“He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart; he gently leads those that have young.”

– Isaiah 40:11

Life isn’t easy. In our Instagram filtered world, it sure seems like everyone else has it all together! But much like the haggard old woman turned enchantress tells the Beast,

I warn you, not to be deceived by appearances.

Being a mother is hard. Being a wife is hard. Being a human being… it’s dang hard!

If anyone tells you otherwise, they’re joshin’ you.
And quite possibly joshin’ themselves.

This shall be a blog filled with pretty pictures, and the raw truth of life that’s lived behind the filters. My hope is that it will encourage you in those days when, you just don’t want to “real life” today.


We love essential oils,
& sweet baby kisses.
We have victory,
But not without plenty of misses.

We try to live healthy.
We try to live clean.
But every day we consume Chocolate!
And Coffeeee!
And the occasional jelly bean!

Some days we lose track,
Try to do everything on our own.
But then we draw back to Jesus.
Our Light,
Our Joy,
Our Cornerstone.
