Day 5 finished at midnight. I workout from home. Sometimes that means a morning workout.... sometimes it’s almost midnight. Working on building a good routine that works for me and our family. My kids see me and say “keep going momma”, but other than that, there’s no crowd cheering me on this late at night. Consistency can be hard when there’s no one else around clapping for you. You gotta make sure you show up for yourself, give yourself a high five and celebrate all that you do. And always remember that no matter what, God is cheering on you every step of the way. .

“Exercise is not optional; it is essential...” written by Herman Pontzer, a Duke professor in evolutionary anthropology, in the latest issue of Scientific American about how we need to view exercise. Exercise isn’t just for weight loss, but is essential for our bodies to function at a cellular level at it’s best between hormone regulation, sleep, stress, preventing illness and avoiding chronic disease. This is so consistent with what I have experienced. I function better when I get my workouts in and am consistent. I feel at my worst when I don’t make time. I am so thankful I found a community that helped me figure out HOW to make it all work with a busy schedule from learning how to do simple meal planning with whole foods to being able to fit in efficient workouts to emotional support.

I am SO excited, nervous, happy, and a little intimidated to start a new 20 minute workout program TOMORROW! 20 minutes is nothing and I know I will be working hard during each minute, but it will be well worth! Last call if you want to join my team!

My date night with Mac! Although he refused to smile for a picture, he really does make a great date. He kisses my hand and tells me I am pretty. What more could I want? ❤️ We started monthly date nights with the kids in 2018. We rotate the kids each month and the parent. It was a big hit, so naturally we are continuing for 2019!

Please go read this book. 📔
.
It is hilarious. It is horrifying.
.
It is heart wrenching. 💔
I’ve had this book on my wishlist for almost a year, and last week it was glaring at me from the shelf in the library.
.
Us Christians, for all the good we try to do, sometimes we are exceptionally sucky at suffering with people. If you want an inside story from someone who was steeped in #prosperitygospel and suddenly found herself wrestling with her own mortality, you need this book. I was challenged and convicted to think more deeply about suffering, death, and especially how to live out long-suffering with those that are suffering.
And how to teach my kids to “mourn with those who mourn” (Romans 12:15) and not explain away every moment of hardship. Read it. You won’t be disappointed. #read #everythinghappensforareason #ordoesit #christianity #suffering #bookstagram #homeschoolmama #everythinghappens

TRY is a word I took out of my vocabulary 4 years ago.
.
.
Think about it. 🤔 Whenever you use that word - you give yourself an out. .
.
If you want the most of life - you gotta go all in. Without an out. No plan B.
.
.
The biggest reason for failure in entrepreneurship is not lack of talent. It’s giving up well before you’ve done the work to see the success. ✨

Don’t be the reason you don’t get there.

“The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever”- Jacques Cousteau
🌊
We managed to get out! Perhaps not to the actual sea itself (too risky with a germy kiddo and too people-y on a 70-degree Saturday for me 😬) but the bay is a close second.
.
Plus, in a spark of brilliance, I threw the second lesson of our Marine Biology unit into my bag and we got to talk about intertidal zones with one right in front of us. It doesn’t get much better than that.
.
Now send lots of thoughts my way because the big seems to be coming down with the littles cold 🤦🏼‍♀️ and I’m not sure I’m going to survive more time sequestered with sick kids. Did I mention I do a dry January? 🙈

Gratefulness💗
-
Everyday when I wake up I try to think of several things I am grateful to God for, even if I don’t feel it. It’s surprising how over time, it’s changed my perspective.
-
Gratitude is an offering precious in the sight of God, and it is one that the poorest of us can make and be not poorer but richer for having made it.-A.W. Tozer
-
No matter what I’m going through in life, it can always be made worse, and that’s where gratitude can start to become the cure for self-pity, self-focus, jealousy, envy, grumbling, complaining, sadness, and so much more.
-
So today, tomorrow, and the day after, I will choose gratefulness.🌸
-
I will give thanks to you, LORD, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.-Psalm 1:9
-
What are you grateful for?🌷

It's been a blanket fort/bear den of a week in our living room. It's where they want to hide out to snuggle stuffed animals or read books. I think this fort will be recreated for several more days this winter.

He's grown to love books, even though he can't read them yet, and it makes me so happy. He flips through the pages and makes up his own stories or asks me to read as he sits next to me excited to hear every detail. I'm so proud of how far he's come this year. ❤️

While December was chock full of arts and sensory activities from frosting cookies to decorating to a tree, January has been more of removing decor and getting back into a regular routine. But, we all need a breath of creative inspiration to forge ahead through the ordinariness of cold winter days. ❄
I'm thankful for the inspiration from @thehomegrownpreschooler for these January days. I had fun mixing colors to freeze water in plastic trays in preparation for this activity. My girls loved sprinkling on various types of salt to test the most effective for melting ice. Of course, the kind made to melt sidewalk ice was indeed the fastest, but Himalayan rock salt was right up there. We also tested kosher diamond crystal salt, sea salt, table salt, and Epsom salts. Art, science, sensory, and suds.

Afterward, I made them a warm bath with clouds of sudsy bubbles of Dawn dish soap and they played with the colored ice until it melted. They were in that tub close to an hour while the guys unloaded and stacked firewood. Easy clean up, fun and simple entertainment. They want to do this activity again another day! Tell me about your creative ideas for indoor play on cold winter days. I need more ideas!

Day 18 of my month long yoga journey is #upwardfacingdog ..
Mommas,if you could for me today..look at yourself in the mirror and tell yourself how awesome you are. How amazing your body is! With loose skin,saggy bellies, and all. These bodies that carried our beautiful babies, birthed them (in whatever way you are able), fed them, and currently allows you to care for them. These amazing bodies that do so much and that our husbands love so much. Look at your amazing body and love it for all that it has done, all that it does and don’t think about one single flaw. Not one! Only love today...

Did you know there’s a lunar eclipse tomorrow?
On Sunday, Jan. 20, North America will witness a rare lunar eclipse caused by the alignment of three factors: it is the year’s first full moon (wolf moon), the moon is at its closest distance to the earth (super moon), and a total lunar eclipse (blood moon). Combined, this will make the moon appear larger, brighter and ‘blood’-red in the sky.
There will only be three super wolf blood moons this century, according to Kat Kelly, an astronomer with the H.R. Macmillan Space Centre, and they may not all be visible from Vancouver. The first took place on Jan. 20, 2000, and the next one won’t be seen until Jan. 31, 2037. #lunareclipse #homeschool #homeschoolmama #homeschoolscience #explorethenight #moonstudy #exploringnaturewithchildren #charlottemasoneducation #sciencekids #mooncycle #homeschooling #homeeducation #homeeducator

This picture might not be as captivating, but it shows a picture of God's love for a group of dear women I get to serve throughout the year.
I spent a long time in my journey wishing and praying for a mentor. A Christian woman that I could really learn from. Two years ago as God called me away from a ministry I loved, I ran into her. And she just happened to be looking for me (or atleast someone with a cricut but I believe it was particularly me😊). She's given me the freedom and opportunity to listen to the Lord and speak life into some sweet ladies!

It took quite a while before I even realized God had answered my prayer. Even today, as I ran late, I could draw on her wisdom that the Lord is always on time and provides just what we need, and I just knew those ladies would get there after me. And they did.
And these roses...a reminder that God loves and cares for me and each of them.
Find the testimonies...listen and learn. It speaks truth and faithfulness into your life and you just might believe it's possible for you too!
