Girl, I get it...

Some days you wake up and are ready to conquer the world.
And then there are the days you feel like you’ve been conquered before you even get out of bed.

Some days everything just falls into place.
And then there are the days everything just falls apart.

You wake up each day with the determination to get it all “figured out” but then drag yourself to bed at night feeling like, no matter what you did accomplish, you still failed at something somewhere.

Does never being able to "get it right" drive you crazy?!

Got a lot done at work, but missed out on your kid’s school program.

Spent quality time with the kids, but the house is a wreck and you have on energy to clean it.

Helped your friend sort out her family conflict, but got into a fight with your own husband.

I've been there too! But it doesn't have to be that way...

You can find joy in the chaos by connecting with God each day.

Imagine NOT focusing on your never-ending ToDo List or checking off all the boxes that make you a “good” wife, mother, and Christian woman 
but instead on a Savior whose strength is shown your YOUR weakness. 
Your anxieties about the future have melted away because 
you know God has you right where you are meant to be 
and you can finally stop trying to control your cir
cumstances and find JOY in them instead.

There was a time I felt overwhelmed and underappreciated. My schedule was packed and my To-Do list never got any shorter. My life was stressful and my closest relationships were suffering because of it. I didn’t want it to be that way. I wanted it to be joyful! It wasn’t until I realized that any day lived for God’s glory will have you finding purpose and fulfillment right where you are. 

Today, I have genuine joy in my heart. And, while far from perfect, I am secure in my role as a woman of God. Yes, somedays, daily living can still wear me out!
But I am no longer “just surviving” because I understand that God put me exactly where I am meant to be.

I know who God designed me to be and I am thankful for the life He has given me.

Develop your relationship with God in just 5 minutes a day!

Spending time with God is the most important part of your day, but like any new habit, 
it can be hard to establish.

You are busy and exhausted. Your brain never stops thinking about all the things that need to get done which makes concentrating on the Bible difficult. And you are not even sure how what you are reading actually helps you get through daily struggles.

Love your site and it’s exactly what I need in life right now. Before kids I had such a great relationship with God. Now with three little ones I have zero time. When do I do it? How do I do it with the time I do have? And what’s enough to keep that relationship going? I wish I could do more. Thanks for your site!

Developing your personal relationship with God is important because...

You can't pour out of an empty cup.

Taking time to be FILLED by the Holy Spirit is essential if you want to be able to interact with others with the right heart and attitude.

God is more concerned about changing YOU than your circumstances.

It is tempting to want to jump into "fixing" our marriage & kids, our environment or our circumstances, but that is rarely how God works!

God says so!

The most important commandment is this, to love the Lord your God with all your heart, with your soul and with all your mind.

Are you struggling to understand how to even start a relationship with God?

I would love to hear from you!
