If I had to walk fast anywhere I had to scrounge my toes in to keep my shoes on.”
Also swapping stories of shopping through the years at Norman Haiks and having Ms Yvonne wait on you. #youareGawgeous (If you were raised in St Tammany Parish you know what I’m talking about) #theholdenholidays
Let the laughing til you cry/ everybody talking at once/ cut throat board games marathons/ embarrassing family stories/ cooking for days/ eating til you pop / grandkid kissing/ all my family under one glorious roof goodness BEGIN! 💛💛 #roadtrippin #theholdenholidays #theadventuresofhoneyandloni

Really wishin I had some more of these leftover leftovers right about now. Don’t ask me what it is though. I just dump stuff in and sometimes I hit a home run, and sometimes I strike out. This one was like World Series good so I’m thinking of naming it “Altuve”.
Jumbo shrimp, spinach, garlic, fresh Parmesan, butter and heavy whipping cream for the win. #honeys💛kitchen

So I finished up this book @dancestandrun this weekend and it has made me want to run/dance through the streets shouting “I’m a daughter of the King! I GET to read His word! I GET to talk to Him every day in prayer! I GET to serve Him and love people! I am redeemed! I. LOVE. THIS. LIFE!” I honestly had visions of the movie Enchanted, where Giselle is dancing through Central Park singing contagiously and confidently, with wild abandonment about True Love. And it caused people from all walks of life, nationalities, ages and vocations to drop what they’re doing and join in with her.
That’s what this book did for my soul. It reminded me of all I've been given in Christ and makes me want to live it out with confidence and joy, while hopefully causing others to join in with me in this life we’ve been so graciously given.🙌🏻😭
Get you a copy. Whether you’re a new believer just beginning to discover all of God’s goodness or one who has walked with the Lord for years...your soul will be nourished and blessed.
Thank you Jess for your obedience, transparency and vulnerability. I know this message is helping many step into the abundant life Jesus came to give us. May He continue to use you to cause spiritual flash mobs of freed up believers all across this nation(and World) who are dancing in His grace, standing firm in holiness and running on mission! 🙌🏻

Remember that craft me and the girls started when we were at Lauren’s? Yeah,well we decided to play board games and shop and Netflix and stuff, which means it never got finished. 😬 Which means I brought them all home and had to finish them myself. 😑 Which means momma had to recruit some help. And my recruit was not a “happy crafter.” #swipe 😝 #dadoftheyear
Can you guess whose is who?
Also, gold leaf is kinda like grown up glitter. And now I want to gilt all the things. ✨✨✨
**edited for diy details: I just searched gold gilted Christmas ball ornament and several easy to follow tutorials popped right up. Basically swirl paint in clear glass ornaments then add gold leaf according to instructions. (Adhesive size, then gold leaf, then sealer) 💛

When your camera self timer app on your phone catches your surprise of hearing an actual voice counting down instead of the usual three short beeps. Updates can be scary. That’s my “Wait. What is happening?” face. 😂 #honeyandthepreacher
Ps. That is primer on our exterior brick. Eeeep! 😬🙈😍 Finally finishing up the last part of the #GraceUponGraceParsonageReno.

The remnants of what was once our garden got bush hogged yesterday. But not before the preacher salvaged the very, very last of the zinnias in the midst of the weeds.😍(and one shocking bushel of bell peppers we didn’t even know was still in there. #holla)
Soaking up their sweetness while I sip my third cup of coffee and wrap up the very last bit of a book I’ve been purposely slow reading so it’s life giving words sink in real good. #dancestandrun
Basically, savoring this easy going Saturday morning with a heart of gratitude. 🙌🏻 #capturingourblessings #getaftergrateful

We saw. We came. We conquered. (Except for the guacamole at lunch. It’s safe to say it conquered us.🙅🏻‍♀️) But Laura dominated the shoe department, we both sniffed every candle in Tjmaxx and wound up, once again, with another matching outfit in our closets.👯‍♀️ #alltheusualstuff
Thankful for this dear friend who pursues me even in the midst of her busy. I’m learning so much from her. Stuff to buy everything you have in your buggy instead of putting half of it back in the checkout line. 🙊 But mostly...that friendships are worth the effort it takes to cultivate them. #thankful #preacherswivesclub

So according to the sweet young cashier at ToysRUs yesterday, this is my “Rocker chick...oh, but classy rocker chick” look. 😬#notnecessarilywhatiwasgoingfor #butilltakeit 🤘🏼
In other news I discovered a super cute boutique for us glamazons.💃🏼It’s called @lucyandcocurvy and their stuff is darling. Hence my classy rocker chick velvet vest. (use the code Honey15 for 15 % when you shop) #bam 👊🏻#wearingwhatweloveandlovingwhatwewear #bitohoneystyle

I had already pre-ordered my own #lovewelcomeserve serve cook book months ago, long before Amy asked if she could send me a copy to review and share with y’all here. Because you don’t have to follow along with @eunamaes for long to be inspired to love people better. And I want to be influenced daily by those who are using the gifts God has given them to make our broken world kinder, and more lovely, and full of purpose that marks eternity. Amy happens to be doing that in a way that is near to my heart... through her home and through yummy food.
Her cookbook is less about perfect meals and Pintrest homes but more about our willingness to be used right where we are, to love on people. She gives practice tools and recipes to equip us to exercise our great privilege we each have to serve those around us. In her words “recipes that gather and give.” Gosh, I love that.
I didn’t have a grandmother like Amy’s Ms. Euna Mae in my own life (swipe to read about her), and truth be told, Paw Paw Nick is more the “Euna Mae” to our grandkids. 😬 But I’m thankful for Amy who has reminded me to slow down and let them be “in my way.” And hopefully make the kind of memories in their Honey’s kitchen that is so much more than just the food. 🙌🏻 #graceupongrace
Amy, you’re making BIG ripples in eternity and it’s beautiful to behold. 😘

Been chasing sunsets with him since 1986. Today’s was courtesy of the Sam’s parking lot on our way inside to buy coconut oil, spinach and a bag of lemons. #lifeisgood #andfunny #ourhappilyeverafter #capturingourblessings
