What is your daily skin care routine? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For me it has got to be 7-8 hrs of sleep + 2.5-3L water + PA+++ sunblock on a daily basis 💤💦☀️ Add in some daily hydration sheet mask, some good ol eye cream and lip balm, and you’re all set! Hydration is key ladies ✨ #alwaysthirsty@timezart@aiwamakeup@beautinelle_malaysia
I love trips. I love looking up flights, booking car rentals, figuring out drives but I'm terrible at making plans or actual decisions- figuring out where or what to do, where to go- no thanks.
It doesn't give me crippling anxiety but it does make me anxious. Typically I go with a standard "idk" when asked what's the plan? Boy do I know how frustrating this can be for people who travel with me.
I'm working on being more of a decision maker once the trip is taking place or going to take place but I know part of my inability to make decision is my desire to make everyone happy- to make sure we're doing what they want.
Hey, we're all a bit of a work in progress. I'm just taking longer than most.
For now, thanks for just rolling with it.
Grab your crew and bring them tomorrow! You don’t wanna miss out on all God has for you!
Tomorrow. 8pm. Dixon Chapel.
You always have the opportunity to be happy, learn to understand the bumps in the road, grow from them and S T A Y positive!
I tell myself each day, I know it can get hard, but don’t get worked over things you can’t change or people you don’t understand. It’s not worth the anxiety and the headache. Control only what you can. Control the controllable.
L e t. I t. G o.
You are beautiful.
You are unique.
You are chosen.
You are worthy.
You are capable.
You are loved. ✨✨✨✨✨
Sisterhood, community, tribe, team, my people. ⠀
Whatever you call it, we all need it. ⠀
The gorgeous girl to my left is a mama of two boys, a nurse practitioner and lives in Missouri. I met her solely because of coaching and so glad she was brought into my life!⠀
The beautiful girl on my right is a school social worker, a dog mom and now fiancé. We were college roomies and I’ve known her for 9 years now (say what?!)⠀
Not only does this opportunity allow me to meet new friends I never would meet otherwise but it also allows me to grow closer to the ones I already have in my life.
Every day I feel blessed and thankful that I have a group of women to fall back on. I know I can send any one of the girls on my team a text when I need something, big or small. ⠀
I need this in my life and I know you do too. Link arms with us, let’s do this 💕
Do you ever feel like a bit of a loner?
My whole life I have been surrounded by people. Being one of 12 children meant we never needed to look outside of our family for play dates or social interaction, so I have never been great at cultivating friendships and breaking out of my bubble to meet people and build long-term friend relationships.
As an adult I have become a homebody to the max, and I have often thought, why aren’t I good at making friends? By nature I am an introvert, shy, and don’t love being put on the spot, but I crave friendships and connection with other women, I just hadn’t figured out how to find my people and build my tribe in a way that made me feel that I belong.
Until I became a coach. .
I can honestly say that through what I do as a coach, I have found true friendships that feed my soul, and have me feeling connected and young again! I have reconnected with true friends from my past and today was a perfect example of how I chose to spend time with a friend who is important to me, that in the past, I wouldn’t have held space for, because we live kind of far apart and our schedules don’t align, and it’s not just smooth and easy. As I become more of the person I want to be, I find I am attracting the people and the opportunities into my day, to cultivate beautiful friendships that I have craved and ignored for so long. .
So if you are craving true friendship, the feeling of belonging, of support, of laughter, and of creating together, I encourage you to reach out because I know that when we go outside of our comfort zones, and leave our safe routine, we experience beautiful, fresh, invigorating moments and people, and I am so thankful for my friendships, new and old, that bring me joy, and make me better💕
A typical day for me includes movement. It is completely different me, than when I got into this fitness world. Being open to change & doing it got me here today.
I was the Starbucks daily, fast food for about 2 meals a day, no exercise, sleeping crappy, stomach trouble having, didn’t like what I felt like Christan then.
Now it’s way more high vibe around me, and I’m proud of that. I don’t spend $175 on Starbucks a month now. Nor do I eat Burger King for breakfast & Taco Bell for lunch. There are way less sleepless nights and even fewer stomach troubles.
Most importantly, I like who I am. I’m no where near as self critical, judgmental of myself or struggling with horrible self talk.
I’ve changed. I’m grateful for that. Change. It’s not a dirty word so let’s stop treating it like one 😘
We all have made mistakes in the past. We have all failed at something or let ourselves or someone else down in some way. Those moments and events we never forget and we don't need anyone reminding us of them.
