    Dressing A Modern Day Gentleman | Small Shop Fashion Finds For Your Toddler

    Disclaimer: Some items in this blog post were gifted in exchange for promotion if I truly liked them. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

    As a boy mom you have limited options when it comes to finding trendy and cute clothing for your child. With girls you have tutus, dresses, floral rompers… everything, but it isn’t like that for boys. You have to strategically plan an outfit. After Joshua was born I realized how hard it was for me to find small shops that cater to our style. That is why I put this post together! Hope y’all enjoy and be sure to check out each of these awesome shops!

    I Saw Beth Moore LIVE! | My Living Proof Live Experience

    Beth Moore, in my opinion, is one of the most phenomenal speakers that I have had the honor to hear. I was raised listening to and participating in her bible studies. Oh, the perks of being a PK. For those of you who do not know, a PK is a Pastor’s Kid.  In fact, the first bible study my mom ever taught was Beth Moore’s, Daniel. I have done that particular bible study what feels like 5 billion times and each time God showed me something new.

    Recently I had the opportunity to see Beth Moore speak live in Wichita Falls, Texas, with my mom and best friend. We bought tickets the moment they went on sale, I knew that this was an experience that I wanted to share with my mom. The place was packed. Every hotel room in the city was booked for the weekend. The first night we experienced the worship and teaching from the nose bleed section and it was just as phenomenal as sitting six rows from the stage to second day of the conference.

    Dealing With Mom Guilt | My Personal Struggle With Mom Guilt As A Stay At Home Mom

    It has been one year since I held my son for the first time and the mom guilt is beginning to sink in. I feel guilty for feelings and situations that I had no control over. I was robbed of the first six months of my son’s life, the squishy stage as I like to call it. Those months are all a blur to me and it hurts. It hurts only having pictures and stories of my son’s birth but very little memory of what happened while I was in the hospital. It hurts not remembering the first time he rolled over. It hurts only remembering the pain and exhaustion that overtook my body those first months. It hurts seeing the pictures and how much he has grown but only recalling memories from six months old until now, and even in that time frame some memories are a blur.

    If you were to ask me about those first months of my sons life I would describe them in these four words, angry, frustrated, scared, and tired.

    A Week Of Kindness

    Kindness is a language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.
    -Mark Twain

    Recently the family car broke down and we sat in the Lowe’s parking lot for Three-ish hours. A baby strapped to my back and my husband trying to figure out why our car won’t start people just walked by like it was nothing. A handful of people looked our way but immediately turned their head when we noticed them. One man stood by his truck for 5 minutes watching us struggle before he left.

    In the world we live in today we are seeing less and less kindness. We are seeing people so self absorbed that they will turn away when something requires them to go above and beyond to simply be kind. Mark Twain hit it on the dot when he said the quote mentioned above. Kindness is a universal language, everyone understands it even children. This week I want to challenge you to make it a point to be kind with a week of kindness! I want to challenge you to simply not look away when you see someone in need even though it may be the slightest inconvenience to you.
