Some days feel like a hard climb up a long stairway...
The weekend is over.
The toddler is on a nap strike.
The chocolate is gone.
The weather is gray.
The to-do lists abound.
.
I'm learning to lean into the hard. Remembering to breathe, go easy, keep my eyes on the light, take it one step at a time. ❤

We made it to... TAHITI! However, in the spirit of being completely honest, we’re welcoming week 2 with a lot of exhaustion after a sleepless redeye flight. Coming from such rigid routine and structure, all the changes we’ve encountered thus far haven’t been the easiest. We’ve each had our fare share of short tempers, but we’re finding our way. We’re remembering to give ourselves grace through these changes: sleep patterns, time changes, dietary changes, and even the changes of being used to doing a lot of things separately to now doing everything together as a family. We get tired and cranky and short-tempered, and this doesn’t always make us want to spend every moment together. But that’s part of why we’re here. We’re here to take back time for our family and to see that God’s grace is sufficient enough for us even when we don’t sleep for 48 hours and lose patience toward each other, because His patience toward us never runs dry. We hope that this encourages anyone who sees what we’re doing — and maybe you want to pursue the same thing for your family — and thinks that every moment must be totally and completely over-the-top magical. It’s over-the-top magical because of the God we serve who sustains us through every trial and change that comes our way!

Dear Queens,
__
Don’t let anyone dim your light. Don’t stop striving for growth. Don’t stop making the steps to becoming the best Y O U that you can possibly be. Don’t stop trying. Don’t stop inspiring. Don’t stop empowering. Don’t settle. Stop competing. Don’t stop loving yourself. Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone. Don’t be afraid to walk by faith and not by sight. Don’t be afraid to let someone love you. After all, you deserve it. Don’t stop striving to strengthen your relationship with God. Don’t worry so much about people’s opinions of you. Don’t settle for convenience. Queens, don’t give up and don’t ever stop trying!

Stole this picture from @mybrunetteelife because it really speaks to me right now. There are a lot of unknowns in the next 2 weeks, 3 weeks, 4 months, 5 years... If I’m being honest I don’t like unknowns, they can be exciting, but they’re also scary! Life is full of them, though. So no matter how much I want to be in control right now, I’m daily learning how to let go and give my future over to God. ⁣
⁣
Embracing the unknown for me looks like remembering life will never be perfect, learning to be okay with fear, and trusting in a much bigger plan than my own. I spend so much of my life focused on myself and my own comfort. Taking that focus off reveals the true brevity of life, and so many more important issues. ⁣
⁣
Wow I didn’t even mean for this to be a long post?? Sorry guys! If you want someone to walk alongside through the unknowns (or just talk about life with), feel free to message me ♥️. ⁣

You ever have a week that just shows you how much more healing you still have to do? That's this week for me. The universe has shown me that if I want the future I desire I need to still put in work on myself spiritually, mentally and let's be honest physically too. I don't know if this video will help anyone or is relevant to your own life. As my old Manager Robbie at Natures Medicine would say "if the shoe fits wear it." #workingthroughpain #workingthroughthenight #resolvepasttraumas #dontholdontothepast #loveyourself #dothework #livetransparent #lisenandlookforthesigns

All the things in life.... I want to do... NOT .. I have to... OR... I should... OR... I ought to... but I want to live life on purpose.  I WANT to take care of my family, I WANT  to love my ppl, I WANT to go home,  I WANT to praise JESUS, I WANT  to provide meals for ppl to stay on their health journey, I WANT to workout and provide an encouraging place for people to improve their bodies, mindsets, and maintain their goals.  I WANT to.... I have been consistently blessed and I want to encourage you to look at your daily tasks and ask yourself... are you in mindset of “wanting to do, to love” or in mindset of “having to do, ought to love, or should do”....Because in reality.... none of us have to.... but let’s live life on purpose!  No complaining, but loving what we do!! 🙌🏻🙌🏻