Surround yourself with people who are not constantly reminding you of past mistakes or failures but instead motivate and inspire you to look forward with passion and confidence.
Small groups are almost here!! There's no better place to get connected and find community than in NewSound Small Groups! Fall semester groups start September 8th!
As part of our TO THE FULL theme this year, we will be embracing life and learning to #FearLess .
2nd Timothy 1:7 tells us, "For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and selfdiscipline."
Power, Love, and Self-Discipline. All qualities that encompass the essence of motherhood. .
As mothers, we have the power to change the world. We are making a difference and raising the next generation who will go on to shape the future. There's an old adage, "The hand that rocks the cradle, rules the world," and at #MOPS, we recognize the importance of a mother's role.
As mothers, we show our children and families love with every load of clothes washed, every snack packed, and every tear kissed away. Our children will know how to trust, love and form lasting, healthy relationships because of the love we show them. We are their first instructor in what it is to truly love.
Finally, as mothers, we have one of the most time-consuming, emotionally-taxing, and self-sacrificing jobs there is. We don't get off-days. We can't call in sick. We push through it all because we know tiny lives depend on us to be there and be disciplined. Self-discipline is truly a trait at the very core of motherhood.
So this year at MOPS, we will embrace and share our lives, roles and common burdens, together . We are all part of the sacred tribe that is motherhood and we will be there for each other for every step of the way, until our task is complete.
Join us this year at Beaverton MOPS & MOMSnext — follow link in profile for details.

Work, family, more work, household shit, more work... AAAAHHHHH!
Do you ever just look at your To Do List and think, “There is no way I could ever get this all done!!” Well girl you are not alone.
Everyday I seem to add more items to that monstrous list and it can totally overwhelm me... or at least it used to.
Check out my 6 tips to clearing that To Do List and getting more done each day in my most recent (and only one from 2019) IGTV.
Let me know which tip helped you the best!

I remember when I decided to start these programs I was so turned off by the whole “challenge group” thing. I had been in one a few years prior and just didn’t love it. I even went as far as telling @awilliams17 “I don’t do well in those challenge group things!” HA! Turns out I was wrong! 🤦🏻♀️😂
This group was exactly what I needed & it motivated me to show up because I wanted to see what all my babes were up to. It is even a huge reason I became a coach because I thought, “More people need to experience this magic!” 🌈Seriously, the girls in #OwnYourJourney have become like family! We don’t just hop in and post our sweaty selfies. Oh no, we encourage, we support, we dig deep together, and we post ridiculous GIFs EVERY SINGLE DAY! They are MY PEOPLE & without them this journey would not be nearly as fun!! 👯♀️💛
So what better way to share this magic than to host a little SNEAK PEEK into our tribe on Friday over on FB!! What it is...why it’s important....how to join... all of the deets. But more importantly, you’ll get to see the IMPACT this group has had on those that have fully embraced it! 🙌🏽
Intrigued?! Drop a 💛 and I’ll get you added! Zero obligation. Just come be a fly on the wall! 👀
**not pictured is our newest OYJ addition... the lovely @jodindavidson_!! 😍💪🏽

Ya’ll we are called to be good and faithful stewards of the things God has blessed us with—why? Because they’re HIS creation and it honors HIM. That means we must be mindful to keep our bodies healthy, our minds and hearts full of His Truth, and caring for the earth.
What does that look like? It means working and tending the land, using the resources God provided for our nourishment ( #supportlocalagriculture#ethicalfarming) Feeding our bodies with natural foods, limiting the extra processed junk, and filling up on things that support our overall wellness. Being mindful of what trash and toxins we are putting out into the air and ground. Caring for your loved ones mental and physical health. Seeking the Lord in all things and gracefully and intentionally living out the life He has you in right now.
Ultimately, we as humanity, cannot fix what is broken but we can be better stewards of what’s around us. We can stop using in excess, destroying natural resources for the sake of a penny, throwing trash on the ground as if it’s nothing, and stop putting toxins in our bodies and earth that we KNOW are not beneficial.
So the next time you go to throw away your single plastic container, use a straw, wash your Clorox or household cleaner down the drain, empty your pretty soap bottle on the ground outside, think about where that will end up. In your city drainage, the ocean, the river down the street, the animals stomach hunted for food. 🤷🏻♀️ #toxicfreeliving#youngliving#younglivingessentialoils (PS I fully respect those who are vegans and vegetarians for the sake of animals—Plz no arguments about this here as we have different views & I still love ya 🙃)
Hi There 👋🏼! Yep, that's right ... this is a Family Business.
