Working on Priorities and Anxiety

Things I am working on: priorities, seeing God in the mundane, experiencing Jesus in the mundane, worshiping God in the mundane. Also, anxiety is a big struggle for me. I worry about big things and small things and sometimes it manifests physiologically. Sometimes my anxiety clouds my focus on Christ and I need to digContinue reading “Working on Priorities and Anxiety”

Sneaky Neglect and Digital Minimalism

I recently returned from a women’s retreat and came away with some pretty tough convictions. As a group, we watched this presentation given by Betsy Gomez from the 2017 Revive Conference. You can watch it below if you like, it is very good! Her message was inspired from the chapter in the book Adorned calledContinue reading “Sneaky Neglect and Digital Minimalism”

The Declutter Anthem: At Last Parody

If you’ve been like me, this month has been full of decluttering, organizing, purging, and spending lots of time in the Declutter like a mother official facebook group talking about all of Allie’s tips and Marie Kondo methods.

Undertaking the Kitchen Cabinets (DIY style)

I never thought October 14th would be our first snow fall. I guess that comes with the territory when living in Minnesota. The cold weather has been super unmotivating for me. I’ve also been battling a cold which I am finally on the mend from and the kids and I have had a lot ofContinue reading “Undertaking the Kitchen Cabinets (DIY style)”

Kitchen DECLUTTER and shop! {The ORC Week 2}

As much as I wanted to start with the more fun things like painting and decorating I knew I had to start from the inside-out. That meant taking everything out of the cupboards and purging, reorganizing, and rethinking the functionality of everything in my kitchen. I am in the kitchen like 90% of the time!Continue reading “Kitchen DECLUTTER and shop! {The ORC Week 2}”
