Iโ€™ve missed so so many of her โ€œfirstsโ€. I donโ€™t get to know what she looked like when she was a baby or a toddler taking her firsts steps. I didnโ€™t get to experience her losing her first tooth or learning the alphabet.
Iโ€™ve had to mourn those loses and come to terms with the fact that God had a different plan for our stories as they intertwined.
So, when it snows for the first time this winter and you get to capture the joy and wonder in your childโ€™s face as she experiences something for the first time, you cherish it and document it. Choosing to be thankful for the moments you do get rather the ones you didnโ€™t can be hard but itโ€™s so sweet when you can slow down and relish in them. #firstsnow #adoption #ethiopiatoamerica #ethiopia #habesha #raisingarrows #blessedquiver #freshpickedgrace #lovemakesafamily #choosingjoy #thankful

Fuzzy reindeer socks today as I finish up the last part of cycle 3 of my Rituxan. Hoping this helps with my symptoms, but if not, He is still good. Reminded again yesterday of how sharing our burdens with others allows for folks to lift us up in prayer, encourage us, and care for us. Thank you for all the encouragement yesterday and for your continued prayers! Never ceases to amaze me how God used others in my life to remind me of His love for me and the fact that He doesnโ€™t give up on me. โ€œCome let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the Lord our maker.โ€ Psalm 95:6 #choosingjoy

Remembering Frank today...Nine years ago today marked the worst day second only to Bryant's death ever. Having to tell your children that their dad has passed away is horrific and losing any hope of having your family restored seemed impossible to recover from. Thank you Lord for your faithfulness and the opportunities you give reminding me our pain is not in vain. ๐Ÿ’— #choosingjoy #hopethatdoesntdisappoint

Iโ€™m so grateful for my husband ๐Ÿ’• Heโ€™s made this birthday and every other day since I met him the very best. Heโ€™s truly the perfect fit for me and I know I wouldnโ€™t have been nearly as happy with anyone else! Heโ€™s the most thoughtful, goofy, sweet, humble guy ever and I feel so lucky to have found him ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’›๐ŸŽ‰ #psmyhairisup #itsnotthatshort

I weighed in today at 119lbs after eating as much as I could this weekend ๐Ÿ˜‚ 12.53% body fat with too many weeks to go until my show๐Ÿ˜‚ SO calories have been boosted to 2,300 a day. ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ bring on the sweet potatoes this week ๐Ÿ˜… #bikinilife #fitness #choosingjoy #workinprogress #motivationmonday

#MomOfTheYear

As moms and wives, sometimes we want to do it all. Sometimes we can do so much for everyone else, and run ourselves ragged or even get a good case of the grumps. Here to say....itโ€™s ok. Itโ€™s ok for paper plates, and plastic utensils, and pre-made food. Itโ€™s ok! Iโ€™ve scaled it down a lot this year in the kitchen. This year Iโ€™d like to give the gift of a happy heart, and not run myself ragged. Can you relate? #inspirationalMOMent #myinspirationeducation #inspirationeducation #happyheartholidays #choosingjoy

Happy Tuesday!!! Congrats you have made it past the Monday hump!!!! Here's to slaying the rest of the week!!!

Starting your day with some exercise is the bomb!

Morning exercise will jumpstart your entire being!
Even if you only do some jumping jacks.
Your heart will get your blood pumping,
And your mind will wake up.
You will be setting the course for a fantastic day! โ€œBut Iโ€™m too tired.โ€ โ€œBut I have too much to do.โ€
Give morning exercise a shot!!!
Try it on for a week and see how it makes you feel. Try going to bed a bit earlier and get up a bit earlier.
You may get to the point that morning exercise is a no brainer!

As you know, I have some great options for making some healthy changes with nutrition and fitness. Contact me!

Soaking in a Florida sunrise post sweat session.

Kids are both still sleeping. Allowing them the rest they need and leaving as soon as they are ready.
Such a peaceful feeling when you allow vacations to just happen. Friday and Saturday I let my expectations control my attitude towards the trip. Sunday I decided to let it happen as it was meant to be...and while alexis is still dealing with some asthma related issues from whatever virus she had, weโ€™re all just having an amazing time.

We dedicated this little fella at church on Sunday. From his conception, he has had a destiny to fulfill. The entire church prayed for that to happen. Some of us are discouraged with the twists and turns of our lives. It's never too late to make a change. I look at each day as an opportunity to make a difference and live passionately. Every morning can be a new beginning. It's our choice. #choosingjoy #baby #futurehope #lovelife #dontgiveup #joy #lifeisgood #momlife #bubbielove

First afternoon in Mcleodganj invited to a lovely wedding. #tashidelek #mcleodganj #india #traveller #beingkaren #choosingjoy

(Posted this on my story last night, but felt it needed to be reiterated.) God also knows what we need and when we need it. As we wrapped up this season of lifegroup tonight, there arenโ€™t words to describe how much joining a lifegroup has meant over the last couple months. One of the deepest desires of my heart has been to find a mentor, someone who I can go to for wise Biblical council or encouragement. God brought someone into my life at just the right time. Man, He is good guys. So incredibly good. His timing is perfect and His plans are better than we could ever imagine. #choosingjoy #faithoverfear

Choosing to be grateful for the Southern Trains cancellation this afternoon, as I wouldnโ€™t have seen London lights otherwise ๐Ÿ˜‡โฃ๏ธ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป. Understanding that it is entirely up to us how we respond to the challenges in our life, from minor incidents to major detours. May we always find the wisdom and strength to see the beauty around and just live in the moment... #londonlights #magicaroundus #mondaygift #choosingjoy #gratefulheart #justlife #livinginthemoment

I like choosing joy so much that itโ€™s began to be a fun challenge to accept an old pattern of anger or sadness and switch it into joy. We all have the power to make every moment what we wish. The question for yourself is, what are you choosing? And the follow up - is it serving the outcome you want?

