I read their mean comments yesterday 😭and I’d be lying if I said it didn’t make me questions my worth.
The mean comments didn’t come from this amazing community on Instagram. I’ve been posting almost everyday for over 2 years on this app, and I’ve only gotten a handful of hateful comments. You instead share the most beautiful stories, love, ❤️gratitude and encouragement. After reflection, the comments I read yesterday me made me even more grateful for each of you. “Do not l
She looked us over and with a disappointed and surprised tone of voice & said, “you guys are the ‘models’ for this couple shoot?! I was sure you were just photographers.” And then a little later when we interacted with another women (much skinner than myself), she said, “see, that girl is definitely a model.” Both Caleb and I admitted to each other we felt the sting of her words.
It’s not the first time this insecurity has come up. Putting yourself out there online or in
Have you ever had to be carried? I like to think of myself as a strong, independent, girl boss and it’s a humbling experience to feel the need to be carried. Like the time I took a bad fall by a waterfall and knocked off some of my toenails and twisted my ankle and Caleb carried me to the car. But emotionally being carried can be even more humbling.
Do you know the poem ‘footprints in the sand’? I’ve been thinking about that poem a lot lately. The last couple weeks have
He looked at me funny after I got on the scale. I knew the numbers showing were considerably more than 3 years ago when I had visited the doctors office, he was the same nurse that saw me then and had my records in his hands. I consciously filled my mind with the truth I’ve been practicing for years to take out the old thoughts that used to so quickly fill my mind. Replacing toxic thoughts “you’re body isn’t good enough” “you’re only worthy if you’re under X amount of pounds
Have you ever looking the mirror and been disgusted with whats in the reflection?
Caleb here today, I can feel that way too. There have been so many times where I have looked in the mirror and have been ashamed with what I look like. This is a slippery slope and can cause an argument or frustration between the two of us. I absolutely hate the feeling of not being good enough. Thankfully, I have two people constantly reminding me of my worth, and its still hard at times! In t
I was trying to make a flatlay, and 🍯🐻 wanted to be in it too. Then she messed up the flowers and ran around with one of the yellow ball shaped ones in her mouth. 😂
There are so many sad and frustrating things in this life that seem like such a waste. Do you agree?
Many of you resonated with my last blog post about stealing my smile with frustration of what a waste of time, money, energy and physical and emotional pain it all was. I think waste frustrates us a
It’s the weekend! We are so excited to be done with the week and that we get to spend this three day weekend together.
Looking back at our 2017, we both felt a theme of having dreams, committing them to God, getting scared/nervous that they wouldn’t come true, and then seeing Him come through in His timing.
Owning your own business can be hard in this way. You have these aspirations that drive you, that are God given, and part of your makeup that you try to

Want someone to change? Change the way you see them.
When I was a drug and alcohol rehab counselor for a mental health agency we would often say this phrase “God, Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.” What a powerful statement. Eventually I've learned that the only person I can make change is myself, and even that is difficult with habits etc. We can influence others, love o
I hate feeling rejected. I'm sure I'm not alone in this. Recently I was rejected and it didn't feel great to say the least. I woke up so sad the morning after the rejection and wanted to harden my heart. I thought of all the reasons why I should be angry and bitter. But then I felt like God said (not audibly but in my heart) "I've taken your rejection." It was so powerful and totally changed my perspective. It was no longer about the hurt I was feeling but the fact that Jesus
