It's time for #fridayintroductions!  Hello, I'm Jessica, & I just celebrated my 10 year anniversary with my sweetheart Jim last week 💕 For our anniversary, we took a trip out west 3 weeks ago! #takemeback .
.
We had been dreaming of going to Yosemite since we first got married, so we were so happy that we got the chance to go!  We went to Yosemite, Muir Woods, and San Francisco.  It was a dream come true 🌳 Absolute breathtaking beauty. (I actually cried when we first saw Half Dome!) .
.
We've now been to the Smokies, Yellowstone, the Tetons, Mount Rushmore, Pictured Rocks, Mackinac Island, Mount Vernon, DC, and several Civil War battlefields. .
.
So if you could visit any place in the United States, where would you go? .
.
We'd love to see Kings Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Zion, and Acadia National Parks.  And maybe the Grand Canyon too!  And we would LOVE to go back to Yellowstone.  It was beyond incredible.  We also love history, so I know my husband would like to visit the East Coast to see more battlefields and historical sites.  And I want to take the kids to Disney in Florida 😂 Obviously, this is our lifetime list!

What's on your dream US travel list?

Just because you pray it doesn't mean you will be out of trouble. Hard times mould you, and with prayer you always have enough strength to be on your feet until the storm is over 😢🙏

Got a little teary eyed while capturing Kiersten's first look with her bridesmaids. So much love & laughter & squeals.

Today, I felt lead to post something a little different…
—
In Proverbs 11 yesterday, I saw this verse and it popped out as something to share; so, I grabbed my pencil, and started to listen. Here is the verse:
—
“When a wicked man dies, his expectation will perish,
And the hope of strong men perishes.” (Proverbs 11:7)
—
The word “expectation” comes from a Hebrew root meaning “to wait for” or “to eagerly look for.”
—
So, to me, this verse translates as: When the strong man, a man who walks alone, in his own strength, apart from Jesus – “the wicked man” – dies, so goes with him everything that he has eagerly looked, waited, and lived for –  his hope.
—
To me, I was like, “Wow!” and then, of course, it got me thinking: So, what would that be? What does the wicked man hope for? What are the things that he lives for that will perish; and, no longer matter?
—
Well, I used to be that wicked man – that man apart from Jesus – so, it only took but a minute to recall some of them: a career, a family, financial security, notoriety, prestige…
—
And I could go on; but, what stood out the most, to me, wasn’t necessarily the exact things I had been chasing; but, the fact that, in the end, none of them would have mattered. I mean, so what if I had gotten everything that I had hoped for: the career, the prestige, the family, the friends…
—
Did I really think I’d get to the end, feeling the hope that I had been expecting for? What do my achievements mean to a grave?
—
Expecting hope in what you can give to yourself is nothing but a false hope, friends. It’s a false comfort that promises joy, fulfillment, wholeness, peace, prosperity, and so on; but, always leaves you scared, unsure, tired, worn out, miserable, and unfulfilled.
—
If you haven’t done so, friends, I plead: take the time to self-reflect. Track your expectations to the end and see if the hope your expectations have promised you, will be there.
—
“I wait for the LORD, my soul does wait, And in His word do I hope.” (Psalm 130:5)
•
“Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him.” (Psalm 62:5)
•
“For You, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive, And abundant in lovingkindness to all who call upon You." (Psalm 86:5)

"But may all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you. May those who long for your help always say, 'the Lord be glorified...'" // Psalm 40:17
It's only in His most Sacred Heart that I find true, lasting happiness and peace.
When you seek Him, you w i l l find Him...
He doesn't play games or toy with you.
Whatever season of life you're in, whether you're waiting for His voice, His path to be shown, or you're just soaking in consolation, whatever it is, always be quick to say, "Jesus, you are glorified."

