- Last month, I purposed in my heart to say “yes” to love and “no” to fear this new year. In any decision, I must figure out who is doing the talking, love or fear? And choose love. Saying yes is scary for me, especially to new things. What if I fail? What if it’s hard? What if I’m not good at it? What if I don’t enjoy it? But saying no keeps me in my comfort zone. Rarely any growth happens there. While there’s much wisdom in saying no due to knowing your limits, schedule, and priorities, I mostly said “no” because of the “unknowns” I mentioned above. I used to let fear win and I used “no” as an excuse to avoid failure, to insure safety, and in doing so I missed out on growth. • But just in the past two months of letting love be the courageous spark within me to say “yes” to the hard thing, the new thing, the challenging thing, I’ve been blown away by how much I’m learning, how much God is giving, and how many more opportunities to choose “yes” has come as I’ve faithfully chosen love over fear. • I’m not saying we must fill our schedules, but check our motives for why or why not we do something. Maybe it’s making the hard phone call instead of putting it off until tomorrow. Or applying for that job you’d probably thrive in, but you’re out of your mind intimidated by the process. Maybe it’s continuing the degree when it’d be easier to quit. Or sharing with your spouse an area in your life you need to work on when it’d be less humbling to work on it quietly. What has fear been keeping you from lately? Or what has it been making you do? I wonder what might change when we let love empowered by God replace fear? I wonder how we might change? I know it’s changing me. “God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and love and of a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7

- Hey friend!🤗 . Did you just fail something today like me? We all do. It's totally normal.🙈 . But here's what I've been learning recently: when you fail, don't quit...pivot.👊 . I will be honest, at times it feels much easier to quit. Especially... . When I fail my kids... . When I fail my husband... . When I fail my friends... . When I fail in my work... . But what if instead of giving up, we give it to God--all our yucky, ugly, terrible mistakes? All the painful moments, tears, angry outbursts, and things that didn't turn out the way we anticipated? What if we redirect and seek His grace (and theirs), asking for forgiveness, and pivot in our actions towards His promises?🙏 . Our kids will then see our repentant hearts and understand how to ask forgiveness... . Our marriages will be refined and cultivate a love that moves beyond our circumstances... . Our friendships will become intentional instead of conditional and superficial... . Our gifts will be unveiled as we lean into our unique purpose and learn who we are, and who we aren't... . We fail when we quit, giving in to the enemy who says we can't, shouldn't or won't ever make it or change. . We succeed when we pivot, giving it all to Jesus who says we can, should and will make it when we believe and trust in Him.💖 . Tell me on this #fridayintroductions day, what area of your life is God calling you to pivot instead of quit? What failure can you make right through the appropriate action?🤔 . Remember, pivoting is a healthy and necessary part of the process when we face failures of any kind. Every "failure" turns into a greater success story when we pivot back to Him.💞 . #refineandrestore #giveittojesus #presentoverperfect #followfriday #christianblogger #inspiremyinstagram #momcreative

- Today on Coffee with Carla I shared a little about a piece of #mystory.📖 . ▶️ How I was written off by a lot of people because of my “behaviour”. . ▶️ How people - even my mom - didn’t think a University education was in my future. . ▶️ How people focused on the what - ignoring the why of what was going on. . But you know what? . I went on to University - and graduated. 🙌 . Because I refuse to be pigeon holed by others.✅ . And because my present and future is not defined by my past setback - but by the comeback. My comeback.💯 . Don’t live in the hurt of the past. . Live in the moment of overcoming that got you from there to here. . Find purpose in the pain and use it as fertilizer to BLOOM.🌸🌺🌼 . xo Carla . . . . . . #thegirlgang #theeverygirl #propelwomen #madeformore #shereadstruth #overcome #momofone #boymomma #sensorykids #homeschoolmom #homeschooling #fearless #believeinyourself #liveonpurpose #coffeeaddict #coffeeandjesus #bipolardisorder #recovery

- Who do you see something beautiful in? ⠀ ⠀ I don’t think we give compliments, encouragement and praise often enough sometimes! I’ll be the first to admit that when I’m feeling insecure, I really don’t want to encourage others because I feel down about myself. ⠀ ⠀ I’ve learnt though, that encouraging others actually encourages us! It spreads more of God’s love and kindness in this world that needs it 💐⠀ ⠀ So who can you encourage this week? ⠀ ⠀ Tag some gals below who you see something beautiful in 😍👇

- Pretty surreal to walk into @biblemuseumonthesquare and see a couple of photos of myself and my @shereadstruth Bible as part of their #generationsoffaith exhibit. I was so honored to share about my faith and one way I’m passing it down to future generations. They asked to borrow my Bible to display some of my notes as well. If you are in the Memphis area you really should pay them a visit and see this exhibit that runs through April 28. It was quite inspiring to see and read about how others are sharing their faith ❤️

- Dear Candice, This weekend I'm going on a date with a guy I really like, but I'm not sure what to wear. Should I keep it cute and casual or dressy and cute? - Takoma from Texas __________ Hey Tacoma, Really, it depends on where your going. If it's a casual date, I wouldn't overdress, if it's a dressy date I wouldn't dress too casual. Dress to be remembered and dress like your authentic self. You don't want the guy you're dating to fall in love with your representative and then later meet who you really are. If you're a girly girl, dress like a girly-girl. If you're a tomboy, keep it casual and cute. The best relationships are the ones built on their authenticity. 😘

- My desire to create the perfect atmosphere every time I spend time with the Lord gets in the way of actually opening my Bible. · If I don't have 30 minutes to set aside, I often I don't do anything at all because I feel like the 10 minutes I do have just isn't enough. But it would be more than I end up doing... · The candles and the music and the notebooks are not necessary. God is always there, always ready to listen. Whether it's at the alter or in the shower. You just have to show up for Him. · If this sounds like you too, or you know you have been neglecting your relationship with the Lord, join with me in an effort to show up for the Lord. It's always worth it.
