Kind words are like honey—sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.
Proverbs 16:24
--
Sweet to the Soul 🍯
--
We all know that words can have such a huge impact on our mindset and how we're feeling, so we can understand how important it is to encourage and build others up, not just when they're going through hard times, but just out of sheer love and appreciation for that person!
--
So now we got that part down ✔️ some of us need to understand that this includes saying kind words to yourself!! It's just as important to speak kind words to yourself as it is to other people. Some of us are great encouragers - until it comes to ourselves. We can be so hard on ourselves, constantly going over all the things we're not doing right or all the things we haven't managed to achieve, all our regrets, all our shortcomings and it's got to stop! ⛔️
--
We need to think of ourselves and others as God thinks of us; worthy, loved and wonderfully made - once we acknowledge this, we are sure to have a kind word or four say! #Tagafriend and share a sweet word✨

But when you give a feast, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you. For you will be repaid at the resurrection of the just. - Luke 14:13-14

✨H A R D  T H I N G S✨ We have arrived at ‘humpday’, halfway through a week that I have heard many say has already been hard but it’s alright. Why ? Because we must go through the hard things. We must do the difficult, the unpleasant for in their conquest, we find courage. We discover parts of ourselves we didn’t know. 
We may be scared but we are being strengthened. Our roots deepen, our branches extend. We become fully fledged as we flourish. We are fully formed. We finally resemble ourselves. 
Stand strong. There’s growth in the struggle. #humpday #staystrong #keepgoing #growthmindset #courage #TheHalfPackedSuitcase

Peace is priceless. Peace within yourself is even better. It's to wake up without wanting to battle with yourself, to practise being patient with your life and circumstances and deciding not to rush around forcing things into place - especially those out of our control.

Is it possible to be on fire at the same time? I plan to be! Here's to achieving our goals, a brave and determined soul, stepping out in faith, meaningful and laughter-ful relationships and a 'cant stop, won't stop' attitude.

Hello! I'm Hannah from @creativebea and I'll be taking over Cheerfully Given's Instagram today. 
I'm probably best know for selling Bible journaling supplies on here but today I'm going to show you some of the other things I do too (and possibly a little Bible journaling demo later on!).

Christmas is coming (and Thanksgiving too for our friends in the States) so taking a closer look at this verse today was a no brainer!

When Paul wrote this letter to the Thessalonians he didn't just advise giving thanks in the good times. He knew thankfulness is an 'all in' attitude that counts for the grim times too.

Like a seed in the snow, I've been buried to grow. 🌱 
That person is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers.  Psalm 1:3 ✨

A word of encouragement to people like me who are being kept busy by the daily grind. I decided to see what happens to my problem when I pray about the challenge my Business was facing for 2 minutes on the hour. I was pleasantly surprised 😃 at the ideas 💡 and options that came flooding in . The lesson for me was  never to be so engrossed with my #business challenges that I forget to ask #God for guidance. Whatever the #challenge you are facing, remember Help is a prayer button award, pray, #pray and pray till it’s sorted.

I am here, waiting for you to give your burdens to Me.

You have spent your life choosing things—a way of looking at the world that has made you carry burdens. You were never meant to carry those burdens, my child. I have been here, waiting for you to give them to me.

Lately this quote has been coming up in my life. 
Sometimes life is so hard. Sometimes it is mundane. Sometimes it seems impossible to fight the world of darkness. But we were called to fight that dark with light. His light. His blinding light. It streams in gently until it becomes a surging power of love, compassion and kindness. We weren't called to contain it. We were called to let it seep into every area of our life. 
As a mom, raising kids is hard. We have this tendency to shield them from the world but by keeping them from the world we are containing their light. I want them to see that darkness so they know they have an incredible job to do but they are equipped with the greatest love man has ever known. So mommas, hug those babies tight but teach them to be world changers. Raise up your army of love. 
When I draw my last breath, I want to know I fought a good fight and that I'm leaving faithful fighters behind. ❤

I was not sure what words to put down, but eventually two simple words repetitively flowed out of my hand. 
Lately it has been difficult to remember that Jesus can fill my aching heart, but I want to shift my focus from lack to overflow of the deep and profound truth that Jesus died, saved, and is coming back for us. 
Thank you Dad, for the greatest love story that we never deserved. I’m sorry for forgetting, but that’s okay too. Please continue to faithfully remind me. Thank you. Amen.

