What I’ve Been Loving – June 2018

What I’ve Been Loving – June 2018

Hi there! I hope you’re having a beautiful day. ❤ In this post, I will be wrapping up my month of June with you! 🙂 I ended up doing so many fun and productive things these last few weeks that I honestly feel like June was enjoyed to its full potential by me and my family. I haven’t been able to say or feel that way about most months recently because time either crawls by, or a whole month is gone before I realize it! In the case of June, however, I’m very happy to say that I lived it and it didn’t just disappear. ❤ Today, I’m excited to share why I enjoyed this past month so much! I hope you enjoy!

There Will Be Joy Again (Walking Through The Valley)

Hi there! I hope you’re having a beautiful Monday. ❤ This past Saturday, I planned out all the post ideas I’d love to share throughout this whole upcoming week. I’m excited to write them and post them – they’re going to be awesome!

To start off this epic bout of productivity (haha), I brought an uncompleted post idea I’ve wanted to write for a while out of my phone’s notes. I’m very happy to get to share the completed version with you today. ❤ Enjoy!

Sibling Adventures | Part Two

Sibling Adventures | Part Two

Hi there! I hope you’re having a beautiful Friday 🙂 ❤ This is part two of my blog series documenting the outings I’ve gone on with my siblings! Being the eldest of five kids has its epic benefits, including being the awesome family member who has lots of time to take the younger ones fun places, haha! This last month or so has held lots of adventures for us, and I’m excited to share some of them with you today. (Click here to read my post on the biking adventure I went on with Joshua recently!)

Praying For The Desires Of Our Hearts

Praying For The Desires Of Our Hearts

Hi there! I hope you’re having a beautiful day. ❤ The idea for this post came to me yesterday while exploring the Bible app on my phone. I came across a verse that has been both a comfort and a hindrance in my walk with the Lord over the years. The verse I’m talking about is Psalm 37:4, where the psalmist tells us that when we delight ourselves in the Lord, He will give us the desires of our heart.

I’d like to talk about this verse because it’s one of those promises of the Lord that can be easily misunderstood. Not quite getting the context can lead one to believe that when we pray for something fervently, and then still don’t get it, it’s tempting to think that this Bible verse is a lie.

I’m here to reassure you that it’s not.

Eighteen Months of Dreaming of Guatemala

Eighteen Months of Dreaming of Guatemala

Hi there! I hope you’re having a beautiful day. ❤ This morning, I was thinking about what post I’d like to write and share today, and within moments, I knew in my heart that this was the one!

I love adding to post series I’ve been keeping up with for a while, and the last post I shared on this topic was last September, where I celebrated blogging / Guatemala-dreaming for eight months! (Check out that post here.) Today’s milestone is quite a bigger one, and I’m so grateful to be able to say that these combined passions are still very relevant in my life. Thank you so much for reading – I hope you enjoy!

Going Biking With Joshua

Going Biking With Joshua

Hello! I hope you’re having a fantastic day. ❤ It has been a loooong time since I shared a post with pictures from a road trip, which is why I’m excited to have an experience to write about today!

Ever since I finally became more comfortable with driving again, I’ve been going a lot of places with my siblings. While I’d still rather not brave the interstate just yet (metro Atlanta is NO joke!), there are plenty of places we love to go that are off from back roads and state highways!

Today, I’ll be sharing pictures spotlighting the outing Joshua and I went on early last week! We both had a great time – you’ll see why in the pictures below. 🙂

Learning To Be A Humble Blogger

Learning To Be A Humble Blogger

Hi there! I hope you’re having a beautiful weekend. ❤ This is a post idea that’s been on my mind for the past few days, and I’m thankful to be able to share it today.

Recently, I have been thinking about how I’ve been blogging this past month or so – from the basic schedule I had laid out for myself, to the topics that have been being covered in my posts. I came across something while analyzing my blogging habits that piqued my attention.

I have been taking the responses of others on my posts too personally.
