Spent the morning with this little sugar sweet while her parents were gone and my, my, my I couldn’t love her more.😍 All she does is smile, kick, and coo at you. Like as in she’s actually PERFECT. #littlelucylewin

This old lyric has been the anthem of my heart lately and my literal focus as it sits displayed before my eyes each day.
Jesus: a thrill of hope. My weary soul is made alive and my shaky hands of doubt are steadied and my anxious heart bubbles over with peace. Alllll because Jesus — that little thrill of hope laying in a manger.
Advent is coming and I think we should fix our eyes on the thrill rather than on the unknown and the chaos and the busy. Whatta ya say? Wanna?!🙌🏽

I may be blaring my Christmas playlist and pinning Christmas ideas and shopping for winter candles right now, but I don’t discriminate when it comes to cute cookies. #butchristmastho😍🙌🏼

Happy Happy Birthday to this girl. DEAR LORT. I honestly can’t believe we’ve only known each other for a year. You bring SO MUCH LIFE to my soul just by being who you are and BB girl you already know i’m just obsessed with ya. You are HILARIOUS, kind, intentional, freaking BEAUTIFUL, creative, compassionate, and just the REALEST. I feel like I sort of got jipped by having to wait 26 years to meet you, but you were worth the wait Kyky. I’m celebrating you today (and always, really) for all that you are. Praying that this year really is your best one yet. Love you so dang much. #kyky #howareyouthatpretty #andfunny #andgoodateverything #kybetch #therealcakeboss #RIPcakesbykylee #brunobbz #daddy #iwanttoputsomanymorehashtags #buttheyarentappropriate #🙄

Give us all the brisk temperatures and crunchy leaves and fuzzy pullovers, and swing-set stops, right Jordan?
Glad fall finally decided to show up half way through October. 🙌🏼🍂

Yesterday I did something I NEVER do - I went to Panera ALONE (that’s the part I never do), ordered some soup and a sandwich, and cracked open a book. I got away for literally just an hour but my heart needed it so desperately. In the prologue of the book the author wrote a sentence that has been stirring inside of me since I read it. “How we live and act and move is a reflection of what we believe about who He is.” And in that very moment I felt like I got a glimpse of who God is. God is a coffee or lunch date with myself, He is challenging myself in His truths. He is intentional time carved away from the chaos of life swirling around me. He is the quiet, calm moments. He is the rest in the midst of the rally.
And He met me there yesterday with the same tenderness and grace and holiness that He always does…but it felt different. Like I finally understood that even that little move — a little sit-down at Panera by myself— was a reflection of who I see God as. Intentional, not rushed, not routine, fully present.
So I’m challenging myself this week (and forever🤞🏽) to undo my thinking and to make every single move a reflection, not of who I want God (or others, let’s be honest) to see ME as, but of who I see and KNOW Him to be.
Join me?🤷🏼‍♀️🤗

Happy Birthday to THE ORIGINAL BAE. Beebz, you make life SO much fun. There’s no one that can get me to CHILL the frick out and laugh at life like you can. Whether it be taking a joke entirely too far, coming up with license plate acronyms (WHY THO?), appearing to be my boyfriend in public (😑🙄), or giving me a good run for my money on a quip lash answer, you’re the guy for the job. You are the perfect mix of making me laugh until I cry and making me want to punch you in the face all at the same time, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. You’re loyal, kind, hard working, intentional, and you run hard after Jesus. I’m SUPER encouraged by who you are, who you’ve been, and who you’re becoming.
Celebrating ALL that you are today, bb. (AND HELLLLOOOO TUESDAY BECAUSE BRUNOOOOO BABEEEEY). Love you so much chiggen wing. Cheers to 21 years!🥂 #thebbsgrowingup #bbgabbz #mybaeforthedae #notreally #justlikedthehashtag #omgbrunotho #canyoueven!? #becauseicant #littybop

Thanks, Grandpa. For unconditional love, for wisdom far beyond my years, for hilarious commentary and 1 million laughs, for handshakes that held $5 bills inside of them, for the kindest smile and the sweetest wink, for a beautiful example of leadership and for being proof that hard work always pays off. Thanks for serving this country so that the generations behind you could live freely. Thanks for hundreds of Sunday dinners, a bunch of garage-egg-carton golf balls, for blowing the trumpet ornament upon my every request. Thanks for the extra squeeze you always gave my hand as I would kiss you goodbye.. especially that last one a few days ago. Thank you for leaving the most incredibly beautiful legacy of family and of love to the 89 (and one on the way) family members that you left behind.
Your life was and is such a treasure to my heart. I am rejoicing with you knowing you met Jesus today, hugged grandma again, and feel no more pain; but my eyes are puffy and my heart is achey knowing you’re gone. Until we meet you forever.❤️

Woke up today with the lyrics of You are My Peace running through my mind. Besides the repetitive “You are my peace you are my peace,” I woke up singing the bridge. “I don’t have to be strong because You are my strength. I don’t have to hold on because You don’t let go.” It’s so sweet when the Lord comforts your broken heart without you having to even go to Him or say a word.
Feeling grateful for a Father who sees me, hears me, weeps with me, and holds my tears. Who let’s me sink into the nook of his arms and just sit without speaking a word. And good news for you too — He’s also the Father who sees YOU, hears you, weeps with you, and holds YOUR tears, too.
He’s so much better than you think He is. Hold onto that.

After (almost) 2 weeks I finally got to meet this sweet guy and my heart could actually explode with love. This kid is PERFECTION.
Joshua and Emily -- you have blown me away with your unwavering faith as you waited and prayed for this baby. He is the luckiest guy in the world to have you two. I love your little family so stinking much.❤️ #weretheFOURbestfriendsthatanybodycouldhave #thenewestyiddlebopbops
It wasn't our best go-around at the group selfie (like not a single one of them turned out clear with everyone looking😂) but it was still a successful night.
Jackie and Jen I freaking adore you two. Thanks for making us laugh uncontrollably but also for being the REALEST and sharing wisdom beyond what our little 20-something brains have yet to figure out. Love love love you gals. ❤️💃🏿🙌🏼
