Gahhhhhh. My ‪#‎mcm‬ EVERY DAY. I seriously never imagined life could be THIS good. I grew up with the BEST Christian role models, who showed us exactly what a marriage was supposed to be like… But I had a lot of BAD relationships, and a failed marriage- with young children- before Luke. No one wants to talk about these things… Total FAILURES… But it’s LIFE, and it makes me so grateful for today. Before Luke and I started dating, I was ready to just be alone… And be a mother to my girls. And… I’m certain he was not ready to get married or have an INSTANT family. Thankfully, God had a better plan than either of us did. Luke is our rock, and the most incredible hubby/father. Our marriage gets stronger and stronger every day, and he makes me a better person. I’ve been feeling a lot of guilt lately as a mother. I work a full time job, and I run a full time coaching business (part-time)- that officially makes more money than my REAL job! To say I am stretched thin, is an understatement. Luke takes on parenting duties, plays with the kids, and does bath time, so I can work on my business AFTER work. He is the greatest support system, but he is also the reasoning behind most decisions we make. Last night, Luke told me he had been thinking about some things we needed to do differently as parents, and I agree with him 100%. Things that had been on my mind and in my heart, he verbalized and put into action. This man is an answered prayer and better than anything I ever imagine. I am thankful for his leadership and the example that he sets for our children every single day. Goodness… I am GRATEFUL. 

Faith Bigger Than FEAR

FAITH bigger than fear3I heard something Sunday morning in church that I have thought about multiple times, every day since. If you are allowing FEAR to consume your life, you are NOT trusting God, but you are worshipping those fears. Have you ever felt a calling SO strong, but your FEAR kept you from going after it?! Of course you have. We all have. Fear is healthy, but letting it control your life, or hold you back from your dreams, is NOT. Three years ago, I believed deep down that coaching could change my family’s life, but I let the fear of failure, judgement, and the unknown hold me back. We are SOOOO programmed to do what society deems NORMAL, that we miss out on SO many opportunities to go where we are CALLED. WHY would anyone want to be NORMAL when life can be INCREDIBLE? God gives us the most amazing callings, yet we walk away because we don’t feel capable. Guess what?! God doesn’t call the QUALIFIED, he qualifies the CALLED. So, those FEARS… Let them go! That stirring in your heart, that you were made for MORE… Go after it!!! Let your FAITH be bigger than your fear.
