Our little family

A friend of mine offered to take our pictures in exchange for me taking theirs. So I jumped on that! We took them in a little park in her neighborhood and I love them!






Book Review: Wait and See

by Wendy Pope

Synopsis:
Finding Peace in God's Pauses and Plans

When waiting on God stretches for months or years, we might begin to doubt His promises. Did I hear You correctly God? Do you see what I'm going through? Why does this have to be so hard?

In Wait and See, Wendy Pope draws on the life of King David to help us:
- Focus on the Person of our faith rather than the object of our wait.
- Prepare for the future by participating in God’s work in the present.
- View God’s pauses as opportunities to know Him better.
- Gain confidence in God’s plans, even during uncertain times.
- Step out of the security of the known to find peace in the unknown.

How can we take every opportunity to focus on God and His beautiful future? This hands-on guidebook will show you how to transform a difficult season of waiting into a sweet season with God.

My thoughts:
I loved loved loved this book. Such a great way to weave in the story of King David and the waiting we can all go through. I loved the way the book was more than just a story, it really helped you get into the Word of God. And I loved the part about writing your own story at the end of the book as Chapter 10! I did this as a part of Proverbs31 Ministries Online Bible Study and it was one of my favorites so far.

Book Review: Uninvited

by Lysa TerKeurst

Synopsis:
“Rejection steals the best of who I am by reinforcing the worst of what’s been said to me.”

In Uninvited, Lysa leans in to honestly examine the roots of rejection, as well as rejection’s ability to poison relationships from the inside out, including our relationship with God.

With biblical depth, gut-honest vulnerability, and refreshing wit, Lysa will help you:
- Stop feeling left out by believing that even when you are overlooked by others you are handpicked by God.
- Change your tendency to either fall apart or control the actions of others by embracing God-honoring ways to process your hurt.
- Overcome the two core fears that feed your insecurities by understanding the secret of belonging.


Uninvited reminds us we are destined for a love that can never be diminished, tarnished, shaken, or taken—a love that does not reject or uninvite.

My thoughts:
I really enjoyed this book. It was my second study with Proverbs31 Ministries Online Bible Study and I really enjoyed it. It was such a good reminder of the love God has for us and that we can't find that love anywhere else but through him. No one or no thing else can fulfill us like he does.

Paw Patrol birthday party for our 3-year-old!

I cannot believe our little boy is 3!! He has grown and changed so much and it amazes me. Sometimes I look at him and can't even believe he is mine, I love him so much!!

This little boy is all boy and wanted a Paw Patrol birthday party this year. We decided to go with My Gym as our party place because it was definitely less stress and more time to enjoy our little guy. I didn't take a ton of pictures because I was having too much fun watching him enjoy his party!













He is THREE!!



THREE!! I cannot believe my baby is three... wait, not a baby anymore a big boy as he likes to call himself. He has grown and changed so much and just a joy to be around. Everyone always comments on how sweet he is and how much he looks like his daddy! When he feels something you know it. When he is happy, he is overjoyed. When he is angry, well... he is very angry! He makes the cutest faces to show his emotions and has a little sassiness to him... must get that from me. Playing outside in the dirt is his favorite! Can't wait to see what this year holds for him.

This year, I took his pictures at my parent's farm... he wasn't really into taking pictures this year but we got some good ones!
