Ahhhhhh I am so STOKED to have an area within my website to discuss clean food and clean bodies. I want to share with you things I have learned and things I am learning! 

I feel SO wonderful when I eat clean and move my body! You will GLOW  from the inside out. It's not just what you eat and its not just how you move, but it is also what you put in your heart and mind. 

 

Jorney along with me as I share fitness & eating tips as well as how to GLOW from the inside out. I cant wait to hear your ideas too!

 

I came across this quote by Pastor Rick Warren on Pinterest and I.JUST.LOVE.IT.

"God created it. Jesus died for it. The spirit lives in it. I'd better take care of it." - Pastor Rick Warren

I need a tank that says this....need, not want....need! :)

 

Get your GLOW on friends,

Melissa

Have you heard of First 5 or the IF gathering?

 

These are great ways to dive into the word. First 5, is just that ...the first 5 minutes of your day...before your feet hit the floor. First 5 is an app and you can set an alarm through the app, for a good time of the day or morning for it to go off. It will remind you to stop and make time for the one who created us.

I try really hard at doing this first thing in the morning....but, YEP, I totally fail really hard and often! It happens to us all, we have great intentions and then BAM! Your little ones wake up and its crunch time to get the morning going before school. You plan for later and then the list of chores hits you along with errands and deadlines for work. You plan for even a little later....then the kids come home from school, and its ON...GO time people!!!They play, you play with them, snack time, homework time (which is always SO fun, right?!), dinner, cleanup, bath, annnnnnd bedtime!! Dare you sit down after you have tucked those little angels into bed OR it WILL happen, you fall asleep! ahhhhhhh and then it starts all over again! ;) I call it my beautiful crazy~busy life!

Lets face it though it is hard to find the time, actually we should say make the time. Becasue really its up to us....we must make the time. If we have time for all this other stuff, we can totally make time for Our Lord and Savior the one who created us, right? One of the ways he speaks to us is through His word, I need to hear from him every day.

I am excited to have my new website as a more of a blog set up and to have a special place to share with you just How much He loves each of us and how He is working in my life and others. I want to share my Savior with you as we journey through this life, to lift people up, to point them to HIS LOVe.

This is my first post on this new website and I hope you will join me in Making Time for the God who created us and gave us life. Please jump in and comment. Share your thoughts and your story as we journey along together. Let us lift each other up and let this be a place of love, a place of truth and most importantly a place where we point each other to our Savior through it all.

Check out First 5, I have loved it so far and the IF gathering is wonderful too. Both will get you started with a little time to get into His word. As you make more time, you can deeper with each devotion.

 

In HIS LoVe,

Melissa

Another Miracle

The morning of January 7th I woke up anticpating when my phone would ding.... with a text saying "He is here!" Along with a picture of course. 

I wasn't suppose to leave Austin until the following weekend.....BUT, OH my heart just could not stand IT! I had to leave as soon as the texts started coming in announcing the arrival of my sweet nephew Caden Thomas. I'm so thankful to my husband that I was able to drop everything, hop in my car, and head out of town to meet the new little man. It fills my heart with Joy to see my brother so happy with his sweet family!

There is nothing like holding a warm, brand new bundle of life. You can't help but feel the Love of our Lord as you snuggle this little miracle of life.

 

I'm a proud Aunt!!!!

 

 

He. Is. Precious.

 

Of course I took my camera along for some newborn shots, but we missed having his older brother in the shots. He was too busy having fun with Granny and Pawpaw.  Enjoy ;)

For more pictures go to my newborn Gallery. 

 

Could her smile be any bigger??!! It's just Pure JOY, when a momma holds her newborn baby. LOve her so!

The Best Proposal EVER!

I had the biggest smile when the news came across facebook that these two sweeties were engaged!! I met them through my best friend and had the pleasure of doing a shoot with them back in 2012 with their adorable doggie, Brody! Well now Brody is a giant, but still as playful as ever!

                       

 


Friends, let me tell you Austin's proposal was beautiful and I will be showing it to my boys each and every year until they meet the girl of their dreams! ;0)

It was so sweet and centered around God, He bought Brittney a bible and had her new last name engraved on it, then he had the ring tied to the ribbon marker in the book of Ephesians 5:31 "For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife and the two will become one flesh." It was so precious and tender.

They are a beautiful strong couple... love them! I had to post a picture that Brittney shared of the night he proposed...oh and on her birthday!!
