As we head into 2018 my heart overflows with gratitude for the days, the moments we leave behind. God is always working on each of us. In 2017, He continued to teach me so much about myself and others. 

Over the weekend, my husband and I were in the car talking. My eyes filled with tears as I vulnerably shared with him. God has opened doors; doors I never dreamed about. Opportunities that I am so grateful for. He has also asked me to lay things down. As I look around, I see people doing awesome, amazing things. Unintentionally, I begin to compare our paths. I can feel like I am not enough. Yet, God reminds me every single time that I am right where I need to be. 

As I shared out loud with my husband, it was so eye opening, so freeing to say the words. While yes, success and affirmation from the world can feel great for a brief moment; nothing compares to following God’s path. It is always covered with grace, mercy, and infinite love.

As I follow Him, my focus becomes so clear. Slowing down and being intentional with our family has brought such peace and abundance. Having space in our days; margin in my own schedule to be still, to enjoy motherhood more deeply, is something that is truly unrivaled.

As we begin a new year, my prayer is that I will never forget to keep Him as my compass. 

Thank you for being here, for sharing your authentic and raw stories with me, time and time again. This community is such a gift. Never stop being YOU and don’t forget you aren’t alone. 

Happy New Year! .
“Here I am
All my intentions
All my obsessions
I want to lay them all down
In Your hands
Only Your love is vital
Though I'm not entitled
Still You call me Your child
God You don't need me
But somehow You want me
Oh how You love me
Somehow that frees me
To take my hands off of my life
And the way it should go
God You don't need me
But somehow You want me
Oh how You love me
Somehow that frees me
To open my hands up
And give You control
I give You control”
