Hello!

Welcome to my blog. I put a little bit of everything on here: recipes, faith, DIY and beauty posts. I am so glad you are here! 

A LITTLE THIS, A LITTLE THAT

A LITTLE THIS, A LITTLE THAT

My sister got Chasing Slow by Erin Loechner a few weeks ago. She is letting me read it, and it is so good. Erin's writing style is so interesting and I love the message. I sometimes feel like a chicken with its head cut off trying some new thing to improve myself only to find it didn't work and left me exhausted. I don't want to chase after things that don't matter. 

Lately I have been feeling the effects of lack of time. I don't seem to have enough time to do everything and I realize I don't have time to do EVERYTHING. I am praying that God will continue to show me what He wants me to do because I don't want to go through my life doing things that don't matter eternally. I want to do what God wants me to do rather then exhaust myself and miss out on what God has for me. This book helps you to focus on things that matter eternally and I would highly recommend it!

I was on Instagram a few weeks ago and saw this account's Instagram story showing that she adds a spoonful of coconut oil to her coffee. Coconut oil is really good for you and there aren't many ways it gets into my diet so I thought I would try it out and it is really good! You do have to stir it continually so that you don't get a mouthful of oil, but honestly it is not really oily. I think it enhances the flavor and makes it rich. 

If I find a song I really like I will sing it over and over throughout the day. The song that I have been worshiping to lately is What A Beautiful Name by Hillsong Worship. It is such a pretty song and I love the lyrics. 

This past Saturday, my friend Belle came over and we filmed a video (look for that this week!) and watched the new episodes of When Calls the Heart on Netflix. So many times when we were watching it we would predict what was going to happen, it was so funny. It is almost like we wrote it. Haha.

We are painting the main rooms in our house this week! I can't wait. I love how just a simple change can make a room look so different. I can't wait to show you the finishing product. 

My sister Gillian relaunched her website for Setting House and it looks so good! We use our trivets every day. They are so nice to have. We use them for cooking, hosting, and holding candles. My favorites are Casserole, Cozy Night and Oriole. Each trivet has a story behind it and is so beautiful! 


I hope you enjoyed this post and have a wonderful day! Many blessings.