Sometimes I just sit in complete gratefulness of God’s goodness.  He is good.
*
Today was one of those days as I was gently reminded to thank Him for the unexpected financial blessings that He has given us over the course of the past year.  Financial blessings we weren’t looking for, worried about, praying for, or “needing.” But for some reason, He is wanting to bless us with. *
*
Our family is getting paid to share something I have grown to become rather passionate about - amazing natural products that are changing people’s lives and an incredible, out-of-the-box business opportunity that comes with working with a company and team that loves Jesus and strives to be a blessing to others, along with measurable personal development. *
*
Because of these financial blessings, we have been able to go to bed at night financially stress free.  We can choose to have me stay-at-home with our growing family.  We can give more to more that need the financial blessing themselves.  We can keep moving in the direction of living completely debt free.  We can make several trips to and from NW Iowa in a short amount of time to be with family without thinking twice about the lost time at work not getting paid and the amount of money we have spent on gas and travel expenses.  We can pay for our children to go to an amazing Christian school.  And so much more. *
*
God is good regardless and I truly believe that.  But through this all, I am praying we can be a light for Him.  I don’t always know what that looks like and I know it’s not always shining so brightly, but I am choosing to continue trusting Him every step of the way.  Health and finances are the two biggest stressors on people’s minds as they lay their head down at night.  I would love to share more with you about how I could help with one or both of those. *

With the abuse within the Church weighing heavy on my heart, this quote, this reminder of who God is, and in whose image we are made, spoke so powerfully to me.... God is light. Let us live as children of the light. Let us fight the dark of secrecy and silence and hypocrisy and duplicity and deceit, with undying fervor.

The world may have told you to "fake it til' you make it", but GOD tells us to be abase and abound. Appreciate where you are without complaining, BUT always believe GOD for more!!! May His righteousness abound in you, so that you can rest in His promises knowing that He will grace you for the calling on your life! #AllGloryToGOD #MyHeartSpeaks #iAmNotAshamed #NoOneToldMe #WillingSacrifice #ThankYouLord #LiveTransparent

In the face of conformity, the challenge becomes living transparently and authentically. The entire tide of humanity seems to swim uniformly downstream, while Destiny calls you upstream. How will you choose to proceed today? Will you remain true to yourself and to your unique destiny or will you melt into the uniformity of the mass? #liveyou #liveauthenticly #beyou #bebrave #authenticity #destiny #livetransparent #bebold #presson #pursueyourdream #pursuedestiny #liveyourvision #liveyourdream #dream #purpose #vision #calling #uniquelyyou #whmommy #wellheeledmommy #sarawasser

For many many years I have been ashamed of or hid my story. And there are times I have told my story and had people think differently of me. I get it... My story is filled with alot of crazy things. Above all what I am learning most is that I am not responsible for peoples response to my story or how they treat me afterward. I am only responsible for shining my light as bright as I can, loving people no matter what and allow the negativity that people want to bring in my life to pass me by. The ones that stay after knowing the gory details are my tribe. They are the ones who no messy, who have lived through horrors themselves and have made it to the other side stronger yet gentle for they know what it is to be broken. #showup #dontbeashamedofyourstory #livetransparent #liveauthentic #bebrave #selfcare #selfawareness #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #pcos #artbycinders

I have had a few rough days this week, and there’s even been some tears. I’d like to tell you I had a good reason, but I didn’t. 🤷🏼‍♀️ The truth is that for all of my strong outward appearance, #wonderwoman , my emotions run high and close to the surface. I also have a hormone imbalance that sometimes spikes my anxiety, as well as PTSD. I’ve never openly said that. —I think I worry about a stigma. But I’ve recently learned that 3 other women, dear to my heart, also deal with this condition. So as I was sitting here overanalyzing every conversation I’ve had today, worrying about not having every aspect of my life and my future perfectly planned out, and drinking my herbal tea and listening to the rain while I read, I decided to post this. Because I’m learning that we aren’t supposed to do this life alone. And what good is it for anyone (other than me) to hide away and act like I’m...normal??? What is normal anyway! I don’t want to be normal. 1 in 4 people suffer from neurological/mental disorders and illnesses. And yet it is still treated like the elephant in the room. I don’t know who I’m talking to tonight, but you know who you are. There’s nothing wrong with you and it’s not your fault! Talk to someone you trust and ask for help. It’s not weak to take a pill or go to therapy! In fact, it’s a pretty strong and badass thing to do. You’re not alone! I am incredibly lucky to have unconditional love and support that fills me to overflowing. It’s so much easier to be strong when there is strength at your back. I am truly blessed! And to my ladies that that I know will be reading this, you give me strength and courage and I love you dearly! You are strong, and I am proud of you. I am proud of us! We survive. #strong #ptsdawareness #livetransparent

