Starting a Faith Journey | Saltwater + Grace

This is a tough one for so many people, and I get it. I am WITH you. It feels like all of a sudden you make a decision to go down this road that you know is beautiful but it’s just so unfamiliar to you… and all of these wonderful faith-filled people you know already…

A Quick Solution | Saltwater + Grace

This could potentially seem like such a basic concept but if you dig DEEP, you’re going to have a revelation. Like, A BIG ONE. If you take your wall down and get a little vulnerable, if you choose to be brave and face hard truths in this moment…it could change you. Let’s start with this….

Learning to Trust | Saltwater + Grace

One of the biggest hurdles I ever leapt over was when I decided to trust a group of women with a different part of my heart. Not just the “we’re in the same industry, yay!” part of my life…but a part I didn’t even know much about yet. The part where I started a walk…

Weak Made Strong | Saltwater + Grace

Sometimes the Lord just leaves me speechless and moves in ways I can’t even believe I refused to see in a previous life, when I was completely disconnected from him. It actually blows my mind. One of the ways I am shocked at my emotional and physical response to His ways is through the most…

On The Other Side Of Mom Breakdowns | Saltwater & Grace

During busy season, I tend to get very short with my kids during weeks where I just feel like I lack control. Post snapping on the other side of the mom breakdown, I feel guilty. I feel like I lack control and maturity. I feel like a bad mom. In the moments leading up to…

Working With Feeling Undeserving | Saltwater + Grace

I know you’re out there. You have one, two or several things in life that you “always wanted”. You waited, you worked for them…and now they’re here. And now, you can’t stop saying to yourself that you don’t deserve them…they’re too good for you. You don’t deserve to have these things that have been a…

What Took Me So Long | Saltwater + Grace

Have you ever arrived at an opinion, a lifestyle decision..a place in your life and thought to yourself…gosh, I’m here and I’m SO home here, so what took me so long to end up where I’m standing in this moment? That’s exactly how I’ve felt for the past two years since reclaiming my faith…even though…

New Every Morning | Saltwater + Grace

This season. I am currently existing as 90% shell of human and 10% living human. Ever since the hurricane weekend, things have been such a whirlwind and we’ve been having the most incredible sessions and weddings and loving our business but it’s the laundry, the dishes, the upkeep of life that is currently bogging us…

I Hate Running, I Love Running | Saltwater + Grace

Being in my thirties is this insane wake up call. It’s a maturity I’ve been really far from without ever having realized it and I’m surprised at how incredibly more grown up I am, how much wiser I know I am and feel and how in tuned with myself I’ve become. I could credit a…

I Prayed For Creativity | Saltwater + Grace

I prayed for it. Last year, when I was in and out of the hospital. Even IN the hospital, laying there alone because Mike had to take the kids home because they wouldn’t all be able to sleep there while I was hooked up to the IV’s. I didn’t specifically say “God make me more…

No More Boxes | Saltwater + Grace

I know I’ve mentioned the story a few times, but part of the way I came to finally stop the fight and find faith again last year was the product of me realizing that I actually had checked¬†everything off of my dream life list. I had a list…and it was very clear. It didn’t become…

Finding My Way in the Wilderness | Pursuit Conference 2016

This has been like, completely and utterly overwhelming to sit down and condense. I want to write a blog that scrolls for minutes as you hold that downward key and I feel like it would take that to encompass how I feel and how much I have to TELL about this conference. First things first..let…
