Instagram For the Soul & Five Accounts to Follow


Hello dear ones! Instagram is by far my favorite social media site to lose track of time on & truly to be inspired. I love getting to see into the lives of other people, especially the ones vacationing in far way places like Le Sirenuse & Atrani, Italy (places I'd never even heard of before!). It's fun to see into the homes of creative souls & to find small shops that work passionately to share their talent with the world. Social media gets a bad rap sometimes, but there is a lot of beauty to be found on them too. There are thousands of accounts that work to be a resource for women & to inspire us to live with purpose. Today I'm sharing my Top Five accounts to follow if you want to find God's word in beautiful little squares while cultivating an intentional walk with God.


1. Morgan Harper Nichols
Everyday she makes art & writes words as a daily practice of generosity. She asks followers to submit their story to her & then she randomly selects names each day. Her account is colorful & rich with words to brighten your soul.

2. SoulScripts
This account is a community, movement, & resource to equip women to live with purpose. They say "your brokenness is welcome here." The SoulScripts blog is a great morning read with a hot cup of coffee. 

3. The Daily Grace Co.
Equipping women in the word. Not only should you follow their Instagram account, but their website is full of resources, prayers, verse cards, Be Still (a magazine), a free book & so much more.

4. Coffee & Bible Time
Their whimsical bible doodles plus free Bible notecards are super cute. They'll inspire you to study the Bible & then to study more to find LASTING TREASURE.

5. Daughter of Delight
Everyday devotionals for the everyday woman. It's a refreshing feed. This is one I have saved for later, "While a little faith may bring your souls to Heaven, a lot of faith - clinging to God despite your circumstances - will bring Heaven to your soul." - Skip Heitzig

There you go friends. I hope you find a few new accounts that will bring joy to your soul. Please share some of your favorites with me!

Magnolia's First Time at the Movie Theater


We took Magnolia to the movies for the first time this Saturday. With her ability to stay seated on the airplane combined with her love of movies we figured she'd really enjoy it & she sure did. The moment we stepped foot in the lobby she started to run towards all the candy that was conveniently located at eye level. Sheer excitement ran through her little body as we entered the movie theater to see Disney's Christopher Robin.

18 Months


Magnolia at 18 months could not be any sweeter. It's been a while since I sat down & wrote about her & the soul that fills our days with so much happiness. Yesterday I was looking at photos of her from last summer when she was just a little baby that I carried everywhere. Then last night we went out for Mexican with some of Ryan's coworkers & on the way to the car she walked the streets of the city holding both of our hands. Moments like that often stand still when I'm watching her grow right before our eyes. Then this morning I woke up to her walking (in her sleep sack) in our bed next to me & she just about fell on my head. She gave me a little kiss to say she was sorry for almost smashing my face with her 22 pound body! Her personality is growing about as fast as her body & it's fun, really fun getting to know her. God picked us to be her parents! I think about that often & I pray that each day we are doing our best raising her into the girl God created her to be.

Our Family Vacation to Indian Shores, Florida


Last week Ryan, Magnolia & me, along with my sister Haley & her two girl's Mylene & Adalyn took a family beach vacation to Indian Shores, Florida. We rented a two bedroom beachfront condo & spent as much time as we possibly could with our feet in the sand. We rode the waves, looked for seashells, soaked up the sunshine, built sandcastles, napped under the cabana, smelled of sunscreen with salty hair.
