Marriage monday 👰 I love this picture, its from our first look. I love how he looked at me when he saw me for the first time 😍 Its so important how we view eachother not just on days like this but everyday and especially on hard days. Every marriage has days where we are tempted to view our spouse in a negative light. Its very easy to see their flaws when we are upset or when they are not acting the nicest. Something that has been huge for our marriage is always trying to think the best about the other person even if their behavior is not modelling that at the moment. We really try to seperate the behavior and try to see whats really going on. We used to fight alot and fuel eachothers anger but now we have really purposed to stop and to view eachother through the eyes of love. Gods love is powerful and it also changes things. I had a season where I really disected 1cor 13, well know as the love chapter... Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things Now this love is powerful and if we apply it to our lives it will change things. I have seen it first hand in my marriage. Its challenging but if we let it, it will change us too. Now I dont always apply this in the moment but my prayer is that this kind of love becomes my default ❤ What is something that has helped you love your spouse on the hard days?

As a deer pants for water, so my soul thirsts for you and when I survey Your splendor, You so faithfully renew- Like a bed of rest for my fainting flesh... I am satisfied in You. -Psalm 42 by The Sing Team

Remember that only the things that I call you to do with Me will bring you joy—the deep, true joy that makes you glad you are living and that give you energy and excitement to raise that weary head of yours to face another day. . The things I call you to do with Me may make you tired, your body growing weary from work and your heart aching from the love I give you for others. But your soul is not weary. . Your hope in Me and the joy you have in completing with Me the task I have given you to do spurs you on so that you can’t imagine life before this joy. . But you do remember, don’t you?

Last winter, we had no idea where in the world we would be living and working next. This past June we left our beautiful home in Bali. This summer we rested and enjoyed friends and family. Now we’re building a new life in Mexico. If I drew a photo of the seasons we’ve walked through this past year, it would be a huge rollercoaster! Consider your life’s circumstances and your walk. What spiritual season are you experiencing? • Are you in a season of prosperity? Stay present, soak up every minute, sit in gratitude, stand in awe, praise, laugh and dance. Take this time to write about his goodness. • Are you in a season of uncertainty or waiting? Pray consistently, dig into the word, tune into God’s voice, enjoy the unknowns. Giving up control allows God to show his faithfulness. • Are you in a tough season? Identify this time as a “season,” be mindful of what you watch and listen to, take rest in his arms, choose obedience, worship fervently. Know God is using this moment to teach and shape you. • And no matter the season, choose joy in all circumstances. ☺️

I’ve never met a woman who hasn’t struggled with insecurity - especially insecurity about their body. ⠀ ⠀ Yet when I feel insecure about my body, I feel so alone. Scrolling, double tapping, commenting, taking it all in. We don’t even realize what is happening, but as we consume perfectly curated feeds, we are brainwashed to believe that those aesthetics are the normal standard... ⠀ ⠀ But they aren’t. And it’s time we start contributing towards a new standard that prioritizes truth over lies and transparency over fabrication. ⠀ ⠀ This message is part of the foundation of The Authentic Woman.

#BTS The Sabrina Dress is a new arrival and a stunner! As creative director, I decided that a more edgy hair look was needed and this razor cut bob really elevates the look. It's a "Femme Fatale" look for holiday party slayage. 💅💅😁 .... Hair/ Makeup / Styling by yours truly. The @ardellbeauty Double Wispie lashes are my favs and go to for all makeup looks. Get you some! .... 📸@chriszranchev

#BTS of New Arrivals. The Simone Set from @thestylishedit is ultra glam and a nod to menswear trend. You'll be a Femme Fatale in this look at your next holiday pordee (party) or girls night out. 🍾🍾🍾 ...... Anyone that knows me knows I don't let ANYONE sit on my white custom sofa. The Simone Set really popped against it so I had to make the sacrifice. I had a mini heart attack when she put her FOOT on the sofa. But we had to get THE shot. Can't wait to see the final edits @chriszranchev 📸📸 ...... Hair/Makeup by me. 💅💅

I think somewhere in between it got twisted, the idea of who we’re supposed to be. You see, society likes to tell us we have to do more, we have to be more, we have to present ourselves in such a way others find us appealing. I mean just look around, people are famous, and making an income because they are liked by thousands, even millions. Yet that’s not always the case though, not every person on this Earth is known by thousands or millions of people, heck some aren’t even known by a hundred people. + to be completely honest it doesn’t matter how many people know you or rather how known you are. Because guess what? Every single person, (yes, you) are known by the Creator of the Universe. + do you know what He’s saying tonight? He’s saying He knows you. Jeremiah 1:5 states, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.” Did you read + grasp that? God knew you before you were born + He chose you as a prophet to the nations. So dear one, stop comparing, selling yourself short + letting unworthiness creep into your mind because you my dear are so worthy + are oh so precious in the eyes of the Lord. You are chosen + so very known by the One who knows everything. -you matter #freelovedandworthy

So much easier said than done, but so necessary. There’s a reason for every season of our lives. Some will stretch us, some will renew us, and some will downright depress us. But, every season has great, great purpose in our lives, and we must trust in God, and in His timing always. . . His plans are greater. His way is perfect. Cherish whatever season you’re in right now. . . There’s some tips on the blog today about cherishing your hard seasons + I share a story about a time I was in a really rough season and how leaning in to God’s purpose allowed me to come out of it completely renewed.

Complain, complain, complain. Sound familiar? Everyone has an opinion and everyone thinks it should be heard. (Guilty!) How do we stop the incessant complaining that pours out of us? Do what Psalm 34:1 says, 'constantly speak of His glories and grace.' If you're speaking of His glory and His grace and His goodness then there's no room for complaining. • It's officially Thanksgiving week, in just a few short days we'll gather around tables with family and friends to give thanks and celebrate God's goodness. It can be easy in these days leading up to it to be frustrated, stressed and overwhelmed. Don't let these things steal your joy! Choose to constantly speak of God's goodness! When you're standing in a line that doesn't seem to move or traffic that's at a complete standstill, recount His faithfulness to you. When the mashed potatoes are lumpy and the green bean casserole is still half frozen and the rolls are burnt - laugh, smile and look at your table and those beautiful faces and thank God for such an amazing gift. They aren't there for the food anyway, they're there for the fellowship, family, laughter and love. • Make the decision right now that no matter what happens this week, your lips will drip with His praise. #thankful