Posted in my non-fiction, used to travel blog! It’s a bit honest, so if you can’t handle it I recommend going back to one of my older posts.  There are some great pics of the GrandCanyon and Zion National Park 🌞

Shout out to @justwrite4kids and @bridgingthegap_llc Tomorrow they will be providing a safe space for children of incarcerated fathers to create letters and cards for this fathers day!! I salute them for not allowing these children to experience this alone!! No matter where life takes me, I'll never be too far from all the years lived through letters between me and my parents and so many other important people in my life! #AllGloryToGOD #MyHeartSpeaks #LiveTransparent #TheDeaconess #PoetryInMotion #NoOneToldMe #AuthenticMinds

My thoughts are drifting today and I thought of you... While most people will look at this picture and see me performing; I look at this picture, push past the pain and find solace in knowing you were there to support me 💞 #iMissYou #MyHeartSpeaks #PoetryInMotion #LiveTransparent

There are so many lessons learned in life that people choose to hold to themselves for a number of reasons. It could be hurt, shame, pride, anger, the desire to forget... I decided that none of them are more important than YOU! #NoOneToldMe #TheDeaconess #AllGloryToGOD #PoetryInMotion #MyHeartSpeaks #LiveTransparent #SpeakLife #SpokenWord #BeingWhoINeeded #EducateOurYouth #SupportTheArts

Here it is! Super excited, though this little hobby I woke up one morning and wanted to pursue has been quite the adventure! My site got hacked before it even went live and I had to start all over after weeks of work 🤦‍♀️ You live, you learn. This is the creative outlet I’ve been craving, and I’m excited to share my world with the world (or let’s be honest, mostly friends and family right now 😂). But new insta-friends, I see you! Thanks for following along ❤️ The link to my blog is in my bio! 😘

#flexfriday amirite? 💪💪 There is a big smile on my face in this picture which might make you think my life is super fantastic and perfect rn. In all honesty, it's been a pretty rough week for my husband and I. We were in the process of adopting a puppy, and he passed away on Tuesday afternoon. This triggered some pretty severe anxiety on my part, and I had my first panic attack since last summer. My routine has been thrown off and that makes it worse. 
So, here's some of the things that I have found helps me through those mental health bumps (I call it that because this mini episode is no where near how bad it has been for me and other people): 1) I downloaded this app called Calm, and I was sceptical, but those stories made me feel asleep pretty fast! I was shook. But not shaken awake, so cool. 
2) I listen to music that seems to speak my mind: Shawn Mendes new song In My Blood was on repeat. I swear this song is the anthem of our generation. 
3) I speak openly about how I'm feeling and recognize that it's okay to not be okay. 
TLDR: My life is far from perfect, but I refuse to give up. I will push through with the help from friends, family, and medication (which is FINE to take). Have a great weekend, friends. STAY STRONG.

*Incision post in 2nd photo* Over the past several weeks I’ve been dealing with some health issues. After establishing a primary care, and explaining all of my symptoms ordered me to get an ultrasound. Long story short, turns out I needed to have my gallbladder removed, so yesterday 3/21/18, less than 48 hours after seeing my doctor I did just that. Moral of the story is listen to your body people. #hospital #surgery #inpain #gettinghealthy #thislifeisajourney #gallbladder #gallbladdersurgery #onestepatatime #hungry #hardtostayawake #cleanslate #cleaneatinglifestyle #recovering #abdominalsurgeryisnojoke #feels #feelslikesomonepunchedmygut #listentoyourbody #yourhealthmatters #liveauthentic #livetransparent #loveyourself #gethealthy #fit #itsaprocess #youcandoit

Love spending time with my girls! These are the best days of my life! ❤️ ———————————————- Life can fly by at times and I truly wish I could stop time sometimes but I can’t. But what can I do is plan my time wisely and love Morgan and Ellie all the days of my life! I am and will continue to be far from perfect but in my girls eyes I want to be darn close and the man they need! The leader of the house, the one who makes the tough decisions, the one who laughs at the small decisions and the one who always makes them feel secure. I may come up short but I plan to give it my full effort for the rest of my life! 
Can any other guy relate or want to do the same for their family, wife, gf, kids etc... Let’s do it, let’s be the men God has called us to be and sometimes that just means being completely present!

