Good-bye, Grinch Heart. Hello, Christmas Joy.

Isn’t it funny how we have a difficult time peeling off the labels?  This is the first time in 4 or 5 years I’ve had my Christmas tree up the weekend after Thanksgiving.  Honestly, most years I feel like the Grinch.  My heart is hard at Christmas, and this usually comes from my own personal mindset that I’m working to overcome with Godly Affirmations (Romans 12:1-2).

This tree is not just greenery, but it represents the gigantic leap I’m taking to unlabel myself as “The Grinch” and affirm my identity in Christ this season and feel God’s peace and joy during this holiday.  


The battle against the Giants in our lives begins when we recognize the Enemy standing in front of us.
I want you to be able to recognize the lies and labels the Enemy has placed upon you.  I want you to know how to use scripture to create Godly affirmations that are grounded in Truth about who you are so that you can defeat the Enemy!

I’ve designed this course to help you become *unlabeled* by the world and affirm who you are in Christ using God’s Word.

Simple and Easy Homemade Play-Dough

A few months ago, I began purging and decluttering in our home.  I threw out donated all the play-doh mess.  Good-bye bucket of empty containers, crazy accessories, and big brown lumps of play-doh.

I’ve noticed since we’ve purged our toys, my children have begun to play and create more together.  This weekend was a prime example of this change.  Asher asked for us to make play-dough, something he and I used to do when the girls were in school and he was still home with me.  When the girls heard this request, they came running to help.

So, we pulled our ingredients from the cabinet and created a small batch together.  This makes them feel special because WE ARE CREATING TOGETHER.  Each one grabs an ingredient, we mix, we cook, we create.  TOGETHER.  (Notice how I’m loving this togetherness!)
They spent several hours using our own kitchen tools and their imagination.  No one argued over colors or accessories.  Seriously, my sweet sister, you do NOT need all the stuff from the store.  Your children need time and space to play and create.

Creating Godly Affirmations

I have to be honest with you all. When a friend first mentioned Morning Affirmations to me, I laughed and thought, Um… NO.

No way was I going to talk to myself in the mirror. No way was I going to buy into “Speak it into Life” kind of mentality. That’s not Godly…

….. Until I realized that it was…. But, ONLY when we claim God’s affirmations about who we are in HIM.