If you're like many people this week and thinking on things on which to be thankful, consider this: He chose you first. Before you knew Him, before you were even born, He chose you. He made you His own. He loved you. Now you can call yourself chosen, known, and loved. If nothing else happens in your life, you can count on that, and that's something for which to be thankful. #OurWordsHavePower

Genesis 1:28, "Be fruitful (productive), multiply, replenish the earth..." Everything we build or desire to build including businesses derives from this one scripture.  It is the pull of this spiritual principle that makes a man/woman desire to build something of significance.  And because this is a spiritual mandate,  wise sons seek to build based on divine principles. 
In Genesis 11, the children of Israel responded to this pull and they decided to build a tower that reached up to the heavens. This idea isn't bad at all, because God Himself promised Abraham to make him famous and distinguished.  But the builders of the tower of Babel had an ulterior motif. They didn't set out to build in accordance to divine mandate and instructions alone. They wanted to make a name for themselves rather than allow God make the right name for them, and of course they didn't want to be scattered around the earth.  God came down and decided to scatter them and confound their language.

God isn't afraid of your success, He wants to give you good success and He wants you to succeed on His terms, because that is how He gets glory from your life.

So as you work on and in your business today, remember,  there is a way to build. If you stick with the pattern, you will be famous and you will be distinguished. .

...”You see, grace isn’t always wrapped up in glossy polka-dotted paper. In fact most times grace tastes bitter and rotten. It can feel like guilt, shame and depression. It can show up uninvited at your doorstep, beckoning itself in. But that’s this very beautiful, hard grace. It’s the one we desperately need but aren’t necessarily wanting. Because grace is truth, truth seen and touched. And truth spoken and swallowed sets us free, but it also sometimes hurts •

I must admit my thighs have gotten larger, and my bank account smaller. It’s this unconscious spending and eating. This grip for control and comfort with a swipe and a bite. I often don’t even realize I’m doing it. I wander aisles and buy simple things like face wash and nail polish. But I don’t really need it, it just feels good to buy something, something new, something that might pick me up. And then there’s that late night snacking, that second and third dinner I’m not really hungry for. But I’m hungry for comfort and it seems to disguise itself into my belly...” New blog post, “hard grace”, link in profile.

Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls; all your breakers and your billows have swept over me. The Lord will send his faithful love by day; his song will be with me in the night - a prayer to the God of my life {Psalms 42:7-8}

Only 2️⃣ days until Thanksgiving! Anyone else a little excited?! 🙋🏼🙋🏼🙋🏽
As we head over the river and through the woods, consider the paths you've travelled this year. Maybe you've hit some bumps or roadblocks, been delayed and broken down. But where has your help come from? Read about the pilgrim song found in Psalm that inspires us to plot the course with full confidence in His guidance on the winding roads ahead. It's #ontheblog now! #linkinbio #thewelltoday

Until we understand that it’s ALL grace, we will continually point to happy couples and 50-year love stories and call them the lucky ones.

But friends, we are alive, we are reconciled, and we are single by the grace of God.

We, too, are the lucky ones.

#repost from @shereadstruth 
Today was such a great lesson and reading. Today we read about the workers in the Vineyard(Matthew 20:1-16). How those who started working in the Vineyard first were paid last and the same amount as those who came last  who worked way less then the workers who were first. The workers who were first became jealous and didn't see why they got the same pay for working for so little time. 
The message is, those who come to Him at whatever time in life are no different. They still came to Jesus and were saved!  Also, to appreciate your own blessings and not to compare them to others. Which is the part I find myself doing a lot. Comparing, it's something I work on and I feel I am doing better because I have so many blessings! #shereadstruth #senddoves #saved #faith #love #hope #blessed #godisgood #biblejournaling

I really like the way this turned out!  Trinity crucifix bracelet depicting the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit and accented by vintage cloisonne beads.  There are 10 beads so you could use it as a rosary bracelet too.  Available now in my etsy shop!

