No Monday Morning Blues allowed! 🚫
Not a single Sunday ever goes by that I am not super thankful for my little side hustle that has given me a shortened work week. 🙏🏻

I adore date nights with this guy! Last night, we went to our first concert in almost three years, stayed out way too late, sang all our favorite songs entirely off key, and had a blast. We aren’t married yet, but, I fully intend to date my spouse. That’s one of the big pieces of marriage advice we’ve been given. What other pieces of advice would you give us leading up to or for after our wedding?

I love this picture not for the “romance,” one might see in it, but because Matt and I had been at each other’s throats about 30 minutes before it was spontaneously taken. But in the 4 years we’ve been married, we’ve came to understand that our battles aren’t against each other, but against the enemy. He (Satan) seeks to kill and destroy- ESPECIALLY marriages. So while it may not always be easy, it’s ALWAYS worth it. Look at your partner, tell em you love em. Give em grace. Be gentle with your words and quick to forgive. Make a choice every day to love one another, and do so fiercely. (📸: @felicia.a.inman ) #beatingfiftypercent #beating50percent #dateyourspouse #marriedlife #Marriage

Spent some time just hanging out with this guy!! And you know he loves ya when he says, “hey babe, you want to just go check out the mall today?”
.
.
LOL!! Neither one of us are big shoppers or care to spend time just shopping for the joy of shopping. We are usually on a mission to find something and go. So to be invited to just go hang out was a big deal.
.
.
And that is just what we did. We meandered from store to store just looking around. We did pick up a few finds. Nothing too big. Just some shoes, a few items of clothing, and a small tool set. Most of all we just enjoyed being with each other!

Last night, two of my girlfriends whose husbands are deployed with Chris stopped by and we chatted about all things deployment...and not. At some point, we were talking about not being able to send or receive photos when Emalyn chimes in with, “I know what kind of photos you’ve been sending Daddy!” Cue panic and embarrassment and a fit of giggles all around.
And, just so you’re all not left wondering what kind of risqué photos I’m sending overseas, it was this one... 😂

Pool time for us is connection time. We get to connect without the distractions of our day to day life. Talk about our plans, celebrate our wins and reflect on the lessons we’ve learned. This month there have been a lot of lessons and changes. All positive but, they didn’t come without a little chaos, resistance and frustration, leveling up never does.

Right before a breakthrough, right before your about to up level and step into a higher vibration, shit gets wild. Mars in retrograde is no joke.

This past month pushed us and challenged us incredibly on so many levels. It feels amazing to be on the other side of it and be able to clearly see evidence of the up leveling that occurred.

It blows my mind how much we have gone through together and we still stand strong. Being misunderstood and heavily judged has made us stronger as a couple no doubt. Upward we go. We are so ready for a kick ass finish to the year🔥

Once in a blue moon, Justin decides to join me for a workout instead of going to his gym. Today was one of those days. I love it. He hates it 😂 but we definitely have a lot of fun!

Dear Husband,

You use to get the very best of me. But now by the time you get home, the kids have me worn down. My makeup is smeared. The house is a mess. I'm doing 100 things at once. We try to talk...but you have to fight the kids for my attention. It feels like you get the last of me. But husband, I loved you first. You still hold my hand and steal kisses amidst the chaos. You are patient. so patient, and gah, you are so handsome! This life, these babies is all we've ever wanted. It might be messy and crazy, but it's beautiful and we make an amazing team. Even though it feels like the kids need us for everything right now. I want you to know, that I see you. And these moments of us loving eachother first...will be the ones that shape our love forever. Right now you often get the last of me. But you are everything to me, now and forever. Because I loved you first. And I so cherish these special date nights with you even if they aren't very often! I love you!

