"My wealth is in the Cross
There's nothing more I want
Than just to know His love
My heart is set on Christ
And I will count all else as loss
The greatest of my crowns
Mean nothing to me now
For I counted up the cost
And all my wealth is in the Cross"

gave into peer pressure and intentionally ate spicy food for the first time ever on purpose. πŸ˜‚ worth it? YEP. mainly cause I took the plunge alongside some awesome friends - some new and some old - and some who'd never met each other. connection might just be my favorite thing ever. ❀️ #getaftergrateful β€’

thanks for hosting, @_andge ! and for organizing, @sandhyaoaks ! and for being my date, @adubbs_21 ! (& you too, Drew πŸ˜‰πŸ˜Ž)

ice cream. prayer walks. garage door photo shoots. fresh haircuts. scripture snuggles. weekend leftovers. afternoon naps. new friends. baby laughs. learning to enjoy every moment with my good friend, Jesus. πŸ’•πŸ™ŒπŸΎ#getaftergrateful #abide #weekend

''Twas a day full of celebrations! πŸŽˆπŸŽ‰

surprised Grandma Bobbi for her 82nd birthday this morning! Laurie gathered her closest gals and provided such a fun space for us to celebrate Bobbi's life and legacy of faith together. ❀️ sat in awe as these women spoke of the many days they've spent praying for their husbands, kids, grandkids and more together. so special to hear all the memories these dear friends have shared + the lives they've touched with their hearts for God- mine being one of them. πŸ™ŒπŸΎ thanking Him for another year with our Bobbi! β€’
next up was @amgoplin's baby shower! we mainly laughed our way through baby jeopardy. πŸ˜‚ Ash, you're gonna be such a great mom! Baby Roskopf is already so so loved. 😘

the thing I can't stop sharing with my married friends: this months #marriageadvice from @maisonmeredith & @caleb_maisonmeredith ! πŸ‘πŸΎ drew and I just recently started asking each other these questions and MAN do I feel like I know him better already! highly recommend. not just for marrieds, but for friends who want to be increasingly intentional, too! 😍 β€’

such a fun fiesta celebrating our dear Jenna girl tonight! it's SO evident you've touched many hearts - I'm just so grateful one of them is mine! love you, J! 😍😘

hear the rest of my "why" for encouraging YOU to check out @dancestandrun , on the full video found in my Facebook feed! I share about my season of trying to "earn" Gods approval, and the most recent time in my life where I started to sense that something was missing. πŸ™‹πŸ½
β€’
hint: I've learned what was missing: reverence, repentance, wisdom, humility --> all parts of what it means to "agree with my holiness". more explanation in the full vid, but now - grace is compelling me forward. β€’
β€’
@dancestandrun puts even more words to my experience, as @jessaconnolly unpacks what it means to walk (or dance 😎) in freedom while ALSO walking (or dancing 😎) in holiness. β€’

GUYS. As someone who has read the first bit of @dancestandrun , as someone who has read the Tips for Mission eBook, as someone who has dug deep into this teaching with 1,500 others, THIS IS SO WORTH IT. I cannot say it enough. The words are compelling, kind, authentic beyond my ability to describe (I mean, she talks about her Netflix learnings, people!) and NEW. It’s a message I’ve never heard like this before, and it’s good and needed and being ushered into the world with great joy. Thanks, God! β€’

weekend reminders: many times outta 10 I'll get it wrong, but Gods #grace is big enough for me. πŸ™ŒπŸΎ heading into Monday with fresh eyes - not because I've got it figured out. just because I'm His. πŸ’•

Celebrating baby Sanchez today was so much fun! Can't wait to meet this little one. We love his/her mama so much! πŸ’•#sanchezpartyofthree

Big thanks to the ladies of River Valley Church who compiled their wisdom and encouragement into a little book of mom learnings for Sam!! (See last photo for her reaction! πŸ˜πŸ‘πŸΎ)

a month ago I found out I'd need to start weekly doctors appointments almost 2 hours away to treat my skin condition. i was grateful for treatment, but also felt largely annoyed and inconvenienced. but WHO knew those appointments would be such a great in-between spot for me to see some of my dearest friends?! GOD KNEW. He seems to be in the business of turning sucky into lucky and I'm just so thankful. ❀️
β€’
these girls have taught me one of the biggest things I've needed in life: the truth that more often than not the best way to love people is to meet them where they're at and just love them forward. patiently & without agenda, knowing Someone far greater has their best in mind. πŸ™ŒπŸΎ

ALSO, CHICK FIL A SAUCE! πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‚πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘πŸΎπŸ‘ŒπŸΎ
