  • Our enemy, the great deceiver, the father of lies—he tries to convince us that whatever we’ve done is just so big and so bad, so different and so much worse, that it can never be fixed or forgiven or redeemed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This sin and this shame—and they have to go. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Because, when sin remains and shame stays, bad things will follow. We get stuck, isolated, overwhelmed when sin is ignored and rationalized and denied because of shame. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But let me ask you this: Do you believe that sin and shame can go? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Because sometimes our sin and shame have been with for us so long, it’s hard to believe that they’re not going to be with us for the rest of our lives—that they haven’t become fixtures of our identities. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But there’s another way. Come and listen to “The Transformation of Sin, Shame & Pride.”

  • Kalab* in Bhutan: “God is good and he works in a marvelous way. In the midst of harassment, He has proven that he is the living God. One of the villagers was seriously sick and bedridden, and the doctors could not diagnose her sickness. She was literally on the death bed, and became normal the day that we prayed. God touched her and healed her and now her whole family believes in the LORD. In the neighborhood, this testimony has become a strong evidence that when the Christians pray, God works in a powerful way. Praise God for His healing power.” // #HarvestBridge #JesusChangesEverything #SundayMotivation

  • Snow planks instead of snow angels today for Planktober day 14! I went to church, but now I plan on hiding out for the rest of the day in our cozy little house making breakfast burritos for the week and doing my Bible study homework while curled up under a fuzzy blanket with chamomile lavender tea. ☕️ How are you savoring your Sunday? “Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.” ‭‭Psalm‬ ‭34:8‬

Does it ALL need to be done today? Probably not. Rest sis. Give Jesus your list and ask Him what’s important! 🌿 What’s on your list that can wait? #eatpraytribe

  • "My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus' blood and righteousness; I dare not trust the sweetest frame, but wholly lean on Jesus' name." 🎶 Edward Mote . What are you hoping in today? Daily I need to be reminded that my hope is not in my accomplishments, how often I pray, my children, my marriage, the food I eat, how well I parent, my mentors, my friends, or even my sinful brokenness. . Let's turn our gaze from those things and set it once again on Jesus. Whose love ran so deep that He took all our brokenness on Himself and offered us back a hope and a future. Amen 💗🙌🏻 . But He said to me, 'my grace is sufficient for you.'" 2 Corinthians 12:9 Grace sufficient for every sin. Every need. Every false hope. . #anchoredintruth

  • “The critical question for our generation— and for every generation— is this: If you could have heaven, with no sickness, and with all the friends you ever had on earth, and all the food you ever liked, and all the leisure activities you ever enjoyed, and all the natural beauties you ever saw, all the physical pleasures you ever tasted, and no human conflict or any natural disasters, could you be satisfied with a heaven, if Christ was not there? If you are deeply in love with God, you know you could never be satisfied in a heaven without Christ.” -Crazy Love by Francis Chan

  • I was reminded this morning that faith isn’t just waiting around for the miracles. It isn’t a coin slot that I can visit every once in a while with a prayer of my needs and expect something grand in return. It isn’t just riding the high of everything going right. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Rather, It’s faith in the Creator who is the Miracle. It’s knowing that because He lives, I am chosen, free and loved. It’s understanding that everything I am given, every breath that I take is a gift of life - a miracle. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I am thankful for reminders like these. Happy Sunday, my dear friends. ✨

  • Cozy scarves and #handmadeknitsbytracy bracelets can match😍 Hand knit bracelets are knitted cuffs that hug your wrist so nothing hard is touching the skin. #socozy The best testimony I have been told was when a teacher at a blind school told me she wore her bracelet so her students could “feel” the soft cuff but the letters were metal and the student could tell it was her by the bracelet. 💙 How great that our God is there in the seen and unseen in our lives. Just look for Him in your life. He is there. I love hear how you wear your bracelet and what it means to you #godisfaithful #handmadewithlove . .

  • I want to tell you something that might just make your Sundae!!! (See what I did there?) It’s National Dessert Day, so why not finish out the weekend with a little self-indulgence?! 🍰 Last fall on a golden rainy day, I tasted the most exquisite Autumn Cake in a small home-turned-into-a-dessert-and-tea-cafe outside of Helsinki, Finland. It was off the charts delicious. 🍁 I have a pretty mean sweet tooth so I see this holiday as an opportunity to recreate it. 🧡 What’ll you do for Dessert Day?