We are a husband and wife duo that packs a serious punch when it comes to Marketing! 👩💻👨💻Brains and Beauty, Can you guess who does what?
And don't worry we only let the baby handle the simple tasks!😂
“Find your people and keep them close. Because they are the best thing that has ever happened to you.” 🙂
4 years ago I had no intention of building and leading a team. .
I had no plan for my journey to be anything more than just that... My journey. .
But I had a strong belief that what I was doing could benefit others, especially my mama friends. .
This lady, my friend Robyn @holiday sticfitnurse was one of the first ones to say yes to join me in 2015, And then she found out she was pregnant with her third precious baby girl. 💕 .
Robyn is one busy mama, ss you can imagine, so in November of 2017 when I asked her to join me for a week of clean eating And workouts, I thought she would say no 😂 this is an objection I hear often. “I’m too busy” or “I don’t have the time.” .
But she said yes, and I was so excited! Not only do her three girls keep her busy, but she also works full time as a Holistic Health Nurse in the Pediatric Hematology and Oncology Unit, and is also a licensed massage therapist and RN. As you can imagine, her job is physically and emotionally demanding. And she doesn’t have a lot of time. .
But that didn’t stop her! She jumped in with both feet and hasn’t looked back! Not only has she rocked out her own personal journey these past 21 months, she is helping others do the same. .
Today our team got to celebrate this amazing lady for helping others. She’s an inspiration. She’s an amazing leader on our team, but most importantly she’s my friend. Robyn I’m so proud of you and I can’t wait for our next retreat! ❤️🎉 Keep inspiring. Keep shaking your journey. Keep crushing your goals. ❤️ .
We can’t wait for this Thursday! We have so many cool things going on this week!
Here are 5 reasons why you should be here Thursday night at 8pm in the Dixon Chapel across from the library!
1. Amazing Worship
2. Incredible word from Past Noah
3. Awesome Community
4. 🚨 GIVEAWAY of a Brand NEW MacBook Air
5. FREE Chick-Fil-A for the first 100 people
My best advice for anyone struggling to find their “place” or where they belong? Don’t be afraid to look outside of the bubble you put yourself in.
We all have our comfort zones.
I mean, I stayed in mine for a good 25 years of my life.
But when I chose to break the bubble a year ago after feeling pretty alone and unsure of myself, I was introduced to women who became the positive + supportive light I needed ✨
They lifted me up during a very stressful first year of teaching. I was in a new state without family or friends nearby, and frankly I was scared SHITLESS.
What started as a way to hold myself accountable in my health+fitness journey, turned into a sisterhood that I leaned on when life threw some curveballs my way.
So I’m here to tell you that you don’t have to do life alone. There are others out there wanting to feel that sense of belonging and encouragement just like you.
Don’t be afraid to say yes 🙏🏻 Cause girl, I know what it’s like to feel stuck and alone. I was there a year ago.
This feeling I have now though..surrounded by others who radiate positivity and encouragement? It’s indescribable 💕
Be around people that are good for your soul.
People who continuously make you laugh.
People who support you even if they don’t understand.
People who are inspired by your passion rather than trying to one up you.
People who have your best interest at heart.
People who may be a little crazy or loud but that’s what makes them, them.
People who understand & respect your homebody or introverted personality.
People who sneak their niece Reese’s cups.
Well, maybe that last one isn’t that important. But fine your people who would do anything for you no matter what.
Because the people that truly love us will never leave us. They will be there through the low points & celebrate with you through the high points. They are the people you lean in to, the people you tell first when you have exciting news, the people you vent to, & the people who don’t get tired of your endless rants🖤
If you haven’t found your people yet, don’t worry they will come. But if you want a group to lean into now, either slide into my DMs or send me an email & I’ll tell you about my virtual tribe that have opened my eyes & changed everything for me.

I’ve recently got back into the water after an extended break from swimming. I found a really active Facebook group of local outdoor swimmers and after a few weeks of shyly lurking in the background, I literally took the plunge and joined them for a swim. It is glorious. The silky feel of the river water on my skin, surrounded by nature, surrounded by likeminded people. It soothes my soul, and some days I really need that.
All this to say: find your thing. Find your people. Whether it’s swimming, knitting, painting, or binge watching Supernatural (that last one may be just me; where my people at?), finding - or forming - a community around things that are important to you can really lift you up (AW)
