Beauty Comes in All Sizes

May 6, 2018

Beauty comes in all sizes, shapes, colors, and ages. I want every woman to realize you are more than a dress size, more than a number on a scale. You are loved beyond measure! You are God's masterpiece, a one of a kind, like a snowflake. All snowflakes are beautiful and come in all shapes and sizes, and no two are alike.   Just think, God, the creator of the universe, beaches, mountains, flowers, birds, and butterflies thought you were special enough to create one of you! Be the best you that you can be.

Decorating, Fashion and You

April 11, 2018

Decorating. Fashion and You I really enjoy decorating and fashion and decoration. It is so much fun expressing ourselves through our home decor and our clothing! We all have our own sense of style for clothing as well as for our home decor. Decorating as well as fashion lets us be creative and the possibilities are endless! Our creator is the ultimate in creativity, just look at the designs he has placed in nature. Butterflies, birds, and flowers just to name a few, the designs are amazing! Naturally, we have some form of creativity in us, whether it's decorating our home, putting together an outfit, baking a beautiful cake, building or designing a home, painting, storytelling, writing, gardening, flower arranging, and photography. We all have a talent because the creator created us! Soon I will be doing a blog about all the creative things God placed on earth for us to enjoy, I hope you will keep an eye out for it. I love several styles, French country, cottage, the Beach cottage feel (white with light blue) and what I call uptown lodge, it isn't quite as rustic, just to name a few. I wanted to share one of my favorite...

Loving me now…To Lose or Not to Lose? Should That be the Question?

March 30, 2018

To Lose or not to lose, should that be the question? Good health is more than weight loss. Our success is not just measured by the pounds we lose. God loves us "beyond" measure, his love can not be measured. Thank God it's not based on how we measure up! It is not based on weight, IQ, income, body measurements, how much we lose or gain... although he does want us to be in good health so we can live a better life.

Are You Clothed With Confidence

March 19, 2018

Are you clothed with confidence,  dignity, and grace? Proverbs 31:25. It's easy as Women to look in the mirror and only see our faults. Sometimes we are our own worst critic. We compare ourselves to other women that we may think looks prettier or are the size we used to be and would like to be again, but the word says comparing ourselves to others is not wise. Galatians 6: 4- Don’t compare yourself with others. Just look at your own work to see if you have done anything to be proud of. Comparing can steal your confidence.
