free printable [July]

i thought it would be fun to start offering a free printable every month. what do you think?

this was inspired from Sunday's She Reads Truth devotion. we're going through "Living the Surrendered Life" in the YouVersion app. on day 11, the author set out to change our thinking when it comes to the popular sentiment "follow your heart". i've always been uncomfortable with this saying, because Jeremiah 17:9 tells us that the heart is deceitful above all things, doesn't it? anyway, i was relieved she mentioned it and reminded us that instead of following our hearts, we should be guarding our hearts [proverbs 4:23] because everything flows forth from it [luke 6:45].

in case you need that reminder too...


or coral:

two more things and then i'll let you go...

1) i have two new prints in the shop! "Trust in the Lord" and a loooong-overdue redesign of "Fruit of the Spirit".

2) i'm still running 28% off for another week. just use BDAY28 at checkout and you can steal these babies for just $8.64 each!?


  1. i think YES! i saw your comment on danielle's blog and so now i'm like ALL OVER your printables!! i can't get enough of these!!

    and "free" just sounds so beautiful in my little poor college brain!!

    1. oh, yay! I wasn't sure if my comment ever got posted!? so glad it did :) I seriously loved what you said! might as well start gleaning wisdom from us crazy mamas before you have kids. you'll be a pro by then ;) enjoy the print!!

  2. Thank you for the printable! Really that is so perfect! I am excited to share them with my friends too!

  3. These are adorable and I absolutely love your store! Definitely need to make a purchase soon!

on embracing disappointment

sometimes it's the hardest thing we'll ever do to pause our ever-moving-forward agendas long enough to see another person. to have compassion and grace and understanding for them, especially when it interferes with our desires, when it means laying down our own needs in order to meet theirs.

our own motives and our own agendas can feel so important and forefront, so that moment of yielding to someone else can feel almost impossible. like a death of sorts.

because you know what? it hurts to die to self. it just does, no matter how insignificant it may seem to an onlooker.

but i'm learning to embrace all of the emotions that come with disappointments like this, not to ignore them or feel shame for experiencing them (probably the hardest part for me). to feel them, acknowledge them, let them sit there while i figure out the next right thing.

it's hard work to live in the tension of wanting to be healthy and magical and able to live above the waves - while still being very…

here and there

ah, the joys of spray painting. i literally have a hundred picture frames. i've just collected them over the years. usually black or some sort of dark metallic. but since that doesn't really fit my decor style anymore, i'm embracing the spray painting addiction trend that's taking hold of the [mostly blog] world. my husband thinks i'm nuts, until i place everything back into the house and he loves me again because it looks perfect. i even spiritualized spray painting/repurposing here. yes, i really did.

this is my little bookshelf. given to me by my mom. the corkboard is from Homegoods. the other items i've had for years [except the lantern which is a $1 Goodwill find, painted black]. the "a" holds up my books, "j" holds my husband's, and "r" holds my daughter's. she knows that she can only touch her shelf but she always talks about ours. 
i'm thinking i should probably replace the two-moth old baby shower invitation with…

hope spoken 2014 | a little recap

well. it feels weird to be back here in this space. i haven't regularly blogged for over a year. i'm feeling like it's time for a redesign but that's beside the point. i'm really here to tell you about Hope Spoken conference that i attended in dallas 2 weekends ago. everyone has been saying how they need time to process everything. i'm no exception. what i'm about to share is really an email i wrote to casey and danielle a few days after i got home, but i've edited and expanded a little. there is still so much more in my heart and mind that's not quite ready to come out:

i'm finally sitting down to pour out my heart after such an amazing weekend. the first thing that's hitting me is these three girls went with a dream and a mission and a calling from Jesus, and were brave to walk through the door and keep going, as danielle describes it. i'm sure they imagined how beautiful it would be but i don't think they could have imagined just …
