To My Kids

To My Kids
To my kids: you are far more capable than society would have you believe. Your thoughts and your insight are important.

Don’t fall into the trap of simply accepting everything you’re told. Be willing to ask questions, to find solutions to problems, to seek the truth, to bring to light issues that might make people uncomfortable.

Remember: textbooks and worksheets are not the end-all-be-all of your education. Learning is a lifestyle, an atmosphere. Fortify yourself with an education that follows truth, not the prescribed narrative.

You were created for an amazing, unique purpose. Never forget that. 🙏🏻

One of the Biggest Turning Points of My Life

One of the Biggest Turning Points of My Life
You know what I realized the other day? I only have three months left of my thirties. The big 4-0 will be here in November. That’s crazy, guys. I feel like I’ve only recently stepped into this thing called adulting. Can anyone relate?

Obviously I’ve been an adult for quite some time now (more than half my life, to be exact) but for too many years I avoided anything that challenged my beloved comfort bubble.

I avoided things like thinking through choices on a long term level...dealing with messy relationships...doing anything that would stretch my natural abilities and expose my pride...saying yes to scary opportunities.

I’m still not exactly sure what happened, other than I MADE THE DECISION to switch gears. I was tired of my immaturity and people pleasing and fearful way of living. I was in my mid-thirties with an amazing husband, a herd of precious kiddos, and buckets of potential... but I didn’t have the mindset to match.

All it took was MAKING THAT DECISION. The lights switched on in my brain, and I asked God to help me step into the abundant life He was offering. I changed my thinking, little by little, day by day. It wasn’t always “easy” but the outcome was worth it to me. Now when I look back at the person I was a few years ago, I feel a sense of sympathy. And gratitude, because no matter what, I know that the best is yet to come.
