If you could...

Thank God for one thing, what would it be?

I would definitely thank him for MY life. If he didn't give me my life, I would not have all the blessings that I have been blessed with today. Life is amazing and even with its ups and downs, I wouldn't want it any other way!

Do you journal?

I actually do journal. I use to keep journals for myself, but now that I am older my journal moments have changed. I keep a journal and write it when I go to church or am doing a bible study with different books. It is a great thing to read back on what I wrote in different stages of my life!

The most important journal to me that I keep is one for my daughter. I started it when I found out I was pregnant with her and wrote during my pregnancy and have written in it since then. I love writing her funny comments or her sweet comments in there. I write her accomplishments in there as well as just life in general. One day she will read it and laugh, smile, cry and hopefully she will cherish it!

Faith is believing in something when common sense tells you not to. ~ Miracle on 34th Street

Quote of the Day

Faith is taking the first step even when you can't see the whole staircase.

Do looks matter?

You know this question is a tough one.

Because looks do not matter, but is that how I have felt growing up and now, no. I believe that we live in a very harsh world where everyone is very critical if you aren't a certain weight and if you aren't a certain size.

I have grown to love myself for who I am and the way God has made me. I have things I dislike about myself, but that is something I am working on improving. I am not going to improve it for anyone else, it is for me alone! I don't care anymore what people think about me. I did all throughout my childhood and teen years and even into my adult years.... it is the hardest thing to overcome judging yourself for not being this way or that way.

I think when I had my daughter I realized that if I kept doing that to myself she would pick up those habits as well and I didn't want to raise her thinking anything other than the fact that she is beautiful and a wonderful girl!

Be who you are and love yourself!

This gem was taken in 2008 when we came home to Louisiana when my little one was 4 months old. She is sitting in the pool with her Uncle Larry. He is laying on a pool float and she was just so content. It was awesome!

Quote of the Day

Faith in God includes faith in His timing.

Known for?

I would like to be known for my desire to always want to help people. I love helping others and doing what I can to help those in need. I think I have found my calling with being a ministry coach to my MOPS groups and helping my ladies when they need me and when they don't need me praying for them to be the best they can be.

That is who I want to be known for. I want to be known for my thoughtful nature and my love of being a wonderful wife and mother to my family!

Best thing this past weekend?

This past weekend we rang in the new year. Goodbye 2015 and hello 2016. 2015 had some tough times, but had some really great times as well. I am really looking forward to 2016 and all that life has to bring... God is great and I can't wait to see how He works in our life this year for our little family!

Our faith CAN move mountains...

Something you would never guess about me...

There are a few things here...

~ I took a year of Latin in high school and it was my favorite class ever. I can still say Twinkle Twinkle Little Star in Latin. I don't do it often, but I can :)

~ I can play the piano if I have a book that will show me the keys. I have lost all my knowledge of playing without looking at an easy book, but if I played all the time I would get it back! I just would have to teach myself again. I love playing the piano and I can sit all day and listen to people play the piano.

What is the one thing that makes you laugh the hardest?

The one thing that makes me laugh the most is my daughter. She is hilarious and I love listening to her talk and the things that go through her mind. Sometimes I laugh out loud and other times I do it quietly inside so she doesn't get embarrassed!