Heyy girls! So some of you have probably wondered where I’ve been/what’s happening with SAS 🤷🏼‍♀️... and I plan to do a live video on it soon 😏 but.... here’s a little snapshot:
- I’ve spent 9 months rediscovering who I am. Who I AM apart from what I DO. It’s mind-blowing 🤯
- It’s been a long season of rest, stillness and enjoying the simple life.
- Theres been a lot of dying to self. Letting go of striving, perfectionism, comparison and more. #LetItGo ❄️
- God has been speaking SO much in the last couple of months about many things... things like what does purpose actually mean and learning how to ‘flourish’ is not just for the girly-girls 😜
- Nothing is wasted. Oh man, this was the big thing.
- New inspiration and ideas for SAS! Which I can’t wait to reveal soon. 😄

Yes friends, YES! 🙌

Let's prepare our hearts ❤️ now for this upcoming season. Let's purpose now that we'll truly rest in HIM! In his finished work because of the cross and because of the manger.

There's no question that the next month will be full of shopping trips, and to-do lists, parties and presents, which are all good things. But I want my heart set on Him in the midst of a busy season...the fountain from which true rest comes.

Just a short excerpt from my new book. Because I don’t know about you but I feel the need for true Peace this season. ///Don’t you want to give the gift of a conversation with the Maker of stars to a loved one?

Look who I met today!! Remy Jacob, he is perfect 💙  My heart is bursting, I just love him 💫 #auntieblessings #hesperfect #remyjacob
Not really in the mood of doing my house chores and motherhood duties #cantadulttoday 😅
The little one takes short(er) nap time everyday, the clingy tears plus the super hot weather, plus handling a 6yo attitude challenges (I try to speak positive and not referring it as attitude “problems” 🙏🏻), plus yes, house chores (cooking, vacuuming, mopping, laundry - same old boring motherhood stuffs 😂).
.
Then THIS verse came out 👆🏻
I am guilty of complaining.
I have sinned with complaining (yes, do you know that complaining is a sin?) just like the Israelites in the desert🌵
.
“Do it enthusiastically” - I don’t think this verse suggests us to fake our enthusiasms, to pretend to be (too) cheery when actually we are really not.
But the “secret” comes in the latter words - “as something done FOR the LORD”.
This part we really don’t pretend. Whatever we do, they ARE for the Lord! And the JOY comes from this doing! 
1 Cor 10:31
“So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God”.
.
So yes, I admit that I have sinned. 
And I want to repent #dailyrepentance
I speak to my soul, rise up and give thanks to the Lord, because HE is good, and HE is worthy to be praised, He is worthy to receive our best!
Now let’s tackle the rest of the day #byHisgrace 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻

Nazaria has literally changed my life. She was worth suffering for as long as I did and I'd do it all over again just to see her beautiful face and smile on a daily! 😍😍

Crazy to think we're getting so close!..just inching in onto the end of another year. 😮😮😮 And it's had me reflecting on 2017- which has turned out to be the healthiest year of my life!

I'm honestly AMAZED I can even say this because i've never had a more challenging yet consistent relationship with my health & fitness before. Never!

But honestly. 
It's not what it seems. 
You may see a "fitness lover."
But it's an entire fitness team & community behind me that's been my driving force.

THEIR commitment, encouragement, examples, and friendship! have helped me jump back on the wagon every time i've fallen off!

2017 has been an amazing year of growth for me not because I'm motivated. 
But because I'm 👉🏼plugged in👈. Today I'm thankful for my TRIBE!!💛 #NovemberGratitudeChallenge

#12daysofbookstagram My stack of Christian essays and thought. Some of these are explicitly religious (Anne Lamott), while some are a little more tangential (Marilynne Robinson). Anne Lamott is one of my favorite writers to read on audio, but I loved her book on grace so much I bought a physical copy. .
.
.
I've also been working my way through The Radical King as a kind of social justice devotional. So many of his famous speeches were originally preached as sermons, which adds an extra depth to them to me. .

Many times we wait until we think we're ready to pursue our dreams, but if we keep waiting until we’re ready, we will never feel ready. The key is to follow what the Holy Spirit is leading you to do. .
God put those dreams in your heart for a purpose and His grace is enough to get you where you need to be.