Current life recap ~
About 2 week’s ago, I was victim of a drunk driving accident and almost lost everything. Crazy how one moment can change your life entirely. Tears. Healing + Lots of forgiveness in the process.

In light of it all, God’s given me the wild ability to view my lens through a whole new perspective + find peace in the ambiguous moments. Life is so precious. Enjoy the simplicity of being. 
Laugh as much as possible. Give grace continuously. Forgive + love as deeply as you can. In spite of the losses, choose victory! Keep pushing + keep thriving. Live each day for a better tomorrow ✨

Spring road trip done and dusted for another year. I got thinking this week while driving the 100s of kms around the countryside with Zali. There's this common perception of the wild, free traveller, an extrovert that takes all the opportunities and isn't afraid to strike up a conversation with anyone along their travels. Working in mental health is helping me on this path (where talking is a part of therapeutic healing) but it doesn't come naturally to me and I practice everyday. Someone said 'the magic happens outside your comfort zone' and I am a big believer in this. Don't get me wrong though, a nice day spent at home with close friends, tea and animals is a day well spent too.

I write this because I thought a lot while I was away and found the extroverted culture of western travel is overwhelming for people like me and makes me feel somewhat guilty about enjoying quiet time on my own. What a pleasure it is to know people for whom friendship is not a contract though. Where you can feel free from judgement for the views you put forward but friendly banter is part and parcel of the relationship. There is no fear of blanket stereotypes should one say something at odds with their own beliefs. Using my time wisely to catch up with great friends and family is a part of the way I want to live, transparent and true to my values (which means I should really give some people more than a couple of hours notice for a catch-up 😂 sorry guys!). Time is such a valuable commodity in today's world and because I am able to live on my wage working part time, this kind of life is much more agreeable to my path than striving for some intangible career to support materialistic goals.

Lately Cadence has been tough. She's testing the boundaries and pushing the limits and I am, in some moments, at a loss for words. Parenting can seem all sunshine and rainbows, especially on social media, but there are seriously hard moments and/or seasons as a parent and it is no joke. Cadence is one strong, independent little (wannabe grownup) girl and I love that about her but it makes for some tough conversations in this growing season of hers. I feel like I can see into the future at our conversations that I will have with her as a preteen and it scares the crap out of me. Haha! I'm so proud of who she is and I will always empower her to be strong and independent.

Lately Cadence has been tough. She's testing the boundaries and pushing the limits and I am, in some moments, at a loss for words. Parenting can seem all sunshine and rainbows, especially on social media, but there are seriously hard moments and/or seasons as a parent and it is no joke. Cadence is one strong, independent little (wannabe grownup) girl and I love that about her but it makes for some tough conversations in this growing season of hers. I feel like I can see into the future at our conversations that I will have with her as a preteen and it scares the crap out of me. Haha! I'm so proud of who she is and I will always empower her to be strong and independent. Mama's just tired. #reallife #parenting #parentingishard #cadencemarie #family #strongwomen #raisingastrongdaughter #proudmommy #imexhausted #realtalk #letsbereal #livetransparent #stronggirls - 2 years ago

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: 
I don't have many social media friends which I don't actually know in real life and so I know you will forgive me for being personal for a moment. 
We all have our 'worlds' dont we, our existences and relationships which form our meaning, hopes and sometimes our unavoidable pains. 
This is my world, these two, they break my heart and fulfill my dreams on a daily basis. 
Today, and since it is 23:12 tomorrow also, is a challenge 'thought for the day' - who/ what is your world? Have you told them? No!....tell them today? #cherishyourworld #thoughtfortheday #family #fatherly #fathersstandup #livetransparent #risklove