Grace upon grace⠀
⠀
I like how in the Bible it talks about this phrase. Quite honestly I'm just used to seeing it everywhere: artwork, t-shirts, mugs..and you can sort of forget---is this in the Bible?⠀
⠀
But it is. ESV to be exact. ⠀
⠀
It talks about how Jesus is full of grace and truth, and we have seen the glory because He dwelt among us.⠀
⠀
The fullness of all He is seems to be expressed with the repeated -- grace upon grace. ⠀
⠀
Like if I said: That guy has money - you'd be impressed.⠀
But if I said: That guy has money upon money - you'd be like wow. He must be super rich.⠀
⠀
I think that's how Jesus's grace works.⠀
⠀
Do you think that's what grace upon grace means? Comment below.⠀

Inside Shrewsbury Abbey - founded as a Benedictine Monastery by Roger de Montgomery in 1083. It grew to be one of the most important and influential abbeys in England and an important centre of pilgrimage.  After the dissolution of the monasteries in the reign of King Henry VIII the part of the Abbey building which survived continued as a Parish Church - as it is to this day. Columns seen in my this picture are from 1083....💖

Praying for someone else's downfall will not make you any better. Anything that is from the Lord will be blessed. Sometimes you have to sit back and prop your feet up and watch how things unfold. I've always been told never to entertain a clown because you too will become apart of the circus.

It's flex Fri-Yay and I'm working to be Firm in Faith!!
.
Working on my strength from the inside out is what it's about for me. I don't have the biggest muscles, I sure don't have a 6-pack and I'm not as wise as so many of my other friends and fam, but I've come a long ways and just gonna get stronger from now on cause I'm going to keep working away step by step 👟
.
And the best part is we don't have to rely on our own strength cause that won't get us far....we need to do as 1 Corinthians 16:13 says .
Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong. .
When we lean on God, that's where we will get our strength!! Happy Friday friends!! Make it a great one 💪👌

Power Intervals 2 is no joke. At the beginning he says "this is the hardest workout in the program." My abs were still hurting from yesterday! My hair was soaked, my whole body is sore! 
Day 32/90 in the books.

RELEASE IT -to- RECEIVE IT •••
It's natural for us to sometime want to hold on to hurt, our past, what someone has done to us or not for us. I've held on to the thought of wanting my child's father to apologize to me for all the wrong he's done towards me and one particular thing that continues to sting a little to this day (my son is forced to do something- my son & I have discussed it though & we're okay). But like I really wanted him to admit all his faults. However, one day God spoke to me through a spiritual person telling me that I have to move forward and freely forgive him for his wrongdoings. That I don't need an explanation for the things he's done to me. I already knew the right thing to do was to forgive him and had forgiven him (or at least I thought), but when this person put it this way I realized I hadn't completely. Even if he never asks for forgiveness/admits his wrongs, I have now completely forgiven him. It's been a challenging road, but I have lifted that burden off of me.
•••
Colossians 3:13 says: “Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others.”
‭‭•••
Whatever is holding you down or you haven't let go release it so that God can pour into you everything He has for you.  Then have your heart and arms open wide to receive the blessings that He wants to give you. I'm telling you it's the best thing ever. My heart is full and my soul is joyful than ever before because of this!!!

We took a short run/walk earlier with the littles tagging along, sometimes in the stroller and sometimes running faster than me!! .
Kara and I are going to run a 5k on Saturday (my first). It's called Max's Race in East Lansing and we are excited about it. There are some kid races and activities too -- a fun morning for the family if any of our local friends want to check it out -- great event to support! .

Snack time with my little guy...it's all over and he's taking a bite from each carrot and then lining them up but the mess is worth him eating carrots and hummus with me 🥕🥕🥕
.
We make our own cause I think it's kind of expensive to buy. Experimented to figure out how to get it smooth like the hummus from Sultan's that I love. Would you like to know a few tips? .

Snack time with my little guy...it's all over and he's taking a bite from each carrot and then lining them up but the mess is worth him eating carrots and hummus with me 🥕🥕🥕 . We make our own cause I think it's kind of expensive to buy. Experimented to figure out how to get it smooth like the hummus from Sultan's that I love. Would you like to know a few tips? . . . . . . . . . . . . #mom  #momlife  #selfcare  #blessedisshe  #outdoormom  #countrymom  #countrylifestyle  #countrymama  #cosleeping  #cosleepingmama  #babywearing  #wellness  #savorlife  #kidsinthekitchen  #realfood  #healthier  #healthymama  #strongmama  #healthymom  #strongmom  #cleaneating  #eatingclean  #simplicity  #summer  #spring  #speaklife  #garden  #gardener

"Do you have an appetite for the impossible?"
How often we put the Creator of the Universe in a box, expecting these small-minded miracles (miracles nonetheless...), however, we were created for m o r e; to do b i g g e r.
Do you consistently seek big answers from a big God who can handle it?
Pray for greater faith, stretching your heart and soul to allow the King to enter.
Your life will be forever changed.

