rest and why it’s good for the soul


I'm not very good at taking breaks. I'm what one might call an "overachiever". I mean come on, I had 3 babies in under three years. That's just showing off! #winkyface But seriously, I really have a hard time stopping. I am involved in a lot of things and so it's easy for me to keep my mind spinning at full speed and never slow down. My friend Nathalie told me the other day I remind her of an energizer bunny, and while this is funny, it can be a bit scary too. I never thought I would become a … [Read more...]

sex, marriage and fairytales


I saw this video yesterday and I just had to share it. What an incredible message of what God intended marriage to look like. I'm so thankful that I have a marriage built on friendship, laughter and fun. We are about to celebrate 6 years of marriage and it's been the best 6 years because we have a relationship built on Christ and nothing else. February is the month of "love" and unfortunately love can be so skewed in our world today. God had big plans for what He wanted love and marriage to … [Read more...]

remember when Christmas happened?


The past month has been a whirlwind of sickness, traveling, playing catch up and settling back into real life after the holidays. It always flies by so fast. I plugged my camera into my computer this weekend only to realize I had never even downloaded our pictures from Christmas. As I sit here tonight listening to all three of my babies cough in their sleep and struggle to breathe through the stuffed up noses, these pictures bring so much joy to my heart. A sweet reminder of the precious … [Read more...]

let’s get organized {plus free printables!}


I want to help you get organized, so I'm here today to share all of my best kept secrets! I'm a nutcase when it comes to planning, scheduling and organizing my life. Now don't get me wrong, my house is falling apart 99.95% of the time because I still have three children ages 3 and under, but I do my best. And the way I keep my head above water is to stay organized on paper. I wanted to share with you how I do it and give you some practical tips to help you figure out what might work for you. … [Read more...]

It's hard to believe how fast the last year has flown by. Our little Mak Attack will be one in just a month!

new on the horizon slash 2014 planning

fire place planning

It's no secret that I'm a type A+ person. Planning, scheduling, colored markers, office supplies...these are a few of my favorite things. I get giddy when I have a fully color coded calendar and matching to do lists. It's a sickness. But I don't want any medicine for it. The beginning of the year is always exciting. Newness is fun. I love a fresh sheet of paper, a blank notebook, a brand new planner. The blank slate is refreshing, especially after an overwhelming and stressful year. It's that … [Read more...]

the things my heart aches for


I spent the last few weeks planning for 2014 (mostly in my brain because UGH my planner is on a fedex truck somewhere...), soaking up time with my babes and pouring into my marriage. It's been a beautiful and (semi) relaxing time, and it's also shown me a lot of myself and the ugly parts of my heart. My heart aches for many things in this season.  For more community.  For a deeper marriage.  For children who know Jesus.   To know Him more.  Time is always my worst enemy - … [Read more...]

one word – 2014


It's so interesting to look back on a year and see all that happened. I'm thankful that I can be a "glass half full" kind of person because when I look at the major events of the year, it was a really hard year. I never dreamed I would face some of the things I went through, and I'm so happy that I feel like I'm coming out on the other side. But then I look at the year and realize how amazing and blessed it was. I can't help but praise God for the hard times that brought the even better … [Read more...]
