I did this today. Amongst laundry, blogging, email, shower, shopping, napping and playing with Bauer. I'd say it's a good day ;)

I'm being called to pause, to be quiet here for an undefined period of time. And, I'm trusting in the Lord to do His mighty work during this season, and of course in sharing the details that began five years ago with the founding of She Reads Truth. I'll see you later! 💕💕Blog post is linked in profile.
When a cool box arrives and your boy knows it would make a great fort, you beam with joy. When you see your kids creating out of the ordinary, your beam multiplies!

For years I've started out my mornings with a piece of chocolate -- just ask my mother in law ;), and today is no exception. To celebrate my 32nd birthday I'm adding another piece to kickoff naptime. I mean, doesn't this look delicious????? Many thanks to my new dear friend Molly for the carton of sea salt caramels, and also to Ali who spoiled me with an iced coffee front door delivery 🙌🏻. True friendship is a gift!

This morning I surprised Zack on the porch for one final kiss goodbye. My eyes look tired; my heart feels full. I'm so happy I stay home with our children, and daily I'm learning more about HOW to be (and show) grateful as it's made a huge difference. PS. I'll never stop loving color ❤️
We bought a membership to the Detroit zoo which means every time we go the kids get to decide which exhibit we visit and for how long, which automatically makes me the funnest mom ever -- RIGHT??! 💕🤣Today we saw the butterflies, I think that was my favorite stop. So beautiful.
SUPER encouraged this morning as I read a devotional from @proverbs31ministries. Here's what stood out to me from the topic of "letting go" --> 'Letting go is giving up what is beyond our control to embrace what we can change.' ⭐️
The Lord constantly stirs things in my heart, but I'm so afraid of failing that I push it away. I dust it off. I wipe my hands and say, "I can't possibly do that." I allow fear to control the nudging God's doing. And that is NOT what I want to do, nor what I know God wants for me. AND, it's not the example I should be showing my children.
Here's what I know to be true: the Lord doesn't disappoint. He doesn't misguide. His love is deep & wide, constant and full of grace. He doesn't want us to live in fear!
Maggie, wake up and put your fears to rest! 💕Will you join me???
There's some fun stuff added to the Gussy shop!!! Do you remember when I learned how to sew, 8 years ago? And how you came alongside me to encourage and support me? And then we moved to Minneapolis and I quit my day job to focus on Gussy Sews and then we moved to Los Angeles, had a couple babies, continued with Gussy, moved back to Detroit, had a third baby...? Goodness, lots of fun handmade things in the last 8 years. And to this day, you do a mighty fine job of encouraging and supporting me and my family. So, thank you mucho much!!!! 💕✂️👛⭐️Visit #shopgussydotcom to see all the new goodies :)
I used to struggle with the post-nap/pre-dinner time of day. But then I remembered COFFEE and suddenly it's a different experience for all of us.
Up early to read some mamahood encouragement, and look at these fun things sent to me by two creative gals. A tee from @thejonesmarket and a mug from @bobbiwelzel 💕, nearly daily favorites for sure!

Today I was blessed with the most glorious nap. All 3 kids plus the dog slept, which meant I was able to close the living room curtains and read for a few minutes for drifting off to la la dream land. Glorious!!! And when I woke up it was pouring rain outside. A few minutes later Max came out and kissed my arm. Then Goldie slowly woke. Middle babe Nony is still asleep, bless her. Im constantly amazed at how God takes care of us mothers, giving us what we need when we need it and often telling me I'm doing things out of order by making our days feel too chaotic. When I slow down and quiet my heart is when He speaks to me the most. 🙌🏻 PS. #crookedlampshade
HAPPY FATHER'S DAY, babe! We're spending naptime driving around Detroit (New Center, Hamtramck, Midtown) and looking at all the neighborhoods. Also, planning our next adventure??? Thought we'd take a selfie to show our real personalities ;)
