Today I'm thankful for the opportunity to provide a classical christian education for my teenage daughter. I'm thanful that she is spending her days with a community of leaders & mentors who encourage and uphold the same values and principles as our family. I'm thankful that she is exploring and cultivating the gifts God has placed within her.
We are indeed blessed to be a part of CCA and I'm so thankful for that 🙌
Today I'm thankful that no matter what did or didn't happen yesterday, today we get a do-over.
If I'm being completely honest friends, yesterday was tough.....one of those days where the to do list is a mile long, the kids are especially rambunctious, and your energy level just doesn't measure up.
You're left feeling depleted, run down, (and let's just be very transparent here) like a failure.......feeling like you have failed in every area.
We've all been there sis and yesterday was one of THOSE days for me.
The good news is that even when we fail, we are NEVER a failure because we have a God who created us all in His image and He NEVER fails.
Today I'm thankful that "His mercies are new every morning." What are you thankful for today?
~Someday when the pages of my life end, I know that you will be one of it's most beautiful chapters~
Today I am thankful for my first daughter and the blessing she is to our family. She is beautiful, kind, gentle, smart, she has a heart of compassion for others, she has a quiet strength running deep in her spirit.
I'm so grateful that God chose me to be her mom, I am blessed to witness His perfect plans for her life unfold.
She will always be one of my most favorite gifts of love from my Heavenly Father 💕
What are you thankful for today?

Today I'm thankful for laughter!! Everyone enjoys a good laugh to distract them from whatever is going on in their life!! A day without laughter is a day wasted!! The most common joke I hear at work is when I ask a customer if they want their milk in a bag and they say no thanks because they prefer it to stay in the bottle!! Its a dumb joke but funny. You are welcome!! #monthofgivingthanks . #photolab . #selfie . #laughter . #laugh . #dailyjokes . #grocerystorejokes
Yesterday we celebrated Victoria’s baptism!!! As part of my 30 day challenge I am grateful to be given the opportunity to baptize this princess. May God always bless you. Thank you to everyone who celebrated with us. Not all are pictured or in this post, but definitely in our hearts. We love you all! You all play an important role in Victoria’s life. #blessed#30daychallenge#friendsgivethanks#monthofgivingthanks
On this eighth day of giving thanks I want to say thank you to my man child!
He put his plans for the day on hold yesterday when I called and woke him up because his Dad needed his help.
I'm thankful for you every day 💙
Today I'm thankful for the piece of my heart I didn't even know was missing.
She came into our lives like a hurricane, a wild force of nature with a contagious smile, turning everything in it upside down.
She is an explosion of energy, silliness, giggles, and hugs. A rebellious wild flower, she is forever testing her boundaries and stretching me beyond what I think I'm capable of enduring. She loves hard and plays hard, never doing anything half way. Did I mention her smile that goes all the way up to her eyes and lights up every room she enters and every heart she touches?! I'm thankful for every moment of life shared with this beautiful wild child 💜
Fun fact....did you know rest is mentioned in the Bible seventy two times?
Rest is so important to God that the Bible says it was the final step in the process of creation, "And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made." Sometimes, I believe, God has to intervene and MAKE me rest. I'm thankful that He cares enough about me to call me to a place of rest before I'm completely overwhelmed and I'm so very thankful for my sweet Hubby who took up the slack for me so that I could get that much needed rest last night. ❤
Today I'm thankful for going to school at Salina Area Technical College!! I'm in the middle of my 2nd year! During my time here I have met a lot of great people,had a lot of great experiences,and I have learned a lot here. Yeah a lot of people who go to college tend to go to a 4 year university and that's great for them. However choosing to go to a tech school doesn't mean you are missing out. Salina Tech is a great school that has a close community since it is a smaller campus, there is more engagement between teachers and students because the classes aren't super big, it is cheaper, its a lot of hands on learning,and it is close to home. So if you are thinking about continuing your education or wanting to go back to school don't discourage the idea of a tech school just because it isn't what everyone else is doing. There is a lot of a benefits of going to a techinical college!! #monthofgivingthanks . #whatimthankfulfor . #college . #collegelife#technicalschool#salinaareatechnicalcollege#salinatech . #2yearcollege . #semperadmeliora . #mondaymotivation . #workingongettingmydegree .
Day three of the month of giving thanks... and I'm so very thankful for Heritage Church, our church home, and the vision and mission Heritage is living out for our community and beyond.
Lives are being saved, healed, restored, and fulfilled here and I'm so grateful God lead our family here about six years ago.
Can we pause for a second so I can give a shoutout to this incredible person? Ever year seems to be a whole new face of challenges and this years been no exception. I bought a house and am raising a demon (literally) all on my own and I probably talk to my mom 3 times a day on the phone- on a good day lol. These days melt downs seem to happen more frequent than not, and my mom literally doesn’t show once ounce of exhaustion or frustration or annoyance in her voice. She selflessly drops whatever she’s doing to be where I am and rescue me from whatever mad mess I’m in that day. I don’t know how she does it. I don’t know what I did to deserve a mom this great, but raising me I undoubtedly know has tested all of your parenting skills. And you have passed all of them with flying colors lol. I just sit here thinking like wow, what kind of love gives you everything they have at any time of day or night. That remains patient, understanding, forgiving, and answers in love. Every. Single. Time. I’m thankful for you mom. Forever and ever. Thank you for constantly being there to push me back when I start to backtrack. ❤️ #mommabear 🐻 #thankful 🙏 #love#appreciationpost 💕 #monthofgivingthanks#superheroslooklikethis#bestmomaward 🏆
