- Little x Little 〰 I don't have words to go with this. I'd like to come up with some and if I sat here long enough I know I would. But sometimes there are just no words. And to be honest, that is where I'm at right now. Some of my circumstances have left me at a loss for words. Maybe you, too, are going through something and you've got no words. It's not that you don't have language for it. It's just that maybe the hurt is so deep you can't you can't mix letters with sounds. Or maybe you said all there is to be said. Perhaps you have, even, exhausted yourself in prayer. 〰 I don't know what LITTLE by LITTLE will mean to you or for you--I think I'm just getting a glimmer of what it means for me--But I believe it might mean something or be for someone. 〰 Little by Little, lovely ones.

- I woke up with a heavy heart. I can’t imagine the weight of grief that came in a horrifying instant for those in Manchester. I can’t grasp the trauma and emotional damage that was done to, still developing, hearts and minds. My heart aches for the mothers, the fathers, the children. . All I could do was pray—for all who mourn to be comforted. For justice. For wisdom. For the brokenhearted. It wasn’t even 7am, yet, and I realized that I was feeling more anger than sadness. Anger for the unnecessary loss of innocent lives. Anger that such evil exists. Again, AIl I could do was pray. I prayed for protection. I prayed for future evil plans to be thwarted. I prayed against forces of darkness. . Every night we pray Psalms 91 over our children. As a person who has battled serious fear, for most of my life, I am so well acquainted with this chapter. Verse by verse, line by line, word by word. So much so that, I’m realizing, it has became familiar. Today, on the drive to school, I prayed it over my children. As they scooted out of the car and into the school I wondered…”Why am I not praying this over ALL the children of the world? Over everyone?” We are someone’s child, after all. . Too many times we forget that PRAYER IS PREEMPTIVE. I forget. I forgot. We are great at praying after the fact. But what if we begin to pray BOLDLY before? Before the day starts? Before the trial arises? Before crisis comes? Before whatever this broken world throws in our direction. . In Psalm 91:5 it says “You will not be afraid of the terror of night, Nor of the arrow that flies by day.” This is a NOW prayer. The chapter also says, “God rescues us from every hidden trap, and that He will give His angels charge over us to accompany us and defend us.” I’m NOW praying preemptive prayers, not just for my near and dear, but for the whole wide world. Would you join me? #lalalovelywords

- "For those of us who believe, faith activates the promise and we experience the realm of confident rest!" Hebrews 4:3 (TPT) 〰 I don't know where you are at in life...If you lack faith, if you are searching for rest, if you are waiting on a promise? Personally, I'm waiting on a promise, searching for rest and admitting I need more faith. I've been stuck in Hebrews four for a few days and I can't get past how all of these things are intertwined. I used to believe that faith was something I had to really strive and work for, but really faith is resting. It's resting on God. Believing Him to be good for His word (the many promises in His Word and the very personal ones He has whispered to your heart). 〰 The Passion translation calls it "The Faith-Rest Life." And it is this faith-rest that activates the promise. In other words it sets it in motion. It's our doubt and unbelief that keeps us from the promise (and rest). 〰 Faith simply comes by hearing, and hearing the word of Christ (Romans 10:17). Keep God's word before you and your faith will increase and activate the promise while you confidently rest. 〰 God is good for His word, lovely ones. 〰 #lalalovelywords

- If you ask my kids, "who's your favorite momma?" They will answer, "Gommy." And I could never argue with that. I've somehow managed to win the mom lottery and I will never take it for granted. My mom is the most unselfish person I know. I've watched her, my entire life, give away her time, attention, finances, gifts, talents and, literally, the shirt off her back. My home growing up was always open to friends and family and even to those that needed an extended place to stay. I've watched my mom be graceful in the best of times and worst. In adversity I've witnessed her faith grow, never falter. The most important thing in her life has always been God and family and it's evident to anyone that knows her. And somehow she manages to become more beautiful with age (good genes, good face cream and Psalm 103:5). I love you mom! Thank you for loving me unconditionally. Thank you for talking me through life. Thank you for teaching me, through your everyday living, how to live a God centered life, how to love family, and how to pick out a good face cream.