2 Corinthians 12:9 says, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness..” .
I would never have started Living Revelations if I had first looked back to see if I had the “credentials” to be a writer. I took the step of faith trusting that if God called me to writing, he would equip me for my calling. As I look back at my work with Living Revelations, I can see growth in my writing and many lives continuously being touched. This could only have happened because I didn’t limit myself to what I knew I could do.

Despite my insecurities, I trusted that God was enough.

God is enough to get you where you need to be. Know that He is greater than whatever insecurities you may be facing today. God's power is made perfect in your weaknesses. Don’t limit your potential for God’s kingdom. New blog “Don’t Limit Your Potential” bit.ly/2B8Qna3 (Link in bio!)

“You shall drink from the brook, and I have commanded the ravens to feed you there.” So he went and did according to the word of the Lord. He went and lived by the brook Cherith that is east of the Jordan. And the ravens brought him bread and meat in the morning, and bread and meat in the evening, and he drank from the brook.” 1 Kings 17:4-6
-
Now Elijah the Tishbite, of Tishbe in Gilead, had everything he needed to complete the mission God called him to but I think somewhere in the back of his mind he might have been thinking, “Ravens are going to feed me Meat & Bread?  I mean I am keeping it from raining and all you send are ravens?” But over that time in hiding - His needs were met.
-
I wonder how many miracles of God I miss because instead of “doing according to the will of the Lord,” I am looking for something a bit more flashy.  There are two reasons for this I believe:
1. The most unlikely place / or calling God sends us to is “right here and now” and not some “when I get xyz.” We don’t like the way his provision is delivered so we reject it.
2. I have everything I need to do what God has called me to do. We often want to “add to” what God has called us to, rethink it, get 8 different opinions and make lists of things we must do before we act when we have everything inside us via Holy Spirit and the calling He has placed on our life. It is “Jesus + X,” it’s simply “Jesus + nothing” = all I need.
-
What calling are you waiting for yet another confirmation, another sign etc. when He’s been posting billboards in your life.  Let’s take Him at His Word and be the women He has called us to be!

The perfect balance in protecting the vulnerable human ego is between protecting from the corrupting influence of praise or the corrosive effects of shame. My parents always taught me this !! But I had to learn the hard way on my own 🤦🏼‍♀️ Humility isn't in human nature but we are blessed because we all have a little supernatural in us so we can learn to overcome pride. I'm so thankful that my God has been merciful to me! 🙏🏼💞 #shereadstruth

I don't like my smile. I don't like my teeth. I don't like my lack of make up talent. I don't like my laugh. I don't like my hair. I don't like my body. 
God loves my laugh. God loves my smile. God loves my singing. God loves my tears. God loves what He created in me. 
God
loves
me. 
So I need to love myself as well. (Spoiler alert: He also loves you like crazy)

I took the long way home because I had the time. I drove on a road I didn’t know existed until today and walked through a pile of leaves without regard to anything else. I felt calm for the first time in weeks.
—
I’m the first to admit I’m not gracefully patient and I’m too hard on myself.
—
So today, after 3 hours in a radiology lab and another 45 minutes of blood work, I walked through a pile of leaves and simply thanked God for being with me. For calming my nerves and holding me together when I felt like breaking.
—
He’s there whenever we need him; forever by our side. He is strong when we are weak and is always ready to carry us when we can no longer walk. That’s pretty damn special.

#TuesdaystoCreate: a weekly Bible journaling prompt
. 
Oh my goodness, advent season is here! I love seeing all of your Christmas-themed Bible journaling entries! It is so much fun!
. 
So, this week, let’s start celebrating the birth of Jesus with a prompt from Luke 2 (it is never the wrong time celebrate Jesus’ birthday!) . 
When you were a kid, did you have some super fancy ornaments for your Christmas tree, the type that glittered like the stars? I know I did. It was so special for me to put them on the tree, I looked forward to it every year. So, why don’t we create a fancy ornament near Luke 2 that glitters like the star that shone over Bethlehem when Jesus was born?
. 
Here’s what I did, I found an intricate ornament color page on google, printed it, cut it in half, and then traced it into my Bible with a gold pen!
. 
If you decide to do this and share it on Instagram, please remember to tag #TuesdaystoCreate because I LOVE to see what you beauties create!

