1st blog entry on #MOOT🌊
I have met and continue to meet amazing and awe-inspiring people on my journey. Some seem almost unexplainable, like they literally just fall from the sky - #angelsfromheaven
If I might admit.
This one particular post is about an individual named #jaccimendelsohn@the_realtor_that_gives_back who literally defines this post to the 'T.' I met her a year ago online in a chat about a #childrensfundraisingevent that she was coordinating in #MantecaCA.
Ironically, our first business meeting was about fundraising with #childrensbooks and led to the interesting unknown fact that both her and I are #Authors of books that share our own life jouneys. Hers is already published and my is set to release this November 2019.
Tonight, I decided to read her book.
Just the title itself [ #WHISPERS Hearing God's Call in the Dark], not only caught my eye immediately, but sparked my interest to open it and begin reading right away.
I could not believe the more I read, the more it pulled me in.
The similarities of our journeys are paralleled.
As I read further, the hair on my arms rose , for the mere fact - without knowing - my book also shares how I questioned the existence and power of God, resisted to committing to a denomination, yet - I began believing I recieved messages from God. It's truly unreal how there is so much more her and I can relate to just by comparison of what I'm reading about.
It makes sense now, why we seem so comfortable with one anothers company, work well together without direction, can already read the body language or tone of each others end of day...because our journeys mirror in similar experiences, emotions, and wisdom acquired from these life lessons.
I highly recommend you check out her book to see for yourself how life threw curveballs at her and how she was able to utilize her dreams and the whispers of Gods call in the Dark , to find the help needed to cross a barrier of hate & fustration to love and healing.

Beauty has so many forms, and I think the most beautiful thing is confidence and loving yourself. Positivity, confidence, and persistence are key in life, so never give up on yourself. You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.
This guy. I’m so proud of him, and I’m so lucky that he’s been my husband for 10 years.
1. He doesn’t say no to crazy ideas. When I knew it was time to leave my job and be an entrepreneur, he said yes. When I knew it was time to get a job again, he said yes. He’s supportive and my biggest dream defender.
2. He dreams big and chases them. When he decided to brew beer, he threw himself all in to learning. A year plus and several awards later, I’d say he’s done okay.
3. He’s not afraid to ask for opportunities. Sometimes it’s hard for me to watch because it’s the opposite of me. But often I leave encouraged because he asks and either gets a yes or rebounds quickly from a “not right now.” Honestly though, there are way more yes-es and I love how he goes for it (and aspire to do the same). 4. He always challenges everyone around him to be better. He pushes himself, seeks to improve, and supports others in doing that. I love watching him grow and he always pushes me to do the same.
We are true partners and I couldn’t have chosen a better one. Love you, boo!
Sometimes in life it’s hard to see the end of a struggle. What is SO GREAT is that God likes you use those difficult times to make us stronger. Life is a journey. Embrace the season that God has placed you in RIGHT NOW!

“All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness” - 2 Timothy 3:16 | Photo and art by @craxyrabbit
A reminder to stay strong and trust the process!
“How would it glorify Christ if the Spirit created in us all kinds of good feelings with no reference to Jesus and His cross and resurrection? It wouldn’t. So the way the Spirit inspires and sustains joy in our lives is by humbly and quietly enabling us to see the beauty of Christ in the Word. Then our joy consciously arises from the truth about Christ, and He is glorified, but the Spirit remains the behind-the-scenes power that opened the eyes of our hearts. Thus we pray earnestly for the indispensable work of the Spirit, but we look earnestly to the indispensable Word of God.” // John Piper (from When I Don’t Desire God)
We should have a faith that never gets tamed. Is your faith like this?
Be prepared. You’re up against far more than you can handle on your own. Take all the help you can get, every weapon God has issued, so that when it’s all over but the shouting you’ll still be on your feet. Truth, righteousness, peace, faith, and salvation are more than words. Learn how to apply them. You’ll need them throughout your life. God’s Word is an indispensable weapon.
🔈J2 can comfortably count to 3 on his own (because “I’m 3 years old!”) and has taken an interest in the numbers in First Bible Basics. Introducing numbers to him in the context of our faith has led to simple conversations about God - and I believe that His truth is taking root in his precious heart through these moments.
J2 likes to get to number 4 with this book because his name sounds like one of the 4 Gospels - you can hear him count on this video with a little help from me 😄.
You can see (and hear) the rest of the pages on our Stories.👦🏻
It’s crazy how much you can learn about someone, by listening to how many times they say ‘I’ in a conversation.
