Shopping My Own Closet

How often do you find yourself staring blankly into the opening of your closet and thinking, “Ugh. I have nothing to wear. Absolutely nothing. I think it’s time for some new clothes”? Continue Reading…

A St. Patty’s Day Story

I only loved one guy before I met my husband. He was my longest dating relationship prior to meeting Josh. And I’m proud to say the relationship lasted an entire six weeks.

God Doodles

Last summer I took a solo trip back to my hometown to hang out with my Mom and Dad. It was between Mother’s Day and Father’s Day and I wanted to spend some one-on-one time with each parent to celebrate. This type of hang out time is rare for us and it may have happened only once since Josh and I have been married. My Dad is an Illustrator by trade and he really enjoys doodling.

But…HOW do I find my Purpose??

Alana —  February 4, 2014 — 9 Comments

In case you’re wondering what to do with your life, this is it. First, you start with something you love. If it’s singing, great. If it’s writing, awesome. If it’s playwriting or playing the trombone or developing video games, even better. Maybe for you it’s just hanging out with people, making them laugh or feel really good about themselves.

Combating Fear: Part 2

Jenean Moore —  January 30, 2014 — 2 Comments

flowersAt the end of 2013 I reflected on the year and acknowledged that I had been in fear. My first step to combating fear was to STOP PLANNING. (Click here to read my first post “Combating Fear: Part 1”) Instead of trying to coordinate every detail of each day in 2014, I am taking things as they come. In fact, instead of a resolution, I am focusing on one word for 2014: SIMPLE.

After last year, I do not want another year of chaos, stress or fear. Of course I can’t control the circumstances of life OR, as I’m learning, I can’t plan every detail. I need to do better at trusting God with His plan and being a good steward, wife, daughter, sister, friend and stranger along the way. I want this next year to be filled with great new beginnings, incredible blessings, positive habits, spiritual stepping stones and a lot of fun. Continue Reading…

Combating Fear: Part 1

Jenean Moore —  January 28, 2014 — 12 Comments

2013 was a year of fear for me, but I didn’t realize that until the last couple of months. I actually thought the year revolved around stress! Let me give you a brief summary.

deerMy husband and I were living in Wisconsin as he started his doctorate two years prior. We moved not knowing anyone and were farther away from family and friends. From day one we had experiences that had me ready to move out of that state ASAP! My husband was busy with his intense program and clinicals. That was his full time job…plus some! I was working full time to make ends meet…but in the most stressful environment I’ve ever experienced. Despite attending a great church and having new friends, it was difficult to be further from family and friends we had grown close to in our first years of marriage. Our quality time together was impacted by the busyness of school, work and stress. Continue Reading…

Stitch Fix #1

Alana —  January 19, 2014 — 6 Comments

Surprise! I’m adding a couple new elements to the blog – Fashion and Beauty. These have always been an interest of mine and I found it only natural to share these parts of me with you too!

Today I’d like to introduce you to Stitch Fix. My coworker told me about it. Sometimes I feel like I’m in need of help and inspiration when it comes to fashion, so I thought I’d check it out.  The basics: You fill out a style profile and a stylist will pick out items specifically tailored to your body size, shape and style. The items are shipped to you and you get to pick out what you like and return what you don’t! I received my first “fix” on Thursday. Below you can see the goodies.