Um, hey! Guess who's been away from the computer and out exercising every extroverted bone in her body?? This girl! 🙋🙋And even though, it was a crazy week with three holiday markets and craft shows squeezed into one week, I'm so glad I did it. More and more people know about Mercy Creates and have artwork that encourages, edifies, and exhorts hanging in their offices, homes, and in their friend's homes and offices! I heard OVER AND OVER how people were excited to send and give these pieces to their friends and family - to encourage them, uplift them, and let them know that someone cares. I told everyone that stopped by that I enjoy what I do, and it's the truth. I enjoy encouraging (it's one of my top Strengths Finder strengths)! Mercy Creates is my outlet to visually encourage YOU, and I'm beyond grateful that I have that opportunity to do that. I'm so thankful. So so thankful.

Giving gifts is one of my favorite things to do. Sitting before women, explaining the Bible, and watching someone's eyes come to life at the realization that God loves them is one of the best gifts we can give. Are you celebrating #GivingTuesday this year? Consider giving to Gospel Joy so that more women can know God's truth through bible study. .

Farewell vacation! You have been much needed for this weary soul. My heart is so full from the past 2 weeks! It was a whirlwind! Incredibly thankful for the many adventures around the world with the people I love. 💗
I'll slowly be sharing more snapshots of my adventures. Here's another from Mexico City before we ate at @rest_quintonil (hope you saw the stories! If you missed it, I'll be sharing some snaps of the deliciousness) 😋
PS. Something else that happened during vacation was the release of @sleepingatlast's Enneagram song Two! It's always such fun to record with him, but I learned a lot about myself through the recording of this song! Any Enneagram lovers out there? Check out the song anywhere you can get music! I promise a beautiful listen 💕

I want my heart for the Lord to be like a balloon filled with helium. Ever rising and ascending up to him. To be constantly resisting against the forces that try to push me down and discourage me. I want my heart to always feel weightless and free instead of heavy with the burdens of this world. The more filled I am with God, the more drawn to Him I will be, and the higher I will fly 🎈Let’s get filled up and fly shall we!?

I must admit...I have a displaced hope.
--
I often put my hope in people or my circumstances.  I hope that things will get better or that something in my life will satisfy my deepest desires.
--
None of those things will satisfy.  My hope can only be in Jesus.  He is the only one who will never let me down or abandon me.  He will always satisfy and fill the void that nothing else can fill.
--
My only hope is in you, Lord!

Day 2 of Week of Thankfulness. I’m thankful for walks. I’m thankful for the
time spent in creation, the time spent with family and friends, and the
time spent with God. It’s a time to deepen relationship and get just a bit
healthier along the way. Most of all, I love that our relationship with God
as Christ-followers is described as a walk. I love that image—such a
perfect reminder from the Greatest Writer. 
Genesis 5:24; Colossians 2:6; Ephesians 5

the interesting thing is, i NEVER ever imagined being in front of a camera. & public speaking was something i hated, just the thought of having eyes glued to me gave me anxiety. i would purposely miss class (even in Bible College😂😂) whenever i had to do a presentation. i was willing to risk failing for the sake of staying in my own comfort.
🌻🌻
i was just a background type of person. didn’t mind it & still don’t. OHHHH, BUT GOD!! *in my church mother voice!* He most def. has a sense of humor. & when it comes to HIS purposes & HIS plans for our lives He is not interested in keeping us comfortable. He is more invested in seeing us be ALL that He created us to be.
🌻🌻
& to truly be that, means to disrespect your comfort zone. being willing to trust that whatever God has called you to do, to go, & to become—that He is with you! the same God that was with moses when he went to pharaoh. the same God that was with joshua when it was time to possess the land flowing w/ milk & honey—is the SAME God that is with YOU & i.

Once upon a time my once in a lifetime wish upon a star became my dream come true. A sleeping beauty became the saving grace of my happily ever after. /// She’s my Gracie Elizabeth and I’m honored to be her mother.

