BIG BELIEFS, little beliefs.

I believe...

Decorative throw pillows are unnecessary.
Yes, I'm a girl. Yes, they are cute. Yes, they are a hassle.

I am Jesus's favorite.
So are you.

Emporer's New Groove can make anyone cackle out loud.
Love that movie!

I am my own biggest critic.
Read: loudest.

Cooking with my girls is one of the most fun things we do.

Moving is hard.

Just because it is difficult doesn't mean we shouldn't do it.

God is in the details.
Example: New friend comes over. My flattened boxes are waiting for pickup. She is moving; her good husband was about to spend $300 on a set of boxes, helpful, but causes her stress ($300 on boxes!!). Um, no. Room full of free boxes in Jesus's name. 

The Braverman's are a lovable, united, hot mess who wreak havoc on my codependency issues.
I want to Jesus to fix them. They would make a great Christian family--they are so generationally-minded already. But, they've got serious worldview prob-lemmms.

A piece of my family's heart is in England.
Love Tara.

It's easy to lose sight of your dreams.
Do you remember yours? That's not selfish. Dream big for God.

I have a love/hate relationship with bobby pins.
They have a job. Their job sometimes hurts me.

A peasant skirt covers a multitude of sins.
Pear-shaped? Too many ice creams? Peasant skirt.

Leaving the dishes and playing Yahtzee is important work.
Do it.

Proximity is irrelevant between friends.

There really is a season for everything, for everything a season.

We should live with intention.
Be intentional.

Getting "Girl Maintenance" (hair, toes, waxing, etc.) is directly attached to a girl's self-esteem.
Just sayin'.

Sometimes, you just need to cry it out.
And, sometimes it's an Ugly.

Sometimes, you just need ice cream.
Sometimes you need two.
Double fistin' it. Don't judge.  It was just for a second!
If you don't vote, you can't complain.
Just vote. Don't be ridiculous.

Married couples have the best sex.
Wait for marriage. Make up for lost time.

The Church needs to leave the building. 
Go to dark. Be the Light.


  1. Check, Check, Check, check-check!! Soooo Good! Especially the Ice cream and Church being outside the building!! Who are the Braverman's though?

    1. Thank you, Friend!! So, I've gotten addicted to the show Parenthood on Netflix. I cry every single solitary episode. I'm not sure if that's good?

  2. So always!! Again I will say you are wise beyond your years. There you go~ making Jesus smile again! Love you~

  3. Love them all! Currently need to be consumed with girl maintenance a little more. A friend's husband commented last weekend on my gray hair and how he didn't know I had any. I pointed out that no one is supposed to know I have any but I haven't made time to get my hair done. Then my wonderful stylist texted me the next day and asked if I needed my hair "did". I told her God must have spoken to her (haha). Making myself more blond tomorrow. :)

  4. I love how you said God works in details! So true! It's in the small things a lot of times that I find myself thinking, "wow, I serve an awesome God!" Glad to have found your blog and to be following now. Looking forward to future posts!


    1. Thank you for reading, Morgan, and for responding! I appreciate it. I'm so glad that 'details' resonated with you!
