JJ Heller  Jesus & dark 🍫-loving mama. Just made some pretty things here👇🏻

Watchu think?

At the doctor for a checkup and apparently The Incredibles is still as good as ever. 🤣 We are all engrossed!

They’re even more beautiful in person, and you can order yours today! Link in profile.

I caught you!! Tell the truth, now. Who’s been listening to Christmas music already? 🎄 🎶

I remember these days. Lucy was 2 & Nora was awaiting her arrival into the world. I remember being sleep-deprived even BEFORE Nora was born 🤣😭. My head was full of dreams for my children. But also full of questions.

What would Nora look like? Would I ❤️ her as much as I ❤️ her big sister? There were so many unknowns swirling around in my head, so instead of focusing on the uncertainties, I decided to write songs filled with truth & hope & peace. These songs turned into the lullaby album I Dream of You.

They’re filled with lyrics like, “The sun will rise, however the long the night,” and, “You’re not too small to do great things,” and, “The love of God is evident in the miracle of you.”

These were and are the words my mama heart needs to hold onto when I start feeling overwhelmed. Motherhood is not easy by any stretch of the imagination, but it is more beautiful than we could ever hope. ✨

So here’s to all the mamas out there doing their best on a regular-old Tuesday. I’m cheering for you. You got this. 👊🏻

It’s no secret that I write a LOT of songs for my children. But pretty much every single time, I end up realizing that I need to hear the words myself. I think that’s why I’m so attached to my song Hand to Hold that I wrote with Dave & Andy Gullahorn.

If I’m not careful, I’ll spend my whole life tucked away in “safety” & end up missing the whole thing. Yes, this world is scary, but it’s way too wonderful & beautiful to miss. And so, my friends, may you never lose the wonder in your soul. ✨

Last weekend my church had a good old-fashioned potluck after the service. The adults laughed & told stories while the kids ran around like crazy people on the playground. I didn’t know how much my soul needed it until I was driving home.

When I see this photo, I see the Church. It’s not a building or music or the sermon, although those are all beautiful elements of the service. The Church is people, living life together, sharing food & fears, reminding each other of the goodness of God & spurring each other on toward love.

I know for some people the word “church” evokes a feeling of pain or anger, but I believe with my whole ❤️ that there is beauty still to be found.

May you find unexpected beauty today.✨

Dave’s uncle game is STRONG. Sheesh. 😍😍😍

Lucy & Nora are going to be flower girls at my sister’s wedding next month. Aren’t they just the cutest?!

‘cause its a big world, baby
big enough to dream
you’re not too small to do great things ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As a parent, the greatest thing I could ask for my kids is that they grow to love Jesus. And especially for my first born, my only daughter, that she wouldn’t let anyone look down on her for any meaningless reason- her youth, her gender, profession, skills and abilities or lack of. But that she would be courageous and confident in the very fact that she knows who she is- made and loved by the Creator of the universe and so very precious in His sight.

this shirt is a quote from a song on an album that I literally played for haven every night since she was born till she was about 2 years old. A favorite reminder that though she is little, she is fierce.

How cute are these felt beauties?! I ❤️ how they add a touch of playful nostalgia to any space & make a BIG statement with a small price tag. ✨Link in profile to get yours for $16 while supplies last.