10/30 Year Highlights: Swimming with turtles in Hawaii! We had been searching everywhere, and when my mom finally spotted one, I may or may not have ran into the water in my clothes in excitement! I was mesmerized as I swam up close to them and the tides pushed them into me. As I watched them feeding on some coral, one actually washed up on top of my feet and I stood paralyzed in disbelief! 😳 It was an experience that I will never forget!#gracemarked #thirtydaysofthanks #turtles #animals #hawaii #planetearth #travel #adventure #water #snorkel #getoutside #wild #instagood #inspiration #real #thehappynow #girlboss #vscocam #shereadstruth #ocean #summer #landscape #creativeentrepreneur #calledtocreate #exploretocreate #animalphotographer #bucketlist #creativeentrepreneur #visualsoflife #visualarchitects

Hiiiii! If you’re new here, I’m Kale & this is my lovely twin sister Kris! We last saw each other in April, so our hearts are filled again. 💕 Thanks for sending over questions! Enjoy 👇🏼
1. Do you have the same favorite flavors/foods? 
I eat gluten, dairy & soy free as well as low sugar so anything like that is my fave. I’m obsessed with Kale, obviously, & 🥑. I love Cholula sauce too. 🌶 Kristin: “I love chicken & anything spicy.”
2. Have y’all ever pulled the switcheroo? 
Yesssss! In kindergarten our classrooms were connected so during a break we would switch until our teachers noticed. Throughout school we definitely tried but as we found our own styles & interests it got harder to look 100% identical. 
3. Who’s older? I’m older, by 4 minutes! Fancy. 
4. Who started dating first? Are you both in relationships? 
Kristin started dating first! She’s been with her incredible man for 3.5 years! Yes, we both have men. 👫
5. Can you read each other’s minds? 👯‍♀️
Are you kidding me? Yes, we absolutely can. 100%. Haha kidding, but the next time you’re around us, ask us & we will show you. 
6. Who takes longer to get ready? ME. 
7. Can you feel it when the other twin gets hurt? 
Yes. We have superpowers. 
8. Do you guys dress the same? 
Haha! Just when we were little & still do when we want to match on purpose! 
9. Do you have the same careers? 
We have the same heart & passions but Kris is finishing up her nursing degree & I am all over the place & wouldn’t change a thing! 
10. What’s your natural hair? 
We both are brunettes naturally but Kris likes to go lighter & I like to go darker! 👧🏻👧🏼
Feel free to ask anything else below! 💋xoxo.

Can you relate? 👇🏼
.
I’m afraid. Afraid of feeling restricted and not being able to eat the things I enjoy. I’m afraid I will eat the things I enjoy and have no self-control. Afraid of the weight gain. Afraid I’ll look fat in family pictures. Afraid someone will take a photo at the wrong angle, or capture me in the background and everyone on FB will see how big I really am. I’m afraid of trying and not succeeding. Of feeling hungry and still not losing the last 5, 7 or 10lbs. I’m afraid of wasting time and money. Im afraid I’m too tired and afraid I wont have time; I won’t follow through. I’m afraid it will work, but I won’t be able to maintain. I’m afraid I’ll never be happy and confident with my body, myself. I’m afraid of what others really think about me. .
This used to be me too. I used to be consumed and obsessed by these thoughts. It’s a pretty miserable place, am I right? But friends, I’ve been on this journey for about a year and a half and can I tell you something? It absolutely does not have to be this way. You can be set free from these fears. You can learn to love the woman God created you to be. You can conquer the scale. You can learn to become passionate about your health and let go of your past. You can go to Thanksgiving and not worry about the extra fluff, the bad angle or give two 💩💩 about what anyone on FB thinks. How do I know? Because I’ve done it. I do it. Daily. Everyday is not easy and ZERO days are perfect. I still eat my emotions, use the one chin up angle...{you know, don’t lie} and have days like today where I skip my workout cause I just made a poor choice. But the difference is that it no longer consumes me. The difference is one mistake doesn’t mean I start over. It means I keep going. The difference is tools, support and a whole lot of Jesus. .
If you can relate to this 👆🏼 can you give me some 🙌🏼Amen🙌🏼 hands below? And if you are in this place now and would like to chat, I would love nothing more than to do just that over a virtual coffee date. All you have to do is click the link in my bio and fill out the form for a FREE consultation. It’s time, sweet friend. Time to take captive your beautiful life. 💋