Weโ€™ve lived in our home for almost 3 years - the longest weโ€™ve ever lived in a place together. As someone who thrives off change and gets the itch to move quite often - I am reminded today how thankful I am for our lil cottage tucked away in a quiet pocket in the midst of downtown chaos. I am choosing to be content and live it up in this season of life we are in. It is so so sweet and beautiful. A time of just โ€œusโ€ that I donโ€™t want to ever end. Instead of thinking, where are we going to live next? Do we want kids? Want to move to another state (not all itโ€™s cracked up to be, trust me)? What job will I have in 5 years? What trip can we go on? I am choosing to think, wow we live in a simple lil home in a great location, we have such a wonderful community of friends here, we live in AUSTIN FREAKIN TEXAS, I am married to my hot best friend, we found a church we love dearly, I have an adorable poodle, I get to do something I love for work, and most of all - we are blessed with the best families ever. SO EASY to forget ALL of those things. Iโ€™m sure Iโ€™ll bring up where we should move next or some other kind of change tomorrow. But not today! ๐Ÿ–ค #choosingjoy

Starting today I am โ€œnever drinking againโ€ ๐Ÿคข haha but really. It is fun for a few hours but completely ruins my productivity that day, the next day and the next day. I have awesome goals that I AM going to smash! And drinking is one thing that sometimes turns me away from those goals, I donโ€™t need that in my life. Soooo....I am posting this to make sure I keep myself accountable for this promise I am making to myself โ˜บ๏ธ if anyone wants to join me in a cafe to work on goals, let me know! ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’• #todayisagoodday

As the clock counts down to #CHRISTmas it's easy to get caught up in the stuff to do and the stuff to buy and the stuff to worry about. Christmas isn't about #stuff . It's about #jesus it's about #family and it's about #choosingjoy in the midst of busyness. It's about focusing on what really matters. #choosejoy #choosepeace #chooselove #lovealwayswins

My to-do list for today and the rest of the week feels daunting and overwhelming. So Iโ€™m just gonna take a deep breath, make my list. Line up my priorities, roll up my sleeves and get to it. Happy Monday everyone! #mondaymotivation #fitsciencemom #yougotthis #workinghard

Ignoring whatโ€™s happening outside and instead remembering the joyful colour and flavour winter CAN bring.

I remember this feeling all too well ๐Ÿ–ค
โœ–๏ธ
Frustrations with my physical limitations.
Insecure with my appearance.
Mourning what my body used to be capable of.
Uncomfortable in my skin.

It's how I felt after having Brayden. And those feelings are starting to creep back up with this injury.
The difference between now and then is that I know what it takes to fix this flawed mindset -- to kick my inner mean girl in the face and mark the calendar for my epic come back๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿผ I'm not telling you to join me. I just think you're crazy not to ๐Ÿ˜#thatsonyou

I donโ€™t know where these feet will take me in life, but youโ€™d best believe Iโ€™ll be wearing cute shoes. ๐Ÿ“ธPC: super hot husbabe @astraight2012

Some days are more emotionally charged than others... I sense a theme this week. ๐Ÿ’†๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ Iโ€™m working on praying through hard emotions, challenging myself to give more of my time to God and my family and having more fun. ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป

Not so well-known is what a very difficult season I've been, and am in currently. {blog post coming soon..}
It's been a tough month+.
Last evening we *finally* got to physically be IN church after weeks of streaming sermons. {SOO good to be IN the house of the Lord!} it was definitely a boost we all needed.
When we got home I opened my email and was not prepared for the words that were Divinely sent for me to read: "Desperation fosters dependence, so Run to Him."
Words that leapt off the screen and hit my heart like electricity.. causing tears to stream and my soul convicted, crying out to Jesus. And in that moment, I was broken and instantly wrapped in the loving embrace of the Holy Spirit. I could hear Him whisper "I'm here.. I've got you.." .
I continued to read the email; a devo from Kyle Idleman, the author of "Not a Fan" and this was was an excerpt from his devotional book. .
Immanuel: God with us. With Me. As seemingly lonely and hard as this season is- I have a loving Father who is holding me- Us. I don't have to walk this alone- unless I choose to. .
So today while surrounded by some of my favorite things, Im refocused on Him Who is most important. I'm digging deeper. Seeking Him desperately, and reminded that with Him, In His presence, my world is not desolate. Immanuel: God IS with me. The sanctification process continues.. Psalm 142
