"you see, somewhere along the way, i (subconsciously) began to measure my worth as a human by numbers. the number of likes i received or didn’t receive, the number of followers next to my name… all of these numbers had the ability to make my worth soar or sink.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
lots of likes/followers = worthy, wanted.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
fewer likes/followers = unworthy, unwanted.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
this value system is unsustainable. it’s toxic. because when you measure yourself by any kind of number, you’ll never measure up in the long run.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
i love instagram. it’s a powerful tool. like any powerful tool, it can be used to build up or tear down. and i still love numbers. numbers are important because there are real life people with real souls behind those numbers. numbers measure impact.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
but when numbers become the ruler for your life and you start to lose your soul in the screen, things get dangerous."

love these words by our friend callie., you are more than the likes, friend. your worth does not depend on the rise and fall of your follower count. you are a heart and soul. you are loved.❤️

The kids and i took a break from playing indoors like we have been doing since it’s been hot out to go play up on the mountain. today’s weather was way too beautiful to stay inside! from that high, on a clear day, you can see clear to tijuana, catalina island, the san bernardino mountains, and much more. i wore my disney mountain shirt, too, courtesy of @parkhoppersonparade__ 🗻

One day they’re weaning, and the next they’re the one in the driver seat. basically. 😭
.
motherhood is such a trip, isn’t it?! i was a wreck for the entire month of july. moving past that phase of babyhood was harder than i’d imagined, and i spent a lot of days crying, holed up in my room. the grief was real and i’m glad i let myself go all the way through it. after a month of teetering on the edge of depression, i finally felt like i’d had enough sadness and i wanted to move past it. i’ll share more about that another time, but what i want other mamas to know right now is that it’s okay to feel sad sometimes. it’s okay to go through all the deep emotions as your babies grow up and need you less and less. allow yourself to feel and to grieve if necessary. use your emotional support oils if you have them, share your feelings with someone, pray your way through it. you’ll come through it a better mama with more appreciation for the holy work you’re doing. 💜
.
thanks for letting me share these bits and pieces of my story here. i’ve experienced so much love and support from this amazing community and i’m truly grateful for you all!! 😘

It’s crazy the things you find when your parents move...here a little throwback to my first hood to coast relay as a junior in high school. before they had the high school challenge race. #throwback #runningisneverboring #joyinthejourney #hoodtocoastrelay1995 #hoodtocoast

Life is like a balloon. if you never let yourself go, you’ll never know how far you can rise! 🎈🎈🎈

If you guys haven’t read a tribe called bliss yet jump over to amazon now and order it pronto! make sure you read it with a few girlfriends because you’ll get so much more from it. the conversations you’ll have will pull you out of your comfort zone and deepen your relationships all at the same time! i am so grateful for my bliss babes! 💕#atribecalledbliss

Someone else doesn't get to tell you who you can be.

This morning, we both threw our hair up in buns and ventured out to the farmer’s market for the first time. they had lawn games, water fun and of course this girl had to get a smoothie (#smoothiequeen 👸🏼). she had so much fun that she fell asleep on the way home and i pulled a #basicmom move and booked it straight to the @chickfila drive-thru. anyone else start the day with super good intentions of eating healthy and then end up blowing it cause #momlife? i mean, anything to keep a sleeping baby asleep right? 🙌

Imagine this: a life of fulfillment, where you’re experiencing growth in your life, career, ministry, and your walk with god. we all desire growth. we want to move forward, but growth can not be our focus. things we hear often are, “i just want to grow as a person.” “i need a church where i can grow.” “are you growing spiritually?” but this kind of thinking leads to a very selfish version of christianity. it leaves us feeling empty and wondering what we’re missing. god never called us to live that kind of life; his plan for our lives has never been about selfishness and never involved emptiness in any form or fashion. the life god longs for us to live is all about love. jesus said the two greatest things are loving god and loving people. the funny thing is that loving god and loving people happen to be what cause us to grow. but growth isn’t really the point— love is. the moment we stop living to grow and start living to love, that is when god is able to break down barriers in our lives and the lives of others. if we want to see growth, if we want to see revival, if we want to see broken hearts healed and chains of addiction, depression, anxiety, and suicide broken, we have to stop focusing on our own personal growth and start focusing on loving people with the same risk-taking, foundation shaking, chain breaking love that god loves us with.

A wee bit of sugar + a whole lot of spice. •may we face the camera a little more. not worry about the angle we’re showing or the smile lines around our face. no need to dress up in the perfect outfit or search for the best pic to share. because we are all beautiful and all have a story to tell. may we stop competing, stop comparing, stop over analyzing, and start living more for ourselves instead of for others. may we never let fear drive us but let truth drive us. may i listen to my own advice and everything i write + be the best example to my babies. •anyone else feeling like they want to live life more like this? just me?😆👌🏻 •enjoying a few days back in socal and as much as i love it here, i’m already missing home.💕 .

When i started working with cheri and gary, they had the goal of downsizing into a condo. they had raised their family and planted deep roots in roseville so wanted to stay in the area. once we found the right condo with a perfect kitchen, that set things in motion to list their family home for sale. everything was going smoothly until we hit some unexpected setbacks in the process. i always say “moving is tough!” and this was an especially tough journey, but there always is light at the end of the tunnel and we celebrated with a glass of wine on the porch and were able to laugh and relax after it all! and ariella even got her turn to hold the sold sign :)

It warmed my heart to hear that the kids at the boys school say that they boys have super powers, because they see and hear things that the rest of the kids don’t! how sweet! they truly are amazing boys!! ❤️❤️#autism #auntytime #bekind #joyinthejourney #beopen #belove
