Processing and freezing beans for the long, cold winter ahead. The "office ladies" enjoyed a break from their desks, and we froze 3,800 lb of green beans! So if you're partial to green beans, don't act like you don't know where to come visit this winter 😜😄😋 #greenbeans #freezingvegetables

To the momma 5 years ago who had 4 children 5 and under... I want to love on you for a minute with wisdom grown with time.
⠀⠀
It’s ok to feel completely exhausted and admit it wasn’t a great day. They won’t always feel so overwhelming.
⠀⠀
It’s ok, the laundry can wait... the memories won’t.
⠀⠀
It’s ok to accept help or even ask for it. For it is not a weakness to admit you don’t have it all managed on your own but courage to admit you need support.
⠀⠀
It’s ok to make peanut butter and jelly + a few cucumber slices on the side for supper. The point is that belly’s are full and happy not that you come to the table with no energy left to give bc the pressure of every meal being a performance.

It’s ok to look at your changed body and feel foreign in this new shell. Deflated breasts perhaps new marks on different areas. But know you are so much more then a body.  The changes reflect babies grown, fed, held, loved. You grew too.
⠀⠀
It’s ok to want to be healthy but terms like “forever body” “last 10 lbs” “pre baby body” are not helpful to your soul. They distort the joy in honouring you. YOUR BODY. Period.
⠀⠀
It’s ok to be frustrated when you hear the terms “JUST” a stay at home mom. This is the greatest work right here of your life. You are raising humans who will be the next generation of our world. They are your legacy.

It’s ok to have your heart filled to the brim with gratitude for your blessings and family and still feel a piece of you has other gifts to share with the world outside of serving in your home.  It’s also ok if you don’t and serving in your home is your calling.
⠀⠀
It’s ok to speak your truth. It’s ok to have boundaries. Doing what is best for your family, your child, your soul is so important. Don’t worry about the noise of other’s opinions on what you should do. Turning down the volume of society is a muscle... grow it.
⠀⠀
Lastly, Dear Momma, I promise you will be ok... Always commit to what your heart is calling, and run right at it with everything you have got, give permission to change and grow. Be on fire for what is right, serve with your whole heart and whatever God calls you into follow. For trust you are held by your Maker.

Genesis 21:17 “God heard the boy crying, and the angel of God called to Hagar from heaven and said to her, “What is the matter, Hagar? Do not be afraid; God has heard the boy crying as he lies there. Lift the boy up and take him by the hand, for I will make him into a great nation.”

The grand opening of a 50 foot observation tower at the Woodcrest Bruderhof. The post-and-beam structure was built by the construction club of the Mount Academy using hand tools and techniques from the 14th century. The tower is made out of white oak and black locust pegs, just like the USS Constitution (Old Ironsides) which was launched in 1797 and is the world’s oldest commissioned naval vessel still afloat. We look forward to gathering in 2219 to celebrate that the tower is still standing!

E poi c’è il mare al tramonto , il sole che cade nell’acqua a rilento , la spuma delle onde infrante dai motori , e poi c’è l’estate , che ahimè sta finendo e non dovrebbe finire mai , per prolungare quella benefica sospensione che ci fa riappropriare di noi stessi. Ne abbiamo veramente bisogno , sempre presi da un numero inimmaginabile di cose , attività , tante anche inutili, ma il mito della produttività ci ha fatto perdere di vista l’essenziale , e questo tramonto al mare in barca ce lo restituisce in tutta la sua verità .
Riguardo questo video innumerevoli volte , e ogni volta mi immergo nelle sue emozioni, e mi perdo , per ritrovarmi e quando accade , non ho altro desiderio che smarrire nuovamente me stessa in queste luci .

Early this year I became very aware of areas of my life I would run straight to the “line of Greatness”. No fear chasing what I wanted and felt was right with my whole heart.  Pursuing purpose in that thing and greatness and feeling I would have a sense of arrival when I got there. If I could only get on the other side.

But when I began to graze “that line of being seen” or hitting the big goals I worked hard and consistently for I would pull back.
⠀⠀
I saw this example in my life over many years with relationships, my health, weight, my business, my gifts... everything.
⠀⠀
when the line was reached I would talk myself out of crossing it bc deep down my self worth didn’t aligned with that next level of me. I thought first I had to change the parts I didn’t like to be “her.” Bc my current self... well It didn’t look like them, live like them, talk, influence, grow like them. Whoever “them” was in that season. (There have been many according to what the goal I was chasing was in that season... not people in particular but what I thought the model of perfection was)
⠀⠀
I didn’t feel worthy or that being really seen would add value. I chocked. And then sabotaged success. The top level kind. I felt like a fraud.

What I didn’t see around me was that I was still being seen. When I made choices to grow or choices to numb the feelings of disappointment by selling myself short.  I was seen. I am seen. We are all seen.
⠀⠀
We can put a lot of energy into that “line of greatness.” My life and story will be good enough to be seen and share or even begin when I just loose that last 10lbs of baby weight, when we make $20,000 more a year, when I meet mr. right, when our crippling debt is gone, when we send our kids to that school, when my biz grows... when I, when I... ⠀⠀
What I am here to push back on is what is YOUR defining “line of greatness” and why is that the defining line to you?

What if you took a step back and looked at yourself with new eyes. You saw that those things don’t bring greatness.  You realized you will hunger for more when you “get there” bc what truly matters is what is inside and honouring its good enough always... ⠀⠀

Love did you know, Your happiness + your dreams are up to you.  It’s yours. ⠀⠀
I recently read by Rachel Hollis “you don’t have to give any justification, because as long as you’re not asking anyone to give you approval, then you don’t need anyone to give you permission.”
⠀⠀
What if you stepped out and tried something new?
⠀⠀
As our summer together is coming to a close my heart has whispered over and over share the opportunity your family has created  more bc there are more loves like you craving time with their families, needing more space to breathe.
⠀⠀
Craving the freedom of choice...
⠀⠀
Time + financial freedom to walk out a purpose that calls you in bigger ways.  Space to expand, grow, breathe, and be you.
⠀⠀
So loves that are looking for something that lights your fire...
⠀⠀
Babes who know they have leadership skills deep down untapped that could serve so many others but not sure the platform to show up and use those gifts.
⠀⠀
Babes who love teaching others about what they have learned simply from loving products you use in your day to day.
⠀⠀
Imagine creating more freedom in your lives simply from sharing about what you love.

This won’t speak to everyone but I know there are a few who need to hear this... You know who you are bc your heart just skipped.
.
Darlings I am telling you there is a community here that wants to help bring out the leader in you, wants to help you grow your gifts and create the freedom your heart desires + craves. To walk out the purpose placed on your heart.
⠀⠀
Years ago God placed on my heart to share oils and to create leaders to do the same.  It didn’t make sense at the time but over the last 4 years became so clear to me why I was called here.
⠀⠀
For I believe The world needs more of us showing up to serve one another. If your heart is curious I want to talk my love and tell you all about what is waiting for you when you let your heart be wild and dream again.
.
Message me. Let’s date, chat, dream. 💗