So, I end up feeling all the pressure and shove everything to the side. ✨ Anyone else do this?! Me too…but I’m learning 💕 When God gives us dreams, he just wants us to start somewhere. Then he guides our next steps. Good lord, it has taken me FOREVER to learn this! 🙌🏻 To all my dreamers out there, what do you do to start somewhere?! I need some help.

  • Tell fear to G E T B A C K . ➕ I think fear and anxiety is a weapon that the enemy regularly uses against us. Worry, anxiety, and fear can quickly become very overwhelming and can place this fog in your mind and in front of your eyes from seeing clearly. Then if we don’t find a way to get out of that fog, it can start to feel like total darkness and will control our every move and thoughts. . ➕ With all of the things that are happening in this big crazy world, it’s easy to find something to be scared about in our lives. Whether that’s war, conflicts, persecution, natural disasters, unemployment, sickness, financial stability, fear of the unknown and future decisions. My gosh, the list can go on and on!! . ➕ Ladies and Gents, since I was a child I would have nervousness and anxious thoughts. The enemy has been using this weapon on me for far too long... and I’m attacking him right back. I am speaking LIFE over my fear. I am praying about these fears and OUT LOUD I am telling them to GET BACK. YOU ARE NOT WELCOME HERE!!! Then change happens. Anxious thoughts began to diminish. Worry let go of its constant grip. And though fear is sometimes still there, it no longer controls me, or paralyzes me. His words are “life” words, soothing to our soul, calming to our spirits, giving power to our days. . ➕ “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.” Psalm 46:1 . . . . . . #taborgang #shereadstruth #graceupongrace #motherhoodrising #mommymoments #biblejournaling #tabortots #2andunder #daughteroftheking #soulscripts #savedbygrace #gracemakers #shedelights #dailydevotional #momminainteasy #realmotherhood

  • When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy. Psalm 94:19 . . The definition of consolation: comfort, sympathy, compassion, pity, empathy, relief, help, support, encouragement, reassurance. . . Sometimes during our most difficult and struggling days we can feel as if God is far away. But that is far from the truth! Our Father is close to us. It brings Him great joy to comfort His child. He sees us and He has compassion for us. Next time you find yourself in a difficult situation, try to remember He is there and ready to take your anxiety. He is ready to replace your anxiety with joy. Be at peace child of God.

  • I will choose to not be offended by "the pitch". I won't feel "less than" by rejection. Failure will not determine my worth. . In all honesty, these reactions aren't natural. Getting out of your head can be tough. . But if someones attempt to sell me something offends me, then what does that say about my view of sales? (That maybe I view sales as a yucky when it's actually not) . If rejection makes me feel less than worthy, then what does that say about my view of the other person? (That maybe I'm putting too much value in their thoughts) . If I view not reaching my goal as "failure" then what does that say about my view of who God is and how he's working in my life? (Maybe that he doesn't actually have ultimate control to work good from EVERYTHING that happens) . And heres the hard truth... believing these lies will leave you struggling to sell and short of your business goals...every time. . Say it out loud with me... . 🔸"Selling is good and I will applaud others and encourage who are figuring this out alongside me." 🔸"Rejection does not mean a thing about who I am or my worth." 🔸"Failure is just an opportunity for me to learn what works and what doesn't so I can knock it out of the park next time." .

  • Listen 👂🏼. Did you know that there is a name ⁣ ⁣ for the sea sound of the 🌳 trees?⁣ ⁣ Psithurism: The sound of wind in the trees and rustling of leaves. 💨🍂🍁🌳🌲⁣ ⁣ I love the mountains and their majesty. I am awed by the sea—the tide roar and lullaby. Both feel like freedom to me. The ocean makes me feel small in the best possible way—the grandeur of God. The mountains make me feel safe, protected and strong. I’ve always dreamed of living by one or the other—in this season, God has given me the trees. ⁣ ⁣ They whisper and they waive. They bend and shed. They cover and crown. The woods and the sea song of the trees clear my mind and remind me that beauty is not about staying the same: often beauty is best displayed in change. ⁣ ⁣ What is your favorite? 🌊 Ocean? 🏔 Mountains or a Forrest full of 🌳🍃🌲. ⁣ ⁣ PS—more life lessons from trees in #lalalovelybook

There's something about the change of weather, crisp air, college football, and return of big sweaters and pumpkin spice that makes me feel so inspired, excited and ready to take on a new season and new goals. . . ✨With a few new people around here I thought it would be a good time to introduce myself again! . . ✨Most days you can find me: Dreaming and writing at my dining room table, with a candle burning, and Hillsong Pandora playing(Christmas music coming soon!) . . ✨People often refer to me as: A crazy aunt who Facetimes too much! I love serving the world by: Sharing how Jesus changed my life and how a relationship with Him can change everything. . . ✨I am passionate about teaching women the essential, lifestyle healthy habits that will empower them to ditch diets, find freedom from guilt and shame, and live confidently fulfilling their destiny that God has prepared for them. . . ✨When I am not working on creating courses or coaching, you can catch me flying home to Washington State to visit my family, enjoying a crossfit workout with my community, going to a movie, or leading a women’s bible study. . . 🎉Your turn!

