i’m learning to let go

love more

share more

make myself more available

speak up

let my heart be broken for others



find someone to encourage

remind them of God’s plan for their life

share words of affirmation

call my kids by a love breathed nickname

try to hold my breath before i yell

be more

do more

enjoy the small things in life

speak words of affirmation into the life of my family and friends

celebrate my trials, my stresses, my inconveniences


laugh till i cry

use hashtags in my text messages

bless someone else

find ways to be a better wife + mom

be real and be true to who i am and stand strong in the God who created me

for me makes no mistakes.

and speaking of sharing, giving and celebrating…