If I could go back in time and speak to myself during one of the toughest times of my life, I would remind myself of one thing: I am enough. I was brave enough to get out of that situation, I was worthy enough to love myself, I was good enough to make a real impact in this world.⠀
Maybe you need the same reminder today. Allow me to be the one to tell you that you are great just the way that you are! God has already placed inside of you everything that you need to be the best 'you' that you can be! You are enough. Put on the full armor of God, go forth and be great🌻.⠀

In reading about Jacob and Esau (Genesis 26-28), twin brothers born to Isaac and Rebekah, I felt that God knew there'd be many of us able to relate…
—
Esau, the older of the two, had so much hate for his younger brother, Jacob; who, it seemed, kept getting the world handed to him, despite his manipulative and deceitful behavior.
—
Oh, the feelings of injustice… can you imagine?! Can you imagine, from Esau’s perspective, how he must have felt watching his little brother get everything that should have been his, just because he was a master at manipulating and getting his way? How unfair!
—
When things happen in life that we can’t understand, one of the first ways of thinking we turn to is: “What have I done wrong?” or “What have I done to deserve this?”
—
You know, the word “deserve” has to do with punishment. It implies that something inside of you still thinks of God as this stoic, God-of-judgment, in heaven, who has nothing better to do but to look down on earth for people to punish; and, that’s just not true.
—
"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)
—
When we can’t understand the ways things are happening, or have happened, what we need the most is the comfort of God: to be heard. Esau needed this, too. He needed His feelings to be heard, and validated, by God, and for God to show him the Truth.
—
Listen, friends, trying to figure out what you know, with what you don’t know, on your own, will only lead you down the same, unresolved, emotional path of pain as Esau: helplessness, powerlessness, and injustice. This pain will turn into bitterness, and bitterness into a full-blown rebellion, and you’ll soon want nothing to do with anyone; unless, of course, it’s to repay them with evil; and, that’s no way to find comfort at all.
—
Friends, we have the truth – the whole truth. Unlike Esau, and because of Jesus, we know that we can approach God, anytime, and ask Him to show us the truth. God is good. He does not punish us as we understand punishment. Just, seek His name; and, under it, He will make all things known.

Thank you for your comments on my post yesterday!​ It's hard for me to admit that I'm struggling with everything that has happened over the past year.  The poor installation job of our windows on Tuesday on top of everything else just....ummmm, sent me over the edge! 
But your prayers and insights have truly been such an encouragement to me.  Thank you, my friends, for helping me through this journey with your prayers. 
One step at a time to living a life of joy!

P.S. I just got my Consider the Lilies journal in the mail!  I'm really looking forward to digging in and growing deeper in my relationship with Him ❤

Do good to those who hate you. Bless those who curse you.
Over the years, I have experienced pain and hurt from some that is deep. Pain that it hurt my body to take another step, another breath. Before coming to know Him, this pain overwhelmed my days. It consumed my thoughts and brought on many emotions of bitterness and anger. Once I came to know Christ, people would say just turn it over to Him, lay it at His feet.
What? What do you want me to do and how do I do it? That's the questions that would run through my head. I can honestly say, that after years of praying and growing in my relationship with Christ, I can lay it at His feet. I can turn it over to Him and let go of the emotions that in the past would consume me. I'm not saying that I don't have hard days. I do, the enemy uses past and recent pain and frustrations to make me doubt myself and to keep me in a place of being numb. But, I know where the enemy is in this and I see His ways.
We live in a sinful world. People are going to hurt us. People are going to sin against us. We are going to sin. We have to remember to go to Him and let him direct our paths and steps. Pray for the situation and the individuals and see how God wants you to use the situation to glorify Him.
He will give you the strength to let go of pain and bitterness. He will show you how to pray for the situation and the steps to take. He is a good God! He daily shows us His grace and compassion. Show this grace and compassion when you come into these situations and glorify Him in all you do!
Luke 6: 35-36

Are you tired of hearing me talk about healthy eating yet? 🤔😆 It’s ok, I get it. I hear a lot of…Eating healthy is more expensive. Eating healthy doesn’t taste good. And Eating Healthy is something my kids just won’t do. 🖓 .