Les and I had such a great weekend together. The weather mostly held off for us. We got rained on a bit hiking but it cooled us off. We hiked to natural bridge and also kayaked. Beautiful!! It definitely wore us out but was beautiful. Swipe to see more #hike #paddle #kayak #naturalbridgestatepark #olecornfield #mtsterling #dateweekend #dateyourspouse #mylove #legsweretoast

“Don’t just invite them to the table, invite them to Jesus.” ❤️❤️❤️ I don’t know the amount of meals eaten at this table or how many stories and laughs have been shared across it. I don’t know how many recipes it has seen or how many hands have folded to say grace a top it. I know that it belonged to my grandmother, though, and I know what kind of heart she had. In its last years with her, this table served as a laundry station, housing all of her detergents and things and allowing her some extra space to fold. I like to imagine that it once displayed some of her traditional Filipino food and stood as a place for the hospitality she was known for. My dad has always described her as the biggest little woman you’d ever know, and it’s so true in many, many ways. This table came to me after her passing, and, with my mother’s help, I scrubbed and sanded years of stains and wear down to what it is now. We allowed it’s hairpin legs to shine again and provided the support it needed to sit level once more. Now, I know for sure that it is treasured as a connection to the past, and particularly a tie to such a dear loved one, and it will continue to be as long as I live. It will serve as a space for sun kissed breakfasts and weekend lunches and family dinners, and it will be the place we thank the Lord for our daily bread. Looking at it, sitting beneath the window, catching the little bit of sunshine we’ve gotten all day long, I can’t help but think of her and take delight in knowing how happy she would be to hear about my life now. Sharing a marriage with a man as good as mine. Making a house into a home. Seeking the Lord in the midst of a new adventure. She would be so proud, and that alone makes my heart sing today. Happy Sunday, friends! ❤️❤️❤️

I sure do love this man! We have had a very hectic last few months and have been looking forward to this weekend away together for quite some time. It was such a wonderful weekend! We both had our first massages, I got a fancy Disney pedicure, and we indulged on lots of yummy food and drinks. So blessed to have a weekend with just my love and I. #disneygram #dateyourspouse #weekendvibes

Date night is always one of my favorite nights. This man is my biggest fan and I'm so grateful for him each and every day.

Last night my wonderful husband planned a surprise date for me...he even planned dinner at the time of sunset to eat under the lights and stars before the show. The show was amazing, but the care and thought he put into the whole night made it a dream come true. I appreciate all you do for us, from romantic nights to doing the dishes, and helping me dismantle our bed so I can make sure we aren’t housing spiders 😂 I love you and so blessed by your love, it’s on honor to be your wife! ❤️ #godisgood #liveandloveout #ihatespiders #yesicleanundereverything #ilovehim #dateyourspouse

Always bitter sweet for @brownmcleod & me. Two weeks, no kids. Sounds like heaven, right? 🤔 It’s always about day 3 or 4 we realize how much our lives revolve around these not so tiny any more humans. 👧🏻👦🏼. -

Grateful to dive into our couples bootcamp starting tomorrow. Grateful for the 16 years of putting in the work into us, and I’m pretty freaking pumped to not have to answer the question of “Mom, where’s my....” for the next two weeks! 😂😂😂

❤️Date your spouse!❤️

It’s so important to take time away from busy life and reconnect with the one you love. After our third child was born, our lives went into full blown chaos. We had no family help in town, Matt started a company and I was completely exhausted. Our pastor from church gave Matt a book called “Date Your Wife” and it was a game changer for us and our marriage. We began to prioritize time away together and it enriched and blessed our relationship so much. Lastnight, after 7 months combined of us both prepping for shows, we kicked off our regular date nights with dinner and a movie. It was just what we needed after a long work week/summer days home with the kids.

#dateyourspouse doesn’t always have to consist of dinner & drinks. This morning we took a walk on the beach (had to sit because my sugar dropped), it was so peaceful and nice to have a conversation without kids interrupting us. 😂 .