Confession time! I had a rough night. I had a writing deadline and the technical side of things was not working right. I tried everything. My son tried everything and it still did not work properly. The enemy came in swiftly telling me I had no business thinking I am called to anything. Why did I decide it was okay to dream again? I might as well just stop. Oh, he is good at the lies beloved and I listened which = little sleep to start another morning of VBS. Here is the thing. We know the enemy has come to steal kill and destroy. We KNOW this so when it comes this must be our answer! Truth trumps lies every time. This is the sweet life giving truth He spoke over me this morning. Maybe you need it also. " When you did awesome things which we did not expect, You came down.... The mountains quake at your presence.... For from days of old , they have not heard or perceived by ear. Nor has eye seen a God besides YOU.... Who acts on behalf of the one who waits for Him." Isaiah 64:3,4
Waiting on Him. Let's wait together. It's so much better than waiting alone. ❤️🙌🏻#bruisedbutnotbroken #deeplyrooted #shereadstruth #iamwriting #writinglife #writer #heisfaithful #hewillmeetyou #heholdsthefuture #widow #livetransparent #liftupyoureyes #lifeafterloss #parenting #momlife #mudroom #speaklife #speakhope

Smilin' SO hard because today, I am ONE YEAR self-harm free. Today, I am one year into my (very long and difficult) journey of recovery. Today, I am celebrating LIFE. Part of me is discouraged, because this is not my first one year anniversary--I've been here before, and I've fallen off before. This is one of the hardest things I've ever done, if not the hardest, and I am looking ahead to all the amazing things that are coming in my life. I refuse to claim the name "cutter". However, there are so many people still struggling. I've read stats reporting that up to 1 in 5 girls engage in self-injurious behavior. There is still so much stigma surrounding self harm. I encourage anyone who's struggling to not be afraid of what others will say, because they're gonna say it anyway. They're gonna stare anyway. Stand up for YOURSELF. Get help for YOURSELF. You and I got this. 💞🌟🙌🏻🎈🏅🎉

To everyone who commented on my post yesterday - thank you for your kind words, prayers and encouragement. When we're transparent about our struggles, Satan gets ticked off. He wants us to stay in the dark, to feel defeated, to hide in shame. 
But when we're transparent, all those yucky things are brought to light, and guess what...darkness CANNOT overcome the light. When we're transparent, it's like reaching out a hand to let someone else know they can be transparent, too! 
Don't be afraid to be vulnerable. Don't be afraid to speak your fears. Don't be afraid to be raw and honest and real.
You never know who might need permission to do the exact same thing. #1000gifts #itssimplytuesday #gorgeousweather #specialneeds #specialneedsmom #apraxia #dyspraxia #adhd #sensoryprocessingdisorder #suckitsatan #lightovercomesdarkness #livetransparent

I am a very simple person.
I have always been honest about who I am.
I am happy to be me.
And I will listen to those I love.  Even when I don't agree; I'll be here listening, lending a shoulder, extending advise.  Until you throw a stone I will not judge or point out the faults you've been hiding all too well. But when you think you can bring to attention something about me then believe me when I say I can air all your shit out because I've got nothing to hide 😘

Today I'm hitting reset. This past 7.5 days have been some of the most difficult and most enlightening days of the entire year. What I've come to realize is that while I may be great at pretending to be way more together than I really am, I'm actually just cheating myself out of an opportunity to grow deeper. I am learning that it is okay to really let people in and do so without constantly looking over my shoulder for the knife that's going to stab me in the back. I'm learning I am entitied to dream big! I am learning that it is okay to not be okay everyday. I am learning that I really do have value to add to other people's life and that it is okay to be wanted. I am learning to give and accept love without conditions. I pride myself on being a pretty real, transparent, vulnerable person, however it's come to the surface that I am actually very selective about to whom and to what degree, I am willing to be that. No more... and here is why! I deserve better than walking on eggshells in my own life. My children deserve better than to only know them what I show. My husband deserves better than for me to not adventure because be too scared to crack under the pressure. And honestly above all, I know that I cannot serve the people that God has called me to serve, until I get really real with myself. So as I prayed this morning, God gave me my word for this upcoming year... Truth. I will be focusing on His truth in my life and learning what my truth really is. 30 is going to be an amazing year of being authentic, transparent and vulnerable in deeper ways than I can prepare for. I'm stepping out of the boat and I'm going deeper in my journey. #truthwins #lifeisajourney #liveauthentic #livetransparent #livevulnerable #thisisthirty #mywordoftheyearistruth #boymom #navywife #navylife #wallisfamilyadventures2016
