I'm a redeemed child of God and the momma to four vivacious daughters. I'm passionate about finding hidden blessings in the trials of life, living it out in an honest and open way, while encouraging those around me to believe in better.


you’re awake. you’re awesome. live like it.

Have you heard of Kid President? He’s a cute little guy filled with fun tidbits of wisdom and encouragement. His videos make me smile, they make me think, and they fill me with encouragement.

I came across this one recently and shared it with my nephew. He’s had some not-so-great days lately and is feeling discouraged. When I saw this video, I immediately thought of him … cuz some days we get ice cream … and well … some days we don’t. But just because we don’t, doesn’t mean the life we’ve been given doesn’t have a purpose.

Go deeper with me here, I’m not talking just about ice cream! :)

Anyway. Just a simple video full of encouragement and truth to brighten your Friday.

some days you’ll get ice cream …

And some days you won’t.

some days your kite will fly high …

And some days it will get stuck in a tree.

We all mess-up sometimes. The biggest mess-up? Not forgiving each others mess-ups.

Treat everyone like it’s their birthday. Even if they don’t deserve it.

Take brain pictures.

You were made from love. For love. And to spread love.

Love is always louder. No matter what.
Even if hate has a bullhorn, love is louder.

There are plenty of reasons to dance, you just have to look for them.

We should give people high fives just for getting out of bed.

You’re awake. You’re awesome. Live like it.