Showed up 15 minutes late to church today...maybe that’s normal for you😂or maybe you always show up early. Whatever it is, I am just thankful once again for the message preached on marriage at church today. We also were challenged to go out on a date with your spouse, and I think I will gladly accept. Share with me your favorite summer date ideas!! And happy Sunday! - @kensibolkema

Sometimes, you just need time away. I appreciate this man more than he knows. I’m a dreamer and planner. I don’t mind working hard for those dreams which means sometimes he gets pushed to the back burner. Thanks for supporting me and my craziness! ❤️

I interrupt cute pictures of the cutest girls ever to bring you a sappy post about my husband😆😍
.
6 years ago we started a journey and had no idea what that journey would entail, and for how long. 6 years ago we became “official” by Facebook and it’s been the best 6 years!😍
.
I can literally remember that first summer we spent together like it was yesterday and can vividly remember the moment I fell in love and said to myself, I’m gonna marry him one day. Cheesy I know. What can I say, I’m a hopeless romantic!
.
6 years, 2 babies, countless laughter and one of the best days of my life later, I get to call this guy my honey buns, my teammate, my person, my partner in crime, my husband and best friend. Love you babes, cant believe it’s been 6 years since we started this together! 😘 #lifers
.
How long have you been with your significant other!? Married, dating, whatever! Let’s see the love!

✨Beauty is an emergent property. It is the result of the complex interaction of individual parts that only gives rises when all the parts are working together✨

Today’s sermon hit really close to home. I wish I could say these were my words, but these are definitely the word of God spoken through Pastor Paul this morning.
Faith is an emergent property—just like beauty. It’s not made up of just one or two things (like reading your bible & attending certain meetings), it’s all the parts of faith working together in your life to give it an emergent beauty...how you handle hardships, loneliness, forgiveness, and trusting God in dark moments.
God’s intentions towards us are kind. He clothes us in his multicolored cloak of salvation. He sees us as His Son who is pure and blameless, but the hardships of life may try to rob us of this cloak. The world may (and likely will) hate us for this cloak of righteousness. They will tell us we aren’t worth anything. That is the voice of adversity. God has beautiful intentions for our life, but things are going to try to strip the awareness of God away from us.
We must decide to walk with God through this. People can see what your “emergent property” is. They can see if your true desire is Christ, or if your true desire is making money, pleasing someone, fame, success, etc. You choose what you allow to be your emerging property. Allow your faith to drive your “emergent property.” Where are you at this point in time?

Losing your money is not the worst situation. Losing your health is not the worst situation.
Losing your family is not the worst situation.
Losing your identity in Christ is.
Your faith can produce an undeniable quality of beauty in your life. When we fall in love with Christ, it begins to overflow in beauty in your life.
The beauty of Christ in your life can change the lives of others. It is up to you to emerge the beauty of God in your life through all the topography, through all the hard times.
We may expect the hard times to be small. We may feel like that God has forgotten us. We may be angry that we are in them. We may not understand why. What can we do? We just have to hope & trust in God.

🌴🌺60 days😍
I'm still in shock that we will get to spend five days in Maui- just Brandon and I! For free! 😭🙌🏻 who knew that 3 years ago starting this health and happiness thing would be such a blessing for our marriage💕 not only because I'm not a Moody, hormonal mess every single day, or dealing with stress and health issues that made intamacy more difficult.. but also time freedom- less financial worry- and things like 🌴 this. 🌺5 days of uninterrupted time to laugh, lay on the beach, go on adventures, reconnect with our fun selves (and not just our parent selves) and just BE. 🙌🏻 🌴I'm so thankful Abbey was brave enough to reach out to a missionary she met in Zambia- because God had something big in store for us. And I firmly believe there are many of you out there that Don't even realize how much you need this or How wonderful it can be for you, too. I know I didn't! But I'm so thankful that didn't stop me from giving it a shot💕🙌🏻

“An executive family council...involves only the parents. During this time together, parents can review each child’s physical, emotional, and spiritual needs and his or her progress.⁣

“The executive family council is also a good time for wives and husbands to talk about their personal relationships with each other. When Elder Harold B. Lee performed our sealing, he taught us a principle that I believe all couples will find helpful. He said, ‘Never retire without kneeling together, holding hands, and saying your prayers. Such prayers invite Heavenly Father to counsel us by the power of the Spirit’ (⁣”Family Councils” M. Russell Ballard).

About Friday night... 😍😍😍 #allthehearteyes . @chrisstapleton ‘s voice reaches a place and goes to a depth I can’t explain.
