Outward Appearance

Verse:“But the Lord said to Samuel, ‘Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees; man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.’” I’ve been doing a devotional by Lysa Tyrkeurst called “Embraced”…

It’s The Same Thing

Happy 2021!!! I’m so excited to be posting the first recipe of 2021. Sesame Chicken Cauliflower Fried Rice… Shew!! What a name!!! I’m doing a new “diet” that basically allows me unlimited servings of veggies, so coming up with low carb swaps that take silly carbs, like rice, out and changes it with veggies is…

2021: The Year of the Bounce Back

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!! I know it’s ridiculous, but the New Year always brings me so much hope. This year was no different, I just ignored the news all day. While I don’t think 2021 will be much different than 2020 in terms of COVID-19 or the unrest that we feel, I do believe that I…

What Diet?!?

After taking last week off (we were having some renovations done in the house and I didn’t have a kitchen) I was SUPER excited to bring a Keto Chocolate Chip Cookie to you!!! I know that the Keto diet is usually met with apprehension and judgement from those who haven’t tried it, and that’s ok!…

Thanksgiving Staple

Happy Thanksgiving my beautiful and amazing friends!! I hope that you’re all enjoying your time (socially distant, of course) with people you love. I’m blessed that I live with basically my whole family, so we get to celebrate together. For as long as I can remember, which isn’t long, I’ve always wanted to try my…

Thankful and Grateful

Family is the most important part of my life. They have supported me and been there when it felt like no one else was. God has blessed me with such an amazing family I can’t begin to put into words how blessed I am. Incredibly grateful for the friends that have stuck with me since…

You Are What You Eat

I know, I know… I’m on a cheesy title roll this week. You still love me, right? Seeing as I haven’t done a Self Care Sunday post in awhile I thought I’d do one that speaks directly to me. So if you’ll excuse me, I have a very important conversation I need to have with…

Rolling in the Cream

Ok, so ignore how cheesy my title is. I wanted to first apologize for not posting anything last week. It’s been a rough couple of weeks and it caught up with me last week. I took some time to focus on my self care and mental health. I’m still struggling, but its not as bad…

God Says: Momma Affirmation 10

Affirmation I am the recipient of an unfathomable reward. “Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him.”~Psalm 127:3 We’re at the end of our Momma Affirmation series. It’s bittersweet, but there’s so many more things we can learn as mommas and I’m hoping to dive into all of them!! I also…

Pumpkin and Cranberry: Match Made in Heaven

This recipe was a request from my mother, and I was all about it. I love a good pumpkin bread, and this one is just perfect!! The cranberry adds a tang that pairs amazingly with the smooth and spiciness of the pumpkin. Here’s what you need: 1 stick of unsalted butter, plus more for the…