- I call myself a recovering perfectionist. It’s not that I want to be perfect or for my life too look perfect (because I’ve known for a long time that NOTHING is perfect); it’s just that I’ve spent almost forty years striving and trying to be acceptable to everyone and anyone and to always please those dear to me. It’s just that I would like everyone to be happy with me. It’s just that I want to do the right thing-all the time. It’s just that I want to be good enough. ➕ I know I am free, but I revert. Usually when it comes to making decisions. I take polls. I ask others, when I know the answer. I spend way too much time worrying about getting it wrong. But…I recognize and begin, AGAIN, my working through the years of behavior and habits of caring too much what others think and being afraid to let others down. I’m finally learning to make decisions for myself. Trusting myself. Not trusting in myself--but trusting myself because the Holy Spirit lives IN me. ✔️ Do I have any friends in recovery, too? I cheer you on today! 〰 A few years back my hero of a grandma told me to…”Obey God and leave the consequences to Him.” This has been my mantra, and my manna when I find myself making decisions based upon pleasing others. Another word that has been before my eyes came from my my wise and awesome Aunt…she encouraged me to LOVE MORE and CARE LESS. I encourage you with these words today, too! 🖤 Love MORE and care LESS, lovely ones! XOXOX #lalalovelywords #lalalovelylife

- Well, I just completed and turned in a manuscript (57,404 words to be exact). It feels weird and surreal and exciting to put this out there. But it’s time. I’ve spent years working on this—on and off—but for the past six months I’ve been pouring my heart out and have had my head to the ground, figuratively and sometimes literally--in prayer. ✨ I’m excited to share more about the project . . . But for now I can tell you that beautiful imagery will be included.🌸 #lalalovelywords

- Heart full, hands open. That's all I can say after #OriginalConference. God always does above and beyond what we could ever dare to ask, think, dream or imagine and how beautiful to see and experience this. How gorgeous to see thousands of women in a posture of praise and positioned to live in and find their God given purpose. How lovely to hear over and over again in personal and unique ways that we are enough because He is enough. The freedom that came with those words was palpable. ➕ Loved spending time with new friends, catching up with old friends and watching my dear, amazing friend, @jendeweerdt lead this movement of women in such a beautiful way. 👏🏼🙌🏼👊🏼💕 .

- I don't know if I'll ever wrap my head around how life can be so brutal and beautiful at the same time. How we can walk in pain and purpose. How it can feel like winter in our souls while spring is in the air (and vice versa). 🌸 All I do know is that no matter what darkness we face, there is always a light. ✨ No matter how deep our hurt, there is hope. ➕No matter how broken we are there is beauty. 🌹Noticing the light, the bloom, the beauty IN brokenness can be the re-directing from a path of pain to a path of healing--broken to whole. This is the path that I'm on. I choose to look for beauty in the ordinary everyday. 🌸 Lovely ones, I'm praying today that the new life of spring sows a seed of new beginnings in you. What beauty have you noticed today? #lalalovelylife #lalalovelywords

- This girl has found her voice and a God confidence at such a young age. Somehow, at almost 40, I feel like I'm just now finding mine. 〰 I snuck into 8th grade chapel today and watched la la lead her middle school in worship and listened as she (along with other amazing 8th graders) shared from the heart. Ella spoke about identity and worth--lessons I've been personally clawing and surrendering my way through the past five years. And at 14, she gets it. 〰 As I sat and let my daughters heaven sent words wash over me, I thought...this is how God redeems time...how he takes the rubble of past lives and builds a new foundation - a new home (Isaiah 58). How beautiful. How thoughtful and dearly detailed. 〰 Don't despise the hard work of change and daily sacrifice of surrender, lovely ones. It may be a gradual rebuilding for you-- but it is a starting foundation for your children and everyone who comes behind you. 〰 I love you Ella Grace and am extremely proud of you....not for what you do -- but for who you are. Thank you for teaching me and inspiring me to use my voice! #lalalovelylife #thankyoujesus #lalalittles #cityfirstyouth