  • We often find ourselves drowning in self pity, sadness, and “why” questions, every time we are in a time of despair. {Wether it be a financial bind, the loss of a loved one, a break up, or when things are just simply not going the way we planned.} During these hardships, the last thing we are thinking about is thanking God. We tend to only think about thanking Him and praising Him when those tough times are over and things are suddenly better than ever before. When things seem dark and cold, God is in the works of something AMAZING. He will not allow us to lose without gaining something better. He never closes doors without opening a new one. • •“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.” {Isaiah 55:8 KJV}• This verse is a reminder that the way we plan things ARE NOT the way He plans things. The way we do things or handle things, ARE NOT the way He does or handles things. When we ask God “WHY ME??” or when we ask ourselves “WHY is this day not going the way it’s supposed to???” ... maybe it’s because He has a greater plan for whatever it may be. He has an even better idea. Asking him “why” will never make us understand, we just have to trust that it’s not what he has in store for us. Isaiah 55:8 is also a reminder that ... take a deep sigh of relief ... we will never ever have things all figured out like we sometimes think we’re supposed to. Did you know the Lord does not give us more than we can handle? We may feel like we “just can’t do it,” but he wouldn’t have allowed it to happen if he didn’t think we CAN do it. “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” {Philippians 4:13} So I challenge you to thank Him through what ever you’re facing or what ever you may face in the future, instead of asking for help out of it. His plans and His ways are ALWAYS greater than what we can imagine. Trust Him. Have faith in His ways. #awakeningmercy

  • i am cherished. i am wanted. i am seen. i am loved. words i so often have to repeat. reminding myself of the new identity that Christ has given me can feel difficult, even undeserved at times. when the waves of lies, pressure, and circumstance come i have the freedom to place my confidence in Jesus, knowing He is the anchor to hold me steady. we each carry the authority to believe what Christ says about us regardless of what is going on in the world/life around us. in a moment you may feel forgotten or unworthy, but truth has a different story to tell. truth says that at any given moment we are much more worthy, loved, treasured and cared for than we could ever imagine. so not sure if my stream of thoughts are making sense, but it’s all truth so i’m here to share it. maybe i’m just ministering to my own heart, but i hope this ministers to someone else’s too. sooo happy friday you guys 🤓

  • sunday night thoughts: not sure about you guys, but oh boy can social media be a source of discontentment and discouragement. there is so much beauty in the power to instantly share + keep up with people, but also a feeling of pressure that can come from it (at least for me 🤷🏽‍♀️) I often find myself not posting pictures because i’m simply frustrated that they don’t match the unrealistic standard I’ve created in my head OR because they “aren’t good enough” compared to what everyone else has to share. this cycle of comparison and pressure is sooo not good you guys. maybe i’m just speaking for myself, but if you’ve ever struggled with these feelings about social media like me, know that you’re totally not alone in the fight to view yourself + this online world rightly. the world will continue to try and force us to fit a mold we were never designed for. final thought: you are more than what your social media says about you and the pictures you post. and on that note, i’ve talked myself out of posting this like 10 times bc i can be sooo good at picking myself apart 🤓 but choosing freedom, and i hope y’all do too :’)

  • blending right in 🌿🍃 so how many of you guys are like me and feel like you have a “bad” & “good” side of your face when taking pics 🙋🏽‍♀️ i’m soo guilty of only wanting to pose on my “good” side, and find myself feeling insecure of photos that capture the side of me I just don’t love as much.. as silly as it sounds 🙈 But funny thing is, when God created me + you He didn’t stop halfway. He didn’t create a portion of us more beautiful or treasured than the other. He made us whole and complete. Everyday God marvels at the glorious creation that is each of us. He was was proud when He hand-crafted you, and declared you as good. Truth is, none of us have a good or bad side. We’re fully enough no matter which angle you’re viewing yourself from. Lies will forever try to limit the fullness of life God created you to live. So here I am sharing the side of me I often consider not camera/insta worthy. Slowly learning to love + accept + share myself in every form. So if you’ve read this whole thing, just know you are so stinking worthy! Mean it. Like really, really.