It’s also crazy how good rain smells when you haven’t had it in a while.
If they ever make a cologne with that same scent... BRUH, game over.
I’d gladly drench @reggiethemastiff and myself in it everyday.
I’d freaking bathe in that stuff 24/7 haha.
Anyways, I hope you spend your weekend doing something that tickles your fancy, with people that matter to you✌🏽
FRIDAY FUN DAY!! Homeschool group field trip to the pumpkin farm!!! Blessed with a beautiful, sunny day hanging out with friends!! I love this homeschooling journey!!! If it’s ever crossed your mind, TRULY consider it and start asking questions to any and all homeschooling moms you know!! I was super nervous and scared to do it, but’s it’s been the BEST decision for our family!!!
Last night, thanks to the help of my church small group, I had a 💡 moment. We spend our days, weeks, and months telling ourselves “I just need to get through ________ and then things will slow down”. If I had a dollar for every time I have said that to a friend or family member, I could buy a lot of things at Costco 😏
I was asking for prayer from our small group for Andrew and I to be able to find some peace in this crazy time of life. Without realizing what kind of peace I was talking about, I meant earthly peace. Before small group ended, someone said “I wish someone had told me this when I was younger, but life never gets less crazy, it never gets less busy. When one thing finishes another thing pops up. We can have peace going through the chaos, but that peace comes from within our soul”... 🤯 I never realized that while I was striving for peace in my life by trying to be more efficient, trying to get more things done, trying to find more routine, wondering what I was doing wrong and asking myself why can’t I figure this out, I was missing the fact that WE 👏🏼 NEVER 👏🏼 FIGURE 👏🏼 IT 👏🏼 OUT 👏🏼
It’s the hope we have in Christ, the peace of the one true King, that gives us peace in our soul through the chaos of life. I have never felt so much TRUE PEACE as I felt in that moment when I realized this. I can have peace because it is well with my soul. I don’t have to figure out how this simple life thing works cause our life on earth is not simple. So if you’re like me and you keep asking, “ why can’t I get this figured out?!”, the answer is you can’t, and I hope you’re able to find some peace within your heart today 💛 #itiswell#princeofpeace#fridayfeels
Trust me I've fallen off the wagon too!!
January I tore my calf and up until July I couldn't do any type of intense workouts, running, jumps, heavy lifting or anything like that.
I rememeber EVERYONE in my network was getting hyped about starting MM100 and I actually almost passed it up to continue light workouts, not having enough faith that I could successfully complete it without reinjuring myself.
I am sooooo glad I didn't give up that opportunity!!!
𝐓𝐇𝐈𝐒 𝗪𝐀𝐒 𝐌𝐘 𝐅𝐀𝐕𝐎𝐑𝐈𝐓𝐄 𝐏𝐑𝐎𝐆𝐑𝐀𝐌 & 𝐈'𝐕𝐄 𝐆𝐎𝐓𝐓𝐄𝐍 𝐌𝐘 𝐁𝐄𝐒𝐓 𝐑𝐄𝐒𝐔𝐋𝐓𝐒 𝐈𝐍 𝐉𝐔𝐒𝐓 𝟑𝟎 𝐌𝐈𝐍𝐒 𝐀 𝐃𝐀𝐘!!
The favorite part was to see how I was able to progress through the weeks. I got faster, more coordinated, and had to modify less. PLUS of course I loved my core results!!!
Results don't come if you don't have faith and consistency. I'm not going to lie and say that the beginning or process is easy... but I will say the results are definitely worth it!!
100 WORKOUTS COMPLETED ✔
Fun fact: I don’t do much to my hair. I barely go to the salon. 🙆🏻♀️ I’m always overdue for a haircut but I can do that because I take really good care of it...aka I do nothing and don’t add anything to it. 😆 Sometimes I take it for granted. However, I’ve been considering wigs for a long time. I sometimes want big curly hair or to switch up the color without the high maintenance. What is your relationship with your hair?
In this pic @styledby.dreanicole gave me a bomb haircut. Thanks, girl! 😚😚😚
Trials and tribulations are sometimes in your life because God placed them there. This season has been hard but I know that greatness is on the other side if I keep praying, surrendering and trying! .
Whatever you are going through, have trust and faith that good times are on the way! I’m sending love and virtual hugs to anyone who reads this and feels it resonate with them!!
Last night we had a great #FaithPromise event with our friends and supporters. To God be the glory!
What are you thanking God for this weekend?
