A Quick Solution | Saltwater + Grace

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…

The Saddest Conversation | New Mom Series

I am finding that I’m literally growing as a mother with all of our clients, colleagues and absolutely incredible blog and social media followers. I came to you all as a pregnant brand new business owner who started her business and family the same year. It was scary, it was SO full of what-ifs and…

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.

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?

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…

We’re Going HOME!!!! | Life By The Sea

It was a couple of weeks ago and I had had it. So many house searches and never finding something that we loved, that said HOME to us the way we dreamt of, frustrated with thinking it just would never happen anyway so why bother? And then the inner battles worsening to feelings of self…

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…

Just Give Me A Minute | Saltwater + Grace

I should absolutely positively NOT be blogging right now. My sweet Pursuit Conference roommate Kristi is smart and she’s asleep and here I am with eyes that can hardly stay open because of all the tears fallen from them today causing the salt to weigh heavy on my skin…I’m going to¬†definitely have a cry hangover…