I don’t eat “healthy” all the time. I eat right 80% of the time & the other 20% I have what I want. I mean what’s living if you can’t have nachos or stuffed crust pizza right🍕?😍 .

There are healthy recipes out there that your kids will 💖 & it’s important to teach them good eating habits at a young age. I definitely did not eat healthy as a kid!🙋🙃 .

As far as the price, I would agree… It’s so easy to grab something at McDonald’s for $1.00 but the long-term effect it’s having on your body does more damage than you know.

However, there is a way to budget for cheaper, healthier meals. It takes a little time to get used to but you & your family are worth the extra effort. Let me know if you need help, getting started is the hardest part!

Just updated and relisted this #StBenedict necklace!  Long #layeringnecklace with #SaintBenedict cross, #leathertassel and #gemstone bead. 
Who is he?  Read below:
St. Benedict of Nursia, Italy (A.D. 480-543), the twin brother of St. Scholastica, is considered to be the Father of Western monasticism, and his “Rule of St. Benedict” came to be the basis of organization for many religious orders.  Comment below if you have a special devotion to him!

"Say to those who have an anxious heart: be strong; fear not! ... God will come to save you!" // Isaiah 35:4
I had to redo this dang video so many times and by the time I got to THIS take, the verse had sunken into my soul and it was like God was reminding MY anxious heart that He, too, will come to save M E.
How stinking good is God!?
Such an amazing, gentle Father.
Be still, anxious heart.
He'll take care of you.

Building my business from my kitchen table while my kids play in their room!! I had to take some time yesterday to manage my time for the summer. I was finding that I was constantly working and not spending the time with my kids that I've been asking God for. That is no way to spend the summer!! But during the summer is my chance to be able to give my business the attention that I wish to give it EVERYDAY! If I can't get my time managed now, how is God going to grant me the desires of my heart for good?

I made sure to ask my kids when they would prefer for mom to be preoccupied. I reminded them why I'm spending this time working now, even during my time off from teaching. I make sure they know that mom may be preoccupied now, but It's so that I can be FREE when I can be home with them ALL year, rather than just during the summer!

If you would love to have FREEDOM  like I do, we're having a webinar tonight where you can listen in and hear how we are getting in the best shape of our lives both PHYSICALLY and FINANCIALLY! I'll drop the link below and you can click "Going" if you're interested! ✌

The Mona Utah Lavender farm—I got to see one of the places that my oils come from and witness the seed to seal process. I still can't get over how amazing the distillation process is.. but more than that I'm so thankful that my company allows people to see where their oils come from. I watched a video yesterday by a woman who has been with Young Living since before the Mona Utah farm was built. She said that many executive teams in the past have suggested that too much money is spent on the farms. We still have our farms. This is me on a pile of juniper prior to its distillation process. 🌿
Did you know that steam distillation takes 1 & 1/2 hours or so while chemical extraction takes around 15 minutes? We never use chemicals to extract our oils. More so there are specific temperatures and times of harvesting that play into the quality and frequency of an oil. ✨ Gary is the only one who distills oils at their best frequencies.

I'm in love with my new bracelet! It is a constant reminder for me to never limit myself and to never place limits on God. He can do so much more than we could ever ask or think and when He's in your corner, the sky isn't even the limit! ⠀

"Whatever you do, it will only be meaningful if you think about eternal life. If you truly love, you will realize that nothing belongs to you, because everything is a gift." // Chiara Corbella.
I just read about this amazing woman's life and was blown away at her view of suffering.
Absolutely astounded (partly because I realize how much I hate to suffer and I have a long way to grow in sanctity.. please pray for me!)
Everything comes from the Father above...
Everything is a gift.
And what a good Father He is!

It's national selfie day I heard??
.
I was the type who who thought only crazy people took pics of themselves 😜 I didn't want people looking at me and wasn't confident in who I was but that's changed since I have learned that I'm uniquely made by God and special in my own way. And so are YOU!!
.
Life is too short to care what others think? Let's be joyful and do what  makes us happy! .
